Skip to comments.Psychologist teaches mainstream Americans how to beat liberals at their own game
Posted on 01/13/2014 6:56:47 AM PST by mandaladon
For Dr. Timothy Daughtry, a clinical psychologist who has co-authored a book for mainstream Americans, too many citizens think they have done their civic duty if they show up to vote and return to their normal lives.
To Daughtry, they are like summer tourists in politics, whereas the progressives are like the locals.
Weve got to get active now or we are going to lose this republic, Daughtry says. The danger is, he says, that our country is being taken away from us right under our very noses.
He believes that a historic debate is being played out about whether Americans are citizens or subjects of their government.
Conservatives are on defense too much to succeed, he thinks, but also believes that help is on the way as citizens are waking up to the problems caused by both political parties.
We have to make the left start defending socialism instead of us defending liberty, Daughtry said.
Mainstream America started waking up when Republicans and Democrats in Washington embracing bailouts, which he says fundamentally struck Americans as wrong.
Then, the widespread unpopularity of Obamacare became surprisingly irrelevant to a government that rammed it through anyway. Educational textbooks depicting American history through a distorted lens of progressive ideology that glorifies redistribution is another red flag waking up parents, Daughtry believes.
Losing cultural institutions to the left, like the media, education and entertainment, is far more significant, says Daughtry, than the harm done by the U.S. government. Daughtry also discusses how to respond to being called an extremist or a racist in this two-part interview.
He thinks conservatives should not accept the lefts premises, since the left has done incalculable damage to the black community with their policies and programs.

The reason Hussein got elected is quite the opposite of this guy’s theory.
Hussein’s voters are ones that have never voted in their life, have NO IDEA what either candidate’s polocies are, have NO IDEA what problems America is facing but slapped an Obamam sticker on their ride and showed up to support “the brother” because JayZ told them to.
Conservatives have responded. It’s called the Tea Party. You know, that grass roots organization the Republican party is trying to crush.
And Oprah...don’t forget Oprah. Black women, especially middle aged and older, supported Obama like it was their job. Well, it was their job, since they got all sorts of free stuff by doing so.
These type of things have dividends when important decisions come up and you can approach a local politician you know.
The left is a formidable political opponent because their ideology inherently carries no moral restraints on what they will do to attain power.
...Oh yeah, then there is the white guilty liberal.
“I voted for Obama... see how cool and non-racist I am...”

But the media could easily be taken back.
Most of the media (print and TV) is controlled by just a few players (5 to be exact Viacom, AOL Time Warner, Disney, Clear Channel and News Corp). Simply have a conservative billionaire (or a small group of billionaires) buy these out and suddenly overnight conservatives would control nearly all media in the country.
Taking back education is a little tuffer but could be done over time. Unlike the entertainment industry, I don't believe that education is intrinsically liberal, if anything I think education is more naturally intrinsically conservative. But the first thing that MUST be done is to utterly and completely destroy the teachers unions like Reagan destroyed the air traffic controllers.
Here’s a perfect place to start:
Liberals constantly accuse us of being “the party of no” and asking “so what is YOUR plan, then?”
Simply point out that conservatives don’t look to a government “plan” to solve every issue. There is no bigger difference between the two philosophies, and no simpler way to explain it.
Why the Tea Party and others can’t seem to get this through their heads is beyond me. But every time the liberal trap is sprung, the “conservative” falls right into it and starts babbling about “our plan”...
Disagree. This is why the Marxist faggot was elected:
“Losing cultural institutions to the left, like the media, education and entertainment, is far more significant, says Daughtry, than the harm done by the U.S. government.”
Conservative Americans by their nature are the people that are the achievers, the hard workers with their nose to the grindstone. The liberals are the ones leaning on their shovel. They know they can't outwork the other guy, so they come up with ideas on how to take credit for the work.
Conservatives are involved in the productive industries, while liberals are involved in the regulation, communication, or education type industries.
As such, conservatives don't have the time or the inclination to "play politics". And liberals do. This is our fatal flaw.
... a historic debate is being played out about whether Americans are citizens or subjects of their government...
This is very true. Liberals have done a good job of using language ( usually insults and crass accusations) to intimidate those with conservative values into silence. Many good people stay silent out of fear.
Changing minds and hearts must include being unafraid to speak the truth in public even if it comes with personal consequence. Involvement can be as simple as speaking up at the kids bus stop or at the water cooler at work. It requires being unafraid of being labeled a whole host of unpleasant nouns.
The people that own those corporations are part of a very select group. They share an identity. They know the power they wield. The purpose of owning these corporations is not to make money but to control that power and to deny it to anyone outside their group. They would never willingly give up those media assets to anyone other than the "right" people.
A true conservative American patriot with a Trillion dollars and a map to the Fountain of Youth wouldn't even be let in the front door.
============================================= WHAT AMERICANS USE TO KNOW ABT THE DEC/INDEPENDENCE
The first several generations of Americans understood that the Declaration of Independence was the ultimate states rights document. The citizens of the states would delegate certain powers to a central government in their Constitution, and these powers (mostly for national defense and foreign policy purposes) would hopefully be exercised for the benefit of the citizens of the "free and independent" states, as they are called in the Declaration.
The understanding was that if American citizens were in fact to be the masters rather than the servants of government, they themselves would have to police the national government that was created by them for their mutual benefit. If the day ever came that the national government became the sole arbiter of the limits of its own powers, then Americans would live under a tyranny as bad or worse than the one the colonists fought a revolution against.
As the above quotation denotes, the ultimate natural law principle behind this thinking was Jeffersons famous dictum in the Declaration of Independence that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and that whenever that consent is withdrawn the people of the free and independent states, as sovereigns, have a duty to abolish that government and replace it with a new one if they wish.
This was the fundamental understanding of the meaning of the Declaration of Independence that it was a Declaration of Secession from the British empire of the first several generations of Americans. As the 1, 107-page book, Northern Editorials on Secession shows, this view was held just as widely in the Northern states as in the Southern states in 1860-1861.
Among the lone dissenters was Abe Lincoln, a corporate lawyer/lobbyist/politician with less than a year of formal education who probably never even read The Federalist Papers.
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE PREAMBLE We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights...
What came after the Declaration of Independence was the "bill of particulars" against the colonial ruler--King George III ---that justified the declaration and subsequent colonial rebellion.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance, reads one of Jeffersons indictments against the king.
Sounds familiar, doesn't it?
It’s more than attending political meetings. Obama has taken social media and marketing to new heights. While we attend meetings.
The biggest mistake that I have see conservatives makes, over the years, is to think we can win solely from the top down. That is to say, thinking all we have to do is elect a conservative president or Congress and we have won the ideological argument and conservatism will âtrickle downâ. Liberals on the other hand are masters at winning from the bottom up, the âcommunity organizingâ the packing of colleges, school boards, civic groups, the media and local governments with other liberals. This forms an effective âfirewallâ for when conservatives do elect a candidate to a high position, their attempts at reform of stymied by the liberal bureaucracy.
Our “plan” is that, though imperfect, the conservative way — the Constitution and capitalism — is the best there is. They keep believing in utopia. Like Obamacare: the attempt to get everyone “covered” resulted in far fewer people covered than before they started.
