Election Day – Are you Voting for a “New Way” or a “Lemming!”
Today is an election day in my state. Of course the local radio stations always get right into the middle of the fray. One in particular, “Elliot in the Morning,” is a little like the Howard Stern of “suburbia” to me. My two kids, 23 and 25, love him, naturally. To be honest, he can be really funny and at times very intuitive!
I had to go out in my son’s car early this morning and when I started her up, who assaulted my hearing, you got it, “Elliot!” At that time, he had a discussion going with kids whose dad had had sex changes. It was a very interesting discussion. Then he got a discussion going about the elections this morning.
One caller stood out most in my mind. She voted for Obama. She also said that she generally voted by her party preference first. But, she was excited about Obama and Hillary because they were making History! As the discussion continued, Elliot tried to determine if she was voting for a candidate because it was so great to have a Black or Woman candidate or because they were the best candidate for the job. He made a point of saying he was all for a Black or Woman President if the candidate was the best qualified for the job!
That caller and several others “did not” get his message. All most could say who voted for either Obama, Clinton, or a “progressive” or Democratic candidate was it is time for a change now. The one side had been in there long enough and it was time to give the other party a chance. They felt it was time for a “new direction!” But, none offered a clear cut view of what that new “direction” entailed. Get real people. Get your head out of your:
Our freedom depends on your vote. Instead of accepting the “party line,” check out their voting record through Thomas. It is also a good idea to check out candidates, Democratic especially, but, not exclusively. Many of the so called “Progressive” candidates are very involved in the “Socialist Movement” in America. They are either supporters of Mao, Castro, Trotsky, or other communist dictators or or ideologist. Many are supporters or members of organizations run by Workers World Party, fronted by ANSWER and IAC; and, UFPJ, Code Pink, and NION who are members of a coalition. Members of the Progressive Caucus are all also members of DSA, a member organization of UFPJ and the “largest socialist organization in America!”
In order “to bring new life to the progressive voice in U.S. politics,” the Progressive Caucus has worked closely with Progressive Challenge, a project of the Institute for Policy Studies. Progressive Challenge is a coalition through which the activities and talking points of leftist groups are synchronized and harmonized with one another, producing coordinated, mutually-reinforcing propaganda from some 200 seemingly-unconnected groups.
These are the groups behind the “new way” slogan being thrown around by the Democratic leadership and those cross-over Republicans [oops Democrats]. Before you vote, make sure you know who you are really voting for and what they really hope to accomplish. For heaven’s sake, stop being sheep. Better yet, uncurl your nose from the tail of the ‘elephant” in front of you and take a closer look to the left and the right and straight ahead or you may find that you have become a “lemming!”
