“The Long Tail of Politics??”
From Isaac Garcia’s Blog comes a post, Barack Obama and The Long Tail of Politics about the latest trend in campaigning which shows how a candidate can literally draw the cockroaches out of their cracks to cast their votes in favor of a candidate. Garnering contributions as small as $5.00 to $10.00, millions can be quickly drawn in and a candidate propelled into the forefront of the political arena. All of this is accomplished by presenting the appearance or illusion of a politician speaking to “me,” the individual! In actuality, this is an example of socialism at its best!
But, this is not a new approach. The socialist movement under the machinations of IAC, ANSWER, UFPJ, and the rest of the thousands of small coalitions they have established at local levels are something these organizations have been implementing for some time. It is the culmination of over twenty years of planning. The Internet, however, has provided them the means they needed to accomplish their goals.
The article takes a different approach to what is happening. At least that is my perception from reading it. But, basically, I think the mechanics are the same. I say this because as I read the article, I get the impression that the writer sees no real organizing force behind this trend. On the other hand, I do see a driving force. This is exactly what the socialists organizations have been talking about on their sites for some time now. The sudden development and rapid growth of the Internet simply provided an unexpected means to carryout a well organized and thoughtful plan years in the development.
America, according to socialists is the only Democracy that has failed to date to embrace socialism. The determination of socialists to overcome American resistance has become a driving force and focal point for socialists world wide! What is amazing to me is that socialist regimes are collapsing and failing world wide. So, why the determination to continue to push for a failed system and topple a successful system?
