There are always too many Democratic congressmen, too many Republican congressmen, and never enough U.S. congressmen.  Author Unknown


That Republican 2010 Landslide and What It Means

Conventional wisdom has that the Republican Party will kick butt in the midterm elections. Soon the actual results will be posted. Trusting that electronic machines are accurate is totally another matter. What is certain is that incumbents face an uphill battle to retain their privileges. Will it make a meaningful difference if the GOP takes control of the House of Representatives and even the Senate? How many times have you heard this is the most important election ever?

Old horse warriors from hard fought campaigns seldom believe their own party line rhetoric. Political pronouncements are worth about as much as a mailer that arrives a day late. Elections are a spectacle, especially in off years. The more that people yearn for substantive change the further out of reach it turns out to be. Why is disappoint the norm?

It starts with the political culture and it ends with the next crop of political hacks. Folks, elections thwart the will of the people because the party structure is designed to prevent true reformers from being elected. Even in the rare instance that an actual hero is fortunate enough to carve out a majority tally, the legislative body he or she enters abhors any rebellious attitude of changing systemic corruption.

Add to this dilemma the shoddy record Republicans chalked up when they were last the majority. Joyful celebration of a GOP landslide only helps DC real estate brokers. That is exactly the reason why so many people refuse to participate in the process. How many election cycles do you have to endure before you admit that incumbents only leave, when told that their time of serving the political elite is up? Both Republicans and Democrats are clones about power distribution. Indoctrination into party boot camp is the regiment drill for freshman legislators.

Back in 1945 Frank Chodorov wrote these words,

"It is this transference of power from voter to elected agents that is the crux of republicanism. The transference is well-nigh absolute. Even the constitutional limitations are not so in fact, since they can be circumvented by legal devices in the hands of the agents.

If we quit voting. Such abstinence would be tantamount to this notice to politicians: since we as individuals have decided to look after our affairs, your services are no longer needed.

Remember that the proposal to quit voting is basically revolutionary; it amounts to a shifting of power from one group to another, which is the essence of revolution. As soon as the nonvoting movement got up steam, the politicians would most assuredly start a counterrevolution. Measures to enforce voting would be instituted; fines would be imposed for violations, and prison sentences would be meted out to repeaters".

Just consider how much worse the political environment has deteriorated since the end of World War II. For political junkies who want the latest score board examine Election Projections. The more significant races are among Governors, with a projected loss to Democrats of seven seats. When redistricting comes after the 2010 census, Republican governors have the opportunity to redraw state districts to their advantage. Gerrymandering is a bipartisan practice.  

The Hill reports a Midterm blowout: 50 or more Dem seats set to fall in the election.

"The Hill’s data confirm other public polling and expert predictions, some of which put the historic wave even higher than the 52 seats Democrats lost in 1994 and the 71 they lost in 1938.

Pollster Stuart Rothenberg wrote Tuesday that Democrats face the potential of "a political bloodbath the size of which we haven’t seen since the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt."

The coattails of a large voter turnout will demonstrate a discontent over the ultra extremists that surround the Obama junta. Do not be deceived that Republicans have finally found religion. They just are the "out party" and the "in party" has pushed the envelope of State/Capitalism to the brink. Although the excitement of reversing Obamacare is appealing, the practical reality is that the POTUS will veto any rational attempt to prevent the wholesale destruction of the American economy and health care.

How far will the Democrats go? Answer how foul is the stench of voter fraud!

In the home state of Senator "Boss" Harry Reid, you get this KVVU report from Las Vegas.

"Clark County election officials insisted on Tuesday that electronic voting machines were not malfunctioning at polling locations are some voters complained that Sen. Harry Reid's name had been pre-selected.

Controversy arose after Boulder City resident Joyce Ferrara complained to FOX5 that when she went to vote for GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle, Reid's name was already checked.

"Something's not right," Ferrara said. She claimed her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen".

No doubt the machine did not malfunction, they are designed to register the intended result of selection of the elite’s choice. Voter fraud is a core Democratic principle and along with their union partners, is practiced with all the intensity of a serial killer. Watch, Top Union Official Caught on Tape Discussing Voter Fraud.

If the Democrat leadership is so fearful of a Republican takeover, what should the public fear from a GOP possible controlled House, Senate or Statehouses? Two viewpoints clash with their answer.

Bruce Walker in the article, Good News for GOP and Great News for Conservatives, reasons,
"What does this conservative majority mean? It means that Democrats reject the label of "liberal" and embrace "moderate." It means the left, who invariably tag all conservatives as "far-right-wing," "ultra-conservative," or some insulting term, indeed recognize the existence of ordinary conservatives who favor smaller government, lower taxes, states' rights, restoration of traditional moral values in schools and media, and the de-politicization of everyday life. There is a vast gulf between Stalinists who occupy the choke points of education, information, government, and entertainment in America and us, the huge conservative majority. This disconnect is so vast that there are two Americas: the ocean of conservatives and the small, delusional islands of leftists whose ignorance of America is so profound that they might as well be colonial governors from some European kingdom. It means that "Flyover Country" includes much more than those states called "Jesusland." Flyover Country is all of America, except for imperial enclaves in Washington, Manhattan, Hollywood, and those leftist monasteries called universities. Even Gallup concurs: conservatives outnumber liberals in every state of the union".

Mr. Walker expresses the key insight that recognizes that America is fundamentally divided. The split is irrevocable and necessary. What possible common ground can a country share with Statists that plot to destroy the essence of the Republic?

The victim culture of the left has a different viewpoint. Mary Shaw in her essay, If Republicans win, concludes,


"If the Republicans win enough of the less highly publicized House races throughout this nation, the Democrats could lose its majority on that side of Congress, likely rendering the House as incapable of productive work as the Senate has been in the past two years.

If the Republicans win these elections, it will further embolden the Tea Partiers for 2012. (Can you say "President Palin"?)

And, if the Republicans win these elections, it will be a direct result of the stubborn attitudes of the disappointed Democrats who chose to stay at home and let it happen".

This analysis is as lame as the fantasies of "do-gooders" who want the government nanny to usher in an age of universal plenty, as long as it does not come out of the pockets of the privileged elites. Only a political novice would claim that sincere Tea Party advocates would support a NeoCon like Sarah Palin. No wonder fair weather Democrats seldom vote; not out of principle, but because they are too confused to "get it".

The Republican Party’s attempt to co-opt the spontaneous spirit of the Tea Party geneses illustrates the panic that both entrenched parties have from a true populist movement. The mind dead voters who continually vote for the lesser of two evils, or adhere to the squishy William Buckley rule guarantee perpetual servitude. "The
Buckley Rule is, ostensibly, that you vote for the most electable conservative option (in the primary) against a Democrat in November".

Getting beyond the inevitability that only a Democrat or Republican has the right to rule is totally un-American. Mr. Chodorov’s option makes more sense than conferring your sacred consent to a corrupt governance system. The Last Hurrah warns, "some of you condemn the Electoral College for not reflecting the Will of the People? Think again. Making the 'Machine' the final judge of what is a fair election is like giving the keys to your house to your neighborhood rapist". Democrats seek to register illegal aliens for voting. Republicans voted for the Patriot Act. How can either be trusted? A GOP landslide will be the last test for Republicans. If they fail, no need to revisit the topic of elections. Yes, Mr. Chodorov a revolutionary change is necessary.

Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule - and both commonly succeed, and are right.  H.L. Mencken, 1956
