How times have changed. Fifty six percent of voters, identifying themselves as independents, voted to put Barack Hussein Obama in the Presidency. Whether caught up in the glitz and glitter of a campaign choreographed like a Radio City music hall performance, or the historical moment of voting for a black man for President… some certainly voting for Obama thereby willing away the ghosts of slavery past and the much flacked, (at least by the statist press) so-called white guilt.
Other independents who would normally tend towards voting on the right, disgusted by the dismal performance of George Bush and the Republicans, joined the exodus of many Republicans and self-identified conservatives. Many Republicans and conservatives were lukewarm about the candidacy of John McCain, for all the reasons I, and many writers, have stated. Conservatives and Republicans seem to have longer memories than their DeMarxist counterparts, and we’re not nearly as fast to forgive and forget. John McCain was a deeply flawed Presidential candidate, just as he is a deeply flawed Senator… at least from a conservative point of view… and we sure as heck haven’t forgotten about him.
Barack Obama entered office destroying an already destabilized economy. Independents tend to be slightly right-of-center, and as the months of the Obama regime played out the shine started coming off of the independents’ expectations that Obama would indeed be a ‘post racial’ uniter, bringing down barriers between Americans and ushering in an era of prosperity. At least, that’s what you believed if you listened to his repetitive messages.
Independents, by July 2010, have come to realize just how badly they’d been snookered.
They’re not likely to forgive or forget either, and Obama’s dismal polling among independents does not bode well for Obama or his Marxist cabal. Thirty eight percent, as opposed to the huge percentile advantage he once held. An eighteen point drop is enough to make all but the most secure DeMarxists extremely nervous. Despite all the diversions and political sideshows, they know that independents quite often swing elections.
As November rapidly approaches, the fact that the growing power of the Patriot Movement, with it’s clear conservative message, is attracting large numbers of independents and disillusioned Democrat voters is looming large. Independents and Republicans are understandably still very skeptical of the Republican hierarchy, who have a bare four months to articulate a message that will convince us that they have the bare-knuckle guts and ability to provide the leadership we’re looking for.
As Obama continues his radical extremist march to forever destroy this country as we understand it, his numbers and policies continue to unravel. The greatest danger we face now is that as the DeMarxists feel the end coming, they will be more and more desperate to complete their agenda.
