The Spot On Quote Of The Day…

…is awarded to W. James Antle, over at AmSpecBlog, for understanding what we’re up against on several of the fronts:

…The Republican leadership empowered by yesterday’s election received a gift it did not deserve. The GOP has been returned to power without showing it learned its lesson. And many of the swing voters who aided that restoration are independents, the very same fickle and pragmatic centrists who gave us unified Democratic control of the federal government in the first place.

Soon the Democrats, inspired by the example of Bill Clinton, will look for ways to turn the swing voters against the Tea Party. They will seek to undermine the coalition that produced Republican victories just as the Republicans shattered the coalition that elected the Democrats in 2006 and 2008.


I refer you to a posting of mine from 20 May of this year [The Left’s Dependency] where I discuss the two groups [The Instinctualists and The Sheeples] that the Left targets in it’s efforts to demonize the Right.  Methinks we can expect them to follow the same chapter in the Leftist Playbook they’ve utilized in the past.

    We will have something going for us in 2012 the Democrats in CA and NY can’t buy: The red states, especially the red states that flipped legislatures, are going to start recovering from the mugaberies of America’s Last Black President much sooner than the states in hock to their unions and social dependents.

      Richard: I agree 100%. See my posting on Massachusetts.

    …except that many *in* the Tea revolution are “pragmatic centrists” who, for their pragmatism, see the paradigm differently. It is Liberty and Tyranny emerging. Democrat v Republican, Conservative v Liberal… all of that is becoming obsolete. The press will press on with it, of course – but the questions will be asked by those pragmatists: Can we afford this? Does this expand government at the cost of my freedom?

    Not that Mr. Antle is entirely wrong – surely some can be peeled away. The point is that it is becoming more and more obvious that any move Leftwards – even a “kinder, gentler” left turn, takes us too far. We can’t sustain the debt or the economic losses or our security… especially when the Left’s agenda of dissolving the country is out in the open. There is only one direction back to security and prosperity and those “pragmatic centrists” know where it lies.

    Ran: I would quote to you Lady Margaret Thatcher – The facts of life are conservative. This is a struggle between the Left and the Right, between those who believe man can be re-engineered in the image of Illuminated Men like themselves and those who believe man was created in the image of God, who granted his creation Free Will, and is fallable.
