Can Democrats Overcome Their Agenda?

Posted on April 18, 2023 by Robert Ringer


Watching the sagas of incapacitated Dems like Sleepy Joe, Diane Feinstein, and John Fetterman unfold, even died-in-the-wool party loyalists are becoming concerned.  With Democrats now the party of wokesters and jokesters, one wonders how it can survive, let alone stay in power.

Notwithstanding their remarkable ability to outlie and outmaneuver their enemies, Democrats have a habit of doing some really dumb things, often a result of their lack of self-awareness.  And holding the 2024 Democratic National Convention in Chicago is a really dumb thing.  Is it just a Freudian slip on the part of party leaders or is there something more sinister at play here?

Let’s face it, much of politics is about optics.  Does the party of Satanism not realize that the 1968 Democratic National Convention is still remembered for the bloody riots surrounding it, riots that left 11 dead, 48 wounded, and more than 2,000 arrested?  The antiwar hippies had already succeeded in pressuring Lyndon Johnson into stepping aside and not run for reelection in 1968, and they were becoming louder and more violent by the day. 

Today, with young people even more radical than their counterparts of the late sixties, Democrats are likely to have their hands full trying to control the Gen Z and Millennial crowd that is sure to descend upon the windy city.  In 1968, they were protesting the Vietnam War — especially the government’s lies about the Vietnam War — but today the newest lie-infested war, this one in Ukraine, has not yet gotten their full attention.  Instead, emotionally disturbed young activists are angry about a litany of other things, mostly silly stuff like “climate change,” trans issues, and (yawn) racism.

In comparing the upcoming 2024 convention to 1968, also keep in mind that two major changes have occurred over the past 50+ years.  First, it is now acceptable for those who vote Democrat to engage in violence.  That’s right, if you’re a Democrat in 2023 America, you can riot and loot to your heart’s content, even set fire to government buildings, without fear of being incarcerated — or even prosecuted.

Second, whereas 1960s protestors railed against the capitalist system and “the man,” Gen Z and Millennial protestors are now aligned with the man.  In 1968, no one could have imagined corporate America entering into an unholy alliance with young, anti-establishment leftists, but time has a habit of changing things.  What it amounts to is a voluntary shakedown where both sides fully understand what’s going on (the enemy of my enemy is my friend), but they’re okay with it because everyone benefits.

Violence aside, political watchers are quite curious about what the 2024 Democrat platform will look like.  We know that their real agenda includes such unpopular items as defunding the police, gun control, trans issues, open borders, massive government spending, banning gas-powered vehicles, reparations for an impossible-to-define group of people, infanticide, tax increases, student-debt cancellation, and more.  The question is, how in the world do Democrats plan to sell their radical agenda to voters?

The answer, I believe, is that they won’t try to sell it directly.  Instead, they will focus more on distractions, hyperbole, name-calling, and virtue signaling than on real issues.  Anything to take voters’ minds off of serious issues like inflation, crime, security leaks, spy balloons, rigged elections, fentanyl deaths, COVID misinformation, bank failures, green legislation that benefits the rich and hurts the poor, and, most important of all, the “China threat” (including the fact that Joe Biden has been on China’s payroll for years).

The biggest distraction of all will be the Democrats’ attempt to continue making Donald Trump the focal point of the nation’s problems.  It’s absurd, of course, but why not continue with something that has worked so beautifully in the past?

As to real issues, Democrats will gratuitously address them, but in doing so they will employ their specialty — lying.  More specifically, they will tell 180-degree whoppers, i.e., lies that are the polar opposite of the truth.  These include such doozies as Republicans want to defund the police, the border is in chaos because Republicans refuse to pass a serious immigration-reform law, inflation has been caused by Donald Trump, greedy capitalists, and Vladimir Putin … blah, blah, blah.

Will their blatant chicanery work?  Unfortunately, yes.  The only question is to what extent?  Remember, unlike Republicans, at least a third of Democrats will always vote for their party’s candidates, quality be damned.  Their focus is always on destroying their evil enemies at all costs, even if they themselves are hurt in the process.  The question then becomes, how many halfway “moderate” Democrats will say they’ve had enough pain and jump ship?

That said, there’s also a huge wild card in the 2024 race, and it’s not on the Democrat side of things.  It’s what the outcome of the ugly war between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis will be.  If the war is allowed to spin out of control, Democrats might just succeed in retaining the White House.  It’s a frightening thought, but as we witnessed in 2020, it can actually happen.  Attention Ron and Don:  For the sake of the country’s survival — and probably your own political careers — keep in mind that discretion is the better part of valor. 

Finally, as election time grows near, let us not forget that Democrats are sure to go nuclear with their newest version of an October surprise — or maybe two or three October surprises — so nothing is certain.  Combine that with their highly sophisticated election-fraud capabilities, and Republicans will once again have their hands full no matter who they nominate.

    I believe though that Ron DeSantis is still the best choice for the Republican nomination despite what the present polls are saying to the contrary. Yet no matter who the nominee is, the campaign will be brutally fought to the finish. Expect voter fraud on a level the same as in 2020 or even worse. The Dirty Dems will throw everything they have at them including the kitchen sink, and more! So, the GOP needs to get ready for the biggest fight ever if they expect to win!

    I have to disagree with some of your points on this one. I used to say that eventually sensible people had to wake up and finally push back and punish liberals for all their radical idiotic ideas, but not only has that not happened, but other seemingly common sense people jumped in. Budweiser is a perfect example. A kid that just took a marketing 101 class should have been able to spot that disaster in the making with basic concepts of message and audience, but they didn't.

    Sadly I have come to the conclusion that people are never going to "wake up" that opportunity passed us by a long time ago. These radicals will simply keep pushing these issues. They have poll tested them to know they can continue to get away with it. If it is one thing politicians are very good at it is figuring out how to stay in power. If they thought for a nano-second that following and pushing any of these idiotic ideas would result in a backlash and potentially remove them from power they would never do it. The problem is the fabric that makes up country has simply changed. People like us are becoming a fast growing minority and our best chance at freedom is to quit trying to create it for people that don't want or appreciate it. Instead focus on what you can personally do to make your own individual life more free and filled with opportunities and quit hoping people will wake up, because they won't.

    "Is it just a Freudian slip on the part of party leaders…?"

    Freud's first mention of his eponymous "slip" occurs in his 1901 publication, “The Psychopathology of Everyday Life.” But in 1845, in his "The Imp of the Perverse," another writer described in detail a part of the mind that likes to blurt out the worst possible thing. These gaffes should thus be referred to as Poevian Slips, after the brilliant writer of horror and prescient truth, Edgar Allen Poe.

    I don't think anything will change for the better until we fix voting. My brother said that they had rigged the election for Hillary and didn't anticipate how many would show up for President Trump. We could see them working on the rigging during the mid-terms and then the final coup de grace by blatantly decreasing President Trump's votes on air. It felt like something out of the Outer Limits…We control the horizontal, we control the vertical, we control your thoughts, we control what's considered moral.

    The dems have to love the Trump ads attacking DeSantis on Social security and medicare issues.( along with the 3 fingers inside the pudding).I am not sure the repubs should have kept Rona M. as the chairperson. She failed miserably with Trump in the midterms.Until the repubs learn to ballot harvest like the Dems,they aren't going to win in the tough(toss-up) States.I still believe DeSantis can win in Arizona,Georgia,and maybe Wisconsin or Pa, but Trump will lose those states.(and that's what the polling shows now.)

    Watching the decline of blue states and blue cities in red states, many are voting with their feet. Oddly, in spite of that management won't ever change and it is well beyond the 30% who are always fooled. I suspect that there may be some degree of vote control at work. So for our national elections, we return to battleground purple states where we must ensure integrity of the vote. Obviously those opposed to the policy failures of most Democrats need to be motivated to actually vote rather than complain. Republicans seem incapable of motivating voters.

    Testing testing is anyone out there? Elections? Are you serious? Doesn't anyone realize that this entire system of politics, economics, medical, the entire system that we have created since this country was formed, needs to be destroyed and a new society, a civilization which has never existed in recorded history be created. Every foundation stone reduced to powder, no building upon old stones. Leave them as ruins.
    This country has never been great, warlike yes but never great. To be great and admired one needs to have built upon natural law, truth, fact, ethics, and real freedom. This country has never produced those attributes for greatness. The American people have been willfully ignorant throughout the decades of time, willfully accepting what they have been told, willfully conditioned and programmed by their own desires and now in 2023 the topic of elections is being discussed like it matters? Everyone has been lied to since day one of this country and yet it is paramount that we elect a politician who isn't a programmed lair? These guys have been puppets, order takers, root juice peddlers since this country was formed. And let's skip the " In god we trust" BS. Never was a factor, christian nation illusion.
    You want change? Tear it all down and begin afresh. Trump, Biden, DeSantis, Mickey Mouse, Santa, Republicans, Democrats, all stage actors following a script and we are the willfully movie extras as part of the production. Stupid humans, no better than Flintstones.

    My wife, who voted for Trump in 2016, has been turned. She will never vote for a Republican, especially Trump. She makes good arguments. What have Republicans done for the middle and working class? I know a lot has been said about big culture issues, which I agree with Republicans, but what specific policies have helped the middle and working class. It would be helpful to know. As it stands, I can't point to anything and say voting Republican is good for me and my family. That said, I don't see clear cut benefits for voting Democrat either. As it stands, I don't think any politician truly cares about the American people. They only cow tow corporations, elites, Military-Industrial-Complex, and foreign governments.
