If you watch TV news – and you really shouldn’t waste your time watching the media puppets as they cover mostly negative and depressing events – if it’s about politics and opinions from the left, it’s the same on every channel and from every political spokesperson. Clearly, they are all working from talking points distributed by the Democratic Party and its hundreds of left-wing groups including the media, of course.
Sad to say it, but they really have their act together in their efforts to influence the public to their way of thinking. For example, for three long years all the rage has been Trump’s actions supposedly unbecoming to a President, his disreputable friends, his firings, the Russian stuff and of course the impeachment. You know all this.
While there are more than one hundred national conservative groups lining up behind the leaders such as Heritage, Cato, Heartland and The American Enterprise Institute, there are even more State or local conservative groups. Problem is, they virtually never get together to discuss a joint strategy to defeat the anti-capitalist/socialist views put forth daily by the left.
There is a reason for this. In the case of the left they are pursuing what amounts to a cult religion. Their cause is more important than their individual self-promotion. And, of course, they have billions of dollars at their disposal from left-wing foundations and governments across the world. By contrast, those on the right of the political spectrum are generally independent-thinking individualists reluctant to give up their own viewpoints by compromising on some middle ground. The fact that they lack access to the huge funding sources supporting the left means conservative groups are often in competition with each other for the limited funding available and so are usually reluctant to cooperate for that reason as well. Therefore, conservative voices spread thinly across society while the left pounds the same nail home every day, year in year out, until the public repeats it like an old song in their heads.
Nikita Khrushchev, former Premier of the old Soviet Union, said in 1959 about the United States:
“Your children’s children will live under communism. You American’s are so gullible. No, you won’t accept Communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism. We won’t have to fight you; We’ll so weaken your economy, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”
Our friend John Droz, a retired physicist, leads the battle against socialism in New York State, and their desire to power the world with wind and solar energy. He believes that conservatives cannot gain victory with the public unless and until they begin to recognize what approaches must be taken in unison to begin turning the tide of the political juggernaut that has been launched against the American public. The climate change fiasco, now mentioned in nearly every newspaper story no matter the topic, is perhaps the best case in point. Mankind has no impact on the Earth’s thermostat⏤yet the left has convinced most of the public otherwise.
Droz suggests holding discussions between conservative groups on a variety of topics to determine an effective and cooperative path to reveal the lies we hear daily in the media. Some of his topical ideas include:
- learning to tell stories better when we communicate;
- changing minds by changing perspective;
- how to get the media to make our case;
- and perhaps the most important is the well-worn statement that united we stand, divided we fall. Conservatives must start to work far more cooperatively if we are to have a chance to defeat the powerful forces that oppose us at every turn.
All of which makes the point that currently we lack a coherent overall strategy to achieve success. Otherwise, every candidate for the Democratic Presidential nomination would not be so bold as to support a socialist mandate even though it makes no sense whatsoever.
How can they seriously believe they can sell a Green New Deal that will send us back to life in the 19th century when virtually all fossil fuels remained in the ground? How can they seriously believe that they can give all health care and education away for free by only taxing the rich?
They can do it because a lost generation of young people educated in government schools never heard what socialism did to Russia, Cuba and Venezuela.
Somehow, some way the right must get their act together.
