Are you a “Bitter Clinger” like me? If so, this editorial points up some encouraging facts.
A June 2010 Gallup poll showed that 42 percent of Americans described themselves as conservatives, up five points from 2008, against 20 percent who describe themselves as liberals, down two points from 2008. A July 2010 Gallup poll found that levels of patriotism are generally on the rise in America but are declining among liberals and Democrats. The latest poll by Democracy Corps, the outfit run by longtime Democratic advisers James Carville and Stan Greenberg, found that 55 percent of likely voters thought the word “socialist” described Mr. Obama either “well” or “very well.”
There are a lot more of us than there are of them. Still uncertain is whether a minority cabal of elitist anti-Americans can control the agenda and direction of our country. The mainstream media is firmly in their hands, and they are brazen and dedicated propagandists.
Rarely if ever in American history has a government been so at odds with the views of mainstream voters. It has become clear that the current crowd in Washington will not serve as trustworthy stewards of the hopes and aspirations of the majority of Americans. This government has saddled us with debt, fueled wild expansion of government power, increased Washington’s interference in everyone’s daily lives and made the country weaker as the world becomes more dangerous. It’s no wonder the people are growing increasingly tired of change wrought by the O Force.
Good news! Rejoice!
