Opinion written by George McClellan:
Their first problem is that after decades of change, from an American Political Party to a Marxist-Leninists one, they lost their American message, fumbled their election opportunities and have now even lost their ability to promote one. They don’t know who they really are.
If any party wants to be taken seriously in this post Trump, return to Americanism era, they had better field candidates who are worth a damn. The contest for Georgia’s 6th District, the seat vacated by Dr. Tom Price, Trump’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, is an example. Out of no where, the Democrats, desperate to stay in the game, fielded a youthful John Ossoff, a film maker with a short work government history (shamelessly aggrandized), as a congressional aide to Georgia Rep., Hank Johnson, (yes, that Hank Johnson who asked a General Officer at a congressional hearing, if he, the General, wasn’t concerned the Island of Guam would “capsize” with the addition of a US Marine Brigade adding to the weight there?)
Do you remember the expression on the Generals face. Bewilderment! He would have been in his rights to politely excuse himself from the proceedings and quietly leave the room. The media quickly rallied with spin control telling us that’s not what he (Johnson) said (which he did) but meant something else and, after all, he meant well and should be forgiven. Possibly! I could accept that for one who’s highest level of education was to be the sixth grade, but not from a overpaid ignorant politician. Well, he is a Democrat after all!
Ossoff, on the other hand, can’t even vote in the district he wants to represent, but lives ten minutes away with his girl friend of twelve years, while she studies to be a doctor. He was flummoxed by an interviewer who challenged him on his residency then asked, about his girl friend of twelve years, “when are you going to marry her?” The silence was deafening!
Conservatives should attend Democrat rally’s for candidates challenging Conservatives incumbents and ask them, if you can, two questions: Do you, or do you not, support the Constitution of the United States of America? The answer invariably will be “Yes, I do!” The follow up question should then be: “Then why are you running as a Democrat? Then stand back and wait to be assaulted, verbally by the screamers or even physically by the knuckle dragging Neanderthals who often show up at conservative rallies and speeches.
Among other tools available to advance Progressive programs are the “shock troops”, of organized street thugs, i.e.: Black Live Matters, The New Black Panther Party, and even, occasionally, the Flower of Islam, Louis Farrakhan’s pseudo Islamic followers. Don’t forget the invaluable contributions by the snowflake populations that can be rallied from out of nearby colleges and universities. They’ll come for certain if they can earn extra credit in civics.
The Georgia 6th District contest is in limbo until June 20th. Ossoff, the only Democrat candidate didn’t get the 50% plus one vote to win outright as Democrats had hoped, despite spending several millions of dollars, while the Republicans, forming up in their usual circular firing squad, fielded eleven candidates, the top go getter being Karen Handle at 18%. She will win! All total, more Republican votes were cast then Democrat ones, so Junes runoff won’t be easy.
Republicans would do well to focus on the Democrats lack of an American message. They are Socialists and their ideas was tossed out in three successive American elections. So, make ‘em defend their progressivism, Make ‘em fight for it. Make it painful. But make it!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (19Apr17)
