The American Voter, a Real Disappointment

The Republican party is looking towards the next election.  Do you think that the voter is smart enough to understand all of the political rhetoric and vote responsibly in the next election? I Contend that the American voter is too stupid and the Democrats know it. Most people don’t even pay any attention to the elections until it is time to vote. Basically, the population will vote the same way they did 4 years ago.   You have the 40 -40 split of the Democrats and Republicans. Then there is the 20 percent left over, that are the lunatic fringe voters, that will determine who gets elected. Save a tree, pro-abortion, green earth and ad infinitum.

Now you see why political endorsements by movie stars are so important. The Democrats have gotten into sports and movies.  People in these fields influence young voters, that is all they watch. Youth tries to emulate their heroes and be just like them. What these movie stars or athletes say, has political impact.

Although not many people still subscribe to the newspapers, they are pretty much in the Democrat’s control. Instead of reporting “Trump believes the election was stolen.”  The copy reads “Trump falsely believes the election was stolen.” The reader is not given the option to form an opinion, rather it is hard wired into the article. 

If we look at the internet, everything is hidden from the unbiased voter.  Material is censored from the internet. Views on the Corona virus, that do not spout the political correctness of the Democrat party, never make it to the internet.  They are censored as “mis-information.”  Many very prominent doctors have released papers on their successful treatment of the Corona virus only to be labeled “Mis-information.” Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine are not even mentioned as a prophylactic or as an initial treatment for symptoms.  Your doctor cannot prescribe these medicines, they are on a list of “do not prescribe medications if you want to keep your license.” Good luck on trying to get a prescription.  My two doctors refused to write a prescription for either drug.

 The socialists have gotten into our education system and colored the thinking of our youth.  The demand to destroy our rich historical heritage is not what we need to have. The Confederates lost the civil war, but the memory of that war is a testament to our heritage and a tribute to those who died in the fight.  Tearing down monuments does not change history. It was a war of great sacrifice and many lives were lost on both sides. Remembering them all, is what counts.

The next election should be an overwhelming Republican victory, but maybe it won’t.  Democracies don’t last long, probably because the voters love all of the free stuff promised by the politicians.


As a side note, one million illegal immigrants have been let into the country.  Corona virus is running rampant with these people and no one appears to be dying from it; It kind of makes you wonder about how lethal the virus is. Just maybe we are being gaslighted by the Democrats in power and by the press.

If the virus isn't lethal to ill, old people then there would be some trouble in explaining the excess deaths during the surges of Spring 2020 and Winter 2020/21.

Maybe the illegal immigrants are overwhelmingly young and in passable health.

As for democracies, as you say you can't expect them to last long because of the perverse incentives they bring.

I knew I'd seen it well put somewhere:

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship." -- Alexander Tytler

Hi dearieme

A lot of the news is distorted.

The median age for those dying of the virus is 80

89 percent of the dead are over the age of 65.

Average life expectancy in the US is 76 for men and 78 for women

Initial survivability to the disease was 99.9 percent. .1 percent of 340 million is 340,000(projected death rate per year). Now with the vaccine and those who have had the disease, it should taper down quickly.

Plus the new version of the disease is more virulent, but very much less lethal.

The press has panicked the masses with fear using miss-information. Try to speak up and you are censored, so I don't talk about it much.

Hi dearieme

Thank you for the link.

If you have the time, Google "Alexis de Tocqueville Quotes." These quotes are from 170 years ago when he toured the US as a young man.

“The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.”
― Alexis de Tocqueville

I agree with you there, Jim.

Masks don't work. Good ventilation in offices, houses, restaurants etc probably does work.

On the whole I think lockdowns have been a disaster.

How will the voters react to the capitulation in Kabul?

Hi dearieme

I think the word impeachment comes to mind.

No one appears to be dying from COVID in the immigrant population? 56% of immigrants surveyed report they have a relative who was hospitalized, or died from COVID.

I think only in America can a pandemic level virus be a political opinion.

Has the government swayed data? Yes, but you cannot fake the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people nation-wide. Nor can one fake the fact that COVID-19 is a highly contagious virus.

I have relatives I grew up with (cousins) who caught COVID-19 before the vaccines rolled out, and they are all dealing with lingering negative health side effects of this virus.

Most likely, this virus originated in a Chinese Bio Lab and was purposely set loose upon the world after Trump enacted tariffs on Chinese imports. Their dictator, Xi, is a known Maoist and Communist and believes in the ultimate domination of the world by China.

Hi Anon

7,600 people die every day in the US from normal causes. Covid is not a killer disease for 99.9 percent of the population, it is all hype.

79% of the deaths are of people over the age of 74. Life expectancy is only 76 years for males and 78 for females.

The deaths are real, and not really unexpected. The perspective is exaggerated. You are being gaslighted by the news media.

This virus is like the flu for most people in the US. Sick 3 days and back to work.

If you are old, it is pretty lethal. If you are obese, no matter what age, you could be in trouble. the problem is the US is old (relatively), fat and diseased. That is our population. The US obesity prevalence was 42.4% in 2017. That's why we are dying. Watch the people they show in the hospitals. They are almost always "otherwise healthy", but they are FAT. Sure, there are scattered reports of actually healthy people of normal weight dying of this, but it is not the typical person dying of it. I can't imagine what would happen if this was really a true disaster. Martial law I guess. It seems you only need a disease that kills 3% of the population (instead of 0.3%) to end society. Take vitamin D in the fall, winter and spring, if you live in the north. It has been shown to be effective in boosting your immune system.
15-24 year-olds are 10x more likely to kill themselves or die in a car accident then die of the coronavirus.
It is serious, but most of us should just be going on with our lives and the hysteria seems overdone. Sweden had the answer. Just live life, if you get it deal with it (possibly die), and then recover and be immune. It would probably kill 2 million in the US, but the rest of us could live our lives. We are just destroying the economy right now, with all these lockdowns, restrictions and mandates. It is just insane. Develop the vaccine, allow anyone who wants it to get it and get one with live and living.....

Hi Moyerderek

I agree. Its the panic that will kill us. I am forced to take the vaccine and am going to take the J&J one shot. That vaccine doesn't have the mrna. You get that one, you are going to have a real problem. Here is a Link This link has the info not on the web per se.
