2010 Election Series
Gays, God and Guns! Damn! I great title for a country song! I can hear the chanting now! They are there just muffled by the economy and the word….JOBS!
Now that the mid-terms are through, I expect to hear a lot more of the subjects that have been missing, though not completely, from the political discourse……2012 is approaching and these issues will probably make a huge comeback…Obama will be stealing our guns…he will be sinning for pursuing to legitimize homosexuality….and finally he will be coming for your guns…….it will once again be sad to hear this type of mental manipulation…..
For decades the GOP has used gays, God and guns to run their strategy in national and state elections…….and I look for them, if they are at all smart, to avoid these subjects and concentrate on the economy and jobs….these two are winners and the others are big time losers, at least in the country these days…..
I have watched some of the more…..vocal candidates (used a more polite term) show there asses in the waning days of the campaigns….some are reverting back to the “good ol’ days”………
Gays, God and Guns have been the corner stone of the ultra-conservs….but this time around they need to shut the Hell up if the GOP is too win a majority….Why? These social issues will NOT play well with the electorate in this time of economic upheaval.
These issues will NOT go away…..they will just go into hibernation for the 2010 mid term elections….that is if they are smart enough to recognize their potential to scuttle their plans to regain Congress….
Gays, God and Guns will NOT go away……they are just side lined for a future roll out….nothing gets American political blood boiling like a good emotional issue…..and Gays, God and Guns is the best emotional issues they, the conservs, could have in the repertoire……..They will return….if you fear for these things…..never fear they WILL return!
UpDate: In the closing days of the 2010 mid-terms…..they have RETURNED! See nothing to fear…….questions about ones religion or God….referendums trying vigorously to demonize gays and of course the ever present…GUN issues and who will steal them from you….
