Why Liberals Fail!
why George Bush was elected(twice now) and people who sound somewhat
intelligent and have better ideas didn't? Of course, we're not
counting the voting irregularities in both Florida and Ohio. Well
this is the answer...in a nutshell!
reason liberals don't get elected can be understood if you just
acknowledge the fact that I'm writing an editorial on why liberals
fail. Liberals tend to explain and complicate ideas in a way that
no other group can. They need to go into details, outline histories,
have a vocabulary with words found only on the SAT's and make
sure that all bases have been covered so that you have a good
grasp of the situation from all perspectives.
ever noticed that our TV commercials are written at a level for
the average 3rd-grader? Have you ever wondered why?(uh oh...here
we go again!). Have you noticed the crap that people watch on
TV? Face it, we have a society that operates most efficiently
on the 3rd grade level, but the liberals want to operate on the
post-doctorate level. Slight communication gap?
to understand issues myself, but have to admit that in a lot of
the Liberal magazines and web sites, my eyes go a little glazy
after about 10 minutes(and I recognize how silly commercials are-
imagine a post-doctorate explanation being read by the person
who thinks the commercials are clever!).
the Republicans... they take simple issues(or simplify very complex
issues), frame them in black and white and then hammer them into
our brains until we are forced to succumb(or else we'll have to
listen to them hammering them into our little heads until Armadgedon-which
may be sooner than we think!). They take the issues of Gay Rights,
The Pledge, Stem Cell Research, Iraq, North Korea, Iran, Terrorism,
etc...- and then turn them into a Good/Bad, Us/Them framework.
Simple, but ingenius! I mean, I'm not Korean, or Iraqi or a Terrorist,
so I don't even have to think about where I stand on the issue,
it's on the side of good!"
words, the Republicans have drawn lines that every red-blooked
American(with a 3rd Grade education) can understand. North Korea,
Iraq and Iran are the "Axis of Evil"(ok- Axis is a little
advanced for 3rd-Graders so he probably should have said "Axle
of Evil" or "Line of Evil"). Without having to
discuss politics, history or anything else, we know where we stand....since
we're not evil!
other hand, those on the left would need ten pages explaining
the politics, history and effects of different options and then
go on to repeat themselves in three slightly different ways to
make sure that everyone has it! Who's got time(and the ability)to
read ten pages? I sure don't and I doubt that our 3rd grade voters
the liberals(I use Democrat and liberal interchangably although
Joe Lieberman, the North's answer to Zell Miller, is proof that
is inaccurate) have any hope of connecting with the general electorate,
they're going to have to simplify and start imagining themselves
as 3rd grade teachers addressing the classes.
made myself clear, Children? Now, be good liberals, go home do
your homework and come back tomorrow and we can try again after
