Yesterday, it was the death of democracy….today, could it be the start of the death of democrats?
Make no mistake, the death of democrats will be a slow affair….and they will fight with every tool in their arsenal but unless they change the way they have controlled the power base for the last 50 years, their decline as a political force is assured.
Tuesday’s Wisconsin recall election is the first greatly visible sign of the decline of democrat power.
Why do I say this?
Specifically public service unions.
Democrat politicians have relied on union support to fund their campaigns for decades. The unions get repaid by the elected democrats who provide salary and benefits to local, state and federal employees. These employess have union fees deducted from their salaries whether they are members of the union or not…and the union repays the democrat politician by supporting him/her at the next election.
And the cycle continues. The song remains the same.
But now, something has happened to upend this cozy relationship.
People are fleeing unions in droves.
Union membership is declining…and that means that union fees are declining…and unions have less money to support their local politicians.
Democrats will be forced to raise funds from the electorate…and will need to manage their message in a way that appeals to the folks in their electorate. They can no longer rely on the unions for their campaigns.
As was seen in Wisconsin, it is unlikely that the liberal message will encourage ordinary folks to dig into their pockets and financially support their democrat candidate. After all, being a democrat is all about what you can get, not what you can give.
With fewer elected democrats the cycle changes. Fewer perks for the union workers, fewer fees for the unions and smaller support for democrat politicians.
Have we reached the tipping point where the cycle has changed sufficiently to ultimately stop democrats?
Only a fool would think that…but the cycle has certainly been damaged. Sufficiently so that the democrats will be forced to rethink how they will win elections in the future.
If they fail to adapt, fail to change their view of the world…fail to adopt the standard set by John F Kennedy when he said “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”…then the democrat politician will go the way of the dinosaur.
And what happens then?
If we have an administration similar to what we have now, I foresee that the Constitution will be shredded, and a bold faced attempt to secure power will be certain. The circumstances leading to that event can be manufactured or real…but with the death of democracy, the loss of power of the Unions, and the inability of democrats to sell their nonsense to the ordinary people of America….the only chance for democrats is the tyranny of the administration.
Do not be fooled…this is their end game.
The death of the democrat will surely bring about tyranny if we allow a second Obama term.
Do not allow that.
