Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

BUT: GUESS WHAT??



GALLUP's 'traditional' likely voter model shows Obama with a two-point advantage over McCain on Thursday, 49% to 47%, this is within poll's margin of error... Developing...

PLUS:

The Demorats, in the form of ACORN, finally were sufficiently egregious in their actions so as to actually acquire official attention regarding voter fraud.

This election, as I've been stating, is far, far, far from over.

Just MAYBE the FBI will do something about this scandel. It probably won't help the election to much because they won't be ready to give out any news for a long time, way past Nov 4th. Just the news that they are involved will help out though. It MIGHT even shake out some BS from NOBAMA.



OK-------GET THAT BUS UP ON THE LIFT----WE NEED THE EXTRA ROOM!!!

It's only one poll, but let's hope the tide has turned.

After the 2004 election where the polls had Kerry in the lead the entire campaign, I don't trust the polls.
The ACORN thing is so ugly.

AA: you're quite right; they're likely doing what is called a "preliminary investigation," which is the precursor to a full blown concentration. All told, this could take months and nothing would be even remotely decided by election day.

Shop: true but, somehow, this information leaked out despite the DEM/MSM doing its best to CONTAIN it. I'm preparing a post, even at this precise moment in time, that addresses these implications.

Jennifer: hey, welcome aboard, thanks for visiting and thanks for commenting! Both points well noted! That's why I indicate: it ain't over yet!

Everyone knew Acorn was a crooked outfit before 2008. They have gotten in trouble for this prior to 2008 although not to this extent. Surely anyone who gave to their organization in the past two years would have known this.

Anything can happen; it's not like we haven't been behind in the polls before, and written off.

Well BZ, IF Obama gets Colin Powell's endorsement, it is all but over. Our citizens in America (What used to be Great America) are too stupid to realize this is a race power play.

A Powell endorsement might as well come out and say Obama is Black and I am Black so I have to vote for him. So therefore this becomes a race about race not issues. Powell is going to endorse him, because of the poll figures, Obama needs more of a cushion. So a Military Black man like Powell will play his part.

If this endorsement is made, I will become the most Racist McCain supporter there is. I will begin the Vote for McCain because he is WHITE rallying cry. That is essentially what Obama is doing now.

I expect this election to follow the general trend, post-1968. More importantly, an overwhelming full D party win (President and Both Houses) and attempts to 'soak the rich' will backfire like nothing you have seen in your life. Why is that? The trends have demonstrated and odd artifact: when the richest in society have their ability to get a larger share of the wealth there is increasing polarity in society, not lessened. By measures of partisanship in Congress, there is less divisiveness when there is an uneven distribution of wealth... it is something that flies in the face of all Leftist economics, yet points to a basic fact of America: Americans like to know you can succeed beyond your wildest dreams of success.

Things go bad when you stop that, and the longer it goes on the more divisive things get. Not only do I expect a sub-50% turnout, but an absolutely misguided set of laws passed that will starkly divide America by squelching achievement via wealth accumulation.

Americans prefer divided government as it creates *inaction*: it is the only route left to try and stifle 'progressive' government. Yet the way to win is to depress turnout, and that trend is highly disturbing as we head to turnout rates equivalent to the Civil War ones. That will create a Cold Civil War that will not stay in stasis if oppressive government attempts to pass authoritarian edicts. Then we get the hot version... the only chance to 'walk back' the 2008 election is in 2010 in the House and 1/3 of the Senate. And if Obama has stolen a few primaries, then he will be facing an intra-party struggle that will make the fall-out between the SA and the SS look like a minor family feud. Mind you the Progressive and Traditionalist factions in the R party are pretty much headed in that direction, too. The sides are starting to look like the Big City Elites against the countryside... Progressives vs. Traditionalists & Jacksonians.

If you want a last chance at civil society, then 2008 will need a harsh walking back. That means Traditionalists running for RINO seats and against incumbents of all stripes. That requires stepping away from the two parties and actually forming something that will address the majority of voters: those that will not vote. And that will not be any of the existing 'alternative parties' as they all have deep problems in construction, understanding the Constitution and having any idea of what it is they would actually do differently if elected. Single issues will *not* win: it must be a view of government and how policy creates good government. Plans derive from policy, not the other way around. We stopped doing that at the beginning of the 20th century and this is where it has gotten us, today.

I am contrarian on turnout: large turnout no longer helps the D party. In 2000 low turnout was a near divided election, in 2004 a spike in turnout won it for the R party and every past attempt to get the 'youth vote' to turn out has fallen flat. If turnout is hovering at 50%, expect Obama. If it is over 52% expect McCain... high turnout now helps the R party, which is why I have been pushing the culture button with Gov. Palin. That will bring in Traditionalists *and* Jacksonians.

That is the winning combo.

No matter who wins, 2010 and its turnout will be abysmal unless something is done to walk back 2008. The campaign cannot stop at the election. Those not turning out are not 'sheep' or 'disinterested': they are DISGUSTED with the two parties. If that does not change and soon, things go from bad to awful pretty damned fast, and its just about there right now.

The Left always insists America is a racist country still...which I vehemently disagree with.

However, on November 4th, I will become as big an advocate for racism as Obama's been.

Everyone's talking about the "October surprise". I hate to disappoint you all, but there will be no surprise coming in October. Have you yet heard of the:





"NOVEMBER SURPRISE"??

That's when NOBAMA wakes up on the 5th and remembers why he got so damned drunk last night----because he lost by a mile!!
