Conservatives Must Not
Seek All Low-Info Voters

American Thinker, by Lloyd Marcus

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/26/2012 9:05:20 AM

It sticks in my craw that conservatives/Republicans are leaning toward, in essence, becoming immoral, stupid, and un-American to win low information voters. Folks, I cannot do that. Meet Semi. I have more respect for Semi, a stray cat which my wife befriended, than I do for the low-life parasites who voted for Obama because he promised to give them stuff via funds confiscated from others. Semi has the good sense to value her freedom. A neighbor caught Semi and got her inoculated and spayed. But for some reason, Semi prefers frequenting our yard.

We need to turn a percentage of low info voters into mo info voters. You know, flip 2-3% of them. We cannot try to appeal to them as they are, we must eductate a small number of them. Once we do, they´ll never go back.

Low information is part but not all of the problem in the electorate. Wrong information is also part - but the biggest part seems to be in values and expectations. Throughout history, all the way back to the ancient Greeks who invented democracy, this has been the way of things. Democracies degenerate, anarchy results, and tyranny arises to restore order. There is no reason to think America will be any different. The only thing that might arrest and reverse the decline is a major national catastrophe, which would bring with it the possibility of restoring a sense of reality to the huddled, hedonic masses. Given the effeteness and ideological fantasy life of our ruling liberal establishment, this is not unlikely. People like Obama -there are lots of them; they infest our universities and reign over the media and pop culture- dwell in a fantasy bubble and reject reality when it doesn´t suit their tastes. This can go on for a while, thanks to the accumulated moral, material and military capital of the past. It cannot go on forever. Reality always has the last word.

He is so right. Glad to see this in Must Reads.

Have you ever read "unhypenated black" Conservative Lloyd Marcus´s bio? Quite a story and worth the time:

Mr. Marcus is a delight; not angry, straightforward and completely honest. He does not beat around the bush. Those who are hell bent, and I emphasize the hell bent, on demonizing anyone who has too much, because envy and covetedness drives them ,are who disgust Mr. Marcus. We are tired of the pc crowd and their euphemisms. Say it and let the truth be heard because most of us are disgusted by the Obama rationale and it is time to shout it out and let the race baiters have the hissy fit they always have, anyway.

Low-information voter definition:

Self-seeking, intellectually lazy, purposefully ignorant, government-dependent individual who votes Democratic every time ... in other words, a moron.

A very hard hitting but truthful article. I always enjoy reading Mr. Marcus´ articles. He has a way of getting right to the truth and doesn´t pull any punches. And he is capable of giving as well as taking.

But, the solid truth is that as a nation, we are headed down the path toward tyranny. And with Obozo at the head, it won´t take us much longer to be there. After all, we are nearly there now. And when we reach that point is when I forecast another armed revolution. And guess who owns the largest percentage of weapons? Frankly, I can´t wait for it to happen now. I´ll be one of the first to join up.

Bitteer, angry, and a bit vicious- that´s how I see the article. We can not change human nature and the Democrats have capitalized majestically on it while we conservatives have fretted and whined (IMHO!). The easy road has always been a politician´s dream path to the golden ring. It is why corruptions and con-artistry thrives, even to this day. People are not stupid. But, they are greedy and selfish by nature- isn´t that the whole reason for instruction from the Bible? To damp down our human tendencies toward the base side of life and encourage us to rise above that to achieve the greater planes of being human? People who voted for Øbama certainly are voting their base instinct level. And that is the place every Tyrant goes first, promising the fantasy of Utopia and vengeance against those who may or may not have gained on their misery. Tax the rich, kill the middle class- it´s been a popular theme since the French Revolution. Hitler played it well from the miserable post WWI German audience- It´s a disaster that always awaits in the darker side of humankind- and then we learn from the resulting lakes of blood and try to do better next time- at least, until there is a next time of would-be tyrants- like Democrat enabled Øbama!

The GOP may be dead from leaning too far left, but even that is moot in light of the vote fraud seen in November. I have no doubt it was outright theft and that we had enough honest votes to easily win.

The indifference to this fraud among our own pundits - as they count angels on a pin head - is the true indication of a rotting republic.

In our charter, every single vote cast represents human sovereignty. To not be outraged at the wholesale theft of that most precious of civic rights is to be part of that rot.

Lend your time, money or energy to True-The-Vote. It is bi-partisan and IS the tip of the spear in this fight.

Great read. He tells it like it is. And the author is not bitter as someone suggested. Rather, he is astonished, disappointed, worried and disgusted that a majority of Americans (a slim one but a majority just the same) could re-elect a president as destructive and polarizing as Zero. A president that has taken this country and now with unfettered power pretty much, will continue to take this country down a very bad path. As someone said our country might be able to survive Obama, but the country will never survive the voters that elected and then re-elected this disaster.

Ha, adorable kitty. I´ve done the same thing for several strays (gotten them spayed or neutered and vaccinated) on my own dime.

As with Marcus´s wife, I tried to coax them into becoming indoor cats. Sometimes you can do that, especially if the kitten is very young; but if they´ve gotten a taste of the independent life, it´s hard to keep them inside if you don´t want to have wailing banshees clawing at your curtains and attempting to throw themselves through your glass windows.

I´m not sure little "Semi" is a good example of the opposite of the low-information voter. But I did enjoy the story.

MSNBC will label "Low-Info Voters" as racist. Although a large portion of these voters are black, it´s not racist. It´s descriptive.

This morning I was contemplating the movie "Back to the Future II". In it the time travelers go back in time to the point that time began to veer away from its correct course. It was decided that it was when the villain Biff received a copy of a sports almanac from his future self. He used the book to bet on sports events that brought him great wealth, power and influence. As a result, his world barely resembled the world that should have been. Greed, pornography, drugs and violence were rampant.

I asked myself that if I had this power, which event would I try to go back and correct. Which event allowed a future fraud like Obama to eventually be elected? I´m sure we all have an idea. Mine was the end of WWII and the beginning of the Cold War. We allowed Communists to enter the country as refugees. Some plotted to undermine our way of life from inside. They struck gold when they went for the youth through a new phenomenon... Rock and Roll. It worked.

This rant is completely off target. Low information does not equate to greedy or stupid, it means what it says. And what it says is that Republicans need better messaging, better ways to say what they want to say. That is all.

The Semi metaphor is a good one. A "big tent" political party is akin to herding stray cats, indeed.

Better to decide which constituents to bring into the tent, educate and motivate them to elect your candidates, and then represent their interests well. That cannot be done if your constituents have conflicts of interests. Thus the inherent problem with the "big tent" concept.

The interests of middle-class conservatives conflict with those of low-info welfare class voters and with those of Wall Street investors and global corporatists alike.

That is why they need their own tent.

#18 Agree. Republicans need to focus on a number of votes (for instance 80 million) it will take for them to win decisively and then execute a plan to get those votes. This should be started right now by implementing a framework and a blue print for all fifty states.

Marcus says it the the way it should be expressed. Enough of this GOP "reach out" BS. The trouble with "reaching out" to parasites is that you are expected to have a wad of other people´s money in your hand. We´ll never beat the Democrats at that game.

One of the things that attracted me to conservatism was its willingness to challenge liberal orthodoxies. Permit me to challenge another. I once inherited a small grey kitten. At the time, I was told that he would become unmanageable and violent if left uncastrated. I decided to wait and see. As I write this ten years later, my unaltered companion perches on my stomach. He is the gentlest cat I have ever known, and the only one who has never--not even once--struck at a human being with his claws. The other reasons to castrate domestic cats do not apply to him. It works for us.

- As promised on Monday, the Justice Department today released its new criteria for inmates who want their prison sentences reduced. Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole announced six "stringent standards" the department will consider when reviewing and expediting clemency applications from federal inmates. He also replaced the Bush administration appointee who heads DOJ´s Pardons office. Under the new initiative, DOJ will prioritize clemency applications from inmates who meet all of the following requirements:-- They are currently serving time in a federal prison and likely would have received a substantially lower sentence if convicted of the same offense(s) today;

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- A Fort Carson commander who wasn´t allowed to leave for Afghanistan with his troops last month was suspended over allegations that he was insensitive to victims of sexual assault and discrimination, a newspaper reported Tuesday. The details were reported in The Gazette (http://bit.ly/1k3YHKd) based on a 361-page investigative report it obtained under the Federal Freedom of Information Act. It provided the first account the Army has released about the suspension of Col. Brian Pearl and offers a view into how sensitive the issue of sexual assault has become for the Army.

Construction workers at companies doing work for the federal government are paid as much as three times what their peers outside of government get for the same work, a Washington Examiner review of federal statistics found. Pipefitters in Laredo, Texas, for example, can usually expect to make around $11.47 hourly, but if working on a federal contract, they must be paid at least $36.49, plus benefits. Window installers in New York City make $18.87 an hour in the market -- that´s the median salary, including industry veterans -- yet the government requires those doing that work for it in the

TOKYO — President Obama stepped off Air Force One in Japan apparently with an appetite for sushi. After a quick refresh at the Hotel Okura near the U.S. Embassy, Obama joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for dinner at a tiny sushi shop in the city’s Ginza neighborhood. They were joined by U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, the White House said. The restaurant — Sukiyabashi Jiro — has earned a rare three-star Michelin rating. Its owner and master chef, 89-year-old Jiro Ono, was featured in the 2011 documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.” Many regard

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it?

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
