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.

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.

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.

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.

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration?

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census. Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) of then White House Chief of Staff Rham Emanuel. “Requiring the Census director to report directly to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a

Just in time for tax deadline day, a new Gallup poll finds that a majority of Americans -- 52 percent -- say they pay too much federal income tax, while 42 percent say they amount they pay is "about right." Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago. While a slim majority of Americans say their federal tax burden is too high, roughly the

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
