Post-election wrap-up

Twas the midterm elections, which shaped up to be a good night for conservatives. What is the moral of this story?

My take is the diversity of opinion in conservative precincts. Over the last several years we have seen the Democrat opinion in lockstep with the liberal wings of the party. Their message was hammered home without deviation from all talking heads. The talking points were adhered to with the rigidity of a corpse. No deviation whatsoever. In comparison, the GOP and conservative message appeared dysfunctional, incoherent, so at odds with reality that no one could understand it. Although, underlying that dysfunction was a coherent unapologetic call for change that would reawaken the traits that made America great!

That was the folly of the Democratic ticket. They believed that their message was so rigidly clear that they would win the elections. However, they failed to realize that the blazing singularity of their message was wholeheartedly wrong! Down the final stretch, that realization became reality and the voters turned in their ballots in repudiation of that singular liberal message.

Predictions for the 2016 race, or better yet campaign strategy, would be to emphasize the singularly wrong message that the Democratic candidates cannot deviate from. Despite the liberal desire to be diverse in opinion and message, they rigidly adhere to the centralization of a controlling message and cannot tolerate anything else. On the other hand, the GOP message is diverse. It defines a diversity in message encompassed by the state by state constituencies, ideologies, and desire to be exceptional that harkens back to, and respects our, founding principles.

As the 2016 election season kicks off, I think the past six years and the 2014 midterm elections have proven that the liberal political machine cannot tolerate a diversity of opinion. It can only promote a singular negative narrative of the differing conservative opinion, as a means to maintain floundering power and controlling the fears of their weakest base members. The moderate, conservative, constitutional, and libertarian wings in the GOP should consolidate their similarities and exploit their diversity in order to promote the message that we only prosper when we all prosper in order to surge ahead in 2016.

That’s where I stand. If I haven’t offended you, then I haven’t tried hard enough.
