Divemedic notes the cascade of negative feedback from the American public for the Democratic Party’s current actions and obsessions, then asks:
So with all of that going on, why are the Democrats continuing down what is obviously a self destructive path? Why do they continue making decisions that are obviously unpopular with the voters?
I can only come up with one logical answer: The polls don’t matter. Their popularity doesn’t matter.
They know that they can’t lose. The fix is in. There is no other explanation that fits the facts.
There’s more at the link.
I can’t help but agree with him, as we’ve already discussed in these pages on several occasions. I think the Democratic Party believes it has “arranged” or “fixed” the election results already, and can therefore disregard voter sentiment. Recent polling snafus, hiccups and glitches in primary elections around the country tends to confirm that suspicion.
Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean we should shrug our shoulders and say, “Well, there’s nothing we can do about it.” Of course there are things we can do about it! No matter how “blue” our electoral district may be, there’s still a need for volunteer workers, poll observers, and a host of other low-level tasks that will allow us to monitor what’s going on and document it for later use if needed – either in the news media, or in court. The lack of such evidence is one reason why the Democratic Party was able to steal the 2020 elections so blatantly. They argued in court that there was no solid, verifiable, measurable evidence to support allegations of electoral fraud, and that therefore the charges and complaints should be dismissed without being brought to trial. In many cases they were right, and they got away with it, because nobody had thought to collect such evidence until it was too late. Let’s change that, starting now.
Let’s also hold our local electoral authorities to account. For example, if I lived in Maricopa, Arizona, after the fiasco of delayed and “glitchy” balloting there last week, I’d be demanding the resignation of anyone and everyone involved. I’d be writing to my State representatives and senators, and to the Governor, demanding an immediate, in-depth investigation of the problems thus revealed, and insisting that they be rectified before November’s election. I’d be writing to the news media demanding that they put pressure on local and state politicians to that effect. This isn’t partisan politics – it’s demanding simple, fundamental efficiency and effectiveness in the administration of elections. Surely that’s a cause that anyone, left- or right-wing, can get behind?
Let’s not give up. Rather, let’s mobilize and get organized. The fix may be in, but there’s always the chance that glitches may work in the opposite direction to that intended. As Robert Heinlein’s chief protagonist Lazarus Long put it, “Certainly the game is rigged. Don’t let that stop you; if you don’t bet, you can’t win.”
