And the truth is finally coming into the light • The silver lining of Obama’s presidency is that the con is finally being exposed. The Democrats’ real objective is to expand the government, get as many people on the payroll as possible, get as many people on its entitlement programs as possible (including illegal immigrants by executive action) and wah-lah, you continue to grow the political base of the party exponentially. Thankfully millions have seen through the con which is why we now have an all-Republican Congress.
For years Democrats have perfected the art of projecting their hidden agendas and objectives onto Republicans as being the party big business, the rich and and by extension the selfish. It is truly an amazing thing to see when you strip away the veneer of their pretense and success of pulling off a kind of moral inversion trick where you have created an identity and image for yourself (the Democrat party) as the altruistic and compassionate ones while successfully painting your ideological opponents (the Republican party) as the greedy, evil, corrupt, selfish and uncaring ones.
The template was first created back in the days of Tammany Hall where the Democratic political machine in New York City provided the patronage to thousands of immigrants the jobs they needed thereby insuring their loyalty and in turn their votes. It’s easy to make the case that this was Lyndon Johnson’s objective with his Great Society program that created the welfare state and has grown into the monstrosity that it is today.
Entitlement has become just another form of patronage that insures the loyalty (and then the votes) of the beneficiaries of governmental programs. So when the welfare state secured the entire black vote for decades, Democrats continue to use the template and precedents created by Tammany Hall and the Great Society in the same manner. Obama has virtually ignored his black constituents his entire presidency on economic matters because he knows their loyalty is forever secure. His goal now is to secure the loyalty of the Hispanic vote for generations to come just as LBJ did with the blacks. Thankfully the truth is a hard thing to hide.
For the millions of Democrats that vote from their heart and out of compassion because they believe this is what the party stands for have been taken for a ride and played liked a fiddle. And for the tens of millions of others either on the government payroll and or on government handouts, they know who their master is and aren’t going to bite the hand that feeds them. Their loyalty and their vote for the ‘Party of Big Government’ is secure. The only problem now it that you can’t keep the truth hidden forever. It will always eventually find its way into the sunshine. The con is up.
