The only way Democrats are going to get elected anymore is to hide their true beliefs. From Robert Ringer at lewrockwell.com:
As stupid as they may at times seem, I often wonder if the Dirty Dems will ever become rational enough to realize that the underlying theme of their message — the fundamental transformation of America — will never again get them voted into power. Too many people who were taken in by the hype that gave us Barack Obama now realize that it was a carefully orchestrated scam.
After being lulled into a white-guilt slumber by the exciting idea of electing America’s first “black” president, millions of voters now regretfully understand the wisdom in the idiom “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” They are what the social media crowd refers to as “woke.”
These people may be embarrassed by being taken in by the Marxist hyperbole of a shiftless community organizer, they may even be ashamed by it, but they seem determined not to be fooled again. As a pretty smart fellow once said, you can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.
It’s true that Barack Obama did get reelected in 2012, but that was due to the fecklessness and jelly-fish spine of Mitt Romney. The fact is that even though Obama won again in 2012, he received more than 3 million fewer votes than in 2008. Those 3 million+ missing votes belonged to woke people who realized they had been fooled and would never again be titillated by Styrofoam Greek columns and flashing lights.
Dr. John Drew, who belonged to the same Marxist organization as Barack Obama at Occidental College, is on record as saying that Obama was looking forward to “an imminent social revolution, literally a movement where the working classes would overthrow the ruling class and institute a socialist utopia in the United States.” When others in the group concluded that a stealth approach had a much better chance of succeeding, Drew said that Obama became angry and continued to insist that violent revolution was necessary.
