Ah, Election Day, the day when we plebeians get to cast off our shackles and overthrow our masters — or not.
Every election is important to the larger community, but some elections stand out as being potential game changers. This is one of those.
Having been ignored by the majority of voters in the past two presidential elections, conservatives might be excused for being excited about today. The past two presidential elections were opportunities to prevent America from falling into a death spiral driven by an Islamist-sympathizing, liberty-hating socialist, and his enablers and puppeteers, but they were opportunities foolishly squandered by the electorate.
In this election, the mistake of letting Obama and the Democrats run the show is so glaringly obvious even some of the most brain-numbed of Obama supporters can see it.
Consequently, there’s a chance that America’s best interests might be able to overcome the expected Democrat ballot stuffing and return a Republican Senate, enabling Congress to finally act against a president whose Machiavellian maneuvering makes Nixon look like a piker, a man who acts in all ways but title as a king.
Of course, there are creepy threats and implications from the Left made toward those who don’t support the cause. Some registered Democrats have reported receiving campaign mailers warning them that the party “will know” if they don’t vote. Then there are the IRS, NSA and other alphabet soup agencies that have gotten a well-earned reputation for intimidating conservatives under this president. Attorney General Eric Holder is expected to have is flying monkeys out and about, scoping for signs of racism at the polls.
And don’t overlook “The List.”
It’s been said that in his final days, Nixon kept a list of his enemies. It’s largely been seen as evidence of his paranoia. In Obama’s case, it’s more a matter of overpreening narcissism.
Journalist Sharyl Attkisson, whose book “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington” is coming out, discussed “The List” in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, in which she also discussed her computer being hacked by a government agency:
So an enemies list, like in the Nixon administration?
I’ve been told there is such a list, yes.
And who do you suspect is on that list?
Well, there’s an internal email that indicated reporters who were working with leakers in government agencies or perceived as enemies of the White House are being targeted. So I think that’s probably accurate — anybody that they perceive as harmful to their agenda or working with leakers and whistle-blowers, which I did a lot of.
Do you have sources who told you the names on that list? Is Rush Limbaugh on that list, for example?
Another reporter told me — I can’t remember who — that they thought he was on some sort of target list, but I don’t know that to be the case. I have someone who told me the existence of a list but not the names on it.
In this day and age, making The List is a badge of honor. It means you’re doing your job as an American.
