The Lesser Evil Voting Mantra in America
The Communist-run Progressive Party has taken over the present Democratic Party. For the first time in American history, our country is run by radicals. Not just ordinary emotional, ineffective radicals but Alinsky-trained, focused radicals. We call them progressives.
David Horowitz wrote:
My parents, who were card-carrying Communists, never referred to themselves as Communists but always as “progressives.” The Progressive Party was run by the Communist Party and split off from the Democrats in 1948 (because Harry Truman opposed Stalin), but rejoined the Democrats in the McGovern campaign of 1972 and with the ascension of Barack Obama has become the Democratic Party.
In 1968, the progressives were activated by their extreme disapproval of the US government’s support of the Vietnam War.
The progressives used the Voting Mantra, “A vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil” in their attempts to gain control of the political system.
In 1980, progressives abandoned Jimmy Carter because he “was not good enough for them” and this abandonment helped Ronald Reagan decisively beat Carter.
In 2000, progressives gave some 3 million votes, or 2.7%, to Ralph Nader, United States Green Party candidate, and thereby elected George W. Bush as president. Had Nader’s Green Party votes gone to Gore, Al Gore would have been elected president in 2000.
Progressives finally realized, with a little help from Alinsky, that their Voting Mantra not only failed to achieve their goals but also empowered their enemy.
