A question about an observation of the liberal political strategy?

Posted on March 24th, 2011 by admin1 in political campaign strategy

It seems like the Dems. have been focusing their campaigns on small groups of people – global warming, african americans, homosexuals. I hear them talk about righting the wrongs of society if elected.
It seems like the Dem. Presidential candidates are following this strategy as well.
My question – do you think it will work? or do you think it will cause the Dem. party to self destruct? How can one Dem. candidate please everyone when they’re all focusing on different minority groups of people?
Thanks in advance for your THOUGHTFUL and SERIOUS answers only :)
You may say American is made up of small groups of people, but I counter by saying that NO small group defines who I am as a person. You can’t define me simply by my age, my gender, my race, my religion, etc.
NONE of those things makes me who I am, and they shouldn’t define you either.

It could work, because the liberal news media have a way of creating a perception that EVERYONE cares about issues the libs address. Somehow, they make their viewers/listeners/readers think that since EVERYONE cares about these issues, you should too.

Look at global warming as an example. Somehow, the idea has been planted in people’s heads that the only people out there who thinks it’s a hoax are few and far between, and that it’s the single thing that will destroy us unless we do something about it NOW. (Nothing could be further from the truth, but the news can be thanked for helping facilitate the myth.)

Dems try to get elected, at least to my way of thinking, by creating fear, then jumping up and declaring that they, and only they have the solution and by not electing them to solve it, you have contributed to the destruction of the Earth.

When I graduated from high school in 1987, AIDS was the single thing that was going to end human existence. Liberal politicians and the news media told us you could get it from drinking out of the same Sprite can as an AIDS infected person, or breathing the same air as them. As more was found out about it, the panic lessened because it was proven not to be so easily transmitted and now you never hear about it.

See how they control public opinion by making people think everyone else cares about it so you should too?

    They are focusing on special interest groups as they always have done. What are they doing for the American Public as a whole.References :

    Don’t forget bashing republicans thats their new favorite strategy since they don’t have real answers. O ya and saying stuff like o im going to provide better healthcare but they never say how they are going to do it.References :

    The Democrats are multi-taskers. Just like Clinton. Why do cons think they can only do one thing at a time. Oh, I forgot, you elected Bush.References :

  4. liberal truthiness

    They are catering to those who are more likely to NEED them.

    Any self-sufficient America should NOT be voting for a Democrat. No matter what color or sexual preference.References :

    And this is in contrast to the Republican party which makes no secret whatsoever that they only serve Big Business interests?

    Sorry, I don’t understand your question.

    America is MADE UP of "small groups of people."
    ********************************
    EDIT: Your question wasn’t about "defining you" your question seemed to denegrate Democrats for listening to the voices of the little people as opposed to the Republicans who represents the Big Business interests.

    Our politicians ARE supposed to listen to homosexuals, environmentalists, African Americans…..it’s who makes up the country.References :

    Well, since I think your question is based on a false premise (probably because you’re a republican who needs some talking points)…

    I’d have to say you’re not paying attention, and are watching too much Fox Noise.References :

    I think it will work…after the last six years of helping Iraqis and never ending war, the country is ready to invest in America and Americans again.References :

    This is the very essence of America…Small groups comprise larger groups that form societies and thus civilization. To at least acknowledge and address the problems and situations of various minorities one addresses the problems of all for the reflection of one is seen in the response of the masses. It’s the needs and welfare of the average American that conjure the image of our Democracy. The citizen shouldn’t serve the government but the government should serve the citizen. This is why politicians might ,(in reality), still think of themselves as public servants instead of egotistical tyrants.References :

    the democrats used to have the people concerned with civil liberties. then they voted on sunday to flush them down the toilet.

    anyone who is a 1-issue-voter over abortion will vote dem.
    anyone who thinks affirmative action is a good idea? dem.
    as you mentioned, global warming, etc.

    in favor for the dems is that a lot of the people who feel strongly about one issue either don’t care about others or feel the same way about them.

    that is, the eco-friendly people don’t care about affirmative action, or they strongly support it. even if you didn’t like it, the republicans are so NOT "green" (the new fad term) that you’d be willing to sacrifice.

    so the dems shouldn’t have much of a problem. nearly everyone feels strongly about something, it’s just a question of how strong.References :

    Good point, if the 2006 elections are any indication these ‘promises’ are a pack of lies to continue instituting a tax and spend government like they always do. They are so spread out across issues and in disagreement for solutions that they cannot possibly create a working solution for all the problems they intend to fix.References :

    The democrat party is a coalition of different groups, all of which have been given victim status by the party. This strategy is very effective in theory but causes great harm when practiced. Think this through, if we are to right all of societies wrongs that would mean that all of us would have be lowered to the status of the least among us. In the long run the fact that this is contrary to human nature means this is doomed to fail (think USSR, Cuba) BTW the global warming issue is just a ruze to take away your private property rights, assign power to unelected governmental bodies, and raise taxes. Anyone who thinks that mankind can controll the Earth’s climate is an idiot or a liarReferences :
