I used to get on the air and rail against the false patriotism that the Republican Party used to hide its real agenda and fool the rubes who allow themselves to be conned by its lies. After watching the Democratic convention and its constant stream of faux patriotism, I now know that we have a new set of rubes and new con artists in our country. The Democrats have finally realized that it is very easy for demagogues to hide bad intentions behind the flag. They now realize that they can get away with any manner of bad behavior as long as there are a few convenient American flags waving in the background. We have got to gin up some new political parties quickly because except for the Green Party, which needs to grow its grassroots operations if it want to be viable, we don't have a party that represents us!
For some time now, I have been saying that I feel that the GOP has had their 2016 Presidential campaign strategy in place for years based on Hillary Clinton being the Democratic Party's chosen candidate. After watching the first GOP debate a couple of nights ago, it became apparent that my prediction was right on target. FOX News selected the top ten candidates based on national polls and put them in the 9 PM prime time debate slot. They invited the remainder of the GOP hopefuls to participate in a 5 PM debate.
Both debates sounded like the usual GOP circus with its requisite idiotic red meat talking points being said. Except for two notable participants, Donald Trump in the 9 PM debate session and Carly Fiorina in the 5 PM not ready for prime time session, they were quite uneventful. Donald Trump was the political version of a shock jock, raising eyebrows with his remarks in and out of the debate. Carly Fiorina, despite her toxic agenda, came off as being the only adult in either of the two debates. I predict that she will wind up being the GOP's standard bearer in the 2016 Presidential election.
Should Carly Fiorina become the GOP's hope for winning the Presidential campaign and should Hillary win the Democratic Presidential primary, I feel that we would have the precise scenario that the GOP has planned for all along, a woman vs. woman election. Voters who have wanted to elect a woman President for years, but are too red state to even think of voting for Hillary could elect someone that they consider to be a safe choice conservative woman and pat themselves on the back for voting in the first woman president.
If that scenario frightens you, consider the following alternate scenario.
Upsetting both party hacks and Hillary loyalists, Bernie Sanders does surprisingly well and wins the Democratic primaries. Expecting a Hillary win and it being too late to change their strategy, the Bernie win catches the GOP off-guard as Carly Fiorina wins the Republican primaries. After the conventions, Carly Fiorina attempts to remind voters that she would be the first woman president but that isn't enough to overcome Bernie Sanders' populist appeal. Bernie Sanders wins by a landslide!
Anyway folks, that's my theory and I'm sticking to it.
Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
