If politics was war then the enemy forces in Virginia have just proven themselves to be much smarter than some people had thought. Actually, politics is war. Everyone of us is either an enemy combatant on one side or the other or a conscientious objector waiting to become collateral damage. Politics is a constant battle to take control over nations, loot the treasuries, plunder its resources and enslave its people. And we are losing the battle in America because the enemy has infiltrated the leadership of our once loyal forces and created ghost armies to distract and confuse the voters. One cannot begin to take over a nation by simply replacing the leaders at the top, one needs to empower a base to support them. Some of those bases still try to operate on moral principles while others are practicing outright guerrilla warfare. How did we evolve into such machine politics that routinely turns out legions of dead voters and fraudulently inflated voter registrations and tactical diversions? Worst of all are the numbers of naive good people who refuse to acknowledge that this is happening around them while still trying to recall the good old days when everyone played fair.
In the old days, when politics was a gentleman's sport, we had the Establishment Democrats versus the Establishment Republicans. They had civilized rules of engagement such as resting on the Sabbath to gathering within the gilded paneled walls of their clubs to drink brandy and smoke Cuban cigars and boast of their accomplishments. The major participants all learned how to become wealthy, or wealthier, from the influence that politics provided them. Then came the Russian Revolution, funded by one of the wealthiest of insiders, Armand Hammer, and the Communists came into power. Politics was never the same. Politics became ruthless, treacherous and deadly. It was no longer a gentleman's sport, it was now all about regime changes, cloak and dagger operations and mass murders.
In the old days, when life was simple we paid little attention to the changes that happened within our education system. In the days when McGuffey's Eclectic Readers were the standard and students had little need for a college education after graduating from high school, liberals and left-wing sympathizers knew full well how to instill a pro-Communist, Marxist/Socialist mentality with the halls of higher education. Thus were born the first armies of professionals that would infect our universities with their poison, the tenured professors of academia. The subsequent armies were the graduates in political science, government operations and journalism.
Then, of course, there was Saul Alinsky, a community organizer and author of Rules For Radicals who set the stage for transforming politics into outright warfare with a Field Manual for operations.
In Virginia, the governor's race was essentially a two man race between Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II, a tea party favorite and Terry McAuliffe, a corrupt liberal Democrat with a past history of running profitable scams but who was also a powerful fundraiser and past National Chairman of the Democratic Party and a personal friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton. But there was also a spoiler entered in the race, Robert Sarvis, a Libertarian candidate running on a third-party line. During the course of the campaign Sarvis kept maintaining around 7-9 percent in the polls while the Republican Ken Cuccinelli II battled his way up from double digit deficits to a virtual dead heat with the Democrat.
While I long suspected that the Democrats would be helping to finance the Libertarian candidates campaign in order to draw votes away from the Republican, the details of just such a plot only came to light on Election Day. On The Blaze web site, it was revealed that Robert Sarvis owed his entire presence in the race to a wealthy Democrat who had helped finance the petition signature drive to get him on the ballot and had also paid for some printed campaign signs and bumper stickers.
In times past when we had a better grip on our nation's future and when things were far less critical than they are today I would have agreed with the thoughts about voting for who you think is best. That situation did not exist in Virginia yesterday. Long before the Libertarian Party there was the NY State Conservative Party who broke away from the liberal dominated Republican Party and they have only managed to elect two candidates to Congress in the last 50 years. If you think America has another 50 years left to play with the Libertarian Party then you've been smoking too much pot. Others have already pointed out that some of the things Sarvis said were not fitting in with the Libertarian ideal. The point here is about the useful idiots who voted for the Libertarian candidate that helped the anti-gun Democrat win the election. Go over to The Blaze web site and read the proof about the wealthy Democrat who made large contributions to Robert Sarvis' campaign. The Democrats not only gathered the petition signatures to get him on the ballot, but boosted his campaign with the intention of draining votes from the pro-gun Republican. In critical elections like this one there should never have been a third-party candidate because they always split the conservative vote and swing close elections to the Democrats. Complicating the matter was the fact that Republican Ken Cuccinelli III was a staunch conservative favorite of the Tea Party and the Establishment Republicans, who have waged war on the right-wing Tea Party followers for the last few years, withheld their support.
Nov. 5, 2013 8:43amA major Democratic Party benefactor and Obama campaign bundler helped pay for professional petition circulators responsible for getting Virginia Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Robert C. Sarvis on the ballot — a move that could split conservative votes in a tight race.Campaign finance records show the Libertarian Booster PAC has made the largest independent contribution to Sarvis’ campaign, helping to pay for professional petition circulators who collected signatures necessary to get Sarvis’ name on Tuesday’s statewide ballot.Austin, Texas, software billionaire Joe Liemandt is the Libertarian Booster PAC’s major benefactor. He’s also a top bundler for President Barack Obama. This revelation comes as Virginia voters head to the polls Tuesday in an election where some observers say the third-party gubernatorial candidate could be a spoiler for Republican Ken Cuccinelli.
As expected, the virulent anti-gun Democrat won the election but with the results much narrower than expected and the difference being the Libertarian spoiled the chances for the Republican. Without the spoiler Libertarian the Republican would have been elected. The Democrats also knew this and that is why the gave so much financial aid to the Libertarian Party.
