Get the Democrats Vote! – January 12, 2008
Get that Democrat’s vote! We hear it every election year. The Democrats, of course, are trying to win the votes of other Democrats. But they never speak of winning the votes of Republicans. It’s very different for Republicans. The news media, the pollsters, the candidates themselves, all talk of moving to the center to persuade Democrats to vote for the Republican candidate. Why is that?
Republicans are expected to move to the center to be more appealing to Democrats, while Democrats are moving farther and farther to the left. Why is pressure put on the Republicans to compromise their priniciples to appeal to the other party? Why is there no pressure or expectation for the Democrats to move to the center to appeal to Republican voters?
It’s not going to happen. And why should it? There are two schools of thought. Allow Republicans to hold their opinions and not give them up for the other side. If Republicans do move toward Democrat views, then we only have one party – Democrat. We need candidates who will stand up for their constituents and not cave in. Let the other side cave in this election year!
