There are all sorts of election analysis occurring now, and much more will occur over the next few days about why the Democratic dominance of government is coming to an end. But despite all the excuses, the reasons for it are actually quite straight forward. There are in fact three main reasons the Democrats are going to lose tomorrow and those reasons correlate directly with three lies of the current administration. They are as follows:
1. They claimed the stimulus bill would keep unemployment from going to 8% – it then went as high as 10% and is now stagnating at 9.5%
2. They claimed that the stimulus would produce ‘shovel ready jobs’, only to have the President later admit to the NYTs that, “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects.”
3. They claimed that we would be able to keep our health insurance if we liked it – now thousands of people are losing the benefits provided by their companies.
These failed and fallacious claims should alone be enough to oust the Democrats from office – but when you add to that a housing market that continues to decline, a soft stock market, increasing dependence on China, the car industry take over and the failure to motivate either Iran or N. Korea to give up their nuclear ambitions, then there is no reason any Democrat should remain in office come this time Wednesday. Of course, the electorate is rarely that decisive – but they will send a message tomorrow and the Democrats will lose – and it will be up to the Republicans to follow through or face the same fate in two years.
The Secular Left will remain clueless about this election still believing it to be about gays getting married, creationism, and global warming. While I expect most Democrats to wake up on Wednesday, I suspect the hard Left will never get a clue about what is happening.
Of course, they didn’t have a clue what it was all about to begin with.
