Why the Left Will Continue to Lose

The period of self-introspection has begun for the Democrats. A number of plausible theories have been argued as to why they soundly defeated, but none of these have come from the lips of Democratic leaders or the glitterati that support them.

My favorite comment has been how the Democrats need to "get religion." This amounts to letting people know that they go to church and care about families. Once they hold their nose and do this, then they will win all of those votes back. Nevermind that Christian voters are smart enough to figure out that you can talk about faith and religion all you want, but if you assault the very things you claim to cherish, you will be a hypocrite and no more. Ironically, John Kerry talked about how faith without works was dead. He claimed that the proposition life begins at conception was an article of faith. For some reason, his faith motivated him on other issues, but his faith led to no works on the abortion question. Democrats cannot really believe that all it will take is to pay some lip service to religious themes and all of a sudden they will be able to make inroads into the "values voter" populace. Or do they?

Furthermore, their ignorance of religion will handicap them. It is as though they believe that the totality of religious or moral arguments, or arguments made by known religious believers, are simply random quotations from Scripture (which everybody knows are totally contradictory) and then simply yelling them loud enough and intimidating people with them. For the substance of this argument, see Nicholas Kristof's article in yesterday's NY Times. Democrats just need to fill their rhetorical suitcase with some Scripture quotations and problem solved! The ignorance and the arrogance are astounding. The Left can talk about faith and family all it wants, but if it nominates judges who feel it is their role to be social engineers and at the same time limiting the expressive outlets for people of faith, and subsumes the responsibilities of families, churches and local communities into the federal government, then it will continue to lose because people of faith are not as dumb as they think.

Maureen Dowd's column in today's NY Times is the perfect example as to why this current breed of Democrat will utterly fail win the hearts and minds of the average American voter. It is because they really hate the average American voter. It is amazing that someone who claims to represent the ideals of "civilization" can't stand to live with someone who may think differently from her, or may have valid reasons besides bigotry and other deep-seated pscyhological issues for thinking or voting the way they do. People are so funny when they kick and scream hysterially like little children. Savor this one.
