Democrats Use Independent Voters As Political Pawns

Voter fraud92417 300x242 Democrats Use Independent Voters As Political Pawns

One recent poll showed more voters now identify themselves as Independent than at any time in the past 75 years. Given their shameless pandering to Hispanics and other demographics they see rapidly increase, don’t expect the Democrats to overlook the potential impact of voters not affiliated with any party.

Independents are characteristically less informed and involved when it comes to politics (otherwise, they’d vote solidly conservative), so the left is able to repeat catchphrases in an attempt to sway the uncommitted center.

“The Republicans are waging a war on women,” they shout, knowing the unfounded accusation is actually all it takes to convince some who are not paying attention. I recently heard a caller during a popular national talk show ask the host whether Darrell Issa’s ongoing crusade against Eric Holder would turn off more moderate independents. By the way, this caller identified himself as a conservative!

We should never compromise our position to placate the phantom sensibilities of the Independent. Liberals claim standing up for conservative principals will turn off the center, but never suggest hardcore leftist positions will have a similar effect.

They try to back spineless pseudo-conservatives into a corner, giving them little option aside from caving on a key issue in order to attain the approval of the Independents. This is a frequent argument from the left, even though independents generally gravitate to the right.

Conservatives shouldn’t be surprised; liberals always come up with reasons they feel we should moderate our views “for our own good.” In reality, they know conservative principals appeal to the vast majority of Americans and they want to prevent another Ronald Reagan from cashing in on that advantage. Reagan understood and was able to verbalize why the right is right and why traditional values are traditional for a reason. Conservatives value unbridled opportunity for everyone and, as a result, everyone benefits.

Setting up the stage for November’s election, the left says, rightly so, that Independent voters will be a big determinant in what will inevitably be a much closer race than it should be. As a result, the GOP should be courting these voters, but not in the way the other side suggests. We will gain no support by betraying our core beliefs because, at this point, genuine conservative politicians are the only ones left with any core beliefs to begin with.

It would be a disservice to conservatives, independents and America for the right to portray itself as anything short of the pro-capitalism, pro-Constitution and pro-life alternative to the left. Let the center make an informed choice between two clearly defined options.

The problem liberals have with that scenario is they have a pretty good idea which side Independents would pick.

  1. I disagree with the premise that…." independent voters are usually less-informed….otherwise they'd vote conservative". I am independent and I chose to go that route rather than choose a party because I am disappointed with both parties. I am trying hard to keep up with political news and stay informed, as many other independents are also doing.

      Get a clue, Obama is a lying punk who is trying to destroy this country. He is a total liar and his birth certificate and selective service cards are forged and he possesses a CT social security number. Having an identity thief in the White House is horrible and inherently dangerous.

        Where in their post did they say they would vote oblameo?
        I also identify with being an Independent. There is nothing in this world that would make me for for oblameo, but I'm not tickled over Romney either.
        I agree with Ma. Independents are more informed than most. We take the time to investigate BOTH sides to find the truth. We don't go straight party because we're told to.

        So who do you suggest? Romney or Obama? There's not much difference between the two.
        That's why most Independents are looking awfully hard at Ron Paul. The only REAL choice.
        Why not back the one who's BEST for America instead of the lesser of two evils.

    Democrats are not traditional Democrats. These idiots are plants from communists. They are trying to destroy the USA and they all need to be placed into jail for a very long time pounding rocks into powder. These people are corrupt and dishonest and I've personally never seen such imbeciles running loose on capital hill. They are all anti American and deserve to be rejected from our National interests.

    I agree with Ma Sio's post.
    "…." independent voters are usually less-informed….otherwise they'd vote conservative".
    I disagree with this. Independents are usually MORE informed than others. We MUST take the time to investigate BOTH parties to decide who's BEST for America.
    A Democrat votes for a Democrat. (usually)
    A Republican votes for a Republican.(usually)
    An Independent votes for who's BEST for America.(always)

    I am an Independent voter and have been for 20 years. I will vote for a Conservative or Moderate Democrat if I think they will do a better job than a Republican would, yet I guess I am more Informed about what is going on this country to know it's headed down a path to destruction with Obama at the wheel. Let me be very clear about this part: I HATE LIBERAL AND PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS!!!! Okay now that that is out of the way, I do believe I am a Conservative and I stand for the Constitution, I stand for a Government that SERVES the people, not the People serving the Government!!! I also stand for traditional Family Values, and I hate the Gay Agenda that the left is pushing down our throats!!! I will also be voting against Obama and his cronyism Administration.

    I just wish there was someone to vote for other than Romney. He flip/flops on too many issues, and doesn't really have a plan…atleast he hasn't clarified one yet….Maybe he is keeping his plans a secret till the Obama/Romney debates and then will whack Obama over the head with some awesome plans. I really hope he picks a solid VP that Americans can stand behind.

    I have to say this one more time, in case you missed it earlier: I HATE LIBERALS AND PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS!!!! They need to go down and live under Hugo Chavez's socialist regime if that's what they are planning for America.
