The Democrat Playbook: Discontent and Dissension

The Left continues to perpetrate outlandish, radical programs and policies



In a Gallup Poll four years before Barack Obama was elected president, 74 percent of white Americans and 68% of black Americans said that race relations were good. Less than one score later, today, 43 percent of white Americans and 33% of black Americans say the same. What changed?

Fomenting Distrust

Half of the nation relentlessly seeks to racialize every issue. Radical Leftists represent a minority of the Democrat base but yield tremendous influence over the rest. Thus, increasingly, people feel less trusting, less joyful, and less like they are an integral part of a unified nation.

National unity is a powerful construct for countries old and new. Without unity, social progress is stymied. What signifies unity? A national anthem, secure borders, a common language, a shared history, a constitution that guarantees the rights of the citizens, and agreement as to what constitutes effective governing.

Without unifying elements, a nation will weaken, and its social conditions will unravel. If we are not subject to the same laws, rules, and essential morality, achieving agreement, compromise, and cooperation on various issues is harder.

Lacking unity, a military cannot function as needed. Our elected representatives cannot serve us effectively. Our law enforcement officers are likely to be perceived as unfair to all.

Who, Indeed,  Benefits?

Who benefits from a disunited America? Who wants us to be fraying at the edges, and who wants our citizenry to distrust one another? The disuniting of America is an intentional, long-term goal of the Left. By their convoluted reasoning, we are an evil nation and must be dissolved.

These zealots scoff at patriotism. They believe that religion is only for the weak-minded. The family unit, to them, is a Right-wing tool of oppression.

Obama defined what the Left now regards as standard in assessing America – we’re merely another country, one of 200+ on Earth. Pride in being American is no different than pride in being Greek. Nothing is special about America. People flock here every day because of their misunderstanding of our true nature.

The Left is committed to putting America last in all things and to assigning blame to our nation in all domains. Dividing the population is their key strategy. As long as blacks and whites don’t see eye to eye, and as long as other groups are told that they’re being marginalized, the Left is succeeding. Even as immigrants throw off the shackles that formerly bound them, the Left tells them that they are being oppressed, that they could have more, and that the white man is their nemesis.

Compelled by Ideologically

The commitment of these anti-American zealots is lifelong. To them, you don’t succeed in  through hard work; success is a matter of privilege and not much else. Whenever they can hack away at America’s strengths, they’ve done their good deed.

Their ideological compulsions to loathe Caucasians, Christians, and straight people propel them each day. They’re small in number but loud in amplitude. Their views infect academia, publishing, TV, radio, Hollywood, and the arts.

They gain psychological strokes from one another for denigrating our institutions and our traditions, and they are dangerous. Many of the world’s internal revolutions succeeded because a small minority took the reins while everyday citizens did little or nothing. Consider the origins of the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution, and Mao and the Chinese.

The more fanatical and vocal these groups are, the more influence they have over those less committed but willing to go along. Our saving grace is that those on the Right will never capitulate to the antics of the Left.

We know right from wrong. We know our nation’s history, where we did and didn’t do well. We know our place on Earth and why people still seek to come to America daily, while virtually no one wants to leave.

They Will Not Succeed

The Left’s programs and policies are destined for failure because they have no faith in the goodness and virtue of the common man and woman. Thus, we on the Right have tremendous power, if still largely untapped. We need to make our voices heard, to stand up in the face of unfounded attacks on our country and targeted individuals.

Our combined strength will make a difference. The progress we seek can come sooner and more easily than we imagine. Corrupt regimes, once reaching the tipping point, fall quickly, such as the former Soviet Union, the Philippines, and East Germany.

As the Left continues to perpetrate outlandish, radical programs and policies, the pushback will be equal if not greater. Even many of those with whom they had made inroads are realizing the perilous path that the Left is treading.

Provocative Questions to Get You Moving

What would make you pause and think about what’s really important?



Suppose I asked you four questions to make you pause, think about what’s really important, perhaps take some action steps, and get you moving in a positive direction. What might I ask?

Here are four such questions:

* What would you do if you truly only had six months to live?

* What would you read if you could only pick six books for the rest of your life?

* If you could return to any age what would it be?

* If you could live anywhere other than here, where would it be?


By way of example, here is each question with my own answers to help stimulate your thinking:

What would I do if I truly only had six months to live? I would visit everyone who ever mattered to me one more time; visit all my childhood haunts; visit three or four tourist destinations in the world that I’ve wanted to see; eat like an incredible pig; parcel out my assets carefully and accordingly, safeguard my daughter’s financial future and well-being to the best of my abilities; and donate many items to charity.

If I could only read six books for the rest of my life, they would probably be The Timetables of History, Childhood’s End, The Call of the Wild, The One Hundred, From Dawn to Decadence, and The Culture of Celebrity. Runners-up would be The Demon-Haunted World, Crime and Punishment, Moby Dick, MacBeth, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, and The World of Our Fathers

If I could be any age what would I be: 38, because at that age I had the optimal mix of capabilities and faculties, unbounded potential, and unbridled enthusiasm. My career as an author was beginning to bloom and amazingly I hadn’t yet been on my first of 45 cruises.

If I could live anywhere other than here, where would it be and why aren’t I there? The places I could settle include Asheville, NC; Austin, TX; Monterrey, CA; Sausalito, CA; Tucson, AZ; Las Vegas, NV; Vancouver, British Columbia; London, England; Paris, France; Vevey, Switzerland; Montreux, Switzerland; Bruges, Belgium; Helsinki, Finland; Gothenburg, Sweden; Stockholm, Sweden, and any place where it is spring, birds are chirping, and large lakes invite you to swim.

21 Ways That People with Work-life Balance Are Different from Others (Part 3)

Even in our fast-paced society, slowing down is continually attainable



Here is the final set of seven ways the people who have attained work-life balance set themselves apart from the rest:

15) The typical person is easily distracted by daily noise and interruptions. Those with work-life balance monitor and manage their personal space to minimize distractions.
* carry ear plugs
* sound proof your workspace
* find alternative work locations and spaces, such as a picnic table or park bench * visit

16) The typical person focuses on finishing the workday in order to drop back and relax. Those with work-life balance are productive at work and have a life for the rest of the day after work.
* leave work at a reasonable hour
* reduce TV watching and web surfing
* employ your den as a mini-gym
* engage in invigorating leisure

17) The typical person engages in inactive leisure, i.e. watching TV, web surfing. Those with work-life balance employ leisure for novel experiences, learning, and physical activity.
* live closer, not farther from work
* rediscover hobbies
* join group activities
* peruse local event notices and attend

18) The typical person intermittently invests in his or her own well-being. Those with work-life balance strategically purchase goods and services that support their well-being.
* buy in multiples when all supplies will eventually be used up
* make strategic purchases…
* if it saves one hour a week
* if it takes up little space, is portable, expandable, flexible, can be traded in

19) The typical person longs for the good old days when the pace of life was slower. Those with work-life balance recognize that even in our fast-paced society, slowing down is continually attainable.
* acknowledge and accept the world as it is
* seek to change aspects of your personal environment over which you have control
* consider the 80-20 rule and ignore low-payoff tasks and activities
* emulate the role models in your industry, organization, or profession

20) The typical person over-collects work-life balance tips hoping that such information will rub off on them. Those who have work-life balance ingest the insights of others, and ultimately follow the beat of their own drum.
* put what you learn into motion
* adopt new behaviors until they become habits
* establish new personal systems
* develop rewarding rituals

21) The typical parent passes their hectic lifestyle on to their children. Those who have it teach their children what is needed to continually experience work-life balance
* remember: children learn most from observation
* exhibit behaviors that you want them to emulate
* include them in activities, ask for their opinion
* act accordingly: actions speak louder than words
