Going back to 1952, the Republican Party has won more elections than the Democrats. The GOP is 9-6 in Presidential elections. Yet its the Progressives whose agenda has moved fo0ward. One could argue that Eisenhower, Nixon, Bush I and Bush II were not Conservatives. But none the less, they were not Leftists, but still the country moved Leftward. This Leftist shift culminated in the election of America’s first 3rd World Liberation Marxist in Barack Hussein Obama. How did this happen? Well it come sdown to the fact both the Left and Right have different views in politics.
The Right is always looking for a Cannae/Austerlitz style decisive victory. Conservatives think they are one big electoral landslide away from saving the country. In 1972, Richard Nixon won a 49 state landslide. Yet in just 2 years in the 74 Midterms, the Democrats made a massive 49 seat gain in the House to get 2/3 majority and 4 seats to get 60 votes in the Senate. This pattern repeated itself after every big Republican win. Reagan had a 49 State landslide in 84, only to lose the Senate in 86. The GOP won Control of the House in 94, for the first time in 40 years and recaptured the Senate, only to lose to Bill Clinton in 96. In 2004, Bush won re-election then in 06, the GOP lost the House and Senate. It seems after every Austerlitz, the GOP suffers a Waterloo/Stalingrad style defeat. This is due to the fact, they rest on their laurels after a victory.
The Democrats on the other hand are willing to accept defeat to achieve long term victory. The Left follows Mao Zedong’s people’s war theory. They are willing to make tactical retreats and then inflict small defeats on an enemy that results in a big loss. Hence why after a massive defeat, the Democrats come back. If you look at the goals of the Democratic Party, they have practically achieved them, despite Republicans dominating the Presidency or Congress in recent times. That is because The Left has infiltrated Academia, the Culture and the Media. From these stronghold they launch guerrilla political war when the Right lets oits guard down. They then shape public opinion, which then results in their coming back to political power.
2012 will be a decisive battle, but not the end of the war. Conservative/Libertarians should seek to win control of local school boards, take over State Colleges, get involved in culture and create an alternative media, like what Britbart was doing. The Right must adopt Mao’s people’s awar strategy and aim for a long term victory. The Right also needs to define the enemy. The enemy is the Progressive-Islamic Axis. If Conservatives/Libertarians can do this and be patient, they will see the nation move Rightward. If after 2012, they assume they won a total victory, the next Stalingrad could come in 2014 or 2016 or 2018.
The Right must wage a political counter guerrilla war against the Left,as the AUC did in Colombia against the FARC. That was the most succesful Rightwing counter insurgency ever seen. The heirs of the AUC control the Colombian government, media, academia and culture. This is what the Right should aim for here in America.
Note: I am not praising Mao, who was a genocidal madman. I am pointing out the Left uses his people’s war tactics in politics. They take a long term view of politics and treat it as war.
