Voting Population Summary

The link above uses population data obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau and uses voter percentages significantly more conservative than for example, 2008 voter data compiled by the Roper Center at the University of Connecticut.  Roper data makes this case even more compelling.

The link above shows a spread sheet developed by the professionally observant 1600 Watch staff depicting a likely Democrat voter breakdown for the November 2012 elections.  1600 Watch developed this simplistic analysis to investigate why Obama’s job approval ratings are so low, yet his personal approval ratings remain high.  In some respects this is typical in that Presidential “personal” and “job” approval ratings are frequently, if not usually divergent, but one wonders if within what appears to be typical, there may lie significant trend information.

As The Zen Trucker has noted, “If things seem different than they appear;  it’s because they are”.

The numbers show that excepting Federal, State and local government employees,  likely Democrat voters make up approximately 55,107,000 voters, that is, about 41% of the 133 million U.S. voting population.  We have today approximately 18,452,000 Federal, State & local government employees having employment compensation packages well in excess of that typically enjoyed in the private sector.  This 14% of U.S. voters is not likely to get excited about any candidate running for elected office and who may be promoting cuts to government spending and balancing government budgets.  It appears that approximately 80% of  government employees consistently vote Democrat, which adds nearly 15 million Democrat voters to the roles and comprise 53% of the 133 million voting population.  This data is a bit sobering if you prefer a balance of power in a so-called two party contest.

It becomes even more sobering if we consider that these 14.7 million government worker Democrats have family members who are axiomatically vested in these high paying government jobs as well.  If one half of these 14.7 million Democrat voting government workers have spouses or voting age children who also vote Progressive Democrat; our 53% stated above, becomes 58%. That’s not too doggoned far from 2/3 of American voters.  Obviously, government patronage votes appear to be an important component of Democrat voter block strategy and the beauty is, working conservatives are paying for more than half of it through taxes.  You may recall that the lower 50% income strata pay virtually no income tax what-so-ever, which means that as a practical matter, working Americans of every persuasion are uniformly financing and locking in the Progressive Democrat power base whether they know it or not;  or like it or not…and we haven’t even mentioned the Marxist unions.

Given as an example, that Roper Center data shows 67% of voting Hispanics voting Democrat in 2008; while 1600 Watch conservatively (no pun intended) projects only 57% for the estimated percentage of likely Hispanic Democrat voters in 2012;  it’s pretty easy to see why Democrats are nearly drunk with the idea of illegal amnesty for what… I don’t know, let’s say 11 million to 30 million Hispanic illegals, more than 70% of whom will be cajoled against their own best interest to vote Progressive Democrat.  The success of this Progressive Democrat political strategy guarantees the complete dis-enfranchisement of America’s fruited plain even though the hard working, fruited plain is paying 99% of all the bills.  Can you say SUCKER?

While the voters of America have been drowning in the 24-hour, press corps slop focused on our “growing” Keynesian economy and its meteoric rise in the “right direction”, along with other distractions such as, Moochelle’s wonderfully luscious White House garden and her eliminate the fat kids program, her fabulous trip to Spain, Arab Spring, Libyagate, Obama’s Royal Toast, Weinergate, which U.S. allies Obama is insulting now;  which U.S. enemy he is apologizing or bowing to;  though I seldom hear mention of the covert operations going on in Yemen;  our golf pro, community organizer In Chief and his Marxist Democrat cronies have been and are steadily building a highly paid, dependency loyal, patronage constituency inside our very own Federal, State and local governments.  We gotta give credit where credit’s due.  We the people have been had and we voted for this scheme…at least a lot of us did.

Building bigger government isn’t just about confiscating our working wealth and distributing it to favored insiders and government sanctioned monopolies like the new curly light bulb companies…let me mention here that only fools believe that socialism distributes wealth to the little people.  It’s also very much about building a highly dependent, patronage voter constituency that ain’t going away anytime soon, if I understand what Congress is not talking about.

Anyway, this is why 1600 Watch believes the fruited, conservative plain has a serious up-hill battle on its hands, if it thinks that Progressive RINO’s like Gingrich and Romney; fake Tea Party, One World Globalists like Rick Perry (Texas Governor); or very compelling, ex-Federal Reserve bankster Herman Cain (who 1600 Watch is desperately trying to trust) are going to take down the National State media, King Obama and/or the Progressive, Democrat Ruling Senate in 2012.  Seriously folks – we really need to wake up.  The good part of the American experiment may be over if we don’t.

The really good news is that serious Americans – that would be Tea Partiers –  do appear to be waking up.  If we can get the sleep out of our eyes, maybe pray a little and start voting in a more informed way – the half baked, central bank controlled, monopoly loving, make-believe free markets we have suffered with so far may all be brought to an end and driven out of “OUR HOUSE”.  The world has never seen or experienced true capitalism or true free markets unleashed to their full potential;  nor has the world shared the incredible benefits that will mutually and commonly prevail if we can successfully vote Marxism in all its putrescent forms out of our governments and lives.

Spill the sugary kool-aid and drink some tea with your friends.  It’ll be good for your family, your country and the world.

The average American citizen as of 2011, and I hope 2012, still freely votes and can preserve freedom for their children and grandchildren, but it will require a national awakening and resurgence of vigilant patriotism along with, I believe a sincere request for the assistance of Divine Providence, just as it did in the days of 1773 through the Revolutionary War and through the Constitutional Convention ending in 1787.  This awakening, should it occur will allow us to continue “voting for freedom“, thereby overcoming the persistent blight of Marxism for at least a little while longer.  Our failure to awaken prior to November 2012 will likely result in the future necessity of our children and grandchildren “bleeding for freedom” in order to take back the unalienable rights our Sixties generation foolishly gave up in return for the pathetic promise of a Nanny State that failed before it began.

Socialism has not ended well anywhere on earth and it will not end well in its second attempt here in the U.S.  Our first historic socialist attempt was, of course, at Jamestown from 1607 through 1610, which failed miserably under the negative incentives of forced collectivization and indentured servitude from the time of Captain John Smith until the first official Governor, Lord De La Warr made private property ownership possible.  After that, private enterprise with the help of tobacco farming led to a thriving prosperity in Jamestown.**

The bloody disease of Marxism used to be more generally referred to as Communism and was imposed by force on the unfortunate victims of Russia and later the entire U.S.S.R., China, Nazi Germany (a variant), Cuba, North Korea, North Viet Nam and other sad places.  More than 100 million decent people were starved, imprisoned, tortured and murdered that “the worker’s party” might thrive – at least for those that survived the forced re-education.  Of course, we know now that there was no thriving and this force thing wasn’t really working either, so Marxists began to listen closely to clever, delusional busy bodies like Antonio Gramsci, Herbert Marcuse, Saul Alinsky and others of their ilk, who promoted the incremental idea of Marxism through an arbitrary form of freely chosen, government slavery idyllically referred to now as “social justice” .

Social justice is a nice sounding euphemism for an arbitrary system of mob rule insuring “no justice” and is subtly enforced today using various different labels, names and a supposedly better idea injected into the mass consciousness over a long period of time.  This failing, freedom eating, incentive devouring infection is what we now live with in most of Europe and America today along with its various pseudonyms such as socialism, progressivism, liberalism or the errant cousin fascism.  Semantic nit picking aside, it’s all just Marxism, lies and pain.  Social justice is not and never will be “equal justice”, call it what we will.

Making it worse is the infiltration of Marxist nuts into every social network imaginable with the subsequent turning of focus from the intended goal to, of course, Marxism.  For example, the environmental movement has largely become a national movement against private property rights and attacks hundreds of small businesses on a daily basis in farming, lumber, fishing, etc.  The persistent and destructive environmental onslaught, viciously waged against our own citizens, Constitution, freedom, common sense and rational thinking is nothing more than liberal bullying, mindless, Marxist vigilantism and Progressive mob rule, as Ann Coulter might articulately describe it.  The sexual / feminist / gay rights / civil rights / animal rights movements have become manipulative tools for advancing special favors, funding and treatments for select societal groups;  a basis for attacking less Progressively favored, less select groups;  and finally, a poisonous vehicle for undermining our families, Churches, personal initiative and Constitution based Rule of Law.

The idea of social justice is a poorly lit, grimy, back door entrance to the prison of intellectual enslavement as spawned within the dark belly of Marxist delusion, all locked down with the guilt gilded key of “political correctness”.  All the dried out branches of collectivist thought hacked from the dead tree of Marxism, such as communism, socialism, fascism, etc.  demand social justice, which simply put requires the equality of outcome for divergent persons and societies.  Outcome equality in turn requires that high achievers or winners, if you will, be punished and underachievers, losers if you will,  be rewarded.  Winners and losers must be forced or coerced to choose a common denominator called fairness, which as a standard, by practical necessity lies close to the bottom of the barrel.

There is, in fact, no fairness or justice to be found within the morally bereft concept of social justice.  No people, no society in history has ever prospered under this form of government driven, government controlled, government dis-incentivized tyranny – freely chosen or by force.  Socialism is, in fact, about controlling and taking wealth from productive labor;  not sharing it, excepting its distribution to well connected government insiders whose monopolies are heavily subsidized via the taxed (confiscated) wealth of the well populated middle class.  Social justice and it’s half sister, political correctness are today’s incremental tools of choice used for leveraging uninformed voters into forced sharing and actually choosing and freely voting for arbitrarily adjudicated social justice for the chosen ones in what otherwise, might remain a free and equal society.

Hitler’s brown shirts or Mao’s dreary, gray uniforms appropriately depict the subjugation of the soul as limited to neither light nor dark, black nor white, but only to a dingy brown or faded gray neutrality, devoid of life, color or humanness.  All of life’s wonderful challenge, opportunity and the pursuit of excellence is crushed beneath the forced depravity of equal sameness, where the hopeless loser lives with the guilt of unearned reward and the vibrant winner is frustrated by forced idleness and mediocrity.  Contentment is not possible.  Achievement is hopeless.

Socialism is akin to confiscating the good seed of productive labor, carelessly throwing it down upon hard, infertile  ground, then leaving it to wither and die as the central planning, farm manager silently and hopelessly writes a report as the seed tries valiantly to root;  to fulfill its nature, but it can’t.  The seed finally just sprouts as best it can, sputters pathetically, tragically dies and is finally trampled underfoot and wasted.  Socialism is easy, requires no personal responsibility or integrity, certainly no ingenuity as this is discouraged and punished;  but unfortunately and consistently, produces little value and much pain for manager and worker alike.  The written planning report will none-the-less reflect another glowing success and positive outcome for all.

Capitalism on the other hand offers equality of opportunity, leaves outcomes to us as individuals and rewards ingenuity.  It is never easy, requires both personal responsibility and integrity and to the extent such is not realized, fails much like socialism itself.   However, where responsibility is taken seriously and incentivized the pursuit of excellence flourishes and the standard of living, even for the under achievers is raised substantially.  This is historic fact.  Also of historic fact, is the importance of a balance of power in fine tuning the capitalist system to maximize its potential benefit.  Hence the primary importance and necessary care taking of our Constitutional Republic with its built in balance of power between our three branches of government.   The wisdom and effort of our Founders carefully planted good seed in fertile ground, but the tree of liberty must always be watered and nurtured or it will die.  There is no one but ourselves to perform this watering and nourishing.  To the extent we encourage or allow our government to take on our own personal responsibilities, our garden of liberty is guaranteed to turn to dust.

Governments don’t care, don’t build, don’t create and don’t give, regardless what government loving socialists tell us.  If you observe carefully, you’ll quickly and consistently notice that socialist dialogue and thinking, such as it is, is limited to complaint, criticism, ridicule, demonization, character assassination, mis-direction, mis-representation and outright lies.  Socialists are uniformly and always Phase I thinkers in terms of and as Dr. Thomas Sowell describes Phase I thinking in Applied Economics.  A socialist by conditioning is incapable of asking, “and what happens next”…and “what happens after that”?  A socialist is only trained to destroy, to tear down and to diminish the basic building blocks of productive society.  They know nothing and care less about creating, building or re-building what they have destroyed.

Unfortunately for America and the world in the year 2011, liberal socialists have been much more clever, some might say cunning, at the practice of politics and mass voter manipulation than are conservative capitalists.  This becomes even more overwhelming when we add in the Establishment Progressive Republicans like Gingrich, Huckabee, Romney and others who are conservative in name only.  The odds are heavily against any successful resurgence or awakening with regard to Constitutional principles and the American people actually voting for their own independence in November 2012.  We are being smothered and choked to stupidity by ignorant, irresponsible Marxism; a sycophant Leftist press and to that extent I believe it is nearly certain that Barack Insane Obama will be re-elected for his second term…but not absolutely certain and we’ll go over the numbers and make that case next week.

**An un-redacted account of Jamestown’s founding (referenced here) is provided in “A Patriot’s History of the United States” by Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen as published by Sentinel in 2004 on pages 16 through 18.

Mr. Benjamin Franklin as he was leaving the final meeting of the Constitutional Convention held at the Philadelphia State House on Sept. 17, 1787,  was asked by the wife of Philadelphia’s Mayor, “What type of government have you given us”?  Franklin replied without hesitation, “A republic madam.  If you can keep it”.

For those of you working within the blindingly hot air balloon of the Washington D.C. Beltway, or those of you actually believing and accepting the hot air, having subsequently become dis-connected from natural law and the economic reality of American life;  the English words STOP SPENDING can be loosely translated as cease, desist, discontinue or please quit wasting our money on unconstitutional, illegal, collectivist, crony nonsense.  You folks in the House and Senate, not to mention White House have taken an oath of office.  For God’s sake honor it or go home and leave “we the people” alone.  Our Congressional “ethics” committees should painfully be required to attend old school Jesuit ethics classes to at least understand what ethics are and what an oath is and means.  To protect and defend the Constitution of the United States is not a complicated thought.

We don’t need voters clamoring for special interest beholden candidates to promise government job creation, a better economy or anything else.  We need people clamoring for independent candidates who will take an oath to “get the government the heck out of our lives and our way”.

Spending is effectively, unconstitutionally and illegally being used by our Federal elected officials, regulatory agencies and the privately owned Federal Reserve Banks as the primary tool for crushing the independence of the American middle class in the interest of Global Governance.  This has now reached a treasonous level of high crimes and misdemeanors, is openly and dishonestly enabled by the corrupt Statist media, and yet the average American citizen complacently snoozes through each election cycle as though in a working coma.  I hate the term Sheeple, but have to admit its applicability to the average citizen of the United States today.  If we don’t want to be sheep, maybe we should quit acting like sheep.

Uncontrolled, irresponsible government taxing and spending has driven our manufacturing industries and jobs over seas;  undermined our credit worthiness as a nation;  is literally destroying our currency;  is driving up commodity prices;  is funding wars and political instability across the globe;  is manipulating our behavior;  and I believe will soon lead to drastic economic failure and all the horrible things that travel with it.  America is not immune to gravity or basic economic principles and does not live above, outside or beyond history.

As Uncle Ron Reagan mentioned in his First Inaugural Address (1981),
“In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

Ben Franklin understood this and said as much in 1787.  President Reagan was right in 1981 and he’s still right today.  We weren’t listening in 1787 or 1981 and we’re not remembering now.  Say what you will about Ronald Reagan, but he got it prophetically correct with this one.  Because we are largely uninformed voters in spite of a miasma of communications technology, we are enabling 545 people to destroy freedom and prosperity in the United States.  435 House Members, 100 Senate Members, 9 Supreme Circus Members and 1 s0-called President are trashing our 235 year old Republic and are thereby subjugating 313 million American citizens to collectivist tyranny.    We are freely voting for this.  Why?  Some examples of left / right hand holding?

Regarding the 2008 alleged Banking crisis;  yes, the Big Banks fleeced us, but our Congress set the stage, provided the props, music and lighting and are still today providing cover and Bankster protection under a tragic theme entitled The Community Reinvestment Act of 1977.  This corrupt act of our short sighted Congress created the “subprime” credit market and led directly to the creation of irresponsible new forms of debt instruments, in turn packaged and auctioned off in the highly delusional derivative markets.  This would not – could not – have happened had our Congress not unconstitutionally and illegally guaranteed to the Big Banks, that we, the uninformed tax payer would guarantee the immanent “bad debt” through Fannie and Freddie, while the Banks gluttonously reaped the enormous fees and interest – while it lasted.  Well, it ain’t lasted and Congress is now pushing “subprime” on Big Banks again.  You can’t make this stuff up.  Our corrupt Congress is  already back at it.

Has one single Bankster, since pulling off the October 2008 tax payer swindle called TARP, been indicted?  Arrested?  Tried?  Convicted?  Of course not.  Not by the Establishment Right Bush Administration and not by the Marxist Left Obama Administration.  There’s your sign folks.  Sometimes “nothing” means “something”.  In this case “nothing” is ample evidence that the Establishment Right and the Marxist Left are both wholly owned subsidiaries of Big International Banking.  The Establishment Right develops clever tax legislation (more than 65,000 pages) and insider deals for the benefit of the world’s elite and the Marxist Left creates easily manipulated, centralized government regulation (more than 175,000 pages) to more ably enforce the government sanctioned, government protected monopolies of Big International Banksters and their inter-twined, corporate conglomerates.  The Right makes the deals and the Left enforces the deals, all the while both grunt and bleat concern and caring for the little guy, who is apparently sound asleep in the paddock rather than wide awake at the wheel.

The Marxist Left and Establishment Right parrot differing rhetoric thereby blanketing all sides of the political voting spectrum with Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) propaganda, but actually work hand-in-hand just wonderfully to fleece “we the people”.  The Right hand voter flocks to talk radio and Fox News, while the Left hand voter flocks to NPR and The New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CNN and MSNBC.  It’s just a multi-stage, lying freak show with all voters on both Left and Right losing 100% of the time.  This level of “fixing” isn’t legal even in Las Vegas.  It’s like shooting at the bad guy’s shadow and wondering why he or she doesn’t ever fall down; talk about “Buyer Beware”.

The only political movements in America today that actually respect our Constitution and our unalienable rights as recognized by it, are the Libertarians and the Tea Party Movement – and surprise, surprise.  Libertarians are ignored excepting ridicule, while the Tea Party folks are ridiculed, demonized and belittled by both the Establishment Right and the Marxist Left.  The average voter, struggling valiantly just to survive, hasn’t a chance at truth anywhere.  Listen up folks.  If you’re not drinking some tea or downing Libertarian ale, then you’ll soon be sipping gruel in the nearest government “soup line”;  and I mean to tell you, your government ain’t no soup chef and the gruel was confiscated from somebody else anyway so it ain’t yours.  Give it up and make your own.

Where and how did this lunatic, Left / Right partnership in promoting a return to feudal serfdom start?

It began in earnest with Mayer Amshel (Bauer) Rothschild about 1773, when in league with Adam Weishaupt and others, the socio-political-economic plan for One World Government control by the world’s central banking elite was spawned.  I’m not going into this as you can easily look it up for yourself, but you should at least understand that The Bank of England through the Rothschild consortium did an end run around our Constitutional Republic with the formation of the privately owned, Federal Reserve Banking System.  Controlling interest in all central banks of this world, including our Federal Reserve are held by the Rothschild consortium excepting, Iran, Libya, Cuba,  and North Korea.  The Central Bank of Iraq came under Rothschild control with its creation in 2004.  I’m not sure about Egypt.

In 1913 the Big International Banks, using gullible Woodrow Wilson’s bully pulpit, sold the uninformed American voter on financial protection:  that is, financial protection for the Big Monopoly Banks;  but legalized fleecing for the voter at the hands of the newly formed Private Bank fallaciously named Federal Reserve System (2nd Plank of  the Communist Manifesto).  There is of course nothing Federal about it and there are no reserves protecting the voters financial interests.  With classic good sense and fore sight, the Big International Bankers had already passed the Sixteenth Amendment earlier in 1913, which we know as the Progressive Income Tax (5th Plank of the Communist Manifesto).  Things were never equal or the same for voters again.  It’s been a consistent, well planned down hill ride for American individual freedom on the Bankster hay wagon of deceit ever since.

The Left in the form of Marx, Lenin, Mao, Hitler, Castro and others have been and are financed and educated through Rothschild consortium sponsored foundations, think tanks and study groups.  They formulate and carry out planning and implementation for the establishment of centralized government, the top-down structure of which is very easily controlled by elite purse strings.  The Leftist drones of today think they’re fighting the big bad corporations and cannot see that their favorite regulatory agencies and Big Government bolster and protect the monopolies the Establishment Right has cleverly created.  The Left literally warrant their own assured destruction, once centralized serfdom is attained.  If the Left ever read history, they would see their own death;  but they don’t apparently read.

Let’s consider Sarah Palin.  I don’t frankly know if she can be trusted in a conservative sense, but taking her at her word for the moment, let’s assume for our purposes she is a true conservative.  The Left is terrified of her and simply douses her with hatred and mindless vitriol.  No secrets or surprises there, but how does the Establishment Right damage Palin?  Charles Krauthammer, a leading Neo-Con, Establishment Right thinker and pundit, as an example, earlier this week pandered to the Tea Party by complementing Palin on several fronts, then closed with the clinker.  The clinker is that she hasn’t taken the time and put in the effort to be “properly schooled” over the past two years in the important issues of the day.  What does that mean?  It means that Ms. Palin has been invited and has refused to attend the accepted Establishment Right study groups, think tank meetings and so forth, as handily provided by the Council on Foreign Relations and their Establishment affiliates.  She has apparently refused to toe their Establishment line and therefore, the Charles Krauthammers, Karl Roves and William Kristols of the Neo-Con Right will pander mightily to the Tea Party folk, but will always subtly undermine her and anyone like her, in the end.

If you want objective truth in the world today, you’re going to have to hunt it down for yourself.  No one will give it to you, you’ll have to claim it;  become it;  and you had better be prepared to pay the cost.  As Bob Dylan writes on page 125 of Chronicles, “Truth was the last thing on my mind, and even if there was such a thing, I didn’t want it in my house.  Oedipus went looking for the truth and when he found it, it ruined him.  It was a cruel horror of a joke.  So much for the truth.  I was gonna talk out of both sides of my mouth and what you heard depended on which side you were standing.  If I ever did stumble on any truth, I was gonna sit on it and keep it down.”

Both the Establishment Right and Marxist Left detest the Sarah Palins of the world, which makes it nearly impossible for the average voter to obtain objective news or information about her and people like her anywhere within the realm of conventional media.  The lack of responsibility, integrity and Judeo-Christian morals in our media outlets and journalism today are responsible for mis-using their free speech to destroy our free speech through political correctness, outright misrepresentation, omission, etc.  This is a dangerous time for us to be apathetic about being governed as it is morphing  into being ruled at what is becoming an exponential rate.

There are very few examples in history of a people giving up their freedom and getting it back.

Think for yourself and be free.  Listen carefully.  Watch observantly.  Vote responsibly.
