Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

There is an important message to be learned from South Carolina.

Things are getting tough and they want someone to pay. Just like the Germans when Hitler took over. They were hurting and wanted an easy way out. The Newt is blaming the blacks, the immigrants, the media, and his authoritarian followers love it. The Newt is even blaming the Washington DC insiders and his followers are not smart enough to recognize that that would include him. They donít want reason, they want someone to victimize. They donít care if they have freedom, they will follow a dictator today. Donít under estimate them.

1. They were never the party of personal responsibility.

The very first card they play is the victim card. Disgusting.

7. In general, because it is easier to sell easy, black and white,....

blame the other guy solutions. The Democrats do tend to win on a level playing field or when the answer is defined in a way people understand.
It would help if the majority of Dems were not republican light, the media wasn't so lazy or outright against anti corporate policies, and if they had a backbone to fight for what is right.

2. The US is already a police state.

From here on out, it just matters how many people fight and how many go along.

3. Fear

Studies by psychologists show that people who are afraid tend to think and behave more conservatively. Hence, Republicans like to to stir up fear: of blacks, gays, Muslims, immigrants, liberals, etc. Our challenge is to show how progressive policies best address those fears.

8. I think that Obama is going to have to go negative. This is going to be a nasty election season.

If Newt is the Republican nominee, it will be scorched earth. Newt will run the dirtiest campaign imaginable, and I believe that Obama will respond in kind.

No matter who is the R nominee, we're going to get millions and millions of dollars worth of superpac ads from corporations attacking Obama. It's going to be an ugly campaign season.
