If you didn’t like the results of the November 6th, 2012 elections then the good news is that we have two full years until the 2014 midterms…and four years until there’s another chance to drive Democrats from the White House.
The hard part is realizing just how much the national media in this country has truly become a Ministry of Truth for the Left…and how Americans by-and-large accept what the tee-vee and newspapers tell them every day.
How do we counter that?
How do we discredit and defund Minitru?
How do we get our friends and neighbors to see that winning elections is not just about beating the opponent on a ballot…but also about defeating the media too?
If you watch the show The Walking Dead on AMC and you know how stressed, frustrated, and ragtag the survivors of the zombie apocalypse are at this point in the series, then you’ll appreciate how many people out there feel this way in real life today. And not just when they’re playing around on their phones, like my boyfriend Justin with his “Plants vs. Zombies” game — where he plants little flowers and mushrooms in rows to thwart hordes of ghouls — and screen after screen of attackers just keep coming; if Justin loses his cool or lets down his guard, he’s overwhelmed and his happy little garden is devoured.
That’s what it feels like listening to Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Martin Bashir, and the rest of the cast of MSNBC pushing the Left’s agenda on Americans every single day…or reading what their counterparts in the dinosaur ink-and-paper trade churn out in terms of propaganda every morning. Every day, there’s something new from them…they just keep coming…and up to this point there’s been no effective countermeasure, save for Andrew Breitbart…who sadly (and heartbreakingly) is no longer with us. So many people feel overwhelmed, while the faces of Minitru smile like jokers on the screen.
There’s a whole lot of hope, though, just watching Justin lob watermelons or corn cobs at his marauding ghouls (and, frankly, amusement when imagining that happening to Chris Matthews especially). Justin wins if he stays focused…and all the ragtag little seedlings keep doing what they do best, never giving up or becoming discouraged. Eventually, Justin builds up a wall of defense and starts taking the fight to the zombies…and the tide turns on his iPhone.
The same will be true for our own struggle against Minitru…which starts today…and every day…in the lead-up to the next election.
If you ever wonder why Democrats win so often, it’s largely because they begin focusing on the next race as soon as the last one ends. Republicans tend to wait a year and a half to get back in the game…which is why their GOTV efforts seemingly keep failing.
How about doing something different this time and borrowing the tricks and tactics of the Democrats’ playbook to use against them?
And — more importantly — how about treating the national media the way it should be treated…as an active opponent even more powerful than the Democrats on the Left?
Every day is a chance to take action…so how are you going to do that today?

What’s on your mind?
What stories are you reading?
What have you done today to get yourself reported to Attaaaaaaack Waaaaaaatch?
What did you think about last night’s debate in Orlando?
Who is Fox News pushing?
Who surprised you?
Who changed your mind?
More hilarity from the Internets, inspired by Joseph Goebbels, Barack Hussein “Not A Civil Libertarian But Probably A Muslim” Obama, and AttackWatch.com.
The Internets tell me that Joseph Goebbels was “a German politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945. As one of Adolf Hitler‘s closest associates and most devout followers, he was known for his zealous oratory and anti-Semitism.”
Golly…zealous oratory and anti-Semitism. Now who does that remind me of…?
Whoops…gotta report myself to #AttackWatch.
So, who did you report to #AttackWatch today?
What smears about Teh Won have you been spreading?
My momma always said, “If you can’t say something nice, come sit by me.”
What’s on your mind today?
Did you watch the Sunday shows?
Is the LSM still telling you that only Rick “Gardisil” Perry and Mittens Romneycare are “electable?” Is Sarah Palin still too “polarizing?” Is Ron Paul still being ignored, despite coming in #2 in total fundraising and #1 among active duty military fundraising?
What media manipulation have you noticed today?
What have you done to research the non-LSM-annointed candidates?
“Captain WTF” waved his magic Stimulus wand last night, so you should have awakened with a new job this morning.
So, please tell us about it! How did you find out about your magical new job? Do you get to wear a fun uniform? Does it come with a company car? How about a pension plan?
What……? You’re STILL unemployed?
You must be a damn dirty raaaaaacist.
Happy Labor Day, courtesy
Barack Hussein “The Only Job I Love Is Mine” Obama.
Oh, the irony.
The U.S. economy grew by a net of ZERO NEW JOBS in August.
How are you celebrating Labor Day? Fourteen million unemployed Americans have nothing to celebrate today. I hope you’re not one of them.
What are you doing, this last day of summer, 2011?
What are people talking about in your part of the country?
What’s going on in your part of the world today?
What are your friends and family talking about? Are they paying attention to the election yet?
Although Hurricane Irene did billions of dollars of damage to the Carolinas and New England, she was a piker compared to our Flimflammer-In-Chief. You’re not serious about destroying an economy until you’ve managed to rack up $14 trillion dollars of debt.
And now Obummer has a new excuse to add to his list, along with earthquakes, The Tea Party, the Tsunami, George Bush, the sun being in his eyes, and the dog eating his homework.
So, what’s on your mind today?
