When it comes to investing, we never want to follow the herd into the most popular stocks. Even if the crowd is right for a time, they’ll inevitably be catastrophically wrong. Instead, to really build life-changing wealth, we’d want a unique, contrarian strategy with a powerful and underutilized growth metric on its side. Enter The Dividend Sonar Report… a proprietary investing strategy that offers you the opportunity to trounce the S&P 500 and achieve your financial goals…
If you haven’t noticed lately, Democrats are crushing Republicans in debates. But there’s a very logical reason for this…
It’s not that Democrats are better debaters… or that they present better options for economic and social issues. Heck, they’re not even more charismatic.
The issue runs much deeper than that.
This week, I’m giving a special presentation to the Center for Sovereignty Studies on the greatest deception that goes unnoticed by most conservatives. But I want to let Wall Street Daily readers in on this wicked secret first…
Once this gets out, the Republicans will have another weapon to protect America’s values. As you’ll see, it’s practically black magic.
Most Americans are under a mass hypnosis, thanks to our media. So they never really stop to think about the ideologies or forces that influence our politicians. They falsely expect these people to share their same ideas about basic values.
Even Republican politicians are guilty of having this false expectation.
In my 30 years of political warfare, I’ve come to embrace this truth – a truth highlighted in Richard M. Weaver’s book, Ideas Have Consequences… In America, we’re currently in the midst of a protracted war of ideas. The opposing sides just don’t have much in common anymore.
When we penetrate the deception of media, we’ll come to realize that there are really only two sides to the conflict. But it’s not the red versus blue split that you may have in mind…
On one side, we have those who believe in unchangeable right and wrong.
And on the other side, we have those who believe morality is subjective, changing, and flexible.
While one’s code of ethics remains constant, the other’s is ever-changing.
In the end, these two opposing worldviews play by entirely different rules. And this disconnect is exactly what has disadvantaged the conservatives in the media lately.
The Book of “Power Rules”
You see, the majority of the mainstream media consists of people who’ve rejected traditional values and morality, seeing them as subjective.
As the great conservative leader Senator H.L. “Bill” Richardson wrote: “Those of us [who] espouse traditional American values must understand that contemporary confrontational politics isn’t of our making. It is, however, the foundation of the tactics successfully practiced by leaders of the left. We must understand their methodology in order to combat them effectively.”
Richardson was one of the first to recognize how the ideas of Saul Alinsky have completely transformed the Democratic Party and the left of center political culture. They embraced what are known as the “power rules.”
These power rules are what allowed both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to win two terms in the White House. The Alinsky power rules have transformed American political culture and debate.
Conservatives are taught as children to obey the traditional morality of our past. This makes them totally unprepared for modern debate. They believe such outmoded concepts such as: Don’t tell lies… respect the ideas of others because they are also God’s children… do unto others what you would have them do unto you… don’t be quick to judge… and nobody likes a braggart.
Alinsky, on the other hand, taught his followers that these outmoded morals are irrelevant. His driving force: Use every trick, because you’re seeking to get power to do good works for the downtrodden. Don’t worry about what you need to do to get power, just get the power. Then do what you need to do to keep power.
Basically, Alinsky taught that the ends justify the means. It’s hard for people who still believe in the “traditional process” to debate with people who’ve completely adopted a new set of rules.
This is the critical problem in American political culture. It’s unsolvable because there are no common ideas around which to build consensus. The U.S. Constitution was written by men who cared deeply about process.
Today, we are governed by men who only care about power. And they will keep that power by any means necessary, even if it takes a few lies – or even a few spells…
