You might think we’re crazy for saying so, but Wendy and I believe Tuesday will be one of history’s largest election upsets. There are several reasons we think so. Consider…
1. The media is in the tank for Obama, but the truth is still getting out.
The impression is blatant and intentional: Obama is “so far ahead” that the election is practically over. Really? Zogby reports today a mere 5 point spread between the two, where Obama has not yet secured a majority of the electorate (i.e. above 50%). Still, Obama is planning victory parties and predicting success reminiscent of Reagan (Reagan won 49/50 states in his race against Mondale). Nothing of the kind. TIPP polls show over 10% undecided (TIPP was the most accurate poll in the ’04 election) and McCain is the one gaining with undecideds. Don’t listen to the pundits who say this election is over. It is an extremely close race.
The alternative media (and you can consider this blog a part of it) is uncovering the reality of an Obama administration. The phenomenon of Joe the Plumber has rocked the news. An amateur cameraman captured Obama reprimanding a plumber about small business administration: “I just want to spread the wealth around.” The mainstream media immediately began rummaging through Joe’s past to discover any morsel of dirty laundry to bring Joe down. It was reported he didn’t have a plumber’s license (you can still operate as a contractor without a specific plumbing license) and he owed back taxes (but he still files honestly).
Did the media ever think of researching Barack Obama’s comments? Maybe dig a little deeper? For those who know the philosophies of Karl Marx, Obama’s financial picture of tax policy would be very similar. The YouTube video of Joe the Plumber’s simple question spread like wild fire, but the mainstream media largely ignored it. On Friday, one brave news anchor drilled Joe Biden about this. “Are you kidding?” Biden responded when asked if the Obama administration was Marxist. No Joe, not kidding. Biden was clearly upset and the Obama campaign canceled all appearances with the local news agency.
Notice Biden’s flat-out denial of the meaning of “spread the wealth around.” He denied the notion that it was Marxist or even socialist. Now, this is a denial that the mainstream media should investigate. But, once again, the alternative media uncovers the reality of the Obama administration. In 2001, Sen. Barack Obama literally calls for a “redistribution of wealth.” Posted on YouTube and Drudge Report this morning…
If you watch CNN or NBC or any of the more left-leaning mainstream media outlets, you will be oblivious to such news. Can you call this anything other than a cover-up? Why is it that Matt Drudge and amateur YouTube video enthusiasts doing the truth-seeking that journalists should do
In a previous post, I said this was 1992 all over again, where the media took active part in covering up Clinton’s shady past. But this isn’t 1992. In 2008, we have the Internet, Fox News and talk radio. Alternatives are rampant. Still, much of America rely on the mainstream media as their primary news source. Encourage your loved ones to be free from such propaganda. Even the mainstream media elites are crying foul; the following articles were written by Democrat journalists:
2. Several misleading factors with the polls
There are several factors that are making the pre-election polls wobbly. First, the polls are polling TV watchers. Most cable shows are bundled with DSL packages, and those with cable or DSL likely have landlines. Those who are dependent on Internet news (the source of alternative media) rely on cell phones, not television. Internet-savvy folks are much more educated as to the issues of this election, and because of this they are more apt to vote for McCain/Palin.
There is the Bradley Effect, too. While some debunk this theory, I beg to differ. In 1982 Tom Bradley (a black man) lost the governorship of California to a white opponent even though Bradley was ahead in the polls. Some attributed this to racism, but I attribute it to the tendency toward political correctness. When a pollster calls today, the polled voter will be more apt to be for Obama. He’s the more politically correct choice, and the constituent will–especially if he or she is undecided–lean toward Obama on the phone. However, when entering the voting booth, people vote free from the fear of being labeled politically incorrect. Chances are good that a good portion of these voters will vote for McCain/Palin.
Finally, there is the fact that Obama has not secured a majority vote despite the media’s full-fledged Obama campaign. TIPP reports Obama 46.5%, McCain 43.4%, undecided 10.1%. Not only is this within the margin or error, but those that lean undecided is huge. If McCain gains the majority of this number, he will win this election.
These may be petty points, but with an election within single-digits of each other (and some polls within the margin of error), this election can clearly go either way. Call us wishful thinkers, but we’re convinced that McCain/Palin will pull through.
