Why are Democrat policies nearly always focused on this or that group rather than the country at large?
It’s really very simple. Legislation and tax policies which provide benefits to all citizens yield fewer votes, political contributions and favors to Democrats than “targeted” proposals. The Democrat guiding principle is to divide us into groups, and then to threaten punishment to certain groups while offering rewards to others.
Despite the Democrats incessant bleating about “fairness,” unequal treatment of both groups and individuals is essential to Democrat electoral success. Graft, envy and anger are the keys to Democrat hope and change.
The sad truth is that Democrats need and promote racial and social division. Without homophobia, sexism and racism all you have left is personal responsibility. Democrats can’t “fix” that with your tax dollars and votes.
From the Daily Mail via Instapundit:
“In Asia there’s a new tendency for men to go their own way – with thousands shunning marriage and kids for a life of independence and control, which no family court can destroy. The same thing is happening across America and Canada.
In fact, author Helen Smith PHD recently published a book entitled Men on Strike, where she notes that: ‘America has become anti-male. Men are sensing the backlash and are consciously and unconsciously going on strike. They are dropping out of college, leaving the workforce and avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates.’
Now, it’s happening here in Britain. This isn’t because men are ‘selfish’ or commitment-phobic pigs (as women frequently like to suggest). Rather, it’s because they’re tired of being ousted from families, of being shafted by sexist divorce rulings and being denied the most basic paternal rights.
These guys know that any child they have with a woman would be her baby, not their baby.”
