Greetings all and a Happy Thanksgiving to each and everyone. It may be our last as the Democrats have successfully managed to attack and close down reduce or postpone all our national holidays in the name of fear.
What follows below is a post from another conservative forum that needs to be shared, especially by Georgian voters. It is one woman’s opinion on Georgia politics, but it reads as though it probably has a solid basis and may be right on the money.Wake-up call in Georgia
Let’s be clear. I am a Floridian. If you had asked me a month ago who the Georgia Senators were, I would have looked at you blankly and asked why should I care? Well, a month has changed a lot in the political landscape of our country. Today, our government as we know it is under attack and whether we remain a constitutional republic where people are responsible for themselves or we spin off into some sort of semi-socialist state where wealth is redistributed through increased taxes and social controls and big brother is responsible for us is the open question. Make no mistake, this attack on our country is very well-coordinated and strategic and it is working better than their leadership’s wildest dreams.
I know what I am going to say will be very unpopular to many Trumpers. I will begin by saying that I am and ever will be a bold and active supporter of our 45th President. However, someone has to speak the truth to us. So, this is my truth to you.
I just returned from a three-day trip to Georgia to canvass for their two Senators, Perdue and Loeffler. My two girlfriends and I canvassed Northwest Fulton county, in the area of Sandy Springs and Roswell. These two areas are very wealthy. The homes are worth millions of dollars and they surround the Cherokee Country Club, voted the 22nd best country club in the country. What we found was a nondiverse population that was mostly white and over an estimated age of 50 with many clearly in their 70’s. Of those who answered the door, the split between Republican and Democrat was about 60:40 as was to be expected according to https://projects.
In addition, as we have seen in Florida canvassing, the Republican voters were cautious to express their voting views while the Democrats often expressed their views angrily and aggressively. Two Democrat voters told me that I was trespassing and threatened to call the police and two others continued screaming at one of our group even when she had left their property. Bottom line, this area appears to have voted about the same as it had voted in the last several elections. Our job was simply to get out the Republican vote in this area and I think we accomplished our small part of that.
The real story here is not the get out the vote campaign for the mostly white suburban voters who reliably turn out to vote, but the explosion of voter registration and get out the vote campaigns in African American and Latinx communities in downtown and suburban Atlanta and for that matter in Georgia. While the Republicans were encouraging their base to get out and vote, the Democrats have been actively expanding their base through outreach to their natural constituencies and others. They have been registering African Americans and Latinx and encouraging and supporting their vote through frequent and consistent messaging, engaging voters early, and investing aggressively. Historically low turnout voters in Georgia have been WOKE by the Georgia Democrat Party and now have consistently turned out to vote in the mid-term election, the gubernatorial election, and now in the 2020 Presidential election in higher and higher numbers.
The results are clear, Joe Biden won 500,000 more votes in Georgia then Hillary Clinton did in 2016. The old adage that “if there is a low voter turnout, the Republicans win and if there is a high voter turnout, the Democrats win, is alive and well. The Democrats and specifically Stacy Abrams in her “The Abrams Playbook, the Strategy and Path to Victory in 2020” have outplayed the Republican Party of Georgia. https://fairfight.
Make no mistake, the Abrams Playbook is in full force now in Georgia. One house that I canvassed thought I was a Democrat and told me in no uncertain terms that she had everything she needed and that she was all set to vote in the upcoming election. Clearly, she had been handled by a Democrat operative and “assisted” in her voting plan before I showed up. This systematic, aggressive, and strategic outreach to Democrat voters, Democrat leaning voters who were formerly not likely to vote, and Democrat leaning voters that were previously not registered is why Georgia has turned blue. The race for the Senate will be an all-out sprint. Perdue may pull it off this year, but if Republican messaging and strategies do not change, Georgia will be reliably blue into the future.
What this portends for the rest of this country is clear. The Democrats have out thought, out strategized, and out organized the Republican Party across the country. They have broadened their base, expanded registration of unlikely voters, have frequently encouraged and prepped their voters, lobbied and changed legislation to support their voters, and have mobilized a large and growing voter block. If the Republicans do not make drastic changes, broaden their message and their base, and pay attention to legislation that benefits one side and not the other, they will continue to lose in larger and larger numbers.
