What's At Stake

2008 is an historic opportunity, and this time, it is vital for both parties that the Republicans win at least the White House, if not control of at least one part of Congress. Why would this be good for both parties, you may ask? Because if Hillary loses, and the Dems lose seats in Congress, this will be a repudiation of the divisive game the Democrats have played these past seven years, and it gives Democrats an opportunity to kick George Soros, Markos Moulitsas Zuniga and the Clintons to the curb. Maybe Democrats will come back with serious answers to the questions of our times, and they can act, as they should, in constructive criticism of GOP policies---something they have failed to do.

Think of the organizations on the Left causing the most trouble in American politics right now, such as Media Matters, MoveOn, and the like. If you want a good reference, check out Discover the Networks some time, and then let's play a game: Six Degrees of Hillary Clinton. You will likely not get that far out.

Now, let's compare the organization on the Left with its parallel on the Right-- for example, Media Matters on the Left and the Media Research Center on the Right. One very noticeable difference is that the org on the Right swears no allegiance to a particular conservative candidate, and acts as a resource for the entire movement. Its history can often be traced to the GOP re-org after Goldwater's defeat, and it grew organically as part of the conservative movement.

The same cannot be said for the organization on the Left. The Clintons built for themselves a network of organizations meant to parallel and counter similar organizations on the Right. This is an advantage in that the Leftist organizations can coordinate their message, and make the Clintons' favor indispensable for career advancement. However, the disadvantage is that the whole farm has been bet on winning in 2008, and the fate of these organizations is uncertain should she lose.

So, what happens if Hillary loses?

2008 is Hillary Clinton's last chance. She wouldn't have a prayer in 2012. In 2012, the youngest people to have remembered the Clinton years before people got disillusioned with them in the late '90s would be hitting their late 20's and early 30's, which some who study astrology call the Saturn Return. Whether or not you believe in astrology, you have to admit a lot of your life changes between the ages of 28 and 32. One of the bigger changes you are likely to see is a moderating of your politics as experience has often counteracted theory. Those young liberals the Clintons counted on in 2008 would be married suburbanites getting somewhere in their careers in 2012. Also, it's going to be harder to keep any screwups of the Bill Clinton Administration classified through November of 2012, when you consider that 2012 would be 20 years since Bill Clinton was first elected.

George Soros and his ilk? Well, I am one of the ones who ascribes pecuniary motives for Soros's actions. He made a killing bringing down the Pound Sterling, and I think he wishes to do the same with the US Dollar. So far, this seems to be costing him a lot more than he bargained for. A defeat in 2008 may finally get him to cash in his chips before he loses his shirt.

There's a whole house of cards stacked atop one thing: Hillary Clinton winning the Presidency in 2008. Pull her card, and the whole thing comes crashing down. In its place, a revitalized, serious, adult, patriotic progressive movement might finally have a chance, and American voters may again have a choice between two parties who may have ideological differences, but who will stand up for this country all the same.

With all due respect you are connecting the wrong dots. All of these groups and all of these networks don't lead back to Hillary Clinton but one George Soros. If you want to contribute to unlocking the secrets of 2008 don't focus on Clinton but rather on Soros. She wants to take credit for these groups to curry favor with the far left, however the real puppet master is Soros himself. He is the political Keyser Soze.

Yes, but Soros's plans are also dependent on Hillary winning in 2008. If, as I suspect, Soros's game is to put fiscally stupid people in power in the US to implement plans that would enable Soros to make a killing off the devaluation of the dollar, he needs those politicians to win.

At some point in a card game, it becomes obvious which way the wind is blowing, and you can choose whether to stick it out and lose your shirt, or cash in. I think Soros was on the brink of cashing in in 2006, but for the Dems' wins in Congress. A loss in 2008 may finally make him cry "Uncle!"

I would say that Soros' game is to create so much influence within the Democratic Pary that they march to his orders. He is trying to buy the Presidency as my piece points out.

Look at some of the radical ideas the Democrats have endorsed. They want to end don't ask don't tell. They want second graders taught a story about two gay princes. They want socialized medicine. They want to negotiate with Iran. These cross the gamet of political thought, from social, to economic, to foreign policy, and all of it is radical and the sorts of ideas that Soros himself embraces.

Hillary Clinton wants power, however Hillary Clinton is now beholden to Soros and will take her marching orders from him, because if she doesn't, his network will set its sights on her.

I don't know how that happened.
