Least Divisive Issues

Very good voter attitude seen in this short segment, that is if you like poll numbers. Some polls are good, most are fair, but a lot are slanted. Sometimes it's hard to figure out which.

I found this statement to be confusing, ironic, sometimes true, but also kinda pathetic. When asked what they personally wanted from their Congressional member, many voters responded: “For them to bring home the bacon and cut the size of government and federal spending.” (call this a Rick Perry “Whoops” moment.

This is another aspect of those polls that stands out. It reveals the top four least divisive issues voters are concerned about in their member of Congress:

1.  Those who advocate for defense cuts.
2.  Those who advocate to fix rather than repeal Obama-care.
3.  Those who support same-sex marriage.
4.  Those less critical of President Obama.

So, we must ask: Why do Republicans pursue those four issues all the time as critically-important knowing full and well that they are divisive and non-productive. There seems to be a huge disconnect between what the voters perceive as what they want vs. what their members want them to perceive as import. That might fit into the history pages category with this reminder, as pathetic a reminder possible, but must be read for the scope and intention:

Never allow the public to cool off. Never admit a fault or wrong. Never concede that there may be some good in your opponent. Never leave room for alternatives. Never accept blame. Concentrate on one opponent at a time and blame them for everything that goes wrong. People will believe a big lie sooner than a little one, if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

I'll leave it at that for this session.
