Thursday afternoon on his radio show. The segment was called "Man in the
Street" and had as its main purpose demonstrating how ill-informed many
Americans (especially liberal and younger ones) are about their country,
leaders and history. At the same time, it showed how well versed so many
are in pop-culture, sports and gossip. These well done segments were both
entertaining and enlightening, and quite scary. It's sobering to hear
person after person not recognizing photos of George Bush, Dick Chaney or
Condoleezza Rice but having no problem recognizing Michael Jackson or
Brittany Spears. Truly frightening!
Sean would frequently express worry that these people were cancelling out
the votes of Republicans - a sentiment I shared - until yesterday. You see,
my mind inverts things...thoughts...constantly rolling them over and over
and providing different ways of looking at them. Yesterday, while I was
driving home, this thought must have gotten the Tony Robbins
positive-thinking treatment because I suddenly realized that I am actually
cancelling out THEIR votes. WOW! What a difference? In one flash, I went
from victim to crusader - Defender of the Right (pun intended) and all that!
I was pumped.
So, now armed with this new perspective, I have gone from worried to
hopeful. After all, there can't possibly REALLY be more Americans believing
the liberal-wing nuts instead of ascribing to conservative principles. With
that, my new mission is clear - get our numbers talking. To any
conservatives out` there who feel that you have no say, start writing
letters, speaking to friends, and making your voices heard. The Republican
Party needs you to be silent no more!
