from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
A guy called into Rush Limbaugh this past Tuesday. He was a retired college professor who is done with the Democrats. He voted Democrat his entire life until 2016 when he pulled the lever for Trump.
Basically, he wised up to the lies of the Democratic Party and became a conservative. And unlike some Republicans, he liked the way Trump fought back against the left and threw it right back at them.
He said he was definitely done with the lying Democrats, but he also voiced his frustration with Trump, which Rush didn’t seem to understand. Well, I for one understood exactly what the professor meant, because it’s the same way many conservatives feel.
We all know, at least those of us who are constitutionalists, common or otherwise, that the only way to win against the left is on the issues. And the only way win the issues is not through tweets and sound bites, but through education.
The left understands better than the right how effective sound bites are. Short little quips and pithy sayings evoke emotion, but not thought. And for the left, it’s all and only about emotion. The left knows if they allow people to actually put some critical thought into what they are saying, they’ll bail on them, as they should.
Take common-sense gun legislation, for example. Who could be against that? It’s a great sound bite. But what does it mean? Who cares! It has “common sense” built right in.
Rush insisted that Trump is the only Republican who has pushed back against the left – the only one who refuses to take their crap. He’s right about that, and we all appreciate it.
