According to Elizabeth Warren, Dems’ message must be more than “not Trump” if they want to retake the halls of political power in America and reshape and remake the country into what they want it to be.
“If your message is ‘not-Trump,’ it’s not going to work,” the Democratic presidential hopeful told about 500 supporters who packed a rally at a high school gymnasium in Reno. “Our job it to talk about our vision.”
And, to some extent – certainly more than 1/1024th so – she’s right. The majority of the sorts who are likely Democrat voters won’t settle for just “Not Trump.” They demand that their chosen ones be that and firmly and stridently against any and all of the Makers in America. In their minds it’s unfair that the productive are more successful than the Eaters and Takers.
But then, that’s the intrinsic nature of the shiftless failures that gravitate to Socialism and Neo-Socialist economic policies. They firmly believe that they deserve more than what they’ve earned and that the difference must be given to them by taking from those who’ve done better for themselves and their progeny.

Hillary Fears Greatness
That part of what passes for Hillary’s campaign that hasn’t simply focused on how her reproductive organs entitle her to the Presidency has largely been focused on deriding and attacking her opponent, Donald Trump. And yet, little to none of Hillary’s negative campaigning against Trump has actually attacked the efficacy of his policy positions or his demeanor and rhetoric. Simply put, it seems not that she believes that Trump is wrong but that she fears – indeed, is terrified of – Trump’s success and the restoration of America’s greatness.
This is both very telling and completed expected and rational. Hillary’s aspirations require her constituency and her constituency can’t survive a resurgence in American greatness. This is not to say that the majority of them literally wouldn’t survive it. Instead the majority of her constituency would thrive under it and no longer be the sort to support her. That is Hillary’s greatest fear and the greatest fear of the cynical leaders of the various agendist movements that support her and other Liberals and Progressives.
That’s the thing about these sorts. They can only gain power when and if they can convince the masses that possess some “protected trait” that they’re disadvantaged and that this is because of the actions or, as is more often the case these days, inaction of the unprotected, normative members of society.

Some people, especially the Liberals and Progressives, loves to spout off about how times have changed and the old paradigms are no longer appropriate for America.
The Monkey’s Remain The Same
Yet times may seem to change but certain sorts and demographics don’t change. The monkeys remain same, dreaming of- and chattering for those free bananas and throwing feces when they don’t get them.
When it comes to teaching, the importance of the parables can hardly be overestimated. Scholars, rhetoricians, politicians, and philosophers as long ago as Socrates Aristotle used the didactic approach of these succinct stories to teach and illustrate deeper truths and moral or spiritual lessons in a fascinating and intriguing manner that engaged the student.
In light of that, I present the Parable of The Lions:
There was a pride of lions in the African Savannah that did very well. They were the envy of the plains. They did so well that often the other prides would get to feed on their leftovers. In fact, some actually lived on these remains. Their success was based on their great leadership. The Alpha pair would not tolerate laziness or cowardice from the others in the pride. After a while, the other lions’ envy grew and with it so grew their resentment. They said it was not fair that these few should have so much and meanwhile, they only shared in the scraps and their plight was always a struggle.
As their envy grew, so did their boldness. One day, with the help of other sympathetic beasts, they managed to kill the Alpha pair. They rejoiced in their deed. They now had achieved the equality they sought after for so long.
After a while, the laziness set in for some of the others in the top pride. Without the strong leadership of the Alpha pair, this laziness became more and more prevalent throughout the pride and their skills and abilities diminished.
“What!?” Said the others. “You are no longer leaving scraps for us to take. That’s not fair! We are also hungry!” So, the others began laying in wait for them to make the kill and then they would pounce on them, overcoming them in numbers and stealing their meat.
The more that this happened, the less that the top pride was willing to hunt. Some that still possessed the cunning and drive moved from the Savannah to another part of the country where again they flourished and built up the pride as it once was.
In the end, the Savannah lions, no longer able to get sustenance for themselves, turned on each other. Now they live a meager existence and share in their equality.
Yes, “The Lions” is a compelling parable that presents both some of the political woes besetting America and rest the Civilized World and the underlying societal and moral failures that have engendered those horrific and destructive political issues.
