Why vote for the lesser evil?
If you vote Democrat, you vote for the branch of the Cathedral’s public relations department that specializes in moving the left edge of the Overton window leftwards
If you vote Republican, you vote for the branch of the Cathedral’s public relations department that specializes in moving the right edge of the Overton window leftwards.
A vote for Romney will slow the destruction of the private economy, but it means that private health care goes outside the Overton window, that ending population replacement goes outside the Overton window. If Romney gets elected, advocating private health care or border control, or stopping illegals from voting will be as crazy career suicide as advocating white supremacy – as crazy as advocating any non left policy that no longer receives support from the mainstream parties.
The left is the state, and the state is the left. The Republican party is part of the state, and so the range of policies that it is thinkable for republicans to endorse moves ever leftwards. Supposing it matters which party gets elected, the median voter is a gimmiedat, and both parties, in order to win, must appeal to the median voter.
Further, the median voter is a gimmiedat due to policies that used to be unpopular, furtively implemented by both parties, back in the days when the majority of voters were producers and taxpayers, furtively implemented unpopular policies to increase the number of gimmiedat voters and decrease the number of producer voters, steps towards the day when such policies could be openly implemented, as they now are.
The destruction of marriage increases the left vote, as do most government policies. Married women overwhelmingly vote republican, for obvious reasons, single women overwhelmingly vote Democrat, for obvious reasons. Single women expect the government to redistribute wealth from males to them, married women expect their husbands to support them. Thus single women are part of the gimmiedat coalition. One of the big factors destroying marriage is affirmative action accreditation of women and affirmative action employment of women. Give a woman a PhD, and chances are she will wind up a cat lady, because even if her PhD is total rubbish, she will be reluctant to marry a non PhD. Can you imagine a Republican addressing this issue, or any of a thousand other policies to elect a new people? The government encourages and pressures people to move from the producer class to the gimmiedat class by a vast multitude of measures, and no elected republican proposes to end any of these measures.
