It has been my personal observation that people who support Democrats tend to be much more likely to have flexible morals than those on the other side. I am not at all sure if it is a case of cause or effect. Is the political position chosen because it fits their internal morals better? Or, does associating with that political thinking lead to moral decay?
It’s more than a personal observation: 7 in 10 felons register as Democrats. More than twice as many felons identify as Democrats than all other political affiliations combined.
I can’t say for sure what is cause and what is effect, if any. It could be some independent vector causes both.
I have another observation that might be related. I managed to get myself on fundraising email lists for both Democrats and Republicans. I probably get a half dozen emails from each every day. There are some themes both have in common such as they both try to invoke fear. Here are some examples:
Our conservative values are under attack, Joe, which is why I have teamed up with loyal conservatives who have agreed to DOUBLE every donation.
my campaign manager says we need to raise $24,864 in the next 48 hours, or we won’t be able to continue this campaign to protect the American Dream.
Mitch McConnell’s conservative mega-donors are dead-set on CRUSHING our momentum and keeping McConnell in power so he can confirm more justices like Brett Kavanaugh and dismantle even more of Barack Obama’s legacy.
We have to fight back immediately! I set a make-or-break goal of raising $150,000 by midnight tonight, and I need your immediate help to hit it.
Please, Joe Huffman, click here to give a triple-matched contribution of $5 (it’s worth $20) or more to help Democrats flip the Senate.
I need to make this clear for you: Our country’s future is at stake!
There are things each side does which the other does not do. Republicans appeal to rule of law, respect, and principles. Examples:
The progressives in Washington are acting like grade-school children with a substitute teacher. It’s time to send them home, restore dignity and responsibility, and stand with President Trump in keeping America great.
Schiff has been at the center of every investigation, witch hunt, sham trial, and false whistleblower outrage. He even lied about the President on national TV to deceive the media and the American people. There is no bottom for Adam Schiff.
The future of conservative values is on the line in 2020, Joe. It’s up to YOU to help keep our values alive.
Pelosi threw a temper tantrum and ripped up the copy of the President’s speech. She didn’t just deface the President’s speech; she spat on our nation’s history, the Tuskegee airman, Rush Limbaugh, a little girl from Philadelphia, a mother weeping for her child, and a soldier returning home to his family.
While the Democrats are focused on bringing our country— and its policies— to the far left by embracing socialism, we are striving to go back to the basics on which our party was founded: “Government of the people, by the people, for the people.” – Abraham Lincoln
Democrats tell people they are special:
Hi, Joe Huffman — We’re shaping our strategy to elect more Democratic women to the Senate in 2020, and we need your help. Please, will you give your strategic input before our official focus group closes? You can use this link: http://www.dscc.org/wsn-focus-group
Right now Democrats have seven amazing women candidates running against Republicans in key battleground states. And as the chair of the DSCC, I’m personally reaching out to a few highly-informed, dependable supporters like you for input.

As the DSCC’s Executive Director, I want to invite you to join a small and exclusive strategy group by taking a survey that will provide crucial input to our Senior Leadership Team.
The responses from the handful of Democrats who join this strategy group will provide a critical grassroots perspective, which we will use as we develop the Democratic Party’s strategy to flip the Senate and remove Mitch McConnell from power.

Hey Joe Huffman,
I’ve been searching through our database of Washington supporters, and I selected a few highly-informed and very active Democrats to get input from. I’m happy to let you know that you are in this group, Joe Huffman.
More than 437 of the Democrats I selected have agreed to be interviewed — but our team’s data analyst tells me we need 10 more responses before we can consider these results for our party strategy.
Your input is crucial as we finalize our strategy to help Democrats flip the Senate from Mitch McConnell’s control in the next election!
This is consistent with what I observed in reading The Communist Manifesto a few years ago:
The Communist Manifesto tells its readers that supporters of Communism are the intelligent people. They deserve, are destined to, and the good of all human kind depends on them, being in charge. That they “understand” the benefits of Communism to the bafflement of others is probably proof to them that they are the intellectual superiors of those that think Communism is, at best, prone to abuse.
In other words the second plausible answer to the obvious question is that those that advocate Communism are not very bright people who want to believe they are the brightest of all people. And that The Communist Manifesto tells them they are the brightest enables them to then claim themselves as intellectuals.
That Democrats think the law and rules do not, or at least should not, apply to them is consistent with the messages they tell their followers—they are special people.
