Now that the United States has a new national tragedy to focus on, the Senate had four Democratic-controlled states reach across the political aisle to make sure that President Obama’s provocative gun control package would not be reality. Not now, possibly not ever. If gun control “reform” is coming for America, it will not be because the President forced his agenda upon them. It will be because they are outraged that Congress went against its wishes and turns it further in the Democratic direction in the 2014 elections.
However, the stinging defeat for the President is probably indicative that the mainstream media’s attempts to make America think it believed in the measures were unsuccessful. See, poll after poll came down showing that Americans overwhelmingly supported Obama’s gun control initiatives. And yet, with a majority, a national tragedy of epic proportions, and a Republican party in absolute shambles, Obama couldn’t get it done.
Could it be that all of the polls were not really a good indicator of America’s true temperature on this subject? Could it be that we were being brainwashed into thinking that America was behind it when it’s really not?
Obama was quick to blame it all on politics as usual after word came down. How terrible for the politicians involved to vote against and not agree with him? That is clearly the will of the American people being broken down before us, right? Because a quick look at the polls always shows that nearly everyone agrees with President Obama. Never before has a President had such a mandate.
So, as President Obama licks his wounds and pouts about not getting his way, for once, should we the people wonder if this same tactic isn’t at work in other agendas? Could gay marriage, now the coolest thing since sliced bread according to polls, not really be on the upswing as much as they want you to believe?
The power of suggestion is amazing. People will change their views or accept other views simply based on the idea that other people are adapting. But perhaps these polls aren’t really representative of where America is as a nation.
