The real narrative emerging from this election is that this is not a question of left versus right, D versus R. This is becoming a battle between the Political Class Elitists and grassroots America. As the majority of Americans see their values, their beliefs, their rights being dismissed, derrided, and slandered by an ever-more evident political class. Here are excerpts from an article that highlights some of the examples of political class elitism versus the rest of the country. We’ve added a few links to our own stories that show political class elitism:
What do today’s nationwide Congressional elections, a judicial retention election in Iowa, and a vote on Nevada’s judicial selection method have in common? All three give voters a chance to say no to elitism.
Nevadans are voting today on a ballot initiative, Question 1, that would replace the popular election of state judges with judicial selection by a special commission (the governor can choose only from among the commission’s recommendations). The Question 1 campaign has generated national controversy because of robocalls to Nevada voters, as well as videos, featuring former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor touting the initiative and warning that popular election of judges breeds corruption……
….But what caught our attention about the campaign to take responsibility for judicial selection away from the citizens of Nevada and other states is its elitist flavor, epitomized by O’Connor’s statement last year that allowing voters to select judges makes the process “tawdry and embarrassing.” …..
Elitism is also on the ballot today in Iowa, where voters will decide whether three of the state’s Supreme Court Justices get to keep their jobs. Judicial retention elections are usually rubber stamps, but the Iowa Justices’ jobs are in jeopardy because all three voted to strike down the state legislature’s decision to define marriage as between a man and a woman…..
In typical elitist fashion, the Justices’ supporters have questioned the very legitimacy of citizens voting against retention because they oppose a judge’s decisions. Polls show that a sizeable majority of Iowans oppose same-sex marriage — explaining why the state’s Democrat-controlled General Assembly balked at allowing Iowans to vote on overturning the Court’s ruling…..
There is agreement across the political spectrum that 1) the 2010 Congressional elections will largely be a referendum on President Obama, and 2) Obama’s declining popularity is due, in part, to a perception that he’s aloof and out of touch. There’s not much difference between being aloof and elitist, but in any case, Obama has earned the elitist label through the comments he makes when surrounded by like-minded folks at fundraisers.
Recall the San Francisco fundraiser where Obama opined about “bitter” small-town Americans who “cling to guns or religion.” And just last month, at a Boston fundraiser, Obama explained that Americans are dubious of his agenda only because “we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared.”
Similarly, Obama and the Democratic leadership in Congress blamed the deep and widespread opposition to ObamaCare on Americans being misinformed, scared, perhaps racist, and unable to comprehend the President’s health care message through the fog of a fierce debate (despite the President’s 54 speeches on the issue)…..
