Conservatives gaining

Herman Cain encourages those of us who believe in less government, less taxes and less dependence on government (Conservatives), to continue to oppose President Obama's effort to drag the nation far to the left:

First, we can and must continue to voice our opposition loudly and collectively to wrongheaded, anti-liberty and anti-free-market proposals. There are some moderate Democrats who are against these socialist policies, and they recognize that their congressional seats may not be bullet-proof in November 2010. They need to know we are paying attention.  

Second, the power of the ballot box has not diminished. It has just been temporarily hijacked by liberals. Thomas Jefferson observed that “The American people won’t make a mistake, if they are given all of the facts.”

We can and will continue to give people the facts.

Left-wing Liberals/Progressives may have won control of the government with the help of the biased main stream media, but Conservatives outnumber Liberals. Last week, Gallup reported "40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative, 35% moderate, and 21% as liberal."

Last month, Gallup reported a majority (51%) of Americans now call themselves "pro-life" on the issue of abortion. This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have identified themselves as pro-life since Gallup began asking this question in 1995.

Gallup suggests that Americans' movement toward pro-life may be a reaction to President Obama's pro-abortion policies -- funding abortion overseas, expressing his support for the Freedom of Choice Act, and moving toward rescinding federal job protections for medical workers who refuse to participate in abortion procedures:

It is possible that, through his abortion policies, Obama has pushed the public's understanding of what it means to be "pro-choice" slightly to the left, politically. While Democrats may support that, as they generally support everything Obama is doing as president, it may be driving others in the opposite direction.

That's right. The shift to the right is occurring among both Conservatives and Moderates and Obama may deserve the credit.
