Desperate Dems Think They Can Win the Meme War With Pathetic 50-State Strategy
The desperate Democrats are realizing they have to change things up if they want to start winning elections. That’s because they’re up against a conservative movement that has become a finely tuned meme-machine — a decentralized operation that pumps out a never ending supply of user-made jokes, information, and opinionated rants via various forms of media. The 2016 election showed us that a decentralized meme-jihad (the inner struggle type) consisting of mostly the work of volunteers can be more powerful than a billion-dollar highly coordinated effort run by data scientists, the entire MSM, and over a billion dollars worth of ads.
How do the Democrats plan to counter our decentralized meme-corps? By investing an entire $10,000 per state, per month, into their ‘ground game’. Many Democrats are cheering the move, thinking this is a great start. But $10,000 for an entire state for an entire month is practically nothing, when you do the math.
There are 3,142 counties or county-equivalents in the United States. Divide that number by 50, and you get an average of 62.8 counties per state. Then divide $10,000 by 62.8, to see how much each county would get, and it comes out to $159.13. What the heck can any county accomplish with 159 dollars per month? And on top of that, it is likely that most the money will end up going to the urban areas with higher population — the areas that already tend to vote ‘D’ anyway.
But when you realize that this 50 state budget isn’t even something totally new — it’s just a 33% increase from what they spent to achieve their electorally-devastating results in 2016 — the situation becomes comical:
Beginning this October, all state parties will receive a monthly $10,000 investment from the DNC through 2018, which is a 33 percent increase over the base funding levels from 2016 and a 100 percent increase over 2015. This is a historic commitment to party building at the grassroots level.
It turns out, it’s barely even an increase of what they were spending. And only double from 2015. This isn’t a new program, or even something meant to be effective.
This sounds like it’s just the DNC Chair, Tom Perez, blowing smoke up the Democrats so he can act like he’s accomplishing something. But he’s just throwing a few dollars at an enemy that really has no leader and doesn’t need funding. We already smashed a billion dollar campaign behemoth that had the entire corporate media spinning for them. Do Democrats actually think $159 a month per county is going to knock the Trump-train off the tracks? It’s laughable.
