Why Barack Beat Hillary

“In any collaboration between men of differing premises, it is the more evil who wins.”

I don’t have the exact quote handy, but this is my recollection of a quote fro Ayn Rand.

This is why, for example, I said that anti-jihad activists can’t collaborate with nazis.

“In any collaboration between men who share the same premises, it is the more consistent who win.”

Likewise, this is my best recollection of a quote from Ayn Rand.

This is part of my long-running theme about the blind elephants who keep fighting (and usually lose to) the blind donkeys.  They share the same basic ideas–unlimited government, limited individual rights, altruism, collectivism, and mysticism–but the donkeys are more consistent.

So this brings us to Barack’s victory over Hillary.  They both work towards the ruin of the US.  But Barack is more consistent (and more overt–Hillary is a better liar).  So the base constituency of the Democratic Party rallied to him as their leader.

Unfortunately, McCain shares the same basic ideas also.  The only meaningful difference (in fundamental ideas) that I can see is that he wants to fight (to some extent) against the jihad.  The Democrats want the jihadists to destroy us.

Let’s hope that the majority of Americans wants to fight and doesn’t want to be anihilated!

Update

I guess on the Internet, you can’t get away with anything! 😛

As a comment pointed out, I did not get the quotes correct.  From the Ayn Rand Lexicon:

In any conflict between two men (or two groups) who hold the same basic principles, it is the more consistent one who wins.

In any collaboration between two men (or two groups) who hold different basic principles, it is the more evil or irrational one who wins.
