    Abortion, abortion, abortion.

    That's all the Democrats are talking about in the waning days of the 2022 midterm campaigns.

    But if they're paying attention to the polls, they'll realize that the 1992 presidential campaign motto of Bill Clinton rings true now more than ever: "It's the economy, stupid."

    "A lot of these consultants think if all we do is run abortion spots that will win for us. I don't think so," James Carville, who ran Clinton's campaign and coined the motto, said last week. "It's a good issue. But if you just sit there and they're pummeling you on crime and pummeling you on the cost of living, you've got to be more aggressive than just yelling abortion every other word."

    A poll earlier this month laid out the issues Americans most want Biden to focus on.

    Economy - 55%

    Employment/Jobs - 24%

    Immigration - 21%

    Environment - 16%

    Unifying Country - 15%

    Corruption - 12%

    COVID-19 - 9%

    Racial Inequality - 8%

    International Trade - 2%

    Other - 5%

    Notice what's missing? Abortion.

    What's more, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) says Democrats are missing the point on crime as they overhype their support of abortion.

    "People actually think the Democrats are more extreme in their eagerness to kill babies than Republicans are in their desire to save babies," he told The Epoch Times. "Their activists are so intense, and so rabid, and their activists have been giving money, it feels like it's a good issue for them. But when you go out to the country beyond the hard left of the Democratic Party, it's in fact, not working for them at all."

    Abortion is "not helping Democrats as much as they think," Gingrich said.

    A Monmouth University poll this month found inflation is "extremely or very important" for 82% of Americans, but Biden's approval rating on the issue is just 30%. Crime is second at 72%, but Biden's handling is 32%. And immigration comes in at 67% for voters, but the president's approval rating is 31%.

    "Democrats are all over the place when it comes to their key issues. This makes it difficult for the party to create a cohesive messaging strategy to motivate its base. Republicans, on the other hand, just have to hammer away at rising prices and 'the wolf is at the door' to get their voters riled up," said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.

    "A major problem for Democrats is their base messaging doesn't hold as much appeal for independents as the GOP issue agenda does. Even though truly persuadable independents are a rather small group these days, this small difference can have a major impact given the expectation that congressional control will hinge on a handful of very close contests," Murray said.

    Then again, the Democrats don't have much to say about their efforts to repair the economy so badly damaged by President Joe Biden, do they?

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.
