It is extraordinarily telling that the only true “maverick” in this political campaign is a self-made, hard-working, straight-talking homemaker who fought her own party to become governor of Alaska. It is equally extraordinary and revealing that the key philosophical argument against Barack Obama’s plan to “spread the wealth around” had to be raised and voiced not by some professor in a college classroom, but by a blue-collar American plumber in an Ohio suburb.

It is the intellectuals who have betrayed the American sense of life and rejected America’s founding principles of individual rights, free markets, and constitutionally limited government. Today’s “progressive” juggernaut is being propelled not by ordinary Americans, but by pampered elites and economic parasites: tenured leftist academics, rich Hollywood celebrities, entrenched regulatory bureaucrats, and tens of millions of recipients of the unearned fruits of “redistributionism,” from corporate welfare to college grants to food stamps.

Are there still enough Joes and Sarahs left in the country to stop the bipartisan lurch to the left that we have witnessed this year?

Will they show up in unprecedented numbers on election day, defying the smug predictions of the “experts”?

We’ll know in less than a week.
