The tribe has spoken

We are tribal voters, but unfortunately the Bully Tribe not only has money, chutzpah, and a pocketful of media, they are well......bullies who will stop at nothing (even if it comes down to the sacrifice of some of their own, to "win".
The Not-so-bullyish/sharer Tribe has the heart & soul, and feels to their cores that they are "in the right", and should prevail, but the "elders" of that party (the ones with big money) are not as interested in winning-at-any-cost.
The Bully tribe is willing to eviscerate any who dare to confront them, and will spend any amount of money, time, effort to "win". The followers of the Bully Tribe, will take their orders eagerly, and will do what is asked of them, even if they might be one of the "sacrificed". They want to be aligned with the "winners", even if it's personally costly.
The people who are not devotees of the Bully Tribe, often have many interests, and the "elders" who are on their side, seem to be less interested in defeating the Bully Tribe, than in carefully choosing their battles, and are willing to retreat (withhold money) when it seems as if the gain might not be "worth it".
The Bully Tribe always gives 110%...even in the face of possible defeat.
and that's why they "win".
