Some Sound Decent Advice

Posted by TheJOTUS on August 17, 2010

Because let’s face it, you gotta start somewhere. 

Gary North comes at it with some specific advice you won’t hear from the decepticons in the “big R” republican party.  Ten facts of American politics:

1. You can’t beat something with nothing.
2. 80% of politicians respond only to two things: (1) fear; (2) pain.
3. Bureaucrats (tenured) respond only to one thing: budget cuts.
4. Political reform never comes as long as the tax money flows in.
5. The #1 goal is to reduce the government’s funds, not re-direct them.
6. Congress’s club system sucks in 80% of new members by term #2.
7. Politicians listen to their peers, not to their constituents.
8. Money from the government buys off most voters.
9. Most citizens care little about politics and know less.
10. This gives influence to organized swing-vote blocs.

And eight rules of engagement:

1. Vote for a hard-core challenger on the other side against a squishy incumbent
2. Hold your newly elected politician’s feet to the fire the first time he breaks ranks on a key vote
3. Get him to sign a resignation letter
4. Track all of his votes on your #1 issue, and post them online
5. Find out who his largest campaign donors are
6. Instill fear
7. Inflict pain
8. Trust, but verify

Go ahead and click over.  It is a good read and worth the time.
