What a joy it is to see some of our young Conservative politicians pushing back against the elite Republican establishment.
They are finally getting what I’ve been screaming about for years. (or at least in part).
CHANGE PUBLIC OPINION.
Using the Media Flash Mob tactics, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz have taken an issue that 90% of the people agree with them own, and through public opinion have forced John Boehner to present an offer to de-fund Obama Care.
They were smart enough to know that they were in a no lose situation.
SO HOW DO YOU CHANGE PUBLIC OPINION? – If you’ve been following me you’re familiar with the “Name it, Claim it and Explain it” phrase.
First they chose an issue and without fear chose to take on the Dems and the Establishment Republicans.
Second they exposed and explained the negatives of the bill with facts people can understand. They understood the personal and emotional effects Obama Care would burden people with. Forced to buy insurance – inferior insurance – losing their 40 hour work week (forcing them to work two part time jobs) – destroying the economy – and for seniors death panels.
They exposed that Congress and special interest groups have been given a pass, but the little person is going to be forced into it. This will make you scream at your congressman.
Third – This is the one thing the Republicans have never figured out and is essential to success. Saturate the public. Evan a ‘low information’ voter will get it if you hammer it in their head using talking points and catch phrases.
Once the general public understood, their opinion was secured in favor of the issue, and were easily convinced to call their congressmen and encouraged them to support de-funding Obama Care.
Regardless of what the politicians want to support – we, the general public outnumber them.
Most people don’t want to be bothered with the issues of the day, but when they hear and understand the implications on their life they will act and politicians will hear.
THIS TACTIC WILL WORK TO CHANGE PUBLIC OPINION. If conservative politicians would band together and create a fund (which each campaign could contribute to) to change public opinion using these tactics they wouldn’t have try to convince the people to vote for them.
All the politicians would have to do is explain that they were both in agreement.
There is a way to present conservative policies that would change public opinion on Racism, the black vote, closing the border and immigration, education, abortion, government regulation, executive orders and of course the list goes on.
But I can’t expose it here for fear that the liberal progressives may adopt it first.
My only hope is that one day a politician will actually take my call.
OBAMA CARE PROBABLY WILL NOT BE DE-FUNDED – So how can that score a win?
The first offer will be to fund everything but Obama care, but instead a counter offer will be presented to suspend it for a year, and will probably be accepted by both parties in some form.
So we won’t have to worry about that for a year.
This will make it an issue for both parties favoring the conservatives.
This time can be used to present alternatives like the Tom Price Plan which the democrats have managed to freeze.
Mike Lee and Ted Cruz have forced all politicians to expose their position on this issue.
Tea Party Conservatives can now target incumbents in their primaries and cleanse the party of politicians that are progressives or have become progressives. Don’t you wish some of these dinosaurs would just go home?
Mike Lee and Ted Cruz have shown that the general public still prefers conservative policies and will vote for pure conservatives when they know whom they are.
When people understand that Obama Care can be eliminated when the Republicans have the majority, people will vote for them
So “be happy, don’t worry”, de-fund it or not — WE WIN.
