Yet, I see no urgency from the GOP. The Grand Old Party has become the Me Too Party, with RINOs like john McCain, Mich McConnell, and John Boehner playing politics and consorting with the enemy for self aggrandizement, while they malign true patriots like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. We've got to rethink our mission and reshape our image or we will loose these upcoming critical battles – and the American people will have lost the war.
We've got to show (I didn't say convince, I said show) the American voter that we are not just another politics as usual party. We've got to approach Americans intellectually and not emotionally. And that means that we've got to forget politics and concentrate on what is best for America. The Republican Party must get back to where the people are if it is to survive – and the people are decidedly not in Washington DC.
The next two years are going to be a tipping point for America. The only question is whether it will tip back to a Constitutional republic or it will tip "forward" into a lawless and self-destructive oligarchy. In order to ensure the former – and preferred – alternative, I am suggesting some strategies for the RNC.
Be positive. Don't focus on Obamacare. Everyone knows that that's a disaster. And rubbing salt in the Democrat's wounds will only convince voters that we are as callous as the Democrats.
Focus on something that concerns every American, black, white, yellow, tan, young, old, male, and female – energy! We all drive cars, we all heat or cool our homes, we all use electric lights and coffee pots and toasters. Energy is the basis of our life style and our civilization.
We must educate voters. We've got to make sure they know that the United States has more oil under Montana and North Dakota than there is in the entire Middle East – enough oil, right here at home, to last us for at least the next 250 years. And that's just one field.
We've got to tell them that, if we were to plant the entire 400 million acres of arable land in the United States in corn and process it all into alcohol, we could run only our vehicles for less than eight months. Of course, we would all have died of starvation long before we ran out of alcohol fuel.
We've got to make them aware that coal smoke poses no known or demonstrable health hazards. I, for instance, grew up in a northern Indiana town where every home had a coal fired furnace in the basement; where every school, hospital, factory, and department store was heated by a coal fired boiler, where there were two coal fired electric generating plants within the city limits, and where every locomotive on three railroads that rolled through town belched coal smoke. And at eighty years old, my lungs are as sound as a pre-1970 dollar.
We've got to take the bull by the horns and face down Al Gore and all the other Hysteriocrats and tell the people in no uncertain terms that global warming is a lie and a scam. And we've got to back up that allegation with facts.
People are not stupid. They're just lazy. If you tell them the truth – if you make sure they have the facts – they will act intelligently.
