DO IT! Yes, the Democrats are going to attack you, so eat or be eaten. Republicans should not be timid about using accurate words to describe their opponents, i.e. liar, hypocrite, elitist, socialist, communist, etc. Just say it! If your opponent acts indignant at the nomenclature, explain why you said it and STAND BY IT. Yes, the liberal media will profess to be outraged over the use of such terminology, but that just gives you more air time to explain why it was said, and then get your issues out while you have their attention. Do not apologize. We need to be large and in charge, no one respects a wimp, so let’s bring out the John Wayne in us all.
2. STOP ATTACKING REPUBLICANS!
The Republican Party has a much more diverse range of ideas compared to Democrats. It seems that Democrats just all goose step in line while supporting their candidate and his or her ideas. We Republicans, not so much, as that is just not in our nature but we have to unite to win. STOP attacking your own party and START attacking the Democrats that we are running against and their Socialist agenda. Reagan was right about this one.
3. TREAT ALL OPPONENTS EQUALLY
DO NOT be intimidated by your opponent’s gender or color. Republicans do not judge people by color or gender so do not start when debating someone or pointing out their shortcomings. If you are called racist or sexist for defending yourself or your country then stand up for yourself and get louder not meeker. If you are being accused of unsubstantiated racism, you may want to ask your accuser why color seems to always come into the argument with Democrats. Ask your attacker if he or she is the racist one? DO NOT acquiesce. We seem to fight and then just stop which makes it look as if the accuser was accurate in their attack. Stay strong, stay on topic, stay defiant towards their accusations, and do not acquiesce.
4. VISIT DIVERSE NEIGHBORHOODS.
DO Visit minority neighborhoods and venues. Republicans seem to stand back and wait for Americans to figure out that we are on the side of everyone regardless of color, gender or religion. Well it is NOT happening as we stay back and these citizens are being inundated with negative information about our party from the left. We have to be on offense and take the conversation to them so that our truth can be heard. Please go visit all neighborhoods and talk to the people.
5. LEAD WITH IDEAS.
DO come up with a plan for every failing issue so that all of our lives will be improved and our children’s future will be saved! It is great to point out what is wrong with the Democrats agenda, however we have to also inspire the people to choose us. For example, stop accepting failing schools and push for a new path for educating our youth. Stop accepting a failing Social Security and educate the voter on what needs to be done to save SS. Stop being dependant on Saudi oil and instead drill at home. Stop accepting a failing healthcare plan called Obamacare and have a complete replacement ready and deliver it! Have alternative ideas.
6. OWN THE CONVERSATION
DO NOT be intimidated by Reporters or Moderators. Call them out when they are trying to work for the Democrat party. If the reporter or moderator tries to lead you in a bad direction, put words in your mouth, misrepresent you, misrepresent what Republicans stand for, misrepresent what the president has done, misrepresent what your opponent has done or misrepresent what democrats stand for, well then CALL THEM OUT! Gingrich was good at this during the last primaries. You can say; “Well sir or madam, you are a Democrat, and I know that you are trying to support your party, but thank you for giving me the opportunity to set the record straight.”
7. SIMPLY SPEAK YET SPEAK SIMPLY
DO speak in basic terminology. You must sound smart, BUT speak in basic terminology so that the voters can understand what you are talking about. Be careful when using terms like; Pork Barrel Spending, Discretionary Spending, GDP, ED, USDA, GDP, and so on, you get the picture, the voter may not. Use the correct terms and then explain what they mean, remember EDUCATE.
8. TAKE ON THE UNIONS
DO NOT be afraid to take on the Unions. We all know that unions get their power from the DNC and in return the DNC gets rewarded by the Unions. The problem with unions is so much bigger than just their relationship with the DNC. The incompetence in our government schools affects our children’s education, which affects our work force, and affects the future voting public. The unions have strong arm on business, which kills jobs and limits business potential. They forced Obamacare on us and then ask for exemptions. We could go on and on but the point is be brave; think Scott Walker.
9. HELLO REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS
DO NOT Refer to The House and Senate as “Congress”. Yes, I know it is, but people do not understand that, and the Democrats and Liberal Media have a strategy of blaming “Congress” for everything so that the Republicans in congress are voted out, while the Senate and the President are not held accountable. Please say, “The House, Senate and Whitehouse or President” when speaking of Washington (or maybe “All of Washington”). And while at it explain that The “Congress” is also the democrat run Senate; remember EDUCATE.
10. USE SOCIAL MEDIA
DO be very involved with Social Media. Very few young people watch TV news or listen to talk radio. Please get very involved with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, MySpace, etc. Make your points short and to the point as we all have short attention spans. Educate with your “tweets” about Freedom, Self Reliance, Inspired Success, Conservative Values, etc. Go on late night shows to connect with the electorate and show America just how cool Republicans really are. Remember COMMUNICATE.
