Even if the country is a mess. This includes the primary season also.
Well, the Republican party should consider running a small government conservative, then.
I’m thinking we should start fundraising for a third party candidate or at least a really conservative Republican candidate right now.
I like the idea of having a series of 3 or 4 nationwide single day runoff races and 90 days at the end to campaign for the general election.
I also think candidates should debate the opposition party some during the primaries so we can really see who can hold their own before we’re saddled with a pathetic candidate.
Screw it. No politician is worth anywhere near that. Give my money as a campaign contribution? No way. They take enough of my money.
It will also help to be likeable...
It's like immigration laws... it's more fun to make new laws rather than enforce existing ones.
I have been thinking about the since the elections, and the outrageous amounts Comrade Stalin raised in these elections, a lot of it from Palestinian and other terrorist sources.
What Gov Plain needs to do, is set up a PAC after a respectable interval, with a a well organized well run fund raising committee, and set in motion the mechanism to go toe to toe with Obambi in 2012 in raising money.
Lets face it, most of us wee not prepared to give even a penny to McPain, untill Gov Palin joined the ticket. McCain had spent too much time trashing conservatives, for conservatives to waste their hard earned money on this guy.
As we do the post mortem on why we got our butts kicked in this election, campaign fundraising should be scrutinized in great detail. We need to come up with a way to convince the poor and middle-class to support our agenda and send in checks - even if it’s only a measely $100 at a time. We’re not good at that and the Dems are, sad to say. And we aren’t going to be able to sell our agenda to the poor and middle-class unless we dress it up better than we did this time!
So the common folk need not apply for a shot at the Presidency? We wouldn’t have had Abe Lincoln as President if he were living in this day and age. Sad.
She's the only one in the party that has a shot at raising this kind of money IMO.
She needs to start planning now.
