Advanced Conservative Studies
The Reagan Wing, modeled in part after GOPAC, will need a recruiting and candidate selection arm. As the mission of the Reagan Wing becomes known, some citizen-statesmen will volunteer for service. As the Reagan Wing begins to enjoy some successes even more volunteers will be forth coming. But given the number of socialists in Congress, the
Reagan Wing should be prepared to actively recruit citizen-statesmen on an ongoing basis. And while focused on Congress, the Reagan Wing should be recruiting for state and local offices as well. Committed to excellence, the candidate selection branch will choose the best possible candidates, and to the greatest extent possible, help select which weak Republicans or leftwing Democrats our candidates should target.
As neophytes seeking election, our citizen-statesmen will require training in every facet of campaigning for office, except fund raising. Our training focus will be on winning elections and defeating socialists. Research to determine what works and what doesn't, will be part of LIACS mission. Our research should be focused on every facet that could help our citizen-statesmen win office.
Education will be the most important function of LIACS and a major responsibility of the Reagan Wing as well. In the final analysis, the battle to end socialism will hinge on changing the hearts and minds of the American people. Convincing the dependent of the benefits of independence will not be a simple task. The caring will have to be convinced that there is a better way to help the less fortunate. Convincing the improperly educated of the errors in their thinking will be essential. The burdens for education can be divided into two main camps. The first should be an online library similar to a series of articles published at Financial Sense Online archived as the Reagan Renaissance. The second should be something designed to actively seek out the misinformed. Our citizen-statesmen will be at the heart of this effort. Advancing, revising and improving our arguments for The Great Debate should be the centerpiece of their campaigns. The Great Debate will have been won and the Red Shift complete when every blue state has turned red.
LIACS will have a role to play in our divide and conquer strategy and in presenting the Great Debate. The real world of politics is dominated by our two major parties. The Republican Party is geared to protecting incumbents instead of promoting the principles upon which the country was founded. And it is principles, not politicians, that made the country great. Reordering the priorities of the Republican Party is not the goal of incumbents who control the party. It is important to understand the importance of keeping the funding for the Reagan Wing completely independent and separate from the Republican Party. This funding will be used in the primaries to help our citizen-statesmen defeat "professional" politicians within the Republican Party. And during election campaigns, the Reagan Wing expects the Republican Party to pool its resources to help our citizen-statesmen defeat Democrats.
The last, but certainly not the least arrow in our quiver borrows a page from Newt and the lessons learned in the 1994 elections, We the people, can add leverage for our citizen-statesmen to keep both parties moving to the right with a series of Contracts with Congress. Appealing to the basest of human emotions, Democrats believe "all politics is local". One of the successes of the Contract with America was the nationalizing of individual House races by appealing to the electorate to put the common good of our national interest ahead of the personal greed of local pork. The abandonment of this principle was a factor in the 2006 Republican losses. One of LIACS major functions will be learning how to utilize this to our best possible advantage in our Contracts with Congress.
While there are any number of functions like coordination and coalition building with other conservative groups and conservative third parties that could fall under LIACS purview, there is one other major function that should logically be housed here. Putting all of our eggs in the electoral basket when legal remedies could still be on the table seems ill-advised. LIACS should have a legal arm as one of its priority missions. Socialism is plainly unconstitutional because of the Constitutional prohibition of involuntary servitude. If through some perversion of law or morality socialism is or continues to be construed as falling within the Constitution, then any ambiguity must be removed. Federal judges that believe the Constitution requires interpretation must also be removed from the bench for violation of their duty and their oath. The Constitution does not require interpretation; it only requires enforcement. With a family tree filled with attorneys, Rush and David Limbaugh undoubtedly already know people that can quickly take the lead on this front.
What is the agenda that almost all conservatives are willing to support, at least in part?
Paradoxically, our small group has identified the fewer than ten things that need to be done that would allow the United States to blossom in an American Renaissance that could quickly become global resulting in the longest and best period of peace and prosperity in the history of the world.
These are not state secrets. They have been known for centuries and were developed by history's finest minds. For the benefit of the"doubting Thomases", these claims have already been confirmed by a panel of Reliable Experts.
There is almost no risk that this plan could fail. The real risk is that it is not going to be tried. Why would the solution to everybody's problems not be tried?
What can Freepers and Free Republic do to ensure this plan is tried and successfully implemented?
If it is tried, this plan will work:
