Going backward

For me, in business and life, it is linear. Draw a line from achieved goals at a future date backward to today, and attempt to identify the watershed moments along the way. Then analyze those and devise the key tactics along with basic time frames, to begin implementing right now. For me, I start with New Year's Day, 2018. American troops overseas are less than half what they were in 2010, with very few in harm's way in the Middle East. This happens only after foreign interventionism has fallen out of favor with policymakers. Keynesian economics is abandoned by policymakers from the legislation writers in congress to the executive office, the president’s council of economic advisers, to key pundits, etc. This happens only after laissez faire fiscal economics, and sound Austrian monetary theory is embraced. This reversing of the welfare and warfare states can only happen after… etc etc

The story continues backward to last Fall, when I began on a project that is near-complete today. The goal of the project is bringing 10 million voters toward belief in a more Constitution-sized government this year. If DPers are interested in hearing more and offering volunteer help with emails/calls, I’ll continue this thread. If not, no problem, I never self bump, I’ll continue with my small local team here.

With HR 1207, Dr. Paul laid

With HR 1207, Dr. Paul laid out a basic principle, audit the Fed, in a very short bill, and found agreement with 312 co-members. The power to bring troops home and cut domestic spending would come from electing RP clones, yes, but getting dozens more Ron Pauls in DC is not attainable this decade, maybe never. I am referring to clones of RP on every issue from detainees to abortion to the Dept of Education ---- not possible. But, getting dozens more who believe in bringing the troops home is attainable, though they may agree with RP/libertarianism/DP on that issue alone.

Most DPers are warriors, led by passion. When Jack Cafferty interviews Ron favorably last week, we get posts about whether he is a friend or foe, true blue or a puppet. Lots of commentary using words like hero, patriot, back-stabbing, scumbag. Politics is not eHarmony or Match.com. Politics is being together on a couple of basic beliefs, and not caring whether the other guy prefers cats or dogs.

Finding/funding more Ron Pauls is a worthy use of our capital, but getting enough Dems, Repubs, Independents under the small government tent is equally crucial, just listen to Ron, especially lately. He’s pounding messages of “we’re broke” and “when I speak to the young people.” He’s doing that to cast the net wider using agreement on fundamentals. Will Ron EVER bring up pot legalization or evolution or the death penalty? No, because he’s not trying to eHarmony the electorate, just trying to focus… and the opportunity for success is greater now than it has ever been in his long career.

Love that 4 people are interested and will follow up with you this weekend by private email if you want to hear more, no prob if you don't. The project is called One Sixth and it launches in 10 days. Thank you.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

Listening

I am always interested in listening. I can't promise I can or will devote effort (like everyone, I must make choices where to channel my finite energy and time) but only the foolish reject without knowledge.

At work, and often

At work, and often interrupted, but the basics for DPers begin with rechanneling energy. I don’t agree with everyone here, but I am here because DPer energy is unparalleled. If you approached coalition-building from a basic principles of HR 1207 rather than all or nothing principles, power structures would change. The country is hurting and listening more than ever. Never before have so many people believed that big government is not the answer, polls are clear. More shortly… just 2 of you are interested it appears.

Sorry I just saw this thread

Ending The Fed

This is a great and possibly the biggest one thing that we as a group could do. Right now we are too worried about conspiracy stuff and are missing a super opportunity to abolish the federal reserve.

I'm In

Hopefully we can do something positive and quit worrying about the things that divide us and focus on the goal of limited government.
