The Real Nature of Politics

The mission of Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) is to train, educate, and mobilize youth activists committed to "winning on principle."

A key part of that goal is YAL's Winning on Principle Newsletter, designed to clearly articulate effective strategies, tactics, and ideas which liberty activists can use on campus or in campaign work to win with our principled message.

Here's the latest - and most controversial - issue to date, written by veteran political strategist Mike Rothfeld. To receive this newsletter in your inbox, join YAL today.

You have to come up with good debating lines

Especially ones to counter arguments like "do we really want to go back to a period of where only white landholding men were allowed to vote". Hillary Clinton is known for this type of argument. You have to respond to this and be sharp and on point or else the soundbite favors them. say something like "yes, I want to fight for all Americans to end bad taxation as we did in the revolution and it seems we've spent the past 200 years "going backwards" in the loss of freedom, we now owe anywhere from 20 to 45% to the government after income taxes and sales taxes" get into facts and figures and just make a good point that resonates with all voters. Taxes will. Freedom will. The idea that we dont even own our own income certainly will. and it will end up making them look bad instead of you.

Bottom line is politics is driven by sound bite fear issues!!

Bottom line, is unless you can get a politician to fear you - then you aren't doing your job. They will weasel their way every which way from Sunday in order to drown out your voice.

For instance, the politician might be some globalist lick-spittle like Mitt Romney or HW Bush. He might claim to be for "property rights", but all the same has voted against property rights and privacy their entire career.

Verdict? They have never been for property rights. It's also very embarrassing that they got elected to office by YOU the voters, based on nothing but lies to get elected.

I openly carry a weapon to political rallies, period. Why? It's in the 2nd amendment and 1st amendment. I'm no dummy. It states this right directly in the constitution. If we lose one right we lose them all.

In the case of self-defense, I have openly used the taser rifle before. And quite proudly put someone in line for crossing that boundary.

Typically, this puts every type of politician in a state of FEAR. Fear of their own constituents, fear of YOU finding out what they've been doing. And since many politicians are total gutless sellouts, this is only a VERY good thing.

So thus and matter of factly, politicians will attempt to silence you through bribery or use of private security police or other crap. Now that they know you've read the constitution, they are RIGHTLY afraid.

This keeps most of the most despicable politicians watching behind their back whenever they move forward with another vile Rockefeller plot. And that's exactly where you want them.

Sure, they will pay lip service to the "constitution" but unless most of these hacks are actual statesman who have read the constitution then they're not going to care. Especially if you are lazily ignoring them.

And they will carry on with an unconstitutional set of laws, sometimes without even knowing it. But here's the good news: If you have politicians fear you, they will do ANYTHING you ask.....and I mean they will literally bend over backwards!

A part of getting the "sound bite" era fear into politicians, is attacking them at every opportunity for completely treasonous actions. Threaten them with a Grand Jury. Many politicians, by their own citizens, have been convicted in Grand Jury courts for massive treason across the board.


A State Grand Jury overrides the powers of a corrupt politician, or any Judge whom they support automatically. A Grand Jury has VETO power over the most powerful elected officials in government.

Use it and eradicate criminals from office.

This most of the time makes sure the politicians fear just really everything about you, which is exactly where you need them to be in order to have MEANINGFUL change.

Politicians are known as being gangsters. If a corrupt cop or the mob was bad, Politicians are the mafia Don Corlone at the top of the food chain. In general, politics is just full of fronting crime.

Why? Because politicians, once elected, are busy trying to balance all the corporations/unions and foreign governments that are busy trying to buy their support. They no longer have "time" for you, unless they fear you and your supporters greatly.

Of course, this isn't true for statesmen.

Statesmen like Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich Sr. will always make time for you no matter what. They have integrity and DESPISE wedge issues. So you can always count on statesmen to do what's right.

With politicians, that is a random and rare thing. Once politicians greatly fear you, you can also get your legislation past their desk. On top of this, you can fire their ass by just changing the minds of about 100 others in their electorate. That is your TRUMP CARD.

After all, at every opportunity a politician sees; they might try to introduce bad legislation so they can receive that 50 million dollar grant from a corporate non-profit. All they will try to do, is pass it when you aren't looking.

So make sure their electorate KNOWS what that politician is voting for/supporting. Its your TRUMP CARD. Use it wisely. As an armed citizen and/or militia member, politicians may even look over their shoulder to make sure "you guys" aren't following them. And that is EXACTLY where you want them. That's the sign of a REPUBLIC, a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC in action.

As long as you don't let them get away with lying to you.

FDR promised balanced budgets and reduced government spending. Reagan promised largely the same. George Bush promised a "humble foreign policy". We see how much THESE worked out.

Or, in the words of Gandhi

"I WOULD risk violence a thousand times rather than risk the emasculation of a whole race. (YI, 4-8-1920, p5)

I do believe that, where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence....I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honour than that she should, in a cowardly manner, become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonour.

But I believe that nonviolence is infinitely superior to violence, forgiveness is more manly than punishment. Forgiveness adorns a soldier...But abstinence is forgiveness only when there is the power to punish; it is meaningless when it pretends to proceed from a helpless creature....

But I do not believe India to be helpless....I do not believe myself to be a helpless creature....Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. (YI, 11-8-1920, p3)


We do want to drive out the best in the man, but we do not want on that account to emasculate him. And in the process of finding his own status, the beast in him is bound now and again to put up his ugly appearance. (YI, 15-12-1921, p419)


The world is not entirely governed by logic. Life itself involves some kind of violence and we have to choose the path of least violence. (H, 28-9-1934, p259)"
