Winning the Neocon Vote is POSSIBLE!Submitted by Court Rand on Tue, 09/13/2011 - 19:06
Look people the only thing we need to do to win the Republican Nomination is to win over a significant portion of the neocon vote. They unfortunately are a large part of the Republican Party. While you may shirk this off as "IMPOSSIBLE" - let me put forth some ideas and allow this idea to be considered.
Neocons are people who are terribly afraid. They are strongly influenced not by love or peace or prosperity but by the simple animal emotion of FEAR!
What Ron Paul has not won them over because he has not scared them. To get them to vote for Ron Paul they need to be scared of what would happen if they don't vote for him.
Ron Paul is making the mistake of looking week - like we are scared of Al Qaeda and being weak against terrorism. He needs obviously to turn that around.
What he should be doing is listing the threats we face here at home - and then showing how unprepared we are for them and the risk to our lives and way of life.
Its easy to come up with a list of things that scare neo cons. A dirty bomb, an EMP device, a 9.0 earthquake in LA, and the fact that Al Qaeda wants us to be vulnerable at home, that it was their plan all along to make us weak at home.
Neocons are more afraid of Iran than going bankrupt. They are more afraid of bringing the troops home than not being prepared here at home. That needs to change.
We need to show we are unprepared for these threats. Its easy to show with Hurrican Katrina that our response time resulted in many deaths. It took 3 days for them to respond and the New Orleans area was not very big. What if we had a EMP attack that covered the entire country? What if it is all of Southern California that is effected. We are definitely NOT ready and many Americans can die. No the response is not FEMA. The response in National Guard. And getting them back from Iraq is not good preparedmess.
This is what needs to be emphasized.
