Why We're NOT Gaining Ground?Submitted by Robert Timsah on Tue, 02/14/2012 - 18:26
IF YOU AGREE, COMMENT BELOW. Thanks.
Every advertisement that Paul does should center on the following issues.
GROW THE ECONOMY!
STOP POLICING THE WORLD!
SAVE SOCIAL SECURITY! (LOL, Seriously.. )
This works in several ways and will get voters across the spectrum. And yes, Paul does intend to make Social Security Solvent, though idealy he'd like to phase it out one day. The way we save social security is by CUTTING SPENDING ELSEWHERE and to STOP POLICING THE WORLD.
Why is Romney always #1 when it comes to people who's #1 issue is the economy? It's because he talks about it all the time. It's not just his experience in the private sector. He knows how to frame the issues. Now, we all know he's fake. But Paul is not fake at all. Focusing on these 4 issues is a lot better than;
END THE FED!
STOP POLICING THE WORLD! (good one..)
GOLD AND SILVER AS LEGAL TENDER!
Those are all important, no doubt, but most Americans don't understand them or how they apply to the issues that matter to them. It's my contention that Paul is not struggling to get a win because of his foreign policy. It's in how he does not frame the issues in a way that the majority will understand.
They don't know what ending the Fed means. More to the point, most probably don't care. Why go that far down the chain anyway? Ending the Fed won't happen in his lifetime unless they destroy themselves. I'm not saying he should not mention these things! He should. But his main points of attack should always be the economy, cutting spending, spuring job growth, saving social security and ending our foreign intervention. Those should always be the main points.
The key to this is if he were to get the nomination and he was up against Obama running on a platform of bringing our troops home in order to save SOCIAL SECURITY!!! LMAO I'd pay to see that. We've made promises and stolen people's income for social security so now it's an obligation. Maybe someday I'll work on a libertarian campaign of my own and do these things. I wish the Paul campaign would do this. I firmly believe with just some minor changes he could have won several states. The voters are actually desperate for an alternative and they don't see that in Paul.
WHY IS THAT? It's the message.
