A message I got from Campaign for Liberty...saying that educating people will not result in change.Submitted by hbenthow on Mon, 09/24/2012 - 11:52
I got the following message from C4L in my email today:
You already know that an active citizenry is required in order to preserve and restore liberty.
But being active by itself does not guarantee you a win, and using the wrong techniques can do more harm than good.
If you are going to spend your time and treasure trying to reclaim the Republic, then let’s do it to win.
This October 14, you can learn all the inside secrets of how to win at the Capitol.
Campaign for Liberty is hosting a One-Day Grassroots Activist School with Kirk Shelley, our Senior Political Consultant.
At this school you will learn proven methods for forcing change in your legislature.
This intense training covers:
The Real Nature of Politics - why “educating” people won’t result in change
The Biggest Lie in Politics - and how the political class uses your convictions against you
How to Work Effectively at the Capitol - getting a bill sponsor and roll call vote despite the leadership
How to Build a Group - putting pressure on legislators
We are still finalizing the details for this class, but I wanted to give you advance notice of the date right away so you would be sure to save the date.
I’ll be sending you the rest of the details soon, but be sure to mark Sunday, October 14, from 9AM to 5PM on your calendar.
There is no prize for second place in politics - you owe it to your ideas and principles to learn how to win at the Capitol.

P.S. Don’t miss the chance to be a part of the solution. Our One-Day Activist School will be held on Sunday, October 14, from 9AM to 5PM in Jackson. Be sure to save the date!
One thing that struck me rather odd was the assertion that educating people will not result in change. But when I got to thinking about it, it makes some sense. Politicians don't obey the will of the people anyway, and they cheat to get their way. But then again it doesn't make sense. After all, this movement exists because Ron Paul educated us.
So what do you think about this message?
