Maybe we should alter our tactics a bit...Submitted by silk30 on Thu, 09/26/2013 - 11:51
It is my understanding that for a good number of people who come to the DP and utilize the information at hand, they see everything going on in the U.S as "Liberty vs. Tyranny." I mean once you boil everything down and condense all of the issues and arguments, the foundation of our fight is Liberty vs. Tyranny.
Rather than encourage people to endorse and vote for candidates like Ron Paul, maybe just keep politics completely out of it when trying to create a convert?
Let's encourage people to research the history (and make it clear that establishment sources are not going to reflect the truth in any meaningful way) of money, banks/banksters, and the deaths/murders/rapes/pillaging caused by governments in collusion with banks and other special interests.
If we can get people just to do a little digging and point them in the right direction for their sources, (Mises/Hayek/Rothbard etc.) more than likely they will end up following a path that leads them to candidates like Ron Paul.
I doubt this is an original idea and if there have already been posts about this, my apologies. I think leaving politics out of it is the route I'm going to take from here on out.
