You Can't End Corruption Using Corrupt People's Rules

I have a lot of friends who believe in "party infiltration". And I have so much respect for ANYBODY who is willing to step up in ANY capacity to make a difference. But, in my opinion, there is no way that true liberty and the freedom to dissent will be successful in a party system that strong-arms candidates based on the money they raise and the money the party can then use to buy influence.

And then, be able to use that influence to extort from businesses, industries, and even countries - more wealth, resources, and power - that can be used to destroy the individual liberties and natural rights of Americans - and all humans. It is a game of extortion, and both the Republican and Democratic parties play that game well.

There are thousands of examples of this, and that is why I have chosen the path less traveled - that of running outside of any party. Not that this is the right path, but it is the one that I, personally, feel most justified and vindicated in traveling. You may be aware of the concept that there are millions of apathetic Americans who don't want to participate in our corrupt two-party system. My belief is that there can be leaders out in the communities where we live that give these dissenting voices of frustration a place to cast their vote.

These are the silent numbers of people who don't post their likes and dislikes via social media, they don't speak up at meetings, they don't attend political rallies - but they are there, and I believe that they are willing to draw their line in the sand when it comes time to stand up against the oppressive forces of the extortion tactics used by political parties and people we hesitantly call "representatives" in the House and Senate. This includes the near-blind support of Homeland Security's infiltration of our local police forces, the building of containment camps throughout the United States, and extremely destructive erosion of American's privacy. These are the oppressive forces NOT being spoken against by either party.

Corruption does not lend itself to rule-following. I have witnessed this for four years in Colorado's third congressional district where many a good men think they can run Republican and get the blessing of a party that claims to be constitutional and conservative. Unfortunately, you can't play by the rules and expect to win when the people making the rules are the problem.

We can win if we focus on winning people over.

If we had a large enough amount of people in America and the world united behind our shared principles, and demanded strict adherence to said principles over politics or parties,then the politicians would truly have to represent us or find themselves out of a job and irrelevant.

We can make progress every single day if we focus on winning hearts and minds. Here is a suggestion on how to do it: We get one or two great short ads/videos that promote our shared values of truth, freedom, and peace. Just picture a short video explaining why we should bring our troops home, have sound money, cut taxes and spending, balance the budget, end the drug war and give power to the individual while promoting the golden rule,the non-aggression principle and voluntary humanitarian help to our fellow man.

Then we have a money bomb only to DIRECTLY purchase airtime for said ad/video. We vote with our dollars on which video is best.Then we have a "time bomb"(lol) where we all donate our time and focus our efforts spreading the video on facebook, twitter, youtube etc. Keeping it front page on the DP would surely help. Imagine if for a period of time, let's say a month, the front page of Daily Paul was dedicated to an effort to spread a video that promoted all the principles we share. The video could also include a link or mention of DP and/or a dedicated website sending new people there to join in the effort. Then we fine tune our efforts to make sure we are winning people over. And as long as we see it is working, we NEVER stop.

While commercials for politicians become obsolete,the principles of truth,freedom,peace,non-aggression and goodwill will NOT become obsolete.I do not think a reasonable person would argue against the statement that the more people we have united behind these principles,the better.Therefore,does this idea not make sense?

With the "time bomb" method, we could make our message go viral on the internet, nationwide and worldwide, without asking people for money. With the right videos and a united effort by us, I am convinced this would work. In my opinion, this is how we win.

Anyone got a better idea? I'm all ears.

I think people should try

all avenues, which is why I like the "have fun" advice. In volatile environments, unexpected things can happen, like the Cantor defeat.
