If the Establishment want to pretend there is a

left/right paradigm when both candidates and parties are Corporatists, we should try and use their own weight against them - that is what several of the martial arts do.

If they say they occupy the left and the right - there is only one position remaining - the center.

The Republicans say the Dems are communists.
The Dems say the Republicans are religious bigots and only support the 1%.
Both say the other party are extremists, both are correct - why disagree with them?
There is only one position remaining - being moderate.

Large numbers of the young think both main parties are extremist because of their warmongering. We are the voice of a moderate Foreign Policy - as per Jefferson.

The young also consider both parties extremist because of their support for the prohibition of drugs and the crackdown on harmless non violent drug users.

The Founders would certainly call us moderate and the 2 main parties extremist.

We need to go for the Independent vote and they consider themselves to be the center and moderates.
I don't mind going with that if it puts us in a better position to persuade.

We should mix that up with the fact that we are anti Corporatism, crony capitalism etc. But it is difficult to convey that message in 30 seconds, most people do not even know what that means.

So we have to grab their attention with something simpler to understand first and make it directly target "what's in it for me if I support you".
More wealth and prosperity for the vast majority of people is what's in it for them.

Being anti Corporatism is also being moderate. There are not too many supporters of Hitler or Mussolini in the United States.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."
