Put the Tact in "Tactical"

Just a reminder to reach out and introduce yourselves to the old-timers, many of whom could be supportive for various reasons from habit to genuine patriotism or belief.

Don't do anything to disrespect them, and go to them for advice on internal party issues and practices (how to do things), whether you take that advice or not.

Too often, I've seen people provoke unnecessary war with their prospective allies.

Assuming the "take-over" group skews younger, it's much better to enlist your elders and get them to see you as their adult children (with pride and love) than to act like a gang of hooligans moving in. Then, even if their views are different, they won't resort to desperate measures to oppose you.

What do you think?
