Republicans need to get organized now
Following our implosion this election cycle, are there any Republicans left? If so, we have to answer a simple question. Do we wish to remain a political party or not? If so, then I suggest we organize immediately and copy the opposition strategy and tactics. It is for sure that those who laughed when Howard Dean became DNC National Chairman are not laughing now.
First, we must forget this bipartisan drivel and do everything possible to foil the Democrats’ legislative strategy, exactly as they have done ours for the past six years. What is the use of being elected if you can’t govern?
We are certainly the poster children for a failed legislative agenda. I assure you all that Nancy Pelosi will shortly show us what it means to govern.
Second, if you can’t win at the polls, attack the winners’ leaders. Witness the Trent Lott and Tom DeLay character assassinations by the Democrats’ toadies, the media and the partisan courts, which they will sadly now retain.
Third, we must do as they do, i.e. challenge every incumbent in the country from dogcatcher to president with well- funded, viable candidates.
In my congressional district, no one, including myself, had heard of our sitting Democrat congressman’s opponent until Election Day. No wonder he lost.
Fourth, we must become a real party and run a 365-day-per-year campaign, as the Democrats do, with truly professional people , rather than our current gaggle of election-year volunteers. We should hire Dick Morris as chief strategist to the Republican National Committee. No one knows the Clinton machine better than he does.
The real sobering thought this election cycle is what will happen if the Democrats are allowed to enfranchise the millions of illegal aliens in this country, which I suspect is their ultimate aim. This will guarantee one-party rule in this nation until the end of it, or until our absorption into that darling of the Left’s new entity, the North American Union — if our enemies abroad allow us to survive that long.
