Learn how to sell and you will learn how to be persuasive in political discussions. For an excellent example of brilliant selling, watch Carly Fiorina’s speech at the SBA List meeting. She sells the pro-life movement in a way that we all need to learn.
When you’re working to convert someone, they are not your opponent, they are your future ally, so think of them as a salesman would think of a future customer. You want to pull them over to your side, agree with them, make them agree with you, and then assume the close. Carly does this beautifully.
Do you agree with that? Nobody agrees with that! Even people who think they’re pro-choice don’t agree with that.
Then we discuss a few alarming tactics of the left – the horrific John Doe investigations in Wisconsin, and the media’s effective and easy to miss tactic of controversializing the right.
Learn the tactics of you opponent, and learn them well, so that you can defend against them.

Join the weekly discussion about solving conservative messaging problems
A collaborative project of Free Radical Network, The Party of Choice, and The Conservative Union. Members of each group come together to discuss messaging successes, failures, and strategies in an effort to make ourselves, and the movement as a whole, better at selling Liberty.
“Because if we can’t sell Liberty, we suck; but if we can’t learn how to sell Liberty, we are defeated”
