Political Messaging is Selling – Sales Tactics are Appropriate

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.

Dems in Disarray: Unions, elections, MSNBC, rich leftists

Sharing the good news about unions, elections, MSNBC and Leftists. Then a bit of a downer with some bad news about conservatives in media. We close with a shocking story about roving bands of youths taking advantage of bad weather.

Remember Wisconsin? Scott Walker’s victory there over the unions meant that the public sector unions couldn’t force people to pay dues, people got to choose. Their choice is no. Surprisingly, when unions have to compete for members in the free market they kind of fail. We took some joy in that.

There’s also been dramatic failure of the Democrat Party in Louisiana, worthy of celebrating.

In the media world, super lefty “news” channel MSNBC is having some trouble attracting and retaining an audience, and they’re retooling. Which way will they go? 

Did you hear about what Patricia Arquette said at the Oscars? Pretty basic boilerplate lefty garbage – super rich woman claims to be spokesperson for downtrodden women everywhere. Ho hum. Conservatives and most of America yawned. The left is having a MELTDOWN. Her statement was a “spectacular intersectionality fail”, whatever that is.

The left is eating its own, it’s sad and also hilarious to watch.

But then there’s our side. A group who KNOWS about culture, and fighting for conservatism in that arena, has chosen to spend their time and treasure on an effort that is seriously misguided. Just a very sad waste of precious resources. We do have to call out our own when they make mistakes – because we want them to do better.

We close with a truly terrifying story about a band of wild youths, and really bad weather, and shut ins, and no school, and crazy youth taking full advantage of the cover of darkness to do something unexpected.
