Rider University College Republicans
The death of Republicanism, Part 1: the battlefield
AuthorCharles Measley Posted on DateFriday, January 25, 2013 at 1:06PM

When looking at politics I view it as if I’m staring at a battlefield or a chessboard: I ponder, “Where are the best places to move, position, and to attack?” Sometimes positioning your forces is the most critical move for a long-term victory. Strategically aligning forces in key places will not lead to a rapid victory, but it will ensure enduring long-term success. Sadly that’s exactly what the left has done.

Every time a Republican candidate steps out on the political battlefield, they are almost instantly placed at a disadvantage. Over the last few years, the left has positioned people with their mindset in the media, whether it’s a local paper like The Asbury Park Press or a national affiliate like ABC News. Through traditional media, the left focuses on a negative narrative towards the Republican candidate while allowing the Democrat to proceed worry free.

This forces the Republican candidate to spend more time and money on paid media and door-to-door efforts compared to the Democrat opponent. This allows the Democrats to focus on a more long-term strategy within each campaign, such as voter registration. Over one election this doesn’t make much of a difference to the voter rolls but over time it produces voter rolls like we have here in New Jersey. Also it has a long-term effect of slowly bleeding out the financial resources of the Republican Party and their donors.

If strategically positioning their forces in the media wasn’t bad enough, the left has also been focusing on an even longer term strategy than that of the media: the education system.

This long-term strategy is just beginning to show its effects on the voting electorate and on society as a whole; particularly since the creation of the Department of Education in the 1970s. Those in the education system are overwhelmingly to the left and when you move to administration roles or the higher education system they are progressively to the far left.

Your children’s and grandchildren’s minds are being shaped to view the world from the left’s perspective. Not only are children being taught to view the world from their perspective, but they are also being dumbed down, which in turn will make them more dependent upon the welfare state the left has set up. This welfare state is used as a modern-day slavery to keep the recipients faithful to their Democrat masters.

By positioning their people in the key roles of the media and education system, the left has created the perfect environment in which to wage a political war for the total and utter control of this nation. Their mission is nothing short of trying to bring about a so-called “Socialist Utopia.” And the scary part is: they are winning!
Last week I outlined how the Democrats have been implementing a long-term strategy of positioning their people into key places of influence such as the media and the education system. But in that sentence lies the main differences between the two philosophies of winning; to Democrats it’s an endurance race, when to Republicans it’s a sprint. Republicans view the battlefield as individual election cycles, whereas Democrats view it as a long-term endurance race, constantly campaigning and building a sustainable infrastructure to dominate elections in the long term. Part 2

Earlier this morning Breitbart had a piece outlining this perfectly. Obama’s donors will be financing a long-term project called Organizing For Action, which will focus on supporting the President’s long-term agenda. Also the President converted his campaign into a 501(c)4 organization called Organizing For America (which means they don’t have to disclose donor information). What long-term organizations did the Republican Party set up after our embarrassing loss in November? That’s right none!

This problem isn’t just with our party, but with our candidates as well. The Democrats are constantly building and molding their candidates. How many years has Frank Pallone been preparing to run for U.S. Senate? Seven years! After failing to get his parties nomination back in 2006 he has been preparing himself and his campaign to battle it out for Frank Lautenberg seat (once Lautenberg’s cold dead fingers are pried from his Senate seat). Pallone has been campaigning at full steam since 2010. He doesn’t take breaks between election cycles, he goes at it putting in 100%. Look over his FEC reports and you’ll see he’s constantly building his fundraising base and campaign structure.

NJ Republicans have known this battle was coming and now it is here in the 2014 race for the United States Senate. But who are the frontrunners on the Republican side? No one! The Republican Party needs to focus on the long-term race by building key infrastructure to win elections not just for this years cycle, but for years to come. We need to build up candidates well in advance if we expect to win Democrat held seats.

I don’t say these things because I dislike the party or party leadership, but because I love this party. I love the principles and beliefs that we stand for! I want to see us succeed and not just to win elections, but rather dominate them!
