Politician’s Playbook

Politician’s Playbook

Representation is every citizen’s right. That representation determined at the ballot box.

The process has been reduced to “Structured Noise”. Structured because it is based on a Politicians’ Playbook and Noise in that nothing is ever done to put forth workable long-term solutions.

Saul Alinski is an author who every citizen should become aware of. He put forth a strategy to take over governments with the doctrine of;

  • Compare “what is” to the “perfect” (even though the perfect is unattainable) –
  • “What is” will always be lacking –
  • When “What is” is removed it then can be replaced by whatever the winner wants.

Two outstanding examples;

  • In the election of 1992, candidate Bill Clinton hammered on the economy with the phrase “it is the economy stupid”. By historical standards the economy was not bad. Reviewing of the Media immediately after the election shows the economy had rebounded. Comparison of “what is” to the “perfect” created doubt in the voters mind.

Hilary Rodham Clinton, the candidate’s wife, used the teachings of Saul Alinsky as the basis for her master thesis.

  • The other example is Obama Care. The cry from the liberals, health care was Broken. This when it was one of best in the world. Broken because it was not “perfect”.
    • The insurance Companies were thieves and scrooges. Replacing the insurance companies was the rallying cry, yet once Obama Care passed, taxes raised, promises broken.
    • Who provides Obama Care, the same insurances companies only more profitable by all the new polices mandated on the citizens.

As a Community Organizer whose teaching did Barack Obama follow?- Yep Saul Alinsky!

Yeah so what. How does that explain the Politician’s Playbook?

Saul Alinsky first put his rules on paper they were for the liberals. But he must be rolling over in his grave because the conservatives have now adopted them.

With both using the same Playbook of disruption nothing is accomplished. This maybe ok for a soccer game playing to a tie but doesn’t work in governing.

I propose a phrase to be used on all politicians –“yes but what do you propose to do?” Now as one listens to the news they can listen to the comments and then put the question forward.

The rules printed here numbered 1-12 can be used while listening to politicians.

  • When one of the rules is used, say Rule #5, which Donald Trump uses often you call or yell out the number.
  • By doing this you will be using Rule #4 and
  • Hopefully we see Rule #11 working.

Rule # 1:”Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have”

Rule # 2:”Never go outside the expertise of your people”

Rule # 3:”Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.”

Rule # 4:”Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

Rule # 5:”Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

Rule # 6:”A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”

Rule # 7:”A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”

Rule # 8:”Keep the pressure on. Never let up.”

Rule # 9:”The threat is usually more terrifying than the thin itself.”

Rule # 10:”If you push a negative hard enough it will push through and become a positive”

Rule # 11:”The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”

Rule # 12:”Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it.”
