There was a reason I mentioned the rules for radicals because they are tactics. So that brings my concern to the front.
I think most of what Trump has done has been refreshing, a welcome change. But I do have one concern. I may not understand all of Trump’s tactics, he’s been doing this long enough to lose track. I like most of it.
There is this question I have though. You have strategy and you have tactics. My question is wondering if the tactics are getting ahead of the strategy? I know Trump has active plans and a strategy, but I’m starting to see more tactics than strategy.
That is not necessarily a bad thing, though it does prompt the question.
However, when tactics supplant strategy we have a problem. When tactics don’t support an overall strategy, they can’t be that effective. I wonder if we are at that point? I don’t think it is a major problem except it is far better if all the tactics coincide with the strategy. And we know that tactics alone cannot be a strategy.
But there is a danger of reversal. That is when strategy becomes subservient to tactics. In that case the strategy loses, and certainly can’t be very effective. That is my fear.
Well, at least we don’t have to worry about those two things with Congress. They have neither a strategy nor tactics. And whatever political tactics individuals do use don’t support any kind of strategy. So the body is completely incompetent, useless and ineffective. But that’s probably why we can’t collectively oppose the left, let alone follow through on plans. Probably why we are losing even when we’re winning elections.
That brings it back to Trump. Finally we have someone with an actual plan and pretty basic strategy. But then I wonder if we are losing the strategy for the tactics and maneuvers? And a strategy should not be incoherent among team members. What team? Congress is acting as if the Dems are in charge and Republicans are an opposition party. So they haven’t got the hang of winning. That might turn into a self-fulfilling philosophy.
Because if we lose a cohesive strategy then we are a lot like Congress is already, and obviously their lack of plan is not working for us at all.
