Strategy is the boss

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.

Ending of an era, changing of tactics

A little personal venting.
Sometimes I just take a news story or current event and go off of that. Its not that there is a dramatic lack of supply anymore, it is just that it seems monotonous at times.

We well proved how stupid liberals are, even if they aren’t done making their case.

So that is why I’ve been easing off, certainly not for a lack of ammunition. It’s a daily thing with Liberals, where one day they will surpass the idiocy of what they did the day before. It is hard to keep up. What do you want, they are evolving?

Some take to chronicling the Liberals’ bobs and weaves very seriously. But sooner or later you look back and wonder if you are getting anywhere? What’s the point, just reminding people all the places they’ve been and the ugly path they are on? It really is simple though and they supply plenty of motivation.

And some of us may appear obsessed  with keeping track of Obama’s lies and his un-American agenda. It may seem like obsession but what should we call Obama’s agenda? Now that is a real obsession if anyone has one.

But it does tend to get boring if not predictable. Then there is exposing what the Right is doing that often falls short of responding to Liberals. There’s a task to keep up with. I saw a few interesting books out( one by Ben Shapiro) claiming the civility is totally absent with the left. I do agree. And they assert that, because of the lack of civility on the left, it is time to step up and respond to their blatant lunacy in kind. I almost agree, sort of. I’ve been doing that for years. Step it up to what? Namecalling, screaming, boycotts or protests?

But just to say we are now going to leave civil discussion behind because there is no civility with the left kind of gets my dander up. That is not the reason to abandon civility for scorched earth. I have nothing aginst scorched earth either. But the point was never just to be civil for civility sake. In fact, I’m not sure what the right’s entire point was till now?

Yes, Martha, there was a time when many conservatives naively thought they would convince, convert, or convict the left with the better reasoned argument. As TV’s Dr Phil says, “how’s that working out for ya?” It never did work. The dorbell rings and no one is home. The more civil the right tried to be, the more irrational and unhinged the left became. They don’t care. It was like a cat and mouse game anyway. Only those who “believed” in that illusion played the game. That got old somewhere around Clinton’s impeachment. The left fnally proved playing handball on a curb was even beyond their mentality when Bush came along. That was almost made to order for leftists’ Alinsky tactics.

So what to do? Well, I’m not recommending or changing my style based on anything the left is doing. That would sort of be pointless. They bob and weave so much its like getting hypnotized by a bobble head doll. Next you’d be buying tickets to the flea circus. The Right is right and the Left is, well, wrong. Changing the chairs on the Titanic does not change the truth.

Why bother saying it’s all out warfare now? It was always that to libs even when they are having success. That’s what Alinkyism is all about. But why the right has to make gestures about stepping up their arguments is beyond me. It suggests they weren’t doing all they could before. (and they weren’t) They merely thought the appearance of well-mannered discussion was enough to win the day. It didn’t; if the last two elections proved nothing else they proved that. It was always about survival – now more than ever.

Still it is time for some adjustments. I’m thinking of a few rules of the road. One of them would  be to take a liberal seriously for what they say most of the time, especially during their emotional fits. They have moments of revealing their agenda. They may be as wrong and dumb as you think but that doesn’t guarantee they are losing, or will. Second, don’t expect that the majority of voters see the fallacy of the left. They don’t, so don’t be deceived. Don’t believe voters are smart enough to avoid doing stupid things. They aren’t.

Don’t mistakenly think the people will see a reasoned argument and agree with you. People are disagreeable, sometimes for the sake of it. Don’t think the truth always wins the day. It doesn’t. Once people are caught in a lie it often takes them a lot of digging to see daylight again. And finally, don’t take a liberal’s word for anything, ever. They live to defy reality.

Above all, never fall for their stupid ploys about how they actually can agree with much of what you say. They don’t, they lie. Don’t fall for the “can’t we all get along” schtick. That went out the window in the 70’s. They have zero interest in getting along. They only want to control as much of you as they can, period…ain’t no “getting along” about it. Now I’m having fun. I could go on here, probably indefinitely, but I need to stop now.

Like I said, it is a task to keep up with their bobbing and weaving. The point would be not to alter your response just due to their tactics or stupidity, it doesn’t help anyone. Conservatives, stop drinking the Kool Aid and thinking that if you only appeal to liberals’ better senses you will succeed. They have no better senses; that’s a fool’s errand. I have a gut feeling I only scratched the surface. Feel free to add your own.
