  • Stop demonizing conservatives, libertarians and Tea Party activists.
  • Stop using the talking points and straw man arguments of the Left to “position” yourselves as “nice people”…you know, unlike those “evil, extremist, wacko bird” types who like to defend the Constitution and read bills before voting on them.
  • Stop acquiescing to liberal demands.
  • Stop supporting ill-conceived and counterproductive legislative monstrosities.
  • Stop pandering to lobbyists, special interests and unprincipled bundlers.
  • Stop funding and arming people who want to kill us.
  • Stop saying you want a “big tent” while simultaneously ignoring or mocking anyone outside the Beltway.
  • Stop saying that “we the people” don’t know how DC works. We do…and it doesn’t.
  • Stop valuing your own job security more than the interests of your constituents and the nation as a whole.
  • Stop talking “at” people and start listening “to” them.
  • Stop assuming that you won’t be primaried successfully if you fail to reject, or worse, actively promote, false liberal premises.
  • Stop fearing the Left Wing media.
  • Stop playing political games with our children’s future.
  • Stop making things easy for the DNC and OFA by letting them frame the debate.
  • Stop ignoring your oaths of office.
  • Stop listening to Karl Rove…please.

If you stop doing these things, and start (proudly and compellingly) “selling” the benefits of conservatism to “the 100%”, you can expect the following outcomes:

  1. You will get less grief when you vote “the wrong way” on a specific bill.
  2. You will see less primary opposition.
  3. You will be able to focus sooner, and more effectively, on your general election opponents.
  4. You will capture the attention of conservatives and libertarians who are now either giving up on the GOP and staying home on election day or actively promoting third Party initiatives.
  5. Your grassroots donations will increase dramatically. 
  6. Your social media efforts will become more effective.
  7. You will finally understand, over time and with increasingly measurable success, that “Dem-lite” approaches are like “prevent defenses” in football.  Unless you’re up big with very little time on the clock, they only “prevent” you from winning.

    News flash: It’s the 4th quarter and you are trailing. It’s time to score some points and win some elections…and you can’t do that by joining the other team.
