The Real Nature of Politics: Part1

America’s political system works. Period.

Gasp! Shock! Horror! (I can see the hate mail coming already).

But don’t get me wrong, I’m not necessarily in favor of the American political process, certainly not as any sort of end. What I am saying, though, is that the person with the best strategy, the best campaign, and the most votes wins.

That, in and of itself, is generally remarkable compared to societies all over the world, and without-doubt veritably-so in often inhumane human history. Right or wrong, the best person wins from a strategic standpoint. It’s time we start winning too.

I’m a small business owner – if some politicians decide to tax me even further, I am powerless to stop them if I have no political power. Even if I “educate” my colleagues, the fact of the matter is that as long as the law exists on the books, I will go to jail if I do not pay them. This constant struggle for liberty, though, deserves a much more extensive and articulate explanation than I give.

Mike Rothfeld’s explanation was the hardest lesson I’ve learned thus far in life, but it has also been the most important. The political process wins if we don’t stop it.

You may disagree with Mike ideologically but, strategically, he is right and this movement will fail if we do not heed his words and act accordingly.
