A Cure For Mad Trump Disease

Mad Trump Disease has not just infected the Oval Office. It’s running rampant through the media and most of the political establishment. Insanity is the new normal. I don’t want to blow the ending of this article, so I’ll just say this: When the inmates have taken over the institution, it’s still the person with the keys who decides who locks the doors at night. Continue reading

Candidate Contracts: Why Populist Candidates Will Want to Sign the Contract

This article is meant to clear any misconceptions and dispel related fears about the candidate contract strategy.

Candidate Contracts: Weaponizing Populist Electoral Campaigns

A short time ago, I characterized the practical intent, the rubber-hits-the-road goal of the candidate contract strategy in these words: “The purpose of the candidate contract strategy is to get the good guys elected and throw the bad guys out of office.” That sums it up as succinctly as I know how. Of course, if it works, it will have far-reaching implications in terms of restoring representative democracy and establishing new higher standards for electoral integrity. But first things first. Let’s put it to work! Here’s how. Continue reading

No Contract No Vote

Our democracy is in the middle of an existential crisis. That hardly suggests we should turn to those who have been participating in, have often been instrumental in engineering the mess, to see what their latest bright ideas are. In fact, it demands some fresh blood, some fresh thinking, some fresh ideas! Thus we need to clean house in Washington DC. On the critical issues of our time, candidate contracts take the guesswork out of voting. We’ll know exactly who gets to stay and who must go. Thus the time is right for this powerful new standard for informed voter choice. Unless you have a better idea . . . Continue reading

Bird Dogging

Bird dogging has nothing to do with dogs hunting birds or birds hunting dogs. It’s basically in-person harassment, pursuit of an individual “with dogged determination”, and is commonly used against politicians who are being outed by their opponents or the media, for dramatic effect. Continue reading

Public Shaming

If our current congressman can’t step up to the plate and play their very best game for the home team, they should be shamed, booed, reviled, scorned, humiliated, burned in effigy! Let them stew in the cauldron of the bad publicity they heap on themselves, then rot in a big foul steaming pile of their own wickedness, after we haul the garbage to the dump! They have no shame of their own, so we need to bring shame to bear down on them ourselves, exposing their deceptions and treachery. Then they will be confronted with a stark choice: they either start listening to the public they now arrogantly ignore or consign themselves to oblivion. Continue reading

Mobilization Without Method Is Meaningless

If there is any doubt about my message, here it is: To mobilize people behind any cause, regardless of how worthy that cause is, regardless of how intrinsically appealing it may be to get these folks marching, singing, chanting, shouting for that cause, if there is no clear strategy which targets an equally clear and obvious outcome, with a realistic expectation that the strategy will achieve that outcome, then the mobilization is a waste of time. Some forethought, planning, disciplined and targeted activism goes much further than making a lot of noise. Continue reading
