Losers will continue to lose in 2024

Voting booths stand ready for use in a U.S. election.

Republicans will lose the 2024 elections for the Presidency and every other public office, if they continue to follow the Republican lexicon!

No strategy or tactics equals losers. Doing the same things over and over and expecting different results is mindless. Better yet as Einstein said doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is insanity!!!

2018, 2020, 2022 were disasters for the Republicans. We barely took back the House and Trump lost. We blew two runoff elections in Georgia, put up poor candidates in key races, especially for the Senate, and continued to do the same old things. Learning nothing and changing nothing, we will face another round of similar outcomes. On the topic of voting, mail-in, harvesting and mechanics, we are blatantly, last century (Malloch,Theodore,R).

The GOP is a joke with the RNC’s useless, nepotistic chair, Ronna McDaniel who accomplished nothing and a system that has not learned a single thing. The mainstream media trashes Republicans, we do nothing and delude ourselves that a better outcome is just around the corner. Obviously the GOP wants to keep losing because they continue to do nothing that makes any sense!

On the other hand, if Republicans actually seek victory and want to regain political power, they will immediately do these seven things. Doing all of them could shape a better result but if they are not fully financed and finely executed, fatality is guaranteed. Either we adapt and play by and shape the new rules, or we remain out of power. We have to embrace technology. It is that simple (Malloch,Theodore,R).

1.Ballots

COVID changed it all i.e. no longer in-person voting on a single day. Extend early voting, mail-in balloting, and ballot harvesting. If you want to start out 50% down on election day do nothing.

2.Candidates

Crazies, idiots, outsiders, and nobodies will not provide a win. Better candidate selection/vetting is imperative.

3.Legal Oversight

Rick Scott would not have become a Senator and Ron DeSantis would not have become Governor had Scott not prepared the legal challenge’s long before election day. Legally challenge early and everything and fight tooth and nail for the entirety with ruthless attorneys.

4.Social Media

This is the single most important item in politics to date. Republicans have no concept on what to do with this lack of real estate in cyberspace.  They have no concept on how important it is and need to come into the 21st century. On-line presence is omnipotent!!! Messaging, engagement, disinformation rebuttal are but a few vital areas that Republicans are sorely lacking.

5.Financing

Contributions are the most common source of campaign support. A contribution is anything of value given, loaned or advanced to influence an election. United States House and Senate candidates running in the 2020 election cycle reported raising $4 billion and spending $3.8 billion between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2020.. Candidates for political office raise money to fund their campaigns and to demonstrate the breadth of their support. Campaign finance laws—which dictate who can contribute to a campaign, how much they can contribute, and how those contributions must be reported—vary at the state and federal levels. In general, campaigns may raise funds from individuals, political party committees, and political action committees (PACs).

Corporations, labor organizations, and membership groups cannot contribute directly to federal campaigns. However, they can influence federal elections by creating political action committees, better known as PACs. These committees solicit donations from members and associates in order to make campaign contributions or fund campaign activities, such as advertising. Funds raised and spent by PACs are subject to federal limits.  Like traditional PACs, super PACs, or independent expenditure-only political committees, raise money to influence federal elections through advertising and other efforts. Unlike traditional, PACs, super PACs cannot directly contribute to or coordinate with campaigns and candidates. However, donations to super PACs are not subject to federal limits.  Politicians can also create political action committees, called leadership PACs. Separate from a candidate’s official campaign committee, leadership PACs are often used to contribute funds to political allies.

How are they deploying super PACs to the best purposes? There is little coordination and a lack of vision and focus on the Right side of the spectrum. This must be fixed. We need to stop fighting each other and realize how the Left activates and finances itself ((Malloch,Theodore,R).

6.Op Research

Yellow journalism and muck raking have been around since Tammany Hall! Using dirt to defeat an opponent is all part of the blood sport known as politics. Negative campaigning works and like the battle cry “Remember the Maine” I say “Remember the Clinton’s!!!”

7.Unity

The Republican party is a fractured fairy tale with gaggles of self centered, personal agenda driver, power crazed, singular persons. Obviously, they don’t remember the Eleventh Commandment which was a phrase used by President of the United States Ronald Reagan during his 1966 campaign for Governor of California. The Commandment reads: Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican. Ergo, win in unison or lose in discord.
