|When all else fails, change the subject to race.|
You win a fight by fighting fire with fire
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Friday strongly suggested that members of Congress are making it difficult for President Obama to raise the debt ceiling because of his race.
The race card is simply a political weapon. A weapon to frighten an enemy and excite the troops on your side.
The race card is powerful because it works. Republicans hide under their desks quivering in fear when the card is pulled.
So the question of the day is why don't Republicans also use the race card? The race card you say? How is that possible?
MARKETING: Everything in the world comes down to proper marketing. The old saying in marketing is "you cannot sell refrigerators to an Eskimo." Wrong. Modern Eskimos live in homes with refrigerators.
The message of Republican candidates can easily be adjusted to use race when it is needed.
|All is fair in the war|
Money and self-interest. Nothing motivates a person more than their wallet.
Attack is the best defense. If a Socialist is attacking using race, then attack him and his political party for taking money from corrupt campaign money from businessmen to allow a flood of illegals to steal the jobs of good and decent Black American citizens. Attack him and his party for their support of the pro-immigration groups that want to reduce Black Americans back to 2nd class status and poverty. The Democrats are racists! They want to keep you poor and dependent while favoring other groups with jobs, wealth and the American Dream.
If the Democrat sends his children to exclusive private schools to avoid have to mix with the un-washed masses in public schools that adds more fuel to the fire. It will ring strongly with voters because it has the advantage of being true.
Variations of this can be used when the Hispanic Race card is played. Always defend the jobs of Hispanic-American citizens.
In statewide elections Black Americans often vote 90% Democrat to 10% Republican. A strong and true sounding attack on this Socialist racism might drop the 90% for Democrats down to 80% or 75% or even less. By taking just a small bite out of the solid Democrat base many a close election could be decided in favor of Republicans.
Do not fear the race card. Embrace the race card.
