Advice for GOP: Don’t change
your message; change the map

Daily Inter Lake [Kalispell MT], by Frank Miele

Winning the presidency isn’t about who you nominate, but about who votes —and most importantly about where they live.[SNIP]The truth is that people can restore our nation to its founding principles and they can do so without leaving their country—all they need to do is leave their state! Put another way:To change the future, change your demographics.If the Republican Party, for instance, could encourage 50,000 reliable Republican voters to move to Ohio over the next four years, they could probably compete in that crucial state in 2016.Likewise Florida.Likewise Colorado.That is the short-term solution.It sounds crazy, but it just might work.

Comments:
The author proposes an Electoral College solution that might give GOP a chance. Get Republican voters out of states where they are unwanted and unwelcome like California and boost their electoral count in states where they can make a difference. He calls it the Nonviolent Revolution of 2024.

That is what the lefties did to California way back in the late 60s and early 70s. They stole our state from us and the carpetbaggers from the East Coast have been in control ever since. But to be truthful, we´d do much better taking back big states like California. This state has the most electoral votes by a long shot. Most red state have small numbers like 4 or maybe 9 votes. CA has 55 votes!! Besides, we natives want our state back from the commies. So, if the GOP were smart, they´d help us take back California... especially now that Hollyweird is moving out faster than ever before.

I agree with #2: job 1 is getting fraud out of the voting system, as much as possible.

But! With California dhimms having a super majority, I will be leaving as soon as possible. I can either go to a state where I am the majority (Texas sounds good to me!) or to a state where I might actually make a difference.

I love my country enough to give it a shot. Are there 50,000 other like me???

Although I love Frank and enjoy his articles, this one is too far out there for me. Consider this: If 50,000 Republicans moved out of IL to OH, for example, and began voting, its possible we could turn around that one state for one or two cycles. But how do we compete with the endless flow of refugees from the inner cities & the other blue states that have wrecked their own homes, and move to red states hoping to wreck that too by voting for higher taxes and more democrats?

The GOP voters are out there, and I dare say, they do outnumber the mind-numbed robots on the left. Our #1 problem is the media narrative. Obama had 8 months to demonize Romney in OH, and there was no money or time for anyone to respond. By convention time, it was too late. We MUST regain the narrative. That IMHO, is our only chance of turning this country around.

Let´s redraw the map, with borders around the coastal leftwing cities, and then declare independence from them. If you live more than 20 miles from Lake Erie in Ohio, you probably already live in a conservative state. If you live more than 30 miles from the Pacific Coast, you already live in a conservative state. There´s no need to move, just redraw our borders and fence out the leftwing cities.

I have a better idea.
Simply drive to those states, use a Hispanic surname and vote. Evidently, that´s what the other side does.
Many areas get more voters than they have registered voters.
Also the liberals are running the voting precincts and the counting the votes. We need to get control of that area or we can never take back our country.

The Free State Project was suppose to do that. I helped with their formation. They chose New Hampshire, I chose Texas. The Republicans need to get their Black, Gay, Hispanics etc. out into the field to articulate the conservative position that has been poisoned by the Democrats. I also think that there was a fair amount of voter fraud going on this last election.

Nearly a decade late Mr. Miele. Take a look at the swing states...look at who has moved in, Dems. have been diluting Rep. Majorities in just this manner for years. NC, VA, Fla, NV, AZ. While the reliably Blue cities have a huge surplus of dependent Democrats they offer NO jobs or hope for future jobs and the young from these places move to those states that DO have jobs (or at least the HOPE of jobs). Even intrastate migration can be seen in it´s effect on Congressional seats...look at the dem. votes around colleges and "Job Corp" Locations.

Is free speech intended for everyone?

What is it about liberals that makes them so afraid of free speech, free thought and free expression of ideas, especially on college campuses? You may have heard about the absolute terror which faculty and students at Rutgers University greeted the news that former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had been chosen as the commencement speaker at this May’s graduation ceremony. [SNIP]Conservatives, meanwhile, seem to be able to cope with the idea that liberals have differing opinions without trying to burn them at the academic stake. Take, for instance, the March 7 announcement that Montana State University in Bozeman

The best show on TV last week wasn’t “The Walking Dead.” It wasn’t “Downton Abbey.” And it sure wasn’t “The Academy Awards.” [SNIP] No matter what else she has done before, or does after, former RT-America anchorwoman Liz Wahl should always be remembered and thanked for telling the truth about “the enemy within.” Wahl had spent the last two weeks feeding the Kremlin’s propaganda to her gullible American TV audience about the Ukrainian uprising and the Russian occupation of Crimea. But finally, she couldn’t ignore her conscience any longer, so she looked straight into the camera and told her Russian bosses to

You have to hand it to Nancy Pelosi: She was dead-on accurate when she claimed Congress had to pass Obamacare before we would find out what was in it. The latest case in point is the “Shared Responsibility Payment,” which appears in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but hasn’t been widely appreciated for its Orwellian genius until the IRS started to promote it this year. The “Shared Responsibility Payment” is the penalty U.S. citizens have to fork over to their federal overlords if they fail to accede to the government’s order that they purchase health insurance for themselves

Chalk one up for the good guys — well, sort of. After a week of mockery, derision, and disdain, the Federal Communications Commission has announced that it won’t put observers in newsrooms after all. FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai’s op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Feb. 10 had alerted the public to the dangers of having government representatives querying news bosses about how they decide what stories to cover — and which ones not to cover. The implicit threat of such heavy-handed research is that the government could be on the verge of announcing that IT will decide what stories are important to

Just what we needed — another item to add to the ever burgeoning file labeled “Things that can’t possibly be true in America, but are anyway.” Consider this monstrosity: Our formerly constitutional government, in the form of the Federal Communications Commission, has developed a plan to put observers in the nation’s newsrooms in order to better understand “the process by which stories are selected.” Of course, they won’t just “understand” the process; they will most assuredly and dangerously alter it, merely by the implied threat of their presence in the formerly sacrosanct newsroom.

If the Super Bowl were what the average Washington pundit thinks politics is supposed to be, then we would have spent the past two weeks reading about how the two opposing teams were looking forward to working together for the common good in today’s game. Just as we are constantly being told to yearn for an era of post-partisan compromise in D.C., our football pundits would be talking about the need for ending the heated rivalries and bringing about an era of cooperation on the field of play!

There are some things about which I can take pleasure in saying, “I told you so,” but a nuclear Iran is not one of them. I first wrote about the slow but steady progress of Iran toward becoming a nuclear power in December 2007, and then followed up in 2010. The theme of both columns was the incredible naivete of the United States in accepting the reassuring words coming from Tehran about the Islamic republic’s nuclear intentions.In 2007, I disdainfully concluded, “if global geopolitics were a television sitcom, then the government of the United States would be Boss Hogg, and

One week before the 2012 election, as it stood apparent that President Obama would easily defeat challenger Mitt Romney, I wrote a column cautioning that re-election would not insulate the Obama administration from accountability for the massacre in Benghazi two months earlier.(SNIP]This week, we got a “long-delayed” bipartisan Senate report on Benghazi, and as a measure of just how meaningless the report is, consider this: It does not even name Hillary Clinton, the Cabinet officer who was responsible for security in Benghazi and who helped shift the blame to a “spontaneous” protest over a YouTube video

Rich Scheben, on the other hand, is ready and waiting.

One of the most heart-breaking medical tragedies of recent years occurred earlier this month when a 13-year-old girl woke up from surgery for a tonsillectomy,asked for a popsicle,and then started bleeding profusely from her mouth and nose, leading to a heart attack as a result of loss of blood[SNIP] When we see trained medical professionals reacting so coldly to the pleas and needs of a family in a medical crisis,it can only remind me of the warning of Sarah Palin and others of the danger of turning our most personal life-and-death decisions over to bureaucrats and functionaries.

Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats.

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?
