On the heals of the Right opening an extra large can of whup-ass on the Unions and Progressives in Wisconsin Tuesday night by out-maneuvering and out-organizing the Community Organizers on the Left, now comes word that the preeminent mother of all organizer training gatherings, RightOnline – is a sellout. Well, a few tickets remain for the Friday evening happening, but the main event is packed. Tickets sales were halted. (Click here to register for the Friday June 15 ONLY event.)
The Americans for Prosperity sponsored gathering is once again a smashing success – even before it starts.
Now the really bad news for the Liberals is that this is not simply a get together to share war stories and drink, although there will be copious amounts of both, rest assured.
Nor is it mainly a gathering to hear from the amazing group of speakers like Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin and many more superbly motivating speakers, although that is a plus.
No, if we look under the hood, we find the bit that is truly devastating to Obama and the Progressive Left – the Activist Training Sessions!
These sessions are broken into 4 Tracks:
Track 1: Freedom & the Internet: The Latest Battle for Free Speech
Track 2: Preaching Beyond the Choir: Growing the Ranks in the Free Market Movement
Track 3: Social Media, Smarter: How to Rule Facebook & Twitter
Track 4: Information Activism: How Citizen Journalism is Changing the Political Landscape (Franklin Center)
In 2000, the Liberals lost a squeaker when George W. Bush bested Al Gore. After 8 years of owning the White House, the Left was evicted.
In 2004, they didn’t fare any better and there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth from the MSNBC Zombies.
And while the Right grew complacent with 2 victories in a row, the left obsessed on taking over the government and making us just like Socialist Europe.
And even Democrats can figure something out if given enough time and having ample sand kicked in their faces. And they had a good idea.
Instead of using the old ways of campaigning and getting out the vote using email, snail mail and TV, the obsessive little Wonky Weasels of Welfare turned to the internet. Social Media and online tools became an immense advantage and allowed the Democrats to make great strides in 2006 and cap off what they believed to be a fait accompli in 2008 by taking the White House and a Super Majority in both houses.
Ok. The Left had a good idea that the Right would have figured out had things been reversed.
The truth is, the Left is nowhere near as smart as they think they are, and they do have a high opinion of themselves. As some of my friends say “They were smelling themselves”.
But Conservatives? We do it better!
And to quote the great Conservative Musician and Good Ole Boy Philosopher Charlie Daniels from his song “The Devil Went Down to Georgia“:
When the devil finished, Johnny said: “Well you’re pretty good ol’ son.
“But sit down in that chair, right there, and let me show you how its done.”
And with training, motivation and through the sharing of resources, organizations like Americans for Prosperity are showing grass roots Conservatives how it’s done.
And Conservatives took Virginia and New Jersey in 2009, we took back the House and closed the gap in the Senate in 2010 and we have the White House in shambles after their disaster in Wisconsin, and many on the left know Obama’s days in the White House are numbered. And the days will be measured in months, not in years!
Governor Walker kept his seat, not because of money, but because of the skill and training provided to the grass roots activists and everyone involved in taking back the country. (Did you ever hear a Progressive credit the fact that Obama outspent McCain in 2008 as the reason for that victory?)
And Americans for Prosperity and many others are a large part of the success.
The bad news for Liberals is, we do it better than you.
And what just happened in Wisconsin was just a trial run on a small scale for what is about to happen in November.
Politics is a business. And we all know Democrats suck at business.
Look for my RightOnline posts starting next Friday, June 15, 2012. I have traded in the Laptop for a Tablet and a Blue Tooth Keyboard (for heavy posting), my SmartPhone is a Mobile Hotspot (for 2) and I have spare extra capacity batteries. My field pack is light and mobile. And I will be boots on the ground in Las Vegas in one week.
And this time, what happens in Vegas sure as hell won’t stay in Vegas.
We’re Nationwide, Bay-bee!
