You have heard it said, you need the Independent voter in order to win elections.  fact or fiction ?   

INDEPENDENT, What does this really mean?  Independent voters do not vote based upon principles but the mood of the electorate. Kinda like voting for the winning team, as long as they are winning.  We all know people like this in life and business.

Independents do not join a cause until they believe they are on the winning side.  This is why they can not be persuaded directly, but must be persuaded indirectly by igniting the Conservative "Team"...  Then the Independents will follow.

BY THE NUMBERS,  If we look strictly at the number of voters and voter turnout. In most elections Conservatives just need to get their side motivated to show up to the polls. Conservatives can win and not just once but keep winning election after election, until Conservative values and principles dominate the elected bodies.

EXAMPLE,  In the recent election in the 36th Congressional District, There were 38,624 votes for the Conservative Craig Huey, but there were 95,758 registered Republicans. The liberal received 42,000 votes so clearly the Conservatives could have won this election with their numbers. In the last general election the Republican turnout was 66,706 votes.  As you can see Republicans can win by the numbers but they must get their voters to the polls and the Independents will follow.

TIME AND RESOURCES;  With a limited amount of time and resources, conservatives should spend their energy connecting to their like minded voter and getting them to the polls. 

The only thing that matters on election day is which side get's the most votes.

As we continue to hear the headlines from the media, including the conservative channels "Debt ceiling increase needed to keep government operating".  This situation is being looked at from the wrong premise, a premise that we need to raise the debt ceiling to keep the government from defaulting.

THE TRUTH,  For at least 75 years, we the people have allowed the government to spend more than they were taking in, we have balanced our budgets throughout the years by taking the money from social security and in return giving social security IOU's.  Now that social security is spending more than it takes in, the borrowed money to balance all those years of budgets is owed to social security, sorry folks the money is gone.

THE SOLUTION, The only remedy to our current financial condition is to reduce the size of the federal government, by returning back to the citizens the responsibiltiy to provide for themselves the necessities of life.  Prior to our change in thinking as a country, we were able to take care of the needs of our neighbors who had real needs, we helped friends and family get through dificult times and helped them get back on their feet, we did not allow them to become dependent when they could help themselves...

With July 4th coming, as we are celebrating the memory of obtaining independence from Britian, we must also reflect upon what Freedom is.  It is our right to be the ruler of our own life, our own liberty and our own property. We need to declare independence once again and that is by not depending upon the government or others to do for us what we should be doing for ourselves.  If you claim to love liberty, then declare independence by refusing government assistance in any form, because this is the only way we can remove the chains of bondage.
