James Arlandson provides a good list for his “How the GOP Can Dominate Politics Past 2020,” but of course the key is entering and fighting seriously in the information war. Here is Arlandson’s opeining:
This is not a futurist post. It’s about a conservative outlook today.
Here’s the problem. America swings back and forth nationally like a pendulum between the GOP and Dems. Here’s the presidency since FDR:
FDR / Truman – Ike – JFK / LBJ – Nixon / Ford – Carter – Reagan / Bush – Clinton – Bush – Obama.
It seems that America believes that one party wears her down. However, the Senate and House have mainly, but not exclusively, belonged to the Dems in all those years. So nationally, people kind of prefer the Dems over the GOP, but barely (state government is another matter).
How does the GOP stop America’s national mood swings?
I take it as a given that the right GOP nominee will barely win the White House in 2016 after election confusion.
Here are seven long-range strategies and outlooks (not detailed policies) the GOP must follow if they want to dominate the foreseeable political future.
