Meet The New Democrat Party

Former President Bill Clinton’s Democratic Convention speech includes this line: “The most important question is, what kind of country do you want to live in?” Good question! It’s hard for me to believe that the majority of Americans want to live in a country where there is no God except the State, homosexual marriage is just like heterosexual marriage, abortion is a form of birth control, and Islam is on an equal footing with America’s Christian heritage.

The majority of Americans believe in God, and yet the Democrats removed any mention of Him from their platform. It’s not that it was an oversight; it was a conscious effort since “God-given potential” was in the 2008 platform. When an attempt was made by Ted Strickland (D-OH) to reintroduce God, all hell broke loose. He was booed by delegates!

Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. The move came after criticism from Republicans. Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates objected.

Notice that the criticism didn’t come from the democrats. The democrat leadership ramrodded the new language over vociferous opposition. Keep in mind that a number of speakers mentioned God. This only goes to show that the Democrat convention is more theater than reality. The convention is designed to play to the ignorance of the voting population. They say one thing in public to get votes but do something else legislatively. Their voting public doesn’t care as long as the checks, condoms, and birth control pills keep coming.

Since every state that has voted on homosexual marriage defeated the measure — 31 states as of this writing – it’s a wonder that the Democrats see homosexual marriage as a winning issue. More than 8 percent of the delegates at the convention are homosexuals (more than 500 out and proud sexually incongruous delegates) — eight times the homosexual population in America.

Furthermore, while God was put out of the Democrat party platform, homosexual marriage was put in. The Democrats became the first major U.S. political party to endorse gay marriage, and this happened in a state where voters approved a state constitutional referendum limiting marriage to heterosexuals.

The Democrats have always been the Abortion Party. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Democrats change their party identification to “Abortionists” in the future. It’s all they can talk about. Of course, if the Democrats keep supporting pre-born child killing, there won’t be an opposition party in the future.

What’s really evil about Democrat support for abortion is how it’s affecting the black community. While 95 percent of blacks vote for
Democrats, a higher percentage of blacks get abortions. It’s been described as “black genocide.” What fools they are.

What’s not getting a lot of attention is the number of Muslim delegates at the Democrat National Convention. There are more than 100, “up from 43 Muslim and Arab-American delegates at the 2008 Democratic convention, and 25 at the 2004 convention.”.“The more than doubling of Muslim delegates at this year’s Democratic National Convention is a direct result of their hard work and grassroots organizing within the Democratic Party,’ said CAIR Government Affairs Coordinator Robert McCaw. ‘It is also a sign of the American Muslim community’s growing civic engagement and acceptance in the Democratic Party.’”

I’m not sure what kind of Muslims these are considering the Democrat Party platform’s non-support of a God and the support of homosexual marriage and abortion on demand. The only thing I can think of is that the Muslims are biding their time. I do know that Cair is a group of radical Islamists who are supportive of terrorist groups and “hope” One day that they will be running the New Democrat Party.

A large overwhelming percentage of delegates to the convention are radical Marxist/Progressives who are all about a “Big Brother”/Big Government that controls everything, including the citizens! This Big Government will work best with the elites in control of the masses; of course these fools mistakenly believe that they are the elites! If you doubt that there are many of these radical socialists in congress then prove me wrong! First I suggest you google “The Democratic Socialist Party of America” you will be shocked by the large number of democratic members of congress listed.

Finally, the smallest faction in the democratic party is the conservative and moderate members. This small group is rapidly being replaced by radicals. This is the moderate type of democrat that made up the majority of the delegates prior to President Johnson. This is the type of democrat delegate that gave us President Kennedy! This is the Democratic Party that I belonged to but I recognized quickly after President Kennedy was shot that My Democratic Party was being taken over by a nefarious new breed of democrat that had only one thing in mind and that was total control of everything.

I am so sorry that so many of my democrat friends and other people are uninformed, misinformed or just don’t care! Their only concern seems to be how to get more free crap! The abyss is waiting for us and when it gets here everyone will suffer including those that only want more free crap!

Shocking Facts About U.S. Debt

The citizens of America have all been lied to.  For decades, the leaders of both major political parties have promised us that they can fix our current system and that they can get our national debt under control.  As the 2012 election approaches, they are making all kinds of wild promises once again. It is all a giant sham because we have so much debt and they won't do what really needs to be done. The event horizon of the approaching abyss is in sight for everyone to see who really cares!

The United States has gotten into so much debt that there will be no coming back from this.  The current system is permanently broken. 35 years ago the U.S. debt was a horrific crisis that was completely and totally out of control.  If we would have dealt with it back then maybe we could have done something about it.  But now it is 15 times larger, and we are adding more than a trillion dollars to the debt every single year.  The facts that you are about to read below should set America on fire with anger.  Please share them with as many people as you can. 

What we are doing to our children and our grandchildren is absolutely shocking.  Words like “abuse”, “theft” and “crime” do not even begin to describe what we are doing to future generations.  We were the wealthiest nation on earth, but it wasn’t good enough just to squander all of our own money.  We had to squander the money of our children and our grandchildren as well.  America has been so selfish and so self-centered that it is hard to argue that we don’t deserve what is about to happen to this country.  We have stolen the future of America, and yet we strut around as if we are the smartest generation that ever walked the face of the earth. We did all of this and kicked GOD out of the equation at the same time. The Bible tells us that GOD has changed the order of things because his people had forsaken him and his commands!

All of this prosperity that we see all around us is just an illusion. It is a false prosperity that has been purchased by the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world. Did you know that if you added up all forms of debt in the United States and divided it up equally that every single family in the country would owe more than $683,000? We are a nation that is absolutely addicted to debt, and the U.S. debt crisis threatens to destroy everything that our forefathers built. Republicans and democrats alike have this addiction of spend, spend and spend.

Yes, everything may seem fine for the moment, but what do you think would happen if the federal government suddenly adopted a balanced budget? 1.3 trillion dollars a year would be sucked right out of the economy and we would be looking at an “economic readjustment” that would be mind blowing.

Enjoy this false prosperity while you can, because it is not going to last. Debt is a very cruel master, and our day of reckoning is almost here. The following are 34 shocking facts about U.S. debt that should set America on fire with anger….
#1 During fiscal year 2011, the U.S. government spent 3.7 trillion dollars but it only brought in 2.4 trillion dollars.

#2 When Ronald Reagan took office, the U.S. national debt was less than 1 trillion dollars.  Today, the U.S. national debt is over 15.2 trillion dollars.

#3 During 2011, U.S. debt surpassed 100 percent of GDP for the first time ever.

#4 Economists tell us that the monetary base “consists of coins, paper money (both as bank vault cash and as currency circulating in the public), and commercial banks’ reserves with the central bank.”  Currently the U.S. monetary base is sitting somewhere around 2.7 trillion dollars.  So if you went out and gathered all of that money up it would only make a small dent in our national debt.  But afterwards there would be no currency for anyone to use.

#5 The U.S. government spent over 454 billion dollars just on interest on the national debt during fiscal 2011.

#6 The U.S. government has total assets of 2.7 trillion dollars and has total liabilities of 17.5 trillion dollars.  The liabilities do not even count 4.7 trillion dollars of intragovernmental debt that is currently outstanding.

#7 During the Obama administration, the U.S. government has accumulated more debt than it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that Bill Clinton took office.

#8 It is being projected that the U.S. national debt will surpass 23 trillion dollars in 2015.

#9 According to the GAO, the U.S. government is facing 34 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities for social insurance programs such as Social Security and Medicare.  These are obligations that we have already committed ourselves to but that we do not have any money for.

#10 Others estimate that the unfunded liabilities of the U.S. government now total over 117 trillion dollars.

#11 According to the GAO, the ratio of debt held by the public to GDP is projected to reach 287 percent of GDP by 2086.

#12 Others are much less optimistic.  A recently revised IMF policy paper entitled “An Analysis of U.S. Fiscal and Generational Imbalances: Who Will Pay and How?” projects that U.S. government debt will rise to about 400 percent of GDP by the year 2050.

#13 The United States government is responsible for more than a third of all the government debt in the entire world.

#14 If you divide up the national debt equally among all U.S. taxpayers, each taxpayer would owe approximately $134,685.

#15 Mandatory federal spending surpassed total federal revenue for the first time ever in fiscal 2011.  That was not supposed to happen until 50 years from now.

#16 Between 2007 and 2010, U.S. GDP grew by only 4.26%, but the U.S. national debt soared by 61% during that same time period.

#17 During Barack Obama’s first two years in office, the U.S. government added more to the U.S. national debt than the first 100 U.S. Congresses combined.

#18 When you add up all spending by the federal government, state governments and local governments, it comes to 46.6% of GDP.

#19 Our nation is more addicted to government checks than ever before.  In 1980, government transfer payments accounted for just 11.7% of all income.  Today, government transfer payments account for 18.4% of all income.

#20 U.S. households are now actually receiving more money directly from the U.S. government than they are paying to the government in taxes.

#21 A staggering 48.5% of all Americans live in a household that receives some form of government benefits.  Back in 1983, that number was below 30 percent.

#22 Back in 1965, only one out of every 50 Americans was on Medicaid.  Today, one out of every 6 Americans is on Medicaid.

#23 In 1950, each retiree’s Social Security benefit was paid for by 16 U.S. workers.  According to new data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are now only 1.75 full-time private sector workers for each person that is receiving Social Security benefits in the United States.

#24 The U.S. government now says that the Medicare trust fund will run out five years faster than they were projecting just last year.

#25 Right now, spending by the federal government accounts for about 24 percent of GDP.  Back in 2001, it accounted for just 18 percent.

#26 If the U.S. government was forced to use GAAP accounting principles (like all publicly-traded corporations must), the U.S. government budget deficit would be somewhere in the neighborhood of $4 trillion to $5 trillion each and every year.

#27 If you were alive when Christ was born and you spent one million dollars very single day since that point, you still would not have spent one trillion dollars by now.  But this year alone the U.S. government is going to add more than a trillion dollars to the national debt.

#28 If right this moment you went out and started spending one dollar every single second, it would take you more than 31,000 years to spend one trillion dollars.

#29 A trillion $10 bills, if they were taped end to end, would wrap around the globe more than 380 times.  That amount of money would still not be enough to pay off the U.S. national debt.

#30 If the federal government began right at this moment to repay the U.S. national debt at a rate of one dollar per second, it would take over 470,000 years to pay off the national debt.

#31 If Bill Gates gave every penny of his fortune to the U.S. government, it would only cover the U.S. budget deficit for 15 days.

#32 According to Professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff, the U.S. is facing a “fiscal gap” of over 200 trillion dollars in the future.  The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article that he did for CNN…."The government’s total indebtedness — its fiscal gap — now stands at $211 trillion, by my arithmetic. The fiscal gap is the difference, measured in present value, between all projected future spending obligations — including our huge defense expenditures and massive entitlement programs, as well as making interest and principal payments on the official debt — and all projected future taxes".

#33 If you add up all forms of debt in the United States (government, business and consumer), it comes to more than 56 trillion dollars.  That is more than $683,000 per family.  Unfortunately, the average amount of savings per family in the U.S. is only about $4,735.

#34 The U.S. national debt is now more than 5000 times larger than it was when the Federal Reserve was created back in 1913.

But do our leaders care about statistics such as these? No. In fact, Barack Obama says that we need to raise the debt limit by another 1.2 trillion dollars.

But it is not just U.S. debt that is the problem. The European debt crisis threatens to completely unravel soon and Japan actually has the highest debt to GDP ratio in the entire industrialized world.

Sometime in 2012, a total of 7,600,000,000,000 dollars of debt must be rolled over by the G-7 nations, Brazil, Russia, India and China. That doesn’t even count new borrowing.  That number just represents old debts that are coming due that must be refinanced.

Anyone out there that insists that this debt bubble can be fixed under our current system is lying or is incompetent. A massive amount of financial pain is coming.

It is time for Americans to wake up from their television-induced comas. It is time for Americans to get very angry. Your future has been destroyed and the future of your children and grandchildren has been destroyed. You better take action while you still can.

Maybe the Inca Calendar, that is predicting something that is about to happen that will change global structure and history, is more accurate than we think! In the Bible it states that those nations that that do not believe will be destroyed! So we as a nation must consider both our financial and moral standards and make the necessary changes. And I am not referring to "Hope & Change", as defined by "Captain Zero" and the crew of the approaching train wreck!

HealthCare and Medicare

The current Health Care plan is not supported by a large majority of the American people. In fact some polls have over 60% of those contacted against this horrible plan. Because of many of the changes hidden in the plan the elderly are going to be hurt the most, since several changes are in the Medicare portion of the plan.

The head of a conservative senior citizens group says the current healthcare plan developed by liberal and moderate Senate Democrats is one of the most "cockamamie" ideas he's heard come down the pike in his 40 years in Washington. The so-called "compromise" that Senate Democrats wove together on a government health insurance plan not only allows people 55 and up to "buy in" to Medicare, but also increases the number of Americans eligible for the Medicaid entitlement program.

This is the way "Big Gov" plans to save over $500 Billion dollars. The plan is to push half of the members that are currently in Medicare over to Medicaid, which we all know is a way to get rid of a huge liability and give it to the states.

The bill also offers nonprofit health plans run by the federal Office of Personnel Management under the director , which in my opinion is a political code words for government option. Check out the Propaganda section on my web site You might also like to know that director Barry is the highest profile openly homosexual official in the Obama administration, and a staunch opponent of the Defense of Marriage Act.

Jim Martin, president of the 60 Plus Association, says the bill is an "insult on top on an insult" to current senior citizens -- and questions the practicality of the proposal. "How in the world are you going to cut $500 billion out of Medicare, add 31 million uninsured...and then all of a sudden they say, 'Here's another novel idea -- why don't we expand Medicare and Medicaid to the soon-to-be seniors, those so-called baby boomers?'" he asks. "Now how in the world are you going to add on another 15 or 20 million? There's 78 million baby boomers on the horizon." Martin says putting more people in Medicare "won't improve care for seniors, it just makes the lines longer."

Tea Party Candidates for the Senate

The 2012 Tea Party Candidates for the Senate will determine who controls Congress after the election in November! The Tea Party has made an effort to force any potential Republican in the senate to take a very hardline stance on reducing the debt, taxes, and spending. The "old Republican guard" have been put on notice that they can be replaced.

In a previous blog I asked what each conservative could do to change the course of this great nation and if your answer was to do nothing then that is what you will get because the democrats have a plan to make everyone beholden to "Big Gov". They are almost there with 49% of the population in the "giveme" state and they will vote for more and more until there is no more to give them and then chaos will begin just as it has in Europe!  

So we are back to the question "What will you be able to do?" I hope that the answer is that you will promote conservative issues with friends, family, and co-workers and make sure that they all vote. If we all get behind the Tea Party candidates then we can stop this liberal/marxist democratic party from winning and reinstate conservative values. It is up to you!

"Bane" of America

Does our president realize the strong feelings that are developing outside the beltway? Judging by his current actions I seriously doubt that he really cares. His main goal is to rally the non-working classes against the rest of us.

It reminds me of the movie plot of the current movie "The Dark Knight Rises". In this movie the evil "Bane" is trying to rally the lower class against everyone that makes money! The recent OWS radicals along with labor union thugs were trying this same tatic and our president thought that this was good! He stated that this was an outpouring of middle America in support of things that he was saying about those evil rich folks?

It seems to this observer that if America begins to burn with demonstrtions then that will allow Captain Zero and his Henchmen to enter the scene and change everything. This is the plan that he has been working on for the past several years. Watch the attached video and let me know what you think.

Confirmation bias - Why democrats ignore the facts!

confirmation bias, also called my side bias, is a tendency for democrats to favor information that confirms their preconceptions or ideas regardless of whether the information is true. As a result, democrats gather evidence and recall information from memory selectively, and interpret it in a biased way. The biases appear in particular for emotionally significant issues and for established beliefs. For example, in reading about gun control, democrats usually prefer sources that affirm their existing attitudes. They also tend to interpret ambiguous evidence as supporting their existing position. As a former democrat I saw this constantly and still see it today whenever I attempt to discuss the real world with democrats!

Biased search, analysis and/or recall have been used to explain democratic attitude polarization (when a disagreement becomes more extreme even though the different parties are exposed to the same evidence), belief perseverance (when democrats beliefs persist after the evidence for them is shown to be false), the irrational predominance effect (a stronger weighting for data encountered early in an uninformed series) and illusory correlation (in which democrats falsely perceive an association between two events or situations). If you doubt this then try to change a democrats mind in an area presented by the leadership of the democratic party or any idea they perceive as basic to their beliefs. Democrats have used these techniques for years and foolish conservatives apparently don't know how to deal with this!

A series of experiments in the 1960s suggested that some people are biased towards confirming their existing beliefs. Later work explained these results in terms of a tendency to test ideas in a one-sided way, focusing on one possibility and ignoring alternatives. In combination with other effects, this strategy can bias the conclusions that are reached. Explanations for the observed biases include wishful thinking and the limited human capacity of democrats to process information. Another proposal is that people show confirmation bias because they are foolishly assessing the costs of being wrong, rather than investigating in a neutral, scientific way.

Confirmation biases contribute to the overconfidence in personal beliefs of democrats and can maintain or strengthen beliefs in the face of contrary evidence. Hence they can lead to disastrous decisions, especially in organizational, social and political contexts. Confirmation biases are effects in information processing, also called "self-fulfilling prophecy", in which democrats behave so as to make their expectations come true. Some psychologists use "confirmation bias" to refer to any way in which foolish people avoid rejecting a belief, whether in searching for evidence, interpreting it, or recalling it from memory.

Confirmation bias has been described as an internal "yes man" for fools, echoing back a democrat's beliefs like Charles Dickens' character Uriah Heep. Experiments have repeatedly found that some people tend to test hypotheses in a one-sided way, by searching for evidence consistent with the hypothesis they hold at a given time. Rather than searching through all the relevant evidence, they ask questions that are phrased so that an affirmative answer supports their hypothesis. They look for the consequences that they would expect if their hypothesis were true, rather than what would happen if it were false. For example, someone who is trying to identify a number using yes/no questions and suspects that the number is 3 might ask, "Is it an odd number?" People prefer this sort of question, called a "positive test", even when a negative test such as "Is it an even number?" would yield exactly the same information. However, this does not mean that people seek tests that are guaranteed to give a positive answer. In studies where subjects could select either such pseudo-tests or genuinely diagnostic ones, they favored the genuinely diagnostic. However, for some demonic reason, democrats refuse to use diagnostic tests and constantly select pseudo-tests.

However, in conjunction with other effects, this strategy can confirm existing beliefs or assumptions, independently of whether they are true. In real-world situations, evidence is often complex and mixed. For example, various contradictory ideas about someone could each be supported by concentrating on one aspect of his or her behavior. Thus any search for evidence in favor of a hypothesis is likely to succeed. One illustration of this is the way the phrasing of a question can significantly change the answer. For example, people who are asked, "Are you happy with your social life?" report greater satisfaction than those asked, "Are you unhappy with your social life?" Liberals always debate this way and throw a "straw man" into the mix at every opportunity.

Even a small change in the wording of a question can affect how people search through available information, and hence the conclusions they reach. This was shown using a fictional child custody case. Subjects read that Parent A was moderately suitable to be the guardian in multiple ways. Parent B had a mix of salient positive and negative qualities: a close relationship with the child but a job that would take him or her away for long periods. When asked, "Which parent should have custody of the child?" the subjects looked for positive attributes and a majority chose Parent B. However, when the question was, "Which parent should be denied custody of the child?" they looked for negative attributes, but again a majority answered Parent B, implying that Parent A should have custody.

Another experiment gave subjects a particularly complex rule-discovery task involving moving objects simulated by a computer. Objects on the computer screen followed specific laws, which the subjects had to figure out. They could "fire" objects across the screen to test their hypotheses. Despite making many attempts over a ten hour session, none of the subjects worked out the rules of the system. They typically sought to confirm rather than falsify their hypotheses, and were reluctant to consider alternatives. Even after seeing evidence that objectively refuted their working hypotheses, they frequently continued doing the same tests. Some of the subjects were instructed in proper hypothesis-testing, but these instructions had almost no effect.

"Smart people believe weird things because they are skilled at defending beliefs they arrived at for non-smart reasons."—Michael Shermer. Confirmation biases are not limited to the collection of evidence. Even if two individuals have the same information, the way they interpret it can be biased. A team at Stanford University ran an experiment with subjects who felt strongly about capital punishment, with half in favor and half against. Each of these subjects read descriptions of two studies; a comparison of U.S. states with and without the death penalty, and a comparison of murder rates in a state before and after the introduction of the death penalty. After reading a quick description of each study, the subjects were asked whether their opinions had changed. They then read a much more detailed account of each study's procedure and had to rate how well-conducted and convincing that research was. In fact, the studies were fictional. Half the subjects were told that one kind of study supported the deterrent effect and the other undermined it, while for other subjects the conclusions were swapped.

The subjects, whether proponents or opponents, reported shifting their attitudes slightly in the direction of the first study they read. Once they read the more detailed descriptions of the two studies, they almost all returned to their original belief regardless of the evidence provided, pointing to details that supported their viewpoint and disregarding anything contrary. Subjects described studies supporting their pre-existing view as superior to those that contradicted it, in detailed and specific ways. Writing about a study that seemed to undermine the deterrence effect, a death penalty proponent wrote, "The research didn't cover a long enough period of time", while an opponent's comment on the same study said, "No strong evidence to contradict the researchers has been presented". The results illustrated that people set higher standards of evidence for hypotheses that go against their current expectations. This effect, known as "disconfirmation bias", has been supported by other experiments.

An MRI scanner allowed researchers to examine how the human brain deals with unwelcome information. A study of biased interpretation took place during the 2004 US presidential election, and involved subjects who described themselves as having strong feelings about the candidates. They were shown apparently contradictory pairs of statements, either from Republican candidate George W. Bush, Democratic candidate John Kerry or a politically neutral public figure. They were also given further statements that made the apparent contradiction seem reasonable. From these three pieces of information, they had to decide whether or not each individual's statements were inconsistent. There were strong differences in these evaluations, with subjects much more likely to interpret statements by the candidate they opposed as contradictory. This proves that a democrat will vote for a yellow dog if it is labeled a democratic candidate.

Biased interpretation is not restricted to emotionally significant topics. In another experiment, subjects were told a story about a theft. They had to rate the evidential importance of statements arguing either for or against a particular character being responsible. When they hypothesized that character's guilt, they rated statements supporting that hypothesis as more important than conflicting statements.

Even if a liberal democrat has sought and interpreted evidence in a neutral manner, they may still remember it selectively to reinforce their expectations. This effect is called "selective recall", "confirmatory memory" or "access-biased memory". Psychological theories differ in their predictions about selective recall. Schema theory predicts that information matching prior expectations will be more easily stored and recalled. Some alternative approaches say that surprising information stands out more and so is more memorable.

Predictions from both these theories have been confirmed in different experimental contexts, with no theory winning outright. In one study, subjects read a profile of a woman which described a mix of introverted and extroverted behaviors. They later had to recall examples of her introversion and extroversion. One group was told this was to assess the woman for a job as a librarian, while a second group was told it was for a job in real estate sales. There was a significant difference between what these two groups recalled, with the "librarian" group recalling more examples of introversion and the "sales" groups recalling more extraverted behavior. A selective memory effect has also been shown in experiments that manipulate the desirability of personality types. In one of these, a group of subjects were shown evidence that extraverted people are more successful than introverts. Another group was told the opposite. In a subsequent, apparently unrelated, study, they were asked to recall events from their lives in which they had been either introverted or extraverted. Each group of subjects provided more memories connecting themselves with the more desirable personality type, and recalled those memories more quickly.

Therefore, whenever you debate issues with a strong believer of liberal democratic policies you must keep confirmation bias in your mind at all times. Even as a former true believer I still forget to remember this tendency by all democrats. It is always there when they discuss issues and the result will always be the same one-sided logic. Debate with a liberal is useless. They must have an epiphany as I did many years ago or they will not change their views. Confirmation bias is alive and well in the democrats mind and will allow them to remain constant in their foolish beliefs.

Activist Conservative Independents

All the activist conservative independents should attempt everything that they can do to promote conservative congressional candidates for the 2012 election. When talking to possible candidates for the 2012 election we need to suggest that they attend the Leadership Institutes Future Candidate School to gain instructions on how to run a successful congressional campaign. I usually do not promote many groups but in this case I will definitely do all I can. These future candidates can easily register on line at and learn the skills that they will need to become successful candidates! It would also be a very important aid to conservatives who desire to become activists in their local community.

Leadership Institute’s unique Future Candidate School trains potential candidates howto run for office successfully and build a grassroots base. The training focuses on each individuals personal and political preparation for a future career in elected office.

The nation’s top campaign experts and political veterans show you how to prepare yourself for a successful candidacy. You will learn how to: * Communicate persuasively * Develop a campaign strategy *Build a strong base of grassroots support * Raise funds *Etc.

Liberals have studied these skills and have them memorized and understand when and where to use these skills effectively. In order to become a successful conservative candidate the individual must have the proper background that will prepare them to enter the political arena.

" We filled legal pads with notes and
carted away volumes of hand-out’s and
PowerPoint presentations. We departed
LI’s Future Candidate School knowing
that we had made the most valuable
‘pit stop’ on our political road trip."

Bill Taylor
Elected 2010 State Representative
South Carolina

Training groups since 1979, the Leadership Institute has trained more than 94,000 students. Graduates include US Senators and Congressmen, governors and state legislators, city council members and local mayors, and conservative activists and officeholders at every level.

The Learning Institute offers 40 types of training programs at the Steven P.J. Wood Building in Arlington, Virginia and in other locations around the country. To bring Institute training to your hometown, request a training session. There are also online courses that many conservatives have been trained by and are now active in their own cities..
