Republicans and conservatives have tried lots of strategies for winning elections, some successful and some not. But maybe we've been going about this all wrong. Everyone is familiar with the saying, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." The point is, if you give someone a handout, they won't benefit long-term, they'll just become dependent on you for giving them their next handout. Well, maybe if so many Americans weren't dependent on big government, there wouldn't be as many people voting for big government politicians. If we can create a culture of independence and personal responsibility again, people wouldn't be so concerned about protecting their government benefits. Which means we all win.
Help us spread the word about our new strategy: "Teach a man to fish, lose a Democrat voter."
