The Rules of American Politics
There are some things about this game called politics that are useful to know before you spend a dime on a political consultant or launch your career in public life. American politics is a game with very few rules, but there are a few that have stood the test of time. For example:
Rule 1. Politics is a Combat Sport
When the votes are tallied up, there is a winner and a loser, and the winners are the ones who have the power to make decisions that affect the way everyone else in America lives. Think of politics - especially political campaigns - as a highly competitive sport that is inherent to our culture. At the end of the game, if the score is tied, the players don't shake hands and go home. They keep playing until there is a winner. This is not a game for the meek or those without steel in their spine.
Rule 2. What Determines Your Strategy
a. Who is (are) your opponent(s)?
b. What are your resources?
All campaigns need a strategy. Yours will be determined by your opponents and the resources you have at your disposal to communicate your message. How you respond to different attack ads, mail pieces, and tactics will depend very much on the opponent(s) you are facing.
If you are going against an opponent with a lot more money than you, you are going to need to think very carefully and be extremely cautious about how you spend every dime.
Rule 3. Know Why You Want the Job
A good rule of thumb to determine if life in politics is right for you is that you should be able to articulate in thirty seconds or less why you want the job and what you're going to do once you get the job if you get it. Voters don't like candidates who have nothing to say, and they can quickly spot a phony. Can you articulate these points clearly, quickly, and concisely?
