DrDog’s 2nd Rule of Politics

2021 October 31
by drdog09

Remember Rule #1 –

No politician gets a ‘Pass’ for another term.

The outcome of the principle is that during a primary there shall be a faux candidate No Confidence. Any candidate for office must exceed the vote tally of No Confidence. Any or all below that tally are eliminated. The practical outcome in most cases will be that the entire slate would be wiped clean as any reasonable applicant would have risen above the bar. Such a rule would likely have prevented a David Duke win for example.

Well here is Rule #2 –

A politician is responsible for all actions in a campaign whether his or others.

This seemingly goes against the ‘innocent till proven guilty’ that is the basis of the US judicial system. But here is a case that I believe a much older proclamation applies –

Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” “I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?” – Genesis 4:9

For the voting public the retort is YES YOU ARE. The politician is responsible for himself, his campaign staff, and other third parties from whose actions they may benefit. And yes I am specifically targeting the McAulife campaign and the Lincoln Project as an example in action. Not that that pair is unique, the dirty tricks have been going on since the founding of The Republic. The problem for the voting public is that it is extremely hard to discern where a campaign is coordinating with a surrogate or not. The simplest solution is to assume in all cases that they are. But, but …

Well lets address the ‘innocent till proven guilty’ aspect. For a politician there would be a simple solution to this:

  • Declare at the outset they will reject any third party assistance.
  • Actively denounce any untoward actions in their behalf.
  • Sue in open court such individuals or organizations that act in their behalf.

The McAulife campaign as of this posting has not made any positions on the whole tiki torch affair. Conveniently the Lincoln Project fell on the sword for him. But that is not the same thing is it? The harder case for rule #2 is it would be highly unlikely for a law to be written let alone enforced. Would probably as effective as the Logan Act. This is a case where one’s ethics as a candidate and those of the voting public come in.

Rule #2 will only come into play when two things occur. A) The public starts demanding candidates take a moral stand in campaigning. B) Candidates who do stand for character start winning wholesale at the voting booth. John Adams said it best –

[I]t is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.

    #2, the next 6 to 8 weeks are going to be very interesting as the Federal EO and various state vaccine mandates start to take bite. We shall see if the government blinks or if it doubles down on stupid.

    I’ve pretty much stopped being surprised by the amount of abuse the public is willing seems to be willing to take from the Democrat leadership and a complicit media. However, for once I would like to be surprised in a positive way.

    What this shows is that this country has long since lost the art of being risk takers. Most are now sheep or at least compliant. Part of it is because too many people are dependent on the public dole. Part of it is because many are lazy. Part of it is because they are in debt up to their eyeballs buying crap that produces nothing.

Canceling it probably as simple as staff not wanting to pull a hat-trick and not give the opportunity to be out there on election eve tripling down on dog shit – or having to answer any questions – shouted from voters, cause we know damn sure the press ain’t gonna pester his ass.

    “Cotton highlighted Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers and former president of the United Federation of Teachers, as illustrative of childless left-wing figures seeking control over parents and children in the context of education.
    He stated, “In some cases, [they] don’t even have kids. Randi Weingarten, the head of the American teacher’s Federation — the biggest teacher’s organization in America — doesn’t even have children of her own, yet she presumes to dictate to parents about how they should care for their kids, about what they should think about their kids’ own education.”….

    This begs the question as to what do you actually own? Do you own your house or are you renting it from the government no different than is done in China. You do have to pay property taxes even though you’ve already purchased it.

    “This begs the question as to what do you actually own? Do you own your house or are you renting it from the government no different than is done in China. You do have to pay property taxes even though you’ve already purchased it.”

    Not much, except; in China you have to pay it all up front. They do not have a mortgage market in the American sense. Nor do you own the land, that is leased by the developer from the State. I wish the Aussie govt good luck in collecting. In Victoria and Sydney the RE market there has been in the doldrums. So a lot of current owners are probably underwater, no equity to collect on.

    “With Bitcoin it can only be taken via torture, and if you hide your key or even more extreme being multisig then even that would fail.”

    Question — do you have your BTC code memorized. I would suggest most do not. Hell most Americans can’t even remember a 10 digit phone number these days. They don’t have to torture you. All they need to do is seize every digital device you own to deny you access to the coin. If they can’t have it neither will you.

    75 – If you believe some of the responses from exit polling questions about mandates they’re still a lost cause (mainly due to no va).

    77 – umhmm – fire up the found some extra usb sticks, also lets not forget early voting in VA started in sept too, so plenty voted well before the last 2 weeks of supposed implosion. That said the usual suspects finally did ‘call’ it, but they’ll have no problem retracting of course in the morning if told. I noticed with 85%in NJ was closer then predicted (then again I have no idea ‘where’ is still ‘out’ so maybe it ends up not so close), and it’s NJ if it’s with-in a point they will find the votes in Camden (just looked it’s only 305 of 345 pcs reporting), and the lead is only ~1.5k votes, which will disappear me things easly with 40 pcs to work in Camden of all places, and another 50 in Essex, and not much else left for Ciattarelli to counter assuming profiles of both stay around the same %ages so that’s over imho.

    Trigonometry is NOT BEING TAUGHT in American schools!! Schools are focusing on mathematics concerned with specific functions of angles and their application to calculations. This focus is on the six functions of angles. We are calling them sine (sin), cosine (cos), tangent (tan), cotangent (cot), secant (sec), and cosecant (csc). But this is NOT Trigonometry!!
