REVIEW Part II : How Republicans can WIN in a Changing America

How Republicans can WIN in a Changing America: The Art of War with Lesson Plans

By S. J. Helgesen and V. Lance Tarrance

Book Review By John E. Wade II


The authors state, “Hillary’s time has come…unless she is unmasked and viewed as many see her: an ultra-liberal, highly impatient, chronically intolerant, extraordinarily calculating and sometimes vengeful person.”   They explain, “Her biggest asset is her live-in banker, mentor and sometime sparring partner, the 42nd President of the United States.  Bill Clinton’s foundation, his contacts, contributors, venues and microphone are all Hillary’s for the asking, and the use of them she will.”

The authors caution, “If Republicans truly want to win in 2016, they must acknowledge the new reality of the changing voter ‘marketplace’ that includes style over substance voters and watch how the opposition courts them.”

I agree completely with the authors that the 2014 elections are critical if we are “…to reclaim America’s core conservative values.”  Loses would “…give the President and the Progressive Democrats carte blanche to finish their job of taking the world’s most powerful country on an orgiastic spending binge, destroying America’s financial future.”

In Louisiana, I am supporting Congressman Bill Cassidy, M.D. for the U.S. Senate in 2014.  He’s an outstanding public servant, both as a doctor and previously in both the state legislature and Congress since 2008.  Completely out of sync with her constituents, Senator Landrieu cast a deciding vote allowing Obamacare to pass, and her voting record is 97 percent aligned with President Obama.  Most of the citizens of Louisiana just don’t espouse the liberal ways of Mary Landrieu or President Obama.  I believe Congressman Cassidy will soon be our next Senator.

The authors suggest that Republicans select a third-way candidate for President in 2016.  Past examples of third-way candidates include Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan.  It’s important to select “…another outsider who can change the landlocked polarity in WASHDC.  It has been done before, and it is time to do it again.  It just takes common sense and uncommon courage.”  As the authors state quite dramatically, “The third way is the only way Republicans can win in a changing America.”  I agree.

I highly recommend the Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, as a third way candidate.  Scott Walker has dramatically demonstrated courage, leadership, wisdom, competence, and honesty.  I highly endorse his book, Unintimidated, as a way to get to know a Republican, who is in tune with the Innovation Age, and one who can WIN the office of United States President in 2016.  My review of this book will be posted to my website in the very near future.

How Republicans Can WIN is a must-read manual for all serious Republican candidates and supporters, not to mention all American citizens who sense that all is not right in Washington.  I have only touched on the high points of this work of clarity and reason.  I encourage you to dig deeper by reading this book.  Here’s a link to purchase the book on Amazon:
