Fascinating Read

This guy--Gavin C Schmitt--has a better understanding of modern world events than most. I need to read him more carefully. I found him because he commented on the fact that I put the wrong picture up on the Ron Paul post. He's on LJ, let me go find his handle....

Edit: unlocked. Also, GCS's handle is gavin6942

If I won, I'd have to fulfill my duties. But I suspect I'd only be around one term, because I wouldn't change my views. I don't care about making money, so I'm completely un-buyable.

But yeah, I've thought about running for Congress (as a Representative) just to get in on debates and in the newspaper more. I worked on a campaign last fall (which won), so I have a pretty good idea how that works.

I definitely know the things I WOULDN'T do.

Well, as far as campaigning goes, I wouldn't cold-call people. I was against this from the beginning and told them so.

I did it a few times (made about 1800 calls) and I just didn't feel right about it. For every person who had increased name recognition or had a question or concern addressed, there were five that were very upset that they were being solicited.

So, I wouldn't do that. I'll focus much more on yard signs, because I strongly believe that's what drives most people to vote.

yard signs!!!?
Wow. I must confess, I do look up the unknowns that advertise in my neighborhood. And sometimes I vote for them, if what I find is in line with my values. I think having a truly informative website is key. And I also think travelling and speaking and visiting the locals on their home grounds is important...
