I am concerned that the “grassroots” are spoiling for a fight with the “State House”. For example questioning Sen. Dick Moore for offering a counter-point to the new administration or that you have to make it more “beneficial” for a legislator to be with you or “take them out”.
The legislature is an easy target but lets look at Romney’s record.
He went after “them” and got his ass kicked. Why?
In 02′ to 04′ while Mitt used the “State House” as his personal doormat with the media cheering him on, something strange happened.
The bad guys actually implemented some reasonable reforms that the general public liked and at the end of the day “they” picked up three republican seats.
Don’t let the “Conventional Wisdom” of the insider label blind you. In order to become relevant public policy players you will have to take a stand and let the politics play out, win or lose.
Remember once you get in the game you become part of the problem?
