I have observed over the years that more folks vote in elections against something they consider bad rather than voting for a good thing. I suspect that has something to do with human nature and also the tone of campaigns. The fear of something also factors into the voters’ decision-making. Recently, the Republican National Committee (RNC) held a training session in Florida that involved teaching political operatives how to raise big bucks for GOP candidates. The RNC laid out its specific plans for fund-raising at this meeting.
Apparently, the party bosses believe they can scare their donor base into forking out huge sums of money through an aggressive campaign capitalizing on fear of President Obama and a promise to save the country from heading into socialism. The power point presentation used at the meeting wasn’t supposed to be made public. Not only did the presenters talk about using fear to raise money, but also discussed appealing to the egos of wealthy contributors. The question was put to the group: “what can you sell when you do not have the White House, the House, or the Senate?” The answer was to scare folks about the President and socialism.
