The 80/20 Rule

Posted on January 12, 2014 at 4:54pm 0 Comments

In my humble opinion, a political party shouldn't change it's platform due to a vocal minority. It is the responsibility of that vocal minority to make cogent and persuasive arguments to change the majority's beliefs. If the vocal minority is unsuccessful in their attempts and remain frustrated, even though agree with 80% of the majority's beliefs, then maybe they should seriously consider aligning themselves with the opposing party.

Great idea about starting a internet radio program. I have been thinking along the same lines.

I was in a similar venture where I hosted my on local conservative TV (call in) show ("Out of Order" With Nate) about three years ago. I also guest co-host two programs on local radio. I had a lot of fun and made great in-roads into the liberal community with my conservative message. I feel more political debate in our community is needed.
