“We have too many people right here in the 7th District alone that are not only destitute, but hopeless,”
~ Stanley Mack ~
Last weekend I received a link to an interview that Amanda Read, a writer, had done with Stanley Mack. I already knew from personally speaking with him that he could make his message clear. I knew from those around him that he had been in the habit of making a very good impression as he worked side by side with Don Chamberlain. I knew as a 6 year Navy Veteran, he had a fine foundation for the organizational skills needed as well as numerous other benefits to winning office and leading well. I needed media to let other people see and hear him in action. Stanley is someone who can inspire and who can accomplish the task of getting the message directly to the masses. Stanley can do this well. Now I had some examples. Amanda filled her writing with quotes from Stanley like the one above. He shined.
“To this district and anybody who intends it harm, or anybody who wants to allow it to just exist and fester: This is a wake-up call for all conservatives, Republicans. This is a wake-up call for our nation,” says Mack. “There is no other reason that we have allowed the issues to go this far, and to continue the dogma and lip service that we’re getting from some of our elected officials.”
Since then, we had him on CC2C and Ken McClinton had him on the Exceptional Conservative Show. Stanley hit it out of the park both times. Stanley had clear crisp answers. Simple terms, illustrations, and solutions. Listen to both shows. I am confident, that if you just listen, you will like what you hear. That is not always the case. Over the last two years, I have had interaction with some incredible candidates. Not all of them could sell themselves. Stanley can. He is a natural. Stanley is a Frederick Douglass Republican. Stanley knows how to find common ground.
Sunday, Stanley was interviewed on The John Fisher Show on 1420AM WACT. My internet kept me from really hearing well, but I caught some pieces. I had a conversation afterward that went something like this:
(OK, exactly like this.):
Me: “He has blown me away …he is good!”
Response: “Yes, he is a natural.”
A Natural. People are beginning to call him a natural. More than one. Stanley has the natural ability to explain the reason the policies of the left create situations like they did in AL 7 to those who do not keep up with politics. He can explain, how and why, basic principles that the constituents need to know to change hearts and minds. He can find the common ground to make that discussion possible. He effortlessly uses illustrations to convey his message. Stanley Mack has the natural ability to change hearts and minds. Stanley can convince. Stanley can message.
This morning, I listened to the show again in full. Wow! Stanley hit it out of the park again. After two shows already under his belt in one week, Stanley was in the swing of things. The venue was incredible as well. John Fischer does a superb job! I found very refreshing the “Plain Talk, Easily Understood with NO Political Correctness.” Stanley comes in on the 2nd hour. Don’t miss the first, and listen after Stanley is done. You will not be disappointed.
Listen to the archive:
I want you to notice something basic in all four interviews. When asked, “Why ya runnin’?”, Stanley’s response is always the same. He always goes right back to AL7’s current conditions. The quote from Amanda’s interview, his Fisher Show response,”Look around!”, and his answers on BlogTalk, all go straight back to the plight of the constituents in Alabama District 7. The question to the constituent is “Are you better off now than you were 40 years ago?” Stanley lived that question. He left, came back decades later, and found his home even further deteriorated. He understands the plight of these people.
Stanley knows how to explain how AL7 got there, and he has solutions that WILL get them out. He can get through to those people we never reach. He is a natural. As Stanley reveals his road to becoming a Frederick Douglass Republican, notice he says that he looked at the basics of the parties, and found his own way. Stanley Mack does not want to run a campaign to tell voters how to vote. He wants them to understand why. Stanley Mack has the skills to explain. He is a Natural.
If I were to draw a candidate out of a group. The best of however many I had. I would use the following process taken lightly from the story of Gideon. First I would separate out all those who could message, and tell the rest to go home. Simple. Then I would pull out those who looked for and discovered real solutions to correct problems, those who wanted to accomplish something, those who wanted to “Roll Up Their Sleeves and Work.”, those who were not in the game to play politics….The rest can stay and help. 🙂 My last step would be to look at where they stand on issues. Do they stand flat footed on the basic principles that made the Abolitionist Frederick Douglass Ronald Reagan Republican Party great? The foundation that made this the most prosperous nation in the history of the world, or are they squishy on the issues, trying to walk the political fence. As far as the fringe issues, I would lay them down. I’ll pick them up once we get the basics situated. Not before.
Stanley Mack is a Natural. Home Run on all three. Plus…he has a game plan. A winning game plan. This district is un-winnable by traditional campaign tactics. Oh..they will play an important roll, but winning this race solely relies on going back to the basics, educating the masses, and changing minds and hearts. That is Stanley’s game plan. Traditional method would be to align Stanley on a moderate to conservative scale at whatever point seems to match him up to take as many voters from his opponent as possible. Find the matching point and use that for the talking points. How did that work for you Mitt Romney! This district is un-winnable by even the best campaign tactics. You can assemble a team of the brightest minds of the past 50 years on campaign strategy and you still will not win this district. You could spend millions on this campaign and not win. This is a 70/30 game. It is un-winnable. The game is bet against it. You have to even the odds before you even get close. There is only one way to do that. Educate.
I am glad it is un-winnable. That fact is what makes the opportunity so great. Big hurdles foster great strength. Stanley can win this. We can do this. It will be a huge job and he will need lots of help, but if we would get back to the basics everywhere and educate the people, we would create landslides out of 50/50 races. Stanley Mack has the winning game-plan, despite the odds. It is the simple game game plan, it is the one that has always worked. When Stanley wins the un-winnable, the GOP will have no choice, but to take notice. This is how we have to play to take back this great country. Educate.
Stanley is a Natural. But he cannot accomplish this task himself. This is not a one man job. This is going to take everyone. High profile activist, low profile activists, boots on the ground in AL7, Alabama, and anywhere close enough to march to AL7. We need online activist from all over the nation. We have the ability. We have the troops. We just have to gather them. There are millions in this nation that get it! We watched grassroots workers all over the nation wake up and get behind conservative candidates these last two years. We have to get the focus on AL7 and Stanley Mack. He is rolling up his sleeves for two jobs, not just one. He first has to educate. He will win a good majority in a constituency of educated people. We have to help him. I cannot sit in a living room in AL7 and discuss basic principles. I cannot be in a park in Birmingham speaking at a rally. We have to have people on the ground. We have to have people in cyberspace.
The one and only goal is to raise name recognition on Common Sense, and Common Sense has an incredibly high Positive Intensity. If Common Sense wins, Stanley wins. If Stanley wins, I am confident he is the perfect man for the job of Congressman. I am confident he will make a difference.
Stanley needs every high profile activist in the country flocking to AL7 to share the common principles Frederick Douglass and Ronald Reagan stood on. The principles that Stanley Mack stands on. The principles we all stand on. The principles that made this country the place that makes people risk their lives to enter. I’m not talking about coming in and receiving a speaking fee for singing to the choir. I’m talking about rolling up sleeves. I’m not talking about getting flown in, staying at a hotel, and being introduced on stage. I’m talking about tanking up and going for a drive to AL 7 and explaining to people why our principles foster freedom and why the current direction always ends in slavery. I’m talking about thinking out-o’-the-box. You gotta get to all the people we have not been reaching because current campaign methodology cannot get us there. We need the high profile activist base to put down book deals for a moment and do this. This can be won.
We need Bloggers and Tweeters and Facebookers and YouTubers and…and …and….We need to make America aware of the plight of AL7. We need to do what we do best. Share info and gather the workers. We have to focus on this district. We have to focus on KCarl and the Frederick Douglass method. Learn the history of this great man and the abolitionist movement.
We are headed for unadulterated slavery. That is a fact. History tells us exactly where socialism takes a nation, every time. Simple: East/West Germany; When the wall fell…which way did the people run? When was the last time you knew of someone risking their life to swim and float on milk cartons in shark infested waters from the US to Cuba? We have the facts. We have to make sharing them priority, and not just within ourselves. But we have to focus it on Alabama District 7. Cuba has been releasing the bonds, slightly. They are only tightening in America. We have to win in AL 7 so we can show the rest of the country that we can take it back as well.
We need ground troops in AL7. Herman Cain showed us we could make great strides with almost no money. But it takes people giving time. We need people to organize on the ground activities. We need to come up with every way possible so that by Nov 2014, we have had a chance to reach as many voters as possible. We need letters to editors, we need printed material, we need your time. We need people sharing the story of Frederick Douglass with their neighbors.
We need an all-out, absolute, complete, full-blown, all-encompassing, all-embracing, full-scale, far reaching, in-depth, intensive, no stone unturned, out-and-out, profound, radical, sweeping, total, whole-hog effort! If we win the un-winnable, we will inspire a nation to free itself. It all depends on whether everyone gets in and believes, like the little engine that could, that we we can do this, or if we just let another missed opportunity to go by.
We have to explain the truth and expose the lies. We have the facts to back us up. Those facts work. It is exactly the reason the left spends their time calling us racists instead of discussing principles. Socrates said that when the debate was lost, that the tool the loser picks up is slander. He was exactly right. We have to stop that cycle. Only one way. Quit letting ourselves get stuck debating nonsense and get back to educating those who are not listening to that debate anyway. Stanley Mack knows what to say, and how to say it. He knows how to inspire. Listen to him for yourself. He is a natural.
