A Democratic Strategy for Winning in O8!....

Lewes, DE: Mr. les Aaron has been invited to discuss his new book, “A Blueprint for Winning:” Taking Back the White House at the upcoming meeting of the Eastern Democrats of Sussex County at their meeting on June 7th.
According to Aaron, “A Blueprint for Winning is a compendium of what every good democrat needs to know in order to assure a democratic victory. A democratic victory would serve notice on this autocracy that American government is not “unilateralist” but was designed to have three equal branches of government with innate provisions for oversight, checks and balances and the Congressional power to conduct investigations and hearings. When it becomes clear to us, the citizens, that separation of church and state is violated, that the president has excessive powers that exceed his legitimate authority, that our protections under the Constitution can be arbitrarily side-stepped, that the president can eavesdrop without the court’s express permission, that guarantees like habeas corpus, posse comitatus can be willfully set aside, when business operates in collusion with government to import cheap labor and “off-shore” jobs at the expense of American labor, when security for our borders can be dismissed and global warming poked fun at, when it is possible to go to war for insufficent cause, it becomes obvious that the party in power has overstepped its bounds and immediate adjustment is required if we are to restore a modicum of equilibrium and fairness in governance.
.Contributing to America’s malaise is the belief by a majority of Americans that the democrats have become powerless, that the media has failed in its responsibilities and that the system must be brought back into balance again if only to protect American democracy and to rebuild our prestige in global markets. Towards this end, this book is not only a resource for election strategies and tactics, it delves into areas that have been neglected by prior political tomes: How to effectuate change. It describes in detail the history of the republican party, their “weapons” of mass communication, how they achieve dominance and what we can do to change the existing formulae.

A Blueprint for Winning begins with an overall review of the last six years of Republican rule under President Bush and aks the question why this government was so determined to gain power and so little interested in governance. It also questions many other aspects of government including why the Democrats have, with the exception of William Jefferson Clinton, faired so badly in getting their candidates elected. It suggests that the republicans have been much more successful at preparing the groundwork and in-depth organization than the democrats have been and gives the reasons why.
A Blueprint for Winning then proceeds to provide an incisive look at what democrats need to do to win in 2008 through an analysis of a panoply of resources, methods and techniques—some of which derive from marketing and positioning a ‘brand,’ the use and misuse of “framing,” marketing and media communications which the opposition has already learned to use with admirable dexterity and skill and the media. A comprehensive analysis of the last two elections is designed to open the eyes of the voter and spell out the challenges that democrats face..

“ In preparing this overview, the author points out, “I decided to view the challenge from many different angles and as a result, probe and discuss the key instruments of developing and maintaining power in a marketplace where, ostensibly, many are disconnected, and the dynamics have changed dramatically from the former smoke-filled rooms to the invasive power of TV made possible by an endless flow of money from motivated business interests. In this equation, the voter has become virtually superfluous superseded by the power of money and influence with the Middle Class paying the price. Today, many are even questioning whether democrats can even survive as an effective party.
“The irony is, of course, that politics, as many of us realize, affects all of our lives in deep and meaningful ways and if we, the citizenry, do not become involved, we are likely to face dire consequences as Americans and as concerned citizens. At present, we are already seeing the results of our disengagement from the failing schools to the serious concerns over our health care system or lack of one. No common good can derive from a fusion of interests of between politicians and business lobbies; or the media and government and the current predispositions need to be addressed and corrected.”
The author challenges the reader at every turn. “Would the Founding Fathers be proud of what they saw happening in America today? Hardly, he suggests. In fact, they might even be astounded that the people have stood by uncomplainingly as their freedoms, rights and jobs are being taken from them and moved offshore to benefit business investors and leaders. ” Nor is the author inclined to treat democrats with kid gloves; this critique has everyone in the barrel taking responsibility for America’s declining position in the world today, a debtor nation that exports agricultural products and ‘scrap,’ and gross importer of manufactured goods, a Colony that is deeply indebted to Saudi Arabia, England, Japan and China.”

To the multiple faceted and complex challenges facing America today, the author sees a solution in his Twenty Point Plan for America which begins with a zero budget approach to ideation and demands hard answers to tough questions as a precondition to doing what is necessary to return America to its former greatness.
Included in this over approach, is a warning that not only do we need to refresh our understanding of what democracy infers but what our obligations are as citizens living in a democracy. In the current dialog, we must also ask ourselves whether we are willing to sacrifice our freedoms and liberties for some abstract advantage in the War on Terrorism; furthermore, unless we are willing to commit ourselves to the purposes of a democracy as expressed by the Constitution, we may wake up to discover that our rights and freedoms have been neutralized and that we face a government that resembles more a totalitarian state than a democracy as we warned by deToqueville and others who saw the potential weakness of a democratic form of government more than one hundred years ago!...

The author, in developing his thesis, discusses the Democratic Party and whether it is still capable of representing some fifty percent of the population who identify with either independent or democratic values. Or whether the grass-roots, so distanced from the process, may feel that the only way to guarantee representation is to fundamentally change the party or create a new party.

Mr. Aaron has based this overall political tome on more than forty years of active behind the scenes participation as an activist and supporter dating back to McGovern, Humphrey and Kennedy up through Clinton, Gore, Kerry and Dean. . Currently, he serves as the Chairman for the Committee for Positive Change.. Formerly, he was the president of four companies where he served as a spokesperson for business and industry. .
