The eligible voters can be segmented into three categories…
- Those that would blindly vote for one of the two major parties
- Those that would vote emotionally based on the stated goals of the party with the best marketing
- Those that are aligned with the unstated goals of one of the parties.
There is little chance I can receive the votes of those in categories one and three. I must hope that I am able to convince more of those in category two to vote for me, than those in categories one, two, and three who will vote for any other candidate. So, I must make a compelling argument for the virtues of my positions and a compelling argument for those inclined toward that position to actually vote.
This blog is the beginning of the adventure and its challenges.
Conjecture: There are many people who would disagree with the unstated goals (aka hidden agendas) of the two sides.
