Drain The Swamp 2.0

After viewing this latest debacle with health care and now probably looking at a tax debate that will likely cut corporate taxes while not doing anything for the middle class, we on the Right significantly need to start to understand the difference between strategy and tactics. The future of our country requires it.
And that will mean we have to look within ourselves as conservatives. Sometimes we think so purely about our beliefs that we confuse strategy and tactics. A simple definition of the difference between the two would be that strategy is how we view our philosophy overall and tactics are those things we need to do that sometimes don’t jibe with our beliefs.
A great version of this is our belief in free markets and the belief that the ‘market will take care of things over the long run’. For many things that is true but we our kidding ourselves if we think that works 100% of the time and that the transition is painless. If so-called ‘free trade’ hasn’t taught us that yet then we will never learn. Anyone who has had a parent or grandparent who was ripped off by an unscrupulous financial advisor or a crooked businessperson knows that rules and regulations do have a role that the free market can’t provide.
