Path to Greatness
Barry, My Liege :
The good news about your situation today is a clear path to greatness for you ; and, the even better news is the United States of America will be a better country if you walk that path.
You will achieve greatness by restoring the Economic National Security of the United States of America.
Make no mistake, the path is difficult to walk. It will test you to the utmost.
Restoring our security will require you to pass several laws through Congress ; and, that is where the difficulties lie.
The list of laws we need is enumerated in this space as published on 9.22.12 with the title 'Recovery and Restoration of the USA, 2013'.
Now, it happens that your party does not have a majority in the House of Representatives, which means that you will have to secure the votes of some Republican House members for every law you pass.
I cannot overstate the importance of your personal involvement in the process. You cannot outsource the campaign.
Only your personal, intimate involvement will succeed.
Nobody else, not even Nancy Pelosi or John Boehner, can get this done for you.
And, My Liege, you have between 6 and 12 months to accomplish all that you can accomplish - it will be too late after that.
Here is an amateur's suggestion about how to walk that path.
First, create a list of each law required to complete the path.
Then, for each law, find a number of Republican Representatives needed to pass the House.
Ideally, each such Representative will be from a closely fought election where the Democrat opponent is a strong contender.
Contact the three largest campaign contributors to the Republican's election campaign and determine that each is indifferent to the proposed law.
Then, you personally make an offer to each backer and to the Representative that in exchange for the vote on your proposal, the Democrat challenger will not receive Party financing for the next election.
Of course, the Republican House members will be different for each law you work on, but the process will be similar.
We cannot overstate the stakes for our country here, My Liege.
Succeed here and the country is saved.
Fail here and the great American experiment is dead.
We wish you Godspeed, My Liege.
Your faithful servant,
