San Diego Mayor Filner & NY Mayor Candidate Wiener make the national news.

So: What do Politicians and Diapers have in common?…………………..……………….. They both must be changed often……………………. and for the same reason.

Thank you for the overwhelming response to my new book,

Fred Schnaubelt, Former San Diego Councilman & N. Park CRA President

FYI

All political power is derived from what you can do to or for someone!

Why do you think so many political candidates come before Republican Groups?  They believe you have enormous political clout — which you do — far more than you can imagine.  For candidates meeting Republicans is meeting the “grassroots,” the most effective way to overcome media bias.

 

Romancing The Voters, New Talking Points for Republicans (or the TEA Party) is for those who don’t have time to research political issues in depth and want more political power, to be more influential and more effective in countering the nonsense that spews daily from Liberals.

 

I don’t mention Filner or Weiner in the book but point out no U.S. President has received a majority of the votes from the Voter Eligible Population in the last 100 years.  President Obama got 31% of the votes from those registered to vote. By contrast, Mayor Bob Filner only got 24%.

 

The rules of the game, however, determine the outcome of any contest!

For instance, most people agree no woman’s basketball team can beat the L.A. Lakers. But change just one rule and you’ll get a different outcome: make everyone play in high heels. Imagine 7 foot tall ballplayers in high heels. The rules of politics ARE 50% + 1 =  100% of the pie  AND 50% – 1 = nothing. The notion is that whoever gets the majority of those who vote, should have unlimited power. Translation: We Won! Elections have consequences! Get over it!

 

Last Friday I was accosted by a liberal bemoaning the minimum wage.  He was outraged that Wal-Mart does not pay a living wage.  I asked him why 3,000 or more people apply for Wal-Mart jobs whenever they open a new store with 300 positions to fill. In Chicago Wal-Mart received 25,000 applications — strong indications Wal-Mart  is over paying for the jobs it offers.  He said there was a shortage of jobs in the country — as if that was an answer.

 

How many of you are aware of how few people are paid the minimum wage?

 

In Romancing The Voters, I point out that according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics only 4.7% of wage earners are paid the minimum wage, which is really a “learning” wage, and that only 1% of new employees are paid the minimum wage after 3 years.

 

How many have heard or read that people demand ever more government programs for which they are unwilling to be taxed? In Romancing the Voter, a study is cited that documents 63% of the requests for more spending, at the federal level anyways, came from government officials.

 

How many know why America is Rich?

 

The way the media reports the growing gap between rich and poor can be explained by an analogy.  When Bill Gates walks into a McDonald’s, statistically speaking, everyone present is instantly a billionaire if you average his 67 billion among the others. The media reports the gap between rich and poor by comparing groups or quintiles not comparing individuals. Over a ten-year period over half the people in the lowest quintile move to a higher income quintile and over half those in the top quintile move to a lower quintile and are replaced by others.  There is a lot movement up and down the income ladder as all people can testify from personal experience, from first job to retirement.

 

President Obama, for the second time is asking for a discussion on race.  Let’s acknowledge he leads the Democrat Party which has been racist since inception and for 200 years it oppressed, suppressed, and murdered so many Blacks that the Ku Klux Klan was indicted by a Grand Jury as the “terrorist” arm of the Democrat Party.  Let’s discuss why Martin Luther King was a Republican! Or, Booker T. Washington, 100 years ago, acknowledging a class of Blacks that make a living from agitating for Blacks because it pays!

 

Sometimes Republicans get so depressed and think things have gotten so bad they want to go home and turn on the gas — what with the universities dominated by liberals, and also the media and Hollywood.  But whatever liberals are doing it is failing.  Liberalism is failing.  For decades now over twice as many people self-report they are conservative as liberals.  In a recent Gallup poll it was 46% to 20%. If you want to correct the media’s misinformation and get more political power, Buy Romancing The Voters – After all, knowledge is power!

Make everyone play in high heels.

 

Romancing The Voters, is a political handbook of conservative talking points.

 

This book is for people who don’t have time to research the issues and for their friends, children and grandchildren.

 

If you’ve given up on your kids who have been politically indoctrinated by their professors, the media and Hollywood (as many have told me), and now are working on your grandkids here is a great handbook to get them on the right track. The majority of Americans, according to the polls, say “the country is on the wrong track.”

 

It is Short, Simple, Easy and Fun to read.  It is more than just bumper sticker responses to important issues that liberals use in trying to obfuscate important issues.

 

The issues covered range from: No president in 100 years  has received more than 36% of the votes from the Voter Eligible Population (VEP) aka, registered voters.  How liberals think differently, Gun Ignorance, Why the Minimum Wage is a Learning Wage, Why America is Rich, What is the purpose of taxes, and Why Martin Luther King was a Republican.

 

This book encourages thinking as a science with well thought out answers to difficult questions. An intelligent, effective way to get the country back on track and with which you can pass on the principles of freedom, a limited government, private property and free enterprise.

We all can learn from the wisdom of the ages, from Adam Smith to Milton Friedman, Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell — from the best, the brightest and most brilliant political and economic answers.

 

Romancing The Voters is a selection of dozens of writers and their most persuasive answers to current issues and you have them in this thin, little handbook!

 

Best part:  You won’t have to separate the wheat from the chaff from over 500 books.  It has been done it for you, providing you just the most cogent answers to “slay the philistines,” as the saying goes.

 

Many, if not most of the answers in this book will be new to you, or you have forgotten.  They are designed to educate not merely poke a sharp stick in the eyes of your political adversaries, which all too often is counter-productive.

 

For fun, in the Addendum are the 15 greatest political jokes such as, “Politicians and diapers must be changed often

……………………………. and for the same reason.” Mark Twain

 

My goal is to raise $20,000 to promote and advertise this book in various venues.  The venues that primarily cater to Conservatives, Republicans, Libertarians and TEA Party members.

You can see a sample of the book on romancingthevoters.com. This is to be followed up by a second book of issues in 2014. I’m  Fred Schnaubelt, Fred I’ve gained great insight into the issues and which prompted me to go on 35 year quest to find the most persuasive answers to counter liberal balderdash,  and “I approve this message.”  You can Google Fred Schnaubelt for more background information.

Tea Party Romancing The Voters

Paper Back on sell now https://www.createspace.com/4305683

Romancing the Voters is a series of issues that find their way into the public arena year

after year.

More about the book after something from the Author, Fred Schnaubelt.

Hi,  I’m Fred.

I was born in San Diego and since 21 have struggled to find answers to recurring political

issues. I grew up in Casa de Oro and graduated from Pt. Loma High School in 1958.

Been married 3 times.  I met Dr. Irina Nekolaevna

Antonova in Russia and married her in Moscow in 1987, just before the Soviet Union

collapsed.  I have two adult children.  At my age I’m thinking ahead and want to go

peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather and not screaming like the passengers in his

car.  So I’m sharing nuggets gleaned from researching over 500 books on the most

persuasive responses to some ever current political issues. The issues addressed are

intended to be controversial and hard.  Answers and insight required thousands of hours

of research, ever since I was 21 and first registered to vote.  I need your help in emailing

your comments about my book to your friends and in reaching my publisher’s estimate

of 10,000 sales.

“Romancing” is defined as: telling exaggerated lies, telling an untruth, or pretending with

intent to deceive, frequently done, but not always by politicians. This is an introduction to

the Art of Political Cross-dressing — using your adversaries own words against them in

debate. The issues come fast and furious with little time to think about them.  These

chapters have enough material in them to deliver fifteen 7 to 10 minute talks to your

Toastmasters Club or the basis for 250-500 word Letters to the Editor. First, you’ll

understand, for instance, why some people in local elections can win with only a few

thousand votes of the VEP in a city the size of San Diego, you’ll understand how liberals

and conservatives think differently — which you can use to your advantage. There are

issues that never seem to go away such as gun control, the death penalty, and the “The

Rich Get Richer and Poor Get Poorer.” You will know when the media intentionally or

unintentionally misrepresents data about the gap between rich and poor, and who really

benefits from minimum wage laws. You will learn why speculation and price gouging,

stripped of emotion, are beneficial to society. In addition, you’ll know why Martin Luther

King was a Republican. You will become versed in several “Teachable Moments,” for

family, friends and co-workers. For every Toastmaster and member of the TEA Party this

is a must read!

Do You Know?

No President since 1904 has received a majority of the vote from the Voter Eligible

Population?

Why liberals and conservatives think differently?

Newspapers don’t print the truth, they print what people say.

A 2003 study by Scotland Yard noted eight times as many killings by knives as by guns

in England?

In 2007, there were 613 fatal “firearm accidents” in the U.S. This was 0.5% of 123,706

fatal accidents that year?

The Death Penalty is an absolute deterrent to murder?

Why TEA PARTY members are so hated?

Zimbabwe’s government taxes, spends, promises, and prints money in billion-dollar

notes and everyone is a billionaire?

Why America is Rich?

In Reason Magazine Veronique de Rugy shows that of 675,000 millionaires in 1999, only

38,000 remained in 2007?

Why when Bill Gates walks into McDonalds, according to the media everyone present is

statistically billionaire?

A result of raising the “learning wage” – is millions of idle, restless teenagers have lots of

time for mischief.

The price of gasoline “adjusted for inflation” in 1919 was $3.84 per gallon; In 2012, 15

cent less than in 1918?

Why the Democrat Party has been the “party of the rich” for decades?

Why the government’s Bread and Circuses ended in ancient Rome?

How oil speculation benefits you and society as a whole?

Martin Luther King was a Republican and Why.

About the Author

Hi, I’m Fred,
At my age, I’m thinking ahead and want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather and not screaming like the passengers in his car.
I was born in San Diego and for 50 years (since age 21) struggled to find the best answers to recurring political issues.
So, I’m sharing, while still able, these political nuggets gleaned from researching over 500 books on the most persuasive responses to political issues that never seem to go away.
I would have loved to have a short reference guide like this when I was on the San Diego City Council to respond quickly to these issues when they repeatedly pop up every couple of years; some of which I never heard of before being elected.
I grew up in Casa de Oro (East San Diego County). My family moved and I graduated from Pt. Loma High in 1958. I joined a family cleaning business and in 1968 became a commercial real estate broker. I got ticked off at the government, ran and was elected to the San Diego City Council in 1977 where I served only one term as promised.  I have two adult children and have been married 3 times, most recently in 1987 in Moscow, Russia (USSR) to Dr. Irina Antonova.
I need your help in forwarding your comments about the book to your friends or putting them on Facebook in order to reach politicians, Tea Party members and political junkies across the country (and BTW reach my publisher’s goal of 10,000 sales).  Please note these issues are intended to be the more controversial ones and this Handbook is for providing you with more than “Bumper Sticker” responses to important topics of the day. (Look for 15 more issues in 2014).

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I am indebted to the following whose writings/teachings have contributed mightily to the political issues addressed in this Handbook. This book is designed to give you more than a “Bumper Sticker” response to some major issues of the day, and test the things you know, or think you know, or believe are right, and determine if your learning has been superficial.

The art of political Cross Dressing is using your adversary’s own talking points against him or her. It is vitally important to learn both sides of various issues to avoid being blind-sided by irrational outbursts. We all hold contradictory beliefs – we understand the meaning of words differently – You can use this to your advantage. This Handbook is a brief compilation of some of the most persuasive responses to numerous political issues, taken from over 500 books over a 50-year period, issues which appear year after year in the press and friendly discussions. Best part: You do not have to read all 500 books to get the most coent nuggets.

 

Romancing The Voters

Table of Contents

Chapter 1

Democracy and Majority Vote Not What You Think

Despite a very long Romance with the voters “Democracy” simply means majority rule — for good or bad. No U.S. President or Congress has ever represented the majority of the people, and, almost never more than a third.

Chapter 2

Liberals and Conservatives Think Differently

A curious thing about political opinions is how often the same people line up on opposite sides of different issues.

Chapter 3

Gun Ignorance

About guns, we only know a fraction of what there is to know, more is unknown than known, and most of it wrong.

Chapter 4

Death Penalty

My father was shot in the chest during a 1976 holdup in Dallas by a former employee on parole for murder.

Chapter 5

Bread and Circuses–Is ‘Tea Party’ rooted in ancient Rome?

The world is moved by men of principle. Sad to say, many people fear men and women of principle.

Chapter 6

Why Is America Rich?

Americans are richer today in most ways than were kings and queens, princes and potentates historically.

Chapter 7

Media Ignore Individuals in Gap between Rich and Poor

When billionaire Bill Gates walks into McDonald’s, the “average income” of all skyrockets to more than $1 billion.

Chapter 8

Increasing Minimum Wage Would Generate Adverse Result

Those calling for raising the “learning wage” to $9.00 declare even this is not enough to live on, why the hypocrisy?

Chapter 9

The 47 percent Who Don’t Pay Taxes

The Democratic Party has been the “party of the rich” for decades, led by rich media manipulators.

Chapter 10

The Gap Between Ignorance, Misinformation, Disinformation

“A cause of many of our mistakes and problems is ignorance —ignorance of the facts about the rest of the world.”

Chapter 11

What Is the Purpose of Taxes in Your City?

Professional sports fans said heck, if you’re gonna subsidize the arts we want our share of the fishes and the loaves.

Chapter 12

Kill the Oil Speculators

When speculators acquire oil supplies they perform a public service, even if unintentional

Chapter 13

Oil Finite But Inexhaustible

The sun is finite; the sun’s energy is undeniably inexhaustible. Oil, like the sun, is finite and inexhaustible.

Chapter 14

Why Martin Luther King was a Republican

“The Democrat Party, from inception ‘til 1964 was the party of slavery, secession and segregation.” Rev. Perryman

Chapter 15

Ronald Reagan Carries a Message to Garcia

Ronald Reagan’s wife pleaded with him not to make her go to another insufferable political event. So he…
