"The State is Crumbling"
Special to L. Neil Smith's The Libertarian Enterprise
Hey there folks!
If you're like me, then I suspect you are just plain sick of business as usual in Washington, D.C.
If this sounds like you, then don't just stew about it. Instead, get up and take action! There are sixteen month between today and November 6th, 2012. That's 518 days available to effect real change. During that time there are many things needing to be accomplished, but here is a simple marketing effort in which we can all participate, hopefully resulting in some real impact.
Recently, I was reminded of the title of one of Steely Dan's albums:
This is the perfect anthem for the coming election! It is time to mount the Herculean effort to clear the political stables of all manner of human waste that has accumulated over time. We did a bit of housekeeping in 2010, which was a good start, but has proven to be inadequate in effecting any real change. So now, the philosophy must be that so far as Washington is concerned, "Everything Must Go!"
From that album, the song, "The Last Mall" opens with the stanza:
It's Cancellation Day
Yes the Big Adios
Is just a few hours away
That sums it up for me!
Marketing teaches us that how we label a thing goes a long way in helping to to sell it. To get across the message that a real and substantial change is coming, I suggest that we make every effort to spread the message that we are not approaching November 6, 2012 as just another typical Election Day, but see it as:
Cancellation Day: The moment when all career politicians are summarily dismissed for past, unacceptably bad behavior.
So put this date on your calendars and then help spread the word. Let's do everything we can to inject "Cancellation Day" into the political dialog, promoting November 6, 2012 as our new national holiday honoring all patriots who fight on for renewed liberty, the restoration of individual rights, and a proper, constitutionally limited government in the tradition of a true republic!

I hope you find this idea compelling, and I appreciate any effort you are willing to make promoting it to others. Now let's get out there and make sure that the shelves of liberty have been restocked come November 7th, 2012!
