"Feet on the Ground" Beats Lobbyists & Money!
Despite being statistically far inferior to Precinct Organizing, Political Parties favor other voter mobilization techniques, such as mass advertising, mass mailings, and centralized professional phone banks. With these techniques they can better control the message, it’s easier, and the campaign consultants make more money. They get ~15% commission on the utilized capabilities in addition to their monthly consulting fees. As long as campaign consultants of both parties use the same ineffective voter mobilization techniques, no one will notice that they are not utilizing the most effective Get-Out-The-Vote technique of Precinct Organizing.
In contrast, mobilizing an army of volunteers to do Precinct Organizing is more cumbersome for campaign consultants and it is for them more difficult to control the message. Therein lies the power of the patriot movement with its many passionate and informed volunteers! Elected officials are elected locally one vote at a time and no amount of money, lobbying, or advertising can match the “Feet on the Ground” of this volunteer base pursuing Precinct Organizing.
