How To Win A General Election By A Landslide Victory


  • Jones, Peter


Some political parties have become victims of high technology politics; especially those in Latin America and the Caribbean who continue to practice limited database thinking. Those who have continued to practice political rule by thuggarism have found themselves behind the political curve of win ability, as the short–termism of this policy lacks sustainability beyond a year. The politics of the end of 20th century and now that of the 21st century has been seriously influenced by Globalization and its intrinsic facets of economic and financial marginalization and or redefinition of power. Many worldwide have used these high technology political strategies to maintain power and retain power when elections have been called. Those who live in the realm of Democratic idiocy will never hold the reigns of power, merely tasting it from time to time as the election political wind blows but never really harnessing its effective power. A good political platform speech is of importance. However, a good platform speech with strong subliminal suggestion and content and intention can never be duplicated. Some have this gift, some learn it while others never quite get there and automatically become a victim of the social, economic and political whirlwind of the New Global Informational Politics which is being used to manipulate uneducated , low educated or poorly educated voting populations worldwide.
