When political parties cease to stand for much, or believe in much, they wither on the vine. Then they die.
In this video, how dying parties affect a Campaign Strategy. They create demand for smart, passionate people willing to fight for new causes in the marketplace of ideas.

The Republican Party now faces a defining moment.
It once stood for fiscal prudence and balanced budgets. It just passed one with a trillion dollars in red ink.
It’s a party that once believed in trade. It has now started a trade war that will bankrupt farmers and decimate farm communities.
It’s a party that once believed in immigration. Now it tolerates hate.
It’s a party that impeached President Bill Clinton because he lied about a dalliance with a woman who was not his wife. Go figure.
It’s a party that promised new roads, bridges, and airports. Then spent all the money on tax cuts for billionaires.
For years it promised a market driven health care plan superior to Obamacare. Turns out it doesn’t exist and never did.
It is a party that has run out of ideas.
Likewise, if you look at the playbook of the Democratic party, most of it is an anti-Trump screed.
All of this creates an opportunity for smart passionate people who want to run for office, for we are a country hungry for new faces, fresh ideas, candidates willing to fight for new causes in the marketplace of ideas.
