I have been active in politics all my life. I have run political campaign efforts at the national, state, and local level.

Let It Be Trump

Please, God, Let It Be Trump—Steve Ybarra:

I specialize in vote by mail. I have been referred to as “the National Expert on Mail Ballot.”

I appreciate the compliment and, yes, it is true that I wrote the benchmark legislation on mail ballots in California and won the ballots returned race in every campaign I have worked in.

I had the highest verified return—95% of all targeted voters.

Now the person running lost because it was a tough race, but she was immediately elected to the next post for which she ran.

This all being said, let us talk about Trump.

In every political campaign one sits and says there are one-third who will always vote for the right wing, one-third who will always vote for the left wing, and one one-third who buy soap on sale.

All East Coast political campaign consultants fight over this last group of voters. The nine billion dollars that will be spent in next presidential race is about those folks.

I realized a long time ago that “languaged minorities”—voters who speak a native language as well as English—hate to go to polling places where old white people would insult them by asking them if they were citizens and then mispronounce their names.

The East Coast Euro-Centrist apologists for slavery will ignore then “Languaged Voters”—the Mexican American voter, the Korean American Voter, the Chinese American Voter, the Japanese American voters, the Indian and Pakistani American Voter.

They will segment the gay and lesbian voters into the one-third left wing and wont waste any time or money on them. Their issues are no longer issues. The African American voter is also in that group. Not to say that AA ministers of AA churches will not get "get out the vote" money because they always do.

This brings us to me.

I realized a long time ago that if you put a ballot on the kitchen table, the issues that affect the vote could be discussed in privacy. I realized a long time ago that when one puts a ballot in the mail, there were no ID checks or long lines or misprounced names or fish-eyed looks. I have also found that African American voters refuse to vote by mail

The Democratic Party refuses to recognize these simple facts and still wastes a billion dollars on Election Day.

Trump is a godsend. He has 30% of the Republicant Party out of the gate. All he needs is 10% more to be nominated.

When Hillary is nominated and goes after the languaged minorities vote and ignores the push to keep the campaign black and white, she will have 75% of that vote and will be elected, as did Obama.

All the nominee has to do is the same thing that I told the Obama people "Don’t drink the DNC money tea!"

Ask for the money from the people and you will win.

Speak to the languaged minorities directly and put people in the field, then you will win.

Do not hire some 25-year-old kid with no understanding of national elections. Hire the tried and true, the best languaged minority consultants to teach you how to run this type of campaign and you will win.

If you do not it will be President Trump and I can go back to American Samoa to get away as I did when RayGun was president.

Note to all: Ballots drop in California in 38 days. Have you heard from your democratic campaigns yet?

And yes the election is decided 10 days after ballots drop.
