How many of you applied to be Chief Executive Officer of Eli Lilly & Co when you graduated from high school or college?
As I thought - very, very few hands are up - and those that did raise their hand never received an interview.
How many of you applied for jobs that were at the bottom of the company ladder - which you hoped to climb or to lead you to better jobs elsewhere?
Just as I thought. Most of you.
Then why do Libertarians keep applying for elective office jobs like President, Governor, Congress and Indiana General Assembly, and are then disappointed when they don't win?
I don't know why.
Perhaps more Libertarians should be starting at the bottom of the elected office company ladder and working their way to the top.
The "Moral Majority" did this in the early 70's, first running for school board and city council races. By the mid-90's, they had prime leadership positions in the United States Congress.
Perhaps the Libertarian Party should follow the lead of others, and first apply for the mail room positions, prove our worth, and move up the ladder to Congress, General Assembly, etc.?
Just my two cents worth.
