You have just two days.
In two days, the ‘early bird’ pricing for our upcoming Political Leadership School being held in West Des Moines ends.
If you haven’t signed up yet, but have been meaning too, do it right now!
But let me warn you: this school isn’t for people who want to schmooze politicians and convince themselves that they are being effective.
It’s not a school for people who just want to sit around and complain on Facebook all day.
And it’s not a school for those who think that ‘politics is a rigged game’ or that ‘we can never be effective at changing things in Des Moines.’
The internet is full of folks like that and frankly, they’ll never change.
This school is for people who are sick and tired of politicians who say one thing on the campaign trail and then vote the opposite way once safely in office –- and who want to learn the tools they need to hold them accountable.
We’re going to be covering a lot of material in this day-long training class and every bit of it can be put to use by you in the 2018 legislative session!
This class will be held in West Des Moines on Saturday, November 11, from 9:00am – 5:30pm and some of the topics we’ll be going over include:
>>> How politics actually works, and why educating politicians about your cause won’t result in change in Des Moines;
>>> The greatest lie in politics, and how it can be used against you by legislators if you’re not careful;
>>> Real-world leadership strategies for grassroots activists to ensure that you don’t ‘get spun’ when you set foot in the Capitol;
>>> Effective lobby tactics for grassroots organizations that actually work;
>>> Practical tools on how you can run an election program of your own as early as 2018, to hold politicians accountable for their anti-gun votes; and
>>> How to start a political organization of your own and how to raise the funds you need to be effective!
And along the way, we’re going to be giving you countless behind the scenes peaks into the fight for gun rights here in Iowa over the last nine years — the sort of details that don’t always make it into an email alert.
In fact, during your lunch break (which is included in the price of admission) I’ll be giving you a behind the scenes tour on the successful fight to pass Stand-Your-Ground law in Iowa in 2017!
I can assure you that nothing as monumental as Stand-Your-Ground law passes through the legislature without a fight.
And it certainly didn’t happen out of the goodness of the hearts of the legislators in Des Moines!
This legislation passed because gun owners in Iowa, under the banner of Iowa Gun Owners, have become one of the most potent and effective political forces in the state.
Politicians understand that voting against the Second Amendment is a sure-fire way to get unelected fast — as thirty-five former legislators in Iowa can now attest!
And none of it was by accident.
Rather, it’s been the result of your non-stop support and a relentless adherence to the kinds of techniques that we’ll be teaching you in this class!
As we get into the 2018 session and fight to pass Constitutional Carry, we’ll need all hands on deck.
Coming to a class like this will give you an arsenal of tools that you can use to help us in that fight!
I hope to see you in West Des Moines soon!
P.S. In two days, the ‘early bird’ price to attend the 1-day Political Leadership School will expire!
This school is being hosted by Iowa Gun Owners and the Foundation for Applied Conservative Leadership and will give you all the tools you need to be an effective activist at the local or state level.More, attendees to this class are going to get a look behind the curtain at our fight to pass Stand-Your-Ground law in 2017 — and a preview of the Constitutional Carry showdown that’s coming next year!So register to attend this class right away, you’ll be glad you did.
