Dear Bernie Sanders. Or Hilary Clinton. Or Jeb Bush. Or Marco Rubio. Or Donald Trump (Please, God, don't make it be Donald Trump). Or Whomever. It doesn't matter...
If you want something to get done or passed, just do the opposite of what that is. Because chances are everyone else will gang up to push for the other way, and then you'll ultimately get your way. Politics are less about issues, more about posturing. And reverse psychology is a better strategy than reason. The same way it works on children. After all, that's what most politicians are anyways, are they not?
So be like George Costanza when he does the opposite. You'll get the girl. You'll get the job. You'll get the congressional votes from all those who hate your stinking guts.
