Numbers to Brag Upon
With a monthly budget like the one below it is no wonder why ABATE of Indiana proudly prints the data for the world to see. Note the size of the October payroll alone at $96,726.81. Opponents at the statehouse know with funds like these it would be no easy feat to pass legislation against bikers even with a full media blitz and legal bribes referred to as campaign donations.
"if you have organized a vast, mass-based people's organization, you can parade it visibly before the enemy and openly show your power. Second the ears; if your organization is small in numbers, then... conceal the members in the dark but raise a din and clamor that will make the listener believe that your organization numbers many more than it does. Third, the nose; if your organization is too tiny even for noise, stink up the place." ~Saul D Alinsky, Rules for Radicals
Organizations lacking the numbers printed below would be wise to follow master organizer Saul Alinsky's advice during their quest for success. Enemies of liberty would only be to happy to exploit lack luster numbers in their efforts to pass bad legislation by either pointing out the bark is worst than the bite to legislators or use a power media blitz that could not be answered in kind.
"Know your enemy as you know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles with no danger of defeat." ~Sun Tzu
