3 ways for GOP to win 2014 elections

With the 2014 mid-term elections just months away, the GOP has a great opportunity to retake control of the Senate, as well as, add seats in the House. Here are five strategies for retaking control of Congress and put America back on track to prosperity.

1. Focus on the economy

Millions of Americans are displeased with Pres. Barack Obama and the Democratic party because their policies have clearly led to job losses, a weak economy, and less U.S. prestige in world affairs. High taxes, Obamacare, more regulations, and a dysfunctional bureaucracy have weakened our country.

In the media, Republicans should stress how they would add good-paying jobs and improve the economy.

2. Detail Obamacare nightmares

Democrats are politically vulnerable because they passed a law a majority of Americans opposed. The GOP can highlight nightmare stories from a dysfunctional healthcare system to show that private industry can do a much better job than a nationalized healthcare system.

The VA scandal shows how bureaucrats can literally kill patients through substandard care.

3. Stay away from social issues

Obama and the Democrats no longer have credibility when it comes to employment and job creation. Thus, they'll attack Republicans on social issues such as equal pay, women's rights, and race issues.

The GOP should avoid this trap by focusing on the issue that matters most: jobs and the economy.
