How to get into politics without going to a Trump rally

Getting into politics is hard, but it can be done if you’re willing to learn the ropes.
And it’s not that hard, said James Miller, a former Obama administration official who’s now a managing partner at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm Miller Samuel.
“If you’re smart, you’ll figure it out, and if you don’t you’re going to be a pariah.”
The first step to getting into political power is to find out where your political friends are.
Miller Samuel says you can find out what their interests are in politics by following their social media feeds.
Then, they’ll provide you with tips on how to get ahead in the game, including how to reach out to your potential supporters.
For example, the firm recommends following the Twitter account of a member of Congress or a Democratic senator, who will have more followers on Twitter than the average American.
“The first thing you want to do is find the profile picture of your target,” Miller Samuel told The Associated Press.
Once you’ve found your target, Miller Samuel suggests following the politician’s Twitter account, or at least the first tweet that comes out of it, to get a sense of what kind of person they are.
The firm also recommends following their Facebook and Instagram accounts, so you can see how they interact with their followers.
It’s a good idea to make a list of the names and addresses of their political allies.
Miller says that once you do this, you can follow up with them, or you can ask your friends to do the same.
You can also use social media to get tips on where to go to events and get more information about them.
“You can follow their social activity and see what they’ve been up to and where they’ve gone and what they’re interested in,” Miller said.
“It can be quite helpful.”
Miller Samuel also advises finding out who their favorite political figures are.
“Once you start to do that, you start getting into the real world,” Miller added.
To find out who your political allies are, Miller says you should follow a group of friends who follow a particular political cause or a specific politician, who might have an agenda.
The most important part of doing that, Miller said, is to be selective.
“Be very careful that you’re only following a certain group of people,” Miller told the AP.
“Some of those are friends, some are family members, some might have been in your life, some have been elected officials, some aren’t.”
