APATHY will not be TOLERATED!Submitted by freedomnyms on Wed, 03/03/2010 - 08:58
Solon was an Athenian lawmaker.
One of his reforms was the disenfranchisement of any citizen who might refuse to take up arms in times of civil strife, a measure that was intended to counteract dangerous levels of political apathy.
Pisistratus, ended the factionalism by force, thus instituting an unconstitutionally gained tyranny. In Plutarch's account, Solon accused Athenians of stupidity and cowardice for allowing this to happen.
Now I am here to tell everyone here that apathy will not be tolerated any longer. We can snivel here all we like, but we are going to have to bring 30% of the ENTIRE POPULATION onto our side (Medina 18% means another 30% she almost wins) if we are eventually going to win. This is going to take a much more organized effort.
We must MERGE all the money bomb lists. We must keep people up to date on what's happening in the country. We must start a daily one hour news show that could EASILY have videos from youtube here and there. We need to somehow get a few HUNDRED THOUSAND people who are willing to donate on money bombs together into a big list. Ok ya, I am scared of lists too but who cares.
Let's look at a guy like Jake Towne. The money he can raise is a joke. No one runs because they know they can't raise the funds. That's where a big list that can donate, oh lets say $1,000,000 in a single day to a new candidate would get people pleading to run.
If Medina had enough money she'd have caused a run off.
It all comes down to mobilizing the forces effectively.
Where it the master plan? heck, I would donate to an office of a few people who have full time jobs organizing this type of thing. And if they screw up, then they don't get any more money bombs do they.
So, where is the master plan????????????
