From Grassroots to Corn Stalks: Be an Independent OrganizerSubmitted by jaktober on Tue, 05/24/2011 - 13:03
I notice that a lot of people on here have a lot of great ideas.
Iowa Straw Poll Phone Bank | County Committee[wo]men | iphone App | Facebook Page | PaulTube, etc.
I was at the SF meetup and saw the same thing, a lot of people with great ideas, but just like here, they were coming from people looking for consent to act.
I said something to the group about just doing the little things they get in the head, instead of waiting to come to the group or asking the group to do it (things like fliers, websites, facebook pages, videos, etc.). Basically, taking the idea of Grassroots to heart and being an Independent actor.
To that, John Dennis (ran against Pelosi for congress last year) said something to the effect of, "Instead of Grassroots I'm going to develop Ron Paul Corn stalks."
Be a Corn stalk. Be strong and independent. Do your thing and join with others who are doing their thing.
I'll put something together this weekend (have a couple RP related articles to write) with a resource list, etc. for the Corn stalk (Grassroots) Movement.
