Ya know what I'm sick of?Submitted by wpsmithjr on Wed, 06/29/2011 - 02:00
I drive for a living, so I spend a lot of time in my car. The metro area I'm in (Birmingham, AL) has a pretty limited choice of radio stations, so instead of listening to music, I usually listen to conservative talk radio.
For over 4 years now I've been listening to people on these shows say things like, "If only there was someone good the true conservatives could vote for." or "Where is the Ronald Reagan-like candidate when we need them?" or "We just don't really have any good conservative candidates."
You know they have RP supporters calling them non-stop, every day. Seriously. I've even heard them say, "We get a lot of calls and emails from those crazy Ron Paul supporters. We have to weed through them some days just to get some decent calls on the air." I've even heard Michael Savage say, "Don't call me about marijuana or Ron Paul. I just don't want to talk about that today."
The conservative talk radio shows are censoring our message just as much, if not more, than the MSM on the idiot box. Rush, Savage, Beck, Schnitt, Hannity, Jason Lewis all these shows should be talking about RP... but they're not. These are HUGE audiences. We need to tap into this.
My question(s) is (are)...
#1. Why do they not give us the time of day? Are they owned by the same companies that own the rest of the media? (I already know the answer.)
#2. How do we tap into this form of media? (I already know the answer.)
We should call into these shows... every day... like I'm sure we already are... but...
We need to do it using stealth. We need to call up acting like we want to talk about one of the subjects they are discussing... usually one of the day's news stories... and then after we get on the air, move into the subject of Ron Paul.
And we need to ask them, "How come we have the most consistently conservative member of Congress running for the presidency, and yet you are always lamenting the fact that republicans don't have anybody good to vote for?" or "How come you claim you want people to vote for a conservative and yet you never mention Ron Paul's name on the air?"
We need to do whatever we can to break through and get on the air with our message. Heck, I bet if we concentrated our efforts on talk radio the way we do over the internet, we could dominate talk radio from now until the election... just like we do with the internet. We've got the internet locked up. We'll never get the tv goons to listen to us, but I bet we could OWN the radio. Imagine instead of hundreds of emails about RP, which they just delete... if almost EVERY caller on their radio show was a stealth Ron Paul supporter. I'll work on getting a list of their toll free phone numbers for us to call. I've already got some of them stored in my cell phone.
