These are the people we really need to be reaching through to, and here's a tactic to accomplish that ...Submitted by baparson on Tue, 01/24/2012 - 12:54
I'm re-posting something that I think is an important tactic that we need to be thinking about to reach the people we really need to be breaking through to (I don't want to sound like a broken record, but I think this is really important) ...
Folks i'm thinking we need make more of an effort to call in and make it on the neocon radio shows, like Hannity, Rush, etc. I know that sounds crazy, but it's their audience that we need to start bringing on board, so we can have better showings on voting days. Since we are on the right side of the issues, we could expose the hosts for the fake conservatives that they are right in front of their audience. I saw some post the other day about a Hannity phone bomb. I thought that was a great idea!
I so want to call into Hannity, but unfortunately I can't because I'm at work during most of his show (I only catch the last hour). I'd love to call in though, because I know I could school him. I know his style, and since I know the issues inside and out and know his tactics, I know I could expose him in front of his audience. Since we're on the correct side of the issues we could expose those guys in front of their audience and maybe start to make inroads to their audience. For people who can and do call in, you have to disguise yourself to the call screener. You have to mention that you want to talk about something current in the news about one of the neocon candidates, Newt or Romney, and appear as one of their supporters. Then when you get on the air let them have it, but (AND THIS IS IMPORTANT) you can't simply scream and sound crazy. You have to calmly and respectfully bring up the issues that need to be exposed. Like a good one is ask them why it's considered more conservative to borrow (adding to the debt in the process) and spend more money overseas. I'd love to hear Hannity wiggle his way out of that question. I think when confronting those guys, one topic we could really hit them hard with is the debt, because that is one of the areas where those hosts are seriously flawed, and their audience needs to know about that, to discredit them a bit and get the audience to think about looking into Ron Paul, or at the very least get people to start thinking independently. Once they start to think independently, they'll naturally gravitate towards Ron Paul. It's almost a guarantee.
I've recently heard a few callers make it on Hannity and they represented Ron Paul well, they were respectful and talked about the issues. It was great stuff. I feel we need more of that.
We've seen how they co-opted the Tea Party. What we need to do by doing this is try to turn the tables on them and co-opt their audience.
In the link of the first post I provided, I added some comments with some suggestions. So please also see the discussion in that post as well.
