Taking the Grass Roots to the next levelSubmitted by Heinballz on Sat, 05/26/2012 - 23:34
I have a thought that has been building in me - and I wanted to bounce it off everyone to get opinions. The Liberty message has taken a strong hold on a specific age group; Ron Paul is known for being popular with the 18-30 crowd, we all know this. MSM constantly questions why. Why is Ron Paul's message popular with young people? Clearly any Ron Paul supporter over the age of 30 knows that his message is not age restrictive. Just as every person in the age group of 18-30, you are here reading this because you have adopted the world wide web as your main source of information and you are internet savvy. Being as such, you have seen the countless videos of Ron Paul building a foundation below his career as a politician that maintains a plain & simple message. With every Ron Paul video I watch I ask myself, HOW? How can this guy not be seen by everyone as America's savior? How can anyone deny his message?
I don't believe anyone that has heard his message CAN deny him; which only leaves me to conclude the naysayers haven't heard the words directly from the man's mouth.
Here's what I'm proposing - A list of your favorite Youtube videos, speeches,etc - with a concise message. RONY 2012 may be too long - but something as thorough. I would like to select a few video's & start making DVD's. This wouldn't be grass-roots without a choreographed plan of attack by everyone. We all know those Aunts, Uncles, Brothers Sisters, Grandpa's Grandma's that don't even know what an internet browser is - but may know how to watch a DVD. We can set up this as an easy to navigate, packaged ready to burn/easily downloadable DVD file (torrent / yousendit / whatever file share of your choice) Buy a stack of DVD-R's and start Burning. Have every Ron Paul supporter capable do the same. It just has to be simple & provocative - Maybe a sharpie written title on the CD that reads "Truth" or "Watch Me" or whatever you think may tempt someone to watch it. The idea would be that it is not pre-packaged - Not flashy and not MSM propaganda. More of a secret you're passing along to a friend or neighbor. Hit the streets blasting neighborhoods with these DVD's harder than AOL disk in the 90's. Let us bridge the gap to make sure as many willing people as possible hear this message of Liberty - Not just select group that have internet or know how to use it.
Anyone up for it? Suggestions for video's? Any videos that do a good job of immediately sucking people in - forcing them to watch?
