For Those Who Wish To Throw A Final Hail Mary Pass In Tampa And Say "No Way!"Submitted by Jefferson on Sat, 06/23/2012 - 15:46
I would like to start a thread to forge some ideas about the best strategy to "convert" the so called Romnnney delegates, before they get to the convention. We may have a couple hundred committed delegates, but we'll have thousands more supporters that could help in a number of ways.
Here are some ideas that stood out to me:
We have to think about this from the perspective of the delegates that will be showing up. How can we refine our message in a way that grabs their attention in such a short period of time?
I would like to see the opposing delegates exposed to these powerful messages from the time they land at the airport in Tampa, as they travel to their hotels, and as they travel to the RNC.
I think we should look at Tampa like the military does when they are about to invade a city. The completely take over the airwaves, drop leaflets, and establish control points.
Imagine seeing a contingent of active duty veterans with their respective gear on, that shows how RP has received more support from the military than ALL of the others combined. This is at the airport, and every other place we think the delegates might be hanging out.
Someone had mentioned slipping DVD's or comparison pamphlets under the doors of delegates that will be staying in the most likely hotels for the RNC. I think that is a good idea.
We could have signs on Taxi cabs, with short messages.
Maybe advertise on the hotel TV channels where they will be staying.
Have sign holding supporters lining the roads that lead from the airport to the hotels.
Possibly billboards in strategic areas?
Thousands of supporters that have T-shirts that say:
"Just say NO to Romney" (with the "o" in Romney as the Ohmamma symbol)
These are just a few ideas. I know that we can come up with much better and much more.
If Tampa is where we make our last stand, then let's map it out, and focus our energy on it like never before. If the plan is to appeal to the delegates consciences, then let's use our combined creativity, determination, and talent to do just that.
I don't want to go to Tampa to merely have an impact on a platform that will most likely be ignored. I want to go for ALL the marbles. If you think there is promise in this, then I would like to hear your ideas, so we can begin to implement them when the time comes. The time to plan and execute is growing short.
