LibBerte: ‘Let’s Take It Outside’Submitted by LibBerte on Thu, 06/28/2012 - 09:41
We have AT LEAST 2 important months left to take Ron Paul’s campaign message out from your mama’s basement and into the streets.
[ Yet, time is short before the Convention, so I’m going to do something very un-conventional. As usual when I post I byte off more than even I can eschew to obfuscate. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obfuscation) Let’s start masticating so you first get a taste of what’s on this plate. I will update with links when the kitsch’n is ready for the server. Bon appetite. ]
STOP KONSUMING KULTURE
Garbage Disposal -- Throw In Da Kitsch’n Sync
THINK – (Take It ) OUTSIDE THE … Kitsch’ n Kaboodle OctoBOX …
Time enough to brainstorm ideas and means to provoke gainful talk with red meat eating republicans. There are, of course, other factions we must focus on as well. But for purpose of this example, in the run up to the convention, let me illustrate the challenge partly inspiring the title of this thread, by considering the kulture behind the mind set of foreign policy hardliner ‘Mericans. Can we get them to wonder at a new image – ‘A TRUE American Bad Ass’ …?
Pwn the Paradigm.
How do we introduce and exalt the TRUE Grit that the best of our movement represents in order to supplant one, in this example, invented to benefit FAUX News and the Military Industrial Complex which Bad Boy/ Bad Ass Whol- …ly Owned Subsidiaries serve?
Artist: Brantley Gilbert
Song: Take It Outside:
"These days things have changed
A lot of talk
Lot of pushin' and shovin'
Well if you wanna walk the walk
Let's have some respect
Got girls in here
Just pay your tab
And lay down your beer
So let's take it outside
Take it outside
It's man to man
Toe to toe
You know we need to go
Where nobody's gonna break it up
Not until we've had enough
And if you think you've got the guts
Then let's take it outside
Well if you think you're man enough …"
As a vanguard I advance this article to start what I think is a salient discussion of where the rEVOLution heads from here. I now plug a notion I’ve come up with to raise awareness as funds are raised for a kulture war effort. Coincidentally, it fosters the hand to hand, which in my opinion, this nxtfaze of the engagement requires.
I have an idea to instigate a 'Talk With Me About F R E E D O M' campaign … to prime the conversation encouraging people to share how they feel about freedom. In my view, this is no time for low profile.
I intend to launch a blog [Here’s the work in process, by all means, all help is welcome]:
[Wordpress link to follow]
So here’s the concept:
A modest blog to hopefully continue as an adjunct of my participation here at DailyPaul. I’m open to colleagues; I invite suggestions, support and critique. The idea would be -- cultural/art/alt market /off grid/natural/philosophy/history/economics/esoteric/fringe research/ and only a bit of politics in our closet away from the good china. I envision it as a haven for pirates and those of us in the resistance inclined towards gorilla (sic) tactics to garner sustenance to best carry on Kulture warfare … ‘outside’ where there is always less risk of embarrassment to polite company that may visit our parlor to sip tea which might tip and spill when the elephants in the room drop by in order to soil our doilies.
I have a friend with a print/embroidery co. who can produce front and back printed apparel, … T-shirts etc. to be offered turnkey at better than retail pricing in manageable quantities. We’ve set up a net store [to be linked on a DP ad and linked to the new blog] to help underwrite this blog effort at the same time it promotes an anarcho-capitalist activist response to our r’Evolutionary moment in history. I’ve quickly pulled together some designs for gear and priced some turnkey packages that I hope might encourage rEVOLutionaries to rapidly disperse to the fields and parking lots like Grateful Dead tailgaters (ironic, huh?). My intension is to help streetwalkers for the Liberty message stumble into remnant, stir the SLEEP-walkers and, at least flank Zombies on the march, if you can’t stop them dead in their tracks.
The concept is: Go to events (gun shows, festivals, flea markets, sporting events, picnics, reunions, conventions, etc). Resell to get gear in the streets showing that the rEVOLution lives. You’d be right to say I’m being shamelessly commercial as I would encourage each of you true believers in free market capitalistic solutions to be. Unflinching … without timidity, nor apologetic in our principles and ideas. We must respect ourselves and our cause if we are to receive respect.
Here’s the spiel:
Declare Independence … YOURS - this 4th of July weekend. Declare Independence from the domineering model of the summer soldiers donning the sham patriotism of the dying paradigm … Let’s hasten it’s demise and leave the scoundrels no last refuge. This 4th of July, be a one man [or woman … ] parade … or, better yet, one on one, bandwagon the bystanders who can’t side step elephant droppings because they tag along distracted, tantalized by costumed clowns. The point is when the band strikes up, your different drumming may cause some tired marchers to stray from lockstep with those in the familiar uniforms.
So I say, it’s no time for grassroot underground activism. ... Sunshine !!! PATRIOTS ... RISE and SHINE ! Strip the Sleep-wear. The activism I propose is we ‘eschew’ uniformity. Don’t fall in line. Don’t march off in any single file direction. Stay close to our respective communities, in fact … – plant and cultivate. We bear fruit this autumn by seeding and working our own gardens this summer, in the work clothes/business casual/sportswear of unbowed, insurgent rEVOLutionaries.
You want to get out there and protest? OK … OCCUPY YOURSELF - outreach within your reach. Would you sell the shirt off your back for RP's message? ... So ‘just do it’ ;-) ... Good thing you'll have a spare to put on and head right back out on your walkabout for The F R E E D O M message.
Here's the deal:
-- Front and back printed 12 different front designs to start --pick'em
Or get the wholesale 6 dozen or 12 dozen price and promote them at festivals. [ front & back – 2 – basically retail price; 1 or 1 ½ dozen -- good price. ( 2 different front slogans); 6 dozen – wholesale price. ( 3 different fronts) ; 12 dozen – best price. ( 4 diff fronts) ]
Raise some spare hope, while you promote some real change, promoting real hope, raising spare change, in time for the Battle of Tampa.
One more thing: I encourage that we open source and share ideas. If yours are good, and we select it as the right stuff, with your permission, I’ll add it in the lineup, have some produced for order and send you a couple free shirts in your size. And so I ask: What might we promote, and for that to work, I mean ‘market’? What do you think is hot cake for this summer, preTampa and beyond ? Let’s Talk. Indeed,
“Will You Talk With Me About F R E E D O M ?”
P E A C E and P R O S P E R I T Y for one and all.
Ironic, don’tcha think?
