What Now? A Quick Sketch
Since the election is over, a friend asked me, "What we should do now?" He voted Gary Johnson, as I advised him to, rather than not vote at all. Many people I have talked to seemed surprised or affected in some way by the election. I was not surprised by the election, and I have a hunch that Romney actually won and that there was voter fraud involved in this election. Either way, Obama being elected or Romney, I had the attitude that it was back to work immediately after the election and that the election would be no time for celebration. And in any event, I decided to fire back with a few quick ideas on things the liberty movement can get going on and keep working hard at:
*Get Started on RAND PAUL 2016 campaigning! Or other candidates likely to run.
*Write letters to editors and other publications. Competing Libertarian newsletter or newspaper?
*Start fundraising now!
*Eye to local races for 2013.
*Start educating now!
*Enjoy some time off. Maybe now's the time to LIVE LIFE a bit?
*Create a PAC?
*Strengthen local groups (Set goals, get people to work towards them)
*Set up a phonebank and/or make some calls from home.
*Register people to vote. We need more liberty Democrats, something to think about.
*Create a local cable access TV show?
*Write elected officials. Maybe the local offices need more mail? Would this be more effective than contacting Congressional offices?
*Prosecute Voter Fraud.
*Read and distribute more good philosophical books on liberty.
*Create, support, and work with websites that promote liberty.
*Create and distribute lit on liberty principles
*Create and spread educational Youtube videos
*Sign waves (Though I do agree that this is not the most effective tool. Votes, votes, votes - we need votes, not to "raise awareness")
*Give public speeches and motivate people!
*Organize a Libertyfest at home, in other places? Have vendors come, speakers, games, etc. A carnival for liberty?
*Call people. Text people. Get everyone fired up about freedom!
*Create and lead groups. We need more groups and sub-groups. Organization. Hierarchy?
*Get better at living a private life - cryptography, eliminating paper trail. A private society is a polite society.
*Write stories and use parables to illustrate liberty principles.
*Get flags (Gadsen, American, Pine Tree) and get 'em flying.
*Organize boycotts of liberty destroying companies.
*Work on your prepping and disaster preparedness.
*What infrastructure is there, liberty groups, and how can you use it or be involved? Is there a Young Americans for Liberty Chapter at your local colleges?
*Time out: Fun Factor. Ron Paul Chocolate bars, Federal Reserve mints? All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Video games for liberty, etc. - necessary for sanity and well-being. And attract more flies with honey than vinegar.
