Liberty Movement YouTube Subscription BombSubmitted by Trevor Lyman on Sun, 12/29/2013 - 19:44
I want to get your thoughts on an idea for liberty activism.
The post and listing of YouTube channels for the effort is here: http://libertycrier.com/great-liberty-movement-youtube-subscription-drive/
Here is the concept from the page:
Together we can help the new media become more powerful than the mainstream media.
There are video gamers, pop-culture reporters, science trick makers and insane lunatics with YouTube channel subscribers numbering in the millions. The videos they put out reach millions of American homes every single day. And while there is nothing wrong with so many people tuning in to so much nonsense, certainly no one can say that any of these channels offer anything as important as the message of liberty. Yet even though the liberty movement numbers in the millions none of our content creators have the kind of support these more trivial video makers do.
Let’s change this.
Shows like Hannity, Maddow and Bill O'Rielly have a few million viewers a day. If we get a decent number of liberty oriented YouTube channels up to a million subscribers or more (something we can absolutely achieve) we will be able to reach millions of American homes per day as well, and so compete at a level on par with the mainstream media!
Educating the masses and taking back our country by undoing the lies of the mainstream media is now a much simpler task than ever before in history.
STEP ONE: Subscribe to as many liberty oriented YouTube channels as you can (see below) keeping in mind that you should make the time to watch and share their videos.
STEP TWO: Share this webpage with your friends and family.
Thank you for your support! Together we will move moutains!
So I'd like to know if:
1.) ...you like the idea and would get behind it?
2.) ...if you have any suggestions (channels to add, how to promote, etc.). I don't have all the channels that should be listed yet and they are not all in the proper order yet. I'm working on that. I could definintely use help in finding channels!
3.) ...what to do about conspiracy channels? My thoughts are that I cannot include them in this drive because while some of these channels do a great job of touching on important liberty topics, they are not what many feel the liberty movement is about. The conspiracy issue always has and I suppose always will create conflict within our group (or maybe I'm wrong?). I also want to be able to ask everyone in our final list to promote the effort and I think some will feel conflicted (and could even be hurt) in promoting a list with conspiracy channels on it. Perhaps the best way to solve this is for someone else to put together a drive like this for the conspiracy channels?
Oh..and while the DailyPaul doesn't yet have a YouTube channel I thought perhaps it would be worth it for them to put clips up from their radio program if we were going to get serious about creating a subscription drive. So, we can include the DailyPaul in this if too if a channel is created, etc. Just a thought!
To me the advantages are that it's completely free to do, it makes the channels self-sufficient (they can make money from ads and won't need donations), and it will allow us to complete absolutely with the MSM if we get serious about it and take it to the right level.
So...what do you think?
