In order for an idea to make the phase change, from just "here's a great idea" to an actual functioning reality, the idea needs a champion. The champion is like like the midwife, who guides the idea through the various stages, organizes all the different aspects, communities and individuals who will bring it to fruiting.
Dr. Paul called himself "The Champion of the Constitution." You might call me the Champion of the Daily Paul.
It is not necessarily the person who comes up with the idea that becomes the champion. For this particular idea, it needs a champion with a certain skill set.
It sounds like what we need is someone who can make good videos. We have someone here on the DP who can - tragedy and hope. He's a user here. He used to make Ron Paul videos, but after the campaign ended, he is famous for his Alan Watts videos. He would be a good candidate to make a video. Are there others here?
At any rate - good idea. Step 2 is how do you make that idea a reality.
And one piece of advice: Make the ideas about liberty and freedom - yes.
Just picture a short video explaining why we should bring our troops home, have sound money, cut taxes and spending, balance the budget, end the drug war and give power to the individual while promoting truth, freedom, peace, non-aggression and voluntary humanitarian help to our fellow man.
Absolutely. But don't put Ron Paul in them. This is purely a practical matter. Outside of our little garden at the Daily Paul, Ron Paul is polarizing. People already have set opinions about him, and at this point, it is not going to help to advance the message.
Look beyond Ron Paul. Focus on the message, which is strong enough on its own, not the man. Time to put down the crutch and walk with our own two feet.
Otherwise, GREAT IDEA!
All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.
