I like your idea of using local newspapers to get word out, that is a strong way to reach the tax payers. Although the local newspapers are hurting
I'm sure if someone was writing a Thomas Paine Common Sense type article it would sell. I was also thinking why don't people on ATS create a
Newspaper based off of topics in politics, that ATSers could print off and send to people, or heck just place them at peoples doorsteps with the other
newspapers. That would be an effective way to get truth to the public and inform them about whats happening. Just truthful unbiased stories mixed in
with some opinion articles. Freedom of the Press.
One thing is for sure, local Newspapers are hurting for business and bad. Most of their revenue comes from Real Estate and Car Dealership advertising
and both are off about 60% from normal levels. Newspapers are teetering as a result of it.
One of the tough parts that effects all politics can be "To Much Information"
At all levels of our government they withhold information for more reasons than just to hide corruption. At some level information gets to be too much
for the average person to comprehend so they start rejecting the entire message.
Can you imagine the average farmer in Iowa, going yes, this all makes sense about those theives in Washington, but what about this here nonsense about
Space Aliens? Oh look here dear they are saying the Secret Service actually shot JFK! Wow would you look at this one Zionists are taking over the
world and are going to use technology to mimic the trump! What will they think of next! This is funnier than the National Inquirer, but I don't
beleive a word of it.
They toss it in the trash and go about their business. For all they know it could all be true, but they sure don't want any of it to be true,
including that you can't trust your own government to begin with.
It's sad to say but the only message that really works is the message most everyone can see some sense in and agree. The more you pile on that makes
people disagree, the more that disagreement leads to indecision and then inaction.
No offense meant to anyone but when you keep it simple and you keep it stupid, stupid, simple people feel comfortable lending support to something
simple and stupid they can understand.
Beleive me the stuff Washington does now days that intelligent questioning people object too, they don't even worry about, because they do manipulate
the education and media system to keep the majority simple and stupid, and they can always spin simple and stupid explanations that play on their
fears and uncertainties to get them to say...oh it makes sense to me.
We don't understand how they can possibly keep getting away with it, but the reality is the majority of the people are simple and stupid, and the
majority of smart people just love to deny things that pottentially spell bad news. Honey that is not a real UFO sucking our cows up into the air, I
am sure it's just a Steven Speilberg movie being shot. Check the Newspaper in the morning, you will see. I bet it has a big article about the
I get class action lawsuit notices in the mail all the time. My cell phone company overcharged people in 2000 sign on this paper and send it in to get
a check for 5.95, my bank engaged in some illegal practice in 2002 sign this form and send it in for 11.91 cents.
Something tells me these days there would be no shortage of simple average people who would be willing to sign just about anything for the chance to
As long as it's presented to them in a simple way that is!
