I see that a lot of people would pretty much do "nothing".

If you take the $25,000 and don't use it to help anyone else out, then you are being selfish because what use is money if there's not a lot of people left on earth?

The money is the factor that makes people greedy.

For those that didn't give any suggestions, then I recommend you read this:

I'm interested to read more ideas on what method or form of communication you'd use to appeal to the masses with $25k.

Hmmm, 25K? Well, I guess I'd buy a really cool robe & hat (preferably with shiney objects inbedded in it) and a whole lot of Kool Aid.


Nah, I jest!

Seriously, though, the best I can come up with on that sorry budget would be to launch a widespread newsletter type project highlighting all of the data & proof against our gov't, etc. I don't know how far it would get with 25k but if you had some really powerful, genuine people behind it, spreading the word (face to face, NOT online), it would certainly hold more water.

If any potential whistleblowers were down in the dumps I'd use a few bucks here and there to bribe them to speak. They'd have to be really damn poor though.....lol.

Give me a few more digits friend, I assure you I would work wonders, at least locally

I would in all likeliehood spend it on a muscle car, and fill the trunk with whiskey and cigarettes. Then I would take a road trip with a few buddies around the country.

I would start a Nut Job t-shirt business and model my creations for social appeal:

I would flaunt my sense of humor in public, proving that labels are misleading. Then my marketing tactic would increase my sales and awaken the masses.

It could work

You're missing the point, not answering the question.

Well thank all of you who said you would save it and spend it wisely... FOOLS.... if everyone was given 25K$, well think about ... everyone ...
I would spend it within a week+ after receiving it... just in case it bounced mind you... they are not adding anything to table just diluting the existing value of the current exchange, which always results in INFLATION or more money less goods... and savings go down down down and loans go up up up ... default is high high high... and when it cant get any worse... it does famine, despiration. it gets ulgy... mind you in the 30's the Law sided with business and opressed the people. and this depression will shatter this nation ... for what reason I dont know... its like bill clinton said about the 911 question.... HOW DARE YOU.... where do you go from there... duals pistols in the street.. Where are the Ninja's Ben...? take one or two out and the rest will get the message. ha ha "Ben Fulford source...

Billboards with quotes that make people think...

I would use part of the $25K to set up a website that focused on the realities of alternative energies. I would take the remaining money and purchase solar and wind power, and then archive all the difficulties, as well as the sucesses, and do a real-time cost comparison, so that people (unless I surprised myself) could come to understand exactly how difficult it is to even break even with conventional alternative energies.

then, perhaps folks would "wake up" and stop trying to make others feel guilty about "green" technologies. Then, perhaps when our political pundits talked about "green" technologies, it wouldn't be quite so easy to portray it as a done deal, and perhaps some real changes could be made it research. I believe people will FLOCK to spend their hard-earned money on these technologies, WHEN it FINally becomes cost-effective.


Slightly off-topic, but related: Today my Bride and I are purchasing quite a bit of solar stuff. We know it's going to be a struggle for it to be cost-effective, however we have other reasons for doing it. I fully intend to document the process.

Set up a movie production company and make socially relevant films that might cause people to think. I doubt if I could actually make anyone think. Others have tried and it hasn't worked yet.

Perhaps socially relevant porn.

I would spend it selfishly and materialistically.

No, I'm not being sarcastic. I just don't care.
