Like it or not, the War on Terror fear campaign is working...citizens are handing in their civil liberties for an incorrectly perceived feeling of safety.


How can we establish the counter (and genuine) fear campaign ??


That is, effectively paint a picture of...

1) U.S. military in the middle east leading to the GROWTH of Al Queda and increased threat of additional terrorist attacks in U.S. cities

2) 1 Trillion in annual overseas military costs paid by printing money, leading to inflation and citizen's savings being worth less

3) Social entitlements leading to doubling and tripling of payroll taxes.

4) Real ID heading towards RFID tracking of citizen movement

5) NAFTA hiway leading to NAU, and unelected leaders forming our nation's laws

6) etc....


How can we connect the dots simply for the American Idol watching citizenry and give them a reason to vote for Freedom, Peace, and Prosperity ?


Ongoing food rationing will wake people up and we need to be ready with a message.

We've been trying. RP has been trying. We've all been sounding the alarms. Too many people are too fat and happy to believe anything is wrong. They're also too ignorant to understand the issues and too lazy to figure them out.

Sorry to be negative.

Here are articles (especially for conservatives) about how current policy hurts America and hands victory to the terrorists and extremists:

Many of us agree here, unfortunately, Ron Paul's statements during media appearances and debate points have gone over the heads of Joe and Jill America..

This war bill ad is the closest I've seen to bringing it home, making it simple and personal for the uninformed....

Well, a pro-active thing to do, among many many hundreds of options, is to join www.downsizeDC.org
It's really pretty amazing, and crazy simple. They recently had a push for a message to send to your representatives a message of "STOP. I'm not afraid of terrorists. Stop taking away my civil liberties, stop with the national I.D. nonsense, and enough of the Iraq war." I'm paraphrasing of course.

The message is not new, but downsizedc.org's methods are new. Once you register, you plug in your zip, or city/state and it automatically finds who your representatives are. When downsizedc.org sends you an update (which is almost every day), you can choose to reply (adding your own message too) and that very same reply is sent directly to your rep's inbox.
Sure, it's only an email campaign, but it's a start, and they've had some positive success in a short amount of time. Your local representatives NEVER hear from you, well, from most of you. If you make your voice heard and you let those bastards know, "I'm watching how you vote on this," it does make a difference.

how many people since 9/11 died from influenza? how many in car accidents? how many from terrorism?

The TRUTH is the opposite of darkness. The TRUTH today is as scarey as the lies in my honest opinion.

Your points Raystone are right on money. Now we need distribution.... spending money on national ads only makes the big guys richer. There are small papers locally that might be a good place to start.

I like your idea. I will compose an ad tomorrow and see about getting it published.:D
