Outreach Effort to harness 2014 congressional discontent

Postby d3teur » Sun Oct 13, 2013 1:23 am

This is a working forum. It will be messy. I request that the moderator let it be messy.

Okay everybody. This is it. Congressional approval is at 5%. Now is possibly the best time to explain to people the reason why congress is horrible and provide a solution that may possibly keep our country going for another century or two. Not to be melodramatic or anything.

We all know the reasons, so I won't go into it, I'll just go into the plan.

Has anyone seen an RSA video animation?

Before you read the rest of the post, go ahead and watch the video. Pay attention to how well you're paying attention.

I find they are great. It takes a great talk to make a good RSA video, but the drawing really helps people pay attention.

1. so, step one, as mentioned by JEQuidam, is to make some videos. I suggest making them in the style of the RSA. I will go through the effort of making the videos (drawing surface and a camera and a tripod. I can do that). I just need help with the narrations. Once we finalize the narrations, I will draft a storyboard, and we'll make the thing.

2. Buy Y435REPS.com. If I don't here back from somebody in this phorum stepping up and making this happen, I'll go ahead and do it.

3. Build the Y435REPS.com website. Main content is the video animation descriptions of the plan. The thirty-thousand.org website is an amazing aggregate of information, but it is too much for the casually interested citizen. We need a site that looks like a tea party site, or the moveon site. Y435REPS will be that site.

4. Make Y435REPS.com stickers. Ask visitors of this phorum to put them everywhere they can. We can probably pool together the <1000$ required for the stickers, or we can do a kickstarter. The kickstarter effort may also be a good way to get the message out. Anyhoo, whoever steps up, we'll send you stickers.

Also, my gut tells me there are a lot of lurkers on these phorums (thousands of views but 3 posts? who are these lurkers?)


Okay, so actionable points right now are:
someone buy Y435REPS.com
goto
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gMk ... sp=sharing

that should get you to a google doc. Please check the document, make any edits. (this is mostly directed to JEquidam, everyone else is free to access) This will be the narration for the RSA style animation video. If we need to move to a dropbox format, I am prepared for that.



Expansionism will become a movement.

Lets do this.

Ah, I forgot that apportionment.us already made videos. Hrm, they are not as concise as they need to be. I might be able to utilize them.

Okay, the website is up. http://www.Y435REPS.US is active.

If you want to start printing stickers, here are links to the images.

The sticker was designed for 8.5" X 1.375"

This sticker was designed for 8.5" X 2.75"

123stickers.com has a pretty cheap service. I will try and make the kickstarter video tomorrow.
