What can I do to help the Conservative cause?

[tweetmeme source=AlinskyDefeater only_single=false]
During the 2008 election the Obama campaign staff got thousands of volunteers to help promote him and his ideas online. They also jumped on every perceived misrepresentation of their candidate’s postion.

How did they do this? They used a number of methods including blogs, but one of their simplest and most effective methods was to constantly look for relevant postings and make comments. Many times they would stay on a single site for hours fighting for Obama. Yes, it was irritating, but it was effective.

Admittedly, all of this was before twitter exploded, but we should not miss our opportunity to bring the fight to every possible arena. As Alinsky said, “Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose”.

Different tactics and actions- don’t limit yourself to twitter. You can be very effective by putting thoughtful comments on sites that present a Liberal position. I would encourage you to add comments here if you know of sites where this method can be used effectively.

To get you started, here are a couple: Newsweek and FiveThirtyEight.com

    You are Right On! As you can see, my “commentor” name is aynrand4freedom. When I have time, I purposely read through comments on the Huffington Post, for example, to identify and CRUSH left wing rhetoric. Every Freedom Loving American needs to do the same.
