If one of us (it don't gotta be me necessarily, but I'd be happy to volunteer) was interested in running for president, how would we build a campaign for them? Let's say we take advantage of the most modern and prolific media avenues. So of course, we build ourselves a website for the candidate. We put a bio page and a resume page together. We put a platforms page together, and we publish it. Now, we need to fund the campaign, and we need to advertise. We start by buying banners on popular websites that will sell political adspace. We get our candidate to participate in popular forums and chatrooms where he can get exposure. Now we need air time. So we have to buy adspace in Newspapers and radio/tv. Maybe we get a break by getting talkshow hosts to promote our candidate for free. It's all about networking our way to national levels. What kind of issues does our candidate promote? We pick ones we know like minded individuals are concerned about. Gun control, taxes, illegal immigrants, middle east, corruption (public and private sector), environment. Ah, now there's the rub. We can't put a president in office who's too controversial unless we elect a plurality of congressmen as well. Maybe that'd be better anyways. There's enough of us around to run for rep or senate that we could do this. Of course, our candidates would have to be unified on the main issues, but they could have other agendas that pertain to their region, so long as we don't get too conflicted. If we, the working middle class, could get a majority of congressmen elected, it wouldn't really matter who the pres was. If he tried vetoing us on the main issues, we'd steamroll him. It might be hard getting past all the special interest groups and their candidates, or the public welfare supported ones, but we could really do this if we wanted to. I bet I know at least a hundred people who feel more or less like I do. Now the problem, finding the right person. That's probably the toughest part. We will only really get one chance at this, so we can't pick a sellout. Then you figure we're all gonna have to pony up to support our candidates and their campaigns. That means time and money. So, who's willing to take our country back? The line starts here I suppose.
