My first campaign I worked on before I could vote years back was for Ron Paul. He was no different back then than he is now. The guy has never changed and never will. With that said the idea of him being president is kind of scary:)
I've worked on all sorts of local campaigns. City council, county commissioner, etc. Have built web sites for them and even for a buddy running for congress.
I like her "poster". It would be cool on a web page with every element being a hyperlink to underlying content. IE: You click on "experience" and a page with her past experience comes up, etc. As far as a campaign poster though? Too busy. Posters and campaign signs should be short, sweet and have the name and position in the biggest letters possible. And be red, white and blue.
I see she is going to be in 10th grade. Something using that number might be cool. "Maggie - A Perfect Ten", "Maggie - #10!", "Maggie - Vote Her In - She is Running for 10!", "Maggie - Vote Her In for 10!" Or, maybe not:)
You could do all sorts of things. Setup a text number on her poster. Something like "TEXT YOUR SUPPORT TO 12345" and have some kind of response that shows a short list of her positions or ideas. Kids like that kind of stuff. Then you have their numbers so you can "remind" them who to vote for and when. Or push them to a Facebook page or whatever.
Always campaign like you are losing and are going to lose but act like you are winning or going to win. And never forget that all politics is bare knuckled WAR! We forgot that in this country. The Republicans have especially after the last election. What they should be doing is ripping the throats out of the Democrats (no literally). Never give an inch. Take the offensive and be aggressive with a smile. If I was in charge I'd have every Republican and Tea Party person in Congress or running for any position to sit in a room and watch NJ Chris Christie videos. Not for what he says but how he says it. The style and attitude.
I predict that we are going to see more politicans that are successful because they appear to be "heroic". Because they do not back down while pointing out how powerful their opposition is on certain topics. Public employees and unions are ripe for this. Simply because they are big, powerful and grossly overpaid. They are the new "wealthy" or what Obama calls "people making over $250,000".
America is swinging harder and harder to the right. This movement is being pushed not by the supposed "haves vs have nots" but by the "works vs works nots". The "works" as I call them are a big and powerful group and they are tired of their pockets being picked.
Oops... Sorry for the rant...
It’s not a rant. The link thing would be cool to do, but we’re not doing a web page. Great idea! Like the text stuff, too. Hmmmm. Daughter gets home in an hour. Can’t wait to show her all the ideas...and the funny tips!
