Skip to comments.Do we need a freeper minutemen`s squad?
Posted on 10/04/2008 8:02:24 PM PDT by nomad
I`ll keep this brief.I think we need a freeper minutemens squad that`ll be ready to respond to any october suprises,ours or their`s.We need freepers willing to compile and share a listing of links to freindly media,talk radio,Fox Cable,web sites and anyone who`ll listen(individuals excluded).When our side hits,we respond with support.When the Rats hit we counter with facts and criticism.What do you,my fellow freepers,think of the idea?Comments,both pro and against are welcome.
Reporting for duty
I’m in! If there’s a list...put me on it!;)
You can certainly include me.
With Democrat Presidential candidates there is often an established pattern of financial malfeasances, overt criminality or sexual dalliances. Sometimes there is all three — they just can’t help themselves: it’s hard to be good when one is a Democrat.
They lurk out there, waiting to pounce. Perhaps they wait to pounce on yon candidate improbably yclept Barack Hussein Obama...
...problem is, they haven’t been found. Yet. Maybe this is a worthy mission for minutemen, too?
You use uppercase for “Rats” but lowercase for “freepers”?
Stupid question,but how do you start one(ping lists)?I`m not very computer savy but I`M FIGHTING FREAKIN MAD!WE NEED TO SUPPORT SARA,if McCain won`t then someone needs to!
count me in and add me to the list, Nomad, you’re now a Ping Team Leader. I nominate you. Anyone second this? :oP
I wrote this in a hurry,probably miss spelled as well.
> You use uppercase for Rats but lowercase for freepers?
Perhaps he intends for the freeper minutemen to use cover/concealment, keeping their heads down?
“When our side hits,we respond with support.When the Rats hit we counter with facts and criticism.”
DANG! I guess I am mistaken, but thought that’s precisely what we do here.
Does anyone know how to start a ping list?
You just name it the ‘Freeper Minuteman Squad’.....keep a list of names .....then ping everyone by putting the names in the ‘To;’ box on the ‘post reply’ page when theres something we need to jump on....
Already started, in my special area of interest. I want the American people to know Obama defended infanticide of born alive infants. I want it to BE the October surprise. So count me in, nomad ...
Incidentally, I’m already compiling material to use explaining the issue of the BAIPA Obama fought against in IL.
This is a great idea. We always know first anyway.
Please add me.
I`ve seen a lot of stuff you`ve posted,are you good with computers?We need a good “geek” to pitch in.
Post #13 has the contacts for media - tv, radio, etc..
A ping list is easy.
Just keep a list of the members separated by a semicolon.
When you want to ping the list, just do a reply as normal and cut and paste your list in the "To:" box on the reply form.
Hope this helps.
No, I’m a real novice.
You are inviting scrutiny by people you don’t want to know. Something like this is best done in the fog. Don’t count me in.
I seem to remember a site that would give you your congress-critters` name and contact#s with just the state and zipcode,someone posted the link during the 2004 election cycle.
Isn’t this what we already do? Cf. Rathergate.
The PUMAs are working very hard for the McCain team.
Gotcha! Good Point. I have a disorganized collection of links regarding a couple of topics I’ll have to go through and get organized so I can participate and respond appropriately.
The problem I have noticed with a lot of Congressmans sites is that they don’t receive regular email. You have to go on their page and send it through their page. Before you are allowed to do that, you have to enter your zipcode. If it detects that you are not from their district, then it doesn’t let you send.
Yes,but we need to hammer them now.The fox news report on fannie and freddie was the turning point.For the first time someone has actually mentioned the rat`s responsibility for stopping the attempts at reform,and the donations to Dodd and Obama.Tomorrow Hannity launchs his own piece,will he go even further?You know the MSM will not give it the light of day,we and others need to.
Wow,you don`t mess around.
Great idea! Please put on the list. If I can help, I will! : )
Thanks. I hope it’s useful. I’m not a PUMA and not a member of that site (they have closed new registrations), but I do check it frequently to see what’s going on. They have a wealth of ammo on Obama. Check it out for yourself. I find it encouraging to go there and see that there are some Dems who are waking up to what their party has become and are doing something about it.
Great idea. Don’t forget “twitter”, it’s a great way to still communicate when you can’t get to a computer. I set up an account real quick at twitter.com/freerepublic . (if the folks at Free Republic are interested in managing or having me do it, let me know)
I’ll do whatever I can. Add me to your list of contacts.
There is probably no one better at social networking than the grassroots Democrats. While conservatives dominate talk radio, liberals dominate the Internet social Networks.
Conservatives need to learn to play better in this new environment. It’s the new way of branding, getting your message out and raising funds.
They’re really good at it and we aren’t. I hope what you’re talking about is becoming better at getting the conservative message out. How many people a day do think read Digg vs.listening to Rush or Hannity?
The problem is conservatives need to be ‘proactive’ in getting their message out, not ‘reactive.
I hope you see my point.
Count me in and send me details in mail. I will contribute writing abilities if it will help.
Pray for W, McCuda and Our Trops
I can put together a project management website up in relatively short order if you all are serious—I’m a web developer.
This is exactly the type of thing I think we should do.
Someone contact me if you need me.
List of newspaper email addresses by state.
Good advice from the thread:
Please keep in mind that most newspapers request that letters be 200 to 250 words or less before they will publish them. A name, address, and telephone number must be included. They will likely call you to verify that you wrote the letter. Although, I have also been asked to verify via e-mail from some newspapers. If they decide to print the letter or article, they will not publish the address or telephone.
Also, if concentrating on "swing states", don't forget to include the border state's newspapers. For instance, people like myself, who live near a border state, will possibly read the neighboring city in another state's newspaper.

I’m your huckleberry.
Feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
You can also find me at rescutechslive.com — I own it.
Sent you a freep-mail,thanks.
It's a question of hubris vs. humility. :)
Good question nomad.
I needed a day to ponder your question because
my first reaction is that Free Republic already
fulfills the role of a conservative first
response team to counter anti-American media.
However... Like the bikers who protect military
funerals, we need to find a way to mobilize our
forces to protect the voting process ... to
ensure it against fraud wherever we can.
I have been praying for God to send His heavenly
army to every polling place. Now I need to ask
God to thwart the problems in Ohio with early voting.
Father in heaven... be our defense!!! In Jesus name!
Will help if there is a team.
I’ll second nomad! I too am fighting mad because if we get beat it will be to voter fraud in Ohio, Detroit, St louis and Milwaukee as usual, Probably Chicago more then ever and at every lib institution of standard and higher Ed.
