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”?

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.

To get everyone started, here is a site that has email adresses of all the media outlets, congress, etc.. Just cut and paste into your email address. Put in in the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy ), that way the recipient only sees one address - theirs. If someone receives one that has 50 email addresses on it, they consider it spam and don't read. This is an easy way to mass email.

Media Email

But we need to organize an extensive listing of links and post them in our threads,as many times as needed.We need to inundate friendly media and fellow web sites,it has to be a concerted and constant effort not just sporadic.There are cracks forming in the MSM armor and nows the time to exploit them.

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.

The PUMAs are working very hard for the McCain team.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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!

Well so far this is ad hoc but we need to start somewhere.For now I`m trying to track down the subject for today`s Hannity`s America segment.The other day I heard him say that he would have an hour long special on Obummer`s dubious friends,Wright,Ayers, and the lot.This along with the attacks by our Alaskan pitbull (I wish she was our POTUS candidate) are starting to make cracks in the MSM`s Obummer mania media armor,its our time to start prying them open to the light of day.That woman`s undaunted determination inspite of McCain`s bewildering and infuriating silence is inspiring,we need to back her up.
