MODS: Permission Granted by Jim Robinson
Calling all FReepers, calling all FReepers...testing, testing!!!
In an effort to take our message to the people, Jim Robinson has agreed to allow us to test getting our message out to the Digg news/discussion board (one of the largest in the country). What follows are a number of articles and videos that all link back to FreeRepublic via Digg. Please click on each link below, sign in (or sign up if you haven't done so already), and Digg these articles to the top by pressing the Digg icon on the left side of the screen (that is, after each link below takes you to the Digg site).
Again, this is just a test to see how high we can bump up our articles over there using our combined FreeperPower!
Now let's get out the vote!!!
Ayers Weathermen planned reeducation; genocide
Black Pastor Can't Support Barack Obama Because He's Extreme on Abortion
Democrats Contemplate Abolishing 401(k) Tax Breaks
Hannitys America: Ten Reasons Not To Vote for Obama
Obama shows contempt for the US constituiton
New McCain ad hits Obama on his socialist redistribution comments
Obama raised $1 million for foreign thug's election
Obama: I dont believe people should be able to own guns.
Ok, I am in...lets get ‘er done!
How often can we do this? It is a daily thing?
Click each link and then click the Digg icon for each article. The more Digg votes each article/video gets, the more exposure it gets on Digg.com, and the more people learn about the ObamaNation (and let’s not forget, they will be directed back to FreeRepublic to read the article or watch the video :o)!
Mine are all done. Can i do it tomorrow too? Is that how it works?
How about a working vacation for 2-3 days in Pennsylvania, Saturday through Sunday?
Pennsylvanias nice. Lovely foliage this time of year. And its filled with racists and bitter clingy people with guns and Bibles, so you should fit right in.
Its not that hard. And besides, you can go out and take over bars with your fellow morons after seven. Then maybe go out in your Ford trucks and run down homosexuals.
This is Sort of What I Mean By the GOP Getting on the Stick: Seriously, if the GOP gave me a hotel room and transportation, Id do this. Now, Im not a celebrity, but I do have readers who might decide to come along with the AoSHQ crew if we were all, say, knocking on doors in Bucks County or wherever. If theres a social thing afterwards.
There are a lot of bloggers people would sign up for. Jeff Goldstein in Colorado, for example, and all of his readers heading out to get out the vote, then having drinks afterwards. Captain Ed in Minnesota. The Red Staters in Virginia. Iowahawk, wherever he lives.
Allah on his couch, yelling at empty bottles of Jack Daniels that they just dont get it.
Door to door during the day, blog party at night. People are more willing to shell out bucks for a good cause if its not merely work, but a bit of fun too. Combination GOTV and meet-up.
I mean, these are trivial expenses for the RNC. Id pay myself but I dont pay my way for stuff like this anymore Im dirt poor as it is and I cant afford to book hotels and planes for this sort of thing.
Its too late now, of course.
Swing State Lodgings? Some readers are asking if anyone can put them up for a weekend to do this.
If youre in a swing state, have a spare bed, and can sleep through the sounds of reckless masturbation coming from the rumpus room all night, maybe say so.
Ohio Canvassers? Email me if you have any intent; a reader wants you to email him. I dont know if its about getting together to go in groups or lodging. Or him abducting you and selling you into forcible Thai prostitution.
Its going to be cool and fun, no matter which one.
Subject line Ohio Canvass so I can search easily, thank you.
New York to PA Buses, Free:
Show your Support for John McCain in the Keystone State
McCain-Palin Volunteer Buses will leave from outside Penn Station, along West 31st Street right before Eighth Avenue at 9am next Saturday and Sunday, so long as there are enough volunteers to fill a bus.
The bus will return to Penn Station from Scranton around 8:30pm each evening.
Volunteers should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org each week by Thursday at noon with their name, phone number and the days they can travel.
The Democrats for McCain Victory office in Scranton is located at 420 North Main Street, Scranton, PA 18504. The phone number there is 570-951-9923.
The Republican McCain Victory office in Scranton is located at 430 Lackawanna Avenue, Scranton, PA 18503.
Dont think of it as bus.
Think of it as a sixteen-wheel rolling putsch-wagon.
Caifornia Cavalry: Buses leaving from Torrance, Burbank, Newport Beach, Sacramento and San Diego for Nevada, to canvas there.
Im told dress is BCPO (business casual, pants optional).
Arizona to New Mexico:
Call the McCain HQ in Phoenix at 602-334-4440. Bus leaves Friday through Monday to New Mexico. FREE hotel.
For now, we are just testing it out to see how successful we can be on the Digg forum. The Demorats and the Commies have had their way on that forum for too long! In the end, I would imagine we will have a special keyword area where FReepers post articles and videos on forums that allow us to use our numbers to bumb them to the top. Digg is just one forum, there’s Yahoo’s buzz, and God only knows what else!
Gettin it done, yeehahhh!
Dugg ‘em all!
PS Think of Digg om tje same way as FReeping a poll. You only get one shot at bumping up each article/video...UNLESS of course you have multiple email addresses d:op
that was easy. digg and bingo finished.
only problem is DUmmies lurk here and will grab the link and bury.
this is a thread that should be visible to only freepers.
Mods, is that possible with this website’s functionality
My digging is done.
Thank you!...and spread the word!!! The FreeRepublic is on the march!!!!
Thank you...and tell a FRiend!!!!
it needs to be only visible to freepers....that way +1 freeper digg does not get offset by lurking dems..
mods help us! :D
Interesting project. Taking the facts to the people who need to hear them. Don’t forgot to answer any questions that appear on Digg.
They have been dug! Let’s go FReepers....digg digg!!
I will digg them all again tomorrow several times, the fight is on people!!
I’m on board!
That is a battle we will have to fight. In the meantime, let’s get out the vote before they figure out what to do about our new offensive!!!
I believe you have to have multiple email addresses to Digg more than once. But no matter, hopefully Jim and the mods will see the value in this, and will create a special keyword area where we can all post links asking FReepers to bump links to the top on a variety of forums.
Okay, I dugg a few articles and checked to see who dugg, but my name was not listed. Does it take awhile or did it not work? I registered first, as directed.
Or perhaps there could be a permanent “articles to digg” link at the top of the Latest Posts page?
Why was this thread pulled from Breaking News. As I said, Jim Robinson gave us permission to test our ability to get our message out to the people via forums like Digg. All the links I posted lead back to FR, which will only boost FR’s exposure on the Net. What’s going on? FReepers are really excited about this! Let’s get the truth out about ObamaNation while there’s still time!!!
That’s the hope. I was thinking perhaps we could create a “popular key word” area that allows FReepers to bump FR links to the top on other forums, such as Digg. The Left is way ahead of us on this front...but not for long!
Or a ping list?
I think it would be better just to have a general area where FReepers can go to bump FR links to the top on other forums. That way we aren’t just preaching to the choir, but are going on the offensive, building our movement, and bringing new people into FR.
Dugg! Please add me to your ping list.
I dugg all of them.
Again, why was this pulled from Breaking News? FReepers are very excited about this and Jim Robinson specifically gave us permission to test this out. Here’s the FReepmail by Jim Robinson giving us permission (check my FReepmail if you doubt me):
Go for it!
Awesome! Be sure and spread the word! FR is on the move!!!
Actually, Freerepublic is way bigger than digg.
Infact, digg was nothing before Worldnetdaily allowed them to tag along.
Hey we need more to digg it!!! They are on to us...leave a good comment or 2.
Okay. However, if the mods don’t put this thread back up in Breaking News, we aren’t going to have the numbers to make a significant difference. Oh well.
The other thread (”Jim Robinson Has Given Us Permission to start a Digg page”) is still in Breaking news.
It already has 4,938+ views.
(This one only has 554+ views)
The articles have around 50 digs each.
If this thread could get the exposure that the other one is getting, we could make a big impact.
Jim: Any thoughts?
Perhaps put a link to this thread in the top of the other one?
Thanks for the links. Consider them dugg.
DIGGed ‘em all. You should start a ping list of FReepers who are interested in helping with this. Put me on it, please.
Dugg, good buddy!
Dugg em all.
