Jim Robinson Has Given Us Permission to start a Digg page

Posted on 10/28/2008 1:18:41 PM PDT by GodGunsGuts

For the Mods re: Digg campaign:

Via Freepmail: "Go for it! Thanks, Jim"

This page will be kept at the top of "Breaking News"

What we want to do is either post new Digg articles/videos, or identify already existing Digg articles/videos, that tell the REAL STORY of Barack "the socialist revolutionary" Obama. Let's come up with a TOP 5 articles and a TOP 5 videos list and use FReeper power to Digg them to the top so that non-FReepers too become aware of the most dangerous presidential candidate in our nation's history!

Please place all Digg suggestions in the threads. DO NOT PROVIDE LINKS TO NON DIGG ARTICLES AND VIDEOS. IF YOU WANT YOUR ARICLE OR VIDEO TO BE CONSIDERED, PUT IT ON DIGG FIRST AND THEN PROVIDE THE LINK.

Once the top five of each has been identified, let's all sign up over at Digg and DIGG THESE LINKS TO THE TOP!!! Then FReepmail, email, and round up people from every conservative forum you can think of and encourage them to do the same!

Please place your Digg suggestions below. Once we have settled on the initial five articles and five videos, a new post with the links will appear at the top of "Breaking News" and will be kept there!!! Remember, taken together, these links need to tell a story.

So let's get off our rear-ends, bypass the MSM, and get the vote out people!!!

only way this will work is if we make an internal digg ping list , otherwise the lurker dems will take the link and take it to their base and bury it.

folks who are non-believers, wake up, the new media is here....either adapt or stay silo’ed with our messaging.

You’re not quoting me. You’re quoting someone else.
How about learning to use FR first before pushing another m.o.?

Once you digg up a few conservative articles, it begins "recommending" articles for you based on your interests. You will find plenty of conservative articles then.

Here are a few from my digg history to get you started:

1

2

3

4

5

I FReepmailed Jim Robinson, explained this idea to him, and he gave it the thumbs up. If you would like, I would be glad to forward the his FReepmail to you.

There are a lot of conservatives there, it’s just they are outnumbered by the libs.

And for all those on FR who swear search doesn't work...

1) Never search a complete (or full) source title.

2) Click on the Articles tab

3) select the most unique word in the title of the source article you want to post.

4) enter that word (or two) alone in the 'search' box, and select 'By title, and hit 'Search'

4a) You can use a direct URL search like this:
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/search?m=all;o=time;s=(your unique words)

5) this will find a related or duplicate 99% of the time.

You are right the 401k thing HAS to get more traction, in the middle of this plan they WILL keep 50% of our retirement if we die..... basically a 50% death tax and no one will touch this subject.

I read (not registered to post) the hillaryclinton site and they digg all the important articles and link the article and the digg link on all new articles.

Digg is your website GodGunsGuts? I didn't realize that was you on the cover of Business Week two years ago!

Believe me, everyone: Digg doesn't need our traffic. It is very high in traffic rankings.

This idea is much more advantageous for bringing new people into the conservative movement and to FR and in combating liberal bias than it is to Digg. If you don't think so, you do not understand it.

Many of us on Digg have been trying to get conservative articles in front of eyeballs for a long, long time. If we want to grow conservatism, it involves getting others to consider the conservative message.

We wonder why we have all this great anti-Obama information on FR and it never makes it into the mainstream. One reason is that we resist using new media to push it into the mainstream. We push it to each other fine. That's great if we want to stay at 50.1% every election and bite our nails every two years.

Where the hell did all these Mccain supporting diggers come from?

http://digg.com/2008_us_elections/Obama_s_Four_Tax_Increases_for_People_Earning_Under_250K

As you can see, the LibTards don't like it that we have started to screw with them over on Digg. Which means of course that is good and any day that a LibTard can be screwed with and exposed, is a good day.

Have now been through 5 DIGGIT PAGES without finding a single genuine conservative perspective article to DIGG.

I’ve ‘buried’ about 20 or so outrageously distorted fawning OBUMMA articles.

Sheesh.

As I said, Jim Robinson recognized the value of this idea and signed off on it. After I explained it to him, here is his exact reply:

Go for it!

Thanks,

Jim

Also, I think Franglog sums just how powerful this tool can be for FR. Not only that, if you put FR links on Digg, their community will be coming HERE to read them—GGG

Here is Franklog’s reply:

I see. I don't have any objection to it if it's all right with Jim Robinson. It's just my belief that Free Republic is the best forum for promoting conservative views and conservative candidates.

WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

I just finished going through the 100th page at DIGGIT

with about 14-16 or so articles per page . . .

Almost every page had one or more Obumma fawning articles.

Anything about our side was about how evil, stupid, etc. our Champions were.

A hideous experience.

We ought to be able to alter that somehow. We are enough in numbers.

yah, thats the interesting part of this 410k to gra-they keep half. curious about taxes on the 401k-would the heirs have to pay a death tax too? that would leave loved ones less than half! now is a good time to run with this because his socialism is out there and a hot topic, this stokes the flames and makes it PERSONAL! what i dont understand (without a tin foil hat) is why in july he was purposing it (or sooner) when supposedly it is in reaction in part to the mtg. crisis and failing retirement accounts!

...Millions of people frequent this site. ...

or is it "10,000 liberals frequent this site tens of thousands of times each"? If Digg is already a looney DU site, is it worth the effort? As you can see most of us don't digg digg. (any more than DU).
