Skip to comments.What Can We Do To Help Governor Palin Right Now? (buy the DVD)
Posted on 10/04/2011 8:00:49 AM PDT by sickoflibs
I cant wait to rush out tomorrow and buy my own DVD of The Undefeated Meanwhile, Sandra Peppers has some great ideas for hosting viewing parties and more. This is a do-it-yourself effort. Everybody can play a valuable role. As Todd Palin commented on the interview with Steve Bannon last night he was blown away at how much of Governor Palins record was covered, and covered well, in just a few short hours.
Guest Submission by Sandra Peppers
I know a lot of C4P peeps and Palinistas are disappointed and unhappy that Governor Palin has not announced her plans as of yet and quite a few are tense and frustrated and that is understandable. We have a completely grassroots campaign without a candidate for possibly another few weeks. People that support Mitt Romney or Barack Obama or Chris Christie or Rick Perry, etc. dont understand Sarah Palin supporters. They dont understand the deep commitment and feelings we have towards Governor Palin.
Some have called us nutty or freaks or other names. Remember I am the one that has had the dream of Sarah Palinspresidential inauguration for over 35 years how much nuttier can you get? That is because they dont understand the kinds of feelings that we have for her or why. Shoot some of us dont even know why we have the feelings we do about Sarah we just do! I think Sarah described one way when she was talking about how a Mama Grizzly feels about her cubs. We feel the same way about Sarah and more. Shes not just a politician to most of us. And the left and some on the right will NEVER understand that. Maybe some people felt this way about JFK, but that was before my time.
Sarah We are ready to jump in and start with the boots on the ground part. We are ready to get in the ring and start Round 1. We are engaged and want to get to work. We are ready to start making calls and makingsigns. WE are ready to knock on doors and tell people WHY Sarah Palin would make THE best choice for President of the United States of America in2012! But for the moment we have our muzzles on and we are impatiently waiting to be unleashed. We WILL wait for you because there IS no substitute. We will not settle or hold our noses again.
But there IS something that we can do RIGHT NOW! And it doesnt cost a lot of money.
The following are a few great ideas that WE can use RIGHT NOW to help Sarah whether or not she decides to throw her hat in the presidential ring:
The Undefeated comes out on DVD on Tuesday, October 4th! This is THE ultimate weapon we have in our arsenal and we will have the ability to use it in the next few days. Some of us have already DVRd it and those of us that have, can start even sooner. Buy as MANY copies of the DVD that you can buy. There are two different versions of The Undefeatedavailable. The Exclusive version that is ONLY available from Wal-Mart .and the Standardversion that is available from Wal-Mart and other locations like Amazon,etc. The difference between the Exclusive and Standard versions is theExclusive version has the CD/MP3 audio version of Governor Palins book Going Rogue. The Standardversion does not have the audio book.
Buy as many copies of the DVD that you can, even if thats only one or two. Even if you have only one copy you can still make a difference and havefun doing it. I bought 44 copies of the Exclusive version and six copies of the Standard version from Wal-Mart. The Exclusive version from Wal-Mart is not at this time limited in quantity purchased but the Standard version is limited to six copies per person. From Wal-Mart the Exclusive is $14.96 and the Standard is $12.96. The Standard version has free shipping as of today. I paid approximately $2.20 per DVD in both tax and shipping combined. For about a $100 investment you can get five of the Exclusive versions of the DVD including tax and shipping.
Once you have your DVDs then you can do a few things. Since I got mostly the Exclusive version I am going to take the CD out of thepackage from the DVD and I have a 100 of those old empty CD cases lying around collecting dust and separate some of the CDs and the DVDs. Put a label with YOUR name, email and phone number on the DVD/CD and then ALSO include on thelabel the O4P website, etc. At the bottom of this page I will have a templatethat you can copy and print out. Then loan them out to your friends and familyand neighbors!
I am going to be taking my stack of DVDs and CDs to my next local tea party meeting and loaning them out to the members of our group. Ive already got several people saying they want to borrow one. Please do not rent them out. When you take your DVDs to the meeting and yo uloan them out ask the person you are loaning it to if they know of someone else that might be interested in seeing the movie. If they do, then ask them to pass it on to them and have them return it to you at the next meeting. You can do this with ANY group you associate with. The Young Republicans or Womens groups or quilting bee or bowling team it doesnt have to be a tea party group.
Ask your group if you can have a viewing of the movie at the next meeting. Or form your own viewing party. Most restaurants have a back room area that they hold baby showers and different kinds of small events in. Find out what you can do to have a viewing party at a local restaurant or pizza parlor. You can order a variety of pizzas or appetizers and drinks and then divide the cost among the viewers. This kind of thing is actually better that Sarah ISNT an announced candidate. Once Sarah announces you cant have a viewing party like this without FEC rules. So its important to do this kind of thing sooner rather than later.
Have a small viewing party in your own home if you feel comfortable doing that. Have kind of a potluck deal or dessert sampling or wine orbeer tasting and view the movie together. This kind of event is better if you know the people you are inviting, of course. You can do invitations and havethem bring someone new kind of like how they used to do Tupperware Parties or Pampered Chef and those kinds of things. There is a LOT of ideas online for these kinds of things.
If you own a business and have a TV in your shop, put the DVD in and let it go throughout the day. Of course not all businesses or locations wouldbe right for this kind of thing. But if you have maybe an auto shop in aconservative state that has a TV in the waiting room why not play the PGversion of the movie? Now I wouldnt run the unrated version in adoctors office in Berkeleybut I think you can judge whether or not its appropriate for your business.
Ask your local beauty salon or day spa to play the movie for the day or while youre in there. Ladies its the perfect length movie for highlights!!! The holidays are coming up and people will be having get-togethers. Whether good or bad Sarah Palin is ALWAYS a conversation starter in almost ANY group and it is OUR job to turn the conversation around to her strengths and set the record straight.
Give the separated audio book CD/MP3 to a commuter friend someone that doesnt have the time to actually read her book but spends a lot of time in traffic or on the road. Have them pass it on at work. By dividing the CD from the movie you can reach twice the number of people. Bring the audio book to the gym and give it to your workout buddies. The CD/MP3 can be given to just about anybody.
Take pictures of your event and submit them to your O4P group or to C4P or one of the other Palin support websites. My O4P state coordinator, Thomas, is always telling us to take pictures for posting online because if its not on the internet it didnt happen.
Make your own yard signs and put them in your yard and ask your friends and neighbors if you can put a sign in their yard. Palin 2012 or make up your own sign. The more homemade they are the better! One of the frequent posters here at C4P, John McKenna will give you a free Sarah Palin bumper sticker if you send him a self-addressed-stamped-envelope and you go to his website.
Anything we do to help Governor Sarah Palin helps us. Its an investment to me. And the libs and establishment GOP will laugh but its an investment in the future of our country. We KNOW shes not owned by ANYBODY! Not a title like REPUBLICAN and all the dues she wont pay there. We KNOW what shes going to do on the economy! We KNOW that she is NOT going to be bought by any corporations! And because she isnt going to be financed by these big donors and bundlers that Rick Perry and Chris Christie and Barack Obama have been talking to that leaves US! We the People! We dont need to wait for Governor Palin to announce anything. Lets send Governor Palin a message by showing her how ready WE are!
Do you have any ideas on how to help now? Please post them in thecomments section or feel free to email me at Org4PalinSolano@yahoo.com.
Here is a template of what you can tape onto your copy of TheUndefeated or Going Rogue audio book, or you can make you rown. Just copy and paste this into a Word Document or other word processing program.
Organize 4 Palin is strictly a grassroots organization of volunteers. This DVD was NOT paid for by a billionaire or financed by a corporation. I paid for this DVD or CD myself because I believe that Sarah Palins message is worth listening to and it is important to me to set the record straight. So PLEASE return this DVD or CD to me so that I can pass it on to another friend. Thank you!
Opinion polls about a non-candidate are irrelevant.
Spot on! Notice how the normal PDS's who invade these threads cannot refute her conservative positions, or cannot point to any corruption in her past? These people have a over-the-top bias against her that can only be explained by their own considerable and obvious prejudices.
Next time stock up on (incandescent ) 100W light bulbs. Those will be hard to come by. The movie will eventually show up on cable movie stations. But the price/value of these bulbs will being going up in the next few years as then wont be made in the US anymore.
WTc, if you have access to contracts between Bannon and Palin, please feel free to share that knowledge with the rest of the class. But I think you have nothing but your own dark cynicism to guide you, as usual, so I will not hold my breath waiting for an answer based on fact.
So basically you’re calling your fellow freepers, people who share your values (which would have to include a certain amount of rational thought) stupid? Nice. The fact is, right now the majority aren’t even paying attention. That we are, regardless of who we support, shows that Palin supporters are just as concerned about the country as everyone else here. Most of us think she’ll run, some are unsure but there’s plenty of time to rally around someone else should she decide not to run. Enthusiasm is a good thing.
You do the same you creep.
You know, I hope you aren’t teaching your grandchildren the behavior you’re exhibiting here. Going on threads for the only purpose of taking digs at people is not nice. Were you to do that on a school playground you’d be hauled away. At this point everyone knows who we all support at this point in time. Most of us will have to choose someone else (not just Palin supporters, all of us) because the field will be whittled down to one. It might not be your choice or mine. So what purpose does it serve? It’s not like anyone has anything new to say. It’s the same old digs time after time after time. Just give it a rest. I bet you teach your grandchildren, as I do to mine, “do unto others...” After seeing you on countless Palin threads doing exactly what you’re doing perhaps you should practice it as well.
Palin didn’t allege. Bannon did. He’s been emphatic that she had nothing to do with it. Even her voice overs were from her reading her audiobook. Since she campaigned pretty hard for so many this last election I don’t think she thinks they’re all corrupt. In her speeches she talks about a specific kind of politician (entrenched, crony capitalist like the one occupying the white house).
“then the Sarah Palin myth will be fully exposed”
You’re kinda correct, but that hasn’t happened yet.
A naive attorney...gotta love it.
This whole thing is about selling DVDs, not getting the Trademark to announce.
Same thing with the Toddster going on radio a few days ago.....all about selling DVDs.
And only a fool would believe that none of the profit is going to the palins.
I’d hope that human nature would include enough respect for their fellow man to not come into their conversation (or thread as it may be) and insult them. Supposedly we’re NOT conservative, shouldn’t have an ideology (but evidently do, according to you & that’s a bad thing), that we aren’t living in reality (”let’s pretend”) as if we all don’t know she might not run...though I think she will. We’re well aware that we’ll coalesce around another candidate...but it’s the same for most of us because only one person will get the nomination. Depending on how things shake out some of us will have thrown our support behind more than one candidate.
If you’re going to decide who is a conservative and who isn’t and insult those who don’t fit into whatever definition you’ve chosen can you do it elsewhere? It’s legitimate to discuss reasons you think she may/may not be running and even her policy positions but it serves no purpose to come on a thread of supporters (whether you think they’re “cultists” or not) and carry on a conversation that basically expresses how wrong they are, how they can’t possibly have conservative values, and how much better you are (if you don’t think that’s the message you’re giving reread your post.)
It’s getting to the point where I cringe when I come here every morning to see what’s going on in the country, including news about candidates and others who may/may not jump in because I know I’m going to scroll down and read a bunch of insults. Granted, I could decide not to read the comments but often people provide a wealth of information (about myriad topics) in the posts including links to other resources. A little rivalry between supporters makes primary season fun, this constant barrage is just downright arrogant.
Prove it. You made the charge, you research it, you prove it! Honestly, you’ve called everyone who doesn’t believe she’s getting a cut “fools”. You have the obligation to prove you’re right and we’re wrong. Otherwise I think you owe people an apology. I’m serious, prove this or keep it out of the conversation. Rumor and innuendo is for DU.
Let’s see that makes about 9 or 10 posts so far on this
thread alone...a little obsessed aren’t we.
We get it...you have made it clear you are anti-Palin-for-POTUS.
Go find another thread...preferably not a Palin one, since
you claim and state you have no interest. You anti-Palin
people make me laugh...if it was not for you and the media
hanging on her every word or deed she would have dropped off
the radar by now.
Rarely if ever can I find a comment in print, on the radio
or TV that is not somehow trying to deride Palin in some
form or another.
I appreciate being directed to the article by Kirk. However, it appears to me he has erected a straw man which he can then supplant with his own unique contributions. Put short, the dictionary supports my application of the term “ideology” to conservatism. The mere fact that conservative ideas occupy a higher layer of idea formation than some contemporary issues does not make them less any less a system of ideas.
Kirk indeed listed several beliefs that do constitute ideas that been constant over time, and were central to creating the organic documents of our founding. In other words, imperfect as it may be, there is a body of literature that expresses conservative dogma, one of Kirk’s hypothetical requirements for findiing “ideology.” Thus, even under his own over-narrow definition, conservatism still ends up being an ideology.
And for me, I say good. I have no problem identifying with a specific set of ideas I can call home as a conservative. Kirk’s book, “The Conservative Mind,” IIRC, was panned by some of our own movement conservatives as an attempt to reengineering the term “conservative” into a more moderate mold. I think, for example, Romney could score well on most of those points. I’m not sure that’s a good thing.
Anyway, thanks for the link. It does help me understand where some of this has been coming from.
Throwing another tea leaf into the cup for people to argue about:
The palintv.com site has a splash page up saying “Site undergoing major overhaul—We will be back by end of October—Sorry for the inconvenience”
It obviously means she’s running/not running/has a plan/is just in it for the money/whatever, whatever/lather, rinse, repeat. . .
We now return you to your regularly scheduled tedious internecine sniping . . .
An attorney who really likes facts when making his mind up about something. I know that facts have never been an impediment for you, bless your heart.
“So if she wants a piece of this then jump in and tell what you would do”
You make a lot of sense. Why wouldn’t Palin want to jump headlong into this tornado of events. We truly need her ideas and her clear, inspirational way of expressing them.
