Your ideas make a difference

posted by Awilson on October 9, 2007 - 2:03pm

Over the past week, I have given several ideas of what we can each do to get active in our local communities and online to help Unity08 reach its goals to relight America's torch.  See those blogs here, here, here, and here.
I have several others, but I'm interested in what you think.  Have a great idea?  Let us know:

  • Step  One:  Outline your idea of something simple a Unity08 member can do to help Unity08 build its membership, raise its profile, and get on the ballot.  Use the ideas from the other blog postings  for some starting points.
  • Step Two:  Give it a snazzy name that reflects on American history and spirit, especially if you can use a local hero or event.  You can even use current Americans, like Steve Jobs or Sergey Brinn and Larry Page (aka The Google Guys) to show how otherwise ordinary people shaped American life and history.
  • Step Three:  Post it on the blog below.  Share your ideas and leave feedback for others.  Vote Up your favorites.

One example of the enterprising spirit of our membership: Several of our most active bloggers began their own unity wiki to discuss the issues they cared about and wanted on the New American Agenda.  When we told them we were planning on adding a wiki to our website within a few months, they just couldn't wait and started their own.  Go join their conversation at unity-usa.org.  You can also voice your opinion here on our website in our Shoutbox.

While the elections are still more than a year away, it's still not too early to winnow the potential candidates for the Unity ticket.

Among those would be several who have withdrawn from consideration, those running who will doubtlessly lose and those we would like to see run.

Among them would be Al Gore, Ron Paul, Chuck Hagel and others of their stature. We should ask them if they would consider running on the Unity ticket.

We should also try to connect with the Draft Gore group and other "minority" organizations (Libertatians, Greens, etc,) to elicit their support.

My contention is that roughly 30 percent of voters will vote Republican and 30 percent Democrat. That leaves a plurality available for a strong third-party turnout.

Don't you think a Gore-Paul ticket would trump any of the losers we have to choose from in the "top-tier" of those two failed parties? I sure do.

Look in your local area on MeetUp.com or Eventful: there are a lot of groups who want to draft Gore or who support Ron Paul, etc: Start a Unity08 group and invite all of them to get active with you or work together to accomplish common goals.
