Gearing Up To Whip the Predatory Unpatriotic PACs


WE ARE LOSING PRECIOUS TIME WE MUST ACTIVELY FIGHT GOP PACS
GOP PACs are noxious organizations whose purposes are evil 
because they intend palpable harm
GOP PAC's practice Big Lie politics reminiscent of Germany in the 1930s
GOP PACs can end up buying an election and permanently harming
millions in the resulting misgovernance
GOP PACs will eventually be seen as unpatriotic and unAmerican   

THE MEDIA AND MULTITUDES ACT AS THOUGH THERE IS NO CAUSE FOR ALARM
Many see things through the lens of past elections and miss the Super PAC difference
The media seems to regard truth as what is being said when much that is said is a conscious lie
The sheer plethora of barriers to fairness in this election is daunting to the ordinary person
Decades of GOP chipping away at our democracy have created an apathetic stupor 

THE ANSWER LIES IN WORKING HYPOTHESES WE CAN TEST
Can showing the election is being bought create public rage
Can such rage become newsworthy and if so how
Can we equal the force of the Big Lie with limited resources

We need immediately to consider this and flag the responses and ideas that work

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
