Why:     The 2012 Election cycle will in large part be determined by who “controls the narrative”  or, in other words, who determines what the general electorate hears.  We all know the Main Stream Media will be mouthing the talking points of the political establishment on both side of the isle.  So how do true conservatives fight back?  Simple – we must be better at using the free grassroots communications tools at our disposal.   We must have an effective plan- 

The political establishment has been extremely successful at pushing their agenda into American communities by driving the narrative. This has been done by controlling the mainstream media and using the Acorn model of going into the community, creating relationships, and organizing messengers to push their agenda using New Media/ Social Media.

When the people are empowered to drive the narrative they can reverse the stronghold of the political establishment therefore affecting the 2012 primary and general elections.

The Challenge…..

How do we take inside information to the people so they may be empowered with knowledge and can affect the results of local, state and national elections?

The Answer….. 

We create the environment for good content to be developed from the ground up. We teach members of the group or organization how to aggregate and disseminate information to reach the passive majority.

Based on the idea of the:

  • Passive Majority
  • Engaged Minority
  • Connected Authority  

Voices Empower’s Grassroots Boots on the Ground workshop

will provide the roadmap for Grassroots/Tea Party organizations to build a communication team which will utilize new media tools for their group such as:

  • Blogs
  • Online videos and photos
  • Podcasts
  • Forums and Bulletin Boards
  • Social networks- www.LibertyLinked.com, Face Book, Twitter, and LinkedIn

The goal of the communication team is to become the experts in their local area for news and information. This is done by:

  • Gathering content from credible sources
  • Connecting the dots when state and national stories effect local elections
  • Covering events in the local area
  • Creating issue based content around local and state elections

Dissemination of content is done by training the membership within the organization to aggregate stories and information to their sphere of influence therefore reaching the passive majority instead of relying on organization leaders to send information only to the engaged minority via e-mail.

The Result……..

By empowering the engaged minority with information and knowledge, they will pass it onto the passive majority resulting in an informed electorate. This strategy will reverse the stronghold of power brokered by the political elite and their candidates PR campaigns and big media buys, taking America back to a Constitutional based government where power is in the hands of the people determined by their informed vote.

How:  The Llano Tea Party is sponsoring a two-session workshop on the use of new media (new media is a fancy term for web-based communications tools like Liberty Linked, Facebook, Twitter, Blogs and others).
 It’ll be practical and hands-on, so BRING YOU LAPTOP or TABLET. 
Session one will be from 9 AM to 12 Noon. The focus is on individuals who want to support the Communications Teams from each Grassroots organization. You will learn how to most effectively use the media tools to support the “narrative” and to multiply the audience that you can reach with our story.
Session two focuses on the Communication Leaders and Committees in each grassroots organization. This session will be from 1 PM to 4 PM. You will learn how to coordinate and organize your efforts to drive the numbers, scope and mass that will “push” our issues to the top of the usage charts.
Please RSVP to bill@wrhussey.com   There are only a few more spaces available so make your reservations NOW.
