Ways to Fight Conservative Politics

Fight-Back

BE SURE TO SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL LIBERAL CANDIDATES:

One of the surest ways to beat these nit-wits is to insure they don’t get elected to office in the first place.

  • Put out a road sign supporting your local party favorite.
  • Donate time or money to the candidate of your choice.
  • Take a shift at a local call center, calling registered Democrats to remind them the importance of voting.
  • Use online resources tracking conservative and Tea Party candidates and see if any of them are in your voting district.

DO NOT WATCH TELEVISION STATIONS THAT AIR SUPER PAC NONSENSE:

Don’t just sit there dumbstruck by the lunacy filling your TV screen.  Super PACs will be spending literally tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions, of dollars bombarding the airwaves, particularly on local stations in swing states.

  • It might be hard, or inconvenient, but you can reach for that remote control and change stations as soon as that conservative advertisement hits the screen.  Many local stations have their own ratings systems – be sure to show them that you do not support such nonsense.
  • Follow-up by sending the station an email advising them of your displeasure and that of your family, friends and co-workers.  Sure Super PACs are giving them money for air time today, but that is very short-lived – the local networks and stations need your continued patronage to survive long term.

ADVOCATE TRUTHFULNESS:

Don’t idly standby while others spout out talking points they don’t understand absorbed from too much time on Fox News or listening to conservative pundits who distort the truth such as Limbaugh, Beck or O’Reilly.

  • You can use Twitter, Facebook and other online portals to take-on coservative lies and mindless Tea Party rhetoric.
  • You can challenge that loudmouth at Starbucks spouting out his or her  illogical unsubstantiated opinion.

You will not convince die hard conservatives….. you can lead a horse to water…. but there might be some rational independent thinkers around or people who are unsure how to vote who might be swayed by an argument that actually contains facts.

BE AWARE OF COMPANIES SUPPORTING TEA PARTY AND OTHER RIGHT-WING GROUPS AND BOYCOTT THEM:

You love your country right?  Do not want to see the Tea Party or other conservatives to take over, correct?  Well get out there and identify companies supporting them and their efforts to undermine personal freedoms, women’s reproductive health access……

To get you started, here is a list of but a few of those companies we should avoid.  Be sure to share with your family and friends. This is by no means a fully comprehensive list, but it is a good beginning.
