Ok, TCUnation we have less than 1 year before the 2010 elections. We all know the importance of these elections.
It's time to start focusing on our district (representative) and if applicable our state (senator) elections. The first shots of the battle were fired in the 2009 election with conservatives coming out on top. I believe in 2010 WE can begin to take our country back.
We need to start a "boots on the ground" movement to educate people about what the current administration is doing to OUR country. Right now when you post an article on TCUnation you are "preaching to the choir". It's time to reach out.
I am going to open up group creation to District and Local levels.
Why a Group?
A group offers lots of features you can use to provide information via web or email.
One of the greatest features of TCUnation groups is the fact you can email all members of that group, so it can be used as a mailing list. Obviously you can have a forum and offer news and information on candidates. The main idea though behind these groups is a "Boots on the Ground" approach. Talk to your neighbors, family, business owners. Get them involved.
What we need though are LEADERS to run these groups. These groups will NOT exist unless we have members who are willing to step forward and take the lead. You can even for a team to run a group. One might moderate, another promote, another gather news. It really requires very little time though you can spend as much as you like. A hour or so week or few minutes a day will get results.
District - Information on that congressional district. If you would like to lead your district contact me and I will set it up.
Local - Many of you already attend local groups. If you would like to add a local group, ex; (Birmingham Area Conservatives) contact me and we will get you setup.
Other ideas for local and district groups-
-create a team to promote your group
-point a domain name (mygroup.com) to that group (I can help with that)
-use the "Message All Members" function effectively
-link to local candidates website, voting record, etc...
-create satellite groups on facebook and myspace
-meet in person!
-create business cards to hand out
-write feature articles to post on TCUnation homepage
-several people can lead a group, design it the way you like
If we get enough Local and District groups going I will start a Local and District Leader Group, so group leaders can discuss ideas.
That being said I am going to leave it to YOU
. Groups are a very powerful feature of TCUnation.
as always - THERE IS STRENGTH IN NUMBERS!
