How Can We Reach Them?

Just back from presenting a Money, Politics & Democracy program in downstate Illinois and the same thing became obvious once again.

My program is always well received, yet most of the people who turn out for events like mine are already believers.  And while their attending gives me the opportunity to provide motivation for their taking action to make a difference and begin to change the terrible influence of big money on our politics and our democracy, we’re not reaching enough new people.  And if we are to change the trajectory of America and get it to match our vision of what America can be, we have to reach an enormous number of new people.

This is not a Republican or Democrat issue, nor is it radical left or radical right.  It is an American issue and dealing with it properly will require a lot of Americans.  What can we do so that people get the unvarnished truth of what is going on and why it is happening?  Once they know, they invariably want to create change and the necessary steps are right in front of us.  All we need is for a lot of us to move in that direction.

How can we reach those who don’t yet know?

One of the ways is for you to ask those you know to have a look at this blog series, to subscribe and to comment on the blogs.  Go ahead and do that.

Beyond that, what ideas do you have?  Jot them in the Comments section below and help us all to figure this out.


Ed. note:  There is much in America that needs fixing and we are on a path to continually fail to make things better.  It is my goal to make a difference – perhaps to be a catalyst for things to get better.  That is the reason for these posts.  To accomplish the goal requires reaching many thousands of people and a robust dialogue.  Please help by passing this along and encouraging others to do the same.  Thanks.  JA

    I Have The Solution! You advertise that Rush Limbaugh (or some other similar hammer-head; no disparagement meant to sharks) is going to be the speaker. Then, when those who normally wouldn’t show up for your talk arrive you apologize that the person they were expecting to hear couldn’t make it and you’re the last minute replacement. What do you think?

      Not sure I want to do a bait and switch, but I appreciate your creativity.

    A good friend of mine, and the last Democrat to win a state wide office, has joined together with a Republican country doctor to successfully launch a third party of the middle, the American Party. It is now seeking candidates to run for local, congressional and state wide offices in South Carolina. Here is the URL: URLs for all 50 states have been registered, so that this third party of the middle can spread in time for the 2016 elections. Watch for success in SC. If it can happen there it can happen anywhere. It is no longer about argument: it is about change.
