Now that the recall is over, Progressives are wondering "What Now?" Please share your ideas on our Blog.
We know that Koch and AFP are pumping mega-sums into Walker’s treasury, paying for glossy and expensive TV ads. We have another idea – “Grassroots TV”.
You can buy blank yard signs and H-wires in bulk at a cost of less than $2.50 for a set. On each sign, the homeowner can put “Grassroots TV” at the top. Underneath, they can print an outrage that Walker and the Republicans have perpetrated on the people of Wisconsin since January, 2011. That list is long, but Wisconsin has a lot of lawns!
The impact of circulators willing to stand in the cold for signatures was enormous. The impact of yard signs in 2 million yards documenting Walker’s outrages is marvelous to imagine.
We deeply resent Walker’s remarks that his recall is due to “millions of dollars coming in from out of state”. We are lifelong Wisconsinites in our mid-70s. We stood in the cold for hours on end, day after day. Our efforts and those of our friends and neighbors made history.
A “Grassroots TV” campaign, created and executed by Wisconsin residents, will make that history even more visible. It will honor this home-grown movement. It will stand in vivid contrast to Walker’s out-of-state millions. It will be a source of pride for citizens in all corners of the state. It might even make local and national news. And, it will cost less than $2.50 per lawn.
How can you create your own GrassRoots TV campaign?"
4. If there are people who want a sign but are unable to make one themselves, we're prepared to do it for them.
What will you put on your signs?
