Activist Alert for 9/19/04Let's reach out to the some of the past sponsors of the debates and let them know that it's wrong to support those that would subvert the political process. Corporations can get uncomfortable when you call them out on their political involvement, and we should make them squirm. Of course you should also check your local papers. Find out who writes stories or columns on political issues, and who the political editors are. We need to pressure them to expose the sham of the debates and to promote OpenDebates.org. Finally help us spread the word about this effort to outside blogs, chatrooms, or other forums you participate in, even non-Libertarians who believe we need to open the debates can help. We're doing great so far, but we can always use help.
1. Contact debate sponsors AARP, Anheuser-Busch, and/or the Century Foundation.
2. Write your local political writers, pressure them to write about open debates.
3. Use other blogs, discussion forums, and mailing lists to help us find more activists. We need voices to get Michael Badnarik into the debates!
Don't forget the Lights of Liberty Award for getting three or more LTE's published, and don't be afraid to follow up with the newspapers you write to and push them to write your letters. Sample letters and contact addresses can be found at our website. the letters are posted under "Highlights" and the contacts are in the links to the left of the page.
