  •  Occupy-style protests can be effective. (10+ / 0-)

    No need to live there, but show up every week at the same time. In Georgia this is typical: a Monday protest aimed to Governor Deal.

    And it ain't bad to enlist Jesus in this fight. He ain't an Ayn Rand Christian. He ain't a damn Republican. It's sicko when they try to make Him lie.

    -----------------------------

    o Governor Nathan Deal is a Republican.

    o Republicans have two-thirds majorities in both houses of the Georgia legislature.

    o They block 600,000 poor people from Medicaid. These poor people delay health care until their illnesses are serious enough for ER. This emergency treatment is expensive, often late, and we all pay for it when hospitals pass on these costs.

    o Simple fact: blocking Medicaid expansion costs Georgia more than $1-billion every single year. This is bad medicine. There is nothing smart about it.

    o Georgia's Republicans are at war. If your household income is less than $50,000, you are the targets.

    ----------------------------

    Don't be shy about Class War. Three Atlanta mayors talk about it openly. It's not just Occupy.

    What else? Republicans deserve to get burned to the ground. We can poach votes from the 30% to 40% of less-than-$50,000 income people who still vote for the GOP.

    Encourage them to vote smart. Figure out who your enemies are -- the Black people do it.

    •  That works as a flyer. (4+ / 0-)

      Print $5 worth, hand them out. Might take you 2 hours.

      "If you don't like it,. throw it out. If you do like it then pass it forward."

      There's a lot of "pass it forward' in the South. Works better than a chain letter.
