I am watching the GOP convention.

Please say we are going to ramp up our media outreach... because... that Elephant is dying.

    I think Trump has shown how powerful social media can be in a campaign. I believe as a third party a candidate must establish a 4 year plan. Candidate also needs to get their party fully behind the campaign.

    First year would be used to 1. Create an in depth platform (what are views on immigration, national debt, national security, etc) and write their plans/ideas on a blog. With these blogs the rest of the party can share in their networks to build support. Create a ‘Go Fund Me’, ‘Facebook ads’, and various online donation sites. Create a bank account seperate from personal accounts. Year 2 should increase in exposure with online radio shows (I have several hosts in my network), create a campaign website, party members increase posts on social media, push voter registration, recruit and identify top level advisors, comment on current congressional campaigns (current events & candidates), and begin creating volunteer groups in local areas. Year 3 Actively gather signatures from registered voters in order to get onto the ballots of all 50 states. Advisors begin creating state and city headquarters/directors, identify opponents, have volunteers investigate & confirm internet reports on opponents, begin practicing debates, national party heads seek out other third parties to ally with. Year 4 is running and trying to get onto general election debates. Includes a higher pace more active on everything in previous three years.

    I know that I am missing details so maybe more educated folks can add to this.

    The elephant died awhile ago with Priebus.
    I would run as a Whig…but I would have to have a way to raise money to campaign :) (that is something I am not good at doing).

    Purchasing Facebook ads with links to our website, assigning a reddit coordinator, more active use of the facebook account, releasing more frequent press releases regarding current events, putting out a call to Whigs to get engaged on social media or in their communities over this summer (conventions season) to drop things… developing alternative perspectives and commentary through blogs, etc.

    How do you propose we ramp it up? What modes and methods do you feel would be most effective in reaching people?

    And even if the party doesn’t specifically ramp things up, personal efforts are always an option.
