Grassroots Hillary. Mission: Bumper Sticker


We here at Vote for Hillary Online have mentioned this a few times before, but I don't think we spent enough time focusing on this specific grassroots tactic. This is something we like to call Mission: Bumper sticker.

Everyone knows that putting your candidate's bumper sticker on your car is a good way to spread the word and get the name recognition out there. Btw, if you haven't done this by now, shame on you. One thing that isn't done so often though is putting bumper stickers on cars besides yours. Now, I understand this is a very controversial topic and there has been a lot of debate on this among the grassroots supporters. However, it is the opinion of Vote for Hillary Online, that despite some issues a few of you may have with this, it's actually a very effective way to increase exposure.

I'm going to address a few concerns:

  • It damages private property. This is absolutely false. It's a sticker and it can be pulled off just as easily as it was put on.
  • People will be turned off if they feel the message is forced. Again, in our experience this hasn't been found to be true. For every one jerk that doesn't appreciate us putting a Hillary bumper sticker on his car, there are 99 other people who realize that politics plays a very important role in sustaining freedom and prosperity in America.

Here are some tips:

1. You want to go to a highly concentrated parking lot where new cars are constantly coming in. Think Wal-Mart. You can get a lot more cars done in a smaller amount of time in this environment.

2. Bring your kids with you. This is something I learned a long time ago in previous campaigns. When I would do this alone, people looked at me with suspicion - some even thought I was up to no good. When you have your kids there with you, it puts people at ease and portrays a more positive image not only to yourself, but the grassroots Hillary campaign.

3. Place the bumper stickers on each car very quickly, you don't want to be crouched down next to someone's car for very long. We had a guy in Indiana who had a bad back, so he had to take his time with crouching down and placing the bumper stickers. What happened was, this car owner arrived and got in his car without even seeing the grassroots campaigner and almost ran him over. We don't want to have any accidents out there, please be safe. The last thing we need is another negative headline involving the Hillary Clinton campaign.

4. Don't stay in one area. You don't want to have your individual grassroots effort limited to one very small geographical region. What some supporters have suggested is changing what parking lot you go to every 3 days.

5. Most important: Have fun. We're all doing this because we want to take back America but let's not forget that if we're not having fun, we probably won't do a good job.

Hopefully I've covered all the bases here but if I've left something out, please shoot us an e-mail. I look forward to seeing all those bumper stickers out there!

Edit: A commenter has suggested that this may actually be illegal in some states. Please check the laws in your state before proceeding with this grassroots tactic.

In most states the practice you are describing would be vandalism or criminal damage.

I can't believe that you are actually advocating such a position and shame on you for suggesting that you include children as well.

I followed a smear comment this blogger left on someone else's blog to here. So I don't find this all that surprising. If this isn't some hidden Republican campaigner then I'm appalled; it really does not advance Hillary at all.

Thanks for commenting on my blog earlier (really). Just to clarify: I don't consider satire a smear.

Regarding your comments about Hillary's honor, patriotism, etc.: Please tell me you remember the Clinton administration's records -- with which Hillary was deeply involved.

An example can be found in the Congressional Record:

http://www.fas.org/news/china/1998/h980618-prc8.htm

The Clintons' records include:

* Number close to the Clintons who have been convicted of or pleaded guilty to crimes: 44
* Number of convictions during his administration: 33
* Number of indictments/misdemeanor charges: 61
* Number of imprisonments: 14
* Number of presidential impeachments: 1
* Number of independent counsel investigations: 7
* Number of congressional witnesses pleading the 5th Amendment: 72
* Number of witnesses fleeing the country to avoid testifying: 17
* Number of foreign witnesses who have declined interviews by investigative bodies: 19

The Clinton machine now holds the record for the administration with:

* The most number of convictions and guilty pleas
* The most number of cabinet members to come under criminal investigation
* The most number of witnesses to flee the country or refuse to testify
* The most number of key witnesses to die suddenly
* The greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions
* The greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad.

In addition, we don't know the extent of Hillary's actions because the Clintons' law firm redacted the Barrett Report and the Cox Report (separate independent counsel investigations). In the interest of clarity, Americans should demand that Hillary release these records.

More on the Barrett Report here:

Please. Leave one of your bumper stickers on my car. And when you are arrested for vandalism - and I assure you, you will be - be sure to tell your kids you're just having "fun."

IfUWereSmartUdBRepublican said...

Please, I'm begging you ... put one of your bumper stickers on my car. And when you are arrested for vandalism - and I assure you, you will be - make sure you tell your kids how much fun you're having.

IfUWereSmartUdBRepublican, Mission: Bumper Sticker has been called off for now. http://voteforhillaryonline.blogspot.com/2007/11/alert-hold-off-on-mission-bumper.html

Are we ready for "Operation Burn Hillary's Name in People's Front Lawn?"

Ben said...

how about "Mission: Tattoo Hillary's Face on Sleeping Babies"? How's that one going? Let me tell you, when we did that for GWB, it really got the word out...

It is the same for all politicians, they are more or less all the same.
