46. ALOT! BE the MEDIA.. word of mouth... print flyers.. go to meetings..
granted the MSM would be the fastest and easiest way to inform the public, but it is not the only way.. word of mouth is very powerful but slow, and I dare say the word is getting out... the emperor has no clothes!

I speak to everyone that calls me.. I work it into chat at the store and everywhere I go. It is up to us, we are the heros we have been waiting for! Make it your goal to inform everyone you can, friends, family, stangers... Politics can NOT BE TABOO to discuss any more... I usually talk to people about the media 1st, worded to not show my position. I find just about everyone suspects the news is lying or misleading.... I then point out that propaganda is happening right now (Armstrong Williams, Jeff Gannon) and the media is distracting (Aruba BS while congress passed bankruptcy laws that can hurt us all) the people from the truth (Iraq no WMDs or 911 ties, rigged elections, looting the treasury, cronyism).

You will find the more you do this, the better you get, the more refined your argument, better examples and the more impact you can have in a short time.

... and always leave them with info or where to go for truth. (DU, AAR, truthout, rawstory, democracy now, The nation, MJ, ect...) The truth is out, we see it, talk to others, point them to the light... because once they see the light.... they wont go back!

and finally.... tell them you need there help too. Once they educate themselves, tell them we need them to join you in talking to others.... this is the part that really makes this work. Even if only 1 in 100 takes on the cause... the growth is still exponential as more and more people are talking. I can see it happening as I meet people that know whats up!

We will take this country back!!

Welcome to DU! :)
