5. "Just Say No"
re: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Taking a page from their hero (god?) Reagan and using it against them, that's sure to drive them nuts.

4. Correction:
Don't Let the Sick Come Between Your Senators and His Lobbyists.

Lobbyist really needs to be plural. Now isn't the ratio a couple thousand lobbyists to every Senator and member of Congress?

8. Organize Methods To Counter Anti Health Care Teabaggers
Organize Methods To Counter Anti Health Care Teabaggers

First, I'm highlighting the infamous tea bagger strategy memo by from Bob MacGuffie, a volunteer with the FreedomWorks website Tea Party Patriots, exposed and publicized here by TPM, because the memo shows more about the tea bagger's organizing strategies and objectives that we need to examine in order to counter organize.

Second, I urge folks to keep up on the town hall events and other tea bagger anti health care activities by diarying about when they will occur. I am providing a link below to their site where we can see where they'll be striking next. It's state by state, so I suggest people start diarying about town hall events in each state. Another option is to look at all events held each week in each state, but that would take some amount of work to put together that kind of diary if some folks can do it.


By examining the teabagger's own instruction memo, we can organize counter strategies:

Teabagger strategy:
People should be asked to meet in the parking lot of the hall a half hour before the scheduled start.

Proposed Counterstrategy:
***Come early then, to a town hall and take a look and assess the group (their size, attitude, etc.) before they come in. This could come in handy to ask the town hall organizers to check ID's for district residents only, and to come up with other strategies for dealing with the group.***

Teabagger strategy:
You could schedule a press conference 20 minutes before the Town Hall is scheduled to begin... have someone available to read a prepared statement and answer questions.

Proposed Counterstrategy:
This should be countered by going straight up to any media interviewing this group and demanding they interview you as well, where you can denounce the group as outside agitators bussed in. We need to aggressively counter and inform any local media being attempted to be monopolized by these groups, especially considering we will be representing local opinion while they are carpetbagging nutjobs.
