Idea: Distributed Volunteer Push-Poll Attacks
I'm tired and a little drunk, but I'll try to get the gist of it out.

1) The Republicans pay big money for professional push-polls to sway public opinion.

2) We may not have massive money, but the vast majority of people are on our side (more or less)

3) Why not mobilize our manpower to make phonecalls "polling" people to push our ideas?

4) We get a simple script of "questions" posted online.

5) We use a simple mathematical formula like, "take the last four digits of your phone number and add them to your four-digit birthday. Those are the last four digits of the phone number in your same area code and exchange that you will start calling." So if your phone number is 212-555-1000 and your birthday is January 20th, you would start calling with phone number 212-555-0120

Something like that, anyway.

Nobody gets paid.

Very little over-lap in phone numbers called.

We could do this on a MASSIVE scale.

Could also work for Get Out The Vote, soliciting volunteers, etc.

And we could each save lists of active phone numbers on our computers for future campaigns.
