On behalf of our Lapeer Co.Tea Party, I am sending this to various Tea Parties/912 organizations for your consideration. Our group has put together with high member input and participation two flyers listing Reasons Why Not to Reelect Obama. One is a list of 100 reasons (could easily have been many more) which is intended to inform the many who have not been paying attention for years. The second file is the Top Ten Reasons with a detailed explanation on each for those who again may not have been paying attention but who want a deeper look at our reasoning.
Both of these we intend to print in quantity and distribute at fairs, parades, and events over the remaining time to election. Further, both of these are formatted for a tri-fold flyer; we are not suggesting you copy our flyer but rather develop your own with your membership. Ours was excited while going through this process. Further, another benefit is putting them into a PDF format and also posting it on our web site, they can be electronically sent anywhere as email attachments to a distribution list.
We are passing this on for your consideration in the hope that you may find this useful and do something similar. We think these flyers provide a great opportunity to involve members, provide a great (hopefully game changing) flyer and an electronic means for many Tea Party/912 groups to impact directly those we may not normally reach and thereby help change the this most critical election.
We ask only that you let us know if you decide to use the concept and any feedback you may have. Also, it would be greatly appreciated if you also would pass this onto other like minded groups for greater awareness and impact.
