I have a smart (well, Erwin McManus calls him brilliant), Republican friend who is concerned about the economic implications for our nation if Obama gets elected to office for another 4 years. (I'm less concerned because I'm already convinced our nation is screwed and that China, who owns us, will eventually take over the world, regardless of who wins this year's election. We'll be called "The New World Order," as suggested by poorly produced end times movies, and Kurt Cameron will play the role of the anti-Christ.)
Today, in an e-mail, I shared with my brilliant friend a brilliant idea I had on how to get the people who don't care about politics (i.e. the majority) to cast a vote in favor of someone other than Obama.
Here is my proposed strategy:
as far as the campaigning goes, you should have some of your republican friends recruit some chinese-american college students to run a "don't let china take over america" campaign on facebook
if the video & campaigning is ridiculous enough, it will go viral. and in doing so it will help young people understand that their vote can help prevent a Chinese take over...
the majority of Americans have no idea how indebted we are to China.
btw, i'm not serious about this idea, but since i had it, i thought i'd share it.
Later in the evening, while I was out running, I further developed my strategy. You see, many people still won't care if China takes over our nation; however, they WILL care if China takes over our nation AND access to facebook is blocked, like it has been in blocked in China for many years.
So if our debt, and Obama's economics can be creatively linked to a potential Chinese takeover, then it won't be hard to get people to vote for Romney (or someone other than Obama). The majority of young people don't care about politics, but they do care about Facebook. And they WILL unify together at the polls in a grand effort to SAVE FACEBOOK!
The President of the University I use to work for has a different campaign strategy; he made a movie, explaining the dangers of Obama's economics.
And his movie explains, why earlier this year, on a skype call to Uganda, my friend Ted made mention of trying to deliver goats (as a gift) to Obama's grandmother in East Africa. He said their attempt was unsuccessful and he and my university's president got kicked off her property by local law enforcement.
