Regarding newspapers, my own unique, humble, and maybe old fashioned contribution to Senator Sanders' efforts is to strongly request readers to sit down and write a letter to the editor in two or three local papers in support of Bernie which state WHY.
I call this complex strategy The Battle of the Editorial Pages.
I strongly believe this strategy could make a huge and crucial difference for Bernie.
It coalesces power; it shows which leaders in each community are supporting him and why; it is free and doesn't cost any money like all of the TV ads; people really pay attention to such letters to the editor and to the longer op-eds; and finally, the person who reads the letter to the editor and decides whether to publish it or not, is often the very person who either writes that vital endorsement in late October, or alternatively, is the person who sits on the editorial board that together writes the paper's endorsements.
I am asking the reader to comment with ideas of your own, especially in all of the Facebook groups in which this will be shared, and especially if your ideas are tied to specific strategies and tactics, ideas that could make the difference and put Bernie over the top.
In Facebook groups, please use the group to advance strategies and tactics, and to post relevant news articles. To be effective and to truly help Bernie win, please don't post adolescent memes, and please don't just preach to the choir, and please don't get into absurd semantic arguments with people you already essentially agree with. As they say: "Keep our eyes on the prize!"
There will be great useful information coming back from such an effort!
Tell us your successes and your failures in your increased personal efforts at pro-Bernie conversations. Make a goal of talking to ten people each day for the next 4 months about Bernie Sanders and why he should be President and how we together have a chance to repair the harm done to our nation, to our environment, to our economy, and to our future as a nation.
