Back in April of last year, Disrupt The Narrative introduced the idea of individuals protesting the high price for fuel and assigning the blame for those prices where it belongs. Barack Obama’s policies are directly responsible for the prices at the pump and there are no signs that they’ll let up anytime soon. Most are predicting they’ll rise even further.
The original idea was printing out a PDF file and afixing to to the gas pump each time you fill up so as to inform the subsequent customers who is to blame.
The idea really took off, but then others simplified and perfected it by converting it to a Sticky Note campaign. People were even putting them in grocery stores by the bacon and other staples that we’re going through the roof.
Well, the idea is returning.
And somebody else has updated the graph from the original DTN post and it can be seen here.
To be really effective I recommend Saul Alinksky’s Rule #13, ‘Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.‘
The target is Obama and the messages need to directly be at Obama. Although I liked the one at ‘I Own the World’ linked above, your audience may not be informed enough to know of the Keystone XL pipeline or its association with Obama.
Have fun. Put a sharpie and some Post It notes in your car and go to town.
