Big Money, Romney-Ryan, & The Way of the Guerilla Warrior
The GOP has taken a radical right turn and is barreling toward a cliff everyone but themselves can see. However, it is a slow death and they are wreaking havoc on our nation in the hysteria of their death throes–causing all the damage they can on the way out. Further, they have a long list of big money supporters, including NBA owners, Sheldon Adelson, the Koch brothers, Carl Rove’s Super Pac, and Wall Street. And they’re all throwing money at them like drunken sailors at a pole dancer. Can Progressives counter the influx of big money made possible by the conservative Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision?
Yes, we can! Here’s how.
In order to end this failed experiment in plutocratic theocracy sooner rather than later, we must hit them where it hurts them most: their bank accounts. We can accomplish this by following the lessons of Ho Chi Min and The Way of the Guerrilla Warrior. The guerrilla warrior works behind enemy lines–silently, secretly, blending in with his adversaries, allowing no one to discover his true purpose. The guerrilla warrior is resolute, patient, alert, and always seeking opportunities to attack. He embeds himself into his enemy’s network as a spy, a clerk, a servant, or a supporter. In this role he finds opportunities to undermine, confuse, and misdirect his foe, consuming his enemy’s resources wholesale. As Progressives we can use the guerrilla warrior’s techniques to undermine the Romney-Ryan campaign and its big money machine.
Operation Make ‘Em Pay
Visit the Romney-Ryan web site, being sure to use one of their paid ads in any of the major search engine results or in your favorite social networking site. Right click and copy the shortcut from the paid search listing–it will be the one at the top of the page or in the right sidebar–and paste it into your browser’s address field, then refresh the page as many times as you like. For each time you refresh the page using a paid results link they get charged.
The more money they spend marketing to us, the less they have to spend marketing to and soliciting donations from others. Not only that, the money goes back into circulation in an economy starved by their avarice. Time is the most valuable of resources, and the more time their robot caller spends calling those of us who wouldn’t ever support their greed and hate agenda, they have less time to pester poor souls who may be taken in by their blatant lies, misinformation and revisionist history, or tragically misguided supporters with open checkbooks.
Best of all it’s easy to get started, you can attack from the comfort of your home, office, or on the run with your notebook or smart phone with none the wiser. It will fill you with the delicious feeling of empowerment denied so long by GOP Tea Party obstructionism.
You can use any of the popular search engines to begin your guerrilla attack. The GOP and Romney-Ryan are blanketing the airwaves and the Internet with advertisements. You’ll find them on all the major search engines, including: Bing, Google, Yahoo, and Alta Vista. You can easily run up impressions as well as click their ads until your fingers grow as weary as you have of the Faux News driven GOP agenda. Once you’ve loaded the search results, right click (control click for Mac) the Romney-Ryan paid link–hint these are at the top of the page or in the right sidebar–and select “Open in New Tab” from the context menu. When the Romney-Ryan site opens in the new tab, close it and repeat or simply refresh the page. If a thousand Progressives each did this ten times a day it could cost them additional tens of thousands per day. If ten thousand of do it each day, it could cost them hundreds of thousands or even millions in the time between now and November 6th, ending their Presidential pretensions and sabotaging their Radical Right agenda.
If you want to take your attack to the next level, register with the Romney-Ryan web site. When you get one of their emails, add it to your mail client’s Blocked or Junk list. When they call, add the number to your ignore list. By no means opt out–for each call their robot makes and each email they send expends valuable resources they could use to contact supporters.
The best part is the money the top 1% gained looting the country during the George W. Bush Administration is funneled back into our starving monetary system, providing quantitative easing and, perhaps, creating employment opportunities. Now that’s Job Creation I can support!
Become a guerrilla warrior today, and Make ‘Em Pay!

And the beast called itself GOP and written upon its seven heads are: Avarice, Cowardice, Entitlement, Homophobia, Ignorance, Misogyny, and Racism. And the meek shall cry out in agony. And the beast shall be slain by the Lamb, in their name. And the beast's name shall be erased from the minds of men forever.
