A couple entries back, I asked supporters (no matter where you’re at in the country) to google “Ohio newspapers” and send brief endorsement letters to the editor of some of those papers. We are now in the midst of a “Buckeye Blitz” of Ohio. The reason is simple. Ohio was the bellweather state in the nation last presidential election, and all eyes were focused on it. And it was a razor thin margin in Ohio that, ultimately, determined the election. The demographics in the nation haven’t changed much, and we believe it may well come down to Ohio this next presidential election as well… So, our strategy is to become viable in Ohio as early out as possible. (It helps that we are from Ohio as well.) And if we look viable in the key state, it will be enough to make it a national story — with some staying power. As this happens, we can then mobilize our supporters in other states to get on the ballots, do some stepped up campaigning, and so on… (Because we don’t have the big party machine and all the millions for adverstising, we had to come up with another strategy. And this is it.)… Now, we need your aid in helping raise our profile in Ohio, if you’d consider it. As mentioned above, we are asking people from all over the country to write endorsement letters to the editor of Ohio newspapers about the “Average Joe” Schriner Campaign. Some points to consider stressing in the letters would include: 1) That I am an Ohioan. 2) We consistently tell people that my wife and I are running as your “average concerned Ohio parents.” And we are concerned about such things as mounting levels of: abortion; war; violence in the streets; global warming gasses; nationaly debt; homeless and hungry — both here and in the Third World. This all is not the kind of thing we wanted to leave our children. So instead of lamenting about the state of the world, Liz and I quit our professions and set out to do something about it. 3) We’ve traveled the country the past 15 years looking for people who have come up with common sense solutions to all these problems. And we found them. 4) Our platform is based on good old fashion common sense. 5) Our goal is to help move the country in a direction where once again God is first, family and community are close, there are way less people in need, and the streets are again safe for our children. Note: Please feel free to use any of the latter in the letter, or any other reason(s) you’re supporting the campaign. And if you would, would you let others know about this strategy as well. The more letters, the better. Thanks.
