I want to continue yesterday’s thread (please read first), and want to call on my brothers and sisters here to get a PLAN of ACTION. I am willing to be the lightning rod and do this here in Cleveland, but as I’m sure you guys are aware, we have to alert the media if the pro-liberty message implicit in BURNING THE PATRIOT ACT is going to have any effect or reach.
Here’s my list of things that need to be completed:
- Pick the date… 9/11 has come and gone, but the issue of Koran burning is still fresh and begging for rape with a logical argument (THE SOONER THE BETTER)
- Pick a place… There is a federal courthouse downtown, and we also have a Federal Reserve… but I don’t want to confuse any issues, obviously
- Notify local & national media… after this is hammered out, please help in sending email and placing phone calls (THIS PART IS CRITICAL)
- Get people to attend… this is actually rather optional, but I don’t think there will be a lack of people/press showing up once the word is out there
- Print the PATRIOT Act and make a sign (Burn the PATRIOT Act)… I need someone local with access to a printer, Staples price to print is ridiculous ($117, WTF)
I promise I will do everything in my power, but I’m asking you guys to help make this happen (I am an organized person, but feel that I am severely lacking in the ability to organize people, especially libertarians). Any questions or opinions (think this is win/fail), please bring them up in the comments.
UPDATE: If you guys don’t want to rise to the occasion, I’ll just perform an ad hoc PATRIOT Act burning like this guy and just do it in my back yard, sans media… but with photos instead of video.
