Postcards From America

Postcards From America is a group dedicated to organized contact with politicians and businesses to promote Constitutional Conservatism and oppose the advancement of Progressive ideas and policy. Our purpose is to organize citizens into groups focused on a specific target, like politicians, public figures & celebrities, and businesses, and flooding the target with postcards, emails and telephone calls. This page is an action/advocacy site for those conservatives not content with complaining about the state of affairs and who are eager to make a real difference. By coordinating our efforts into agreed upon targets and agreed upon issues, we harness the power that comes with large numbers. We do no need to have everyone with us. We only need to be banded together directing our effort in a common direction simultaneously.

I liken the idea to the French Resistance in WWII. We utilize the tactics of guerrilla warfare which are designed to focus around the use of a small, mobile force (us) competing against a larger, more unwieldy one (the political establishment). Historians estimate that only about 2% of the adult French population participated in the Resistance, yet they were extremely effective and essential to the defeat of the occupation forces of the German Army. Thus, we adopt as our motto the quotation of Samuel Adams: “It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

This is why I like postcards. You are may be familiar with my spiel: postcards are "cheap, fast, effective." When the Congressional mail room delivers a sack with 5,000 postcards, that gets attention. Postcards pose no security threat because there is no envelop in which something can be hidden, so they are delivered faster than letters. They are quick and easy to write: I prefer bullet points to make my position and/or request immediately clear and unambiguous. They are easy to read and because there is no envelop to open, you can be certain your message is received as intended. They have the added bonus over emails and calls of being tangible; they cannot be denied or ignored, especially in large numbers. Therefore, not only does the target get the message, so does that individual's office mates. The people in adjoining offices see it and word spreads like wildfire: "Did you see Rubio received 4,500 postcards demanding no amnesty? Wow!" Finally, they are cheap. The post office sells them with the Forever stamp for only 38¢ each. Personally, I buy 100 at the time and keep them handy at home and at work. However, politicians can easily ignore my one postcard. They cannot ignore 500+ received simultaneously with the same message. Will they know it is coordinated? Absolutely. That is the goal! All politicians share one priority: Getting re-elected. Therefore, they like organized groups that support them and fear organized groups that oppose them. Our advantage is that we have no centralized location. They cannot contact "us" and they cannot control us. It gives us power, and we must seize it...Now! We can change things...one postcard at the time.

One final, and for many of you very important, point: Unlike emails and telephone calls, postards can be sent without any personally identifying information, so you cannot end up in some government tracking data base. They can be sent with or without a signature or return address, and the message remains just as powerful!

Is there a way to have some type of forum or a chat feature that allows for online participation in a real-time discussion?  Can a group forum be arranged for a specific time to brainstorm & reach a consensus on a small, specific action to be undertaken by all within a specified time? Ex: Everyone mails postcards on immigration/seal the border to specific politicians; or about protecting the free expression of religion.

This is an awesome idea!   I want to see what we can do to integrate tis into our American Standard Movement!

This article confirms the power inherent in using modern technology to thwart the Progressive/Atheist Propaganda Machine and coordinate our efforts at change, with the use of collective "snail mail" as one vehicle for change.  Let's show America we're "community organizers," Constitutional Conservative style. God, Family, Country.

My suggestions for postcard topics this week are 1) Vote "NO" on Obama's trade-promotion authority (TPA) bill, known as fast-track; 2) Kill Common Core Now!; 3) Stop the Illegal Invasion of America. Seal the Border Now! 

What are your thoughts?  We need to get members active & encouraging their friends-family to join in. It only takes a few minutes and 38¢ to mail a postcard!
