The Thumbs Down Campaign

As I was driving home from work the other night, I was streaming Pandora Radio through my smartphone because the radio is just terrible. I was listening to a station I had created when a song by an artist came up that I had originally given a thumbs up to. For those of you who don't know how Pandora works, you create radio stations starting with an artist. Pandora plays music by that artist and similar artists and you can give a thumbs up or down to each song in order for Pandora to really nail down what you want to hear.

Anyway, this particular artist had held a fundraiser for Obama a few months ago. As the song was playing, all I could think about was the pictures of this artist with Obama during the fundraiser and that every time I listened to their music, the artist got paid. This in turn, led to MY money supporting Obama. In order to get this image out of my mind, I changed my Thumbs Up, to a Thumbs Down. That's when it dawned on me, this is how we can beat the Hollywood Left.

Thus, the Thumbs Down Campaign was born. I'm promoting it here first because I know there are fellow conservatives and patriots here. The concept is simple, every week, we will give a new artist, actor or other supporter of the liberal agenda a thumbs down on places like Pandora, IMDB, etc... As an ongoing measure, we also ask that you NOT watch any movies/TV shows or listen to music by these particular artists and actors.

What will this accomplish? We'll be hitting them where it hurts the most, in their wallets. The less the artists' music play on online radio, the less money they'll make. The less we go see movies, or watch them on TV, the less they will be played on TV and studios will not have them star in movies as they will be box office drags. It's so simple, yet can make a huge impact.

So I ask that you signup for our Facebook page.

This is where we'll start. We can start up email lists and such after the fact. Don't have Facebook? SIGN UP! Add your friends and share this link with them. Help us push this out into the mainstream.
