Colorado Caucus "Ask me" t-shirts

Well that didn't work very well.

What went wrong with our plan to have unaffiliated voters reach out to neighbors wearing a red, blue or yellow 'Ask me about our Colorado Caucus."

Was it the wrong slogan? What would work better.

We are going to try another T-shirt, is there another slogan you think would work better?

John Wren will talk more about this on The Startup Show (click here for more) the next few Fridays.

New! "Ask me about the 2016 Caucus" Shirt

Want to make a difference in the 2016 Colorado Caucus? Order a blue, red, or gold shirt, our new "Ask me about the 2016 Caucus" shirts, and wear it to your next neighborhood or family gathering, use it to help people start planning on attending our 2016 Colorado Caucus. Also wear it to any national gatherings for organizations you belong to and use it to start conversations about what we do here in Colorado and if the system might now make sense for their state.

Free speech

Participating in our wonderful Colorado Caucus is a great way to exercise our right to free speech. What is the status of that right today? See Dr Amar Bhide's thoughts via link just posted on our https://www.facebook.com/Colorado.Caucus.News 

While you are there please post links to article and editorials about our upcoming Colorado Caucus. Watch for an attack on it from the powerful forces who hate the right to free speech and the messy grassroots system that levels the playing field for the common person who wants to serve in elected public office.

Coming soon! New online class, Colorado Caucus 201.

This class is free, but is only offered to newcomers to Colorado and those who are new to Colorado politics.

The prerequisite is completion of our Colorado Caucus 101, which you can see in the last 3 posts here below. When you've completed (start any time, take as much or as little time as you'd like) contact us for a free certificate of completion and to get on the invitation list for 201 when it is announced.

So read the last 3 posts here, once you've contacted your county and precinct leaders, contact John Wren at John@JohnWren.com or (303)861-1447. Also contact John if you have any questions or suggestions about what we are doing here.

Our wonderful Colorado caucus-assembly system is the best chance, possibly the last chance, the common person of ordinary means has of serving in elected public office. Thanks for being an active citizen, which the system requires for it to survive and flourish.

Active citizen, day 3.





"The whole state must be so well organized that every Whig can be brought to the polls. So divide the county into small districts and appoint in each a committee. Make a perfect list of the voters and ascertain with certainty for whom they will vote... Keep a constant watch on the doubtful voters and have them talked to by those in whom they have the most confidence... On Election Day see that every Whig is brought to the polls."   
-- Abraham Lincoln, Letter to a friend, 1840


Here's a precinct leaders workbook that says almost the same thing as Abe Lincoln did decades ago:;
http://www.blogforiowa.com/misc/Grassroots_Organizing_Guide.pd

Read the above workbook. Then go to the Colorado Secretary of State Website, http://www.sos.state.co.us/pubs/elections/referenceGuides/Caucus.pdf

Then contact the political party of your choice, Republicans http://www.cologop.org/ or Democrats http://www.coloradodems.org/  and ask them how you can contact your precinct and county leaders to volunteer.

Once you've done this, you will have completed Colorado Caucus 101. Call us for a free certificate of completion and an invitation to an advanced class that will be offered soon. Also call if you have any questions or suggestions, contact John Wren at (303)861-1447 or John@JohnWren.com

Life's short, start now!
