Using Craigslist to find LOTS of candidates for FCP

(10 pm. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Democracy Now had a program segment called “The Citizens’ Candidate”-Grassroots Effort Uses Craigslist to Find Candidate For Utah House Seat

Utah Citizen’s Movement website is here.

If Craigslist works for UCM, why not the Full Court Press?

    Do you have an opinion as to running Full Court Press candidates in Utah? Say, e.g., for districts other than district 2?

  7. UTvoter

    in 02, the matheson seat. SL county has the highest density of progressives/democrats. Even the straight up blue doggy types barely have a chance in the other, heavily LDS/republican districts. i hope you dont’ mind, i just posted a diary on GOS on this, with a hat tip/link to you!

  8. metamars

    What is GOS, though? A dailykos reference?

    The Shock Doctrine

    Based on the best-selling book by Naomi Klein, The Shock Doctrine seeks to explain the rise of disaster capitalism: the exploitation of moments of crisis in vulnerable countries by governments and big business. The film traces the doctrine’s beginnings in the radical theories of Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago, and its subsequent implementation over the past 40 years in countries as disparate as Augusto Pinochet’s Chile, Boris Yeltsin’s Russia, Margaret Thatcher’s Great Britain, and most recently through the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
