Yes, Grassroots work, share Sundance’s work by posting URL links to this work. By sending URL links in your email communication with friends and aquaintances, maybe via your emails signature. I want to suggest creating a 2″ x 3.5″ business card with URLs, a QR scan code, and 5 reasons to support your primary candidate choice. last a reminder to register Republican to vote in the GOP Republican primary.

1.) LibreOffice and OpenOffice have a template business card that could be modified to this use. After completing a print out to a PDF file to a USB Flash Drive and take down the USB Flash Drive to your local copy shop, print on 80lb card stock, and then use the paper shear to cut the 10 cards out from a 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper.

2.) An open source cross platform label creator, Glabels works on Linux Mint and PCBSD O/S. Again create a PDF file and take down to your local Kinko’s FedEX copy shop for printing on 80lb card stock.

3.) Here is a Create a QR Scan code howto

Now, this website, Voting in Rural America should have a friendly contest to create a single PDF file that would print out 10 2″x3.5″ business cards on a single sided 8.5″ x 11″ inch paper. For us that like to talk a lot, maybe have single PDF file with two pages, that can print front and back side, aligned so that when the cards are cut, they have print on two sides. :>) You can send more words to the wise recipient or baffle them with BS. Your choice.

This would be a cheap grassroots up method to influence people you come in contact with everyday. I may make it to the Oregon State fair here in Salem Oregon to hear a presidential candidate talk, but it takes knocking on doors and handing out information to your local neighbors. Grassroots, one method to effect change. My 2 cents, hope some of you take this idea, make it your own and run with it like Paul Revere, The GOPe is coming. The GOPe is coming.

Sundance, can we have a post, where people can attach their business card creation in a PDF file with a PNG thumb preview. Then we can talk about what we like and what we would change to make a better card. Next a way to sort the cards on a state by state list, where we could download the card we liked to a USB Thumb drive to take over to the copy shop and print 4 or 5 sheets of business cards to hand out over the next couple of weeks. Takes a dollar and 20 minutes of your time.

You can use LibreOffice and Inkscape on MS Windows Vista,XP,7,or 8 to create a 10 card per sheet of card stock paper.

or take 10 minutes, 2 downloads to create a bootable USB flash drive with PuppyLinux to save and modify your creations.
