Idea in Eighth place at Change.org
I was just notified by change.org that my idea was in eighth place in its category. This is the same site that has censored ideas mentioning 9-11, yet this idea has survived for weeks. If it hits the top three in the category, it gets forwarded to Obama, and perhaps more importantly, the more votes it gets the more visibility it earns on the site.
Why not look it over and see whether it's worth a collective effort to bump it into third place. Here's how it reads:
End Censorship of War on Terror
Ever since the "War on Terror" began, there's been massive censorship about the facts surrounding it both within the corporate media, the progressive media, and internet news sites and blogs. The Obama administration should announce a policy of increased transparency surrounding the War on Terror, and the media should take that as a cue to stop censoring their content.
And here's the text of the email I received:
We wanted to let you know that there are only 2 weeks left in the first round of the "Ideas for Change in America" competition, and your idea is in 8th place in the Civic Engagement category.
The top 3 rated ideas for each category will make it to the second round, which will be held in early January so we can announce the winners of the competition just before the Presidential Inauguration. You need 149 votes to move up to third place in Civic Engagement.
The best way to increase your votes is to email your link to friends and ask them to support your idea and pass it on. You can do this by forwarding the following link:
You can also put a badge for your idea on your blog or website by clicking on the link and grabbing the embed code on the right side of your ideas page.
Best of luck!
