here's one thing i did in 2012, i had some white stock business cards made up, : "Vote Out The Incumbents", in bold black letters, was on the front, with a red circle and a slash through Incumbent, kinda basic to catch an eye...and on the back, i had drafted about two paragraphs worth of 'character building', 'personal reflection' type of crap but i had them print it so small you couldn't read it with the naked eye, you could see there were words there, but they were tiny...I will never stoop to petty vandalism. When I've reached my limit and its my turn to protest, I'll be in a totally different frame of mind than just destroying other people's property.
i then spread them all around walmart and every grocery store and retail outlet i went into, when i left, they had 10 or more of my cards stuffed amongst their items
the idea was: if they couldn't read it, maybe they'd be more inclined to take it home to use a magnifier to read it, it was an enticement for some to actually put it into their pocket, take it with them
ideas like that come from thinking what it would take to get me to 'react'...the ideas and schemes to get people to do what they would normally do are sorta easy to figure out
no stickers required, no duct tape, no magic markers...i had to watch for cameras in the store, be discreet, my wife thought i was nuts, i thought it was practice
i have no idea on how many were actually taken home, how many were found by store employees, etc...
think about it,
we were dudes on the playground once...not much really has changed except for our abilities to 'be smart'...many of us were just 'dumb boys' back then
i'm all grown up now but some of those ideas are still valid, probably for you too
