Are you on Facebook? If asked, over 600 Million people would answer "yes" to that question. So, what’s all the hype about? Well, I'll lay it out for you. Back when the internet was run by a small handful of nerds who ruled the world with HTML code, the average person was left out in the cold, faced with insurmountable odds. Armed with only a handful of search engines and geocities to vent their frustrations and conquer cyberspace, the race to restore freedom in America was crawling along.
As the internet grew up and the cyber nerds become open-source wizards the message of freedom began spreading through underground file sharing networks. Once it dropped in my hard drive I was hooked. Today the message of freedom is carried on a variety of mediums. Facebook, is in our cell phones, our TVs, and has integrated itself into almost every aspect of our lives. Some people only use the internet to log into Facebook. Facebook, it is projected, will soon BE the internet.
So how do we make it work for us? How do we make it carry the message of freedom? In the last presidential race Barak Obama made it one of his goals to ensure that he hired Facebook's top programmers to work on the social marketing side of his campaign. Some argue that it was this method that won him the election. By tapping into the social conciseness of the nation, through Facebook, Barak Obama reached a generation of Americans who turned out the vote for him. However, change doesn't come by simply creating a Facebook profile, but it can surly start with one. From the hardcore anarchist to the ardent statist you will find that many have Facebook accounts.
Since 2005 I've been working to get people organized around the concepts of freedom as espoused by our founders. I've owned many websites, on a variety of platforms, with these specific goals, educate the masses, organize them for action, and restore the republic.
In late 2010 I purchased a new web address and migrated our social networking platform to it. Once we updated the software to allow Facebook members to join with just a few clicks, and opened the doors the people began joining by the thousands. They began self organizing, sharing and taking action, on their own initiative. We finally achieved a pure, organic social network dedicated to spreading the message of freedom.
The new website found at http://RTR.org functions as a Social Network, and permits you to use your Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, or Google login to enter the site. That is only one of the powerful features. Aside from the ability to network with over 31,000 patriots using the site, you can use it as your base of operations for your daily political outreach and edification.
You can command your entire “Social Universe” by broadcasting your RTR “status update” to Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn, with just one click. Likewise, at RTR, when you post a video, create an event, join a group or upload a picture from rally you just attended, with one click it can viewed and shared by the masses at RTR and by your friends on your other networks.
Just like Obama used Facebook to carry his message to the masses we can use RTR.org as our base camp to launch salvos into Facebook. With this online resource you will be able to effectively spread the freedom message while being updated with the latest trending news and information, as it happens from the members online.
Take a moment and check us out on the web at http://RTR.org. If you like the site, help us grow by inviting your friends from Facebook using the Invite feature at http://RTR.org/invite.
We have a mission, it is to infect the internet with the message of freedom and liberty, and http://RTR.org is now the hub for you to do just that.
Let’s tap into the social conciseness of the nation.
