2014 Pink Slip to Congress Campaign
Do you remember WND’s 2009 Pink Slip Campaign?
To refresh your memory, it resulted in more than 9 million messages delivered to members of the House and Senate on pink paper – 850,000 in just three days! It got their attention. And. more importantly, it led to one of the biggest voter revolts in American history a year later.
It was a way of reminding members of Congress – Democrats and Republicans – who they work for, who pays their salaries and who sent them to Washington. It was a not-so-subtle way to let them know they might be back on the job market in November.
How big was it? The campaign depleted all the supplies of the pink paper in North America. Boxes of the pink slips filled congressional offices. It was a site to behold. Piled one on top of another, 9 million pink slips would be three times the height of the Washington Monument.
Members of Congress were buzzing about the phenomenon. Rep. Tom Price, R-Georgia, said they were “talking about it, but they’re only talking about it behind closed doors and in the elevators as they go up and down and in very whispered tones. What you hear are people saying, ‘How many of those did you get or how many people came to your office today? And what are you going to do and how are you going to vote on this?’”
Then-Sen. Jim DeMint went on Fox News Channel to applaud the campaign. Reps. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., Steve King, R-Iowa, Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., and Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, publicly thanked the campaign at a televised press conference on Capitol Hill.
“It’s an amazing feat, to get that many slips to Congress,” King told WND. “If you look through them, you can index each one back to an individual. That’s powerful. There is a person behind each one of the slips.”
Well, the innovative Pink Slip Campaign is back for 2014.
The secret of its success is the delivery method. All the pink slips are sent using FedEx, ensuring actual delivery to congressional offices. The messages are bundled for delivery by recipient to keep the costs down and to increase the impact.
“If ever there was a time to bring this concept back, it’s now,” said WND’s Joseph Farah. “Americans are frustrated beyond words at what is happening in Washington. There’s no accountability. They desperately need another wakeup call.”
If you’d like to bury Congress in pink slips again, now’s your chance.
