The Online Community that will "Pound the Pavement" in Every Local Community

Our thoughts for this group are not really an organizing effort of yet another group for folks to join and incur responsibility, indeed that is one of our greatest fears in the new information age, overload, addiction, the theft of peoples offline lives as they become more immersed in networking and the technologies that follow them everywhere they go.

Unlike Facebook, Myspace, Linkedin and others there will not be an endless troop of new groups or causes marching across your screens. We have very definite goals here as expressed in the "Mission Statement". It may seem there are a lot of groups but if you look closely each has a definite purpose in the Network. They advocate for a social issue important to us, they advocate for candidates running for office, they advocate for some of our great leaders, they represent our individual committee units around the state, they represent Congressional District Committees, they represent Womens Clubs, they represent YR's, College, Teens and so on. Each group fills a particular niche, we try to be careful in who is setting them up and we try to not have duplication. When someone comes here we want them to be able to get the information they need very quickly, comment, socialize or network without having a universe to search through, or being bombarded with offers to join multiple groups for the same causes.

Our main purpose is to create an information resource for Virginia Republicans and do it in a way that allows them to network with each other, help each other, announce events statewide, present the Candidates and offer a place for them to share views with others and network socially online. We do not want to steal their lives away, we hope to provide the opportunity for them to find what they need quickly and get back to the grassroots efforts they are involved in, because we all know, that is where the votes are won.

Our vision for this group, is such a resource. We hope to get as many folks to join and contribute as possible. As they comment on ideas, techniques or technologies we will try to split out separate forums by area of interest. As new developments in technology for the grassroots become available we hope to share them with everybody.

For those looking for a role beyond commenting, we will be looking for some members with expertise in particular areas to moderate or be admin on the forums here, as it grows.

We want this group and website to enhance the on the ground "Grassroots" efforts in every community around the state. We wish to take little and give back a lot.

To all, our best wishes in all your endeavors, keep clicking those keys but don't forget to save time, to "pound some pavement"!!

It looks like they've yanked that ad from the ABOUT.COM page I mentioned. I even tried it several times before posting about it to make sure it wasn't a temporary ad. Guess we're being monitored. That's not the first time I've seen this ad where it didn't belong, even on recipe websites! I don't care if they maintain their own webpage to spew their crap, but keep politics out of everyday places that everyone uses.

Sue G,
From the tenor of the site, there is a very definite liberal bias, they probably file the anti-Bob ads under the category "educational"!
Comment by Tom Whitmore on May 3, 2009 at 3:23pm
The McDonnell campaign is very aware of the Ad. Someone linked it here two weeks ago and started a big bruha. Although the ad is presented in a negative light, Gee whiz, he is guilty of all those things that cause all of us to be labeled "Right Wing Extremists"!

After seeing the results of the poll on keeping "In God We Trust" on our money, 85+ percent for keeping, I don't think the anti religion card is worth as much as the left thinks. Take away the negative tone and it would actually be a pretty good ad for us.

You’re charged only if someone clicks your Promoted Videos promotion, not when the promotion is displayed.

So the more you click on the ad the more they are charged? I wonder how much a click costs them...Hehehe!

If you're really into this, check out the blog article on GOP 12

Yoni Cohen, the contact for the PAC, said it has purchased ads on more than 200 Web sites, many of them women-specific, including Web sites that would appear to have only a tangential Virginia connection.

But that’s the beauty of online marketing, according to Cohen and a Google spokeswoman.

It’s possible to display the ads aimed at Virginians only to visitors with Internet service provider numbers in Virginia through what Google calls geo-targeting.

Who or what is a Yoni Cohen? I may be mistaken but he was Western Regional director for communications for DNC during the Democratic convention...

Anyway, Google is helping the Dems "geo-target" Virginians. Isn't it great?
(I'm being sarcastic.)
HOWEVER< HAVING SAID THAT, there is nothing that prevents the Republicans from doing the exact same thing.

Common Sense Virginia's sole reported Donor: The Democratic Governors Association
Comment by MEC 20151 on May 3, 2009 at 2:23pm
"Common Sense Virginia" appears to be Unions...
Another site http://www.virginiacommonsense.com/
is sponsored by the Republican Governor's Association and makes this claim. McDonnell's pages link to this under the Rubric of "Out of State Attacks"
No info at the moment from Common Sense Virginia about Common Sense Virginia itself--
Comment by Lisa Miller on May 3, 2009 at 2:17pm
Who is the underwriter of the ads and website?
Comment by MEC 20151 on May 3, 2009 at 2:15pm
McDonnell has also been the target of online ads. Common Sense Virginia, a group backed by Democratic organizations, recently launched TheRealBobMcDonnell.com, a site whose home page is a mock of McDonnell's official site and shows the mug of the former state attorney general alongside those of former president George W. Bush, radio host Rush Limbaugh and religious broadcaster Pat Robertson. The group is heavily advertising on female-oriented sites.

==> from a Washington Post article at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/04/28/AR2009042803419.html?sid=ST2009042804112&sub=AR that bob's website refers to..

So why don't we start a group and call it "Moms for Bob"?
