Campaign for Liberty — Learn Social Media By Example

Our country is ailing.  That is the bad news.  The good news is that the remedy is so simple and attractive: a return to the principles our Founders taught us. Respect for the Constitution, the rule of law, individual liberty, sound money, and a noninterventionist foreign policy constitute the foundation of the Campaign for Liberty“. – From the campaign’s Statement of Principles

Idea & Objectives:

Campaign for Liberty

Campaign for Liberty

The Campaign for Liberty’s mission is to promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a noninterventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity.

It is worth mentioning here that the Campaign for Liberty is the name of the actual organization carrying out this mission for liberty. This is quite interesting to me since it is the second organization’s name I come across which defines itself as a campaign. What I can deduce from this is that people are more likely to “follow” or “support” a certain organization or cause if its name entailed “campaign”, which shows virality, unity and a real goal.

According to government data, obesity in the United States now carries the hefty price tag of $147 billion per year in direct medical costs, just over 9 percent of all medical spending.

In fact, people who are obese spend almost $1,500 more each year on health care — about 41 percent more than an average-weight person. “Beyond those costs are the disability and early deaths caused by obesity“, says Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Therefore, First Lady Michelle Obama kicked off a campaign to try to end childhood obesity within a generation. The campaign is called “Let’s Move.”

Idea & Objectives:

For the first time in American history, children’s life expectancy may be shorter than their parents’. This called for fast and effective actions to be made!

“Let’s Move” aims to do for healthy eating and exercise what the government’s anti-smoking campaign did in the 1960s: change how people think about their health.

Law & Lawsuits: Legal Systems Limiting Freedom on the Internet!

The small laws, the big laws, the rightful laws, the new laws, the old laws and so on; the wide list of law descriptive terms is endless! Yet, when it comes to freedom, especially over a loose medium such as the Internet, there is but one question one should ask: Are the laws unlawfully limiting the freedom of individuals using the Internet?
