The Republican party is wise in their crafty ways in Knox County, They take certain people who they know can't win, Give them money and a little encouragement and put them on their way, and it takes away votes from their strongest opponent!! Everyone is mad in May after the election, Heart's broken, Large cases of the red ass!! But here's when everything gets real, They the Republican party in Knox come together like a pile of dog shit in a cantaloupe patch drawing flies, jobs are given out, they put tiles in, and will even gravel your private drives!! New friendships are kindled, By the time the Fall election comes, Everyone is in bed together again!! The Democrat party stands no chance in Knox County unless it's a Republican they can't stand or a Democrat that they can turn into a puppet on a string!! Also don't forget the dead Presidents!!
Good read

Modern technology and the internet[edit]

Main article: Internet activism

The internet is now a core element of modern political campaigns. Communication technologies such as e-mail, web sites, and podcasts for various forms of activism to enable faster communications by citizen movements and deliver a message to a large audience. These Internet technologies are used for cause-related fundraising, lobbying, volunteering, community building, and organizing. Individual political candidates are also using the internet to promote their election campaign. In a study of Norwegian election campaigns, politicians reported they used social media for marketing and for dialogue with voters. Facebook was the primary platform for marketing and Twitter was used for more continuous dialogue.[1]

Signifying the importance of internet political campaigning, Barack Obama's presidential campaign relied heavily on social media, and new media channels to engage voters, recruit campaign volunteers, and raise campaign funds. The campaign brought the spotlight on the importance of using internet in new-age political campaigning by utilizing various forms of social media and new media (including Facebook, YouTube and a custom generated social engine) to reach new target populations. The campaign's social website, , utilized a low cost and efficient method of mobilizing voters and increasing participation among various voter populations.[2] This new media was incredibly successful at reaching the younger population while helping all populations organize and promote action

You are using social media now, so what do you propose that people know or do?
