You can use a bracket system similar to the NCAA Basketball
Tournament to highlight 16 of the most radical liberals and their
extreme statements. This activity will encourage participation from
other students and, if marketed correctly, build anticipation about whom
your student body picked as the "maddest" liberal in the country.
Young America’s Foundation has already compiled a list of sixteen liberal leaders and their top "moment of madness." But feel free to use your own!
Begin by reserving a table in the student union or another high
traffic area on campus for the entire week. Announce your plans to the
local and campus press and advertise that students can come by your
location to begin voting.
Create your bracket system on a dry erase board, chalk board, or
poster board that can be displayed by your table. On each bracket,
include the name and the picture of each leftist. Consider purchasing
Velcro strips that can be attached to each name to allow you to move the
name to the next series of brackets.
To assist with voting, make fliers or leaflets available which
provide the "moment of madness" for each liberal. Keep a rolling tally
on your display of the votes each liberal receives.
Create specific and well-publicized times when students may
choose their favorites. We recommend that selection occur on consecutive
days beginning on Monday with the top 16 and ending with the final two
on Thursday. Each day, announce the winners from the previous round
before proceeding with the next round of voting.
If marketed properly, anticipation should build among students as to which prominent leftist wins for the number one slot.
