“60 Seconds For Bob”

The following is an email sent to those registered with the Bob Barr email list.

Dear Friend,

Yesterday, I asked you to tell a friend about Bob Barr and today we have an additional 294 folks who have subscribed to our e-mail list.  Good job!

60 Seconds for BobNow for today’s task: YouTube! is an incredible place to get the word out about our campaign.  They have even created a special section, YouChoose, to highlight presidential candidates.  Unfortunately, they are currently choosing to highlight only John McCain and Barack Obama.

All other candidates, including Bob Barr, are listed under “More Campaigns” and are mixed in with congressional and state campaigns.

Before we start complaining to YouTube about evident bias that favors the two-party system, we need to do our part and show that we deserve the same treatment as McCain and Obama.

So here’s the task:

1.    Go to and login or create an account.
2.    Visit Bob Barr’s YouTube page here:
3.    On the left hand side, click on the yellow “Subscribe” button.
4.    Hit play on one of Bob’s videos.

That’s it!

Later today when you have more time, watch as many videos as you can.  The more video views that we have, the higher we climb on the “YouChoose” page. Right now we are in 19th place with 379,675 views.

That does it for today’s “60 Seconds for Bob!”

In Liberty,

Shane Cory
Deputy Campaign Manager
Bob Barr for President

P.S. In order to get you more involved in the progress of the campaign, I want to include a few campaign statistics at the bottom of each day’s message.  These are some of the numbers that I personally review each morning to measure the strength of our campaign.

Some are impressive, others are not, but with this transparency and reporting, I hope that it will help you be more effective in your activism for our presidential candidate.
