Barack Obama decision to not give away yard signs etc. is boneheaded
Senator Barack Obama decision not to freely give away yard signs and other promotional items is a mistake for several reasons. The decision ignores the "bandwagon effect" which is the influence on people caused by other people’s beliefs and actions. This is expressed in two ways. First, it counteracts the bandwagon effect going in Sen. John McCain direction and second it causes a bandwagon effect going in Sen. Obama direction. The more Obama/Biden yard signs and other messaging agents that are seen by the general public, the stronger the bandwagon effect will pull people toward the Democratic Presidental ticket.
The decision ignores the effects that advertising has on the public — building loyalty, creating buzz, converting friends, etc.
These types of promotional items are a excellent method to keep Obama name before the public and in their conscience.
Sweep your Obama/Biden enthusiasm through your neighborhood by displaying Obama/Biden bumper stickers, yard signs etc.
Because supporters are having trouble finding Obama/Biden items, I have added Obama/Biden buttons, magnets, bumper stickers, yard signs, and t-shirts with state names on the items to the Truthmonk store. Click "Obama/Biden Items with State Names" to go directly the department or click the navigation "CafePress Store" button to go to the store’s lobby. The available states are: California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Iowa, michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, new York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Wisconsin.
