Bush is using the vote or die tactic on Kerry, why can't Kerry use this same tactic to attract the minority youth vote?
It's simple, Vote for John Kerry or get drafted. If you properly frame this statement you could make out an ad which would for sure convince a lot of college aged minorities into voting for Kerry.
Is anyone here willing to actually create posters or ads targeting the youth to get them to vote?
This idea originally comes from another diary titled Citizens United to Keep You Alive Four More Years
Citizens United to Keep You Alive Four More Years
I think this would be the key to increasing voter turn out. Any young minority can be convinced to vote for Kerry, even a conservative wants to avoid the draft.
How to frame the arguement? 1000 youth, mostly minority, have died in Iraq. Bush is the direct cause of these deaths in Iraq. Bush wants to go to war with other countries, this is a question of life and death. Who wants to be drafted? How can people avoid a draft? Which President is more likely to draft minority youth?
This is where Sean Combs, Russell Simmons, Eminem and many others can get involved and actually have some success. I don't think Kerry can speak to the youth.
