It’s all in the numbers.
Or the power of exponents is more accurate.
What are exponents? They are very powerful multipliers.
Here’s how they work and how we get to 50 million signatures and beyond!
Let’s say one person on Saturday October 1st takes the national referendum poll, then tells two — only two! — others about it.
As we already mentioned, these two people are not just anyone. They are members of his or her family, close friends, people at the church or synagogue where he or she goes, but most importantly, they are people who are concerned about the future of this country and what it holds for them and their loved ones. They are two other individuals who will take the poll, because they are determined to do something good for themselves, their family, their neighbors, their community, America. And they will likewise each tell two others who are sure to take the poll and tell two others about this campaign.
Getting the picture?
One person takes the poll, then tells two people, who the next day each take the poll and tell two people. These four people the following day take the poll and tell eight people. These eight people the next day do the same. On and on, day by day, each person telling just two others, but always two others who are certain to take the poll and continue the process.
One times two times two times two . . .
Without using a smart phone, the internet, or a calculator, take a guess how long it would take to get 50 million signatures this way.
Really. Take a wild stab at it.
The answer might really surprise you.
On October 27th, four days before Halloween and a full eleven days before election day 2016, would have 67,108,864 signatures.
In only 27 days!
But it starts with YOU. Right now!
We will do our part.
Just do yours.
