We CAN Defeat These Predatory, Anti-American Corporations and Here is How

Liberty loving Americans are longing to “do something” honorable and effective in this war against our liberty by the Marxist Left.  Since the election fraud took place, reconciling the empirical evidence with the surrender of free and fair elections by the derelict Supreme Court has been difficult.  Having heard so many longing for direction on what we can actually do about this now  prompts me to humbly share some thoughts on how we can overcome the overwhelming onslaught by predatory corporations run by reprobate CEOs.

Things that must be done

STOP searching on Google.  Alphabet, parent company of Google has an Achille’s heel that few seem to understand.  The company, as large, powerful and arrogant as it is in bullying its own customers has an extraordinary vulnerability. 

WHY THIS CAN ACTUALLY WORK & QUICKLY
For the past couple of decades, despite all the different ventures it has gotten into from self-driving car development to the now ubiquitous Android operating system, one thing has amazingly remained almost unchanged.  The fact is that the vast majority of the company’s total revenue, close to 90% still comes from advertising.  What makes the company quite vulnerable is that over 70% of that advertising revenue comes – search!  Stop and ponder what that really means.  Search is not something that needs to be “sticky” like a unique service or a television series that you love.  Google has enjoyed this “critical mass” for decades basically by becoming a verb.  Search is not esoteric.  Search is not something that any longer needs to be a monopoly.  Google has dramatically changed its algorithms over the years in ways that are shady and underhanded.  In reality, tens of millions of people use Google search every day out of habit but unlike some habits, this one is not addictive or pleasurable.  Alphabet’s Google is enjoying an underserved monopoly, simply resting on its laurels because it became a verb decades ago and people habitually go there without much thought.

Remember back in July 2008 when oil hit its all-time high of $147 a barrel and the extreme pain Americans were suffering at the gasoline pumps?  You may recall there was a gas-price oriented viral e-mail being circulated that was almost as widely received as the plea from the “Nigerian prince” who needed our help as he was trying to flee his country with his loot? 

The lower gasoline price strategy contained within the e-mail was an inherently flawed idea that if everyone banded together and ceased buying from the leading oil company, Exxon Mobile, they would then be forced to slash their prices and bring down the over-all gas prices?  The problem was that oil and gasoline are commodities and the supply limitations would not affect the commodity because usage would still be the same.

The good news is that such a strategy would absolutely work if we banded together and simply ceased “googling”.  I know it is hard to get people to -not watch- the NFL game despite the league’s continued attacks upon this country because it requires some sacrifice to give that up.  I know it is hard to get people to -not buy- their Starbucks coffee despite the company’s incessant war upon our values.  But - do we love our freedom enough to simply stop “googling”?  Can we strain ourselves to simply go to DuckDuckGo.com when we get the urge or need to search for something and download the DuckDuckGo app to our phones and use it instead of Google?  To accomplish what needs to be done with Alphabet’s Google considering their anti-trust law violating declaration of all out war on our freedom of speech, you could even go search on MSN or Yahoo for that matter as those companies, repugnant as they may be, do not monopolize the phone operating systems at present that shut down our access to free-speech supporting apps like Parler. 

If the 80 million freedom loving block of Americans that we are, were to simply stop using Google search starting immediately, the lost ad revenue would rock Alphabet and its subsidiary Google to its core.   Again, 70% of its revenue comes directly from search and another 15%+ comes from ads on Google partnering websites that feature the AdSense advertisements on them.  If you understand how closely investors and Wall Street scrutinize search, engagement and traffic every quarterly earnings release, you know how much a significant drop in these metrics can rock a company’s share-price.  Even a 10% drop in search would be quite damaging and in Google’s case, they are extremely vulnerable beyond what one would expect from a company that is in the ad business because of how “un-sticky” search could and should be once people are awakened to the facts about this company.   If we were to get serious about our freedom and OUR ability to actually do something about this war against it, rather than talk, blog or show up at a rally, this could be a historic campaign towards a villainous company in every sense of the word.

Call the companies that sponsor your favorite content (Newsmax, AON, radio programs, websites) and thank them for sponsoring.  The leftist minority are always well organized for the cause of tyranny and evil in general - and THEY are calling those companies relentlessly to shut our communication down as a part of their Marxist coup.  You may buy the products of these companies and think that is enough but they should hear from us regularly as they may not equate their sales to you as support for that specific content in many cases unless there is a “promo-code” to substantiate from what program it originated.  Call your cable or satellite provider and THANK THEM for carrying Newsmax and OAN (if they do carry them).  They ARE hearing from the organized Marxists who are calling to pressure them.  They should hear from you and me immediately and emphatically.

Lobby your State Government:  When you see companies like Apple and Google de-platforming companies like Parler, contact your state Attorney General’s office.  Go online and file a complaint against those companies.  Call and email them along with your state representatives and senators as well.  Whereas the federal government will encourage this anti-trust law violating behavior, States have substantial power and must learn to se it. 

As we saw a small ISP in Idaho temporarily block access toFacebook for violating free-speech, a bold and inspiring move, on a much larger scale, freedom loving, constitution venerating states now MUST ban together and if such predatory behavior is exerted by these companies, states must unite and take the most extreme steps possible an if need be, ban the sale of Apple products (iphones and Android systems) until such odious actions are corrected.  

If we have to use old recycled phones for a time until this predatory behavior ceases, that is a price we must pay for our God given liberties until competing products to those monopolistic enterprises come to market out of a demand created by their reprehensible, anti-American behavior subsides.  Imagine 30+ states ordering the shutdown of Apple stores and the implications and pressure from carriers and manufacturers like Samsung on Google, losing out on all of those sales.
