If you're looking for ideas, make one about how unions destroy business, and get into the cycle of Dems keeping unions alive, to receive funding by unions.  I don't always see that getting into detail, and would be a good one for you to generate content.  If it's good, we'll put it up on the front page on the side for a while.

Awesome Idea! That just may be our very next video...I cannot stand the unions and have a ton of facts to give out.

You mean change 'What if?' We could but man it would be difficult to change...what suggestions? Or do you mean the picture of What if? We are in the process
I'm with Taxed on this. Remember the reaction you first encountered here when you joined and where I moved this?
No one likes to associate with conspiracy freaks of any kind, it immediately classifies them in a small percentage group of nut cases, like Rosie O and her 911 claims.

I'd step back and take a closer look at who you are, what message you are trying to project and not insult your audience, or for that matter, select your audience rather than attracting the fringe freaks.
I can't watch your videos and I'm not alone, most of rural America can't either, so just having a site based on video kills more than half your target audience.
Secondly, video only, targets the LIV portion, the "too lazy" to read and learn, so consider transcripts so people have something to link or quote when using your material for debate.

Nothing loses a debate faster than posting a link to a youtube video.
What you may want to consider, is approaching a marketing blog, see if anyone is interested in playing with ideas on what direction to proceed, but the one you've taken, IMO, is a nonstarter.
If I could watch videos I could give you better advice, but at this point, you have a non textual site without description, and google search hates that they have nothing to rank, let alone categorize you with, what do they have to go on when placing you in search because they have no text for comparison, so your'e limiting yourself in that area as well.

What about something along these lines:


The animation is simple, but really breaks down how minimum wage hurts people.  You could re-use the same concept for a topic on unions.

First let me say, what a great video. Yes, it's simple but very good.

Solar, although it is a video, we put in tags for google searches. I agree, I'm not really a video watcher, I like to read also...but we live in a new age and most people (liberals) do not. Writing a blog is a great idea, however, these videos take up a ton of time and we do make a little revenue. Last weekend we had approximately 5k views and made about $10 so not really worth it just yet. Only when those views get up to over 100k do we start making anything worth talking about. I do not know how blogs work and how to make any revenue from them. I barely know how this forum works. Money isn't the main goal, but it does add to the list of hobby's that can generate some income. I try to only have hobbies that bring in some kind of money. 3d printing, drone building (home security drones), fixing cars, tv's, electronics. They rarely bring in as much as I spend but I do like to have the knowledge and usually can break even. For these videos, I spent about $600 on software and equipment, so only $590ish more to go to break even!

The 'What If' started out to draw the fringe crowd in and the liberals. We wanted to do something fun while also teaching about big government. The problem we face is that liberals do not understand our history. Although they are educated, they are oblivious to our nations past. Example: my girlfriend went to college and had a 3.9 GPA, she doesn't know anything...I asked her the other day after watching a 'Jaywalking' segment, who our VP is and she drew a blank. So yes we are conservatives but really we are trying to draw in the opposite group. We want to give a history lesson with most of the videos while also throwing in 'fringe' things for entertainment.

That is why we wanted some help doing this. Most conservatives don't need this information, they know our history and vote responsibly. Conservatives by nature are readers rather than watchers, for the reasons you mentioned. Liberals are very different and that is my target audience. We want the young kids that usually watch stupid stuff on Youtube, so that they can see something actually worth watching.

Does that make any sense? I'm working and think I started rambling a little

You miss the point.
Start your own site, explain your mission, give a description of said videos, then post them, via youtube to your own site.
Include Discuss so those watching can debate their merits.
This also attracts 10 times the amount of traffic youtube does, if not more.

Unions just got over-ruled...my brother is union and although he agrees with this, he cannot risk losing his job at Coke. Which sucks because I was really looking forward to that. We will just have to keep that on the back-burner for now since he is not in a position to tell them to go to hell.

He made the mistake of telling people at work what we were doing.

He was stupid enough to tell people at his work about it and they subscribed...One is his Union Rep...I told him to shut up about it but now it seems that he put us in a difficult situation. One, makes me feel trapped and forced to stay away from certain controversies (which is against the idea of this channel), two, makes me want to do something against unions even more now, but must respect brother.
