The Delaware C Corp

American Politics Company

This is the public landing page for our venture to fix American politics.

TL;DR (the novel ideas)

  1. SuperPAC as a service (we handle liability, KYC, calling up Outfront … all the bullshit). Kickstarter, Gofundme, Stripe … for politics.
  1. Negative CAC … every QR code / link will point not to your page directly (unless you pay $$$) but to meetbilly.co/m/plumber/fix-showerhead-flow-regs (or whatever your campaign is called). users will be able to comment, like, share the ad … remix it … or pay to keep the billboard up / send the mailer to more people. Eventually, they will notice that they too can advertise with Billy.
  1. Back to physical. Digital is Joever. We’ll do it, eventually, accidentally, but we’re starting local (SF) and starting very physical. Billboards, mailers, posters, yard signs.
