House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Pelosi) was recently credited with saying this about protesters camped out in front of her home:

"[...] if they were poor, and they were sleeping on my sidewalk, they'd be arrested for loitering, but because they have 'impeach Bush' across their chest, it's the First Amendment." (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2007/10/10/protesters-building-large_n_67826.html?load=1&page=3#comments)

Some people took offense at that. I, however, see a great idea: turn the homeless into activists.

Activists, here's how it works: You hand out shirts and blankets with your message printed on them to the homeless. Guide them to the home of an elected official and drop off food and drink for them there. While they keep your message ever-present, you'll be free to raise money and awareness elsewhere. It's a win-win situation for you and the homeless, courtesy of Nancy Pelosi.
