Vote For Me Yourself, and Bring 80 Others Who Will Do the Same...

You know the political party you founded is in trouble when, in the founding ceremony, you have to resort to MLM BS mathematics to encourage the faithful.

Israeli politician Ehud Barak had recently founded a new political party, Atzmaut [Independence]. In the founding ceremony [link in Hebrew], he said (my translation):
In this room there are only 80 people... but if each one of them brings 80 people, and so on, we will get 20 mandates [out of 120 in the Israeli Parliament]. 
Barak's math is slightly off. If things do in fact go "and so on" four times, they will have not 20 mandates -- about 1,000,000 votes in Israel -- but 40,000,000+ votes. Unfortunately Israel's entire population is about 7,500,000.
