I guess I'm in shock. I just looked at the meet-ups in my area (long Island) and to find that the NYC Ron Paul Meet-Up does not even have the March on Washington as a Meet-up is very disheartening. That is over 1,200 members. What has happened to the revolution?



http://ronpaul.meetup.com/50/ 1,200 members, no mention of March

http://ronpaul.meetup.com/150/ 129 members, no mention of March

http://ronpaul.meetup.com/5/ 273 members, no mention of March

http://ronpaul.meetup.com/143/ 71 members, no mention of March

http://ronpaul.meetup.com/1331/ 96 members, no mention of March

http://ronpaul.meetup.com/552/ 49 members, no mention of March

http://ronpaul.meetup.com/1358/ 73 members, no mention of March

This is all in my general area. Check out your own by putting Ron Paul's name in the meet-up search box.

This is a disgrace.

the march is not the revolution IMO.

I find it a big distraction and a waste of time and effort.

the march is not the revolution IMO.
It is part of it - just as all the other activities centered around Freedom & Liberty:

The Delegate Process
Recruiting Precinct Committemen & Committeewomen
Freedom Tour '08
Revolution by Mail
Revolution Broadcasting
Operation St. Paul
The RLC


I find it a big distraction and a waste of time and effort.

Distration from WHAT?
If people enjoy themeselves and turn more people onto the message - how could it possibly be a "Waste of Time & Effort"?


BTW -

http://ronpaul.meetup.com/166/ - 319 members, been on the calendar since the official date was announced.

a distraction from local efforts. All politics are local.

We haven't even completed our state convention process.

I would also like my meetup to help both Baldin and Barr getting ballet access and to increase their name recognition.

It's a shame. If we can't get our own Ron Paul supporters who went out of their way to start Ron Paul meet-ups....to simply put a post about the March on Washington on their own boards.....how can we expect to pass the word?

Those of us who do have meet-ups that are participating need to write to those meet-up organizers who are asleep at the wheel and tell them to wake up!

This needs to be an all out effort. We certainly have a lot of good people working on this March and they deserve the Ron Paul supporter to do all they can.

Ron Paul asked for this March....have the Revolutionaries forgotton? Even if you can't be there, you can pass the word and donate!

I'm going to go and email all those dead meet-up organizers now. Hopefully other's will join me.

ack, I just checked out the largest Ron Paul meet-ups.....Austin, Tx, Boston, MA, Columbus, OH......no mention of the March on July 12th

HOW SAD IS THIS!

I contacted my meetup group (Ron Paul Republicans of Greater Harrisburg) a few days ago and TOLD them to put it on the calendar....so far, nothing. I mean, it probablytakes five seconds to add something to that calendar, but they can't be bothered. WTF?

You know who will be crucial to the numbers?

DC meetups, Virgina meetups, and Maryland meetups. They are all connected via the metro service - which is efficient - and could really increase attendance pretty easily.

We should focus on getting them ALL to attend.

Aside from the meet-up groups, NUMEROUS "Revolution" websites also mention NOTHING of the March.

This event has the potential to be a catalyst for the movement that Dr. Paul has inspired us all to be a part of and carry forward. The march on July 12th has the ability to make or break us. It would be a great disappointment if there are only 500 people

When I go to a sites like infowars.com, freedom-force.org, freestateproject.org it saddens me that the march is not even mentioned, let alone a banner or so. If those of us who wish to bring change and return the country to some form of "constitutional" governance it is vital that we pool our resources and most importantly support the various moneybombs and events.

I will forward this thread to our promotions coordinator and find out what's up. I know that we are on a lot of sites. If you wouldn't mind Rampanthog, would you provide a list of sites we aren't listed on? It cracks me up that we're not on Freedom Force when in all likelihood, Griffin will be a speaker (contingent on whether we can afford his travel expenses).

Way to go Gigi! Thank you x 1000!

A lot of us working on the march are counting on you in the community to think of your own ideas to get the word out. Check our website for banners to send them.

Please don't hesitate to contact meetups and webmasters about promoting the march. We're doing our best to cross-promote all of the other actions in the movement.

Ah, but the cause is right at the beginning of your post.

You are in SHOCK, yes SHOCK I say... but WHY?

If YOU had been actively participating in those meetups the you would have been aware that activity has tapered off to essentially zero; and you wouldn't have been "shocked" -- ERGO YOU have not been involved in any of those meetups.

So why the heck do you think OTHER people should be?:confused:

So you need to OWN the disgrace yourself, and not shove it onto other people.

(BTW, if a meetup leader -- who is probably paying for the meetup service -- sets up events and no one shows up or expresses interest in anything further, exactly WHY do you expect they would bother to continue to do so? And as MOST of the states were completely ignored by the (now virtually non-existent) "official campaign" even WHEN their primaries were going on -- well now that they're over and done, there is little reason to continue scheduling events or having meetings that no one will come to is there?)

If you ARE so concerned... step up to the plate -- offer to be an assistant organizer and YOU go fill in all of the things on the calendar that you think are so needful. Stuff doesn't happen by itself.

wow, what an idiot you are, eh? What the hell was that all about??

KMA ok? I am the meet-up organizer of the Nassau/Suffolk Long Island Meet-up 200 people and we have NEVER stopped participating! We continue to have events, go to Republican meetings, and MEET! So excuse me for being shocked that meet-ups in my area aren't active like we are???? I just didn't bother to CHECK THE MEET-UPS around me as evidentily no one else did either...I guess we all ASSUMED that people were as involved as we were...but I guess not. Hence the SHOCK.

But you don't shock me. You sound like another arrogant idiot posing as a Ron Paul supporter but basically just here to stir pots.

I just think you're all being rather silly.

Do you truly think that the groups that have gone dormant can somehow be "revived" by sending one or several emails to the organizers, or that having them add those events to the calendars will make a difference?

Meetup organizers get lots of emails from people promoting all kinds of foolishness... each one with THE IDEA that if of utmost importance to everyone today. One email is about buying dried beans, peas and rice in huge bulk quantities, another is giving advice on how to BEST "takeover" at our upcoming state convention (which is already over) in order to "sneak" Ron Paul delegates onto our state's roster (which delegates are not even chosen at our state convention, etc etc).

Most people are just starting to hit the "ignore" or "delete" button with all of the emails because it has all become so fractured and chaotic.

(Oh, and as your original post made NO MENTION nor any indication at all that you were a meetup organizer -- you can stick your insults where the sun doesn't shine. I did not insult you by calling you names, so why do you respond that way? Simply because you didn't LIKE what I wrote? Pretty poor reason.)

Some meetups are focusing on nothing but the delegate process and other local events.

Some meetups are just dying out. Sad but true.

Some meetups have stepped back because they feel what will be is happening and it's time to batten down the hatches now. They are "laying low".

That's what I found when I was contacting meetups for another project and was equally dismayed over the lack of responses. But- that was the jist of it.

06-06-2008, 02:48 PM
I will tell you what happened to our meet up. When the primary was over and Ron Paul said to stay in the GOP and take it over...it killed the meet up. Not everyone in the meet up were republicans...they changed to republican to vote in the Florida closed primary ..and most of them went back to their party or became independents. Only a hand full out of 100 people stayed in the GOP. Most were independents or libertarians.. I started a libertarian party here in my area because we never had one...and they are very bitter at me...and have called me everything in the book. They killed their meet up by isolating the people who wanted to continue the message in another party.

GigiBowman
06-06-2008, 02:54 PM
I guess the bottom line is that everyone who ever joined a Ron Paul meet-up must like Ron Paul or be a Ron Paul supporter. Whether or not the meet-up is dead or alive...if it's still there, it's been paid for....so how hard would it be for the organizer to post a meet-up for July 12th saying "The March on Washington is July 12th" Ron Paul wanted the March, he got it and we should all be there. Now, its quite understandable if people can't go. But it's not understandable why --of all places-- a Ron Paul Event should not be Posted on a Ron Paul Meet-up.

There are 1,442 meet-ups. If we all do one state we'll have it covered.

I'm doing New York.....NOW

GigiBowman
06-06-2008, 03:17 PM
ok, I just did the 12 I was allowed to do and then I posted a plea on the meet-up alliance board.

I'll do more tomorrow when I'm allowed to send email to 12 organizers again.


Still Shocked that out of the 15 I opened....12 had not had the March on Washington posted as a meet-up

You Americans fight too much. Maybe that's whats wrong - Your inability, as a people, to give other people the benefit of the doubt. You seem to have overdeveloped tendencies to leap into the fray with preconceived misconceptions not to mention name calling and insults. The more courteous seem to stay on the margins being courteous,quiet and unnoticed. Or they leave. Why people cannot have differences of opinion without being called on it and deemed a moron never ceases to amaze me. Maybe its a a problem with virtual world; maybe a problem of impetuous youth, but having never stayed any length of time in USA, you lot have made me quiver at the notion of disagreeing with anyone. I'll probably be shot! :eek:

I'll be at the march with bells on. Bravo heroic organizers.

I hope to meet you, Raiha. I'll be on stage briefly, so if you get a chance, find me. I'd like to give you a hug.

Americans are made up of peoples from all over the world. Those of us who are descendants of the founding generations are very strong, independent and somewhat surly. In reading about the personalities of our founders, I can tell you, they debated, argued, fought, and even had duals amongst themselves. It is that stubborn, independent quality in us that makes us who we are.

Let not your heart be troubled by it. Never take our harsh words personally. I'm not trying to excuse bad behavior, or character defects. Those types can generally be found in every community, and it doesn't take a trained 'eye' to detect them and just dismiss them. (and yes, the internet tends to make people behave worse than they otherwise would.)

But as a whole, I think most Americans mean well, some of us are just not always the best at relating to those with whom we disagree. :o

If the "marketing" is left up to the grassroots like the last money bombs were then it will not be big. I would spend money on an actual marketing team to get the word out because without that, it will be hit and miss like the first march/rally.....

Are there any paid marketing efforts going on for the march?

Nobody understands that more than me. I live in New York. The point is...if people just posted it as a meet-up it would give other's a choice of knowing about it and decide for themselves whether they want to go or not. But if their own meet-up doesn't think it's important enough to post....what kind of message does that send out?

I want to call out people like Steven Vincent. I know how much you have done for this Revolution and I know you're working on the "Walk to Freedom" but why can't you still have the Revolution March listed as a meet-up? I don't understand that way of thinking!

We should focus on getting them ALL to attend.

I'm from Maryland and I strongly agree with that. I posted to my MD Ron Paul facebook group a short message about the march. Sadly, most of the MD meetup groups don't have it listed and the ones that do...only a few people said they're going. And then there are still some Marylanders who until this week thought that the march was still in June...

Meet up 5 (NYC) should be adding the event announcement this week. Generally, meetup groups list events that are happening in their local area, within a few weeks of the event. The July 12 march until now was so far off that it was not on the radar screen for promoting. And also, even when I DID promote the April 15 rally in DC for weeks on end, there was little response. I commented after the rally that, "What I did definitely sense is that the 'winding down' rhetoric from Paul, coupled with his decision to not run third party, runs at cross purposes with sustaining the momentum required to promote a high-turnout march or rally at this point. You can't partially put the brakes on the campaign, and simultaneously go full throttle."

you're re-inventing the wheel. We are hoping to launch this today and have 54 volunteers... yes, asking them to add it to the calendar is part of the plan:

You should also be having this conversation on the 511 group, you can reach a lot of organizers over the bridge. Alliance is a message board, not a mailing list and few are active on it. Look at the dates of the last 15 or so messages.

I'm down in the Space Coast of Florida, and the local meet-up groups have divided against each other due to some rather misplaced egos.

I am going to the march, and bringing a few friends with me. If there was enough demand, I would be happy to help charter a bus.

I am happy to help, but have had a hard time finding any cooperative revolutionaries down here. If anyone has any suggestions, I am all ears.

You should also be having this conversation on the 511 group, you can reach a lot of organizers over the bridge. Alliance is a message board, not a mailing list and few are active on it. Look at the dates of the last 15 or so messages.

You know, my intention is not to reinvent any wheels it's to get things done. When I see something wrong I jump in and try and correct it. I started it last week. One week does a difference make? Yeah, I got the NYC group #50 to post it with 1,200+ as well as three other groups who wrote me to confirm they had added it. Did I know you were going to BEGIN to do this? No....do I mean to step on your toes? No. Do I pay attention to the cathearder mail? No. Why? It's just more stuff.... sorry.

So now that you are going to get this done. Be my guest....

All I really care about is that people post the march on their meet-ups.

however it gets done....as long as it gets done.

so get it done guys :)

I am with you on this, I actually posted a great example of how we contacted meetup groups in the past and how well it worked as well. Sometimes you just have to get things moving even if there are other efforts doing the same thing because sometimes you just can't wait for things to get moving.....

Worst thing that happens is we have a few efforts all doing the same thing which will odds are lead to the job getting done faster anyways.

Contact the meetup groups however it needs to get done and if there is one NOT contacted don't simply assume another "effort" will get it done either.

We can work as a team or on different efforts but are all going towards the same goal so no worries.

Here is the post here for those who want to see what worked in the past.
