Remember to ask them to "personally" endorse/support Ron Paul as they tend to respond with something to the effect of "our organization does not endorse any one candidate". Personal letters will work here, I don't think spamming will cut it. I know a lot of us here are atheists, but hey we all know that Freedom is for everyone. Let's contact these people and tell them that we'd love to have them on board.

The key to this sort of effort, whether for Christians or Socialists, is find the ideas that you do agree with, then encourage them to expand that thinking across the spectrum. You have to be careful not to brow beat because that turns away possible supporters. But the beauty of Dr. Paul's message is everyone likes a part of it... we just have to show them why they should support all of it!

Ditto: staunch atheist here needs guidance on these letters! Although, I always say that using Ron Paul's words are the best, so any articles you can find that will appeal to this group should be used. I leave it to the experts on here to identify what those articles are.

Let us know and we will use them!

Atheist here too, if I possess a quarter of Paul's principals the day I die. I will consider myself an accomplished Humanist.

It only make sense that anyone in the Christian Right should put a lot of effort into converting them for Paul. Even start a movement Christian Right For Paul and even start a website by that name.

If you are a member of the Christian Right, then you can speak to them better than those who aren't.

The Christian can focus on the Christian Left. Take out their mud slinging archers and we'll meet you in the middle.:D

This is a short email I sent to all of my friends and family:


As you may know, the Presidential primary elections are about five months away. I want to tell you about the candidate I'm supporting.

His name is Ron Paul. He's been elected ten times by his Texas district to serve in Congress. He supports the Constitution, limited government, stronger borders, wars only in self-defense, and he's firmly pro-life. He and his wife Carol recently celebrated their 50th anniversary, and the arrival of their 18th grandchild. They live out their faith in a way that inspires everyone who knows them.

I share Congressman Paul's views on many issues, but I'm most impressed by his integrity. He opposes socialism. So, as a doctor, he gave discounted or free care to poor families - never accepting Medicare payments. In Congress, he's never voted for an unbalanced budget, a tax increase, or anything he believed was unconstitutional. And he gives part of his office budget back to the treasury every year.

Take a look at his views and his record. And let me know what you think.

You can learn about him at http://RonPaul2008.com

This article by Pastor Chuck Baldwin is a good start.

Here's part of his column titled "Conservative Republicans Have Only One Choice In 2008 (http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/c2007/cbarchive_20070828.html)"

Ron Paul's commitment to the sanctity of human life goes beyond rhetoric. He is the man who sponsored H.R. 776, entitled the "Sanctity of Life Act of 2005." Had it passed, H.R. 776 would have recognized the personhood of all unborn babies by declaring that "human life shall be deemed to exist from conception." The bill also recognized the authority of each State to protect the lives of unborn children. In addition, H.R. 776 would have removed abortion from the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, thereby nullifying the Roe v. Wade decision, and would have denied funding for abortion providers. In plain language, H.R. 776 would have ended abortion on demand.

Dobson's interview on Sean Hannity yesterday made it sound like he just might support one of the "lower tier." I wonder if that still includes Dr. Paul..?

Reminder: If you are a Christian who views yourself as further to the right than the "Christian Right," DON'T try to change their theological views! You're trying to convert them into Ron Paul voters, not members of your faith!
