Operation Live Free or Die, the grassroots campaign to win the New Hampshire Primary, has asked for help:


HELP NEEDED!

We've been going door to door here in New Hampshire every day and we are running out of materials! Believe it or not, HQ has done a very lame job of providing the proper slim jims and of course they do not offer any DVD's. If anyone could ship us DVD's and slim jims (Free Enterprize, Tax Free Tips, Independent, Veterans, Small Farmer) I can promise you that they will be put to excellent us in the most crucial primary in the nation. send me a message if you are able to help out with this.

We are seeing a lot of support here for Dr. Paul, I know he can win! Most people are still undecided and we need to help me make the right decision. These materials are desperately needed to cover specific issues that voters care about.
NOTE: Roxi of OLFD has requested that you not contact HQ in regards to securing supplies, that is already being handled.

I can think of no better effort to make a massive difference in the outcome of the New Hampshire primary and thus the entire election. Without proper campaign materials, the entire operation would be brought to a standstill. Please assist!

The OLFD thread is stickied in Grassroots Central: learn more about it and consider helping as there is lots of work to be done.

Here is the link to their donation page and website: http://operationlivefreeordie.com/donate.html
Here is their forums, which is just getting started: http://www.operationlivefreeordie.com/forum/index.php

These are two more chipins of very active OLFD members who will do much with these funds:

How can the campaign not provide this stuff? How embarrasing. People want to support Ron and his campaign will not provide them literature. Someone needs to contact the campaign.

Is it ok to print official campaign literature and sell it? I know they have a store, but I am party owner of a printing company and 5.00/hundred is not a deal. Either they are paying way too much for printing or they are trying to make money off of these. I do not begrude them want to raise money, but I would think they would want the people to have these to send out

Someone needs to call NH and the main HQ this morning, and make something happen.

There is no way that the campaign should be leaving OLFD hanging out to dry like this. If Ron knew, he would be ashamed of what they are putting up with.

When supplies run short, as stopgap, flyers can be printed on a computer printer or Kinkos.

They need housing most of all!!!!!!!!! Please donate to their chip in. Lots of people have said they are interested in coming if housing is available. This money will = full time boots on the ground. I think this is the best investment in the campaign you can make.

pdf's are supplied by the campaign website, that implies to me it's ok, even encouraged to print them

YES, GET ON THE PHONE AND CALL THEM ASAP!! I called the main HQ requesting literature for a gun show and they promptly shipped it to me!

If you get no help, PM me and I can assist with some slim jims!

OK please don't call HQ - we are in contact with them and it isn't so much a not getting us materials thing as it is needing to approve what were getting. Since were doing the Voter ID canvassing HQ wants to approve EVERYTHING were handing out. HOWEVER after voter ID canvassing we do A CRAP ton of promoting that we need supplies for that isn't HQ approved.

we also need liberty cards desperately

also consider donating to Laura's or my chip ins as well... that money is in real time coming straight into the house were living in, to pay for TP, food, housing these people and bills... because of PAC issues, were havent seen any of the donations going to the official chip in. Vijay isn't here in NH yet (he will be here saturday)

Laura and wes are paying the majority of costs to run this house and were chipping in where we can so any donations going into our personal chip ins will go to the 10 people living in this house

here are the links to our chipins

Many people say, Gee it must be nice to have the money to just pack up and move to New Hampshire. The reality is that we DON'T HAVE THE MONEY. We are going into debt to do this. Thousands of dollars. So if anyone has any heart, as we are fighting not just for our future, but for YOURS as WELL, please donate to help us get some of our money back. Yesterday out group hit over 300 houses. Today they are pushing for even more. It's FREEZING cold here, and we're going door to door, taking our two small children with us in their car seats. Most of you out there can't, nor do you want to do this. Please, out of the bottom of my heart I am petitioning you to help out with our chip in and Roxie's chip in.

We asked our meetup group at home to help us out financially. Out of the entire group, people that have witnessed firsthand our dedication and hard work for the past 6 months in our hometown, not ONE SINGLE PERSON DONATED ANYTHING. This was very discouraging.

We're out here winning votes people. Please help.

@ ThomasPaine - I see the ChipIn is $999. Is this to avoid forming a PAC?

If so, I think it is a good idea. :D

I have found someone that can make 100 DVDs an hour for 40 cents a piece with a small sticker/label

Same DVD as ronpauldvdproject except that there is no printing directly on the disc.

Im working on raising some money.

Also i need to find an Image (ISO,etc....) file of the disc online, so people can see what they are donating for....

We have 40 New Yorkers coming to NH for canvassing this Sat and im trying to get a couple hundred discs minimum.

laura talked to the FEC today, because all the money we are bringing in is going to support us, and buy materials that we are using, and not cash going to the campaign that we don't have to form a PAC no matter how much the donations get to!

so donate away people

We have received some big donations today and we are SO GRATEFUL. Thank you for bumping this and raising awareness about what we are doing here in New Hampshire.

Roxi and Jay are still in need of funds. They quit their jobs and sold their stuff to get money to drive up here. They are living on donations from supporters for gas to canvas, food, etc.

Please help support them as well. Thank you!!

I wish there were a single, unofficial campaign fund for things like this and the blimp and the USA today ads, etc. Something run by grassroots supporters. I would donate to that instead of the official campaign. I just don't see where any of the money is going, every volunteer group is dipping into their own pockets to fund their efforts and you practically have to beg the campaign for weeks/months to get even the most modest spending approved for anything. As far as I know, they're only spending on things like commercials that nobody I know even watches anymore. Have they heard of DVRs??

Hell, even getting (the overpriced) campaign materials takes at least a week and a half, and we don't have time for such delays. I love everything Ron Paul stands for, but I continue to be very unimpressed by how his staff is running things. I've donated today and I'll donate again on the 16th, but aside from the "bomb"/feel good factor, I largely consider it money wasted. If all the supporters from my meetup group had pooled their money together, instead of donating, I have little doubt that we'd be able to get more people donating to him than would have if we continue to leave all spending decisions to the official campaign.

Then again, I've heard that weird election laws are largely responsible for much of this mess. Yet again, another government program for Ron to rollback.

Is it ok to print official campaign literature and sell it?

The campaign needs to make its digital proofs available for download, for people to be able to print out locally.

e.g. h ttp://my.barackobama.com/page/content/resourceflyers/
