Huck got Chuck.

So what about asking Celebrities as well?
Are there any email addresses available somewhere ?
And let's compile a list of people who spoke positively
about Ron so far...

Too bad Lieberman already made his endorsement. :D

I always thought it was pretty ridiculous that Chuck endorsed Huckabee, with that HuckChuck facts thing no less.

Chuck owes his newfound popularity to the internet and the "chuck norris facts" phenomenon. And who is the internet's darling? Ron Paul.

So why didn't he endorse Ron Paul?

Jackass Chuck Norris. Sellout. I think Huckabee paid him.

i like this operation endorsement idea a lot. in today's society, people are easily swayed by hearing about big name endorsements rather than platforms. let's work hard to get the people with large name recognition to come out and publically endorse our man!

Well theres Joe Rogan (even though he's not that big of a star). Theres also that Baywatch girl who was on the forums a while back.

Yep, that was my thought as well. The Lemmings will
be impressed and cheer if we can find a good candidate
for an endorsement.

And I didn't even thought that Chuck is in any
way someone special - guess I was wrong.

So who would be ideal for Ron Paul? What national
heroes do you have over there people would
connect with Ron, Liberty and Freedom?

Who comes to your mind - and probably is a
republican voter as well?

Oliver
12-17-2007, 07:54 PM
The good thing about that is that once we get
someone respected, we surely may be able to
convince others as well who support Ron but
didn't endorse him yet.

Oliver
12-17-2007, 08:25 PM

would be a perfect celebrity partner for Ron?

Rather than a person, what about a publication...much like the National Observer came out for Romney, I was thinking today that it would be awesome if the magazine, The Economist would come out for Paul, although I dont know much about it other than its a foreign based publication and they seem to stand for similar economic policy that Ron Paul believes in. No idea how they fit into the whole main stream media political game though.

Oh really? I heard the Name Lieberman and McCain
a trillion times today - I probably wont forget this
for the rest of my life.

If we find someone who's something like a national
hero endorsing Ron Paul, it would be a good start
to get Ron's name out.

Same goes to actually buy airtime - instead waiting
for them to knock at the door.

On the other Hand, let's see how tomorrows day
will be with all the Media appearances. Even if
it wont be all over the media anyway.

Would the Media report about it? - I doubt it from
what I learned so far about the Media in the US.
It would be something completely different if
someone like Jay Leno or Bruce Willis would do it.

Problem is to find the right persons - and how to
get in contact with them...

The media might not report it, but I just read that they have a circulation of over 1.2M, and 80% of that is in the US to some very wealthy and powerful people. I think it could be very powerful to have a weekly publication that speaks to these people put in good words about Ron Paul and his sound economic policy.

Sounds pretty positive - let's keep this in mind.
If enough people are for endorsements, we have to
set up an appealing letter for the people we like
to contact. But you may find out the CEO's name
and contact data in the meantime?

And oh, what a commercial it would be is Paul came out against the others by saying exactly this in a commercial preceded by 5-10 personal endorsements like the end of the Iowa TV Special.

We need to hit people in the heart, not their sense of desire to see celebrities. Celebrity endorsements would be nice also, but only mixed in with those of everyday people when it comes to using it in a commercial.

I think most celebrity endorsements are worthless to our sort of campaign. However, imagine if we had the endorsement of Nancy Reagan. Just think of how amazing it would be if she comes out and says that Ron Paul is the closest to Reagan of all of the candidates. It would send shockwaves throughout the entire Republican base.

We should try to get her endorsement. Can anybody think of a way we can work to achieve this?

I think the biggest ones:

Clint Eastwood-he was Mayor for a brief stint and leans Libertarian.
The next logical one: Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I like Bruce Springsteen, but I don't know his political leanings aside from being anti-Bush.

Dennis Leary
Trey Parker (of Southpark)
Kurt Russell
Tom Selleck
Dave Barry
P.J. O'Rourke
Dwight Yoakam
