Hear ye! Hear ye!

May I PLEASE have your attention!

Starting tomorrow, our grassroots movement is going to be inundated by people curious about Ron Paul, this guy they never looked at before who did better than he was supposed to in Iowa.

ARE WE READY FOR THEM!!!???

I respectfully say, no!

We, Ron Paul supporters, need to ramp up a special CELEBRATION...

Thank you to Iowa and Iowans for your support!


Thank you volunteers and organizers for all your hard work!


Thank you Ron Paul, for your message of HOPE!


WELCOME to all the new people joining the Revolution!


RIGHT NOW, RON PAUL SUPPORTERS EVERYWHERE ARE THROWING A PARTY TO CELEBRATE THIS HISTORIC EVENT AND RAISE THE MONEY DR. PAUL NEEDS TO BLITZ 20 STATES AND WIN ON SUPER TUESDAY!!!

Join us NOW!

...

Do you hear it, ladies and gentlemen??? This is the kind of message we need to greet these new people with.

If we come out of Iowa with nothing to show new people but a disorganized rabble of competing fundraisers, we will lose a tremendous opportunity to lock in their support for Ron Paul and raise money the campaign so desperately needs!

We can call it, "Welcome Home Iowa!"

We'll quote their State Motto:

"Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain."

Sounds like our kind of folks, right!?

We'll set a "modest" goal of, say $4 million dollars to be raised between 12:00 AM Friday morning, and 11:59pm Sunday night!

That's 3 whole days, right when interest will be highest. A conservative goal just begging to be exceeded. No pushing to break our own records!

Getting new people to buy-in to the excitement, literally, right away!

Then we do it again, after New Hampshire...

Then we'll hit it with Benjamin Franklin's birthday...

And when we've raised the $23 million for the campaign, we'll raise another $5 million for grassroots projects in all 20 states, for the blimp, and whatever else our imaginations can dream up between now and then...

This movement is just beginning to feel its own power and become self-aware. Can we please focus ourselves on something good, catchy, and wholesome, in time to catch the wave that's coming ashore when they announce the vote tomorrow night?

I've registered these domain names, in case anybody decides to run with this concept:

welcomehomeiowa.org / .net / .info / .us

I also have:

ronpaulsupertuesday.com / .net / .org / .info

Can you think of something good to do with that one? :D

I have an idea. Look in this thread (http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?t=70529)...

Please, folks, we need people with web skills and hosting resources to make this happen, neither of which I possess. If you think it's a good idea, please help me gather the support needed to make it real.

The clock is counting down...

For Liberty!

ugh no we are not ready. I really thought you had an excellent idea too.

to be honest though I really wish the campaign would pick this up. While I call them incompetent on a daily basis, they would do a better job at it than us.

Thanks folks. I don't know what to do other than to keep bumping this idea in front of people until they start wondering why we're not doing it.

I don't have the mettle to make it happen myself. Somebody needs to pick it up who can create a web page, and a few of the big hitters who have some 'cred' with the grassroots have to get behind it.

So, feel free to join me in the drumming, please.

For Liberty!
