We have nearly maxed what we can do on the net. Digg is a wash anymore, and trying to convert anti-paul bloggers is just bumping their stats. Convincing your family and coworkers to vote for Paul is great, but thats just 1 degree of separation.

We have to create Paul zealots. People like us who will create more Paul zealots and make this all viral on a personal level. Thats the only way we can spread this far enough to reacha critaical mass. Paul supporters aren't going to be last minute suppporters, it's a complex platform and we have to undrestand that it takes a lot more education to turn folks. The good news is that Paul zealots won't flip flop. We can make this happen, but it's going to be harder than we thought.

NH PLAN

Put some relationships on the line. Stress to close apathetic friends/family how much this means to you (Its not like you're lying you're here right). All your asking is for one day of their time.

How many times have they dragged you to bad films and such. They owe you.

(If they agree to do it for you make sure they are registered and make sure you drag them the to the polling place when the time comes)

If every NH Ron Paul supporter brought 3 people into the primary who were never going to vote for anyone in the first place, we QUADRUPLE OUR EXPECTED TURNOUT!

Lets get this viral. You and the extra 3. You and the extra 3. You and the extra 3. You and the extra 3. You and the extra 3.....

Note:I'm not saying to to try and convert your 100% neocon father or your 100% liberal activist sister. Everyone has family members or friends that are apathetic and might do this one time only thing because you show them how important this is to you.

Bring the waterworks if you have to.
Promise them a huge party or something, we can do this!

Make viral. Repost. Repost. Repost.

Agreed. We organized on the internet, but this has to be won on the streets, in our workplaces, in our churches, and in our communities.

Get out there everyone!

I can't seem to convince my college age step son, he's so ashamed of supporting bush in 2004 that he's hard core kucinich now. But my wife and I talking about RP has turned several of his college friends who have donated to RP now. I will work on my family, they have to not just vote RP but believe strongly enough to turn their coworkers and friends,

PEOPLE.

RON PAUL an unknown congressmen from Texas in 3 months was able to gather 10% of the vote in the first in the nation caucus... The logical reasoning suggests that at the very LEAST 10% - 20% of republicans in the country are voting for a clear change in the GOP establishment. The question we have today is how many Ron Paul supporters will cast a ballot for a return to the original Republican party and denouce the neo-conservatives.

Every vote cast by Republican primary voters through super tuesday is a preverbial registration of a lost republican if RON PAUL does not get the nomination...

can the Republican party really aford to lose 15-25 million voters?


RON PAUL is a clear republican ... "Bring the party back to it's roots"


read the wiki article on the party and ask yourself who best represents these issues. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republican_Party_(United_States)


National defense and security
The Republican Party has always advocated a strong national defense; however, up until recently they tended to disapprove of interventionist foreign policy actions. Republicans opposed Woodrow Wilson's intervention in World War I and his subsequent attempt to create the League of Nations. Many Republicans opposed the creation of NATO. Even in the 1990s, although George H.W. Bush orchestrated the Gulf War, Republicans opposed the intervention of the United States in Somalia and the Balkans. However, in 2000, George W. Bush ran on a platform that opposed these types of involvement in foreign conflicts.

Today, there has been unilateralism on issues of national security, believing in the ability and right of the United States to act without external or international support in its own self-interest. In general, Republican defense and international thinking is heavily influenced by the theories of neorealism and realism, characterizing the conflicts between nations as great struggles between faceless forces of international structure, as opposed to the result of individual leaders, their ideas, and their actions. The realist school's influence shows in Reagan's Evil Empire stance on the Soviet Union and George W. Bush's Axis of Evil.


Economic policies
Republicans emphasize the role of corporate and personal decision making in fostering economic prosperity. They favor free-market policies supporting business, economic liberalism, more economic freedom, and limited regulation. A leading economic theory advocated by modern Republicans is supply-side economics. Some fiscal policies influenced by this theory were popularly known as "Reaganomics," a term popularized during the Presidential administrations of Ronald Reagan. This theory holds that reduced income tax rates increase GDP growth and thereby generate the same or more revenue for the government from the smaller tax on the extra growth. This belief is reflected, in part, by the party's long-term advocacy of tax cuts, a major Republican theme since the 1920s. Republicans believe that a series of income tax cuts since 2001 have bolstered the economy.[9] Many Republicans consider the income tax system to be inherently inefficient and oppose graduated tax rates, which they believe are unfairly targeted at those who create jobs and wealth. They believe private spending is usually more efficient than government spending.




There are still clear choices in this election...


2nd amendment
abortion
decreasing federal spending
immigration
less taxation


these are the issue we need to be ephasizing... no other GOP candidate has the consistency on these topics... leave out the more "controversial" subjects... we need the moderate vote

a winning strategy is to propel Ron Paul into the center because the MSM is making him out to be an extremist. The reality is that Ron Paul actually has practical solutions to the biggest problems this country faces.

We need to spread the message that this Iowa result confirmed Ron Paul's legitimacy as a frontrunner. Many people have written RP off as not having a chance. We need these people to give him a 2nd look.
