Lets face it, the campaign didn't put much effort into Iowa. Ron Paul wasn't going to win Iowa simply because Iowa isn't mainstream - its bible thumping evangelical heartland. This was a battle between Huckabee and Romney. The campaign knew this and spent frugally - they weren't about to make the same mistake and Brownback did at the straw poll and waste away your fund raising.

Pulling 10% in Iowa means we should expect higher numbers across the nation since Iowa is the most hostile to his message.

Reagan or Clinton didn't win Iowa and still became President. We have hope ahead with the next states of New Hampshire, Michigan, Nevada, and South Carolina, which are places we can win.

Stay strong and spread the message!

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.
