    Who do you think you are talking to? What kind of philosophy do you think Ron Paul supporters follow?

    Do you know the history of this movement? Do you know the history of the last Ron Paul campaign? Do you know what people think of the last campaign? Do you know that people ask where the money went? Do you see what's going on with Campaign for Liberty? Did you read what Thomas Woods wrote?

    Or maybe I should sit down with you and explain......................... and as far as the phonebanking is concerned? It's ON.

    I don't see how phone banking will hurt, we are looking to talk to Ron Paul supporters.

    I'll tell you how it could hurt. The campaign may already have something like this in the works, so supporters not getting any direction on who's calling where and when could be a complete mess.

    Like I said, when this was tried last campaign it was a disaster. So many people were calling at all different times, calling in the same areas, not using any kind of formatted structure, getting into arguments with those that they called.....

    I haven't seen the site yet, but unless its very well organized and a set structure for the phone calls are in place, it could ruin what the campaign has in the works and actually hurt our chances in Ames.

    It resembles none of the characteristics of your concerns. It is a well organized and, I believe, an effective tool. The organizer[s] seem to have a good level of experience as well.
    Check out the site, its good stuff. I agree with you though, if it were loosely put together it would have potential to do harm.

    If the campaign wanted to be REALLY organized they could purchase/take over the site to pick up where we left off and already know who has been contacted ... right?

    People were really getting pissed off at all the calls in Rand's campaign, I remember that vividly. And if the campaign NEEDS certain info to target their message or to get volunteers for projects or whatever, and will have a specific script, they would need to do it all over. I really do think we could hurt things, or I would have signed up. I want to get out there and help.

    Why would they bother doing that when they have their own phone banking system?
