Ron Paul will not win the nomination without media coverage. It just isn't going to happen. If you believe that Ron Paul is NEVER, EVER get media coverage, as you put it, then you are resigning yourself to failure. I would much rather work on getting him media coverage, because all that's really needed is to get beyond the tipping point, and he will get coverage.

Then we would coordinate with those in the state to divide responsibilities based on what they could do in-state that the others could not. I would allocate persons to various tasks. Eg maybe there is a small team in charge of bumper stickers with the aim of getting 5% of cars with a Ron Paul bumper sticker within that state (free exposure to large amounts of people). I would contact newspapers and see if they are willing to interview persons on their support for Ron Paul. 1 group might be in charge of posting e-mails/twitter accounts here of those giving biased coverage within that state so that they can be sent messages by thousands of persons on this forum. This would make a difference, I saw a reporter on TV saying that he got thousands of e-mails after removing a poll that Ron Paul was winning. 1 team would be assigned on how to identify and get Democrats and independents to switch party affiliation and vote for Ron Paul.

I think if anyone here is willing to step up to help coordinate the national efforts of all the thousands of persons here on this forum it would be appreciated. Maybe someone who was in charge of a state campaign that is over. jemuf, maybe you can take this role?
