1. There has been too much inconsistency in the grassroots message. Emphasizing the constitution doesn't win enough votes and neither does educating (we don't have enough time or resources). Our message is Ron Paul's message, not what you think it would be/might be. Talking about the points that Ron Paul outlines on his webpage (under Issues) is the only way we can win Dr. Paul the nomination. Stick to those points and not our own. Please tell and educate your local members. Emphasize the issues that are important to the PRIMARY VOTERS in your region. Find those out by asking NON-RON PAUL supporters what issues matter to them and focus on those issues. For example, in New Hampshire, its Taxes, Health Care, Immigration, Property Rights, Immigration, and for some, time to end the Iraq War. In Iowa its Immigration and NAFTA, Taxes, 2nd amendment, abortion, ect.
Tell people that Ron Paul is a good Christian Doctor also.
2. DON'T write letters to press (they are now reluctant to do stories about Paul as Paulites fill their inboxes). Instead, write LETTERS TO THE EDITORS of your local papers. These are read by super-voters often. Start with "I'm a lifelong Republican, and Ron Paul is the man to carry the Republican Torch because..."
3. Paul needs to do well in the early primary states - help out there (particularly New Hampshire and Iowa) if you are competent at selling Ron Paul's message and ONLY Ron's Message.
