The Daily Paul: THE MOUSE THAT ROARED!!Submitted by Jefferson2 on Thu, 02/11/2010 - 10:14
When I think of the DP, I think of that tiny fish, that swims in a school, to appear like a much larger fish, to fend off predators. I'm sorry I don't know the name.
We may not have millions of members, or millions of dollars in special interest money, but when we focus and work together, there is no telling what can be accomplished. We may be small, but WE CAN BE MIGHTY!!!
A prime example of this was the PPP (Public Policy Poll), that a member ("newt") brought forward about a week ago.
This great member ("newt")let us know about the PPP, and how it was leaning in favor of being conducted in another state.
Right away DP members got to work, and started voting in this poll, and swayed the results in favor of Texas.
NOW, look at the BOOST it has given the Medina campaign. I FIRMLY believe that our actions here at the DP, were responsible for the PPP being conducted in Texas, and all the news coverage coming from those results.
Now, she is raising eyebrows nationally, and being discussed on the major networks, all because of this poll, and the efforts that started here on the DP.
This all came from one idea from ONE member here, and the efforts of other members here.
We cannot rest until this campaign is over. We must run like we are 20 points behind, not 3 points ahead.
I know we have the odds stacked against us, but I am not going to let that deter me, and I hope it doesn't deter you. If a win is achievable, it would pave the way for Liberty candidates across the nation.
I sometimes get frustrated with the lack of action on some people's part, and for that I am sorry. I am equally guilty of inaction sometimes.
I just want to empower you with this news of the PPP, and the impact we can make, when we work together on something.
Please don't just say that "If she wins, I'll be moving to Texas." You can HELP HER WIN, by using the above small fish strategy. Wouldn't a move to Texas be that much more satisfying, knowing that you played a part in getting her elected?
Voting in online polls is easy, and it's great, as many voters have a herd mentality, and the look of a larger presence/fish, than we really are, can influence their decision.
Many voters are lazy, and once they see that the herd is going for a particular candidate, they just go with whatever they perceive the herd is doing.
I am asking everyone who can, to realize what we did with the PPP (poll), and let that jump start your vigorous heart into taking action, by making a small sacrifice each day.
That sacrifice could be finding a current article about her, and joining up, so that you can make influential comments in her favor.
It could be sitting on hold and waiting to make a comment on national radio, about the absolute Cinderella story that is taking place here in Texas.
It could be a lot of things that don't require money. All it takes is a bit of sacrifice, and a small amount of time.
I have donated money to other candidates, in other states. And I am also willing to make whatever time, and effort sacrifice I need to, to help their campaigns.
I am asking that you please do the same, for Debra Medina.
You can start by keeping an eye on her Facebook page. You don't even have to sign up for Facebook, to be able to view info.
I have to say, her Facebook page, has about 17,000 members, and it is truly an inspiration for activism.
Here is her Facebook link.
You can also go to this thread, and find a way where you think you can make a difference. Share it with others. Build from there.
Time is of the absolute essence here, and we must continue to build the momentum, and school together, because the sharks are going to come. You can bet on that. Thank you for reading.
How you can help MEDINA WIN!!!
