Ron Paul Online Rally Update
There's a few things I thought I'd pass on today.
1) New Grass Roots Mailing List.
First and foremost, I'd like to tell you about a new mailing list I have
created, and that anyone can join:
This is a low volume, moderated list intended to disseminate important announcements about various projects to *anyone* interested in grassroots efforts and "action on the ground" -- especially Meetup group leaders.
Meetup.com has proven itself ineffective for distributing important
announcements to the 600+ meetup groups. Indeed Meetup.com actively prohibits any member from contacting more than 25 groups in one day, and these must be done individually. It is hoped that leaders or members from each of those groups will join this list and then pass the information on to the list for each respective group, if relevant.
It is vital that we improve our communications channels if we hope to organize effectively in support of Dr. Paul.
Announcements to this list will be approved by the moderators in a timely fashion. If you would like to become a moderator, please first join the list and then contact me (danda) and introduce yourself, your reasons, and your availability.
2) Official Online Rally Blog.
That's right, the Ron Paul Online Rally now has its very own Blog.
Take a look now to read a brief re-cap of the Ames Tribune Ad story.
Mostly this blog will be used for announcements about the rally itself, but if any of you (the rally participants) have something important to say, let me know, and we can probably get it posted. Don't forget about the Grass Roots Announce list though!
3) View Incoming Photos, Report Inappropriate Content
Now you can check out new photos as they arrive. The latest 30 photos are displayed on the page.
There is also a facility to report inappropriate content. This helps us keep the rally mosaic free of photos and comments that are abusive or in bad taste.
4) Military Photos.
Wouldn't it be cool to create a new mosaic image out of images of our troops that support Ron Paul? Wouldn't that make a great Ad?
Members of the military donated more to Ron Paul in Q2 than to any other candidate, so there must be plenty who support him.
The photo upload form can now track if a person is (or has been) in the military, and which branch. This also gets displayed on the mosaic itself.
And we are asking troops to upload pictures of themselves IN UNIFORM. If you know any Ron Paul supporters that are serving, or that have served in the past, please let them know.
We're rallying behind Ron Paul. Stand with us at:
