UPDATED: If you could LEAD someone to RP or DP in ONE paragraph, how would you do it?Submitted by Jefferson2 on Wed, 04/27/2011 - 13:14
I believe it is time to sharpen the message, and go forth and multiply.
(RP supporters that is)
EDIT: Here I am writing about "sharpening the message", and my own message was not that sharp......8)
I know that Ron Paul, or the principles of Liberty cannot be "sold" to someone in one paragraph. For some people it takes a long period of study. I know that I am still learning myself.
My main purpose for this, was to be used as a guerrilla advertising tool to help LEAD frustrated, disenchanted potential voters here or somewhere else, where they could learn more about Ron Paul and the principles he has been writing about and discussing for decades.
Some people say "It can't be done". Well, "can't" never could. How many times have you read testimony about someone seeing someone else holding a sign on an overpass, Google'd Ron Paul, educated themselves, and became a recovering neocon etc.
This is basically the same idea, but for the internet. There are hundreds of thousands of "overpasses" on the information super highway, and Michael describes the Daily Paul as a "giant electronic billboard" on the side of that highway.
These "paragraphs" are like mini signs, that tap into voter frustration, and lead them to the billboard. We are leading horses to water, so to speak. Whether they drink or not, is up to them.
This project is intended to reach and lead the most amount of people, for the least amount of time, effort, and money. Something that many of us may be shorter on, this time around.
Since some people might be a little apprehensive to get on talk radio and get the message out (which I can understand), we must dominate the comment sections on other discussion forums, articles, youtubes, etc.
Youtube was the main area of focus for this project, as it has as much, if not more viewers than regular television.
PLUS, we are able to find our target audiences, by knowing what kind of content they are watching, and being able to advertise to them for FREE.
I have already cut and pasted some of these on youtube, and have gotten responses to them, so I know it has potential.
This thread could be a resource for people to be able to create copy, and others to paste the persuasive commentary around the internet.
It is not about taking just ONE chosen paragraph, and pasting it all over the internet, but using a a variety of excellent ones to share with each other, and put out there. Think of this thread as a "mini sign" factory.
Whoever writes most persuasive paragraph (500 characters or less) describing the coming disaster, and how or why Ron Paul is the solution, while leading them to the DP, RonPaul2012.com, or somewhere else will win a limited issue "Ron Paul 2012" T-Shirt, and a .999 Silver American Eagle.
The contest will be open until Thursday May 12th for entries, and THEN vote for your favorites.
Here is a rough example:

Tired of the same old broken promises every 4 years? Tired of watching your hard earned money go to taxes that get spent on endless wars, occupation, and reckless, unresponsive Government? This election YOU will have a chance to make history, and vote for the ONE man that can TRULY make a difference. If we don't get involved, and take our Govt. back, then we will look like Egypt in the next couple of years. Please...Join the discussion and the fight to RESTORE AMERICA NOW at the DailypaulDOTcom
