Ron Paul Door-to-Door campaigner Ipad app?Submitted by TheTranscendent on Mon, 05/16/2011 - 11:36
The Ron Paul Revolution is hugely fueled by the internet, I'm sure that can be generally agreed upon. It seems to me like the Revolution without the internet as a tool is severely weakened. This has caused problems getting real votes in the past, because door-to-door campaigning does not really mesh with the internet yet. I believe this can be changed though, and here is my idea how.
I believe it would be of great interest to the Ron Paul campaign to make a Ipad/Android Tablet application that can be downloaded by campaigners across the country. This would essentially allow the revolution to be completely brought to the doorstep of every American.
I would certainly love to help with the project, but my programming skills are limited so I cannot do the project on my own. So, anyone and everyone can feel free to contact me to help with this, or simply take the idea and run with it. I just want Ron Paul's supporters to have every tool possible in order to help him with the primary and ultimate the presidency.
Here are some of the features I think would be very helpful to the campaign:
-Tell you if a RP campaigner has already been to that house?
-Try and find, based on publicly available voter registration data which residences to target and which to skip (i.e. filter out houses who are registered democrats for the primary, but not the general election presuming he wins the primary)?
-The ability to easily add households to phone/e-mail/facebook lists instantly.
-Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page with links to RP opinions, voting records, video's, ect.
-Donation pages allowing for people to use many methods to donate to a number of sources.
-Current Ron Paul newsfeed sources. This would be for the campaigners mainly, but it would give them up to the minute news on Ron Paul, which may not be helpful for that day of campaigning but can help them stay informed and such.
-Instant voter registration form e-mailed (or ordered to be mailed, or whatever the state does as far as registration)
-Any other information that may be useful to the campaigners (local people up for election that share Ron Paul's views, election dates/polling locations, current tracking numbers (money, votes, whatver).
-A live chat with other using the app maybe? Allowing for everyone to feel connected, and questions can be answered instantly
