Major bone to pick...Submitted by leftrightlies on Mon, 05/16/2011 - 15:33
This is the last chance... the last chance for a person to represent us as president who is philosophically and fundamentally the right person.
The people who are slowly waking up and realizing the truth are in greater numbers now then they ever have been.
I worked my butt off spreading the word in 07-08. Despite the low votes for RP, his visibility during the election catapulted the support we have now...
Now to my bone picking for RP... Can you hire some legitimate campaign staffers, advisors, and people that can actually help you win the R nomination?
Every time you go on TV, neocons corner you into talking about something stupid like legalizing drugs, not helping Mississippi flood victims, and not killing OBL. They dangle the bait, and you bite. When they ask you a direct question, you start talking about an off-topic history lesson, then before you know it, your time is up, commercial break. DON'T YOU KNOW THIS HURTS YOU??? You spend your precious airtime defending garbage.
The reason people initially got behind you is because of the big picture of libertarian ideology! The FED is screwing us, the free market works, and I can make better decisions regarding my personal life and habits than you can. I make my bed and I’ll lay in it.
In the latest Fox video, when he asked if FEMA should help the flood victims, you said “Why should the taxpayer pay for them.” Well guess what??? Americans like helping fellow Americans!!! Why can't you quickly say, "What happened there is horrible, but this catastrophe would not be near as bad if flood insurance was left only to private companies. If they won't insure you, it’s probably not a good idea to build a house there! Private insurance companies have to make good insurability decisions to remain solvent; government insures what is politically correct. It's proven that government insurance makes bad decisions; this is why the free market works. It prevents catastrophe and saves a ton of money."
Ron Paul, to win the game you must play the game. It doesn't mean you sacrifice your principals or lie, but at least know what resonates with voters.
Recognize when pundits bait you, and don't get sucked in. Focus on the PHILOSOPHY and we might be able to win the primary.
Again, dump the friends and family campaign staff and hire professionals who can at least give you ...and us.... a shot at liberty.
