I just got this from our meetup in California

Many of us had been signed up for the rp2012.org one.

"Hi All:

Per YAL and the Ron Paul 2012 campaign, if you want to phone bank in Iowa towards getting more people in Iowa to vote for Ron Paul in the Ames Straw poll on August 13, 2011, please specifically sign up on the official campaign website: Ronpaul2012.com and go to volunteer section, fill out the info and then wait for a campaign person to call you. Please do not do grass roots phone banking or freelancing. People in Iowa are getting mad they're getting too many phone calls. I just learned about this from the campaign people today.

So if you wish to phone bank, please go through the Ron Paul campaign website only. Thanks."

After reading this I am thinking for those of us who have been using the rp2012.org one, then to stick to Independents?

Make calls via the campaign ronpaul2012.com ? or rp2012.org???

I'm confused...where do I sign up? Does it make a difference?

I rather the campaign get all the info they need from these phone calls.

as was said

rp2012.org was built using Dennis' campaign setup to perform calls. This is a separate project from the campaign (and its website) with the same goal. Sign up at both.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

If you use Dennis's database

If you use Dennis's database then the campaign won't have the info! They'll eventually have to sift through two databases of 100Ks of names!

Aren't we helping the campaign more by sticking to their website/database?

Joη's picture

does the campaign have a call base set up yet?

at the time Dennis began this, I don't think so.

Generally I'm against duplicating info, so I share your concern. But this group wants to help, has set up a working site to do so with a very focused purpose compared to the campaign as a whole. I think it's perfectly fine to work with this group. Who knows, Dennis has connections. They may merge the databases in time.

Even more generally, nature repeats itself all the time, because variations are usually good.

(later: oops, Victoria said the same thing at the same time)

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

Well, provided that Dennis

Well, provided that Dennis later gives those records to the RP campaign its really not a big deal to merge those records together and eliminate dupes.

This sounds like a great effort because judging by last campaign in 08 in Iowa and some major snafu that happened with the RP database there, they could use the organizational help of the Dennis campaign which seemed to be really on top of these types of efforts.

I hope Dennis runs for some sort of office. He seems very electable, although in SF he has a severe hurdle.

Bump

I just made 25 calls this morning. Let's comb Iowa with a fine tooth brush and get out them Ron Paul supporters!! Yee haw!

!

I phonebanked for John Dennis while he was running here in California. I'm glad he's returning the favor by helping out Ron!

Just posted this for the Holland Michigan Ron Paul Meetup

I got word of this today, and have it posted for our meetup to work on! It is a great idea!!

Great idea

We need to push this NOW. According to http://www.iowaforronpaul.com/ames-straw-poll.php

The offer for Iowans to go for only $10 only lasts until July 4th so we need to do this now, since I see it harder for people to go without this deal.

Over 1,150 members now

Still going strong.

1,000?! H Yeah!

I've sent out 10's of thousands of messages everywhere i can think of over the past few days to promote this effort - hope it's helped! almost funny as hell that some have confused my attempt to mask my efforts from the folks at meetup.com (meetup has banned me before) as a military info gathering black project, considering I got kicked out of the military because of my support for Ron Paul...I hope they put as much effort into promoting Ron Paul as they put into investigating me!

Question About This Effort

Is this affiliated with the "official" campaign's efforts? I assisted in the Iowa efforts in 2007 and one of the problems we had was that there were multiple campaigns for RP hitting Iowa at the same time. It created some resentment in the voters, especially when they were getting called 5 or 6 times each...some even said that with the harassment, the last person they would vote for would be RP.

Not trying to undermine the effort...just trying to make you aware of the potential pitfalls and encourage you to think about the impacts.

You shouldn't be concerned.

We're connected with most of the grassroots so I don't foresee multiple grassroots efforts.

We are contacting Independents first. The campaign is just hitting its own primary Republican list from staffers and local people.

This is 100% grassroots. FEC regulates against coordination.

I'm sure we won't concern ourselves with the 'official' campaign overlapping grassroots efforts, just as the 'official' campaign should not be concerned that the grassroots might overlap its efforts.

You SEE?

THIS is what I love about the RP grassroots! Typical libertarians they don't wait for the "campaign" to tell them what to do.... they just DO and let any assistance from the campaign staff be an ENHANCEMENT to what they are already doing! Lots more experience and organizational structure already there this time around. This could be a BIG, BIG year!!

GO RON PAUL!
