The next 4 months are crucial. Are YOU doing everything you can?Submitted by FromJericho on Sun, 09/18/2011 - 11:54
September is winding down and that leaves us with about 4 months until primaries begin. Four months can seem like a very long time, but trust me, it'll fly by quickly and before you know it, the primaries will be here. We MUST be prepared. There is no time to waste. As you all know, we have a A LOT riding on this. So, let's look at the rundown of what's coming up:
o February 6 – Confirmed date of the Iowa caucuses
o February 14 – Expected date of New Hampshire primary
o February 18 – Confirmed date of the Nevada caucuses
o February 28 - Confirmed date of the South Carolina primary
* February 28 - Confirmed date of the Arizona primary, in violation of the Republican National Committee rules
* February 28 - Expected date of the Michigan primary, in violation of the Republican National Committee rules
* March 6–31, 2012: Primaries (and other contests) that provide for proportional allocation of delegates to the candidates, and all nonbinding caucuses;
* April 1, 2012 onward: All other contests.
So, the first four primaries are Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.
These will be our first large battlegrounds of the season. These four primaries will sway public opinion and have an impact on the outcome of the future primaries. We MUST make the largest IMPACT possible on these four primaries. So, what if you don't live in one of these four states, what can you do?.... Here's what you can do: Support the moneybombs, so we can make sure to have top notch advertising in all four states! Use the internet to make friends in those states, educate them and encourage them to vote for Ron Paul! Make videos supporting the Ron Paul movements in each of these states, we need to let our fellow Paul supporters know we've got their backs! Go to these states and help campaign, (if you've got the time & money, and you like to travel, these states could use your help). Honestly, there must be thousands of ways YOU can help Dr. Paul win these key primary states, so, PLEASE share your ideas with the rest of us here on the DP. Ideas tend to grow when you share them!
Anyway, let's not wait till the last minute. Procrastination is fine when you're working on term papers for college or high school, but it just won't fly in a political campaign. We have to get focused and energized! Just think about this: Every time you think to yourself, "Well, I was gonna give to the moneybomb, but someone else will probably give enough to where it won't matter if I donated or not" and "Well, I was going to go to the rally, but there will be plenty of people there, so it doesn't really matter if I go" and "Well, I could talk to some of my friends about Dr. Paul, but I'm sure someone else will talk to them, so I probably don't need to", Remember, there might not always be a "someone else". What if we all depended on "someone else"? Where would our campaign be right now?.... YOU must make an effort on your own! It is our campaign's sense of individualism that makes us so strong... and we must build it up to become even STRONGER! So, get out there, let's see if we can wake up FOUR states in FOUR months...grassroots style! Get out there and make it happen! RON PAUL 2012! PEACE is counting on YOU!!!
UPDATE: SOUTH CAROLINA!!! You may have less time than we expected due to Arizona's funny business. It's looking like the SC primary will be moved to a sooner date, but we still don't know WHEN that will be (SC GOP is apparently concerned about missing football season).
