The Problem to the Solution & Strategic PersuasionSubmitted by StephenForFreedom on Mon, 10/24/2011 - 17:36
Are we are presenting a solution before they realize there is a problem?
Preparing people for Ron Paul & What we can learn from how I became a supporter:
As soon as I heard of Ron Paul back in 2007, I jumped on board immediately and here’s why: I already had years’ worth or awareness and frustration with the direction the nation was headed and why it is unsustainable. I already understood the Federal Reserve as a private corporation; I was already stressed about the federal government overstepping its boundaries; I already appreciated the positive power of Free Markets. So when someone first told me there was a candidate who wanted to fix all of that, I was ecstatic!
But the majority of voters do not have that background. They don’t know. They don’t care. They don’t want Ron Paul because they don’t understand the issues. They don’t want him to fix things because they don’t realize what’s broken.
We would do well to share with people videos and articles that teach the issues, laying a foundation of political awareness. If we share with people more videos explaining the Fed, inflation, taxation, debt, restrictions on free markets, our loss of liberties, etc. they will realize Ron Paul is the only reasonable option.
Here are a few links I’m thinking of. Please share some suggestions in the comments.
