Potentially Untapped Voters

I was thinking today (I know, amazing right:) we need to get the word out to our senior citizens. It seems this is the demographic that RP is doing the worst with.

My proposal is that we start a Seniorbomb! If you have a parent or a loved one that lives in a retirement community/home or nursing facility, take time to drop in and educate these wonderful people about the candidates.

I can imagine their will be some lively debates and the seniors would love the visitors. These guys and gals are probably being spoon fed lies by the MSM and can't do the research to find out what's really happening.

Please let me know what you guys think. This would be a wonderful way to gather votes quickly, maybe even firing up whole facilities. You could even arrange to be a buddy to go with them to the polls.

Good idea -- defense is the issue

I find "defense" is the issue seniors (who are GOP primary voters) have a problem with. I wouldn't worry about Medicare and Soc Sec until the general election.

We need a solid hard copy outreach piece that emphasizes his military service, commitment to national defense, concern about stretching out military too thin due to our over commitments, and the Obama/Clinton role in our recent wars (rather than emphasizing the Bush role). This should not be an outreach piece to the left, but a culturally conservative piece. This may already exist.

And we should use this piece as a an intro to personal interactions with seniors, rather than relying on the internet. As with other demographics, we already won the internet primary, to advance further we need to press the flesh.

someone here had published some newspapers

for IA, SC, etc. It was meant for older folks who read newspapers only...this could help us reaching more people.

Isn't it weird

That Ron Paul is as senior as they get and he does the worst with his peers?

I Agree

I often work with seniors. I'm on it!

Good point

Ron Paul is the only one with a plan to save Medicare and social security. Every other candidate ignores it and will let these two programs go bankrupt.

It might just work quite

It might just work quite nicely. This could help the seniors, Dr. Paul's campaign and the future of this nation all at once 8-}
