non-Collective message to the Ron Paul campaign from the DailyPaul.com community.

This thread is to serve as a central point where we can collectively compose a letter to the campaign pointing out areas in which we think Ron Paul can improve his appearance and message. I will leave it to another member to compose the actual letter, but I encourage all DailyPaul readers to post a suggestion/critique below that should be addressed. Some notable suggestions so far have been:

1. Address the "ummmms" and "ahhhs" between words, and develop a more consistent speaking rhythm.

2. Be mindful of fidgeting and awkward hand movements.

3. Better explain cause & effect of the issues. Voters not yet supporting Ron Paul don't understand the details as to why he is correct in his positions. Relate, in concrete details, how it effects them (as though his is educating them). Speak to the audience, not the commentators and interviewers.

Any other thoughts?

Ron Paul will be more comfortable when he wins...

the Iowa caucuses. Dr. Paul delivered babies; he has "courage under fire". Part of the wavering is due to his age, but his great wisdom shines through. I'm just glad he is wearing better suits.

It's okay to have a discussion about tactics

In my opinion, some on here are too defensive about this. Ron Paul can handle advice and constructive criticism. It might improve the campaign so we should express these ideas, stop shouting down people who seem to genuinely want to help out. Ideas should be judged on merits instead of assuming anyone who has a suggestion is a troll.

Let Ron Paul be Ron Paul

He's been winning elections for a long time. I do, however, agree that he needs to TEACH his audience better. Assume they have no knowledge of the economic issues he is putting forward. TEACH THE FUNDAMENTALS as often as he can.
Easy for us to say. We are not under the lights, in front of the cameras and hostile moderators.

Good idea

but you're off to a bad start. Ron Paul knows he needs to work on his delivery, he's very open about it. This isn't something he needs to be told by his supporters.

'Collective'

is a very, bad word.

Collective isn't a bad thing

Collective isn't a bad thing unless people are forced to participate.

haha! you got me on that

haha! you got me on that one! :) Though, he does support unions and free association!

lol, you changed the title...

few things i'd love to see

have a staffer set up a tripod and record a video at every event, and upload it as soon as possible.

shouldn't be too hard, right? designate someone if you have to.

2 a fitted suit - i still am up for buying him one at jimmy au's in beverly hills next time he's in town.

My thought are

this is disrespectful.

You want to make him into a manufactured "politician", something he is not?

He's gotten pretty far so far being himself.

I don't wish to tell him what

I don't wish to tell him what to think or say, by any means. Rather, I wish that he would better explain it. I've had a few Democrat friends watch some videos, and they weren't clear on why he says what he does. I've had to further explain his stance, and even give them books to read, before they had that moment of clarity. I'm certainly not wanting to manufacture anything, but I can completely see your point of view, and you might be right. If that's the case, I'm fine with continuing to follow up with conversations explaining his position. It's just unfortunate that there is not a Ron Paul supporter readily available to clear up any confusion or misunderstanding after a non-supporter hears him speak.

Perhaps this thread should die before it starts?
