"We can get around the establishment. We can save a lot of money if you participate in this." - Ron Paul

"Besides contributing financially, there’s literally NOTHING you can do to help my campaign more.

It was our Phone From Home program that helped lead to my historic finish in the Iowa Straw Poll.

That’s why I’m personally asking you to help me achieve VICTORY in key early primary and caucus states by signing up to Phone From Home."

- Dr. Ron Paul

At my local GOP meeting last night Romney was asking for help

With calling people. Nobody really seemed interested. But it made me wonder if they're trying to copy Ron Paul or it was something they were already doing on their own.

It sounded like they were just getting set up.

thanks for the update!

now if the other 300 plus DP lers would go to their GOP meetings.. we would own a large percentage of the grassroot key positions.

cringe...not a phone

cringe...not a phone person...still uses 2 dixie cups and a string....however if Romney comes anywhere near my state I'll attend one of his rallies dressed up like a red coat. :D

Just want to point out that you're not selling anything.

All you're doing is reading a script and asking poll questions. Sign up and you will see it's probably nothing like what you assume.

Start Today

I just started today. It's easy and invigorating. I encourage everyone to give it a try. It's easy.

Amen! "This is how we win"

Yes yes yes! Glad to see this is being promoted more on DP.

I wanted to post last night during/ after the debate: those of you who are p.o.'d about the Good Doctor getting shafted there (and in the MSM in general), this is the single best opportunity to TURN YOUR ENERGY INTO ACTION!

Phone for RP, baby! The campaign has a sweet system, it's self-explanatory, easy, and fun! I've only done 2 days, and I'm hooked.

And please, no excuses like "I'm too shy" or "I don't have speaking skills." Overcome your shyness, pick up the phone, and you'll learn as you go. This is something all of us can do, and we can tell our grandchildren that we were there, "in the trenches," for RP in 2011, quietly helping to engineer the shocking upset win in IA...(and you know what happens from there!)

Let's do this, people: THIS IS HOW WE WIN.

For liberty,

44 calls, 4 completed

44 calls, 4 completed surveys. 3 Mitt Romney supporters and one Ron Paul supporter. I was pleasantly surprised that almost everyone was generally well mannered. Only had two "NOT INTERESTED!" before slamming the phone down.

I also

call Iowa with this program http://rp2012.org/. It's just as easy as the one mentioned above, but obviously they call Iowa instead of New Hampshire.

Calling and talking to neighbors is, next to tv and print advertisements, the best thing anyone could do to help win the elections.

I am in!

I am going to start making calls, maybe an hour or two a day until the primaries. Everybody should do this! I know no one wants to feel defeat again! This is it, get out there and fight it out in the trenches! Let's make this happen!

Not all have the ability of speech...

Many who do not have the gift of speech due to some physical impediment, they would gladly make a contribution to the campaign in this way, by phone banking, if they could.

I will be more than happy to make some calls from home this week for the good doctor, and consider it a fine opportunity to celebrate the gift of speech God has endowed the majority of us with.

I wish I could

There are always children crying or playing in the background here, so this isn't an option for me...However, recent events have pulled me from "silent supporter" status to cash donor and on-line participant...I don't have a lot of time or money, we have 5 kids and I'm a stay at home mom, but I have started doing everything I can to support Ron Paul....which is including many discussions with all of my friends and relatives....I'm still trying to figure out how I can help more....but this is my start...

If you can do this, it is SO EASY to follow those scripts....I've worked phone banks, it's easy work.....

Signed up and ready to go!

Signed up and ready to go! This needs to be spread in EVERY meetup group. Even if we get a few thousand people to do this...WOW!

We need a phone for Ron Paul BOMB!

Best way for us poor folk to help out :)

the code did not work

It did not work I tried getting a second e-mail and it was the same number and did not work either. I will try from the ron paul 2012 web site.

Signed up!

Asks me to call NH though. I want to call Iowa! (-:

Thanks to all who are participating

It really helps us out here in Iowa if these voters are identified as supporting RP. We can access these lists and get the necessary info out to those supporters so they can get to the caucus and get any questions answered as well. We need around 40,000 votes to win this thing and it's very achievable!

And what about becoming a delegate

Doc?

I am wondering why he does not speak of all of us doing thaat.

Ron Paul is My President

The delegate process is where

The delegate process is where I'm focusing my energy. I'm going to do some phone banking to spread the load. However, I am doing quite a bit in my state to find RP supporters and get them to their caucus. Like Candide said. "Cela est bien dit, répondit Candide, mais il faut cultiver notre jardin."

Those that really want to become delegates

Have learned how to do it and are doing it.

Please don't tell me you're not an active member of Campaign for Liberty?

Originally hesitant...

I've done calling a few years ago for another candidate and wanted to avoid doing the same preferring to do sign bombs, donating, and door to door if necessary.

But here I am set to take part in a Ron Paul Iowa Call party in about a week simply because after doing most of the other things, this really is the best way to help RP break through.

Just be mindful of what time and day you're calling. People hate being disturbed during dinner and on Sundays. Be mindful of time differences, too to avoid a "slog" of unhappy call recipients.

SERIOUSLY.... a phone call? SOME OF YOU ARE AFRAID OF MAKING A

PHONE CALL?? For Freedom? For Liberty?

Our FOREFATHERS WOULD HAVE WISHED FREEDOM WAS SO EASY...

Instead they had to starve, freeze, and fight, ill equipped against the most powerful army of the PLANET just to be free!

And based on the comments below.. people are not wanting to pick up a phone to make a few calls for freedom, and for Dr. Paul... WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE??? (by you people, I am collectively terming that towards the ones who are standing on the sidelines.. full of fear and trepidation of picking up a phone)

If your really in this for freedom, for a Dr Paul Presidency, block out 20-30 min a day. You might make 10-20 calls a day.. for the next 45 days .
That would be 450-900 calls you , 1 person would make.
Now if just 1000 committed RP activists did the same.... 450,000 - 900,000 potential voters in Iowa, etc that would get contacted!!

HOW CAN WE NOT WIN BY JUST DOING THIS ONE THING?? RON PAUL WOULD TAKE IOWA, AND THEN MOST PEOPLE WOULD WAKE UP TO HIM...(especially the ones on the fence) IT WOULD UNLEASH A TIDAL WAVE OF SUPPORT NATIONWIDE!!

EVEN ALL THE INTERNATIONAL PEOPLE COULD ACTUALLY PARTICIPATE IN THIS. (just use SKYPE, it will cost next to nothing to make calls)

reply to Jdayh's post

YEAH! CUZ IF WE DONT WIN WE ARE GONNA LOOK AT YOU IN DISMAY, SHAKING OUR HEADS SLOWLY FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, THINKING...."CHEW SON'S OF BEECHES...". I FOR ONE HAVE GOTTEN PERMISSION FROM MY LIBERTY MINDED BOSS (how lucky am i, right) TO MAKE 50 CALLS A DAY FROM WORK!!! THEN IMA GO HOME AND BLOW SOME PHONES OFF THE RECEIVER! DING DONG! LIBERTY CALLING!! PLEASE DO WHAT YOU CAN.

mitchell s. roy

you're right

good motivational post.

I'll bet you have no success with shy people.

Half the people in the world are more introverted than extroverted.

Save your shame for those that deserve it. Not those who find quiet ways to work for freedom.

Free includes debt-free!

I'm an introvert

I tend to be reserved. Cold calling is not something I would choose to do, HOWEVER, for Ron Paul I over came this stupid shyness and signed up to phone from home. Yes, I was nervous, yes I thought I sounded stupid reading from the script when someone actually picked up the phone (gasp!). But I endured. By the time I made 10 phone calls, which only 3 actually picked up, I was getting better at not sounding so scripted and warming up to how the darn thing worked.

I decided I HAD to do this. Our future is at stake. I want to have the freedom Ron Paul tells us we can have again. I don't want to sit back on primary day and beat myself up if he doesn't win, saying to myself, I should've called... I should've done this, I should've done that... Damn this shyness... He could've of won if I had done it.

Ok, I know there are terminally shy people and they will not, no way participate in phone from home. Ok, they can do other things, that's ok with me. But I was able to overcome it to phone from home. My desire to be free overcomes my shyness.

For the lady with 5 kids... isn't there someone around, a teenager who would take over the kids for at least an hour so you could phone from home? At least once a week? A neighbor, friend, someone?

Sit the kids down and tell them this is extremely important, and mom has to have one hour of quiet to do this extremely important job. Tell them which day, what time. Stick to it. They are not to bother you for that time, unless the house is on fire, or someone is bleeding to death. Give them a project to do while you call.

In the end the big difference between introvert and extrovert is

In the end the big difference between introvert and extrovert is simple.

Extroverts are energized by social interactions and introverts are drained by them.

It's not that extroverts aren't embarrassed or self conscious, but their gain offsets those negatives.

But you can see introverts energized by sharing ideas, as in the case of Dr. Paul. He keeps going and going and going...

Thanks for sharing your success!

Free includes debt-free!

Phone from home

Would you be able to tell me where you got a list to call from? I would be able to do that. Just don't know where to get a list from. I commented on a couple posts willing to go to Iowa to help canvas. Rather new at this was on sideline during 08 other than donating cash.

Just click the first link in the topic and sign up.

You don't need a list, because everything is automated.

I can tell you don't have 5

I can tell you don't have 5 kids or know what a sitter costs, that's okay :)....see, my husband gives me 1 hour a week to go for a cup of coffee and I gave up my coffee for a walk so I could give that money to Ron Paul...soon I'll get a t-shirt to wear during my walk....and I really don't have any other help....I am no longer a silent supporter and am working on bringing my friends and family on board....
