Ron Paul says it is the most important thing you can do to help him win:

The most important thing you can do to help me become the next President of the United States, you can do from the comfort of your own home.

Phone from home slacking.

What a wonderful new video & as often Ron made me think.
I've been slacking on the phone from home vanguard !
I spend to much time on dailypaul, RCP, googletrends, ronpaul2012, etc... & not enough time phoning from home !

So to help I did 2 things :

-phone.ronpaul2012.com is not my home page
&
-edited my computer screen (the edit is in red) :

I did some phone banking. But

I did some phone banking. But was surprised to learn it was just a poll. Why does the campaign think this is so important? What do they do with this information?

it's surprising if you haven't worked on campaigns

The reality is these are voter ID calls, the persuasion calls are made from local supporters in the early states.

Also,

funds raised from moneybombs are used more efficiently due to the reasons below. Think of it as maximizing the impact of the money we raise.

For NON-Ron Paul supporters

They also use the "issues most important to you" chosen by the voter as topics to send direct mail literature! The also use those 2 voter selected issues as talking points on follow up conversion calls conducted exclusively by the campaign!

I don't wanna give away too much strategy. Please trust Ron Paul. It's not his first rodeo. He knows exactly what he's doing. He also arguably has the BEST phonebanking director overseeing the National PFH program.

Insightful

TY!

Phone Banking is an area where those who are abroad can help

Callers do need US based phone number. That does not mean you need to be in the United States. There are virtual and hardware based solutions that do allow to keep IP based telephone, for example MagicJack.

Whether you are US soldier serving in Middle East, or Canadian, that is how you can contribute, donate your precious time spent calling to identify other Ron Paul supporters.

It will take time, most of the callers would not pick the phone, many calls will go to the voicemail.

Fully completed calls, in my opinion, represent probably less than 10% of overall calls and I see that this number is consistent and comparable to the other callers' experiences.

Most of the people cite that economy is the issue #1.

49 Calls So Far

I made 49 calls in just a few spare minutes yesterday, mainly because no one was home! I only talked to 3 live people (I think everyone was Christmas shopping on the last weekend before Christmas.) Two were not interested, one hung up on me. I ended up leaving about 15 voicemails using the system.

Can someone who has made it through a whole survey tell me how many questions there are and what they're about?

I'm excited to talk to my first "live one."

And for anyone who hasn't tried this yet, it's SUPER easy to do. It's easier if you have a headset (which I do) so your hands are free for navigating the web page.

Making more calls later today. Wish me luck. :)

I've made over 1800 calls total...but I joined back in Oct

The surveys vary depending on the state you're calling. In Iowa, it's a very simple survey. Here's the sequence of events:

1. "Who would you vote for?" (Read list of choices)
2. "What 2 issues are most important to you?" (Read list of choices)
3. Conclusion: "Thanks for your time & participating in survey. This call was paid for by Ron Paul Presidential Campaign Committee."
4. Then click on "call finished" and survey gets submitted to the Campaign so they can make followup calls : )
5. The next voter is automatically dialed and a new survey pops up.
6. Repeat from 1.

Good luck! and spread the word on Phone From Home (PFH). We need all Ron Paul supporters to jump in on this. All hands on deck! This is how Rand Paul won his senate seat. This is how Ron Paul will win the Presidency!

Are you supposed to talk to

Are you supposed to talk to them about the issues at any point? Or just take the survey? This is unclear to me....

Ask them the survey question, no need to get into issues.

Go right into it and follow the script VERBATIM! This script was put together by one of the best phone bankers out there, Nick Spanos. He's done phonebanking for numerous campaigns in the past couple decades.

He loved Ron Paul's message and is ready to do what it takes to get victory. So follow his lead in phonebanking and don't modify the script. Follow it verbatim.

The last line of the script is 'Thanks for participating in this imp survey. This call was paid for by RP.' Click on 'call finished' and the next voter will come up automatically. No dialing required! No need to discuss issues at all. Don't get held up in conversation unless you feel the need, get drawn in, or voter asks you a question--use your best judgement. Move to the next voter and knock out as many calls as you can.

It's a state of the art system. It's very easy to do. The campaign makes call backs or follow up calls based on survey info we provide in order to convert the voter to our side ; )

I would love to!

I think this is great! I would love to do this.. only one problem.. I'm deployed.. How great would it be to tell a potential RP vote that I am calling them from Kuwait!

It'll be great if you can

It'll be great if you can participate, though I don't know if Ron Paul's site checks that you're American with any better way than incoming U.S. numbers.

Still, if you can only get momentary access to what is considered a U.S. phone number, you can set up your Skype and then use that to call in. I'll send you the details.

If it were technically possible, I think it

could be very effective. but I'm sure you are spreading the message among your peers right where you are.

Still Need Firefox or Google Chrome?

Am doing just about everything else including hundreds directly to campaign and hundreds to Super-Brochures.

Explorer still not compatible with this program? If not, will work on downloading one of the other browsers today!

IE is a no go

Must use Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.

Campaign said that Chrome works best! I use Firefox with no problems and have successfully completed numerous calls since Oct.

After my morning farm chores

I usually have several hours to call and I think its fun to do! I usually can do 40 +/- calls per hour. Please, everyone, even if you do 20 minutes, it is worth it. It will definitely be worth the time when Ron Paul is President! (How's he gonna fit us all in the WH for dinner?) J/K!

thank you!
