MISSOURI - Help Ron Paul visit our StateSubmitted by ThereforeU on Sun, 12/11/2011 - 17:40
Missourians, if we work hard by finding the appropriate venues it would very seriously encourage Ron Paul to make a one-day visit to our State early enough in the Primary process for us to be able to use it to our advantage at the caucuses. The campaign has indicated an interest that is dependent on our commitment to the project.
A single day would provide a great deal of leverage to our efforts to find existing supporters by allowing us to take advantage of the large crowds that a Paul visit would generate. We could be signing up all kinds of new people for volunteer activities and the end-goal of all that activity - large numbers of Paul supporters participating in the Missouri caucuses.
Here's what we'd like to see:
The campaign (that has indicated a definite interest dependent on our efforts) would choose a single Saturday and agree to fly into airports in the three largest counties that include St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield. These three counties carry the most weight at the caucuses.
Armed with a date and times we would contact ALL our local media outlets - print, radio, and television - and leverage the power of our Meetup groups, existing contact databases, flyering the college campuses, and shareable Facebook event pages to garner much attention.
Paul would stay in each location for a short rally and a speech before flying on to the next location. Existing county coordinators and their volunteers would man an entrance booth at each event and sign up all the willing rally-goers for further contact either electronically or very legibly by obtaining their name, phone, email, preferred method of contact, and county in which they are registered to vote.
What we need is the following:
Initial suggestions of any preferably private location at major airports that would allow us to host an event. I am in Springfield and will be contacting my wife's employer as he owns a large private hanger at the Springfield airport. If anyone has any suggestions of similar locations in St. Louis or Kansas City or even Springfield, please suggest them here or call me.
