How to sell Ron Paul to the old GOP?Submitted by Deet on Mon, 12/12/2011 - 19:16
I think we need to sell Ron Paul to the old GOPers with a paragraph or less that we can post in comments of articles or use as talking points in discussions. I am trying to find a quick short way to do that. I don't think going into issues makes much sense, it just starts arguments. Almost all old GOPers want Obama gone. With that in mind, our power is our grassroots support and the enthusiasm of the youth. This is a sample of the type of comment I am posting in places where the standard old republican gets their news. My point, let's start harping on the VALUE of a large grassroots organization with passionate supporters that will work in the general election, but only for Paul. Read my comments below and let me know if you offer any improvements! And if you think this is a better route than talking issues? Basically, it doesn't even matter what Paul has to say, do you want to get rid of Obama? No matter their stance on the issues, no one can deny the enthusiasm of the Paul campaign, therefore, there is no rebuttal to this approach!
Example of comments I am using.
Ron Paul has a grassroots enthusiasm larger than ANY other candidate in the history of the US! Let that sink in. Ron Paul has the youth and the energy behind him to win the general election. No other candidate has anywhere near the passion of the Paul campaign. Ron Paul gets TWICE the donations from our military than all others COMBINED! Paul polls 10 full points ahead of every other candidate with the independents, the group that determines who wins! Is the Republican party really going to snuff this out? Do they really think Newt will get out the vote of anyone other than the white 60+ year olds? If the Republican party snuffs out the Paul campaign, they WILL lose to Obama. They will enter the general with a moderate candidate that has ZERO enthusiasm and skeletons galore, there will be NO spark. And it will be the "anti-Pauls" that re-elect Obama. Does Newt have 20 year olds out waving signs for him? Does Romney? They're dead in the water, a NO-GO! The writing is on the wall and it is crystal clear, nominate Paul or live under Obama! Choose NOW!
