Sick of bad news? Here's some good news!

I'm not much of a phone from home person, so I have decided to visit as many houses in my Iowa precinct as possible today. I haven't been able to set any speed records, as there are no towns in my precinct and the homes are generally 1/2 mile apart.

So far, I have only had 1 person that didn't want any Ron Paul information. The remainder gladly accepted and I have 2 more sure bets to add to the supporter list, and 2 that will most likely vote for Ron Paul!!! :) *excited*

Some of the comments from people were:
-Newt is a slime (that's one of my personal favorites ;)
-You can't trust Romney or Newt
-You can't trust the news
-A vote for Romney or Gingrich is like voting for Obama
-If our financial situation doesn't change, we'll be a 3rd world country in no time (and that came from 3 different people, wow)

Now, keep in mind that I did not lead these people into comments, I simply offered a packet of Ron Paul info if they were interested! I even had one guy thank me for volunteering for Ron Paul! (which I take as high praise here in neoconville)

So here I go! Off to spread more Ron Paul holiday cheer!

Just a quick update:

Had a great day yesterday. Will continue on Monday :)
(Happy Holidays to you all!)

I think that door to door is the best angle for my precinct. I had several older folks look at me funny, then say, "Oh, I know you, you're _____'s granddaughter", or "You're ____'s daughter". My family has farmed this area since the early 1940's, so that helps!

I will try to get to every house before Jan. 3rd. I haven't been pushy with anyone, which I feel will work best in this area. I simply leave them with the info, and let them discover Ron Paul at their own will. I feel it will lead to much stronger support.

After our caucus, I fully intend to help other states, but I'll only focus on my precinct until then, it's my only chance to have a face-to-face introduction. I want to make it count!

Thank you to all for the overwhelming support! I can't wait to help you all with your states after WE WIN IOWA!!!!

Door to Door

I totally agree with you on going door to door,a group of us have been doing this in a neighboring state.I would go to the door and remind them about the primary coming up and then ask them if they had heard of Ron Paul or like Ron Paul,then would say something like 75% of the troops support him and if we want to honor the troops why dont we listen to them!!If the response for Ron Paul was very positive, I would ask them if they wanted a yard sign or bumper sticker.We planted about 50 signs and gave away about 50 bumper stickers.Out of 4000 houses we maybe had 8 gingrich and romney and 10 obama sometimes we would get 8 out 10 houses for Ron Paul!! This is how we win,people just watching fox news or listening to talk radio wont do this.

IN addition to the pre-printed campaign literature already made,

either from the campaign itself or Superbrochures, you could also, in newspaper boxes leave tea bags. They should be wrapped for presentation. Get them pre-wrapped & put TEA PARTY 11.COM on them. It is the most unusual piece of campaign literature & who doesn't want a cup of tea? Very affordable, however much tea bags are.

For some reason, we're expected to know every law that exists in America & in our state so we don't break it. We're supposed to know this when we're 18. There's no litmus test for them, as in the 10 commandments or rhyme or reason. C.U.R.E.

It Takes People Like You!

That is awesome! Thank you for all your hard work! Keep spreading the message!

I agree thanks for the hard work!

...

Heck yeah man!

Keep up the good work, Boots! (Get it? Boots on the ground?)

Thank you!!

Love it..."Boots"!! :)

thanks for your efforts !!

this is how we take the truth directly to the voter,
i hope u took their contact info and would remind them near the Caucus date to remember to attend the caucus and vote for Dr.Paul !

Chertoff - Homeland INSecurity resigned

to go into mfg the Airport Scanners, which I not so fondly call the "Human Cooking Machines". (They've never been calibrated...)

I did not SEE ANY big guns with the Paul Campaign, his Congressional office...

Do you think these 'folks' have a reason to assure 'their' candidate wins...and Paul takes his integrity and his "Not for Sale" sign and goes home?

To Print Articles and you need a printer, go to public library

I have a Ron Paul notebook that I have been putting together with interesting articles and comments from Daily Paul to share with people. Our library prints the first 5 pages for free each day and ten cents a page thereafter, here in San Bernardino County California.

TAKIN IT TO THE STREETS!!!

You guys make all the difference in the world...Keep it up!

The Doc's message is resonating loud and clear!

Keep up your good work!

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
~ Peter Marshall, US Senate Chaplain 1947

Thank you for doing this

Thank you for letting us know. :-)

THIS is why it is true that Ron Paul has already won. He says he's trying to change the course of history... Well... HE HAS!

Thanks again for working to spread the message and setting those brush-fires!!!

Door to door is best

However, after the Iowa caucuses end, I hope you'll reconsider joining PFH so we can all call and identify Ron Paul supporters in future caucuses and primaries.

This is how Rand won his senate seat. This is the most convenient and powerful way we can help Ron Paul attain victory.
Cheers!

I agree. A neighbor's friendly smile

and direct answers to questions or concerns is very effective.

RP monetary policy

This is how I respond to people who think a gold standard is ridiculous or impractical.

Please explain why the gold standard component is off base? It's quite simple in this large economy actually easier than you think.

Wanna buy a gallon of gas for a dime?

Pre 1963 dimes have $3.50 of silver in them.

Putting a small portion of gold and silver in currency with zinc, copper etc is a no brainer.

If Ron Paul only gets 30% of his policies in place, the world will be better for it.

This revolution cannot be stopped and I fail to understand why many people do not yet realize this is a growing movement that is way beyond Ron Paul, the man. His ideas are timely and true and We the People have woken up. We are already on Wall St and on our way to DC. This has much less to do with Ron Paul than you think.

It blows my mind how so many RP supporters have been politically apathetic to politics but are now activist in their own local, state and national politics. And it's not about Paul, it's about his ideas.

Over the next two election cycles, you are going to see dramatic change. Any incumbent who has voted for war, bailouts, Patriot Act, War on Drugs....is fired. All of them, mark my words.

SC Gov Haley, Senator Graham, you have been put on notice.

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

why harp on the gold standard?

when ron paul has no intentions of going back to it.
his plan is to allowe gold and silver as legal tender.he doesnt plant to abolish FRN.it will die on its own by competition with gold.we need to emphasize this plan of ron paul and extol the virtues of last century.we need show them the future.

great news, and thanks for

great news, and thanks for your hard work.
I'm glad more people are open to Ron Paul, and realize you cant trust the news, so much progress just within the past few years.

My new year's resolution is to be more positive

I've been way too negative lately. So bring on the good news! :-)

Thank you to each and every one of you!!!

Your awesome support keeps me going!!!

I went out again and visited quite a few more houses, all gladly accepted the packets! Then I headed home to call it a day. Another good friend of ours was here when I pulled in the driveway and said he wanted a bunch of Ron Paul yard signs and campaign materials to disperse in a nearby town! FREAKIN' AWESOME!!!

So, I want to thank each and every one of you for all of your kind words....it means the world to me!

LOVE YOU GUYS!!...it's a rEVOLution, baby!!!

Thanks!

Way to douse the flames of negative posts with good news! We need more posts like these and more people on the other posts to bump them.

Bump:

To help keep the positive fires of enthusiasim burning, give +1 to people who donate, buy superbrochures, or make calls.

hand wrapped For Liberty

Hand delivered. Hand wrapped "For Liberty" DVD's with a hand written tag that reads "Love thy neighbor as thyself. Peace on earth, good will to men. Merry Christmas" to every home in the neighborhood.

Glad you got off the computer

Glad you got off the computer as some of this news is disgusting. Still awaiting my brochures, then I will do the same.

Thanks for the glorious (!) good news, glory!

Yes, getting out for canvassing, planting RP signs and signing really helps me neutralize that bitter sour nasty aftertaste that MSM mischiefs generate.

Happy merry RP holiday cheers to you, too!

YEAH!

That's how we roll!

My problem in Storey County, Nevada,

is that most of the people I contact by phone are FOR Ron!
But, they want to talk to ME about how thrilled they are with him. This makes for lots of time in getting many numbers tallied. I find it impossible to cut someone off when they're telling me how much they love him. I'm also having very good success in reregistering independents & libertarians.
