I'm so ashamed right now. Updated: I am so proud of you all!Submitted by glory on Wed, 01/04/2012 - 17:39
Am I ashamed because I'm an Iowan? No
Am I ashamed that I drove door to door in my precinct to spread the word of liberty? No
Am I ashamed that Ron Paul won my precinct? No
Am I ashamed that Ron Paul won a ticket out of Iowa? No
However, I am very ashamed of the select members here that feel they need to bash every Iowan and think that somehow it will help the campaign. The valuable time that is wasted by bickering could really be an asset right now. The hours spent trying to craft hit pieces about Iowans could just as easily be spent doing something for Ron Paul.
I was hoping for a very exciting day today. Not only could I celebrate Dr. Paul's victory, but I could also celebrate my 3 year anniversary on this site.
But instead I found that many people feel that I didn't do enough, that it just wasn't good enough and the message was loud and clear. Well, I sincerely hope you can all do better in your state, I do hope Ron can win this.
He cannot win without your help, so I do hope you will find the strength to get out and get active for the campaign. I would hope that you would take Iowa as a sign that winning isn't as easy as it may seem. It's a lot of work and takes a lot of time and sacrifice.
Now is the time to start. This very minute! Do as much as you can right now! We don't get the opportunity to start over, or get granted more time, so don't sacrifice this rare opportunity. I feel 100% confident that I did everything I could for the campaign....do you feel the same way? Please, direct your energy to Ron Paul right now, he needs it more than Iowans do!
Update - I would like to sincerely thank each and every one of you, it's awesome to be part of the Daily Paul family. This place was a little out of control this morning and I just wanted to give everybody a little "wake up". Looks like the Daily Paul is alive and well!
That being said, I hope this post stressed how important it is to do everything you can now. And I would also like to stress that there were not only many Iowans, but many people in other states that made a huge impact! Much appreciation goes out to all non-Iowans that worked so hard to make a difference, and you did! I mean look at us! We're TOP TIER!!!! There were only 3 winners and we were ONE OF THEM! We told the MSM to stick the "3rd Party question" in their pipe and smoke it!
So now I would like to be one of the many that will return the favor and help with New Hampshire and beyond! We have something awesome here, but we must always be ever so diligent. The polls give a general idea of what "might" happen, but we cannot count on them. We need to push further and further.
If there is anyone from New Hampshire that needs campaign materials, let me know! I'll send them on my dollar so the campaign can save a buck. I have slim jims and a few other things left over that I would love to see fall in the right hands!
And again, I want to sincerely thank you, I've read each and every post and I just don't know what I'd do without you guys! We're gonna make it happen!
