How do we attract the Gay vote? The Black Vote? The Female Vote? Liberal, Hispanic, Upper Class, Democrat, the...?Submitted by TxRedneck on Wed, 01/11/2012 - 23:27
I keep seeing post on how we attract a particular group's support for Ron Paul, I'm personally kind of offended by such, but these only rubber bullets...
After listening to Ron Paul for 14 years there's one particular thing I've notice. He always says the same thing. Doesn't matter who he talks to, its always the same. The questions he gets from these different groups are different, but not his answers. Doesn't matter what group he talks to, his answers are the same.
Ron Paul does not change his message to meet the expectations of a particular group. Some call that pandering, and pandering is generally considered a dirty word. Pandering. That's what "THEY" do. Ron Paul does not pander. He tells the same message to everyone. If they don't like his message, so be it.
So how do we convey Ron Paul's message to the Gay voter? Same way we convey it to the straight voter.
How do we convey Ron Paul's message to the Black voter? Same way we convey it to the White, Brown, Red, Yellow or Red/White/Blue voter.
How do we convey it to the Female Voter? Same way we convey it to the Male voter.
And the list goes on, and gets bigger all the time, unless we stop looking at all this as groups that we need to create some special message designed to appeal exclusively to them.
The message is the same, no matter who you talk to. The only difference is the questions you get back.
Ron Paul has CONSISTANTLY directed his message toward people, not groups.
We should too.
