An Endorsement that Matters!

I was thinking about an endorsement that could actually be a "game changer", and I really couldn't think of any one person that would truly have that type of influence.

What if we wrote a really digestible and well thought-out endorsement that really spells out why Dr. Paul is America's only choice, then get it signed by a significant amount of people. (I don't really want to name an exact number, as I am unsure what exactly would/should be considered "significant").

I think a headline reading "Ron Paul endorsed by the "average American", or simply "the American People" would be far more effective/influential than say, "Palin/Demint/Rogers/ect. endorses Paul".

I don't know, just my thoughts. If I had to put a number on it (maybe I'm dreaming) I feel like we could get 250,000+ to sign.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, endorse Congressman Ron Paul for the President of the United States of America."

Ideas to Include:

*from fishyculture:
"In these tough economic times, hard working Americans are still donating money to fund a candidate FOR THE PEOPLE. While Wall Street and the Banks continue to donate massive amounts to buy political sway, THE PEOPLE send their money to Ron Paul. WE THE PEOPLE endorse RON PAUL."
Something like that.

*from backtobasics:
Well written and should maybe also include, the fact the establishment ignores him and degrades, an elder, and a Dr. is because they are scared of his ideas, the constitution was built to last...I think we should have a well written message that ervy Paul supporter speaks on camera about

They signed a document already

A check.
Go to opensecrets.org and note how many small, individual donors there are versus big corporate donors. "In these tough economic times, hard working Americans are still donating money to fund a candidate FOR THE PEOPLE. While Wall Street and the Banks continue to donate massive amounts to buy political sway, THE PEOPLE send their money to Ron Paul. WE THE PEOPLE endorse RON PAUL."
Something like that.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Yes great point!

I will add that to an edit of the OP as an idea to include.

I like the idea - but how do

I like the idea - but how do we get it into people's hands so they know about it? It is very frustrating to see people supporting Romney, Newt and Scumtorum. I know if people really saw the support RP was getting it would be easier for them to get on board too.

I agree that it would be difficult to get it out there,

but we have a pretty good start so far. Between Iowa and New Hampshire, we know that 83,068 people were comfortable casting their vote for Paul, these same people would presumably be comfortable "endorsing" Paul. This shows that the numbers will be there if we have volunteers reaching these people. Using the phone from home program, we could also be killing two birds with one stone, we could ask for their support, ending with a request that they pledge their "endorsement" as well. If we take the good old fashioned route of going door to door, it can serve as an opportunity to stir up good conversation with undecided voters as well. Of course there are risks with that, and we definitely would have to be careful not to turn off voters by appearing pushy/annoying.
There still would be the huge problem of getting this out to people, but if this was something worth doing, I am confident that we could organize and use the many resources already available. I would rather not rely on an online petition type thing because the legitimacy of such a thing could easily be questioned and taken less seriously. I don't know, I wouldn't know where to start exactly, but I think this may be an interesting project worth a thouhgt or two.

Well, I think that you are

Well, I think that you are probably right...no one person is going to make a difference. It's going to take more than one. Right now some of the bigger names who might lean towards him are afraid to make any kind of controversial move that might cause a backlash, or allow them to be singled out politically. People don't generally like being a lone wolf of political dissent...it takes brave people to do it, and brave people to be early supporters. There are probably some who are still waiting to see if he can win a state first, who will then test the waters. But the more people who are brave enough to speak out and endorse him now, the more the ball will start rolling as people begin to feel it's finally 'acceptable' to start supporting him.

Any feedback?

I don't mean to shamelessly bump this but....

I think you have a great point

Well written and should maybe also include, the fact the establishment ignores him and degrades, an elder, and a Dr. is because they are scared of his ideas, the constitution was built to last...I think we should have a well written message that ervy Paul supporter speaks on camera about, and we need to get to Hollywood, people like Vince Vaughn and Joe Rogan that have connections and the money to help out the campaign...that being said, a little off topic, but keep up the ideas and good work

Absolutely!

I love the video idea too. I have seen similar things on youtube, and I think it would be powerful to compile a video/montage of dozens of everyday supporters, that the average voter can relate to, touching on a huge range of reasons why support Paul. This can show how dynamic and deep the general message of liberty is, maybe chopping together one reason for each supporter that is interviewed. It would also show how diverse our base is.
