Campaigning for Ron Paul

I spoke to the head of the grass roots campaign in Charleston before the Charleston debate. He explained the phone banking and canvassing program. That is really the only way to "convert" voters because all of the research has been done for you before you call any voter on the list. The concerns of those particular voters are printed out for you and all RP materials are there so you can address the particular issues and articulate RPs stand on each. It is a very scientific approach, if you will, and prooven effective.

We can all sign up to Phone from Home on the Daily Paul. We can go to MeetUps.com and find a support group near us, or contact the RP campaign office and volunteer to do phone banking and/or canvassing in that area. But we need to get the MESSAGE OUT, one way or another. We certainly cannot rely on the media. I'm getting my husband out of his recliner, we are turning off the TV and volunteering to help. I hope that thousands more decide to do the same.

Evil flourishes where the righteous do nothing.

FOX AND MAIN STREAM MEDIA

I think it is time that we join together to boycott main stream media. Any ideas?

Now, gingrich is almost tied.

WTF?

it is the zio-media and they are cheating him up there somehow to make gingrich look good when actually he is way down the hole of trash where he belongs, the two-timing hypocritical globalist bigot!

NOW HEAR THIS ALL PAUL PATRIOTS.

WE MUST OCCUPY THE ZIO-MEDIA AND THE ELECTION!

THE ELECTION IS ALL ABOUT FRAUD AND VOTE RIGGING AND IT MUST BE ASKED, WHAT IS THE SENSE IN HAVING A VOTE IF THE ELECTION IS FIXED, OR TAINTED?

RISE UP!!!

WE THE PEOPLE MUST TAKE BACK THE ELECTION AND THE MEDIA MACHINE NOW. THESE ARE THE TWO WEAPONS OF THE BABYLONIANS AND HAVE BEEN USED EFFECTIVELY TO CONTROL THE VOTE, AND THE PEOPLE.

OCCUPY THE ELECTION AND THE ZIO-MEDIA NOW!!!

Testing the effectiveness of campaign material

This is my first post even though I've been a lurker for some time now.

First I was very delighted with Dr Paul's performance in the last debate and I hope he will reap some positive gains in the primary tomorrow.

I have an idea I'd like to share - as everybody knows there's a RP brochure project going on that has attracted a lot of enthusiasm and personal financing, despite some
contention over its effectiveness.

This got me thinking - we could employ some simple scientific techniques to validate and improve campaign materials and therefore optimize the effectiveness of the resources spent to print and distribute them.
1) Compile existing campaign flyers/brochures and solicit fresh user generated ideas (design competition?)

2) Run a selection of this print material in digital form as online display ad campaigns, and collect data on how well they perform. This should be pretty low cost as we only need enough volume to get some significant comparative data. Most ad platforms would let us target by age group and a range of demographic parameters.

3) Rinse and repeat, and conduct further scientific testing until we have optimized a 'super'-super brochure that will give us the most bang for the buck, or even a number of pamphlets for different demographics.

In web marketing you would normally be sold this idea through buzzwords like click-through rates, conversion funnels, A/B test, segmentation..... I hope my summary above is somewhat more penetrable. I have some capacity to set up infrastructure for this, so if anybody is interested to participate - please respond and we can talk further!

KEEP CALLING.

Ron Paul 2012

2013 United States President Oath of Office

How can Congressman Paul do in 2013 as President. What can he achieve in his first few moments after taking the oath of office? Think back and go forward to what must be repealed, and put into action. His debate and media performances need to be more specific to the issues 70% average voters discuss. A portion of the Presidential campaign is reaction or redirection of the candidate/ media soap operas back to the real issues.

The Dr. Delivers

No hyperbole but Ron Paul did super duper great in that debate. He must get a bounce off of this debate. Yes!!!

Gingrich - Our last threat

Once Gingrich and Santorum are dismissed, Ron Paul will trash Mitt Romney. Santorum has no support and will drop out soon. Gingrich has the potential to stick around. He has that rebel school kid smart aleck attitude. Most Americans grew up in public schools, where we're taught to stand in lines and obey authority. The smart free spirited kids rebel board with what's offered to them. They are popular. And they often wind up in trouble for meaningless rule breaking. That's what Gingrich represents to many Americans. And it's dangerous. When he's called out for something like telling a wife with MS he wants an open relationship, he stands proud and gives that authority a scolding. These people raised by the school system know authority is often wrong, and have no internal moral compass. They don't know that being thrown out of office for ethics violations would make him extremely dangerous in the white house and give him zero change versus Obama. However, once Gingrich is dismissed, we WIN. Ron Paul will dominate Mitt Romney as we all know.

We must dismiss Gingrich!

AGREED, BUT...

Agreed but the media have turned "Gingrich the Hutt" into "The Last Action Hero". They're making him out to be a great defender of some kind, unfortunately he's defending the indefensible, he is a scumbag, but the media are force feeding him to the sheeple & they are consuming it, & asking for seconds. You can't watch the news without getting Newtified over & over again, across the entire media spectrum, it's an over the top onslaught. Newt cannot win tomorrow, Ron Paul has to have an upset & blow this thing wide open.

Do you agree with Sarah Palin on Ron Paul?

http://www.libertyology.com/2/post/2012/01/do-you-agree-with...

Some really good analysis on Sarah Palin's effect on Ron Paul and South Carolina. Write some feedback and comments.

Ron did excellent in the

Ron did excellent in the debate last night, IMO. The format (less candidates, more time) really helped him articulate his views more cogently to people.

I'd like to see Ron break out something different next debate

I think Ron did very well last night. With that said, I'd like to see him break out something different next debate. Since the debate crowds seem to love Gingrich and yes,he is an amazing speaker ( actually better than Obama at articulating). If I were Ron, i'd probably throw out something to the nature of remembering that it was not too long ago ( hint 4 years ) when the nation was swindled and taken hook, line and sinker by another eloquent speaker ( Obama ).

I'd also like Ron to call out the media, and actually look into the audience and camera and ask them if they notice the...... treatment, dismissal, lack coverage, lack of debate questioning or only certain questions that stay away from monetary policy etc....by all forms of media and ask themselves, why? I think it's totally something Newt would do, and the crowd seems to eat that stuff up. No, I'm not a Newt fan!

You know if the media hates him, the establishment republicans hate him, the establishment dems hate him and the crony corporations hate him, then he must be good for us.

This was not a complaint, just a thought for future debates.

At least someone like Ron

At least someone like Ron Paul has the opportunity to debetate in these kind of debates in the US. In other countries like germany where I live this would be be impossiible. Consider yourself lucky.

To expose the Mainstream

To expose the Mainstream Media Bias, you may have to send
the following video viral.
Most Americans know the mainstream media manipulates stories, manufactures illusions, and exploits fears. But the reason is more than just liberal bias or sloppy reporting. Behind the Big News exposes a revolutionary agenda originating outside the media that defines today's headlines.

Good stuff man.

Good stuff man.

A TOP SHELF performance by Dr. Paul!

HE really nailed several key points,

Now that he finally has a little more time to talk.

A few points on which I thought he was particularly good...

1. The immigration thing where he compared the borders of Texas with the Afghainstan/Pakistan border. NAILED IT!

2. ZERO inheritence and ZERO federal income taxes.

3. On states' right for issues like abortion and how he saw abortion as an act of VIOLENCE. Well said!

4. How laws reflect the MORALITY of the people. Nailed there too!

Excellent performance - Just in time!

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Yes, but ...

It's too bad that the only performances that are getting any attention are those of the other candidates. It makes the other candidates look more popular, which, in turn, might sway voters into making what they think of as a more strategic decision to vote for their second choice candidate because they don't want to "throw their vote away." When is something going to be done about this?

when

we decide to take over the media...you can't win a political game when the entire media propaganda machine is set up against it you.

STOP MEDIA MANIPULATION

In the past 24 hours, 10 NATO troops have been killed in Afghanistan and 15 injured. 6 of those killed were Americans. The French are threatening to pull out of Afghanistan because of this incident. These deaths are big news and yet it's being suppressed and downplayed in the media.

I believe it's being downplayed because it might help create a surge for Ron Paul, the only anti-war candidate in this race, and because it might favorably affect his results in tomorrow's primary.

CNN is has definitely downplayed this story all day, and it doesn't appear anywhere on the Main page of the Huffington Post and is buried somewhere in the World Page.

I'm not buying either that the helicopter went down because it had "tehnical difficulties".

The more comments posted on this story, the more they will be forced to bump it up.
