Idaho Super Brochure Drive

S U P E R B R O C H U R E S   T O   I D A H O

In support of caucus state Idaho, I have created a Chip-in to encourage folks to donate in any amount they feel compelled to contribute.

A key benefit of donating to the chip-in is it will allow us to make Super Brochure buys in those precincts that have larger numbers of Super Voters which carry larger costs than some may be able to manage on their own.

As Goldstock has pointed out we need wins and with Maine hopefully becoming our first, let's blanket Idaho to ensure it becomes our second or third or fourth!

I haven't figured out how to embed the chip-in here but the link to the chip-in site is here: http://idsuperbrochure.chipin.com/idaho-super-brochures

Thanks for your participation and let's help ensure a Ron Paul caucus win in Idaho!

Note: I am also submitting this to the Ron Paul Super Brochure folks to vett this and make available on their national chip-in tracker which can be found here:

Campaign Needs Money

Until maxed out, this money should be going to the campaign so that it can be used in alignment with their strategy to amass delegates.

Like I said in another post...

there should never be any argument against donating to the campaign.

I suggest you put yourself in the shoes of those folks in Idaho who have been driving 100s of miles across that huge state to do whatever they can to get the vote out and convert new RP supporters.

Idaho, despite a recent visit from RP, has not had much, if any, formal campaign support. So what would you do if you were an Idahoan and wanted to deliver your state to Ron Paul and Liberty?

You would most likely do what they have done. Donate some to the campaign and the rest going to paying for canvassing and meet ups. For those in Idaho who maxed out to the campaign, they went right for Super Brochures.

There were people who asked for help. I and others stepped in to help and all you can say, after we've been doing this for two weeks now, is telling us "this money should be going to the campaign...."?

How does this help us? I mean really, do we need a lecture? It's not like Idaho doesn't have delegates too!

I'm in Idaho and I have

I'm in Idaho and I have regularly contributed to the official campaign, and am going to do so again tonight - - but I also paid for 2 precincts of super brochure mailings because the get important information to "Super Voters" (those who always vote) right before the caucus. There's no reason we can't support both because both help the cause.

I totally understand that

and no one can disagree that this is an excellent allocation of funds after one is maxed out- so why are people badmouthing it? Why not simply call it 'Level 2 Support' or something? There is clearly a concerted effort to torpedo the SB. I for one cant understand why.

Chip In Donators Please Read!

With the generous challenge posted for Idaho SBs, I decided we could double our efforts by ending the chip in now so those funds get matched.

There was a total of $470 chipped in and a very big thank you goes out to all who contributed! That $470 will now be worth $940 thanks tot he $15,000 challenge posted Saturday!

I threw in a little extra to take out that last big precinct.

Many in Idaho do not realize they will be caucusing...

this election. Last time they had a primary, but currently, voting locations and information are still TBA.

Many people will not realize in time to vote. Put a Super Brochure in their home and you will get a potential Ron Paul VOTER into the right mind set to actually go vote!

Small precincts count too so a bunch of folks making $10 and $20 precinct buys will add up in the final vote tally!

Do it today!

You're a little late Lenny...

but glad you signed up TODAY to tell us how it's done.

Maybe you could "engineer" something for us?

Don't you dare shit on this thread and the people in Idaho who have worked their asses off. I don't know where you came from or why, today, but it was not to contribute ANYTHING positive to the people making an effort...especially in Idaho.

Those fine folks in Idaho asked for help. Where the hell were you?

Available precincts in the following counties

I've compiled a list of of target counties based on the number of precincts left to buy, the dollar ranges from least to highest still remaining.

Power ~ $160

Update for Idaho!

In the last 6 days (2/6 thru 2/11), roughly 7100 Super Brochures have been bought and sent to precincts in Idaho counties.

7 counties are completely bought. Updated map showing bought counties, partials and the one county receiving 2500 direct to newspaper subscribers are highlighted:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CXFxogiUvL69_aO00Rwf8di3...

Idaho is almost if not completely a grass roots effort. Please feel confident in sending SBs to any precinct in any county. They will be well received!

Lemhi County Project Update

With the help of some Super Brochure donors across the Daily Paul, SJIdaho will be receiving enough brochures to send as inserts into 2500 subscriber's papers!

SJIdaho did the heavy lifting in contacting the paper and I have tried to meet their effort by picking up the cost to distribute these in the newspaper. That check was sent to SJIdaho today.

The delivery date will be February 23!

It should come as no surprise to anyone that SJIdaho is already setting sights on Butte county to the South. This will be on top of Custer and Lemhi counties which cover a large area of central Idaho.

I had the pleasure of speaking with SJIdaho for the first time today and I urge you all to support Idahoans in any way you can. People like SJIdaho have done the hard work of getting into positions as precinct chairmen etc. where the real impact is made in getting delegates for Ron Paul.

I also learned the importance of reaching many more Idahoans via any means possible because their caucus this year has replaced their primary. So people are new to caucusing in Idaho. We need to take advantage of the enthusiasm of Ron Paul supporters and make sure they get out to caucus and vote.

Buying even the smallest precincts to mail Super Brochures for $10-$20 will make a difference!

With your continued support, Idaho WILL register in the WIN column for Ron Paul!

There's a lot of cheap precincts

I sent 11 brochures. If a whole bunch of people here do this than we can finish Idaho. Let's go and not only win the delegates but also hammer it down with the straw vote!!

Thanks you two below!

We appreciate the contributions. I happen to live in North Carolina myself and things haven't really picked up here politically.

I've been ignored by the State Board of Elections and my local county GOP via contact form and phone call/message. I'm trying to manage a way to get out of working during part of my day to visit the office in person. Our county conventions will be starting within 2 weeks. They either have what (who) they want or they are inept around here.

Chipped in!

Hey I'm glad

Someone is helping to get us focussed on Idaho!!! I think we have a really good chance there, especially compared to a place like Georgia, where Newt will probably clean up and the results mught look very similar to SC just based on 08 performance and the demographics. Idaho is a great place to try to work, and it's small so we could feasibly cover the whole state if we tried. I'll chip in momentarily with $25. If I knew for sure that I wasn't going to be laid off next week I'd give more...

Edit: I'm in Virginia by the way. Here we will only have Romney to compete against. I'm still waiting for the VA superbrochure to post. (I hope SB plans to do VA)

I'm not in Idaho . . .

in another Northern state that has not had any caucuses or primaries, yet.

I want to help, and I think the best thing for me to do is call from home.

I had to get a new phone, and that took time--

Got it--*hurrah*

I'm not very computer savvy, and I've been looking all over for that 'program', the call from home program; I didn't sign up, because I didn't have a working phone--

Can someone tell me where to go--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Go to the Ron Paul website

http://www.ronpaul2012.com/sign-up-as-volunteer/

Signup and then check what you want to help with!

Thank you, Northstar . . .

for taking the time to help me--

I found it, and I'm signed up--

:)

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

2 Boxes (1800) of SBs on their way!

Courtesy of Dr.K.Research! I received direction to contact Curt @ Super Brochures and he acknowledged receipt of request and estimates the SBs should reach SJIdaho this coming Monday or Tuesday.

Curt also wanted to thank all of those folks in Idaho on the ground and those supporting the Idaho effort!

The Idaho Super Brochure mailings have steadily been going up each day but we need a bigger push! http://ronpaulbrochure.com/id_choose_county.php

Idaho has 32 delegates at stake. A win here and a majority of the delegates and Ron Paul is one step closer to the end goal.

Thanks to all who have bought precincts! Everyone I've communicated with in Idaho has expressed their appreciation.

I have only gotten one response for more SB from Phojes 500 I believe. I will contact the paper tomorrow about payment, shouldn't be a problem. I also will contact fishyculture for more brochures. I have requested brochures from Dr. K research, haven't heard anything yet. I will need another 1300 to mail the 2500 to subscribers (have an extra 50 which I wanted to send to Filer Idaho to the gun show this weekend, but would use those if necessary.) Talked with the Custer GOP chairman I am Vice Chair, today and he feels that Lemhi and Custer will go to Paul and infact he feels the State will go to Paul. God I hope so! Idaho Falls most likely will go to Romney.(Mormon) There is a big RP presence in Idaho. Certainly hoping for a win for Paul! Thinking this will be a low voting turn out due to caucus probably will help Paul. Thanks for you help much appreciated.

Thanks for the update...

Let me know as soon as you can tomorrow what the final status is on getting SBs from those folks. If we do great, if not, I'll get them ordered.

Would you please contact me and give me a mailing address so I can have the SBs sent to you in case I do have to purchase them?

If you could also give me any phone numbers and contact persons at the paper and any details you think pertinent (like your name so they know when you come in that it is for you) for when I pay for the inserts that would be great!

SJIdaho

Please contact Fishyculture to see if brochures they have can be gotten across Idaho to you.

Please let me know what if anything comes from that. Also, please let me know if you have worked anything out with Dr.K.Research.

I want to begin taking action to make this happen tomorrow to ensure we get this done in time. I need to know a final needed SB count and I need to know if I can contact the paper directly and will they accept payment from me for when you drop off the SBs to be inserted into the paper.

LB2 was gracious enough to let me buy a case or two of SBs if we needed from his donation to the chip-in. So you WILL have what you need.

Thanks!

Wish it was more...

....but here's $50 to the Idaho chip-in effort. Personally, I've had great results with the brochures. IMHO, the SB is literary dynamite - lots of power in that piece of paper! I will continue to give as I'm able. Ron Paul or none at all!

Thank you!

This is fantastic! I'll be making another push for the chip-in sometime today. If I can get away from work for a little while you'll see it.

We're still going to get SJIdaho some more SBs and into that newspaper throughout Lemhi.

And this is open to anyone with knowledge of Idaho, if you know of any key precincts or counties you believe we should target I will certainly direct the chip-in buys to those areas.

Thanks Grambo!
