Please bump for campaign exposure: Converted some Cain->Santorum->Romney supporters

I hope the campaign reads this.

I've had fantastic success in converting Cain/Santorum/Romney supporters of all ages to Paul.

Everybody agrees "he's honest" and "he's likable" and "he's smart" and "his policies for here are great." The crux, as you can guess, is foreign policy. I've been able to condense Paul's message to what should be a 100%-doable debate soundbite, and several people have said I should mention this so I'm posting it here. Please bump up and/or direct to the campaign eyeballs if you can.

I'll phrase this as if Paul was speaking:

----

"I don't decide to go to war - that's Congress's power. Now, if they do declare war, I will fight it, win it, and get it over with. And that includes Iran - if they're a threat to our national security, and Congress declares war, then it's all on."

"In the meantime, if we're concerned about a nation, there are many ways to be ready without agitating them. We can retarget missles, move satellites, place submarines off their coasts, train special forces for strikes. All of these things protect us without inflaming our relationships with the world."

----

I've seen eyes - literally - open wide at this explanation. Everybody is so scared about Paul being a pacifist that they think he's ready to mothball our naval fleet. These statements crystallize a wise foreign policy that is a combination of prudence, strength, and respect. In my experience, conservatives love this position.
