Oh my gosh! What have you done?!Submitted by RedDot on Mon, 02/06/2012 - 21:57
<-- Please Bump!
What have you done for the Ron Paul campaign?!
Did you make a huge sign? Did you cover your car in bumper stickers? Did you spend hours canvasing? Did you donate to the campaign again and again?
I'm just finished with my new Ron Paul supporter website that is designed to show off all you have done and I really need some participation and some feedback!
OK, so here was my logic: What is Ron Paul's greatest campaign strength?
Money? (Nope, that's Romney)
Insider Connections? (Nope, that's Gingrich)
Establishment Preference? (Nope, that's Santorum)
Of course....it's the people! It's his supporters. So, I've been thinking of more ways to capitalize on that. Ron Paul supporters are easily 10-20 times more enthusiastic and passionate about their candidate than any other group.
So, I figured what we needed to do is to collect and harness the energy and excitement that comes from the grassroots. So many people do great things and post links to photos of them on sites like this, but they go by fast and get lost. I made a home for them!
The purpose is not to congratulate ourselves, but to inspire others and show what a REAL Ron Paul supporter does to get the word out. We need to grow our base. This is best done by turning passive supporters into active supporters. This shows them how it's done.
The idea is to not let enthusiasm die. Take snapshots of your efforts and share them. Inspire other people by what you've done. I was inspired to make this website by a lot of you out there, so I'm returning the favor.
Note, this is not a discussion or event planning site. I have no intention of diverting traffic from Daily Paul, RonPaulForms, RonPaulCountry,or anything else. I have a lot of respect for those resources and I really believe this is complementary to them and something that's been lacking to galvanize support even further.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
Well, please let me know what you think. Even if it's negative.
Note, I have a few real entries now, but the majority are images taken from the internet and are marked as examples. Please feel free to start filling it up with real supporter action so I can remove the examples. I can't wait to remove the examples...
Thanks, and have fun!
PS: I'd appreciate a comment and/or bump if you are so inclined. I've been staring at this myself for weeks on end and I'd like to get the most eyes on it as possible. I have very little feedback so far... Thanks!
