As my first post on DailyPaul, I would like to propose a new strategySubmitted by dfbeav on Fri, 02/10/2012 - 02:04
As we are all aware, the dear Dr. has not been doing as well as we have hoped. I believe it all comes down to the older generation. Most people in the 40+ demographic do not use the internet as we do. They don't share links. They don't know that youtube is more than just cat videos. They get their news and develop their opinions based off of the MSM. We need to reach them some other way.
We HAVE to capture some of the older demographic.
I have been trying to devise a way of doing this that is easy and cost effective. In an attempt to get something going on Reddit, I have been contacted by another reddit user, suzie61. This person has come up with the best idea yet:
The block of republican voters that aren't supporting Dr. Paul seem to not be active on the internet and still get their news from the TV. I decided that a letter would be a good way to reach these voters. Since the group includes many older voters I decided to mail letters anonymously to people from the phone book (these people still have home phones) as well as to people I know. This letter could also be used as handout literature. I tried to write it to target the issues that polls show are most important. Electability is at the top of this list so I framed it around that issue. Here's a link to view the 1st page of my letter: http://imgur.com/sur2Z and here is a link to the actual document that is downloadable if you would also like to use it.
Guys, this is it. We need more things like this. I know that I am definitely going to be mailing some of these next week. I think this might be even more effective than the Super Brochure because it's more personal and won't be seen as junk mail. BUT, the letter AND the Super Brochure together will produce more "RONVERTS" than anything else we do.
I think that if we ALL print off twenty copies of this or more this weekend and mail it to people we want to convince, or just random households, we can get a win for Dr. Paul.
It's time to stop spreading links between ourselves and get the word out to everyone else!
