Idea for the RP campaign to win over the senior citizen vote!

Ron Paul does terribly amongst elderly voters. The Federal Reserve specifically harms the elderly the most. Ron Paul is the only politician fighting against the Fed and defending the interests of the retirees/elderly. Perhaps this message could be emphasized so that Ron Paul's worst performing demographic could become a base of support, instead!

I Am In My 70's

I would like to see Dr. Paul tell seniors on social security that they get cost of living increases and the two years Obama took away from us be restored. IMO

I've found this to be a VERY effective

way of winning older Republican voters over to Ron Paul. I've been going through my Republican governor's list of FB frinds and sending them the following message. So far, I've gotten great feedback.

I am currently going down the list of my Republican governor's Facebook friends and sending them the following message.

Mr. Doe,

President Barrack Obama in my opinion has been a terrible president for this country. By the end of 2012, Obama will have increased our national debt moreso than all previous 43 presidents combined. On top of that, he has given the Federal Reserve free rein to spend trillions of taxpayers' dollars bailing out banks, some of them in Europe. Add to that his attrocious, national health care bill, and I believe most would agree that defeating him this year is of the utmost importance if we are going to preserve our Constitutional republic, dollar, and anything resembling a sound economy.

I believe the surest way to defeat him is have a candidate that can draw a clear contrast between himself and Mr. Obama ideologically while at the same time being able to sweep the Independent vote, without which Obama would not have won in 2008.

I believe the one candidate who can do this is Ron Paul. Now, I know what you might be thinking. Ron Paul is a kook, Ron Paul is a loon, Ron Paul is a nutcase, Ron Paul is a liberal on foreign policy, etc. To be honest with you, when I first heard Ron Paul in the 2007 debates, the first thing that came to my mind was, “What is this guy doing running as a Republican?” It just never crossed my mind that a Republican would oppose the Iraq War, because it was a Republican president that initiated the Iraq War. But after a little research, I realized that one of the tenets of old-line Conservatism was the foreign policy that Ron Paul advocates. Ronald Reagan praised Ron Paul on foreign policy, saying, "Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country." Republican presidents Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, and Republican presidential candidates Robert Taft and Pat Buchanan all had the same foreign policy as Ron Paul. They believed America should have a strong military, but that it should be used for OUR national defense, not for somebody else’s national defense. They were all against the United Nations and like them, Ron Paul wants to get the U.S. out of the UN and kick the UN out of the U.S.

The foreign policy that Gingrich, Santorum, and Romney are advocating is the foreign policy of Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Wilson's liberal foreign policy ("make the world safe for Democracy") was brought into the Republican Party in the 1970s & 1980s by disaffected Democrats who were frustrated with the growing socialist agenda and hippie anti-war element in the Democratic Party. These "reformed" Democrats infiltrated the Reagan administration and dominated both Bush administrations. They have a utopian world view (all liberals live in a utopian fantasy land) on foreign policy that the U.S. should use its military to establish Democracy world-wide in the hope that one day the entire world will be Democratic. In other words, they believe we should spread Democracy the same way the U.S.S.R. spread communism. I believe other countries would be better off Democratic, but I don't think we should invade them and force them to be democracies.

Ron Paul is the ONLY Republican candidate that would balance the U.S. budget in ONE presidential term and the ONLY one that would GUARANTEE a victory against Obama. I hope you will consider casting your vote for Ron Paul in the Republican primary since he's the only one that understands how serious our debt and monetary problems are and is the only one that would even attempt to get us out of the UN and restore our national sovereignty. Thank you for taking the time to read this and God Ron Paul is the ONLY Republican candidate that would GUARANTEE a victory against Obama. I hope you will consider casting your vote for Ron Paul in the Republican primary since he's the only one that understands how serious our debt and monetary problems are and is the only one that would even attempt to get us out of the UN and restore our national sovereignty. Thank you for taking the time to read this and God bless.

P.S. Please watch this short presentation on our American foreign policy. It explains why Ron Paul gets six times more donation from active-duty military personnel than all the other Republican candidates combined.
