☛ Ron Paul: "My Status as a Candidate ~ Pledge to Stand With Me"

PLEASE PLEDGE TO STAND WITH ME NOW

http://ronpaul-2012.org/pledge.html?pid=0308

The mainstream media got the Super Tuesday story wrong. Very wrong. Again.

I'm sure you heard them gleefully talk about which establishment candidate "won" which primary or caucus Tuesday night, if you were even watching. Most Americans thankfully had more sense and switched on something else.

The fact is, just like in many of the earlier contests, very few delegates to the Republican National Convention were decided on Tuesday. Most will be decided several weeks, or even months, from now at District and State conventions - conventions where our local delegates will have a big say in who goes to Tampa.

In fact, while I didn't win any state's straw polls, my team expects me to win a plurality of delegates in at least three states, as well as outright majorities in two more of the states that have already started their process.

Of course, the media totally ignores this story - as they have consistently ignored our message, our passion, and our grassroots army.

Even more lost in the shuffle is that no candidate for President has even made it one-third of the way toward the number of delegates needed to win the nomination.

And for that reason I am determined to proudly battle on, picking up more delegates and skewering the pretensions and historical rewrites of ALL the establishment candidates – Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich.

And I will continue to proudly speak up for liberty, respecting the Constitution in domestic and foreign policy, and returning to a limited government that acts and spends within its means.

And I will continue to do so as long as you will stand with me.

So what does all of that mean?

It means this race is FAR from over. In fact, you could argue it is just getting started. With the decisive number of delegates still to be awarded between now and June, and with our activists swarming local and county delegate selections, you and I will surely end up with an army of delegates...

… IF we don't give up now.

I know it can be tempting to hear and believe the reports of how we can't win. Even worse, you can listen to the professional political class tell you that ideas, the grassroots, and the future do not matter. They rarely say it directly, but their message to you and me from Day One has been - if you cannot win it all this year, you shouldn't even try. It can be tempting to question whether or not all the hard work is worth it.

Well, I know it is. That's why I'm flying thousands of hours and crisscrossing the country. That's why I am leaving my family and home for weeks on end - to fight for the future of our movement and our country.

I am vowing to you today that I will keep fighting. I will fight in every convention and every place where delegates will be selected. I will fight until there is a clear winner - not because the media says that’s the end, but because the nomination has been clinched.

And by my calculations, that may never actually happen. Even if one candidate starts to rack up a clear advantage, it is unlikely he will have all the delegates needed to win on the first ballot.

And if that is the case, then the hundreds of delegates who support our ideals and my campaign (many of whom may be bound to another candidate for the first ballot or two but then free to vote their conscience), will be unleashed.

And they will hold the key to deciding the nominees for President and Vice President, as well as what the platform and policies of the Republican Party will be.

These things – and, even more, the long-term standing of the liberty movement - are worth fighting for, even when we are tired and feel like quitting.

But I cannot do it alone.

Will you join me over these next few weeks and months in pressing our battle forward?

If so, I MUST have your continued support today, tomorrow, and in the coming weeks.

You can show your support by signing the CARRY ON Pledge. I really urge you to take the pledge, as without your support my efforts won't make enough of a difference.
http://ronpaul-2012.org/pledge.html?pid=0308
And then, frankly, there’s something else I must ask you to do. I ask you to again make a contribution, even if it is a smaller contribution of $25 or $50 to my campaign. As you know, we run a debt-free campaign, and we pushed our resources to do all we could on Super Tuesday.

Your pledge and your contribution are critical to keeping this campaign running for the upcoming fights in other states, as well as finishing our strong efforts in key caucus states that are already underway.

As I'm sure you know, this won't be the only time I’ll ask. There will be more emails. More money bombs. More state and local conventions and elections where we must – and will – fight for delegates.

I hope you'll come to my aid every time you possibly can.

Our message is too important. Think of the issues that are dominating the political debate right now.
*** How and when to BALANCE THE BUDGET. I am the only candidate with a plan to balance the federal budget and end our debt crisis in one term;

*** Fighting for Individual Liberty, including restoring and protecting the Bill of Rights by stopping the Patriot Act and the Indefinite Detention of American citizens;

*** Auditing the out-of-control Federal Reserve;

*** Stopping the continuing bleeding in our housing market by ending Fannie and Freddie;

*** Ending all government bailouts.
http://ronpaul-2012.org/pledge.html?pid=0308
These are OUR issues. And NONE of them were part of the discussion by the other Republican candidates in 2008. Nearly ALL of the candidates now are trying to sound like us!

That tells you our message is breaking through. We are winning on many fronts.

And we must carry the message through the rest of this campaign.

So will you join me? Will you sign the CARRY ON Pledge and send your most generous contribution today to help me carry this fight forward?

I don't believe the media. YOU shouldn't either.

This fight goes on as long as you and I are in it together.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

P.S. With no candidate even one-third of the way to locking up the nomination, and our campaign set to bank far more delegates then the media acknowledges, now is not the time to back off, back down, or quit. Our liberty message and our movement are growing stronger every day.

They will continue to do so, if we continue to insist on it.

That's why I'm pledging to stay in this fight and to battle for every possible delegate. But I can only succeed if you will keep fighting alongside me. If you will, please sign the CARRY ON Pledge HERE.

And then, please help keep this campaign running by making a contribution (even if it is only $25 or $50). I insist upon a debt-free campaign, and I cannot carry on without your support.

Dear Ron,

I am vowing to stand with you today so you will keep fighting. You should fight on in every convention and every place where delegates will be selected.

Our message is too important. Auditing the Fed, balancing the budget, ending the bailouts, and stopping the bleeding in the housing market by ending Fannie and Freddie are dominating the political debate.

These are OUR issues. And NONE of them were part of the discussion by the other Republican candidates in 2008. Nearly ALL of the candidates now are trying to mimic you!

That tells me our message is breaking through. We are winning on many fronts.

Now is not the time to back off, back down, or quit.

That's why I pledge to stand with you as you carry on the message of liberty all through the campaign and to the Republican National Convention.

BUT PETER!! Buy from Ron Paul store on his site!

Yes you can still buy Paul items from his store! That will contribute money to the Campaign in another way!

great idea!!

I'm maxed out and our primary is over, but I'm willing to buy tip cards and have them mailed to anyone who will promise me to tip big to anyone they hand these out to.

The best place to shop around is in the marketplace of ideas.

Ok Dr. here's $100

I did my complaining. I was so mad and tired yesterday, but I couldn't have been as tired as RP, not even close. I was so cheered up today to learn my neighbor, whom I have tried to get on board, absolutely blew me away when she told me she and her husband voted for RP. People, this is a milestone! these people are 75ish and hard core Faux addicts. They didn't like him at all during the lst election. And, a friend of mind, who I was sure would go for Santorum, said she voted for RP. People are slowly coming around and they all understand what the media is doing. I'm officially cheered up and happy to hear from from the Dr. Shake it off and get back to Ron Paul 2012.

Keep the faith!

DEAR Dr. Ron;

You've had my back for well over thirty years, that's more than 1/2 of all my life, thank you sir.
Now it's my turn to have your back, and I'm with you, for you, and I'm not going anywhere God so willing. I will not quit, or whine when I grow weary, I will not quit when others say I should or try to manipulate me into quitting.
All in.

Drew, by the very grace of GOD through the blood of Christ Jesus.
"there shall come after us men whom shall garner great wealth using our system, and having done so shall seek to slam the door of prosperity behind them." George Washington

Ron, give us some decent foreign policy ads.

I'll contribute up to the max.

Pledge with your MONEY

RP has our support, and that's not going anywhere. But what he needs is our MONEY.

I am BROKE (like a lot of us) but I pledged my support to Ron Paul with a $5 donation.

Keep the MONEY coming in! Vote with your DOLLARS!

Show RP how much he means to us with our MONEY!

My God's not dead; he's surely alive. And he's living on the inside roaring like a lion.

kicked in another $20.12. In it to win it!

Yuuup!

Once you wake up, the direction is clear. Do we want President Paul? Absolutely! In it to win it, until there is no more option. If it should end up we can't have that, what is the next best scenario? Continuing the revolution that he started, and we now embrace. Period.
Whether or not Dr. Paul gets the nomination, there will be a long lasting 'footprint' in history from this movement, either one is part of it, or one is not. I am. May the footprint of freedom continue to grow until it covers America from sea to shining sea. No matter how long it takes.

TRUE PATRIOTS

never give up,never! i will stand shoulder to shoulder with anyone willing to stand with the good Dr until the very end, so help me God!!!!

It will be a major shock to

It will be a major shock to everyone who said that Ron Paul couldn't win. He will have so many delegates when he shows up at the convention and everyone already knows that only Romney and Dr. Paul have any chance at beating Obama. And somebody might want to remind the republican voters what happened the last time a moderate was the republican nominee...

Wrong about on thing here

Romney has no chance. The big banks are giving him money because they know he loses to Obama. Obama is their boy.

Correct.

Currently, in one-on-one with Obama, Ron is polling two points ahead, Mitt tied, and the other two remaining dwarves far behind.

In the post-nomination campaign the spotlight will be on whomever is nominated. Mitt can be expected to fall behind as the Obama machine exposes his history and smears him with it. Ron, on the other hand, should benefit enormously from the exposure of his name, platform, and consistent voting history.

So Mitt would lose and Ron almost surely win. This means Ron is the GOP's only hope to take the Oval Office.
