The Super Brochure is Cool

One of the greatest things about this campaign is that it's supporters are decentralized and creative enough to start their own version of the perfect way to get people on-board.

I like the Super Brochure and am waiting for it's critics to do a better job.

I try to change people every day. Do You?

The Super Brochures...

Have not won us a single state, quit giving money to this they will only work if you go door to door and explain the issues, not send them some brochure. What a waste of money this has been and continues to be.. Not only that, but they keep saying people are going to match with a large donation, but its most likely a gimmick.. And probably never happens. I Thought Ron Paul supporters have more common sense then others?

So far as I am aware

Nothing so far has won us a single State so that particular observation is meaningless. Go away and do your own thing to win the States that are left. Stop undermining others' efforts to achieve the same goal. You are kicking in the wrong direction.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

and they aren't super...

I sure hope the pushers of the Super Brochure do some serious soul searching before the next election...how many signals do they need from the official campaign that they are hurting the campaign?

The exception rule:

There is a time for using the brochure if you identify the person as already on board with the numerous issues covered by the brochure...

Which brings us to the basic rule of marketing and campaigning that they violate.

"Don't make your issue, their issue."

See: http://youtu.be/Y5hibexsQVY

My biggest beef with the Super Brochure is that it leads our new activists to think that they are doing activism...that campaigning for Ron Paul is simply done by mass mailing brochures. I can't tell you how sad this is for the Liberty movement. And I've seen it happen first hand in so many states...for one thing, people wouldn't show up to the official campaign headquarters because the official campaign wouldn't allow them to walk door to door with the brochure...so many people just wouldn't show up. Now @FreedomLover2012 is being over the top claiming that the donation matching story is a gimmick/scam.

Whatever you decide, please don't forget that the most effective way to spread a message is by getting to know your neighbors in the community. Learn about what makes them tick - take a genuine interest in their lives. Let's go!

"If you’re into political activism, at least for Ron Paul if not for anyone else, I strongly recommend spending some time with iroots.org." - Tom Woods

"Don't make your issue, their issue."???

You must not like Ron Paul then, before his campaign how many people's issue was the Federal Reserve? very few, Non- interventionist foreign policy? few, following the Constitution? unfortunatley few. The Nanny state loving, welfare collecting, warmongers will never like or Vote for Ron Paul until they realize the folly of their thinking

Looks like the Revpac subversives are out in force again.

Why do you do this? Is it personal or just obtuseness on your part? I know that the Super Brochure people do not attack Revpac but Revpac people continue to attack the Super Brochures.

Every effort has its place and the attacks by Revpac and rp2012.org on the Super Brochures are simply destructive of the efforts of fellow Ron Paul grassroots activists.

Do not deceive yourself that you know what you are talking about and hide your malice behind professional jargon. It takes all kinds of people and all kinds of activities to reach people effectively. The Ron Paul grassroots has enough opposition from the establishment without shooting itself in the foot by certain elements attacking others.

It is not true that the official campaign opposes the Super Brochures. There are certain commercial enterprises that have been hired by the campaign that may see the Super Brochures as competition for campaign dollars and of course the Revpac people who also see them this way.

They therefore attack them just as they might attack any commercial competitor. One might say that this is the ugly underbelly of capitalist free enterprise and why many people find it so abhorrent. It is this dog eat dog thinking that many people associate with libertarianism and it is this characteristic that both Revpac and rp2012 are demonstrating in their attacks on the Super Brochure.

Thank goodness there are other liberty minded people like the OP and the folks at Ron Paul Products who demonstrate the positive aspects of this philosophy. The Revpac and rp2012 people would lead the nation back into the same mess it is in today since they work in the same predatory way the major corporate cartels operate. They are morally no different than the opposition the revolution is trying to replace.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

You are spreading lies

You slander those generous people who have donated anonymously. EVERY PENNY of the matching donations have been applied.

With all this slander, whose side are you on? Are you trying to drive away these donors, who have already maxed out?

And what are you doing for the campaign? If anything, prove it.

Well said Doc.

You are a true patriot and I personally commend you for all the efforts you and Curt and Erik have made with the Super Brochures. They have been a success in spite of the efforts of the opposition to sabotage them.

It is Americans like you who give us all hope that Dr. Paul will be successful and the world will be a better place because of it. It is hard to imagine a more important cause at this time in history than getting Dr. Paul elected to the Presidency. The Super Brochures have been an important part of this effort and will continue to be so until Dr. Paul is elected.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Ron Paul's Campaign not Curt's Pocket!

I agree, thanks Freedom Lover, I can see you love freedom and I do too.

Super brochure

Anyone want to match me?

I'll match you for official

I'll match you for official campaign donations up to $250.

Official campaign donations...

...will do NOTHING for us in CT. Nada. There is no Ron Paul campaign in this state, it's 100% grassroots and we are thankful for the super brochure mailing program. I have gone door to door myself as have others, but we don't have the manpower to get 20,000 or more of these things out ourselves. The mailing program will spread Ron Paul's message far wider than we can in this state for sure. I can't understand why people are against it when IT'S ALL WE HAVE HERE. If you want to get the word out in CT, you either buy up some districts, or get off the internet and get to work in your neighborhood. There are far more with the means to do the first than there are with the will to do the latter.

Taking the first option away helps the cause of liberty how exactly?

Download Ron Paul Pamphlets Free!

Ron Paul pamphlets on Abortion, Israel and the Federal Reserve written from an evangelical perspective can be downloaded free from the attached web site. These pamphlets are very effective on Christians that really care to know the truth. Give them a try and tell other Ron Paul supporters!
http://userpages.bright.net/~av1611/PresidentRonPaul.htm

Mark, your Abortion pamphlet is still wrong.

I mentioned this before and it appears that you have not made the change yet. Dr. Paul HAS introduced legislation to achieve the objective that you have specifically stated he has not pursued i.e to define life as beginning at conception. This is the Sanctity of Life Act.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanctity_of_Life_Act

Dr. Paul's efforts to overturn Roe v.Wade and return the issue of abortion to the States have been consistent. He has also sought to define life as beginning at conception with the Act mentioned above.

Dr. Paul has indicated that he is in favour of only punishing the doctor who performs the abortion and in this he is in agreement with Mr. Santorum. Nevertheless from a Federal perspective he says that the issue belongs with the States and this is the purpose of the We The People Act. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We_the_People_Act#We_the_People...

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Anyone want to match me? So they can match us?

I just worked all day but IM willing to give it up to have a better chance at Liberty & Freedom!

The CT strategy: WIN the 5th district! Buy for those towns 1st!

The CT strategy: WIN the 5th district! Buy for those towns first. They are everything Waternbury and north, and west of Hartford. Dr. Paul did best in this reegion last time.

Buying in the 3rd is a total waste. I live here, and though there are some really active supporters in my town, we are composed of neoliberal democrats and Romney-loving seniors.

So, FOCUS on the fifth!

Time 100 Poll

Ron Paul is currently the third most influential person of 2012 according to current Time magazine poll. More influential than Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum combined. This is an unprecedented opportunity for us bypass the media blackout and draw national attention to the only candidate that can get this country back on the right path. Help Ron Paul get the attention he deserves and vote today.

Official voting ends on Friday, April 6, and the poll winner will be included in the TIME 100 issue.

Colchester, New London County, Connecticut

Still at it? I was hoping this project was abandoned

I'd rather donate to the Ron Paul campaign than to Curt's pocket. Sorry!

You are free to choose

I guess you hate Ron Paul's message. We have a free market and people are free to do what they want. If you hate freedom so much, go donate to Obama's campaign

2 Chron 7:13-14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Yeah, you're free to waste

Yeah, you're free to waste your money. Have fun doing so. Do you not realize that the Super Brochures have no positive effect on undecided voters, and that sending things to Connecticut is a complete waste of money? Ron has no chance of winning CT and there's a reason it hasn't been targeted by the official campaign. All you armchair campaign managers are just wasting your money on these crap brochures. They make Ron look like a kooky extremist.

I encourage to donate to the campaign if you actually want Ron to win. If you want Ron to lose and Curt to become rich, then sure, buy lots of "Super" brochures.

You are clearly wrong

I'm not saying that 1 county can demonstrate whether the brochures work or not, but check out Winneshiek county in Iowa, where I sent Super Brochures to both Independent and Republican voters:

2008
Romney 33%
Huckabee 20%
McCain 18%
Thompson 15%
Paul 11%
Giuliani 2%

2012
Paul 25.25%
Gingrich 24.53%
Romney 22%
Santorum 20%
Perry 5%
Huntsman 1%

I have maxed out to the campaign, so I cannot give there. I personally feel that the Super Brochures have value because of the media blackout. I disagree that the brochures are crap, in fact I think they are put together very well.

Go away

2 Chron 7:13-14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Two questions

Weren't Super Brochures sent to EVERY SINGLE county in Iowa? To say this one county did good because of Super Brochures is ludicrous. Also, the official campaign poured millions of dollars into Iowa, so of course they were going to do better.

Did you also know that people on the ground in Iowa complained about people having inaccurate opinions of RP cause of the Super Brochures?

Stop giving the Super Brochures credit for things they didn't do. What they do is turn your run of the mill "conservative voter" away from RP by making him look too out there.

Listen a$$wipe

Maybe you didn't actually read my post - I said EXPLICITLY that I couldn't make the assumption that the SuperBrochure caused the increased Paul votes. I just gave an example to show that we don't know what affect the brochures had.

Did you know MANY people think the Super Brochures have done a great job informing people of Ron Paul's policies. Maybe you didn't listen to some of the calls that came in praising the Super Brochure.

Maybe some of the Iowa folks didn't like them, but many did.

I'm supporting the Super Brochure because of the media blackout. If you choose to do something else, that's your prerogative.

Maybe you should go support a candidate who is a collectivist, because that seems to be the ideology you ascribe to.

2 Chron 7:13-14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Donating to Ron Paul's campaign...

...is great and I have done it myself. But it isn't helping us in Connecticut! There's a small, dedicated group in the state working to promote the ideals of peace, freedom and prosperity but there's no way we have the people or resources to reach all of these voters. We had a contact with the campaign who was looking to get us some "official" resources (signs, literature, voting lists, etc.) in the state and he no longer answers his phone. Try calling the main campaign number these days and pressing the option to volunteer. It's rung endlessly the last 4 times I tried.

So we came up with the idea to do affordable inserts of super brochures into local papers and have 10k going out this week. Curt got us 5 cases for that cause and then told us about his mailing project coming to our state! It represents what I've always known Ron Paul supporters to be, and that is spontaneous and self-organized. Rather than sitting around waiting for orders from HQ that aren't coming, we put our efforts towards doing the job ourselves. And what is the alternative? We're either going to wake people up and change lives, or these voters will hear little to nothing about Ron Paul before April 24th in CT.

A big thank you to Curt, Dr.K, and everyone involved with making this project happen.

Just about every flyer ever

Just about every flyer ever made is more effective than the Super Brochure. That's the problem.

We wouldn't be handing them

We wouldn't be handing them out if we didn't think they were effective. We were discussing this issue at our meeting last night, everyone has seen the brochure, it's content is right from his site and speeches. Is it allot of information to process? Sure. Is it going to upset "bomb Iran" neo-con warmongers? Pretty likely. It's also likely that they weren't going to vote for Ron Paul anyway.

I'll say it again. For most of these people they're either going to receive this Ron Paul brochure or they'll hear little to nothing about him in CT. We'd prefer to continue to spread this message and fight for delegates rather than do nothing.
