Whole new ballgameSubmitted by scottfreedom2012 on Fri, 03/30/2012 - 22:02
Just got another email asking for money with the above title. I have to ask what ARE my donations going to? I am 53 and have never donated to a candidate before and have given to every moneybomb, on his anniversary, bought and donated supplies to University of Arkansas YFRP group and even Carol's birthday.
I have driven to Iowa to help and got to speak at a precinct during the caucus. I have had to start putting it on credit cards because I believe so much that in this cause. I am trying to be a Santorum delegate in AR because that is who will probably win this state.
I joined the GOP and now find myself helping with our County GOP Lincoln Day dinner and somehow am now in charge of ticket sales, photo op and helping set up and tear down the fundraiser. I have had to take my Paul stickers off my car because of the way the leaders feel about him and need their vote to be one of 3 delegates in our district.
I was one of the first 4 people to start our meet-up and one of the most active.
Now he is asking for more money and in the message it says "But if we're going to succeed, I'm going to need to run a full-scale GOTV program, including targeted mail, email, and phone banks."
He has received what 25 million in donations so far and other than paying his family and a campaign manager that I don't know what he does what does 25 million buy? Email-free...phone banks-free volunteers- mail-do they not cross check who they send emails too? I get mail asking for money and its a waste but other than that, he doesn't seem to run many.
Sorry, but I am going to keep volunteering and calling and trying to be a delegate but money?? Well I just can't do it any more. I hate saying this and probably will get shot down but it seems like their is no campagne other than what the grassroots is doing and doubt Paul would think I should go into debt anyway.
I just don't get where the money goes... Maybe down right now about the direction everything seems to be going even after stopping watching the MSM and Faux news.
To peace and liberty! Paul 2012
