Americans ElectSubmitted by twehle on Sun, 04/01/2012 - 09:13
No matter how you feel about Americans Elect, the least we can do is make sure Ron Paul qualifies to be the national candidate using this route. Then it will be up to Dr. Paul whether to accept. Therefore, we don't have to argue about whether AE is a good organzation or not, we just have to get him qualified. That alone will make news, that alone will give his campaign a boost!
Some are confused and concerned about their being disqualified as a Republican delegate if they vote for Ron Paul on the American's Elect site. No problem! If you are already a delegate and uncertain, then do not participate in AE. But for the REST OF US... Can we please take 60 seconds each to go to Americans Elect and login and ADD OUR SUPPORT FOR DR. PAUL? I can't believe we are missing this opportunity!
Why is this a perfect fit for Dr. Paul? Because this is an internet caucus event and Ron Paul practically invented internet campaigning. In one day we could qualify him at Americans Elect. I also have no doubt that we can get him on the national ballot using this opportunity!
Why aren't we? Maybe because we are stuck on one track? Maybe because we feel Americans Elect to be a threat, outside the mainstream campaign and so disloyal. I think you will agree that Ron Paul has always been about the freedom of his supporters to support him and his ideas in the most inspirational manner that they can - as long as it is done with tolerance and respect.
In summary: Some are suspicious of AE, others feel it wrong to do anything outside of the official campaign. We can disagree on these points, but for now let's work together to get Dr. Paul on the AE ballot - after that we can debate the fine points and while we debate, Dr. Paul can decide whether or not to accept the AE candidate slot we have prepared for him.
Bottom line? We need Dr. Paul as our next President. Anyway that we can further that goal MUST be pursued. Americans Elect is a clear opportunity for Ron Paul to be our next president - and may be the BEST opportunity.
Time's a wasting! We only have 30 days! Let's not let this opportunity pass. Please login and and vote to support Congressman Ron Paul, today.
In peace and cooperation for the election of Ron Paul,
Terence, Williamsburg VA.
Virginia Draft Leader, AE.
