Pennsylvanians: Boycott The Apr 15 Money Bomb! (Unless...)Submitted by DanInPhilly on Thu, 04/12/2012 - 12:16
OK, people, looks like we Pennsylvanians are gonna have to play hardball with the national campaign.
We were Ron Paul's number one state in 2008 in raw votes, and almost number one in vote percentage.
We're Ron Paul's home state (he was born here and raised here until med school).
We have a realistic chance of gathering 35 delegates and an outside chance of gathering up to 50 delegates to the national convention. Those are unbound delegates that you know you won an hour after the polls close, not delegates to a meeting to a caucus to a convention who just might get elected unless derailed by the Republican machine and some obscure paragraph from Roberts Rules of Disorder.
So howcome the national campaign is treating us like a red-headed step-child?
So howcome we get The Doc for only a measly hour on the Sunday before the election?
Doesn't the national campaign look at recent Penna polling? Don't they see the huge number of undecideds?
Have the national campaign big-wigs been away from the grassroots so long that they forgot that the reason for the candidate to campaign is to fire up the activists so that the activists in turn fire up the grassroots to get out and vote?
If the campaign appears uninterested in Pennsylvania, why should Pennsylvania activists be interested in the campaign?
Don't make us boycott the 4/15 MoneyBomb......
On the other hand, if we get The Doc for a solid week of some good old fashioned campaigning (and OK, we'll let him talk to those nonvoting college kids too ;-)), maybe, just maybe Ron Paul will win his first State.
