STOP NAMING DELEGATE NAMES/SLATES - The Campaign Will Get the Information

We're all excited. We love to post the names of people up for a Ron Paul slate and watch people cringe when we win.

Romney's campaign isn't stupid. There are probably tons of moles on here...since 2007/08. They collect our information, etc. Don't make it any easier for them to railroad us like they did in ND.

Just my two cents.

Can you attach a reference from the campaign stating such?

Would clear this up pretty fast.

once state conventions are

once state conventions are over isn't it ok to announce Ron Paul true delegate count on unbound delegates?

Information is Power

I agree, it's okay to say "let's see what happens with the delegates" when someone, like the MSM comments about how "poorly" Dr. Paul is doing. However, I think it is a big mistake to mention names or even numbers when it comes to delegates. The less information an opponent has about you, the better. Information is power.

Yep. They are deeply embedded and they don't play

Goldman Sachs.

Volunteers figured it out

soon enough and there are things we used to tell supporters how to distinguish the real one from the deceptive one. Future attempts might not be so easy to clarify. Loose lips sink ships!

We should...

Start an online petition to have the definition of Romney to mean "A dirty trick."

If we know who won certain

If we know who won certain conventions wouldn't if be safe to assume Romney's camp also knows who won the conventions... And if the people there know who the delegates support and that is how they know which delegate to vote for than Romney supporters must also be aware of this..
The only people who need to keep quiet are the Romney Delegates who secretly support Ron Paul. Airing Ron Paul Delegates and that we won conventions wont change anything as far as I can see

There's good reason to let this cat out of the bag.

It's a bit naive to think the Romney camp is going to be taken by surprise at the conventions.

Even Doug Wead acknowledges that it's good for the campaign for people, far and wide, to know what's going on with the delegates. That's why he's been so open with information. He admitted in an interview three days ago that Ron Paul is meeting with some evangelicals and one of their major concerns is that Ron Paul has viability and will stay in the race. It's time to tell the voters and his potential supporters just how well Ron Paul's campaign is doing.

Ron Paul has a chance to win in Texas, but Paul supporters in states like Texas and California could give up and stay home if they believe what the media is saying. The last thing we want is for our voters to sit out those primaries because they're discouraged. Lord knows the media won't even cover the unprecedented crowds at RP speaking events. They keep saying RP only has 50 national delegates. It's time to get the word out that Ron Paul is winning the delegates.

I do agree, but I don't think

I do agree, but I don't think that's what happened in ND. The reason being, is who they put instead. I think they were just trying to railroad here in particular since the beginning, as I can guess by the individuals put in place(those involved with higher end politics, not just someone down the chain that they just 'payed off')

Agreed.

Agreed.

The numbers in CO, as they

The numbers in CO, as they add up right now (16 for Romney, 14 for Paul, and 6 Santorum) equal out to 39% of the new vote for Paul , where as he got under 12% in the popular vote on Feb 7th. Since Gingrich didn't get any, this will help us solidify our status as the anti-Romney vote going into the future primaries.

Dont be sitting chicken when we have the numbers to overrun them

Too many people on here are paranoid about names.

Who cares!

Have you used Facebook lately...if so... YOU ARE ALREADY ON A LIST!

Stop with this telling people to stick their heads in the ground when their full online history is already exposed and being data-mined.

We will either organize now, overwhelm and defeat this threat... or they will defeat us one paper-cut at a time.

I do not think anyone who visits here can be convinced to...

“bury their head”.

I do not face book at all, yet I am certain much of my information is held by someone.

I have little fear concerning whether the tyrant whose eye I am spitting in knows my name.

However, it is one thing if I reveal who I am.
It is another if I reveal who someone else is.

There is always strategy involved in winning and as long as we do not resort to cheating or fear tactics, then feinting, misdirection and bluffing is all part of a fair game.

"I sleep well." Ron Paul

There is no stopping an idea

There is no stopping an idea whose time has come. I think even Romney's moles are starting to like Ron Paul.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

I agree and disagree

I am torn on the issue of disclosing secret Ron Paul delegate successes. On the one hand I agree that stealth is necessary in some important situations, but I also think that unless the general public believes a Ron Paul victory is still possible, we could lose our chance. This might be our winning message.

I understand

you point, but a lot of this is ahead of the assembly or convention. Once elected to a national delegate slot make sure you do what the campaign asks, be that pledge, announce or remain below the radar. Also trumpeting the specifics of who and how affects future strategy. Gotta keep 'em guessing how it worked or what they did or did not do that was successful.

Your two cents should have been whoever posted names too...

Absolutely agree. Whoever posted the names isn't playing with the best deck of cards. There is no reason to name names.

I say: if you can't make it better, don't make it worst!

The printed slates are usually handed out at the convention. The Romney people copied the slate style that the Ron Paul campaign was using to try and trick RP supporters into voting for the Romney delegates. The campaign needs to make sure that the printed Ron Paul slates are unique and they need to make sure they have them on all the seats at the convention in addition to handing them out and putting them in the delegate bags.

This happened

in Colorado this weekend. I agree that mum's the word. The grassroots and RP-supporters are savvy and connected (far more than Romney at least), trust that the information will get distributed.

The Romney people used info from Friday for deception Saturday. But as we enter even more assemblies opsec needs to be stepped up because they are piecing things together.

If any RomBies are watching this

you are SCUM!

Dammit, now I'm not gonna have anything to report back to Willard. Thanks assholes, for getting me fired! I've got kids you know :(

Interesting to note that word

Interesting to note that word isn't one of the well-known words the FCC demands be bleeped on TV.

Hmmm...

How'd I do that. Did they stop censoring here or is it because we're referring to the Rombies?

Good point

Never give the opponent unearned information.
