The Iron is HotSubmitted by JustLiberty4US on Sun, 04/15/2012 - 21:47
Greetings. This is my first forum post. I recently joined after coming daily to the DP for the last six weeks.
The PA primary is next Tuesday. You must be a registered Republican to vote, and voter registration closed last month. Therefore, I knew that I didn't have much of a network (only registered Republicans) or much time to make a difference. I donated money to RP, educated myself, made a huge sign with the kiddos for the front lawn, emailed organizations, and bought my hemp t-shirt.
I then read Allen Stevo's book, "How to Win America for Ron Paul and the Cause of Freedom in 2012," for a second time this weekend. The first time I read it, I could not see myself doing what he suggested. It was too far out of my comfort zone. I would casually mention Dr. Paul in the past, but I was not assertive when speaking to others about voting. Today that changed. I contacted people that I have not spoken to for many months (well over a year in some cases) and asked them to consider voting for Dr. Paul. Listen, the iron is VERY hot right now since Santorum is out. Today I contacted my Christian friends and the response could not have been more positive and quick. I know for a fact, that Dr. Paul has three more definite votes because I asked people to vote for him. AND it was so nice to catch up with old friends. I sent the video below to my Christian friends; one said she was "furious seeing Mitt Romney oscillate over his stance on abortion," and then had her husband watch it. They told me they will now vote for Ron Paul. I sent the attached comparison sheet and video link.
Some on the DP indicated that they have no more money to give; however, you can give your time and effort. Everyone, even if you are busy raising young children, has the time to contact others. Please, find your friends, family and acquaintances and send them a video and information that speaks to them. Many Christians don't know where to go without Santorum. People want to do the right thing, but they need the information to do it. I also asked my friend who responded positively (and is well connected in the community) to send the links to other friends.
The DP is great. I've really enjoyed all the news, thoughts and ideas. Dr. Paul will win in Tampa, followed by a victory in November. President Paul!
