Just a Suggestion...Submitted by bigeasylu on Fri, 04/20/2012 - 15:22
I was one of the ten thousand that showed up at UCLA a couple of weeks ago, and it was AMAZING!!! But to my dismay, we are really struggling as a movement to raise money, especially in the new year. I can just speak for myself when I say I have 3 part time jobs and have had to cut back on personal expenses (cable, cell phone, switched my car to a scooter, etc.) and i am literally tapped out in every sense of the word, but i still send 25 dollars every time there is a money bomb. My suggestion is why doesn't Ron Paul ask people to donate to the campaign during his 45 minute speeches? He should be taking 5-10 minutes telling these enthusiastic crowds to donate, and where to do so. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF US, DR. PAUL! People have smart phones and can do it while they're at the speech/rally. Getting people to sign up as Republican should be followed up with have you donated to the campaign? No? Well, here is where you can do it right now. It would be nice to hear it come from Ron Paul himself. He MUST stress the importance of donating. If i'm going to alienate myself from family, friends, and co-workers please do your part, beg if you have to. Every rally should be a money bomb, and the people want to hear you ask them, because then it becomes more personal, as opposed to this grass roots led money bomb, which were tremendous at first, but have clearly lost steam. We need to shake it up, and I think the answer is in the THOUSANDS that he is attracting to every rally. Not one time at UCLA did any campaign staff ask if I had donated, I heard at least 50 times from different people "have you registered Republican yet?" yes, yes I have. IT NEEDS TO BE FOLLOWED WITH "Great! Have you donated as well?" this will help. What are your thoughts?
