We Can Win: Great Success In Louisiana With Just A Few CallsSubmitted by Dr.K.Research on Fri, 04/27/2012 - 19:35
Just got off the phone with a sweet lady in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Told her that a historic event was happening in her state, and she could help us make history: the presidential caucus. A fan of natural herbs and medicines, I told her that we have a big supporter in Dr. Ron Paul and that it would be great if she went out and caucused for him. She said, “I like Ron Paul” and “I’m against all these wars, so tired of it.”
Told her about the caucus, and she said, “I would like to go. Can you tell me where it is?” Now, I’m new at this, you pros, so was just excited at her excitement. Found out where is her caucus/parish and informed her.” She wanted to know the time, so I called the local RP Campaign office. Oops: they couldn’t find her on the roll; she isn’t a registered Republican.
So, I called her back.
Disappointed but not discouraged, she said, “I love Ron Paul. I just told my husband we’re going to caucus for Dr. Paul tomorrow—and I’m going to go to my church early in the morning and fire-up all my friends.”
“I’m so against these wars, and I love everything about Ron Paul.”
Told her not to despair, there is still something she could do. She can go there and bring friends; she could replace her and her husband's desired positions with two or more registered Republicans.
Gave her number to the campaign guys, who called her and encouraged her; she said she bunch of people at her church and she will try to organize them to caucus in the morning.
Called a health food store owner. He said he caucused last time; many of his customers are huge fans. Has RP literature at the front, but, apparently, wasn’t planning on going. Now, duly informed, he said he will go ahead and go. A registered Rebublican, the RP campaign office followed up and called him, and he confirmed his plan to go.
Called another health food store owner. A huge fan, but wanted to make sure she went to the caucus. Told her to haul all the humans she could. She responded with something better. As a major player in the industry, she said she would call ALL the owners of ma & pa health food stores in LA and fire them up.
Note: keep in mind that this is a BIG thing for businesses to hear from us. It's the herd reaction. When they realize we are massively behind Dr. Paul, many WILL become a part of it. It's good business.
In Texas, California, Indiana, and others, call those business owners you know. Find out when they have a free moment, and give them a dose of your enthusiasm. Look at Louisiana: it works.
A few calls: postive results.
Moral of the story: NEVER take anything for granted. It won't just happen. We have to make it happen. Call, and call some more—all night long. Support the LA Campaign Team, and make those calls:
We are inches from victory. Just a few more successes and we win. Let the hundreds of DP'ers each make those calls, now. The rewards will be phenomenal.
What an inspiration. I will always remember that lady’s words, and her thirst for a better, more peaceful—kinder and more gentile—world. Keep talking to everyone you can. Never, never, never take anything for granted. Convert the whole world to Ron Paul. The results will be stupendous, beyond imagination.
