Lack of qualified California leadership

With California's deadline nearing, I decided to finally create an acct here to air something that's been bothering me for weeks that should be known. I sent a detailed, 4-paragraph, willing to do anything, how can I help email to Robert Vaughn, whom according to one of the posts I read here weeks ago, was the southern California leader of the Paul campaign. His reply quoted: "make sure your a republican becasue he will be on the ballot in June." That's all. Nothing else. No guiding my yearn participate in any way. Just thought everyone here should know this and realize this so-called leader, leads like a loser.

Perhaps go to the local campaign office directly or join your local meetup, or sign on to become a delegate and monitor dp and ronpalforums are good too. Be the change you want to see in the world.

I agree w you. Tried to find it for 4 months.

If you try to call the campaign i suggest you don't do it as you will be ignored and kicked in the teeth.

Hang around this website.

The BEST BEST thing (if you have some money) is to get a list of registered voters from your county.
l. get the list above
2. order a few hundred SUPER BROCHURES (you can order them here)
3. go to the houses on the list above of registered voters with a fellow Ron Paul supporters. Invite them to check out Dr. Paul and give them a SUPER BROCHURE.
4. Go to a MEETUP (see posts below) You will meet people and then you can go "sign-waiving". It's a lot of fund and then the people in your county will tell you about other activities that are going on like setting up a table at a coin show or a gun show or whatever show.
5. A super way to "leverage" is to call church pastors by phone and drop off a super brochure to them along with a Christian brochure.
6. Get creative....that's what we all do and do phone.ronpaul2012.com

You are the leader

We are all leaders. No one is going to do the work for us. Instead of griping about what others arent doing for you go out and do what you can for others.

-Find every meet up in your area
-Read roberts rules
-go to your party meetings
-talk to everyone about ron paul
-post/wave signs
-become a delegate
-become a precinct captain
-get printed material to spread around
-make your own material to inform others
-recruit friends, family and passerby's to register republican and support you in your cause to vote for Ron Paul
-call meetings
-make action plans
-write letters to the editor
-call in radio shows
-read up on the issues and local candidates and become the go to person to ask on who to vote for. Most people dont have a clue who the local people are or what the issues are, they will trust you.

There is plenty to do and not enough people to do it. Don't wait to be directed. This is the revolution, it is up to YOU to lead it!

Matt, Being here on the DP for 4+ hours, My adivce is to listen

to the grassroots. They will guide you to do what you can within the framework of the grassroots. We got the Revolution to this point. Don't fret. It is what it is. Join a Cali. meetup, facebook page and follow their input.

If you are looking for anything else, you could be mistaken about this movement. The campaign is doing what they do best. I love it! The grassroots does what it does best.

I implore you to do what you do best. Are you a leader, follower, troll. Please don't take offense but(4+ Hours) if you want to lead you came to the right place. Our suggestion would be just to "LEAD".

Semper Fi my Friend.

What to do

Here are a list of actions to take to help Dr. Paul in California.
1. Hand out the Super Brochure to anyone who is even slightly interested. Talk to them. Tell them from your heart that this is America's first and last chance to elect an honest and decent President. (First because we have never had in our lifetimes a man of truth who has consistently stood his ground for Americans and the Constitution for 22 years--never wavering while being chastised, maligned, and tormented by his peers and those in power. He is the only unbribeable politician as confirmed by convicted lobbyist, Jack Abramoff. Lastly,it cannot even be insinuated that America is a free country, if he is not elected. An executive order for martial law to be imposed at will even without conflict or for emergency measures has just been finalized by those currently in power. That is called a dictatorship. FEMA camps are built and ready to accept those who need to be taken care of.)
2. Make sure people are registered as Republican, that they know the exact day and time to vote. (Votes are being stolen, so an exit poll should be established at all the largest precincts and affidavits signed by Ron Paul voters. For complete information go to this link, www.ronpaulvotecount.org.)
3. Go to local businesses that you patronize and tell the owners and everyone else there about Ron Paul. Ask if it is OK to leave literature. If you need literature, contact drkresearch@hotmail.com.
4. Offer to drive people to the polls to vote for Dr. Paul.
5. Talk to friends, relatives, people at your meeting places or place of worship, anyone you come in contact with during waking hours. It's difficult when people are rude and nasty, but keep a smile on your face and your words friendly. It's likely that the next person will listen and be ready to favorably respond.
6. Don't give up. Don't stop believing.

Listen to Ron Paul's message...

...personal responsibility. Just get out there and DO it.This person you so casually call a "loser" will be working flat out for YOUR rights as a American citizen. The lest you can do is be pro-active, off your own bat. Shame on you for whinging that someone wont hold your hand.

Don't wait 4 the organizers! Meet up with others and Just Do It

Do sign wave, go door to door, calls for RP, talk to everyone, pass out flyers/brochures, post on bulletin boards, pass out flyers at malls, churches, functions, put up yard signs, bumper stickers, wear your RP shirts everywhere...Just do it!

I know it may see like a

I know it may see like a backhanded slap to the face, but he is a busy guy.

Best thing to start off doing is attending a local meetup to get your foot in the door. If you see other opportunities arise within that group, then you can expedite a larger role with the campaign.

I've been itching to do more myself, but where do we even begin? Well... begin with your family and friends. Once that's done, join a meetup, and start canvassing for voters with a stack of voter registration forms. That's the key to California, a predominately democratic/independent state. We need more republicans.

So in part, Vaughn is mostly correct. The biggest thing any one of us can do, is register Repub. and vote for Ron Paul.

End the Fed. End the Wars. Problems Solved. Ron Paul.

Step up and get to work.

Don't wait to be told what to do.

Do your research. Figure out what you can do to help... and do it!

and what will you do now?
