NJ - Important Strategy Meeting This Tuesday for the June Primary!Submitted by Nonna on Mon, 05/07/2012 - 12:10
It is important to keep in mind that the New Jersey campaign for Ron Paul is STRICTLY GRASSROOTS. We have been doing the work on the ground all over the State. We need a lot more help from everyone, especially from DPers who live in NJ.
Come to HQ located at 109 Mercer Street, Hightstown, NJ, this Tuesday at 7pm to join in the conversation of what our strategy will be going forward.

ATTENTION ALL DPers!:
We need help! Please contribute whatever you can spare to the NJ LIBERTY MONEY BOMB! http://njlhq.chipin.com/nj-liberty-moneybomb
UPDATE: The meeting, with approximately 40 people in attendance, went on for 3 hours + without a break. Ron Paul supporters came there from all over the State and from EVERY District! Amazing… EVERY DISTRICT in the State! It will take a whole lot more than 40 people to pull the strategy off but, the fact that there was someone from each district in attendance is a big advantage for us. Nobody expected that people would make a 2 or 3 hour drive to get there, much less add to that time the horrendous NJ rush hour traffic, but that’s what happened. So, I am happy to report that we have people in New Jersey who are very determined to work for Dr. Ron Paul and the cause of Liberty, even knowing that the odds are against us right now. It was so great to meet dedicated fellow DPers there!
The first speaker, Rob, was a fellow DPer(!) who came from Bucks County Pennsylvania to thoroughly explain to us how to get the job of getting RP delegates elected done here successfully. Most of the time was spent with the strategies he so generously shared with us, and following through with specific details, which I will not bring up on a public forum for obvious reasons. NJ residents, Neil Scholss, MikeWard, Lynn and “Paulaholic”, gave presentations regarding the actual implementation of the NJ strategy. All rest of us were there to learn, help out, make connections with other supporters, offer comments, and ask and answer questions. It was a long night and a long commute and ABSOULTELY worth the effort to be there!
If you live in NJ, you already know that bottom line is that all the delegates go to Romney after the June Primary. That’s where we come in. It is our job, “our” meaning every single Ron Paul supporter in New Jersey, to make sure our delegates and committee persons are the ones elected (and, yes, the delegates WILL ABSTAIN rather than cast a vote for Romney at the national convention in Tampa) and to take over the State GOP from the bottom up.
It is up to all of us to: 1) hand out delegate lists at the polls on election day (respecting the legal limit); 2) get to every Republican in our districts, door to door, and ask for their votes for our delegates (not necessary to say who those delegates support; 3) distribute RP fliers , super brochures and delegate cards door to door; 4) get a write in campaign going to elect committee people; 5) phone bank (we have our own script and system, since the national campaign is NOT getting involved in NJ); 6) get together to make and implement plans for our districts; 7) run for local committeeman and committee woman positions in the GOP; and 8) DONATE TO THE NJ LIBERTY GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN!
We are getting NOTHING from the national campaign, despite desperate, repeated requests. We MUST fund the Ron Paul campaign in New Jersey and the Grassroots campaign is the ONLY Ron Paul campaign taking place in this State. The money sent to the Chip In is used to purchase what we need from the national Ron Paul campaign, so they get a piece of it, too. Please, please, pahleeez donate to the Chip In if you want to see any sign at all of a Ron Paul campaign presence in the Garden State! FYI, there is a donation cup at NJ HQ and we did pass it around last night. Joe, whose name you will see when you click the Chip In link, is always at the meetings at HQ with Neil and Mike. I know Joe personally, as do many of us active RP supporters in NJ… just to let the cynics among us (and I am one of those cynics) know that Joe is for real and this is definitely not a scam.
I don’t know what the big change Doug Wead will be talking about tonight is. I am hoping that their strategy is changing to include NJ but, with the Primary only 26 days away (June 5th), I do know that we cannot afford to wait for them. We’ve already waited much too long for them to respond to us, only to get “no” for an answer. So let’s do it for Dr. Paul and the Judge, New Jersey! Paul/Napolitano 2012!
Message From Mike Ward:
In order to successfully carry out our strategy, we need all hands on deck at NJ Liberty HQ in Hightstown along with your generous monetary support. It's the only way we'll pick up the crucial momentum Ron Paul will need to take the RNC Convention by storm.
