The sleeping bear has been awakened! Let us steel ourselves for the attack

Quite clearly the media has been shocked, shamed, and horrified by what is going on in the delegate selection process. They ignored and slept through all of the massive ralleys..... they didn't listen or understand what this "delegate thing" was all about in all of the numerous interviews .... and now that it is happening they are trying to play "catch up" so they don't look like TOTAL idiots. (I mean they have to at least TRY to look like a news media) They are smiling and joking and acting like "isn't this just so amazing and fun", as they try to NOT appear like the complete failures that they are as "journalists".

However, be prepared. Once they get their second wind, and their "instructions from above" they are going to come out with fangs and claws drawn and start ranting about how the Ron Paul people are going to be "handing the election to Obama".

If the RP people keep winning in these caucuses things are going to get really ugly. Your "friends and relatives" who know absolutely nothing but their hatred for Obama are going to get REALLY, REALLY ANGRY with you for supporting "Paul the spoiler". WE, the Ron Paul troops are going to be accused of "stealing" "manipulating", "overtaking" the process. We will be called TRAITORS to the United States if we don't get behind Romney. (even moreso than now). ALL of this negative propaganda will be the backdrop for the dirty tricks that they will JUSTIFY at the national convention. And your "friends and family" will AGREE with bending the rules in order to get this "traitor" out of the way.

The opening bell will ring when RUSH goes on a tirade about it. At the moment he is still ignoring Paul. When he goes into one of his wild eyed rants, then we will know that the instructions have come down from above, and the real war has begun!

Just a warning so that we don't get surprised and shaken.

What we must do is JUST KEEP CALMLY MOVING FORWARD in our efforts to get Paul elected, and in taking over the GOP. We must stay calm, focused and determined. We must not get into fistfights, shouting matches, name calling, or worse, fall into despair. Just keep moving forward.

Fortunately, Ron Paul supporters are not going to vote for anyone just to get the party elected, so we won't be LOSING people. But they don't understand that and they will do ANYTHING to hold onto the reins of power. IF WE KNOW THIS NOW, maybe we can avoid the days and days of "shocked" and "horrified" reactions to the terrible stories that are going to be released about us.

They think that the fear of "what others think" or being "different" is what motivates us just as it motivates them. They think that the fear of LOSING will overpower us, just as it overpowers them. Our strength is that they haven't a clue what motivates us!

WE ARE RON PAUL. WE ARE THE REVOLUTION. WE ARE WINNING HEARTS AND MINDS FOR THE FUTURE.

So when the proverbial s^%t hits the fan, PLEASE PEOPLE,
Just keep moving forward..... and DONATE to keep Ron Paul moving too!

I believe only the newer

I believe only the newer supporters may be shocked and horrified. It just galvanizes the rest of us. The media and the GOP are suffering the consequences and learning that Force creates counter Force. But the true POWER is with us for we have the POWER of TRUTH on our side...and in this regard they have a distinct disadvantage. They think they have force but we have FORCE of TRUTH...and over time they will lose.

be relentless for truth for persistance is omnipotent

I have had several of these conversations...

And I usually turn it around. The media wants Romney and so do the politicians and the established RNC - that much is obvious. They spend their time, just like our government, trying to shove their will down our throats. But Americans are waking up and coming out in droves for Ron Paul. He gets bigger crowds than anyone else and his supporters are the people and the armed forces.

So my conclusion is that I am going with the man that American's are picking and the armed forces are picking for their president. As far as I can tell the media and the GOP WANT obama to have another term or they would not be putting forward a candidate such as Romney. He was beaten by a candidate that was beaten by Obama... they know he cannot win but are setting us up for another 4 years under Obama.

I personally am not buying it - I am not voting now or ever for the lesser of 2 evils. I am voting for our constitution, our freedoms our liberty and our voice. To vote for anyone else is a vote for the establishment and I think we have had a lifetime to see how that doesn't work out for the people!

Good, now we will have no choice but to win the nomination

RON PAUL 2012

How to inoculate against coming MSM onslaught?

I suggest we take a different approach to the media. It is not that they," ignored and slept through" the great results that Ron Paul has been getting or the campaign events with thousands of people. It is not that they did not understand how little importance the beauty contest votes were or the delegate selection process.

I believe our tactic needs to be exposing the MSM as very intentionally using these tactics. When it became so obvious that Ron Paul was still in the race and wining majorities of delegates, they could no longer afford the ignoring tactic.

I agree whole heartedly with you that we need to get ready for the upcoming onslaught from the MSM. Part of the preparations for this is to use this opportunity of blatant propaganda they have been utilizing the past months, to educate people. Let's expose the bias the MSM has and the tactics that they use now when it is particularly obvious and easy to see. Then people will be less susceptible to their influence when the attacks begin in earnest.

To start, do not refer to the MSM as "sleeping" or "uninformed" or "ignoring" Ron Paul. Instead, point out how the MSM has been working
"relentlessly", "dishonestly" and "with surgical precision" to try and sway public opinion against Paul. They have only recently given him any attention at all as an attempt to minimize damage from being caught trying to shape the news and because of their dips in viewership/advertising revenue.

Any other tactics to inoculate the public against the coming MSM onslaught?

The attitude we must have

I would say

That they are handing it to obama if they don't vote for Ron Paul because there is no way in hell I am voting for anyone else but Ron Paul.

And they think they'll outwit Obama?

Re all the complaints of Ron Paul "stealing" delegates, I heard a commentator note in so many words, "If the Romney campaign managers can't hold their own against the Ron Paul people, it says something about their ability to handle the Obama machine."

I agree as to what we should do.

We knew this was coming. Why

We knew this was coming. Why do you think the DHS labeled us domestic terrorists in their Right Wing Extremism report. Quite frankly (being a newbie to the Ron Paul Revolution (2009) I didn't know what to expect during the primary, but I never thought we would get this far. What a ride it has been. especially in WI with the Recall and the Commies in Madison tearing up the Capital building.

Thanks for the link...Talking about the link he is not a Third party candidate and even if he was since when is that not ok? Our government is clearly out of control.

Regardless RP will be my President in 2013

In my view Ron Paul is the ONLY legitimate canidate. Romney is guilty of financial crimes and Obama is a traitor. If Romney or Obama end up "winning" I will NOT recognise either one as my President. Hopefully RP will remain active in the R3V0LUTION until enough people wake up and then we can take back our country...on our schedule...no need waiting until the next election cycle if the people running our Government are crooks and fraudsters. We impeach and clean house ASAP!

Don't want to burst your bubble, but...

a sleeping bear is far less dangerous, than one that has just woken up!
Power to you all.

Uhhhh....yeah

Thanks "old one".

These are good words. Let's hope many read them.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

When Rush blows

We'll know we are really a threat!!!

Yes, we must brace ourselves for the onslaught

of smears and fraudulent shenanigans. Each of us must arm ourselves with knowledge and logic and educate as a major part of our daily routine.

So, lets practice some responses.

Friend or Family: "A vote for Paul will just wind up as a vote for Obama. He can't win and you're helping him against a candidate who can." (or some equal version)

Us: "You mean all of those Republicans who are so determined to beat Obama at all costs will vote for him? Or stay home? How would you get all the evangelicals who don't like Mormons, all the secular voters who don't trust Mormons, and all those swing voters who don't like Romney for some other reason to vote for him? Paul polls well, and Romney does not, outside the Republican base and the base had better support him or they will have only themselves to blame. They expect me to support Romney if he wins, they need to support Paul if he does."

This argument that he can't win has to be answered in light of his good numbers against Obama, and the fact that the Obama-loving media hates Paul and loves Romney. Remind them that we all decry the media's favoritism for Obama, so why do you let them tell you who can beat him? If they say Fox tells the same thing, ask them why Fox treats Paul the same as CNN. They both know that Romney is weak against Obama, so of course they favor him in their reports. DO NOT tell them you will only vote for Paul. Don't say you'll vote for Mitt if you don't plan to. Just focus on why everyone should vote for Paul. Point out that Mitt has no plans to balance the budget and that he has not promised to quit supporting the terrorist states with foreign aid.

With me it's the MATH that should get them

YOU CANNOT WIN WITH JUST REPUBLICANS.... YOU MUST HAVE INDEPENDENTS AND DEMOCRATS AND RP HAS THEM! So what is their goal? To win... or to hold onto their sacred wars?

Thanks to 2012R3VOLUTION for this breakdown

"Furthermore Romney has absolutely NO chance at beating Obama in November while Ron Paul can bring conservatives, independents, and disenfranchised democrats alike and holds the most active supporter base ever seen!

Just incase you missed it (likely considering the media bias propeganda)

5-2 Ron Paul Speech at Town Hall Cal State Fullerton 4,000+ in attendance

5-3 Ron Paul Speech at Town Hall UC-Davis 8,000+ in attendance

5-4 Ron Paul Speech at Town Hall UC-San Diego 5,000+ in attendance

5-5 Ron Paul Speech at Nevada State Convention And Sweep 1,500+ in attendance

5-6 Ron Paul Sweeps Maine State Convention Delegates 1,500+ in attendance

5-6 Ron Paul Speech Tea Party Express Rally 7,000+ in attendance

Meanwhile Romney Holds 1 Rally and gets a massive 200 supporters to show up.

More media at Mittens Rally than all of Dr. Pauls events combined!!!

You can NOT go against the people! Romney has not BASE, no Campaign (cant even secure delegates in his home state Mass), and the people DO NOT LIKE him!

Do you want Obama to win????

the problem is not their

the problem is not their sacred wars. Both parties/candidates are owned and operated byt he same elites. Big Corporations and big banks. Those who are in office from the county to state to federal level, are all owned by the ruling elite. Right vs left and republican vs democrat is just a smoke screen. All of them are puppets of the elite with a broken string. They get paid to do the elites bidding. The elites are the bilderbergs, trilateral comission, and the CFR. Look at the people on those lists.

It's the normal average "conservatives"

that I was talking about. The Rush listeners who can't seem to follow a logical course of thinking. They are the ones who bow down to the gods of war and will be mad at Ron Paul for "mucking up the works" and "getting Obama reelected"

Yes, but be ready to show that it isn't only students.

I heard a report say thousands of students. People dismiss students, even though young people put Obama in office. We have had students come out in states where Romney won the primary. Older folks aren't impressed by students en masse. As voters, they are considered unreliable. Show how there were voters of all ages.
