Any rumors of any hard-hitting ads before TX and CA?

Just curious. If you hear anything is about to happen with regard to taking on Romney, please post it here. I don't care if they are ads coming from the campaign, or a PAC, it MUST be done, and it is absolutely crucial.

Let's cut to the chase here...

For some reason, we have decided not to attack the frontrunner.

You draw from that whatever you will...

The proof is in the pudding.

Bring out the big Guns!

Push hard for a big showing now!

California is Wired

First thing this morning, I copied several people on Carol Paul's interview with Tom Woods:

http://s2.dailypaul.com/232519/tom-woods-interview-with-caro...

(I think this was the first of several postings.)

Should be front page.

This is the kind of interview people who like it will e-mail to people they know will also like it. This would boost the female vote, too.

Be sure to send it to your grandmother.

Radio Ads

I wish there were some radio ads for Paul in CA. Registration deadline is May 21st. People here are suprised to find out he still running when they see our tabling events.

He doesn't need to attack Romney. Just report he's still in the race and won Maine, Nevada and after the delegates are counted is likely to win more states. 15 second radio ads should not be outrageous. Got to hit talk radio during drive time.

Even gingrich was on the radio with fundraising ads earlier in the campaign.

Six candidates are on the CA ballot including Roemer and Karger.
Only Paul and Romney filed delegate slates.

Yea...how much would 15-minute spots cost in just the

...largest markets...$100K...maybe?

"Truth is an absolute defense to the charge of paranoia."

And he's having trouble

And he's having trouble raising $650,000 in 2 weeks, so in doing the math, you see the problem. We need millions to run any consistent ads like this. $650,000 probably barely keeps campaign offices open and maybe pay for delegate organization, or a trip or 2 for Paul.

Dear Ron Paul/ Ron Paul

Dear Ron Paul/ Ron Paul campaign staff (hopefully someone important reads through this site),

I live in California and have attended 3 events; the luncheon in SF, the rally at Berkeley, and the rally at UC Davis. I have spent the last several months of my life devoted to the cause of liberty. Every day I do some form of Ron Paul activism at the expense of a job and expense of my social life (although Ron Paul people are awesome to hang out with). I spend my days at booths in malls, handing out thousands of super brochures in crowded areas, setting up weekly sign bombs over the freeway, going store to store talking to the workers about Ron Paul, handing out hundreds of bumper stickers, standing in from of farmers markets every week, decorating my car with giant magnets and several bumper stickers, always wearing Ron Paul t-shirts or bumper stickers, placing stickers places, putting up homemade signs on telephone polls on busy roads, doing freedom walks (walking miles with signs and flags and brochures), spending all my home time on the daily paul, reading your books, or other articles, and most of all have donated more money than I have (I'm in college and borrowed money from my parents just to donate).

As a result of this, please don't quit and please help us defeat Mitt Romney. I debate with potential supporters every day!

LETS ATTACK MITT ROMNEY! I say we go all out and run commercials and ads in TX and California bashing Mitt Romney and bashing Obama. That will send the message.

Let's create a petition for Ron Paul pleading him to go on the offensive.

Then in the meantime, he should continue giving speeches in California and TX. These are must win states.

Wow your efforts are awesome

Wow your efforts are awesome - thank you! But to attack Romney or run any ads we need way more MONEY.

If I were him, I would reply

If I were him, I would reply

"Why do you think I am asking for money? I asked for $2.5 million a MONTH ago and you got me a little over $1.5 million. Do you have ANY idea how much it costs to run ads in decent time slots on decent channels? If I were to run ads right now, that is ALL I could do. Not very effective."

Yours in Liberty,
Ron Paul.

Inspirational!

Thanks for posting that!

We need Texas and/or California

and not just for the delegates either, to quell the perception that we are stealing this election.

Steve it is obvious how hard you are pushing for Texas and California and it is appreciated. Sadly I don't have any answers aside from maybe the campaign has resigned themselves to the fact that we can't win a state because of the vote rigging.

I think if we can get the Ballot affidavit initiative off the ground in these two states it might motivate the campaign to spend some money in Texas if they think the votes are going to be counted. I I have been trying for the past two weeks to get people on the same page with these affidavits and every time it starts to pick up steam some idiot begins suggesting this is an attempt to hijack the vote verification process (curious considering this is the only method of vote verification, and certainly the only one that actually leaves a paper trail.

Anywho, if you need my help with your efforts I am available and will do my best to help out.

Keep caring Steve

They tried to bury us, they didn't know we were seeds. -mexican proverb

OR perhaps with money tight,

OR perhaps with money tight, he is not going to spend much on a state that even BEFORE Santorum dropped out, Romney already was leading Paul by FORTY points. So there is ZERO chance of winning, and therefore spending any more money than he already has is just plain stupid. And that fact that since he is FROM Texas..he knows what he views of the voters are there and knows he can't win that either.

I have a newsflash for you...All of your brains put together have about 1% of the intelligence of Ron Paul and his campaign staff in terms of how to run an election with limited funds.

lighten up tough guy

Seriously, we need to start showing some more respect to one another around here. The insults and harsh tone is unwarranted especially if you consider the purpose of this site is to promote discourse and the exchange of ideas. Would the campaign exist if not for the generosity and enthusiasm of the supporters? Would there be enthusiastic supporters if the exchange of ideas was prohibited? The successes of this campaign has as much to do with the hard work of his supporters as it does with Ron Paul and he will tell you the same w out batting an eye. Ron Paul has called this an intellectual revolution because we are not closed to new ideas, so just remember that when your calling people stupid and telling them to fall in line when they are trying to help out.

They tried to bury us, they didn't know we were seeds. -mexican proverb

Thanks, Ed....

...yea, the best ideas always seem to draw out people who seem set on non-verification and hoping for a brokered convention as our Plan A, Plan B, .....Plan Z...with no other plan.

Thanks back at ya,

Taking on Romney would help Romney

Our message, Ron Paul's message is what we need to get out.

People are tired of "attack ads".. it's a turn off. I don't pay attention to menda, but I pay attention to people, many who are consumed by media, and they HATE attack ads.. so why would we go there, beiung that's not Ron Paul's style.

Campaign really has a buge job TRAINING people to become delegates.

Attacks Ad's Vs Truthful Ad's

I think you are confusing an attack ad which is mean spirited and focuses on issues not pertinent to the election, with a truthful ad that focuses on a candidates voting record. If the latter seems mean spirited, it is not due to the nature of the ad. Rather it is due the vile reality of the candidates voting record.

They tried to bury us, they didn't know we were seeds. -mexican proverb

Yes. I probably am confusing them since I don't watch TV

I think it would be a waste if money and time.

We have a real fight happening inside the GOP, MSM is not going to give us a break and publish anything that would help us.

We need to focus on getting delegates.

Those people watching TV are not sure if they want Obama or Romney, or don't care... they are the least of our worries.

We are facing the enemy (as many Republicans have joined us) and it's not a TV camera (could be the man behind it). I think we need to focus on supporting those who dared to join the GOP, get on a committee, become a delegate, learned Roberts Rules of Order, and are fighting neocons face to face in their towns/cities.

It's the bigger story. When Romney/MSM want a debate, they will let us know, and Ron Paul will give them a great one. They are like an elephant in the living room, and we are like pirranhna. Let us dine in peace and be happy.

If you are not a Republican, on a central committee, a delegate, I can understand how you must want something like a TV commerical.. you're missing out on the real action.

I don't watch tv either

with the exception of some silly Cat in the Hat cartoon w my kids in the morning. Apart from that I don't bother, especially with the news. The only time I get to see a political ad is on YouTube.

Would be nice to win a state...In fact I think it is imperative if we want to avoid a riot at the convention.

Ron Paul called...

...Santorum "a phony" on national T.V. while sitting three feet away from him. Six weeks later, he dropped out.

"Truth is an absolute defense to the charge of paranoia."

Santorum dropping out had

Santorum dropping out had NOTHING to do with anything Ron Paul said to him at a debate. It was ALL about him being about to lose Pennsylvania to Romney.

Look StevieBoy...you have been a funny little pre-teen. Saying lots of cutesy little things that are so funny coming from a little boy like you...but even you can't be that stupid.

No...you're right...

...I COULD be you.

So recent a Daily Paul registrant. 1 day, 3 hrs.

So eager to flame. Makes me wonder what your intent is here. Is it to stir up fights and bad feelings?

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Florida

Remember him attacking Gingrich on raiding Social Security, he fell, then Santorum rose

Endorse liberty

Is a superpac that runs Ron Paul ads, you can see that donations to it have plummeted. It also gives you an idea of what kind of funds are needed to run ads.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0312/74241.html

An idea

Instead of concentrating on what's not being done due to lack of campaign funds, how bout what we could do in those states on a grassroots level. If you live in TX or CA, you can put a sign in your yard, along the road. Find a festival, or perhaps a gun show and set up a Ron Paul booth. Go to legal marijuana stores and ask to put Ron Paul info there. IDK - open to ideas!

Grsassroots alone is not

Grsassroots alone is not going to win ANY state, let alone ones in which Ron Paul currently trails by 30 points or more.
