Read My Lips: It's called the Alaska Strategy, Stupid!

Shh...

Alaskans know what's up:

"Now, the Paul campaign will attempt to replicate its Alaska success elsewhere in the country."

Don't say the Alaskan GOP didn't warn the rest of the Nation: we're coming for you!

Will Ron Paul's new campaign strategy work? Well, look to Alaska

Ben Anderson | May 14, 2012

2012 Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul ended active campaigning on Monday with his announcement that he would no longer spend money to win votes in states that have yet to hold primaries.

The campaign will continue to lobby to win leadership positions at state conventions and gaining delegates to represent Paul in Florida at the Republican National Convention in August.

Paul's announcement leaves the rest of the primary field wide open for frontrunner Mitt Romney, who already leads in overall votes and delegate counts. Paul's new strategy, though, has already played itself out in Alaska, in unexpected and occasionally controversial ways...

Now, the Paul campaign will attempt to replicate its Alaska success elsewhere in the country.

There is much confusion about what RP staff said vs the media

This is the heart of the biggest problem. The Ron Paul campaign is getting unfairly blamed for the lies being propagated by the decrepit, despicable media.

Daily Paulers, the media is the ultimate enemy to free humanity. Stop attacking Ron Paul, his staff, and each other because of their lies! Psychopaths and morons dominate the political media and you cannot allow yourselves to get distracted by their trickery.

Ron Paul is right. We are right. Keep fighting!

MSM = Public Enemy

MSM = Public Enemy #1
Terrorism ranks about 97th on my list

EXACTLY!

Abso-F'ng-loutely!!!

Day in and day out, a loose guesstimate, but about 90% of non-activism related posts here are mostly about parsing how unfair, how ridiculous, how obnoxiously the MSM absolutely callously LIES about Dr. Paul, about us the R3VOLution/Liberty/Freedom/Patriot Movement, about libertarianism/constitutionalists/anarcho-capitalists, about Austrian School of Econ, every second of the day!

Yet, I swear it's like every time like clockwork, anytime something remotely controversial comes out be it an out of context blurb citing heavily edited comment about the campaign or Dr. Paul, or Rand as was the case ALL day yesterday, many still fall into the trap of actually being nice enough to give the benefit of the doubt to the MSM, but not Dr. Paul's own campaign staff!

It's like how many 'he beats me 'cause he loves me' must one put up with before ASSUMING that EVERYTHING the MSM, corporatists and Govt terrorists put forth should be ASSUMED to be GUILTY until proven innocent?

Not sure if I'm amused, frustrated, horrified, filled with hilarity, or what. I suppose it's probably a combination of all of 'em.

Frankly if we didn't have such a whore pressitute MSM to biatch about, 90% of content here wouldn't exist at all! DP would be a 'lonely' place for many QWERTY-ers!

LOL

Seriously did everyone forget to tell me that today was supposed to be 'make controversy out of nothing'-nonexistent dispute 'dispute'-day?

Now I feel 'left out'!

LOL

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

by the way, you guys do realize that we usually NEVER

get over 500 active log-ons on a Monday night well past 10pm PST, here at DailyPaul, right?

Well, it's around 500 log-ons, NOW!

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Just a stream of Thought from a previous post:

You know, you guys kill me.

Two weeks ago, someone from DP misreads an OBVIOUSLY sarcastic video of Stossel saying "RP's gonna catch on next Tuesday" was blown out of proportion AS IF Doug's last Tuesday's FB chat were gonna be announcing something big.

so ya make expectations on a non-event.

then, all the crazy paranoia over AZ OK weekend.

then, now with this letter.

sure, I suppose they didn't 'need' to let us know that they were switching focus to strictly concentrate on delegate strategy at state conventions. but think folks. is that for OUR benefit, or the MSM & RINOs?

I'd call it a "strategically calculated risk."

We KNOW by now that the ONLY way in which someone is nominated, is AT the GOP state conventions via delegate selection.

Primaries are merely a PR parade to give the sheeple an illusion of a democratic process by feigning constituency participation.

We've played along in the few early states: THEY STOLE them ALL! Period.

For those who keep asking for evidence of fraud? There are plenty. Not gonna list. I've parsed them in the past ad infinitum here. You can search my avatar for related comments if you must. And there are those here who are much more informed than me at the caucus process, who were on the ground with video evidence and accounted blow-by-blow of what happened. Please look those up, if you must.

So, we tried to give them the benefit of the doubt. It didn't work, as we were blocked every step of the way; sure it wasn't entirely due to our enemies. So now, that that's clear, we're gonna do things on OUR terms, with a strategy that has been proven SPECTACULARLY SUCCESSFUL!

You guys to realize that Romney practically LOST EVERY SINGLE STATE CONVENTION except for ND, so far, right?

As in, WE'RE the ones that are actually WINNING when it REALLY COUNTS???

So now that it is COMPLETELY CLEAR that Romney CANNOT lock up anything. Really, does ANYONE here thinks he's got anything remotely close to AP's lying 900-ish numbers? considering the nature of it all, he probably has in reality less than 300 locked up. Now, this RP announcement comes, and the R3VOLutionaries are in disarray?

I mean COME ON people! You should ALL know better than this!!!!

Today's RP press release is merely a documented admission of what we have ALREADY been doing: HYPER-focusing on Delegates! Delegates! Delegates!

What part of that wasn't clear?

ANYONE can become a delegate right regardless of whether it's a primary or a caucus state, right?? SO for those states that haven't done so, please do so!

What is the big hoopla today?? I truly don't get it.

Let me repeat: the ONLY way in which GOP nominates its candidate is AT the CONVENTIONS!

TV ads, campaigning on the ground, if you run the numbers, it's irrelevant and wast of money, especially now at this point, where most RINO neocons WILL NOT be swayed by the Doc's message anyway, we focus on turning out our base, the R3VOLutionaries AT the conventions.

All it takes is a couple of hundred to a couple of thousands at the Convention to turn the tide of history, right?

We're witnessing history even as we speak.

So ask yourselves, how is this any different from what the campaign were focused on in IA, ME, NV, CO, MA, LA, AZ, OK, etc?

Today's announcement literally didn't change a DAMN thing, other than making RINOs and MSM complacent about the level of our threat.

So if the ONLY real outcome is just that: the MSM & RINO reaction, don't you guys think that was the actual goal?

Please R3VOL, think. It's still legal under NDAA.D

Chin up. No long faces.

Check out the visitors numbers on DP. I've NEVER seen it HIGHER on a weekday!

We're WINNING.

But it first requires that you TRULY BELIEVE and KNOW it.

Stop letting negative emotions and doubt take hold. It's only a momentary feeling that you wast wallowing in. Depression is not an action. It's an indulgence. SNAP OUT OF IT!

Now let's embarrass some RINOS this weekend at Minnesota!

Dr. Paul himself will be attending. What more proof do you all need?

Geesh. Some of you truly, truly, kill me. But, do NOT let it get to ya.

Just imagine Dr.Paul WINNING the POTUS. Everything manifested outside, first came from an internal vision.

So envision it folks.

You're living history. We have no choice but to survive and thrive.

But y'all already knew that before getting involved, right?

So high time y'all RE-INTRODUCE yourself, TO yourself, back in April of 2011, when this cycle all began.

We're not enthusiastic about Dr. Paul and the message, for the mere sake of being excited. We're fervent because We BELIEVE it something.

Just remind yourselves of it, occasionally, perhaps like twice a day, from now on.D

Go get'em R3VOL! Still got 3months till Tampa.

The world is about to be in for a rude awakening, come August.

MAKE THAT HISTORY HAPPEN, as planned. We're gonna make a mark, whether the sheeple like it or not.

Wow I almost had tears in my eyes!!

Thank you for the post! I wrote before we have had a lot of traffic here, and the media I have never seen so many Paul articles! I had posted before this means the people who are really behind the campaign will donate more, just to keep him in! this really is a win win win! Media-Money-Liberty! I will be getting pictures from my friend in Tampa today or tomorrow, showing all the billboards and posters and signs of Ron Paul.. Tampa is waiting for us!

ANCAP...Thanks

...that is getting really clear. Consider reposting it tomorrow in a *proper* place so more can read it.

Sometimes we assume online that most people are coming from the same place ...coming from our script. They are not always. I hope you repost this because I believe emphasizing how little time we have left until the convention is paramount...it needs to sink in with all of us.

fonta

you're welcome.

I think my skull cavity is about to fall off from all the side to side headshaking I did reading ENDLESS 'make controversy out of nothing'-comments, today!

LOL

Actually starting all of this 'non-issue' issue started with what Rand said at the IA Faith and Freedom Coalition speech.

Unfortunately it seems that my own dearest fellow DailyPaul R3VOlutionaries chose to only watch the part 2 of the speech where the whole gay marriage issue is cited. How do I know? Because part 2 has 10s of thousands of views, while the part 1 of the video only has less than 500, last time I checked.

Frankly, that's illustrative of a microcosm of psychology/behavior when it comes to seeking out to comment/dispute/debate/rebut 'controversial' videos/topics/blurbs.

Unfortunately, so often it seems that nobody reads anything in full, anymore.

Sometimes I really wonder about the age of some posters.

If I came to the DP for the first time and came on the wrong day, I would think this was a site full of 15yo and probably would not take it seriously. If you are of voting age you should be old enough to get control of your emotions, but some here just can't do it.
