My Beloved R3VOL: You Guys Kill Me!

Two weeks ago, someone here at DailyPaul misread an obviously sarcastic video of John Stossel, then proceeded to blow it way out of proportion, compounding it with another unsubstantiated expectation of an unannounced, announcement at Doug's last Tuesday's FaceBook live-chat.

What ensued was some of y'all making expectations based on a non-event.

Then, came being worked up over NOT watching both part 1 and 2 of Rand's rather informative speech at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition. How do I know? Because his only 'controversial' portion of the speech, aka "Part 2" of the video had 10's of thousands of views, whereas "Part 1" only had 100's of views. It's clear how and which video various sites and bloggers directed people to view.

Then, all the sudden descending of the most massive amount of troll attacks in one weekend I've ever witnessed. Signaling that our delegate strategy was being taken as a much more clear and present danger to the RINOs, not to mention, all the craziness exhibited strictly by the RINOS at the AZ and OK State Conventions over the weekend. Along with the predictable paranoia that ensued, which to a certain extent was justified, though in the aggregate, never too good.

Then, closing out the trifecta, now comes the official campaign news release, clarifying our intentions.

Sure, certainly I suppose the official RP2012 campaign did not 'need' to let us know that they were switching their focus to strictly concentrating on the delegate strategy at state conventions.

But please, think folks. Think.

Do y'all suppose that, that was 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 the delegate process.

By now, we already know and accept the reality (well, hopefully most of you, by now) that the Primaries are merely a PR parade to give the sheeple an illusion of a democratic process by feigning constituency participation.

We've played along with the thieving RINOs in the few early primary and caucus states: they stole them all! PERIOD!

If you dispute that, please STOP living in denial!

For those who keep asking for evidence of fraud? There are plenty.

I'm not gonna list them all here. I've parsed them in the past here at DP, ad infinitum. 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 recording video and accounted blow-by-blow of what transpired at those early primaries/caucuses.

Please look those up, if you must.

So, we tried to give the Ruling Class and their pliant RINOs the benefit of the doubt.

It didn't work. In fact, it was never meant to, probably.

Not that I have to recount the last 5~6 months for y'all, but we were clearly blocked every step of the way, from utter MSM blackout, shifting around voting locations, holding a separate one solely for Likudniks as were the case with Sheldon Adelson's private caucus, which we also 'took over!' .oD

And sure, part of the reason for some of the difficulties weren't solely attributed to our enemies efforts. We're only human, and none of us are perfect, nor are Dr. Paul's staff.

Here we are, post-RINO manipulated primaries/caucuses.

Now all their shenanigans and utterly despicable aims had been made abundantly clear and laid bare, it's simply time that we put them on notice, not so bluntly, that we're gonna do things on OUR terms, right here, right now, with a strategy that has been proven spectacularly successful!

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

Let me repeat that: Mitt Romney practically LOST EVERY SINGLE STATE CONVENTION except for ND, so far!

As in, we ARE the ones who are actually
winning, when and where it REALLY COUNTS???

So, it is abundantly clear that Romney cannot lock up anything before Tampa in very real terms. Really, does anyone here still think that Mittens has got anything remotely close to the serial liar ASSociated Press' deceitful 900-ish delegate count?

Considering the nature of it all, I'd proffer that Mutt Wrongney probably has, in reality, less than 300 delegates out of the 1144 needed, 'locked up.'

Now, today's Dr. Paul's announcement comes out, and my R3VOLutionaries fall into disarray?

What's going on here?

How is ANY of what Dr. Paul's campaign staff released, come as 'news?'

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??

As far as I understand, anyone can become a delegate regardless of whether it's a primary or a caucus state, right?

So, in those states that haven't had their delegate process commence, please do so!

So, just what in God's grace is all the big hoopla today over?

I truly don't get it.

Allow me to repeat: the only way in which GOP nominates its national delegates who will be picking the eventual POTUS nominee, can only be done at the State Conventions!

Dollars spent on TV ads, FRN's spent pursuing on-the-fence-RINOs at this point may not be all too smart or practical.

Dollar for dollar, it is true, we have spent the most per delegate of any of the campaign, other than GoldmanSUX Flip Obmaney.

So, if you run the numbers, all that effort chasing after votes that may not exist at this point is probably irrelevant, but certainly a waste of our campaign's very limited resources.

Besides especially now, I personally believe that no RINO neoCon, whom after like 20+ debates this season, is gonna be swayed by the Doc's message anyway. So, it is much more prudent that we focus on turning out our base, the R3VOLutionaries, to turn out in massive numbers at the various respective State Conventions.

As we've all undeniably witnessed in Nevada and Maine, all it really takes is only a couple of hundred to a couple of thousands of informed R3VOL to attend the State Conventions to turn the tide of history, right?

We do not need millions of primary/caucus beauty pageant votes to win anything!

We're witnessing history, and those of you who are participating at convention levels are making history, even as we speak!

So ask yourselves this: how is what the campaign released today in regards to changing strategy to concentrate strictly on the delegates, now, any different from what the campaign were ALREADY focused on doing at IA, CO, WA, MN, MA, ME, NV, 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, here's the million dollar question for y'all who are pondering the reason behind the timing and the specific wording within the release, if the only real outcome is just that: the MSM & RINOs' confused reaction, don't you guys think that was the actual, originally intended goal, to begin with?

We're not the ones the campaign were expecting to respond like this!


Sometimes, I think for all the times that we complain (I myself included) about how the official RP2012 campaign and Benton are running things, perhaps they're giving us too much credit!

So, my dearest R3VOL, please take a pause and think. It's still legal under NDAA.D I think...er... I'm still right, right?

As our Gray Champion is so oft fond of saying: No Long Faces!

Chins up, Chest high!

Not to be complacent, but if you gauge all the state conventions so far, there is no denying it: We ARE the Ones who're really WINNING!

Plus, on a side note, check out the visitor numbers on DP. I've NEVER seen it HIGHER on a weekday, well past 10pm PST; we had over 500+ log-ons, on a Monday! That's a HUGE improvement! There is no sign that the R3VOLution isn't on the March!


But first, it does require that you truly believe it, and know it!

Stop letting negative emotions and doubt take hold.

Those negative downers are only temporary, momentary feelings whose only purpose is for you to waste time wallowing in.

Depression, is not an action. It's an indulgence.


Now let's embarrass some RINOs this weekend at Minnesota, shall we? Dr. Paul himself will be attending. I mean, what more proof do y'all need to know that Dr. Paul is in it to WIN it?

Geesh. Some of you truly, truly, kill me. But, don't kill yourselves, either! LOL

You know, everything we see physically manifested in our world today, all started with just one spark. One spark of idea.

That's all it took: a single momentary thought.

So why not make that reality work for us?

Just specifically envision Dr.Paul winning the Presidency, and sitting behind the desk at the Oval Office.

So, envision that, folks.

You are living history.

We have no choice but to survive and thrive.

But y'all already knew that before getting involved with the R3VOLution, right? Unless we have President Paul, it's NDAA policestate at home, and WWIII abroad starting with Syria, then Iran.

So high time y'all re-introduced yourself, to yourselves, back around April2011, when this Pres. Election cycle all began, or perhaps earlier, or whenever it was that you decided having your Natural Rights ensured and restored was all worth it, and worth fighting for.

We're not enthusiastic about Dr. Paul and the message, for the mere sake of being excited. We're fervent because we truly believe in something.

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

Now, we only have 3 months till Tampa, and 5 months and change till November.

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

Now, make sure that history happens, as we planned.

We're gonna make a mark, whether the sheeple like it or not. We're not here to just win an election. We are here to change the path of our own destiny.

What's a misunderstood campaign press release, compared to that priority??

Go Get'em R3VOL!

People really need to read between the lines and truly stay informed because as long as we keep on moving forward there will be no stopping us from turning the Convention in Tampa on it's head and getting the nomination.

Benton stated himself in his most recent that "hundreds of Romneys delegates are Ron Paul supporters". Did you get that? Hundreds! Couple that with:
And the fact that Romney has about 1/3 (312) the delegates the MSM states actually he actually has secured.

The upcoming State Conventions are going to be the focus of the campaign all we have to do is show up and outnumber/out maneuver/ outlast them!

Never leave the convention building until everything is settled and video/record all proceedings.

Read my tagline.

Love back at you AnCap -- and to all the

r3VOLutionaries. Now back to work with AnCap's strong, positive message held firmly in our psyches, along with Dr. Paul's inspirational example; no matter what grey days may come, remember the r3VOLution is just getting started!

Thank you. And you're very welcome.

There seems to be a lot of obviously conflicting messages and our various interpretations of what seems like mixed signals from the campaign.

But, like all things in life, at the end of the day, I'm reminded that the only person that I truly have full control over and are able to make lasting changes in, is myself.

It literally takes the same amount of time and energy to indulge/express/act on the good things, equally as negative things.

Moi? Guilty as charged on the latter, unfortunately sometimes more than I'd like.D

But seeing as how DailyPaul is a veritable pond where ripples are made and can be spread, hopefully more positive ripples propagate than the neg.

R3VOL in each respective states are working and participating tremendously hard. I thank you all. It is within our grasp!

With or without the official campaign's blessings on various aspects, as long as we respect and represent the Doc and the principles he's fought for so long to the best of our abilities, I'd say forge on! See through it all, till Tampa, and beyond.

Make your own Destiny! BECOME your destiny!

Forge on R3VOL!

Thanks AnCapMercenary!

Who Decides?

Who decides who wins? We do.

It's a turning point in history that has been a long time coming, that's for sure.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Shift is clear

Excellent post to help us all keep perspective and agree completely, the campaign knows exactly what it is doing. While the announcements from Dr. Paul, Jesse Benton and Doug Wead make clear that the strategy of winning delegates will continue, it is also understandable why so many were discouraged by the language.

Having spent time on both sides of the news cycle in both public relations and newspaper editing, it is evident that the wording from the campaign emphasized the liberty movement and influencing the platform, not the bid for president.

From the RP email - “We will continue to take leadership positions, win delegates, and carry a strong message to the Republican National Convention that Liberty is the way of the future.”

From Doug Wead’s blog - “The delegate strategy is working. That is the way we will impact the platform in Tampa. That is the way we will begin the process of change.”

And this email from Jesse Benton this morning – “Unfortunately, barring something very unforeseen, our delegate total will not be strong enough to win the nomination. Governor Romney is now within 200 delegates of securing the party’s nod. However, our delegates can still make a major impact at the National Convention and beyond.”

The additional concern over use of past tense already discussed in detail on this forum is not unfounded, as any cub reporter knows from Journalism 101. The opening line of the RP email - “As I reflect on our 2012 Presidential campaign, I am humbled by the supporters who have worked so hard and sacrificed so much” - caused me, as a supporter without my editor’s hat on, to take pause and wonder if it was the beginning of a gentle way to shift the focus of the grassroots movement away from the reason most of us are here: “No one but Paul”.

No, the actual information from the campaign was not really new, but in my opinion the attitude was. Would love to believe it’s all a rope-a-dope, but given the high priority for integrity RP has held throughout this and every other election cycle, this being a stealth strategy seems unlikely.

(Note: For those who, rightly so, check poster profiles for trolls, yes, I just joined today. I rarely post anywhere on the internet, but have been reading the Daily Paul for two years, wrote in RP in 2008, received a RP sweatshirt from my Dem spouse for Christmas, have contributed to numerous money bombs and am a lone voice for the notion of abiding by the Constitution here in the suburbs of NY.)

AnCap hit the nail on the head..and so have you.

It's been a tough haul in NY...maxed-out on my donations, I am exploring new approaches to assist...missed the deadline for primary-Switch-over-voter registration, but keep pluggin' away.

Keep comin' back!

Thanks for the hospitality!

Love the DP community and its unabashed passion for the concept of liberty as our founders envisioned it to be.

Even my twenty-something, Dem child was impressed by the thousands of us watching the conventions on UStream and the 'pizza bomb' - called it a new paradigm.

One can only hope history proves this to be true.

I feel all warm and fuzzy inside now! I love being a part of this movement - it excites me to think about how all of this will go down in history.

When events like this occur,

it is very informative to see the real number of trolls and people working against us that come out.
We see the normal obvious trolls every day, but these more subtle agents of destruction only get obvious when they come out to try to capitalize on big events like this, to try to destroy the morale of the movement.

These people who came out negative on this event are not to be trusted.

Great article. Look out world. Here comes The Revolution!

I agree

this may lead Romney's supporters to not show up to the conventions, us Ron Paul supporters obviously will still show up. But for new people to the game that were going to become delegates, they may not understand and get disheartened and not go to the conventions. We need Ron Paul to clarify this for the people not in the know, or not understanding the strategy. Keep up the great work!!!!
