Pack Your Desk Mr. Benton, You're Fired!

Please everyone get back to work taking over the GOP and helping Ron Paul win the republican nomination. Don't back down, do not fold up, do not quit, do not cry, do not waiver. We will WIN or destroy the GOP trying. This is OUR movement because we finance it, we work it and ultimately, we RUN it.

Now will someone please call security to have Mr Benton escorted OUT OF HERE!!!

All of the exerts spouting off.

Please explain, what would YOU have done? How would YOU have handled this. Keep in mind, as you let us all know how perfectly YOU would have run the campaign, that you don't have access to the other campaign advisers, lawyers or people on the inside and in the know.
How would YOU play out a complicated strategy, whilst trying to depose the very people who planed (and succeeded) in murdering 3000 US citizens, so that they could profit from endless wars?
I'm waiting with baited breath to hear of YOUR brilliance on how YOU would run a Revolution.

Well to start

I wouldn't tell the supporters that I need to become delegates to stay home because there is no chance of winning.

No-One Has Ever Caused So Much Damage.

No-One Has Ever Caused So Much Damage In A Mere 48 Hours.

I have been involved in THE RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION since 2007 almost EVERY DAY.

I have NEVER ASKED ANYONE FOR ANYTHING. I have done it ALL on my own with my own time and what little money I have, as well as the assistance of very kind people:

My friend from Musicians For Ron Paul.

Michael, who kindly bought BOXES of Brochures for Ron Paul Activists.

Dr. K Research.

These are THE GENUINE people who have helped me.

NEVER HAVE I ASKED FOR ONE PENNY FROM THE OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN.

The past 48 Hours have been an ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE: I have not slept. It's 10:00 a.m. in Southern California.

I have been working EVERY MINUTE SINCE THE WEEKEND AT DAMAGE CONTROL: Thank You Very Much!

Thank You Very Much, Mr. Benton For Making Us Work Without Sleep For Days.

If you wanted to make a name for yourself now you have:

Congratulations!

YOU WILL ALWAYS BE KNOWN TO US AS THE ONE SINGLE PERSON WHO CAUSED THE MOST DAMAGE EVER TO Dr. Ron Paul's 2012 Presidential Campaign.

Good luck with your "back-room-deals" behind our backs.

THE GRASSROOTS WENT TO WORK TO REPAIR THE DAMAGE THAT YOU CAUSED.

That's FREE OF CHARGE and That's How We Work.

Me too

Me 1000?

Alot of people have been working and again have been kicked in the teeth by Mr. Benton and the wonderful incompetence of the official campaign.

Here's my latest: http://www.winliberty.com/blog

What the bleep has Mr. Benton done?

Since his first dumbass email yesterday he's totally demoralized EVERYONE with whom I've been in contact.

He's gotta be shut up.

And it would only be decent for Ron Paul to show his face and explain this. He hasn't been seen since Austin.

If a simple email could be so damaging

Us RP supporters must have weak minds indeed. Perhaps we should just go kill ourselves, the world isn't worth living in anyways. I mean, simple words typed on a computerscreen has worldshattering impact, right?

Dude

wake up, it was not a simple email. It was an email sent from the campaign to his supporters which we need to become delegates, essentially telling them their effort and the expense of becoming a delegate will be a futile one because the campaign can not secure enough delegates to win the nomination.

HE IS TELLING PEOPLE TO STAY HOME AND YOU ARE DEFENDING THIS?

It was obviously spin

How many times have we seen Jesse Benton state that the delegate totals were incorrect? TENS OF TIMES, maybe even hundreds. Yet, he's clearly referring to the delegate numbers of the AP.

And Doug Wead, came out a DAY LATER with similar comments. He even stated that we were only hanging on, because of Rand Paul in 2016. I remember numerous instances where Doug Wead has chided the media for not getting it, why we were in this race. Yet, now we have Doug Wead spouting the MSM crap.

Take one step back and get your head out of the sand. People who get overly emotional NEVER could see matters for what it truly is. This is spin, as simple as that.

oh ok

Now I get. We can't win, really means keep up the hard work, we are winning.

Are you serious, a letter from the campaign telling everyone there is no chance of winning is not spin, if that "spin" is going to prevent the campaign from winning delegates. That my friend is either sabotage or ineptitude...or the campaign calling it quits.

No

It's merely feeding the MSM's crap back towards themselves. The email and press release was clearly not meant for us. And if people kept their wits about them, they would have realized it. It's a disgrace that we blew this way over the top. We of all people should have seen the intent of this email and Doug Wead's intent in saying these words. The people over at Romney central must be laughing at us right now.

Thank you...

but it seems your hard work and effort is frowned upon around here. We prefer that you instead fall in line and allow Benton to complete the coup de grace against the campaign and smile while he is doing it.

For Liberty,
Jesse Benton

Frown All You Want.

You are awesome for

You are awesome for everything you do for us, benton could take a few lessons on commitment and hard work from people like you. Seriously, my last comment was sarcasm.

I knew you were being sarcastic :)

It is very healthy to have fun and laugh a little - even if we have to laugh at ourselves from time to time - to keep ourselves amused, energized and in good spirits, because this kind of work is absolutely exhausting on so many levels. When tired and overwhelmed: Retreat, relax, enjoy life's little special moments and then get back here.

We are going to win this if we work every day.

Out to the store...brochures and bumper stickers in hand.

Every time I leave the house.

Hmm, more of this?

Hmm, more of this?

"I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove."

You know,

all of this drama seems a tad too pathetic, don't you think? What are we? A bunch of women? No, I take that back, because it would be an insult to the women. No woman I know has been so prone to be so overly dramatic as I've seen this board do OVER A SIMPLE EMAIL.

This is obviously spin anyways. Doug Wead has been saying similar things in the politico article, yet I've seen nobody attacking him.

Stop the childish overreactions and simply move on. We've got some delegates to recruit.

It's not just the email

its a long string of mistakes, statements, goofs, gaffes and incompetence, this amounting to a painfully heavy last straw for many at a particularly critical time. But you know what forget it. This movement is bigger than him. He won't see another dime out of me. I'm spending it locally and giving to those I trust. Keep on doing what we do best!

Get those delegates!

Then explain to me so that I can understand

WHAT does Mr. Benton do EXCEPT for things like sending out stupid emails?

WHAT one actual bit of actual activism has he EVER done?

Point it out to me.

Why you persist in blaming those who have worked is beyond me.

Some people follow.

I don't.

No one making progress toward liberty follows.

Followers ARE the problem and never can be part of the solution.

Why don't you go follow Mr. Benton?

Let's not be a hypocrite here

Go read the politico article where Doug Wead says similar stuff. NOBODY is attacking him, but in my view there's even more reason to attack Wead than Benton based on that article. I'm no Jesse Benton fan, but all this wanking is seriously getting on my nerves. It's fairly obvious what the campaign is trying to do, but it's a disgrace that WE RP supporters can't even see matters for what it is.

We of all people follow Benton and Wead's words. We of all people should know what they truly think. Yet, despite this, we can't even see that this is obviously spin? Get real.

It would be an insult to women

cause it would be sexist.

That being said, this email, is one of many statements from benton in the past 2 days that is essentially cutting the legs from under the delegate collection process.

His suggestion that we will not win the nomination is going to force the very people we need to be a delegates away from the process.

If you haven't notice becoming a delegate is not easy and not inexpensive.

it's 2 emails in less than 24 hours

let's not slight Mr. Benton by saying it took him 2 days to do all this damage.

Master than he is he did it in under 20 hours.

My thoughts exactly...

Why not just let the momentum continue and let the chips fall where they may. Why raise doubt (at best) and demoralize and cut us off at the kneecaps at worst???

Stupid if you ask me. I know...no one asked. I'm still willing to keep this going but someone has to shut this guy up (Benton) or take his Blackberry, his Laptop and let him lick envelopes or something. Please.

Agree!
