I know what's going on, and you're all wrong.

Ron Paul's aim is to be President of The United States.

Let me ask you all a question. In light of the Jesse Benton email, the campaign statement, and all of the talk about the Ron Paul campaign basically being at and end, how do you think the establishment feels, and how do you think they're going to act? Still don't get it? Let me clue you in....

Right now the establishment is feeling high and mighty, and the other team is feeling like they've won. In fact, what do they really care if some goofy Ron Paul supporters show up and try to cause a ruckus? They're just going to continue to employ the same dirty tactics.... Or hell they can probably just relax a little, Ron Paul and his senior staffers are BASICALLY conceding anyway.... So who cares? Right? Right.....

Meanwhile, Ron Paul is putting his money where it matters- in the state conventions. He's going to continue to gather delegates. Now that he doesn't have to run thousand of dollars worth of tv ads, he probably has money for those pesky little legal battles that NEED to happen over places like OK.

Look. Ron Paul has been in this for almost 40 years. Does ANYONE here REALLY think that this is how he's gonna go out? Like a lamb? Oh but he's "laying the groundwork for future liberty candidates"... Definitely not himself. Right? Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

Dr. Ron Paul is a genius. He knows what he's doing. He's running for The presidency, and ANYONE that thinks otherwise is a FOOL. And what kind of people make up the establishment GOP? FOOLS.

The Doctor is in folks. He has YET begun to fight, and so have we.

For Liberty...

I heard the same story last time

Your theory kept being said throughout Ron Paul's last campaign. I recall the same thing a few months ago. Some said that be shouldn't worry because the real battle was going to be Texas and California and that's what Ron paul was planning all along. How did that work out? Then it was said that it would all come together when it was only Romney and paul. We had visions of a two man debate. How did that work out?

Just tak them at their word. They have conceded and are looking for crumbs. It's hard to accept this but the sooner you do the better you can rethink what we can do to actually win this thing despite the lack of leadership.

Crumby argument

Literally. The Good Doctor is not looking for scraps, and he knows that influencing the Republican Party's "platform" is pointless.

It may be a "Hail Mary", but it's a shot.

I can attest...

That you are correct in that there is a good plan and strategy at play. People need to trust Dr. Paul and his team. Stay together. Keep fighting. This thing is going all the way to Tampa.

August 27, 2012

can't wait

Ron Paul has always said you are an individual

Ron Paul has always said you are an individual. Has not Ron always preached "Individual Responsibility?"

We, I, need to do all that is necessary to complete the mission. The goal is Liberty, Freedom, Individual Accountability.

We, I, need to act accordingly, Like separate "Money Bombs" for the Delegates.

We, I, need to make it happen and let the strategy shift to Ron Paul being in a support position, defending Liberty.

This strategy shift shall give the "Revolution" much more credibility, Gravitas.

Remember the goal! It is Liberty.

“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”

Thanks for the thoughts

I'd like to believe this was true. I have my doubts, but you have convinced me to follow my original plan to donate today. Thanks.

Awesome.

Awesome.

"Truth is treason in the empire of lies".

Nope

I have carefully considered that angle and what I would have done to achieve that end.
And it is definitely completely different to how Jesse did it.
So either Jesse Benton is totally incompetent or he is worse.
Either way get rid of him now.

Jesse Benton has been too soft on Romney since mid January.
And has run a terrible campaign.

Only the Grassroots have kept this going.
And they have been brilliant despite the campaign team.
The delegate strategy has been around a long time.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

I think you should read about the "Shadow" GOP

The news that broke today about Romney and the RNC building up a SHadow GOP to usurp the exisitng GOP that has been taken over by Paul supporters.

Then why have the last three emails

stressed that tomorrow is the final money bomb???

Because the primaries end next month.

I'm not sure about the state conventions, but I'm sure they end next month as well. There's been a moneybomb every month so far. It wouldn't make any sense to have a moneybomb in June when the primaries are all over with. By that time, the delegates will be in the bag and everything will depend on the national convention in August. If Dr. Paul wins in Tampa, the RNC will pour tens of millions into Dr. Paul's campaign in order to defeat Obama.

Do you really think all the donations come in on money bomb days

I give on a regular basis so money bombs don't show that. I don't care what Ron Does with my money I hope he takes his wife to dinner with it or buys himself a new tie. I hope he keeps building the campaign for liberty which I also donated to for the 4 years when everyone else seems to go back to sleep. I hope he builds a Ron Paul college that I can send my kids to. I hope he starts a national news network. There is no such thing as Ron Paul getting too much money and there is no such thing as a wasted money when it comes to Ron Paul. If someone thinks giving Ron Paul money could ever be a waste I would like to hear their ideas on where else would be a better place to put it? How many other candidates built anything like the campaign for liberty movement after losing a presidential election? How many other candidates have built a Youth for Liberty movement after losing a campaign for president? Do you really think Ron Paul will not continue with these efforts after this campaign? He will not be running for congress and he will probably not run for president again but I bet he doesn't stop fighting after its all said and done. I would say many, even on this web site, will not be around in two years they will be back to the football game politics of voting for the one the TV tells them will be the most likely to win, The lesser of two evils, and Reality and Sport TV watching. Don't worry, some of us will keep the lights on for you so you have a place to run back to when your liberties are slipping through your fingers. Nah; I trust Ron Paul with my money. If I didn't I wouldn't be supporting him to be my president. I feel just like Ron Paul, winning the election is important but if we don't win there is still a lot more to be done and someone has to be trusted to do it. I nominate Ron Paul to be the man that holds my flag and my money. This is a movement people that happens to be involved in a campaign for president. We also are involved in a huge number of other campaigns for other offices in probably ever state in this country. We are also in the middle of winning many Republican state committee positions. We are fighting all kinds of bad pieces of legislation every second of every day. It would shock most people how much bad legislation we have held up. We are educating people all over "the WORLD" (That's right the WORLD). If you think giving this man your donations is a waist of your money then I don't know who you would ever give money too. It boggles the mind to even imagine anyone else worth give money to in today's world. As for me and my house:

We will serve the Lord with all our heart, soul, and mind (the first great Commandment)

We will support "Liberty" with our donations (which ties both of these two great commandments together) ["Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty"]

We will love our neighbors as ourselves (the second great Commandment)

Maybe...

Perhaps they are aware that people are being squeezed too much out of cash for every money bomb and are reaching their donation limits.

Perhaps they have completely changed their funding strategy and are going to spend much more conservatively, on a set limit of funds over a long period of time.

Perhaps they want us to know that we SHOULD NOT RELY ONLY on the campaign to do the work that needs to be done.

Perhaps they want US to change OUR behaviour and adapt our approach accordingly.

Perhaps they want you to donate as much as you deem fit and leave the rest to your own discretion, so that YOU can use those funds for the campaign.

Perhaps, in a stroke of brilliance, they want US to remember what we and Ron Paul stand for: limited government, freedom to the people. WE have to shape the road, take over from the campaign and make it happen. This is grassroots as it should be.

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.

I would love this so much. I'd like

some verification, however, that the money is indeed being put toward the state conventions. I know Ron Paul will be speaking in Minnesota and Texas, but can someone confirm that they will be sending parliamentarians or someone else from the campaign to help out the delegates. Yes, it is a grassroots process, but I've heard Ron Paul still has about $2 million in the bank, and he'll probably be getting another good chunk with the Money Bomb. Any information would be awesome. I'm not trying to be negative, by the way, but it would just give me more peace of mind to know that they're still actually spending the money we've given them :)

Let's See What He Says At The Minnesota Convention

He may let all the wind out of your sails or he may not. He's been off the radar for a bit so I'm guessing he'll likely have a bundle to say in MN. Should be telling.

Wow

Yet another completely idealistic post supposing that there is some master plan to "steal" the nod from Romney. What a joke. Everyone here who is proposing things like this are not living in reality. The campaign is NOT going to support a take over of the convention in Tampa. Where are you guys getting this stuff from?

go ahead

and put your head back in the sand.. or in Obamney's rear! same thing.

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

It doesn't matter if the

It doesn't matter if the campaign supports it or not, its about the collective whole, not a hierarchy. Our job is to try our best to get Dr. Paul elected, and our job is far from done.

Well aren't we

a negative nancy...judging by your posts, you complain a lot.

Stay positive! A LOT can, and probably will, happen before the convention.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

They come from trust.

There are times on the road when you simply do not have concrete information to make realistic conclusions. Sure, you can say that everything we are proposing are not in reality because no one has said so, but we can equally say the same to you. Who in the past week has said that they're not supporting a take over of Tampa specifically?

I cannot ever claim to know everything, but I can know that I do not know everything. And many times, the stuff that I know I do not know are the game changers:

|<--------What I know I know-------->??
|<-----What I know----->|<----What I don't know---->|

so if I base all my decisions on ONLY the things I know, I may very well come out for the worse. Sometimes you have to simply trust the people with that knowledge, and in this case it's Ron Paul.

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.

I can't wait to watch Dr. Paul

tear Obama a new a-hole in debates. In hindsight it is so funny to think that just a couple days ago I questioned Dr. Paul's decisions...hahaha what the hell do I know about running a presidential campaign!I know what I am able to do for the movement, and that is what I do. He is riding this tidal wave...we are the water

Enonesoch

Also

it let the states to still conduct primaries know why the Ron Paul campaign isn't spending money on adds in their state. Ron Paul stated "I will not spend money the campaign doesn't have."

Ok, I am beginning to see this, BUT...

What Jesse said about a deal with Romney really sticks me. Help me out with that...

And THAT could go either way

So, Romney would not make a deal to his DIS advantage. Right?
