Got an interesting call tonight.

Got an interesting phone call tonight...

Caller: Hello Mr. & Mrs XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Caller: I am calling from the Mitt Romney campaign, we were hoping that you could donate a small amount to allow Romney to beat Obama, how does $200 sound?
Me: I'm sorry but I'm for the other guy.
Caller: ===Long Pause=== Oh, you're for Obama?
Me: God No, I am for the other candidate.
Caller: ===A solid 5 second pause of cluelessness===
Me: You know, Ron Paul, the candidate that Romney first needs to beat before going against Obama.
Caller: Oh. ===Click===

My response was

I'd love to but my cesspool doesn't reach that far.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

The best days of our lives...

... I got a call from Citizens United (I think that was the silly name of the PAC). He proceeded to tell me that they are working with Newt Gingrich. I told him to stop right there. "You are working with the wrong guy. Newt is the personification of everything that is wrong and corrupt about Washington. You are also talking to the wrong guy. I'm for the Washington outsiders. To me, Newt's name is like a red rag to a bull." He then check my name against his records and I had to assure him that was "talking to the right guy" in that respect, but if he is trying to sell me on something and he begins by telling me that Newt is working with them, he's talking to the wrong guy. "So, Newt wants me to help him repay his campaign debt and he is using Citizens United for that cause. How stupid do you think we all are?" End of story.

nice

I wish we got live calls - they are always recorded. I remember in 2008 an Obomba person called ... and it was primary time and I gave an earful about Ron Paul ... the guy actually started thinking (maybe for the first time) now that was fun.

Got the call

Gave them hell for my Louisiana brothers and sisters.

Also received the 2012 Presidential Platform Survey again. Anyone else get a second survey this go-round?

Hope it doesn't have anything to do with the way I filled out the first survey. lol

p.s.

... and the NRA hung up on me a few nights ago.

I got a good 90 second rant on that call.

I got hung up on also, how

I got hung up on also, how classy of the Romney Campaign.

I would have (if not busy at the time)

said-

Me - "Hmmm, you say he'll beat Obama, well I like that! What is his position on foreign policy?"

Mittens Rep - "Blah blah blah"

Me - "Oh, so it's kind of what we have now...Ok..how does he feel about marijuana?"

Mitten Rep - "Blah, blah, blah"

Me - "Oh, I see. He's against humans using a God-given plant for medicinal benefits."

And ON AND ON AND ON...I'd have spent 30 minutes talking platform with the guy and then say "Well, Mitt sure seems like a nice guy, but I'm an issues man, and I guess i'm just going to have to go to Tampa and support Ron Paul. Thanks for the information!"

:-)

"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

haha

That's funny. I hope they call me because this will be my response "awe whats wrong, mittens isn't getting enough from goldman sachs?"

Beep beep boop beep... I am a Paulbot... prepare for liberty and prosperity!

How professional?

Hangs up... lol

Don't Be Mean to the Nice Volunteers

The people making these calls could very well be delegates to the convention.

I'm just sayin' ...

Even if they're hired, they're probably elegible to vote, and desperate for money... easily won over to freedom and a better economic climate.

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

Probably thinking crap

Probably thinking crap another Ron Paul supporter.

here is my response to Romney

C:\Users\janet\Pictures\2012-06-01 001

The RNC has called me twice already.

Two different people called. I gave them both the lecture about the RNC breaking Rule # 11 and neither of them knew what I was talking about but they both wanted to know what it was and listened. Told them as far as I am concerned Bush, Obama and Romney are like a set of triplets...I see no difference.Gave the first caller specific examples for my triplet assessment. She actually said, "well you do have a point there." Told them I do not hear Mr. Romney discuss the Federal Reserve EVER and that as far as I am concerned that is the # 1 issue. Told them, Romney doesn't even have a plan. His whole plan is "Obama sucks, so vote for me." Told them Romney never discusses the entitlements that need to be reformed and even Democrats have admitted that needs to happen. Told them Romney wants to grow the military but I have no idea where he plans to get the money to do so. Asked them if they knew where the money would come from? They didn't. Told the second caller Romney is not the nominee as the nominee is "nominated" at the convention and therefore it is not yet possible to have a nominee. He sounded like a young kid. Honestly, I don't think he ever even considered that point. I gave them both a very nice academic lecture and declined to donate.Told them any extra money I have (which is very little) is going to go to Dr. Paul's campaign.

Surprisingly, both were willing to listen and I think both actually learned a little something. Both conversations ended on a cordial note. Many will listen if you have your game face on and are ready to go with your talking points.

I told them I couldn't because of what Romney did to his dog

She said, what about a dog.

You know, when He put it on top of a car and drove the dog from CT to Canada. The dog got sick, and he hosed him down and continued driving.

She said, I did not know that.

I said, yeah, if he does that to his dog, what would he do to people he doesn't care about.

ohionurse for white house press secretary 2012!

Wow. Just wow. To think on the cuff like that and then to turn the tables on the conversation....wow.

You have got some skills. Thank you for your efforts. Extremely well done.

I love the passion and articulation of RP supporters. It is fucking amazing.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Thanks sharkhearted but...

I do think Ben Swann has me beat for this job (although I would love to have it). I am just 30 miles NE of Cincinnati and am so darn proud of Ben Swann I can't stand it:)

Real reality trumps TV reality every time.

Thanks for sharing a way that we can spread liberty, one person at a time.

Plants the seed for the harvest in Tampa.

Great Conversation!

If I ever receive such a call, I'll remember your answers and respond in a like manner. So far I've received a large picture of Mitt in his jeans attire and a membership card to the Mitt Club. Both came with a request for a donation.

Rombama's picture

I've gotten two of those. The picture is a photograph of a quality to be framable. Imagine that......Thinks people will frame and hang his picture? Ahem......have an extra, anyone want to buy a pic of Rombamma in a pr of baggy jeans in front of someone's barn acting as if he belongs there? OK.........dart board anyone? Proceeds go to RP campaign.

I feel left out. I need a new backing for my dartboard.

Free includes debt-free!

Winning

Nice lol:p I wonder how often that happens.

Also, what a complete tool the entire Mitt Romney campaign sounds like right now. "How does $200 sound?" Geeze. Of course Mittens, we all just have loads of benjamin's to fund whatever political campaign we want right? Isn't everyone a millionaire?

Umm. Have you tapped out Goldman Sachs?

cause I think all my money has been going to them.
