I have a favor to ask youSubmitted by Westfall on Fri, 06/22/2012 - 04:27
I just read a bunch of comments on here bashing Rachel Maddow as part of a conspircy to bash the paul campaign.
Can we stop this damn nonsense? I am asking this as a delegate who is taking time out of my career and going though the expense of going to Tampa (I hope you will contribute to help, btw).
There have been several times in the process of becoming a delegate that I have been truly embarrassed by some of the people in our movement who are absolutely bat-shit crazy. I was at a county convention and someone started going on and on about Illuminati, buildabear or buildaburg, or other such goofy-ass conspiricies. Obviously, this hurts our efforts, and it hurts people trying to grow our movement when we associate with someone and they spew out nonsense.
One of the organizers in our state spammed everyone in on our mailing lists with nonsense about Obama being born in Kenya, and several people were upset and asked to be taking off our mailing lists. Can we please tone down the crazy?? Just a little bit?
Which is more likely? Rachel Maddow and others like her our evil villains who have created a vast anti-paul conspricy? (is anyone else reporting us taking over 4-5 states and half of 6 more?) Or are they just liberals who would otherwise be with us if they just understood economics?
Our enemy is not some faceless conspiracy or a single entity called the MSM, it is ignorance and apathy.
If you are a complete loon, I welcome you into our movement, but if you spew this stuff to others I cannot associate with you. Lets keep the crazy on the DL for the DR :)
