Ron Paul Campaign has $3.3M on hand: What's in store for the convention?

As we are closing in on the Republican National Convention, it seems as if the Ron Paul Campaign has conjured up a plan to once again shock the nation. Few acknowledge that fact Mitt Romney has not even been formally nominated, let alone the fact that Ron Paul is still actively campaigning for the nomination. However, the official campaign of Ron Paul and a small Paul supporting grassroots group named LAWYERS FOR RON PAUL are effectively working above the fray in order to make the biggest impact this August. The Ron Paul campaign has not stopped and has something up it's sleeves come this August.

Ron is a thrifty guy.

He will use the money for his run against Obama.

NEVER

Three words

Campaign for Liberty...

"No army can stop an idea whose time has come"

Yep...

...that will be the final MIRRORING of what the campaign did four years ago. In that case (and likely in this one also soon) they stopped spending money to support any kind of presidential effort well short of the end in order to shuffle millions over to a PAC run by questionable characters.

Again, the sad truth (and I know it hurts) is that people like Benton, Olson and Tate were NEVER "in it to win it."

"Truth is an absolute defense to the charge of paranoia."

Olson

Is the neocon inflitrator. Of course he wants Paul to lose. Its what he was sent to do. Apparently he has a connection with Rand. So the revolution/libert movement has been co-opted.

Another person why is in denial. LOL

Ron Paul is too honest for that and he has proved it for decades

He doesn't even take the congressional retirement plan. Be assured he will be in a very active role for liberty movement no matter what. Oh, by the way, welcome to the daily Paul, you have much to learn here grasshopper.

Why not more rallies?

Even if he doesn't get nominated, it would be nice to keep spreading the word of freedom through his rallies. Seems we had alot of momentum going there, and wouldn't it be something if he could start filling stadiums.

I mean, screw our government and form our own.

If we could advertise his rallies, invite friends, etc, it would be great.

Would be nice if decades from now, thousands of us can say we saw the great Ron Paul in person. The greatest statesman of our time.

I Think He stopped

Mostly because school was out and all the kids went home from college to bombard their families with newly learned Ron Paul info! Hope so anyway.

skippy

Agreed, it would be great if

Ron Paul along with Judge Napolitano, Peter Schiff, Ben Swann, Doug Wead, Lew Rockwell, and others in the Liberty movement could continue making speeches in front of masses around the States, and maybe have international tours?

A WIN. WE WILL WIN!!!

My guess

this may be dumb, but why not target all of the non-RP delegates to the national convention when they get to Tampa? Having never been a National Delegate (until now!) I have no idea on what type of flyers, brochures, etc to expect.
How many delegates are there? Why not buy them all dinner and have the good doctor speak to them? How many delegates have never even listened to RP more than 1 minute at a time during the "debates"? They just know he's crazy and hates Israel from the MSM.
Hey, that's not a bad idea.
I have no idea what type of bribery will be headed my way in Tampa, but I can't wait to find out! There's nothing...NOTHING that I can be offered to sway my vote. I'm guessing most RP delegates feel the same way, but I don't think people are excited about Willard.

There was a post some time

There was a post some time ago floating around here aimed at doing just this. Wasn't dumb then and is not dumb now.

Jefferson's picture

It's not a

dumb idea. I donated to use those resources for a WIN, not to eventually give it to C4L.

I would LOVE to see Tampa plastered with anti-Romnney messages. I hope the "non-Paul" delegates aren't able to travel 50 feet without seeing some message that hopefully makes them think twice about what they're about to do.

"Just say NO to Obamney"
"Don't get fooled again"
etc.

I saw a headline on RP's site a few months ago that had the headline "Adapt or Die" which was a message to the GOP.

We need to "Refine or Die" when it comes to Tampa. Give it to them short and sweet.

Not dumb at all

Adam Kokesh recommended doing exactly that (appealing to all the delegates).

A Wise Purchase

Perhaps some Blackwater-style security/protection for the Ron Paul delegates (or what's left of them) while they're in Tampa...those nice young men in their cool black suits will be doing more than passing out complimentary copies of the "Book of Mormon" - no more broken fingers of dislocated hips...PROTECT THE DELEGATES (and don't drink any of Jeb Bush's famous vote-switching Kool-Aid).

Be seeing you.

Just a Guess!

Didn't Romney form a shadow Republican Party in Nevada? Can't we have a shadow nominating convention in Tampa?

Sure, RP can be the President

Sure, RP can be the President of a shadow country.

U.S.A. is a shadow

The United States of America is a shadow of the country it used to be.

Yeah

and sadly, a very small shadow at that!

Can delegates be bought? I'm just asking the quesion.

Is it against some law for a campaign to do this?:

Defray some of the cost of these delegate's travel expenses, and ask that they think about voting for Ron Paul. We may start a biding war with Romney, but who cares at this point. We need more delegates.

$2,000 X 1100 = $2.2M

That would still leave us with $1.1M. I'm just thinking outside the box here.

They're republicans

They're republicans, and they already believe a lie (Mittens)...
So, I would say "YES", they sure can be bought.
Legally?, I don't know.
Sometimes it's easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission, Right?

maybe we could buy them some

maybe we could buy them some subs and chips

*roll eyes*

End The Fed!
