Just received an e-mail from Ron Paul... thoughts?

[ Also posted here: http://www.dailypaul.com/244504/did-you-get-this-where-we-st... ]

Dear James,

Just last week, I sent you an email letting you know my staff would be following up with you shortly to tell you everything you need to know about our plans for the Republican National Convention.

My staff has been busy burning up the phone lines, so many of you may have already heard from them.

But because this email is so important, I wanted it to come directly from me.

For several weeks now, I’ve been up front about the fact that Mitt Romney has obtained enough delegates to secure the Republican nomination.

That fact hasn’t changed - and it’s not going to change.

Over the past few weeks, my staff and I have researched the numbers extensively.

We’ve come to the conclusion that even if by some miracle all delegates to the Republican Convention were unbound, I would receive approximately 300 votes at the National Convention - far short of the 1,144 needed to secure the Republican nomination.

It’s also come to my attention recently that many supporters believe a win at the upcoming Nebraska State Convention this Saturday could be an important step for my campaign’s success in Tampa.

While my campaign is hoping to do as well as possible there, I can’t imagine a scenario where my goals or my plans for our R3VOLUTION in Tampa would change. They are:

*** Ensuring as many of my delegates as possible are credentialed.

There are many folks in the GOP who want my supporters to just shut up and go away, and they have resorted to every dirty trick in the book to game the system at various state conventions. You and I must ensure that as many of my supporters as possible are credentialed at the Republican National Convention.

*** Planting our flag.

Just by seeing a flood of my delegates in Tampa, you and I can respectfully send a loud and clear message that we are the future of the Republican Party. Seeing so many new and young faces at the RNC will show that despite their best efforts to maintain their iron grip over the Republican Party, our liberty movement is the future of the GOP;

*** Affecting the Platform.

By fighting for an internet freedom plank, Audit the Fed, and a plank opposing the indefinite detention of American citizens – and perhaps even opposing the so-called “PATRIOT” Act and undeclared war - you and I can prove we are a growing force in the Republican Party and perhaps convince more GOP elected officials to come our way on these critical issues;

As a National Delegate or Alternate, you’ve invested a lot of your time, talent, and hard-earned money into my campaign and our cause of liberty.

For that I am deeply grateful - and I can’t thank you enough.

I’m looking forward to going to Tampa and celebrating the success of my campaign, and more importantly, our bright future.

So if you haven’t yet done so, please CLICK HERE and register as a delegate or alternate so you can be kept up-to-date on our plans in Tampa.

And if you know of any other delegates in your state, please forward this email to them, as well.

I hope to see you in Tampa.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

That's what I got, too

I didn't get this one that James posted here.

Hey jz, can you do something for me?

Click on the link where it asks you to sign up if you are a delegate.

When it takes you there, can you copy and paste the link right here as a reply to my comment.

Thanks.

Here is the link

I called the Campaign headquaters..

and they gave me the e-mail for Brian Gentry who is heading up the delegate information for the campaign. Here is his response to my e-mail checking on it's validity:

Jim,

It's real.

It was an email Ron Paul sent out earlier today to delegates and alternates about plans for Tampa.

If you see my good friend David Boyer up there in Maine tell him I said hello.

In Liberty,

Brian.

Once again, this comes from Brian Gentry at the RP HQ. Check yourself if you like...

Look at my post below

Compare the brian gentry e-mail you got to the one from Ron Paul. The underlying e-mail address in the code should be the same in both e-mails.

You are wasting your time ...

She is just going to confirm it all to be correct.

She is in on it.

She is a "Lawyer for Ron Paul".

All we can do is add skepticism to the discussion so that real delegates act with caution before putting their names on any lists.

God Bless.

Plus it says,

QUOTE: For several weeks now, I’ve been up front about the fact that Mitt Romney has obtained enough delegates to secure the Republican nomination unquote

This is not true. Ron Paul has NEVER been upfront about this. Instead, he has said, that until the votes are counted, he is NOT going to quit.

As is discussed everywhere on the internet, including Matt Larsen and Ben Swann and many others, NOBODY KNOWS THE ANSWER!

They want the names of delegates so they can convert you to being a Romney supporter--they want to bribe you. They want to pay off your student loans. They want to buy you a new car. Get ready.

His campaign sent it, but not him

They are working hard behind the scenes to make sure nobody comes to Tampa. Ron Paul probably does not even know about this.

What yo are describing would

What yo are describing would make Ron Paul too incompetent to be President. You are saying that Ron Paul can't even control a staff of 10 or so. So how can he control the thousands of people in government?

Don't bet that it came from the campaign.

Letterhead can be easily faked. The wording alone is enough to signal that it came from the outside. They must be really worried about Tampa and that's good news for us.

Why is there a 10 minute new troll popping up on this thread? They must be really worried.

You DO know what your mom's biggest regret is, don't you? IT is that she didn't shove the hanger up her cunt far enough to scrape ALL of you out of her. She says thankfully, that will be remedied after the Convention when yo kill yourself in despair.

She DESPERATELY wants to stop supporting her adult child with no job.

AWWWWWWWW PROJECTION?

Awwwwwwww did your mom tell you that and that is why you are projecting your venom here.

Sincerely .........get yourself some psychological help.

Bless you and know that god loves you and so do some of us here. We just do not like your behavior. It is inappropriate and really unacceptable!

Please ban immediately!

yes

please ban immediately. disgusting.

IT absolutely IS true. You

IT absolutely IS true. You asre just too stubborn and childish to accept what he has been saying.

You see...years ago you realized that you would NEVER be happy in your life. No job. No money. Certainly no woman. So you created an alternate reality to live in in order to stave off suicide for as long as possible

The problem is, Ron Paul doesn't live in your reality.

Oh God! It's our recurring "suicide troll" again!

Ya gotta wonder what kind of sorry life someone must have to keep re-registering here as a troll, just to run around implying that people here should commit suicide.

Talk about "no life".

LOL!
What a dweeb!

So, which insane asylum did you escape from, this time?

They're going to have to strap you down a bit tighter next time.

More trolling for delegates.

When is it ever going to end.

I don't believe this is real.

Especially coming from one of the "Lawyers".

Trolling for delegates.

Trolling for delegates?

It took me all of about 90 seconds to go on Ron Pauls 2012 website and find the eventbrite link.

The same link in the OP that was removed I believe is embedded on Rons official 2012 site.

It's a different link.

I am not sure what you guys are up to, but I have a feeling it is going to be met with limited success.

Most of us are smart, independent, and we have a tinge of paranoia. That all works against your efforts.

Any updates on the "Lawsuit"?

Excuse me rhino but the original poster posted the link in the

comment section.

Right here.

I went over to Ron Pauls official 2012 website to verify that the eventbrite address was legitimate.Something you evidently were not intelligent enough to accomplish. Instead you made a flailing accusation claiming you are smart.

It took me just one click from the front page to find that exact link embedded in the posting of Ron Paul still trying to gather his delegates.

http://www.ronpaul2012.com/2012/07/06/ron-paul-tampa-rally/

"The event will start at 12:00 PM on Sunday, August 26 at the University of South Florida’s Sun Dome.

Come out and show your support for Ron Paul’s message of peace, prosperity, and individual liberty. You can register for your tickets below. If you are a RNC Delegate, please click HERE and register as a Ron Paul delegate. We will be reaching out to delegates soon."

FYI the word HERE ( http://ronpauldelegates.eventbrite.com/ ) in the article on Ron Pauls 2012 page is the link that jz4Maine posted that goes to the eventbrite link.

You failed miserably. But what you did do more important than anything was show how you put your 2C in without doing the slightest bit of research then have the the nerve to make a claim that it's a different link.

Those two links are not the same.

They are made to look the same, but they are not the same.

How is the "Lawyer" lawsuit progressing?

God Bless.

My link and your link from your new post

Or is it visa versa?

Can you tell the difference? No because they are the same thing.

That is the link ...

that came from the supposed campaign letter that was posted here.

The link that is actually on the campaign site to sign up for the Rally is completely different.

The delegate sign up does not have RonPaul2012 in the link name.

The delegate link is a fraud.

A good one, but a fraud, none the less.

I just got this link off the ronpaul2012 campaign webstite

http://ronpauldelegates.eventbrite.com/

Got it here

You do not make any sense.

The plot thickens

The plot thickens and mystery deepens with another "riddle of the 300" email. Thats my new name for these emails now. Maybe it's just me, but this stuff the past few weeks has all been very strange.

"Over the past few weeks, my staff and I have researched the numbers extensively.

We’ve come to the conclusion that even if by some miracle all delegates to the Republican Convention were unbound, I would receive approximately 300 votes at the National Convention - far short of the 1,144 needed to secure the Republican nomination."

Y'all got that? 300 delegates. Now...

"Ensuring as many of my delegates as possible are credentialed. You and I must ensure that as many of my supporters as possible are credentialed at the Republican National Convention.

as many of my 300 delegates as possible, what?

"Just by seeing a flood of my [300] delegates in Tampa, you and I can respectfully send a loud and clear message..."

I know there's alternates and all, but seriously, WHAT????

The writing style does not sound like Ron Paul.

He would not have done it like this. This is someone who ias trying to keep you from going to Tampa. Ron Paul himself has said we will probably have 500+ delegates and I have seen as high as 1000 from well-placed sources. This is the opposition's last shot at keeping us from Tampa. Don't you believe it.

Ron Paul is not a self-centered man. He does not talk about "my campaign" as this letter does. Instead the REAL RON PAUL says, "the campaign for Liberty" or "our campaign".

SequoiaTrees4RonPaul

So...Ron Paul didn't write

So...Ron Paul didn't write this... because he is too incompetent to post a video or send out an email REFUTING it?

If he is that incompetent, then he needs to resign from Congress now because senility has gotten to him. THAT kind of incompetence suggests that he will likely be dead in a year or so.

Always so sad when age catches up to people

Ron Paul is in Better Shape Than You

I bet!

With age comes wisdom. Ron Paul is a wise and honest man....something you are not!

Just go and get the help you so obviously need. And that is sincere.
