Did you get this "Where We Stand" Message from Ron today? Disappointing to say the least!

[Also posted here: http://www.dailypaul.com/244500/just-received-an-e-mail-from... ]

Well hey, this really makes me glad to be a delegate - NOT! AND, I'm also on the Platform Committee. BOY, am I & my fellow RP Committee people going to kick some butt. Funny thing though, I've asked & asked to know who is RP on that Platform Cmte & I haven't gotten one response. Is the campaign even helping us identify each other? Do we have to do that, too? I got a phone call from the campaign 2 weeks ago, but haven't heard anything since. I even asked Ron, via Carol, which planks he wanted in order of importance & he said to look at Texas' State Platform. Big help..... :0(

Boy, this letter is sure one to get Nebraska all excited & anxious to win! What is Ron & the campaign thinking?????????????

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

Ths is Not RP

He has hinted he has a vast amount more if stealth delegates than 50....he has 250 bound delegates, plus he's won another , what, 5 states that the MSM won't clarify, not including Texas, Masachussets, California etcetera ....believe people! I believe he has a LOT of delegates. And if not? Be vocal. Talk to those who seem like fair minded republicans, heck even talk to the neo-cons, still try and convince people that he is the most conservative nominee! His name could still be in the ballot, or at least enough delegates to unbind and continue to a second vote

Oath of Freedom
for the True north, strong & free!

This is more Benton-Speak

This smacks of counterfeit RP. The "campaign" staff is worried that the RP revolution is gaining steam and fire and is again trying to dampen enthusiasm. If they don't, Romney probably won't be pleased, which doesn't bode well for the sell outs in the RP campaign looking for jobs down the line...

AD in NV

Yes the campaign is trolling for delegates : )

The same link(removed from OP because of some idiocy here)is embedded on Rons official 2012 site.

Took me about 90 seconds to verify the Eventbrite link. Sometimes I think people are slightly retarded here.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

If this number is correct, then it represents Gideon's Army.

An Army of 300 Liberty Minded soldiers that will go into Tampa to spread the message of Liberty & Freedom to the other National Delegates. We shall over come with God's help and win the nomination to save this Country.


anyone that has LISTENED to Ron Paul...I can hardly bring myself to think I need to say this is not from the campaign. Its not even close. Nice try....so stupid. LMAO.


If you guys don't support Dr.

If you guys don't support Dr. Paul, and you think he's a sellout, then please remove yourself from this website and go back to irrelevance. Ron Paul is the single most important American political figure of the past decade, and has fought tirelessly for liberty since before virtually any of you were born. If that means nothing to you, and you're going to verbally accost him for BEING REALISTIC AND ACTUALLY KNOWING HOW THE POLITICAL PROCESS WORKS, then we have absolutely no use for you. Go back to your little underground bunkers and leave Dr. Paul alone, he doesn't need you.

Paul's staffer/fund raiser wrote this letter.

of course this is not paul. but paul is ok with establishment writing and speaking communications on his behalf without his even knowing it - he thinks this is all for his best interest.

crappy email, but that's paul's staff.
but truth is that rp doesn't have a shot at the gop nomination and that has been clear for months.

same fundraiser (tate & co) also wrote this letter as well as past letters for donations, from which tens of millions were raised.

I got the email from last week but did not get this email.


Duplicate post

Please remove this duplicate post. One of these fake email posts is enough in active topics don't you think? Ausscyn, why not do the right thing here and delete?
You realize that this is very likely, if not certainly, a fake email designed to cause negativity and division, so why haven't you deleted it yet?
Your failure to do so speaks volumes.

imo let's stop blaming paul for every not-so-wise thing each and

everyone of you personally does.. he is not Jesus.

Ron Paul didn't write that.

I'm not sure who did write it, it might be someone in Ron Paul's campaign, but it's not Ron Paul himself. I can tell just from the wording that it's not him.

100% fake

It is obvious

Who did the email come from?

Who did the email come from?

the email was sourced

mittromney2012.com sent it!


It's over. The US is gone

the Trans Pacific Partnership is a coup d'état. It is NAFTA on steroids.

The public will never wake up. Just give them beer and last games score. That is all they care about.

But for the one person who may want to learn something here is a link:






This is the second "Fatalist" message I didn't get

While I usually get all others. Remember e-mails that were sold or given to RNC by Olsen or our boob in command of the campaign? This is stinking of PSYOPS by the wording alone. Especially because Ii'm not on that list while on the others. My recommendation is to ignore it.

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

asinine logic. If this was

asinine logic. If this was some conspiracy, then you would have gotten it. Your e-mail was on that list that you claim (with no proof) was stolen by the establishment.

The REALITY is, you are not a delegate and this e-mail went out he THEM.

Are you going to assassinate Ron Paul on August 26 when he says the EXACT same thing and your whole world comes tumbling down? I mean...i KNOW you are going to turn your gun on yourself and end your life...but will you take him out with you?

I didn't get this email either

I always receive Ron's emails, so it makes me wonder where this one came from. The tone doesn't sound like Ron. I'm going to ignore it too.

Now what I really can't handle

is that Ron has given up on the nomination. Why? Even if he had only 2 delegates, he should be encouraging people to fight on. Why give up on the nomination if he's still encouraging people to come to Tampa.

I'm not going to Tampa just to serve on the Platform Cmte.
I'm not going to Tampa to go to the festivals.
I'm not going to Tampa to go to Ron's rally.

The other stuff is just for jollies.

I do it because I believe I posted this first,

I looked at the sidebar & didn't see anything about this email. Then afterwards, the other one came up. My main disappointment is over the lack of organization by the campaign. I don't want to be running around at the last minute trying to get organized. The campaign seems to think that we can do anything. Well so far, all my efforts to organize the platform cmte have come up zero. It was just last week when I posted the e-board of the nat'l platform cmte & got little response. I just asked if anyone knew the people appointed.

So, I feel my remarks are well justified.

Actually, James was about 10 mins. ahead of you. Does it really

matter who was first? You've done a lot of work but, you are not the only one who has. We are all in this together. Can't you bring yourself to get over to the other thread and be a part of helping us get to the bottom of this email?

FYI, someone on that other thread was admonished to get off her high horse. Ausscyn, please don't let that happen to you, too. Both you and the other person have been getting a lot of down votes lately because of it. Not judging you, just trying to help you get past whatever is holding you back.

"I just asked if anyone knew the people appointed."

That explains everything.

Got a quick thing that you can do for me.

Go the the letter and click where it asks you to sign up as a delegate.

Copy and paste that link as your response to me.

Thanks in advance.

God Bless.


Here it is:


I did this awhile ago. Now, when are we going to get organized?

This link also shows that this is probably a legit msg from Ron.
How I wish it weren't....

You've got to be kidding me.....

sign up as a Ron Paul delegate on www.eventbrite.com. Who created the ronpauldelegates subdomain account? Put those details up first. Otherwise I call data mining.

It might be legit

Check the last video from RP. I think this is the site the accompanying email said to go to to register.

Lord have mercy ...

Why are you guys so interested in names?

I can only think of a few possibilities.

Already posted and commented on.


Why do you expect everyone to jump immediately when you post something? It just doesn't happen all that often. This is the second time in two days you've made a comment about nobody wanting to know anything. Relax. Read what others have posted, too and you might understand why people don't jump for you every time.

Once again,

something important happens & almost all of you don't care.

You think this msg is a fraud? Well is was on Ron's letterhead.

It sure looked legit.

The dailypaul is not the tool for liberty it once was....

so sad...............
