E mail from Ron Paul 'Let's help get our Delegates to Tampa! 'Submitted by Linda Cross on Mon, 07/30/2012 - 15:49
As you know, the Republican National Convention is right around the corner!
From the beginning, I’ve said this convention in Tampa will be a critical step for our R3VOLUTION.
That’s why I’ve instructed my campaign staff to offer financial assistance to our delegates who otherwise wouldn't be able to make it in order to ensure every one of them can reach Tampa.
But in order to make this a reality, can I count on you to please make a generous contribution to help as many of our campaign’s delegates as possible make it to the Republican National Convention?
As you know, the establishment hasn’t just sat still and quietly watched us take over party chapters and rack up delegates.
Their opposition has required our campaign to spend resources in Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, and Oregon to defend our gains and defeat their challenges.
And with August just around the corner, we want to make sure we can cover expenses for delegates that need help reaching the convention.
Your contribution will be put directly toward transportation, lodging, and other costs associated with getting these delegates to Tampa.
This is incredibly important for a number of reasons:
*** First, the Republican National Convention is our opportunity to plant our flag and show that our Liberty movement is the future of the GOP.
Seeing a flood of pro-liberty delegates and so many new and young faces in Tampa will respectfully send that message to the GOP establishment.
*** Second, we’re expecting a credentials battle at the Convention to ensure the national GOP doesn’t just “look the other way” at some of the dirty tricks my supporters had to deal with in many states.
I’ll need my supporters in Tampa to help ensure as many of our campaign’s delegates get credentialed as possible.
*** And finally, the Republican National Convention provides us with the opportunity to affect the Party Platform.
As you know, pro-liberty delegates will be fighting for an internet freedom plank, an Audit the Fed plank, and a plan opposing the indefinite detention of American citizens.
We may also have a battle over a plank opposing the so-called “PATRIOT” Act and undeclared wars.
Getting these crucial issues in the Republican Party Platform will not only show that we are the future of the GOP, but also perhaps even help convince some legislators who were “on the fence” on these issues to start coming our way.
That’s why I’m hoping I can count on you to make a generous contribution to help our campaign’s delegates get to Tampa.
There’s no doubt that our Liberty Movement is growing by leaps and bounds.
And it’s because of your hard work and dedication that we are the future of the Republican Party.
Thank you for all of that hard work and for everything you’ve done for my campaign!
