I Just Received This E mail From Dr. Paul

If this has already been posted here, I apologize. But here's the e mail:

"Dear Sam,

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!

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

P.S. The Republican National Convention is rapidly approaching.

And it’s absolutely vital our campaign’s delegates are able to make it to Tampa to help with our goals for the Republican National Convention.

Our campaign has spent resources defending our delegates in several states, and we want to make sure we can cover expenses for delegates that need help reaching the convention.

So won't you make a generous contribution to help my delegates get to Tampa and help carry out my plans for the convention?"

I guess you know what to do.

Not from Dr. Paul

Common guys, this email is not from Ron Paul.... you can feel that it has been fabricated. Dr. Paul would not sent a lousy email as this arround

"And remember, a half-truth is far more dangerous then a complete lie, because the complete lie is going to be discovered sooner or later - just a little intelligence is needed. But the half-truth is very dangerous, even intelligent people, very intellige

I received the email and donated $25

I'm going to Tampa even though I'm not a delegate. I was wondering how I could help the delegates who need financial aid, so here is the opportunity.

see below! Rhode Island needs financial help.

Thank you for the offer!!

I'm not donating a single cent for the platform. Forget it.

What is Dr. Paul thinking?

Platforms are useless. No one cares.

Hell, they don't care about LAW! They don't care about the Constitution! What makes him think they'll care about the GOP platform?

Sorry Dr. Paul, but I have no interest in platforms. This is where we part ways.

You want to waste precious resources on something meaningless.

I'll hold on to what little I have and put that to better use preparing for the inevitable collapse that is now a certainty since you gave up running for President.

There's nothing more disappointing to me than a capable man who regards success as impossible.

Hasta la vista

im confused

i Am a delegate going to Tampa, and i have not even heard from the campaign in months. are they gonna help me pay for my 2000 hotel bill? because i seriously haven't heard a peep.

contact them

The campaign has asked several times for RP delegates to contact them so they know who they are, and I assume to help them out when needed. Until then, they don't know who you are.

Yes, if you ask for help.

Read the email that was sent out today. They are serious about getting all the delegates there, get them credentialed and help with their expenses. Make contact.

Where do we direct the request for finacial help Nonna?

I read the email and I don't see it.

I am not a delegate.

My guess would be to ask your state delegation for info about contacting the campaign directly. Maybe try one of the Ron Paul websites, C4L or RP 2012. The campaign should know who their delegates are and provided a way for direct contact.

Thanks Nonna - but that's what I'm telling you

WE ARE THE CAMPAIGN in my state. There was no official anything here in RI. We put up billboards. We held rallies. We over took the RIGOP at meetings. We got 25% of our Delegation to be Ron Paul delegates to the RNC. I'm emailing the official Ron Paul website right now and asking for them to donate to our chip-in. We plan on giving more money to our Platform guy because he's going to be there for a full week before any of us. And the rest will be evenly divided by the rest of us.

Sounds like you've got a good handle on it.

Please keep us informed on your progress with your chip-in and with any response from the campaign. Your delegation is important to the campaign. They should get back to you.

Maybe Jesse Benton is in "danger" of not keeping his gravy train

going and he's using this emotional appeal to sucker more liberty lovers out of their money to put in his pocket.

more expenses

Maybe they have expenses that haven't been invoiced yet? Unless you've run presidential campaigns and you're also privy to their budget and how they plan on moving money around, I don't think you're qualified to conclude how much they have allocated for remaining expenses.

yeah, remember the campaign's

yeah, remember the campaign's record keeping, where they even noted purchases from cheapo dollar stores and fast-food restaurants even though they weren't required to?

Don't forget the legal fees.

Our delegates are being pushed out by the old guard. The campaign has lawsuits going in a few states to get our delegates back. Lawyers don't come cheaply, and neither do hotel rooms!

your point being Allegory?


why am I getting down voted?

I'm asking a question. chillax.

Point being

They've got enough money to fly every single one of the 500 delegates to Tampa and put them up already. They could do that for a million bucks and they'd still have $1.8 million to spare.

So what is the point of the money bomb, really?

Maybe this is a clue.

Did you consider the part

About the expenditures to fight the delegate removals? I'm sure the legal expenses are rather substantial

It's a good thing that you are on top of things....

Sort of feel somewhat let down by Jesse without actually "knowing" all of the nuances associated with how politics seemingly ducks when the arrows are loose.

We are donors to the Ron Paul Presidency Campaign and as far as I
know Dr. Paul remains very electable despite the influence of certain other naions which have an agenda to rule the US.

fearless brave joyful peaceful loving grateful, compassionate

As a delegate

I would like to thank the campaign. Any help we get will be a blessing. Not all of us are made of money like most of Romney's delegates, and this trip is costing about $2,500 and a week's vacation / lost work for most of us.

I received the same.

Shipped $15.


HOW do delegates & alternates access RPs money?

WE NEED HELP GETTING THERE! How do delegates and alternates access this money that Ron Paul is collecting?

Our Ron Paul Delegates are on 3 different committees at the RNC.

I am in Rhode Island and we have a chip in:

8 of us are going. 4 Delegates - 3 of which are on a Committee - Rules, Platform, and "Permanent Organization" Committees and 4 Alternates.

We are a TINY state but have a pretty decent Ron Paul contingency. WE (yes real people NOT the campaign) got 25% of the popular vote and were able to send Ron Paul delegates (no one but Romney and Ron Paul got enough votes in RI to send delegates) AND got ourselves on the Committees at the RNC.

Please make your donation here: http://rhodeislandronpauldelegates.chipin.com/mypages/view/i...

Here was my original call for help:

and you may recall our polite / killer stand off with Sharon Day:

I'm really looking forward to Tampa. I hope you can help us directly with our chip in.
Thank you in advance!

Good question!

At $2.8 million in the bank, there is more than enough to go around.

legal fees? campaign staff payments? I don't know, but I honestly don't care. WE NEED TO GET TO TAMPA to do our jobs as elected Delegates.
