Twitterbomb @GOPConvention to let Ron Paul speak!

I just got this idea that we can all Twitterbomb the RNC's offical account, @GOPConvention to petition them to let Ron Paul speak! Good idea or no?

Edit: here is an example of a tweet that I just did: https://twitter.com/Anna4RonPaul/status/232539289584558080

I'd bet

good money that Ron Paul's name will NOT be put up for nomination and he will not speak at the convention in Tampa. The GOP and media wants a coronation and they will have one. Romney and US taxpayers are paying big money for this thing. I think we are engaging in wishful thinking.

There may be some tacit platform stuff and a small bit of rah rah but I predict that will be it.

You guys are overreacting

And making us look ridiculous. If Ron Paul is up for nomination he's guaranteed a spot to speak.
P.s -daily Paul mods are dumb.

Why are we dumb?

Because we don't just assume everything that any Joe Bagofdonuts posts is true or not true like you do and we don't unpublish everything you don't agree with or think different about?

No, because you don't even go

No, because you don't even go through the trouble to check that facts are true before posting them on the frontpage for everyone to see. Because you post posts about talking cats rather than about what people should be doing to help get ron the nomination. Because you make a big deal of small things like a rand endorsement until half of the dp members leave. Because even during the official campaign you wouldn't post moneybombs or promote them for more than a day. Now, I'm not saying that you're dumb. Just whoever does these things.

Don't blame the mods, they're some of the smartest people I know

If you feel the need to blame someone, you can blame me. I don't mind. I'm the dumb one.

I didn't mean to blame anyone

I'm sorry I took it out on the mods, but I am just dissapointed in the way this campaign has gone.
This isn't over yet, and I wish I could take back the comment about the mods being dumb.
Guess I have to learn to keep my big mouth shut.

That's ok

I think everyone is disappointed in how the campaign went. Everyone is angry and we're taking it out on each other: Gary Johnson & Paulfest seem to be the easy targets.

I'm truly sorry that it became the mods, as they are wonderful, and I'm the one who put the cat video on the front page. I have a more detailed explanation about that in this comment.

I'm glad that you realized that you didn't mean to blame anyone. It takes insight and courage to admit that.

Thank you.

Well, I admit, I never saw the one about talking cats.

But I do know there are laws via the FEC such as 'in kind donations'.

Might wanna google that. ; ) Before you drill us about it. There's a reason for a lot of things we don't do.

Do you think we run this site legal threat free and everything is just always honky dory here behind the scenes in Ron Paul land?

You guys are over reacting

And making us look ridiculous. If Ron Paul is up for nomination he's guaranteed a spot to speak.

We, the GOP, honor the presence of Veteran Ron Paul

The GOP should feel HONORED to have Dr. Paul present at their convention. For him not to be included on their first list of invites shows disgrace and a total lack of respect once again. I do not agree that we liberty republicans should ask, beg or petition for a speaking spot. For the GOP not to welcome Dr. Paul and their newest, most educated and passionate members with open arms speaks volumes. This is political suicide for the GOP, but they are too arrogant to know better. I will NOT tweet the GOP to "let" or "allow" Ron Paul speak. This should have been an absolute, an honor, a given, that the candidate who has brought so many new members to the party (including many military members) would be welcomed and appreciated. Ron Paul is my voice, and the voice to hundreds of thousands of liberty minded people all over the world. My voice has been silenced one too many times by my own party.

Ron Paul was not included on the "first" GOP Convention Invitation. Either they are playing more mind-control games once again, or they have concluded that the liberty movement simply isn't important. Either way, the damage has been done and the Republicans have silenced a huge group of passionate voting members. We should not ASK or BEG anyone to "allow" Veteran Ron Paul to speak! It is both an honor and a generous gift to witness Ron Paul's presence and hear him speak. His message and legacy will not be stopped. I will be in Tampa for Paulfest to honor Ron Paul and his tireless efforts and determination. I would love to see him speak at the festival, along with the many other liberty minded speakers. Ron Paul is my voice.

Arin for Ron

Why are they censoring tweets?

I tweeted the question, or course it doesn't show up.

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

Either way,

it may still help to encourage them to invite Ron Paul to speak.

Great idea Anna!

I submitted a tweet, but then deleted it

because of a typo. When I tried to repost, it wouldn't let me. Wonder if they blocked me that fast :)

Tried again - it let me post, but it's not showing

up on the thread. Imagine that.

Bump!

If this takes off, send it to Ben Swann and Jerry Doyle (talk radio host and RP supporter). Jerry has a nightly show.
