Ron Paul for the WIN - Help needed in order to do thatSubmitted by Ian56 on Sat, 08/11/2012 - 11:13
Post finished for now.
Positive suggestions welcome.
Send a letter to your representatives that they will lose their election if the RNC insist on picking Romney in Tampa.
We have a chance to take TAMPA, we MUST do all that we can to take our chance.
Romney has given us a chance with all his screw ups and gaffes.
He is already getting creamed in the swing states and Electoral College maps.
We have to discredit Romney and get him as low in the polls as we can.
We have to encourage the questioning of Romney's nomination and electability within the GOP and therefore delegate ranks.
The only thing GOP delegates really care about is kicking Obama out. (The VAST majority of them.)
The delegates in Tampa (non Ron Paul) and Independent voters are as ignorant of what Romney is really like as the man on the street. Fox certainly hasn't told them.
We have to get the information out as to how BAD a candidate Romney is and how BADLY he will lose to Obama if he is nominated.
It is not just the Presidency, GOP will lose tight races in the Senate and the House and hundreds of other seats, all kinds of offices at state and local level, because of their incompetent pick if they choose Romney.
1) Get the word OUT.
Top 50 Conservative news sites
All fox news article comment sections
(Thanks to veritas18 for these)
About how Romney is getting creamed and will get creamed some more.
About how Romney is a big government, big deficit, liberal, progressive, pro mandate, pro abortion Democrat and not a Conservative.
Some suggestions on the information to be used are listed here
Plus Romney's official campaign ad from 2002
Mitt Romney has effectively written a suicide note by picking Paul Ryan. Romney has given up on winning (added 08/13)
Florida's reaction to picking Ryan. (Headlines in several local Florida's papers). The Ryan budget plan is going to get a lot of this kind of reaction. (Added 08/13)
Summary of reaction to Ryan pick. Romney is getting killed over it.

Do not mention Ron Paul or link to Daily Paul threads - cut and paste instead. Otherwise they will switch off. They have been told Ron Paul is a nutter.
Stick to Romney is getting creamed and is and ALWAYS has been a Democrat.
If you are asked to name a viable alternative to Romney I suggest this :-
I want someone that would create jobs, cut taxes for all, cut the deficit, stop DC Pork, tackle bank fraud.
Someone that is prolife and does not make $50m from an abortion business, is anti healthcare mandates.
Someone that wants to take America BACK to what made it GREAT. None of this progressive BS.
Do you think that would appeal to Indie's? They are the ones who are going to decide this election.
I think it would, I think it would be a winner against Obama.
Do you know someone like that?
Don't rush to tell them it's Ron Paul - let them stew awhile and hopefully digest.

2.3) Ron Paul poll
Ron Paul is only 2 points behind Obama in polls with no cash and no media support
What I would like added to this Op-ed
WOW that is a remarkable result given the circumstances
Ron Paul only 2 points behind Obama with :-
1) No positive TV exposure
2) Lots of negative exposure or summary dismissal without reference to facts or policies
3) Zero political support
Get a few Senators and Congressman speaking up for him on the Sunday morning political shows etc.
They will have to do that if they are in a tight re-election race - otherwise they are cutting off their own noses to spite their face.
4) Ron Paul got little or no exposure in several states.
He did not have the cash to campaign everywhere.
(E.G. Florida would have been far too expensive, but he would be able to in the national election.)
Minus 2 points would rapidly become plus 6 or so with a bit of cash and support. And then maybe more.
Ron Paul would have to present his policies in the right kind of way to appeal to the general public.
That is why I wrote this.
Ron Paul's case for the Nomination
It would then make a VERY powerful piece.
I wrote a much more detailed analysis of why and how Ron Paul WOULD beat Obama if he managed to be nominated.
