"EvanAlaska" Update on the Draft Dr. Paul Campaign

There has been a lot of excitement (and confusion) regarding our Teleconference this past Sunday.

The response so far has been overwhelming! We are working on a new webpage and facebook group which will be opened late tomorrow night. Trusted members of Alaskans for Ron Paul 2012 are helping now, as the response has grown exponentially.

You can share our most current information: Here is the teleconference link: https://www.facebook.com/events/343258709094797/

Show Dr. Paul in person your support for him to keep up the fight - SIGN BOMB Starts at 1pm - Outside the Jay Leno Show Studio, Burbank CA.
(Note: Inquire about free parking lot up hill from studio entrance ~ mod)

From Calvin Lee, California Organizer:

This is your chance to see Ron Paul again especially if you missed the Tampa Rally. INVITE & GO VIRAL!

We are here to show Dr. Ron Paul support if he so chooses to run for president as a third party candidate. His convictions throughout the last 30 years have changed the American political climate for the better. Top priority issues like the 16 Trillion dollar national debt, abolishing the Federal Reserve, Constitutionality, civil liberties, and internet freedom are now at the forefront of political policies and actually matter to the youth, all thanks to the tireless efforts of Dr. Paul.

9/4/12
The welcoming committee will meet and sign bomb will take place on corner of Bob Hope Drive and Parkside Avenue (address and phone number of the studio at the bottom)

Sign Bomb Starts at 1pm

Get your tickets now!

Los Angeles Grassroots will be having a debriefing right outside the Leno studios (#11) in Jonny Carson Park so please plan to stay for that event.

If you can't get ticket confirmations, make sure you get to the ticket center early in the morning at 6-8am to wait for standby tickets.

Monday Update: I have it on high authority with the Libertarian Campaign that they are open to Dr. Paul as VP, and will poll their state organizers, leaders and executive committee to make sure there is agreement, should Dr. Paul accept our plea.

In the meantime, our efforts to try to win Dr. Paul's support are not in vain.

Dr. Paul will have to let the Libertarian Party know of his interest ASAP due to certain ballot access timing restricitons--please encourage him to stand tall and soon. I'll add a list of things to do to this post a bit later today.

Also, the response has been so overwheming that we have created a team of trusted activists from our work here in Alaska to help improve the communications. We will soon have a website up with all the best and most up to date information, as well as a Facebook Group just for this effort. Look for another update here tonight with email, phone, and website information.

I'll copy a letter I sent to Dr. Paul today, so you can see my own message. Everyone has a different view of course, and you are entitled to it, with mutual respect.

In the meantime, the vast majority of feedback I'm getting from Republicans, Libertarians, Democrats, and Independents alike is that this is a worthy and widely supported effort, so it will continue.

Pessimists, and others who disagree, we understand and respect your doubts and concerns, but we are going to keep trying, because it feels right. It is a free society, and we are doing what we can to preserve and spread the message of Liberty now, not 4 years from now.

Thank you to everyone who is positive and working on this option! Keep recruiting more!

PS It's Labor day today, so be patient with calls--you will get through to Dr. Paul's offices better tomorrow.

Did it ever occur to you that it's a BAD PLAN and something Dr. Paul DOESN'T WANT?

I wouldn't Vote for Paul as VP

I will only Vote for Ron Paul as President. Gary Johnson can resign and give the position to Ron Paul and the other guy Judge Gary is he whose running with Johnson? Well Ron Paul needs to be President, VP will NOT do

This is the situation.

Why are the naysayers

exerting so much energy on this thread?

[rhetorical]

Well VR

because they didn't listen to the conference call for one. If they had they would understand who Evan Cutler is and all this nonsense would not be going on.

You are lying again.

You are implying that something on that conference call constituted proof and evidence of Dr. Paul's intentions.

THAT IS NOT TRUE.

It is a fabrication.

You are deliberately deceiving people by implying that rumor is fact. Rumor is NOT fact. Representing it as such is LYING.

Because Evan shot off his

Because Evan shot off his mouth and now Breitbart is spreading "Ron Paul no longer Republican".

Evan should have his keyboard impounded.

Unintended consequences are a female dog.

If that's true......

Evan deserves far worse than having his keyboard impounded.

The real question is..

why are the PTB spending so much energy trying to lure us into a third party? The answer is that we can be easily contained and neutralized in a third party. The "naysayers" are trying to sound the alarm about the trap.

Just because we vote third party for prez this go round does

not mean we are leaving the party. See what they do if you tell them lots of us are voting for Obama. They might get a little nicer for a few days.

Time to "grow up" Evan. The

Time to "grow up" Evan.

The revolution is up to us now.

Ron Paul doesn't owe anybody more campaigning.

Real change will only come from a change in infrastructure.

This is no 911 emergency.

We have our course.

Quit looking for a political messiah.

We already have one of those.

Here is the letter Evan Cutler sent to Dr.Paul & Carol Paul

after the 1st conference call on 9/2/12.

https://www.facebook.com/events/343258709094797/permalink/34...

Evan Alaska
My slightly edited letter to Dr. and Carol Paul today--edits noted with brackets.

Hello Dr. and Carol Paul,

I held a teleconference last night on the subject of your supporters persuading you back into the race Dr. Paul.

The response was overwhelming!

The short story is that [edited for privacy: many important members of the Libertarian party and campaign] contacted me, and they would do what it takes to have you on their ticket as a VP Candidate. They have spoken with [edited for privacy: ...and inform me] you will get the VP spot on their ticket if you will take it. The vast majority of their party activists and organizers want you. The infusion of energy your supporters will bring to that party will bring light to all you and they have worked for in a way that your mere endorsement will not.

The bigger story is that by my simply posting the link to our teleconference in our Private Alaskans for Ron Paul 2012 groups, and one post on the Lawyers for Paul group, I set off a firestorm. Word grew exponentially in just one day.

Our teleconference room was filled to capacity (1,000), with 1800+ people participating. It was live streamed and listened to by another 1,100 people on just one internet channel, and it was live streamed elsewhere.

Many of your National Delegates and State Activist Leaders were on the call, but also many Libertarians, Democrats, and Independents. This is just the beginning.

The people want you to give us two more months and help spread the message of liberty. There are of course concerns by some (particular those running for office), but there is a commitment by most to keep working in the Republican Party, and to do everything they can to convince you to run. My incoming email is more than I can handle, and our best Alaskan delegates and activists are working right now to put in new infrastructure and speed up the communication. You will see an immense wave of support in the coming days this week.

The Libertarian Party needs to hear from you soon, if this will work.

I can put you or your people in touch with them.

We NEED you not to give up. It’s not about winning the election, it’s about spreading the message of Liberty. If you will but give us two more months, you will magnify your life’s work and reach the largest audience yet. You will electrify your supporters and send an important message to those who would suppress fair participation in all parties. Your joining the Libertarian ticket will instantly get the polling up high enough that you will be included in the nationally televised debates. And we will bring tens of millions of dollars quickly to their struggling campaign. They are under attack by the Romney Campaign, trying to strip them of ballot access in several states, but they are in the very strongest position for your run…and your joining them will bring the support they need.

Besides, on the off chance that you actually win, being VP is a lot easier than President.

Please let me know what we can do to help convince you. I can send you the most pertinent communications I’ve received, and a link so you can hear our two hour call from last night for yourself. I can send you the call logs to prove I’m telling the truth.

We will keep trying to win your support for our support, Dr. Paul, We’ve worked too hard to quit now.

And remember, Miracles do happen! The Berlin Wall came down in a day! The Soviet Empire dissolved without a civil war! Women got the vote!

Everyone around the country tells me the only signs they really see are for Ron Paul. Your grassroots support is so much more than you know, especially if you are not on a Republican ticket.

We all know the risks to our progress in the Republican Party, but that movement won’t stop,

More good than harm will come from your taking this risk,

We need you to stand tall for Liberty sir, just a bit longer, please,

Sincerely,

Evan

Well written

BUMP

Made calls to all three offices..

The person at the Victoria office told me to call 1-800-Ron-Paul instead. The answering message recording listed 703-563-6620 as the 2012 campaign phone number. I just left a message on that as well.

There is no confusion.

You were asked for a source for your statement that RP is interested in pursuing this. You did not provide it. Therefore, your assertion is false and spamming the campaign is just rude.

Edit: More down votes for simple request for backing evidence. THIS is why I have no "faith" that the "movement" will ever go anywhere. Many/most in the "movement" are on board because of purely emotional reasons. You want to believe things are true without evidence, and want to ignore requests for factual clarification when they don't fit with your desired outcome.

Which means when Ron Paul has left center stage, you won't have the reasoning required to formulate your own opinions about what is correct and incorrect under libertarian standards.

2012 was too much success and too little education. 2008 was all education and too little success. Now that you are here, please take some time to understand why it is important to apply critical thinking and proper scientific and journalistic standards to everything.

If a semi-credible source provided seemingly incredible information hurtful to Ron Paul within the corporate media, you all would be screaming bloody murder. But how dare someone request the same standards be applied to you or anyone in the "movement"! Irony.

Why is it a bad thing

to want Dr. Paul to run third party? What could be the motive if this is false?

Why not just wait and see what he says tonight?

wolfe's picture

I did not say wanting him to run third party was bad.

Stating that Ron Paul is interested without any supporting evidence, and then getting angry when someone wants some evidence is. It's called lying or at best wishful thinking.

Further, spamming RP with requests to do so in an effort to convince him is unacceptable.

Isn't that what we've done with everyone else?

We slammed emails and contact info whenever we wanted something to be done. Why would it be different for the man himself? He's all about freedom.

I am just saying, that I don't see it as a bad thing. I just can't see a reason to lie about it.

I agree with wolfe and ashleyjean78

Hey wolfe,

I up-voted your post because you were totally within reason to ask for supporting evidences about the conversation with Dr. Paul. I also agree that it is a very emotional time for the movement and I would stress that everyone stops their attacks on people that want some sort of evidence, they are not anti-liberty/anti-Paul. They have a healthy irreverence for baseless assumptions as we all should, or at least we claim to possess, have. That is what separates us from our counterparts, sifting through the lies and propaganda and making an informed decision. That being said, ashleyjean78 is correct also.

I can understand why you may disagree with us "spamming" Dr. Paul for running 3rd party but we are well within our rights to engage in a persistent campaign to convey to Dr. Paul what our intentions are. Until, Dr. Paul himself states that he will not run 3rd party and for us to cease our campaign then, I assume, we will not stop. Persistence is what got us here, persistence is what will get us through, and persistence will triumph! Lol, that last line sounded like propaganda.

wolfe's picture

Thank you for that... :)

And you (and those like you) give me hope for the movement as a whole. Strong conviction but still tempered with reason.

Third Party is a bad move

because we don't have free and open elections AshleyJean. The same interests control the Press, the Debates, and the vote counting. Attacking them in their own party is the only way left to even ENTER the fight.

Finally, a real Grassroots activity

Go for it all you American Patriots, we all need a total change. Warm regards from bankrupted and demolished Croatia.

Evan, I signed the petition

however, I almost didn't. It says that I pledge to 'write in' Ron Paul if he isn't on the ballot. To do that in my state would invalidate the complete ballot and loose any local votes I cast. If that pledge could be removed or modified it may make more people willing to sign.

As for being VP. I can't understand all the complaints. Would they rather not have Dr. Paul in the White House at all? Is it only PRESIDENT or get lost? Do they really believe that the VP does NOTHING while in office?

Yes, I too would rather see him as President Paul, but if we have to settle for second place then he is still there and able to make a contribution. Since there seems to be no other way, then I say let's go for it.

It's obvious he ain't gonna be a Republican President!

Yes, The pledge is an issue

and many will not sign it because of that.

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

I definitely would NOT support a Gary Johnson candidacy

with, or without Ron on the ballot as VP. I would be shocked if Dr. Paul compromised his principles to get on the ballot with Gary Johnson. Gary Johnson does not adhere to Dr. Paul's principles and beliefs.

Why didn't you ask Dr. Paul if he'd want the VP spot, if it opened up, instead you have no real or even tentative answer on this particular question.

I will NOT support a Gary Johnson candidacy, period.

Come on people

Get behind this with all your effort, as this is the way forward right now. Not to the exclusion of working within the GOP or any other direction you choose. Not the perfect answer, and no gurantees of expected outcomes..but the way forward.
The way to continue spreading the word, waking people up and real gains for the Liberty movement.

Now is the time, like never before..sign the petition, vote this up, and spread the word..get involved.

Are They at All Interested in Paul at the Top of the Ticket?

You said they are interested in Ron being VP, but that doesn't get as many of us excited. The whole point for many of us is to get Ron Paul into the debates so he can challenge Obama and Romney. That's the exposure he needs. Gary in the debates doesn't really interest me at all. Gary is polling 1% while Ron is polling around 15%. Doesn't the Libertarian Party see how much they could benefit by putting Ron at the top of the ticket?
