"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/

Tuesday, Sept 4th, 1PM: The Tonight Show with RON PAUL

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.

My Letter to Dr. Paul Today

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

I don't know if this can happen

but I am all for it if it can. The Libertarian Party is the real party for 99% of us, including Ron Paul. It would be nice if we could make it a party to contend with and no one can do that better than Dr. Paul.
