Taboo Subject, But I have to know...

Having given $400 to this, I have a right for the TRUTH;

How much Money and profits did Kurt and Eric con out of us from the Super Brochure Project? Was the Daily Paul getting paid to promote this? In my estimation, they walked away with 2 million dollars, bleeding money which should of otherwise went into the campaign, or our local grassroots efforts , and convincing us that their direct mail system (not the Campaigns Phone Banking direct mail system) was superior. It was obvious that they not only made money off each brochure, but the heavy profits made were the difference between the full price they charged us to mail it, and the .25-.30cents they saved through bulk mail discounts. 10's and sometimes 100's of thousands of these were bought by us state after state, and not one state we covered in full, won the vote. As a matter of fact, the 2 states we did the best in, New Hampshire and Maine, weren't covered at all, or at least, very little.

Without covering all the details and anti-SBP stances again ( I don't have time to write 10 pages) and the propaganda of Profiteering like "Anonymous Buyers matching precinct buys" towards the mailing end, Doug Wead had obviously stated in an interview after the RNC, the WE Are Change interview, that the campaign lacked funds to go after Romney in attack ads, and he called out people making money off the revolution and Ron Paul's name.

I'm sorry to bring this up, but after months of reflection and results, I think, as many warned then, that the Super Brochure Project was a complete scam, and waste of time, and a thorn in the side of Ron Pauls efforts and all those who phone banked for the campaigns direct mail.

I asked Ron Paul myself in San Diego, Ca at a private lunch on May 4th, what he thought of the SBP. Knowing he really couldn't comment on it because of campaign rules, he told me " I wish a lot more people would stick with the campaign's efforts, but don't let me stop you!" as he laughed in a friendly gesture.

P.S. I didn't see Kurt or Eric anywhere near the Republican National Convention (They're from FL) passing out SB's at our most crucial time of possible nomination... There wasn't any money in it for them to do so,in my STRONG and HUMBLE OPINION.

Also, I'm not a troll, not a Santorum lover, Not writing this because I'm flaming for Rick Perry, Not sent here by Herman Caine, Not part of The Obama Nation Army, Not a Hater, Not a Anti-Free Market keyboard jockey, None of the multiple crazy allegation verbal connotations I saw most of you guys attack others with the same questions like this in months past.... The worst of some of you came out when someone would write something you didn't agree with, and would call that person out for being a new DP member.. It was shameful!! Now that the official campaign is over, I just want to know..Sorry for asking, but I'm being honest!

is that it?

So you're willing to trash someone's name because you think you recall something in some video you have no source for?

So what you are saying is...

That in a free society if someone lies to us and defrauds us, we should say "Oh well, shame on me."?

I believe your response is a little unreasonable. You forget that in a free society we also have the right to call out such shenanigans and make sure that people are aware certain people aren't to be trusted.

Ron Paul - Intellectual hero

Unreasonable?

Anyone should assume that something they pay for allows someone else to profit. It is the profit motive that drives business and opportunity.
It is unreasonable to assume anything else.

You are not calling out anything - your talking out of the side of your kneck. Get a pillow and give it a rest.

I hope they made a million freaking dollars !

I bought them and would again, happy to support someone that is bright enough to amass the capital and resources to pull off a project like that.

Who lied to you and defrauded you?

These are very serious accusations. If you have proof that there was any fraud or deception or that anyone did not receive what they contracted for without compensation then you should present the evidence to support the accusation and not make blanket allegations that amount to mere calumny.

If you cannot present such evidence then you are prima facie guilty of slander and libel and should be held accountable for these crimes. There is no crime more despicable than that of destroying a good man's name.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

None of my business, but......

.... I would like to see the answer to that myself.

Hey Archons', we are taking our planet back and there's nothing you can do about it!

I contributed to the

brochure and received one and it was in my opinion better than anything I received from the Ron Paul campaign.

If the extra money had been given to the campaign we would still have the same results. IMO

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

You lucky dog!

I donated the cost of brochures for a whole county in South Carolina and didn't get a free one for myself! LOL.

Seriously!

(But I did get an update via email from them letting me know their campaign was effective. I posted the email on DP. Great response I might add.)

Totally satisfied.

...."if" is the operative word here.

...I think some folks would just like to know if they contributed to someones personal "I want to be a millionaire" campaign.

They should have

considered that before they handed over their money.

If this is a witch hunt and discredits grassroots efforts and men reputations, it is wrong.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

Reasonable questions

that deserve answers.

Post your personal income info first

Than ask others to do the same.

Of course they made money - all free men should profit from their effort.

Profit is a dirty word to you?

All your questions should be asked directly and before anyone gave. This public profit attack is obscene on a Liberty site.

Guess the Official Grassroots has

no accountability just like the Federal Reserve.

Agreed. There was a demand

Agreed. There was a demand and they answered it like any entrepreneurial man. I don't know the details about what was promised vs. delivered as I'm not a US citizen and didn't participate, but an anti-profit witch hunt against a private business is not what liberty is about.
