...please let me know what you think...
Good start I would try to focus on the issues a little more something that will appeal to the average conservative. Maybe leave McCain and Romney out of it. Good luck!
not enough Ron or Amash.
I don't play, I commission the league.
Looks like it was designed by a high school kid learning, and going wild with, Photoshop filters. In short, it is an amateurish production:
Feathered edges, too many fonts, lack of design. Why that picture of Rand? That particular picture kind of makes him look like he's got Downs Syndrome.
"The purpose of this ad is to help Rand..." Wha? Why is that there? Do you ever see that in an ad?
"The purpose of this ad is to get you to drink more Coke." If you need to tell people the purpose of the ad, then the ad itself is not doing its job.
It is a decent start. Fine as a first draft. All first drafts are terrible, but they're starting points. No way is this a finished product.

I don't respond to emails or pm's.
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.
Not too into Rand.
And I don't believe in saviors. This kid thinks Rand will solve everything. It doesn't work that way. Why give up your power by glorifying another man?
Doesn't make sense to me. For Rand to get elected, he'll have to become a sellout like McCain or Romney. that's how you get to a position like that. It is called, "Flip flop your way to the top." And he's on his way.
...you ripped apart my choice of graphics, fonts, typing, pictures and everything else about it; then you start attacking me for supporting Rand. rp4pres wanted to see you try making a political flyer, not hear your views on Rand.
We need to get an early start on 2016: Support Rand PAC 2016
I told you.
rp4pres asked me to do something; I declined and told him why.
Furthermore, I didn't rip anything apart - I gave you constructive criticism, which is what I thought you asked for. Apparently what you were asking for was praise.
"Oh man, that is so awesome! Great flyer, man! Wooot! Rock on dude!!!"
Sorry, that would be a lie. The truth is your flyer is amateurish because you're an amateur. If don't want honest advice, then don't ask for it.
...wanted to see A flyer, not a Rand Paul flyer. And no I was not looking for congratulations and praises, I was looking for constructive criticisms as you see in the comments BELOW.
The libtards here will hate it and bash you for posting anything "rand Paul".lol
do one for hitlery and they will love you!
constitutionalists and conservatives, small gvt lovers and less tax- those folks like me WILL LOVE IT!
I would walk door to door and hand out that flier.
it is simple, to the point and easy to read and look at.
"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!
Rand Paul 2016
Liberty Movement republican co-opter.
Brother Winston Smith
The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.
Hates that Ron Paul was a Republican.
Hates it even more that Rand Paul was never a libertarian candidate!
...let the up-votes and down-votes speak for themselves.
The pro-war RINOS are for the most part Israel-firsters. They believe that the Bible mandates that God's "chosen ones" be protected and these RINOS believe in that more than they believe in the USA and the US constitution. What sealed Sadam's fate was when he made payments to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers. The Zionist power brokers through a number of sneaky and illegal maneuvers got the USA to fight its battles for it. We need a leader who will put the interests of the USA first, second and third and Rand Paul is NOT that fellow.
whos yer gal??
would it be Hillary?lol or maybe fairie johnson??
AMASH 2016... a real consistent pro-liberty voice.
Or even better, RON in 2016.
I would vote for either one, but the quickest way back to real freedom is only ron.
he knows the congress and knows how to use the power of the people along with the power of the constitution to get what he needs done in a jiffy. I dont want it to take 10 or 20 years.
ron would let it all fall down and then make sure there are clean hands that put it all back together. While the states put it all back together ron will dismantle the federal gvt limb by limb- and do so at no cost to the tax payer and divide everything up equally and fair when he does it because tthe fed is RICH!
thats why i cant go for anyone other then ron paul.
No one else has 1/4 of the brain power RP has.
I can only figure he did not want the presidency, which he has said he does not pursue but if the people put him in, he will accept.
not enough wanted him and he didnt want it bad enough.
maybe by 2016 there will be enough people screaming for a return to constitutional gvt and elect him then,! OR RAND!! Rand is just like his father and doesnt mind getting a little dirty and wont show his hand. but he can be trusted like his father- regardless of what others say here.
Only a DUMMY would WANT to be POTUS right now.
and rons no dummy.
Ron Paul doesnt just hold a philosophy of gvt.
he can explain it in 5 different american languages that americans understand however, he does not seek office and americans are hesitant to elect some one who doesnt actively pursue something "they think"" he should want...
People think one should lust after the presidency and hastily give all the people power away by asking a president to "save them" when all rp really wants to allow them(people) to save themselves and knows they have a better chance then to let gvt do it..
but people will always want a savior. ron realizes this. but he knows its not gvt and people are afraid of that door number 3 he stands infront of...
Ron knows(has taught us) we are our own savior, and not gvt.
so he will never take office unless we put him on our backs and carry him up the front stairs of 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue and put him in there ourselves. he doesnt want it bad enough and who could blame him?
You are starting from a weak position in that flyer. The picture is nice. Leave off the two little heads and any reference to them. Leave off the "to save the GOP" bit too. Then it will be a good starting point.
2016 is four years away. I think you have the right idea (make resources! commit to a goal!), but that goal will be better served if you start taking each year based on its oppurtunities to build a culture that Rand will be the front-runner in.
In 2013 take on a local issue that you can work with elected officials on. Try to find something that in non-partisan and that is overwelmingly supported by the people. Start by talking to people about it to get a feel. Then approach your local political parties, community groups, etc. Make a flyer to hand out with something like "Call your concilmember and ask them to look into this." Build a network of "lobbyists" in each district of whichever body you are working with (City, County, Water Board, etc.). This will give you the chance to meet all the involved members of your area, get to know the office holders, etc.
Then in 2014 take what you have done and work on a ballot campaign (either a race for office or a measure/proposition).
In 2015 go back to direct action, maybe a state-wide legislative issue, trying to get a member to introduce it, and having a lobbying network to approach each member from their district. Again, try to do something non-partisan and popularly accepted. This varies peer region.
In 2016 repeat 2014, use your "access" to basically all the people in your state, to leep-frog and recommend, promote, etc. Rand for GOP Nom. I want a similar movement to happen with the Progressive Democrats, the Greens, and Libertarians. This way, our whole movement is resting on the election of one person to the hardest seat to win, if we build the way I laid out then we will have already accomplished a lot of reform and a huge cultural shift. And that is the only environment in which a Rand Paul, or Ron Paul, or Ralph Nader type progressive, etc. can Win.
This is great advice to help all of us become more influential. I'd love to see you adapt this comment into a topic of its own.
Please stop using words like "conservative" that convey no information. Words like "liberal" and "conservative" no longer have any useful meaning without defining what you mean when you use them. Do conservatives want to conserve our huge, intrusive unconstitutional socialist/fascist government? Is that what you mean?
No, drop Rand immediately so that a more principled freedom-lover can step forward to promote liberty. Rand is a dead-end for the movement.
Not sure about the FB link. It looks too opportunistic. I.e. that it's obviously not Rand Paul trying to get people to sign up to build a personal email contact list.
Rand sucks-up to Israel too much and endorsed Romney while his father Ron was still in the race. I prefer to support someone with ethics.
I can see by the -6 score my posting has so far that the Daily Paul is visited by neocon RINOS. Try as hard as you like, you will not derail the LIBERTY train.
youre on the wrong train.
no one calls it a libery mvmt except the ones here who want to change the msg.
thanks but no thanks.
Its about the right to LIFE, then LIBERTY-THEN protection of our pursuit to happiness.
Those are gvts most important mandates and a liberal liberty movement leaves out the fact that ron pauls deepest message, as a father, an ob gyn, gvt fficial, constitutionalist and friend of America, that gvts most important mandate is to protect innocent life where it may be found.
the liberty debt/ death train is not the train ron paul nor any of his real supporters will be on, because we get this.
Ron Paul has no ties to a "liberty movement" as you call it. He has ties to his revolution and tea parties every where. liberty movement is an online red herring and we all know it.
The Daily Paul is a user based website. You have more down-votes then you do up-votes so The Daily Paul as a whole has spoken.
Same as the Tea Party site, I would assume republican co-opter are crawling EVERYWHERE. you can tell BY the down-votes. Any...I MEAN ANY criticism of the leftist republican party will gather an average of 5-10 down-votes... but RARELY a reply.
...WILL get behind Rand Paul. WHEN is the question
many here dont deserve rand paul and should stay on their own side.
thats the problem that happened to ron.
rand will be SURE not to cater to libs and they have all ready received their walking papers with an endorsement for romney!
they cant be stupid enough to really think rand wants them around him, do they??
after what rand saw the libs do to his fathers campaign, he will make sure none are a part of his 2016 bid.
so. many here at the DP might WANT to try and line up behind rand, but rand wont accept them, knowing they will bring him down if he lets them infect his campaign like his father allowed all to often.
that is my only gripe with ron paul. he allowed libs in and they infected ALL rons campaigns in one way or another.
There's this little thing called principles, you may have heard of it. If he tries to play ball, he'll lose a lot of people. You can believe that or decide to ignore it at your own peril. It happened to Gary and Romney, it will happen to Rand too, especially if you people add fuel to the fire by demonizing people that bring up problems with Rand.
Ron Paul never "played ball"???
