Janurary 29th IS FLORIDA Primary ELECTION DAY!



Certainly, we would love it if Ron Paul could speak at this event, but we completely understand that he's had a rough campaign so it's okay if he can't make it to give a speech after the Debate. OUR GOAL IS NOT TO HEAR RON PAUL SPEAK, BUT TO GET HIS NAME OUT!

More important than Ron Paul speaking before the FLORIDA Primary election is HIS VICTORY SPEECH after the election!

So from Pensacola to Jacksonville, JOIN US!

From Miami to St. Pete, JOIN US!

Let's not forget Tampa, Orlando, Melbourne and Everywhere in Florida, JOIN US!

Florida is where some of the "Frontrunners" have had their focus, and we're giong to take it from them on Janurary 24th for the event and on January 29th for the Election!

NOW, if anyone from the HQ glances at this we would love it if Ron Paul could join us as well! But we will be out supporting him no matter what!

Please Join Meet-up Group 1301 ASAP and Download the documents of the Event to start SPREADING THE WORD!!

Side note: One candidate is doing a bus tour to visit all the possible cities in FL up to Jan. 29 election time. We want to frustrate him and other candidates by our presence at this Republican Debate!!

Anyone out there?

....where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is LIBERTY. 2 Corinthians 3:17(b)

***wants are unlimited, means are scarce...***

it's the economy, stupid!

I hope Ron Paul and all his supporters will use the choppy stock market (which almost surely foretells economic downturn) to make a point about perils of the current credit bubble and irresponsible monetary policy!

Some pointers are in this article by economist Donald Luskin:


and here is Ron questioning Bernanke last year:


I think with Ron Paul we are facing a recession.
With everyone else a depression.

We need other people to understand this point!

What About Funding a Super Bowl Ad? I'll chip in...

Can someone start a thread on this topic? A terrific Super Bowl ad could be amazing...

Blimp People already doing this

Go to the Blimp site to check it out.

Live Free or Die - Amen to that

Live Free or Die - Amen to that

Nah, way-too-expensive unless you're Budweiser.

We DO NOT want to compete with that beer company trying to buy ANYthing.

Want a chance of SuperBowl TV time? Help the BLIMP!!! Mrs. Paul just said nice things about it, and that means it needs to last until Super Tuesday at least...

PS http://www.dailypaul.com/node/28639 is vital if you live in Florida! Please click the link NOW!!


Actually read what the blimp site has to say about the superbowl ads...their strategy is to target particular super tuesday states, not a $2.3 million nationwide ad.

Hijacked RP Support

Some of the groups showing up are hijacking/recruiting RP supporters for their own pet agendas taking focus away from RP. Keep newbies away from that event as most of them are just interested in electing an honorable President but are turned off by the side shows. You could lose RP supporters by exposing them to some of these folks.

Nothing to see there unless RP shows up and even then it's pretty bogus as to what some of these people are up to.

RLC not LP

A correction to the agenda above: Philip Blumel is representing the libertarian Republican Liberty Caucus ( www.rlcfl.org ), not the Libertarian Party at this event. Thanks. -pb

Would be great if we start sharing the grassroots recorded AND

Live footages from the campaign trail!

Wouldn't it spread the message further for super duper Tuesday?


I would be pleased to host any Live or recorded events:

and please send this URL to ANYONE (especially in Florida) who could possibly help. Even though it's like herding cats, with the internet and a bit of cooperation/communication we can give EVERY RP sign in Florida another week of life and save resources for the campaign!! Please help me make this come true.

Sarcasmo...please email me directly...I'm MCing the Florida...

Hope to hear from you soon!

Yours in Health and Freedom

Thanks. I did.

I am SO happy you're going to help with this idea. I hope I can make it to your event in person, I'm sure it will be a party, but my ride down there just crapped-out! :( Plus the local meeup 502 scheduled our last meeting that night. :( Oh well...Maybe someone from north of Melbourne's driving down and back? I can be reached at jray AT martincam DOT com if so.

Anyway, in my dream-version of this, as it has evolved in my fantasies, we need 3 major heros plus lots of help & hard-work along the way, but it CAN be done. All three heros might end up needing air/bus fare home, and unfortunately all I can do financially is a tank of gas for the one who goes through Melbourne and gets our signs. Maybe others will help, or maybe 3 heros would not mind a one way trip to where they can continue to help Ron Paul get elected. :)

Hero#1 lives in Jacksonville, and will do the I10 Alabama route, gathering all Jacksonville's signs first early Wednesday morning. Meetups all along the way and throughout the panhandle will help with their RP signs, too, by getting them close to I10 and keeping in phone contact with the Uhaul driving hero. Ideally the deed is done by late Wednesday night, and Alabama meetups take-over for distribution across their state on Thursday.

Hero#2 lives in the Keys or even Key West (hey, it's my fantasy!) and he/she has family/friends in Georgia that need visiting up I95. Again, the deed starts getting done early Wed. AM, but I don't know if it's humanly-possible for this trek to be done in one single day. Meetups along the way will provide food & lodging, in addition to their signs, and I'll provide a tank of gasoline at the Melbourne exit if needed. This will not be an easy ride (the good news, at least in my fantasy, is that Jacksonville is already done!).

Hero#3 lives in Naples, and will do the same thing as #2 but up I75. This person is also headed for GA. This one will also be brutal if attempted in 1 day, and again good contact with the meetups along the way will be key. A cellphone that charges on the cig-lighter might be a plus...

Again, http://www.dailypaul.com/node/28639 is the main thread for this, but each of the three heros & the meetups along the way need to take this idea from here.

MSNBC Florida Debates

MSNBC will broadcast a two-hour debate to be held at Florida Atlantic University Thursday, January 24 from 9 pm to 11 pm EST. Will Ron Paul be in this debate? I really think this will be a great national exposure opportunity, but I haven't seen much about this on DailyPaul or RonPaul2008.com.


Here in Illinois!

Please go to our youtube video.



Also see this Ron Paul painting being auctioned on ebay!

Only "YOU" can make it happen. So get out there and DO IT!

We here in Ohio are in the middle of a BOOTS ON THE GROUND Campaign BLITZ. Not only do we have the Precinct Captain details going on...But we also are doing a BLANKET THE STATE with Ron Paul Campaign Literature BLITZ working hand-in-hand with that effort. Which involves lots of slim-jims and printed flyers stuffed into clear newspaper bags working their way into every household no matter what the records state the house may contain for voters. We don't care what their party may be, or even what the records indicate as far as registered voters that "may" or "may not" be living there. Who cares? We must get Ron Paul's name to as many "people" as we can. People talk. People listen.
And the mainstream media mass mind manipulation machine has decided that "people" are not going to hear Ron Paul, "people" are not going to see Ron Paul, and "the people" should just forget about RON PAUL. That's right. The media believes they are in control here. HAH!
We do not intend to allow that to happen...AT ALL.
We have doubled our efforts at this time to get the Ron Paul message out to the PEOPLE. The voters. The ones who count.
We are not just going to set up at the gun shows any longer.
We are now looking into swap meets and flea markets and craft shows.
Crank it up a notch or two, or three or four folks. Now is the time we should be seeing Ron Paul in the news because of his finish in Nevada, and the media is not going to talk about. But WE THE PEOPLE sure can.
And we "the people" sure as heck will by gosh-darn-golly!!!

Get out there now and JUST DO IT!

But first visit that dang AOL site again and get Ron back on top.


I was going to go but...

I was going to go but...I became a precinct leader instead...I think it's going to be much more important to GOTV than have a bunch of paul supporters cheering for each other. Even if we did have several thousand, the media wouldnt show it anyway

Not a very central location:/

I live in Florida and would love to go.. if it wasn't 9 hours and 10mins away.

are you in tune with the world around you

A Vote for Ron Paul Is One Less Vote For Giuliani

Florida is winner take all so every vote the grassroots can garner is one less possible vote for Giuliani. Also we need to look strong in every primary no matter if we are getting delegates. The campaign is letting us handle Florida and Ron Paul is in Louisiana right now. Keep up the good work. I would love to see our biggest rally yet.

We need BLIMP POWER lol

Everyone PLS, PLS donate to the blimp RIGHT NOW to add Blimp Power to this great effort in Florida. Only ~$8k til BLIMP LIFT OFF!!


pls repeat this msg until WE HAVE BLIMP in Florida!!!


So close, yet soooooo far!! I am from Colorado, but I am temporarily in Florida taking a review course for my medical board exam. I live only an hour away from the rally, in Coral Gables, but I have no car!!! ARRRRRRGH!! I wish I could go sooo badly, I think I am going to cry :"(

Cashing In My Delta Skymiles

I just cashed in some dormant Delta Skymiles and will be flying in from the Peoples Republic of California to Orlando to support this great cause. If you are short on cash, don't forget that you may have frequent flier miles that you may lose if you don't use.


email me at cicobiologist@hotmail.com to let me know if you need a place to stay. I'm sure someone in our meet-ups could put you up somewhere. Let me know if you make the trip.


Yours in Health and Freedom



Florida meet ups get behind Ron Paul Racing Daytona 500

We sure could use you guys down there. We started www.ronpaulracing.com to sponsor a NASCAR Cup car in the big race. It will be on FOX too!! So please spread the word and check us out at the site.
Thanks all and Go Ron Paul 2008!!!!

While I am a fan of NASCAR

While I am a fan of NASCAR and I would love to see this car in the race...here is a little constructive criticism of your website:

* turn the sound off...I almost closed the site right away
* add a "Goal" to the site. I don't see anything on the front that shows how much you're looking for etc....EDIT Ok I see it now.... but the front page takes up the whole browser window so you can't see it when you open the site.

Just a suggestion... And I do support you in making this website happen.


Ron Paul Racing NASCAR!

My son will love this!

Join Meetup Group 1301!

It's simple. If you plan on attending then JOIN MEETUP GROUP 1301.


You can't base total number of projected attendees on that group alone but it is the centralized group specifically created for the boca debate meetup.

For example your local meetup group such as /107/ should at least have your meetup coordinator join /1301/ and pledge how many will be attending from your local group. This will give 1301 a good indicator of how much to accommodate for logistically.

One thing I've noticed about Ron Paul supporters is that they are instant friends. It's super easy to talk to others you've never even met because of the common thread of support for this man and the principles we stand united for. I've only attended 1 meetup, I'm very shy, but I had no problem actually initiating conversations with other supporters. It was a surreal feeling of unity and I'll definitely be doing it more.

Florida is "all or nothing"

Correct? We should rely entirely on the volunteers for Florida and save the campaign money for super duper Tuesday.

"The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory is that conspiracy theorists actually believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is chaotic..." —Alan Moore

We Are Behind You Florida!!!

I think this thread should be used to spread info and give support to our family in Florida who obviously is working really hard.

I, for one, am amazed at the number of meet-ups in Florida...plus 7 major city websites and even a website organizing all of the meet-ups. Clearwater alone has 360 members and has over 70 events.

Looks like there is almost 70 meet-ups....does anyone have the total number of members and any feel for how many will get out and vote?

I've been pumped looking at some of the Florida websites and seeing all of their activities. And, for anyone making predictions...or undermining the chances in Florida, please check out this first:


Way to go Florida....


I've added them up. There

I've added them up.

There are about 100 groups here in Florida and 5,300 members among them.

Here's an image I made from it.


....your link resulted in a message that I had tried to hack into a site and that it was bing posted.


oops sorry!

sorry it has hotlinking disabled for images. :/ Don't worry about the hacking notice, I have to check those manually. again, sorry for that.

Just go to http://www.TreasureCoastDesigns.com and I'll put it on the front page for everyone to see. :)

Can someone flag the previous message with the bad link. I can't edit it. :(




You ever notice

That a lot of the posts from those demanding some sort of transparency from HQ as far as how the money is being spent SOUND EXACTLY THE SAME? Almost as if they're being written from the same - or at least similar - scripts? Seems a little fishy to me.


We had an altercation with the Florida Highway Patrol. We held a Ron Paul Sign over the highway and he threatened to through us in jail. Can someone give us some legal counsel on this. Please email me directly.

Thank you,

Yours in Health and Freedom

Dick head

Make him show you the law or statute in Florida Law or Federal Law (being a bridge is probably Feds ) that says you cant do it! If its not there then hes out a luck. As long as you stay inside the fences and arnt causing a hazard hes probably just following orders from his nazi boss.

What did he tell you? There are laws against posting signs on the roadway (right of way fence to right of way fence) and driver view obstructions are also an issue on some things. Here are some ideas

FIRST: I'd start by calling the FHP and asking to speak with a supervisor for some direction on what is legal... If you are calm and polite, as well as honest and make the effort to project the idea that you simply want to be a good representation of Dr Paul. Make no threats or bold assertions at this stage (certainly would not want to get sideways with the law... they are your friends:-) you can get an idea of exactly what you really can and cannot do according to the law.

Next, do the same thing with the local county attorney or prosecutor's office... same disclaimers apply.

WARNING: The few badge heavy LEO's out there do not respond well to threats. Don't tell them what they can and cannot do, they do it for a living and even if they are wrong, they just might do whatever it is just to prove you wrong on the spot. If what they are telling you is wrong, you will have that info provided by the phone calls you made 1st.

Go about your civil disobedience in a civil way... Don't forget, who Dr Paul
sees as heroes.

Yes, I know where of I speak... read my other posts. I won't go into anything here other than to say DON'T PLAY INTO THE OTHER SIDE'S HANDS. Read the Art of War. Don't do or be what your enemy expects.

Be Blessed

Assert yourself. Claim your

Assert yourself. Claim your first amendment right to free speech. Tell him you'll go to court, get an injunction, attach a lein to his house and see him drummed out of the Highwya Patrol for violating your rights. Remind him that he'll jave to answer for his actions in court and he'll be hard pressed to explain it all to his boss when the jury awards you a dollar for actual damages and 100 million for punitive damages for his violations of his oath. You could also remind him that he works for you.

Super Boycott...love the suggestion!

We'll probably see the officer again on Wednesday.

I lived in Florida just for this event! We can do it guys!


We have been planning the event since the End of December, but didn't want to get info to everyone until the details were covered. Sorry about the Late notice. If you can't come tell your family to watch the news...cause were gonna make news :)

Yours in Health and Freedom

Ensuring coverage

I hope you made the right connections to ensure coverage - that in itself is a major aspect of this event: ensuring coverage.

why are these only planned 4 days ahead of time

Why are these gathering planned so late. i would like to attend sometime but i can't fly across country on 3 days notice. geez.

I agree...

...I wanted to go to Paulapalooza, some other events, but this 4 day notice is nuts.

I have a ton of vacation days that I need to use, but can't just give 3 days notice.

Daily Paul is my primary source for Ron Paul news, but is there a quicker way to get word of any future events?

check out ronpaulforums.com

check out ronpaulforums.com

Where are all the Supporters?

We have 180,000 Precinct Leaders needed to help spread the word about Ron Paul and there's only 8,449 signed up.

If anyone wants to complain then go look in the mirror. Are you signed up and working your Precinct yet?

I get emails from people telling me something that's at least a week to two weeks old. I know it was late in coming but we need to utilize what we have available. Pay attention People! The best way to stay tuned is to visit dailypaul.com, ronpaul2008.com, and ronpaulforpresident2008.com.

We are so fragmented that it seems nobody has the capability of staying on point because they're too distracted by multiple groups.

If we have 100,000 plus people in the meetup groups then why isn't there 100,000 people signed up to be Precinct Leaders?

Get off your computer and your couch.

How is RP spending his money?

I may be a bit out of line here, but I don't want to donate a dime to RP's campaign until I see him start to spend some money. I agree that baby steps are a very important part of the process and he needs to develop a support base, which takes time.

However, this campaign is likely to be over very soon if he doesn't react. I don't want to see him wait too long before he starts spending his money. Hence, I would like to see an accounting (at least approximately) of exactly what and where he is spending his money before I donate. Doesn't anyone else here have this concern???


Someone please flag him so we can ban his IP.

This Person

Has been copying and pasting this same question since they joined yesterday.

This poster is looking for "transparency." Might I suggest a mirror?

I'll tell you....

If it's anything like NH, he spent his money on offices, signs, stickers, slim jims, phone calls, 15 or so full color mailings, TV ads, radio ads, salaries for 9 people + and registering for the primary. I'm sure his travel expenses cost something too.

How in heck can you not 'see' where the money is being spent? Oh I forgot - you have no clue what it means to campaign....
