Grassroots: I humbly ask for your help.Submitted by P. Nicholson on Mon, 06/24/2013 - 08:59
I have been a member here at DailyPaul for 5 years, 10 months and 10 days. Member 1603. I didn't really start posting at DP until after the 2008 elections. Im not trying to upset anyone, but the conspiracy theorists took RPF over after the 2008 elections and that is why I started posting here.
My proudest thread at RPF was this one: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?32204-Boston-Tea...
that ended up leading to this thread:
I am proud of our movement and have been a part of it every step of the way. I have donated countless dollars and hours supporting Dr. Paul, Medina, BJ and others. I have donated to DP a few times too.
I even made the news in support of Dr. Paul:
Ive had the opportunity to meet Dr. Paul twice and Mrs. Paul once.
I live in Columbus, Ohio. I moved back to my hometown nearly a year ago to be a better father. I had a successful business outside New Orleans, in Mississippi and walked out of it for my kid. Its not an exaggeration. My partner and I could not come to an agreement so I decided just to give it to him and walk away. Let me tell ya... it has been a struggle! It has also been the best decision I have ever made. My daughter and I are incredibly close now. She is starting 4th grade in the fall. She reads at a Jr. High level and is a grade ahead in math. She is incredibly mature for her age and I could not be more proud of her.
My first activist/political meeting, in support of Rand, is tonight in Columbus, Ohio. The meeting is at the Downtown Holiday Inn at 8pm. 175 E. Town St 43215
I do not suspect more than 12 people showing up and that is absolutely fine with me. I would like to start small and allow this coalition to grow organically. Slow and steady wins the race. Getting out front now is very important. Political power is at its weakest during midterm elections. This is when the bare bones, the committed groups remain involved. This is when we can bridge gaps and find quality allies moving forward to the 16 election.
Tonight, we will meet each other, name our group and set an agenda with small goals to start. I encourage anyone in the Columbus area to join us.
In the 90's and early 00's I was a very successful 'rave' promoter in Columbus. I brought thousands of people together to party, dance and have a good time. None of my shows ever had a fight and all of my investors made money with me. That was then, this time I want to bring people together for the cause of Liberty.
I have written a business plan and need to raise some capital. The space that I have found for my business is 4000 sq. ft., 2000 sq. ft. on two floors. The top floor will be used for my awesome new business and I will donate a majority of the bottom floor for Rand Paul 2016. (I need some of the space for storage) The location is magnificent. It is central to the city. But... the window of opportunity is closing fast. I would not be asking for help if I did not believe I need it.
I need to raise $5000 this week in order to secure the lease. Once I secure the lease, I can incorporate and raise the capital I need to open. (the landlord is giving me until the end of Sept to open) I have found an incredible niche in my market that nobody has thought of. My plan exploits this niche. I am actively seeking investors but must secure this lease before anyone will sign a check.
We all believe in Free Markets and this is absolutely an opportunity to make a difference. I promise to work tirelessly on my business and for Rand Paul 2016. I need your help though.
Ive considered starting a kickstarter or chip in but would prefer to deal with investors directly. You can private message me, call or preferably text me. (I get poor reception at my house but can call back)
My pitch will not take more than 3 minutes.
Help me make a difference in my city. Ohio is a huge battleground state and I will work tirelessly to secure a Rand victory in 2016 in my city.
Thank you for your consideration.
(even if you aren't interested in attending or investing, could you please bump this thread. Thanks:)
