Evidence from Florida is in ---> Canvassing WORKS!!

The following email I just received from the Paul campaign - I have been trumpeting this for weeks here. It's time we realized that this is the only way we're gonna win this:

We received this message this morning from a Ron Paul supporter in Florida. Because it is so important, we are sharing it with you, too.

I wanted to share my experience canvassing here in Broward County, South Florida.

As you know, Dr. Paul took 3% of the vote yesterday in Florida. A friend and I signed up on the campaign's website to be a precinct leader, and took it upon ourselves to canvass 13 precincts in Broward County. I'm proud to report that in the precincts that we canvassed, Dr. Paul came in second to John McCain.

That's right; Dr. Paul beat Romney, Giuliani and Huckabee. This happened with almost NO media coverage of Dr. Paul. It's particularly noteworthy, because Broward County is a stronghold of Rudy Giuliani.

We know of other Dr. Paul supporters in Broward County who were waving Dr. Paul's signs, but they did not do that well in their precincts. Sign waving does NOT get votes, BUT PRECINCT WORK DOES GET VOTES!!! Please do the precinct work in your area so that Dr. Paul will win. God Bless You.

Help us by signing up today to be a precinct leader in your area. If you really want to make Ron Paul our next president, sign up and begin canvassing right away. You're counting on Ron Paul to do his part, and he's counting on you to do yours.

This is work that any dedicated supporter can do, and, along with donating, is the most important thing you can do to ensure a Ron Paul victory.

Sign up yourself, and then encourage all your friends to sign up here: https://voters.ronpaul2008.com.

This is how it's done, folks.

I take my marching orders from the Constitution!

I'm not giving up..

..but i am totally disgusted today with our electoral system.

8 mos ago i got involved with this campaign.

sign waving, painting my truck, passing out slim jims and yes, canvassing. i garnered some votes.

but, if you look at the number of votes in states with caucus's or hand counts vs. machine counts, it just doesn't match up.

there is no way ron got 3% in florida. no way. i tried an exit poll at my precinct for an hour, but the way it was physically set up didn't allow for traffic of voters. so instead, i canvassed and converted 7 undecideds...and still explained to those who voted for others that "well, if you're candidate doesn't make it to convention, please consider ron paul...it will be a brokered convention" all but one took a slim jim.

it is very depressing to watch CNN and have the votes go up by 5,000 at a time and still the % stick at 3%. do the math. how many meetup groups are in florida? multiply that by the number of supporters and you have alot of people. then add those that are not in a group...it surpasses the vote count.

it SUCKS not trusting your government.

i do encourage every one of you to become a delegate in your state and a precinct captain in your precinct. get out door to door, ESPECIALLY in CAUCUS delegate states where MACHINES do NOT count the votes. this is critical and it follows what is becoming apparent Dr. Paul's strategy.

DO THIS PATRIOTS PLEASE, so you do not have to feel the way I do today.

Thank you for your post ...

... and please do not get discouraged. It took decades for things to get this bad. Look how far we've come in just 6 months. 90% of the American public still doesn't know Ron Paul from Ru Paul. To be doing this well with the entire establishment against us is a testament to the fact that the message is POWERFUL. Our job as canvassers is to get the 90% down to 0%. We all should know by now the media is not going to do it for us. Please do not give up now. We are on the verge of winning! Just remember Fox News can't censor your conversation with your neighbor.

think back to Iowa

We won 1 county---guess how? lots of canvassing and local (cheap) newspaper ads. So now we just have to do it! The campaign has been asking for Precinct leaders. For all the the TALK about how great and committed Ron Paul's supporters are, we're not exactly falling all over ourselves to sign up. In fact, it makes a very good case for the media to legitimately decide that we're all losers and stop covering the campaign. Don't wait for your neighbor to do it. This is a long fight---What is Liberty worth?

Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. It is absolutely imperative that we learn from recent state primaries which ideas work and which ones don't. This UNDENIABLY POWERFUL EVIDENCE from Florida is proof that canvassing works.

Damn right! I challenge you,

Damn right!

I challenge you, just ONE TIME, go to a random neighbor's door with the intention on finding out if they are registered to vote, have a registration card handy (you can pick one up at your local library for free...), and a Ron Paul flyer. Guaranteed this is how it will go (9/10 times... so maybe you'll hit the 10%'r, but if so, try twice and then, GUARANTEED this is how it will go!

You: "hi, I'm going around the neighborhood to make sure folks are registered to vote in the upcoming primary, just checking to see if you're registered..."
OPTION 1: - Them: "Yup"
You: "Great! I also wanted to just drop off some information on Ron Paul, have you heard of him before?" (while handing them a slim jim or flyer)
Them: "Yeah, I think I have...Thanks for the information"
You: "No problem, check him out and if you have any questions or want to know more about the guy, there's a website at the bottom of the flyer you can go to for more information. Glad you're registered!"

or...

OPTION 2: - Them "nope, not yet"
You: "Well, here is the simple registration card that takes about 20 seconds to finish, you have to have it in by (insert date), so simply fill it out and drop it in the mail, I've got a pen if you wanted to do it now so you don't forget!"
Them: "Thanks"
You: "I just wanted folks to not miss out on the upcoming primary. Also, I have some information about Ron Paul, have you heard of him? (while handing them a flyer)"
Them: "No, I don't think I have...Thanks!"
You: "No problem, and there's a website there on the flyer you can go to for more information, glad you're registered, take care!"

Ta-da!

I friggin dare you to go do it and come back here with just 1 result.
It's so easy, you'll slap yourself!
