UltimateRonPaul.com - Purpose - Collect data on Ron Paul SupportersSubmitted by Republican Liberty on Thu, 01/31/2008 - 16:24
The Ultimate Ron Paul site was created by Richard Viguerie who has made his living from creating databases of "conservative" voters to sell to candidates running for office.
Once again they are now attempting to get all Ron Paul supporters to their site, ostensibly, to sign a petition to "PROTEST the rude snub of Ron Paul in the debate." Rest assured this compiled database will either be used to raise money for another campaign or sold to another campaign for the asking price.
Unless I am mistaken, he has no allegiance to Ron Paul. He is attempting to find creatiive ways to entice Ron Paul supporters to help him build his database. If I am mistaken please show me where Viguerie has expended his resources to raise money for the Ron Paul campaign.
"I remain uncommitted to any of the Republican candidates," Viguerie said in a release, "but it is clear that Ron Paul is truly a principled conservative in the grand tradition of Robert Taft, Barry Goldwater, and Ronald Reagan."
Richard Viguerie "Pioneered political use of computerized direct mail. That technology was the Internet of its day: it enabled conservatives to get around liberals' dominance of the mass media; it allowed thousands of conservative candidates, organizations and causes to get their messages to grassroots Americans," he wrote.
Until I see further evidence of Viguerie's committment to the cause and not to his personal gain I will not participate.
