NO MORE 3RD PARTY TALKSubmitted by easyfnmoney on Thu, 01/31/2008 - 16:50
If you think RP should run third party... then you are obviously not listening to what the man has to say. He was elected 10 times as a republican congressman, and he wants to the GOP to return to its roots.
Instead of saying... Ohh, if he does bad, he should run with this party or that party...
Myself, I'm a competitive person, and I don't like LOSING, but instead of spending your time in here arguing with one another, you should be on someones doorstep talking to people who know nothing about Ron Paul. I'm not even a Precinct Leader and I talk to almost everyone I know or meet, about Ron Paul. It's a simple process, I say.. hey, have you been keeping up with the presidential debates..
They say, yes.. no...
Well, if yes, you may or may not know about Dr. Ron Paul, and the first thing I tell them is, he wants no more Income taxes and IRS.
If No... lol I pretty much tell them his platform including the above statements.
It takes 45 seconds.. and I always end the little spat with.. Yeah, the guy is a real straight shooter, and if you want to hear him talk, don't turn on the news, you'll want to go to YouTube and type his name in. The guy makes perfect sense and he's what our country has needed for a really long time.
So far, I have between 15-20 people who are voting for Ron paul, not to mention the ripple effect. My roomate... who is typically a hardcore democrat has recruited his family, friends, and aquaintances just by having the little 45 second talk with people.
Ron Paul doesnt have a hard message to sell... but if hes on a third party ticket.. Its going to be incredibly hard to turn non-progressives to Ron Paul.
My grandmother, and my mom, both were going to vote for John McCain. Heres the thing, they don't even like the war, they are just straight line Republicans... Infact, I dont think they've ever voted democrat in their life. I tell them about Ron Paul, and they changed their minds instantly. Infact, my Mom has a Ron Paul Bumper Sticker (and she didnt even get it from me)
You guys are making this MUCH harder than it really is... In sales, if you have a product that is incredibly awesome, you don't have to sell the product, the product sells itself... Just like Ron Paul.. but if you take that product and put it in a packaging people aren't used to seeing... (i.e. Make Pepsi and sell it as Off-Brand Grocery Cola.... but tell people its still pepsi) You may get some people to buy it, but the majority of people are still going to get Pepsi, because it says Pepsi. (I'm contrasting him Moving from Republican to Libertarian parties)
So PLEASE... NO MORE THIRD PARTY TALKS.. because heres the deal with me... Even if he isnt the nominee... I'm still writing him in... and if he doesnt make the republican ticket... Lets stage a massive grassroots campaign for a write in... We have too much of an organized base to not think we are able to do something like that... We will have all summer long... We have to keep flooding the MSM with emails, calls, everything.. DONT GIVE UP HOPE... Our founding fathers are proud of us right now, but they'll be even prouder when Ron Paul is the next president of the united states.
