Alternative Medicine Supporters

Here's a thought. I think that people involved in alternative medicne would be a good group to go after. They stand ALOT to lose with the system the way it is. I have emailed the American Herbalist Guild, introducing Dr. Paul and explaining his position on governments role in healthcare.

They will be having their:

2007 AHG National Symposium!
Beyond the Basics, Beyond the Books: Clinical Botanical Medicine in Real Life

Venue: Columbia Sheraton: Columbia, Maryland (See location on a Google Map)

Dates: October 26-28, 2007, preconference intensives on October 25

It would be great if we could have some supporters in the area handing out materials to these people.

I am going to start hitting natural food stores and alt. clinics in my city, Lubbock.

Anyway, just a thought. I know his position in this area hits VERY close to home for me, so it might with others like me.

God Bless

Health Food Stores LOVE Ron Paul

We've been working our local health food stores for months! They LOVE Ron Paul. All of them have posters/signs in their windows. One has 2 large posters in the front window and SlimJims/bumper stickers inside for everyone to take.

The anti-Vaccine group too!

One more thing to do would be to make sure that the often vocal anti-vaccine crowd is aware of and hopefully promoting discussing Dr. Paul's oppostion to mandatory vaccines as quoted here:

"I also opposed the Homeland Security Bill, H.R. 5005, which, in section 304, authorizes the forced vaccination of American citizens against small pox. The government should never have the power to require immunizations or vaccinations." - Dr. Ron Paul (From the official campaign site: http://www.ronpaul2008.com/issues/health-freedom/)

Here are a few links to some organizations that may be interested:

Vaccination Liberation
http://www.vaclib.org/

Vaccine Truth
http://www.vaccinetruth.org/

Vaccine Risk Awareness Network
http://www.vran.org/index.htm

There are plenty of sites out there, think how great it would be if each of those sites put up a Ron Paul banner with a link to donate!

Also don't forget the forums!!! If you can find forums that discuss vaccines or any of the other industries mentioned above, it may be helpful (and free!) to post a well thought out straight to the point message to get a discussion going in the forums.

As always BE NICE and not spammy. Keep it informative and sincere.

Great idea. Someone please direct me to some links to materials which lay out his position and/or past introduction of bills, etc. so I have something tangible to work with.

See links I posted below ;)

And don't forget canvasing local offices may be a fantastic resource off line as well! Leaving some business cards/brochures with Ron Paul info for them to put in their waiting room if they like the idea is great because they may turn on a lot of their patients as well!

Great Idea with Local Implications as well

An awesome way to raise awareness for Dr. Paul in the Alternative/Natural medicine industry is to email organizations such as these, but can also easily be done in your local community by stopping in to a few offices such chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, herbalists etc. with some literature or handouts that specifically list where Dr. Paul supports them!

I agree.

You'll also be surprised at how many alternative medicine practitioners aren't aware of Ron Paul's role in their profession.

I've spoken to a few, and they were basically in the dark about Ron Paul's advocacy on their behalf.

A very good idea.

Shhh!

LINKS & IDEAS

This is important info to spread to your meetup groups!

It could be huge on the local level and great for getting a number of emails to the main groups! Here are a few links to foundations it might be good to contact:

(Nearly Every State and County has local associations in these industries as well!)

A quote from Dr. Paul's official site:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in order to comply with standards dictated by supra-national organizations such as the UN‘s World Food Code (CODEX), NAFTA, and CAFTA, has been assuming greater control over nutrients, vitamins and natural health care providers to restrict your right to choose the manner in which you manage your health and nutritional needs.

I have introduced the Health Freedom Protection Act, HR 2117, to ensure Americans can receive truthful health information about supplements and natural remedies.

I support the Access to Medical Treatment Act, H.R. 2717, which expands the ability of Americans to use alternative medicine and new treatments.

I oppose legislation that increases the FDA‘s legal powers. FDA has consistently failed to protect the public from dangerous drugs, genetically modified foods, dangerous pesticides and other chemicals in the food supply. Meanwhile they waste public funds attacking safe, healthy foods and dietary supplements

Ron Paul in this Alternative Medicine Movie

"We Become Silent" is a movie about the Health Freedom Movement.
These are the key people fighting the North American Union
and the control over Nutritional Supplements.

Ron Paul is in this movie from a decade ago.

Part 3:

Ron Paul is the leading advocate for health freedom.
Get this Movie out to everyone interested in Nutrition that you know.

He spoke about it on CSPAN for several minutes yesterday.

If you go to http://ronpaullibrary.com and type in alternative medicine
search, you will find plenty of articles to print off that can be given to
Chiropractors, Nutritionalists, vitamin stores, acupuncturinsts,
and anyone who is a customer of these people.

If you know a Chiro who is a Ron Paul Supporter, they can send an
email out to their people with the movie "We become Silent"
and an article or bill Ron has passed.
