Paul mcain debate

I still think this is a good idea. maybe Paul could announce it on the daily show. He does have a bestseller out doesn't he? I think that deserves a daily show interview. We are mail bombing HQ with the idea in hopes that they will pick it up. One Debate and mcnuts is history
Ron Paul 2008

Dear Dr Paul,

We the people, your faithful followers, are winning national delegate spots all across the country for you. You have a lot more supporters than you "envisioned" a year ago, more than I think you realize now.

There are a ton of UNBOUND Delegates for McCain that can be swayed your way if they were to see you and he go at it head to head in a televised debate.

Our suggestion is that, along with running ads here and there around the country. Challenge John McCain to a nation wide debate and offer to donate $1,000,000 to the charity of his choice. (An offer he can't refuse.)

Obama and Clinton have had many debates but you and the Senator haven't had one.

We know that you will win as always and the unbound delegates will swing your way! This is important and will most assuredly get you a speaking spot at the national convention!

Please consider making the announcement, like you did with Rudy's Reading list!

Thank you for your consideration.

The challenge needs to be

The challenge needs to be put out there. then show up at all mccains appearances with signs reading: debate Ron Paul for our vets! Debate for unity in the gop! Show us what you're really made of! etc, etc, etc!
just my little thought on the matter!

Formerly rprevolutionist

You're right

I think RP needs to show up with several supporters and cameras in McStains face.
Track him down on the campaign trail and challenge him face to face.
mano y mano....

We need a troll

to suggest this on MSM. Any takers?

Funniest headline of the

Funniest headline of the day...

"We need a troll".... that made me laugh. :D

I think we may be missing the core of this proposal...

Some are saying, 'why would McCain accept, what has he to gain from this'? We all know that he will NOT accept, and that is the point. He will turn down $1,000,000 for a vertans charity instead of debating. That is the reason this is so brilliant! Most people in this country know there is no political gain for McCain to debate Dr. Paul, they will think it is the biggest waste of time, but when they hear that he denied a chance to receive $1,000,000 for veterans...THAT is a whole new headline, and That headline is the reason why this proposal is genius. Again, it creates a lose/lose situation for McCain. Citizens will think, 'well I know he has nothing to gain by debating, but why won't he do it for the troops'.

Ron Paul for the long haul

Enonesoch

thank you very much !

My english is weak and I couldn't write this idea in such a good way.

That is a brilliant reason.

That is a brilliant reason. A charitable cause that is nothing but good for everyone. Talk to Dr. Paul about this.

And precisely which newspapers would print that headline?

the same ones that have ignored every other Ron Paul story up until this time?

Sorry, but I just don't see it happening.

RP2012!

I understand your pessimism...

It can be well defended. But why is it so detrimental to you if this is pursued? What energy of yours is dissipated by this proposal? How much of your time will be wasted if this is attempted? Of course Dr. Paul has had difficulty being represented by the MSM, but when have we been influenced by the mere idea of the impossible? We have proven the theory of the impossible to be false on many occasions throughout this campaign. Those who say it 'can't' happen are those who give energy to us that feel it can.

Ron Paul for the long haul

Enonesoch

I already know that Dr. Paul

I already know that Dr. Paul won't be seeking the nomination, and he's said as much. However, if raising this kind of money is possible (and I know it is), then it sounds like a win-win idea.

McCain won't be allowed

to participate in a debate with Ron Paul. Those holding McCain's strings would need to review the scenario they have planned for this whole election circus.
McCain is too inept to spar with Dr Paul at any level.

The fact that McCain allows himself to be manipulated by the GOP and the 'behind the scenes' power brokers shows what a spineless man he is.

When you wish upon a star...

Here's the truth...this idea is far too idealistic. Hell will freeze over before the McCain cult will allow a debate to happen, regardless of the money to be donated. While I wish for a debate, it actually feeds the revolution and puts McCain at a disadvantage relative to Obama; who he will eventually have to debate.

We should really focus on helping the revolution move forward with as few distractions as possible. What are these agenda items?

1. Educating everyone you know about the RP platform and, most importantly, the logic behind it. No one else talks logic anymore. They generalize with campaigns about "CHANGE". The Revolution starts with sharing facts and helping to change perceptions. It's a process of awakening the sheeple. It takes time and it's hard work.

2. Ensure that the July 12th rally in DC is incredibly well attended. There's is way too little action on this occuring here and elsewhere. Why can't this be a priority.

3. Preparing for the RNC in September. There is a lot to do here and the delegate effort is critical.

4. Continuing to support Meetup efforts everywhere. Get involved and take action with fellow revolutionaries!

5. Getting your views to your congressperson, senator, etc. I have had some success with this and it really is part of the prcess, whether we like it or not.

Our founders were smart and DETERMINED and they ORGANIZED against an oppressive and powerful force. We have the same issue here and if we do not start being smart and executing a plan, we stand not chance against a smart and entrenched opponent.

If someone has a better plan, I am ready to support.

But

Think of how many people would get one hell of an education watching a debate with Ron Paul and Mcstupid! And If there is some Slim chance we could turn this thing around think how many lives it could save over the next 4 years!

We could

at least make it known that we made the offer to ALL (or as many as possible) delegates. This idea has many possibilities.

You should make pledge:

If McSane join debate "we the RP supporters" pledge to donate 1 million dollars in one day tto the veterans.

How he could refuse ? :)

Because he has NOTHING to gain by it

LITERALLY NOTHING TO GAIN BY IT.

A million dollars to some vets organization is nothing compared to the incredible damage this would do to him in the general election.

I agree, the debate would be awesome, but IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. McCain has NOTHING TO GAIN by debating Ron Paul. We could offer $100 trillion bazillion quintillion dollars and he'd ignore the request just the same.

RP2012!

Value of refusal

The value of the refusal may be greater than the value of any acceptance.

Consider..."McCain backs down from confrontation"..."McCain refuses to debate Paul"..."GOP Frontrunner Cowed by Longshot Candidate Request"...

How does that look for someone who claims to be for a strong defense? Seems like a streak o' yeller along his back to me.

exactly ....this is why a challenge..

would allow Ron Paul to win either way...

ofc it will never happen

But some rumor about his refusing will be nice too :-)

i cannot argue with that :-)

RP2012!

I'd rather make McC reject it than

to just sit here and say, "Won't happen." (put a dopey sound in your voice as you read those words.)

We'll never know

if we don't try.

McCain may be stupid enough...

to be goaded into a debate... But his handlers are not that stupid.

Ron Paul....

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

Remind us again what's in this for McCain

and what it is that would make him want to lend validation to the continued existence of the Ron Paul campaign?

McCain gains NOTHING by this. He only stands to lose, just by his mere acknowledgment of Ron Paul's continued campaign, let alone by coming into direct contact!

McCain won't do this. It benefits him in no way, shape, or form, and will only serve to weaken the already weak presumptive nominee. He is in general election campaign mode right now, and is not interested in campaigning for the GOP nomination any longer.

$1 million dollar? Pffft. McCain and his drug-stealing-adultress-turned-wife blow their noses with million dollar bills.

RP2012!

It seems to me that mccain's

It seems to me that mccain's ego is so big he might actually think he can out do Ron Paul. He might believe it is his job to put Ron Paul in his place. It needs to be a challenge and needs publicity. People need to know if mccain is afraid of the "doesn't have a chance" candidate! Either way, the challenge would be a lose/lose situation for mccain.

Formerly rprevolutionist

McCain would never even acknowledge the invite

He gains nothing by even admitting that Ron Paul exists right now. Ron Paul, in John McCain's mind, is as much an issue as the Easter Bunny.

RP2012!

certified mail?

?

Maybe we should goad his supporters, if we can find one

Maybe we should ask them if McCain is afraid to debate Dr. Paul? If Dr. Paul is insignificant, then what is he concerned about.
