Strike while the iron is hot

I came across this article this morning:

Hillary supporters to Obama: "Continued scorn will not get my vote"

This excerpt comes from a letter from a Hillary supporter; presented in the article as representative of the sentiments of many Hillary voters (emphasis mine) --

Some of us just do not like Obama and we are NOT racists for not liking him. We see him as arrogant and smug and he just does not 'inspire' us.

We are homeless now and we are desperately seeking a home. We feel we have been ''abused'' by the Obama campaign and by the Democratic party.

Why would we go back to our abusers, especially when they continue to minimize our thoughts and feelings? The feminist in some of us certainly trumps any party loyalty we may have had and actually trumps any views we may have on Roe v. Wade or Iraq.

The more the party tells us how ''silly'' or ''stupid'' we are to ever consider supporting McCain, the more we become convinced of how we are not silly or stupid.

There is a message to be taken from this.


Okay, folks; you read it with your own eyes. "There is a message to be taken from this."

The message is: the field is ripe for the harvest. A large contingent of diehard Democrats are actively seeking someone else deserving of their vote; so much so that they are even considering McCain.

Let's offer them a far more palatable choice.

These are fervent, active supporters, and these devotees now feel disenfranchised to the point where they are willing to look outside of their own party. Sounds like they may be at a point where they are willing to consider all comers, and all (non-Democratic) ideologies. They may even be in a state of mind where they might (perish the thought!) be open to discovering that the greatest power they can harness as feminists is to unleash the power of individualism and personal liberty.

Do you know a Hillary supporter?

Strike while the iron is hot. Start conversations with them now.

I know a Hillary supporter

He told me that Ron Paul was always his second choice.
He said if Ron Paul is on the ballot in November he will definitely vote for him

Hitlery is scum. But many of her supporters arent so bad.
"let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our freedoms & wealth are in jeoprady"
Ron Paul

Freedom. Watch this video
Pls donate here Ron Paul can still win

The main one I know

told me about her "dream ticket." You know the rest of that story.

Yet another reason the time is ripe for an independent run.

also 48% of people are disappointed with the current candidate selections.
The GOP is fractured as well and awaiting defeat.
There is a perfect storm brewing.
We could have a serious chance if we could get RP and JV on an independent ticket.

Spread the MESSAGE

That may be so, Ig, and I know there are disagreements here on DP and throughout the Revolution community re: 3rd party runs vs. working through the GOP. But none of that matters if we don't get the word out to these disenfranchised voters about RP's message, and that's not limited to Hillary supporters.

While the Hillary supporters are actively seeking a candidate to support (e.g., NOW) is the time for us to introduce them to a candidate they would never have considered before. And if they don't consider him a candidate due to InSane's presumptive status, they can still be opened up to the message, which is, of course, far greater than simply RP for Prez.

Get them on board the Liberty train. Then worry about GOP vs. 3rd party, or other divisive concerns.

Think about it: they are sick of divisiveness itself. We don't need to present them with more!

Present them with the UNIFYING concept for LIBERTY. Message first!!

We need to have a direction first before we invite them.

They would be alot more likely to vote independent ,than Republican IMHO.
Instead of "hey come join us,we don't know what the hell we are doing,but come join us for freedom"
People that don't know they have been enslaved aren't going to respond to the freedom message.
Jesse Ventura provides that somewhat liberal balance to RP that could get the Dems. voting with us.

I don't know about

'liberal balance' but definitely liberal appeal. "We don't know what the hell we are doing" funny.

Who's talking to Dr. Paul about this?


All I am saying is to talk to these people immediately about the concepts presented in the Revolution. They won't join any group or movement, GOP or independent, if they're not on board with the message itself.

Some may wish to present the message in the light of RP/JV or other independent parings; others may wish to present it framed in the GOP perspective; that's up to person doing the presenting. My intent here is not to advocate one method over another. Those discussions are readily available in other threads.

I am simply advocating that we TELL THEM there is a path that they may not yet be familiar with; a path that will empower them to be free to pursue their own goals however they best see fit. Such is the freedom path, the path of the Revolution.

If we wait until we ourselves get the details all sorted out; wait until we have one defined direction as a whole, it may be too late for this potential harvest.

Hence the title of this thread. :)

I agree

I like your signature :)


Of course. The Time is now right NOW.
We need Ron Paul out there big time.
"Spread the message"

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

Show them the REAL candidate to end the war!

Dems are as fed up as we are.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.
