Best Wishes to everyone on the new Anita/baldwin campaignSubmitted by scandinavian on Sat, 06/07/2008 - 13:14
As expected the spin machine came out.
Each person must do their own research if they believe chuck's campaign is important to be involved with.
It will be difficult to find information on anita unless you have contacts to call.
Be aware that any comment on here, or other sites could be from parties in the anita's campaign, campaign bloggers, or others contracting with her groups,etc, even when they say they aren't.
It is troubleing for people to claim that they were on calls and did not hear Anita state the things she did state. Or try to spin things somehow to say that barr, viguerie, etc...are too blame.
Somehow the famous viguerie comment of the "boogie man" fear tactics comes to mind. Sad ..honesty is always the best policy anita, not deception. A simple apology, or mistatement letter to the public was all that was needed.
Ultimately Anita has to be responsible for her words. Ronald Reagan took responsibility, Harry Truman did it and sooo many others.
People arent stupid in the paul movement. The movement has enormously educated and talented people with connections that can find out anything.
Misdirection isnt going to work.
This post and the previous posts prior to mine on anita on this site, and from historic posts on anita's efforts on the ron paul efforts are found on ronpaulforums.
Its up to the reader to do the research call people of opposite opinions and make an informed decision about who you will work for.
The posts on ronpaulforums show too often from the past and today saying the same message far too often from totally different leaning sides, in totally different areas, at totally different times.
These posts are what they need to be used for. As it appears the past posts were done on ronpaulforums for. Raising a warning. A placing down a record that wasnt expunged.
People can call people in the movement they know and worked with and find people that arent crazy, or difficult, but worked on things, met with her, and hear over and over again of her attitude, opposition to the paul grassroots revolution, irs talking, etc.
Personal responsibility for a leader to apologize and correct themselves, rather than avoid ownership of their actions/mislead their people, create spin, is not something the paul movement should be on board for, since they never have before.
I guess the test will be to watch if anita maintains the revolution links, association with ron, revolution logos, and if chuck speaks at all the different freedom events(dc march), and for freedom candidates(like lawson and others),and many more to come for the rest of the year.
Most importantly will be to repeatedly ask Anita in person in the public, and only her , about what she thinks about the ron paul revolution, the great work everyone did on sign posts, door to door, internet, guerilla message to reach all of us that are part of the movement and think of ron as a hero.
Testing someone in person is the only way to find out their true character.
I hope and pray that instead of us all devolving to the lowest of message that we make sure that Chuck the man we know is protected and not converted into someone else for any reason. I would hate to see his message transformed, or he transformed, or a group of wealthy people get their claws into chuck and have him owe them any favors.
Best wishes to everyone on the new Anita/baldwin campaign.
