We're not just the internet...
A thought occurred to me about Ron Paul ruling the internet. For the past 10 years, I've watched this behemoth thing called the internet grow exponentially - everyone is online now-a-days - the internet is HUGE!
Then comes the mainstream media, with their attempt to marginalize Dr. Paul's dominance of this media, and then to suggest that the internet is insignificant, is exactly why America is waking up to the mis-information age. Each of the mainstream media constitute only a small percentage of this monolithic internet, yet Ron Paul rocks and rules the whole thing, and is only getting bigger. #1 Republican on MySpace.com, #1 Presidential candidate on YOUTUBE (by subscribers), and quickly closing in to become #1 on views. #1 Republican website in May, up from 8th. in March. 'Ron Paul' still in the top 4 'most searched' terms in blogosphere (and was #1 for weeks and weeks). All of this WITHOUT the help of the MSM.
I say that to say this. Every set of eyes that logs on was birthed by someone. Tell yo' Momma. Tell yo' granny. Tell yo' Daddy. Tell yo' sister. Tell anything that moves, is 18 by primary day, and can vote. Tell them to check him out, register Republican, and vote in the primary. Help them do that if you can. I tell folks that Ron Paul is the most popular candidate on the internet, bar none, and then continue to say, "he's number one on YouTube, MySpace, Eventful.com, and has the most traffic to his website...more than any other Republican!" Most of the time their interest is tweaked.
Fundraising financials are coming out soon - don't let all the other candidates bigger numbers get you down. Ron Paul has support that CAN'T BE BOUGHT; support that is significantly more valuable, and not even measurable in dollars. Consider the number of us that spent much of our day handing out fliers and bumper stickers that we paid for. Driving around in a vehicles plastered with signs that we made or paid for. And working many hours that the RP campaign NEVER asked us to work. That, my friends, is what we're ALL doing - It has a priceless value to this cause, and hasn't been calculated into Ron Paul's numbers. Keep it up - we WILL WIN!
