UPDATE: Adopt a county in IowaSubmitted by irenaeus on Thu, 11/08/2007 - 15:03
Lets face it, while we can do our best and campaign til the cows come home in our local districts it doesn't much matter if Ron Paul flops the early primaries. New Hampshire is always talked about and it is very important, but Paul is also doing much better there than the equally important Iowa. I've read a lot about Iowans working hard for Dr. Paul, but they could use our help! Lets face it, we still don't have the kind of money it takes to buy name recognition and people still aren't aware of Ron Paul's policies. There just aren't enough people in Iowa to spread the word to make up for this disadvantage.
Here is what I propose: meetup groups across the country all adopt a county in Iowa and dedicate a week of their time to helping out the campaign there. Make phone calls! Write letters to the Libertarians there and let them know that Ron Paul is their own personal wet dream! If we can touch just a couple of people in every county it would help the campaign grow 10 times as fast in Iowa! What we need is a network of statewide active campaigners! If we can all work together to get a meetup group set up in every county in Iowa it would lay the seeds for Ron Paul to WIN every district in Iowa!
If you want to help with this effort you can help in the following ways:
1. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer to spread the word to your meetup and those which neighbor you.
2. I need a website for this! I can create a simple one which will just match meetups to areas in Iowa and provide resources, but I have no host! This is the first step!
3. Email me any ideas and experience on how to implement this. I have good templates for letters and phone guidelines, but more are always appreciated!
