Ron Paul for Minority Leader

With the great losses suffered by the GOP last night, it is time for new leadership to arise within the party. Ron Paul is the only member of Congress that can bring a new face to the party and a renewed energy to the Republican base. He is the only one who can bring back many of the disaffected conservatives, constitutionalists and libertarians that have left the party over the last few years.

I believe that a coordinated grassroots effort needs to begin so that supporters of Ron Paul can contact each and every Republican member of Congress and urge them to vote for Dr. Paul for Minority Leader. While there are several others in Congress who may be eyeing the position, none of them have the name recognition of Ron Paul. If, for example, Mike Pence were elected Minority Leader, only a passing reference to it would be mentioned in the news and the average person would not pay any attention to it, because while Pence is well known by political junkies he is virtually unknown outside his own district. Conversely, Ron Paul has been on the national stage. Average Americans who know little about politics know who Ron Paul is. They also know that Ron Paul does not represent business as usual, but instead represents a return to the conservatism of Reagan and Goldwater.

For this and for many other reasons, the only man to take the GOP in a new direction and repair its tarnished image is Ron Paul. I urge each and every one of you to contact as many GOP representatives as possible. Contact every major media outlet and political blog and let them know your opinion. With a strong grassroots effort, we can be victorious in our fight to restore the Republic.

I am looking for some people that can run with this and take this message viral. If you are skilled with Facebook, MySpace, etc and/or have access to the old moneybomb email lists please post here so that this can get started. We only have until January to make the impact needed. Wikipedia has a list of every newspaper in the country so that "letters to the editor" can be written. I am sure there is a good list of conservative blogs out there, and of course we need a list of congressional contacts as well. If you are able to organize all this information so that the grassroots can have a step by step targeted plan then please let me know.

AOL polls are a joke

I was reading my horoscope ... and read this ...

"jamais dit jamais" never say never

Don't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to cry,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit.
It's when things seem worse
That you must not quit.
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win, but think you can't,
It's almost a cinch that you won't.
For life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But, sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.

Nominate Ron Paul for the Minority Leader in the House
http://ideas.rebuildtheparty.com/pages/general/suggestions/6...

A Major Bump for a...

Minority Whip!

We faxed our Rep. in Congress already

asking him to nominate Dr. Paul for a new position. Let's continue as we did against the bailout. Flood them with faxes!

Bump and call to action

Where is the follow-up thread from yesterday?

Great idea

There is a buzz already on the internet about Ron Paul becoming Minority Leader. Let's keep the momentum going.

ron paul for minority leader

& a [true] ron paul republican for RNC chair.

& fast.

As it stands today no one is

As it stands today no one is challenging Boehner for the leadership positon. Paul Ryan has declined to run, and Mike Pence is seeking the Conference Chair position.

Boehner needs to be challenged and Paul is the man to do it. If you haven't contacted his office yet, please do so. Once he annouces we can then begin contacting every GOP congressman and urge them to support Paul.

I would like to see Ron Paul

publicly announce that he would challenge Boehner for that position. Then it can be a "call to action" to call, write, fax and email our Republican representatives to vote for him.

We should encourage Ron Paul to do so. Hell he ran for POTUS t o lead over 300 million, he should able lead 170ish Republicans reps. We need a true opposition voice in the House leadership and Ron Paul is the guy to do that.

Bump. I'll leave this now

Bump. I'll leave this now to you folks here. I don't have the time today or over the weekend to keep us with this thread. I hope someone can take the lead on this now. The grassroots was very successful in fundraising setting up various sites for moneybombs and blimps. I hope that someone can do the same for this.

This post

Targeted for forum sliding. Is this so unthinkable?

Can someone draft a letter that we can send out to our

~ congress-people? (I almost said Representatives-- ha ha-- as if.) I'm not very good at letter writing and it would make a great chain e-mail for people to send out.

Here's Your Letter

Dear Representative XXXX,

As you well know, the Republican Party has suffered significant defeats not only in this past election, but in the 2006 mid-term election as well. I am sure that you will agree that it is time for a change of leadership in the party and a return to the limited-government conservatism that made this party great. The party's reputation has been severely damaged and only a significant change in leadership can repair this damage with the American electorate.

This is why I am urging you to support Ron Paul for House Minority Leader. Not only does Dr. Paul represent a return to the conservatism of Reagan and Goldwater, but he is the only Republican Congressman that has been on the national stage in recent months. He has the experience to lead, he is principled and he has a legion of supporters across this country that would rally behind causes that he supports. Dr. Paul is the only Congressman that can reach out to the disaffected conservatives, constitutionalists and libertarians that have left the party in recent years. By electing Dr. Paul as Minority Leader you would be sending a message to the general voting public that the Republican Party is charting a new course for the 111th Congress.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. I sincerely urge you to support Ron Paul for this position for the sake of the party and for the good of the nation.

Sincerely,

Your Name Here

Bada

Bingo!

Dugg it !! #22

come on lets get this dugg.

Great idea, lets do waht we

Great idea, lets do waht we can!

Why is this thing not front page?

Ron Paul for house leader?! House whip!?! Is this not logical? Commonsense dictates that if we can't have the cake lets take the pie. Come on people. Get off those 9/11 conspiracies and those Zionist threads. Here is something tangible. Something we can get behind. I fear there are those among us whom's sole objective is to silence real goals and possibilities.

I had to bring this thread back from this afternoon

so let's keep it going! Thanks for all your insight SSgt!

food freedom,one seed at a time.

Dugg for Dr. Paul!

Freepers want Boehner to go

Freepers want Boehner to go too. They are pushing for Mike Pence for the spot. While I don't have too many problems with Pence his ascension to the number one position will mean nothing to the average person. 95% of the people that voted on Tuesday do not know who Pence is. And for that matter they probably did not that Boehner was the minority leader in the House.

Paul is the ONLY congressman on the GOP side of the aisle that has been on the national stage. He is the only one that can signify a real change in direction to the average voter.

Ron Paul for minority leader or whip!

the following link shows that John Boehner is seeking a return to his minority leader post. http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/11/7/uselect...

I hope we can convince Dr. Paul to go for it! I'm faxing our rep. in the morning.

When can we start this?

Looks like John Boehner is on his way out. Let's get a list of telephone number up.

Here is the link for all the

Here is the link for all the contact info.

What is the best means to reach out beyond the people that use this site? Are any of you well networked on facebook and myspace that can start a group or page on there for this?

Not just yeah

Hell, yeah!

Cavuto needs to start talking this up.

Boehner is seeking another

Boehner is seeking another term as leader, but he still needs to be elected by his colleagues. Paul can announce his intention to run for leader and challenge Boehner for the position. With enough grassroots effort behind him, Paul can defeat Boehner.

Incidentally, Boehner is the only one in leadership that has not stepped down. Blunt (Minority Whip) and Putnam (Conference Chair) have already stepped down.

Boehner needs to go, he is part of the problem not part of the solution.

By the way I was mistaken in my earlier posts. According to AP, elections for party leadership positions will take place later this month. So Paul and the grassroots need to move on this ASAP.

Ron Paul bump

How did John Boehner vote on the bailout, if he voted in favor he is out.

He voted for it twice

I made a mistake early in one of my post that he voted against it, but I look it up on C4L site and it show that he did voted for it. twice.
