"we need to step away from Ron Paul the person and fight for Ron Paul the message."
Not necessarily. It depends.
My new signs (hi, Granger!) have instigated heated debate with a few romney supporters. They are very passionate about taxes and jobs and couldn't understand why as a registered Republican I opposed romney. I have invited them to our next meeting.
Most dems don't want to hear Ron's name. Therefore I stick to issues such as ndaa, war and war funding, and issues that won't close doors. I leave my R registration, and parties in general, out of it.
There is no one way. It is important to evaluate and use whatever method will succeed. After enough trust, time and interest, hit 'em hard :-)
