I felt it is important to share some things with everyone. For those that like to check how long someone has been on the DP, my real account is 4 years, 3 weeks.
I am using this account I just created to convey some important information and I will probably use it often over the next several months as needed.
I am using the account to keep some information from our opposition. I am well known to the GOP in my state and want to keep my identity a secret to prevent giving certain factions a "heads up".
In my state there is a concerted effort against Ron Paul. You will probably respond to that by saying something like, "Yeah, tell me something I don't know."
The organizers of the county caucus I am in already have plans in place to try to prevent Ron Paul from having a fair process. Again, what else is new?
If Ron Paul supporters "win the day" they already plan on filing challenges to have the entire county delegation disqualified.
As part of the organizers strategy they have booked a room that is far too small to accommodate the numbers likely to turn out to caucus, even though larger rooms in the same place are available. They are telling their supporters to get there before the doors open so they can get into the caucus.
This information, as well as other information about their plans, I will not discuss here. I obtained my information because of my use of spies.
Anyone who has read Art of War knows there are 5 types of spies. I use all 5 types. So does the opposition. I do my best to guard against them and heed Sun Tzu's advice in how to use them.
Often I find that it is not spies that provide me information. It is the opposition themselves who make their plans against Ron Paul public and known. Good for me and bad for them.
But the opposition also benefits from the public discussion of our strategy and troop strength.
Too often I see, due to people's exuberance for our cause, excitement over some new strategy broadcast for the world to see. People talk about what they plan to do next week or how they think they can get a leg up on the opposition. Do you really think that Ron Paul supporters are the only ones reading the DailyPaul? Of course you don't.
Please, for the love of liberty and the cause of victory, STOP! Stop talking about your local plans. Stop broadcasting you are coming so the opposition can prepare for you.
I had one of the biggest successes in my state four years ago. I delivered a HUGE victory for Ron Paul. The GOP pulled out every thing they had to try to negate that victory.
The ONLY reason we had the victory was we kept our preparations a secret. We planned, we trained, we practiced, all in SECRET. Word about our plans and preparations got out a few days before our caucus/convention because of a post by one of our number on an online forum. The opposition tried to rally their people, but with such short notice they were unable to do so. If the leak had occurred a week or two sooner we would have lost and all of our preparations and work would have been useless.
This time around the opposition expects us. They have had time to prepare for us. They do not know our numbers or plans and I intend to keep it that way. Make no mistake, we WILL prevail. That is as long as no one with the knowledge of our plans lets the opposition know.
Again, the main reason I created this thread and the new account is to urge everyone here to work with their local people, and KEEP YOUR MOUTHS SHUT!
By all means, report on the opposition and their dirty tricks. When you do, make sure what you report here on DP cannot be used to thwart your own goals by tipping them off that you know their plans. And PLEASE keep your own plans out of the public view.
I selected this profile name for a reason. I will leave you with some words of advice from Sun Tzu to add to my own.
All warfare is based on deception.
Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.
What enables the wise sovereign and the good general to strike and conquer, and achieve things beyond the reach of ordinary men, is FOREKNOWLEDGE.
That is, knowledge of the enemy's dispositions, and what he means to do.
Now this foreknowledge cannot be elicited from spirits; it cannot be obtained inductively from experience, nor by any deductive calculation.
Knowledge of the enemy's dispositions can only be obtained from other men.
Hence the use of spies...
Okay, so I posted this 3 weeks ago. When I hit save things acted weird and I was sure I lost the post and due to other things that were more pressing I did not attempt to rewrite it.
So I can now tell you some things, but not everything because we are still engaged in battle and stealth is more important than ever.
Our intelligence was spot on and because of our foreknowledge, we were completely and undeniably able to thwart their plans. We knew of moles within our ranks and we used them to great effect. But it was the moles in their ranks working for us that were of the greatest benefit. Right now our opposition is looking over their shoulder and they do not know who to trust. They are even suspicious of each other.
We have now tightened our security and have limited the high level strategy to a handful of people that are above reproach. This is not being done to create a top down environment or exclude other loyal supporters. It is done strictly for information security because people like to share things with each other, especially "inside" information.
I don't blame them at all, I understand it. And because I do understand it, I am helping us all by not letting them know certain things.
I have some hardcore battle hardened soldiers on my team and we will have a massive victory very soon.
My point to all of you is to give you advice based on my successful efforts.
Plan hard. Be serious. Yes this is all fun, but it is serious business and if we take our preparations seriously we WILL win.
More important than spies and planning and strategy is ONE SIMPLE THING.
HAVE MORE PEOPLE SHOW UP FOR RON PAUL THAN THE OPPOSITION HAS SHOW UP AGAINST RON PAUL.
This is one time that having superior planning and strategy means nothing if you do not have the numbers come caucus/convention day. We MUST have 51% or more at every caucus/convention.
Many places received devastating losses for the simple reason they did not have their people show up on the day they were needed. This has to be EVERYONE'S number one priority. Just as is the case where I am, there are people making plans for Ron Paul to win where you are and they are mostly doing a good job at making those plans. It is then up to the rest of us to get butts in seats. Not just your own, but everyone you can drag with you.
If we really want Ron Paul to win, there is nothing more important to make sure we achieve that goal that turnout. It is time to light the brush fires of freedom that we keep talking about. Now is not the time to rest. Let the opposition rest while we QUIETLY amass our armies for the final push to victory. Every one of us needs to PERSONALLY find 30 people to attend their caucus/convention and make sure they show up. If we all do that, we win.
What are you willing to do for Ron Paul?
