Not pleased with Maccain? Demand your money back

June 24, 2008

If you gave to the Republican Party last year, you can demand your money back. Call Republican National Committee and demand a full refund.

If you gave to any Senator or Congressman in the past year, call their office and demand a full refund:

Money seems to be the one thing our politicians understand.

Obama Supports FISA Legislation

June 21, 2008

For the Obama supporters, this hurts::

 Alex Brandon/Associated Press)

My email response to Obama’s latest fundraising email:

I want my money back that I donated to you.

Thanks for caving to Republicans and supporting this FISA “compromise.” I thought you taught the constitution and were going to protect it?

I am not even going to vote for you in the general election anymore, I regret spending many days volunteering for you, I regret waiting 8 hours in the February cold to be first in line to hear you speak, and I am going to throw out the sweater and stickers I have with your name on it.

The hope for change you once inspired is completely gone – you are just like all the other pathetic, unprincipled, weak, capitulating, gutless, spineless Democrats. Enjoy your move to the republican center now that you’re the nominee. You have lost me as a supporter and probably even as a Democrat.

Ron Paul: We must not give, up, we are never giving up!

June 21, 2008

please read now – from evan cutler at the meetup posted below.
http://ronpaul.meetup.com…

Greetings Teammates!

I know there has been a lot of frustrating and letting go through out the Ron Paul activist community since Dr. Paul’s announcement of “closing the official campaign.” But as Dr. Paul said, on his video subsequently posted Campaign for Liberty?Phase II (see http://www.youtube.com … ) “we must not give, up, we are never giving up!”

He says in that video, “Now, does this purely regulatory change mean that our goals at the National Convention in Saint Paul, Minnesota in September have changed? Not at all! We must take back the Republican Party. We need to take back America for our ideals. Our delegates and our alternates will still attend the convention?.” In the recording he goes on to say more yes. He is more pessimistic than I about the potentials there.

But I put it Dr. Paul directly when he called me on Sunday afternoon, just as I put it to him we when last talked in March?right before I committed to this project.

I asked, “Dr. Paul, if by some miracle we do win you the Republican nomination for the Presidency at that convention in September, will you accept it, and are you still willing to run for and accept the Presidency of the United States?”

Dr. Paul answered me without hesitation, that his answer was yes, he would accept, though he found it hard to see happening with just 46 delegates.

I told him that this project has two goals:
1) to go for that long shot, to try to win that miracle of a nomination from the delegates. The fact is our lawyers tell me, even with the end of the “official campaign” the law presents no reason that the delegates can not change their mind and select Dr. Paul if they want. They can indeed unbind themselves according to the rules, by sitting out votes en mass. It’s my understanding this was done my Missouri in 2004?where they sat out one round, and thus unbound themselves.
2) to educate the delegates on the host of issues that concern us. The GOP delegates and alternates, by and large, are the very movers and shakers that dominate the party right now. They already have power, and instead of trying to vanquish them, all we do to show them the reasonableness and need for adopting our positions, can only make our challenge that much easier. The result we want is really no less than the return of recognition to our Natural, Inalienable Rights and respect for the Constitution. We want an end to theft and illegal war, an end to government sanctioned torture, a return of habeas corpus, a Congress, Judiciary, and Executive that follow the law.

Dr. Paul supports both of these goals, though he has little faith in the first one. This project is not his idea, but the fact is, there is no other project right now with more potential to make goal number one, above, a reality. It’s a no-lose proposition. By the end of this project, we will have educated 4,600 elite Republicans on what’s important. Some of them with open their eyes?we do not know how many, but some. And we will continue to share the same videos online with the world.

I told Dr. Paul point blank that I would continue to champion this unless he told me, Evan, please stop. To the contrary, he didn’t see how it could hurt, just as long as I made it clear it wasn’t his project.

What a blessing and an honor to me, to get two calls yesterday, on Father’s day. One from my own father, and one from Ron Paul?two quiet and humble men I greatly respect.

We are never going to quit. I’m in this project at least until September, when I go as a National Alternate for Ron Paul myself, and will get to witness firsthand if the miracle for which we work and strive will manifest!

Remember, there is a lot of change going on in our world. My own sense is that the economic problems in the US and world will be far worse by September. People will be demanding change more and more. By then the Republican Party will likely understand that if it goes ahead as planned and chooses McCain, then it’s really just choosing Obama, because McCain is not what America wants.

We are the only ones in America who will be lobbying the delegates like this. It’s never been done on this kind of scale, from the grassroots. No one will know if we will succeed until we’ve first tried.

We’ve raised over $3,000 of the $90,000 needed, and donations are starting to pick up again. I hope each of you will reach out to the meetups and other Ron Paul groups in your state to spread the word that the National DVDs for Delegates Project is real and continuing. We need just $2,000 more in donations before I will commit to hiring the editor to start production on the first DVD. It could be ready for mailing within 10 days of that. In the meantime we have many of the delegate lists we need, and are actively working to get the others.

Wednesday, I hope many of you will join us for a teleconference planning our teams for deciding the content of our next three DVDs. We are on a tight deadline now, and I really need those of you who can, to pick up a piece of responsibility and help with making this all happen.

Strengthened by whatever measure of success we find, we will continue, I hope, with DVDs for Congress, and DVDs for Judges. We will provide and education for our nation’s power-brokers they have obviously missed.

Please spread the word. We need each state to contribute $20 for each National Delegate and Alternate they are sending to the GOP convention. It is a simple formula. If your state has 50 national delegates and 50 national alternates, that is 100 times $20, or $2,000. That is very little for what we give. One wealthy contributor or 20 less wealthy ones per state, and it’s paid.

Please take the time and send word to your activists and supporters to send your state’s share of donations today. Go to www.dvds4delegates.com and click DONATE today; there are also instructions for mailing in checks, plus my resume, or Treasurer’s resume, and a project budget. Start getting your state ready to accept the DVDs and send them to your own delegates, and pick volunteers to adopt the delegates and in a friendly way urge them to watch their DVDs and discuss them. We need to learn what works and what does not, so we can adjust the content for our final DVD.

Well that’s enough for one email,

Thanks all, for your support.

WHY RON PAUL MADE THE MOST BRILLIANT MOVE IN POLITICAL HISTORY

June 19, 2008

For those of you or others you know of who think so, you’ve been duped like the rest of the MSM…. What he has done is Beyond brilliant!!! Let me show you some points…

fund raising…. he can now raise more money (even from prior maxed out donors..they can now donate more money ..I believe its like $5000 per year)

money allotment…. now he can at his discretion donate/campaign for or place ads for anyone he believes can join him in congress or the senate…so lets say that his organization helps 3-5 people get elected this November to the congress…(we just multiplied Ron Paul’s voice by 5X!!!– imagine what we can accomplish now!!!)

unique campaigning.. he can still do rally s, speaking events, book signings, travel to State Conventions and speak(Romney is, and so is Huckster..), this can still help us the grassroots assist him in getting more delegates to his growing numbers….

expand his organization…he only had around 60,000 people in his email database during his campaigning for PRES. now in about 4 days he has close to 60,000 already!! With his goal being over 100,000 by September…Lets say he gets like 150,000 or 200,000 people on his email list by September….At that point you could yield so much influence that people will treat him differently.

Power & Influence….imagine 200,000 people or more in his new organization..calling a group of Senators on a committee to pass some new legislation–emailing, faxing, etc…..NO SINGLE CONGRESSPERSON HAS THAT MUCH POWER IN CONGRESS RIGHT NOW!!! (or 200,000 people chip in 20.00 to elect a new Senator or governor…raising 4 million dollars in 24 hrs!!! NOW THATS SOME POLITICAL POWER!!!

He can still accept the nomination for the President… while accomplishing all of the above….now who is brilliant, who is not dropping out??? Answer: RON PAUL

BTW….do you know of any politician who has ever made such a brilliant political move as Ron Paul??

PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO ALL MEETUP GROUPS, WEBSITE FORUMS, AND EMAIL LISTS….SPREAD THE WORD…PEOPLE NEED TO BE ILLUMINATED ON THIS TOPIC IMMEDIATELY!!!

Kentucky State Convention Debacle

June 19, 2008

Well, Kentucky had its State Convention yesterday, if you want to call it that. We lost all votes 300-225 and were not allowed to speak. There were only 525 delegates out of 2,627 allotted. The first motion we made on the rules was ruled out of order and the sergeant at arms came and confiscated all of the mircophones and stood in front of the podium. Rank and file McCain supporters were also denied a right to speak at the state convention. Delegates stood up trying to voice their opinions with point of orders, clarification, priviledge, but the three hundred voted to pass all motion;eventhough, they did not have the required 2/3 to close debate.

Debate was not allowed and people were threaten with physical violence to be thrown out of the room or the building. Everyone was courteous and the first person to make a motion on the rules cmte. report was called out of order and the second person who was recognized to speak was threatened to be thrown out. (This was before she was even able to make a motion.) Efforts were made after the microphones were confiscated to get the chair to recognize delegates, but were ignored. Then, delegates stood up to appeal the chair’s decision and were ignored. The final straw came when a motion was made to remove the chair, but that was ignored and the motion to call the question on the rules cmte report was pushed through. Steve Robertson the Chairman of the Kentucky Republican Party does not have want to hear from rank and file delegates/supporters even if they agree with them.

A teacher asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans

June 18, 2008

A teacher asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans.

Not really knowing what an Obama fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny.

The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different.

Little Johnny says, ‘Because I’m not an Obama fan.’

The teacher says, ‘Why aren’t you an Obama fan?’

Johnny says, ‘Because I’m a Republican.’

The teacher asks him why he’s a Republican.

Little Johnny answered, ‘Well, my mom’s a Republican and my dad’s a Republican, so I’m a Republican’

The teacher asks, ‘If your mom was a moron and your dad was an idiot, what would that make you?’

With a big smile, Little Johnny replies, “‘That would make me an Obama fan”.
