As Alaska did, sending Ron Paul DVDs to all National GOP Delegates is essential for the Freedom Movement

Many of you are aware that Ron Paul officially suspended his campaign a couple of weeks ago. What many are not aware of, however, is that this campaign suspension was merely a legal formality, governing the use of Ron Paul’s campaign donations.
RON PAUL IS STILL ELIGIBLE FOR THE GOP NOMINATION.
Similar to Mitt Romney, Dr. Paul is no longer actively campaigning, but *IS* still eligible to win the GOP nomination, and WILL still have bound delegates present at the Republican National Convention in September.
The phenomenal success of Ron Paul’s delegates at this past weekend’s Nevada Republican state convention attest to how active and excited the Ron Paul movement is to elect him the GOP nominee.
The purpose of the DVDs 4 Delegates project ([link edited for length] ) is to produce a series of 4 professional-quality DVDs tailored specifically to the entire base of GOP delegates, and to send these 4 DVDs to every GOP delegate and alternate in the country. These DVDs will each be around 90 minutes long, for a total series length of about 6 hours.
Within these 4 DVDs, we will explain to the delegates:
— How the Republican Party has drifted from its original conservative principles, and why this is causing a mass exodus from this party.
— Which actions will be needed for the Republican Party to return to its conservative, Constitutional roots, and how this will strengthen the party.
— How Ron Paul is the portrait of a real conservative, and how McCain is the opposite.
— Evidence that McCain won’t be able to win the general election against Obama.
— Notification that Dr. Paul is STILL ELIGIBLE for the GOP nomination, and explanation of the delegate process (bound/unbound; there are still enough unbound delegates to elect Dr. Paul!)
— Explanation of our country’s current economic crisis, and how the bad policies and principles of both the Democrats and Neocons have brought us to this point; and what can be done to restore prosperity to our country.
— The moral and legal implications of the GOP delegates choosing to support Dr. Paul at the Republican National Convention.
— Practical advice about the workings of the national convention, and what a GOP delegate who wants to support Dr. Paul needs to do.
The DVDs won’t have any external indication that they are related to Ron Paul; rather, the DVDs will be mailed out and presented (truthfully!) as important information that the GOP delegates need to know before they vote at the national convention.
Keep in mind that there are several good reasons to educate the GOP delegates: not only do they have the power to elect Dr. Paul the GOP nominee, but these delegates are also the current and future leaders of the Republican Party. If they watch these DVDs and begin critically thinking about and questioning the neocon principles, and begin understanding why supporting freedom is crucial to this country’s future, we may see a significant change in the GOP in future years and elections. NOW is the time to reach these delegates.
After the DVDs are sent, we will have volunteers “adopting” delegates, to call them, make sure that they have watched the dvds, and answer any questions they have. We need to get to know these GOP delegates personally, for this project to have the most impact.
We have made great progress on the creative aspects of this project, but presently, DVDs 4 Delegates is seriously underfunded! We need everyone who still wants Dr. Paul to have a shot at the GOP nomination, to donate anything you can to this project:

If you make a donation, your money will be used to provide DVDs to delegates from YOUR state.
We need a total donation of $3500 from each state. At present, almost every state is extremely short of this fundraising target.
The DVDs’ content will be posted on YouTube as they are completed. However, please don’t wait until then to donate to this project.
The Ron Paul movement achieved world records in the past, when funding Dr. Paul’s campaign. Please, donate to the DVDs 4 Delegates project, and help us to fight for this last chance to educate and change the opinions of the GOP delegates to the national convention. Even a donation of $5 from each Ron Paul supporter will do a tremendous amount to help realize this important, and possibly historically significant, project. The GOP delegates aren’t going to magically change their minds on their own; we need to reach out to them NOW and communicate the importance of their role as delegates, and how the candidate they choose to elect at the national convention is a serious moral choice for them.
Thanks in advance for your help! Feel free to email me with any questions.
