Ron Paul needs your help in the Iowa Straw Poll. THIS IS A BIG DEAL. HE NEEDS TO WIN THIS so he can get the repub nomination. Come on people, this is a really big deal, we need the help of individuals to get there. Mostly, you need to physically go to this straw poll voting thing and vote for him. And seriously guys, im sorry for being so political these days, but I've just realized that we each have so much political power if we get motivated and make shit happen. Dont just let the politicians decide whats best for you.
Here is the letter that goes through the details of the Poll.
August 7, 2007
The purpose of a political campaign is to win. To do that, you have to
constantly build momentum and reach top speed on Election Day. The Ron Paul
2008 campaign is now shifting to a higher gear. The next stop: Iowa straw poll
But before we shift gears, let's remember how our campaign was dismissed by many
at first. The "experts" didn't give us a chance. They didn't think we could
even get our engine started. What they did give us were their
inside-the-Beltway opinions why Ron Paul's campaign for freedom and
constitutional government would sputter after only a few weeks.
But the "experts" were wrong. Why?
1. The message: Freedom.
2. The man: Ron Paul.
This combination confounds the so-called experts. However, to you and me, it's
no surprise at all.
But let's get back to focusing on the future and building momentum.
The Iowa straw poll this Saturday is an important stop along the way for Ron
Paul to win the Republican nomination, and then the general election for
president. Competing in the Iowa straw poll is important, and it is also
For example, the entry fee alone is $15,000.00, which gives you the privilege of
then having to spend a bunch more. Radio and TV spots, office space, staff,
travel expenses, signs, direct mail, phone banks, campaign events, and on and
on...all add up to a lot of money...several hundred thousand dollars actually.
(Some campaigns are spending even more; much more.)
Dr. Paul and his wife Carol are in Iowa this entire week with a crew of
dedicated campaign staffers and hard-working volunteers. Their days start
before dawn and end near midnight. But that's what it takes to build the
Will you help us build the momentum?
We have produced three radio spots and a television commercial just for the Iowa
straw poll this Saturday, August 11. The purpose: get Iowans to attend the
straw poll and vote for Ron Paul. But for that to happen, thousands of Iowans
throughout the entire state will need to hear and see these ads many times, and
that will take a bunch of money.
We're already stretching our budget with the expenses I mentioned earlier, so we
don't have much left to broadcast our TV and radio ads. We only have a few days
left to introduce Ron Paul and his message of freedom and constitutional
government to Iowans from every corner of the state.
Dr. Paul and his wife Carol are on the ground in Iowa talking with folks day and
night. Help them spread their message of freedom and constitutional government
in the air by donating today.
Listen to the three radio ads and take a look at the TV spot. Then make a
During the next few days, thousands of Iowans must hear about Ron Paul and his
message -- our message -- of freedom, peace and prosperity.
Donate today. Encourage Iowans with these radio and TV ads to attend the straw
poll and vote for Ron Paul. Help us build momentum.
