Open Letter to the Ron Paul Community

Okay, Ron Paul supporters... it's time for an intervention. You've been running wild at the seams for the last few months and someone needed to sit you down and let you know what you're up against. It's not going to be an easy road, but you've done marvelous work with what you have so far. The good news is that you're going to inch up in the polls more and more. The bad news is that it's not going to make the difference. Ron Paul is going to lose and lose badly. That is, unless you change your ways a bit...

First, a little about me. For better or for worse, you can classify me as a political operative. I'm young, but I've had pretty lengthy experience in Republican campaign politics. Primarily in the southeast, I've managed, consulted, and volunteered on nearly 20 campaigns, with the vast majority for federal candidates (ie U.S. House, Senate, and Presidential campaigns). I've consulted with a couple of international political operations. And as of now, I'm a senior director at one of the largest and well-established political technology firms in the nation (also the reason why I'm not officially involved with any of the Presidentials right now). So, not to toot my own horn or anything, but I'm pretty confident in what I'm talking about here.

I should also mention that I'm a huge fan of Ron Paul... a contributor at that (which I rarely do because of public reporting requirements on the campaigns).

But in watching and following the Presidential campaign unfold, I'm deeply worried that the Ron Paul campaign will go the same route as the Howard Dean's of election-day past. In fact, it's a very real possibility that Ron Paul = Howard Dean 2.0. That's not to say that the Paul community shouldn't take a hard look at the challenges facing them commit to avoiding the same traps that the Dean's of the world have already exposed.

So, to present my thoughts in the most digestible and compelling way possible, I give you...


Five lessons the Ron Paul community MUST learn between today and the first primaries:

5: Calm the hell down
First off... don't do this:
(the first 1:30 of this video)

It freaks people out. Chill out with the protest-style chants, and the Revolutionary costumes, and the CFR talk, and the 9-11 was an inside job talk, and whatever else it is. It's turning off the voters.

Yes, I know that its fun. And in the past, the bombastic presence was needed just to get the exposure. But people are aware of the campaign, and now is the real chance to convince voters. You have to remember that you're not catering to yourselves anymore. Once you hit campaign politics, the nature of what you're doing is taking someone who does not support your candidate, and convincing them do otherwise. That means directly marketing to them, where they are at, without turning them off in the process. Remember, your average primary Republican voter is not 20-something year old iPod user who dreams of an end to the war on drugs solely so he can pick up his bud from the corner store. You're dealing with moms and pops, church goers, the elderly, soccer moms, NASCAR dads, etc. The more to speak to them at their level, the better it will be for the Paul campaign.

4: Stop fudging about or discounting the polls
No, I'm not talking about the "survey-spamming" that the pundits allege. That's all fun and games that, in the end, will have no bearing on the elections, one way or another. I'm talking about here is the tendency for supporters to see a new poll come out that has Ron Paul in the low single digits, and immediately exclaim that the poll is biased or inaccurate.

Let me say this once. For the most part, pollsters are professional and competent and stake their name on the accuracy of their polls. They've spent a lot of time and money on getting the formula for administering a political poll just right. They continuously tweak and modify their methodology to account for changes in the demographic. And they double and triple check their work before they put it out there under their banner. Everything you can think up that may invalidate poll numbers, they've already thought about it... 10 times over. Bottom line here is that when a good, independent poll results are released, chances are, it's closer to the truth than to fiction.

So, if you see Ron Paul polling in single digits within a month of the first primary, then you need to realize that, Yes... less than 10% of voters in that area support Ron Paul. Don't wait for a rush of new voters that the pollsters are missing because of cell phones or what have you. They're not there. They didn't come out for Dean, they didn't come out for Kerry (over Bush of all people)... they are not going to come out for Ron Paul at the last second. As Hunter S. Thompson best put it after the 2004 elections... "The young bastards have let us down again." And they will do it again, I promise you.

3: Money (for better or for worse) is the key to mainstream acceptance
For those of you who hate the influence that money has in politics... join the club. We all do. But for those of you who do not admit that it's here to stay and is a way of life, stop wasting everyones time.

You need to contribute to the campaign. You absolutely need to... especially before the September 30th deadline. I can't begin to explain how important it is for the Paul campaign to show a healthy fundraising quarter to the media. It drives everything... from media coverage, to more support, more donations (people donate to a winner), and more advertising when it counts.

The Paul campaign has proven themselves to be frugal and smart about the dollars they've raised so far. It looks like they are saving it for when it really matters. And that's a good thing... it means that your dollars will be well spent. There is no reason NOT to give right now. If you haven't contributed whatever you can, then you might as well support another candidate.

2: Time to go offline
I don't even have to mention how great the internet is. But, for the vast majority of us, you can blog, survey-spam, youtube, podcast, SecondLife, and twitter yourself to death and still not make a difference in this election. While the internet is a great vehicle for fundraising and media distribution during a general election, during the primaries, it's all about reaching out and talking to potential voters. Please continue to use the Internet to help organize, fundraise, and share information... but simply understand that the internet itself will not win an election. Knock on doors, Knock on doors, Knock on doors (and let the campaign handle mass communications over radio and TV).

1: Talk (literally talk) to the SuperVoters
First, a "SuperVoter" in the canvassing world is defined as an individual who has voted in a particular election three (or more) consecutive times. So, if you are looking towards the NH Presidential Primary, a SuperVoter is someone who has voted in the last three NH presidential primaries (04, 00, and 96). These special individuals are the holy grail of grassroots canvassing and direct mail.

Why, might you ask?

Well, play out the numbers. A newly registered voter has, lets say a 50% chance of voting in an upcoming election (It's actually much smaller, but I don't remember the exact numbers). Now, when you compare that with a SuperVoter, who consistently has a 90%+ probability of voting in said election, it's obvious who you should waste your time on. It's the SuperVoters who matter. Believe me. You convert a SuperVoter to Ron Paul and that's easily worth a $500 contribution to the campaign. And also remember that voters (especially SuperVoters) are pretty likely to encourage their family and friends to vote the same way. SuperVoters usually have friends who are also SuperVoters. Get my drift?

You can get lists of SuperVoters to contact from the official campaign. If they don't have the records to give to you A) I'd be very very surprised and B) You can get them from the VoterListsOnline.com service (Disclosure: VoterListsOnline.com is a service from the company I work for, but this is not intended as a plug. Just earnest advice). You'd need someone from the official campaign to vouch for you in order to gain access, but from there, you can make a small selection of voters, purchase the list (for the campaign), and begin to contact the right voters.


So, there you have it. My two cents what the Ron Paul campaign can do to gain real traction in the upcoming months. Fortunately for him, it's already started to happen. But there's much much more to be done. Until then, I'll see you in January.

But seriously, great post. I hope it gets a lot of attention. Send it to the campaign or "Ron Paul Rox" websites maybe?

Thanks for the post!

Although, I'm one of the young people who "let you down" during the last election, but that's because I didn't see a candidate who cared about liberty. Now that the Republican field is open again, there's actually some semblance of choice.

CHOICE. Freedom of choice!

Wow, I just had to reflect on that. Damn straight, I'm voting for Ron Paul. And so are my friends. One is a high school math teacher and still worried about seeing an end to the Department of Education, but I'm working on him.

Thanks again. Go Ron Paul!

Drive by sandbag piece. You can try suppress the truth and the enthusiasm, but we are not longer, as conservatives, going to take the GOP garbage anymore. The GOP needs changing, you are LOSING EVERYTHING! Here you are saying how you are a GOP insider, yet it took Karl Rove to keep the GOP Presidency and you **lost** the house and the senate.

I'd rather be in a grassroots movement with engergy and take our marching orders and sane economic policy from a libertarian-constitutionalist, than a cult of death and debt and preemptive war and closet homosexuality and hypocrisy. 9 trillion debt. 850bn deficit. 2 Wars. Iran. Inflation M3 @ 12.25 trillion. Choice 1: DEM: A tax and spend gun grabber that doesn't like war so much Choice 2: GOP: A tax and spend gun grabber that loves War.

This needs to be said over and over. People can show their enthusiasm just by showing up and donating (as heavily as possible). The talk of CFR and 9/11 does need to end. That isn't a campaign issue to the majority of Americans... sorry, it's the truth. You can see a noticeable backlash from some potential voters and the MSM whenever there is talk of conspiracy.

I've donated as much money as I've been able to. I want Dr. Paul to win. We all have to do our part.

Become a delegate if possible.
Most importantly, VOTE!

RON PAUL 2008!

Individuals obviously react differently to crowd response. The rock star reception that Dr. Paul receive at events (San Francisco, Seattle, Salt Lake City) is very impressive. If some people are put off, what about people who find it amazing (CBC TV in Utah, certainly did). Enthusiasm is fine by me. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, never seen before and probably won't ever again. It has a life of its own and the past may not be an indicator of how it will play out. Howard Dean ain't no Ron Paul. IMHO Albert Meyer

Why is it necessary to attack the integrity of each other? Everyone has a piece of the truth. Mr. Washington does have a valid point: Loud, boisterous behavior does drive away conservative voters.

I was at the Texas Straw Poll so I could cast my vote for Ron Paul, and I saw first hand how Ron Paul's supporters were turning off the voting delegates (voting was limited to people who had actually participated in party politics in the past 7 years--which goes to show why it pays to stay involved).

Like it or not, the reliable voters in the R party tend to be a quiet, reserved bunch and are not impressed with loud tactics. A respectful, but well-spoken approach is much more effective. You always got to keep your audience in mind.

An 'open' primary is different, because anyone can vote, but whenever voting is limited to delegates, you got to remember to tone it down, use less emotion, and more logic.

And for those of you who keep saying we must drop the talk of the CFR, *you* are the ones who need to wake up. Try this short video for a primer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuBo4E77ZXo

I think the author makes a good point about the chanting. It is the loud chanting of "Ron Paul", in particular, that could turn people off. I know because for the last few weeks it has turned me off and I'm a fervent supporter. The repetitive "Ron Paul, Ron Paul" chant sounds cultish and militant. I know it's fun and we love Ron Paul, but to others it sounds almost frightening. If we must chant (sigh), chant the message (liberty) and not the name of our hero.

Hey this is for Amber, He is a good way to get an American and a Patriot in the WH. Someone who supports Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Show me any canidate on either side that has supported constituitional values.

I am an Honarably discharged Veteran of the United States Navy. In the oath I swore and all those above me have sworn the same, we will defend the CONSTITUTION of the United States from enemies foreign and domestic. If anyone truly thinks about what that says, they will understand why we have to stop choosing to be divided by politcal rhetoric from both the democrats and republicans. If they hold a politcal office they swore this same oath and should be obligated to do so in word and in deed.

Now to everyone else, we need to stop bickering among ourselves on what is best and focus on helping Ron Paul to get elected. Don't you think that all the other canidates would love to see our house divided on such petty issues. Hell Yeah they would because they are scared of what the future holds for them (if and) WHEN he becomes President. I am a huge supporter of the grassroots movement and I believe everything about the lies of 9/11, the CFR, Bohemia Grove, WACO (for those of you who supported the guy who was in office when those poor folks were masaquered), not to mention the attack on the WTC the same day as the initial assault on WACO which just disappeared in the minds of 99.99% of all Americans. Yet with all this stated, and my hot tempered, redheaded, COCKY (Chinese Zodiac) personality to contend with, I agree that we need to tone our approach to meet the needs of those we are seeking to bring over to our canidates camp.

When I talk to other Punk Rockers (a movement not to be underestimated in this election, when have they ever supported a politician) like myself, I am F@#$ING hardcore and intense as hell, because they need to hear that this man is speaking to the masses and we need to get out and support him with our VOTE not just screaming "RON PAUL, RON PAUL", at the Capital building steps to passers-by. However, when I am at lunch with my employer (a democrat, because that is what she has always been), I am very professional. She is a woman of great wealth and influence. To get her to support Ron Paul does not involve the same tactics by any means. She despises the man sitting in the White House (I don't agree with his title, He stole it and not from the democrats, but from America) and most of the Republican Party because of him. To win her to our canidate I just state all of the relevant info necessary. The war (he is the only canidate that wants to end this thing), reform of the office he will hold (A truly strong man would resist the temptation to steal power for himself, watch some of his intervies from 1988), taxes, healthcare, etc. She sees the truth and will be supporting RON PAUL.

In the end the most important thing is to focus on getting this man into office by any means neccessary. Whether it is on the streets or in the office, let's just know how to discern whom we are talking to and the approach needed to win them to Ron Paul. Remember, he has to win the primaries First, or we can all just throw in the towel (THE SURVIVOR of 9/11, was he in the buildinig, would just love it).

Register to VOTE in the Republican Primaries, Vote, and get as many people to Register and Vote as well. Most states are closed primaries to some degree. Register now, today, don't put it on a list. Do you need info how to register? Where to register? This is our duty as Americans!!!!! Get people to those polls and make sure they can VOTE!

OK!! Here is my take for what it's worth. I'm not a campaign guru but I must tell you how I see it while you are still free enough to disagree with me out loud.
I've been doing political research for 15 years and I've hated the choices that we been given as candidates, up til now!
Sir, This is not a conventional campaign with the traditional bells and whistles, or have'nt you heard? We are grassroots. Just what does that mean... We are Professors, teachers, historians, nuclear physicist, rocket scientist, communications experts, soldiers, pilots, grey haired grannys, web developers, members of the Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines, Pastors of many different faiths, actors, lawyers, people in the music industry, contractors, construction workers, administrative assistants, architechs, democrats, Independants, Constitutionalist, Republicans, Moms, Dads and students. These are the professions of the people I have met personally, that support Dr. Paul. I agree that everyone should be extremely generous to Dr. Paul's campaign. They need it. But please keep working and pushing yourselves to the limit. Don't allow your spirits to be broken. You are free to expose corruption and educate people. I firmly believe we should know our audience and above everything, get the vote even if that means keeping some things off of the tabe. Getting Dr. Paul elected will give us the tools we need to end the tyranny. Name recognition and having his message heard is crucial. I think we can accomplish this best by selling our own credibility before we proceed with trying to sell them Dr. Paul. If we are dressed neat, we smell good, we speak well and don't become arrogant or too forceful, we will be received much more often than if we fall short on any of those attributes. The message must be heard. Learn it. Be passionate and warm, caring and kind, but be sure of yourself and the words you deliver. Work hard everyday and set small goals for yourself. How many people can you reach today? Can you hand out the pushcards in your neighborhood? Can you find the telephone numbers of Radio talk show host in your area and call them to talk about Ron Paul? How many signs can you make in a week? Find a place to put one up every day. Keep it up all of you grassroots supporters of freedom. I will.
Stay Vigilant,
Amanda Moore

I am a 48 yr old republican of 30 yrs. I can tell you that this man who gave us this open letter is correct to a tee. I am an avid Ron Paul supporter, but would really encourage the people who are supporting our candidate Ron Paul to leave off the conspiracy theories and the CFR speech. Though these things may be true, we will not be able to get our candidate in office to change these things if we cannot "let Dr. Paul do the talking" and we supporters just do what we should do and that is to "SUPPORT" by getting out in the community and passing out slim jims, answering questions and giving away anything that we are able to in order to "SUPPORT" our candidate for the next president of the United States...Dr./Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. Thank you.

Great article and advise. I believe that most of what you are saying is true. But I think that you may not completely understand that this is a Revolution without blood, and I think we are substituting shouting for shooting and it has the same effect. The Patriot Act has been implemented by the local town I happen to be currently residing in Country Club Hills, IL. I was trying to politely hold up a Ron Paul sign on a street corner the other day and was actually told by a rapidly arriving police officer that it was ILLLEGAL to display or even HOLD a sign in this town. Now you can imagine what is going to happen to this town on paint the town Ron day. But I am appalled at the rapid loss of freedoms to the point where I am EXTREMELY ANGRY at the apathy of our citizens and will continue to try and wake them up with chanting until it becomes apparent that they need to do their homework and check candidates out for themselves.

I know that I have not been online as much lately as I am in a large sign phase of the campaign where the undecideds need to know that RP is an option that they should check out because I'm seeing his name "everywhere" (seeing his name at least 5 times on different venues)

You know what, I get really tired of hearing what all these "experts" know about winning an election.

Ron Paul is not the typical candidate. Ron Paul's campaign cannot succeed following the rules and the trends and the "way you do things."

No one thought the Revolution of 1776 would succeed either. They thought our declaration of independence was a joke.

Don't expect Paulites like me to lose our zeal anytime soon. And I already know you're not going to admit you were wrong, even if Ron Paul does win.

Thank you for this much-needed wake-up call. I think your message is taking root in the online groups, but I also see a nefarious "insurgency" of people posing as RP supporters and acting like complete lunatics. A few have been "outed", but they'll just continue their charade elsewhere in an attempt to degrade RP supporters in the eyes of the media and public.

There isn't much that can be done other than letting people know about it. As you said, MONEY and BOOTS on the ground are the keys to real growth--and I am one of the people that needed to hear this. Thanks.

Stop the conspiracy talk?? Well you better send this advice to Dr. Paul himself, then, because he mentions the CFR, the WTO, the UN, NAFTA, and about 20 other conspiracies in just about every one of his speeches and just about every debate he's been in.

Maybe its time to stop worrying about how you think people are percieving us and instead worry about speaking the TRUTH, and let the chips fall were they may. If Ron Paul ever worried about scaring off supporters because of his "radical" ideas, he'd be just another pathetic politician like all the rest.

And to even put Ron Paul in the same sentence as Howard Dean is an insult to Ron and every one of his dedicated supporters. If you can't see the monstrous difference between the two campaigns, then you're simply not nearly as bright as you think you are.

Calm down? Yeah, right. You want calm reserved supporters - go support Rudy or Mitt, and leave us alone.

First thanks for the advice I know I will be taking it to heart. (except the go off-line part, I live in a small town - pop 600 - in SD 30+ miles from Sioux falls, and this is the most effective use of my time - but I will do some door knocking and sign waving there.)

Let's stop killing the messenger here folks. Williams is a friend, a supporter, and is honestly trying to help us. If we have any brains at all, we will:


That voterlistonline.com link is worth a million dollars all on it's own. Tell your meetup groups to get plugged into that. You want web 2.0? That's it right there my friends. (and no, I don't work for them)

Mr. Williams, I do wish to point out a problem with the plain-old telephone surveys (POTS)

They have had a terrible track record so far. Some examples: (I'm not even talking about Ron Paul, but other R candidates.)

McCain Vs Huckabee in Iowa for straw poll. ABC POTS had them tied for 8% going in. The real results were vastly different for each, and well outside the MoE for both of them.

Texas POTS had Duncan Hunter in the basement, and Giuliani on top. Actual straw poll results - just the opposite. lack of showing up was not a factor, as F. Thompson did very well in the straw poll, and didn't show up either.

MI straw poll results also were 180ยบ off from the POTS. Giuliani is supposed to have 30% support among GOP base - yet he can't break 11% in the straw poll of the same group.

All three of these straw polls were GOP activists and "likely" GOP voters - almost by definition - same as the groups the POTS are supposedly calling.

While professional polls might be accurate closer to the election, right now it is just name recognition. (I'm sure this is one reason why you limited your advice to "within a month of the first primary")

Also, I'm not certain we really have "independent polling" Check out this report from Miami. (read the comment from the fellow who tried to answer Ron Paul in the poll and was told he would be listed as undecided.)

Your argument makes sense, but I disagree about the chants, costumes and enthusiasm. I find these videos to be encouraging. The enthusiasm draws attention, and motivates the "20-something year old iPod user who dreams of an end to the war on drugs solely so he can pick up his bud from the corner store", which incidentally, there are far more of than SuperVoters. I'm one of them. I have never voted in a primary, or even paid that much attention to politics, but now I'm a registered republican and damn strait I'm voting in this one. You can't compare Ron Paul to Howard Dean, John Kerry, Ralph Nader, Ross Perot or any modern politician. You would have to go back to Thomas Jefferson or Benjamin Franklin. When a true statesman like Dr. Paul appears on the scene, everything changes. I think Ron Paul's popularity and current chances are mostly due to the internet using young people.

I agree alot with what you have said. However, I also have been involved in campaigns for awhile (including Reagans), and I think I have a few years on you sonny :) Mainly disagree with you about polling. There is a new dynamic that hasn't been seen before in an election cycle. That is the fact that a large majority of people between 18-45 do not have landlines. I actually rid myself of those a couple years ago. In addition even older folks are now starting to drop landlines (thousands a day) just like the WWII generation - they are also dying at a rate of 1000 a day.

Last, I do see your point about dressing up in costumes, but see nothing wrong with chanting Ron Paul. If you were around when Reagan ran for office, you would have seen they did the same thing.

Just some constructive comments.

I wonder what people said about the men who wrote the constitution, or perhaps that other important document that most americans have never read (like them I will withhold my name from this comment because I know for a fact that the FUCKER in charge will do the same to me as the George of their day did to them). Were they fanatics? I bet they just calmly approached people and said golly gee folks don't you think old Georgey boy is a real jerk, and these soldiers it really stinks that they take our stuff and enjoy our women whenever they feel like it. Ohhh by gosh guys we should think about stopping them lets just not get tooo crazy!!!

FUCK THAT MAN!!!! Bet your ass they stood up!! Maybe not as vocally as some of us, but GOD DAMN it that was why they wrote the CONSTITUTION, so we would not have to live in fear for our lives as they DID, when we stand up against a tyrannical government.

If you are too blind to see the truth then just stop attacking your fellow RP supporters and VOTE in your own peaceful happy go lucky black and white plesantville little world. Those of us who are the Fanatics and cookey conspiracy theorists are taking the message to those you will never reach in your fancy car and house on the hill.

Ron Paul supports all of our beliefs!! Stop giving in to what big government wants and fighting among ourselves. You staightlaced folks take it on in the ivory towers. As for those of us on the street, in the hood, fearful of being shot in the back with rubber bullets, tasers, or beaten while face down in the ground with handcuffs around our wrists, we will bring the word of Ron Paul to those who make up a damn large silent majority.

9 out of 10 people I talk to have never voted and they come from all walks of life. These are the people we need to get to the polls. How many 18 year old high school students vote? Most I have talked to aren't even registered and don't think they will make a difference. Maybe it is just these silly kids in my town, most other places are ready to go with high school voters.

Well enough useless rambling for now I'll never make a difference anyhow, you will all just keep bickering over who is right about how to get Ron Paul elected and some fucking prick like Rudy will sit on George's throne making millions on the TransTexas Corridor (You know it is gonna stop at the red river, Texas-Oklahoma border), HAHAHAHAHA!!! What a joke?

PS: You can have my 1st ammendment, when you pry my 2nd ammendment from my cold dead hands!!!!!

You don't like the first 1:30 of that video? I love it!!!!!!!!!

Some RP supporters could do more productive things. We need to get people to REGISTER TO VOTE REPUBLICAN in those states that have closed primaries, for example. I love the energy but we need to focus it or we are lost.

If they are only calling landlines they are getting a skewed poll. But I think you would have to be crazy to get rid of your land line. Cell phones can be handy but they SUCK as far as quality goes. If I want to have a conversation, not just pass on some critical info, I will always use a real phone.
