Ron Paul's campaign faces major benchmark in Iowa Straw 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 this Saturday.

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.
3. You.

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 expensive.

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 momentum.

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 donation.

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.

See the ads and make a donation. Go to http://www.ronpaul2008.com.

Thank you!

Kent Snyder
Chairman, Ron Paul 2008

I don't see it as irrational Paul hate. I do see that you don't take him seriously. Nothing unusual there. I just wanted a good case for literally "stuffing ballots" as opposed to just being a certain demographic that looks bigger than it may be.

I think he has pretty much tied his chances to getting the Republican nomination, as I know he intends to run for congress as a Republican. (Never heard of somebody running for congress as a Repub, and president as an independent.)

you can give us the lecture on internet vs. reality as soon as you outgrow the "wrestling is real" Mindset.

There's also a really huge Ron Paul billboard in downtown Des Moines that I have to look at every day on the way to work.
