Going Viral:  Ron Paul "Meetup" Groups


It is no secret that Ron Paul's campaign for President with his message of Freedom has resonated with many People, piqued their interest in the Constitution and demonstrated that the way our system of governance is working is in sharp contrast to the way it was designed to work. 

Despite this organization's prior efforts involving the production and promotion of Aaron Russo's film documentary, "America Freedom to Fascism" (which featured both Ron Paul and the work of the We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education, Inc.), many of these new Sons of Liberty do not -- as yet -- know much about the WTP organization and our profound plan to restore Constitutional Order. 

We would like to immediately change that.  

Our issues are Ron Paul’s issues. The We The People grassroots organization and the Ron Paul grassroots organization are a natural, together. Joining forces would be mutually beneficial. 

We need to reach out beyond our current support base to those that have been galvanized by Ron Paul’s vision of Liberty. During the past twelve to eighteen months, hundreds of thousands of new recruits have been through Ron Paul’s basic training and orientation. This new “Freedom Pump” has been primed! It now needs to be turned on and put to good use.

That’s our challenge. Let’s do it.

Let’s go “viral” across the Internet to reach every Ron Paul recruit with the specifics of THE PLAN to use the RIGHT OF REDRESS to bring government back under control of the Constitution. 

If we can successfully enlist this vast wave of Freedom lovers we will be well on our way to achieving the critical mass required to effectively enforce our Right of Redress. 

Meetup.com is a social networking website. It facilitates the creation of local organizations, group meetings, and communications between group members.  There are currently over 100,000 members in thousands of separate Ron Paul Meetup groups.

Let’s give it our best effort. Let’s contact the full membership of the Ron Paul "Meetup" groups and urge them to join our fight for constitutional governance carried out in decency and good order.

Action Needed Now!  Time is Critical!

We need every current WTP supporter to join every Ron Paul Meetup group in their local area and spread the news about our profound Plan.

Below you will find several "pre-designed" text messages that you can use after you join a Meetup group. The messages have been crafted to emphasize key points and provide critical web links within the word limitations enforced in the Meetup system. 

Specifically, we need you to, ASAP: 

1)  Join Meetup.  Go to http://ronpaul.meetup.com and select your first Meetup group. 

2)  Fill out your personal profile. 

Instead of using your actual personal information in your "say hello" or "introduction," consider using the following text.  Be sure to check the number of available characters in your message:

  Dr. Paul has diagnosed what ails our Republic.  It's time for the Revolution to CURE the disease without electing a single person, using PEACEFUL PEOPLE POWER. For details, click here: http://www.GiveMeLiberty.org/revolution

Be aware that some Meetup groups control their membership entry more tightly than others.  Your membership may have to be approved by the group organizer. 

Instead of uploading your personal photo -- considering using this one (V photo, w/ link)

Note you need to right-click on the photo below and first save it to your local computer.


Instead of your URL link, consider using, http://www.GiveMeLiberty.org/revolution

3)  Start a "NEW DISCUSSION" 

After joining Meetup group, you can start a "new discussion" by clicking on the "Messages" link in the left column of the Meetup pages.

When you start a new discussion, most people in the group will be automatically emailed a notice of your discussion and the subsequent responses made by members of the group.  Hopefully, your message will drive people to www.givemeliberty.org/revolution where they can learn all about the Revolution Plan. 

We suggest you use the following text for your "New message":


(TITLE)  Campaign "issues" or VIOLATIONS of the Constitution? There IS a PLAN. 

Many have been drawn to Ron Paul's vision of Freedom.  The issues at the heart of his campaign are not matters of public "policy" -- they are VIOLATIONS of the Constitution.  As such, they require solutions outside the political realm.

Fortunately, there exists a profound, yet practical Plan to move the Revolution beyond the paradigm of electoral politics to peacefully and rapidly restore Constitutional Order.

Our Constitution explicitly protects a long-forgotten unalienable Right -- an 800-year old Right -- so profound -- and so powerful -- that the Government hopes you'll never learn about it, much less use it.

Dr. Paul has diagnosed what ails our Republic.  Now it's time for the Revolution to CURE the disease.

"If money is wanted by Rulers
who have in any manner
oppressed the People,
they may retain it
until their grievances
are redressed,
and thus peaceably
procure relief,
without trusting to
despised petitions
or disturbing
the public tranquility."

Journals of the Continental Congress, 1:105-113 

4)  Contact the Meetup Group Organizer directly.

Consider making a personal plea with the Group organizer to support our Plan.  You can email him/her a copy of the text regarding the Plan and add your own comments as well.

5)  Join ALL the Ron Paul Meetups in your local area! 

Repeat as needed.

Please remember, time is short!

We need to gather many more signatures and we need more volunteers to Serve the Petitions for Redress on every member of Congress (June 30th). We also want more volunteers to become a Plaintiff in one of the eleven federal declaratory lawsuits (to be filed July 11), and commit to the "Hungering for Redress" protest fast in Washington DC (starts August 11th!)

Remember, we have a one-shot opportunity to bring our cause -- the exercise of the Right to Petition -- to the attention of the nation. It will not happen unless you add your voice and presence to the PLAN.

Please help us make the PLAN go "viral" by joining "Meetup" and spreading our message of hope. It is a bold but doable plan to non-violently restore Constitutional Order through the enforcement of the Right of Redress.
