Re: [RLC-Action] RLC Sig LIne for Ron Paul supporters (was Re: FW: YouTube Debate)
- I understand your concerns regarding impropriety and admire your integrity.
However, part of being libertarian in philosphy is that you have the right
to voice your opinion, despite the fact that it may not be the opinion of
the group you represent. I see no conflict with distributing literature for
a candidate you support, as long as you note that the RLC has not officially
endorced that candidate, and as long as it is done away from the table you
previously manned. One can be a RLC officer AND Ron Paul supporter (I
actually think one SHOULD BE both) and support for one should not prevent
you from campaining for the other at a different period in time or at a
different location. To wit: If you man the RLC table from 1:00-3:00 pm,
then you are free to hand out literature at any time prior or after that
time, and in a different location, without conflict.
At least that's my take on it.

- Hey y'all,Fred Thompson is wavering like quixotic drunk. I don't think he'll be joining the fray. He's not raising the money he expected to.I think an endorsement for Dr. Paul now is probably a good thing.Bear this in mind: if you want some additional exposure for RLC, now is the time to be "exposed". I truly believe we can absorb a great deal of new membership if the youth that currently support Dr. Paul see us as his ally. This can ALSO allow us to build on the future by both giving the new blood a baseline as well as training for future candidates and supporters.I'm not gonna wait on Fred "I'm not the President, but I play one on TV" Thompson.My 2 cents,Barry L.

I just received a request from the Miami Ron Paul Meetup for 50 RLC
brochures to distribute at the next Meetup there. I personally bring
them to the Palm Beach and Broward (Fort Lauderdale area) Meetups. I
also now sign all my Ron email with an RLC sig and we even have Ron-
oriented stories on our state website.
We don't need an endorsement to market the RLC to the Ron Paul
brigades. Seeing us in the trenches with them is the most effective
endorsement we have to offer.
