More from the Ron Paul Campaign

This is an email I received from Jesse Benton of the Ron Paul campaign this morning.  I wanted to share it with you so you can see what is going on in the campaign, whether you’re a supporter or not. 

From:          Jesse Benton, Chief Strategist

Re:              Paul Campaign Convention Strategy

Every day, I see firsthand how humbled and encouraged Dr. Paul is to have the enthusiastic support of so many who are committed to revitalizing our country.

Let me be very clear.  Dr. Paul is NOT dropping out or suspending his campaign.

As Dr. Paul has previously stated, he is in this race all the way to the Republican National Convention in Tampa this August.

And he is deeply grateful for every resource he has been entrusted with to run an historic campaign that continues to defy all expectations.

Looking ahead, our campaign must honor that trust by maximizing our resources to ensure the greatest possible impact at the National Convention.

So while our campaign is no longer investing in the remaining primary states, we will continue to run strong programs at District and State Conventions to win more delegates and alternate delegates to the National Convention.

To this end, our campaign has several positive and realistic goals:

1)    Having recently WON Maine, we believe we can win several more states.
2)    We will win party leadership positions at both the state and national levels.
3)    We will continue to grow our already substantial total of delegates.
We will head to Tampa with a solid group of delegates.  Several hundred will be bound to Dr. Paul, and several hundred more, although bound to Governor Romney or other candidates, will be Ron Paul supporters.Unfortunately, barring something very unforeseen, our delegate total will not be strong enough to win the nomination.  Governor Romney is now within 200 delegates of securing the party’s nod.  However, our delegates can still make a major impact at the National Convention and beyond.

All delegates will be able to vote on party rules and allow us to shape the process for future liberty candidates.

We are in an excellent position to make sure the Republican Party adds solid liberty issues to the GOP Platform, which our delegates will be directly positioned to approve.  Our campaign is presently working to get several items up for consideration, including monetary policy reform, prohibitions on indefinite detention, and Internet freedom.

Finally, by sending a large, respectful, and professional delegation to Tampa, we will show the party and the country that not only is our movement growing and here to stay, but that the future belongs to us.
Dr. Paul will begin this new phase of the campaign this Friday by speaking and holding several events at the Minnesota State Convention.  He has also recently accepted an invitation to speak at the Texas Convention, and we are busy scheduling appearances around other State Conventions later this month and into June.

As Dr. Paul stated in his message yesterday, this fight is NOT over.  We will continue fighting and expanding, and “we will not stop until we have restored what once made America the greatest country in human history.”

But for Dr. Paul’s efforts in the remaining State Conventions to be successful, and to ensure we get as many Ron Paul delegates to Tampa as we can, he needs you to continue standing with him.

Along those lines, as you probably already know, the grassroots are holding a Money Bomb on Thursday, May 17.  Any money raised from that Money Bomb will go toward winning delegates and finalizing our plans for Tampa.

As those plans for the National Convention come together, we will make sure all of our delegates, whether bound or unbound, get the information and aid they need.

Your support on May 17 will also help us reach more Americans with the solutions we know can restore our nation.  Each person we add to our cause strengthens our movement for the critical work that awaits us beyond Tampa.

Dr. Paul, John Tate, myself, and the entire campaign staff know what incredible sacrifices have been made by each of our supporters.

Thank you for all of your hard work and your dedication to liberty.  Together, we will champion Ron Paul and his message in Tampa, and we will lay the groundwork for future victories.

Ok, so RP is not dropping from the race, but in the email Benton clearly stated that they know there is virtually no chance in a cold day in Hell that RP even has a chance at getting the nomination for the GOP candidate.  Furthermore, they are now just spending money spreading the word of liberty to the nation.  I agree with any candidate doing that, but I don’t agree with any candidate who is unwilling to openly condemn the Neo-Nazi or Terrorists movements.  Keep in mind that namy of RP’s supporters are groups like Storm Front, the worlds largest neo-Nazi group, and other racist socialist groups.
While I’m sure RP doesn’t really want anything to do with these people, he isn’t turning away their money or endorsements either.
So, what does this email from the RP campaign really means?  I believe it means that RP doesn’t stand a chance and is now just trying to get his message out there to as many people as he can.  He’s spending campaign money to push an agenda that is technically not his presidential campaign any longer.  They’ve admitted he can’t win… but he’s still in the race? 
Ron Paul, it’s time to get out of the race and use your influence to spread the message of liberty.  However, before you do that, you have to denounce the white supremacists and other socialist movements that support you and stop taking their money.  Otherwise, you have little creditability.
