Welcome Justine Lam

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

RonPaulBlog.com would like to welcome its newest contributor, Justine Lam.

Justine was the eCampaign director for Ron Paul 2008, and played a critical role in the campaign’s unprecedented success harnessing the Ron Paul grassroots online and raising money online.  Justine was also recently named a Rising Star by Politics magazine:

 Prior to her role on Republican Rep. Ron Paul’s presidential campaign, Justine Lam had never worked for a politician-and she’s not sure she ever will again. “It was about the ideas and the message from the get-go,” she says. After college, Lam spent a few years in the non-profit world. She met Paul in 2004, while she worked at George Mason University’s Institute of Humane Studies. Looking back, did she ever envision herself working for a candidate even then? “Never, ever, ever, never,” she says firmly. But Paul was a different kind of politician, and Lam says he spoke to her political philosophy. As the campaign’s second hire, she was tasked with setting up most of the traditional campaign infrastructure, but in her free time she would scan the social networking sites and read the blogs. “He had a lot of support online, and it only made sense to use that.” Lam developed online strategies that encouraged supporters to network and raise money outside of the campaign’s website. The result: a record for the most money ever raised by a candidate online in a single day, and arguably the most successful netroots campaign in political history. Lam says she’s been approached by the Republican National Committee and other GOP groups inquiring about her post-Ron Paul plans. “Something has to really appeal to me emotionally for me to do it,” she says.

As someone who worked with Justine, I know I’m looking forward to reading her insights.

Friday, July 13th, 2007

For some time now I’ve felt as though I haven’t been able to give this site the attention it deserves. For example when I did some traveling recently the site didn’t have any new posts for a full 9 days… not acceptable. (I was fortunate enough on my travels to meet Ron Paul and hear him speak multiple times at Freedom Fest in Las Vegas…. more on that later.)

To fix this problem I’ll be adding some co-bloggers so that we can really get this blog going full tilt, supporting Ron Paul and spreading his message of freedom and peace.

[I'd also like reader's thoughts on the current blog design, which I'm considering changing. So in the comments let me know what you think of the current one column design.]

Message from Ron Paul

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

Dear friend,

A few days after the GOP presidential debate was held at the Reagan Library, a gentleman called my campaign office while driving to his local DMV office. He said, “I have never voted in my life. I’ve also never heard of Ron Paul until seeing him in the debate. I’m calling to tell you that I’m on my way to register to vote for the first time, so I can vote for Ron Paul!”

That debate really put my campaign into the national spotlight. For those who have followed me over the years, my message of freedom and limited government is familiar. But for an unknown number of people, this message is new.

And that’s the exciting part of the Ron Paul 2008 campaign…and why I need your help.

We need your help to introduce the Ron Paul message to millions of Americans for the first time. But it will take money to do that.

For example, I will have a second major opportunity to reach out to new people tonight during the nationally televised (Fox News) GOP presidential debate in South Carolina. But that opportunity cost us, and each of the other candidates, $25,000.00. For the campaigns that have millions of dollars in the bank, paying the $25,000.00 fee was easy to do. But for us, it was a major expense.

The enthusiasm for my campaign for president is real…and it’s building. And we are working overtime to keep it going.

Help me introduce my message, our message, of freedom and limited government to millions of Americans for the first time.

Please make a contribution today. You can contribute online or download a printable form by going to https://www.ronpaul2008.com/forms/contribute.cfm

The enthusiasm is real and it’s building. Help us keep it going. Contribute today.

Thank you!

Congressman Ron Paul
