Advice For the Candidates
The Chicago Flame student newspaper for the UIC campus, ran an article on young voters and the upcoming primaries which prompted the following comment by Dan Warner:
Just a note to all presidential candidates (except Ron Paul), college students are smart and open to new ideas. How to run a campaign that targets young people :
1 - Get a clue. People are disgusted with their government. Wake up and realize this, you are part of the problem.
2 - Grow a pair. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Don't waffle and flip-flop, we don't respect that.
3 - Always tell the truth. If you have a problem with this read number two above. We are sick of lies and we can tell when you are lying, your mouth moves.
4 - Have some new ideas already. 'Stay the course' doesn't cut it... Didn't 2006 teach the Republicans a lesson? Oh, the Democrats are no better because they have done ZERO. Let's have some dialog and ideas shall we?
5 - Never EVER back down. Ron Paul knows this and this is why he 'has a pair' and we respect him even if we don't agree with everything he says.
Fact is, nobody out there (except for Ron Paul) has a clue, has a pair, tells the truth, and has real ideas that he NEVER backs down from. This is why we support him and this is why this election is going to be a huge surprise, especially for Ron Paul (since he will be elected).
I urge all of you students to get a clue, grow a pair, seek truth, listen to new ideas, and when you have found a candidate fight with every fiber of your being to get them elected, especially if that candidate is Ron Paul.
