Non-Paul Republicans And The Web

RON PAUL FOR PRESIDENT 2008 - News on Ron Paul 2008 Revolution: "The current GOP has a problem:

As Ron Paul himself has pointed out many times, his campaign didn't do anything to organize support on the Internet. That's not how it works.

What happens is that millions of people independently come to the same conclusion that there is something wrong with the System and that it needs to change. Then they start organizing on their own, and rally behind candidates who best represent their views. The organizing is bottom-up, not top-down.

Non-Paul Republicans can't tap into that because their entire political model is authoritarian: 'We report, we decide.' That model appeals only to passive-minded people, and passive-minded people aren't inclined to self-organize."
