Developing a strong grassroots has been key for Ron Paul, and it will be key for Gary to bring over his supporters ASAP if/when his campaign ends. RPs supporters put him on the map in the first place, and they can do it again for another liberty candidate.
I think it's very important to develop a theme for some sort of "Welcome Ron Paul Supporters" event when the time comes. If you pay any attention to the RP grassroots, they always do outreach when a candidate drops out.
Best idea, IMO... a money bomb waiting in the wings that appeals to the RP supporter's reaction to being shut out by both the establishment and the media could be very effective. They had a "Black This Out!" moneybomb to protest the media, and it drew in some serious cash. In particular, his younger supporters now have an anti-establishment attitude that's been bred and fed by his treatment by the media and the GOP establishment, and that can be used effectively to attract both grassroots support and cash if we have the right theme ready to roll when the time comes.
Oh, and I wrote an open letter to Gary Johnson about his grassroots campaign a week or so ago. Anybody interested can read it here.http://tirelessagorist.blogspot.com/201 ... hnson.html
