this Meetup is announced to the Group

Ron Paul Phone from Home -Phone Bank

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • I've recently transplanted here from Vancouver and have started doing the Ron Paul Phone from Home Campaign. Other groups have had success in teaming up to make these calls together and wondered if there were any others interested in having a Callout Campaign Party.

     

    I use my VOIP phone and my laptop to log into the phone system and simply follow a script they provide. The setup is amazingly easy, and the actual calls are very simplistic, but the help this provides to the campaign is very important. The calls are generally done between 10am-9pm (EST) Monday to Saturday and after New Hampshire finishes we switch to Nevada.

     

    Given our time zone, it is possible that we could get together on a Friday or Saturday night and make some calls back home. If it goes well, we could challenge some other Libertarian chapters in Asia and get a friendly competition going. Would be great to do up a video for the people back home to provide some inspiration and boost morale (not like they need it).

     

    Not sure if this is many peoples cup of tea, but if anyone wants to join me, it could be something as simple as coming to my place and chipping in for a pizza or going downstairs for some pork noodles. I have a pretty small AIR CONDITIONED place right on the BTS line at Udom Suk. Bring your swim trunks if you like and some light drinks and we can make some calls together and talk Austrian Economics in between ;)

     

    I'm open for other ideas -if someone has a better location with high speed internet, maybe a few of us can bring our laptops and VOIP routers and set it up that way. I'm signed up to go to the meetup on the 19th, so if you're not interested in this, I hope to see you then. If you do want more info on this and want to do this on your own, either go to phone.ronpaul2012.com or email me directly. If there is any interest in the time and location I mentioned I could just set this up with those particulars. Have a great weekend Bruce

    Hi Gary. The system requires each caller to register their number with the web address I posted above. I personally use my Canadian VOIP number. Once its registered they give you a dial in # and they start routing your calls automatically. I figured if other people had a VOIP (preferred for me to keep long distance rates down) we could gather anywhere with broadband and setup an impromptu callcenter. At the very least we could use the one phone and take turns while the others eat/drink
