Ron Paul is looking for students who would like to spend 9-10 days campaigning in Iowa for him. The campaign will provide food, lodging, gas, and of course campaign materials...


The school semester ends for most of us in a couple weeks, and the Ron Paul 2008 campaign is offering a historic opportunity just for students. We are hosting 150 students Dec. 14-23 and Dec. 27 - Jan. 4 in Iowa, and I'd like to invite you to be a part of it.

If you can get to Iowa, the campaign will provide you with the rest (food, lodging, gas money, etc). Come to Iowa, work for Ron Paul, and stay for free. Does it get any better than that?

Please RSVP here:

Week 1
Arrival date is Friday, Dec. 14
Departure date is Sunday, Dec. 23

Week 2
Arrival date is Thursday, Dec. 27
Departure date is Friday, Jan. 4

If you arrive later or depart sooner, it is acceptable but not encouraged. If your arrival or departure is not during these dates you are on your own for housing and food. If you prefer to stay in Iowa during Christmas, we may be able to make housing accommodations for a few students (no promises).

We are hosting 6 different camps across Iowa. The logistics of each week are relatively the same. Each camp will consist of teams between 16-36 students staying in heated cabins. We will do our best to keep you with your friends/classmates and in a camp closest to your home state. During the week, we will flood the streets, go door to door, and talk to Iowans about why we are supporting Ron Paul and why they should too.

Historically, turn out in the Republican Iowa caucus is very low. 25,000 votes for Ron Paul will guarantee us a top 3 finish. Having you in Iowa the two weeks leading up to the caucus will be the difference. We will shock the political and media establishment!

What to bring:
Think in the context of staying in a heated cabin (boy scout/church camp), in Iowa in January (cold/snow), and during the day you'll be walking door to door.

Week 1 = 10 days, week 2= 9 days
- Student ID to verify you are a student
- Warm/Nice Clothes (gloves, scarf, hat, etc. and you will be representing Ron Paul to Iowans, don't be a slob)
- Comfortable shoes (lots of walking, possibly in the snow)
- Pillow, sheets, warm blanket (all you get is a mattress, but cabins are heated)
- Towel
- Bathroom supplies (tooth brush, deodorant, soap, shampoo, etc.)
- Medication
- Umbrella/Raincoat
- Laptop, Portable DVD player, Ipod, cards
- Your best answer to why you are supporting Ron Paul and why Iowans should too!

What NOT to bring:
- All the obvious things
- Alcohol/Drugs
- Guns, knives, fireworks
- Large banners, signs

Questions? Email Jeff Frazee, jeff.frazee@ronpaul2008.com

We have a chance to shock the political and media establishment, and we could be the difference. See you in Iowa!

I'm waiting for them to open the RSVP for the other states. I'm in NC and can travel to SC, I think.

If you'd still like to volunteer, you might want to consider Operation Live Free or Die.. they'll help find you lodging and coordinate you to campaign in New Hampshire :)
