I heard about the Iowa straw poll and how RP wasn't even on the ballot. Then there was the Texas straw poll where anyone wearing RP gear or showing support for him was not allowed in the building. Now they are canceling straw polls so that RP cannot win like the one in SF. I really think it is time for us to dress up as Indians... so to speak... referring to the Boston Tea Party. I agree there are dark forces against us. I truly believe that anyone wearing any RP gear will be labeled when it comes to selecting delegates. In other words they find a way not to select them. So I think it is our turn to play their game. I think we should try it for the next straw poll where ever that may be.
Maybe dress in nothing RP related, stay neutral, and show no support to RP but vote for him. The SF thing scared me. This is going to continue to happen unless we do something. I think we should show our lack of support when it is time to vote. I mean we all still vote for him but don't come out and say it. Maybe even go as far as wearing a McCain shirt or something. We need to be the wolves in sheep's clothing now.
It is our turn my friend. Please let me know what you think. I want an opinion before my meetup meeting.
Thanks... Josh Tuttle
