If You're Not Attending Your Local GOP Meetings. You Don't Want Ron Paul To WIN!

Why do I say that??
"Why do I say YOU need to attend your local GOP meeting" , The answer is simple. DELEGATES.
In order for Ron Paul to Be Nominated, we need Delegates.
PERIOD.
END OF STORY.
NO DELEGATES.
NO WIN.

IT DOES NOT MATTER IF WE RAISE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS... WITHOUT (enough) DELEGATES. HE--WONT-- WIN!!!!!

And Delegates are elected.
Be it in primaries/ or in caucuses. Local GOP members elect them. Are you one? Have you attended a meeting? Do they all know you there? If the answer is no.

>>>THEN IMMEDIATELY GOOGLE "YOUR COUNTY NAME" AND "GOP"<<<

What you should see is some contact/website info for your local GOP. Get in touch w/someone there, find their meeting calendar and attend ALL THE MEETINGS! YOU MUST DO THIS NOW..AS IN TODAY -RIGHT NOW!

Here's why....

Lets say your local GOP meeting meets once a month.
--If you attend in October, they get to know you. Dress sharp, be cordial and as outgoing as possible. If you have a business card(for whatever) bring it and hand it out. People will be impressed.
--In the November meeting they may vote or nominate people for local leadership positions. (there you can vote up a good person, or yourself)
--In December, they may actually vote on delegates (depending one where you live). If you just "show up" for the first time at a meeting then, they wont know you and may not trust you. Therefore LAY THE GROUNDWORK TODAY!

The people there must get to know you, must respect you, and most of all must like you. Once that happens you can either become a delegate yourself(though the nomination process) or you can influence the vote for the best (Ron Paul)delegates.

I just spoke with the Campaign, and they vigorously agree! THEY ARE IN THE PROCESS OF PUTTING TOGETHER A DELEGATE TRAINING/SUPPORT PACKAGE!

If you want to be a part of the delegates process, or just want more information on it THEN IMMEDIATELY GO HERE http://www.ronpaul2012.com/sign-up-as-volunteer/ AND ENTER YOUR INFORMATION. In the OTHER BOX Put INTERESTED IN BEING A DELEGATE! They will contact you in the coming days or weeks to organize formal training,etc

>>>> NOTE: THE ABOVE PROCESS IS IDEAL HOWEVER SOME STATES ARE CHOOSING THEIR DELEGATES, ETC EARLY(like today!). Take Wyoming for example...

Because of Wyoming's caucus system, less than 1,500 select individuals will decide which candidate will win the state's delegates.

To be 1 of those 1,500, all you need to do is become a Precinct Committeeman or Precinct Committeewoman ("PC"). As a PC, you automatically become a county convention delegate, who make up the 1,500 influential voters.

If there is a vacancy and you are a registered Republican, all you have to do is ASK your County Republican Party to volunteer for the position and you will be appointed as a PC. It really is that simple.

The thing is Wyoming happened today. Did we have any Ron Paul people elected? Were you aware of the meetings? Do you know your own local deadlines? If not WHY NOT?

That Easy?

I'm from Hudson County in NJ (extremely densely populated) and can't find an iota of useful information about our GOP. I registered Republican last month but it looks like not every county has a presence on Google.

.

There is also a lot of redistricting going on so even if you think you have a position within your precinct that could very well change unless you go to each meeting. They also discuss delegate selection and rules at these meetings so it is important to read your local bylaws and vote on motions that help free up delegates or make it easier to become a delegate.

It's a cliche for a reason...

we have to get out of our comfort zone. Hanging with a bunch of groovy young Ron supporters is far more fun, but it simply isn't enough. Let's join those local GOP clubs and executive committees. At the same time, that's where we will learn the political skills to bring the revolution further. It doesn't end in November!

recently told a member about this... and they agreed...

then they went and DID NOTHING!!

PEOPLE IF YOU READ THIS THREAD... FIND OUT WHEN AND WHERE YOUR LOCAL GOP MEETINGS ARE === MARK YOU CALENDAR AND GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO G0

RP campaign never responded to us in New york state.

Jim Ostrowski was campaigns attorney in 08. We contacted the campaign back in August, numerous times. There has been no response. I believe this has caused the people to lose interest here.

The people that were all excited about the delegate process have just faded out. People are pretty bummed.

We just don't think RP is going to campaign in the state, he didn'tlast time.

well never say never.....

things are changing all the time.. As he keeps winning , more funds come in.. and thus more campaigning!

I heard there was a campaign office in NY already?

not sure where you are there, but worth checking out if its not too far.

Most informative / Most important

Forum topic created this month! (or most important since 2007 :)

Signed up & will direct the other 4 RP delegate hopefuls in my precinct to do the same. Thanks Jdayh...you've been the most enduring kick ass activist here for years!

thanks CptDave.... please pass this thread to as many as you can

Once people see things from this perspective, its harder to be lazy ,or to ignore their duty to get Ron Paul elected. Showing up to a meeting once a month or so, is such a small price to pay for Freedom and Liberty!

Bump again.

Good thoughts, all!

Bump

.

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?
Freedom is only for those with the guts to defend it!

I agree 100%.. if you are not

I agree 100%.. if you are not a DELEGATE you ain't S*&t!

well since not every person can be a delegate....

perhaps , the line should be drawn, that says if you don't attend your local GOP meetings, then you ain't S*&t. Going there will get you the influence to allow RP friendly delegates to be nominated, and eventually voted in!

Really, sierra? How sad.

I moved recently and am not eligible. There I was, out marching in the streets and talking to people hungry for change thinking I was doing something to influence positive change, but now I find out I ain't... Oh, wait, you are right. I ain't that, I am a bad-a$$ in the fight for truth. Got dozens of people investing in silver over the past few years. Thanks again for sending me down that rabbit hole!

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

If you are not eligible you

If you are not eligible you are not eligible. you can not do anything about that.

The most important thing is that PEOPLE GET TO THEIR GOP

MEETINGS!! If say each meetup group of 25-150 people all went to their local GOP meetings, some if not all of the delegates elected/nominated WILL BE RON PAUL DELEGATES!

However, without RP people voting for them , it will be more difficult to get them elected. SO , whether or not you can be a delegate, or even want to ... GO TO THE GOP MEETINGS!!

Bumperino!

MOST important!

By far the most important

By far the most important thing to do.

without this WE JUST WONT WIN!!

We must get to the GOP meetings to influence both who is selected as well as to possibly be the ones selected!

Mobilize

Somehow I don't expect to be welcomed with open arms but the plan is to kill them with kindness.

If they like you they will vote for you!

or at the very least , listen to you !

Don't be so sure ....

.... there's been a sea change since 2008. I've been attending my county Republican Club meetings since then, and this year the Club President is stepping down. There's been a HUGE push from regular members who I've been "courting" all this time, for me to run. These same members were once Ron Paul haters, but have come around to, at least, respect him. I'd like to think that I had a lot to do with that.

I will be running.

I take my marching orders from the Constitution!

thats what I m talking about!!

You've been attending your GOP meetings since 2008, and now many of them trust you! I SAY GO FOR IT! RUN AND TRY TO WIN, even if you lose you will gain more clout!

spoke to the campaign ... THEY NEED DELEGATES!

PLEASE let them know you are interested, they will train you!
