Louisiana Tech Ground Game Update: My health class favors DR. PAUL!

We were having a class discussion on whether some drugs should be legalized. Pot became the main foucus and something happened that made my heart beat very fast. The first person called on said "my understanding of the constitution is that the government can't tell you what you can and cannot do to yourself as long as it doesn't affect others." He then said, "I just think it should be left up to the states." I knew immediately I had found a supporter. I then spoke up and said, "alcohol and tobacco are much more of a threat than pot, therefore we need to have a serious dicussion about legalizing it." Someone spoke up and said, "I think we should legalize pot. We could really use this to our advantage by taxing it and making money instead of spending money on this drug war." Finally, one other gentleman said, "Pot is not dangerous, it actually could help more people than it hurts." No one else in my class of about 25 argued against this. Even girls were nodding their head. I am telling you guys, I am noticing more and more that my campus favors Dr. Paul. I will continue to push and work toward Ron winning this state, but many of my fellow classmates already support him. Don't let ONE PERSON convince you we don't stand a chance. And this is coming from someone who has never and will never use any of these drugs. I just admit that I am in no place to play god and run other's lives

Niche groups are where the power is

Every niche we each belong to is where we have the most power to influence others. So great to hear you were confident enough to speak up in class.

Thrilling that someone said anything at all about the constitution!

I still say a lot of this is because of Obama. People bought his act, believed that the government really could be helpful. And now they are much more willing to consider alternatives because they see us turning into the Soviet Union sooner rather than later.

Thanks for the uplifting report!

I was thrilled as well

I almost fell out of my desk when I heard it. It was insane. People just started repeating all of Ron Paul's beliefs. Not to mention there was an amazing showing that night from Dr. Paul in the debate. I have full confidence that if any of my classmates watched the debate, they would have really seen how great Ron Paul is under the spot light.

Ron Paul Republicans go to caucus

It only matters if they are registered Republican and will go to caucus. Maybe you can find a few classmates who are registered Republican and will go to caucus. Keep us informed.

"The Republican Party of Louisiana will conduct congressional district caucuses on Saturday, April 28, 2012"

"Louisiana voters affiliated with the Republican Party on or before December 15, 2011 are eligible to participate in the caucuses."

Very True

Especially considering we have a beauty contest primary in march. I plan on getting more focused on getting people to the caucus where things really matter.

Thanks for the report,

Thanks for the report, RevoLouisiana!

NO DOUBT

I will do at least one thing everyday to spread this message. Rest assured a fight is being waged against the status quo everyday in louisiana

Last election I believe Ron

Last election I believe Ron won LA..but vote fraud made him lose. You guys should get on that..

Unfortunate

It's unfortunate that we have to worry about this kind of thing. We all know it has happened at least one time before which is one too many. I can speak up but I can't really do anything besides making sure our campain does their part in monitoring this. I will focus on getting votes and spreading the message
