Washington Caucus Results Open Thread - Paul Takes Second Place

Super Tuesday is next Tuesday. See the full GOP primary schedule here.

RON PAUL 2012!

From the campaign:

The help of fellow patriots from OUTSIDE Washington State is desperately needed on caucus day March 3rd. In Washington State, most caucuses are held in pooled locations where in many cases over 200 precincts meet in one location. We have a need for 150 out of state patriots to help keep the caucus counts honest, man tables and be a presence at pooled locations in the Seattle area from 8:30 AM to approx 11:30 AM. The most important things that anyone out of state can do to help Washington right now is:

  • Travel in if you can afford it and help at the pooled caucus
  • Phone from home
  • Contact every RP supporter you know in Washington State and go to www.waronpaul.com and “submit a supporter”

Many caucus goers don’t understand how the caucus process works and have never been to one before. By volunteering you’ll have the chance to keep the process honest, help new caucus goers and be a big part in delivering a WIN for Dr. Ron Paul!

I'm guessing people from

I'm guessing people from Canada come too.

Your right

They are coming out strong because in 2008 nobody knew of caucuses. At least not from MO. Now the status quo is trying to get all republicans involved to combat RP supporters.

Has there been any explanation

from anyone regarding the long delay in the King County final tally?

No explanation needed:

it is King County. Around 10-is the lights were still blazing, the parking lot full, the silhouettes in the windows many . . .

Long delays mean they haven't reconciled the counts (also known to the experienced and jaded as they haven't established the numbers they want quite yet). It can also be the case that there are numerous cases of incorrectly filed paperwork. If the triplicate forms are not filled out precisely the information on the form cannot be accepted. It can be as simple as a failure on the part of the caucus chair to sign the form to verify the information. Paul campaign observers, including attorneys, on the job there at all times.

Phil. 4:13

They're trying to find a 24hr Starbucks?

Seattle runs on coffee, after all.

On the Fox site

We have Romney with 30 delegates, and bot Paul and Santorum with 5 each, is this correct, I get the impression from the Dr. Paul's speeches that we are doing better.. Am I missing something, or is the media making things up again?

I see the narrative plain as day..

repeat a lie long enough.. when Paul shows up with delegates, the media will have a long list of its BULLSHIT to point at. 'See, we told you all along and Ron Paul is here to screw things up.'


'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Don't pay any attention to that number

They have no idea on the delegate count. That won't be decided until the state conventions. We will do much much better than this shows. We may even win the delegate count. But it will SURELY be much closer. Don't sweat it

Media is talking out of their arses again...

They wont know any of this nonesense they are speaking of until June.. Man that feels a long ways away... Again, I AM REALLY PRAYING FOR CONVENTION TIME.. We need it because that is, in my humble opinion, the only way we can actually win the presidency at this time. We need to RP supporters to be delegates that are bound to whichever candidate in whichever state and then when they count a 2nd round in the convention, they can choose to be Paul supporters and make HISTORY by winning in a stealthy way. Thats our best shot at this time...

Ron Paul 2012

Stealthy way?

You want to win through dishonesty?

Dishonest my bippy.The RULES

Dishonest my bippy.

The RULES are that the DELEGATES are what matters. The direct vote is just another straw poll and does NOT matter for the candidate selection.

(Just like the country, the GOP is organized as a republic, not a democracy. The choice of representatives is what controls.)

THEY made these rules. They made them that way so THEY could do a stealth win. That's how THEY took over the party.

Ron and the Campaign for Liberty are playing by these rules because that's the only game in town. And we're WINNING.

Once we have control of the GOP we can change the rules if we want to. Until then the rules are what they are until at least the next conventions of the state and national GOP organizations.

= = = =
"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

Please re-read what the poster said

He said that even bound delegates should switch to Ron Paul so that he can win in a "stealthy way". That's dishonest.

No, it's not. Bound

No, it's not. Bound delegates are bound for the first ballot only. After that they get to vote for whomever they want. (To do otherwise would hang the convention if it didn't pick a winner on the first ballot.)

Those are the RULES. It's not dishonest to play by them.

Vote fraud in Iowa yes, NOT in WA, most likely...

Most people at my caucus also voted for Romney, but it was like 30-40% for Paul to 50-60% Romney... Im not saying some votes werent thrown out, but Romneytrons came out tough.. High turn out killed us tonight... You have to realize that really only 2 places fraud and media bias at extreme corrupt levels had to only happen twice and that was in Iowa and in SC 2nd (because that would have gave Paul at 10-15point boost by default in NH, which would have spilled into a STRONG 2nd in SC, to a 2nd in FL, to a 1st in NV, to a 1st in MN and a 2nd in CO, which would have carried ME and WA and then 4 states EASILY on Super Tuesday, which would have lead him the nomination). After that, the party and the media didnt have to do much after steals, honestly... Why? Did any of you do PFH? How many times, honestly, did people say that liked Ron Paul, but that they didnt think he had a chance? That was a REALLY strong number. THe rest of the GOP just watches Fox and the radio idiots (Limbaugh, Levin, etc..) and thats older folks. We will win in the end. Lets hope Rand can be a good torch bearer, regardless of rhetoric, his record is pretty solid. But at least hes a better politician... Heck, we could still win this thing if this goes to convention, if Romney doesnt have a majority, and all the states "bound" delegates are actually Ron Paul supporters, which can now be UNBOUND and vote for Ron in the 2nd round. WE JUST NEED IT TO GET THERE! Divided field is a good thing! Division is our friend. Do not let Romney take this early! I really hope Paul people are applying to be bound delegates at Primary states, just in case...

Ron Paul 2012

6,000 votes separate Paul from Romney out of 6 million people

It amazes me how small that is. Less than Ron Paul's Washington speech attendance are deciding it.

Or less than Ron Paul's Washington speech attendance being thrown out and not counted are deciding it...

Santorum 3rd place

I'm very happy with Santorum's 3rd place and Gingrich, 4th place. I thought initially it was suppose to be status quo (Romney) vs liberty (Paul.) Santorum and Gingrich are losing support and Paul is steady; that's good.

Vote for Delegates at the County Conventions

Register (by Thurs for most of us) to attend your county convention. This is where the delegates to the State Convention will be chosen.

Invest your campaign dollars by making sure Paul keeps all the delegates chosen at the Caucus and maybe pick up some more! We can't let up at all---this is so important!!!! And don't forget to know your Robert's Rules of Order (go get a 2nd hand copy; they will misquote them to discredit).

Remember, remember

Ron Paul Always Wins spread the word (and if ya don't you're silly) or you're just doing your job and you hate it:

Win or lose: my daughters, son, and nieces will remember liberty as they were out there playing in their little treehouse with a Ron Paul 2012 sign out front

Watch The Obsolete Man: There is a God!

Who is voting for Romney? I

Who is voting for Romney?

I really don't think any real people are...

People with...


People who watch TV

and listen to Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, BO Reilly, etc.

In other words, unthinking maroons.

Companies are people too...

Maybe they'rs all those companies that he says are people too. Talked those companies to register and come out and vote. LOL

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

Most of the people at my caucus in King County

voted for Romney.

Google pulls results from AP and it is owned by...

Rothchilds. They own the largest stake I believe and they also own Reuters for the past 200 years and some.

May be that's why it's hard to get votes counted in front of everybody ay?

Stop with the conspiracies

and leave them to Santorum and Romney baby...It's OK!

Win or lose: my daughters, son, and nieces will remember liberty as they were out there playing in their little treehouse with a Ron Paul 2012 sign out front

Watch The Obsolete Man: There is a God!


what kind of an idiotic statement is that? it's a public knowledge. Conspiracies... I think you missed the tube tit for a second there while writing your comment

I was thinking the Same..

We need to leave Google Alone! They are trying to charge me to have my Mug shot removed from searches even though my charges were dropped and I was never convicted of anything or accepted any plea..

All this because of the new Privacy Policy..

Google is a Major Part of this Global Govt Establishment

1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th...

Doesn't matter.

Maybe if you like to brag, sure.

We have the delegates, we won the event, we move on to super tuesday!

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Brag away

Bragging rights wherever we can get it is always good.

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.
