He should come to UCM in

He should come to UCM in Warrensburg. Tons of Ron Paul support here. With the most passionate Ron Paul supporter being me.

hm

I'm from the Columbia area.Why is it the Missouri voter website says next vote 4/3/2012?

Use logic for once and get the facts

I am getting very tired of "supporters" saying that this all comes down to fraud.

Sorry, I hosted one of these rallies.
We had about 2,600 in attendance.
The next day we caucused.
Less than a couple hundred came out to vote.
How do I know?
I was there!
I helped call everyone that attended the event the night before.
Most people are not ELIGIBLE to participate or just wanted to see Dr. Paul speak, traveled from long distance, were getting school credit, on and on.

If we are to depend on the youth to make this happen, we have to help them every step of the way.
They don't know the rules.
They don't know where to vote.
They don't know when to vote.
They don't know that they need to take off work.
They don't understand the system that is designed to keep them out!

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

working

I personally will be at the Missouri caucus and I consider myself very lucky to be able to be there. Alot of people that work retail and some even factory workers are not allowed to take off work. I worked retail up to last year and believe me, you can NOT take off in most retail jobs now expecially on a weekend and if you call in sick and you are seen at a caucus, you are fired. I don't think that all of those that don't go are just lazy or don't care. My guy has a factory job and a 12 hour shift Saturday and can't go but I will be there. Please give people the benefit of a doubt because they are human and quite honestly, I think that most Ron Paul supporters would do anything to help him win. I was at the St Charles rally and we drew over 2,600 supporters and I will never forget what Dr Paul said when we all stood up and cheered for over a minute when he walked in. He said that "We energized him!" and He Energizes US!!

thanks for the reality check!

all about getting the information out!
We are losing the info war big time atm. and it seems all we care about is crying fraud. This is ok but we need to get out there and change things where we can!

We learned from our mistakes

We are in contact with these organizers to attempt to get them to focus on what they need to do to get votes, not just fill the event.

Lucky for them theirs is an open caucus.

Don't confuse Ron Paul supporters ability to organize awesome events for our candidate as a sign that we have those votes. Conversion is critical and so is education. Most people on a college campus couldn't tell you the difference between a Conservative and a Liberal, a Republican or a Democrat. That is our job to organize our community to participate.

Go after Santorum, NOW!

Dr. Paul has to attack Santorum's religious background! I'd quote Matthew 7:12 and SLAM Santorum as not following his own faith. He has to caution those of faith against trusting Santorum without a proper vetting!

IT IS NOW OR NEVER.

Rally’s and Votes

I’ve seen a lot of photos lately of Ron Paul rallies in various states. Then I’ve seen photos of Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney rallies. Frankly, I think we can all say Ron Paul Rallies have far surpassed any of these other candidates. Generally, we are speaking of thousands of supporters compared to hundreds for the other candidates. What then becomes the big surprise, according to main stream media (MSM), “young voters from these rallies are not turning out to vote.” That has to be one of the most ridiculous analogy I’ve ever heard. Coming from the MSM; though, it is no surprise. A far more logical, and analytical answer would be massive voter fraud. The problem with that is, it would be too much of a shock for most Americans to believe such a thing, or would it. We can all remember the Bush/Gore race in 2004. The Florida debacle should be just one local area that raises concern about proper voting methods.
Now, please bear with me. You would think there should be a big case for voter fraud, easily portrayed to give anyone enough suspicion or doubt, with the Ron Paul campaign and primary vote counts. Let me give you a summary of just Kansas alone.
Doing a search on the Internet for Ron Paul rallies in Kansas I found numbers stating:
LENEXA, Kansas – 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul drew a remarkable more than 2,100 voters to his University of Kansas Town Hall Meeting held tonight. (http://www.ronpaul2012.com/2012/03/10/ron-paul-draws-2100-vo...)
Presidential Candidate Ron Paul will be at the University of Kansas tomorrow. The Texas congressman will speak at the University Lied Center at 7:30 p.m. on the eve of the Kansas Caucus. The event is sponsored by the Youth for Ron Paul chapter at the University. The chapter has recruited over 1600 supporters and has the second most supporters behind the University of Maryland. (http://www.kansan.com/news/2012/mar/08/presidential-candidat...)
Marso: 1:13: Final crowd for Paul: about 500? He tells supporters to “stay in the fight,” Steps down to standing O (http://cjonline.com/news/2012-03-09/timeline-gop-candidates-...)
These are just some quick numbers. While I do understand that University numbers may not equate to actual votes for that state due to out of state residents and young students possibly far away from their voting precinct (thought I’d suspect they would at least submit absentee ballots), a quick addition of just those rally/support numbers gives 4200. Now again, some people could have been to more than just one rally. In any case, I’m not certain on Dr. Paul’s schedule of all events in Kansas. But do know, his total vote count for the state only came in at 3,767.
I could make a few assumptions and numbers could go different ways. But I am wondering what kind of campaign manager is running the Ron Paul campaign. Why not, for instance, take preliminary vote counts at these indoor rally events? It seems most Ron Paul supporters are very committed and enthusiastic to ensure Ron Paul wins the Presidency. I don’t find it too far a stretch for the campaign manager to ask those attending the Rally to sign a sheet before they leave indicating they will be voting for Ron Paul in the primary. You print your name, indicate voting county, date it and sign your name. Of course, if you’ve already been to another event and signed the “voting sheet” you don’t sign again. The campaign manager could track this easily and at least get some sort of indication of any variance in the Primary Votes and the Rally/Event votes/signatures.
Do I suspect voter fraud, you bet! Why wouldn’t you when it’s so easy and proven to occur so many times in the past. There are many web, and documentaries showing this countless times. For a quick look you can review the following:

Total Election Fraud Against Ron Paul Documented! (6 minute clip) http://youtu.be/IuP8FoigDoQ

My advice, at these events, start collecting vote signatures. Of course, perhaps the campaign thinks it’s a moot point because if they can change the results, I suppose they can always “add” enough votes to the other candidate counts.
Get your election boards to count these votes by hand….

Bush/Gore

It was 2000.

Where to begin with your misinformed post

First of all, many of your assumptions about our Kansas caucus pretty much make your rant unreadable.

1.We do count ballots in Kansas (quite like Iowa). Every campaign has an observer to watch the count. So no vote counting fraud. Our state is nothing like Florida. We use paper ballots.

2. Yes, everyone going to the rallies are often times the same people that went to others in the State. Also not everyone at the rally was eligible to vote. Many had no registration at all. We like many states have registration deadlines far in advance of the straw poll.

3.Crowd numbers can usually be based on interest. Have you ever been to a concert? Does that imply that you own the album or any album by said band? Have you ever watched a Academy Award winning film? Are there more people watching that than say a summer blockbuster? Does attendance equate victory?

Plain fact: Ron Paul is a Rock Star. He can fill the seats of all types of people (Democrats, Republicans, Independents). Doesn't mean they all can vote for him.

Plain fact: Santorum and Romney are your typical Academy Award winner. Very few people have seen him but everyone agrees that for some reason he is the best because the experts said so.

Will be hard to break 10% in

Will be hard to break 10% in Missouri. Talk to all your friends and family. And tell them to talk to their friends.

//The man who likes to promote votes

what do you mean 10%

Paul had that much in the Primary, first of all the Missouri GOP is not releasing straw numbers, second we won the initial round of Missouri county conventions in '08.

Missouri voters have no idea what a caucus is, last one was in '96 - you will be shocked by the number of Paul people this Saturday.

I think it will be our best showing to date.

Mass distribute flyers the day before and after to multiply..

the impact the good Dr. has!

These flyers are all free to print:

Once people know what the Dr. stands for without the media spinning his message he wins their minds and hearts!

RonPaulPeace with a great job

RonPaulPeace with a great job as usual! And you are right too!

If more people knew what Ron Paul is about. They would vote for him. Promote his msg!
