Call To Action From Athens Georgia

Call To Action From Athens Georgia

Hello everyone, I'm from Athens for Ron Paul, and don't ya'll worry.... we're fighting this.

Because the incredibly corrupt meeting was illegally closed and the delegate slate illegally voted on, according to Robert's Rule of Order, we had the right to reconvene the meeting and throw out their delegate slate. We did. We voted on and passed our own delegate slate, legally. Everything was done totally by the books. The paperwork has been submitted.
So, now, the state GOP has two slates of delegates on their hands from Athens-Clarke county. They have to pick one.

What we need:
Help us put pressure on our state and local GOP! We need to change the conversation. Instead of yelling at the state GOP about how pissed and screwed over we are, demand that they choose our delegate slate!
Tell them that the slate passed at the reconvened meeting of Athens-Clarke county which was held on March 11, 2012, is the only legal slate from that county and therefore should be the only slate that qualifies to have its delegates and alternates proceed to the District and State conventions.

Truth is treason in an empire of lies

Ok, I am a dork...

I thought I was replying to another post....

The attorney general would not like to be bothered I am sure. :)

Truth is treason in an empire of lies

thank you to those of you who . . .

kept a video record of this debacle, so that those of *us* in other parts of the country could witness and be warned.

Bless you--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

just blasted

everyone of those peeps.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I'm just well-informed

I believe...

I believe there were other counties in GA and PA where similar shenanigans occurred. Please pass on all of your wisdom to them!!


bump! Keep at it guys and gals you make us proud!
- we ain't going gently into that good night-


Please write to these people.


DAWGS !!!!!!

Great video!

Pretty much says it all.

Awesome work on all of your parts...

It is an honor to come in here and be part of a group of people who are standing up for the call of liberty.

I pray that I could be as brave as all of you were.

I will call in the morning and let them know at the GOP what an utter disgrace it was to see the meeting run in an apparent disregard for the rules of the GOP.

This now just reflects on those who were running the meeting, hopefully it stops there and the GOP does the right thing.


I think the RP supporters did a similar thing and reconvened to elect their own slate of delegates in Washington state last election.

Great Job You did it just like Roberts Rules says to

when that happens.

Will send a letter as you requested

I just wrote ...

I just wrote a respectful but firm email to each of the contacts.



Thanks Rick..

Can your Youtube video be edited to include

contact info like you have provided here since it's getting so many views?

Suggested Email

Mr/Ms. Whatever,

I have become aware of the irregularities which occurred on March 10th at the Clark County Republican convention. As a long-time Republican, I am not pleased, to say the least. In fact, I am outraged that our party would openly flout our own rules, and the basic principles of parliamentary procedure, in what appears to be an orchestrated attempt to marginalize Ron Paul delegates. He and his supporters deserve at least to be treated according to our own party rules.

It is my understanding that those Ron Paul delegates have now held their own convention, claiming that the previous convention is void because of the rules violations. What's more, they have a case! They have elected a slate of delegates, which is in fact the legitimate slate because of the irregularities at the previous convention. This kind of chaos is extremely damaging to our party. You should all be embarrassed, and should seat the legitimate delegation at the district and state conventions without further ado - before this becomes an even greater embarrassment for the GOP.

A Frustrated Republican


If you use this, be sure to change the wording a bit so that they don't get dozens of verbatim identical emails!

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

Done! From WA State

Thanks for the rough draft.

Keep it going

This is what we need help in the most, guys. Our call of "foul" has been heard (15,000+ in a day) on YoyTube and what we need is for everyone to call the numbers listed tomorrow and Sue Everhart (the State Executive Chairman) and demand that our slate be the one represented at the state convention. Email, call, hell, write a letter, just be polite.

Must win this one

After getting the appropriate delegate list chosen, this story can be the message to the others that going against the rules won't gain them anything and will be a big waste of their time.

Get it published in the paper

Seems the next step would be to get it published,, legal notices... something like that.

Send to Ben Swann

Send the Details and Footage to Ben Swann and Rachel Maddow, Ben will do a good job with it, and Rachel, well shell bring awaerness at least.
