Another Story of a 21 year old Missourian

I am currently a delegate out of Greene County Missouri or Springfield MO (3rd largest city). Springfield is a republican stronghold which Roy Blunt came out of. We went into our caucus with about 1/3 of 1000 people. We ended up sticking Rick with basically nothing, 6. Mitt got 40 and we got 65, plus the first alternates.

I was a floor captain and was one of the individuals with a "FBI" mic in his ear. I had an orange hat to wave when it was our turn to vote. The chairwoman was pretty fair, but unfair at times. It was more free than St. Charles. I was able to get up and walk down my aisle to inform our freedom family. It was a fantastic experience and was so glad I lived it.

The build up to the caucus was crazy and exhausting. I had 2 video conferences the night before and had a meeting the day before that. We were focusing on our organization and trying to get a grip of that giant book of Roberts Rules of Order. Lets just say it was all worth it.

"I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.” – John Adams

One week before our caucus we had RON PAUL come to one of our local high schools and had a rally. 2,500 Patriots showed up. Rick was in town that very day and only got like 350 ahahahahahh. Scrub. I was in charge of shuffling people into another room for a Mock Caucus, that was really just question and answer, it was fun and I was in a suit and sweating heavily at times lol. After the mock caucus we filled everyone up to the brim in the basketball gym. People backed to the back and squeezed together, people hanging from the side railings above and me sitting on the floor only 10 feet from the good doctor. After the event like you would see in the movies I ran down the school hall to get a short hand shake with the doctor. Again, worth every second of work.

Another trip I took was 1,400 miles one way in a little yellow smart car, with eye lashes. I was going to Nevada to work on Doctor Paul's campaign. It took hundred of my student loan money to get me there and back. It was an amazing experience that energized me and got me going to the latter events. I got to see 100s of young men and women fighting for liberty. The fire in their eyes, even a man from the UK. (a shout to the internationals and there support). Working long and hard days, I walked away with experiences, with life changing experiences. Worth every second.

laced in between all the events over 6-7 months was organizing for the caucus and trying to get people there and ready. I also convinced my mom shortly before the caucus Paul was the choice, my sister already was on board and my dad. My step dad, lol no so much. But I also turned one of my good friends up in Kansas City to Ron, and my other good friend in Florida to Doctor Paul. And of course a few others lol

4 years before all this, I was an Obama Drone. Shouting Change and Peace.

Now, I am a pure bread Austrian working towards a history degree and want to open a private school of my own someday. One for free men and women. Free style learning etc etc. The future is coming :)

Freedom lives in you, in me, and in every soul out their. Glorious men must suffer, they will not remember us by our names, but simply they will call us patriots.

For Liberty,
Benjamin T Brixey

Thank you for all you do

As I read this, it struck me how great a blessing it is that Ron Paul's message appeals to so many youth. I am a stay-at-home mother of 3 young children, am homeschooling them, and my husband is deployed to the middle east, and I am far away from family. I can donate my opinions online and I can donate money, and if I was brave enough I'd be asking phone calls, too, and I intend on buying stickers to plaster the city with. But you can -- and you do -- do more. I am touched at how you sacrifice your free time and your limited funds to further the cause of freedom. You are a hero.

Ben, with the energy and drive for truth from young people...

...like you, this country can be saved.

Thanks for all you do and don't let the "official" numbers dissuade you.

I define a "win" for Ron Paul as the conversion of every single brainwashed sheep or neocon. We have millions of wins and we keep winning with every Ron Paul appearance.

Ignore the media's lies and propaganda.
