Ron Paul Delegates in Alaska Going the Extra Mile

Ron Paul Delegates in Alaska Going the Extra Mile

Actually, several Ron Paul Delegates will be flying over 700 miles in order to attend the Alaska Republican Party State Convention. In Alaska, to be a State Convention Delegate you must be elected at a District Convention, pay district and state convention registration fees, and then arrange your own travel to Anchorage. This means that many delegates will incur costs of $1800 just to vote for Dr. Paul at the State Convention. Truly, this is going the extra mile.

Ron Paul Delegates are traveling to the state convention from all parts of the state. We even have six Ron Paul Delegates who will be traveling all the way from Barrow, Alaska (the northernmost city in the United States) to vote for Dr. Paul. Because of the extensive costs they will incur in doing so, we are welcoming support to help our delegates be able to afford the journey. Please extend a hand of support to some of our most dedicated delegates. Any amount will be an encouragement.

The six elected Ron Paul Delegates traveling from Barrow (Alaska House District 40) are:

Connie, Jess, Tavia, Scott, Timothy, and Tyrone.

The House District Chairman who will be leading the delegation from Barrow is Tyrone Barr.

From the Last Frontier,

UPDATE FROM ALASKA RON PAUL STATE ORGANIZER

Let me say that creating a storm of condemning phone calls to the Alaska Republican Party offices will not help our cause. Some or maybe even all of those you mention in your list are decent people, in their ways…they are just trying to hang on to power and have forgotten why we are all Republicans in the first place,

Please don’t advocate for that mass bombardment you mention; it can only sour things.

We are doing well in our battle and will ask for the help we need as we need it.

Alaska is a giant state, but a small community. The very last thing we need is giving party leadership ammunition to complain about a bunch of “paultards” harassing them.

We are winning this battle with intelligence, true respect for all, clear focus on organizing and the rules, and our most humble and sincere efforts towards grace, and do not need to unleash the wrath of angry hordes.

Please let us fight for ourselves our way, and be patient for two weeks.

We will share our story after the convention here in two weekends.

If you want, pray or wish or meditate or imagine for all to be of pure heart, and treating people with respect from the right place…and imagine closed hearts opening and realizing we are not a threat to them, but sincere advocates for a better world. It’s a generational paradigm shift that is happening. It doesn’t have to be a war. We are using the tools of due process and documentation to assert our rights and we have confidence. The Ron Paul Movement has awakened here to an unprecedented level, and it’s sophisticated.

Think of our hero, Dr. Paul. He would never bombard people with a rash of rash callers. He would advocate for reason, sound arguments, and the assertion of due process. He always has.

We are doing that same thing. And we believe that will be sufficient for now.

Please share this message, not one that generates wrath and scorn. Nothing good will come of that at this point, if ever.

We will only win by not becoming like the perceived enemy, but by recognizing all humankind as our brothers and sisters and treating all with respect. We will win by refusing to be bullied, but always treating all with respect.

Feel free to share this message where ever you see people raising their ire. Calm them with patience. We will complain very loudly if we cannot resolve our problems and have a fair Convention, but we do not seek a media storm now.

The ARP leaders have only played these games of disenfranchisement because they are scared.

In time, they will realize we are just their neighbors, speaking truth to power.

Thank you for your offer and enthusiasm to help…and I hope, I can thank you soon for your respect and trust in us.

delegate exclusion?

Any news on the supposed exclusion of non-romney candidates as reported earlier here on the DP?

Delegate Exclusion

My first feedback is that the State GOP leadership will probably back down & allow registration until registration closes.

No irate phone calls to the state party leaders are required here, please, as we are winning this battle inch by inch, through due process, documentation, & due diligence. We don't want to alienate our other state party leaders when we can win this battle on the rules themselves, especially with their support.

However, any long term change within the state party up here won't come unless we can get all our elected Ron Paul delegates & alternates, especially from the far reaches of Alaska, to attend the state convention next week. It's that close. Please consider helping to donate to our "far-flung elected Ron Paul Alaska Delegates & Alternates" via PayPal & Chip-In, once people get those started. The delegates & alternates must directly pay their fees to the Alaska Republican Party (ARP), as long as any donors to them contribute legally.

Bill Topel

good response is that indeed.

good response is that indeed. Doug Wead posted a similar message as well. Courtesy and friendliness wins the day in these matters. will donate after being paid. make sure to post the chipin here also!

Method for Donating & Receiving Donations for Alaska Delegates

There's been a change in our method:

Given the variety of our delegates, getting money out of a chip in is a logistical nightmare.

Far better, will be for us to have potential donors invited to contact us at info@alaskans4ronpaul2012.org and let us know how much they can afford to help. We will reply to them within two days in all cases.

We will then match them with the confirmed Alaskan Ron Paul delegates who’s needs most closely match the prospective donor’s ability to help. This way the arrangements are one a personal, one to one basis. All we feel legally comfortable doing is to facilitate those introductions, and provide whatever information each party needs to feel comfortable in such exchanges.

We Alaskans Appreciate Dr. Ron Paul & Your Help!

We Alaskans appreciate Ron Paul & any help you fellow supporters can give us at this last minute to enable our far-flung delegates to attend the State Convention next weekend in Anchorage. We are on the verge of success, but it depends on EVERY ONE of our Delegates & Alternates elected from the various district conventions up here since March 6 to be able to attend. It is that close, people! If this happens, you WILL SEE CHANGE & REVOLUTION FROM ALASKA FOR RON PAUL.

We are up against the very same hurdles & obstacles that other county/district/state conventions have experienced in some of the other states down in the "Lower 49", so y'all should already understand. Alaska is the HERE & NOW battleground in the Ron Paul 2012 Campaign.

Please help us MAKE IT HAPPEN IN ALASKA!

For Peace, Love, Freedom, & Liberty,

Extreme Bump!

Well done! That is a mega cost. Wish I could help financially. The least I can do is bump it though! Well played. Hope to see you all at the convention.
