Tampa is going to be massive

For Ron Paul!

Now that he got his wins in five states the nomination is his to lose!

With all this support he has and the take over of the GOP Taking place I doubt Romney even shows up!!!!

With the disgust he feels in his campaign as nobody really wants him there the nomination is Ron Paul's to lose!

Then the take over of the white house will be imminent!

Obama will only be able to say good bye and good luck!

Just the fact that the nomination/convention process

is so manipulated by the establishment for their intended outcome, is beyond me. I can't believe people in the GOP stand for this. How can State GOP leaders maintain respect by resorting to cheating. I don't care if Fidel Castro is running for the office, keep the playing field level. But to cheat the only honest candidate, who's above reproach, is just so Un-American. Now that Newt is out of the way, let's realy fire this Revolution up...starting with the big Tea Party rally in Texas.

Credentials committee is key

It may come down to this: whoever controls the credentials committee will control the convention. The Paul campaign has to do whatever necessary to get its delegates credentialled and onto the floor.

What about music?

The good Dr. says, if your're gonna have a revolution you gotta have music. It might be considered the campaign rent an outdoor space very near the venue and erect a large tent. There could be music provided and this place could also act as an informal meeting place for delegates and supporters to strategize.

I just hope they have plenty of...

...Port-O-Potties on hand for that crush of hundreds who will suddenly have to desperately use the restroom as the first-ballot voting is announced.

Doug Wead conjectured that

Doug Wead conjectured that corrupt GOP establishment will try to pull dirtiest forms of shenanigans before Tampa. Such as: Declaring delegations from states like Iowa & Louisiana "INVALID" & prohibit them from entering convention floor. Do you really expect Goldman Sachs communist/fascist Politburo brigade rolling out red carpet welcoming our kind? There is too much at stake here. There has never been so much at stake in last 100 years of Presidential elections.

Another possibility: If it appears that Paul army has amassed "dangerously" large delegate brigade before Tampa, it might become "convenient" for Obama administration to invent a crisis in the middle-east against Iran. Call it "False Flag" or whatever to even temporarily suspend Constitution. There is a long track record of funny mischief about creating international conflicts to distract from domestic "crises":

* USS Maine explosion off coast of Cuba blamed on Spanish empire
* Info that Lusitania transported weapons from US to Britain suppressed
* Lies that Vietnamese launched torpedoes against US navy ship in Gulf of Tonkin
* Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction

Whatever happens, Tampa is going to be a WAR! Next 4 months are going to be extremely nerve-wrecking.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!


Ironically, the liklihood of war escalation rises as Paul wins more delegates.

Wear your Ron Paul attire, but wear a decent t-shirt underneath,

so that you're prepared to blend with the locals. Also record everything. I won't be surprised when some "Paul supporters" start rioting, causing the whole thing to shut down.

I see the exact opposite

If Ron Paul is elected in CA, and I'm a delegate, I'm going to follow the convention rules on attire and signs, after all, it will be between Romney and Ron Paul, so I feel great KNOWING Ron Paul Republicans will be everywhere... what I fear (fear bing false evidence appearing real) is the establishment SOBs pulling a 911 on us to eliminate us.

Now.. with a thought like that why would I go? Because I trust in Jesus and God's will, KNOWING I'm fighting a good fight, and KNOWING if such an event happens, life on earth , especially America, will be HELL.

They won't pull that on you inside the convention.

Just prepare yourself mentally to be alert to the shenanigans they will try to pull from the podium. Rally together with our other delegates and stand up for what you're there to do... get Dr. Paul the nomination and his platform approved.

IF there is to be trouble similar to the type you are thinking in your head, it will take place OUTSIDE of the convention. Everybody taking part in that deserves all our love and respect but, they'd better learn from the past and organize wisely. Those are the people for whom I fear. They could be subjected to things far worse than what happened in 1968. Even more than our dear, patriotic, delegates, they must be well organized and prepared mentally, emotionally and physically. Any wide-eyed innocence on anyone's part could be dangerous for them. BE PREPARED and expect the very best results!

Will you be there?

I have onwed and operated a Robert Rules of Order book for many years, even been a parlimentarian, and I hope this helps.

That said, I am always awed when I see some "coupe" employed by a group that has practiced their RROO and seizes the moment, capturing the victory, as most others have no clue and not enough time.

RROO is also like a Rabit hole, or 3D live chess game.

You have what it takes, Granger, so don't worry.

This might help you in Tampa, as rules other than RROO will also apply:


Unfortunately, serious, pressing, personal obligations prevent me from being there. Should the situation I must deal with change, I will drive down in a heartbeat to join the supporters outside the convention. I can hook up with a nearby FL friend and RP supporter, with very short notice.

In the meanwhile, we (hubby, neighbor, son, grandson, and I) are doing all we can within our state get out the vote for Dr. Paul and the RP delegates. The best I can do out of state at this time is to try to help here at DP.

Thank You Nonna!

Thank you and God Bless you. I sure hope I'm there and not the Romney delegate, as much as I like her. (((( Nonna )))))

Because Ron Paul delegates on the floor in 2008

had their microphones cut, maybe they need portable ones in the event of a voice vote/takeover!


Small megaphones kept inside a bag.


Wearing attire that lets anyone know your a RP delegate is a bad idea though. Wait till you get on the convention floor to show your colors.

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

Yes. We have more than three

Yes. We have more than three months to plan everything they may do based on experience.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

I just hope RP has VERY, VERY

..good security.

Can't help but feel

that Chicago and Tampa are going to be the training grounds for Obama's new Police State laws. I really pray that it will be peaceful. Not one Ron Paul voter should lose their right to vote because they have been rounded up in an "organised" riot.History shows that this is the norm at the onset of revolutions.
Go in Peace for Dr Paul.

maintaining contacts during the convention

it seems to be urgent that all our people have a central number to call in case of being badly handled at any point in or outside of the building.

an emergency way to get immediate help/witness

and NO one should be alone at any time

the goons who are or work for the RNC/GOP might stoop
lower than LAW ALLOWS.

they have a history now

make plans to stay safe. please.


On that note (of staying in groups),

Those who are traveling to Tampa ought to get together to get group discounts on hotels. Think like a team and act like a team. :-)

Hear, hear!

I'm hoping to rock it in Tampa and that 'Ronvoys' of some kind might be established at large..

$50 says the GOP will

move the convention to another location (at least a few hours away), and they will reschedule it, having it earlier than currently planned.

You might not like it, but I'm just being realistic here.

I hope that all Vets for Paul collaborate

to ensure that they're all in uniform for this, and to discuss any other ideas they might have.

Good signage for the vets would be, "We fought for you, now listen to us."

They'll only be able to wear

They'll only be able to wear their uniforms if they are no longer in the service. There are strict limits on what active duty military can and can not do in uniform. Attending political rallies, active campaigning for candidates and such are prohibited activities while in uniform under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

I know this because I am a soldier on active duty right now. If I wasn't I'd be running for congress right now so I could work with the good doctor to combat the domestic enemies of our Constitution.

Will Alex Jones be there?

With his cameras and all? That would be kind of amazing. I'm so excited to see what happens there. Times are different than they were in '68, these days, everyone has a cell phone, with a camera, internet connections, ect. I think what they will do is try to make us out to be the bad guys. I can't wait to see the Veterans there!

said he was

Did we also hear of a "free speech zone" proposed by Tampa?

1968 was well broadcasted at the time.

The cameras were rolling inside the convention and outside. The entire country saw what was going on. It still ended badly for the unwelcomed "outsiders", both the outside the party line delegates and the thousands who marched in support of peace.

Things haven't changed. "Power so wrapped up in it's own rightousness that it can't hear any words but it's own..."

Only the faces and parties have changed.

I live

On the other side of the country so there is no way I can be there But I will be there in thought with everyone who is going. Be very careful, Tension is so high now days that it could get crazy real quick. I hope all remains peaceful.
