UPDATED! RESULTS! Getting ready for Michigan County Convention...

Getting dressed and pressed in my suit and tie adorned with a tasteful choice of military awards and medals, the other rEVOLution Army Troops are getting geared up for battle (Suits, Ties, Dresses, recorders, paperwork), marching orders have been given by the state coordinator (Thanks Adam D.!), and there are tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings in effect for all of central Michigan. It is indeed a great day to be in the Infantry...the Paulite Army Marches rain or shine! Tonight the Revolution Reaches Michigan! To The Top! Climb To Glory!

SSG. Williams (Ret.)

POST CONVENTION UPDATE: The Isabella County Convention went very well, without any malfeasance by Republican Party chair members. After party business was concluded and the time came to fill vacant Precinct Delegate seats. With only 2 seats available sans Alternates, 6 people volunteered and the convention goers were shocked as they had never had to hold on the spot elections to fill vacant seats. Each candidate was allowed a few moments to address the convention and votes were cast by written ballot by all current elected delegates. Both Delegate seats to the Michigan Republican State Convention were secured by Ron Paul supporters, including myself, and the available Alternate slots were filled by like minded Liberty Republicans. In other words, every available position was filled by a Ronulan Paulite.

The measure of a man is not by the oath he takes, but how he adheres to that oath... To Defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and Domestic. We are taking our country back with the tools the Founders gave us, the Intellectual Revolution is upon us, and the Ron Paul supporters are among us. To The Top! Climb To Glory!

Great Job!!

Thank you for your hard work and dedication!

Thank you for attending your convention!

Some questions...

1. What was the total number of delegates and alternates chosen? How many were Paul supporters?

2. How was the overall turnout?

3. Which candidate's supporters seemed to be most numerous?

4. Was there an organized Paul presence?

5. Among precinct delegates (having the right to vote at the county convention), about what percentage seemed to be Paul supporters?

6. Among the "drop-ins" (not precinct delegates), about what percentage seemed to be Paul supporters?

7. Among those who seemed to be Paul supporters, did they all stay until the end, or did many leave partway through?

Thank you for your dedication to the cause of Liberty!

only 10 Isabella County Delegate seats and one At-Large, so 11 total. Two were vacant and Ron Paul supporters were elected by the current Precinct Delegates in an On The Spot election, cast by written ballot. Out of 10 Alternate slots, 4 were filled by Ron Paul supporters and 6 remain empty.

Turnout was what I would consider light, but the current Repubs were astounded at newcomers so heavy for the county, which is sad. Working on that...

As for where the support of the majority lie is yet to be determined, but if water-boarded I would say they are unifying behind whoever they are told by the state GOP, i.e. Romney, although there was not any amount of enthusiasm about the idea. During my little speech to the convention, I mentioned adhering to the Constitution, a drastic change in foreign and monetary policy, and to re-establish a government and economy powered by the People, not micro-managed by Big Government, which was all well received.

The Paul presence was low key and rightfully so... we are stealth delegates after all. All Paul supporters were elected as a Delegate or Alternate, so the mission was a great success.

And everyone stayed till the end. For Liberty! SSG. R

Thank you for your service! I

Thank you for your service! I think your post is also a good reminder to the importance of preparation and mindset prior to the convention. It reminds us not to save the details, which often times are the most meaningful, to the last minute. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Keep us posted.

Go Kick Some Ass

And bring home some good news!

Let It Not Be Said That We Did Nothing

What a wonderful picture

I'm sure there are many Current serving and retired military who are now delegates. Whether you are "aloud" or not I don't know but I think it would be an awesome thing for them to go to these conventions in full uniform. It would be a great non verbal way to sway people Ron Paul's side - Especially when they SEE he has the support of the troops.

Blessed are the peacemakers

God Bless You!

There is no words to explain how thankful I am for your service.Thank you and prayers are with you!

Not to wish bad weather on you folks...

... but stormy weather will likely dampen turnout even more. So much the better for our Liberty patriots!
