We need someone to stream

We need someone to stream like the "swifer/broomstick guy" from Nevada. I loved his commentary

Need help

I will be going to the convention tomorrow. I am an alternative delegate who will most likely become a delegate. Mainly because the Mitt supporters probably dropped out after hearing that Mitt was the nominee. Got to love the media.

I wont be a delegate who goes to Tampa to represent the state but rather I am voting for the people who will become delegates.

So I need a list of potential delegates who are Ron Paul supporters.

Thanks!

Slate for tomorrow

I have been informed by AZ State Rep for the National Campaign Shawn Dow that they will be providing the Slate tomorrow upon arrival - check in at the Ron Paul Tent when you get there.

The Ron Paul MeetUp (first in the nation!) in Phoenix will have their own 'Hospitality Area' set up with an air-conditioned RV and food and drinks for the day.

We're loading for bear!

See you there,

Ed in Phoenix

p.s. if anyone from the outlying Counties need lodging, we have someone putting three people already, and there's room for at least two more if necessary - see me when you get there. Ed

Rights are like muscles; you must exercise them to keep them fit, or they will atrophy and die.

I have to thank You, Beardeus and Ira

I thank you for all of your hard work in Az guys. I have tried my best to come and be part of this but I have been stuck at my other shop in California. it is a hard battle in Az and I must commend you guys for taking it on. Best of Luck from Kingman! Please update!

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Thanks ATrue! We'll see you

Thanks ATrue! We'll see you soon. I have to leave Nazi Cop Town. I got arrested last Friday again. Two days in Pod F.

So is Pod F a heavy pod Ira?

The last time I was in they told me that Pod C was the one you did not want to end up in. I guess I was lucky because they put me into Pod C and the first night I was there there was a riot in pod C. My luck I got rechecked for contraban and "Hidden" weapons after two guys were killed by shank to kidney "sticks". They then moved me to Pod G and when I got there I was a freaking celebrity because I was just at Pod C the night it happened. What a mess this has all become my fiend,When you are a celebrity for the chance to be in a Pod that had a riot.Lol. Ira, I wish I was static in Kingman to give you a place to land my friend. If you want to come this direction I might be able to hook you up with friends for some effort on your part. How are you set up for "stone findings" at the swap meets? The swap meets in Kingman are kick ass.

I'll have to check out your

I'll have to check out your swap meet. (I've got lots of pretty rocks)

I have a place lined up. Thanks for your offer. A former Constable here moved up there because HE didn't feel safe for him and his wife and has been telling me to leave for over a year. I only turn tail when it's imposible. I'm probably at the end of my rope and if I'm not careful it might get made into a necktie!

My pod was mostly illegals, nothing bad happened.

Looking forward to meeting all of the Paulites in Capital City tomorrow!!!

Every time I was being taken to jail the deputies were apologizing for having to take me! Lol. It really is a different world here man.

Right but from where was he telling Ira to leave? Kingman?

Thanks.

He was telling me to get out

He was telling me to get out of Nazi Cop Town. Here's my latest video endeavor http://www.dailypaul.com/229333/need-help-local-cops-caught-...

Here we are having a little fun on National Chalk The Police Day

Here I am getting arrested after being assaulted at Town Hall, right in front of the Chief of Police and a couple of his hired thugs

Here is Herr Gilbert comparing me to the Tucson Shooter
http://youtu.be/1zHOlbYWHdo

Oh, can't forget about how the Nazi Chief Of Police teamed up with an absolutely phucking retarded councilman and an even dumber judge to take away my guns. (they conspired to do this when they knew I was out of town digging pretty rocks up in Utah
http://youtu.be/endiUqx1G6c

Then there is this incident that happened two weeks after my above arrest at town hall. They were so freaking scared of us that they decided to end ANY opposition voice at the Call To The Public.

Well, you asked....

Other than the guvmint, this is a great place to live!!!!

Due to circumstances in his present position...

I will have to let him explain that if he feels he needs to do so. He is a hero towards liberty in the little town he is in. He has been fighting city hall for quite a while now. I think I have him convinced to come to Kingman from where he is now. I fear his present position may be a lost cause even after all the support he has recieved up to this point in his fight.

Hey Ed!

I'm not a delegate or an alternate, but am I still able to go and observe?

Yes, GO! And bring friends

Yes, GO! And bring friends and signs and t-shirts and buttons and bumperstickers

Cool. Thanks!

I'll see if I can get some friends to go with. Not many of my friends care enough to get involved. Sometimes I don't think I care enough anymore. But I'm doing my best to stay motivated. So many morons in this state.

Contact Matthew Papke. You'll

Contact Matthew Papke. You'll have to prove yourself before he gives you any list

Did you try the campaign yet?

Did you try the campaign yet?

No I have not.

No I have not.

Did you receive the e-mail...

...titled "Just show up" (all caps in subject line) from Matthew Papke?? (Mine had to be retrieved from my ISP's Spam filter page.)

same situation as "beardeus" here...

For obvious reasons, nobody can post a list HERE. Do you have a District leader?? Mine is the organizer of my local Meetup. That is who I will trust first when it comes to getting the RIGHT list of names to vote for. Also...

I believe there will be an "official" Ron Paul mobile headquarters in the parking lot. Will be getting my FOOD there in order to avoid donating to the GOP establishment by buying their concessions, but I suppose that may be a place to inquire about the slate. (Just don't be offended if you are "vetted" before receiving any list.)

7am - at the RP booth

That's the word I got - be there and get updates from our leaders.

I will be doing registration/credentialing for my district and will miss it, but the key is to get there early and prepare for a loooooooong day. Nobody said fighting for liberty would be easy or quick!

RON PAUL!

"The laws of man may bind him in chains or may put him to death, but they never can make him wise, virtuous, or happy." JQA

The List

My recommendation to all our delegates tomorrow is to take a snapshot of our official delegate list with your phone, and then again and again if you see any foulplay. If you get a paper copy of our official slate, put it in your pocket. We don't need the Romney guys getting a copy to try to make fraudulent slates again.

On the subject of secrecy, I suppose it's to our benefit to just focus on us being Republican and wanting to beat Obama. We need to get Ron Paul elected, and that means finding common ground and bringing over all the old guard little by little. The American Revolution wasn't won in a day. It took the irate minority to reassure the common people that the way of liberty was best. Truth hasn't changed. Liberty is always best.

JEEZ!

I freaking almost spit out my hot coffee all over myself when I realized there was a giant Ann Coulter advertisement embedded on this page!

C'mon man!!!!!

we did it in Mass. now lets do it again in Arizona

Romney took over 70% of the vote in massachuessettes but look what we did there. No one paid attention to Arizona and was focused on Michigan. Lets pass out some brooms and sweep this state too! someone needs to create a cartoon of Ron Paul sweeping outlines of states of the floor with a broom and into his bag, possibly even depict Romeny holding his bag with a hole in it and argueing with Obama.

Someone needs to get on

Someone needs to get on making that! that shows the election perfectly

Now that's funny! I can't

Now that's funny! I can't wait to see that cartoon.

Hate email from Romney

I got the following email this morning. I emailed the guy back and we have a little debate going right now. He doesn't even understand the rules of the convention... I will ask that he apologize... Here it is.

"Are you voting in the National Delegate election this Saturday? Please unite around our Republican Platform.

"As you know, there is a strong effort from supporters of Romney's only active opposing candidate to convert core Republican Platform principles to Libertarian policy. "Don't complete the border fence." "Eliminate all aid to Israel today." "Legitimize narcotics." "Abortion policy should be left up to the states (while our Declaration of Independence holds it self evident that we are endowed by our creator with the UNALIENABLE Right to life)." Those are just some of the changes Libertarian minded activists plan for the Republican Party.

"We are the only candidates to state publicly before the election that we oppose the election of Ron Paul National Delegates.

"Please do not split the vote for conservative Republicans. Vote the Platform Republican National Delegate slate in the order you see their names below. When a slate member gets elected then move the lower names up in priority. Please hold to this Platform Republican slate to prevent Ron Paul National Delegates.

"As you may have seen this year, it is a strategy of Ron Paul supporters to bring false slates of candidates to Republican election meetings. We have seen false "slates" that will be passed out this Saturday."

Wait a minute....

Doesn't the declaration of independence give the states legal grounds to make such decisions? With that said, doesn't the Art.1 Sec.1 of the constitution support the separation of church and state? The anti-abortion issue is promoted on religious bases so doesn't that mean the states shouldn't write any law in support of religious focus? Then that means the states have the right to make abortion legal or illegal right? Just sayin'

"Don't complete the border fence"

Umm... dude, we're trying to increase our border defense and stop fiddling with other country's borders. While not denying our citizens way to go to and fro out the country. Fences keep us in!

"Eliminate all aid to Israel today"

Yup, and EVERY OTHER COUNTRY WHILE WE'RE AT IT MATE! Yeah... you seem to forget that little piece. It's not like our unemployment rate is 45% or anything. Rather than use $15,000,000,000 to help out the poor here at home, or the veterans who can't find a job, it MUST go to Israel. Because remember, Israel comes first! :)

"Legalize Narcotics"

Oh of coarse not! You don't wanna use drugs, therefore you need the government to stop you from using drugs... We can't have marijuana legalized. Oh heavens no, that cures cancer and I don't want to cure cancer damnit!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctYBWa7Y6hY

Oh those crazy libertarians, they wanna legalize cocaine! I don't want adults to take responsibility for themselves! I want the government to tell me I can't use it! I mean what's next? Hemp Grove, "Smoke Responsibly"?

You crazy Paulites and your damn radical ideas!
