Take A Deep Breath Yall

I can sense the growing chaos and energy about to hit max level. This is a really pivotal time and we need to take a deep breath...step back and get our heads. Let's not fall for as many tricks as possible and stay connected. There's gonna be all kinds of enemy activity and attacks. So to all the REAL Ron Paul supporters I say: Stay calm and focused and use your best judgement on what the consequences of your actions will be.

You know what I'm saying. MAY THE FORCE BE WITH US.

5.
the remnant of a legislature, council, etc., after a majority of the members have resigned or been expelled.

from:
http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_a_rump_convention_in_politics
Answer:

A meeting of members from a larger convention who secede and organize their own convention elsewhere.

From what I saw it was after a majority resigned (or at least the majority of Romney supporters)....so in that sense it was a 'rump' session
However
I personally feel it was just a continuation of the convention after moving to the parking lot.

The only thing that worries

The only thing that worries me is that there is only one easily googleable significant example of a rump convention and that was the 1860 democratic convention. The rumpers lost their bid to have their guy and the whole ordeal probably really was an attempt to fracture the party to cause a secession by having a republican president.

It was ugly and the rump convention was never deemed legitimate, though perhaps it might have worked. You know hindsight...

yea

WE are reaching critical mass!!

We were way out gunned

My small town GOP is huge. I only made it as far as district alternate, but that was a start. After the precinct/County convention, I started going to the Monthly GOP meetings. They are mostly the old guard, with a few middle aged, or younger sprinkled in here and there. The old guard and others are really nice people, and I treat them nice as they treat me nice. Not once of any of the meetings I have attended was I asked who I voted for, nor do I ever over hear anyone talking about any of the presidential candidates with the exception of Obama.

I am hoping to make small steps in waking up the old guard with what I can only describe as the slow boiling frog syndrome, and tell them softly and gently the water in this GOP is getting pretty hot.

In other words, to change what has become of the GOP, you really do have to get involved, and help them out from the inside. You have to be there and get involved to make the change you want to see.

At our state convention, 75

At our state convention, 75 percent of the old guard from my LD that I talked to were nice to me dispite my RP affiliation. I showed common courtesy and was shown welcoming respect. I was given helpful tips about how to become a Precinct Committeeman. We made friendly conversation and I was asked why I support RP. I took the opportunity to work the NDAA into my answer. The man had no idea of what it was. My answer perked some eavesdropping ears followed by nodding heads.

Many of them would be on our side if we could preface our views with agreement with their existing beliefs. For example, "there are terrorists who want to kill us but we must use our moral legal system to prove it lest we be labeled terrorists ourselves."

RP supporters have been treated horribly. Aggressiveness is justified but doesn't make inroads. Becoming a Precinct Committeeman and making logical, persuasive arguments is working for me and those RP supporters who've led me there.

The media has misrepresented us. When we get the real message out many of our old guard PCs will come to our aid and put forth Liberty-minded candidates.

And to make matters worse,

Obama barely gets the mention of his "gay marriage agenda" out of his mouth, and already we have half a ton of gay marriage posts by the "We're queer and we're here" Obamabots trying to push his agenda for him here.

Freedom is for everyone

Freedom is for gay and straight,,, so good they are here. WELCOME! Get government out of my damn relationship. I'm straight and dont need a fucking government OK to license to get married. fuck that!

Warning my comments may anger a lot of highly educated people who have been taught a lie

Dang! this sounds like...

the Alimo! well why not, lets give 'em hell..

"Hell is empty, and all the devils are here" (Shakespeare)
RP 2012~ Intellectual Revolution.

What?

Alimo is in Mozambique.

THE Alamo is in Texas.

Remember the ALAMO. Remember Goliad.

Thus says the LORD: “ Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
Jeremiah 6:16

Ya gotta be cool

Ya gotta be wiser (as the old song used to say).

Here are facts, people: Obscenities and demonstrations that can be interpreted as rudeness turn people off. The GOP elite has pegged us as trouble makers and the MSM is buying into it. We've all seen movies where the good guy is made to look like a lunatic; that's the game their playing with us. Every time we fall for it, it make it harder for Dr Paul. Every convention, at every level, needs RP supporters in great numbers, and with parliamentarian at the ready. We've seen it work and we've seen the consequences when we aren't prepared and disciplined.

As an example, I've seen the "RP supporters boo Romney's son" reports all day long. I've checked the comments and too many RP supporters are engaged in emotional gainsaying with others. What is needed is calm and sticking to the facts. There's video refuting the story! The longer video should be edited to show the speach beginning to end, uploaded and referenced. People are reading the story and believing it because instead of showing them the reality we're arguing with them. This is not productive.

As another example, the violation of Rule 11. So far this is a 'no story' as far as MSM is concerned. If we bring it up in comments, support it with links and quotes of the rule. Don't be distracted by the insults and name-calling on the other side.

Finally, folks, we've got to stop the name-calling ourselves. The "white Obama" heckles, etc., have got to go. This is a crucial time. Such things as this and what I've said above can make or break us at this point in time. Our message is liberty, remember? That means we need to show respect to opposing opinions and stay on message, no matter how provoked.

The stakes are too high. We've got an urgent message, a great candidate who can bring positive constitutional change that will result in increased prosperity for everyone, and the growing numbers to do something that hasn't happened in this country in over a hundred years.

Let's not screw it up! The future is too important!

The GOP establishment

are the ones on the attack, doing all the dirt, defrauding the public, and showing themselves to be worthless criminals.
Then, to deflect that from themselves, they accuse the RP people of what the GOP establishment has been actually doing.

This is the mark of communists. This is exactly what communists have done for more than 80 years. They accuse YOU of what THEY are doing.
This is characteristic of their behavior.

And so we have another indicator that the neocons are simply leftist infiltrators who have taken over.
If you know the left and the methods of the left, the characteristic markings are ALL OVER the neocons.
They are NOT what they are trying to claim to be.
They are subversive leftists.

Please remember this!

Please remember this!: What would Ron Paul do?
Just ask yourself that.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

*Bump*

Yes!! Just keep this in mind --it totally answers so many questions. What would Ron Paul do?

Wonderful post!

Thank you!

Do not let TPTB divide us

Do not let TPTB divide us into factions. We all have different personal viewpoints on probably just about everything. There are jocks, nerds, black and white people, jews, muslims, christians, indians, asians, people who love and hate wal-mart, Mcdonalds, and prefer Burger King. None of that matters. Mankind was created to love liberty.

One world, under government, with power and money for the elite

Every one needs to work to make sure tour Sheriff is an Oath Keeper and will do what it takes to enforce the Constitution and Liberty.

Citizens can not fight the Federal Government but the local and state government can.

Hell yeah The Force!!

I've been a padawan of Ron Paul for a long time now. I think the force has grown strong in all of us. The Emperor has some tricks up his sleeve though. Remember in episode two when padme says "So this is how the republic (democrocy) dies, with thunderous applause"? Yeah...lets avoid that. May the force be with you.

Not with a bang, but with a whimper.

What in the world is a "padawan?"
