The total Delegates for Maine is 24. We can elect 21 and we did that.

"We even took a decisive share of the State Republican Committee for Ron Paul supporters. Now WE are in the driver's seat of the Maine Republican Party." - Eric Brakey

15 = Elected RP Delegates

It was glorious!
Liberty prevailed.
We did it with hard work and playing by the Rules.

The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations. This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution

Show Up!!!

Every delegate votes matters. Things may have gone much differently here had we not won the convention chair (by only four votes). If my buddies and I had stayed home (which of course would have been out of the question) we would have lost. Save your fishing trip or wedding invitation for another day. This is a big deal.

That is sooo true. The

That is sooo true. The convention chair was seated by 4 votes, I believe.

1118 to 1114

1118 to 1114

EVERY vote counts!

In before Maine's "shadow

In before Maine's "shadow party."

So are the Maine MSM

asking Romney if he is going to run Third Party? (aka:Nevada)

Stopped for lunch on my way to my convention. Very encouraging news. Way to go Maine. You have set a fine example and show what is possible with organization and determination. Looking forward to posting some encouraging news later in regards to Michigan.

So......................

What does this really mean? What are the practical effects of this goin forward? What is this goin to help accomplish goin forward? Im curious on the low-down.

The (50 or so?) committee selections

may have been the most important thing that happened for the state, as I understand it. In 2013 when they take the positions they will appoint state GOP positions within the party and of course the appointments will be only proven Liberty members.

The Maine state republicans in 2013 and beyond will be for individual liberty, personal responsibility, sound money states rights and the Constitution, ect...

In Maine, we are the Republican party, everyone else may as well change their affiliation to (D). ;)

Where's the Youtube of the moment to share?

Love to see it.

Maine is one of my favorite states...a poem for Maine...

Because of states like Maine,
we have the chance to win the game.
They know what to do and did it right,
now the Romney team could go fly a kite.
Oh, what wonderful news from this lot,
our hope sings loud for defeated we are not.
We need others with such remarks,
to build and build the joy in our hearts.
Sing it Maine you deserve it true,
you're the shining example of red, white, and blue.

I dedicate my impromptu poem to the Paul supporters in Maine.
Go Paul go

I say: if you can't make it better, don't make it worst!

The Maine Republican Convention - a poem 5/6/12

My girlfriend wrote this when we got back from the Maine Convention.

Disgruntled dis-organizers
Volcano of anger erupting
Unchecked by a system so broken
Conflicted structures obliterated
A sense of camaraderie lost to the bitter winds of change
Two against one, five against five hundred
Bright sky-squares thrust in the stale air
The red badges of delegates marching
Through the thunder of yeas and nays
Crowd-surfing-vote-runners
Pushing the cause that pounds a
Red, White, and Blue beat
While the paper dolls of establishment
Sound the call to only Red
They melt in the caustic sweat of a full auditorium
And leave disintegrating fibers
On unforgiving chairs

excellent poem.

I feel like I was there after reading it. Great summary of the day!

Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down.
