Precinct chair

Hello all, I am precinct chair for my voting precinct. Turnout can be found at MCRP.org. We had some wins here for liberty, which is good. The important thing is that everyone goes to nationals that can get there. I don't think Texas voting machines could be tampered with. As a RP supporter I was very skeptical and went before the elections committee and asked a lot of questions. The results are such, because of the media's role in the election. The media spins and the people follow, why would you have to rig the election under those terms? We have to keep fighting, and becoming involved in local races. That is where we can win, thinking big is awsome, but honestly I think it is slowing down the liberty movement as a whole.

You just got PAULED!

depends upon how much the . . .

voting machines have been tampered with, I guess--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Romney will be way down compared

To McCain in 2008 in both actual numbers and percentage which bodes very disaster like for Romney who is going to get crushed by Obama.

Romney is the most liberal Republican ever to run and any moron backing him should be tried for being a traitor to this country.

McCain got 51% in the 2008 Texas primary

Something tells me Romney clears that hurdle quite easily tonight.

I dont understand why he didnt campaign at least every other day

throughout Texas with a weekly stop in another primary state!

The money is there. The people are there...

With every event he drew more and more people. And then when we were gaining momentum they stoped! DUH!

An event every other day would have signaled to the Texans that he is in the race.

If it were only Romney and

If it were only Romney and Paul on the ballot, things might be different. But because people are ignorant, they'll assume that since Paul is on the ballot with all of the others who've dropped out, he also dropped out as well and just go with Romney.

Ron Paul will take Texas in a

Ron Paul will take Texas in a landslide. This will build momentum for him causing supporters from the remaining states to flock to the voting booths, ensuring a brokered convention in Tampa. He will then finally clinch the nomination on the 32nd ballot, after Romney delegates have been given enough time to read The Revolution: A Manifesto. After a unanimous vote at the convention, Ron will shift in general election mode. Paul will then take all but 2 of the first 25 contests, after which Obama will announce that he will not be actively campaigning in the remaining 25 states, but will seek to continue gathering superdelegates...What happens from there is anybodys guess.

Lmao

I'm with it.

Wow man, are you high? Let's

Wow man, are you high? Let's come back down to earth now buddy. I love Dr Paul but I say, at best, he gets 20% in Texas. I think even THAT would be a great showing.

Please help Ron Paul win

There is no reason to expect

There is no reason to expect anything more than the last few weeks of voting. Especially since Romney was leading in Texas BEFORE Santorum dropped out.

Look for Romney around 70%. Santorum around 12%. Paul for 10%, and the last 8% mostly going to Gingrich

yep

Romney will at least be in the high 60s, and might be in the low 70s (good for over 100 bound delegates). Santorum and Paul will battle for 2nd place, with each between 10 and 15 percent (15-20 bound delegates each). Gingrich will get last (around 10 bound delegates). There might be a few people voting for "Uncommitted", and "Uncommitted" might get a few bound delegates from it.

Romney has won every county in the last 12 consecutive states, ever since Santorum dropped out. He won every county in Santorum's own home state. He is likely going to win every county tonight. There's an outside chance that Paul's district could be competitive, but it most likely won't be.

hoping for 30% since some counties have reached that recently

If he gets 40% i would be delighted, 50% i would crap myself

30% would be awesome I would

30% would be awesome I would be really happy I am hoping for 20% or more.

Man, guys!

FORGET the "beauty contest". Texas delegates are already selected and ready to converge on Fort Worth next month. It is already a "done deal". All we have to do is watch out for their shenanigans. Steve Munisteri assured me that the Texas county conventions would be fair, which I think he did a fair job of, but keeping his minions at bay in the state convention may be a different story. We shall see.

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
~ Peter Marshall, US Senate Chaplain 1947

Ok then just to clarify is

Ok then just to clarify is Texas a 100% complete beauty contest. Because there are states like South Dakota that the primary actually picks the delegates and is not a beauty contest.

Not a beauty contest

TX delegates will be bound by the results of tonight's popular vote.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

No...it is not a beauty

No...it is not a beauty contest. Don't listen to idiots. The Convention is NEXT week, and even IF every single Romney bound delegate went against the will of hte people (which won't happen) obviously it would be better to NOT have to try to do that.

To call it is a beauty contest just makes people look stupid.

Do you HONESTLY think you know all the rules about how they can and WILL deal with abstaining or voting against he binding popular vote?

You WILL be replaced. and you will waste $1000+ for nothing since you will be replaced for ALL votes.

And it will be legal and within the rules.

Gee...maybe THAT is why Ron Paul has been very clear on this and that he wants Romney delegates to vote for Romney?

Don't you mean that if you

Don't you mean that if you vote for Romney in Tampa, you would have wasted $1000? Everybody is unbound man! What don't you get about that?

juan maldonado

"Everybody is unbound man! What don't you get about that?"

...the fact that it's not true?

Delegates from the primary States are bound, only delegates from the caucus States are unbound. Texas is a primary State, all of its delegates (except for the 3 superdelegates) are bound by the result's of tonight's popular vote. That is a fact.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

They can't force you to vote

They can't force you to vote for anybody.... So you can tell me all 50 states are bound, it still wouldn't matter!

juan maldonado

"They can't force you to vote for anybody"

...if you are bound to Romney, and you vote Paul, they won't count the vote for Paul, and they will count you as voting for Romney - whether you like it or not. And if you are bound to Romney and abstain, they will count you as voting for Romney - whether you like it or not. If you violate the rules and refuse to vote for the candidate to whom you are bound, you will open yourself up to consequences: like being disqualified from voting for the OTHER IMPORTANT BUSINESS at the convention (VP, rules, platform, etc), being kicked out of the party, and possibly even legal consequences under State law.

"So you can tell me all 50 states are bound, it still wouldn't matter!"

...I guess not, clearly you're not going to let a little thing like reality get in your way.

...my solace is that I expect you yourself are not a delegate, so at least you're ignorance is impotent.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

This Texas Delegate will be

This Texas Delegate will be voting for Ron Paul. Ive never been to jail but going in the name of Liberty seems like a worthy cause.

Delegates CANNOT Be Bound At The RNC

Jennifer Sheehan, Legal Counsel for the RNC, plainly stated in a letter to Nancy Lord, Utah National Committeewoman, several weeks before the convention, 'The RNC does not recognize a state's binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose' - Legal statementby the RNC Legal Counsel

If your a delegate do not

If your a delegate do not vote for Romney! Are you crazy man? Let them try it... We got the numbers on our side either way! They replace us with an alternate who's probably a RP supporter. Please don't vote for Romney man! We need every vote!
