The Liberty Live Stream Team, the SURIYAHFISH channel, has launched a chipin page, a $400.00 limit page, running until this coming monday to assist in defraying the expense for WiFi at the convention at $99.00 per day, and gasoline expenses incurred driving from Oklahoma to Forth Worth and back to Oklahoma.

7 members of the Team crammed into one vehicle and are footing the bill for this entirely out of pocket.

ANY donation, no matter what size, will not only assist in covering cost, it will give the Team in the field a great deal of confidence.

Rule 38 is only applicable if

Rule 38 is only applicable if the state tries to impose a unit rule on all of its delegates. The vast majority of states do not impose a unit rule on their delegates (only a few states do, I think these states amount to something like 500 delegates). See here: http://www.dailypaul.com/231260/concluding-the-argument-betw...

Honestly, it's a bit ridiculous that people keep accusing those of us that want to get to the bottom of things, in a truthful manner, of being "fake people." One to two months ago, we were being ridiculed for saying that Ron Paul had quite a bit of catching up to do if to keep Mitt Romney from getting the nomination, and we were scorned. It's not like we don't want Ron Paul to be President, we do! But, we want people to be realistic, that way people are not caught by surprise and upset when Ron Paul sends out an email like he did (stating he did not have enough delegates to win). Nobody is trying to downplay the great accomplishments we have made so far, but we are trying to be truthful, even though the truth hurts at this point in time.

Go ahead and down vote my post.

THERE IS NOTHING TO BE

THERE IS NOTHING TO BE CONFUSED ABOUT THE NATIONAL CONVENTION RULES STATE. WHY IS EVERYONE PLAYING DUMB.

THE NATIONAL CONVENTION RULE 38 STATES:
No delegate or alternate delegate shall be
bound by any attempt of any state or Congressional
district to impose the unit rule.

Did you read anything I

Did you read anything I wrote? Do you know what the unit rule is?

I am confused by Rule 39....

and where it says that no delegate can be bound.. I do not see it in the printed rules. please clarify..

Texas GOP Rules

Rule 39:
Rule No. 39 - Presidential Electors At the Biennial State Convention in presidential election years, the delegates from each Congressional District shall nominate one (1) Presidential Elector and such nomination shall be presented to the National Nominations Committee; additionally, the National Nominations Committee shall select additional nominees to bring to total number of nominees to the number allowed by law. Each such nominee for Presidential Elector, prior to the report of the National Nominations Committee, shall file with the Chairman of the National Nominations Committee an affidavit in writing as to his commitment to vote for the Republican Party’s nominees for President and Vice President. The report of the National Nominations Committee shall include only nominees who have so filed such affidavit. The report of the National Nominations Committee must include the nominees from the Congressional District who have so filed affidavits. The Convention shall then elect the Presidential Electors. Any vacancy among the Presidential Electors shall be filled by majority vote of the SREC, with the conditions that (1) the person elected to fill the vacancy shall have already filed with the State Chairman an affidavit in writing as to his commitment to vote for the Republican Party’s nominees for President and Vice President and (2) if the vacancy occurs for a person who had been nominated by his Congressional District Caucus at the Biennial State Convention then the SREC shall elect a person who has filed such an affidavit, has made an affiliation with the Republican Party of Texas under Chapter 162 of the Texas Election Code, and resides in that same congressional district at the time he is elected by the SREC to be a replacement Presidential Elector.

Rule 38 does state this:

Section 9. At-Large Delegate and Alternate Entitlements For the purpose of determining the entitlement to at-large delegates and alternates by candidates, the provisions of this section shall apply, as follows: a. More than Fifty Percent (50%) of Vote Received by Candidate: A candidate receiving more than fifty percent (50%) of the votes cast in the Presidential Primary canvassed on a statewide basis shall be entitled to all at-large delegates and alternates allocated to Texas under The Rules of the Republican Party.

Section 10. Pledge of Delegates and Alternates. a. Commitment to Candidate: By assenting to nomination on a Presidential candidate’s slate, each delegate and alternate representing a Presidential candidate becomes pledged to the Presidential candidate on whose slate the delegate and alternate is nominated in accordance with subsection b of this section. b. Length of Commitment: A person who is elected as a delegate or alternate to the National Convention on the slate of a Presidential candidate by the State Convention to represent that particular Presidential candidate at the National Convention and who does not resign from the position is pledged to support that Presidential candidate at the National Convention until the candidate is nominated or until the delegate or alternate is released from the pledges as follows: 1. First (1st) nomination convention ballot: delegate or alternate shall be released from the pledge only in the event of death, withdrawal, or by decision of the candidate. 2. Second (2nd ) nominating convention ballot: delegate or alternate shall be released from the pledge if the candidate has failed to receive twenty percent (20%) or more of the total vote cast on the preceding ballot; or by the decision of the candidate; 3. Third (3rd) and subsequent nominating convention ballots: delegates and alternates are released from any pledge.

So what is correct?

WHY ARE U TRYING SO HARD TO

WHY ARE U TRYING SO HARD TO BE RIGHT IF YOUR A RON PAUL SUPPORTER EVEN THOUGH YOUR CLEARLY WRONG? THIS IS COMING FROM A POOR KID IN THE SOUTH THAT HAS NO INCOME WHATSOEVER.

I am trying hard to understand all of this...

as it is very confusing to me (obviously). I just don't want to feel disappointed as I did with the results of WA and MO and then get to August and not even be on the ballot because we did not meet plurality... That's all..

NATIONAL CONVENTION 39

SHES REFFERING TO THE NATIONAL CONVENTION RULES SHE EVEN SAYS IT!!!!!!

that makes sense then...

and would explain why I was confused... I just didn't see it or hear the national convention rule.. Rule 39 of the National Convention states:

RULE NO. 39 Record Vote If a majority of the delegates of any six (6) states severally shall demand a roll call vote, the same shall be taken of the states in the order hereinbefore established.

Thanks for clearing it up.. Six states have to call for this??

THEY DEMONSTRATE A PLURALITY

THEY DEMONSTRATE A PLURALITY BY THEIR VOTES AND VOICES

THOSE WHO ARE DELEGATES (10

THOSE WHO ARE DELEGATES (10 STATES ATLEAST WILL HAVE A PLURALITY OF MOSTLY RON PAUL DELEGATES) WILL GO TO THE CONVENTION AND CALL FOR IT. THIS IS NOT OVER PEOPLE NEED TO STAND UP AND DONT BUY IN TO THIS RAND PAUL BULLSHIT. HISTORY IS COMING TO A TURNING POINT. WE CANT GIVE UP THIS IS WHY RON PAUL WILL WIN!

Susie 4 Liberty's picture

i DID have a choice...

Stay in my SD Caucus chaired by CROCKER - and VOTE - or go to his break-out. Took so long to check-in - 1 1/2 hrs? - we missed RP AND the next one...

Remember that name - although I 'think' he's 'retired'... CROCKER

He's made me crawl on the concrete...and pushed with no water...no restrooms - for 5 1/2 hrs. And he used his postition with the GOP bulley pulpit to blame me?! For wanting to choose MY delegates to the State Convention by Precinct?!

And wasn't the only time I was disparaged there - on the mike.

And I'm not young - anymore - have become 'olden' somehow. BUT I'm also awake...

Susie 4 Liberty

you must check this out

To you Texans who attended...I know we don't know the

final number of delegates....but if you had to guess would you reckon 1/3 of the delegates might be for Ron Paul or 1/2 for Ron Paul or do you think it could even be over half?

When I look at the video of Ron Paul's Texas speech it just appears that 100% of the audience is on fire for him...

I wondered if you have any gut feelings about the percentages of delegates that may be for Ron Paul? Just your opinion,...you won't be held to it.

Percentage of Paul Support

The people in the convention hall during Dr. Paul's speech were all on fire for him because it was a break-out session. Other sessions and caucuses were going on at the time, and people were split up all over the place.

During the actual convention business, the convention hall was about twice as full (most of the time), so judging by that one might estimate somewhere around 50% were Ron Paul delegates. 5,880 was the official number of delegates on Friday. Also, that number went down to a little over 3,000 by Saturday, when the business of electing delegates to the national convention took place.

It is possible this worked in Ron Paul's favor, because past experiences tell me that the ones who went home were not Ron Paul supporters, thus giving the RP delegation a stronger voting percentage.

I convinced an establishment friend to go to the Paul Speech

She came out crying. Literally crying. Her first words were "We have been duped".

She voted with us on the delegates.

They wake up slow and hard.

Have any more friends?

If you have any more establishment friends, get them to watch the speech online. I also uploaded a shorter speech from later that night. It's about 10 minutes and covers much of the same topics.

http://youtu.be/VOpMVN-wP6s

I am one who was "converted" recently because I did my own research. However, instrumental in this process was other Ron Paul supporters befriending me and not treating me like an idiot for not being one of them. Keep up the great work!!

Back from TX with the rest of

Back from TX with the rest of the Liberty Live Stream Team. Been busy and plus trying to catch up on a little sleep. I'll try to catch up on the posts here on the Daily Paul and give more information and feedback about what we observed and learned at the TX convention.

What the heck is this?

Get outta here man

clarification requested...

I have actually heard something like this before (that the below person seems like is trying to say..). How does a candidate qualify for the Tampa ballot? I know he/she needs to win at least 5 states, but what is a qualifying won state?

1)candidate wins from the delegates won at the STATE covention - the binding does not matter because of rule 38?
or
2)candidate wins from delegates won at a STATE convention AND cannot be bound to another candidate?

or somethng else that I'm not listing here.

Can someone clarify?
Steve Parent, you out there?

Rule 38 does not apply to state convention results...

Rule 38 has to be called at the convention and during the convention. Rule 38does not apply when it comes to plurality or if a candidate qualifies fog the ballot or not. Plurality from what I have found is the majority of delegates that are bound to the first round of voting. I have emailed Doug Weed to find out what states we actually have plurality in because based on this info I can only officially count 2 states for Dr. Paul officially. Need a definitive answer on this because I want to know for sure if we have qualified for the ballot otherwise our message will grow but we will not even be able to vote for our candidate of choice.

And no I am not a troll. Trying to figure things out before further disappointment.

LIBERTY2ME's picture

so then if RP wins TX, TX

so then if RP wins TX, TX would count because they did call rule 38 at the convention. Correct?

No rule 38 does not work at state conventions...

And if you watch the video and listen he actually says 2nd round delegates are not bound. Not the first round. Texas I believe still unfortunately goes to Romney no matter what for plurality since he won the primary and at least 96 of those were based on the primary results.

Breathtaking!!

I wish I would have watched Dr Paul's speech before Rand endorsed Romney. Ron Paul HAS NOT CONCEDED! Ron Paul IS STILL RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT! This speech was probably one of the strongest he has ever given. Anyone that has NOT watched it should do so immediately. I no longer have any questions about Ron Paul going ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE CONVENTION! We must ALL understand that he is standing stronger at this moment than he ever has before! He knows what will happen if Romney or Obama win....you can hear him tell us in every word, every phrase and every gesture of that speech. HE IS IN IT TO WIN and WILL NOT COMPRISE! Forget Rand and what the campaign is saying. We are at the top of the game right now and need to fight the hardest that we can to win delegates and take EVERY SINGLE ONE to Tampa!

Stay the Course! We need to find a way to contribute to make sure that every delegate and alternate who needs financial help for transportation etc to make sure they get there. This is our chance to show the corrupt political system that we are taking back our country. Our LAST CHANCE and we have NOTHING TO LOSE!!

Several RP delegates that were present for Dr Paul's speech said that even the Ronmey delegates had tears from this speech. We won't know if he may have won the nomination IF WE DON'T TRY! If delegates had given up on JFK he never would have become President...Johnson and the establishment knew that he had NO CHANCE of winning but that did NOT stop Kennedy from running around the country gathering delegates and it did not stop the delegates from going to the convention and winning it for their candidate! It is now up to US to finish what we started and WIN or LOSE, the Powers That Be will know that we have JUST BEGUN TO FIGHT! RON PAUL 2012!!!

that makes Rand that much

that makes Rand that much more of a scumbag!
