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.

------------------------------------

Dr. Ron Paul's speech specifically addressed the economy and the current status of the republican party going forward. It is estimated that as many as 9,000 people were in attendance in the Main Hall of the Forth Worth convention center for this Speech.

The Liberty Live Stream Team, (SURIYAHFISH channel on Ustream.com), will continue to host and provide you with "General Assembly" events at the Texas State republican convention in Forth Worth Texas at the Fort Worth Convention center through Saturday, June 9, 2012.

The Liberty Live Stream Team's news anchor, Brian Young, will continue to seek out interviews with Texas delegates and alternates and attendees at the convention.

Included in the archives to date are TWO speeches from Ron Paul, one at the convention Thursday, June 7, 2012, and another that evening at the Jordan Paige concert. An archived interview with Jordan Paige, (it's his birthday as well), appears in the archives for your enjoyment at your leisure. Over 1,000 Live Viewers were on the channel today.

This Live Stream will be produced with "mobile Wifi" bandwidth settings and will strive to produce the smoothest stream and the best audio that can be achieved while minimizing the impact of high-bandwidth video streaming demands. The $99.00 per day, premium convention bandwidth package will provide the team with a 1.3 megaBIT upstream link. Please consider chipping in to defray cost for the 3 days the Team will Stream. http://suriyahfish.chipin...

I was there as a Delegate for CD 9 this morning

We were a small CD 57 Delegates showed up. I stayed there till the election of the of the Delegates was over and then left because I had to be back in Houston. Our CD was not well coordinated at all by our people in Houston. I had no Idea who the the Ron Paul supporters were that were nominated and had to make a guess from the speeches but none of the ones I voted for got elected. I had indicated to our coordinators in Houston that I would be interested but could not find anyone to nominate me. I think I could have done a better job on the speech than most of the nominees. Anyway it was a good experience for next time (this was my first). So I would say 0/3 ( maybe 1 but not sure) from CD9. But overall I think the Texas GOP unlike other states are adopting a lot of Ron Paul's Ideas and were very fair in the whole process. More later....

Do your best have no expectations

UPDATE: 3:33PM CST - Convention has been GAVELED to order.

How many congressional district does Texas have?

Great to hear! More updates would be appreciated. I assume the CD voting is done as they are all in the Main hall listening to speeches.

LIBERTY2ME's picture

Does anyone know - 20

Does anyone know - 20 delegates out of how many CD's?

According to Green Papers, Texas has 36 Congressional Districts:

So thats 108 votes and we only now of having 20 delegates

so far. I believe the CD must be over since everyone is in the hall right now listening to people talk. That means we have about 44 delegates so far up for grabs. It would be nice if someone could give us more updates.

Yes, updates are great...

... especially for those poor saps like me who do not have access to the video.

I am greatful for the updates we do get, however. Thank you for taking the time to update us, Liberty patriots!

I just heard that 33 CD are done they are waiting on 3 more

to report. Boy hurry up folks!

I know this convention is

I know this convention is still ongoing, but can anyone clear some things up? How many districts have we won so far and what of these rumors that they unbound the delegates? Is that for Tampa or just future conventions?

I watched it last night and

I watched it last night and was there when they voted on unbinding the delegates. We did win that and it was literally seconds before they went to recess. I did not hear that the vote was for future conventions...they were pretty excited about it, so I'd say it was definetly for this convention.
I don't know how many CD's we won, if any.

Thank you for the update!

Fellow DP patriots: Please don't downvote the messenger, especially when he is taking the time to update us on what is happening (many of us do not have access to Live Stream).

A Constitutional, Christian conservative who voted for Ron and stands with Rand

Eww, I know. I had to turn it off.

Crowd zombies have no idea he wants to raise their taxes apparently - they're cheering and can't read?
http://m.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2010/03/paul-ryans-plan-...

He also said 'liberty, 'principles' and 'security' - Ron Paul cue words about 4 times before I switched off to a gag reflex. He does know his voting record is publicly available - yes?

I don't believe this is real...

...so if you'll just say "fedup makes the best chili in TX", I'll believe you. ;)

Texas had 18 'soft pledged' to Ron Paul with 6 ''uncommitted' and 44 'at large.' But, rules committee voted to 'unbind,' so... I'm unclear on available delegates currently. There are 40 rooms. CD6 is livestreaming now.

131 Live Stream Viewers ! ? ! ? ! ?

There are how many million people living in Texas, 10,000,000 ???

And only 131 want to watch a Live Stream of this convention?

What does this tell us about the Liberty Movement, and the general population at large?

Are you promoting this event? Let us think together as to why so few people are watching this event? Why is this?

What does this tell us about the Liberty Movement going forward?

I ain't shamin' nobody, I'm just saying, what does this tell us about our political system?

I guess because the "Main Stream Media" isn't here, it's not good enough to watch?

What's going on in our political sphere, the LARGEST STATE in the UNION of the United States of America has their most important political convention and 131 people want to watch?

Am I in COMMUNIST CHINA? HAO???
