Campaign Update -June 6

Just logged in. Many of you would have gotten this, but I didn't see it as an active post. I guess it all boils down to how one defines 'bound delegate' when determining whether this is bad or good news.

Dear Jacinda,

I wanted you to get an update from me personally, since we have some great news!

Due to the smart planning of our campaign and the hard work and diligence of supporters like you, we stand to send nearly 200 bound delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa. This number shatters the predictions of the pundits and talking heads and shows the seriousness of our movement.

What's more, we will send several hundred additional supporters to Tampa who, while bound to Romney, believe in our ideas of liberty, constitutional government, and a common-sense foreign policy.

When it is all said and done, we will likely have as many as 500 supporters as delegates on the Convention floor. That is just over 20 percent!

And while this total is not enough to win the nomination, it puts us in a tremendous position to grow our movement and shape the future of the GOP!

I hope every one of you continues the fight we have advanced so well this year. I hope you will finish your local and state conventions, and, if you were selected as a national delegate, that you will head to Tampa in August to force the Republican Party to listen to the voice of liberty.

We have never had this kind of opportunity. There will be hundreds of your fellow supporters in Tampa who will be ready and willing to push the Republican Party back to its limited government, liberty roots.

There are many issues to fight for in Tampa. Also, candidates like Justin Amash, Kurt Bills, and Thomas Massie need your support as we move into the fall. Across the country, supporters of liberty have won local office and leadership positions in the GOP, and we need to keep working.

Our delegates’ presence must be felt both in Tampa and in years to come.

Stand up for what we believe in. Be respectful. And let the establishment know that we are the future of the Party and of the country.

Our Revolution is just getting started. You'll be hearing plenty from me as we approach Tampa and the fall elections. You'll also be hearing of important developments on Audit the Fed and Campaign for Liberty.

I hope you'll continue to stand with me as we go forward. Our Revolution could not have come this far without you.

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

Ron Paul ... forever.


The truth about delegates may be bitter. But we need to continue to fight. We should inform the public about Ron Paul, liberty, and the movement.

Ron Paul ... forever.

why people vote this down?

...I like this headline and we need a thread to talk about it, I do not want to talk where the headline says "RP admits defeat". because that is not the content of this message.

Ron Paul ... forever.

So, if I got this right..

1,570 delegates to the convention.
If Ron Paul has 20% (314) and
Romney has 80% (1,256)
There is no way in hell, even by abstaining, that we can pull this off?
Other then by the will of God?

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

"Romney has 80%"

herein lies the miracle im hoping for. That of those 80%, enough are actually Ron Paul supporters...AND that they are permitted to vote their conscience AND that most of the true Romney delegates don't bother going to Tampa- figuring that there is no need as "Romneys already won". In other words, we need a miracle- but there is plenty of room for one.

Haven't heard any news of Ron Paul making the call

to Romney.

Hopefully Not

I hope that Ron Paul doesn't call Romney to congratulate him on a win. Remember that Ron Paul doesn't deal in absolutes, so he may still have hope for a win, even if it's a slim chance. This is the same reason I doubt he'll ever endorse Romney and tell us to get behind him. (Unless Mitt has a huge change of heart...but I don't think I could believe that since he's already changed so many times!)

my thoughts exactly

I hold hope that the reason that he mentions bound delegates in his update is because he knows that anyone committed enough to be a delegate understands that they may not actually be bound. There is NO mention whatsoever about supporting Mitt. We also need to remember that he has to say SOMETHING to us or the GOP will see him as aggressive. I do hope that all delegates intend to continue on to Tampa and vote their conscience- bound or not. I believe that is what Ron Paul wants.

Still awaiting confirmation

from a credible source.

Just Wait

I was skeptical as well, but I just received the email a few minutes ago. You'll probably get it soon.

This doesn't mean that we stop fighting! Do EVERYTHING we can for the cause of liberty, including getting Ron Paul elected even if he doesn't think it will happen!


not surprising.
