Thank you for your dedication, Hoosier Liberty delegates!

Of course we all know that these delegates are all "bound"

to Mitt Romney first round.

Attention All Delegates! Break your "Binds" and vote for the Constitution in Tampa! Ron Paul 2012

goodness...sorry...meant to post this in arkansas

My most humble apologies

Attention All Delegates! Break your "Binds" and vote for the Constitution in Tampa! Ron Paul 2012

wink, wink.

wink, wink.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Victory!!!

I assume???

9-11 was a panda job.

Bumping...

... Were any Liberty patriots selected to be Tampa delegates today at the Indiana State Convention? Thanks.

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

Don't think so

Not hearing anything positive out of Indiana or Illinois this weekend. They both were very well prepared for us (even though our delegation was in the minority at both) and played games with us the entire way through the process. Texas will be the highlight of our weekend.

But that won't make me give up in my state. Time to get behind Richard Mourdock and keep spreading the message of liberty so all may hear!

Is the Indiana State Convention still going on?

Does anyone have any further news of the proceedings? Thank you!

Indiana convention

I spoke to someone driving with a delegate to the convention. Term limited Governor Mitch Daniels gave a speech and rode out on a Harley, Mike Pence candidate for Gov. was lightly booed.

Most of the Paulies had left. The remaining crowd was old neocon and our delegate thought the lady speaker was intentionally speaking in a too soft to hear voice.

Most of our Liberty delegates left early??

Say it isn't so... Please tell me that they didn't leave before the Tampa delegate voting took place!?

Also, if it was our people booing... I think that we really need to clean that up. It may give a momentary sense of gratification, but it makes for bad media and for bad relationships with GOP people that we will need to work with down the road.

Thank you for the report!

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

Good news!

Just heard from some Indiana delegates that the GOP platform in Indiana has been ammended to include transparency and AUDIT THE FED! Even in my state which is full of Neocons, progress is being made! Still not sure on the delegates yet.

Just another person trying to change the world... :)

That is very good news!

Thank you for the update!

Does anyone have anything to report?

Thank you!

If anyone has a contact inside the Convention...

... who can give us updates, that would be really helpful. Thank you in advance!

Indiana. As I understand it..

I briefly spoke to someone at the convention hall a few minutes ago. At the Indy convention tonight, the Paulies were in a minority and the old guard was able to fend off attempts to suspend the rules. I didn't get a lot of specifics, but the Romney slate received the most votes. There will be voting for some state candidates tomorrow.

I must say I feel betrayed by Rand Paul and disappointed by the campaign.

According to Green Papers...

... 16 unbound At Large Tampa delegates remain to be selected on Saturday:

Is this information incorrect? If not, then we need to get any missing Liberty delegates and alternates to the Convention for the upcoming Saturday session. Also, each of our delegates already at the Convention need to stay resolute and return to action later today. Some of the Establishment delegates may leave early, especially if they think they have the Convention safely under their control. Please do your best to turn the situation around, Hoosier patriots! Thank you!

It certainly wouldn't hurt to express a little optimism, however

Go, Indiana State Convention Liberty delegates and alternates!

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

Agreed

Guess I'm just little sad about how this all has gone down. My cynical side is hard to keep at bay these days. You never know, stranger things have happened. Keep up the optimism, this crazy world needs more of it!

Below a comment was made about us having the wrong focus

which is currently on Rand Paul, not on the task at hand. For God's Sake everyone, we need to wake up!

Focus on our task at hand, and let the chips fall where they may! Why Rand did this nobody really knows, so we WASTE time in idle speculation, which I too have done. But, that is wasting valuable time and energy, specifically for those having to go to the conventions, etc.. So, let's start focusing!

betty

Bump!

Ron Paul 2012!!!

INDIANA CONVENTION

BUMP!

Bump!

I too would like to know what is happening there!
