Hope we can do it! GO TAMPA! FOR US AND RON PAUL!

More Generous Contributions Made

Thank you VERY MUCH for the new contributions.

MUCH APPRECIATED!

Help us flood the RNC with Ron Paul chocolate bars!

As you well know, the RNC in Tampa Florida is fast approaching. Ron Paul has asked his supporters to line the highway to the convention with signs of the R3voLution. (Consider It Done Ron). As part of these actions we are working on the project to flood the RNC (Delegates/Alternates) with Ron Paul Chocolate Bars. Doing this will have a big impact at the convention. Conventions can be long & arduous events. People get hungry & tired (we know, we were delegates for Ron Paul & due to the attempted shenanigans of the GOP establishment, our convention lasted 5 hours longer than it should have, but we swept every delegate/alternate at the convention!)

During the RNC in Tampa, when people get hungry & want a snack, Ron Paul Chocolate Bars will be there. In the hands of the Ron Paul delegates & alternates Ron Paul Choc Bars will reach out to the other candidates delegates/alternates with chocolate. A friendly, non invasive, effective approach & gesture of friendship.

Also, the fact that Ron Paul Chocolate Bars will be all through the convention will make an impact. Ron Paul Chocolate Bars were at our state convention & we had many Romney people comment on how impressive it was that RP had such a presence! It also began friendly conversations about key issues of the day.
Ron Paul Chocolate Bars are an impressive product with special quotes on the back of the bars.

Help us show our presence at the RNC, not just with signs of the R3voLution, Delegates/Alternates, but with Chocolate Love. Remember there are key quotes on the back of each bar, with liberty websites on the back. I will tell you this: RP Chocolate Bars will be the only candidate Chocolate Bars at the RNC, because Ron Paul's message is the only one that could attract such ardent, activist zeal, & dedication. We are proud to support Ron Paul (the ideas man). And we intend to share that zeal with others!...At the RNC.

Purchase your Ron Paul Chocolate Bars for Delegates/Alternates At
www.RonPaulBar.com

Put a note in the pay pal purchase "RNC Delegates/Alternates". We will get the bars to appropriate delegates/alternates. For every purchase made we will donate bars to delegates/alternates to share at the convention! We will hand deliver them in Tampa! Consider making bulk purchases of 100 bars or more for huge impact! This is our time to shine & make our presence known.

And see Ron Paul Chocolate Bars in Tampa at P.A.U.L. Fest, The Ron Paul Rally At The Sun Dome, The After Party For Ron Paul & The RNC.

RP Choc Bar Owner

Are you the owner?

I responded with a request for a chip-in and discounts close to cost; not for you to spam every thread with the same LONG message the mods are deleting.

So, where's the chip-in? Can we even trust you now, or will you just take the money?

???

Who's gonna be in charge of logistics in Tampa? Refrigeration and distribution over how many days?

Thanks. (May be a good idea?)

I've updated all I have at this time. (see main message above)

Thank you.

THANK YOU, CONTRIBUTORS! ;D

National Alternate IOWA chip-in Update

Chelsea's chip-in has been updated since she has received local personal donations recently.

Old chip-in showed $1795 left

Her new chip-in shows a need of 750$

Please correct to $750 when you can to accurately reflect.

Here is an updated link for her chip-in http://chelsyaskren.chipin.com/national-alternate-to-the-rnc

Chelsea called me and asked if I would help her update this. Thank you for all the support and on to Tampa!

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but the

Congratulations, Hawaii and Missouri!

Two more delegates funded. That makes 6. Although, one may need additional funding? (If so, change your chip-in amount and I'll update.) ;)

Thank you, very much, Contributors!!! :D

.
[Note: I'm still updating/adding.]

Apologies / Thank Yous

I'm sorry I'm a little behind on verifications and updates.

I'm trying to catch up - hopefully within the hour.

I think it's important to verify / confirm / update, when there are so many postings going up - many with no confirmable info. provided or available. So, I'm doing my best.

Thank You for your:

Patience
Trust
Requests
Contributions (Extra Thanks and Appreciation) :)
Updates
Messages of thank you and appreciation
Support and Team Work

My appreciation back to you. :)

[Any suggestions on protecting our delegates' rights and safety?
Any brave delegates need hidden cameras, megaphones, other?
Should we collect for that? Or our private bodyguards/security as 'guests'?
Please see #4 under Important Threads in main message above.
I'm continually thinking of you, praying for your safety and sending well-wishes.]

PS: Shuttle Van

Would pre-arranging for our own shuttle van and schedule be helpful?

Tips/suggestions if anyone knows?

Thanks.

Fundraiser

I've booked a Super 8 Hotel 15 miles "up" from the Convention area for only $815 (no deposit required), which is just one-third of what the RNC was charging for my assigned hotel. This will be quite a hassle trying to meet up with shuttles in for credentialing every morning, but still much easier than what our first delegations experienced so no complaints in that regard here.

I'm still quite a bit short on airfare, fees, car rental, etc. and have decided that I'll cancel the hotel reservations, throw a mattress in the back of my van, and drive down to to my job if I must!

I am, however, a bit weary of staying outside of the security zone in a hotel where protesters may be staying as well, so I'm keeping the fundraiser alive for just a bit longer just in case I can raise enough to secure the RNC hotel, but in the end, whatever will be will be.

Thank you!

Michigan Delegates

I have been unable to confirm names. Is there a MI delegation posted anywhere?

I'm almost ready to post your link, but I've declined another Michigander 3x.

:(

Any help please?

Thanks!

Verification

Have you updated your chip-in?

I can verify 1 delegate from PA CD17 for what he may need($2000?).

But your chip-in is set at $4000, and I cannot confirm the other delegate?

Was someone else elected instead?

Thanks for your help.

Other Delegate

Just found a complete list. All verified.

I fly from Nevada to Tampa on Sunday!

Help send me to Tampa. I'm a National Delegate and we are going to do everything we can to get Ron the nomination, and we won't back down!
I'm spending two weeks in Tampa serving on the Platform Cmte & attending the convention.
