Come on. Put your money where your mouth is. Support our delegates NOW!Submitted by Teafortwo on Mon, 08/13/2012 - 03:25
$5? $10 $20 ??? they are going at great expense on our behalf and will come home with the prize if we can fund them.
Look at how much it costs...WOW!
Please step up to the plate NOW! Time is of the essence.
When I put my name in the hat to become a National Delegate, I had no idea that it would become so expensive, and that most of the entities that I thought would help, would not be interested in the slightest.
If you haven't looked, Tampa decided with the convention coming, to multiply the price of everything to extraordinary heights. The delegation of Nevada wanted to get a house together, & we found one that was perfect and around $1600/week - GREAT! The homeowner turned around & raised the rent to $10,000! Then, the RNC rented just about everything they could find in town, so availability was also a problem. Our host hotel, the Doubletree Inn is ONLY $250/night!!!! So, when you start adding up almost two weeks in lovely Tampa in August, it gets pretty scary when you can't even afford to take a decent vacation.
In Tampa, I look forward to being a force on the Platform Committee. I have been working with other RP State Platform Cmte people, and implementing their ideas. I want to be a representative for all of us in Tampa. One of my roommates in Tampa is on the Rules Committee. If it's possible (they might not let guests in), I want to go to those meetings, too, as they start after Platform. We must have FAIR rules, and get all of our delegations seated. Nevada was lucky and unchallenged.
I've had my first telephone conference call with the RP campaign. Unfortunately, it did not go well. The campaign is not optimistic about the nomination, and our delegation took great offense to that. Nevada is comprised of fighters, and we are going to fight till the end. We will not leave the hall, we will not be forced to vote for Romney. I will be spending all my time after the Platform Cmte meetings, networking, trying to find the best way to success at the convention.
I'm also a part of the suit in the 9th Circuit with the Lawyers for Ron Paul. Richard Gilbert & I will be talking. He is sure about his plan, and I want to help him implement it. Convention week, we are staying in the same place as the Louisiana and Texas delegations. We will spend a big effort trying to win over delegates. If we get the decision from the judge that everyone can unbind, we will be working nonstop on gathering votes.
So, if you have some spare bucks to send me, THANKS!!
I wrote a bit about what I want to do, so that you'd know I'm not just going to Tampa to get a tan & wear a funny hat at a convention. I have work to do, and I take the responsibility very seriously.
I am YOUR delegate in Tampa!!!!!!!!!!!!!
