Sarah Palin's 'Palin For President' is Going After the GOP Nomination

Today I received several big envelopes and a CD addressed to NATIONAL DELEGATE CALIFORNIA.

Inside the envelopes are well written letters and reasons why I should vote for Sarah Palin.

As soon as I saw it, I thought: This information is being sent to me from Palin's grassroots, who have experience at RNCs. The message, the timing, everything is well organized and well done.

It's appealing to both Mitt Romney and Ron Paul delegates, if not others, as there are issues that are definitely not for a Mitt fan, though I have never met one, just based on what' I've read in MSM.

I never thought that as a National Delegate I would be receiving these envelopes. It's not being done on the cheap.

Does anyone know if we mailed out anything to national delegates? I don't know of anything that we did. Honestly, after seeing it, I feel that those who are grassroots organizers and have been delegates dropped the ball. This is not a campaign effort as Palin does not have a presidential campaign. It looks like the grassroots we had decided to go to Palin.

Any other National Delegates getting anything?

1. Dear Delegate, Congratulations on being selected as a delegate to attend the 2012... Thank you for your participation in this very important event. Sincerely, yadda yadda. It also contains Rule 38 :-)

4. DVD movie with menu and chapter title selections, that I created using clips of Romney and Ron Paul speaking on their own behalf. There are no outside opinions or slander contained in the dvd, it is all based upon recorded fact; everything is straight out of the horses own mouths. Furthermore, nobody cut Romney down in any of this material. He did that all on his own :-)

Had you downloaded and viewed everything before inserting mouth into foot: 1. You may have decided to participate, 2. If not participate, then maybe present this to your other peers and "colleagues", or 3. Done nothing with it except maybe bump the threads to give it more exposure so that more people could have participated.

Btw: Palin's material couldn't begin to compete with this, lol.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Palin Earthquake beats it hands down

Maybe if the delegates were Independent voters, what you posted would have been impressive, but I'm sorry, I wouldn't have used any of it, as I don't find it inspiring or helpful, but actually harmfull.

I guess it's that Palin has REPUBLICANS who understand REPUBLICANS?

I am profoundly sorry that I did not see the articles or understand their purpose to be able to help write and contribute to the effort.

I'm very dissappointed in myself for not stepping up and participating in the effort to reach out and make a case to National Delegates with what I know we are up against and what appeals to them.

Like many things that have been happening on DP, from P.A.U.L. fest to L4RP, to this effort, I am sorry that I can not give honest gushing reveiws and unconditional support.

The good news is only where I have been wrong, I have learned, and that will make me much more able in future elections.

I remain hoping that I am completely WRONG AS HELL, and that everyone who did participate efforts prevail in winning Ron Paul the nomination.

Here's the original thread.

I had to dig to find it and revisited the comments there. But, this is where you will get the info about how this all started.

Thank you Nonna

There were reasons the thread was deleted. Thank you for your help early on in this :-)

Sorry I missed the second thread

on this. I thought you were the one who asked for help, but I couldn't remember... old age is setting in. I know I didn't do much, but I did what I could to help at that time. I am very pleased with what you came up with and thank you with all my heart for following through with your idea!

Just wanted The Granger to see it from the beginning.

Edit: Wow! It is gone! I swear I just read through the comments a few minutes ago! I am I THAT far gone????

Thanks again Nonna

You did help and it is greatly appreciated :-)

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Interesting...

so why can't the RP campaign do the same?

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

Why can't grassroots?

The campaign isn't going to impress other campaign's delegates.. grassroots do, as delegates get the idea, they are representing people, not establishment, which campaigns are.

Ahhh...

So there *IS* need for grassroots!!!

LOL

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Not all grassroots are alike

I wish ours were as willing to take committee seats and become establishment for Ron Paul as Palin's are for her. Her grassroots are far better organized (she does not have a campaign) These guys KNOW what they want and are willing to make compromises to get it, knowing once they have it.. all compromises are off. Our grassroots are not that savvy. Too big a learning curve for them and most were grassroots for Ron Paul in hopes he would dump the GOP, not own it.

Bring on the brokered convention

Does Sarah have the plurality need to be nominated from the floor?
There was a movement to contact ALL of the national delegates for Ron Paul. However we got a HUGE block in getting the names in Ohio.
Probably because we here in Ohio already tried this in 2008...and...we now have a republican (DeWine) as attorney general, and John Husted as secretary of state.
Don't kid yourself. OUR grassroots would never go Plain. That is faux TEA party people that can't stand Romney. There are plenty of people who will never vote for Romney because they completely understand that Romney is pretty much exactly the same as Obama in all regards. A liberal flip-flopping liar that will do whatever the bankers and the military industrial complex tells him to. And any one of the other candidates that endorsed Mitt Romney are no better.
I feel sorry for the poor Santorum folks that 'thought' he was different. They were taken for a ride on one of the biggest con games in years right along with Rick, who...come on...had to know that he didn't even have a chance. It was all about distracting people from listening to the Ron Paul liberty message. Nothing more.

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

I don't know

I'm getting the feeling that as more voters (especially RP supporters who abandoned the GOP after the election) become Indy's (which have no foundation or rudder, they have no representation, no committees, no leaders, are easily marginalized, and a huge wild card that can be manipulated at the polls), Romney was something that much of the GOP didn't want, but accepted, (those loyalty oaths), but the GOP body of delegates actually wants choice and unity.

I don't know if Palin can get plurality, and I'm sure her grassroots (Republicans committed to her, and have probably joined these committees stealth, because mine siddenly had people show up who had more in common with me, yet were "flexible" that I took as the "Ron Paul" stealth, and now reading about Palin, I'm thinking, they are not Ron Paul Republicans, but stealth Palin, befriending me to get me to back them). Also, I believe once the nomination is set, those seats are going to fill up very quickly, and by the looks of the DP grassroots, it won't be them, as they appear to be backing GJ, Obama, and definately NOT GOP- nobody but Paul.

I can see Newt, Santorum delegates going for Palin, especially Republican women.

IMO our greatest weakness is our grassroots because they refuse committment, are demanding uncompromise, and many have already turned away from Ron Paul, HATE Rand Paul, and HATE the GOP. Let's face it, many didn't join the GOP and really hoped Ron Paul would go Indy or third party.

Those who joined the GOP, took a committee seat and became delegtes are the new kids on the GOP block, and are in a struggle to keep what we have gained, not just by neocons, but apparently by those who are not new kids on the block, such as the Palin grassroots who are now taking those seats.

I think we're going to have a brokered convention. I think the inflexibility of our grassroots will undermine Ron Paul, and I think the delegates will be under tremendous pressure to compromise.

All they need is for Tampa MSM to have a negative event that "reflects" on Ron Paul, staged, or not, and that embarrassment will weaken them, as the peer pressure inside the established RNC is far greater, knowing they can hit them at home, than pressure from grassroots who are rallying for GJ, especially if the embarrassment comes from that area on MSM and it's played everywhere inside the convention.

Ron Paul makes us proud, and it's very hard if not impossible to follow Ron Paul's political footsteps. The establishment plays hardball with the intention to out us, grassroots support is fickle at best because they reject those who are unable to do exactly as Ron Paul has done. They don't understand, they don't care to understand. They demand, yet have no establishment threat to back their threats.

You may very well be right.

I can't argue anything you've just written. I can only hope you are wrong and that by the grace of God, Ron Paul will pull this off.

“It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life.”
―Emmet Fox

Ironically, I too like being wrong

I seem to learn when I'm wrong, so I see being wrong as a gift.

That said, I want Ron Paul to get that GOP nomination and am praying, hoping that it's God's will.

I'm very amped this week.. I wish I could be in Tampa at the RNC and Sun Dome event. I'm not good as a spectator when it comes to sports.. gotta be in the game.

Reminds me of a sociology class I took years ago.. I had said something to the same effect about needing to be in the game, so the instructor says, "Well if you really want to see the game, you need to watch it on TV where you get close up shots and replays." So I said, that's not being in the game. Tv does not replace the energy, the experience, the smell, the contact, where close up or replay are not as important as that you are THERE." I dropped the class. I'm not dropping me seat. LOL

Nice post :-)

Except for one thing:

Being in Tampa, at whatever event it may be, *IS* being in the game.

Roles are not always specific nor do they always need to be defined. Though it only takes an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds, showing strength in numbers is every bit as important as delegates going to convention.

Keep plugging away Granger, there is hope for you yet :-)

See you all in Tampa.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Well I want to be inside the RNC

I agree with you that being in Tampa is being at the game, it's just that I would want to be at the RNC wearing a nice suit.

Granger, my friend, you are

in the game. I, for one, am rooting for you, Patriot.

Just wish you could have joined our other friend in Tampa. Is it too late for you to change your mind?

Thank YOU Nonna

I just received an email from my committee chair who is going to give us a report on the CA GOP convention from August 10TH (they out manuvered me into going as a delegate).

Not only am I hoping to get a Ron Paul Republican seated this meeting, as they will need my vote, but I plan on vetting those who I now suspect as being Palin plants.

We will have a guest, who is running for congress and is a Liberty candidate and his campaign is worse than Ron Paul's when it comes to action, and I want to grill him on that as I have done everything to help this guy.. and we have the prop 32 issue, I had the committee remove it from new business and put on the agenda.

I see they are planning to stuff the ballot with more Neocon issues, and I want to derail that, and on a local level, I have been thinking of starting a local movement to back a group of property owners who are battleing UN Agenda that is operating to remove them from the area for environmental reasons (our chair is a huge state parks supporter, and previously worked at the local paper, which is part of the problem as they always side with the establishment, so I want to hear what he has to say, as I intend to question him about his perspective before I file as a Non Government Organization)

This meeting had been changed to Saturday the 25TH (I believe just to keep me from going to Tampa/ ego, not paranoia), and it's packed, so that means I would have to leave from the meeting to the airport, 4 hours away, then the flights are 16 hrs, with layovers, whether it's in San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas or Pheonix.. best I could do is arriving (if flight is on time 1:45 PM, @ $749.00, and I have no hotel, no rental car, no Camp Liberty.. so.. I'm sorry and sad to say, I don't think it's in my cards.. but hey.. Maybe someone at the meeting is going in their private jet and has room for me? Let us hope).

i regret we did not do dvds for delegates

that was powerful 4 years ago

It was done.

See Denise B's post above.

And so another clown joins the circus....

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

watch out

Mitt does not have the support of ANY base. if the damn thing can get brokered we have a shot....We need some drama....watch out for JEB.

Jeb Bush

That is scarier than you know. Look at what we have had for over three decades. G.H.W. Bush 1980-1992, V.P. and President; Bill Clinton, 1992-2000, President; G.W. Bush, 2000-2008, President; Hillary Clinton, 2008-present, Secretary of State . Two families, and their friends, in control at the highest levels of government. This is known as an Oligarchy.

42 USC 1971 (b) Intimidation, threats, or coercion
No person, whether acting under color of law or otherwise, shall intimidate, threaten, coerce, or attempt to intimidate, threaten, or coerce any other person for the purpose of interfering with the right of such other person to vote or to vote as he may choose, or of causing such other person to vote for, or not to vote for, any candidate for the office of President, Vice President, presidential elector, Member of the Senate, or Member of the House of Representatives, Delegates or Commissioners from the Territories or possessions, at any general, special, or primary election held solely or in part for the purpose of selecting or electing any such candidate.

Jennifer Sheehan, Legal Council for the RNC, wrote a letter to Nancy Lord, Utah National Committee-Woman, asserting:

“The RNC does not recognize a state’s binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose, and the national convention allows delegates to vote for the individual of their choice, regardless of whether the person’s name is officially placed into nomination or not.”

Don't lose sight of the issues that are going to help us win and keep Romney out.

In CA

Each candidate picks his delegates,, Ron Paul picked his, Romney picked his..Newt Picked his, Romney won.. CA is winner take all. So Romney picked people who maxed out and made significant campaign contributions showing their loyalty..

Utah is NOT CA (maybe after we have some great earthquake it will be the west coast, but right now, that's not Utah. And yeah, national delegates are unbound, but like Ron paul Republicans/delegates.. they really want their guy, like we want Ron Paul.

What Palin is banking on is the majority don't want Romney.

Just found this...

...and I'm intrigued. I would like to see that flyer. Since I posted my theory the other day, I've learned new things that reinforce my position. Such as, there has been a group that has been advocating Palin supporters to become delegates for *anyone* to get to tampa. Granger, I didn't "know" anything, but I have a very good history of detecting patterns in the noise, and have predicted every federal race I've personally been able to vote in since 1992. I was afraid that I would break my streak with Rand (I live in Ky) but it remains intact. This theory is way more complicated than anything that I've put out thus far, and has many moving parts. But I don't think it works unless Ron Paul has been party to the conspiracy, and Carol Paul as well. If I'm right, and Sarah Palin walks out with the nomination, I'll be a legend in my own section of the Republican Party. Dealing with the many perspectives takes thick skin, but I wouldn't classify Palin as a neocon herself, although she certainly has some appeal for them as well. That's why I said she could be the 'unity' nominee, because all the old white men distinctly represent one faction or another, and don't have broad appeal. This certainly includes Romney & Ryan. The ideal 'unity' nominee has qualities & positions that can appeal to every flavor of Republican. I'm standing by my prediction as of now.

Yeah MoonShadow

Your post was very interesting, and yeah, I would say you have a gift in patterns. On some posts below I posted the EarthQuake Movement.. www.palinquakes.com

addresses... They got my contact off CA Sec of State Web page Ron Paul Delegates. Palin endorsed Rand, and they know we've been taking those committee seats.. so it would behoove Palin to go with Rand for the Indy vote, or maybe Grover Norquist?

But yeah.. your pattern gift is very impressive.. think the hurricane coming to Tampa might mess with it?

I can't see Norquist playing

I can't see Norquist playing a role at all. As for the hurricane, I can't say what kind of effect that would have. A real hurricane hitting during the actual convention would be a black swan event. Maybe the less committed Romney delegates will flee Tampa ahead of it? We can only hope.

I don't think that he plays a

I don't think that he plays a role in the convention because he's only known to political wonks like us, and not known nationally at all. Not because I don't think that he's a fine person.
