Good news from TampaSubmitted by spacehabitats on Fri, 08/31/2012 - 13:57
One of the nicest things about the RNC was meeting all of the other Ron Paul supporters from all over the country and getting to know the activists from my own state.
When I compare the wrinkled, potbellied, braindead "leaders" of the mainstream GOP to the young, smart leaders of OUR movement I am really encouraged. (And yes, I realize that I am also wrinkled and potbellied. But at least I am not a zombie.)
Its funny sometimes how things work out well even when they have done something bad to you. For example, because the RNC decided to not send a bus for the Iowa delegation the first day (no, I did not say the bus was late, I said they literally did not even dispatch a bus to our hotel), I decided to drive my car to the convention. Because the security perimeter is so huge, it takes almost 30 minutes to walk in. On the way I ran into some RP Alaska delegates and had a chance to talk about their situation. The next day I ran into them again and met their new state chairman. He was excited to get in touch with our chairman A. J. Spiker to get some pointers. I passed his card on to A.J. the next day at breakfast.
Today on the way home I ran into another delegate from Alaska who was NOT a Ron Paul supporter. He wanted to ask us to support Romney. I told him that I personally would vote for Mitt only because I am the country chair, but that I would NOT be delivering the 50 or 100 (or more) votes that I could through campaigning for him because of the rules he crammed through at the RNC. He stuttered a little and then said that it was the RNC and not Mitt who did that. I laughed and said that since it was Mitt's hand picked hatchet man Sununu who had chaired and rammed the rules through the committee, I was going to continue to hold Romney personally responsible for this travesty. "Why should I work my butt off for a candidate who has told me that he doesn't ever want my kind at the RNC again?" That shut him up. Maybe he won't be as anxious to cross our friends in Alaska when he gets home.
The Lord works in mysterious ways.
So as I am sitting at the gate waiting for my flight in Tampa guess who shows up to sit next to us? That's right the same couple from Alaska that I met walking to the RNC!
I finally decided that God was trying to tell me something.
We exchanged contact information.
Its a small world.
