Stranded delegate in Louisiana

Hello guys.

I just Western Unioned him some funds, but he needs a tire for his vehicle. He is in Shreveport and he has a donut on it, but may not last to get him home to New Mexico.

Thank you.

Call him please at 505-453-9034.


He is the delegate that was willing to drive back to be with Jim Uprichard, who was in the motorcycle accident in Daytona Beach, but we got that taken care of with his cousin arriving.


Patrick is doing better now, he is in Denton almost home to New Mexico. He had problems with a battery, but thank you to all of you who came to his aid. He has been all over the ocuntry helping in areas of Iowa, Oklahoma, Nebraska, etc... Thanks you guys for helping out this patriot. He should be home tomorrow. I have been keeping an eye out to make sure he makes it back, so far it is all good.

Update from family regarding Jim Upricard, thank you Patrick

I apologize for not posting Jim's address as quickly as I promised.

PO Box 20424, Reno, NV 89515

Cards and notes will provide another level of support for him in the days to come.

Jim is doing lots of sleeping. Friends are staying with him to make sure his medications are dispensed and the pain in his shoulder/arm is managed. Because of them what little he eats is nourishing. He is also receiving massages that appear to be helping with his bruises.

Jim is still very frustrated by the brain injury. He knows something is not right. He says some bizarre things at times but is quite lucid at other times. He has actually attempted to look at some of his Eniva business paperwork and inventory. Trying to process it is a challenge but he is trying.

Each day we are encouraged. Your support is invaluable. Thank you.

I wanted to give this a bump

unfortunately my funds are running tight right now. I just dropped a twenty bomb on a liberty candidate yesterday, and have been helping out one of my friends and fellow brother in Christ buy food and gas and things lately, so I cannot extend my hand right this second, but wanted to bump so others that can will see this post. God bless and safe travels!!!!

I just got off the phone with Patrick. We spoke for close to an hour.

For those questioning who he is, I can say this: he is without doubt one of us. And he's kind, humble and a true patriot that has worked very hard and made great sacrifices for the Liberty Movement.

Despite obstacles getting home, he never complained once. In fact, he's more concerned about Jim Uprichard, another great patriot that I met on the convention floor.

I understand the need to vet and be cautious, but both these men deserve our support.

I am Patrick Marron

the Delegate in question. I have recieved 280 in gas money and 120 for a new tire as of this morning. I deeply thank all of you who have helped me to this point. I did receive funds to originally get me to Tampa and back but on the way back I was having chest pains so I went to the VA hospital in Biloxi and stayed in 3 hotels because my thinking was Id rather be around people should I need an ambulance. It could simply be panic attacks I suffer from but on this the jury is still out. I am not sure how much gas money will get me to Albuquerque and I am currently in Hallsville TX approximately 900 miles away I think. I truly appreciate the help I have recieved and if anyone wishes to still help me it is appreciated. If I recieve funding that exceeds my needs I can return it or donate it to Jim Uprichard the Delegate from NV who is currently in hospital after a terrible motorcycle accident. He is in a very serious condition and your prayers and help are needed more than I need it . That said I must come clean. Those who were casting aspersions on my character were 100% correct I am a govt agent working for the fed. In fact I am driving with Ben Bernake, I keep him in the boot of the car when I was in Tampa so no one would find out! The romney campaign knew all that stood between the Liberty movement and victory was 280 in gas money and a new firestone tire! Now that I have that my dark lords evil plan is complete! We shall ride to key west laughing at all of you the whole way and drinking fresh goats blood! The goat is in the boot as well! You should all thank those people who warn about the likes of me. I know they come off as delusional , paranoid halfwits but really they are correct! I have been traveling the country ostensibly to help Dr Paul canvassing, calling becoming a National Delegate ..etc. but in reality I have been sabatoging the campaign in various and sundry ways! For instance every Ron PAul office I went to I stole as many paper clips as I possibly could!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH (evil laugh)plus I have prevented donantions to the campaign by making Ron PAul activists buy me beer where ever I go! Be forewarned because the depths to which I will go knows no bounds !!!

ditto, except my name is not Patrick or Steve or Neverquit

thanks Pat, after the days I have had these past 3 weeks, I needed a good laugh more than ever.

Thank you for all your traveling and helping out with the Liberty movement, thank you for your service in the military as well. AND I really appreciate all your offers to turn around and go see Jim and pick up Dick from the airport, eventhough you did not ever meet because Jim arrived later on his bike. Thank God we found another patriot willing to help that was still in Florida.

You guys are all awesome and I am so thankful to see such kind, compassionate and caring people. The gal who did not know Jim and visited him in the hopital, you are incredible. I do not know you, but I think we will be friends for a long time. Thank you sooooooo much.

Did you see the photo of Jim at Whiskey River in FL. Man that smile. You could have the worst day ever and he would be smiling and it is infectious.


Patrick, should have his new tire in the morning, I have invited him to lunch when he gets further west in Texas. I have spoken to him a few times today.

I prefer a dangerous freedom over a peaceful slavery. Thomas Jefferson

Thank you.

I just wanted to say that.

Thanks to ALL of you helping

Thanks to ALL of you helping this delegate. We all have our share of difficulties in life so let's try to be a little more restrained in communication until sufficient FACTS are available for judgment.

A_G1RL is right...

The person stranded is Patrick J. Marron. He is one of the original organizers of New Mexicans for Ron Paul. He has phone banked, campaigned in IA, NH, NM, and WA--as well as being a national delegate and a Marine: he is a true PATRIOT.
He does need some funds (which I am financially unable to help him with) to get back home, due to his panic attacks/heart problems creating multiple needs for motel stays. Unfortunately the negative posts on this thread have probably prevented some people from helping out: I urge you to PLEASE help him if you can!

I live 35 miles from Shreveport and have offered to put him up for the night. I have spoken to him at length a couple of times today. He would greatly appreciate your help!

Electable Ron Paul is my hero.

Patrick Marin is one of the most sincere darling people you

will ever meet. He is a relentless freedom fighter. He is interviewed and will be in the Rigged America documentary. Don't have a credit card, but if someone could help him, it would really be a great deed.

What a shame that our delegates went into the fire for us, spending in many cases their last dimes. It seemed that no one but the grassroots gave them any support.

We've got to stick together. We're all we've got.

That is not correct on two counts

First, The campaign did help delegates financially, here is one post with information: http://www.dailypaul.com/249594/financial-assistance-from-ro...

Second, the campaign has not ended, but continues as it has been working since they reached plurality, where to the outside, and I'm sorry it offends people, but grassroots are people who chose their own path, which was to remain outside the campaign because the campaign asked us to join the GOP, take committee seats and become delegates. IF you did that, the campaign never left you, if you didn't do that, the motto is, "Do what you want". The campaign represents what Ron Paul wants. Did you do what Ron Paul wanted? Here is a link to a email that summed it up:


I was never involved in the Steve Parent ordeal and I'm not involving myself now. I am not posting this to suggest anyone should not help someone who needs help, delegate or not. If someone needs help and you happen to be in a position to help, it would be nice to help.

As for the scamming, I don't blame anyone here for being cautious, as I have seen many scams come and go hurting good people who thought they were helping, supporting, and connecting.

We don't have a good "vetting system" besides the "You're a troll", which even Nystrom has been called a troll.

Peace be with all.

Thanks Granger

The expression:
"Fools rush in...where Angels fear to tread"
.....Seems appropriate here.

I also know that you would have loved to get to Tampa, but exercised fiscal responsibility.
That's something Ron Paul tried to teach us all....

COMMON SENSE...not so common these days.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

That is not the reason Danton

I don't know Tampa and I didn't know anyone personally that was going. The last thing I wanted to do was go to Tampa, drive around like a Virginia Delegate's RNC bus driver, being lost, or spend my time in a rental car by myself, "searching for the Holy Grail", driving long distances to places I had no idea where they were. I'm a light weight drinker, but I love people, so at my second drink, I'm the life of the party and feeling so good, driving is not exactly the best thing, and if I was arrested, or something did happen to me, I do not have an east coast network to bail me out.

I tried to get a female room mate and that didn't work. I LOVE men, so having a male room mate isn't wise either.

As the event came closer, I really wanted to be a guest at the RNC.. so then I thought, I would go and be bummed if I was not of the floor screaming RON PAUL or Booooooooooooooooo or whatever. All the more reason to have a third drink and act like an Iowa delegates RNC bus driver.

I am very independent, but I have also made mistakes being so independent, that has gotten me into trouble that I do not want to repeat those mistakes.

Also, I live a long way from an airport that has flights to Tampa, my central committee re-scheduled our meeting where another Ron Paul Republican was being seated, needed my vote, and I wouldn't miss that, so that put my arrival when Ron Paul's event was already happening, IF there were no delays (the flight had a delay in Pheonix).

It just wasn't meant to be for me, and no one is sorrier than myself.

I would have LOVED meeting you and Ron Paul's delegates and telling them THANK YOU personally.

I dont think this is Steve

I dont know either this poster nor the guy with a blown tire but I did some searching around and I personally dont think that the phone number given goes to steve parent. It goes to a delegate from New Mexico named Patrick and on his facebook he did say he got a blow out tire and is in Shreveport LA. I have not seen on DP nor his facebook of he himself asking for funds for this and seems to be that this user is trying to help him out. The one time Patrick did ask for donations was to get to Nebraska to video cover the conventions which seems normal to me.

Just my two cents.

No, I don't think he is scamming anyone, he met with NV

delegates and was trying to strategies. People did help him get to the RNC, but on his way back he was not feeling well, thought he might be having some sort of anxiety attack and used some of the funds to get a room for two nights. He ran out of money.

Hasn't anyone ever heard of being down on your luck?

AND, yes I am the same person helping out Jim as much as I can. His family has posted this


Did some digging and the number leads to

like a delegate from New Mexico.



His facebook name is not his real name. He is actually on the list from what I can see.

SO let me guess.. Someone emailed and told you his

"real name" I'm not seeing Jim Uprichard anywhere.

I KNOW YOUR JESSE BENTON! You are the root of all that is evil rp4pres! Why else would you be so divisive for no reason! I have watched you for a long time and I saw your website name was the same as Jesse Benton's email!I have all the proof needed to show the world who you really are! I am releasing this evidence on my new website assholeswhoneedattention.com. I have video of you taking your payoff money! I used to think you were just a 40 year old virgin who lived in his mothers basement and trolled the DP in order to keep his mind off his midget porn addiction. But now I see the TRUTH! Stop your shenanigans lest we call your mother JESSE!

Hoping I'll come in and blast you for being "Dr" Steve Parent?

Just trying to get some quick cash Steve or trying to garner a little credibility again so you can keep scamming for a little while longer?

So you're not Steve Parent?

I am not Steve Parent. I have never met or talked to him, but I

think soem people I know may have. This guy with the donut on his car is Pat, not steve. I do not like to post names on the internet, that is just my personal thing. BUT, I got his permission to do so. I do not like facebook or any of those "social media" sites.

So the fact that Neverquit claimed ownership of delegatetraining

.com and hermancainforums.com which both lead to steve means nothing lol..

I know it's you, you piece of shit. Pretend all you want to.. Plenty of people know who you really are and I'm not letting you set up scams to bilk RP people out of money.

I think someone should send your info to authorities. My bet is, they're looking for you.

Stop your nonsense!!!

I know 4Constitution personally, and Steve Parent has nothing to do with either one of us. Who is this person anyway? Never heard of the guy until I read your moronic posts. 4Constitution worked harder for the Ron Paul campaign than just about anybody I have come in contact with. The goal here is simply to help other delegates(Hell, not just delegates, but people.)that have come across bad times after they made a HUGE sacfifice to go down to the convention. PERIOD.

Call your representatives and ask them to get on board with the Audit of the Federal Reserve.
