We Will Not Forget: Write in Ron Paul for Our Beaten and Arrested Delegates in the States Where it Will Count

States where the write votes will be counted: AL, IA, WI, PA, CA, VT, NH, DE, OR

One thing that irks me about all the Johnsonites now swarming this site who say: "Get over it! You lost! Now vote for Gary Johnson!" is it's not that simple. A cynical calculation was made that "Those Ron Paul votes are now all OURS! Let's go in and swamp them and browbeat them UNTIL THEY SUBMIT, JUST LIKE THEY HAD TO FOR THE GOP!"

It's not that simple now because of guys like Alex Helwig, who found out that playing by the rules and winning means nothing to some people. He was arrested during the fracas at the Louisiana GOP and came out of jail with broken fingers.

It's not that simple because of Henry Herford, Jr., an elderly handicapped gentleman and newly-elected Ron Paul chairman who was pushed to the floor by off-duty Shreveport police goons hired by the leadership. He reportedly suffered a dislocated hip.

In a Missouri parking lot where locked out Ron Paulers finally held their own convention, a SWAT team was called to break up the peaceful assembly.

Over and over we saw no bottom to the contempt for a democratic republic exhibited by the GOP leadership, the form of government bequeathed to us by the Founders.

When we go into the eight states where write-in votes are counted without a candidate's signed declaration of intent (meaning we don't have to bother Dr. Paul, we can do it all ourselves,) we aren't just choosing to vote for the man who best and most CONSISTENTLY articulates our message.

WE HAVE OUR HEROES TO REMEMBER. Those who bravely waded into the uncharted waters of the GOP snakepit to contend with whatever they found.

Even after the convention the State was not done with Ron Paul, as 8 TSA agents descended on his party as they were boarding a private plane out of Tampa.

Lew Rockwell reports:

"After a long examination of the pilots and their credentials, the agents said they had to check the plane for explosives. One of the pilots noted that the plane, full of gas, was already a bomb. Then Carol Paul, who has a heart pacemaker, refused to be screened, and an aide started taking video of the whole rotten proceeding. At that point, the TSA backed down and let them through."

LOL nevermind Dr. Paul. It's Mrs. Paul who restored order with those boys.

This rich legacy of skulduggery and brutality provides enormous material for our write-in campaign for the states where it will count: AL, IA, WI, PA, CA, VT, NH, DE.

It makes me cry every time I watch the videos of what some of us went through. Just for exercising our right to participate in the process. I also feel like I AM THE ONE BEING ATTACKED.

You guys go off spend your time on this whole Johnson debate if you want. I will spend every last bit of time and energy I have until election day working on making the Ron Paul write-in vote get heard around the world, in the states it will count.

I for one, will never forget.

Anything anyone can do to send to meetups or facebook this would be greatly appreciated.


You are woefully incorrect

Many of those states will count write-ins, BUT, only if the campaign pays the extra money. Get a confirmation from the Paul campaign this has been done first. Otherwise, when the tabulation machines run their reports all write-ins (whether by filling in the oval or computer entry) will be tallied under "other".

Personally, I want my vote to be attached to a name. But, I very much understand your sentiment.

RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION: The Write-In Campaign

RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION: The Write-In Campaign


Wisdom Strategies

I was arrested

I was arrested, but not for Ron Paul. I was arrested for doing everything I could to have a fair process. Those that were anti-Ron Paul did everything they could to rig the process. I would not stop my attempt to have a fair process and was charged with a crime for doing so. I was forced to go to trial to defend myself. I won.

Those in my county worked hard and in the end all of the delegates from my county were Ron Paul supporters.

I supported Ron Paul because I felt, and still do feel, that the other candidates have very serious flaws and will not make our country any better. I have no hope that liberty will prevail in the near future. The only question now is whether we will have another chance to put someone in the White House who understands liberty in four years of eight.

For all that I have done, and all that I believe, I WILL write in Ron Paul. I will have voted for who I want to be President and I will sleep very well that night. For me, a vote for anyone else is to ignore my convictions. If I was to vote for someone else, then I might as well start sitting on the sidelines and waiting until election day to pick from the choices made for me.

If I was right to support a man who I truly believe in, and go through everything I went through at the time, then I see no reason to stop supporting him now. I cannot vote for someone or something I do not believe in.

I don't want to hear all of the crap about whether my vote will be counted. In Missouri if the voter desires to vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter may cross out a name which appears on the ballot for the office and write the name of the person for whom the voter wishes to vote above or below the crossed-out name and mark in the target area specified by the ballot
instructions next to the crossed-out name. If a write-in line appears on the ballot, the voter may write the name of the person for whom the voter wishes to vote on the line and mark the target area specified by the ballot instructions next to the name. (Section 115.439.1 (2) RSMo.)

A vote for anyone but Ron Paul will be a vote I will regret for the rest of my life. I have enough regrets already. I do not need to add another one.

thank you for your fight. We will not forget.


Release the Sandy Hook video.

The "draft Ron Paul" Drive Is Still Alive


We are now getting close to the target number of 20,000 e-signatures with the on line petition, and the Libertarian party IS now willing to consider the option of having congressman Dr. Ron Paul fill the position as their VP running mate for governor Gary Johnson on the Libertarian ticket.
The conference calls have been productive even with the not so well publicized re-schedule of the Monday evening call to Tuesday evening because of a last minute scheduling for a governor Gary Johnson live Q&A on line town hall conference so that Gary could field questions about his positions on particular issues.

This is the pertinent information you can use to contact Dr. Ron Paul with your request that he consider this important effort to continue spreading the message of liberty by running with governor Gary Johnson, and to satisfy this humble request being made by some of his loyal Ron Paul delegates that served him well by becoming delegates for his 2012 campaign. We can do this. And we should do this.


You can do several things to help Ron see our support.

Go HERE to send Dr. Ron Paul an email: https://forms.house.gov/paul/webforms/issue_subscribe.html

Then call one of these numbers to make your request
(979) 285-0231 or (361) 576-1231

But be sure to sign the petition please

We have come so far and gained so much.
Why stop now?



Steve, Ron Paul doesn't want VP, Johnson should step down

a notch for the leader of the Liberty Movement to take his place at the head of our legions, in solidarity after witnessing the most thoroughly disgusting plethora of dirty tricks used against him in campaign history. He should say: "I wouldn't ordinarily do this, but RIGHT IS RIGHT."

The dirty tricks and violence should be the spark that moves Gary. People got their fingers broken. We were there where the fighting was the bloodiest. The Libertarians weren't.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

It is possible that none of the votes are counted

so I say vote for who you would want for the job. My vote will be for Ron Paul whether the neocon nazis count the damn vote or not! They can go to HELL!!!

nada in GA

gotta do g j

Having a second look at Oregon. It seems that they total

the write-ins but do not tally them for the individual candidates. Looks like a good place for a Ron Paul write in campaign. If suddenly 20% of the votes in some counties are write-ins, it will be pretty obvious who it is.

No declaration from candidate needed.


Release the Sandy Hook video.

If your vote will be counted

then I am all for a write in Ron Paul campaign. In Texas, a write in vote won't be, so I'll vote GJ.

Free and Brave
or Cradle to Grave
You can't have both

No One But Paul:

Let's show the world our numbers. Write in his name regardless, take a cell phone photo of your ballot, and upload or scan it to:

www.WriteInRon2012.com: confirm it with your affidavit. Let's have some fun with this and show the world our power.

This is a great idea, we can even take a photo of an

electronic screen you are stuck with those disgusting Diebold machines (I think they changed the name but they are still Diebold.)

Release the Sandy Hook video.

That video.....

That should be it's own thread! Like I keep asking, when will the LP go back to running libertarians as their candidates?
(BTW Governor Johnson, ever hear the term 'sustainable development'? Sadly, I have a feeling you did.)
Ron Paul or no one at all.


Wow thanks for the video.

GB, can you assist here?

This delegate really, really needs some support. Can you facebook and send to meetups? Would really appreciate any assistance.

Give it a bump. (?)


New Obama vs. Romney poll numbers. This morning

I put on FoxNews to watch memorial coverage, but they were talking about new poll numbers that showed Obama having gained support and Romney having lost support, with a 6-pt. spread. They were so puzzled, theorizing on what could possibly have caused this gap. Hmm. Couldn't be that disenfranchised Ron Paul delegates and other supporters around the country remember what occurred on the part of the RNC and/or Romney campaign during the primaries, the state conventions, and at the national convention less than TWO WEEKS ago, could it? And with disillusionment on the part of some additional tea party activists as of the convention, as well?

Write in Campaign for NYS

I will take the responsibility to arrange the write in for Ron Paul in New York State.

If anyone else has done this, let me know, so we can team up.

New York state election laws have been read, the Board of Elections has been referred to, and we now have the ball rolling.

For New York State someone, a delegate perhaps,

needs to contact Ron Paul since his signature is needed. The deadline is in October 16. We should say to Dr. Paul we want to show that the jailings and broken bones did not break our spirit. New York would be key because it has 31 electoral votes, between it an CA a good chunk of the electors in the nation. My my my won't TPTB be angry. This throws everything off if the Paul write-in cannot be predicted.

From NY sec of state below.

NY: 31 Electors


Write-In Candidates

To run as a write-in candidate for president, you are required to file a certificate of candidacy with the State Board of Elections no later than the third Tuesday prior to the general election [Oct. 16.] The certificate must be signed by the presidential candidate and must contain the following information:

Name and address of presidential candidate
Name and address of any vice-presidential candidate, and a signed certificate of acceptance from such candidate
Name and address of at least one elector, with an acceptance certificate and pledge of support signed by each such candidate for elector.

See Election Law §6-153 (pdf 3,303KB) for further information.

Sue, we are on top of this.

Dr. Paul will receive the proper paperwork to sign.

We need to communicate by phone. My email is down. PM Carrie and exchange numbers. She will be the main person, I will be helping her out.


Actually 29 electors. The other two are "our" U.S. Senators, Democrats Gillibrand and Schumer.

I was a NY delegate on the slate for Ron Paul. Obviously, we were shutout though. I fought to get into one of the 34 At-Large delegate spots.

Tony I cannot seem to send a PM, have Carrie email

me at neimpeach at gmail dot com

and we can exchange numbers.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Will do.

She just started a new job today and has to get up pretty early now. I will call her tomorrow and tell her to visit this thread and hook up with you.

Have a good night.


Can you look into this??

Sore Loser Laws Don’t Generally Apply to Presidential Candidates

great article, explains why sore loser laws don't apply to

presidential candidates. Cliffs: In presidential elections you are actually voting for electors, not the candidate. The electors never ran or "lost" before. Unforeseen good consequence of elector system.

from article:

"However, the opinion does not discuss the fact that the true candidates in November are running for presidential elector, not president. A presidential candidate’s name is not listed on the November ballot in his or her role as a candidate. Instead, the name is an identifier for specific slates of candidates for presidential elector."

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Good article.


Do you REALLY want to remember the heros?

Seriously?!!! Because if you are SERIOUS, and I mean SERIOUS about this, then I have a suggestion for you.

Many, if not all of those delegates are seated on central committees. Those central committees vetted those delegates. Do you understand? Part of the process of being a delegate is committee approval. Delegates represent committee seats. OK?

So if you really want to honor them (or protest what happened) what you should do is find out when your next central committee meeting is. It's not heard to find out. The meetings are public. Type in your county's name, Republican Central Committee and you should get their web page that has the next meeting listed.

Go to the meeting. Introduce yourself and ask permission to be placed on the agenda for the next meeting, or if they can work you into the meeting to say something about the RNC. Bring a gidt of flowers for the delegates. The committee will listen. It will go into the minutes. If ALL our county central committees had Ron Paul Republicans going to honor delegates and filing a protest, that would get resolutions written to STOP what happened in Tampa.

Are there various name of "central committees" ?

I can't seem to find any "central committee" where we live. Is there another search term or two?

I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war. Ps 120:7
Better to be divided by truth than united in error.
"I am the door." -Jesus Christ


Type in the name of your county and republican party. Your clunty clerk will have the name also.

Thank you for checking it out. That's all I ask is you see for yourself, you might just find it's not as bad as you thought, and a lot of fun.
