As most of you know, National Delegate to the RNC, Jim Uprichard of Reno Nevada, was involved in a nearly fatal motorcycle accident on September 3, 2012. The accident has left him with memory loss, a broken humerus in 4 places, scapula, L5 to sacrum and many facial fractures. The hospital discovered that Jim did not have insurance and the only insurance he did have with Geico denied his coverage, which resulted in an early release, well before he should have been, on September 12, 2012. The accident happened in Port Orange, near Daytona Beach, Florida, just days after he voted for Dr. Paul.

Here is a little history regarding Jim.
Jim was born in Spokane, Washington and graduated from Joel E. Farris High School. After that he enlisted in the military. Jim served in the Navy during Vietnam and his ship was the USS Agerholm. (http://www.worldnavalships.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10468 and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Agerholm_(DD-826)
Jim learned of Dr. Ron Paul during the 1988 campaign while doing a brief search of the presidential candidates. He learned that Ron Paul was the “only one who would honor his promises and restore the country”. Jim joined his county central committee during the 2007/2008 presidential run. He became a delegate for Dr. Paul at the 2008 state convention where he witnessed the lights being turned out as the delegates for Ron Paul were winning.
Jim has been a person who would be “the first one there in a crisis”, says one of his caregivers. Jim has been at many rallies, sign-making events, calling parties, parades, and canvassing with Super Brochures. Jim has met Dr. Paul on 7 different occasions and he has a photo of him using the phone next to Dr. Paul, which hangs in his office. Jim has been a financial supporter to the campaign for Dr. Paul, campaign for liberty, the dailypaul, supebrochures.com, and liberty Pac, among many others.
The following is a video, which Jim took, of Nevada National Delegate, Wayne Terhune, handing the nomination forms from 6 states to Kim Reynolds, the Lieutenant Governor of Iowa. Jim can be heard on the video saying, “Ron Paul.” And “not authorized, not approved”, among other things. Please watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1xexMF3gsQ
Jim is being censured by the Nevada Republican Party and he is not well enough to combat their behavior and defend his position.
Here is a video of Jim filming the handing of the nomination papers to the same Governor; he is in the teal colored shirt holding the camera: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXZ9kzIvokY
Jim has had an in home care nurse visit today and the services necessary for his recovery are quite expensive. Just the hospital bill alone is over $91,000. Please continue to pray for Jim and anything that you would like to donate would be greatly appreciate.
