Let the party begin … at least for THIS milestone.
The Official CERTIFIED LIST OF WRITE-IN CANDIDATES will be released on Friday (10/26).
WELL DONE, PEOPLE.
WE ARE THE POLITICAL GAME CHANGERS; LET’S GET OUT THE VOTES AND PROVE IT!!
*** UPDATE ***
NOW, IT’S OFFICIAL. Write-In votes for Ron Paul will be counted in California.
TODAY WE CELEBRATE HAVING OUR WRITE-IN VOTE COUNT FOR AN OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED PRESIDENTIAL WRITE-IN CANDIDATE.
In deference to you, sailingaway, here’s the title you’ve wanted to see. Until today I was celebrating the verification of the Electors.
TODAY, I exhale and say thanks to all those whose effort made the Ron Paul /Andrew Napolitano available to ALL of the California voters. We were kicked in the butt during the “closed” Primary. Let us NOW SEIZE this momentum and drive home the real meaning of “voting your conscience and principle.” There is a great many disenfranchised Republicans, disillusioned Democrats and frustrated Independents waiting to hear THEY HAVE A CHOICE in California.
Thank you, Michael Nystrom, for making this site available to all who seek perspective and resources on Liberty, Freedom and the Constitution as espoused by Dr. Ron Paul.
Thank you, sailingaway, for the title. Thank you, also for dropbox.com. It provided a simple means by which people could access my information. I didn’t know about it before your posts.
Thank you, Sue4theBillofrights. You helped me clarify and re-read my resources to be sure I was correct in my posting of California Write-In rules and codes.
A very special Thank you goes out to The Granger. Every group, organization or family NEEDS someone like you. Your comments serve to challenge the belief, conviction, resolve and correctness of anyone who dares to post. I chose to embrace that challenge and “git ‘er done” So with tongue-in-cheek I say, “There! I stood firm and WE GOT IT DONE.”
Finally, a great big THANK YOU to libertynet. I missed your comments on October 4, because I wasn’t ready for the truth. That truth being, “you really DID have a way that this could be done.” Go, figure! Simply put, it was pouring gasoline on an open flame. Man, was it HOT.
NOW TO THE BUSINESS AT HAND: LET’S HAVE SOME REAL FUN !!!
To anyone who dares to say a write-in vote for Ron Paul is a wasted vote, I challenge you with this.
Walk into ANY GATHERING of people ANY WHERE, gathered FOR ANY REASON and start saying the name Ron Paul. Don’t shout it. You can even whisper it.
You will immediately sense an emotional tension of excitement AND angst. It would not be difficult to start a conversion about anything, including closely held beliefs, after that.
Now try the same thing saying, “Gary Johnson,” “Jill Stein,” “Virgil Goode,” or “Rocky Anderson.”
This Write-in effort is NOT about Hero-worship. No candidate can sustain or continue something that is organic, dynamic and societal in nature. Dr. Paul is our Coach, Mentor, Cheerleader and Standard Bearer.
We as a country of individuals need to be reminded we are just that – individuals – first and foremost. Before we became members of any group we were individuals. For an individual to gain my support, in any encounter, I will look to the person’s personal beliefs; who were/are their advisers/teachers, and where does their money/financial support come from. In THIS election cycle Ron Paul was the only individual who passed muster.
To anyone who says it can’t be done in ten (10) is saying that to the wrong person and the wrong group of people. In (4) Days (96 Hours) the WORK was done; in (7) Days momentum was built up and in (10) Days we have a Write-In Candidate for President and Vice-President – CHOSEN BY US – Certified by the Office of the California Secretary of State.
We are NOT the Nation WE are California. Focus on that and WE WILL WIN. If what WE DO, politically, does not get Ron Paul’s name on a ballot, then we are wasting our political capital.
IT CAN BE DONE….BUT ONLY IF WE GET AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER AND GET IN FRONT OF PEOPLE. Only 10 out of the 55 Electors came from postings on the web. (18) Came from the personal efforts of a mother of three. Ericka Chiara used her computer TO INVITE people to a Declaration signing party NOT TO DISCUSS the differences between parties or candidates. She knew she did not have the luxury of TIME. Oh yeah and, driving through rain, sleet and snow to Sacramento, she also stopped along the way to pickup MORE Declarations and another passenger to hand-deliver their Declaration as well. Is that amazing? You bet it is. Could anyone have done it? Only those who believe so much that they are moved to act. If you believe in the Liberty movement and what you have heard/seen/ read from Ron Paul and Andrew Napolitano, then by example, infuse that belief in others.
At present, the focus of the Republican and Democratic campaigns is on maybe ten (10) states, because they believe the other states are “spoken for”. (i.e., California=Obama, Texas=Romney) So right now is the perfect time to approach people, explain why the Constitution is important and compare the positions of leaders beyond the media marketed products now available on political store shelves. ANYTHING we can get to the media has NO competition.
The next (4) Days (96 Hours) are the most critical. This is time when a TOTALLY focused effort MUST be made. This time span will be the foundation for the next (3) Days of building Momentum and the final (3) Days is when the change begins to occur. On the final day (November 6) that change will happen. It will be in the excitement each and every person will feel, knowing the write-in vote they cast for Ron Paul and Andrew Napolitano will be Free, Right and True to their own personal values and beliefs. They will wake up on November 7th and still feel that excitement.
We MUST hold ourselves personally responsible for the success of the California Write-in Ron Paul / Andrew Napolitano Vote. In my life, the framework for personal accountability was built for me by the words of my father:
“"If you have the knowledge and the wherewithal to affect change and are presented with the opportunity, you alone are responsible for that change to be made; no one else." - John D. Finnegan Jr.
