The Granger did Sacramento last year 2013

EDIT: 02 March 2014. This is an old thread. Granger been there done that. Convention is in San Francisco and I am not going, nor will I say anything until after the convention mid-March.

I'm glad I did the convention. I'm glad for the position of treasurer because it's a political eye opener from a BUSINESS perspective, that many candidates don't completely understand, but those who KNOW how the party operates.. really operates..

CENSURE PREIBUS!! Now let this thread take it's rightful place in history. Thank you.

I'm very moved and appreciative to those who offered me support for my first CA GOP convention, on the fundraising thread, Send The Granger to Sacramento, less than 24 hours ago, the goal was reached and I'm very humbled and grateful.

Here's a breakdown of donations received in denominations:

Donations received by denominations:

$100.00 donation 1 supporter

$50.00 "" 1
$40.00 "" 1
$30.00 "" 2
$25.00 "" 5
$20.00 "" 6
$15.00 "" 2
$02.00 "" 1

Totals $584.70 20

THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT! I go to the convention in 10 days, so let's discuss issues, especially about CA this before I go. Mental Health and Guns are a big double whammy to fight.

I will be emailing those who contributed donations an email of thanks.

AGAIN THANK YOU, I am very proud to be taking the Daily Paul community with me into the CA GOP Spring Convention!! I will be reporting from the convention and make a report when I return home. I leave for the convention 28 February and Return March 4th.

I gave a link to DP to the chair. Wrote and told my committee what we achieved here, and haven't heard a peep. THANK YOU for the opportunity to fundraise.

I didn't know what to expect, and so far, it feels good to be supported, like I'm not alone, even if I'm an individual. It's a day I'll always remember.

Congrats for having all the marbles in order, Granger!

(You have a seriously obsessed stalker after you, down-voting every single gracious thank-you note you wrote to well-wishers. Well, I guess it proves how magnetic & impossible to ignore you are ;-)

I wonder if MichaelN & the mods can identify the stalker and tell him/her to desist.

I know I vote her down at any opportunity...

Not in 2007, 2008, & 2009...but then...some small child in a red dress put up a kook-aide and matzo stand right outside of her house...and you know she does love kook-aide and matzo.

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

You can tell them to desist

You can just as easily be the policeman.

Is a negative vote a federal crime? Should I inuit their motives and ban them as well?

Clearly the person is jealous, which means this soul is in pain. Perhaps we should pray for this soul instead?

Here's what I like about the Granger. She is a tough cookie, and she can take it. The Granger is a mountain. Immovable. A minus one vote from some crazee, or hurt, jealous person doesn't bother her one bit. But if it does, she knows this is the price of freedom: Sometimes you meet people who aren't the way you want them to be.

And then what?

That is what life is all about: "And then what?"


Just got business cards ordered with www.randwatch.com on the back. so I have something to pass out at convention.

Would be nice to have a list of up and comming Ron Paul repibliCANs, besides Justin Amash to share.

This vid is for my stalker: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plWnm7UpsXk

Education is the other issue

For about a decade, Ca had the highest quality educational content standards in the nation. I was part of the review committee for math textbooks in the 2001 adoption. The effort at the time was completely without regard to politics. Rep Steve Baldwin (R) led the effort, while the standards were put in place by a democratic governor. Arnold was not a friend of the standards and put political cronies on the state board instead of people who knew what the battle was about. Governor Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown is a complete disaster and has replaced the standards with the "common core" standards from the feds. This is why there was a thread on this website lately about algebra.

This is a pretty good reference website outlining the "math wars" that led to the state standards:


The nationalized standards are displacing content standards across the nation. They are very very weak compared to what was in place in a few states.

The math wars had shifted to New York:

Now it seems Ca may be ripe for a renewed battle.

It's a good issue for Repubs now since the Dems have gone down the dark road. A main issue is simply getting the right people in place on the state board.

I'm very familiar with this history.

How about attending your local central committee meeting?

From reading your post, it seems off hand, you would make a valuable member based on your experience and education.



Why the fuck is anyone

Why the fuck is anyone bothering with the GOP? There numbers are falling faster then light. Wrong venue bro.


"we" don't believe the elctions are fixed in spite of all evidence to the contrary. State worship.

Ask Ron Paul

He's the one who helped many of us lose our apathy and get IN the game to win. We are winning and don't let the blows from this good fight have you thinking otherwise. It was never intended to be a cake walk.

Congratulations ((((((((Granger)))))))))))

Good luck at the convention. Looking forward to reading your report!

THANK YOU (((((((Missy)))))))))

Have you ever considered being a campaign manager? I would have never asked if not for your inspration. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. This means so much to me.

I will be mailing THANK YOU CARDS for those , like you, who contributed to my fundraising campaign, and will take you with me in my heart, to continued to be inspired, and fired up, about the convention!

THANK YOU (((((((((Missy))))))))))))

Well all right!


Norfolk, VA

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

((((((((((((Thank YOU sharkhearted))))))))))

It really is, "Well, all right!" I'm still on cloud nine. THANK YOU for your generous support!!!

I can't imagine

You have very many of our actual email addresses :)


I have 20 contributors on PalPal
The gross was $584.70
The net $560.00 after PayPal fees.

I tried to email from the web page and it is coded so that I can not "lift" the email address. Which I think is good for security reasons. So I made a list and will be sending Thank you cards, like Michael did, and maybe why Michael sent us cards thanking him for our contributions to Daily PAul?

I tried to email you ((((((((tsv0728))))))) That's how I know it's not working, and will send cards becaue I do have addresses.

spending in the name of prisons and education

is out of control. Sadly much of the money does not go to actual education but to overpaid cronys. The state could save a ton if they just would stop jailing drug offenders and focus on violence. Fix the roads!! Love the scenery, weather, and mindset of Cali..

Go Grainger Go!!

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

Good luck Granger. hope you

Good luck Granger. hope you can bring some light to others.


I plan to work to enlighten others in the CA GOP, and looking forward to watching some light come on, and sharing with with you and DP! THANK YOU for the good luck!!!

I Just up voted you Granger, removing those down votes into

positive votes now. Thank you for all you do for liberty and helping to turn our country around. We need more people like you. Have fun in Sacramento Granger! ( : Adele


Give em hell sir!

Video video video!!!!

I'll bring my camera ((((Donven)))))

Thank you


Look him right in the eye.... ;)
Glad you got the funds, wish I could have contributed but you caught us at a pretty bad time.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Me too (((((fishy))))!

It sure makes the burdon of convention much lighter, because I don't feel like, WTF am I doing here, spending all my money on this BS?" It makes me feel that I actually have a purpose beyond myself, but to seize an opportunity I worked to be eligable.. I really do plan to look Karl in the eyes and tell him, "The people are catching on, Karl." It just cracks me, up, gives me a big smile.. perfect for convention. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkENeuzVtUM

Thought I'd share


A friend and I at the RNC. At barely over 5 feet tall, I relish every chance to say this: I am the tall one. Be sure to read the poster behind us.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

(((((fishy)))))) :D

Awesome.. you both look beautiful! Great poster!!

Oh, and one more thing.

Oh, and one more thing.

Tell your CA establishment GOP friends that the rest of us out here are waiting for the CA GOP to grow a pair (if you'll excuse the gender specific reference to courage) and stand up to DC, and that until the GOP in our most populous state gets it's act together we have NO chance of rolling back the federal Leviathan.
