Ron Paul Endorsed By Alabama Republican Assembly

The Alabama Republican Assembly endorsed Ron Paul at their state convention today in Birmingham.

The endorsement required a 2/3rd majority of registered delegates. Ron Paul received the 2/3rd on the first ballot. Mike Huckabee came in second. Convention chair Elaine Little noted that, with the crowded field, it was unusual that an endorsement would be won on the first ballot.

The group also held a straw poll that was open to the public. The winner of the straw poll was Ron Paul, with 81%.

“Ron Paul’s grassroots support is second to none among all other Republican campaigns this cycle,” stated attorney Tom Davis, Vice President of the ALRA and delegate to the endorsing convention. “The results of our straw poll parallel the results in most straw polls throughout the country. Ron Paul has clearly excited many new people and energized them to get involved in the political process. The Republican Party should be grateful for all the ‘new blood’ coming in as a result of Congressman Paul’s message of freedom and returning to the Constitution.”

The Alabama Republican Assembly is a grass-roots volunteer organization chartered by the National Federation of Republican Assemblies. Ronald Reagan referred to the NFRA as “the conscience if the Republican Party.”

For those of you who don't know....

The ALRA is the republican wing of the republican party.

Yes they are. They are the

Yes they are. They are the conservative wing of the republican party...and publicly acknowledge Ron Paul as the real republican conservative with their endorsement. Kudos to ALRA.

Margaret Mead sez about Dr Paul:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Our first and most pressing problem is how to do away with warfare as a method of solving conflicts between national groups within a society who have different views about how the society is to run.

I was brought up to believe that the only thing worth doing was to add to the sum of accurate information in the world.

As a life long Pa. resident

Alabama is starting to look like a good alternative. An island of sanity if you will.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Times Herald Record / Orange County New York

Todays Times Herald Record Sunday edition in Orange County New York had a nice voters primer pull out on page 8.The Democrats were listed in Blue and the Republicans in Red. The positions were listed down the side of the page and all you had to do was match the picture of the candidate with a position such as Immigration etc.. like a grid.The only trouble was Ron Paul was delibertly not listed as a candidate. RUDY was there, even Edwards but not Paul. Thousands of voters will now think he is out of the race.We want all PAUL SUPPORTERS to email WWW.RECORDONLINE.COM. to protest this omission, and if you have a subscription cancel it.

Hey, what up dude? You left my main man Ron Paul out of your news coverage of the candidates. Bummer!

Actually, I'm a 61 year old business owner. I normally don't talk that way. I admit I've been watching to much TV lately.

Seriously, you err by not giving Ron Paul equal coverage with the other candidates. He has beaten Rudy G. in 4 out of 5 states that have voted or caucused to date. You owe it to your readers, and your country.

Please reconsider.

Dr. Paul is doing well for

Dr. Paul is doing well for himself. He is steadliy beating rudie julie annie in primaries, and has plenty of money.

with the republican primary in turmoil I wouldn't be surprised if deals are made at the convention --which should help Ron Paul. it would make him even more relevant.

rudie julie annie is on the ropes and huck-a-bee will probably run out of money soon, so that would leave Romney, McCain and Paul to contend for the nomination.

RP could stay through until november probably and when all is said and done could probaby be third in total number of delegates. i also wouldn't be surprised if he picks up a state or two.

we need to take this momentum and elect congressmen and state congressman with this message. having allies in Congress will be huge.

Finally, my message board is up on my website at wal-streetweak.com. i plan to discuss economics, the oncoming recession and deflation, wal-street shennanigans, global cooling (which is very possible and very un-politically correct), precious metals, and general political and social topics. It will be a one-stop shop for internet neo-Consitutionalists.

i have some free articles and old Reports on it. and i plan to post a Rant on the wal-streetweak.com message board soon.

I live in north Alabama.

There are signs everywhere. Newspaper adds running and very dedicated meet up groups. Fred Thompson was the big thing here so when he dropped out things brightened up a lot here. North Alabama has meet all of its goals from the campaign and the meet up groups. This is how you win!

Freedom!

Huck in Alabama

Huck was just on Fox 35 in Orlando and no they did not mention Ron Paul at all much less Ron Paul receiving the Alabama Republican Assembly endorsement. Huck said, " Folks, we really need Alabama and Georgia on Feb 5th, we really need them."

Everyone should call or email Fox35 of Orlando.

Frankly, I'm sick of the censorship. We do not have a free press - we have a state run press.

I told them when they report on Mike Huckabee in Alabama, be sure to tell the viewers the Alabama Republican Assembly came out and endorsed Ron Paul today with over 2/3 majority. He chuckled and said OK.

The Reverend John Killian is our secret weapon

We will not lose Alabama as long as we have The Reverend John Killian on our side.
Here is the Reverend in action:

I can see him at the convention introducing Dr. Ron Paul as our next President.

Bring him to the Nat'l Convention!

Yes! Let Reverend John Killian introduce Ron Paul at the National Convention. He'll set the place on fire!
