I finally came to my senses. I just signed up to become a delegate (2/17/08)

It's weird. I'm a huge Ron Paul supporter and believe it or not I was hesitant of becoming a delegate in my state of Florida.

I've donated hundreds of dollars to the Ron Paul campaign, held up signs, and distributed information door-to-door, but when it came time for me to sign up to become a delegate, I kept on postponing it. It's crazy.

So a couple of days ago I received an email from the campaign's Florida State Coordinator, Mark Cross asking me to become a delegate. Believe it or not, I was still hesitant to sign up!

So thankfully, a couple of minutes ago, I realized how stupid and nonsensical I was behaving and I finally had the courage to sign up.

I know how important it is to become a delegate and I don't care how much money it's going to cost or how much work it entails.

We can't give up and just hope that Ron Paul will get elected. We need to do something. Something big. I hope my story inspires those who were lazy like me and sign up.

Here's the link to sign up to become a delegate:

Don't forget, the delegates are the real voters. The delegates are the ones who will choose our next Republican nominee.

Where are you in Florida?

I am in Boca Raton. I am really new to this whole process and am looking for more information. I changed my affiliation from Democrat to Republican and I voted for Dr. Paul in the primary. I applied to become a delegate a few weeks ago. I am staying Republican so I can still have a shot at being a delegate. I am also feeling very let down by our educational system because I have a BA in Political Science. I see now that my degree is basically worthless because what I have learned in the past 6 months is more than I learned in 4 yrs of college--amazing the info that is left out. I wish to change that for my children. No more B.S. fed to the little people. I try to teach my kids to think for themselves. Sorry to go off topic. Is there anyone who can help us organize and support each other in Florida?

Funny. I'm also in Boca...

I signed up on Ron Paul's website a few hours ago. I'm expecting to receive some information by both mail and phone with tips and advice on how to go through the entire process. I'm sure it's easy and not that big of a deal. From all the testimonials I've read, seems like it's pretty straight forward.

Most importantly, you have to also register with the Republican Party of Florida in order to become a delegate.

Here's their website with step by step instructions:

I'm exactly the same as you. I was a registered Democrat, but I registered Republican to vote for Ron Paul in the primary election.

Yeah, I also learned sooooo much more in the past 9 months than I did in my college years. I've got to say that it feels good to know the real truths. It's really shocking how poor our education system is in this country. I'm a changed man, thanks to our Freedom movement (and the internet).

how to sign up

Signing up for more information at ronpaul2008.com does not make you a delegate in the state of Florida.

Here are the requirements for Florida:
You must be a registered republican by March 3rd.
You must submit a notarized delegate application and loyalty oath by certified mail between March 3rd and 7th.
You need to attend your congressional district caucus and be elected there.

Florida delegates are also bound through two ballots.

This is how we win, you

This is how we win, you think any of the sheep that voted for McCain in the states he won are going to turn off American Idol and sign up to be delegates? Forget about it. He'll have his establishment goons, but we have the ability to severely outnumber them come convention time. It's time for a republican coup.

This is how we do it for an
