I could tell there were many Ron Paul supporters at the Utah convention and I am pleased to report that we acted in a very professional manner. I was a state delegate from Salt Lake County and I voted for Dr. Paul in the primary. Most Ron Paul supporters went incognito to the convention and so I think there were many more than people might have suspected. As a committed Ron Paul supporter, we want to work within the party to return to traditional Republican principles. Kudos to Lowell Nelson for organizing a consensus slate with delegates that were committed to free markets, small government, civil liberties, fiscal conservatism, and a humble foreign policy.

I was disappointed that the convention ended without voting on several important resolutions. Also, the proportional representation ammendment to the Utah Republican Constitution was narowly defeated which I thought was tragic as this would have created a much fairer apportioning system of delegates and would have given Republican presidential candidates an incentive to come to Utah and campaign here.

The good news is that the motion to unbind the delegates from Romney on the first vote was removed from the table, which means that Romeny will get all of the votes on the first ballot. Any delegate that was elected at this convention will be free to vote for Dr. Paul. The frustration this is that McCain had a slate of hand-picked delegates that appeared to favor his nomination and I think many of these delegates were elected as national delegates. But when I heard the chairman read of the list I did recognize several delegates that I know to be favorable to Dr. Paul, so I’m sure he won some delegates. I believe Brian Jenkins, from congressional district #2 is a pro-Paul delegate.

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

lynn, that's great news

you may however want to remove the name of the pro-Paul delegate from district #2. Remember, they are watching us.
