New delegate here

I just wanted to relay the experience I had last Saturday. In Clackamas County, Oregon, we had our bonus delegate GOP meeting.

For the entire county GOP, we had 52 people show up to the meeting. The names of the new pcps were read and about half the room stood up. As they eyes widened, it became clear something unusual was going on. Never had this many NEW pcps shown up to an ordinary bonus delegate meeting before. After a few seconds of awkward silence the chair congratulated the new members and everyone applauded.

After a bit of housekeeping a vote was taken to nominate and then elect the 16 bonus delegates to our state convention. Many, if not most, of the new pcps were nominated and elected. During the vote tally I could see some very worried faces. It didn't matter. They knew they were outnumbered. Our new county gop is now made up of mostly Ron Paul republicans. In two hours our county, the third most populated in a state of 36 counties, became a Ron Paul county.

Do I think this wil make the difference of Ron Paul winning the nomination? No. I think McCain will win. But I CAN say the amount of support for Paul has never been greater than it is right now here. It's growing by the day. And to be honest, changing the GOP is so much fun and so gratifying there is only optimism now. Seeing the change unfold before your very eyes makes the thought of Paul not winning seem very acceptable now. And now I know why. He is winning.

This is wonderful news

We CAN take back the Republican party and it WILL become the party of the PEOPLE, RON PAUL PEOPLE. Bravo! We can do this.

Good job, Clackamas!

Bump!

Awesome, I'm so jealous.

My County Convention was one of the most horrible and corrupt events I've ever witnessed. Having a GOP dominated by RP supporters and not power hungry neocons should make participating politically a lot more fun where you live.

Thank you for your comment,

You said it very well > "And to be honest, changing the GOP is so much fun and so gratifying there is only optimism now. Seeing the change unfold before your very eyes makes the thought of Paul not winning seem very acceptable now. And now I know why. He is winning." [End] Thanks :-)

What you believe to be true, is true to you... "until you change your mind"

You're Awesome...

Way to be!!!!

Hey Archons', we are taking our planet back and there's nothing you can do about it!

Nice

Thanks for that.

My own belief is that, whether it's Obama, Clinton or McCain - it will be four more years of the same big government obfuscation. The Revolution will only grow larger and more vocal as more sheeple wake up and recognize what is happening around them.

And Ron Paul will still be here, backed by a slate of RP candidates.

What's great about the national conventions is not seeing who will be nominated this year, but who will be in a leadership position 4 years from now. Think Reagan; Obama (for entirely different reasons in my opinion). It's clear to me now that the current powers-that-be in the GOP do NOT want RP to have podium time in Minneapolis for that very reason and will do whatever they can to suppress him, but the message is more powerful than they know and will carry the day.

What's great about RP is that he does NOT compromise on principal. Leave the back door deals at home, folks.

Winning

Keep on keeping on. We gotta do it. We have to take our country back. It is a desperate situation. I know many people who are not against Ron Paul as much as they just think he cannot win. If they see he sure can win, they will vote for him. If we could run Dem, Rep and Ron Paul on the ballot, we could win. But let's see if we can simply win the Republican nomination. Let's give it all we have.

They're still working on our PCP results in Clatsop County.

Were you notified by mail? Do you know if Clatsop County will hold its own bonus delegate meeting? Thanks for any info you can provide.

please even if you personally dont believe in Miracles...

(as many in this day and age, don't) Just at least be open in your mind to one happening ...if you are the prayer type..Then when you pray, tell God or Y'eshua(Jesus) or whomever you pray to, that you are open to a miracle happening , and that you would love to see Ron Paul nominated for President of The United States....

--it cant hurt...can it?

Ron Paul will win...

in the most spectacular way! This is the one thing I say to myself all the time! And yes..I pray for my country ...and I truly believe Ron Paul is a gift from heaven!

He really already has won! he..he! You cant kill an idea whose time has come!

I'm from Clackamas originally myself and am glad to see your progress in taking over the party on the local level.

RP is winning

He is winning hearts and minds. And while most states are shaking the primary dust from their heels, an awakening is growing...and growing...an awakening that is bigger than this election.
