the neocons have put up. This is how they hold power the chairman are the ones to decide who gets to be on the ballot. If you do not have a large group of
Ron Paul people who have been precinct chairman in your district for the last 2 to 4 years then all you can do is vote for one of the neocons guys. This is why they win the rural areas because the small town folks have been scared to death by the scary terrorist so they want us to be strong and keep them safe (there tv news drones). It is hard to get even a handful of true constitutionalist in a small town. Although, I think atlanta had a large Ron Paul meetup group might want to check meetup.com. Since it coast to have a meetup, most Ron paul meetups closed down after he lost. Alot of them turned into Glenn beck 912 meetups (still havnt figured out how that happened but, oh well!). See it takes more than just voting to win in the Republican party. You have to actually get involved (even in the non election years to move up). It is hard to set in their meetings while all they talk about is war and homeland security and private public partenterships.
I am limited in my knowledge of the process so I'm not much help on when people hold their meetings you have to be on the inside of the party to keep up with it. If picking chairman for the next election is going on right now I find it suprizing their are not people in the movement not directing the masses of Ron Paul people how to take full advantage of the process. Then again they might be as clueless as I am. Ignorance is what kills this movement. Remember they dont teach this stuff in school so its not really peoples fault for not knowing what is going on inside of a private club. The sad part is the Dem party is even worse because there is absolutly no way to take that party over. All the superdelegates (politicians) from the begaining have more than 50% of the electors, so the politicians in the dem party pick the nominee. Yep they pick their own winner. So for a dem to criticize the republicans would be stupid. But the Republicans do protect the little sliver of a opening with every dirty trick in the book. If the American population only knew how hard the Ron Paul people faught last election and how hard it was swimming against the stream they would at least say thank them for trying. Most people are cluless to what is actually going on around them. They think they go vote and the election game goes on and some win and some lose the end. They are cluless. I wish I could be more help but I am in the same boat I have since moved to a small rural town and these people are nuts. There is no way to penatrate them. All these old timers went to school together and no outsider will ever be aloud in to their party. I have been looking for any liberty loving people here but this town has probably 80% of the people getting a government check of some kind. In this town both parties are socialist if you touch their checks our even talk about it I would say you would get hurt (I mean seriously real life hurt) I have already resigned myself to helping Ron Paul with $ only if he runs this time. It takes overwhelming numbers to beat them and you need people on the inside for information. The place I live has not been disturbed for over 100 years. Its like a perfectly still lake. If you drop one little pebble in the water they will all turn around to see who did it. I will continue looking for like minded people to grow numbers but this place is a fortress. I would like it if there is anyone in the Ron Paul movement that has full understanding of the process and how it works to please come up with videos or some kind of classes for the every day guy. And I don't mean traveling to colorado where Ron Paul is giving some classes. Most people don't have the money for that crap right now. If this movement does not start getting all this stuff figured out there is no reason for anyone to run. I guess it wouldnt hurt to run so we could get our message out and educate people about government and what is wrong with it. Lets not be talking about winning though if that is what we are doing.
