I just got back from my local GOP meeting. Time to take off the infiltration panty hose and stealth delegate lipstick.
My husband and I are older, and we definitely do not fit the stereotypical Ron Paul supporter these people are expecting, and I have to say....the old establishment is very nice to people they think are their own. At least where I live.
I just wonder how unwelcoming they'd be if they knew who we support.
This isn't for sissies. You have to go to the meetings, meet people and tell them your name so they'll remember you when it comes time to vote in delegates, etc. And frankly, it's boring. I listened to a long speech tonight and there were a million other things I would've rather been doing (like reading on here or griping with my RP friends on Facebook).
The only thing that kept me there was knowing Ron Paul has done so much work for us, and my time is a very small thing I can give back to him. Don't just talk about helping him, do it. We all have to.
The two most important days in your life are the day you are born...and the day you find out why. -Mark Twain
