Given that Ron Paul supporters are inclined to be independent thinkers, many of us will follow our own orders.
If you were fortunate enough to have been selected and accepted the responsibility of being a delegate, then attend to your duty and do everything you can to advance the cause of freedom, and the unlikely selection of Ron Paul at the convention. If you can make the trip to Tampa to show your support then do so. Go because that is your choice, not because you were commanded; freedom, not obedience to orders is the whole basis of Ron Paul's campaign, after all.
As far as gaining control of the Republican apparatus, I believe that financial, economic, and political collapse will occur long before the small minority we are can accomplish that difficult, if not impossible, task. I for one would prefer to see our energies directed to convincing the countless number of gun toting government employees that it is in their own best interest to not follow orders from on high when violence against this corrupt government erupts. What brought down the USSR was not the good spirit of those in power; it was the refusal of the military to fire on the protesters in Moscow that ended that corrupt central government.
"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
