As soon as Dr. Paul announced I started working to get our district organized. I was also involved in 2008 and the only one in my area back then that was out canvassing and making phone calls. I took campaigning courses getting ready. We had our delegates already ready when the campaign finally got around to calling for delegates and signature gathering. The only distict in our state that did... Then all of a sudden people were being told to ignore the grassroots leaders and stop doing anything that we had planned to canvass and promote Dr. Paul, including meet-ups. Everything I'd worked on getting organized for months fell apart - nobody would help canvass because they were being told not to... Then there was a big push for everybody to be over in IA to help them and I had no help getting anything done in our own area.
