Comment: Vast Difference

Vast Difference

There is a vast difference between going to a caucus and convention and being elected as a delegate (I was one of the planners that helped get a complete win, every delegate, of the only county caucus in '08 and we got close again in '12, by the way). Much different than becoming part of the machine. Yes, the campaign encouraged us to be active during the primaries and get as many delegates as possible - which we did.

Again, I don't hold it against you and I think it is a noble goal. But, it still doesn't justify you belittling others and playing the "Paulier-than-thou" card against people that find the GOP irrelevant. They love liberty no less than you. It might actually be more useful to try to get into the local Democrat circles and help change the mindset in all parties - which Dr. Paul DID tell us to do.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
