Hello fellow patriots. This is my first post here, although I have been following the action for the past several months. I am 40 years old and this is the first time that I have even considered voting as a Republican. Go figure! Kudos to all of you for your incredible dedication and hard work! You are an inspiration!
Anyway, to get to the point, I found some information that may be helpful...
"As set out in the Rules of the Republican Party, delegates have the ability to vote according to the delegates’ preference, even if that is contrary to the outcome of each state’s primary. According to one source, the legal counsel for the Republican National Convention in 2008 stated: “[The] RNC does not recognize a state’s binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose.” Thus, if a delegate were to challenge his or her ability to vote as a free agent, he or she would have grounds under Rule 38."

Jack Burkman is the only political consultant who has credibly proven his expertise and knows what he's talking about. He predicted the failure of every candidate's campaigns back in August 2011. (including Romney) He has consistantly held the position that Ron Paul can beat Romney and Obama.
And it has played out exactly as he predicted.

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 4/30/12: The Alarming Suicide Epidemic in the Military
I'm at the Louisiana HQ right now. It's confirmed...Ron Paul won Louisiana!!!
We just swept MA district 7, getting the 3 delegates and 3 alternates.
And I heard the same about districts 2, 3 and 5.
We might just sweep this whole state -- and then some.
UPDATE: regarding the sticker issue, just wanted to add that they were handing those out inside the building at district 7 as well. Barring that, the rest of the meeting ran smoothly and without controversy.
Updated: 7:45pm Alaska Time
It is confirmed that Ron Paul supporter Russ Millete was voted in as chair. (Note that according to AK Republican rules he will not have full power until Feb. 2013). Co-chair is RP supporter Deb Brown.
Also, secretary and treasurer are RP supporters.
The 6 delegates that were assigned to Ron Paul were filled by the top RP supporters that we wanted. Also, we got the 6 alternates.
The only bonus in the delegate count was that 3 RP people got in as alternates for the Santorum team.
Staffers removed the tall ladder at the side of the room to prevent photographers from capturing the vast empty space between the press file and the crowd...
EDIT: This article is from Jan, sorry I didn't notice myself. I left a comment in the thread below when someone noticed it but I didn't realize it had gotten traction and I needed to edit the top post.
I don't know anybody who wants to be lied to, kept ignorant, or fooled on a consistent basis.
Oh sure, there are people who don't want to know that they have cancer, enjoy a stage magician, or go to a movie hoping to be able to lose themselves temporarily in a fantasy world.
But I don't know anyone who consciously WANTS reporters, columnists, and news analysts to distort, spin and censor their information.
So how do the current newspapers, magazines, TV networks, cable channels, and radio stations stay in business?
Just wanted to share.
"Wiped Off The Map" - The Rumor of the Century
Across the world, a dangerous rumor has spread that could have catastrophic implications. According to legend, Iran's President has threatened to destroy Israel, or, to quote the misquote, "Israel must be wiped off the map". Contrary to popular belief, this statement was never made, as the following article will prove.
Article about NV state convention:
The Ron Paul presidential campaign has a guerrilla-style takeover strategy heading into next week’s Nevada Republican Convention at John Ascuaga’s Nugget in Sparks.
The campaign wants to dominate the convention by delivering as many as 65 percent of the total delegates to the convention floor.
“Whoever shows up controls the tempo of the meeting,” said Carl Bunce, Paul’s campaign chairman for Nevada.
Those who show up will elect 25 of Nevada’s 28 national convention delegates, as three spots for the state chairman, national committeeman and committeewoman are already taken.
The Ron Paul folks want to stack that number with their people. Other state Ron Paul organizations are doing the same, Republicans said.
