If you are still looking for money to get to Tampa and you are a Delegate or Alternate there is A LINK BURIED INSIDE THE VIP PASS FORM on EventBrite.
EMAIL Brian Gentry email@example.com AND JUST ASK FOR IT. I can't send you my link because it is already been claimed.
They will have you fill out a brief form asking how much you expect your costs to be, how much you have on hand, and how much you are short.
The Tampa Police Department demonstrated the equipment and tactics they will use during the Republican National Convention during a simulated protest turned riot for Tampa business leaders and press at the Tampa Police Academy on August 16, 2012.

Then They Came For Me (2012)
Adapted from the original (First they came...) by Rev. Martin Niemoller (1937).
First they came for the pot smokers, illegally searching and seizing contraband from their private automobiles at these so called “License Check Points,” by non uniformed, military fatigue wearing police officers, who used threats and coercions to obtain permission to search. But I said nothing, because I'm not an illegal drug user!
Blaze Article About Convention Speakers is Fairly Pro-Paul
A Blaze article outlining who is and isn't speaking at the RNC Convention seems pretty pro-Paul.
Perhaps they also need to be reminded of the collusion between the Romney camp and the RNC to keep Paul's delegates out and keep him off the ballot. Romney's silence on this violence and corruption is tacit approval of it.
Had a conversation with an indie reporter last night who was at the 2004 Democratic Convention, reporting the kinds of things that don't make it onto TV. He said in order to preserve an appearance of monolithic unity the Kerry people were taking away other primary candidates' signs even before Kerry was officially nominated, so they wouldn't be caught by the television cameras.
They didn't want the cameras to catch a whiff of the fact that there was or had been anyone else in the race.
Therefore we need to have our signs in a number of formats, including roll-up which will fit into a pants leg or tucked under your shirt.
Prepare for them to play dirty. We have every right to display Paul signs before the final nomination vote is over and there is an OFFICIAL nominee, not the railroad train they are trying to assume.
The new FEC report (July financials) has just been posted.
If you wish to see all the detail, here it is:
With $2,497,183 on hand at the end of July, looks like there is plenty of money to help the delegates.

Ron Paul Can Beat Obama And Romney Can't
A national Pulse Opinion Research poll conducted 14 August 2012, reveals 41% of likely voters would choose Ron Paul over Barack Obama for President.
The average of all the major polls, as reported on RealClearPolitics.com, has Obama leading Romney by 3.5%. Obama leads Romney 237 to 191 in the Electoral College, and InTrade has Obama 57% and Romney 42%. Romney can't beat Obama and Ron Paul can.
BELFAST — The battle over whether Maine Republican Party delegates who support Congressman Ron Paul should be allowed to participate in the Republican National Convention in Tampa moved to the courts Friday.
Friday delegates Stavros Mendros, Brent Tweed and Matthew Mcdonald filed a request for an injunction with Belfast Superior Court.
It asks that the court rule against the Republican National Committee and stop its process of investigating whether 21 Paul delegates from Maine were elected legally during the party's state convention in Maine.
This link leads to a video that is not mine. I won't get anything for sharing it, I have no clue who owns it.
Let's play a game where we post it on our social media sites today (8/17/2012) and see how far we can spread it in 7 days. What can we lose?
Call it what you will, spread Dr. Paul's message hard these last days. If the delegates vote by their conscience, history can be made in Tampa. I believe it, you should too. Collectively we are a force to be reckoned with... let's start acting like it again! Ready... set... GO!
How a defense-based industry is preparing to fill the home skies with robots
By Clay Dillow | PopSci
If you want to know what the future looks like, sit down and have a talk with Roy Minson. He’s the senior vice president and general manager of unmanned aircraft systems at Aerovironment, the manufacturer of nearly 85 percent of the Department of Defense’s unmanned aircraft fleet--not the Reapers and Predators that so often make headlines, but small aerial systems that make up the vast majority of the DoD’s 7,000 strong unmanned aircraft fleet. That is to say, business with the defense sector is good at Aerovironment. But today Minson is talking almost exclusively about non-military applications for the company’s hardware--him, and just about everybody else at the nation’s largest robotic systems show.
That’s partially because I’m peppering him with questions about civilian drone applications, but our conversation was bound to wander in this direction. The DoD certainly isn’t going anywhere, but defense spending cuts hang over this place like the sword of Damocles. The term for next year’s mandated defense spending cuts, “sequestration,” can be overheard around the exhibit hall here at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International’s annual North American trade show like some kind of new and derogatory slang.
Update. I had posted this, and had not yet seen that Ben Swann had produced a video and called Congressman Ryan out on the same illogical quote (you will see it below). But, it goes to show, Americans are starting to wake up. My post:
I am sure Congressman Ryan is a nice guy. However, his voting record on items related to the Constitution and civil liberties, is anything but nice.
I am sure the congressman is good with his own money, even while, as a "conservative", he had no problem taking by force $800 Billion of the taxpayer's money and distributing it to all the millionaires at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and friends.
In fact, the congressman is on record on the house floor...begging for TARP to be passed. Here was his quote from the floor that day: "Madame speaker, this bill [TARP] offends my principles. But I am going to vote for this bill, in order to preserve my principles, in order to preserve this free enterprise system."
