Delegate prep meeting for WA leg. district 2 for the County Convention is PACKED!

There was an unbelievable amount of people at our delegate prep meeting for the County Convention.

When the meet-up leader asked who wanted to try to get to go to state convention almost everyone raised their hand!

He spoke about the slate and people being willing to take their name off the list if there were too many so we wouldn't water down the vote.

VERY encouraging! Wish you were here, you would all be so proud!!! So would Ron Paul!!!

Thousands Turn Out for President Paul in Missouri Today

Ron addressed several thousand this afternoon on the University of Missouri campus. As always, his speech was peppered with words and phrases you'll never hear from the other candidates, or the incumbent, or the mainstream media: the Patriot Act is the "Repeal the Fourth Amendment Act"; Washington is full of "warmongers" and "tyrants"; a preemptive strike is "a fancy word for starting a war"; another candidate is a "theocrat"; tolerance consists of "allowing people to do things you don't approve of, and letting them bear the consequences", etc.

GOP Insiders: Paul on track to get more delegates than Romney in Iowa

The Huffington Post, quoting "state insiders", is now reporting that "Rick Santorum and Ron Paul are best positioned to win the most delegates in Iowa as the Republican primary process moves forward, making Mitt Romney the odd man out."

Specifically:

* Steve Scheffler, one of the state's three Republican National Committee members, says that the Iowa delegate count being reported by the AP and others -- which shows Romney with way more delegates than Paul -- is not valid or correct "at all".

* Craig Robinson, who formerly served as the Political Director of the Republican Party of Iowa, laments that Ron Paul may win THE MOST delegates in Iowa, i.e. 1st place. (Robinson was responsible for organizing the 2007 Iowa Straw Poll and the 2008 First-in-the-Nation Iowa Caucuses.)

* While numerous GOP members and media outlets imply that Paul supporters are hostile infiltrators, the article explains that "It's not as if the Paul movement in Iowa is simply a bunch of outsiders crashing the gates of the state GOP", noting as an example that "the state party chairman -- as of early February -- is another former co-chair of Paul's presidential campaign in Iowa, A.J. Spiker".

Ben Swann accused of naivete for defending the Rule of Law by Ret. AF Lt. Col. Waxman...

Here is Ben's rather brilliant defense, IMO.

I'm so glad he used my oft used response, too, which is:
2 wrongs(or 60)don't make a right! It's NOT a Partisan issue.[damn-it]

Ret. AF Lt. Col. Waxman is the complaintant.

Panetta Orders Marines to Disarm before Afghanistan Speech

Skip to 2:40 for disarming. The current top comment pretty much sums it up...Scared of the killers you helped create, huh? Ironic.

...the incident is believed to be the first time they were stripped of guns during an address by their own secretary of defence.

Newt Gingrich Tried to Install Internal Passports On Us In 1998 - Guess Who Stopped Him?

The question the American people—conservatives and liberals alike—need to be asking themselves is—do they want a man in the White House who has already tried, and failed, to impose an Internal Passport on them? The Soviets did it to the Russian people in 1917. The fascists in Italy did it in 1924. The Nazis did it to the German people in 1933, and Newt Gingrich tried to do to the American people in 1998.

Guess who stopped him?

"It began with people being schooled to be stupid”

"This video is about how government-run schooling contributed to the rise of socialism, imperialism and eventually fascism in Germany between the 1890s and 1940s."

My Ron Paul yard sign was stolen. Amazing encounter with the sheriff

I loved my street sign. It got thousands of views every day. I put two mini american flags on top of it for some extra kick. I drive home from class, and the sign is gone.

I'm not going to let this go unnoticed, so I called the sheriff.

The sheriff arrived, and I told him I put up a Ron Paul sign and it got stolen. I explained how I know he can't find it and that I just wanted them to know. I said I'm going to keep putting them up (I have 6 more signs). He told me to keep putting them up. He said things like, "I feel your pain putting up a sign like this. And during political season we deal with a lot of stuff like this." He had a theory that some Santorum supporters probably came by and thought it would be funny to steal my sign. I noticed he knew a bit about politics. He told me that I obviously know my rights and suggested I try and citizens arrest them if I spot them coming again.

Then the conversation got good. He told me, that he can't endorse Ron Paul in uniform, but he agrees with just about everything he says. He said he served in Iraq for many years and is very against the war. We started talking about undeclared wars, constitutionalism, and why we need to get out of Afghanistan, Iraq, and should not get into Iran. He said his job as sheriff is to protect our constitutional rights. He told me that he watches his coworkers to ensure they are doing the same. He told me he voted for a libertarian candidate for the last 3 presidents, but sadly none of them have won.

The DIRTY word NO GOP convention wants you to know about, but YOU WANT TO KNOW: Becoming an ELECTOR

Originally Published February 20, 2012

I hope everyone here realizes that you don't vote for the President when it comes down to the general election. Democrat vs Republican vs Third Party

Your State Electors vote for the President and they are NOT bound to party. You vote in hopes your elector votes the way you and your state voted. So if the popular vote was won by Gore, you hope the electors follow. These are called electoral votes, and electors are decided at district and state party conventions.

NY Times OP Ed: "Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs"

Wow! Read this!

--------------------------------

TODAY is my last day at Goldman Sachs. After almost 12 years at the firm — first as a summer intern while at Stanford, then in New York for 10 years, and now in London — I believe I have worked here long enough to understand the trajectory of its culture, its people and its identity. And I can honestly say that the environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it.

To put the problem in the simplest terms, the interests of the client continue to be sidelined in the way the firm operates and thinks about making money. Goldman Sachs is one of the world’s largest and most important investment banks and it is too integral to global finance to continue to act this way. The firm has veered so far from the place I joined right out of college that I can no longer in good conscience say that I identify with what it stands for.

Continued. Here is the link:
