Now we go to the State Caucus :)

Here is an updated analysis from Frankie Brown
A list of rules that we know were violated:
- Delegates of the convention attempted to nominate people from the floor yet were summarily ignored without vote by the chairman.
Like many of my fellow Ron Paul supporters, I am sharing my thoughts and insights with my family, friends, coworkers, and others with whom I come in contact on a daily basis. As part of this, I am referring people to the DP website.
I am asking that we keep our comments and language appropriate for an open forum such as this. I am certainly not advocating censorship, but rather self-monitoring of our language.
A large part of personal freedom and liberty is self- responsibility; it would be a shame to have someone look into Dr. Paul, only to be turned off by innapropriate language and content on a site that represents him so well.
OK, enough preaching...
RON PAUL 2012
Ben Swann co-anchor at WXIX Fox 19 in Cincinnati and host of Reality Check joins Daily Paul Radio with Kurt Wallace for ‘Ben Swann talks Fourth Branch of Government, Free Speech and Delegate Chaos’ to discuss how he approaches reporting the facts of complex issues and our founding fathers emphasis on free speech, the first amendment and freedom of the press. He also discusses reporting on the delegate process and the overwhelming evidence in not counting the votes in Maine plus proceedural violations at caucuses/delegate meetings in Missouri and Georgia.
HAMMOND, La. – Congressman Ron Paul drew an enthusiastic crowd of 1500 people to a rural college town Friday evening for a speech that harshly attacked the federal government in advance of Saturday’s primary.
At University Hall, the basketball stadium for Southeastern Louisiana University, supporters wore name tags to facilitate networking in advance of the state’s Republican caucuses beginning next month.
Although the state’s Republican presidential primary is Saturday, most of the state’s delegation to the Republican National Convention in Tampa will be decided at caucuses April 28 and the state party convention on June 2.
Looking relaxed and fit in a button-down shirt and a pair of blue jeans, Paul received numerous rounds of cheers during his 40-minute address.
“The revolution is alive and well,” he said before beginning his standard stump speech, which hit on his favorite themes.
Paul called the federal budget “ridiculous” and said the present entitlement system “doesn’t work.” The Federal Reserve? “A failure.”
Here is a short video of Ron Paul's Introduction today at Louisiana College in Pineville, La. Camera pans to the back half way through to see the entire crowd.
Bryan Spencer, former St. Charles County Republican Central Committeeman and Caucus Subcommittee Chairman, admits to premeditated rigging of the St. Charles County Caucus.
This video was recorded surreptitiously on Monday, March 19 - two days after the caucus and three days before it was decided to be rescheduled - at a Pachyderms meeting.
The Hunger Games is a fabulous anti-war novel, and the movie version is opening Friday March 23. The main characters are teenagers living in a downward spiraling society based on fear and war. Sounds kind of familiar, eh?
If you are a fan of the best selling book, you might consider organizing a sign wave, or passing out the Super brochure, at a theater showing the film during the opening weekend.
Most people are so sick of American politics they are not at all interested in the current presidential race. It just seems pointless.
But the Hunger Games puts a different spin on things. This world can get much worse VERY FAST.
Katniss, Peeta and Gale would be able to identify with Ron Paul giving us the opportunity to change our leadership before it is too late. Why not use this great story to stir folks to action, rouse support for Ron Paul?
Well, well...Dr. Paul is on the money again.
Special Report: Intel shows Iran nuclear threat not imminent
Jonathan Davis, lead singer for hard-rock band Korn, wants Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul to replace President Obama in the White House.
During an appearance at Ramstein Air Base in Germany last week, Davis was asked, “Out of the four Republican candidates and Obama, who would you prefer to be president?”
“Ron Paul," he replied. (The conversation was filmed and posted on YouTube.)
Last year, the musician knocked President Barack Obama calling him “an Illuminati puppet” in an interview with Billboard.com. “He’s basically dragged this country down into the worst it’s ever been,” Davis said. “Like I say about the White House, ‘You’ve built this house of shame.’ Everybody looked up at the White House and America, and now I think it’s like a house of shame. I miss the old days when people were proud to be American.”
Voting Ron Paul is the only real way to shake things up:
Paul supporter fights Scott County GOP convention results
Quad City Times - Ed Tibbetts
A faction of the Scott County Republican Party is calling to reconvene the county convention Thursday, arguing the slate of delegates chosen earlier this month to move on to district and state conventions was selected improperly.
The state party, however, sided Tuesday with local party officials, who say the convention was conducted properly.
Michael Elliott, a coordinator for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign in Scott County, said Tuesday he expects 100 to 150 delegates, possibly more, to show at 6 p.m. Thursday at Tanglewood Hills Pavilion, 4250 Middle Road, Bettendorf.
“All we’re asking is the proper rules be followed,” he said.
The dispute stems from the March 10 convention, where a slate of 123 delegates and 123 alternates were selected for the district and state conventions.
Elliott and other Paul supporters say they were shortchanged by the convention’s nominating committee and the rules weren’t followed.
via Michael Yon: The mass murder in Afghanistan was predictable. Twice in the past three weeks, I published that it was coming. Why was I able to write this with sad confidence? I’ve spent more time with combat troops in these wars than any other writer: about four years in total in country, and three with combat troops.
About 200 coalition members have been killed or wounded from insider attacks. Afghan President Hamid Karzai is tantamount to being Taliban and has not bothered to apologize. Instead, Karzai whips up anti-U.S. fervor at every opportunity. Twice, Karzai has threatened to leave politics and join the Taliban.
Even our most disciplined troops — not the few problem troops — have lost all idealism. They have not lost heart for the fight. Mostly, they just don’t care. They fight because they are ordered to fight, but they have eyes wide open. The halfhearted surge and sudden drawdown leave little room for success.
We face a discipline collapse. The bulk of our force is solid — then there’s a small fraction, probably a sliver of a percent, who might be crushed by the pressure.
On Feb. 24, I published:
“As the prevalence of insider attacks rises, and we lose more troops to Afghan troops going berserk and murdering our people, it’s likely just a matter of time before a U.S. troop or troops turn the table and intentionally slaughter Afghan forces.
