Let’s Win Arkansas: Anonymous Donor Pledges $2500!

Great news: I have a guarantee of $2,500 to use for SB mailings in Arkansas. The money kicks in WHEN we match it. My donors are FIRED-UP by our results in LA. Let’s show them what we can do and match their funds quickly. More could be coming!!

I know a lot of people in Arkansas who are pro-Ron Paul, including several owners of health food stores. Let's combine mailings with canvassing and calls. With Santorum out of the race, we can open even more eyes.

After hitting the streets all over the country, I am convinced about one thing. It’s that if you show enough Americans about Dr. Paul’s message, you will win plenty of converts.

Let’s use one of our most powerful tools, the Super Brochure, to win the upcoming states. We can win Arkansas. We just have to combine the canvassing, with direct mail, and, finally, confirming the vote. So, let's get out the vote through direct mail--buy your precincts, now:

“Thank you for wearing that.”

“Thank you for wearing that.”

As a married man with two children, the days of me putting great thought into what I am going to wear for the day have long left me. However, this past weekend I did take great pride in wearing my Ron Paul t-shirt. Now I have worn the shirt before to family outings, public places and even on vacation in Boston when my wife and I walked the Freedom Trail. But this past weekend was special.

I have the great honor of being a part of a committee that hosts an event every year where students all across the state of Ohio can come and compete in various events. All totaled, about 1,500 students and countless parents, volunteers and pastors – yes pastors – attend the event. See, this is a religious event full of the most devout evangelical Christians that you can find. And since the majority of my time is spent running around and conversing with students, I saw it as an opportunity to help educate the next generation – should they ask of course.

However, much to my surprise, I was stopped by more parents and pastors than I can remember. Some simply said thanks and some briefly chanted “President Paul”. But a great deal of them stopped with legitimate questions. One man in particular, a pastor of a fairly large church, stopped me to discuss two “issues” that he takes with Dr. Paul. His first was his desire to legalize marijuana. After a brief discussion where I explained the costs of the War on Drugs along with the ease at which I was able to purchase pot in high and the difficultly with purchasing alcohol (I wasn’t always a Christian), he quickly relented on this issue. I could tell that this was only a side point for him, and that his greatest hang up with The Good Doctor was coming next.

“A rogue convention? How GOP party rules may surprise in 2012”

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."

GOP Strategist Video: "Ron Paul Has Strongest Base. He Can Beat Romney & Obama."

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.

Near Sweep for Ron Paul in Massachusetts

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.

Victory in Alaska!

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.
