[Business Insider] Mitt Romney may have all but locked up the Republican nomination with his victories in the East Coast primaries this week, but Ron Paul and his army of acolytes aren't ready to give up the fight just yet.
As the rest of the political world's attention shifts to the general election, Paul is still quietly amassing delegates at district and county conventions, and is now poised to take a real bite — or at least a big nibble — out of Romney's delegate total.
In just the last week, Paul locked up 49 delegates, including five in Pennsylvania and four in Rhode Island, two states thought to be firmly on Romney's turf. In Minnesota, Paul won 20 of the 24 delegates awarded at last weekend's district caucuses, an impressive sweep that guarantees that Paul will control a majority of the state's delegation at the Republican National Convention.

HE WON LIVINGSTON PARISH!!!!!!
Guys big news!
I'm at the Massachusetts 5th congressional district presidential caucuses and the Ron Paul slate just won the 3 delegates for this district!! (100 votes for Paul vs 50 for the Romney slate). Major disappointment for the Romney campaign in his own back yard! (Belmont is in the Massachusetts 5th)
We won the 3 alternates too.
The Romney campaign people don't look very happy about this!

Liberty Love Productions is pleased to announce:
The Liberty Love Fest
April 28th, 2012.
The New England Liberty Love Fest has been an event years in the making, and one could reasonably argue that we are a piece in a puzzle centuries long. The battle between liberty and tyranny has been an eternal one, but for far too long has it felt like the flickering light of freedom has been getting fainter and fainter with each passing year.
The signing of the Declaration of Independence was a rare event in human history where our forefathers made a universal declaration to establish a nation of free people’s, governed by their own will and accord, and sadly we have descended away from that into dangerous territory. Our nation and world is embarking into a highly advanced technological control grid where pointless and horrific wars are waged with impunity, corrupt men steal our wealth and property while abusing the poor, poison our food, water, medicine, and minds, and these politicians- these pathetic excuses for human beings who are bought and paid for are not only ready, but eagerly lustful to sell our future and freedoms off to the highest bidder, and they do it with reckless abandonment in orgy of corruption that will eventually engulf and destroy their own progeny as well.
But we all know there is one man that has stood alone, who for years was the one voice of sanity and morality in a dark wilderness of despots and miscreants. Ron Paul is a rare individual who has had the integrity and fortitude to resist the temptations of Washington’s never ending capacity to attract the corrupted and weaken the weary. He is an individual that has taught, inspired, and enlightened so many people to the greatest and most productive form of commerce; Liberty.

Here’s something you hear on cable news all the time: Ron Paul hasn’t won a primary. He hasn’t won a caucus. Sure, he’s stealing a delegate at state conventions here and there, because his forces are well organized. But he’s lost. He should drop out and settle for an early-afternoon speaking slot at the Republican convention.
Here’s something you don’t hear: Representative Paul actually beat Mitt Romney in 10 states. In a manner of speaking.
What are we talking about? Money, that’s what. Political pros are fond of talking about the “money primary,” in which candidates compete, not for votes, but for campaign donations. It’s a crucial part of any nomination race, because a candidate without cash is like a shark that’s not moving forward, if you understand what we’re saying.
Ron Paul’s 2012 campaign has won the majority of Washington’s delegates to the Republican National Convention, and a number of other states are expected to follow suit, pointing to a hectic convention in which Mitt Romney’s path to the nomination may face a major insurgent opponent.
Washington is now the third state, after Iowa and Minnesota, in which Ron Paul has locked up at least half of the state’s nominating delegates. In order to be officially entered in nomination at the Tampa, Fla., convention, he needs to secure half or more of the delegates in five states, and as of Thursday, he looks poised to grab a majority of delegates in other states like North Dakota and Maine in coming weeks.
Ron Paul is going back to California! The campaign has announced that Dr. Paul will hold rallies next week at two large California universities and continue to spread his message of freedom and liberty!
The first stop is at The University of California, Davis, and is scheduled for Thursday, May 3rd, at 7:00 PM. The event will be held in the West Memorial Union Quad. U.C. Davis is well known for academic excellence, and is currently ranked as one of the top 10 public universities in the country. The school currently enrolls over 25,000 undergrads and 7,000 graduate students.
Dr. Paul will then go south to vitist The University of California, San Diego. He will speak at the Warren Mall on Friday, May 4th, at 7:00 PM. The reception in San Diego should be outstanding, as the city is home to a large population of active and retired military personel, you are well known for supporting Ron Paul's foreign policy ideas.

The Arkansas Super Brochure mailings are up. Every Super Brochure mailings has the potential to change a person's life. I will always remember the first time I was introduced to Congressman Ron Paul.

And I use this experience to know that the only way others can learn about Dr. Paul is if someone introduces him to them.
Go right now and introduce people in Arkansas to the "Champion of the Constitution":

Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who has said he’ll step down from office at yearend, has inspired a crop of candidates who are running for office on his libertarian platform.
Yesterday they did an in depth article: Ron Paul's Torchbearers

Thousands of chanting, cheering supporters flooded the University of Texas campus to show Ron Paul some love Thursday night, undaunted by the prospect that the Texas congressman is a long shot for the GOP presidential nomination.
There is more to winning than victory at the polls, Paul told the crowd, which broke into occasional chants of "President Paul."
"I'm convinced a revolution is going on. It is an intellectual revolution," Paul said.
"It is going to be difficult, but it is always glorious to have success. And we will have success," he said. "Regardless of what happens next week, next month, November — the spirit of this revolution is not going away."
