At the West Virginia Republican state convention today, Ron Paul received 10% and came in fourth. He was dropped from the second ballot.
At that point, the Paul people made a deal with the Huckabee people to get 3 of the 18 national delegates if they threw their second-ballot votes to Huckabee. The strategy worked and Huckabee won 52%. Ron Paul will receive 3, and Huckabee will receive 15 of West Virginia's 18 delegates.
The Romney campaign is crying foul.
Hey Ya'll, came to meet RP in person this sun,2/10/08 at home in the Lake Jackson Civic Center, Hwy 332, Lake Jackson, Tx. 1:30-4:pm . Come on down to the good doctors home town and show him your support. We would like to see hundreds, preferably thousands, of you here. Bring your family and friends. Spead the word and lets show the media how much we support Dr. Paul. Lake Jackson is about 50 miles south of Houston down Hwy 288 so there is plenty to see and do here if you want to come in early. Dust off your boots and hat and be sure to show up.

This is where all your work for Ron Paul pays off.
Tomorrow is Super Tuesday - 21 states, including yours, will be voting. All of the Ron Paul activism in your state-the precinct walking, ballot-access work, publicity, and volunteering-has been leading up to this. Now we need to finish the job with a full-force get-out-the-vote effort.
Go to the polls and vote as early as possible tomorrow. Wear a sticker to show your support for Ron Paul. Take some literature and, if you have time-make time if possible-help pass out literature outside the polls.
Call your friends and family and other Ron Paul supporters. Urge them to vote for Ron Paul, and to do it as early as they can. You'll be receiving calls as well, including automated calls from Dr. Paul and calls from Precinct Leaders who have identified you as a Ron Paul voter. Every vote counts-because every vote for Dr. Paul is a vote for the Constitution and against unlimited government intervention at home and abroad.
To the liberty loving Ron Paul supporters across America:
While my grandfather is working very hard to become the Republican nominee for President, he is also up against an opponent in the Republican primary in his congressional race in the 14th district of Texas.
Yes, there is a neo-con who supports the United States' attempt to police the world and spend money that the government does not have that wants to take the place of the most conservative member of Congress.
Good Morning America just called up Ron Paul HQ to ask us to get the word out that they’d like to see some of our supporters on the show tomorrow. They’ll be broadcasting from 44th and Broadway, New York City, tomorrow morning from 7 to 9 am Eastern. Get there early to get a good space (other campaigns will be out force as well) and bring plenty of signs. This is a great chance to show a huge national audience how big Ron Paul’s support is.
With "Super Tuesday" less than 24 hours away, ChristianBusinessDaily just announced its endorsement of Ron Paul in the Republican primary. To read more about the endorsement, click here.

Over the last few days, I have noticed some significant change in the support camp of Ron Paul. Many people (myself included) are offering their opinions as to why their favorite candidate, Ron Paul, is not doing so well in the primaries. There is a lot of talk right now about forming a new strategy, from "Ron Paul should run as a third party candidate" to "Ron Paul needs a debate coach." Whether or not we the people agree, we the people seem to share the same enthusiasm -- which is, GET RON PAUL ELECTED.
This came in from Crystal Broyles today, I have been in contact with her for the past week since we are starting a similar project. She is a 22 year old gal from Alabama that is a die hard Ron Paul supporter, and organized this by herself.
This paper can be a launching point. DIGG this, myspace, facebook, youtube, meetup, and all the other great Ron Paul websites.
Thanks so much for all the emails and interest in the Ron Paul
Newspaper. We have the site up and running now and we need
your donations to make this possible.
Dr. Paul's new book, The Revolution - A Manifesto is now ranked number 3 on Amazon's bestseller list, behind Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth, and John Grisham's The Appeal. See the list here.

This is Ron Paul's first original book in over 20 years. More info: Ron Paul Book Bomb
The above picture was taken by local media at the Denver Ron Paul rally on Saturday night. In the upper left corner you can (barely) see my friend Peter Spina of Goldseek.com holding up one of my posters at the rally! Peter says he got it signed by the good Doc, and will have it framed for the Goldseek offices. Thanks Peter!
Also, to anyone paying attention, I erroneously stated that my special Ebay poster auction was ending on Super Tuesday. That is wrong, it actually ends on Monday afternoon. I donated $1525.00 of the proceeds to the campaign on the Feb 1 money bomb under my wife's name. The remainder, up to $2300, will be donated at the auction's close on Monday.
Most importantly, today is the last day to canvass before Super Tuesday. Get your signs and literature out, and your list of republican neighbors and hit the streets. Put some signs up on the way to the polling place. Every little bit helps.
