Do we still want Ron Paul to win the Republican nomination?

My answer is YES and this is how we do it. Right now is a critical time in the history of America. And we all know that the time to make a difference is now. Right now there is a critical battle going on in the MT Rushmore state it is a battle between the status quo and true Liberty.

This battle is between Mitt Romney & Ron Paul. And South Dakota could decide the delegates that either nominate Mitt Romney or nominate Ron Paul. I believe we can win with your help. Ron Paul has done very well in South Dakota polling & has even won some of them. BUT the only way we can win is with your help. The grassroots campaign here in South Dakota is very dedicated and we are running a strong campaign and are doing everything we can to win this state. But right now we NEED your help, your dedication & your time in order to win this crucial battle.

Doug Wead: Smoke and Mirrors in Louisiana

The Republican Party of Louisiana has a history of protecting the establishment. They have placed a number of landmines throughout their caucus and convention processes to make it extremely difficult for Ron Paul supporters to make it all of the way to the floor of the Republican National Convention.

One simple example is a cleverly written rule, which allowed the LAGOP to abruptly change the date of the caucus. As soon as the state party realized how organized we were, the date of the election was changed from early February to late April. The date change created the unprecedented scenario of putting the Louisiana primary BEFORE the caucus. Something that has never happened before in this state and is unlikely to ever happen again.

Nevada Video: Ron Paul Supporters Like "Swarm Of Killer Bees!"

http://youtu.be/32dWwV3JMO0
___

The failure to recognize what it takes to win an election, these very avid Ron Paul people who are more committed to a philosophy, much of which we all share -- small government, limited spending -- more committed to a philosophy than they are getting Republicans elected. It's time they got behind Romney.
...
These people are like a swarm of killer bees. They are just so determined and so passionate about what they believe, I don't think they'd listen to Gov. Sandoval or anybody else. They just have a mind of their own which is just pretty confusing for a lot of people. ~ Bob List

Gingrich to Romney: Watch Out for Ron Paul Delegates

Haha! They are like deer in the headlights right now..

Winning...

"Former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said the biggest danger facing the Mitt Romney campaign was the “Ron Paul forces.”

Gingrich, in an appearance on Sean Hannity Radio Monday, warned that the Republican National Convention could get out of hand if the Romney campaign didn’t come with a clear plan. “I think the biggest danger in the short run is that they not think through how they’re going to handle the convention in Tampa, and how they’re going to handle the Ron Paul forces,” Gingrich said.

Gingrich was at the state convention in Georgia last weekend and said the ”Ron Paul people” were out in force. “In the end they lost, but there were a couple of hours when it was pretty raucous,” Gingrich said. “As you know, the Ron Paul people won in Minnesota. I think they won in a number of other states. And so they’ve got a pretty good contingent.”

High School Students Applaud Ron Paul!

I am running for President of my class in my high school. Today, there was an open forum where a member of the faculty asked the candidates questions and the students would listen.

The other candidates and I went through some relatively easy questions, no big deal. Then came the question, who is one person who is alive that you would consider your role model? Others answered the question first, and then it came to me.

I said, "Congressman Ron Paul."

Immediately, I got the LOUDEST applause from essentially EVERYONE in the room, and there was no louder applause before or after that!

Romney Losing Ground To Obama While Paul Collects Delegates

by Kevin Kervick | Examiner.com

Mitt Romney has experienced an eleven point swing in his poll numbers vs. President Obama in just over one week, according to a daily tracking poll of likely voters from Rasmussen Reports. Just over a week ago, Romney was leading President Obama by eight percentage points at 50 - 42%. In today's poll, the President leads Romney by three percentage points at 47 - 44%.

While it is early in the election season, such a dramatic shift in the President's favor cannot be seen as good news for Governor Romney.

To make matters worse for the Romney team, Congressman Paul continues to gain on Romney by racking up delegates in state after state. This weekend, Congressman Paul won thirty-two out of forty delegates in Minnesota, further narrowing Governor Romney's delegate lead heading into the GOP national convention in August.

Audio, MN Public Radio: "Ron Paul has Texas-size influence in Minnesota GOP"!

Ron Paul has Texas-size influence in Minnesota GOP

by Mark Zdechlik, Minnesota Public Radio
May 21, 2012

ST. PAUL, Minn. — An overwhelming majority of the Minnesota delegation to this summer's Republican National Convention will be going to Tampa, Fla., as Ron Paul delegates.

The Texas congressman had a huge influence on last weekend's Minnesota GOP convention in St. Cloud. Beyond nearly sweeping the national delegates, state Rep. Kurt Bills, Paul's endorsed candidate to take on Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar this fall, won the GOP endorsement over two other Republicans.

Paul, a Republican presidential candidate, was on hand for both days of the Minnesota Republican convention, his presence carefully choreographed to appease the large contingent of his supporters.
