"Missouri Republicans will probably still get to cast a ballot for a presidential nominee in February, but that vote won't actually count."
They just switched to a caucus as of last week.
The Republican Central Committee for Iowa, as we all should know, has many members who've endorsed Ron Paul for President.
Why is this important? See the above article.
January 3 will be host to a number of College Bowl games.
Why is this important? In Iowa, there is no professional football team and so college football takes on a whole new level of importance, far more than caucusing.
I went through the process last time and got to our state convention. It was rough. The establishment lied, cheated, stole, and bent rules to their own ends.
I'm about to go sell some more Gold and Silver to keep me traveling until the end of January. After I leave Iowa at the end of the Month I will be heading to South Carolina (where I'm trying to get a group together in the North, and meet with an already active group in Lexington) then Florida (where I'll be meeting up with a semi-active group in Pensacola). I'll be working at farms in both states to maintain residence and food.
After that I either have to go back home to California, or, if my chip-in gets funded (http://jaktober.chipin.com/the-tour-to-end-the-war) head to the East Coast.
I've got a few more meet-ups scheduled in Iowa to sync up the grassroots supporters with the official campaign. The effort is to find precinct leaders to speak on behalf of Ron Paul at the local caucuses and to organize phone banking for voter identification (and then door-to-door resource spreading...i.e. lawn signs).

Go on facebook and tell your friends in Iowa, that if they haven't gone to a meet-up yet they should attend one of these. We can give them direction for the next 3 months on how to best help out the campaign.
My efforts in Iowa will be recorded in my next entry of "The Ron Paul Road Warrior": http://freeindependentsun.com/republic/the-tour-to-end-the-w...
The meet-up was a great success, and we only had 7 people! Doing this again while I'm in Des Moines, this time with more notice and a conference room.
The goal out here is to identify precinct leaders for the Caucus and connect them with the official campaign. This will be the most productive use of the Grassroots (in addition to what ever other projects people want to work on, every effort is valuable!).

A plan by Colorado Republicans to move up their 2012 presidential caucuses to the day after the Iowa caucus has won final approval.
The Republican Central Committee voted Saturday to move the caucus from March 6 to Feb. 7.
State GOP Chairman Ryan Call says the earlier date could give Colorado a greater voice in the Republican presidential contest. State Republicans also shifted their caucus date in 2008.
The Republican field hasn’t significantly shifted in terms of rankings placement since our last edition, which belies the fact that individual percentages for candidates continue to shift dramatically. What can be said with a reasonable amount of certainty is that there is no clear GOP frontrunner in Iowa.
Here are some photos I took this past Saturday at the JW Marriott. A few of you asked if I visited this site, so hopefully there are a few photos of you in this set.
"If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House," Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. "There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president."
We have to be realistic about what's happening. The polls have us in the low teens. Hopefully they will go up, but I don't want to rely on hope. These are my observations.
1)The GOP machine will do nearly anything to block RP.
2)The DEM machine will do nearly anything to block RP.
3)The average person supports Ron Paul's message of stop the wars, spend that money at home, and bring stability to our economy.
4)The average person won't vote in the primaries.(I think the stat is less than 10% will vote).
5)The primaries and the general election are straw polls.(They are non binding.)
If you're organizing for an event, have a booth at a county fair, or any other such thing, use QR Codes to get people plugged into the R3VOlution!

Should we fail to secure enough delegates for the caucus states, and votes in the primary states, Ron Paul will have lost the election! We can't have that happen! A twitter account with a strong leader would be ideal for spreading this vital information.
Update: Ron Paul wins majority of delegates in Washington state. However, my inside sources just told me that GOP Chairs in different districts are withholding information on Delegates!
Please post this everywhere you know to let the media know we will not tolerate this kind of behavior from the GOP or from them.
Here we go, from Lew Moore's wife Maureen, which is about as official as it gets:
By our very preliminary count from you reports it is looking like we have at least twice the delegates as the other candidates!!
The Louisiana GOP Caucus is today (January 22nd) from 5 to 8 p.m. Central Time and we have a good shot at not only winning 1st place but taking ALL 44 of the National Delegates for Ron Paul.
