We got 7 of 7 delegates and the only two alt's elected were supporters also. Can't wait for the convention!!!

It's very repetitive, but helps to understand the law through the legal definitions like "taxable income" and "income derived from within/without the United States". This is the "861" argument and has been shot down, but makes more sense than anything else I've seen.
The answer is they all get zero delegates, the same as DC. But Texas will be huge and is very into NASCAR. It could also help in Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Kentucky. That's 234 district delegates up for grabs or a total 398 total delegates.
The way I understand it is that some delegates are already chosen. Republican chairmen and other party officials are automatically delegates. In Texas, our GOP governor Rick Perry is a delegate I believe. So these are party loyals, but the districts are alloted for the voters. In Texas, the evening of the primary the voters elect the delegates. Find out how to be a delegate in your state so we have more delegates. Technically, even though other candidates win more delegates, they could be Ron Paul supporters and swing the vote at the national conference. Anybody else chime in if I'm off on something.
We really need to focus on the district delegates and primary dates. Take a look here: total del. / district del. / primary time
New Jersey 46% - 52 total – 39 district – super tuesday
Arkansas 34.6% - 34 total – 12 district – super tuesday
North Carolina 30.2% - 69 total – 39 district - May
Delaware 27.6% - 18 total – 3 district – super tuesday
Utah 26.1% - 36 total – 9 district – super tuesday
Colorado 21.2% - 46 total – 21 district – super tuesday
Tennessee 19.9% - 55 total – 27 district – super tuesday
Illinois 19.3% - 70 total – 57 district – super tuesday
Alabama 18% - 48 total – 21 district – super tuesday
Texas 17.9% - 140 total – 96 district - March

Oregon 17.2% - 30 total – 15 district - May
Florida 16.8% - 114 (57 actual) – 75 district ? – FL loses half delegates for early primary

Where does it say that the GOP are trying this? On the Texas GOP website, it shows Ron Paul has already submitted an application - http://www.texasgop.org/site/DocServer/1-7-08_name.pdf?docID...
Those numbers were off by a colum to the right. It shows Tancredo with more votes than Romney. All the numbers match, but in the wrong column. Let's not cry wolf unless there is one.
How does Mr. Bomb Iran come in first. Who are these independant voters?
If Michigan's primary is still on Jan. 15th, then they don't have any Democratic delegates. Half the democrats won't even be on the ballot. If you Michigan people run into anti-war democrats like Obama's supporters, then let them know. Let them know that Dr. Paul will end the war and hopefully we can have a good showing there.
Is it on yet. All I get is a bunch of commercials and no audio. I'm at http://www.ronpaul2008.com/snippets/127/manchester-townhall/ , but nothing.
Hey, I'm not in LA but I noticed there are paperwork requirements to be a delegate and a deadline of Jan 10th. Go to http://lagop.com/ and it's all on the front page. Make sure LA folks know.
Figured it out.
I'm looking at CNN and it shows Obama won with 940 votes (2,500 total votes cast). What am I missing? http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/state/#IA
It looks like to me that Paul crushed all the Dems with over 11k votes.
Liberty has 61.29% with 15,822 votes, but CNN has 95% with 115,214 votes. What does the difference mean? Is Liberty an exit poll, because it looks like they won't have a final total.
