Today here in AZ, I attended the GOP state convention. We Ron Paul supporters by far outnumbered all others. There were 3 people at the Newt table. It was nice to hold my Ron Paul sign proudly as establishment politicians like Trent Franks, Russell Pierce, and Joe Arpaio walked by us. In the end, Ron Paul won the straw poll handily. They tried to pull a fast one and wrap up the convention without announcing the winner, and in the end announced it with the mic off.


Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul won the Arizona Republican Party straw poll Saturday, according to the official straw poll website of the Arizona Republican Party. Although the Arizona Republican presidential primary is not scheduled to take place until February 28th, the results of the Arizona Republican party straw poll suggest that Mr. Paul has an active community of supporters in the Grand Canyon State.

It was kind of amusing, after that interview with Jack Welch and the GOP establishment's realization that without Ron Paul supporters they don't stand a chance, all the establishment goons that kept coming up to us to tell us how much they admire our enthusiasm and to try and convince us the main goal is getting Obama out. Basically trying to say there's no way our guy will win the nomination, but we should support whatever candidate the GOP nominates. Of course, I told them that is not my main goal, my goal is to restore liberty and a Constitutional government, and that I will not be voting for their candidate, only Ron Paul. Then I told them I'm an independent who voted for Obama last time, and switched to Republican only to vote Ron Paul in the primary, then I'm switching back. I told them if their main goal is to get Obama out of office, they better get with the winning team. I'd rather see Obama re-elected than Romney or Gingrich.

The casual voter does not care about straw polls. I would be surprised if Mr. Paul won the primary.

You're always bashing AZ, why don't you move if you hate it here so much? Or, try and change it for the better?

It's Dr. Paul, and I wouldn't be surprised at all. I've been getting a lot of positive feedback from people all over, even casual voters who aren't passionate about Ron Paul but say he's the most honest up there.

Yeah - - well - - better then bashing what you don't know and don't live with every day.

I can say everyone who lives in the South is a bible thumping whatever. But I don't know that - - because I don't live there.

I can be like all the Christians bashing Muslims - - - who haven't a clue.

I live here. I can have an opinion. A real opinion.

Right, but it doesn't make sense to stay somewhere that you're miserable. I was born here, I love AZ. The mountains, the desert, etc. Sure, there's some ignorant, hateful people here, but there's also good people. I hope your situation allows you to move some day, and find a place where you're happy.

Who said I was miserable. I'm in SW AZ - - and I love it. There is just something special about the energy of the geographics. Been here for 20 years. The "immigrants" are not just from the south - - many are from CA. The "good old boys" are a dying breed. Parts of AZ you could transplant to parts of TX and no one would know the difference.

Oh - and I also live in Redondo Beach CA - - its a bit complicated.

Where in AZ does matter.

Phoenix is like Los Angeles. We here in the SW laugh at Phoenix representing AZ.

Unfortunately.. it doesn't translate to the real vote as the people that vote for the establishment candidates don't care enough to really support a candidate. They just show up in mass, vote, and forget it. Still it's good to do because it does get reported and hopefully turns on a few voters.

I'm with you. I was a Dem, that switched to GOP for Paul, and will be an indie after our primary.

I would rather have Obama again than Romney and especially Newt. They need to realize that if the don't get Paul in office the GOP stands no chance. Ex Dems, Indies, and Paul supporters aren't going to vote for Newt or Mitt. They keep saying Paul doesn't stand a chance, but he is the only one that stands a chance of beating Obama because all the GOP will vote for him and he has the thousand of aforementioned temp GOP members that only he can get.

27jd, I think the primaries on the West Coast are gonna yield much different results for Ron Paul than he's experienced in the East. We are ready over here in Cali for Dr. Paul......we are ready......

RON PAUL 2012!

I haven't seen any polls for Paul there. Do you really think he would have a chance in Cali? That would be a game changer for sure.

As long as there are no Israeli Defense firms counting the votes and Diabold voting machines he always will win.. not to mention tons of votes "missing" in Iowa and dead people voting in SC.

With every fiber in my being I want him to win, I'm just afraid that the people who can plan false flags can rig votes too.. Just look at Florida and ask Al Gore how that works.

The whole reason why Jeb Bush is not endorsing anyone is because he knows if a Republican wins he will not be able to run vs him in 2016.. He knows his daddy will try and sabatoge Dr. Paul and watch Romney and Newt self implode so Obama wins... Hell Jeb and Poppy were just at the White House..www.politico.com...

Everyone I know here in Cali supports Ron Paul. I have a huge family too and work for the 2nd largest communications company in the US. I see signs everywhere for him here in central California, more than any other candidate 100 fold.. there were a lot in '08 also.

Funny thing is I know our state is a open primary but I registered Republican few months ago just to make sure they dont try and pull a fast one.. I did it while renewing my Drivers License at the DMV.. I got the voting info back and they misspelled my name .. I mean come on they got the info from the DMV .. Now I'm fighting with them to get it fixed .. always got to be something man =/

I live in Arizona also and I find it is a great place to live. Usually in my rural area the only people who don't like it and complain all the time keep trying to change it are the liberal city folks who move here from California and want to make this place like where they were.

Which makes no sense to me. If you hated it where you were and then move why would they want the new place to be like the old one?!?!?

I do live up in central AZ. though in the rural mountainous area, not the big city.

Love it or leave it...... quit trying to change it
