I was at the Snohomish county caucus at Olivia Parks Elementary.The whole gymnasium was mostly full, as all tables had buts in seats, no empty tables.
No one was turned away either. I saw nothing but Ron Paul signs and banners hung up also. Like he was the home team or something. There was a Huge
Ron-abego in the parking lot also. Custom home made, dude doesn't get paid to ride in that thing he says.
At our table we had three people show for our district, one for another, and four show for another. Two of us chose Ron and are Delegates. The solo
guy was for Ron, thus auto delegate. The four at the end had Ron gear and talked "Ron", I'm just assuming they might have chose Ron. Straw poll was
first, and gathered fast. Nothing seemed really practiced at all, very amateur, but not chaotic either. Not allot of conversation during the whole
thing either. Lots of first time caucus goers I think, me included. There was definitely a feeling of being rushed and the chair was using lots of
"This shouldn't take long", "No reason we can't be out of here by 11:30", "Just hand in the envelopes and your free to go", "Be eating lunch in no
time"... When the envelope collector came for the Precinct Caucus Delegate Report of chosen Delegates and alternates, I noticed none of the collected
envelopes were sealed. The Delegate forms are longer than the envelope by an inch or so, and nobody was folding them to make them fit. So no sealed
envelope for Delegate reporting. The opinion surveys are also in there along with whatever cash or check donations also given. Ours was the only
sealed one. Not sure if that is just the way its done or not. Just seemed weird. Allot of people just really confused on how the whole thing thing is
supposed to go. Only happens once every four years, so much practice I guess. I am not going to say fraud, or the elite are blocking him, or
conspiracy as I have no proof to back that up. It just really felt 25% for Snohomish is way off target. Or maybe I just want it to be. Or maybe the
media has programed me to think he is being ignored. IDK. It was a new experience and I feel like I did what I could. Looking forward to the next
delegate voting at county level on the 31st.
OH, here is pic. It happened. Thanks for reading.
