I am a delegate in Southern MN; I was at the CD1 convention this past Saturday (all ~ 18 hours of it ;-). People, the change IS happening. The media
is NOT reporting the truth; for our congressional district we elected 2 of 3 delegates (and 2 of 3 alternates) that are avid Ron Paul supporters. This
happened ALL across the state (20 of 24 overall total delegates with the State convention in 3 weeks that will send 13 delegates).
How did we do this? We planned and stood together; we all new who to vote for and when to do it. The room was FULL of Ron Paul supporters. I didn't
see a single Romney t-shirt, sign, or flier about him. Approx. 20 people ran to be a National Delegate. Of which 8 - 10 delcared they were Paul
The republican party is changing; and I think they know it. The shift is happening and I think they know they can't really do anything about it. When
at the convention I was asked by an older gentleman "Who do you support for President?" I calmy responded "Ron Paul". He does a double take and
responds "Ohh, you don't look like a Ron Paul supporter". Young and old the room was dominated with the actual true change that people want. Romney
is nothing but the same, and they know it.
Even if this election doesn't culminate in a Ron Paul nomination; we are still here and we will keep changing the overall thinking of the Republican
party. We are not the "crazy Ron Paul people hiding in the weeds". We are getting invloved; running for (and winning) local elected positions.
Running for (and winning) important positions within the Republican party. It may not happen with a quick "bang" but we are changing the party. The
"old guard" knows it and will either accept it and change quickly or die off slowly and we will take over with a voice of reason and get back to
what our Founding fathers and the Constitution is about; Liberty.
I made a decision this past December to get off the couch and make a difference; quit complaining. So I did; and I am going to make a difference.
Along with the other thousands, tens of thousands, and millions of people who are sick and tired of being told what to do by our government. It is
here and it is coming......
