So I went to vote here in Indiana today, and when I got there it was dead. one other voter was there voting. This was around 12:15pm which would
normally be a hopping time for voting.
Here is what I noticed:
The only people there were a couple city people running, and a few people handing out fliers with the words:
Vote for the
and Liberty Slate.
Delegates for the Indiana GOP Convention.
On the backside was the name of all of the area delegates who are pretty much Ron Paul supporters, though it didn't say anything about Ron Paul on the
Under that was a list of 6 people from my district they wanted me to vote for.
When I got to the voting booth, I chose my candidate for President, then went through the other elections (local, State), and finally I got to the
area where I choose the Delegates for my district.
Of course I had no Idea who was who, and had no clue what they stood for, but what I did have was this flier which told me exactly which 6 people to
Another interesting note is that it seems the voters who did show up were young Ron Paul supporters, and that most of the republican Voters seem to
think it is over and won't even bother voting. This is good, as long as the Ron Paul supporters actually show up in numbers.
I don't think Ron Paul will win the Indiana Primary, but I do think he will get the delegates. I live in one of the college towns, so naturally we
would see more RP supporters, but sadly most of Indiana are blind as a bat when it comes to issues and will just vote for whom ever the people in
their church is voting for.
Romney and the Media had better start paying attention though, because they seem to be giving the Ron Paul camp an advantage, since his (Ron Paul)
supporters are the only ones that don't see this as over. The thinking of "why vote if the news says it's already decided" will only hurt his
campaign. He's not even trying any more, and neither are his "people".
