That's a lot of "radicals" to round up, ain't it?

Where'd you get that number? Sounds right, it's just that would I like a place to get this as it updates. :)

My count is only up to 300,000+ right now, but there are a lot of votes still to count in California....

We MUST round us up.

Let's all show up to the Republican National Convention in September!

An impressive number since Paul got, what, 490k in the general back in '88?

That's a lot of people waking up!

And that's only the ones who voted for Paul, how many others are "awake" but want to "vote for the winner".

Let's get them fully awake, get more to wake up and push the message!

So, who wants to try the Free State Project again. This time maybe we could agree to move someone warm and hospitable. Perhaps also not the we-love-century-long-wars granite state, NH.

Better make it Texas because that's the place we will NEED a win to have any shot at a successful brokered convention. I think the Paul campaign needs to get back down there pronto, and stay there.....

I'm from South Florida, but I think we should target the state's panhandle and try to make a new state out of it. :)

500,000 - that looks good - so many people who understand what is good!

when you look at it like this... even if we didnt get that large a percentage of the votes as we had liked, 500,000 people is A LOT. considering they tried to write this campaign off as a few loyals manipulating internet polls. All this without much virtually no positive coverage in the MSM, save for a few unbiased articled over a period of several months. Im sure the number of supporters is much larger than this. I am still in high school and a number of my peers understand the importance of the message. the ideas that we are so thankful that ron paul supports and can bring to a nationwide audience are growing in themselves.

We already have strong support in Louisiana. I would just recommend finding a depiction of the hypothetical coastline giving an X rise in sea level.

Free State Project isn't about moving to some place hospitable. It is about moving to the best state that we can influence the local elections which is New Hampshire.

I'm thinking maybe Nevada.

@literatim: I know, I signed up for it. What I am suggesting is that the original pledge/mission failed, and now, years later, we have good data that suggest a significant number of people (probably > 1M) support a platform of limited government and freedom.

That is, out of the pool of Ron Paul supporters we could probably round up 20,000 people who would pledge to move at that threshold, and it would help for it to be a place that doesn't have hellacious winters. We also now have data on what states might be prime targets. NH didn't live up to its reputation for RP's campaign. NV, LA, MT would all be better options just from the perspective of % freedom activists in the population.

I agreed to move to NH given a certain set of conditions, but I am young, single, and unencumbered and can move basically anywhere. Others might need a little more motivation, or at least fewer mitigating factors.

Also, I do suppose that the FSP early settlers might be doing a great job with local politics, and that their political beliefs didn't overlap enough with RP's to get the vote. I can see that Libertarianism isn't completely congruent with Ron Paul's platform. (I don't want to discount the great work that you and other porcupines might be doing in NH)

whats the total of all the early states? a Independent run sounds better and better everyday.

We just have to wait for Obama to lose to Hillary. Mccain/Hillary here we come.

What we NEED to do is think long term and start a LIBERTY BABY project. Can anyone say a Ron Paul dating service that has the goal of quadrupling the population of Ron Paul voters in about 30 years simply through "natural" processes? :rolleyes:

Man I just came from Nevada, the place is corrupt as hell. That is why Ron Paul's message was heard there well.

My mother just told me that my stepfather voted for Ron Paul. I was stunned. I've been trying to talk him into free markets and the constitution for 20 years.

Come to northern Maine. Ron Paul swept here. Cheapest real estate in America too!

Bought my 4-BR, 2-BA house on .78 acres for $33,700 back in '96. Would probably have to pay $56,000 for it now, but still....

Nope I'm saying when you speak to a population that has a corrupt system, and you talk about freedom they understand.

With regard to the Liberty Babies project, perhaps I should reiterate the part of my last message where I stated my bachelorhood.

Great idea :D

Is anyone capturing and organizing these voters for the future? Or even capturing the meetup people? I'm far more concerned about what we've built falling apart than losing this particular go round. IN that sense, seeing these vote totals is very encouraging.

Yup, the heart of the Bible belt has yet to cast their vote! GO VA! GO KY!

By the way, if you Virginians need some help, I've got family right across the border and we have strong Wise Co. Connections!
