Hey everyone,

apparently if we dont hurry and get baldwin the 74,000 signatures they need in tx only obama/clinton or mccain will be in the general election.

We must download the petition at:


**note the date is not may 1st for the deadline. But 75 days after March 4th or the latest by election code is the 2nd monday in May or may 7-12th.

The texas laws apparently only allow the independent signature collection at this point. It is too late for LP to enter any one on the ballot for president.

With their convention so late at the end of may they will not be able to get access.

We must put a real alternative on the ballot this election.

Please print the petitions, and go to every event and location you can to find people that didnt vote this primary.

Also donate as soon as possible to their ballot access fund to hire professional signature groups to assist.

Our goal for the movement=74,000 signatures in Texas before May 7-12th.

We need the entire paul movement to donate to this cause and every supporter that was part of operation live free or die and 30 days to iowa to get to texas now.

you should get this to all the large meetups in Texas. Baldwin is considered a surrogate for Paul--and im sure they'd love to help.

^^^ Yes, do that, certainly.

Petitioning the general public can be a lot of fun, too. Go to universities, outdoor events, concerts, state fairs, county fairs, etc etc and just walk around and ask people to sign it. Or get a booth or table and talk to people as they pass by.

It's fun and easy. If you have brochures or pamphlets you can hand them out to people after they sign it, or if they seem interested in Baldwin or the CP.

Someone please pass this to TX meetups!
Even if you dont agree with the CP, don't you want more choices than the Rs and Ds in some races? The LP isnt coveringall ofthe races right now.
