    I have never been involved in politics before, so the only thing I have done is donate to the campaign and talk to family members in the US and friends here about Ron Paul. Im pretty well informed about the darkside of US policy and MSM. Most people here don't care much for that info..a lot of zombies here.

    Do they support the war? Find out from local sources there as much as you can about peoples' opinions of issues. Contact the other Ron Paul supporters there to get organized. Many donated to the campaign and need to be contacted.

    Find out all of the rules for the election there, especially for delegates, etc. Look into the costs for ads in the local newspapers. Others on the forum here could help you design and pay for the ads. See if you can set up a PR4RP website. Perhaps the one in Spanish already set up could help.

    I am confused. Puerto Rico can't vote on the US President, yet they can vote on the presidential primaries? Since when has this been the case?

    Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens. They can vote for president.

    Puerto Rican cannot vote for the Preisident of The United States. But we don't pay Federal taxes either. Its a fair trade as far as I'm concerned.

    Puerto Rico is a very different place from the mainland US. I'm going to become more active in coming months with regards to the Revolution in Puerto Rico. The Platform can be tremendously influential down here because of the anti federal government sentiment harbored by the PPD political party and the Independentistas. the Pro Statehood party the PNP coincides with the American Republican Party, so they will come along pretty much just because we fly a republican banner.

    Politics is a cheap affair in PR. Mayoral campaigns are inexpensive, and easy to win because there is not a lot of activism, and the little activism there is is not on par in terms of resourcefulness that is used in American activism.

    The biggest road block is ignorance, there are many people especially in older generations that vote for the same people and the same parties no matter what you tell them, the same reason they go to church every sunday and participate in all the ceremonies and rituals without ever batting an eyelid.

    Like in the US, teenagers and 20 somethings would be our target demographic.

    i tried to pitch PR as the Free State, but its not a state, so it doesn't fly, but one thing to be noted is that for all of the socialist nanny state programs people are addicted to in PR, there are many many instances where freedoms, personal liberty and personal responsibility is the law of the land. people here are simple and have no love for rhetoric or legal jargon. Its still kinda lawless, not as bogged down in frivolous crap as most states are.
