Thread: How to Win the Convention- REAL REVOLUTION

    Default How to Win the Convention- REAL REVOLUTION

    I am a Republican and am within the party.

    I have seen the belly of the beast.

    Many of us in the party are angry about what has happened. We know the game.

    Romney's people will never do it. Giuliani's people will never do it. They are beholden to the party. Only you can and will.

    Your campaign has been taken off course. Whether you realize it or not, your opportunity to win the nomination is now greater than ever. Take hold of the reigns.

    Steady mind and steady planning.

    Huckabee is your saving grace for he will drive the wedge within the party line. Do not be sidetracked. Do not be despondent. Do not be afraid.

    Win.

    The focus now, should be to receive delegate votes at the Convention. Ideally, the RPHQs should be working with you to bring delegates on board. They probably are not doing this so it is up to you.

    It is the delegates and only the delegates that will determine the winner of the Republican nomination. McCain and Huckabee's campaign know this and they are working in this direction. You should be too.

    Unbound delegates may vote for whom they like.

    Bound delegates may hope for a brokered convention, or they may choose to go in opposition of party rules and vote for the candidate of their choice.

    One thing is for sure. You will never be able to vote for RP if you are not there as a delegate.

    Does a Revolution wilt away at the first sign of defeat? No.

    YOU are your only hope for the future. This is your opportunity to win and only RP supporters have the fortitude to do it. This should be the direction you work in. It is not over.

    Think.
    Plan.
    Organize.
    Act.
    Win!

    Good luck.

    Hope I don't sound like a broken record, but want to emphasize that by sending all supporters we can to both state and national convention, *even* if Paul can't win the nomination, we can effectively bind the nominee and party to Paul's message and thus he wins and make it easier for future Ron Paul Republicans to compete in next election year.

    So, press on, regardless of how many states McCain wins, regardless of whether Huckabee has a hotline to God to divinely inspire him, no matter what, we *will* win if we do our homework, read the rules, play the game!

    I love the sound of victory. It is like a song to my ears.

    I am hoping that you have lurked here long enough to know the kind of cat-house it can be. Intelligent individualists from across the political spectrum can be a rowdy lot. Add to that the establishment shills, common trolls, and an administartive directive to maximize free speech, ...

    Are you aware of the recent "billionaire episode"? Me thinks people will be treating your post with a some skepticism when it starts getting out. The mysteriousness and all. For certain it is a very encouraging post. Have you posted it elsewhere, or just here?

    I am thinking of moving it to a more active area, the board is moving quick today.

    Always good to have more friends and if there is anything we can do to help, feel free to PM me.

    Now is when the Revolution begins.


    Step One
    Think


    Did anyone really believe that sign waving and flyering would break the GOP machine and win the primary? Did you think that was all there was?

    What it did was accomplish something bigger than you may realize. A connected network of spirited and dedicated RP supporters. No other campaign has this. In fact, every other campaign works against having that in order to keep control and direct campaign efforts in the direction they want.

    Yours is unique. Use it to your advantage.

    Set the mission: Win the RNC Convention in St. Paul, Minneapolis for Ron Paul.

    This will only be accomplished by delegates.

    There are three types of people that are on board with this mission.

    • People who want Ron Paul to win.
    • People who will work against the McCain vote.
    • Democratic moles. Yes, they do exist.


    Three types of delegates, all with one objective.

    You must become involved with the Republican Committee in your County or Municipality.

    You must become a delegate.

    To win the Revolution, the troops must be at the site of the battle.

    The Battle will be fought in St. Paul, Minneapolis. September 1-4, 2008.

    You need to be inside fighting, not outside wishing, watching and waving signs.

    Find the RNC in your state.

    Be a broken record because I don't think people realize how much of an influence we can have on the republican party platform. That in and of itself is HUGE! And besides, in the words of the great Yogi Berra, "it ain't over 'till it's over".
    If God himself got off his throne, descended from the heavens, trumpetted at my door, and announced that I was wasting my time trying to get Ron Paul into the Whitehouse, I would thank him for his concern and ask him to leave me to my business.

    No.

    They're lining up the troops.

    Ron Paul hasn't withdrawn from the campaign and neither should anyone else.

    Now's the time to plan.

    Only one thing gets the nomination. Delegate votes.

    That's the fact.

    Stay on course.

    Are you ready?

    So I take it the DC Mega Rally is a good idea, for building additional momentum, as long as remaining states do not lose their focus from winning delegates.

    Speaking of delegates, are you aware what has been going on in Louisiana

    knowing we need delegates is one thing, and that has been trumpeted by us and hq for a long while now.

    1. HOW does the regular layperson BECOME A DELEGATE?
    a. What states are open to us?
    1. For instance, I am one in Cali - but I am not free to vote because my country/district didn't win.

    2. What states are we lacking in?

    I think our troops need a litttle more direction.

    Ask yourself WHY you aren't permitted to vote as you please. When you figure that out, you'll figure out that we can easily take this nomination as long as we get our delegates into the place. Who enforces the vote? Your state's GOP. The state GOP isn't at the convention, though.

    People need to realize that the "rules" really are breakable in this case. I'm sure we'll all figure it out / be told about it as the convention gets closer.

    Each state Republican Committee runs autonomously from the National Republican Committee.

    This means that each state GOP Committee makes their own rules. California will be different from Texas will be different from New York. Everyone must become familiar with the rules in their own state.

    The recent primaries have given allocations of delegates to candidates. There is no guarantee that the delegates will actually vote for the candidate that won their state. Various rules apply to different states.

    As an example:
    Some states that have had their primaries will now choose their delegates. If you want to become a delegate, you will get the petition for delegate from you state party or Board of Elections, get your required number of signatures and then be placed on the ballot for an upcoming Republican Primary where you will be voted in as a delegate.

    **Each state varies on how the selection of delegates is conducted. You must become familiar with the rules in your state.**

    Contact your state GOP to get the rules in your state. It may even be on the state GOP website.

    I just voted at the Michigan state convention. Out of 14 or 16 (I forget) delegates, 2 were committed to McCain, 2 for Huckabee. The rest were uncommitted. However, 1 uncommitted was a Romney, and 1 other uncommitted person introduced Mrs. Huckabee before her speech (which probably didn't please the the Republican convention who have been pushing McCain).

    I did the math and voted for no to all of them. It was an all or nothing vote. However, I was in the minority, so they are all going.

    This was my first foray into this Republican convention. Getting involved in the Republican party from the inside takes dedication and LOTS of ass kissing for a long time. Getting to know the "regulars" takes years. If I was on the inside, I probably would know which way the uncommitted people were going to vote. For me, it was a great learning experience. I'm just not the one to deal with another layer of beauracracy.

    From what I understand, all delegates are created equal.

    We had our county mass precinct meetings today down here in GA. Got lots of RP delegates in Cobb County!
