As I said in the Missouri forum, it didn't go so well here in Platte County. The chairman realized there was a good showing of Ron Paul people and he apparently started a last minute phone tree to get more of his people there. The doors were kept open after the scheduled ten o'clock start. We ended up being outnumbered by around 7 people. Their slate consisted of 34 delegates and 34 alternates but most of those delegates were not even at the caucus! We only got 2 amendments passed before the majority voted to close the floor to anymore proposals.
How did he know who was an RP supporter?

In my opinion, the RP people were not very well organized in my county. We could have had a much better turnout here.
I was at the Meramec Township caucus in St. Louis County. There were 18 delegates and 18 alternates to the CD and to the State convention up for grabs. From the entire township, and Meramec Township is huge, only 33 people attended the caucus. Sadly, 10 Ron Paul supporters who said they would be there didn't show up, and as a result, we were out-numbered - 14 Ron Paul supporters to 19 for the other side.
That's the bad news. The good news is we still wound up with 9 delegates and 9alternates to the State Convention, including my daughter, my son, my niece and me!
I know Missouri River Township elected 12 (out of 18) RP delegates and alternates to the CD and State convention.
Greene County won 72 out of 112 delegates to both the CD and State conventions....and as we speak, there's fireworks in Jackson County!

No candidate names were ever mentioned at our caucus. We all dressed like normal people. One notable thing we did, which I think was important, was to elect a new chairman. He didn't want to take the position away from the existing chairman (and old woman who's been running the caucuses for at least 20 years) but someone nominated him and he was voted in. We also chose a Ron Paul person as secretary.
We've got them on the run it looks like. Hopefully we can route them even further in Missouri.
Yeah, see, this was county- they know who you are now! I will be looking forward to your stated numbers for the Ron Paul Delegates that sent on to State from your 5:1 numbers.

Look, they will have private investigators sitting in parking lots taking pictures or videos of everyone in their cars. You get up, and run your mouth as a RP Delegate, and now they know a RP face, they tie your face to the car you got out of, now they know your name.
I will bet, you will come back here after State (if you have the guts to do so) and say, "Wow, the McPain people somehow got rid of almost all of our Delegates! How did this happen?"
They are using the counties to identify you as Ron Paul Delegates, so you can be targeted and removed at state,
What part of this is hard to understand?
Guys, be very careful! I agree with signzit and you must be very, very cautious. They are going against anti-war, pro-Constitution organizations, candidates, etc. We love this country so much that we're not going to allow them to rot our country from the inside!

They can't just get rid of you from the state convention once you've been chosen at the county convention. Who has been chosen, will go to the state convention unless they forget or something. Other delegates can't just replace you.
