    I really wish more of our people down here were more discrete in what they self reported.

    They were discrete. Romney spent $1M to a consulting firm to investigate everyone who signed up to be a national delegate.

    Message from the AZ convention:

    All delegates and alternates must stay until meeting adjourns " sine die" or they can reverse votes.

We have nothing to fear that should cause us to forget or relinquish our rights as free men and women.

    Is there a link to that? What was published and was it a newspaper or some Republican rag? The GOP establishment did that to us in 2008 at the Missouri State Convention.

    Various Romney and Ron Paul supporters speaking.

    When Romney supporters speak, the BooooS definitely have it!

    So I'm confused, watching the live stream it says they still have to credential delegates? It seems Romney has the numbers at the AZ convention but not all of them are actually delegates?
    Los Angeles County Republican Party (the largest GOP central committee in the nation)
    -57% of the executive board is liberty
    -43% of the executive committee is liberty
    -40% of the central committee is liberty

    Getting involved at the local level is the most important thing you can do to WIN

    be ACTIVE, be EFFECTIVE, be ORGANIZED, be STRATEGIC, be VICTORIOUS.

    To be fair, these are States where we pulled in..what...9% or less of the vote? I'd say we put on a pretty good show. I just wish we weren't so rude about it.

    From what I gathered, there are a lot of (legal) citizens that are fed up with AZ's current immigration problems. Which would lead me to believe that they're intelligent enough to see Ron Paul would help them secure the boarder. If I lived there that would be my number #1 concern anyway.

    They have to reprint the ballots at the #AZGOP convention. asterisks were by names of #Romney endorsed people. Not enough paper. #RonPaul

    a Romney bot and an insulting one at that, on twitter tweeted this link which if a true statute says all are bound on first ballot unless released for guy at top of vote in AZ http://t.co/4ama8jGs that is a STATUTE not a rule, note.

    I guess it depends on who the boarder is, whether you want to "secure" him/her or not. Secure from what? Is it someone who came across the border illegally?

    I wish az had more updates. I can't tell from tweets if things are going good or bad

    By one guy tweeting and warning us not to break the law and unbind delegates (which is legislation not a rule) it sounds as if he was concerned we had enough strength to do so. I hope he is right about that.
