Before Ron Paul can get elected, he has to be nominated by delegates at the
Republican National Convention which will take place in St. Paul, Minnesota.
September 1-4, 2008.
We have to get elected as delegates to the
convention. Electoral college delegates have to be constitutionalists because
they elect the president by casting their vote.
Those who support Ron
Paul must begin the process now of getting elected as a delegate to the
convention or it's all over and the GOP faithful will get the shadow
government's choice shoved down their throats - again. The power players behind
the scenes will orchestrate the show and the people will be the losers - again.
The same applies with getting nominated as an electoral college delegate because
America got a good lesson in civics during the 2000 pretend election regarding
the popular vote vs the electoral college system.
A word to the wise:
if you present yourself as a supporter of Ron Paul, you will never get elected
as a delegate. Wave the flag, shout power to the GOP, rah, rah, rah, get
elected and then begin your campaign to get Ron Paul nominated. Now, some might
say this type of stealth isn't right. Here's what's not right: back room deals
and big money giving the American people no choice in these elections and anyone
who thinks this isn't how the process has been working for the past century is
in a state of denial.
Get together with your friends or people you know
and plan your strategy now and work to get elected as a delegate. Time is
quickly slipping by, every minute counts.
Several states including FL,
SC and Iowa are planning to move their state Primaries to early December 2007 in
order to prevent Ron Paul from garnering enough support financially and
geographically. GOP Primaries are generally held on EVEN numbered years and it's
not a mere coincidence that changes are being initiated and that Ron Paul just
so happens to be running.
So how do I become a delegate?
foremost, be a member of the Republican Party and register as a Republican if
you live in a closed primary
such as New York. I don't want to be part of them either but
Ron Paul's sacrificing a lot too.

how to be a delegate to the Republican National Convention at your state
(NOT your state party convention); They'll be more than happy to
give you the specifics (provided you don't tell them you're a Ron Paul
supporter). For most states, it starts at your local precinct, then county, then
senatorial district, then state and finally the Rep. National Convention: It's a
long journey. :)
3) The 2008 Primary
In general, it's a step-by-step process in becoming a delegate. For
example, to become a delegate in Texas (open primary state):
Vote in the 2008 Texas State Primary Election (March 4) and you are then
eligible to be a delegate to your precinct. Your first convention will take
place at your precinct's election day polling place within two hours after the
polls close at 7:00 p.m. Most of these "precinct conventions" are very poorly
attended, and typically there are more delegate/alternate places than people to
fill them, so it's usually easy to get elected as delegate at the precinct
level. WE CAN ORGANIZE AND PLAN for all this in JANUARY with plenty of time. (continued)
It's critical that we become delegates or all our hard work will be in

Become a delegate and we'll get to hear Dr. Ron Paul giving his
Inaugural Address in 2009.
