I received this via e-mail earlier this afternoon. Supporters of Ron Paul are attempting to hijack the GOP convention:
Many Ron Paul supporters across Georgia have been working hard to elect Ron Paul supporters as delegates to the Republican National Convention. We have had success in most of the large counties (over 80,000 population) that selected their precinct delegates on February 16. It appears that we have the majority of the precinct delegates in several of the large counties. With your help, we will be successful in electing Ron Paul supporters to the Republican National Convention. Please commit to attending the following:
Precinct Mass Meeting and County Convention
this Saturday, March 15 at 9 am sharp
8th Congressional District Convention
April 19 at 10 am sharp in Warner Robins, GA
From our February experience in Houston and Bibb counties, all we have to do is SHOW UP! If we are successful at the congressional district level, we will ask for your help in electing even more delegates at the state convention in May. But for now, please commit to attending the meetings listed above.
Ron Paul supporters across the country have been very successful in the delegate process. Ron Paul has the majority of delegates in many states, and in one state we have 70% of the delegates! If the majority of delegates at the Republican National Convention are Ron Paul supporters – we will control the convention!
How does the convention process work? Counties with less than 80,000 population will hold mass precinct meetings at 9 am this Saturday, March 15. Don’t be late because those arriving at 9:01 am are not allowed to participate. I recommend arriving by 8:30. Delegates will be selected to represent each precinct. Usually there are more available slots than there are delegates, so if you just show up you can become a precinct delegate. Following the mass precinct meeting at precisely 10 am (again – don’t be late), all counties large and small will conduct their county convention where county delegates are selected. County delegates will represent your county at the 8th Congressional District Convention and the State Convention. Also, bring friends and vote for each other! The more Ron Paul supporters who show up, the better our chances will be. Strategically, it works better if we don’t advertise our goals or advertise that we are Ron Paul supporters at the county conventions.
I know Ron Paul supporters believe every primary was stolen but…Ron Paul lost. Get it over it. I voted for him in the primary, but I was embarrassed with the campaign he ran. I also found out a lot about the man (or at least things that were done in his name) that I wasn’t previously aware of.
