Wow!  What a good time the Rally for the Republic was.  I arrived on Saturday to do some pre-rally exploring and found the local police-state to be overwhelming, yet friendly.  It was the kind of thing you were warned existed only in evil countries such as the Soviet Union when you were growing up.  Yet here it was, on the streets of Minneapolis in the United States of Amerika.  Cops dressed in military costumes everywhere you looked and in very large numbers.  Creepy.

Monday I ran into libertarian greats such as Angela Keaton and Anthony Gregory. We had lunch and some beers prior to attending the Celebration in Blaine. Good music was heard with Aimee Allen being the highlight of the night with her Ron Paul song. I suspect a good 1,000 – 2,000 were in attendance despite the very odd location. The neocon rag Reason was represented by the human rat himself, David Weigel. He was right in front of me talking to Angela when I wanted to blurt out: “Hey Weigel, are you here to trash Ron Paul again?”. Sure enough: here, here and here.

The after party was held back in Minneapolis at Clubhouse Jäger owned by a Ron Paul supporter. Steve Dore played and hundreds of Ron Paul supporters packed in. I stayed until about 1am hoping Ron Paul would show, but didn’t. I did have the honor of speaking with the founder of the Revolution, Ernie Hancock.  Great guy.  Butler Shaffer was there as well, although I didn’t get a chance to meet him.

All the way from Australia:

I am flying from Australia to the US this Thursday so I can also personally hand in my ballot for Ron Paul (you can see the actual ballot at the bottom of my homepage).

And from Germany:

On Monday, January 7, supporters of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will meet in downtown Jackson, Michigan one week before the January 15 primary election to help spread the message of peace, smaller government, and personal liberty.

The rally centers on the homecoming of Jackson native Robert Douglass, who is returning from Germany to cast his absentee ballot #0001 for Ron Paul that day. Mr. Douglass is flying in from Germany that day to personally hand his ballot to the county clerk, and to rally with his fellow Jackson residents for ten-term Texas Congressman Ron Paul.

On a related note, Ron Paul overwhelmingly wins the vote of the world.

The Real Story in Wyoming

OK, so I have read through your negative threads and will now proceed to tell you the true inside story.

Wyoming did not go nearly so bad as you are making it out to be.

In my county, the Ron Paul delegate got 45.6% of the vote. Rejected by party hacks? Hardly. We stormed the barricades, crashed their party, and almost, *almost*, won it all. Unfortunately, Romney’s guy got 54%. So we made a good show. If we could have switched over 4 Romney people or got 8 more of our people out, we would have had it (you can calculate this, but the result was 37-44). Oh well.

It was probably largely my fault for not doing enough early enough to get everyone registered and jumped throught the hoops back in December. We had several Ron Paul supporters that could not vote because they hadn’t met registration deadlines and this and that, some that came to the caucus this Saturday (for moral support and to see it, man the table, help however they could; they couldn’t vote, due to not doing aforementioned hoop-jumping). Including Wyo_Lars! Thanks Wyo_Lars!! Still, 45% is not exactly haplessly weak. We did well!

Even one delegate from Wyoming would have been major victory. Iowa gave Paul 2 delegates, after a ton of focus, time, campaigning there, millions of dollars spent, etc., and they are a much larger state with millions of people. If little Wyoming with just 1/2 million people could have got 1 delegate for Paul, especially when we’ve had very little attention from the national RP campaign, I would have considered that we pulled our own weight.

Alas, it was not to be for my county.

And finally, I saved the best (or maybe the worst) for last: in Fremont County we also lost… by one vote. One vote.

Ron Paul is a frontrunner, make no mistake. Non-frontrunners don’t get 45% of the vote. We just weren’t very organized. All you meetup people need to realize: you ARE the campaign.

Today is the day for the “Ron Paul Flier Bomb“. The goal:

To blanket all of America with [a flier]. To put up a flier in every laundry facility, every store front, every bulletin board and cork board we can find in America. The goal is for us to get out 100,000 fliers spread out all over America.
