You got that Creek. Paul is known for paying people to show up and vote. I guess Huntsman also is following that pattern.
Marsha Backburn seems to know where we should be going, but the crowd wasn't too much into her.
The loudest I heard the crowd was when Lt Col Steve Russel gave his speech. It was so loud in the assembly I opened the door and everyone was standing....He'll be the next Allen West. Why Florida is getting all the good ones?
Political “Juggalos” lol
I think they counted the Huntsman Chemical Shareholder’s votes.
Last year, the Mormons won, this year, Ron Paul beat the Mormons.
Where you there for Perry’s speech. If so how did he do?
Steve Russell is a Oklahoma State Senator.
They do spend their own money, or fellow supporters help them out with “chip-ins”. It’s an established procedure.
People say “I want to go, I need money” and supporters send it to them.
My cutoff time was 230pm, so I left. I will be severly heartbroken if she does show up this evening.
I guess you’re saying that young Republicans should be ignored. Perhaps they should all vote Democrat?
Perry was in the hallway passing by right before I left.
Every single Republican event sucks because Ron Paul always wins? Is that what you’re saying?
What you won’t think about is that Ron Paul is well organized and none of the other candidates have any organization at all.
These straw polls are tests of organization, they aren’t popularity contests. Ron Paul has the organization.
And organization matters.
My bad. When I heard him say something about backing up Allen West, I assumed he was from Fla.
I guess youre saying that young Republicans should be ignored. Perhaps they should all vote Democrat?
Nope not at all. I’m justing saying they get help either via Paul’s funding or otherwise as opposed to self financing. Paul works this group well but in the end they can’t put him anywhere in the hunt for the win at crunch time. Just the way the primary mess works out. You’d think other candidates would tap into this but they don’t.
On economics ron paul is second to none.
Add the Mormons - Huntsman and Romney - and you get 456
Ron Paul got over 600
Last time, the Mormons won, this time Ron Paul won.
OK, so Huntsman has three times the support of Romney, Palin and Pawlenty combined? Yeah, I believe that.
Paul had 438 votes in 2010. Only one vote behind Romney at 439. For bought and paid for votes that’s not bad.
Huntsman votes = Romney tickets he bought a while ago and decided not to use.
Both Liberal Mormons.
