Become a Delegate if you want Ron Paul as President

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.

How Do I Become a Delegate? by Anson Chi Last Update: 09/23/07

Approved by the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign Committee: Jeff Greenspan, Regional Coordinator.

NOTE: Please do not inundate Jeff Greenspan with emails or phone calls. Follow the steps below for details on how to become a delegate.

1) Register to vote (Register as a Republican if you live in a closed primary state such as New York.)

Please register today so you can vote in your state Primary.

2) Become a member of the Republican Party in your state:

3) The delegate process typically starts at your local precinct, then goes on to your county / senatorial district, then to your state primary and finally, the Republican National Convention. Click here to see your state's delegate process to the RNC (Republican National Convention)

4) The 2008 Primary Process

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.

It's critical that we become delegates or all our hard work will be in vain.Become a delegate and we'll get to hear Dr. Ron Paul giving his Inaugural Address in 2009.
