Ron Paul Grassroots Cured My Apathy

Local grassroots efforts are shifting the tide.
The old-school party players who only care about their own positions of influence have harmed the voting public by continually providing bad candidate choices in the past. The voters are waking up, and this is evidence of phenomenal work to stop the continued march toward worse/worser Presidential choices from the Remocrat/Depublicans who have grown to be big-spending liberals.

In this case, this highlight county GOP Chairman's Chet Dow respect for Ron Paul voters. Kudos to Chet Dow for working with newly active members of the Republican party.

Ron Paul wins here where it counts

It appears that solid strategy and a well-organized grassroots campaign put Ron Paul on top at the Whatcom County Republican Party convention this weekend.

While there are no hard figures yet, county GOP Chairman Chet Dow said it appears that Paul received the majority of delegates who will be sent to the summer state convention in Spokane. From there, delegates will be selected for the national convention.


The convention went so long — 9 a.m. to after 11 p.m. Saturday — that Paul supporters dug in their heels, and when others began going home, they stayed and maintained a strong presence.


Dow said he was pleased with how the convention turned out, and he was impressed with the Paul supporters.

“They’re happy. They should be happy,” he said. “They should be proud of what they have accomplished.”
