    Hello Elisha,
    Just want to encourage you to continue this blog…I do read them and appreciate them. I’ve moved recently (October) out of the flood zone (mud zone) in Timberline to Williams. Their is a small group of Tea Partiers here, but once I discovered them and attended one meeting, the holidays was upon us and nothing happening right now. In 08, I changed my voter registration from ‘unaffiliated’ to Republican to vote for Ron Paul, in last mid-terms, I changed to ‘Libertarian’. Guess, I’ll have to change back to Republican in 12 if we can convince Dr. Paul to run again.

    Thanks so much Brenda. If Ron Paul does run in 2012 I plan to work on his campaign in the Northern Arizona area. I think we learned a lot last time around and will be much more effective if he runs again. If he decides not to run, hopefully an incredible liberty candidate steps up. Thanks again for the kind words.

    Elisha,

    Just found your blog. I’m fairly new to the Ron Paul campaign…

    The thought occurred to me this morning that it might be a good idea to pressure AZ media to focus on Maine caucus “irregularities”.

    I was trying to figure out how I could help the campaign and considered phone calls and door to door canvassing. But then, like I said, the thought came to me to pressure the AZ media into covering what happened/is happening in main w/ 15 to 16 percent of the vote not counted and doesn’t look like it will be counted…

    Seems like a pretty big story to me and a good way to welcome the Ron Paul campaign to our state…and keep the momentum going while reaching a larger audience.

    What are your thoughts?

    Hi Robert,

    I agree that the media should be contacted. Unfortunately, I doubt the mainstream media will cover the story but it’s certainly worth a try.

    If you live in Arizona, the best thing you can do by far is knock on Republican doors with Ron Paul literature. Canvassing is statistically the best way to win elections.

    If you’re on Facebook, please consider joining the Flagstaff Ron Paul 2012 page for opportunities to get involved:

    Hello

    What is the position of the Tea Party members concerning ending this “Corporations are People”, nonsense? Ending the ruling that says Corporations are people and as such have the same first Amendment rights that you and I do. This gives every multinational corporations the Freedom of speech, and since $ has been determined to be speech, these corporations, many run by foreign nationals, can dump billions to benefit certain candidates that they KNOW will protect their interest – Not Ours!

    Questions:

    Do multi-national Corporations have “We the People’s” best interest at heart?
    When a multi-national corporations are faced with a decision that pits what best for We the People against Higher Profits, which choice will win out?
    If the 81% of us who want the money out of politics band together in a battle for our Country & our Democracy we can end this era of corporate rule. The easiest way to do this is by way of a Constitutional Convention. Already cities & states around the country are already passing resolutions, states that have the initiative process are getting ready to put this on the ballot.

    If tea party members are against the corruptive influence of money in politics, then are they willing to either start a petition or signing one that says just that. This is an example of one of many petition text:

    “We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, and direct that our representatives promptly call for a Constitutional Convention for the purpose of amending our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech; & that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.”

    Is this something that tea party members can get behind?

    Let’s start the process of taking our Country & our Government back.

    Regards,

    Frank

    Elisha,
    Could you do another bit about yourself? Affiliations, groups, beliefs etc. It would be great to get to know you better. Maybe a full bio?

    Elisha – Can you please send me your email address. I would like to send you a tongue in cheek analysis of America since Obama reclaimed the Presidency. I think you will enjoy it and hope you might post it to your blog. Thanks. AGR

    Elisha,

    Are you aware of any Libertarian meet-up groups in the area? I tried the “Freethinkers” group but found myself disgusted with the republican bashing the democrat loving commentary, as if either party has done a real good job. They were not very good at free thinking. I would like to be able to hold a decent conversation with some intelligent, like-minded folks. Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.
