Pres Paul

Ron Paul supporters everywhere may have been prophetically chanting when they yelled "President Paul" as the 2012 presidential candidate not only came out victorious in the Minnesota delegate count but in several other states as well this weekend, according to

Ron Paul, marching to the beat of a different drum by saying he'll cut a trillion his first year in office, turn the lights out on the IRS, and keep countless other promises he can back up with years of consistent voting, has caused hundreds of thousands of Americans to wake up. Those who have joined the throngs throw off their past "sheeple" behavior and begin by doing their internet homework. They march with Paul carrying a torch of liberty and hope toward the red, white and blue aiming to save the dollar and keep the eagle strong in a revolution that surely has left the mainstream media and those not in sync in a quandary.

Despite the mainstream media's BIG misinterpretation and irresponsible reporting last week, when many initially said the good doctor was finished, it was a slam dunk for the grassroots organizers in Minnesota as they took 12 out of 13 delegates in the second part of their nominating process for a total of 32 out of 40 overall between the two-tier event.

As the revolution army marches around the country busy doing what they do best - winning delegates - surely Mitt Romney took notice as the Ron Paul freedom fighters stormed the gates of Mitt's home state of Michigan, winning some there and ensuring Romney could not take all. Paul also won delegates in Vermont.

A Ron Paul tsunami consumed Virginia as he won more than half the delegates for the liberty movement this weekend. In addition, a Republican Congressional District Chair was voted in by the good doctor's people with a whirlwind of county and city chairs won as well.

The wins by passionate liberty-minded delegates led Ron Paul's 2012 National Campaign Manager John Tate to state: “Victories in Minnesota and other states demonstrate that Ron Paul supporters possess the adaptability, organizational muscle, and unmatched enthusiasm required to continue winning delegates in upcoming contests." Tate went on to say, “We’re also pleased to see Ron Paul supporters engaged in party-building to broaden the activist and voting base that will advance Republican majorities for many years to come."

Could it be that Paul's strategy, "It is all about the delegates," is paying off? If the Ron Paul army continues, it sure looks like the good doctor will be a force to be reckoned with in Tampa at the National Convention this coming August.
