Ron Paul revolution at the Indiana GOP Convention?

Is there going to be a Ron Paul revolution at the Indiana GOP Convention? Apparently, someone thinks so.

Kristen got a call yesterday from 219-000-0000. The caller asked specifically for her (although we are both delegates to the convention) and identified the survey as one specifically for Indiana delegates to state convention. They asked three questions:

1. Do you think that the US should pull out of the War in Iraq?

2. What is your view of the Patriot Act?

3. Who did you support for President?

If I were trying to identify Ron Paul delegates without specifically asking, that would be how I would do it. State Party has been musing about the large numbers of Paulistinians who contacted state party about running for delegate this year. I've heard numbers as high as 200 identified Paul delegates who made it through on the May ballot.

After the Nevada fiasco, is state party trying to make sure the Paulistinians don't create a riot? With the AG race sucking everyone's attention, is there a possibility that Ron Paul's delegates are organizing themselves quietly via this phone survey?

I received the same call and asked who they were calling on behalf of. I was told John McCain. That seemed to make sense to me as the questions were worded in support of the Iraq War and the Patriot Act.

I was called and asked all those questions too and was told it was a poll conducted by the John McCain campaign. I proudly told them that I voted for Ron Paul. Although I didn't attend any of the meetings, I do know that Ron Paul organizers hosted meetings specifically for the purpose of teaching the RP delegates about the Roberts Rules of Order. It will be interesting to see if there's going to be a Revolution.
