You paid $200,000 for this “Cultural Transformation” training of the USDA

In 2011 and 2012, the USDA (your tax money) paid Samuel Betances, self-described “citizen of the world,” nearly $200,000 to lead a “cultural transformation” program. The diversity event is apparently part of what President Obama’s USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack described in a memo as a “new era of Civil Rights” and “a broader effort towards cultural transformation at USDA.” (Trust me, you must see this video leaked to Judicial Watch!)

I want you to say that America was founded by outsiders – say that – who are today’s insiders, who are very nervous about today’s outsiders…I want you to say, ‘The pilgrims were illegal aliens.’ Say, ‘The pilgrims never gave their passports to the Indians.’

Ron Paul Republican Iowa Caucus Training

There are 1774 different Iowa Caucus meetings that will occur at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, January 3rd 2012. It’s a straightforward process, but Ron Paul supporters should share and familiarize themselves with the key points of this process. This will ensure an even greater impact on the night of the caucus.

Presentation by Jason Glass, Iowa grassroots volunteer.

You can find your caucus location here at the Iowa Secretary of State website.

If possible, arrive by 6:15 p.m.

Who can vote?

Any individual who resides in the local precinct can vote in the Caucus. If you’re not currently registered to vote, you can register at the Caucus location – but please be sure to arrive an additional 30 minutes early if you need to register.

Please note you must bring a valid federal ID. And don’t forget to bring as many friends, family members, and neighbors as possible with you to the Caucus to vote for Ron Paul.

What to do at the Caucus:

At your Caucus, you have two main goals.

First, vote for Ron Paul in the Presidential Preference Straw Poll.

Before the vote, there will be an opportunity for someone to speak on behalf of each candidate. Arrive early and discuss who should speak amongst your fellow supporters. Keep in mind, most locations will already have someone designated to speak.

If you are speaking, you will only have 2-5 minutes to communicate your points about Ron Paul. This is not enough time to express intricate details about foreign policy and philosophical statements. Focus on your own story and why you have come to put your trust in Ron Paul. Stay positive. If you seem trustworthy, others will trust you.

After voting takes place, most folks will leave – DON’T!

It is critical that as many Ron Paul delegates are elected as possible. So please sign up to become a delegate or raise your hand when asked, and be sure to vote for other Ron Paul supporters as delegates.

How to win:

Winning your Caucus is all about TURN OUT, TURN OUT, TURN OUT. Bring everyone you know with you to vote for Ron Paul.

Iowa, Are You Ready for the Caucuses?

On January 3rd, Iowans will head to local churches, town halls and community centers to participate in the caucus process. A simple secret ballot doesn’t cut it. At many locations, speeches will be given by grassroots supporters in support of their candidate. Last night, Nick Spohn, who was kind enough to let me crash on his couch, shared the speech he is planning to give. Don’t worry, you aren’t required to speak! Take a listen:

What do you think of his speech?

If you are a supporter of Dr. Paul in Iowa, please take the time to study the caucusing process. I’ll be adding more information on this blog in the coming days. For now, take a look and share the following caucus training video. Remember, the key is to talk to your co-workers, friends and neighbors about the process and to get them to your caucus location on January 3rd! Here is a general overview:

(Don’t worry, Ron Paul is in the video too!)

Here’s what you can do:

Christmas Vacation with Ron Paul

The official Ron Paul 2012 campaign has announced a special program for people who wish to support Dr. Paul where it matters most during the holidays. Do your part to spread the word to young professionals and college students who are ready to sacrifice their personal plans, during this time, for the sake of the Republic! See the link below. To get us into the spirit, I also happen to be launching my new Christmas album today, 11/11/11! I’ll let you read on about this fantastic program to help Dr. Paul, while you hear my new ablum. Hopefully, very soon, you’ll be listening to this while you canvass in Iowa or New Hampshire!

(While I’m a part of this band, we do not endorse candidates.)

• New Year’s with Ron Paul in New Hampshire (Jan. 2, 2012 to Jan. 11, 2012)
The campaign will provide for all participants’ meals, lodging, and transportation (once you’re in the state).
