Just curious. I'm a delegate.

3. I'm a delegate to District and State. I'm also on the platform committee.

We do have in the platform a suggestion for a Constitutional Amendment to ensure corporations are not persons. Also that corporations are not allowed to contribute to political campaigns in state, local, and federal elections in the state of Iowa.

I'm in Council Bluffs.

4. Good for you. I was a delegate in 2000 in TX. I tried to get a Medical Marijuana platform in

The Powers that be were too afraid of what the GOP would say and maneuvered to keep my proposal off the floor.

Politics is fun. AS Red Skelton used to say "Good luck and God bless"
