Ron Paul May Play Kingmaker: Perfect Storm for Brokered Republican Convention

A perfect storm may be headed towards the 2012 Republican Convention in Tampa Bay Florida.

I am telling you this right

I am telling you this right now, we must not take Santorum lightly. Do not let him hang around, the longer he sits on top, the harder it will be to bring him down. We need to get the truth out about him before it is too late.

the plan

haven't read it, but I think a brokered convention is the idea. With California, nevada and other large western states Paul pretty much automatically will dominate delegates.

Our numbers always continue growing, and ALL we need is time for the message to reach the masses... at around 14% nationally now, expoential growth is already starting to kick in.

As for Kingmaker, not a chance. Only King. and the GOP would do well to accept that now.
