What's with the fractional

What's with the fractional votes Oo.

Anyway that was cool as hell!
Ron Paul supporters are being targeted in GA (well in some places at least from my knowledge), this gives me some confidence we can fight back.

WOW !!!........

Oustanding video. Thats all I can say. I think the guy who called for the amendment vote must have noticed that people were filming all this and that alone scared them into being honest.
Its no fun to be shown on the nightly news as the poster child for election fraud !

Amazing work!

It was scary how close that vote count was!! :O

There are tons of neocons out there. We have our work cut out for us. :/

A lot of work indeed

And the first step is to stop thinking in "us and them" terms. Don't label others with "neocon" or anything else.

We will win this with cooperation and gentle persuasion. It's not a war.

It was Irving Kristol, Bill Kristol's dad, who...

coined the term Neocon, so why is it pejorative to use it to identify these people who are Neoconservatives? It means "New Conservative."

Thank You

It is the negative connotation of "Neocon" that is divisive. They are very often the old guard who grew up when the Republican Party WAS liberty-minded and constitutionally aware. Unfortunately, the Republican Party as they knew it, has drifted out from under their original ideals, principles, and philosophies. This has happened so slowly, and in such insidious ways, that those who we now call neocons have difficulty seeing that the status quo Republicans are taking us in the wrong direction. Changing their view will take time and perserverance, and I agree, it is easy to become impatient and write them off with negative labels. But, that is counter to our cause and can solidify them in their commitment to the status quo which has failed. In this light, COOPERATION as used above, to me means learning Robert's Rules and participating in the process, and calling out fraud and dishonesty via video, the media (such as it is, but local is better than National), and the internet. Persuasion, gentle or otherwise, is as the individual sees fit, but responsible civility should be the guiding limit, i.e., would your mother approve. Now, if I can just follow my own advice, I am off to get some nomination signatures, and lure a few more Republicans in to the Paul camp.

In Liberty, we are all in this together.

While I agree with your sentiment (labels are divisive),

you must realize that "cooperation" and "gentle persuasion" are foreign concepts to neocons. It wouldn't work with people of that mindset. Of course, we can try but, when all else fails, call it what it is. No use pretending.

Well said...

Unfortunately it is a "WAR!", let's try win it peacefully.

Simply outstanding

To see due process play out like that. It is uplifting.

Just flipping AWESOME

Great job OK liberty fighters!

VICTORY!!!

That just brought tears to my eyes...THIS is how it is done. Congratulations to those brave people in Oklahoma...

This is the tipping point...and the example for all others.

The opposition is on to our delegate strategy and is trying to shut it down. These are ruthless, brainwashed people...probably in Freemason cults...and that indoctrination runs deeper than most can imagine.

You just stood up in the belly of the beast and claimed VICTORY!!!

With Truth, Courage and Honesty!!! We will not be denied VICTORY!

For Future Voters: Bring your video camera...in fact, bring TWO!!!

Designate videographers (like designated drivers) to record all of the proceedings. Know Robert's Rules of Order and back each other up...WOW.

We sure have some awesome firepower

this time around. Great work Oklahoma, everyone who still has yet to go become a delegate needs to watch this!!!!

This

is why we're in the fix we're in! I'm talking about those neocons that stood up there and tried to railroad good folks that want our nation back!
This is what it will take! Now is the time!!!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

the rules worked

Devil's advocate here in the interest of understanding, learning, and improving our tactics within the system: The old guard, status quo Republicans (note my lack of the less flattering label Neocon) were making the point that they were just following the rules, and that to have an orderly process you need SOME sort of process/rules to follow. Yes, the rules to which they were referring were serving their interest, but as such, a motion was made and voted on, and luckily in this case it allowed more people to participate in the process. These days the phrase, "more people to participate in the process", means essentially, "defenders of individual liberty to participate in the process".

Revolution will not be televisied. So bring your camera people!

bump for the good work.
Unbelievable that sooooo many voting situations went by without any video of these events.
WTF people.

I guess somebody has to lead the way.

Very encouraging - thanks!

I'm not clear about one thing

I don't get exactly what happened here.

As near as I can understand there were some number of Paul supporters (13? 40?) who were rejected as delegates because their registration could not be verified at precinct meetings on some previous day, and the rules require verification at each precinct meeting to qualify as delegates at this (county? state?) convention. They waved their ID cards here at the convention, but that doesn't explain why they could not be verified at the precinct meetings. Anyone know?

Around 1:22 in the video...

The Vice Chairman of Precinct 116 takes the mic and explains that one of the delegates who the establishment was trying to reject was indeed approved at the precinct level at a meeting he chaired.

This suggests that the establishment's reasons for barring that individual are bogus, and if that is the case, the same is probably true for others too.

Note that the Precinct 116 chairman is a Romney supporter, so he doesn't really have a motive to lie about that.

Beware the blowback...

Well, that's the story for only one of them. We don't what happened with the rest, and in this one case oversight/error is just as likely the cause as intentional wrongdoing. Maybe all of the others failed to bring proper identification to the precinct meeting? We don't know.

Here's my point. I don't like the lack of assumption of good faith, and all the accusations and bad feelings.

It just seems to me that the same positive result could have been achieved without all the interrupting, yelling and general animosity. Win them over with respect and civility, not obnoxiousness. Beware the blowback...

yelling is bad

Yes, the yelling was counterproductive and hurts the cause of liberty. Relentless pressure with respect and civility, backed up by facts. Keep it going people!

nice

great job

:D

This made my day! Excellent post! BUMPTY BUMP!

Nice job!! Fight until the end!
