State GOP Condemns Caucus Shutdown/Promises to Accept Delegates- Local TV on Story Now


Read the article at that link; good Statement by Missouri GOP condeming the problems in the caucuses today.

The video is no good, but they also now are interviewing the Ron Paul supporter who was arrested, so there will be more video to come.

I'll post it here if I can get it.

It's unclear how those delegates will be chosen.

this has been planned

for quite some time it seems, remember the training manuals listing Ron Paul and his supporters as terrorists? was that pre-conditioning for expectations of how Ron Paul's supporters were not likely accept what they intended to do to prevent his nomination...

Don't hate the player, hate the game!!!

E Dokes

I think he purged his facebook wall of all negative comments, but a couple have been posted since. He posted a link to a breitbart article that says he did no wrong and that a rowdy crowd was disregarding the rules. http://www.facebook.com/docdokes?sk=wall

The video proves he was

The video proves he was disregarding the rules..LIAR!

This man

Dick..I mean Deak must be remove from the GOP along with Charlie Webster.

I know what is going on

I know what is going on with the process, but I am not going to discuss it right now.

Once things are firm and in place, I will let everyone know.

Good to hear that, Brent. Or are you Brent's advisor....

Either way, its good to hear you stayed on top of it.

Make sure to get an air-tight case, before you move forward.

John Slevin has posted a lot of helpful advice. He's also been trying to get that information to you folks, hopefully you received it(the cameras would be legal, thus that rule's tossed out).

There is certainly room for some high civil damages, and an open shut case of violations.


Also we gotta make it MORE clear to EUGENE that his campaign

for Congress is gonna fail from the start if he tries ANYTHING at all...


What do you mean IF he starts anything at all?

Figuratively speaking, Eugene Dokes and his cronies have already punched us in the nose. So now we are supposed to beg him to stop hitting us or else? We should already be devising plans to submarine his Congressional campaign! As Gerald Celente would say, we need to "attack the attacker."

"Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth." - George Washington

There will need to be

even more supporters ready to go when the caucus reconvenes. Remember the Paul people had to make a deal with the Romney people to get the majority. Now the Santorum camp will have time to turn out more voters, and the Romney camp may not be willing to strike the same deal. Please St. Charles people, recruit now, get more people on your call lists, and let them know when the caucus is as soon as you find out!

This should not be allowed

Only those attending the original caucus should be allowed to attend. If E. Dokes "lost" the list of those who attended, he should be sued (well, he should be sued anyway, but another count)

Good luck to you all in St. Charles County as you attempt to get a fair result.


The original delegates should be the only ones allowed, however it is worth saying that the county RP supporters much focus on making sure all eligible delegates are there or have alternates in place. Always stay on the up-and-up, since the fight is supposed to be about fairness within the rules. But definitely don't leave any votes on the table or any rule unexamined.

Keep the faith delegates!

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

If you choose to communicate with MO GOP chair David Cole...

... allow me to suggest that presumptions, threats, vitriol, high-tension BS, etc WILL HARM US.

At this point, appeal to reason, justice and fairness. Consider him as one who wants the same. To get reason, justice and fairness, appeal to reason, justice and fairness. To start out by assuming that he will only give you injustice is to guarantee it.


IF, at a later date he reveals himself to not be reasonable and fair, then deal with that, one step at a time.

If you go in sounding and looking like a dipsht, you will destroy our cause.

BTW, my caucus was conducted fairly and reasonably. I don't think it hurt that I attended their meetings for 4 years and treated them with respect, even while disagreeing with them. In return, I, and our Ron Paul group, were treated like friends at our caucus. We didn't get ALL that we wanted, but we did not come out empty handed, either.

You can recommend fairness without being disagreeable.

What a load of crap. Who

What a load of crap.

Who makes the decision for starting 2nd Amendment enforced open and transparent voting?

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.


I find the "apology" to be quite inadequate. An actual apology would have included specific wrongs and remedies--To both comfort and reassure the offended person.

This is empty asterisk covering. Further, as demonstrated by the MO party, they WILL do whatever they want--So, this is likely an arrogant boast that they will install THEIR chosen delegates, rather than lose them due to Paul supporters.

You must deal with them, as you would if Billary or zer0 were the actual local leaders: As civil as possible, but Always committed and forward-looking; Always anticipating their movements and checking your flank.

The party should immediately eject these bozos. I see many calling for civil suits. Good idea, Then criminal courts--Voter intimidation, fraud, false arrest, more?... Much more evidence would be allowed into a civil suit, and much of that would be allowed into criminal court.

These processes are a serious matter. Not only for civility, but for the preservation of lawful order. Whatever cause the bozos have for failing, it amounts to treason at the battle-front, and it may WELL cost your children their freedom. Do NOT be afraid to imprison them.

just my dang opinion

We may be dumb as sheep, but we herd like cats, and are more clever than monkeys. What sane person would think us cattle?

Cut Some Slack

He doesn't have the whole story, yet, right? I mean, the "apology" came from someone who wasn't there, I think.

That means he can't be specific. I think it's great that the word is out that something will be done, and that he wasn't specific until the facts were investigated.

If I have that wrong, then at least it shows a willingness to address the issue, even if only due to the embarrassment and public scrutiny.

The Ron Paul supporters who were cheated should contact him and have a meeting to address how to handle it, even if it means another 15 day notice and new meeting.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

They just said what they had to say


turn up the heat

Are you concerned about GOP caucus fraud?

Please let them know your "feelings"... :)

Those comments on the article hurt my soul...

NOTE: I am not advocating violence in any way. The content of the post is for intellectual, theoretical, and philosophical discussion. FEDS, please don't come to my house.

Message to the State GOP: You best know we won't tolerate it...

You best know, we aren't going to TOLERATE this crap by the establishment liberals who are out there jim crowing about Ron Paul= a muslim all over the grassy knoll!!!

Ron Paul is NOT a muslim, a terrorist sympathizer, nor does anyone working on his behalf believe in electing muslims.


Mr. Dokes, the liberal chauvanist that he is has a racist problem against Muslims. Dr. Paul wants to get the troops home & deal with terrorism through letters of Marque & dealing with saboteurs rather than nanny state foreign interventionist wars. Opening up free trade, once again.

That type of rational foreign policy is the exact opposite of loving "Muslim" groups or playing favorites. It's time Mr. Dokes wise up to that fact & stand aside....

We can't ever afford another Obama and its high time he lose the election, before being tossed in jail.

That's why we conservatives stand with Congressman Ron Paul, to restore America & restore our Constitution!!!

How does a few hundred control 380 million?

Keep the 380 million fighting amongst themselves.

I agree with the comment below. It's really sad your post got 5 votes. Until the people figure out it's ALL of us against "them" we will continue to face our doom.

Your Muslim Comments

...do not reflect Ron Paul. I find them offensive, divisive and confusing.

Many Muslim Americans are Ron Paul supporters. There is no reason why a Ron Paulite Muslim American could or should not be elected to any position.

I don't know if your post was intentional or just unthinking. One Muslim Ron Paul supporter recently posted that she and many of her Muslim friends who were for Ron Paul did not tell non-Muslims that they were for Ron Paul for fear it would hurt his chances. How sad is that? In this country!

I wish you had not posted and I would hate to think that any Muslims4Ron Paul would read and think you actually got votes.


My comments were on behalf of all Muslims...

Instead of in opposition!!!

Dr. Paul stands for the freedom of everyone, Muslims included. That is why he nor anyone on his staff are Muslims/Muslim Brotherhood nor African Americans, Native Americans or Asian Americans.

They are simply AMERICANS, for one & all.

The divisive actions came from the GOP chair, who deliberately tried to bait the campaign into assuming Paul was a patsy for the Muslim brotherhood. I.E:, their dirty tricks.

It Wasn't Clear , Sam

...especially if you had just come to the DP and this thread.

I'm sure you didn't mean it that way and perhaps our exchange will clarify for anyone else who needs clarification.

Thanks for clarifying...to me ;)


Thanks, John.

Let's hope Missouri Republican Party Chairman David Cole is an honorable man. Maybe someone here can tell us more about him and what we can expect from him.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Its been my expierence

The more sun light shines in, the more "honorable" they become.
