What do you want: A Private Club?

A "Private Club" where ONLY "Those In-The-Know" are welcome?

I have news for you: Some people DON'T KNOW and if anyone does not know, the least we can do is to offer them a warm welcome reception.

No locks on our door. Welcome EVERYONE.

Former Obama people are here. Isn't that nice? Hmmmm?

Sorry to Hear about Senator Santorum's Child

I've got a little 3 yr old myself, so I can understand his priorities and I pray for God's blessings for him and his family.

In regard to the current GOP race - how does Santorum dropping out affect a brokered convention? Will delegates bound to vote for Santorum still be required to do so on the first round of voting? Or can they vote as they see fit? Or must they vote as Santorum instructs them to (for Romney or Gingrich for instance, if Santorum makes a deal with either).

Anyone know what the general party rules are on this?

Caldwell TEA Party on the Romney Bandwagon

Well at least it took them an hour to decide, but you would think by now they would be better practiced at it since they've been Bauchman/Cain/Perry/Santorum supporters and in that order from the get-go.
I'll try to be polite, but it's getting difficult suffering fools.

A big welcome

to all new Ron Paul voters. Lets have a real republican win. Go Ron Paul!

Welcome to the Revolution

If you are a former Santorum supporter, I want to welcome you to the real Revolution...
If you enjoy seeing your candidate in the news, surrounded by reporters, lots of smiles, then you will be a little disappointed, because OUR MAN Dr. RON PAUL just doesn't get that kind of coverage, But if you support what few freedoms you now enjoy and want to keep those, and hopefully pass on some kind of legacy to your children, then this is the place to be. Welcome to THE RON PAUL REVOLUTION, This race is only half way done, and WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
Please take the time to visit DAILYPAUL and tell anyone else you know to try Dr. Paul, don't let the Mainstream media tell you where to place your mark in the voting booth. OK
I am sure you will find someone interesting in this Revolution, and maybe develop some new lifelong friendships too.

Brokered convention

Do not give up hope so easy. Gingrich is still in the running, and we will not know if it is brokered, until the first round of voting in Tampa. I know that it will be easier now for the GOP to fix the voting, but do not despair. We need to continue to fill up the delegate spots in every state. Keep up the good fight, I believe we are still winning.

He does in the South

And Mitt is not liked there. He can still play a role in slowing Romney.

Btw, All you do is post negative comments, If you have nothing good/helpful/interesting/positive to say, then dont say anything.

You find my comments "negative?" Here's POSITIVE! :)

Paul needs to leave TX

Remember when Santorum went on a 3-win back to back in? This is what help Santorum be the anti-Mitt while Paul was doing little campaigning.

This is now a second/last window to become the anti-Mitt. Paul needs to set up speaking events in the 5 states that vote on the 24th this week...not later or its over.

Agreed

Intense campaigning in each of the five April 24 states. Heck, a news cycle is 24 hours. We've seen campaigns make up 8 points in one day of campaigning after a fortuitious event.

Sooo...what happens

to his delegates? Do they become unbound?

Yep.

Or at least that's how I hear the GOP rules work.

= = = =
"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

Not Quite

They only become unbound when he drops OUT of the race. For now, he has SUSPENDED his race. But this happens frequently when candidates eventually drop out because this allows them to continue receiving donations that can then be used to pay off his debts.

However, by the time the convention rolls around, they will become unbound as he will switch to dropping out at that point.

So any Ron Paul supporters

So any Ron Paul supporters who were delegates for Santorum and bound to vote for him by state rules are now free to vote for Ron Paul (or Romney / Gingrich) on the first vote at the Convention (assuming Santorum does indeed drop)?

When he drops, yes. Further,

When he drops, yes. Further, some delegates may pass on moving up if their guy is out, leaving room for alternates. :)

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

I wonder...

How much Romney had to pay for this? He must be swimming in santorum...oh I mean money.

I find it funny that so many of you assume

that all of Rick Santorum's supporters are Christians. Mark Levin is CERTAINLY NOT a Christian and if he supports Santorum, I'm sure there's lots more out there like him. (No offense to Jews, just making my point)

It's Because A Group Of About 180

evangelical leaders got together and endorsed Rick Santorum. And if you noticed many of the exit polling data indicated that Santorum was getting a large chunk of the evangelical votes...

Well, if their vote is

Well, if their vote is religion based, they're down to Catholic, LDS, Baptist. Interesting things at play. Oh, forgot, or Marxist.

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

Enough with the 'we are Christian' stuff

While we welcome everyone to the liberty movement please do not shamelessly pander with the "Dr. Paul is sooo Christian". It makes him look like.......well, like Santorum.
Dr. Paul let's his life and actions reflect his faith and who he is without the 'look at me, I'm so righteous' nonsense.
You know....like a true Christian.

It is not righteous

for one or his supporters to clearly state beliefs. In fact many commentators are saying that Paul and Santorum were the only authentic candidates in the race. Each is confident in his faith and family values.

Nah. Paul's the most humble

Nah. Paul's the most humble and respectful guy I've ever seen run for any office, let alone POTUS.
--Nobody would mistake others' praise of his honesty and consistency as self-righteousness on his part.
--Maybe you are concerned about losing a few anti-theist votes if they are reminded of Paul's personal religionism? They'll have to learn to deal. It'll be good for 'em.

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

If you want to speak to Santorum Supporters...

If you want to speak to Santorum Supporters you need to understand where they are coming from and make a bridge where you can meet half-way.

A lot of damage has been done to these people by WOLVES IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING in "Christian Radio".

Religion has ALWAYS been used to use people.

For someone to realize that...that could give someone a SERIOUS NERVOUS BREAKDOWN.

You have to be very gentle with them. I am very serious.

...And The TRUTH shall set them free.

there goes any shot at a

there goes any shot at a brokered convention

Ron Paul supporters who were

Ron Paul supporters who were bound to be delegates for Santorum at the first round of the convention can now vote for Paul in the first round. This makes the delegate hunt even more critical, which Ron is doing fairly well with so far.

We'll see how it plays out. Also - primary states. Are delegates in primary states like Ohio now free to vote their conscience that Santorum has dropped out? (Santorum won Ohio if I remember correctly). I know there's a whole slate of people in my county who are Ron Paul delegates who are currently bound to Santorum.

This could change things for the better.

In ohio we voted for a slate

In ohio we voted for a slate of delegates, the santorum slate won so most likely they are all santorum supporters. Unless some ron paul people signed up as santorum delegates hopeing his slate won only so they could switch if he happen to drop out, but that seems unlikely

why am i being down voted for

why am i being down voted for speaking something everybody knows, ron has said himself we have a shot as long as they all stay in and even then its a very slim one. Sorry quit being little babies is almost mathematically impossible to get a brokered convention now, im not happy bout it but it's the truth!
