What do we want our Ron Paul Delegates to do once they reach Tampa?

Should they stand tall for Dr. Paul, or should they vote Romney, in the event he become the Nominee?

Bottom line we need more delegates, more campaigners

and millions or little things each hour that help us free ourselves as individuals.

Free includes debt-free!

Beat the shit out..

of all the Romney silver hairs, drag em up to the stage by their hair and shake some f-ing sense into them. Peaceful revolution my ass, unless Romney keeps the cat in the bag by winning the remaining primaries, once that cat gets loose at convention it is gonna eat some people because it is damn hungry by now. And mad!

If you are a bound delegate,

If you are a bound delegate, you abstain on the vote if it isnt for Paul.
There is no need to vote for anyone else as whether voting for someone else(aside fro romney) or abstaining doesnt make a difference in Romney's total.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

You ARE the republican party if you are National Delegate.

Always remember that. YOU ARE THE PARTY if you are a National Republican Delegate. As an owner of the party, you make the rules and can change the rules. The most important position's are those up in the GOP ranks with official titles. THEY will try to pull things and change things for Romney. But the POWER is with the National Delegates, they just need to vote on it, what ever it is. And there is the tricky part, getting what the RP national delegates want OFFERED up for vote. So, you will have to REMOVE some people by vote, and that means getting together with Newt and Santorum delegates to do so. This is politics, that is, this is war. Watch videos of past conventions such as the Reagan Ford convention or the 1968 DNC convention and study up on the twist and turns.

Soldier on for Ron Paul and remember: If you can't take over the GOP & change it from the inside, then you can't take over US Policy and change it from the inside.

Ron Paul will always be My President,

Seriously Everyone!!!

Speak to the official campaign about this before getting advice from people here. No offense-everyone just needs to be on the same page when it all goes down in Tampa.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I'm just well-informed

Bound Delegates

If your bound to Santorum or Gingrich I would say you shouldn't abstain. It only brings us closer to brokered. Plus if they find out delegates are going to abstain they may disqualify them and replace them with alternates.

Hellloooo!!!!!!

A brokered convention is what we want. If Dr. Paul does not have the votes for the first vote, "bound" delegates need to abstain and vote for Dr. Paul in the second vote!

What are you? Another troll?

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
~ Peter Marshall, US Senate Chaplain 1947

HELLOOOO back

No i'm NOT a troll. COMMON SENSE.

Gingrich and Santorum clearly have NO way of reaching the 1144 delegates needed. So what I'm saying is if you're bound to one of these two, it makes sense to keep that vote rather than having the GOP find out you're going to abstain completely. There looking for any way to disqualify Paul delegates right now - and delegates and supporters are being WAY too vocal about what they plan on doing and this will hurt us in the end.

Stop revealing plans to the establishment.

Exactly

The Ron Paul campaign will let us know what to do. They do have a plan. Lets be patient.

Ron Paul 2012

Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

I am a state delegate

If I get the chance to go to Tampa...I will NOT vote for anyone but Ron Paul. He is the only reason I am in this. What happens after this election? I don't know...I would like to stay in and "become the govt." as RP would recommend. I will also make a run with www.GOOOH.com Again, supporting the belief that WE must become the Govt.

I am a Ron Paul Delegate...so help me God.

They should keep in touch with

campaign coordinators and take their directives is what they should do. Many on here will speculate without knowing the full repercussions of their actions......

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I'm just well-informed

abstain and weather the threats

The way i see it (typing from phone)
Round 1: Abstain
I think there will be threats and fear tactics used to keep that from happening.
Weather it.

Round 2: vote Paul
Bet there's some attempt at this point to steal the delegation. Maybe some types of threats carried out.

We win, with casualties that we may have legal fees for over the next few months.

And then, the scorch and burn policies of the moneymasters begins, and Paul and our ideologies take the hits in the eyes of the general public. Depression, world government, etc...

If we can make it through that, our future is roses for another generation, until the control freaks make their ageless power plays again.

Imo

I've seen variations of this on public forums. Not a new idea.

Any Ron Paul delegate that

Any Ron Paul delegate that turncoats and votes for that crooked man doesn't deserve to call themself American.

As I said, I fear this as it

As I said, I fear this as it happened to all 4 of our delegates in 08.
I believe that going in, we should insist our delegates stay true to Paul, so the establishment REALLY gets that we are a voting block to contend with. If we cave, we send the message that we can be bought or or bullied into submission and vote for the scumbag Romney.

So Trott, you believe our

So Trott, you believe our delegates should vote Romney on the first round if Romney already has the necessary delegates?

Can you show me where I said that?

I can't find it.

The question is a little confusing

libertylady wrote: "Should they stand tall for Dr. Paul, or should they vote Romney, in the event he become the Nominee?"

Does that mean how would someone vote if Romney had already received a majority during the roll call vote? Or does it mean that someone is telling the delegate that Romney already has enough to win the roll call vote?

Either way I would vote for Ron Paul to the end.

Even if someone were going to vote for Romney to gain political favor I would suggest that he or she only do it in the event that Romney has already received enough votes to win. If someone is just telling you that Romney has enough to win, I'd recommend sticking with Paul because there is a good possibility that person may be lying to you.

Good enough, but what will

Good enough, but what will you do when and if the time comes and you realize that Ron Paul can't win? Our 4 delegates from NV caved and justified what they did.

Does that mean Romney must win?

Wouldn't the decision for someone who was going to change his or her vote to another candidate depend upon who the other players are at that time? Who's to say that Romney would be the best pick of the bunch?

Can't ?

That "word" should not be in our vocabulary.
Is that "can't" as in "winning" the GOP nod...
...or "can't" as in winning as a 3rd Party (OMG!) Candidate?

This is nothing more than negative projection.
It has no merit whatsoever.
Period! End of story!

IF Ron Paul wins CA

I will be a delegate for Ron Paul and intend to stand tall for Ron Paul. I respect Romney, I respect Romney voters, but I am a Ron Paul Republican.. I campaigned as a Ron Paul Republican to win my seat on my Republican Central Committee, and my seat on the Board of Supervisors. MY goal is to become the government Ron Paul has taught me to appreciate and to represent those who signed my petition and voted for me.

In 08 we sent 4 delegates.

In 08 we sent 4 delegates. They all voted for McCain. Their excuse is that McCain was going to win anyway, and they "cashed in" for party favors.

This is a very serious topic.

This is a very serious topic. We will have many more delegates than last time, and the stakes will be higher. There is rumor going round that the campaign will try and strong arm our delegates to vote Romney so that they can secure future jobs.
WE ARE THE PEOPLE sending the delegate. Choose carefully.

Good point.

We have to have faith in the fortitude of our delegates. After all, what is more important....money from a corrupt government out of the pockets of the people, or the freedom to pursue your own destiny?

I spoke to 6 of them that are going...

They will be speaking out for the principals of Liberty and the people are fed up with this status quo. The only vote will be for Ron Paul...

This should be the Paul delegates' motto...

"PRESIDENT PAUL OR NO ONE AT ALL"

Fight all the way to the bitter end.

Never give in - Never surrender.

This is our FINAL chance in the History of Man to get Ron Paul elected so what the hell do we have to lose?

Since it matters not one iota whether Romney or Obama wins in the overall scheme of things, we should stand our ground.

Remember Paulites; Ore complaint is just as much with the republican party itself as with anything.

The have lost their way and are the now the democrats of 30 or 40 years ago.

While the democrats are the new Communists.

Definitely Stand Tall!!

Since there is no real distinction between BO and MR, writing in Dr. Paul is the only real option. Ron Paul or none at all!

I am sure...

that Dr. Paul and his team will be providing direction when the times comes.

Of course they will, but that

Of course they will, but that wasn't what I meant. My question is, what do YOU think they should do? Should they stand tall for Paul, or vote Romney? Why do you assume the campaign's "direction" will be the right way to go? Aren't we able to think for ourselves?
