Anyone Know The Delegate Gain From Yesterday Voting?

What about Alaska - Paul can not get a plurality there?

Anyone have the uninterrupted version?

Anyone have the uninterrupted version of this without the guy cutting in?

If you really want this

If you really want this revolution to continue, run for office.

You can run for any office at any level. All we need is TONS of liberty candidates to run everywhere at all levels federal and state.

Even if you run for mayor of your 10,000 person town, DO IT!

Run for your water district if you have to!

Getting tons of people elected is the only way we can win no matter who is the president.

If Obama gets re-elected, but Missouri has the majority of state legislatures, then they could start to Nullify laws that are unconstitutional.

Imagine if we could do this in a couple states.

Imagine if we don't have to because we have a strong following in Congress and the Senate.

So then Plan A:
Ron Paul wins the nomination which exposes the fraud the media is to the masses. Then we elect tons of Liberty candidates across the country, and we give Ron Paul help in Congress, Senate, and at the local level.

Plan B: Ron Paul gets frauded the nod and doesn't run as a third party/ runs as a third party (doesn't matter which way for plan B), but we send 20 liberty congressmen, and 5 senators to Washington. We gain political power.

Plan C: Ron Paul loses for whatever reason, and we get 1 new congressmen and 1 senator to show for it.

I want Plan A, but plan B is a good choice.

So if you like me and in school, donate to the liberty candidates across the country.

If your lucky enough to be in a position to run, then please run and ride this wave of momentum that we have created. In many areas winning the republican primary but losing on Nov 6 gives you an automatic spot on the central committee (at least how it works around here). Even running but losing sends a message that we aren't going away until our constitutional liberties, the deal we the people made with the government, are restored.

Convention Revolt

So it seems highly possible that Mittens will have the required # of delegates going into the convention, but Ron Paul will still go with his delegates. What are the chances that on the first ballot all hell breaks loose and the supposedly bound delegates revolt and vote for Paul, or even Santorum or Gingrich?

Is there still a "vote" if the frontrunner has the required number of delegates going in? How do they even know who you are a delegate for? This gets more confusing the more I think about it. Take Minnesota where Ron Paul has "won" 20 out of 24 delegates chosen last weekend. Are these delegates declaring their support prior to being elected? Or are they revealingly their support publicly AFTER being elected? Is the campaign outing them?

And what happens in primaries where the delegates are supposed to be bound. Do they by default get counted towards Mittens or the winner of the State? What happens to Santorum delegates from PRIMARY states vs delegates he won in CAUCUS states?

When delegates are referred to as "bound" do they really mean "supposed to vote for" the popular vote winner, as in the electoral college. The electoral college does not have to go with the popular vote either, as I think SC didn't vote for Nixon when he won the popular vote.

So many questions......

And that's why it's called the REVOLUTION! :-D

I hope I get to make it to Tampa for this thing. I'm hoping it's FU(KING EPIC!!

mitt needs 1144 BOUND

mitt needs 1144 BOUND delegates to clinch it. as it stands now, the major networks are only reporting proposed delegate totals based on the straw vote, not just bound delegates.

The Warren G. Harding factor!

A lowly spot at the crony convention with vicious people

is nothing to be excited about or claim any victory. Other formal candidates could also have done the same as Paul if they hadn't dropped when it was fairly certain they couldn't get the 1144 delegates needed.

A convention where people are pro-fed and pro-wars and offer more debt when speaking of limited government is a disaster, and yet people are so thrilled that they think they made it in crony world.

A spot at the convention is nothing. Romney's nomination is sealed. And being at the convention means you essentially support Romney as the convention is about Romney and to celebrate his rigged win.

Troll Alert

"lib" was routed out for Romney trolling in another comments section. Disregard comment.

Editing here: "lib" took the -5 comment down and only my rebuttal shows now. Pay attention - keep this site clean and we can do the same with the country (look at me, I am just a stay-at-home mom of 50 - not "the youth" that supports RP - and I caused someone to take their stuff down!)

question

So if we don't manage to win some states in the next few Primaries we are basically done correct? From the MSM's count of delegates Romney stands at 844 and if he were to sweep the rest of the Primaries that would put him at 1614. That is well over the 1144 he needs to clinch the nomination. So I wonder if we will ever see a more accurate delegate count or if we will just be fed the projected numbers.

I know Mitt has to have lower than 844....

I don't knon why

but I just turned on Fox News and they are reporting that with the wins that Romney won last night that it is impossible for Paul to win. So off goes the TV again. Fox doesn't want to explain that the Beauty Contest doesn't mean anything. Delegates, delegates, delegates is what will win the nomination. DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE FOLKS. We are getting the delegates. Be positive!!!

Your kids are watching you!

I went door to door. Spoke to a self proclaimed anarchist who, on my list, was a liberterian. Said we didn't have a chance - it's going to be Obama. I told him that I have to do what I am doing because I have 4 kids (2 at BYU - boy do their roomates know who we support - balloons, helium tanks, chocolate bars, the works!). He was weary to talk with me at first but upon leaving gave me a strong handshake. We CAN have an effect, this election is a political and moral issue and we must participate as best we are able.

"Beauty contest" is important and the way to get more

delegates as winning in what you call 'beauty contests' or what others call a presidential election means you build momentum and garner attention for your platform, which then gets you even more votes and hence, delegates.

I don't think Romney's establishment campaign full of former bush-cheney folks are not so stupid that they don't how to win at the very game that they set up.

jj

these "beauty contests" often lead directly to delegates

For example, in New York and Connecticut, the candidates and state committees choose delegates that are strongly committed to vote for the candidates to whom they are bound. There's no convention with a possibility of a few stealth delegates sneaking in. Between those two states, Romney got approximately 120 solidly pro-Romney delegates last night.

Yeah

That's what I was saying. I know he doesn't have 844 but they could just say he has 1144 to the American people, than what would we do?

Can you abstain from voting

Can you abstain from voting on the first ballot and still be eligible to vote on the second?

yes... people should become

yes... people should become fake mitt delegates then abstain

A "fake mitt delegate" is not accurate

Becoming a delegate is simply just that. You ask others to elect you to use good judgement and elect a president at the convention.

Whether you are bound to mitt or not doesn't matter. People change their minds. Before I knew of Paul, I though mitt was ok. Then I did some research and WOW. Can't believe I ever thought Romney was a good choice. In fact, I have canceled my cable television and banned news channels such as yahoo from my home once I saw the truth and realized the games being played by the media and establishement of crooks. Especially the media, it clicked and I fully realize they spew nothing but lies....24/7. The media is poison, thos overpaid talking heads should be jailed for what they are helping do to America.

MSM LIES and BLACKOUT of real issues are FRAUD = CRIME = JAIL

That is right, Main Stream Media and it's bobbing heads are FRAUD, big time. BLACKOUT of REAL issues and constant LIES by NEWS outlets is a FRAUD, a CRIME. They should be sentenced and jailed. Why are we tolerating it?
Write your Attorney General about the great fraud they commit daily!

We're DOING IT!!!

...it's not hard to get discouraged/frustrated/angry, all negative and alike...to watch the MSM & right wing talk radio tell us we're down, and then kick us when they walk by!!!

I have been with this since 2007, it motivated me to run for state rep in Michigan! I had to run 3rd party because THOSE Republicans wanted nothing to do with Ron Paul's approach(or George Washington's Farewell Address specifically when I mentioned it to the County Executive Committee there!)

From writing Tea Party Speeches in Monroe, MI; to delivering them for local Liberty candidates running against a RINO machine , to calling a HUGE Chicago television news station out for ignoring Ron Paul as one of 4 Republican candidates still in the race before Super Tuesday(they MENTIONED him and his delegates this morning BTW, even though Mitt dominated last night); to our Parade march on St. Patrick's Day here in my home town ... my personal/humble/seemingly risky investment has ALL paid off - why? - because it was PATRIOTIC!!!

Human to human, American to American - we've IMPACTED people on a personal level - this thing ain't over!!!

We are a BODY, we are; "the body politic" - we are ALL PARTS - and the summation of our parts put together has gotten us HERE! Fight on; do your thing to get us to Tampa!!!

Everything that embodies this Ron Paul MOVEMENT is BEAUTIFUL

Rigged

I believe it is rigged so he prolly did win one of those states last night. but the rest of these are primarys right? winner take all? so does he expect to win Texas and Cali>?

i have to say...

im SO PROUD OF YOU ALL! This whole media blackout, all the bs in the voting process, establishment doing EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER to stop Ron Paul, and WE ARE STANDING STRONG. We are winning the battles everyday, picking up delegates because WE unlike the sheep the establishment control CARE to stick around and FIGHT.

My only hope, is that we can get some NATIONALLY TELEVISED debates. Because Ron Paul will wipe the floor with those 2 puppets.

The only problem i forsee is the debates not being highly viewed, the people being told its still romney vs obama, even though theres another name on the ballot, and people just going along in their cloud of ignorance and picking between the two puppets.

Ron Paul is a JEDI.
