UnCertainty has RINOs on Edge! Yale PoliSci.John Stoehr: We know HOW Ron Paul is winning Delegates, but don't know WHY!

A very interesting read, aside from the usual 'presumptive,' 'has it all but locked up' RINO wishful meme.

"This is politics, after all -- the art of the possible."

Now, how about that? ANYTHING is possible.)

"Last week, news reports came out slowly and then more frequently on what Paul was doing and why he might be doing it. Bottom line: We know how, but not why. We also know that the Republican establishment isn't taking this well."

Why Ron Paul could still rain on Romney's parade

The libertarian candidate who won't go quietly.

By John Stoehr Published 07 May 2012 8:59

Rick Santorum is gone. So is Newt Gingrich. Everything looked ready for a general election match-up between Republican Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama. Just one thing, though. Ron Paul. Most of us forgot he was still running, few of us realized he was pulling off a kind of quite coup, and no one seems to know what it means.

Paul is the libertarian candidate whose Old Right platforms were all the rage in 1939. Romney, Santorum or Gingrich have beaten him in all the primaries and caucuses. Even so, he and his small army of supporters, which by some estimates has doubled since his 2008 run for the White House, is slowly staking up delegates against frontrunner Romney in states that held nonbinding caucuses. Over the weekend, he took Nevada and Maine. The weekend prior, he dominated delegates in Louisiana's state convention. Others include Iowa, Minnesota, Colorado and Alaska.

Last week, news reports came out slowly and then more frequently on what Paul was doing and why he might be doing it. Bottom line: We know how, but not why. We also know that the Republican establishment isn't taking this well. An attorney for the Republican National Committee warned Nevada that it could forfeit its spot at the national convention if Paul walks away a winner. Fox News, when it covered the RNC's threat, summed up the establishment view: Paul's "renegade campaign" hopes to "tinker with the Nevada delegate count" in order to "hijack the GOP convention."

The New statesman

is getting hammered in their own comment section, maybe they'll think twice before writing such garbage again.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

always count on an expert to point out the obvious

or on other occasions, a previously debunked notion, to make it seem like new

not really true

Paul came in second more than any other candidate, and pretty much beat Gingrich every time with the exception of a few states

All I can do is...

Duhhh

Supposedly an "expert". Another total dunce.

Why? Why you Ask?

Because there are two kinds of Americans.

Those who vote and think that's the end of the deal. Done their duty, nothing much gonna change anyway, going back to the tube and a cold one. Good Americans, just disinterested and perhaps disaffected. Who can blame them?

Then there are those who ARE interested and understand that politics is power. There are two types here: one wants power OVER people - to control them and take from them using the power of government; one uses such power to protect people from just the sort of government and others who seek to control and deprive, thru force or fraud. There's no gray area here, despite all the guff about 'compromise'.

Ron Paul supporters are this last type. Thank God for them and their R3volution. Ron Paul supporters SHOW UP and don't take NO for an answer. Enough is enough. This is THEIR time - and they aren't going away until they've backed government off to its' proper place.

Bloggers ought to write like professional writers.

They ought to check spelling and everything. They should have someone proof their work for them. It isn't like a quick note to friends. Even on here, I remind myself that people often post in a hurry and it isn't always someone's skill to be able to spell. But, an article or blog is different. On top of that, quite vs. quiet is one of those mistakes that's on all the lists to watch out for.
To me, it makes him look like an amateur, along with his dicey delegate estimates.

but... but.. but...

he went to Yale and everything! You know where the most brilliant village idiot to have ever graced the Earth, GWB, also 'attended' when he wasn't coked up or drunk??

He spent about 1/4 to 1/2 million dollars on Ivy League education! Come on! Cut him some slack! After all, a typo is exactly what the State requires to lie us into illegal wars. I mean how else could you convince a majority population of 'grown up' imbeciles emotively swayed like a ragdoll when a few key emotionally charged words are invoked?

Come on he's gotta get used to practice swapping "Q" with "N" from "Ira_" if he ever wants to be in the same 'club' as his colleagues!

After all, ALL of his colleagues are responsible for the perfect world of bullets, bombs, and banks we're living in!

Come on! After all, they HAVE to dictate to us how the world works, what 'laws' the universe functions under, telling us how the world is not flat anymore, all the while their own moral and intellectual relativism have flat-lined.

After all, we're peons. We must be told whom to support. What specific range of possible variables can only be talked about as long as they approve that said range of topic fit for private and public discourse. The State Uber alles!

Oh wait, I hear the doorbell. It's the (wo)men in lab whites come to take me away to govt psyop re-education camps! No.........

LOL .)

p.s. on a side note, by non-existent MSM standards, I suppose other than from people like Ben Swann where there are probably less than 5 people on daily TV news, to be fair, Stoehr's article isn't as bad as... say ANY of the other print or TV media like CNN, MSDNC, and FakeNews et al.

Predictions in due Time...

RNC lawyer threatens to forfeit NV in RNC if Ron Paul wins!?!?!

From the above story...

"An attorney for the Republican National Committee warned Nevada that it could forfeit its spot at the national convention if Paul walks away a winner. Fox News, when it covered the RNC's threat, summed up the establishment view: Paul's "renegade campaign" hopes to "tinker with the Nevada delegate count" in order to "hijack the GOP convention."

Wow. The lawyer wants NV GOP to pad the delegate list with neocons.

Per Google, this threat is spreading around the internet. It has legs.

Is there any detail on who this lawyer is? We should contact and make our own demands...legal ones of course.

I believe the Nevada chairman of Ron Paul's presidential campaign knows who this bully attorney is.

The article is weird. He says

The article is weird. He says in LA alone Ron got 111 delegates, listed other totals, then says he has 93 delegates..he beat that in LA, alone, with the guy's own figures, so where is his head? I liked his writing style, but his information is highly confused.

Right,

He was probably referring to district or county delegates, but then he uses those bogus AP totals to speak about total delegates.

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

I

I smell french fries

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

LOL! With a song in my heart! Wait till Tampa, MSM dogs!!

Did he have his fingers in

Did he have his fingers in his ears while he yelled "lalalalalalalala" as he wrote this?

lol!
