Convention battle plan. The takeover.Submitted by rba1225 on Tue, 05/08/2012 - 14:00
I was with my ron paul group yesterday discussing the events of this last weekend in the different conventions since I am a delegate to the Texas State convention. One of the things I realized and i brought up with the group is that no matter what, liberty has won. The ron paul supporters have won. I know that nobody knows who will end up triumphantly be declared the winner at the national convention. No one knows the true numbers. ONly guesses. But guess what? I know that ron paul supporters will outnumber the establishment delegates. With that, there are so many possibilities just like in nevada and maine. The national delegates can choose a ron paul supporter for national chairman, can choose a national everything. None of the delegates are bound to choose a specific vice president. If romney wants rubio, the delegates can vote him down and choose a liberty minded vice president. Just remember ronald reagan in 1980. He fought against a bitter opponent, george bush. In the end, the establishment delegates chose for him george bush. This time though, ron paul supporters can choose a vice president to their liking. Someone that will be able to represent conservatives against Joe biden in the vice president debate.
Anothe thing i realized was that the national delegates can influence the platform. They can finally put things such as End the fed, return all the troops from across the sea. Change the tax code to a flat tax of 10% or 15% like dr. paul has said. The delegates can do that. I will do my part and elect a national delegate that represents the ron paul supporters. I think we should be happy.
Great change is happening. And i feel it's thanks to Dr. paul. I dont' know what will happen like i said. Even though he won nevada, those delegates are still binded by the states to vote for romney 20 delegates whether anyone likes it or not. From what i heard, when you pledge to vote for a specific candidate, you have to keep your pledge and your word. Ron paul has kept his pledge and his word by playing by the rules for 40 years. Like i said everything is in the bag. What we don't know is what is going to happen when the delegates nominate the Republican nominee.
Please write what you think of what i wrote here.
