North Carolina GOP State Convention Has A Resolution To Support Mitt Romney. Help.

The NC GOP has approved a resolution at the state floor that they endorse candidate Mitt Romney for president in 2012, even with Ron Paul still in the race. Essentially labeling all Paul supporters as opposition to the party they're currently in. If passed, it implies that Paul supporters aren't welcome in the NC GOP. Not to mention, by aiding Romney, they're breaking rule 11 of the national GOP rules approved in 2008 and are at risk of losing all delegates to the national convention.

"Resolved, That regardless of any differences we may have had in the candidates we supported in the Presidential primary, Republicans will unite in working to elect Mitt Romney as President of the United States in 2012.


Rule 11 is broken:
Entire state party endorsement = aid.

Not to mention the Guilford county chairman has been robo-calling everyone, endorsing Mitt Romney, which is even worse...but that is being reported on currently.

We've contacted as many people as we can but it's still not getting enough attention. If it makes it to the convention floor the majority, whom are all Romney, will gladly vote for it and against any claims that the resolution violates rule 11 and is unfair to anyone who doesn't support Romney.

It has gotten VERY ugly in North Carolina. Our state GOP is horribly corrupt and will do whatever it takes to block out Paul supporters. Most of them aren't even very passionate about Romney, but simply hate Paul supporters so much that they have done everything to kick us out of the party. Please help us.

What I find beyond moronic about current GOP members nationwide

is that the majority of these people are fighting tooth and nail to protect the establishment, and they don't even like Romney.

They are so wrapped up in the contest of who's 'junk' is the biggest, and who has more muscle, that the future of the country, the only issue, has been thrown into the back seat.

Like whining children, it's all about who the winner of the fight is.

And so they battle unwittingly, and mindlessly, on behalf of those very people that created this economic mess through corruption and greed.

And the irony of stupidity is - I bet half of those GOP morons went to a Tea Party rally somewhere too - Lol.

Hence the symbolism

of the upside down Elephant? Relates very well Mike.Lol.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Spoke To A Desert Storm Vet Yesterday

Once in a blue moon I go to Wally World (Wal-Mart)
Yesterday I went, and there was a Vet selling raffle tickets. I always buy one. So I dig a dollar out of my purse, walk up to him and hear him telling a lady he served in Desert Storm..and he knew her brother. When she leaves..I start talking to him.
He thanked me for my donation, and I dug a Ron Paul brochure out of my purse and ask him if he would vote for the only Vet running. He replied the primary was over. I said true..but the election is far from over.
I told him Ron Paul is gaining in delegates, people are waking up, the media is blacking it all out. He again replied..the primary is over.
I ask if he would take the brochure and read it..he looked around like he was nervous..started to figit and said no. I ask him if he knew something I didnt...he said yes. I ask if he would enlighten me..he refused. And then he ask me in a low voice to please put the brochure away. I just held on to it and looked at him funny.
He starts telling me hes a local member of the GOP and Ron Paul is NOT ALLOWED TO BE DISCUSSED AT ALL. Then he ask me if I would please just leave. I did.
I hear a lot of this here in western NC. Just thought you should know.

That was surreal

Time for a sign wave as close to that table as you can!

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!



It's a stategy to out all of you

Be patient, keep the faith. They are violating the rules and are risking seating their delegates. Very stupid. They are desperate.

They are doing this so Paul

They are doing this so Paul supporters will expose themselves so they know whom not to elect as delegates. If rule 38 is upheld, I say let them hang themselves, and stay in stealth mode. Have a Newt or Santorum supporter expose their fraud. Some of them still hate Romney.

The Resolution Is Silly And Pointless....

The take away for you is that the GOP does not welcome Paul or his supporters and thus RPers should join the Libetarian Party after this election cycle.

Agreed. If RP does not get

Agreed. If RP does not get the GOP nomination, we should consider a mass "leave the party" day. We can grow the libertarian party enough to get on debates and win. The only thing to consider is that in many states we are now a force in the GOP and we might not want to give that up.

All that being said, I'm planning to WIN in Tampa.

NO!!! We cannot let this

NO!!! We cannot let this charade continue!

Under fake words like "Unity", this corrupt establishment would justify falling in line & getting behind Weird Al Yankovic or Leon Trotsky if they wanted to.

Considering GOP establishment are all anti-American Trotskyist to the core, it's hardly surprising. Their sole goal is seeing to completion destruction of US Constitution & seeing the fall of Constitutional Republic. It's nothing short of a rallying cry for Paul supporters in North Carolina. In fact, with Reince Priebus actions, expect it to be official stance for almost all remaining state conventions from here on out.

This is at such a high level that over & above grassroots army, Ron Paul himself needs to address this issue head-on & expose it in the open. The Primary process is NOT OVER yet. There are 2 major candidates running in the race & a person of Ron Paul's stature needs to attack this Rule 11 egregious violation.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

So zero Paul people at the NC

So zero Paul people at the NC Convention? What happened?



This makes me sick

And filled with rage. Thanks for sharing though. I really hate these people. I mean really hate. I know it isn't good to harbor that feeling towards another but this is getting to be too much.

It's like a caged animal that fights back against you when you are trying to set it free. "Hey dumba$$ why are you biting me, I'm trying to help you!"

You have to try and get the

You have to try and get the majority of Paul supporters to show up and vote it down and as Blonduxo, just commented make your own motion. If you do not have the majority keep making motions to amend resolution until it is so diluted and everyone is confused.

No, this will just identify

No, this will just identify Paul supporters in a state where we may need to adopt the stealth delegate mode.

I Know I Should Not Do This

But Im going to.
With about every NC Ron Paul supporting group I could find..I tried to warn the people in NC that 'they' where going to pull something. I was called..mostly in private..a few choice names..told it couldnt happen..they was all over it...the GOP would never allow anything to happen here.I even called Texas and told someone about 6 months ago..some young sounding guy in Pauls office..but I was thanked..then dismissed.
Im to old and it would be to petty of me to do this..but Im going to say it anyway
Ive been hearing rumor..talk,...Perdue made some type of deal with Obama..what..I dunno...but she is the Gov. here...and to much of this state loves her...they arent even really talking about the lotto money making its way into the pockets of county governments, or the fact another rumor has it..some was sent to Obama 2012..Ive let my concerns in this matter be known...I did what I could..but you all should find and follow the money trail

I believe in Hope & Change..I Hope the government will Change

NC does not have strength of

NC does not have strength of RP support that other states do. NC is Neo-con to the core, and all they do is watch fox news.

Submit your own resolution to Platform Committee or

Submit a resolution that supports a fair and open process that reinforces adherence to the rules as to how the process in NC is by rule to unfold, cite the important of following the rule of law, why it is important to follow the rules and to not change them to favor one candidate or another, give examples of how changing the rules to benefit one candidate over another is detrimental to the process, smacks of favoritism, etc. etc you get the idea.

Or during the debate on the rules at convention move an additional rule that no resolutions will be entertained that endorse one candidate over another as that nullifies the process to which all who will have gathered there to perform.

That is not the business of the convention. The business of the convention is to select state committee reps to national, approve the state platform and select dels/alts to national. Such a move is not germane and would be out of order to the business and purpose of the day.


The private party is at it again. I hope that the Ron Paul campaign is aware of this resolution.

North Carolina

It would help if you could find and nominate your own GOP chairman-if you have the numbers for Ron Paul. Every delegate has got to be there. If there were enough you would have the votes and very important if you can get a good chairperson with a good parliamentarian. Organize- try to get a plan- but the numbers help. I trust there are many among you that now know the rules...Everyone should have a good lift from Maine and Nevada this past week-end. If you have the delegates and they show up and if you can nominate and chair and get the votes----and make sure those votes are counted accurately-then that is what it takes. God bless...the rest of us are with you!-Maine


They can vote to support Mitt Romney all they want

I'm still going to the convention and I'm not supporting Romney. No way, no how.

Who's going to enforce the

Who's going to enforce the rules against the enforcers?

Right-minded John Q. Public with the help of Almighty God!!

That's who!

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.


Nobody's asked the obvious question:How are we,those of us who are not in North Carolina,supposed to help?

Some see things as they are and say why,but i dream things that never were and say why not. Robert F. Kennedy

it's smells like desperation

I'm not up on all the rules, but I follow as best I can and this just seems like they are throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks.

The NC GOP would actually support an unlicensed barber (Mitt)

when their state laws specifically require such a license to cut hair?


They would be considered an in kind contribution and is illegal

Thats worth millions of dollars, and even though it's a private convention, the contribution is to Romney, not the delegates.

It would be Against FEC regulations and they will get fined and most likely penalized by the National GOP


What is the status of the petition against National GOP chair? He is the one setting the example for NC. I'm from Florida and it is the same story here, it is just not fair.


I smell Romney attorney's.

And RNC scum.
