Attention Alaska is not a victory yet. The convention is not over. It's in jeopardy of changing in favor of the establishment.Submitted by davidvernerinc on Fri, 05/11/2012 - 15:18
A lot of people have been holding the state of Alaska as a Ron Paul victory when the fact is it is not assured yet. Our convention was not adjourned but forced to stop until another day video 1 video 2. The hassles and shenanigans that happened in the credentials caused turmoil for those that had to wait until the day of the floor meeting to be seated making people become more disenfranchise. The blatant attempts by the establishment to bulldoze through issues has also left many with a sour taste in their mouth video.
With the SEC meeting that happened on the May 7th the information I have been given image makes it seem the establishment want to prevent the SCC meeting on June 9th to become the second meeting of the convention by preventing a quorum from happening (2/3 districts present, and 50%+1 of the delegates). Do to the unique situation Alaska is in, the majority of the delegates have to fly in to the convention to be physically present. It was brought up in the SCC meeting fallowing the the convention video that we could do some sort of teleconferencing or video conferencing. Of course during the SEC meeting many argued against doing this because there are no rules for it. Of course there are no rules against it.
I have also heard some disturbing rumors about Paul delegate selected for national convention being blocked because there isn't enough money in their accounts for withdraw for the national convention hotel. I haven't been able to confirm this on my own yet so I'm still classifying this as hearsay until I can get more evidence to confirm this.
It is not known if we might need help from the greater Paul community but the people that are upset with how things are going in Alaska and might ask for help before the second round happens. I'm self employed and have set up a deal myself to offer a small portion of my income (if I make anything this month) to help people be able to attend this convention. I'm also going to try and interview people in my local area about problems that the establishment has caused them trying to prevent them from being a delegate.
This is a big task for me since I'm flying to Chicago next week to document the NATO summit and the protests around it. I will post updates as more confirmed information comes forward and can I validate it.
I have also posted some videos from the floor meeting on this youtube channel. More will be uploaded this weekend.
