RUMP, n. A legislature having only a small part of its original membership and therefore being unrepresentative or lacking in authority. American Heritage Dictionary

The Red Dirt article referred to this as a rump convention.

Tell Cromwell

that it had no authority ;)

This is GREAT !

Way to go Oklahoma....

YESS!!

NEWS CREW JUST SHOWED UP!!!!!

Oh and they ate all the pizza. LOL!

Huge Mistake... may end up with Romney dels. from that CD!

This body should have chosen delegates to replace failed CD delegates stemming from the upcoming congressional district convention! The party will fail to call that caucus, then send their own choices to the RNC.

The RNC, in the absence of delegates always opts for the party choice!!!

To make sure of their selections, they should have replaced the state chair, which they very likely have the power to do.

they elected a chair...

he is a paul supporter but im not sure if he will be the permanent one but he was the permanent for the convention sooooo....

if anyone could clarify for me it would be much appreciated!

As I understand it...

... JSBach was talking about firing the Chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party (an ongoing position), whereas you are referring to the Chairman of the Oklahoma State Convention (a position that only lasts until the Convention ends). Two different positions, two different people.

ahh

ok thanks

We might end up having to do without those 3 CD-1 delegates...

... but let's keep some perspective. It is now 9:45pm Central Time, and these folks have been here since 7-8am. They are standing in a dark parking lot, with tired, cranky kids, and do they have anywhere to use the restroom? They have already gone above and beyond, and deserve our thanks. Thank you for your dedication, Oklahoma Liberty patriots!

Oklahoma governor booed - video?

Just read about this: http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/111947.html

I would love to see video of this!

Sorry, I haven't been keeping up with this thread today OR the live stream, so if this has been discussed/posted before, my apologies.

Steve

Woohoooo!

Adjourned!

Ron Paul! Ron Paul! Ron Paul!

We need to give the Ustreamers all our deepest gratitude.

I actually feel tears in my eyes thinking about my fellow Ron Paul supporters and all their work with these streams.

This is why I am a RP supporter. I'm in good company.

Let's give them a round of applause!!!

Does anyone have a phone link to this body?

Please post of inform them of the need to elect replacement delegates for the CD in question. The RNC WILL allow delegates the party supplies in the absence of choices made by either the CD or by this body!

Moved indeed.

I am so moved by what I am seeing right now in Oklahoma. I could just bust from pride. These poor folks have been at it since this morning. And now they are standing outside, in the dark, with kids, tired, (but not hungry thanks to the Daily Paul.. ROCK!) and yet they are still there, calm, orderly, professional and GETTING BUSINESS DONE!!!!!

And now the video guy just said "we are still here, and will STAY here till business is done. All for liberty."

I can't stand it. LOL!!

They can replace the State party Chair!

Where are the rules folks in this (RP) convention?!

In most states the state convention is the highest authority in the state party. EVERYTHING CAN BE CHANGED IF IT IS A LEGAL CONVENTION!

Fire the state chair and make him argue against it in court! The best way to uphold the rules and prove you are a valid convention!

These folks are stumbling over their new found power and not realizing they can change much, including deciding the rules if they have a super majority of those on the floor... assuming they have a quorum!

I read below that they passed a rule...

... that would allow County Chairs to seek to fire the State Chair. Going further than that would probably not be prudent. I do agree with you, though, about selecting a replacement CD-1 delegate slate.

It is dark and people are tired and need to get their kids home. They should do the minimum that they still need to do (including the CD-1 slate), then call it a night.

not good?

Are they really doing a bad job? I cant see the stream. They need to make sure they get this done right. We don't get a 2nd chance at this.

They need to reconsider the motion...

Making a mistake... somebody tell them!

They need to choose replacement delegates from the CD in question, so that if the CD fails to choose, the RNC will recognize the alternate set of delegates from the state!
Been there done that!
No delegates to replace missing ones, the RNC credentials committee will default to the state party choice!!!
Somebody better tell them!

Romney supporters on internet

Romney supporters on internet wisdom via Mitt Romney Central:

clb2012now: Paul supporters wouldn't want to give up the internet.

Don: Paul supporters forget we can't go back to isolationism because our Internet is connected to everything even our water and electricity

Chris: Don, so long as they control the internet, they are good.

In other words: The internet is no good because of Ron Paul and must be controlled. The first amendment is dangerous.

There are some nasty people

There are some nasty people over at that Romney forum. Sad.

Yep

Ask one question, even civil, and they ban you instantly. They cannot handle debate.

Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down.

A line from the top of that
