Why This Delegate System was Designed This Way: It WORKS!Submitted by Octojofo on Sat, 05/12/2012 - 11:17
When I talk to a supporter of Romney, Santorum, Obama--anyone besides Paul--when I ask them to stick to issues and tell me why it is they are supporting so-and-so, well, it's usually pretty disappointing and it makes me realize why this system is in place!
The general voting public has no idea what the issues are, or the history, or the moral dilemmas, or the brinkmanship that is taking place in politics. But we do. The Delegates who will ultimately decide our nominee, DO. Even Romney or Santorum Delegates! The Delegates are more interested and THEY know the issues--and are more clear on what the ramifications are--of who we end up putting into office!
THEY spend the time, THEY do the research. THEY spend long hours reading and following every move! And THIS is why this system is in place. Our clever (and probably somewhat elitist) forefathers didn't want to give up all the power to an uncaring and uninformed mob! (That would be a Democracy!)
So, when I hear we're "stealing," or "commandeering" or "taking over" the election, I say,
"YUP! Sure are! So what!?
"YOU? A lousy, what? 20-25% of the people? ...are gonna tell the rest of us who to vote for!?"
And I repeat,
"Yup, darn right! That's the way the system was designed!"
Remember a few things here: Every year we are told who we will vote for. Every year it is the same people who decide for us. The elite, through means such as the CFR or Bilderberg Group and the press who they own! This is now finally discussed in the mainstream press after years of denying they existed at all!
Make no mistake: These people are not the 1%ers! They are infinitesimally smaller than that, yet THEY are the ones! They, who meet with all of our presidential hopefuls and banking elite behind closed doors (wholly illegal by the way) to decide who will be put in front of the American public, to vote upon, as if we had a choice. THEY tell us that one man is unelectable and another is not. THEY, through the press, show only what they want and hide away away the real truth. They who give millions to both Obama and Romney to make certain they are the ones we have a choice between. (Controlled opposition.)
So which will it be? Who do you think should decide who will be on the ballot? The unseen international ruling elite? The press? The GOP? Or the Delegates who were put in place to do exactly that? The one's who spent unpaid and untold hours, weeks, and months researching the candidates and going through this process to insure that the best man for the job is put forward? The answer should be obvious.
And, I am quick to remind them that this is the "Ron Paul Revolution", after all! It's not just a metaphor! The revolution doesn't have to be violent, but, by our sheer numbers and force of will, we WILL take our government back from these banker owned and controlled politicians!
And finally, I remind them that the first American Revolution was not supported by the masses. That a much smaller percentage of Americans were responsible for our independence in 1776, much smaller than we have today, striving for ours, through the Ron Paul R3VOLution!
