The Campaign Never Had Intentions of WinningSubmitted by jefferson1743 on Tue, 05/15/2012 - 13:07
Now before you down vote me just on the title read my whole piece because I am providing facts to lead to my conclusion. I didn't reach this conclusion till I saw Benton's reaction to our reaction to yesterdays news blaming us for what is going down at state conventions. First I want to reiterate what many others on the site are saying and that is Benton, Shut Up Please!!
My first conclusion I have come to is the campaign was really never in it to win it. How do I come to that conclusion?
*Fact: After documented voter irregularities in many states including Iowa, Maine, Nevada, Etc the campaign had a chance to go on TV and blow it wide open. They didn't. In fact the voting irregularities in Iowa was brought to the attention by a Ron Paul supporter, and not the campaign.
*Fact: It has been known since the beginning that Ron Paul has not gone after Romney. Because of this there were questions in the media of back room deals. To this day Ron still has not challenged Romney to a 1 on 1 debate. Why?
*Fact: It doesn't cost much money to send a campaign member or two to these state conventions. If they had done so in places like Arizona then they could have helped us with the problems we have been having with the establishment (fake slates, convention chairs, political maneuvering, etc). They would have seen first hand we weren't causing the problems at these conventions and we were being respectful up until the heads started breaking the rules. Not only did the campaign not send people to places like Arizona but now Benton is going to Politico and blaming us for the problems there. He also blames us for "hostile takeover attempts in Idaho" Edit to Add: Romney thought the state conventions were so important that he sent his own son to the Arizona convention
*Fact: The campaign has not been near as aggressive as other candidates. Benton states today that "You need to give respect to get respect". How has that been working out Jesse? We and Dr. Paul have been respectful and it has gotten us nothing but the establishment and media taking a big dump on us. We can only get slapped in the face so much before enough is enough. Lack of aggression on calling out the media bias & establishment bias.
*Fact: A blatant break of Rule #11 was not only not pursued, but Benton went ahead and colluded with the RNC to make sure that nothing would become of it, to make it all go away...
*Fact: Benton all but announced the suspension of the campaign and yet wants us to send them more money even though the estimates are the campaign has anywhere between $1.8 and $4 million dollars in the bank.
At the end of the day not only do we have the establishment and media bias against us. But after seeing Benton's reaction today in Politico http://www.politico.com/n... we have to deal with the campaign taking a crap on us also.
I don't think the campaign ever had intentions of winning. Why? That can be debated. I have said for awhile now this movement is bigger than Paul. This movement is about an idea. I will still support the liberty movement throughout the various Pacs, however I will no longer support the campaign monetarily. I'm not gonna donate to someone blaming us for what is going on (or not going on) at these conventions.
I also wanted to hold out hope that the announcement yesterday was a chess move in a game of checkers. After reading about Benton today I have come to the conclusion that it is not reasonable to think this is the case. That is like sitting on the Titanic and thinking the Captains have a back up plan.
It's time to continue the revolution, keep taking over the states and do whatever it takes to do so. Don't let people stomp on us, we didn't take crap in Missouri and we won because of it. Don't look for support from the campaign, because as we have seen so far, we will not get it...
