I've got your answer right hereSubmitted by zsh-ninja on Tue, 05/15/2012 - 15:31
Over the past 48 hours, I have felt like I've been watching a high-speed collision at half-speed here at the DailyPaul.
Let me articulate the mood in words (and forgive the vernacular):
What in the F$%# JUST HAPPENED??!!!
Well, as people try to cope with denial, anger, profound confusion, Benton-rage, a sense of betrayal, etc... and they struggle to conceptualize what, exactly, is going on, let me tell you how I will remember the sequence of events playing out.
On a sunny spring morning, the second week of May in the year 2012, while thousands busied themselves with the tasks and missions that they had self-delegated, for the purpose of winning an increasingly vicious, growing War for Freedom, their idealogical leader, Dr. Ron Paul, sits down to breakfast with his earthly opponent, if ever he had one, a Mr. Ben Bernanke, one of the most public members of the powerful international elite. What he and his arch-nemesis discuss over breakfast is unknown to all but the two. Main stream media reports that when asked, the doctor, always known for being extremely straightforward, just cryptically replied that the two had a “somewhat” open discussion. What this means, no one knows.
What is known, is that less than one week later, mere days after his ground-troops proved to the world that the contentious battle for delegates to the 2012 Republican National Convention was far from over, his campaign manager publicly and effectively conceeds the nomination to his opponent, noting both the need for civility (whilst engaging in a revolution) as well as citing wildly inaccurate delegate counts and baffling even his most loyal supporters for reasons unknown.
unless, of course his campaign proverbially shoots its own self in the foot, and then goes on to pull off a win in Tampa, in which case people will be speaking of the strategy's brilliance for the next couple of millinia ; )
