It is not going to happen. Ron Paul knows this. He does not WANT it to happen the way you think it will happen, and will not even ACCEPT the nomination if it iws done that way.

Now

THAT's what I'M talkin' 'bout!!!

For once media is right - Paul has long been done

and just wants to influence Romney.

The Critical Point of the Article

“The RNC does not recognize a state’s binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose, and the national convention allows delegates to vote for the individual of their choice, regardless of whether the person’s name is officially placed into nomination or not.”

Legally, which would take precedent over the other, the RNC’s rules or state laws that bind delegates to vote for certain candidates on the first ballot of the convention?

As IVN’s Kymberly Bays recently reported, this exact question has already been resolved at the US Supreme Court level: the national party’s rules take precedence over state laws because as a private organization and free association of individuals, a political party has the constitutional right to set its own rules and state laws interfering with that private process violate a political party’s First Amendment rights.

The Supreme Court case was not cited, but if it is accurately summarized above, then toss out any state binding. Importantly, the law will be on the side of any delegate who does so.

Yahoo Poll

of the 210,000 people who voted if people support his policies and in need of serious change 66% voted yes, 33% say hes too extreme. May 16, 7:40pm EST. Keep in mind Yahoo is apart of the MSM.

Yep, I saw that, voted w/66% a couple of hours ago.

Too bad there's not a way to comment "And Ron Paul will be leading the change as President".
