We will face a tough decision in TampaSubmitted by ronpaulpeace on Fri, 05/18/2012 - 16:31
-> a) Follow Ron Paul and his non confrontation towards the GOP to secure that Rand Paul can be nominated 2016(and/or a concession towards our platform)
-> b) Do everything to prevent a Mitt Romney nomination for the cost of dividing the party and a open fight inside the GOP towards 2016 if we fail at securing the nomination for our hero Ron Paul.
The campaign is clearly following option a) cause they don't call the GOP openly out on their Fraud. Ron Paul himself stated that he doesn't plan to stir the convention up.
The absence from Rand Paul from the campaign trail indicates that he doesn't want to be associated totally with his dad giving him the freedom to appeal to other parts of the GOP.
Is there a middle way (besides hoping we win Texas and California)?
What do you think we should do?
I assume that the campaign does mean it how they say it and are not up to a deliberate tactic to mislead the establishment and Romney.
Unfortunately, barring something very unforeseen, our delegate total will not be strong enough to win the nomination. Governor Romney is now within 200 delegates of securing the party’s nod. However, our delegates can still make a major impact at the National Convention and beyond."
->Their actions in not going all out with lawsuits etc. support this belief. Why do it if they think it wont matter anyway.
