Ron Paul - Here's The Plan For Victory In TampaSubmitted by Patriot Press_U... on Sun, 05/27/2012 - 13:37

Passionate supporters, against all odds, are carrying Ron Paul, State by State, towards Tampa with a longshot belief that they can do what has not been done since the founding fathers penned their names to two documents that will forever live.
In the name of Liberty, The Constitution of The United States, and The Declaration of Independence, well meaning, highly enthusiastic Ron Paul supporters have already achieved impossible dreams at State Conventions.
These Patriots have raised the bar so high that they believe that if only they can convince delegates that they have the right to vote their conscience at the Republican National Convention in Tampa the delegates will unveil their stealth support for Ron Paul & the nomination will be theirs.
Under the radar some in the news media, others in political intelligencia have discovered a modern marvel of americana-Ron Paul supporters are right.
Ron Paul supporters have unleashed a powerful force, the most powerful force since the times of the founding fathers.
The chances for victory are as tenuous as the chances for success in the War for Independence against the mightiest military establishment on earth.
The delegates are under immense pressure from State Party forces to make them believe that they are subject to criminal penalties if they fail to vote, as committed, for whom they are told. Romney is gathering signed declarations of commitment from these delegates with reminders that they are bound by law.
Law,imagine that. Romney commits Felony crimes in pursuit of the nomination with fake delegate slates, bribes, and worse, yet, Romney is now reminding delegates of their legal obligations to vote for him.
Ron Paul delegates are savvy and artful. Videos appear, arguments spread across the social media, plans are made for Veterans for Ron Paul to demonstrate at the convention.
These efforts are successful in making so-called committed delegates want to vote for Ron Paul if only they could. These efforts cannot overcome a delegate's belief they will be criminally prosecuted if they vote their conscience.
Under the powerful spell cast by Romney that the delegates can be criminally prosecuted if they even attempt to vote for another candidate all creative efforts by Ron Paul supporters will fail except one.
With a hard copy of a Federal Court Order in their hands telling delegates they are free to vote their conscience without fear of any criminal penalty on the first ballot, then, and only then, will the unforseen nomination of Ron Paul happen.
Do you believe in miracles? It will not be easy. Contrary to some news reports Rule 38, The Unit Rule, cited as the key permitting delegates to vote their conscience, is not clear and free from ambiguity. Rule 38 contains a contradiction that could be pursausive in court to deny victory. There is language that suggests State Rules must be complied with. There is contrary language that suggests delegates are not bound. There is historical precedent that supports delegates are not bound. In 2008 a McCain delegate voted for Romney on the first ballot and the RNC counted the vote. There is more such precedent in our favor as well.
There is also a Legal Memorandum from RNC legal counsel that supports our legal position, but, a memorandum is not sufficient in court.
Especially given that we have a GOP Chairman who refused to remain neautral, the interpretation of the Unit Rule is perilous territory.
There will be risks in filing a Federal Court case seeking an Order that Ron Paul delegates be seated and that all delegates are free to vote their conscience on all ballots.
There were risks everyday in the War for Independence against that establishment army.
This much is certain, If we do not seek a Federal Court Order there is no chance to win. Ron Paul himself speaks of merely influencing the party at Tampa. His campaign manager has given permission for the party to raise funds for Romney.
Are you in it to win it? We have a chance to win this Federal case. There is no time to waste.
Each of us must find our own inspiration to continue to believe what most declare the impossible.
The impossible, would you really want it any other way?
