Ron Paul Wins Louisiana Convention

Ron Paul sending 27 out of 46 Louisiana delegates to Tampa...

59% !!!

http://www.policymic.com/articles/9163/louisiana-convention-...

After Convention Chairman Henry Herford’s arrest, the delegates proceeded to elect a new chair and continued with the business of the convention. They reportedly elected a slate of 27 Ron Paul supporters to fill 12 of the 18 district delegate slots and 15 of 20 at-large delegate slots, before certifying the results with the RNC.

.....

In spite of the disorder at the Louisiana State Convention, many Republicans expressed satisfaction that they were able to select a strong delegation of constitutional conservatives to attend the national convention. “[This] proves that the Ron Paul Revolution is alive and well in the state of Louisiana.”

Ron Paul Wins Majority Of Delegates In Louisiana

As the Rules Chairman was arrested, jailed and had his fingers broken over the weekend in Louisiana, Ron Paul supporters elected a slate of 27 of 46 delegates in favor of Ron Paul. This gave the majority of delegates from Louisiana to the national convention in Tampa to Paul.

As normal

you will not see this on your evening news channel, especially Fox. They are going to wait until the National Convention and spring it on you all at once. Ha Ha Ha Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
Don't you just love it?

California Liberty Candidates!

God bless Louisiana!

They are heroes of Liberty!

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.

Villere is now officially a domestic terrorist.

He is now on camera as using and threatening to use force and violence to achieve political ends.

The off-duty officers who carried out Villere's orders, are also domestic terrorists.

Each of them should be treated appropriately as present law stipulates: indefinite detention, without a lawyer or trial, in a secret prison or Gitmo, or if the President deems it expedient...

5 states

Does anyone know if Paul has the 5 states needed to get on the ballot in Tampa? I heard on the news months back that he would have them and he would be there. They said it like they were upset. "well it looks like Paul will be there". lol Is this a first? I think he was not at the others.

Yes

He does and will be on the ballot in Tampa. I don't think I could name all the states in which he has a plurality, but he is probably nearing double digits if he isn't there already.

That is what I heard

On Fox news. That it looks like he will have the plurality in the five states need. From what I have heard on TV it is said the plurality of delegates. It doesn't say anything about bound or unbound.

"But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing." - Andrew Jackson

No need to say bound or unbound

because none of the delegates are bound at the RNC. I would suspect that RP now has about 14 states. Does he have the five states in order to get on the ballot in Tampa? He went by that a long time back.

I do not think that is correct

SO I am really hoping I am wrong but I do not think that everyone saying he is already on the ballot is correct and I do not think that thereal2012delegatecount is correct either on a couple things.

Here is why- The only states RP has "won" is Maine, Iowa, Minnesota. Now I was hoping to add LA to this list after last night's reports but it sounds like they are trying to seat the delegates selected by the first chairman? Even adding LA thats only 4 without another state victory I can come up with.

I do not think people are realizing that when the rules say "win the plurality of delegates in 5 states" it is not saying that the majority of delegates have to be Ron Paul supporters. It is saying that he has to have the majority of BOUND delegates in 5 states which is why although we have almost all of the delegates in MA, that is still a Romney win. And that is also why I believe everyone is incorrect when they say that we won Nevada.

I am not sure what states remaining are where the majority of delegates are picked and then bound by the conventions as most are bound by the primary proportional but to me this does not look good. Like I said I hope I am wrong but I cannot see, with a loss in Washington, where our other states are coming from. If not for the cheating, yes we would have won several other states, but it is what it is. Please tell me where I am incorrect here.

Oklahoma?

Oklahoma?

Are not the Staffers paid to for something?

Send an email to a Ron Paul staffer and ask for clarification. Then post it here.

Come on guys, they must be getting paid for something.

We are like the mechanism of a watch: each part is essential.

Staff are in it for

Staff are in it for themselves?

Sadly you are absolutely

Sadly you are absolutely correct. We have been cheated and swindled out of victory. At least our great campaign helped...oh wait...the management just lined their pockets...

That means Romney

Only has 19 of the delegates. LOL

Also a great big applause to the guy who had his hip dislocated and the other gentelemen who had his fingers broken and came back with a cain and limp to fight for liberty. These people are real patriots. The guy coming back with a cain and and all was like a story from the revolution.

"But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing." - Andrew Jackson

Story from the Revolution

I am seeing and hearing more and more things that remind me very much of the events that led to our Revolution. British soldiers occupying places they shouldn't, use of force when none was necessary, lack of representation of the people. Only difference is this is within the confines of our own party! Crazy!

"Severely Conservative".....

I beleive the RP folks have finaly and truely defined what it meens to be "severely conservative" ( as per Mitt's odd statement earlier this year) I'd call this pretty dogone "severe". I'd also say that if it was'nt for the apparent "Self Control" & Restraint on the part of the RP folks, Somebody (or somebody's) might have gotten a "Severe" a_s Whoopin.

Severely Conservative &..

Severe Ron Paul supporters !!
Ron Paul 2012!

Thinking of ya all.

Fantastic news :) Been real busy this week so I haven't been glued to the DailyPaul like usual, but I've been thinking about those 446 delegates all week and sending out positive thoughts. I have a friend in North Carolina who said on Facebook that they're having some success at getting the Liberty movement entrenched in the state party and getting some action on a few issues they want resolved, fracking being one of them. It's awesome being able to watch change as it happens, I'm hoping we can use your example down here to start getting some changes made in New Zealand.

Hope the guy who had his fingers broken (not sure if that was Henry Herford or someone else) is feeling okay.. that kinda **** would not fly here. Fight hard guys and girls!

hey Mitt, (Willard) ...

I think we can finaly grasp what it meens to be "Severely Conservative", how bout these Ron Paul supporters...willing to risk life and limb for the cause of LIBERTY.

Turning your backs

literally....on corruption was brilliant and justified. Kudos Louisianna Patriots and Thank you! Maine

Email this douche bag!

greg.mccune@thomsonreuters.com

This is the jerk who edited the story on the louisiana arrest for reuters and NO WHERE does it mention that the chair of the convention was arrested.

Instead he is simply "a ron paul supporter"

Of courese, no comments are allowed in the MSM either.

Can everyone PLEASE get this TWIT to change the story so it reflects reality

thanks

SOMEBODY NEEDS TO SEND THIS INFO TO THE GUYS AT www.thereal2012delegatecount.com

Ron Paul Revolution

According to this story

According to this story released an hour ago, LAGOP.com is saying, " No one was nominated for the final thirteen positions, which were left vacant and may now be filled by the state party’s Executive Committee. The positions were left open by a majority of the delegates participating in the convention in order to facilitate talks with Ron Paul supporters who refused to participate in the convention in order to protest state party rules requiring presidential candidates to approve delegates allocated to them."

"After the majority on the

"After the majority on the floor voted to unseat Villere as convention chair, he continued proceedings with a small minority of delegates. This release reflects the results of those proceedings."

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

True PATRIOTS!

Bravo to the older gentleman for taking one for the good guys. You sir gained a lifetime of good carma in that one patriotic action AND to the Ron Paul Supporters that turned their backs on the corruption at this convention AND did not deter in their effort to finish the job of taking back their country by continuing to finish the convention and reward the country by winning for Ron Paul, all of his supporters and this country! Bravo to all of you in LA! We are so very proud of our Freedom loving brothers and sisters!!
