Massachusetts GOP upholds election of Ron Paul delegates!

Wow, this is surprising...

"The Ron Paul supporters from Mitt Romney’s congressional district whose delegate selections were jeopardized by a ballot challenge are going to the Republican National Convention after all."

I'd like to just point out

that this DOES NOT apply to ALL the delegates in Massachusetts, according to the article. This is only in regards to the fifth district delegates who should have been ours anyways. As far as I know the rest of the delegates have not been re-instated. Correct me if I am wrong.

Small victory in rule of law. There should be more delegates.

District 4 caucus had handed out stickers to Romney supporters to afix to the ballots. There was a definite age division with the old line republican and only 30 ballots difference. If memory serves me correctly the votes were 130 to 110 for the Romney Slate. I had asked other supporters to get a head count of the room there were by my count two hundred and seventy in the voting room. Now you had to check in with the town voting log to make sure you were a registered Republican. Involvement is important. I congratulate the delegates and suggest http://mises.org/books/thelaw.pdf before Tampa. Then the issue becomes Rule 38 and voting rights act. I would like to remind people that Romney lost by 18 points to Kennedy in the Senate race. Pay attention to rule 38 and voting rights act. I think Tarpley is wrong Romney not getting the first ballot Rove thinks he can get Jeb to head the ticket. Paul a Neo-con shill? THE ONLY ONE WHO BEATS OBAMA WITHOUT STEALING IT IS PAUL. This is a big step in admitting the mistakes of Empire financial and moral fall. We live in interesting times kicking the can down the road is not working.

18/27 = 67% for Paul and 100% in Romney's home district!

That's awesome!

It seems the people that know Romney best don't care much for him. The general public has no clue who Romney really is and what he has really done since they have been deceived and misled by the mainstream media propagandists and Republican Party, but the informed delegates sure know who Romney is.

We want them all !

Of course the Massachusetts Republican Party’s Allocation Committee upheld the election of six Paul loyalists who defeated Romney backers at a 5th Congressional District caucus in April , they really had no choice .

The Massachusetts Primary of March 6 was a ' binding ' primary , but all of the reports we have been hearing lately about RNC's rule # 38 and bound delegates not being legally bound to any one candidate may change all of this in Tampa in August . Maybe the feable minded RNC thinks that if they throw a crumb of 18 delegates to the Paul supporters , then we will quit . No , there's 27 delegates in Massachusetts to be had and we will get as many as we can by August !

one tiny step in the right direction,..

wake up GOP.

Yes..

Woohoo!!!

wow....

this is f'ing huge! Romney's home state!

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I'm just well-informed

An Impromtu Poem for Massachusetts...

Massachusetts!—well, what do you know,
They never gave in, didn’t take no.

They fought a fight deemed lost,
Well, we now know who’s the boss.

More tough times ahead, one long and hard,
But they won’t waver, they’ll keep their guard.

With every success we move to cross the line
and win back the United State as it was originally designed.

We won’t let them keep nor take us there,
It’s the United States we are fighting for here.

I said it before and I’ll sing it now
I'll sing this forever to all my Ron Paul pals:

Oh, what wonderful news from this lot
Our hope sings loud for defeated we are not.
We need others with such remarks
To build and build the joys in our hearts.
Sing it Massachusetts you deserve it true
You’re the shining example of red, white, and blue.

I say: if you can't make it better, don't make it worst!

Can we get a haiku

while you are at it!!!

Massachusetts still has problems-

Not counting provisional ballots and forcing those elected to sign affidavit to vote for Romney (which some apparently intend to do).

Delegates: Sign with their other hand...

Follow the RNC RULES, read the RULES. If you need to sign some coerced document, sign with your non-writing hand. Affidavits to usurp Rules are illegal, period.

Sign with your other hand and end your signature with an "x" symbol at the end, disguise the "x" so not immediately obvious.

Delegates are being coerced: if the RULEs required delegates to vote the popular way--if RNC Rule 38 has no standing--would the Romheads need to force people to sign anything?! That's the point, the focus of the argument.

The fact that they are making people sign something means they are forcing people to act against the RNC Rules by holding them to an AFFIDAVIT. Again, if the RULES REQUIRES DELEGATES TO VOTE IN ACCORDANCE WITH POPULAR VOTES THEN WHY WOULD ANYONE NEED TO SIGN AFFIDAVITS/CONTRACTS/PLEDGES to vote for Romney? The only reason for the affidavits/voting contracts is when the RULES rule in Romney's disfavor!

Get to the convention, follow the RULES and vote according to how the RULES dictate. Let them try to trial you for not breaking the Rules with their illegal affidavit. Download the RNC Rules and follow them and keep telling everyone that you "will follow the Rules" and only that.

I say: if you can't make it better, don't make it worst!

bullying doesn't work here anymore !

Listen , Affidavits are illegal in this election for the plain and simply reason that The Republican Party , like the Democratic Party are Private Organizations , thereby they are not recognized through Federal Election Laws . Do you see what's happening here people , we have the establishment on the run . They are these bullies that have been coercing the voting public for decades now and all of these threats are coming from them as they are running away for the hills !

Vote up or shut up

If they don't abstain on the first ballot or vote for Ron Paul, it is all for naught. The Ron Paul people have been too silent about what the strategy is. Legally, I see we have justification for proving the delegates have the right to vote for whomever they want on the first ballot, regardless of the beauty contest results, but I am disappointed they have not prepared us for legal challenges should our delegates be unseated at the convention for exercising their right to vote as they see fit. Is Ron Paul simply a shill for Romney as Webster Tarpley suggests? From what I have seen of late, that is not a stretch. Ye shall know them by their fruits.

What makes Tarpley so darn wise ?

Webster Tarpley , a frequent guest of the Alex Jones InfoWars internet show suggests that the whole idea of the Ron Paul campaign was to get Dr. Paul's son , Kentucky Senator Rand Paul into Romneys Vice-Presidential slot . Tarpley also goes on to say that Ron Paul is the Enemy of Humanity . Jones obviously didn't agree with Tarpley .

Listen folks , the Ron Paul Revolution or lately called the Liberty Movement is a strong force and getting stronger by the week . Like the 2007 Tea Party movement which was created by the people for the 2008 Ron Paul presidential run , the Tea Party has been infiltrated and in some cases , transformed by the GOP into some sort of NEO-CON tea party rather then the true Tea Party Grassroots movement .

Point here is the PTB are attempting to do with the Liberty Movement as they had done to the Tea Party Movement , and that is Infiltrate from within and have it transforn and maybe in some instances , have it destroy itself because this is how much of a threat the Liberty Movement is . I really don't care what Tarpley has to say about the Ron Paul campaign because we as Ron Paul supporters have said all along , We Vote for Ron Paul or We Vote for No One , and that includes a unlikely Romney - Rand Paul ticket . I will vote for Johnson before I would ever vote for the establishment's 2 party system .

Or you shall know them

by 30 effin years of track record. A shill - really? When you commit half your life to a cause and sustain the ridicule and laughter Ron has sustained - never wavering in his beliefs "going along to get along" - then come talk to us. Until then I vote for the shut up part.

why should we give secrets to you...

Are you a delegate for Paul? You're obviously not a Paul supporter and knows nothing about him to call him a "shill for Romney." Hold on let me put on my laughing face and say, "Ha ha ha." So you think we bought your back side BS.

Like we'll tell you every secret plan. The question is who are you "shill[ing]" for here?

You call all the battles Paul delegates and supporters won SILENT?!!! Err, have you watched any of the delegates selection battles available free on the Internet? "Silent" and "shill", I'm having a HARD TIME believing you know anything about us or what we are fighting for!

The delegates know the *RULES* and *will act according to their conscience* in full accordance with the Rules, that's all we'll say.

I say: if you can't make it better, don't make it worst!

Legal action is being taken!!

Here's the best news we've had since this thing started. There is a team of SOLID Ron Paul attorneys at 'Lawyers for Ron Paul' who will be filing a case in a Federal court on Monday to expose the GOP and the fraud and to further protect all of us going to Tampa!

Please help to spread the word everywhere - especially to dels/alts to the convention.

If anyone has witnessed shenanigans or fraud at their local/county/state levels, please go to this website (http://www.electionfraudremedy.com/) and tell your story so the lawyers can add it to the class action suit (it's pro bono/free all the way).

You will be helping to make history and to turn this entire convention on it's head!!!

We are WINNING now!!!

To suggest that Ron Paul is a "shill" for Romney

Is to discount his entire career of being the only honest man in politics. He will not sell out.

The dirty little fact

is that ALL of the posts and threads which question Ron Paul's campaign actions are EXACTLY THAT.

They are back-handed slaps in Ron Paul's face, accusing him of throwing the election to Romney, as if he is a shill.

I, for one, have had way more their crap than I can take.

Momentum - It feels like

we are regaining momentum again after the setback we had with that untimely email. Lets think and hope that this movement is just going through fibonacci retacements and Elliot waves right now. This is definately a possibility - seriously. Human emotions, people waking up, all has to do with emotion and universal laws. God's will is at work, and thats a force that canNOT be stopped. We need to keep praying. Pray for each of our brothers and sisters in this revolution, and for the enemy's eyes to be opened and heart to be touched. We can do this... God helps us the more we pray. Remember, it's about a critical minority in many ways.

This is great

I am still hoping he wins the nomination in Tampa. Also do not go to Tampa and roll over for the GOP and Romney. Fight and raise hell, abstain and or vote for Paul. Even if the Paul campaign says to do what the GOP says, ignore them and do what you want.

"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

Yes, but no booing, slovenliness or violence

Our movement is on the ascent and we must take advantage of this opportunity. We must be resolute and advance our cause without apology. AND we must also do this while presenting it in the best light. We must dress properly, be courteous and professional and make our case articulately as we can. Being a rowdy bunch of interlopers is going to set us back bigtime.

I haven't seen any Ron Paul

I haven't seen any Ron Paul supporter that has ever acted this way.

Nor have we broken anyones bones or dislocated anyones hips.

Who do you think you are fooling?

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Urgency and Perseverence

Its up to us now. Ron Did as much as he could. He was heroic keeping the flame of freedom and hope alive.

Let us do our job now.

Let us become

1. University professors

2. Senators, Presidents

3. Filmmakers

4. Bankers

5. Intelligence Officers

Let us make our way through the power structure and free ourselves and our land from Neocon tyrants.

Let us not give up. Its a long hard slog ahead.

Surprising?

Notice the timing, i.e. after the June 5th primaries on which the voting machines gave the victories to Romney. LoL Personally, I think the GOP establishment just doesn't think it needs the delegates anymore so the political fight (more lawsuits anyone?) was unnecessary. Regardless, it IS good news whether qualified or not.

Ditto

"... Personally, I think the GOP establishment just doesn't think it needs the delegates anymore ..."

I hope we surprise the hell out of 'em with stealths.

One further point. As a

One further point. As a result of the GOP's shenanigans during the primary season, GOP officials at various levels will likely be facing significant lawsuits. Who will be expected to pay some of the bills, Romney? Personally, I think Romney is heading into the GOP's national convention wounded enough to raise some doubt about his financial ability to defeat Obama. * Sure, the RNC can raise a lot of money, but these primaries surely haven't helped the image of the RNC one little iota. We'll see.

* Mitt's net worth ~ $250M

This is great news!

Justice!

This is Great!

Keep up the Fight!

In the name of FREEDOM!
