You Have To Read This Letter From The RNC About Us! It Will Make Your Blood Boil! Illinois & other conventions, BEWARE!


With the Illinois GOP convention taking place in Tinley Park Friday and Saturday, state party officials are on "alert" for shenanigans by presidential candidate Ron Paul's campaign.

From an e-mail sent to Republican National Committee members this week from National Committeewoman Ruth Ulrich:

"Dear RNC Member,

I know by now that you have probably heard about the state convention in Louisiana. I've never seen anything quite like it. I am attaching a link to an article that was good at explaining the highlights and another blog below that the really covers what was going on behind the RP antics. These antics were pre planned, practiced and intent on making a circus out of the convention. If your state is about to have a convention, please learn from our convention and be prepared! They will do anything, as we learned.

1. RP will try and "outlast" your other delegates by stalling, arguing, etc. anything to keep it going on until other delegates get angry or tired and leave. If they can keep you in session past the time on the contract with the facility, then they will cost you money as well.

2. They will try and replace your committee chairs and convention chair. If they can get the chair to "ignore" their shouted motions, then they believe they have the right to vote the chair out. If there are 20 shouting motions and point of inquiry, it will be easy for them to "justify" being "ignored" 3 times.

3. They will sneak people who aren't delegates onto the floor with the delegates and then those will start voting and making motions as if they were delegates.

4. They will try to take over your security. In our case, RP brought members of a militia to the convention (yes, I did say a militia). These people were outside trying to make the Louisiana State Police leave the premises.

5. If asked to leave the convention, due to their constant rabble rousing, they will resist arrest and do things to fake injuries. Regardless, they will take to the internet accusing you of everything including beating your dog. Doesn't even matter if you don't have a dog, in their eyes the end justifies the means.

6. They will try and disrupt by sneaking in microphones (better to shout you down with) will try and have their own convention in the same room to add to the confusion.

7. They know the first few people that get way, way out of line will probably be arrested and they have planned for this and have the next person in line ready to go on with their agenda. In our case, the second man who lay down and started screaming they broke his hip when police tried to walk him out, was NOT a delegate (nor was his hip injured or broken.) He was a Teller who removed his credentials. They then elected him "chairman." When the ambulance arrived for him, the next lady that took over was not a delegate either. She also used the "teller" trick.

8. They will tape everything, make sure people are there to do the same thing for you.

9. They are not above issuing threats, making sure you know that they know your private information, such as your cell # and home address. They will scream police brutality no matter how polite, calm and respectful your security is.

10. watch carefully your private accounts and the accounts of the party. Make sure you are not being hacked. One of Roger's accounts was hacked 5 times that day.

11. Plan to have several people who can stay on the internet trying to correct their lies. You just can't believe how many people they will have doing this online.

These people are working with the agenda of distracting, delaying and destroying. They want to steal the nomination for RP and if they can't they want to destroy the party. If you have any questions, please call me and I'll be glad to tell you anything I know to try and help."
Let Ruth know how you feel about her after reading this!

Blame your victim...

classic psychopathy

accuse your target of whatever you are doing so as
to put them on the defensive for what cannot be
defended as it never took place

you can view this little dialogue on many street corners
along Ocean Parkway on Friday evenings as the synagogues
let out and the attendees partake of their fave

accusing each other of outrageous concocted actions
that havent even happened except in the fantasies
of the accusers

itz a game, a verbal sport
and its like a mental disease
those exposed to it start copying it in their own

who has the yarlmuke concession ?

Sounds familiar...

They hate us just because we're free. LOL


All that madness from Ulrich, just because a few GOP goons might not get a delegate spot so they can get drunk with national figures.

Remember NV? Remember AK? Remember ME and LA, Ruth? Every time they tried to play hard ball, they ended up losing all their chairs. (As if they have a right to keep their chair.)

You're next, Ruth. Just sayin...

Militias are Constitutional...

...Police Aren't. Or they are as far as they are synonymous with Militia.

Here's the email I sent

I usually ignore their insane lies but this one really irked me!! So I decided hey why not....

Your email in reference to "Ron Paul Antics" was an absolute shameful lie. At the same time I guess I have to thank you for reinforcing my desire to continue in this liberty movement. Attacks such as yours stirs the fire even brighter and pushes the growth of the Ron Paul message further.

I thought to continue on, you know try and educate the ignorant. But you just can't educate stupid.

I concur with you 100% !!

I concur with you 100% !!

Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address.

You guys have been busy :) hehehahahaha muahahaha

The RNC is the most corrupt organization this side of the...

...Federal Reserve.

And they call US THE LIARS???

It's for reasons like THIS that I will not vote for their pretty-boy candidate.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

*shaking my head*


it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I had a FEELING this was coming from the top.

It was obvious here in Washington State that the fix was in.

They're just lucky we were very civil about it.

I thought maybe a little TOO civil. I was hoping for more fireworks from us Paul supporters.

But we DID get in our boos for Romney's son when he ran over his alloted speaking time.

Otherwise we got screwed from the beginning and ended up with a paltry 5 out of 43 delegates.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

My bloods not boiling.

I'm thinking you guys are doing a great job! Keeping those people up past their bed time or the next episode of Americas got talent is a little much, however, we are fighting for the RP r3volution. LOL

Wait a minute, I thought THEY were doing this,

not the RP people.

Well so much for the rest of the conventions, by now they know all the maneuvers and will show up in numbers.

I guess that's what happens when everything is talked about openly on the net. Some procedures should've been kept secret. I guess it wasn't addressed during the training of all those supporters. :-(

Put on your Thinking Cap...

Mine is attached with duct tape so it won't fall off when I get overly excited or angered!

I have read all the comments up to this time and would like to address some concerns and present my opinion.

Can't read the linked post? Here's how.
The script that loads the "subscribe" pop-up loads last. As soon as you see the text of the post appear, hit the x (or what have you) in the address bar to stop the page from further loading. The script does not run and the pop- up does not appear. You may now read the entire post.

It is a post by a "subscriber" named Kerry Lester in the blog section of Chicago's very own Daily Herald web page. Clearly this is not a news article, rather just a blog. One single unsubstantiated blog from an unkown blogger of no apparent significance.
The blogger never stated that he himself received any such letter and provided no evidence of its existence. No reference whatsoever in text or link.
In addition, the supposed author of the letter states, "I am attaching a link to an article that was good at explaining the highlights and another blog below that the (sic) really covers what was going on behind the RP antics".. No actual links were provided for either the article mentioned nor the...uh...blog.
This letter is alleged without proof of its existance. After much due dilligence and exploring many avenues, I have yet been able to verify the validity of this alleged letter.

I personally do not believe it is real at all. The text does not reflect what one might expect from an RNC official. Rather, every accusation presented mirrors the sentiment of many posts I have read right here on the DP, only with the names of the guilty and innocent having been reversed.
It appears to be a reversal of facts using our own lexicon.

Any outrage or anger directed at Ruth or the RNC based on this may be premature and unwarranted.

Indeed should this letter prove to be fiction presented by a Troll (Kerry Lester), it's purpose would be the same goal of any givin troll; to distract, confuse, divide and create enough anger that our Thinking Caps might fall off.
Hence the duct tape!

In closing, let me share my view of Trolls.
Q. What do they want?
A. A response.
A response is like air to a Troll, if they don't get any they die.
Please don't feed the Trolls!

In Liberty.

Kerry Lester works for the Daily Herald.

This is from the blog in question. It seems genuine enough:

"Kerry Lester is the Daily Herald's politics and projects writer, covering congressional, state and local politics through a suburban lens.

Kerry started her reporting career in the paper's Fox Valley bureau, covering education before she moved to the political beat. She's won first place awards from the Chicago Journalists Association and Inland Press Association. She is a five time Peter Lisagor Award finalist.

An avid runner, Kerry's training for her first Boston Marathon. Follow her on twitter at @kerrylester and "like" her Facebook fan page by clicking on her Facebook photo."

It would be worthwhile however to send an email to Ruth Ulrich to ask her if she is the originator of the letter and if it is genuine before correcting the facts contained in it.

The OP is no troll. She is a valued National Delegate from Nevada.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Yes, I saw that...

...and as you noted, it seems genuine enough.

As to whether Kerry is on the payroll or not I do not know, however this piece appears in the blog section.

Any actual reporting/journalism/blog content was limited to the following:

"With the Illinois GOP convention taking place in Tinley Park Friday and Saturday, state party officials are on "alert" for shenanigans by presidential candidate Ron Paul's campaign.

From an e-mail sent to Republican National Committee members this week from National Committeewoman Ruth Ulrich:"

That is all. Two sentences. The remainder of the blog is the text from the supposed letter.

My post was not directed at the OP, rather the validity of the supposed letter. But it now comes to mind could she have possibly won those prestigious awards with exceptional displays of journalistic skill as witnessed in this two sentence article? No and the post was not an article, it was a blog.

Liberty thrives on truth.

There has been no discovery of truth and so should be considered hearsay until we know it is valid.

Certain GOP/RNC are most certainly at odds already with shall we say...certain Liberty lovers...
I don't want to be throwing stones every time someone cries wolf...until I'm sure it is a wolf.
Then we can through them under the LIBERTY TRAIN !!!

I myself complain to the GOP (a lot ) when it is wrong.
I also praise the GOP ( very seldom ) when they are right.

If the letter is indeed proven to be actual, it will only strengthen my resolve and give me added reassurance that I did the right thing by becoming Precinct Committeeman-Lee County, Fl., Congressional District 14-64th Precinct.

Change is coming.

In Liberty.

They sure are awful worried

about a few "rabble rousers".
One mans rabble rouser is another mans freedom fighter. Just depends on whose side you're on. Gotta love the rhetoric.

I definitely smell lawsuits

You can't send out a letter like this and after breaking someones fingers and dislocating another person's hip.

I know a lot of smart lawyers are reading this, and the RNC has now PERSONALLY made themselves responsible. I smell lawsuits that can't be stopped. I smell criminal liability, because this is criminal.

I will be happy to donate to any suits on top of what is taken on contingency, and so will alot of us. This letter is quite a piece of evidence. YOU WILL NOT BREAK PEOPLE'S BONES AND INJURY THEM to get away with it! This is just getting bette and better. There IS NO TELLING WHAT YOU WILL FIND UNDER DISCOVERY, so much of this stuff is right out there. Don't they know this stuff is potentially felonies?

PS - to you smart lawyers - I'm curious - does suits at common law under the constitutional allow you to ask for criminal damage - ie private prosecution, under a federal grand jury? I believe I've seen it done - and unless I am mistaken - the split between civil and criminal law was emphasized after the constitution was written.

In any case, a federal grand jury needs to hear some of this.

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.

It wouldn't let me read it.

It said I have to be a subscriber. =/


These people are warning against THEIR OWN TACTICS! Now there warning that any supposed injuries will be fake! Talk about making ones blood boil!

This is the same as in Maine and Nevada, where the official state GOP brought in fake RP delegate slates, purposely overrepresented the number of delegates (always a clerical error), and then blame us for chaos. In there own plausible deniability scheme, they're telling the GOP minions to prepare to fight dirty, to stop us from winning fair and square.

Im telling you, putting everything we've done into the future of this party is an extremely questionable strategy going forward. They almost certainly can/will take whatever steps necessary to wipe out our gains as soon as it is politically feasible.

My friend wrote her an email

Dear Ms. Ulrich,

I'm writing you in regards to an email that was sent to a RNC member from you and forwarded to me. The text of that letter is below.

Ms. Ulrich, first off I'll let you know that I am a Ron Paul supporter. Because of that I'm aware this email may very well have been deleted by now. However, in case it hasn't, I'd like to offer up a little bit about myself and the people I know. I don't wish to argue the details about the Louisiana State Convention nor the candidate's platforms. I really doubt anything would be accomplished even if we tried. Instead, it might be better if I explained to you a little bit about the "why" in my political thinking. And forgive any grammar or composition errors if you would. I am a product of the public school system after all. :)

I can't speak for others. Well, maybe a few others whom I know more personally, but for the vast majority of those who support Ron Paul, I think their motivations are mislabeled. Hypothetically, if you were to use me as a template to better understand Ron Paul supporters, I would tell you that my main drive is liberty. Liberty to the limit of it not hurting others. A simple concept that is not so simple to implement. Of course any red blooded American holds their head up when they say liberty, but as you and I both know, there is something that divides us even though we share common ground. It is that divide which I feel is in itself mislabeled by Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich supporters alike.

For lack of a better term, that divide can be thought of as being "fed up with mediocrity." Let me explain, pretty much the main theme of the Republican Party is getting rid of Obama. Believe it or not (more likely not), Paul supporters aren't covertly trying to stop this. It is what we are presented with as the alternative that is what we take issue with. To us, Mr Romney, as good of a person as he may be if I got to know him, is "mediocre" at best. I look back on so many of the presidents who have come before and so much of their their track record does not reflect the words spoken during their run for office. Even my hero, Ronald Reagan, a champion of tax cuts was to me a large disappointment when it comes to the size government actually grew under his tenure. Trust me, I want to like Mr. Romney as a candidate, I honest to God do. I really like so much of what he says, and even in the Paul community that's not sacrilege, but when it comes down to whether or not we actually believe he will do what he says we don't even think he'll seriously try. Is that his fault? Partly, but it's compounded by the mediocre politicians who came before him.

In our view, Mitt Romney will not be better than Obama because we don't feel his policies will truly change from the current president despite what he says. When people ask me why I would not consider voting for Romney, and let me be perfectly clear that does not mean I will vote for Obama, I reply by asking, "If Obama switched parties today and became a Republican, would you vote for him?" That is how we Paul supporters feel.

I understand that there are many more facets to the disagreements between you and I. Nothing, especially in politics, is ever simple. However I feel compelled to write this because the label of Paul supporters wanting to just disrupt things, destroy the party, elect Obama, etc. is completely off base. It is an excuse for something I don't think many of you in the party understand. We are conservatives with conservative principles, and when we were presented with Mitt Romney we wanted better. We want to be part of the Republican Party, but the principles of limited government, low taxes and obeying the constitution have been compromised on far too often. It is because of that which has created this divide.

So in conclusion, I can accept that we see things differently. I see the "rowdy" conventions from a different point of view than you. You see the candidates' platform different than me. He said this, she did that. From all these "obvious" faults we claim the other to have, it's led us to become bitter and hardened. These views will remain the same for quite sometime and we will continue to feud on the how, when, where and what I'm sure. I'm a realist in that sense. If there is something I would hope you would at least consider because of reading this email, it would be what are the true motivations from the "rabble rousers." Maybe it's not all about the gold standard or foreign policy, and not about some superiority complex that creates a need to have our own way. Maybe, just maybe, it's about wanting to be a part of the Republican party and demanding better than just mediocre.


Ruth, regarding your husband Mark's affair with Vicki

Ruth, did you know Mark told Vicki he wished the tree would have crushed you (back in 2007)? Oops, sorry, did that slip out,lol.

Interesting Quote from her facebook on potential vote fraud

In light of her diatribe about "stealing" delegates

"Ruth Ulrich: an example of why voter ID is important. Also an example of why national popular vote is not a good idea."

I guess her view toward popular vote doesn't apply on the state level
