Republican Delegates Can Ignore Any “Committment” to Vote for Mitt Romney, and Can Instead Vote for Ron Paul If They Want

ALL Republican Delegates Can Vote Their Conscience

We noted last week that it’s still possible for Ron Paul to score an upset win over Mitt Romney.

Indeed, the nonpartisan Center for Voting and Democracy (CVAD) reported last December that the the legal counsel for the Republican National Convention said delegates can vote for whoever they want at the National Convention:

As set out in the Rules of the Republican Party, delegates have the ability to vote according to the delegates’ preference, even if that is contrary to the outcome of each state’s primary. According to one source, the legal counsel for the Republican National Convention in 2008 stated: “[The] RNC does not recognize a state’s binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose.” Thus, if a delegate were to challenge his or her ability to vote as a free agent, he or she would have grounds under Rule 38.

Since Romney now owns....

the Republican Party. Screw them. Vote your choice even if it means being "kicked out" of what is now nothing more than a rubber stamp for Romney and his scummy progeny.

Lets Goose Them!

That ruling is equivalent to the Jury Nullification Law just passed in New Hampshire!

Let's Call it GOP Rules Nullification! We are either a democratic Republic and can vote our conscience or we are not!

It is time for that information to come out.

I don't want to live in a Corporate Fascist State that will tell me who to vote for on the nomination or election level.

That is each and everyone's unalienable right. These thugs have taken away enough of our rights and imposed themselves way too much in our lives!

Bump!
