Doug Wead: How the GOP shut down Ron Paul in IllinoisSubmitted by northstar on Fri, 06/22/2012 - 14:38
Some of the published reports coming out of the Illinois GOP State Convention are so factually handicapped that this firsthand, documented, insider account from Harvey Bluedorn, New Boston, Illinois, should be read by any serious historian of the Liberty Movement. It is important for us to cheer on our victories but it is also important for us to read the stories of those who are hurt by insider games and to let them know that they are not alone, that we appreciate their efforts. Their tormentors may sometimes own the day but we own the future.
