Anthony Terrell: Ron Paul 'Revolution' strikes at GOP state parties

What... Coverage for Paul Supporters on MSNBC.com ?
I couldn't believe my eyes so I had my wife confirm, but an article about the work of Ron Paul supporters was on the front page of MSNBC... entitled "Ron Paul 'Revolution' strikes at GOP state parties" Nice work, everyone!!!

June 21, 2012 | By NBC’s Anthony Terrell

Ron Paul’s third campaign for president may not lead to the Texas Congressman being nominated at the Republican Convention in Tampa this August -- notwithstanding a lawsuit filed by supporters in attempt to make that happen -- but, from Maine to Alaska, the “Paul Revolution” has swept state Republican parties.

Out of the national spotlight, Paul activists have mastered obscure local party rules to win key positions of power at state conventions, infiltrating the Republican establishment across the country, including in the key swing states of Iowa and Nevada.

Anthony Terrell is the embed reporter that traveled with Ron Paul during the primary season. He's better than most.

PLEASE do a better job than we did in Washington State.

I (a delegate) am still emberrassed about our result here.

Five whole delegates for Dr. Paul out of 43 total available.

What a joke.

"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

Big bump

Thanks.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

In it to win it! Not taking NO for an answer.

"infiltrating the Republican establishment across the country,"
What? RP's rEVOLution IS the Republican Party albeit the constitutionalist/Libertarian fiscal wing of the party, never-the-less it's still Republican and Indy. RP can get the cross over vote from Dems. NO ONE ELSE CAN!

Keepin' it real.

you know

it's funny.. now that romney has "clinched" the nomination i have been seeing a lot of positive stuff about Ron Paul on the MSM.

Stage Two

First ignore Ron Paul so that Romney may get the nomination.

Now, take note of Ron Paul supporters to suck votes away from Romney.

Stage 3, we surprise them all at Tampa as Ron Paul graciously accepts the nomination he no longer was attempting to gain.

personally

i think Ron Paul is absolutely brilliant, which makes me ask.. do you think this is part of his strategy? make em think your out so that they don't see you as a threat anymore, giving them time to try and rebuild their image by giving unbiased coverage.

I Call This "The Rope A Dope" Strategy

Rope a dope them romulan dopes...Its on to Tampa and beyond....

So many people still think a Romney/Paul ticket...

would do amazing things.. I disagree and do not think Paul would accept a VP run except for maybe Rand running as VP.. What I would consider is something like Sec. of the Treasury or Chairman of the Fed. I think either of those would give Paul more power than a spot as VP. But could you imagine a Romney/Rand Pres/VP ticket and Ron in there as one of those two? I actually think all 3 would work together well. Yes Romney is the "establishment" and not my first choice as Pres. But if we have 2 of 3 major positions Romney would be forced to listen. And also think that Romney has not announced really anything yet on his "positions" for the election... We could have a huge impact with his run if he is the official nominee if we have 2 of 3 again.. think about it...
