Nebraska 1 of our 5?Submitted by Nivlekius on Sat, 06/23/2012 - 11:45
With the uncertainty of a few states that could be the ultimate determination of whether or not we get 5 states to nominate Ron Paul I have been looking over the rules of the states that have yet to elect national delegates. Obviously we want as many delegates as we can and I pray that Oregon and Idaho vastly favors Paul. Unfortunately they won't help us get our 5. At the national convention the state chair will simply report the results from the state whether the delegates agree to it or not. I am not sure the lawsuit can do anything to remedy that. (Louisiana and Oklahoma being up in the air because of illegal, spiteful, dirty tactics from the establishment)
As I said, I have been looking over the rules for each state and Nebraska seems to be one of the few remaining states that we can definitely rely on to have unbound delegates that could theoretically vote for Paul. This makes Nebraska extremely important. I have been scouring the web for information and have found that in at least a few of the more populated counties Ron Paul is close to a majority. The state convention is on July 14 (Bastille Day! Vive la revolution!). So here is what I want to know or discuss. Is there anyone from Nebraska who may have some insight as to what we can expect from the state convention? How close are we to a majority? It is IMPERATIVE that every single Ron Paul delegate show up to the convention and ensures we get a plurality of Paul delegates to take to Tampa.
Any information is greatly appreciated.
*Edit* Colorado is also unbound delegates but that also seems up in the air and from what I've been reading depends on Santorum delegates coming over... don't hold your breath.
