Consequences of Ron Paul Delegate LawsuitSubmitted by TKiowa on Tue, 06/26/2012 - 16:22
The recent lawsuit of the RNC by Ron Paul delegates, although its intentions are just, has one big unintended consequence. This lawsuit extends to several state parties and their chairmen, and one of these states is Iowa. You may have heard that recently at the Iowa GOP state convention Ron Paul took most of the delegates, however this is only half of the story. This was made possible by the fact that the Liberty movement has been gaining ground within the state party for many years now. Currently, the majority of the State Central Committee, including the State Party Chairman, are friends of Liberty, if not outright Ron Paul supporters. These are the state leaders that are now facing this lawsuit by fellow Paul supporters. This is extremely detrimental to the cause here in Iowa, and must be dealt with. How are we as Iowa Republicans supposed to advance the cause of Liberty here in our state when we are being attacked from our own brethren? Furthermore, the major point of the lawsuit of the is to unbind national delegates going to Tampa, however, Iowa delegates have never been bound to a candidate. We need help, understanding, and support to nourish the Liberty minded Republican Party of Iowa!
