Romney Was Promised The Nomination By The RNC Four Years Ago.

The sad, largely unspoken, fact of this "nomination race" is that it was all decided back in February of 2008, prior to Super Tuesday. Romney was told that if he dropped out in favor of the older neocon, McCain, that the nomination would be his this time.

Everything the RNC has done since that time has been to do whatever it takes (including breaking bones) in order to assure that promise was kept.

Remember, Romney was WINNING when he dropped out. Most cash, most delegates...the works.

Remember, McCain was dead in the water, broke, totally out of the race, campaign staff had left the scumbag, until he went to London and met with the Rothschilds. We had $20 million in the bank at that time. He began running MILLIONS OF DOLLARS in wall-to-wall national TV ads (with "no money"--can you say "Lord Rothschild") and creamed us on Super Tuesday. We never EVER ran one single TV ad, but spent millions on "production" of ads that never ran (I've reviewed the FEC reports thoroughly) and there you have it.

We also saved $5 million out at the end in '08 in order to start C4L, of course.

I am not sure why anyone is surprised this campaign has also been sabotaged the same way...and that we have $3 million left now to pay Jesse and Trygve for the foreseeable future, and whatever other little neocon infiltrators they decide to run C4L with.

I Remember Reading About the GOP 4-Year Cycle

For half a century, Republicans have always nominated the runner-up from four years prior. When Richard Nixon took the nomination in 1960, the only other candidate to get delegate votes was Barry Goldwater; so the next time around, Goldwater got nominated.

Later, after Gerald Ford edged out Ronald Reagan in 1976, Reagan got nominated four years later. Regan beat out George Bush Sr. Eight years later, Bush beat out Bob Dole; then Dole won the next nomination.

After George W. Bush beat out McCain in 2000, McCain got the nomination and beat out Romney in 2008. So here we are, and its Romney's turn. B-o-o-o-o-r-r-r-r-r-ring!

Worse than boring...

...it is an absolute MOCKERY of the "democratic process."

"Truth is an absolute defense to the charge of paranoia."

shouldn't it excite you...

since it appears that Ron Paul will finish 2nd this time?

We can

stop em in Tampa

We already knew this

because even before the first primary, the media was saying that Romney was the "inevitable nominee". It was decided before hand, and the media perpetuated the self fulfilling prophesy, so that people would be less suspicious that such a faulty candidate could win the nomination. I remember in many of the debates, Romney would get destroyed and the media would claim that he "won" the debate. Ron Paul would clearly win, and the talking heads would just call him a "funny guy".

Yes.

McCain was told he could have 2008, Romney was promised 2012.

Both elections are intended to have Obama as POTUS.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

As long as people like Ron

As long as people like Ron Paul don't become president, I think their agenda is satisfied.

While I can't prove it,

I believe that joeneesima's description above is correct.

The people are not even part of the process. It's all rigged.

And we were told to get a seat on a central committee five years

How many here actually did what Ron Paul told them to do?

Did you get a GOP central committee seat?

TPTB want to shut down the GOP and take the Democratic Party into the NWO as THE party representing the US. We all know Romney is a red herring. We know they want Obama because Obama has proved he will do what they tell him to do.
It's not that we want Romney.. we who did what Ron Paul asked us to do what the opportunity to restore America to constitutional government, and the GOP gives us that opportunity that a Third Party or Indy run won't accomplish as they have no CENTERAL COMMITTEE that has any power.

Meanwhile, those who followed Ron Paul into the GOP and got seats and have put themselves in place for elections are being undermined by folks like you who don't get it, don't want to get it.. or

You, want to kill off the GOP like tTPTB so we can go into a NWO.

Furthemore, your complaints against the campaign, and your issue with Benton only proves you are NOT with us but against us.

Depressing to think

about what could have been a real game changer in American politics with Ron Paul. Yeah, he's the real deal, but they weren't "in it to win it". I don't even know if Ron Paul himself was aware of this. Maybe he's too Libertarian, to a fault, by letting Jesse Benton et al run the campaign. I'd hate to think that all the supporter's hard work and cash is going to support a few of Paul's family people for the foreseable future. I'm sure they'll align themselves with Rand now, so as to keep it from being obvious. Ron Paul was electable, with the right campaign team. Dr. Paul either didn't really want the win, or he made some bad choices in campaign staff. Is it possible that nepotism was a factor?

OK...here it is...

It was Deripaska:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/06/23/mccain-fundraising-...

...a close confidante of the Rothschilds:

http://www.theweek.co.uk/people/39889/rothschild-and-deripas...

...who met with McCain before the campaign.

This meeting between McCain and Deripaska was reported in JANUARY 2008--well before Super Tuesday, of course, and is thought to have been the '06 preface to the face-to-face in London between McCain and Rothschild in March '08. That is what I was thinking of--that report which surfaced BEFORE SUPER TUESDAY '08. Sorry. Getting older, and that was 4.5 years ago now...

Of course, McCain was broke and out of it JUST AS DESCRIBED in January, but somehow was able to run millions of dollars worth of national TV advertisements. You tell me where that money came from? The FEC apparently can't...

There is no question that Romney was in FAR BETTER SHAPE in January than McCain, and there is no other explanation for why he should have thrown in the towell when he did than that he was asked to step aside for McCain in '08. What might that pay off have been??? You draw your own conclusions. But, if the RNC's OBVIOUS support for Romney '12 over all others going back many months is not obvious to you, it still is to many others.

"Truth is an absolute defense to the charge of paranoia."

You May Be Right ! It's All About "BIG" Money !

Michael Collins Piper, a Washington D.C. based investigative reporter, said, on his radio show, that the current 2012 Presidential race was decided when Sir Evelyn Robert de "Rothschild" announced {sometime around the time Rand Paul turned traitor} that he was backing Romney. {With big money}
Also, billionaire gambling mogul, Sheldon Eddelson was also backing Romney {instead of Gingrich} with big money, at this time.

Unable to verify though. ???????????

The Capitol Column | Friday, June 29, 2012

"""Mr. Paul, who remains in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination,""" has campaigned heavily against Mr. Obama’s key legislative accomplishment. Speaking Thursday, Mr. Paul told supporters that they should continue to work to oppose the health care law, saying it should be repealed and reformed.

What is your source?

I need a source to pass this on.

You mean like Wayne Root

was promised the 2012 LP nomination if he bowed out for Bob Barr in '08?

I am hoping for the same result...

Rights are like muscles; you must exercise them to keep them fit, or they will atrophy and die.

Nope.

That's just not credible.

"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty" TJ

Silly

No one in the LP is fool enough to believe a promise such as that, would be made in the first place. Getting Libertarians to go where you want them to has been famously and frequently compared to "herding cats."

As a frequent LP delegate, myself, I can tell you that the idea is ludicrous.

Yes, it makes total sense that Root, who was, then, new to the party, and is still far louder (and compares to a loose cannon) than the typical libertarian, would be utilized in a support capacity rather than pushed as a candidate this time around, the result you prefer for Romney, but the LP doesn't have the kind of "machine" that makes or breaks promises such as you suggest.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Really?

"Big "L'' Libertarians hope their party will be the vehicle for that, and activists such as Wayne Root — the party's 2008 vice presidential nominee — are looking to bring more people into the fold by emphasizing fiscal policy over more controversial libertarian issues such as decriminalization of marijuana.

Root writes a libertarian blog from his home outside of Las Vegas and calls himself a commonsense "suburban Libertarian" who supports home-schooling, low taxes and personal freedom (a la legalized online gambling). He is looking to make his own run for president in 2016 or 2020. A longtime Vegas oddsmaker, Root's prediction is the American public will be ready for a viable third-party candidate sooner rather than later."

Are you trying to tell me that if there were no Gary Johnson that WAR wouldn't have been Lee Wrights main competition for the 2012 LP nod?

Edit....This comment was in response to Shazads statement below.

If not us than who?

I thought he dropped out because he was tipped off

that the state of Texas was going to kidnap those 400 mormon children. If you recall he dropped out shortly before that happened. His campaign would have been sunk with all the debate then about mormons and polygamy.

Hmm. Forgot that.

Hmm. Forgot that.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Yeah

That was as obvious back then as it is now.

So true-

We (central Texas) had some regular GOP types go to DC during this time period. They came back saying the same thing. They meet with Delay and Dick Army specifically. Romney could have bloodied McCain.

Lawyers for RP, can you hear me now?

on McCain winning - What about the Iraninan Speedboat?

All I know is that the little speedboat that was "threatening" the US Navy Ship in the Straits of Hormuz - remember the one with the canned voice over?- remember? during SuperTuesday certainly helped McCain lock it up.

Every minute on the news that day it was a picture of McCain and the damn same footage of the "tension" in the Straits with the Iranians.

of course a Google search did not produce these links. (couldn't find what I was looking for there) IXquick did.

Well it was a bad promise because

It's crystal clear that the Republican leaders made a deal with the Democrat leaders to give them 8 straight in the White House.
I have no doubt.
They threw 2008 like a cheap prize fight.
It's an 8 year deal.

Let's see who's got it right.

You need to expand your horizons a bit.

It truly appears that the deal was a bit more convoluted than you have stated. The bottom line is that Obama was guaranteed two terms in office by the GOP agreeing to consecutively field two losing candidates. This movement has certainly tossed a wrench into their plans, hasn't it? C'mon Shazzz, it's your turn, I'd love to be able to witness the look on your face when you see the turn of events at the convention.

If not us than who?

what wrench?

Are you predicting a Ron Paul victory at the convention? How confident are you of that?
