I Am Done Being Quiet About This UPDATESubmitted by 3StepsTowardFreedom on Mon, 07/09/2012 - 18:14
Reading posts and responses on the dailypaul from those who obviously did not experience "events" at their county or state conventions JUST PLAIN GRIPES ME! PLEASE post your videos and grievances here as a reminder to those who have forgotten how poorly we have been treated and for those who just plain seem to not know or not get it.
For those of you who did not experience any travesties let me tell you some of the quotes that I have in sworn, notarized afidavits for you to get a small clue of the sort of things people have gone through in the attempt to attend and participate in a fair election process and meeting. Please note these are comments from several individuals from their experience, these are not from me. I have my own sentiments for the evil that went on at my county and state conventions.
"I felt dirty"
"I felt the youth was just RAPED"
"I literally felt as if I was molested today"
"What did they want to do to me put a star on my chest?"
"The only difference from this experience and that of the old world countries is they did not put a gun to my head and pull the trigger."
"They are just plain evil"
"This is a disgrace"
"I am done with the Republican Party"
"I thought they were going to lynch me"
"They threatened the sergeant of arms, just for calmly asking to be a delegate."
"I knew this was going to happen, they were just going to ambush us and run us over."
"They were yelling at me that the Ron Paul people were crazies and whackos."
"Ron Paul is dangerous, how could you think of representing him?"
"We have to stop the Ron Paul people at all costs"
"They are stalling and going to cause us to lose to Obama!"
"Anyone, BUT Paul!"
"I hate those Ron Paul people!"
"Have 9-1-1 on speed dial in case those Paul people show up"
"We are going to have a really BIG guy at the caucus that will be wearing all black to intimidate those Paul people in case they start any trouble!"
These were not exagerations! These were the sentiments of an airline pilot, a Christian radio station worker, an insurance litigator, an investor, a housewife, an elderly women that was with the Republican Party for years, a retired veteran, an honor student, a state worker, a 5 year central committeeman, a stuntman, and more.
I see so many people on here stating things like, "Did you get involved in your central committee meeting?" "Ron Paul does not support a Federal marshal guarding the delegates!" Are you kidding me? They have ambushed us, ran us over, discriminated against us, called us names, etc. AND THIS IS OKAY with any of you, seriously. Join the lawsuit, do something, I hope these criminals go to jail. I would love for my tax money to pay for that! ALL we have ever wanted to do was get involved and have a FAIR process. I think several of us have "attended central committee meetings" and became a huge part of the Republican Party. Please do not be condescending. BUT, the old guard has treated us as if we were not allowed to sit at the lunchcounters or use the same restroom, treated us as if we had some sort of plague. This is autrocious behavior.
Please post more of your thoughts and experiences here. I know that more people have many more comments.
