Our Delegates WANT this lawsuit: Why are we fighting it?Submitted by Dr.K.Research on Tue, 07/10/2012 - 05:11
There are numerous misconceptions about the lawsuit that are worthy of clarifying. Foremost in this regard is that the claim that this suit has nefarious origins and is, thus, an act of subterfuge. Nothing could be further than the truth. In fact, this is strictly an action by Ron Paul voters. In other words, it is an entirely grassroots action. There are no illicit groups involved. Plus, it is an action taken by Ron Paul delegates of their own free will.
For that reason alone it is worthy of support.
Another misconception is that somehow this legal action will hurt our delegates or that it will, perhaps, disqualify them. This, too, is baseless. In fact, it is the opposite of the suit’s nature. The entire purpose of the suit is to prevent the criminal regime, which operates the election process, to do just that: use intimidation and coercion to disqualify and obstruct Ron Paul delegates.
Equally deceiving is this presumption, commonly posted on Ron Paul-friendly sites:
"The RNC will disqualify all delegates who are party to the lawsuit, because they have the power to disqualify anyone who sues them. So, if our delegates are party to the lawsuit, they will be disqualified."
No doubt, such postings would create doubt, as well as fear, in Ron Paul supporters. Yet, is this true? Our delegates already live in fear of this occurring: without the lawsuit. Even so, if this legal action prevails, than protecting the delegates from any such action will be the precise consequence.
The treachery against Ron Paul and his delegates is pervasive. Yet, it isn’t the lawsuit which is causing this treachery. It is instead the RNC. Moreover, the lawsuit is directed precisely and surgically against this organization. Thus, to attempt to derail the suit is equivalent to siding with the RNC itself: not a logical option.
The war against this movement comes mainly from without. Yet, it has also arisen to a degree from within. There were even saboteurs who struck from within the Ron Paul campaign.
Others are apparently working for the enemy, while operating under the illusion of “Ron Paul supporters, directors, and coordinators.” One notable example is Monica Serrano. This woman has attempted to completely undermine Arkansas’ six RP delegates/alternates. Incredibly, she attempted to coerce them into voting for Romney an d in two cases succeeded in gaining signatures. Fortunately, one very wise delegate exposed this, writing the following post on the DailyPaul:
http://220.127.116.11/242142/treachery-in-arkansas. This was followed by a shrewdly written letter, while admittedly powerful, written by attorney Richard Gilbert in defense of the delegates. In this letter Serrano was warned of her potentially incriminating acts, which amounted to coercion of the delegates.
UPDATE: two delegates, including one national alternate, have told me that they are frightened at what might happen to them in Tampa without this legal remedy. Other individuals who are solidly behind this include former delegates from the 2008 convention. They know the score; they know that the entire convention is militarized against them.
