GOP Makes Room for Rep. Ron Paul at Tampa Convention?

Ron Paul supporters have feuded with state Republican parties across the country, battling for delegate seats at the national convention, but the national party is welcoming Paul and his supporters to the event with open arms, even helping the Texas congressman organize his troops.

I've put much of my confidence in the L4RP with......

Attorney Richard Gilbert at the helm. The fact they are filing a Federal Injunction Lawsuit with thus far around 400 Plaintiffs on their behalf. The L4RP and Plaintiffs are awaiting patiently to go before Federal Judge Carter whom has a reputation as being fair and Constitutionally strict. He is bound by Federal Law(s)and will not deviate from such. Judge Carter is an Ex-Marine and runs his court like a Marine Officer. Please for any National Delegates or alternate National Delegates who have yet filed to become Federal Plaintiffs as a part of the L4RP Federal Injunction Lawsuit, please do so ASAP.

Let's Not Let Our Guard Down

The establishment and the media are hoping by writing and publishing this article we will let our guard down. Let's not give them what they want. Be on alert, delegates and be prepared for the worst. Don't let them push you around.

Hey don't worry ya'll

Remember this!, Ron Paul has made his own moves since last year, he has done everything in his own hands, he knows what to do, he knows exactly how to be president, I am 1000%. he knows better than anyone about the delegate process, nobody not even the media knew it or the other candidates, Benton made so many bad moves on part of the campaign, but RP still dominated, something could be going on, maybe not, lets wait and see

Newt Gingrich or Jackie Gleason?

For a break in the routine I will share a picture I photoshopped of Newt Ginrich.

When I saw this picture the first thing I thought of was Smokey and the Bandit.

Enjoy!

If you like airshow pictures there are some in the set as well. Including a great shot of the U2 Spyplane with the moon.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch..

He Newt! "I gonna barbeque yo a#ss"

lol

Kinda expected

this kind of propaganda especially after local GOP executive committees stripped RP of his delegates and replaced them with romney zombies (a la massachusettes.)

UP Benton's

You mean that little money grubber is still slithering around?
He should have got the boot a long time back.

Thank you Enemy We really appreciate your offer But

"national party is welcoming Paul...with open arms,"

This makes me want to puke and is a blatant lie, IMO.

Fishy

Sounds to me like they get it that there is no way Rmoney is going to beat out Obummer...I am thrilled he gets to speak however!

Bend Over Jessie

Oh, thank god for the RNC.

This is sick. Jessie Benton is nothing more than a fake, farce and traitor. Imagine the sheep that believe this crap.

Joined the Liberty Movement in Anchorage, Alaska, 1977. Ron Paul supporter since 1983.
In Liberty from the Pacific Northwest.

By Bentons logic

we should lick the GOP's hand for only beating us half to death.

If not us than who?

SteveMT's picture

Those two words don't go together.

"Benton's logic" sounds like an oxymoron to me. Those words right next to one another really hit a nerve. Nice comment.

At least this is proof...

That the media is spreading FUD and lies when they say he's had his last gasp and won't be allowed to speak.

If one is on the ballot, one is automatically allowed to speak!

Benton-dick Arnold

Wasn't there another guy with almost the same name some years ago?
I can not believe the comments coming out of Benton-Dick Arnold's mouth nowadays.
This guy is a complete "toothless tiger" if there ever was one.

What- I call Bull

RP rents a space in the same town as the convention because they ALLOWED him to? They are permitting him to hold a rally for his supporters across town and this is being welcomed? Nowhere does it say he will even enter through the doors of the actual convention location. Jesse Benton kissy kissy crapulence.

If anyone believes the GOP

is playing nice, look to Nevada where a shadow GOP has been formed to siphon and redirect funds from anyone and any organization with any semblance of loyalty to Dr. Paul. We aren't lap dogs to be thrown a bone to make us forget how corrupt they are.

If not us than who?

They aren't siphoning funds.

They aren't siphoning funds. Those funds do not belong to the NV GOP. We took over the NV state party. Now they have two choices, they can stay with the party and work with us, or they can take their toys and go home.

It matters not what choice they make.

Please excuse my choice

of semantics. In my mind if it walks, quacks and swims like a duck it most likely is one. They denied funds which have historically been allocated to the State party and did so without precedent while they diverted those funds to a separate entity is the point I was making.
One other thing I'd like to mention, The GOP knows full well that Romney has a snow balls chance in hell of beating Obama, that is with out our support, and this lame attempt to placate us is proof. They just don't get the fact that we are no longer willing to sell this nation down the river by playing the political game of choosing the lessor of two evils. It just seems to be beyond their comprehension.

If not us than who?

The GOP is full of statists

The GOP is full of statists and fake conservatives. I dont believe for a minute that there isnt some plan behind this.
Appease Ron Paul and make him think hes part of the convention, while manipulating the rules so that only the candidate that kisses the most AIPAC butt has the nomination.
Romney makes me ill. If he gets in, Im sure we will be invading the rest of the middle east in no time.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants

How nice of them

I guess they are getting desperate for Paul supporters to endorse Romney. Nowhere in that article did it say they are going to let Ron speak. They're just going to be kind enough to let him and his supporters in the door. Sorry GOP but after Ron has retired my association with you is finished forever unless there is clear evidence that the party HAS been taken over by those that follow Ron's principles and policy. I and many others that I know will not be voting for Mitt Romney.

This is AWESOME!!!!!!!!

For those of us who have taken REPUBLICAN Ron Paul and HIS campaign seriously, and did what Ron Paul asked ALL of us to do, things are definately looking up within the GOP establishement, and I am very happy for this. I am even more happy that more Ron Paul REPUBLICANS are showing up for those empty seats, and we are most definately EARNING clout and respect.

It appears my prayers are being answered as the last CC meeting saw three new faces... RON PAUL REPUBLICANS,,, That will make 5 of us.

I'm so happy!!!!!!!!!!

There's absolutely nothing in this article

that tells us anything we didn't already know. Until I hear about them offering the Doc a prime time speaking slot, nothing's changed.

Just because Paul has won a place in Tampa

doesn't mean he's won yet or that the American people have won.

This gesture by the GOP is illusory in looking like they are playing nice, when in reality they haven't played nice all year. So, for those of you who think that people can change their tunes and suddenly become nice, I cannot help you because you live in la la land. For those that understand this, this becomes of paramount importance.

Because we need to know WHY, WHY, WHY they are really doing this so that we can understand what the Ron Paul and his delegates are really up against when they go to Tampa. Playing nice doesn't get you very far when you're dealing with those who have no intention of doing so. This entire thing isn't about being nice or civilized. Something else is at play, but what?

Please think about it and post your answers to this question. You never know, it could help us get a miracle in Tampa! I'm all for miracles! What about you?!

betty

my two cents...

Whether you're a spy probing or a true awaken, it would not matter because either way Romp will not be President. Obama will rip him apart in a debate FACT. So whatever is exposed now cannot help him.

Here's what I think: Because Ron Paul would not come out and opening say he supports Romp. So it was *decided* that to have RPaul on is better than nothing, so they begged him to show up. He'll show up and be on that world stage, make his speech and the world will hear and sees; fists will closed and spirit of truth will rise and the shadows of silent despair will speak a new name--Ron Paul.

I say: if you can't make it better, don't make it worst!
