Louisiana Paulers Left out to dry by the state party.

I have it on good authority from someone in Louisiana that the LAGOP has just submitted its list of delegates to the Tampa convention to the RNC. Conspicuously missing are any Ron Paul supporters. This is the same state where Paul supporters controlled over 61% of the delegates at the state convention who voted to send 27 Paul supporters out of the 46 total for Louisiana.

It is stunts like this that have totally alienated the influx of young, committed and knowledgeable individuals into the party. These people are told by the establishment (after getting cheated in 2008) to get involved...flex your political muscles...call out with the voice of freedom and liberty and when they do and beat the socks off of the establishment, the establishment just turns around and pretends they don't exist.

How can they expect Paul supporters who have been so treated to stay involved and support their continued efforts let alone support their presupposed candidate? The Republican party faces a battle against demographics and if they don't do something to encourage the above-mentioned people, it is doomed to obsolescence and ultimately death.

So what is the next step?

If certain people can cheat and there is no legal or political recourse? They are just like the mafia. Wouldn't it make sense we use more mafia type techniques? If this continue I am afraid some of these people will be in the show unsolved mysteries. Lol

Eugene Dokes is running for

Eugene Dokes is running for office this Tuesday August 7th 2012. It's time to get out and vote for his rival, a true liberty candidate, Tyler Holyfield.

Eugene Dokes was blackmailed by Rothschild.

Forget Dokes, take a court case against Dokes' financiers. Put his money men in court.

This is sickening

But no jury in this country would say this is OK. Problem is the convention is next month and no time to have this legally settled. Only a legal intervention can stop something like this so quickly.
Very discouraging... and when people take up arms they won't even
understand the problem.

Zsh Ninja Predicted This

..and the "chickens have come home to roost".

BLOWBACK as a result and in reaction to L4RP Lawsuit.

WHERE is all the damned protection that ambulance-chaser promised you?

LA GOP is laughing...all the way to Tampa!

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

I don't think this is blowback...

the LAGOP said that they would do this. It's an expected move on their part. They never had any intention of allowing the duly elected delegates to represent Louisiana in Tampa.

That Is True, But..

...Why do they fight "us"?
Partly because of a "perceived threat" and the Lawyer4 Thing would definitely fit into this category.

LAGOP obviously can read and see for themselves a "change" coming.

If they saw this Lawyer4 "Campaign", which included at it's early announcements the "targeting" on a FEDERAL "scale", it would be perceived as such.

Louisiana has a rich, proud history of fighting against FEDERALISM does it not?
Gilbert set the wheels in motion on a scenario with federal marshalls involved within party confines...now seen as a HUGE blunder.

Thanks for your input.

Aha

Just like the way the gave all their weapons during Katrina.

Im seriously laughing. Im

Im seriously laughing. Im looking forward to 4 years from now when it will be much worse. Are they seriously expecting this huge growing fraction of the GOP just to go along or disappear? LOLOOOOOOO!

Actually, yes, that's EXACTLY what they are expecting

And, sadly, if you are following what people are posting on DP it's going to work. There are far too many RPers posting that they are angry with the GOP and are going to leave.

So, the establishment plan is working, why shouldn't they continue to follow their plan.

If our people roll over at the slightest hint of adversity against their results of hard work, CONTRARY to what Ron Paul wants us to do (i.e. take over the GOP), that's not the GOPs problem is it? It's our own.

Shame those RPers who have quit!

Someone pushed you and you go crying home to your mama or a lawyer? What kind of patriot are you? What would the founding fathers think?

Just do what RP wants you to do, hang in there, REDOUBLE YOUR EFFORT (not quit!) and get er done!

I'm really glad to see this happening

I've been telling people forever that the system is rigged.

I'm sure you'll all just try again in 4 years after we've lost even more rights and liberty and you'll fail again... and then again 4 years later... but maybe after it happens over a few more cycles, you'll finally admit that the only solution is a REAL, PHYSICAL REVOLUTION.

I'll be waiting for you.

At their inceptions, the #Liberty, #OccupyWallStreet and #TeaParty movements all had the same basic goal... What happened?

RP Campaign Prepares to Challenge LA Delegate Slate

The Ron Paul 2012 campaign is preparing to challenge the entire slate of Louisiana's 46 delegates selected to attend the Republican National Convention next month in Tampa, Florida.

See: http://www.dailypaul.com/246539/ron-paul-campaign-prepares-t...

this seems silly

You're not going to win when your opponent is the one who makes up the rules. You have to create a new game at which to beat them. They own the courts, they own the party, they own the media... They control the money... Where does Ron Paul have the advantage? I'll give you a hint: where did the majority of his campaign contributions come from?

At their inceptions, the #Liberty, #OccupyWallStreet and #TeaParty movements all had the same basic goal... What happened?

Seems they are trying to push

Seems they are trying to push us over the edge.

I would support a money bomb for legal action against these mislead fools.

Seeing them in federal prison is what needs to happen.

WE NEED MORE SPIES IN THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN!!!

We need more spies in the Romney campaign. We need to play dirty and uncover corruption. We need to be the devil to beat one.

Yes we do, but ALAS

How many libertarians have you met who can keep their mouths shut and follow Dale Carnegie's rules of "How to win friends and influence people" who can actually do this?

ZERO

Our own fault. Self-control is required to accomplish what you are suggesting.

WOW....

this is a new level of corruption- another terrible precedent. at least when our people make it into the delegation, the party usually seats the rightful victors. is this just a complete disregard for the convention? we've seen these crooks rig plenty of conventions, but this takes things to a whole new level! file charges immediately! the democratic process is such a sham in this country, and these people claim to want to spread it around the world

People should not be afraid of their governments, governments should be afraid of their people.

Now We See

It was a rigged deck all along. A sham. Time to stop believing that we can work through the system, to fix it. We were never in the game at all - the seat at the table we thought we had, was pulled out from under us.

Time to bring it all down - or just outright ignore it. Time for all of us to go on strike, and disregard the state. It should have no part in our lives. When we do that, we will not only survive, but thrive.

Global Strike !

here is the note:

Wait

so the delegates that were voted on at the state convention aren't going? They just changed the people going to the national convention behind closed doors?????

Yes, that is what they did.

Yes, that is what they did.

Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

John Adams

we

can't fight this in any way?? How does this happen?? WTF???

I doubt they care

I'm really starting to believe both parties are on the same side. They split America in half. Get people loyal to one view or the other. Than pretend to fight over stupid issues... but when it really matters, when its an issue almost all Americans can agree on.. They come together in a bipartisan way to say F*** you America.

If the Republican party wants to win they know what to do... but thats not the plan. The plan is tyranny.

Democrat - has now turned into communist/marxist/socialist/progressive or whatever the hell you want to call it. Used to be a party of less war, more lax on drug policy and social issues. Today, its Imperialistic foreign policy, police state, and even far left of the average dem on economic issues or immigration.

Republican - Less Wellfare, more Warfare. More Defense, Less Liberty.

So choosing between the two will basically a bullet to the head or a bullet to the stomach. We'll die either way.. just how quick do you want to go. OR you vote for Paul/3rd party... it may be a long shot.. but the only thing you miss out on is having influence on which way you would like to die.

Let it die

The powers that be will then have to create a new party to maintain the illusion of choice.

Elected LA Delegates Need To Show Up At Tampa And

See If You Can Get Federal Marshals To Enforce Your Election? This is afterall a federal election and there are federal laws that the RNC must abide. If you had the courage to run and get elected delegate, you need to have the courage to do everything possible to enforce your election. What would a Congressman do if he was elected but somehow not allowed to enter the chambers at the capitol? This situation is no different. Whoever is trying to prevent the duly elected LA delegates need to be put in their place. Enough is enough.

With this bullsh*t going on with the election evidently completely rigged, as well as the ATT treaty crap the President is trying to pull with gun rights, if somehow the Senate ratifies this gun grabbing treaty Obama says he's going to sign, I will consider this country essentially in civil war. I can say this because this is exactly what triggered our last civil war, when Pres. Lincoln attempted to confiscate firearms from the people. I remember that Obama was asked a question once as far as which president(s) he felt he identified with the most. From what I remember, he may have named a few, but I believe he did say Lincoln, and I wonder if his intentions to eliminate our 2nd amendment may be mostly why he said that. The gov't seems to be preparing for riots in Tampa I believe for these reasons...

Your "Cafeteria-Style" of Argument

...is seriously flawed.......
You endorse a scenario that would put a federal agency to "overlord" the political process....and effectively violating:
STATES' RIGHTS....precisely the real reason for the:
......."War Between the States".....................

You "claim" that Lincoln attempted to enact "gun control"?
THAT is HILARIOUS!...and to tie this in with an Obama-style-plot?
EVEN MORE INCREDULOUS!

I Meant To Say The Last Straw That Set Off The Revolutionary War

was the British Troops tried to confiscate firearms:

http://www.restoringamerica.org/second_amendment.htm

So the mentioning about Lincoln was ludicrous. Thanks for pointing that out. I keep getting the civil war and revolutionary war confused sometimes since they both happened so long ago.

Also about the federal marshals, this is why I was asking the question since I'm not sure that they would be able to do that.

I hear ya on the states rights/sovereignty issue, however this is a federal election subject to federal law which the Mitt Romney supporters and campaign have evidently flagrantly violated throughout this entire process. The Massachusetts situation is just one example.

-LibertyG ... 2 Corinthians 2:16-17 "To some we are a scent of death leading to death, but to others, a scent of life leading to life. And who is competent for this? For we are not like the many who make a trade(for profit) but as those with sincerity...

That's right, the courts are already ruling against....

And this thing is heavily in the courts.

There is no question at all that Romney can't ignore his criminal activities now. Also the shot heard around the world that starts revolutionary war mode will probably be uneventful, Romney and the other democrats don't have enough armed guards to attack with.

Romney is short on money, he well may start caving in when the smoke starts to clear. As much as I believe the democratic party officers should be arrested for treason, including Mitt Romney, I'm willing to let them stew until we finally expose the final coffin on these people during daily T.V. news.

If he cracks up on T.V., arresting Romney and a few of the others will be a piece of cake. If he aka Obama tries to initiate lethal force everywhere with the army, that is going to make the news media casters quickly switch sides so this thing doesn't blow up.

Edit to my last post: Again, Louisiana not Massachusetts LOL

There's too many states to keep track of now, my head keeps spinning with all of the different issues surrounding this election.
