Ron Paul Campaign Prepares to Challenge the Entire Slate of Louisiana's 46 Delegates

(CNN) – 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://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/07/27/ron-paul-cam...

The timing of this is great. With so many now thinking that Romney is a tax cheat, chances are Romney may exit the race. Having Dr. Paul clearly still working to win gives the GOP a runner up who will step in to take the White House for them. Oorah!

I still believe the final ultimate decision will lie with the...

Federal Courts decision in reference to the Federal Injunction Lawsuit filed by Richard Gilbert and the L4RP. Their lawsuit is written first and foremost for each and every interested Plaintiff involved and for those whom will be involved with this lawsuit which has been established to do absolutely "No Harm" and to lawfully unbind every National Delegate so that he or she may then vote his or her conscience on the first ballot whether the individual he or she is voting for is on the ballot or not. I fully realize that during the 2008 Republican Presidential Primary, the RNC had conveyed in one of their legal briefs that every/any National Delegate is not lawfully bound to vote for a specific individual/nominee on the first ballot or otherwise and that each delegate may rightfully vote his or her conscience. The Federal Injunction Lawsuit filed so that if the Federal Judge Carter rules on our behalf, it will lend the credence of Federal Law with a Federal Judges Court Order to back it up along with the support of U.S. Marshalls on our behalf during the Republican National Convention in Tampa. And trust me, I can assure you, we will more than likely need those U.S. Marshalls and their lawful supportive backing.

It sure as hell won't lie with Richard Gilbert, is all I know...

There is another lawyer who's a part of the Lawyers for Ron Paul team and has the entire case in front of a Military Judge right now.
As we speak that Judge is sorting the case.

He is a degree scholar, freedom fighter and just like the Judge takes no crap from anyone. There is nothing even close to flimsy about him.

Gilbert is cut from the opposite cloth as this chap, and his purpose is only to create mass confusion - a distraction we can't afford to have...and on top of that, Gilbert has said some outrageous things.

Richard/Robert Gilbert or whatever he calls himself, needs to step aside from the case forthwith and cease the conflict of interest.

Any updates yet?


RNC is missing the Point Romney is not electable.

Incompetence will win over elitism. You have one in ten jobs in America being tied to Germany where Wiemar and reunification instilled savings respect. In the mean time we fiance empire to our economic disadvantage. Carl Rove is directly responsible for the RNC problems.. Iowa changing Florida fraud in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and the MSM total dedication to drumming down America. Specious arguments on Health Care (65% government and if you count FDR "Quasi" Blues more) foreign intervention and all the talk at the point of a gun "American exceptional-ism. It really does not matter who wins the election and the money that is a joke too America spends more on yogurt than elections. Freedom is the issue force in labor, force in mutual fund choice, force in pension allocation.. all blow back... We really only have one choice look in the mirror and fix problems. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6s8a6H7Qts

Lets see if rule 38 of RNC and voter right laws are obeyed. NO DELEGATE IS BOUND. Lets see if the RNC is real patriots or just more 1% of controlled markets.

I resent this remark by Jason Dore of LAGOP

"It seems they are all caught up in these personal motives, and not focusing on the picture. And the big picture is electing Mitt Romney in the fall and defeating President Obama," Doré said.

To me the big picture is having an honest election and the winner represents the voters wishes. It seems the GOP's big picture is having Romney who some believe will win against Obama. Why bother having elections. THis is a fight worth fighting. I still want Ron Paul. And I won't vote for Romney. The GOP is going to be surprised to see how badly their wonderboy is doing after his foreign trips.


This is to Urge Everyone to Become Active on the State Level

Each of us must become active in our own State's election system in order to push for hand-counted paper ballots in as many places as possible before November. Even if we manage to get only a 10% hand-count across the country this election cycle, we would make tremendous progress for the "Election Integrity" movement. We would also have counts that would be 100% VERIFIABLE and 100% ACCURATE. No more of these "Missing votes found in the 11th hour" headlines!

precinct level

the precinct level is the most powerful office like being on a jury. precinct chair majority cannot be over ruled. they control billions of national party money also..

If this is happening in

If this is happening in enough states, is it still personal, or is Romney actually not as popular as he appears?

Could be both Personal toward the GOP and Romney is not popular


Now, the decision is in the hands of the RNC Credentials Committee, which will hear the challenge one week before the GOP convention in August. Whatever the Committee decides, the case holds significant implications for several other states where Paul supporters are issuing challenges to the state Republican Party due to delegate fraud. In Massachusetts and Oregon, Paul is planning similar challenges.

The larger issue here is that a candidate needs the majority of delegates in at least five states in order to enter their name into the nomination at the Convention. While Ron Paul holds the majority in three states (Iowa, Minnesota, and Maine), he needs two more in order to gain official recognition.

If supporters lead a successful challenge in at least two of Massachusetts, Oregon, or Louisiana, Ron Paul supporters will have a very different convention in August."

Other states are also planning challenges.


This could be the worst pair of losers

... in American presidential election history. There never was much enthusiasm for Romney, and few Democrats remain who are outwardly enthusiastic about Obama. The Lesser of Two Evils Squared.

Q. How about we give Ron Paul a shot at it?

Gary Johnson May Open That Opportunity

Rumor is that Gary Johnson, being a hero, has offered to step down and give Dr. Paul TOP billing for Presidential candidate of the Libertarian Party in the event Dr. Paul does NOT win the GOP. One of the members of L4RP claims to have conferred with Gary Johnson's attorney while briefing him on the Federal Civil Rights lawsuit. The subject came up about a Paul/Johnson Libertarian Ticket in the event Dr. Paul doesn't win the GOP nomination. They called it a "Dream Team" and discussed details about how to execute such a contingency plan. This plan, which may indeed be in the waiting, would give Dr. Paul 50 State ballot access. We would garner the Independent, Latino, Democratic, and Libertarian vote along with ALL our votes too. FREEDOM has NO Party Lines.

Rumors help no one.

If you cannot provide backup for this "rumor", please do not spread it.

"Rumor Is" Is a Figure of Speech. Ya' Want Backup?

Here are the sources (all per Danny RonuLan Perscini, as reported on "Lawyers for Ron Paul" on August 09, 2012 at approximately 4:25 pm Eastern Time). . .

Attorney Richard Gilbert - July 24 at 10:32 pm:
"Yes, I would be willing to file new federal cases to make 'sore loser' states put Dr Paul's name on the ballot because such laws were written for fair and lawful elections, not the crime spree election fraud of Romney."

Attorney Richard Gilbert - July 25 at 2:21 am:
"Who is up for helping to get Dr Paul on all 50 State Ballots as an Independent?"

David Callihan - July 25 at 5:03 pm:
"If we need to mobilize for this, we have 900+ activists at electionfraudremedy.com that we could give instructions on what to do. We just need a game plan to put out. Let's go! Wanna start with a conference call? Is it time to bring the legal activists together? Who has suggestions on getting organized for this action?"

Attorney Richard Gilbert - July 26 at 7:07 am:
"I met and conferred today with Gary Johnson's attorney. I briefed the case. The subject came up about a Paul / Johnson Libertarian Ticket only in the event Dr Paul does not win the GOP nomination. They called it a 'Dream Team.' We discussed some details about how to execute such a contingency plan. This would give Dr Paul 50 State ballot access. What are your thoughts? How would we convince Dr Paul to do it?"

Sorry Gary is a nice man but Paul went that road before,

Dream team? You will just have a blackout. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JChUO4TLjnY

You know I am hoping we have a education "Arab Spring" Fed busting, TBTF liquidation (synthetic derivative holders).

100% support this if ron paul

100% support this if ron paul is not the gop nominee. Anyone against this is either an obmaney lover or a diehard 3rd party theocrat or green party.

Ron Paul 2016


but even some ron paulers are as blind as obmaney(obama/romney) voters. You got negative rep'ed for suggesting or typing gary, probably a theocrat negative voting you or a ron paul purist who will not grasp reality if the gop does not nominate ron paul. Either way I love the fact gary offered and said this. The folks neg repping folks for even mentioning gary even though we support ron paul 110% are basically reminding me of the right wingers i dislike so much in the gop.Pretty much the reason i never joined the gop until i heard Ron Paul. keep up the good work in your state. I am over these ron paul purists who for some reason are going to vote obmaney or for a theocrat. Gary haters i guess will vote obama,romney or goode.

Ron Paul 2012 if the gop nominates him. If not i will support Gary over Obamney. My goal to get gary on debate stage and elected if Ron Paul is not an option.

Ron Paul 2016

Article Title misleading! This is the L4RP lawsuit, NOT official

I went to the LAGOP site and the lawsuit they link to is the Richard Gilbert Lawsuit.




Not true.
It's on the front page.

"Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear." - Benjamin Franklin

So the LAGOP is being challenged by both the Official RP2012

campaign and the L4RP delegates lawsuit.If the campaign wouldn't have made the decision starting in Iowa to "play nice" with the GOP we wouldn't have gotten into the mess we are now.

If they would have immediately challenged the Iowa results it would have shown Paul to have come in 1st place just like EVERY MSM outlet had already predicted and conceded. That would have changed all the primaries in every State and you would have seen that 70% 30% flipped to Paul.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul


A big portion of the announced delegate list has names that are not even on the caucus results.

Looks like the RP supporters were ahead of the game according to this LA GOP press release.


"June 20, 2012
Contact: Jason Doré

Lawsuit Filed Against LAGOP

The Republican Party of Louisiana announced today that a lawsuit has been filed in U.S. District Court in California’s Central District by more than 100 Ron Paul supporters and self-proclaimed delegates to the Republican National Convention."

This Article Refers to the Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit

All Louisiana Delegates (along with delegates from all other states) who have witnessed abuse, fraud, coercion and/or violations are encouraged to join the lawsuit as Plaintiffs. To join the lawsuit go to http://www.electionfraudremedy.com for more information.

Another problem with that "delegate list"

They were all supporters of Jindals school voucher program, the most liberal federal takeover in US history. Micheal Milken is the owner of the online charter school system (K12 Inc.)which is getting the lion's share of federal and state money.


Are you FLIPPING kidding? The entire DELEGATE list? How is that possible? Where are the Ron Paul delegates on this list? Are you saying there were none? Every state we know of has Ron Paul delegates.
This is sick.

Aside from that, I pray SO strong that Romney is called out to be an elitist cheater - which holds NO PLACE in the oval office. Never again should we fall prey to these kinds of people.

Thank you Dr. Paul for fighting all the way to the convention. I don't normally put "hope" into someone being a cheat, but Romney is just another status quo rich boy who plays with the system. He's another war monger, as well, and another jerk who doesn't adhere to the freedoms and liberties of the people.

The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.- George Washington

The last line in the article...

"It seems they are all caught up in these personal motives, and not focusing on the picture. And the big picture is electing Mitt Romney in the fall and defeating President Obama," Doré said.

Whoever thinks that is the "big picture", is a complete idiot.

Romney and the Louisiana GOP are an embarrassment to America....

They should be ashamed of themselves for their blatant cheating and resorting to violence during the caucus. They both represent everything that is wrong with America today...

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Don't worry...wars are being contemplated, people are dying,

the government is out of control on every level; really----you are not going to burn in Hell for a single duplicate post.

It looks like the campaign

It looks like the campaign isn't quite as asleep as sometimes I have concluded.

Two shorten the road.
