Better than Walk Out, Turn Our Backs if Paul Not Given Chance to be NominatedSubmitted by James_Madison_Lives on Sat, 08/04/2012 - 19:51
Grabbing this jump ball from another post asking "Why not walk out" if Paul denied chance to be nominated, I think a better idea. Please debate.
Why not turn our backs and cross our arms, with a sign on our backs with the pertinent rule, "Rule (whatever - whichever rule best describes Paul's right to be nominated?)
The media will not be able to help but show the turned backs if they want any pan shots of the floor at all, which forces the talkingheads to comment. Now it's a buzz and local news camera crews from across the country (not as tightly controlled as national) are looking for RP delegates to buttonhole and ask what it's all about.
I was almost with the idea of walking out, but was persuaded by commenters that RNC would indeed like nothing better. Problem solved. Lock the doors.
By using the right we have earned to be on that floor creatively, we become the news.
We must present them with something which throws them off balance. Maybe others will join. The cameras can't miss it, and as this video shows, something about a turned back makes tyrants see red. If they start dragging us out the onus is on them, exposing the ugly police state the GOP has become.

And video of the goons who dragged him out which then went viral (MSNBC, Russia Today, PressTV):
