And believe me, we will not sit idly by and watch the establishment run roughshod over Ron Paul’s supporters who were illegally

Dear Tommy,

The credentials fight you and I were expecting to have in Tampa has already started.

The Committee on Contests recently issued a ruling on the establishment’s challenge to Ron Paul’s delegates and alternates who were duly elected in Maine, and on our challenges to the outright cheating that occurred in Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Oregon (alternates only).

Despite Ron Paul’s supporters being so clearly in the right in these four states, the establishment is so far refusing to rule fairly and seat our duly elected delegates and/or alternates.

Here’s a brief summary of the bogus challenge made by the GOP establishment against us in Maine, as well as our challenges to the cheating that occurred elsewhere:

*** In Maine, where Ron Paul supporters held a clear majority at the State Convention, the establishment is attempting to unseat the state’s duly elected delegates and alternates – acting like sore losers in the process. The challenge to our delegates in Maine is so bogus that Republican Governor Paul LePage – who is one of the few delegates not being challenged by the establishment – has declared he will not attend the Republican National Convention unless Ron Paul's delegates and alternates who were duly elected are seated;

*** In Louisiana, establishment “big wigs” used threats, intimidation, and force – literally smashing the bones of one gentleman – to shut out Ron Paul supporters who had a clear majority at the State Convention;

*** In Oregon, the State Chairman blatantly ignored the votes of the Convention, taking it upon himself to replace the duly elected alternate delegates with an “appointed” slate chocked-full of establishment cronies;

*** In Mitt Romney’s home state of Massachusetts, corrupt Party officials changed the rules after the game was over – kicking out Ron Paul’s duly elected delegates and alternates and replacing them with their hand-picked cronies.

As you can see, the Old Guard establishment doesn’t care about cheating, lying, abuse of process, and high-handedness in our Party.

All they seem to care about is maintaining their iron grip over the Republican Party.

But Ron Paul’s number-one goal for the RNC is making sure his delegates and alternates who deserve to be seated in Tampa are credentialed.

So if the establishment wants a fight in Tampa, rest assured we’re going to give them one.

Currently, our campaign lawyers and staff are furiously working to analyze and craft the appropriate response to the Committee’s rulings, and we’ll be sure to keep you informed as we move forward in the process.

And believe me, we will not sit idly by and watch the establishment run roughshod over Ron Paul’s supporters who were illegally railroaded by the GOP.

We will stand up and fight for all of Ron Paul’s delegates and/or alternates in these four states – and we will not back down.

Of course, one would think the Romney campaign would want these conflicts resolved so they didn’t become major issues at the Convention.

But so far they’ve sat idly by on the sidelines.

Hopefully they’ll change their do-nothing approach once they realize we’re serious about going all-out to win these credentials battles.

And remember, nearly 90 major media outlets have already reserved a spot at our “We are the Future Rally.”

So if the GOP goes through with these bogus challenges, they won’t be able to hide behind their iron curtain. They will be exposed by the press.

The good news is, the Committee on Contests’ ruling is not the final word in this fight.

The battle will be decided by the Credentials Committee in Tampa – where we are very organized and prepared to take action.

As the battle rages on over the next two weeks, I’ll be sure to keep you updated on our progress and any new developments that occur along the way.

I hope to see you in Tampa.

For Liberty,

John Tate
Campaign Manager

ACTION Talks.....

Bull Shit Walks.

This is high comedy

"We sat on our hands until now - but trust us: We won't sit on our hands later. Please send more money!"

I trust my fellow grassroots Ron Paul supporters. I'm done with trusting the official campaign.

Downvote me all you want.

They killed the golden goose...

...and are now applying CPR to revive it.

So sad for them that Ron Paul supporters weren't as gullible as they thought. Free money without accountability sure was a great gig for Benton, Olson and Tate while it lasted, though.

They need to put up one hell of a fight in Tampa for me to ever trust them again. Actions speak louder than words (or fundraising missives). Until they rejoin our fight for liberty against all would-be tyrants, including Romney and the GOP's wholly-corrupt establishment, with all of the energy and urgency that our present crisis demands, my checkbook is closed.

What's your next move if it's not through the campaign?

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Getting myself right with God

And right with my family and my community, so that they know who I am and what I stand for, and that I will not waver, and I will not compromise, and I will not give in to Evil.

What more is there? I have no control over Rand Paul, Jesse Benton, John Tate, or any of the other fucks that are sucking on the teat of the Political Industrial Complex. I have no idea what is in their hearts. I have no control over what they do, and if I send them money, I have no idea what they'll do with it. (Though I have some idea, having seen how they wasted what I sent to them already).

I only have control over only one person in this world, and that is me. And if I cannot control myself, how can I expect to control anything else in this world?

So my next move, as I said, is to get right with God. To overcome my fear. To prepare myself for what is inevitable, and not to put my trust and faith in those who have already failed me.

Sure on a personal level that's great but it's a lot of blah

blah blah when it comes to changing the direction of the country.

I'm not defending any of those guys because they pretty much fucked us for sure but unless YOU'RE willing to take the reins and be that man or woman...

I for one have tried the peaceful way and that has yet to play fully out as I see it, so I'm going to give it a little more time. What comes after that, if it doesn't succeed, isn't a pleasant thought.

What is the country composed of?

Individuals. Individuals are the building blocks of the family, the community, and the country. If individuals are corrupt, the country will be corrupt.

I'm willing to take the reigns as a leader to my family, and my community. And I'll tell you for damn sure I'm not going to give the reigns to some mealy-mouthed no good liar.

The problem is we give our consent away all too easily. We abdicate our responsibility to convenience. And we allow people like Romney a path to flip flop to the top.

I'm so excited and

wish I could go to Tampa. I believe it will be historic. Regarding the press..I hope some of them will be truth reporting.

Thanks for a great job John. We cannot let anyone be intimidated and I know every RP delegate will know the rules and not allow them to be trashed. I believe this is our best chance to begin to correct the wrongs. I thank the Lord for Dr Paul, and for those smart, informed, and devoted to the cause individuals who surround him. You are a solid, cohesive group.

Best quote all year...

If they want a fight

Why didn't you fight in Iowa, and Oklahoma, and Louisiana, and Massachusetts and Oregon and all the other places we got DEMOLISHED by the GOP?

Gonna back up into the ropes and try to fight in Tampa? I'll believe it when I see it.

NO MORE MONEY!

But yeah, it is a great quote. I'd love it if they meant it.

God be with you John Tate

GOOD LUCK, much LOVE and prayer!

The GOP likes to Control their Power Structure!

Threats, intimidation, payoffs, changing of their rules, hurting our delegates and committee people are their standard tacticts. But because, Ron Paul is running these methods have been increased and it has been enforced by the GOP.

change it

The more insiders we have, the more likely we win. In December, get to your monthly county GOP meetings and take everything open position. Some areas will be having county party position elections in February. Take those spots!
