I was just wondering if you are going to be ustreaming the RNC in Tampa? Do you have press credentials for the RNC part of the convention?

Why is the DFL sooo silent on RNC breaking rules???

Did you ever think that the 'fix' is in for Obama 2nd term anyway?

In Liberty

Why did Ben understate the situation?

They actually moved hotel walls to close off half the people in the room. They shut off the lights and the A/C claiming they had an event and needed the room. If they had an event why shut off the A/c and the lights- Why didn't this complaint have a video or did it? I thought Romney already had all the delegates and Ron only had 150. Media fraud on the America. The election process is a sham and so is the party.

He was covering

the main rule violation that we have brought before the RNC. There was obviously a lot more to the rule violations than just the one rule. But, this one rule is all that is needed to be covered and what makes them (the OK GOP) look like total idiots.

After Tampa

If the GOP succeed in their mission to prevent Paul from even getting a fair go at the convention, what do you plan on doing afterwards? Is it worth staying with the OK GOP to change the party?

Some of the RP people have had success changing their state parties but it sounds like the OK GOP is rotten to the core. Having access to the networks and fundraising is important but that has to be weighed against a party leadership whose goal is to destroy you.

Yes, because

we have a very, very strong, well organized group of Ron Paul supporters in Oklahoma. I think we can have success if we stay involved, because we already have had some success.

Just look at the Congressional Districts

We won 60% of the National Delegates and 86% of the National Alternates at the Congressional Districts, and that is with another non-Roll Call election at 1 of the 5 CD's. We had, based on the first Credential Report of the State Convention, a (tight) majority. As you know, things went down hill at that point.

Next time we're going to bring 75% of the Delegates.

idiots dont care if they cheat

Seems as long as Obama is replaced people dont care so much,WELL I CARE and IM SICK of people referring to us as a small group of cult members,,wtf..back in december, in Greenville S.C. the interstate was closed because of a RON PAUL hot air baloon, What the hell do we have to do to get through to these people, my grandma is 90 and EVEN SHE can smell their B.S. and she doesnt even have internet. AND IF ONE MORE SOCCER MOM tells me a vote for Ron Is a
vote for Obama Im gonna , well, i m not gonna do anything
because like Ron, I dont tell people what to do.

am going to throw up....

into my phone if I hear anyone try to convince me to vote for this non-choice of a ticket. I will not be talking about politics to anyone in my immediate family until after we get past the general election.

Ron Paul balloon backed up traffic for 4 miles.

I looked for news about the hot air balloon that you mentioned and found several articles and some photos. I had a good laugh. Thanks.


You just have to be faster then them. A vote for Romney is a vote for Obama. It works for me. :)

Romney is another designated loser

His only job is to stop Ron Paul. If the GOP were in it to win they would not be trying to smear and disenfranchise their potential margin of victory.

How can a Romney Republican stand there and support someone who won't denounce indefinite detention of American citizens on American soil? What vile, godforsaken excuse for a moral code condones torture and murder of women and children with drones?

It will certainly be more fun to change history than to become a victim of it. Kick their craven butts, kids.

"To the morally inverted, war appears as a quick, clear path to the top." -- Preston Parker

I'm not so sure that Romney is scripted to lose

I believe that the two parties is an illusion for a monstrous fund-raising scheme and a way to make the people think they have a say (which decreases resistence). Getting Obama elected raised a ton of money. And they'll get lots more during this election whether he wins or not. But what happens after that.

Already, the GOP is having gobs of troubles (thanks to Ron Paul). The money and belief in democracy just isn't there anymore.

If Obama wins, he'll keep the war going, keep bailing out the banks, keep shunning gays, etc. All of which will tick off a LOT of liberals who are waking up to the fact that Obama has bamboozled them...that the left and right do the same things.

However, if Obama loses, the left can go bananas about how racist the right is. That will help polarize people and get that money/belief flowing again. Further, President Romney can continue the war, bail out the bank, shun gays, etc...all of which are classic neocon things to do...further polarizing the left and right in people's minds, which equates to more fund-raising.

Also, a Romney win means Mormons will means the government can tap into that Mormon money via other Mormon candidates. Next...President Cruise to tap into that Scientology money.

Another thing that seems to make me think the GOP will win is the movies slated for the near future. Action movies are coming back in a BIG way.

zombie support

Whatever support Rmoney has it is pretty well brainwashed. That is why the rhetoric has become so fierce on either side. When you have two opponents that stand for basically the same thing you have go all out with the "divide and conquer" strategy. You're right though. Rmoney is definitely controlled opposition. As weak as Obama is he does have more supporters out there even if he lost half of his base.


Is the Ron Paul campaign in all this?


where was the campaign during

where was the campaign during the primaries?

it was always the voters doing the work.


they have continually refused to help us. So, we are doing it all by ourselves!

Ben should run for office.

Ben should run for office. I'd work for that campaign.

It is sad how stupid Republicans are here in Tampa

we REALLY NEED you guys to come down to have some support. The Tampa Bay Young Republicans are horrendous conservatives conditioned to party unity and they are going to try to run the convention inside and out.

to Tampa. I'll be there Sunday afternoon, Lord willing .... and all the way until Sept. 1st :)!

I will be there

All week. Coming down from Alabama. Hope to meet you there!

Rules spring from policy

Since the gop policy is to push certain neocons, the rules will morph to assure that happens.

You cannot beat the gop using its own rules unless you can somehow make them abide by their rules via media pressure. But the media is run by the same folks who run the gop.

Great job, as usual, sir!

And a big thank you to my friend Q, for both getting this in front of Mr. Swann and for doing such a great job in her interview.

We are, of course, appealing the preliminary finding of the Committee on Contests. Our hearing is Monday morning in Tampa. The deadline for submission of our written Objection is tomorrow - I will be VERY HAPPY not to have to play lawyer any more and deal with arbitrary deadlines designed to prevent justice.

Thank you

for standing in the breach.

The GOP and RNC Doesn't Want Ron Paul To Challenge Romulan

Normally, there would be no challenge, however, The GOP and The RNC want the appearance of party unity. There is no party unity, but the perception must be that there is complete and total and complete unity..

Bullsh*it with that!

I hope Ron Paul gets his pluarity, gets nominated from the floor and beats the living sh*it out of "The Romulan"

Go Ron Paul....Peace!

i hear you. think about it,

i hear you. think about it, if it weren't for ron paul running for president this time, all of the candidates would have dropped out early on as planned. the lasted longer than usual to marginalize ron paul. i mean really, if they were serious about winning, then why did so many of them not even get on the ballot in all 50 states?

morning bump

Man thats some BS

If a miracle doesn't happen and Ron Paul doesn't become the nominee at the RNC...


I wish I was surprised.

But I'm not. If rules only apply when you want them to then there are no rules. Sad. Really sad. Wake up Amerika!
