Daily Oklahoman Editorial: Ron Paul Backers Need to Give up the fight

Their reasoning? Since the RNC denied our complaint, obviously our complaint lacks any merit...

Paul's backers continue to seek the replacement of the Oklahoma delegation to the Republican National Convention with a pro-Paul group. They insist procedural rules were broken at the state convention, contending a standing vote of delegates was improper and a paper-ballot vote required.

To most, that's a difference without much distinction. That's likely why the Republican National Committee rejected the request to change delegates.

Show them some love:

Oklahoma is always having weather troubles.

They need to repent.

Why?

Why should anyone take this media hack to task, when Ron Paul himself is too much of a pussy to stand on his hind legs and call out the RNC for its malfeasance?

Screw Ron Paul. I'm voting for Obama, and arming against the revolution a-brewin'.

--Norm

Now here is something

Now here is something interesting! A man who plans to arm himself for a revolution... while voting for the man who would love nothing more than to disarm him.

Could you explain this further for us?

Simple.

Paul does not want the Presidency.

The Republicans don't want a Paul presidency.

Johnson will not win.

Romney will lull people whose tails are currently in a twist, back to sleep. The magic (R) rune will cast a spell on them.

Obama will keep them stirred up, agitated, and mad as a hornet's nest.

This is what we need.

Obama will not disarm me (totally -- there are lots of ways to hide weapons -- I'll give up one or two that have paperwork.)

Those who would make a peaceful revolution impossible (RNC), make violent revolution inevitable. --JFK

--Norm

Well, I asked

"Paul does not want the Presidency."

Perhaps, which in my estimation is a good thing for a man not to want. I saw his candidacy as a call to duty, rather than a quest for office. Wishful thinking? Again perhaps.

"The Republicans don't want a Paul presidency."

Depending on what you mean by 'Republican', some do, while the majority does not. If by 'Republican' you mean those who actually control the party, then your blanket statement is of course accurate.

"Romney will lull people whose tails are currently in a twist, back to sleep. The magic (R) rune will cast a spell on them."

This is perhaps your most important point. But the question is who do you mean when you say 'people'? In the past, the way I looked at the dark hood (called the 'two party system') pulled over the heads of most Americans by the media, public schools and our government, is that some folks, who like to be call 'conservative', can be awaken far easier than another huge political demographic who like to be called by various names - names like liberal, moderate or progressive. Time and experience have proved me wrong. Indeed, there is however a huge contingent of folks who will no doubt think that no matter how poorly Romney performs, things would have been ten times more disastrous had the other snake won the race. And there in lies your most important point, in my opinion.

But there is more to consider, which makes your point even more important (again, in my opinion). The longer Obama has been in, and the more disappointing he has become to those who envisioned a progressive paradise, the more and more those on the so called 'left' doubt their choice. And interestingly enough, I have found that a self proclaimed progressive is far more likely to admit he has been duped, than is a self proclaimed 'conservative'.... at least, that has been my experience thus far. Thus, perhaps an Obama win is more advantageous to our cause in the long run.

"Obama will keep them stirred up, agitated, and mad as a hornet's nest."

And perhaps this will be the case on both sides of the false 'left vs right' divide.

Mr. Carter

It's clear you have never heard of Ben Swann and his Reality Check reports who take media hackjobs like you to the woodshed.

For The Power of The Republic!

GOP - the party of cheaters

So many incidents of fraud, cheating, lying, breaking their own rules ... the GOP is BEGGING for the great walkout...
The simultaneous great walkout of 2012 by hundreds of liberty delegates in protest of multiple rule violations together with a massive departure nationwide from the GOP. These fools are gonna lose 35% of their party overnight. They've treated the liberty movement like trash, now they're hurling public insults at us. I see no point in trying to change the party from within - even when we have majorities they cheat steal lie cheat payoff ... did I mention THEY CHEAT?

The editorial sections of

The editorial sections of most major newspapers have LONG been controlled by international interests. These newspapers still plod along with their efforts to sway public opinion. The Daily Oklahoman is no exception. Just keep hitting them back and exposing their nonsense. SOME rules are in place for a REASON and ignoring them has consequences. State clearly those consequences. Ben Swann of a Fox News affiliate in Cincinnati, OH has just released an episode of Reality Check demonstrating that the RNC doesn't even follow its own rules. The consequence of SELECTIVE enforcement of those rules has led to CRIMINAL discrimination against Ron Paul and his supporters while defrauding Ron of delegates necessary for nominating Ron for POTUS in Tampa. Without a FAIR and IMPARTIAL nominating process, the RNC might as well crown their presumptive nominee and eliminate the charade of selecting a nominee by the rank-and-file members of the GOP. Well, in fact, the RNC is attempting to do precisely the latter and apparently the writer approves of the RNC's fraudulent tactics of selectively enforcing its own rules and REPLACING duly ELECTED delegations with fraudulently SELECTED delegations approved by the RNC. Use this unfortunate situation to actually EDUCATE the INDOCTRINATED public. We ALL witnessed via video the shenanigans that occurred during Oklahoma's state convention of the GOP.

Go RON PAUL

I Emailed Judge Andrew Napolitano

Judge I wanted to share my personal story about 2012 politics. I live in Florida and I registered as a Republican just to vote Ron Paul in the Primary.

After reading and seeing all the Video proof online of Republicans cheating and taking away delegates in states they clearly lost it really makes me wonder something.

If this is what they do to "One of their own fellow Republicans" what would they do to Democrats? Not only that, I am totally disgusted with the Republican party that I will only write in Ron Paul or Not vote at all because I know that they do rigging out in the open now and I'm convinced our votes don't count.

Imagine the image the youth (I'm 35) the 18-25 crowd who sees all of this going on what kind of example it is setting. They are now going to think that they can go into politics and cheat and seal their way to the top because their elders are sore losers that get the final results to reflect what they want OR ELSE! I wonder what they are teaching their own kids?

Thanks for all your hard work Judge just thought I would share this.
The Republican Party in 2012 has destroyed the view our youth has on politics, yet it has only strengthen their anger and will to succeed in the future because what goes around comes around!

Regards,

Matt F.

That is difference between back room dealing and above board

If they had the vote the RNC would not of objected to a paper vote.
By the rules a paper ballot may be called for by anyone and it was.
They have lied and replaced the rightful delegates with there own hand pick Romney supporters and committed fraud.

Actually the rule states

Actually the rule states explicity that the election for national delegates MUST be done by roll call vote, which is paper ballot. this is because the delegates at our state convention have weighted votes. Not every delegate is equal to one vote, some are up to two votes and some are a fraction thereof. So a standing vote in no way can give you an accurate tally, especially if it is a close vote.
