Last Chance for Freedom - Peace Prevails Gathering in TampaSubmitted by PeacePrevailsPamela on Mon, 08/20/2012 - 12:55
We all know deep down that our last chance for freedom is to elect Dr. Ron Paul as our president. Our last chance to make this happen is in Tampa on August 27th, when the RNC voting begins. We must convince a certain number of delegates to vote with their conscience on the 1st round of voting. Otherwise the ‘presumptive candidate’ becomes ‘the candidate’. Our solution – the Peace Prevails 2012 gathering.
Many have debated the legality of delegates breaking their binding and “voting with their conscience,” on the FIRST round of voting for Dr. Ron Paul (since all delegates are unbound after the first round). While I myself am not a constitutional lawyer, I thankfully am friends with one who happens to be a fellow Paulitarian. For all of your questions about the ‘unit rule’ and other legalese details, I will refer you to his document, “In-Depth Analysis of Delegate Binding. (1)”
In short, voting is a form of speech! Just as it is legal for a congressman (or president) to break a campaign promise, it is also legal for delegates to break their bindings, since they are technically not under any legal contract. In this case, breaking their binding is not only legal right, but – a moral obligation.
So what are we doing about this?
It takes strength and the moral compass of someone like Ronald Ernest Paul to stand up against the forces of tyranny alone. So, on August 27th we will gather in Tampa to remind delegates that they are not alone in this fight to preserve our Constitutional freedoms. However, there is something special about our gathering. IT WILL BE IN COMPLETE SILENCE.
Our SILENCE will serve 2 key purposes. First, it will unify Paulitarians in silent prayer/meditation that will affect the delegates as they enter the RNC. (The power of group prayer/meditation in reducing violent crime has been well studied in Washington, D.C. (2)). Second, it will give local law enforcement absolutely zero reason to break up our gathering, and will encourage local authorities to be kind oath keepers of the constitution.
Our event is called PEACE PREVAILS 2012.
We ask that those joining in Tampa will WEAR WHITE (or their favorite white Ron Paul shirt) to remind delegates that our message is pure. We will synchronize our meeting location via a mass text message/email sent out the night before (for many reasons, we will not disclose this ahead of time – but we have worked with local police – and our location is safe). At 7AM Eastern Daylight Time, our silence will begin. If you cannot make it to Tampa, join in our silent prayer/meditation from wherever you are around the globe. We already anticipate a number to join in from Mexico, Afghanistan, and Finland.
