Paul Attorney Threatens RNC, Romney Campaign

By Ralph Z. Hallow - The Washington Times

TAMPA — The lawyer for Ron Paul’s Oklahoma delegates to the Republican National Convention threatened Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee to withhold votes on Monday for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, according to the Oklahoma GOP chairman.

The Paul attorney told the RNC’s Committee on Contests that unless it seated the Paul delegates instead of those elected by the Oklahoma GOP, Paul supporters across the country would withhold their votes from Mr. Romney.

“That this lawyer turned a rules challenge into political blackmail was thuggish and certainly not the way to restore the first principles of this republic, which is the professed aim of the Ron Paul revolution,” Republican National Convention Vice Chairman Solomon Yue told The Washington Times.

It's actually over 30%

according to Doug Wead. Somewhere between 9-10.5 million voters.

It would be double that from independent and other minor parties if Paul is the nominee then you would have to add in all the neo-cons that would be forced to pile on to keep Obama out.

Ron Paul should somehow speak

Ron Paul should somehow speak out about Raub being detained against his will. he should do this before Tampa and get seen for it on MSM somewhere. Then bring it up in Tampa, that might spark an interest in people who have been clouded.

Are you kidding me

You can't see the provocation that was deliberately placed forth here. They are hoping Dr. Paul involves himself at this point in time. Just be ready for them to snatch more of us before the Convention ends.

An unconditional right to say what one pleases about public affairs is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment…Justice Hugo Black

If not us than who?

Not a good idea.

Raub has got some problems.

I don't know all that he said

I don't know all that he said on facebook. But I believe the point is that no matter what he said:
1)we all have the right of freedom of speech
2)No one has the right to detain us, let alone put us under psychiatric care, without our consent.
3)we all have the right to a lawyer
4)And last time I checked we are all innocent before proven guilty.

Even if the guy turns out to be a true psychopath, even psychopaths in America have rights.

don't we all?

The RNC is like the childhood

The RNC is like the childhood bully that finally gets his butt kicked and then cries for his mother.

Never cast a vote for MSM's chosen one

All Ron Paul delegates, whether you think you are bound or unbound.
NEVER CAST A VOTE FOR MITTENS.
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER,
What are they going to do to you?
Stand firm, and refuse to blindly follow their (RNC) rules.
PSSST...Pass the word now and throughout the convention center.
REMEMER BRANDON RAUB...Never capitulate, Never vote for MSM's chosen one. This could very well be your last opportunity to protest anything. If you are not pissed now, after what's happened with Brandon Raub, then I can't say anything that will convince you.

Pity the poor...

RNC...continually breaking their own rules and then crying foul when people get sick of it.
It's time to take it to 'em! Give them H&%L in Tampa!

"Thuggish political

"Thuggish political blackmail."

In other words, the RNC is a little nervous right now.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

The Audacity of the RNC

given the shenanigans and THUGGERY, i.e. broken bones of delegates, by forces loyal to Mitt's goons during the primaries. A second classic and unbelievable statement in a single evening!

Riddle me this,

how is it thuggish when you are dealing with THUGS?

Thugery is a mild term my friends

I prefer to call it a criminal enterprise

Yeah enterprises

get better tax write-offs.

You know that's not what I meant! 8) Not to worry. We've all been through a rollercoaster of mood swings this campaign season.

You don't say...

Sounds like everything everyone has been asking from the Campaign...

So, are we all back in this thing 100% again? Kokesh? Jones?...Rand?

Jack Wagner

Rand...He may be a full blown turd at this point...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!

Maybe thuggish, but it's the truth!

I won't vote for him.
