From my friend in Tampa:

tsai3904 noted in a duplicte topic, this was to limit the future

http://www.politico.com/blogs/burns-haberman/2012/08/rnc-vot...

Undoubtedly still a vindictive ploy against Ron Paul's effort to be nominated this year, it was actually an attempt to limit competition at future conventions.

We should be fighting back

and trying to get the number of plurality states lowered from 5 to 2. That way we'd have a better chance of getting old-fashioned brokered conventions in the future, and no more coronations like the one the Romney folks want to ram through this year.

If they are trying this sort

If they are trying this sort of thing this late in the game, they must really be nervous.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Blessings )o(

LOL what the junk. I don't

LOL what the junk. I don't even anymore.

Hey, next they'll put a rule in saying if you were ever a doctor you can't be nominated. Or something. What a bunch of losers.

End The Fed!

top five ridiculous rule changes @ RNC

• if you have delivered over 3,990 babies you aren't eligible to be nominated
• if you have more than 26 grandchildren ... not allowed to be nominated
• if your congressional office returns money to the treasury you can't be nominated
• if you refuse to meet with corporate lobbyists ... NO NOMINATION for you!
• oh gee ... sorry NO DOCTORS allowed @ RNC ... didn't you get the memo?

Update on RNC Rules change from 5 States to 15 for plurality

Update from Jeremy Blosser concerning the RNC Rule change from 5 to 15 States needed to put forth a candidate into nomination.

Jeremy Blosser 25 min ago:

"They proposed changing it from 5 to 10, after debate that change failed! 5 remains."

I have been told this failed.

A very reliable source on the Committee has informed me this has failed. The standard stays at 5.

Maybe

What a considerate person he is. He sent me the update without even asking.

We can only hope

That they would . In front of the world this time. Cheat and disinfranchise the duly elected delegates. Won't be able to hide that from the people like the media did thru out this election process at local and state levels.
The world will be watching and our voices will be heard that way!

This is not a rumor

I dont think this is possible

I dont think this is possible for this election maybe next. Why are they so scared of Ron Paul?

FWIW...

I don't really understand this comment exactly, but here's an update regarding your comment:

"Rule 42 stipulates that Rules number 25-42 are the temporary rules of the convention. The rule concerning the number of states needed to nominate is rule 40(b). Therefore, they could be changed by the body anyway....but with debate over the Report of the Committee on Rules and Order of Business."

REPOST THIS> WE ALL MUST GO TO TAMPA

To succeed, the Ron Paul movement needs both the activists working within the Republican Party and the “radical pincers” outside it, Doherty argued.

That theory is about to be tested in the hot Florida sun on national television.

Winning

The fact that rumors have to be spread in an attempt to discourage us is proof we are WINNING!!! Ask yourself, would the RNC really do such a thing? It would be unbelievable fodder for Maddow and the Left. The RNC is hopelessly partisan, and not that self-destructive. This is just a rumor, meant to discourage us. The message is "Give up; you cannot win, no matter what." Guess what, if you feel the need to say that, it means it is NOT TRUE!! HA! Hammer down Patriots! Whoot!

Whatever!

When they do things like this that is when they find Ron Paul has plurality in 20+ states and they're standing there, mouths agape, with egg on their face.

Bet it was Benton that started that one

don't-cha-know

RAND PAUL or NOT AT ALL

It's rude to spread rumors

Jk

If your source is so "reliable"

Why is he spreading a "rumor". Just pointing out some of the more obvious contradictions here.

see comment below...

And he's not spreading rumors....I am.

Just like Paul Revere was an alarmist...
