Romney lawyers took away Ron Paul's win in Maine making Paul ineligible

Mitt Romney's campaign and allies have effectively quelled the Ron Paul revolution at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. On Thursday, the 168-member Republican National Committee approved a report that invalidated Ron Paul's claim to a plurality of delegates in Maine. The RNC voted to split the at-large delegation in half. In order to be eligible for nomination for president, a candidate needs to have a plurality of delegates in five states. Ron Paul had five, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Oregon, Oklahoma, and Maine. Without Maine, he now has four.

The RNC attempted to raise the number of states a plurality was needed in to 10 on Wednesday, but that amendment was denied. The attempted raise to 10 states angered many who claimed that the only reason the RNC would try this would be to block Ron Paul from possibly stealing the nomination at the convention. Despite that amendment being blocked, the RNC and Mitt Romney seem to have accomplished what they wanted.

It's up to us

In about a week, Ron Paul will be sitting on his back patio chilling while Carol makes him dinner, enjoying a quieter time with kids and grandkids.

The old soldier is now 77, and as served us all for 30+ years. He took on the machine and we all found out how powerful the machine is.

He just spoke, without manipulation and charisma, just truth and the young people went wild.

He woke us up, and I will be forever grateful to him for turning on the light bulb in my head and heart.

I will be at USF and I will go out of admiration and respect of this true American patriot.

Hold your heads up high, do not allow anyone to take away our dignity, and please remain respectful to Dr. Paul for everything he has done.

We're just getting started. Thank you Dr. Paul.

Thanks, phenn, for giving me a hopeful clear perspective!

Your comment here and the success.council youtube below firmed up my VISION as I begin my travel out to Tampa today.

Ron Paul compared to Ghandi - Predictions for Republican Paul at the RNC

No more fretting. No more whining from me. Just a redoubled conviction that (1) FREEDOM is a fight worth fighting and (2) the most enduring victory comes when we NEVER lose heart or degrade ourselves to the level of vicious dirty-trick-oppressors & become violent.

He still

has 5. Stop listening to the faux enemedia newz

Keepin' it real.

We get more truth and important info from Ben Swan then we do

the campaign. To me that's an embarrasing observation to make and it is is apparently true. Why the deafening silence from Tate, Benton, Olson and Dr. Ron..

Oh, sorry, I forgot, the campaign is using some kind of stealth strategy and can't reveal anything that Romney might use against us. Meanwhile our delegates are being stripped away and given over to "The Romulan" So we just have to wait to hear from Ben what should be coming from the campaign..


Not even Romneys lawyers,

can stop an idea whose time has come:)

They just did...


This links to an Examiner article which links to the

Politico article as the basis for the claim. I was not aware that an RNC committee "approving" a report was part of the delegate credentialing process. Real information please.

I'm Not Playing Games

I bought this flight for a reason and I will be there electing Ron Paul.

I like that

attitude man. Short and sweet. I hope all the Paul delegates are on your level!

So Much Bullsh#it From Every Direction..Does He Or Does He Not

have a 5 state plurality?

As usual, the incompetent Benton is silent...

This is just ridiculous!

Paul and Benton and Olson, nothing but silence...


I hope you guys realize they

I hope you guys realize they wouldn't be doing this if they didn't have to, meaning that if they didn't do this they would lose. They wouldnt be doing this if they had it in the bag.

. . . and are we really THAT helpless & tactless, but to just

politely let them DO this to us?!?


Hushhhhhh. What Romney and Priebus don't know can completely devastate them.

Evil is Raising its Ugly Head

It is time to knock it off. Godspeed Dr. Paul, all the way to the White House!

He has more than 5. Just google the Ben Swan video stating this.

They are just trying to scare us and dumb down the already dumbed down population.

Those states are from Politico

who claims it's from the campaign. I guess we'll see what happens tomorrow.
