Let Me Get This Straight

Correct me if I'm wrong but let me ask the following:

1) Did the delegate compromises we made prevent us from getting a plurality in states that we would've had (and deserved) one in? If so, why would these compromises be made?!

2) The nomination process was moved from Wednesday to Monday? Bob Wenzel (of EPJ) seemed to think that the reason was to give our people as little time as possible to organize. I wonder if some of our delegates were planning to get there Wednesday to vote but will miss out now that it's on Monday.

3) Kurt Bills endorses Romney after Ron and Rand endorse him?? And he endorses Romney PRIOR TO the convention?? Same w/ Rand obviously but that's "old news" at this point.

4) The laws all seem to favor the establishment when it comes to the RNC. Everything I hear is "it's a private organization and they can do what they want". If that's the case then isn't the whole thing pointless? I totally understand that the campaign has had an enormous educational effect but what about winning the nomination? I mean, what's to stop the RNC from saying "Ron Paul won but we're a private organization so Mitt Romney will be the nominee. Too bad!"

I remember a debate

someone help me out here..What was the question ? Who on this stage would you select as running mate? Or was it most admired?
Remember Gary Johnson said Congressman Paul..
Well anyway what I'm getting at is what if Gary Johnson announces that his running mate is Ron Paul. Does he have one yet?
Dr Paul 's ego is not the issue there. Not a bad team if you ask me.
Ha ha Wouldn't that be neat

According

to the RP Delegate conf. call (going on as i write this tonight), the answer is NO. Additionally a comment was made that RP would not accept a nomination if it were made - at this point in time.

It took Lincoln three days of convincing to accept the nomination. He didn't even know he had been nominated at the convention until they showed up at his front door. George Washington declined the nomination at first too.

are you saying RP has a chance

cuz it seems like they are hitting us hard right now, we can sure use a miracle

Very interesting

I did NOT know that!

My take

1. Least we forget the Palin Earthquake, they are trying to give us an open convention, which if they do, the plurality won't matter anyways. To my count Ron had 9 states, but I have not done the since the change

2. I think it has more to do with the weather because Tampa is worried.

3. The endorsement of Romney only tells me, tptb had a talk with Bills and reminded him, as they did Rand, of the loyalty oath. (no one bothered with Ron Paul as he was a loner.. he is no longer a loner, so they are using that loyalty oath.. I can only hope we get the opportunity to use it on them, but to do that we need to fill those seats, which Palin's grassroots are coming for in masse.

4. All political parties are in part of the establishment, as they all have by-laws that are registered with the counties and states they operate in. Our problem is the "area councils" where there is a relationship, stealth relationship, between governors, previous elected presidents, VPs. Sec... and CEOs of major corporations.. it's a problem because someone like Jeb Buch, or Bill Clinton makes a "friendly" phone call and talks to Rand or Bills into doing "the right thing", (if they want to remain in office). This is why we need to fill those seats.. they NEED US to be backing them.. not cheering them, but seated and backing them.

I'm hoping for that Palin Earthquake, but

I don't think they have reached enough people, or they are flying super low under the radar. I don't think she really even knows much about it. They waited til the 11th hour. Maybe this was to keep it secret longer. What is your take on that?

I'm cheering for a

Santorum Shitstorm myself although a Gingrich Gastric Explosion will do just fine.

Secretary of the Treasury - RON PAUL

If the GOP pulls this snow-job off, Gary Johnson should announce that he will appoint Dr. Paul as his Treasury Secretary, if he wins the election!

He'd DEFINITELY get my vote!

If Ron Doesn't Get The Nomination...

...I'll be voting for Gary Johnson. I don't care if "it's a vote for Obama". To me, Obama and Mittens are essentially the same candidate.

What if?

A Johnson / Paul ticket is announced? Dr Pauls ego wouldn't preclude it... hmmm just a thought

Misunderstanding

Ron and Rand supported Kurt Bills. Then Kurt Bills turned around and endorsed Romney. Ron has not endorsed Romney

A lot of shadiness

A lot of shady things have been happening lately. I feel like we should still have the 5 states though from what I have heard. We'll see soon.

We should have won more than

We should have won more than that. We should have at least ten states. Romney and the establishment has been pulling strings to make sure he gets his way. The GOP establishment knows that they can't keep this s#@t up. They fear us. The people must not fear the government. The government should feat the people.

I know this sounds spiteful,

but I'd be happy to see Dr. Paul go Independent - just to kick Romney in the teeth. Wouldn't that be a sight to see.

SO MANY would be THRILLED to see RP go independent...

...not to spite Romney but for the sake of LIBERTY! Spite is deliberate hurt. The hurt would just be the fruit of a victory for freedom and as painful as that might be for those who hate America, that wouldn't really hurt anyone now would it?

I'd be happy to see Ron Paul go Independent - to have Ron Paul as the next president of the United States. Wouldn't that be a sight to see - a non-partisan people's president.

Ron Paul never said he

Ron Paul never said he wouldn't go third party. He said he had no intentions.

"no intentions" at this point in time

Well that was way back when. he did indicate "we'll see when we get to that point" It's on video. Wolf blitzer.

Keepin' it real.

Me Too

But I don't think it's even possible. I heard something about a "sore loser" law.

Doesn't the "sore loser" law only apply to parties not indys?

Still don't know if the "sore loser" law would apply to RP should he run truly, independent.

I "think" it only applies to "parties" -wishful thinking maybe.

Oh, if RP runs independent, that will be so exciting!!!!!!!!!!!! So many people from ALL and NO parties would vote for him.

How ironic

Sore loser law. What about cheater laws ?

Very good. The cheaters are the real sore losers!

Really, really sore Losers!

RP going independent would be the only current remedy to the upset and disappointment of the last several weeks. Because then, we'd know that RP took it as far as he could.
