Ron Paul Five (5) State Plurality: Does He Qualify To Be Nominated At The RNC?

Ron Paul Five (5) State Plurality: Does He Qualify To Be Nominated At The RNC?

With less than a week before the RNC, many of us Ron Paul supporters are in the dark as to weather Ron Paul can be nominated at the RNC.

Campaign chairman Jesse Benton has been silent on the nomination process, so what are we to believe? Are we going to find out the day of the nomination that he didn't qualify?

Jesse Benton! The silence is deafening..

Here's How I Think This Plays Out

There are legal battles that extend past the RNC. Romney is the only one eligible for nomination and Ron doesn't push the issue. At some point down the line, it's shown that Dr. Paul did have 5 states but the MSM treats that as just a footnote to the story.

sure he does..cause I say so

WHY are you waiting for permission to advance ...FROM THE ENEMY? Who fucking cares WHAT THEY SAY. You don't accept the enemies terms... you destroy the enemy!!! Instead all I hear is "did the rnc rule on whether Paul's name is placed in nomination? Fuck that...we won Maine twice..we make the rules. If you want Paul to be nominated you better be willing to take it cause the establishment obviously isn't going to hand you their power. Instead the are going to continue to change the rules and lie and cheat until someone persuades them not to. I bet the prospect of 10,000 angry liberty loving patriots bent on physically taking back what was rightfully earned would be pretty persuasive.

Change your attitude people and you will change your results. Stop acting like losers and you will be treated like winners.

Delegates go to see if that is true. Shame to lose by one again.

"Jesse Benton! The silence is deafening.." Is that your way of saying thanks?

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.

How Could Anyone In The Paul Camp Make A Deal To Kill Our

chances to make the nomination possible?

In my opinion the article by Politico is Disinformation

It simply follows the same pattern of fear to stop us before the convention.

These deals

are designed to make sure he does not have the five states. If they only give half of he delegates in Maine to Paul, there goes his plurality and it sounds like that is what happened in Louisiana.

But Where does it say a plurality "prior" to the Convention?

I cannot find it in the document.

I believe it is so.

If you read the rules, under Rule 38, there is no language stating that the plurality must be prior to the Convention.

a) In making the nominations for President
of the United States and Vice President of the United
States and voting thereon, the roll of the states shall be
called separately in each case; provided, however, that
if there is only one candidate for nomination for Vice
President of the United States who has demonstrated
the support required by paragraph (b) of this rule, a
motion to nominate for such office by acclamation shall
be in order and no calling of the roll with respect to
such office shall be required.

b) Each candidate for nomination for
President of the United States and Vice President of the
United States shall demonstrate the support of a
plurality of the delegates from each of five (5) or more
states, severally, prior to the presentation of the name of
that candidate for nomination.
