Reporting from Paul Fest Day 1 (Palin is in Tampa to Cause Brokered Convention)

Reporting from Paul Fest Day 1 (Palin is Tampa to Cause Brokered Convention)

Working my booth at the Paul Fest today, The Wealth Creation Revelation booth, Lew Rockwell was hanging out for a few hours in front of the booth. That was awesome. I am hearing the following via word of mouth:

1) There was a disinformation attack on RP. Reports were leaked that RP conceded and said that if he won the nomination he would not accept it. The report was unfounded; Ron Paul himself came out and made a follow up statement saying that if is nominated HE WILL ACCEPT THE NOMINATION.

2) Sara Palin is in town and playing games, she is trying to steal the nomination, she sent out packets to all of the delegates asking them to vote for her if there is a brokered convention and she is trying to cause a brokered convention. I spoke to delegates at my booth who said they received the packet. None of our delegates will vote for her, putting my dislike for her aside, if she helps with a brokered convention I am fine with it because I think we could win a brokered convention.

3) Gingrich released his delegates today! And a delegate told me they are expecting Santorum to release his soon!

4) A North Carolina delegate told that there was some shuffling of delegates and North Carolina picked up a few more RP delegates.

Palin in a nutshell:

Reporter: Governor Palin can you name a yellow fruit?

Palin: An orange?

Her boobs are fake and so are her politics.

to those of you voting me down...

go watch the video of the bubbly Katie Couric interviewing Palin. Once you have watched the video, come back and comment.

Palin is not that smart, not that well educated, and is a lightweight....she is a cheerleader and nothing more. Palin supports the wars. Wars = more debt. It is debt that is going to destroy the country. Therefore Palin would destroy the country.

Palin is NOT Ron Paul...not even close.

Watch the video.

I thought she got a boob job.

I thought she got a boob job. Of course the media doesn't report on that. They have to worry about snooki's baby being born.


You two are disgusting.

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.

Ron Paul should come out and

Ron Paul should come out and say that Palin will at least be in his administration then we can truly unite the party.

The establishment will have to vote for Paul because by their own logic they want anybody but Obama (they will even vote for Obama light).

I hope Palin stirs up

I hope Palin stirs up trouble.

This will make the convention worth watching. We all know that there are much more better candidates than Mitt Romney out there, and I could essentially see Paul and Palin supporters rallying in opposition to a coronation that was planned before the primaries even began.

to be honest

I like Palin much more than Romney. She is still learning but seems to have a heart for liberty. More and more she is coming around to the Paul's positions. I'd much prefer Palin to Romney any day. I could see Palin Republicans and Ron Paul Republicans working well together. I am very dissapointed with the outcome in Maine and our delgates, and the GOP shenanigans. They will do anything to shut out Ron Paul's message, and little by little the platform continues to incorporate (in name only) more of Paul's policies on gold, money and spending. The only problem is that it's primarily lip service and they'll continue propping up the MIA mafia until we're at 2-3 trillion a year in defense spending and cut entitlements across the board - making the economic scene even more fascist in this country. I'd much rather see entitlements than any more money spent on warfare. I want to write in Ron Paul. I dont' think Johnson is a bad candidate, he's much better than Romney or Obama, and i'd definitely consider voting for him if the GOP makes things even uglier.

Peace, Freedom and Prosperity. Not War, Welfare and Bankruptcy.


I'm not a huge Palin fan but

I'm not a huge Palin fan but she's definitely helped us in the past. She has only really had good things to say about Ron Paul, and has defended his non-interventionism and stance on Israel, something few other Republicans have done. She also helped get Rand Paul elected. I think we should give her credit where credit is due.

That being said, if she is anywhere near a presidential ticket, a loss is virtually ensured.

The Daily Paul Gossip or just
The Daily Gossip..anyway thanks for all rumor sharing.

Look what is going around on twitter.

No Unity 4 @MittRomney. Delegates r now going 2 vote 4 Rick, Newt, Ron & Sarah cuz of #GOP convention rule changes #TAMPA #TCOT #LNYHBT

I re-tweeted it and then posted it as an original and re-tweeted everyone that re-tweeted me. It may be mis-information, but I don't care. It could wake up some people:

(the #'s mean TCOT=top conservatives on twitter LNYHBT is to the FOX news zombies who watch Hannity it means "let not your heart be troubled"-it's what Hannity says when he signs off.

copy and tweet if you have a twitter.

Bix Weir strikes again!

Maybe this roadtoroota stuff will play itself out!

for someone who has been trying to fix this country why would they NOT accept the opportunity to well...FIX IT! I always knew if Nominated RP would accept it. RON PAUL ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE!!

Good news!

watching from Australia!

Same Here

G'day Sheldon!

All the power to her...

I wonder how many stealth delegates she has. She honestly wouldn't make such a calculated move if she didn't have support from delegates. I wonder if she does have delegates that truly support her but ran stealthily under the Santorum, Romney, or Paul banners.

She and her husband were for Newt

Probably lots of Newt's and a spattering of the rest. I don't think any would be in the Paul camp because once they saw what he is all about, they would stay.

Lady Blah-Blah??!

Doesn't everybody ALREADY hate pseudo-Republicans?......Not enough damage done yet?


Thanks for the report,

Thanks for the report, Wincap. Let people know that the WORLD is watching on the edge of their seats.

go for it Sarah!

If Palin caused a brokered convention I would forgive her for everything.

This sounds too good to be

This sounds too good to be true. How credible do you think this information about Palin is? Is it just a rumor, or is it really something more?


the packet contained

info telling people why they are *not* bound and can vote for anyone they want even if they are not officially on the ballot. She wants people to vote for anybody but Romney (preferably her). As long as they don't vote for Romney then he won't get the magic number.

I did not personally see the packet but, someone posted a pdf of something on the disk in the packet in another post on this site.

You are right...

...I read the .pdf as well. The Palinquake group (or whatever they are called) are basically pushing the idea to vote Palin in the FIRST round even though she is not on the ballot. They know the votes wouldn't be counted, but it would mean fewer votes for Romney, and HOPEFULLY cause him to fall short of 1144, and after that....

Go ahead Sarah, make our day!

That would mean a lot of Santorum votes.


Look up palinquakes.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

If delegates are unbound

how can Gingrich or Santorum release their delegates...Sounds like they're releasing their slaves...vote your conscience..PERIOD.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow
