Republican Party In Uproar Over Romney/RNC Power Grab.
This should answer it! This blatant cheating in Maine and their shutting out grassroots as far as 2016 plus their ignoring the 6 states' signatures to nominate Paul at the RNC this week and changing the rules to require 8 states for nomination at the last second. Infuriating! It's time to go 3rd party I say. If only for THIS election! What does Ron Paul have to lose? He's not running republican anymore for anything ever.
... what a spoiled brat... smug faced Ryan... what a turn off...
In November, if there isn't a Libertarian in a particular race, I'll vote Democrat for the first time in my life... for every action there is a reaction.
Thank you Ben for reporting on this. Will be sharing with friends/family - liberals and conservatives.
who will select the GOP delegates next election when it is now quite clear Rmoney will not win the presidency. Do some dictatorial powers over delegates from the states even matter when there will be perhaps nothing like a GOP next time after this chain of pathetic moves?
I like that Ben has cut the interview up into segments and he is going to review each segment this week and fact check the answers that Romney/Ryan give.
This segment was an eye opener for anyone who is not aware how duplicitous and authoritarian Romney is. He pretends he knows nothing about the way the Maine delegation is being treated yet it is his campaign who have initiated the process. He says that is just the political stuff that he implies he is not involved with. He is not involved with the political machinations of his campaign?
What he means is: "I give the orders and leave it to my lawyers to get the job done. I don't care how they do it, just so long as they get it done".
Those are the words of a dictator.
"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
How does this usurpation of power on a smaller level lend credibility to the republican small government message? How are people supposed to believe that usurpations of power on a smaller level wont be indicative of how you operate your office as President of the United States?
Problem with Romney lying like this on camera -
Is it's provable that it is completely wrong, and when it's proven even more so, it will be another - this time a national story.
Ben Swann is playing this all week during the GOP convention with where Romney lied. And he'll play it again as the above segment is shown to be completely false and that Romney is behind the delegate removals and power grabs.
When you lie on camera, the original interview is a story, and showing it to be a complete cover up is another. Ben Swann knows what he is doing.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
Morton Blackwell, the biggest opponent to this power grab, who is on the rules committee is not being allowed in the convention today.
Is playing a very dangerous game

This new rule eliminates the need or even usefulness of Delegates. If Delegates are picked by the Party Leadership and not by the Party Members, then there is no reason to have delegates or even Elections for that matter.
Of what use is it to be a Republican (Representative form of Government) if one is deprived of Representation? It's an oxymoron!
The Republican Party has just sealed its fate. My prediction is that the Democrats (Mob Rule) and the Republicans (Elite Rule) will join forces before the 2016 Elections. They will have to in order to counter the growing number of Libertarians and Independents who just can't stomach another 4 years of Elite Mob Rule, aka Lesser of Two Evils.
The D's and R's will not, they cannot, stop f'ing the American over. Once they lose power, they will lose EVERYTHING.
I am astonished that no one has asked this question, yet... How can Mitt Romney be lobbying for all of these rule changes if hes NOT the nominee? He's just another guy in the race until the delegates decide who's the nominee. Who or what gave him the power and authority to decree these rule changes, delegate disqualifications, rescheduling of the convention and so forth?
It boggles my mind knowing that not only is the rest of the Republican Party members not outraged by this, but that they are allowing these acts of fraud, coersion, intimidation and lies to continue!
Romney has committed the following crimes (that I know of)...correct any of them, if you notice an error.
1) Rigged votes via diebold machine hacking, ballot stuffing, hired brutality at local and state conventions. False arrests for "trespassing".
2) In Wisconsin, He and Paul Ryan sponsor a sub lunch for votes...crime
3) Hasn't paid taxes on millions in off-shore accounts...tax evasion
4) Perpetrator of an $8B ponzy scheme with his son...fraud
5) Disqualifies duly-elected delegates in: Maine, Massachusettes, Louisiana, Oregon...now Georgia and Arizona, too.
5.1) Reduces Ron Paul's plurality by seizing said delegates above.
5.2) Forces said delegates to vote for HIM or excludes them from the convention altogether. This is in direct conflict with what the RNC said about not recognizing state binding of delegates. "...each delegate is a free agent, and may vote their conscience..."
5.3) Petitioned the RNC to change the five state plurality rule to eight.
6) And this is the biggest one, in my opinion, but the change in the primary/caucus process by having to apply via the RNC to become a delegate?! Dafuq, man?!
When will this madness stop and/or come to a head? The MSM can only keep this locked down for so long before it starts bursting at the seams.
Please add anything I missed. Thanks!

A vote for mittens is a vote for fascism and tyranny.
A vote for obama is an endorsement of all he stands for, has done, and will continue to do.
A 'write-in' is a wasted vote to be stolen.
A vote for 'Anyone' else is to send a message, loud and clear..we don't want your establishment hacks.

Yes, Swann an eagle.
Romney said he wasn't aware of what had happened to the delegates? The deceit is so overt as to not be believed. One MORE post at the Daily Paul that I find surreal.

PLease, oh God please let the RNC kick out 100% of the grassroot Republicans. Now, with zero power and zero influence, we can finally move towards that beloved third party. I'm done with these guys. Honestly I hope the RNC loses big in this election. I hope the Democrats destroy what's left of democracy and that the GOP is reduced to nothing. Their persistent elevating of moderates and straight up liberal Republicans has to hurt them, or they will never learn.

Tonight! we dine in the RNC!!
Ok guys, spread this video now! like im doing, specialy in romney fan forums and gop forums all over the web.
Its time to wake people UP!!
that some of those "romney supporters" had brains to figure out that this shit is NOT good. Since the entire process is so convoluted across the country from what it "was" (lol..) it will be difficult for the uninformed to realize it. Since they are uninformed mostly (otherwise they would be posting on here if they were really conservatives) they wont have any clue of the implications of this .. cant even put it into words.. change of process.

time to tear down the wall!
a different question with response from Romney, then elaborating on it. Should be very interesting.
somehow, i dont think he will get an interview from obama, and he sure wont get one from romney again.
Agreed...that is what is so great with this guy! He chose the right journalist path. If most journalists chose the same path our public figures wouldn't dare spew the nonsense they do because people would be fact checking and calling them on their lies. They would still need to promote themselves so they would need to get their house in order - a win win. Unfortunately for us, media is controlled and those who want to get the big scoop (full of dung) must kiss ass. This guy made a smart move because he can make a bigger name for himself by defying the overlords and getting a real scoop. He took his chance and made the most of it - much better to get one great scoop one time then a regular scoop of poop.
I thought the same thing about Obama, but who cares...we all know he's a fraud and Ben ain't going to convince the lefties by presenting any evidence on a Fox affiliate. He just presented that part to show he is attempting to be unbiased in his criticism so the neocons don't jump on him for sacrificing their sacred cow Romney.
We appreciate your nerve!
Tear down the RNC in order to build something new and better. Rarely does change come without catastrophe .. the meteoric rise of Neocon extremism grew from 9/11 for instance after having been fermented by PNAC. We need another "9/11" on the republican party in order for the mindset of freedom and liberty to go mainstream. These shenanigans prove that the current 'leaders' of the republican party have lost their way and the more they fight the more the cause of liberty will be furthered. I spent money donating to Paul not because I thought he would win...that was never going to happen as long as there is tyranny... it was all about waking people up from their slumber. Why? Only a real revolution by the majority (or substantial minority) of people will change the path we are on. And the path to revolution is founded in anarchy born out of frustration and hopelessness. The youth are carrying the flame now and will be taking the Old out of GOP. It is up the the rest of us to shield that flame from propaganda and lies born from the knowledge of having experienced the power of such weapons of mass delusion.
