VA Delegation Bus being Redirected away from Convention to prevent them from voting against Rules Committee Power Grab

https://www.facebook.com/johnchristopherstearns/posts/479075...

The Virginia and Rhode Island delegations are apparently being blocked from entering the Republican National Convention. They're keeping us all on a bus and not allowing us in the security perimeter.

Please share this news with your friends.

Don't blame the GOP

Surely, the GOP would NEVER do such a thing, rather blame the GPS that the bus had, yeah that's it, the GPS malfunctioned. Got it?

Virginia will not forget!

A shameful day for the GOP, for our Republic, for justice.

Yes, Romney & Co. you can treat Virginians like dirt, but justice will be done!

Your actions in a single day have greatly strengthened the liberty movement in Virginia.

Magna est veritas, et prevalebit. Truth is most powerful, and will ultimately prevail.

Iowa delegation did NOT have a bus assigned to them...

As near as any of us can tell, there never was a bus assigned to pick us up. The volunteer lady at our hotel decided to call and insist that another bus be redirected to transport us or we would still be standing there waiting. As it was the bus was almost an hour late and not all of the alternates (including Yours Truly) were allowed onto that bus. There was another bus behind it that was almost empty, but the RNC would NOT let the remaining alternates onto that bus. (I finally drove a RENTED CAR and parked almost two miles away from the convention.)

The Virtual Conspiracy

Force = Force

How is it Romney has the power to get rid of people? How bout Paul supporters start getting rid of people using the same imaginary power Romney has? Your power is as valid as theirs. The supreme court was designed to deliberate on such prescient controversial illegal power-grab matters as Romney's campaign has displayed. I doubt many of the justices aren't familiar with this controversy since Nevada voters were muscled into activism.

Virginia's delegation to the

Virginia's delegation to the RNC was 'delayed' from reaching the convention floor to oppose the proposed rules changes until after the vote had taken place. Further, at least one delegate was told he didn't have the proper credentials to be allowed in the building to vote.

Statement: "We are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the delay of the Virginia delegation's arrival to the Republican National Convention. While it is possible the delay is attributable to human error, the timing of the delay has led many to suspect ulterior motives. our request, which I believe is being met, is that the Rules Committee be reconvened to allow a full and fair discussion of the contested issues. If an open vote is allowed on the contested issues, I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. The Romney campaign has been informed of the intensity of our feeling on this matter, and I trust they will act accordingly." - Gary Byler, 2nd Congressional District GOP Chairman

More information forthcoming.
