Six States Nominate Congressman Ron Paul for President at the Republican National Convention

TAMPA, August 28, 2012-- Supporters of Congressman Ron Paul have collected the necessary signatures to nominate him for President of the United States at the RNC. The current rules state that a plurality of delegates from five states are required to nominate a candidate for President. The Secretary of the Convention, Kim Reynolds, was presented with the forms over an hour before the call for nominations.

“We are excited to get Dr. Paul nominated,” said Wayne Terhune, Nevada Delegation Chairman. “Congressman Paul’s message of limited, Constitutional government, sound foreign policy, and personal liberty needs to be heard on this convention floor.”

The list of nominating states and territories are: Nevada, Minnesota, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska, and the Virgin Islands.

Can we get a list of all the delegates who supported Romney?

and make sure they have no future in politics in this country.

I want this list, if already

I want this list, if already available somewhere. It would save me time.

Or I'll figure it out by myself.

P.S.
I dislike lists of people usually. The Nazis loved lists. But I want this list in order to give some memory refreshers when it's about time.

One who doesn't want to use one's memory is irresponsible in human affairs.

I'd be willing to bet that these delegates spoke of the constitution, freedom, and defeating obama. Supporter Romney fails these on all 3 accounts. Either they have bad judgement or they betrayed their representatives. Either way, its not someone I want involved with running my country, state, or county.

Done

he now has my vote.

It's time to unite behind Gary Johnson!

Since the GOP delegates chose to vote AGAINST the Constitution by nominating Willard "Flip-Flop" Romney, it's now time we unite behind Gary Johnson. Yes, he's not as pure as Ron Paul but who is? Gary Johnson will be on the ballot in all 50 states!

Eight states do not allow write-in votes and in other states a candidate must register as a write-in candidate for the votes to count. Gary Johnson 2012...the rEVOLution continues!

we have to continue to show

the 2 major parties that the numbers for third party candidates continue to grow .... it is the only thing we can do to protest - and be voting for someone you agree with on the majority of issues.

Go GJ

Vote Third Party.

LIAR!!!!!

Why would you post "Ron Paul Nominated At RNC"? He was not. That was really irresponsible. I am so upset by the let down. newtham can we get an apology?

He was "nominated" by six states.

He did not, however, win the "nomination".

They held up delegates on buses and voted alternates

In case you wanted to know how they did it. Not being satisfied with completely stealing Maine with the governor of the State himself objecting and refusing to allow it, Louisiana, and Oklahoma,

They held up delegates, and voted alternatives that supported Romney at the last minute.

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.

So, how?

So, how can it be that Nevada announced that six states nominated Paul, but he only had an actual plurality in three?!? Very interested in this.

It was sufficient that they

It was sufficient that they did it and put it in a floor speech.

Every last delegate knows that Ron Paul had enough states to be one of the nominees, and that Romney committed election fraud to take them away, including causing the governor of Maine to refuse to come to the convention.

Every last delegate. They are all responsible. Men are asked to die to defend America, but they can not do the right thing when it costs them nothing but to commit to their word and their oaths and truth?

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.

Here's to the Daily Show - hopefully, they'll take it from here and give it some attention...

God bless Nevada, Minnesota and Iowa especially.

All 3 gave Dr. Paul the majority of their delegates.

But I salute every other Ron Paul delegate as well.

You are all great patriots but the fight is over now.

Back to apathy for me.

The only way to teach the GOP cheating scum

is to consolidate the Liberty vote and vote for Gary Johnson. This is the only way the GOP will ever give libertarian ideals more than lip service, when it cost them elections to ignore us. As long as we "work with them" and try to "change them from the inside" they will never allow us to change anything, just more empty promises.

If I decide to waste my time in November...

I will be voting for Gary Johnson.

However, I highly doubt I will waste my time after attending the Maine Convention for 2 days and just having the RNC decide Maine isn't qualified to vote for ourselves.

I truly don't see myself ever voting again. I think the RNC has converted me to Anarchy.

Please vote

Step back take a breath and know that this is not the end for us. Not until November 7th. Keep fighting and go out and vote. Help me organize the October 27 National Third Party Unification Day. I want to see everyone not voting for Obama or Romney rally in public in their cities and towns and make the Earth shake with cheers!

I say we create

our own party - the Anarchy Party? The Mad-As-Hell Party? - and vote for Vermin Supreme. This guy has more charisma than Romney & Ryan put together anyhow...

You're already in the northeast

Move to New Hampshire. You can work on local elections and nullification, or just build a community with anarchists that are already there. Head on over to www.dailyanarchist.com and sign up--the guy that runs it is already in NH.

Alternatively, go to www.dollarvigilante.com and look into expatriation. That's the route I'm gonna take.

please..... you must vote..

please..... you must vote.. whyen you vote for other then the demo or repub dummy you are sending a message to the ruling elite that they do not own you and you can think for your self. PLEASE ... I beg you to vote. Either Jophnson, the Constitution party or write in Paul. But please .. VOTE.. eithe voting for one of their annointed stooges or not voting is exactly what they want. Not voting hurts also.

I agree.... Not sure it does

I agree.... Not sure it does any good to punch a button on a rigged electronic machine.... BUT if you have local liberty candidates on the ballot it may still be worth a shot.... Top down isn't working... we need to try bottom up...

Wow

Not even gonna roll call the Veep under the new rules. HOW CONVENIENT!

All those old people

look miserable there. They can't even pretend to be excited for Romney.

I'll be writing down the names

I'll be writing down the names of all those famous talking heads who in the GOP endorsed this happening. Later tonight when I can focus and research in quiet. I have good memory but, just in case, for I won't allow it to fail me later on.

WE CONTINUE THE FIGHT. WITH RON PAUL.

For LIBERTY.

Oh my goodness!

This stuff sounds like something out of Pol Pot's Cambodia! What happened at the convention seems surreal to me. The masses have been brainwashed and there will be no return to freedom without a revolution I'm afraid.
