Note: For Pennsylvania - he actually said Paul Ryan, but he must have meant Ron Paul, no?

Note: I had to assume 3 abstain votes from Oklahoma because they only announced 40 of their 43, 2 abstain votes for Michigan because they only announced 28 of their 30, 2 abstain votes for Nebraska because they only announced 33 of their 35 and 1 additional abstain vote from Nevada because they only announced 27 of their 28

Nobody abstained from MA...sad.

This does not reflect the

This does not reflect the number of Ron Paul supporters. There were a lot of us. Virginia had 24 paul delegates, Arkansas had 5, Texas had about 75, Mass had ~20. Oregon, Alaska, Virgin Islands all had a majority, and possibly Washington too.

And then there's Maine...

video tribute ?

was there a video tribute to Paul ?

"Snip"

You just like that, because of Hurricane Isaac's delay, that part must be snipped from the convention. When they treat us like shit, they can't expect our support. Considering we had the largest and longest organized grassroots, they've lost a LOT of potential activists.

It's tonight

Tonight they are opening with a video tribute to Ron Paul, followed by speeches from the 2 Senators from Kentucky.

190 Delegate Votes Represents millions of General Election Votes

that won't go to Romney.

Now, we need to decide what to do with the votes we won't give Romney.

Too much blood has been shed for our right to vote to not vote at all.

DP needs to post a poll on what to do with our votes.

Write-in Ron Paul
Gary Johnson
Obama
Other

What?

Get Johnson in the debate...

Dr Paul's principle argument is that a healthy republic needs a chance to discuss ideas. What better way to continue the message of Liberty (and the Paul Legacy) by broadening the discussion toward liberty.

Be as vocal as possible for Johnson, he needs to poll well in order to be in the debates. I don't care who you ultimately vote for (many will write in Paul), but we need more discussion of ideas. It is a huge long shot that Johnson or a Paul write in would win, so vote third party... who ever you want it to be.

Tell friends and family that the USA needs Johnson in the debate, so when the polls call your house, poll Johnson. Twitter Johson. Facebook Johnson. Online Poll Johnson.

I like the idea to split the

I like the idea to split the GOP vote with Johnson. If Romney wins these "non-awake" GOPers that are pissed off at Obama will go back to sleep for 8 years.

Unless Dr Paul says otherwise

I will be writing in his name.

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

The Rep. state chair from

The Rep. state chair from Neb. just failed to announce the 2 RP delegates.

Hmm

Very lame if Nebraska just left out the votes during roll call because they were for Ron Paul. Because they did not state those votes, I'm pretty sure they are just counted as "abstain" but we'll see - hopefully it can be corrected, because if they were actually supposed to be for Dr. Paul, that would be (yet another) terrible injustice to the people of Nebraska.

Either way, that's what

Either way, that's what happened to those two missing votes from Neb.

Thanks IngotNews. Small correction - Buddy Roemer has no "h" in

his last name.

Thanks.

Done

Thanks.

On one hand, a good show...

Romney received the nomination with the smallest majority in several decades of GOP history. Romney received 90.1% of the votes despite authoritarian efforts to strip us of delegations and to change the rules to prevent formally nominating Dr. Paul. We had 6 states--but the rules changed last minute to require pluralities in 8 delegations.

Frankly, it's surprising just how many delegates we had from so many different delegations! Despite bindings and affidavits and lost credentials and everything!

Alaska - 9 of 50
Arizona - 3 of 29
Georgia - 3 of 76
Hawaii - 3 of 20
Iowa - 22 of 28 << Majority
Louisiana - 12 of 46
Maine - 10 of 24
Michigan - 4 of 30
Minnesota - 33 of 40 << Majority
Missouri - 4 of 24
Nevada - 17 of 28 << Majority
New Hampshire - 3 of 12
North Carolina - 7 of 55
North Dakota - 5 of 28
Oklahoma - 6 of 43
Oregon - 4 of 28
Pennsylvania - 5 of 72
Rhode Island - 4 of 19
South Carolina - 1 of 25
Texas - 20 of 155
Vermont - 4 of 17
Virginia - 3 of 49
Virgin Islands - 1 of 9
Washington - 5 of 43
Wisconsin - 1 of 42
Wyoming - 1 of 29

Now on the bad side of things, there was clearly muted microphones all over the hall. CSPAN tried to play it off as a pro-Romney chant (but moving lips easily showed it to have several syllables more than that chant). Likewise, no calls for hard counts on votes were respected so, an argument can be made, that the convention itself was invalid and that the chair, the "Honorable" (and I really must use that in quotations) John Boehner, should have been removed. It would have made my day (and the days of everyone else) if calls for Division, at the very least, would have been respected.

We fought hard for those 5 from Washington

Well we let them know we are here and I can't speak for everyone, but I'm not changing my politics.

Meh

Ehhhh
It's over and done

Gary Johsnon anybody?

"Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear." - Benjamin Franklin

Gary Johnson anybody?

How about Gary Johnson EVERYBODY? A Republican vote is to condone
the fraudulent "convention". Ron Paul ran as a Libertarian in the past and was shut out then also, by the Republicans. We are witnessing pure evil and I'm not supporting it.

The ayes have it. Gary

The ayes have it. Gary Johnson will be the next president.

I am disappointed in my home

I am disappointed in my home state of Ohio.

Ditto mine, Massachusetts...

A shame.

No, they did right.

Mass. Delegates promised the Mass GOP that they would vote for Romney, like the party rules in Mass required.

I can't fault them for placing the votes they did, they gave their word that they would.

With so much blatant cheating by the party itself, it was good to see people at the state level keeping their promises, because they can always point that out at a later time. Loudly. In contrast.

Yeah - well said, I guess I'm more disappointed that...

Yeah, I guess I'm more disappointed that they actually voted for Romney in the first place, especially after seeing Romney at work, first hand.

I'm utterly shocked with the

I'm utterly shocked with the outcome for VA. Gov McDonnell announced the votes according to the Primary numbers. I personally know several people in the delegation. Of the 49 total delegates form VA, 26 are Ron Paul supporters. We had a majority. I'm pissed no one did anything about that. I wonder if there are any other states where the person announcing the vote rammed numbers through for Romney, ignoring the true feelings of certain people within the delegations. Ron Paul's numbers may have been much higher than this.

Perhaps they were "replaced" because they didn't vote for Mitt?

Also note, the rule change "compromise" passed. Which meant that if you were "bound" to Romney and you didn't vote for him, the secretary was going to record a vote for Romney anyway and you would lose your credentials.

Perhaps the State Delegation Chairs simply entered the bound votes as an efficiency measure, or perhaps to shield their delegates from losing credentials.

MN.

I'm very proud of my fellow Minnesota delegates WAY TO GO they stayed strong THANK YOU ALL and see ya when you get back

definately

Very happy that Minnesota got so many delegates in there.

Impressive

.

A good way to look at it

John McCain won the nomination in 2008 with 2,343 votes and Ron Paul with 21. Mitt Romney only won with 2061 and Ron Paul with 190. I'd say that's huge progress, and just think how many more we would of had if the RNC didn't cheat us out of our true delegate wins by following the rules. I'm sorry, I'm just always so optimistic about everything :)

Yes thanks for posting. Not

Yes thanks for posting. Not a single delegate from California voted for Paul-gotta admit a little disappointing.
