Las Vegas Sun + NY Times Confirm: Ron Paul Got SIX State Petitions for Nomination

We managed, in spite of a corrupt media, corrupt national GOP, corrupt state GOP organizations, voter ignorance, voter apathy, a massive disinfo campaign, an ongoing psy-ops campaign, and physical violence, to get Ron Paul the GOP nomination, based on the rules of four days ago.

The GOP and Democrat-controlled media had to lie, cheat, steal, and break bones to stop us.

Las Vegas Sun:

Paul supporters, lead by Nevada delegate Wayne Terhune, succeeded in putting together petitions from six states to put Paul’s name up for nomination. But earlier this week, the Romney campaign won a critical rules change requiring eight states to put a candidate up for nomination.

At the last moment, Paul supporters handed the petitions to the convention secretary. Then, the convention voted to adopt the eight-state rule, crushing the Paul effort.

New York Times:

Delegates from Nevada tried to nominate Mr. Paul from the floor, submitting petitions from their own state as well as Minnesota, Maine, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. That should have done the trick: Rules require signatures from just five states. But the party changed the rules on the spot. Henceforth, delegates must gather petitions from eight states.

Six States Stolen

My son recently had some business dealings with a prominent Republican majority leader from a nameless state. Eventually the conversation wound around to politics. My son said I'm really disappointed that Ron Paul did not stay into it to the end. The unnamed person said Me too!

The conversation wound around as to "why". The comment was "I think somebody had a talk with him!" Now you can all read what ever you want into that statement but when it's coupled with Rand's announcement that he supports Romney (at the same time his dad gave up process)there is little or no doubt with me.

God bless Ron and yes, his son.

The Judge

Isn't this where

the US would normally criticize Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba etc for rigging elections?
- Guess the Obama administration will have to impose sanctions against the opponent now lol

What a joke this nation has become.

You all know what to do. John

"One day, WE shall have liberty" ~ John Adams

WE hold these truths to be self-evident,

that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness-That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. -The Declaration of Independence-July 4th, 1776

Amen to that!

Amen to that!

Minnesotans Vote for Paul - Mpls. Star Tribune

State's delegation cast 33 votes for Rep. Paul, the largest bloc of any state.

Minnesota delegates Melissa Valeriano and Marianne Stebbins, pledged to Ron Paul, yell "point of order" and "division" after the Republican National Committee voted to change the rules of the convention and take away their rights of the state delegation at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Florida, Tuesday, August 28, 2012.

There is no duration defined in the Oath

It was bad enough

When Liberty was being gagged and stifled. Now it is being suffocated by the very people who boasted so fervently to support it.

Its due to a base desire for power at all costs--Even if it subverts the will of the people and and the checks and balances put in place to prevent tyranny.

Republican Delusion

Yes, it's like many people just want to be on the winning team, regardless of whether that team is lying, cheating, and stealing to win. It was disturbing to see some of my associates on Facebook and Twitter yesterday cheering on Romney. These are people who care about unborn children. They actually want to ignore all the facts and pretend that Romney is just like them. Romney is as pro-life as George W. Bush. Because he now claims to be pro-life, they can ignore his actions. They would actually think "Romney is as pro-life as George W. Bush" is a strong endorsement.

Just heard on radio: three state delegates voted for Paul

one for gingrinch.

Technically, that is true. But very misleading as people will think that only three state delegates voted for Paul.

All of this was to make them cheat, to expose them.

We knew that there are no rules in politics, but we pretended the GOP had rules...when we knew they didn't.

Frankly, the whole point of Paul's campaigns was to make them cheat, to expose the corruption.

That's why we've been focusing so hard on their cheating all this time. And we should keep it up. The more we expose the reality of how the people do not have true representation, the closer we move to an appropriate response.

They won the peace in this country long ago...we are trying to bring back unrest, higher standands, etc...a willinging to admit the truth about the country is run, how the people are manipulated, etc. Get that front and center and the people will provide an appropriate response...as they have numerous times before throughout time.

That is a GREAT perspective!

I will adopt, promote & share it. Thank You!

oops erasing a double

oops erasing a double (although not very well)

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

next time lets double it

next time lets double it

They'll just double the required states

Frankly, they can just rule that to overcome the party leadership's pick, all the states must unanimously vote for someone else. Heck, they could rule that there is no way to overcome the leadership's pick.

There are no rules in politics. The sooner we get that in our head, the sooner we can get traction.

Incomprehensible - almost....

These hacks sure are good at never letting us down in our expectations of them doing their infamous and most reprehensible actions!

My experience tells me, As the WORLD is Watching....When you kick a hive once it's down, all you do is piss off it's occupants!

(Now, Off to spread the word of this to the unknowing rest of the world!)

As we go through these very sad times, this video reminds me why I support Ron Paul, and why we FIGHT for liberty, and why we need to fight on to take back our country. Event though this video has been seen by most of you, it is important that we stop, take a deep breath, and take less than 7 minutes of our time to sit and watch this video. PLEASE, take less than 7 minutes of your day to watch this, it can't hurt.


Great video! I needed it today

after the convention events on the 28th.

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


Thank you for the video, I needed that. (It brought tears to my eyes).


Yes great Vid


“The final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.”


So he WAS eligible for the nomination PER RNC RULES.

That's their OWN RULES!

And for them to do this trick at the last minute is not excusable.

Perhaps there is a LEGAL matter here.

And remember - the RNC gets 50 million taxpayer dollars.

Most of us knew this was a

Most of us knew this was a long shot in the first place, but we at least wanted to see our candidate treated with some respect. He has been a defender of liberty for all his life, and is a veteran. The proper thing to do would have been to announce all the votes each state cast, not just those for Romney, and give Dr. Paul his 15-minute speech, because the original rules were met before the Mittens' fascists changed them.

I've detested the Republican party for years but now detest it even more. They are nothing but tyrannical fascists. I'm going the independent vote this November, and I hope folks join me. I know some have the urge to write in Dr. Paul - I'd like to myself - but we need to show more Americans are moving away from the Republicrat tyranny and seeking other voices.

Oklahoma and Louisiana Makes Eight

I wish I lived in either state so that I could file a lawsuit against the GOP and RNC.

Remember the Maine!

Hell, if it weren't for the Mittwits... 10+.

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

Forget Rand

Here's the guy to support going forward...


God bless the Nevada delegates and Ron Paul supporters.

I loved how their spokesman handled the convention and told the TRUTH about how many states Dr. Paul had.
