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.

You know...

This is the perfect time for Rand to "take back" his endorsement of Romney publicly. It would be the wise thing to do, if you ask me.

MSM is not controlled by both parties

MSM (including the net) is controlled by the elite corporations that control both parties.

Is this what RP meant when he

Is this what RP meant when he said in his speech, "we have the numbers"? Yep, he said that.

we did

then they changed the rules, stripped delegates, kept them physically away, and ignored them when they could get away with it.

So now what? Complain online

So now what? Complain online to deaf ears? Write petitions that get ignored? Or should we go down to Tampa and flip busses? Succeed from the Union? What is it we are supposed to do... because I sure as hell don't want to sit back and except this outcome and how it came about.

now the rloveution just gets started

... buckle your seatbelts, truthers and patriots for liberty...

114 days to go . . . . .

Take over Media

Take over the media should be priority #1. Money bomb to start buying up broadcast TV stations.

From Australia:

Do not give up on Ron Paul just yet!

WE can do BETTER! Go Ron Paul!

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

We're with Paul

Cause when the US sneezes...

Ask not what your Paul can do for you, but what you can do for your country - Anon.

Aussies for Ron Paul!

... and many other people from other countries, I'm sure. The principals of liberty are universal!

Keep on running the good race,

politics is dead. tax revolt and non-compliance is the solution.

f___ all forms of govt.

tax revolt may not work very

tax revolt may not work very well.... but a real revolt might send a message.

Seccession is the only possilbe chance.

Secession is the only possible chance. Cut the Cancerous States and DC away. www.uniondissolved.com has is correct.


@ Carverchick, Then what do you suggest we do? Give up? I will not! Vote Romney? I will not! Vote for Obama? I will not! Write in Ron Paul? I had planned on that, but, with the corruption I have seen in the primary, I believe they would find a way to give those votes to Romney, so, I will not!

I believe that Gary Johnson is the only way to send a clear message to the GOP that we are mad as hell, and we are not going to take it anymore! The Freedom Works Tea Party is also up in arms over the power grab, and we should jump on this to get more support. Sign up, if you have not already, and start talking with these people. They are a grassroots also and the power grab influences them also. We can get Gary Johnson into the debates and that is what we need. Another person to talk about liberty and the unconstitutional wars, Romney and Obama surely will not. Come on people, we need to get together here with a plan that makes sense. Ron Paul trusted the Libertarian Party in '98, let us trust them one time.

@westcoastpatriot - NO!

@westcoastpatriot - NO! Never, ever, ever give up! If you belive that voting GJ will help the movement, then by all means, vote for him. I personally cannot, and will not vote for him because I for whatever reason dont belive him when he speaks....that is my gut feeling and I go with that. I honestly listened to him and tried to belive in him --- I just can't, but that is me. I have found my calling...and that calling is liberty and I intend to have that that calling heard through every county in the state of Massachusetts and beyond. IMO - a clear message to the RNC is a write in vote for Ron Paul to show that we are MAD AS HELL!!!!!! As far as the tea party goes...get mad as hell too! The Ron Paul movement started the tea party and we need to take it back! If Ron Paul endorses RJ, I might consider voting for him - but he hasn't - and I don't need Ron Paul to tell me why.


I understand your hesitation, but how will you feel if Romney gets all those write ins? I really believe that will happen with everything they have done and are still doing. They have already started to attempt to strip Gary Johnson from being on the ballot in several key states, why? http://bungalowbillscw.blogspot.com/2012/08/why-is-gop-scare... Because he is a threat just like Dr. Paul. He will need support from somewhere, but where? The damage has been done to Dr. Paul, Johnson is next in their sites. If Dr. Paul were to run third party, I would jump on, but he has said he will not. I believe Gary Johnson is sincere, is he Ron Paul? No. But his has a lot of similarities. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=227YyBf7-KQ&feature=autoplay&...


I meant '88 and then could not edit. And I wanted to add that Gary Johnson endorsed Ron Paul in 2008 as governor when others would not, and he said Ron Paul would have been his first choice as a running mate http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrU6hTWyj6s


I know what you meant...and please keep on being the west coast patriot - coming from someone who lived on the west coast for three years, you are an endangered species :)

If Ron Paul ran independent,

If Ron Paul ran independent, I would be happy as HEll!!! At least then he could debate with Romney and Obama and show what real pussies they are. Ron Paul would destroy in a debate!! Ron Paul must run independent! If he got a speaking spot, people would be forced to see past the corrupt agendas forced down there throats.

We have not reached our

We have not reached our snapping point yet, but I'm curious to find out when we revolt.

How are we suppose to send a message with a fist down our throat? Answer = stop trying to talk, and start trying to kick.

Nevermind bdog

No offence Bdog. Everyone should say what ever it is they feel needs to be said. Let them see the justified anger come from every direction. Let them know it is not about open chaos but strategic surgical precision of our focus. They only want us to get violent IF we actually lose. If we win then the criminals will be in prison, at minimum, and we will regain our porsperity and happiness. That is their worst nightmare. Be strong, clear and aware. know them better than they know themselves. Don't be afraid to speak what you feel needs to be spoken. For our organic laws contain the lawful pathway to revolution. Out of a decent respect we must inform them of our causes. Once informed they can either leave us alone or face the consequences. They will decide their fate if we properly inform them.

So to put this into practice right now: I am informing the criminals that we are gaining the necessary intel on you. We are aware of your tactics, motive, means, and locations. We are aware that you feel superior in your vantage point of law breaking surveillance. We are gaining our means of your details as well. We are identify you the criminals and your criminal activities in order to bring you to justice. We are gaining strength daily and you know we are. We are good and decent people but our patience in this extortion, theft, torture, murder, and psyops is coming to the end. We desire peace and know and understand that your criminal activity is obstructing our pursuit of happiness.

Our knowledge, clarity and free will, will far surpass your abilities to make us comply with your orders. We have calculated your weaknesses and have clarity that we now know you so well that we can put you where we want you with our verbal perturbations. This advantage will empower us to use your own goons against you. We know how your mental and computer algorithms work and we will also be able to use this against you too in ways that I will not disclose at this time. In fact you are following quite neatly into the pattern we predicted you would and soon you will be the ones who removes all of your power as your predictable behavior enables our strategic path to guarantee our success. We are much bigger than you think and soon enough this will become perfectly clear to you.

Speak Free Be Free!

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...


Be patient my friend, and choose your words carefully, remember Brandon Raub.

Not trying to disagree but

We have a right to say what we want. We even have an OBLIGATION to overthrow government when it becomes like this. This is specified in the constitution. THEY want to silence us. Choosing our words carefully is the censorship they want. So why do you think we should choose our words carefully? In fear of us being unlawfully arrested and detained? I think the right idea is to fight these bastards, not comply with their unconstitutional rules and laws. What are your thoughts?

My point was

that even if someone from a 3rd party was to get 36+%, I am not confident that the winner would not somehow be squeezed out by the two party system. There would be dome serious fraud going on (just like now).

Sure, The electoral college

But with 36%, all others will try to copy our ideas. All major media hosts will parrot us and that will be the turning point for awakening.

Kerry Healy of Massachusetts was not voted a delegate one of 17

Ron Paul deletes stolen. There is absolutely no difference in Obama and Romney policies.

I think the time to end this nonsense is gone ..... Ron money bomb needed for liberty less government liberty party.


Im sorry...but Gary Johnson is, IMO, the Barak Obama of the republican party - in the sense that he says what he knows you want and need to hear - but I am somehow missing the sincerity in the inflection of what he says. Don't get me wrong....he says all the right things, I just doubt he would walk the talk if president, if you know what I mean. Sorry - but Gary Johnson will not get my vote...I am writing in Ron Paul. He is my President..period.

You do not understand

LP wont win this year. We just need to start the process of pushing GOP-DEM monopoly aside. LP needs 15% this years. By 2016 we will get another leader for LP and it may get 36% (win.)

We cannot just sit and dream for second RP clone (there is no one.) We need to start maximizing liberty based on actual conditions on the ground, not day-dreaming.

With three parties, we will need less actual votes to win. Instead of 51%, just 34%. And we need to boost LP to finally produce LP Congressmen and Senators for Washington DC.
