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.

How is this possible that

How is this possible that they can just change the rules at the last moment. It's being in a 3 mile race with someone and once you hit the 2 mile you say forget it, the finish line is now 2 miles.
How is this legal?

it's just like Maine

Stop the vote counting with 85% in

My thoughts exactly...

You have a candidate who's been campaigning for almost a year, spent millions of dollars competing in an official contest under official legal guidelines, and at the last minute, with the sole intention of suppressing a legitimately qualified candidate, the rules are changed disqualifying that candidate.

Disgusting.

yessir

And the crowd cheers. Forgive them for they know not what they do.

No matter where you go...there you are.

The worst part?

Don't expect the criminals who did it to be punished.

Video of the rule change

Video of the rule change anyone? Needs to spread! The No's had it. Clearly! Ohhhh Rachel Maddow is going to have a feild day!

The rnc/gop est and romney

The rnc/gop est and romney campaign basically lied,cheated and stole the nomination. the original rules were 5 states to be nominated. We had 6, so the corrupt rnc,gop est and romney campaign changed the rules to 8 and we won nay votes that they ignored. The gop is dead now, spread this to everyone you know video below and info all over the internet on the gop corruption. Crooks they are.

Unrelated Question

Did Ron Paul take his website down? I haven't been able to reach it since the convention nominated Romney. Says I am not authorized to visit the site.

let me get this right

They changed the # of states requirements for 2012 NOT 2016 and they did this AFTER Paul submitted his nominations?

dispicable.

Such CHILDISH GAMES---the GOP displays

What are they afraid of? RP wasn't going to win the nomination.

They knew that, yet they fought tooth & nail to keep as many delegates as possible from attending the Convention.

They demeaned Congressman Ron Paul, a man who was retiring with over 30 years of dedicated service, with not one spoken word allowed by him, and instead, chose bits & pieces of his speeches which reflected their own agenda. SHAMEFUL, SHAMEFUL, SHAMEFUL!

These Neocons will rue the day that they obstructed justice. The Media representatives will rue the day they obstructed justice. And, I hope & pray the HONORABLE DR. RON PAUL will live to see his life's work validated someday...
