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.

It is because of Israel and

It is because of Israel and Netanyahu are the reason why Ron Paul is getting the snub. Plus the fact that I have a theory that Romney paid the Republican party's million dollar debt and made Reince Priebus look good.

NOBODY could make Reince

NOBODY could make Reince Priebus look good...

Still Time to find 2 more states.

Don't give up. Did you get North Carolina ? Get any state to put in a petition. You only need one delegate per state to put in a nomination off Ron Paul. Try Hawaii, the Virgin Islands-does not hurt to ask. Guam, Colorado, North Dakota, New Hampshire, any state where there is Ron Paul delgates. Roll Call has not occurred yet, I understand.

What's to stop them...

...from bumping up the number again? They have rules and stick to them but ONLY if the establishment candidate is selected. If not, then the rules change on a whim and it's a private club, etc.

I couldn't agree more. We are never going to get anything through politics/elections! The establishment will never freely give up control back to the People! We need to use Article 61.

The worst dirty trick


Dr. Wayne Terhune who led this effort nationwide....

....is truly the next Ron Paul, if you could ever convince him to run.

A family dentist, from rural Nevada....

... the profile is nearly the same except for 30 years in age and elected public life.


The only way they had to stop

The only way they had to stop us was changing the rules in the middle of the convention.

Delegates, Please stay the course.

Don't allow them to claim party unity.

Maybe the other delegates will experience voter's regret.

Maybe we can challenge authority one more time. Stay until closing.

I know it is hard, but Dr. Paul has worked so hard to get us here. Just a few more hours.

Free includes debt-free!

Just a few more DAYS.

It's not over until it's adjourned "SINE DIE".

Not "adjourned". But adjourned SINE DIE.


We have arrived!
