Thank you to my heroes from Maine!

This may be a good time for a good old fashion clam bake... or at least lobster roll in Freeport.

Time to re-group... ya think?

Thank you for your sacrifice

Thank you for your sacrifice and efforts Maine delegates. It was an honor to fight with you at the state convention and I will never forget the feeling of exhultation when we won our state convention. May it be the first of many victories. And as you had to often tell the Mittwitts at our state convention Brent, I think it is time the RNC heard 'you are out of order.'


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.


Remember Maine!

And unseat the scumbags. You know what they hate? Losing power.

False Smiles

I watched the faces of those glib chairman as the States announced their support one by one for Mitt Romney. And it occured to me that the smiles on their faces were as fixed as the Convention itself. And if their smiles were so false then it was as plain as day they must have known they were throwing the Presidency back into the lap of Obama, the worst president in history. What is wrong with these people? That they are more scared of a Ron Paul presidency than they are of another term of Obama??

Screw the RNC, screw the GOP,

Screw the RNC, screw the GOP, screw Mitt and his merry band of idiots!

Expose RINOs for what they are! They're not real Republicans!

If any of our duly elected Delegates and Alternates have badges that will allow them access into the convention hall or even just beyond the doors outside, they should return every day with signs loudly proclaiming "Disenfranchised Maine Delegates!". Make up other kick ass signs to place all around themselves or carry, and sit in a group close to high traffic areas for all to see and to be interviewed by any and all media that wish to carry their story. This is tyranny in action but on a mild scale that needs to serve as "egg in the face" of the RNC and their goons who have strong-armed themselves onto the floor to cast illegitimate votes for a candidate that the party participants in Maine wished to support.
This is not the democratic process in action, it is hooliganism in action. It is not the action of Republicans but the action of RINOs that have taken over the party for decades. It is time to clean house of the Sununu's and RINO's in the party and that includes Gingrich, Santorum, Pawlenty, Huntsman, Cain, Giuliani, Huckabee and all others that refuse to side with the Constitution of our republic. It is quite clear for all to see now just who is on the side of fairness, principles, following the rules.
Those who did not stand with these Maine delegates also need to go. It is these people who have for decades blocked any reasonable changes to the party platform that would put it in greater compliance with our US Constitution.
MAKE A LOT OF NOTES, take a lot of pictures and videos, try to video any interviews with major media reporters and upload to Youtube so that their edits can be exposed.
Please try to go back as a group every day, with a clean game plan to garner coverage and to protest. Document your activities! Remain peaceful but tell your story. Video any hecklers and their nasty outbursts and get their names and where they are from to alert real Republicans back in their states. Do your own interviews of each other even, and edit them into one Youtube video for use against these RINOs.
We need to put together a documentary video of this whole process from start to finish for future use!

So there was this pastor and a priest in a bar

along with some other guys, one who was a Native American Indian, and also a few women, at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. They were duly elected delegates chosen to represent the state of Maine--- I'm sorry. Did I say "bar?" I meant "convention center." And oh, yeah. I forgot to mention, seven of them had served their country in the military. Veterans. So anyway, this guy from the National Republican Party Rules Committee points to them and says in a gruff voice, "You're Ron Paul supporters. We don't serve your kind here." So one of the delegates says, "States can choose whomever they want to represent them. We were chosen by the book, fair and square, by over twenty-five hundred fellow Republicans who participated in the caucuses. We have a right to be here." So the RNC guy says, "Who cares. Now get lost."

It is a crying shame...what a sham. No shirt...no shoes...Ron Paul supporter = No service.

Didn't Clint Eastwood say this joke in Grand Torino?

It was shorter though....So these Maine delegates walk into the the republican convention. The RNC guy looks up and says "Get the f!$k out."

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

Thank you Maine delegates, for standing, and then standing

You deserve our greatest respect and admiration.


Thank you for the coverage

They that sow the wind, will reap the whirlwind.

Enjoy your irrelevance, GOP.

Working within the GOP makes sense if they do not cheat and change the rules on a whim. But the corruption is all too evident. When I look back at the countless hours I and many others have spent campaigning for Paul, when I look back at the handful of genuine successes that the movement had achieved - only to be invalidated by the GOP higher ups, I can't help but think that our energies would be better spent elsewhere.

Covert Action!

We need to stay in the Party and destroy it from within. Take it over and exploit it like no tomorrow.
Time to infiltrate destroy and build new.

Think Truth...Trust Truth...Rely on Truth!



Did we really think the GOP would play fair???

I mean after all we've seen this past year from them???

The GOP is a band of thugs and Ron Paul wanted to change it from the inside out....

Sorry but you're now seeing the FRAUD up close and personal..

Do we understand now? Are we getting the hint?

Great, thank you!

Thank you.



These rude Romney people are like this cause it is in their character. These are the type of people who think it is manly to bomb other countries and kill little kids as a result. Remember their bumper stickers: "kick their ass and take their gas". Well, they kicked our ass and took our election, at least in their eyes. Such scum

ironic too because i believe

ironic too because i believe the iraq war was about keeping prices up and supply lower

There's only one word for Romney---PIG!!!

And, that describes the RNC, too. But, the buck stops at Romney's doorstep! He could have stopped a lot of this unfairness, but instead, his "mormon" principles guided him to do the 'right' thing.

Boy, if this is an example of HIS MORALS, we don't need him!

Watch the Dems destroy this man! I can hardly wait!!

Can you imagine

A man... well not a man, a weasel, that f()*cks over so many people in tampa... what he is going to do to the country..... shiffers down our spines.

"And remember, a half-truth is far more dangerous then a complete lie, because the complete lie is going to be discovered sooner or later - just a little intelligence is needed. But the half-truth is very dangerous, even intelligent people, very intellige

I'm sorry but after watching

I'm sorry but after watching both videos I'm still not sure why the delegates were unseated, kicked out whatever. Can someone shed some light? Also this should galvanize everyone that we can not give up!

I'll do my best but when I'm

I'll do my best but when I'm done you will still be scratching your head...
the ME delegates won fair and square and overwhelmingly. I beleive at first the Romney campaign didn't want RP to be on the ballot so they picked ME, LA, OR, MA and started to strip delegates. Basically they had to come up with a reason so they just said it was an invalid convention and made up a bunch of reasons why that is so.
ME stuck together and refused to compromise. Some or all of the other states that RP had the plurality in compromised to seat some delegates but lost plurality. ME did not do this. in fact the Governor of ME fought for them too (he was NOT a Ron Paul supporter) but he saw right from wrong and fought. In the end the ME governor boycotted the Tampa convention because of this.
The ME delegates went (I believe as guests from the IA delegates!) and they continued to fight. But even though they were right, the Romney campaign refused to seat them. they did not want RP to have 5 states.
Turns out though that there were 6 states that nominated RP from the floor. Meaning at this time RP should have been on the ballot. But then the Romney campaign changed the rules just today or yesterday, saying sorry you need 8 states now, cause I said so...

Romney's people are so rude and nasty

Romney's people couldn't even handle having another person on the ballot--ridiculous! Yet we are supposed to think he can handle running the country? Won't that be a threat to his manhood if he has to deal with people who don't rubber stamp him?

this too

That's a good summary, and here's a nice one too: http://www.nolanchart.com/article9813-robbing-ron-paul.html
