GOP glad to rid themselves of Ron Paul supporters, the move to Libertarian PartySubmitted by legalizeliberty on Wed, 08/29/2012 - 13:08
Yesterday the Republican Party elected Mitt Romney as their presidential nominee at their national convention happening this week in Tampa, Florida to face Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson and expected Democratic Party presidential nominee Barack Obama in the November 6, 2012 general election. Voting delegates at the convention voted for Romney by a landslide and Ron Paul received a significant number of votes and to a much lesser extent, other Republicans who had dropped or suspended their campaigns.
Before yesterday's nomination process began, Republican Party chairman, Reince Priebus was calling Mitt Romney the nominee facing Barack Obama ignoring the fact he had not yet been elected to be the Republican Party's nominee. Other Republican Party officials did the same before a vote had been cast. Rather than be impartial, as most feel they should be, these Republican Party officials clearly had, and publicly voiced, bias against other nominees in favor of Mitt Romney.
