By Snubbing Ron Paul, the RNC May Have Cost Romney the Election

If you've been watching the news about the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Tampa, Florida, allow me to offer you a perspective you may not hear every day - that of an American Ron Paul Republican.

I am a Precinct Committeeman in my local Republican Party (RP), which is a low-level party office. For the last six years I have been a Ron Paul supporter. For those politically homeless Americans who value civil liberties, scepticism of war, and social liberalism of the so-called 'left', yet want the smaller government, reduced spending, and sound money often preached about from the 'right', Ron Paul and his libertarian, classical liberal philosophy has offered a welcoming home.

No need to worry

The RNC/GOP has no need to worry about blowback because of the way they mistreated Ron Paul, that's why they were so in your face about it, They have control of the voting machines and therefore, there is NO WORRY for them.
A friend of mine had said this about the machines many years ago, but I was skeptical then, I now believe those machines are completely rigged...
RIGGED is the new emblem of the GOP.
Vote Ron Paul for peace, liberty, and prosperity.

They prefer to lose in November to losing control of the GOP.

They don't care that Mitt the Twitt will lose.

They want to retain control of the RNC and deny America a real choice this election.

romney can not win without

romney can not win without our votes. We have the power to control whether or not he becomes president, and I intend to actively campaign against him to make sure he does not. Its blowback time.

The GOP and Mitt Romney

The GOP and Mitt Romney brought upon their own doom

Its not just that they snubbed him

its that they didnt give him anything, and then stepped on his supporters, and then made rules that pretty much said "and dont come back". If he dont want us before the election how bad will it get after the election.

Thanks for posting

Why DON"T we all just keep it simple!

We were never Republicans in the first place.

It was Ron Paul who convinced us to join this corrupt party. After the way he was treated, and our grass roots efferts were treated, we won't be staying. It's that simple!

We were told by the GOP elitists to get the HELL out of the party many times during the race, and now is the time to do exactly that. It's that simple!

Our protest vote against Romney will only be seen if WE ALL unite behind a “Third Party Candidate”. It's that simple!

If we have to vote between the lessor of two evils, let’s make it the lessor of three. It's that simple!

The GOP WILL NOT learn a lesson from all of this, unless we unite and do ALL of the Above!

It's that simple!

but your talking nonsense, You can leave if you want but know that all the accomplishments we achieved on a nation, state, and local levels would go to waste. Our delegates in the GOP are still in there and they are helping the cause of Liberty by shaping this party in that direction. Ron Paul didnt just give us a reason to fight harder, he gave us a whole party to take over.

Alternative to leaving

No I don't think so

I think we are the true Republicans. Those Neocons are just democrats in disguise. I don't know. Either the dems have infiltrated the Republican Party or a third entity has infiltrated both parties. Either way there is a cancer in our system and we are the cure.

I think we are the true Republicans. The true Democrats are out there somewhere...maybe some of them are in the occupy movement.

somehow we must come together. United we stand, divided we fall

Youre close. Dems, Pubs, just

Youre close. Dems, Pubs, just a label. What is infesting these parties is a corrupt establishment oligarchy who wants you to believe in Red vs Blue. If you are dazzled by the colors of the Jerseys you are still not fully cognisant of the situation. Doug Wead said it best. Insiders and Outsiders are the divide we need to concentrate on breaking.

I will be staying

I don't know about your state laws and what it took for you to get your low level office, but for me, I had to campaign, which I did as a Ron Paul Republican. My seat is a TWO year committment, which I had to convince people in my community to give me.

For me to abandon my seat is not a reflection on anyone but me. Do I think anyone would respect me for abandoning a seat due to an election fraud? Sure, by those who didn't support me in the first place.

The lesson the GOP needs to learn is THE CONSTITUTION, as this is what Ron Paul armed us with, what we also signed a loyalty oath to, and what I intend to hold my committee members, the same way they held me to the lotalty oath of the GOP. The difference is all they could do is unseat me, I could have them charged with treason. So why should I want to leave KNOWING I have the greatest arms of all in my seat?

I'm staying IN the GOP and I'm holding my committee to THE CONSTITUION. I am not going to run away with excuses to not fight but remain marginalized, and allow them to remain in power.

Snubbing RP

AND picking Romney has the candidate is why they will lose the election.

This MUST be reiterated over and over because RP will be blamed

for Romney's loss. It must be made clear that it was their treatment of Ron Paul and not because "Ron Paul's followers" wouldn't unite for Romney.



It was SOOO much more than a snub

Snubbed just at the convention? Gashuffer's post blacked him out too throughout this debacle of an election cycle.
They don't need us, so we'll vote accordingly....DUH!
