Time for Turk 182 and $2

Romney may be able to control what happens in a convention hall, but he can't control what people see and hear at all of his campaign stops. I suggest that a large liberty contingent attends every Romney campaign stop and start chanting "change the rules back", perhaps wearing T-shirts with 'Rule 12 and Rule 16'. Maybe even some chants of "Romney/Ryan Rigged" and "Shame".

I think we should pass out slim jims with one side detailing the major points of Romney/RNC convention corruption. Perhaps the other side could detail the major ways Romney and Obama are the same and end with a line encouraging people to vote 3rd party or write in a candidate.

We should not let what happened at the convention die. I don't know if there are any legal avenues to pursue, but we've got to keep what happened front and center in the eyes of the people. This idea made me think of the movie "Turk 182" - here's the trailer:


I think we ought to be as relentless as this paperboy:

The problem

The problem is that if we don't do something like this to pressure/shame the RNC into changing those two rules back to what they were, WE won't have a shot in 2016.

but beware H.R. 347

There will be restricted areas and plenty of SS.

"The original statute, unchanged by H.R. 347,made certain conduct with respect to these restricted areas a crime, including simple trespass, actions in or near the restricted area that would "disrupt the orderly conduct of Government," and blocking the entrance or exit to the restricted area.

H.R. 347 did make one noteworthy change, which may make it easier for the Secret Service to overuse or misuse the statute to arrest lawful protesters.

Without getting too much into the weeds, most crimes require the government to prove a certain state of mind. Under the original language of the law, you had to act "willfully and knowingly" when committing the crime. In short, you had to know your conduct was illegal. Under H.R. 347, you will simply need to act "knowingly," which here would mean that you know you're in a restricted area, but not necessarily that you're committing a crime."
