Ron Paul: The last Republican challengerSubmitted by DeMolay on Mon, 09/03/2012 - 05:07
WASHINGTON, D.C., September 4, 2012 — The Republican National Convention has officially come to a close, and Mitt Romney stands as the Republican nominee. Along the way, many bore witness to party efforts designed to ensure that there was no protest or dissent at the convention, with shenanigans specifically aimed at the Ron Paul delegates.
Throughout the convention, unsavory tactics were employed against the Paulian delegates, and new rules implemented. Love or hate the Paul ideology, the new rules imposed by the GOP have terrible implications not just for Ron Paul supporters, but for all future anti-establishment candidates that seek to modify, enhance, or “cast a wider net” for the Republican Party.
