We Will Not Forget: Write in Ron Paul for Our Beaten and Arrested Delegates in the States Where it Will CountSubmitted by Sue4theBillofrights on Mon, 09/10/2012 - 17:52
States where the write votes will be counted: AL, IA, WI, PA, CA, VT, NH, DE, OR
One thing that irks me about all the Johnsonites now swarming this site who say: "Get over it! You lost! Now vote for Gary Johnson!" is it's not that simple. A cynical calculation was made that "Those Ron Paul votes are now all OURS! Let's go in and swamp them and browbeat them UNTIL THEY SUBMIT, JUST LIKE THEY HAD TO FOR THE GOP!"
It's not that simple now because of guys like Alex Helwig, who found out that playing by the rules and winning means nothing to some people. He was arrested during the fracas at the Louisiana GOP and came out of jail with broken fingers.
It's not that simple because of Henry Herford, Jr., an elderly handicapped gentleman and newly-elected Ron Paul chairman who was pushed to the floor by off-duty Shreveport police goons hired by the leadership. He reportedly suffered a dislocated hip.
In a Missouri parking lot where locked out Ron Paulers finally held their own convention, a SWAT team was called to break up the peaceful assembly.
When we go into the eight states where write-in votes are counted without a candidate's signed declaration of intent (meaning we don't have to bother Dr. Paul, we can do it all ourselves,) we aren't just choosing to vote for the man who best and most CONSISTENTLY articulates our message.
WE HAVE OUR HEROES TO REMEMBER. Those who bravely waded into the uncharted waters of the GOP snakepit to contend with whatever they found.
Even after the convention the State was not done with Ron Paul, as 8 TSA agents descended on his party as they were boarding a private plane out of Tampa.
"After a long examination of the pilots and their credentials, the agents said they had to check the plane for explosives. One of the pilots noted that the plane, full of gas, was already a bomb. Then Carol Paul, who has a heart pacemaker, refused to be screened, and an aide started taking video of the whole rotten proceeding. At that point, the TSA backed down and let them through."
LOL nevermind Dr. Paul. It's Mrs. Paul who restored order with those boys.
This rich legacy of skulduggery and brutality provides enormous material for our write-in campaign for the states where it will count: AL, IA, WI, PA, CA, VT, NH, DE.
It makes me cry every time I watch the videos of what some of us went through. Just for exercising our right to participate in the process. I also feel like I AM THE ONE BEING ATTACKED.
You guys go off spend your time on this whole Johnson debate if you want. I will spend every last bit of time and energy I have until election day working on making the Ron Paul write-in vote get heard around the world, in the states it will count.
I for one, will never forget.
