Lone SC Vote for RP = NOT Tom Davis (was tricked by party)

Well, I guess I'll call this "going out in a blaze of glory" -- as many of you know I am sick to death of the GOP and am finishing my term and never looking back. Call me a quitter whatever, God and I know what I've put forth for Liberty and I'm called away from the "stench".

But before I go, I wanted to expose something about SC's lone vote for RP at the RNC. The lone vote was not Tom Davis. At first I was seething, then I found out Tom Davis had been tricked. A) He had already placed as delegate within his district convention B) Then again was picked [I believe within the top ten of 1 hundred thirty-something] as "At-Large" at our state convention. Well at Tampa "they" convinced Tom Davis that he MUST vote with his district which apparently was the only district in SC to not vote Newton and supposedly voted Mittens (sure, sure). Every state has crazytown rules but I've been told that since Tom Davis also took "At-Large" he could have voted "unbound by Newt" and voted RP.

I have not asked if it was okay to reveal who the real lone vote for RP was so I can't say but will tell that this person stood his ground and was the true single SC vote for RP. It's a wonder SCGOP didn't threaten to have him drawn and quartered.

I just want it on record what happened with SC at Tampa....especially since Tom Davis was an RP champion till the bitter end up to Tampa.

I might would still say that TD was questionable as to his personal moral fortitude, his 'constitution' - but "Mr. Meek & Mild single RP voter" when asked by me, face to face, how I should feel about the TD situation promptly pulled two Tom Davis bumper stickers from his shirt pocket for my husband and myself. So if you hear any other bunk about Tom Davis, don't believe it.

Just another thing I needed to get off my chest which is over-loaded with several terms of witnessing GOP crime (force, fraud, violence).

Here at the daily paul you're pretty much just preaching to the choir.

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:

The highly anticipated

RNC was a sham and a joke. No rules, unethical and immoral actions all performed in plain sight. This represents a future Romney (or any status quo GOP politician) administration.

The Dems are no better...just didn't have the controversy to deal with at their convention.

Thank you SC Butterfly...

First off I must say....

THANK YOU FOR THIS POST! You have no idea how important this is./was that you posted this.

Things are not all as they seem , and there may something afoot behind the walls of public knowledge that will change the playing field soon enough. This post may help that along.

I also had something happen like this in Nevada in 08, we raised all this money and helped a delegate go to national who was bound for RP, but was conned into voting for dead man mcain. A turncoat she was, and is (in my mind) as she was swayed by "promises" of who knows what if she just voted for him and not RP.
Its good to know that SC still had at least 1 person w/ enough integrity to stand up for correct thought and justice!


I cannot comment on this article other than to say as someone who was from SC and should have been seated as an alternate and was not, was in Tampa witnessed first hand the RNC & GOP actions under advisement of legal council. This is NOT over by an means!

You people are gutless.

If some republican threatened me to vote for Mitt or else I would laugh in his face. At the state convention I threw Ron paul right in their face and was happy to stir it up. Seriously, this liberty movement has to get a lot tougher and meaner if we are going to affect anything. Grow a pair for crying out loud.

Did Jesus just meekly sulk off after being threatened with arrest? this faction of pussilanimous Christians makes me ill.

No but Peter cut off the ear of the servant of the high priest

who came to arrest Jesus. Jesus healed the servant's ear and rebuked Peter.

Matthew 26:52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

Jesus "went away" (especially to a garden) to deal alone with many things. Of course he was not "sulking".

False rebuttal

You are equating resistance with violence. I do not advocate violence. Liberty advocates need to grow a spine. Stop wussing out. Get tough, like Jesus.

So it is me that you are accusing of "sulking"?

You don't know or understand me, nor have you read my previous posts.

"Get tough like Jesus", cannot be fully humanly obtained. There is none (of us) that's righteous, "no not one". All our righteousness are as "filthy rags". This is scriptural but you can look it up by search to verify if needed.

I've been telling SC for nigh unto 5 years now "Shake off that wishbone and get some backbone". I guess you'll dispute that as well?

God knows my heart and I'm done with you.

Godspeed @ SC Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

You heard God's voice and you obeyed. Rest in Him and follow on to know Him. There is much He wants to teach you and this is why He is taking you aside. Here is some writing from a Christian sister who passed away in December 2010. The articles to read to start are A Portion of Manna and Apple of His Eye.

http://www.lighthouselibrary.com/ Look up her work under her name in the Authors' Directory.

Her name is Barbara J. Strauser and she was from Sullivan Missouri. She was called aside in the early 1980's and developed a very deep relationship with the Lord from a very shallow beginning.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Dr. Mike was the Lone Vote for Ron Paul in SC

He says so in this video at the 6 minute mark. http://youtu.be/3yloTz_qTgE

Thanks SO MUCH SC Butterfly

Thanks SO MUCH SC Butterfly for all you have done and will continue to do - if Tom Davis decides to run for Senate I am on board as of now - Really, I bowed out of official GOP service 3 yrs ago, just could not do it - you are stronger than I!
TE in SC

From this article


According to The (Columbia) State newspaper, Davis' allegiance was so strong he tried to cast his nominating ballot for Paul instead of Republican nominee Mitt Romney. However, S.C. Republican Party Chairman Chad Connelly told him he couldn't.

"I want to cast my vote for Ron Paul," Davis said to Connelly, the paper reported.

Connelly reminded Davis of the rules but promised to include in party records that Davis wanted to vote for Paul.

We've been round and round with Connelly

....Deacon of his church. ???? My husband confronted him about SCGOP Booing the Golden Rule @ RP during Myrtle Beach,SC 2012 debate and he actually had the nerve to say they weren't booing the Golden Rule, they were booing Ron Paul's use of the Golden Rule. Connelly tried to turn everything around on my husband until my husband reminded him (at my urging only) that the only reason he was in the stinking GOP was because of his Uncle, a former Chief Justice of SC State Supreme Court and former SC Speaker of the House. I guess it's tacky but Connelly shrunk back a little then.

UM, how can the Golden Rule EVER be taken out of context right?

Waaay back when our state convention was voting for our new state chairman, a head tea party lady in front of me turned around after the second round of voting which was pretty much tied (they wanted Connelly, I did not) and asked "What can we do to get you to change your vote?" to which I replied "You'd have to burn me at the stake."

SC has lost it's Liberty Liver, Goodbye Ft. Moultrie, goodbye Cowpens, goodbye Ft. Sumter. :(

Deacon, Elder, Pastor...

means nothing. All just cultural status symbols. I have read the requirements for these positions many, many times and have yet to see a man (or woman) honor these positions, yet they are appointed.

One of the main reasons we stay home and worship.

Don't despair...these things have to happen for Scripture to be fulfilled. What matters is that we remain true to the One we serve.

Look up!

If Tom Davis decides to

primary Lindsey Graham, will you help him?

He's going to need all the help he can get. Lindsey has over $4 million cash on hand right now and has the name recognition.

We should help

him win it just like all the liberty minded people pulled out all the stops to get Rand elected against the wishes of the party leadership. We can money bomb Tom Davis's campaign and get him $4 million in no time. This video needs to be seen 1.2 million times, not 12,000.

What if a more thoughtful, deep question MAY be:

"What if I care for some of these good guys so much, I'd rather not see them 'French Revolutioned'?" Remember history when "the levee breaks", tyrants do not fair well and anything seemingly associated with aristocracy, even so much as "seamstress for the tyrant". Correct?

Once I witnessed "the final act", aka Tampa - after Scene 3, SC Primary, I moved more from political to spiritual. Indeed I've always "quandried" over my balance between politics and evangelism. For me personally, evangelism is winning.

IDK. I will prayerfully consider. To me, at this point, federal offices, (state offices even) seem kind of like window-dressing. As far as I can tell, in a Republic, your highest office is that of Sheriff, which is a local vote. Study Printz, Mack v US please.

I may or may not even need to participate in that vote, as Chuck Wright, my Sheriff, does not appear to ever be being "let go". I have high hopes CW is on the right path.

You're leaving the GOP is reason for TPTB to celebrate! They are cheering you!!! Thnaking you for getting out of their way to destroy the Republic.

Still, I love you, and hope you find happiness in whatever you do.

Sometimes just shake the dust off your sandals.

There is a libertarian case to be made for just being a good neighbor. One who respects privacy, personal property, traditions. (AKA The Deathly Hallows).

I trust your choice.

I was reading Ruth the other

I was reading Ruth the other night in the Bible (it's only four chapters), and noticed that giving a shoe used to confirm a testimony, and wonder if this was referring to that tradition in part.

Ruth 4
7 Now this was the manner in former time in Israel concerning redeeming and concerning changing, for to confirm all things; a man plucked off his shoe, and gave it to his neighbour: and this was a testimony in Israel.

8 Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe.

9 And Boaz said unto the elders, and unto all the people, Ye are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was Elimelech's, and all that was Chilion's and Mahlon's, of the hand of Naomi.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

So if no testimony is accepted, move on.

? Interesting point. I got to thinking about the shoe tossed on stage when Bush was in Iraq.

A testimony? Hmmm... I don't know enough, but it interesting point to ponder. Thanks Max

I know


I understand and don't blame you, for your loss is MY loss too, maybe more than you know. So just know, I love you!

Focus on the love expressed in your last sentence,.....

rather than the hate expressed in the first part of your comment.

Some people want to remain pure rather than interacting with these amoral people. It takes a certain kind of person who can stand this stuff. Ron Paul didn't want any part of them either.
