How did the GOP cheat Ron Paul?

Whenever I get a chance, I try to convince republicans that the GOP needs to embrace the libertarian-leaning conservatives who they disenfranchised during the election.

I debate neocons on this tirelessly, but one thing that comes up a lot in discussion is the notion that "Ron Paul didn't have near enough support to get the nomination." Many times I counter this with "Then why did the GOP exert so much effort to literally cheat him out of a possible nomination?"

This is where I need your help; many people are completely ignorant to all the cheating (because the MSM refused to report it.) So they'll ask "what cheating?" ... and unfortunately, my memory is a little hazy. I remember something about the GOP breaking rule 11(?) where you cannot help a candidate financially unless he is the nominee. I also remember an issue with rule 34(?) which states that you cannot "bind" delegates to vote for a certain candidate... And of course there was a lot of wrongful disenfranchisement of duly elected Ron Paul delegates across various states.

I've tried googling this stuff, but I'm not getting the whole picture... So if any of you can enumerate (with links, or an article listing all of it,) all of the ways the GOP/RNC and Romney colluded to keep Dr. Paul from success, it would be greatly appreciated, and it would really help me do some convincing.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Not being a d!ck... just

Not being a d!ck...

just youtube it and youll see the video evidence

We started a thread on verifiable evidence, it is a little messy

in that it is raw evidence in many cases, but it definitely shows cheating, not to mention bone breaking, etc. Anyone who wants to add to it, feel free, but do note the cautions in the OP to keeping it stuff that can be verified as if for a court of law. You dont' have to be the one who CAN verify it if you know who can and can help try to contact them, though. http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?385414-Compilati...

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

The GOP...

- cheated in the primary/caucus process through voter intimidation
- banned legally-elected RP delegates from being seated in Tampa for no reason
- intentionally delayed a bus full of RP delegates' arrival at the convention site
- went ahead with grassroots-destroying rule changes even when the nays CLEARLY had it
- wouldn't allow RP to be "eligible" for the nomination when he had pluralities in enough states AND the necessary paperwork filed
- wouldn't even give RP the speaking slot he was entitled to by the party's own rules

I don't play, I commission the league.

lets not forget

the attempt to stuff the Nevada convention with over 300 fake delegates

Ron Paul did not ahve the Repiblicans he needed

Ron Paul has a HUGE non-Republican fan club. The non-republican fan clud didn't help Ron Paul win. They actually wanted Ron Paul to lose so they souls say, "Told you so!" and "Run as pres of the LP, or Indy or start a new party!".

I think this is the Morton Blackwell interneiw.. it's explains the cheating.
