Iowa GOP Co-Chair: Ron Paul supporters disenfranchising Republicans (Video)

Bill Schickel, the co-chair of the Republican Party of Iowa, on Saturday blasted the dominance of Ron Paul supporters within the state party.

“The words are fine about reaching out and opening the doors of our party, but when are our chair, our executive director, our communications director, our finance director are all from the Campaign for Liberty that sends a message that is disenfranchising to many, many of our Republicans,” he told GOP central committee members. “So, that is one of the reasons I am running, to bring all of these groups together.”

Is that what Romney and the GOP did to Ron Paul and his supporters at the national convention?


exactly! Shady bastards stole the election from us and tell us that they feel disenfranchised?? Screw em!

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Do let the door hit you on the way out...



I love it when they look the youth in their eyes and expose their dastardly ways.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

When the Neocons took over the Republican party

They disenfranchised all the republicans should be the response to this Idiot.

Do your best have no expectations


Turn about is fair play.

Schadenfreude is unacceptable

To all of you below who are laughing at the losers, you are engaging in the EXACT SAME BEHAVIOR they did to us.

That means you DESERVE TO LOSE.

Emulate Ron Paul. He would not do that.

You should be ASHAMED of yourselves.

Ho, ho, ho... Are you taking

Ho, ho, ho... Are you taking the word of the guy in the video over Paul supporters? Why? From his point of view, of course he's being marginalized. He's losing!

No. Just scroll down on this page to see the Schadenfreude.

It's very anti-Ron Paul, as Ron Paul would NEVER engage in Schadenfreude like this. Do not become the enemy.

If this counterpunch wasn't expected, then someone is naive.

AJ and Drew should have been out in front of this. They should have known this was coming.

Boo hoo. STFU and GTFO.

Boo hoo.


C4L "disenfranchises" people?????????????????????????

HE needs to send me a 500 word essay on why he believes that.

I instantly do not like this guy.

Bill Schickel, the FORMER co-chair of the Republican Party of Iowa (LMAO).



Watch this dry yet astonishing Dr. Robert Beck cancer treatment lecture on Google Video - search "Suppressed Medical Discovery" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkiX0jJJozk

Who is this guy, Dick Cheney's Iowa cousin?

so you become a party co-chair, and immediately go on the attack against the base of your state party (like it or not). absolutely unbelievable! this man must be tied to their Governor, Brandstadt, who (if the caucus results are to be trusted) single-highhandedly undermined Ron Paul's looming victory there with his "If Ron Paul wins the Iowa caucus, ignore it- or it will discredit the entire first in the nation status"

And, big surprise- the lobbyists and special interest groups arent pouring cash into the state party with liberty people in charge there. This seems to be a big problem for all places where liberty activists are victorious.

I predict that both parties will soon do away with grassroots state organizations completely. They'll probably leave a shell organization with appointees that will run events and such. But think about it: how many regular folks donate to their state GOP?

Bill Schickel knows

disenfranchisement, is better served than consumed...

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Shill-kle disenfranchisement confusion

Disenfranchisement is when The RNC enjoins the DNC and the campaigns of all the other 'Republicans' to thwart the will of the people of Iowa from having Ron Paul as the winner of the Ames straw poll.

the winner of the Ames straw poll gets to bask in the glow of the media spotlight and the elites pooled all of their forces and still had to cheat to 'beat' Ron Paul, and keep him, US, from our hard earned victory.

DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz vowed to engage in mischief at Ames, she, Ed Rollins, Reince Preibus, Iowa Gov Terry the 'traitor' Branstad, and the campaigns and even family members of the other 'Republicans' conspired to keep Ron from winning, and even with all of that they had to 'scatter' more votes than Ron needed to beat Bachmann

Hometown girl Bachmann brought in Randy Travis to perform at the fair, but anyone who wanted to see the show, had to cast their vote for Bachmann to get inside, so many of her 'supporters' were really just country music fans with no allegiance to her, but when the opposition saw that our numbers were the biggest EVER, they all got together and all of the Democrat operatives, and many of the campaign people and family members of the other candidates also had to vote for Bachmann as she was the only other candidate anywhere near Ron Paul.

Wasserman Schultz swore to cause mischief, and the only possible mischief that her operatives COULD have caused mischief was by voting for Bachmann. No other vote they could have made would have had any effect on the outcome, and they DAMN SURE didn't vote for Ron!

So shill-kle IS totally confused about the meaning of disenfranchisement.

What he did was disenfranchisement, what WE did, and will continue to do, is defend and uphold our constitutions and institutions, the honorable way, the American way.

We will not be stopped, like shill-kle, all who stand in our way as we restore our Republic are going to get steam rolled, SO YOU HAD ALL JUST BETTER GET THE HELL OUTTA OUR WAY!

What Bachman did was smart.

We could have had Penn and Teller, Carrot Top and Vince Vaughn, but didn't.

But Randy Travis wasn't enough...

Even with Randy Travis and all of the completely disaffected 'voters' who went oblivious of her positions into the show, Bachmann wasn't close to Ron Paul.

Only by the collusion of Bachmanns campaign with RNC AND DNC, and hundreds of DEMOCRAT OPERATIVES votes, and the 'scattering' was the GOP able to steal OUR victory, if you wish to chalk the outcome up to anything except VOTER DISENFRANCHISEMENT, that is your free choice, but it isn't part of reality.

It wasn't only there either, state after state after state the LIBERAL NEOCON elites pulled every dirty dictator trick in the book to rob us of our true vote counts, and to puff up all the other turd candidates.

Waaaaaaaaaaa!!! Booo hooo hooooo! Waaaaaaa!

Waaaaaaaaaaa!!! Booo hooo hooooo! Waaaaaaa!

What a cry-baby! Maybe you should get a pacifier to suck on dude.

And he went on to lose 13-4.

It's all about LIBERTY dummy.

It isn't and never was all about Ron Paul. All of those state central committee members that were associated with the Ron Paul presidential campaigns became friends and allies because of the PRINCIPLES that they shared. When they ran for district and state party offices, they won because of the PRINCIPLES that they held. If your old guard buddies in the GOP feel "disenfranchised" it is only because of the PRINCIPLES that they lack.

This is sad...

... because it seems to be the norm for the Republican Party these days. He states positions held by Ron Paul supporters and admits they're all good people. It seems as though there is a dwindling, old group of Republicans who have gotten used to power (much like politicians these days), don't want to let it go, but who are so out of touch with the real world, they cannot represent the people! As Ron Paul stated in one of the debates, he was the most conservative candidate within the Republican Party. These guys just want to maintain the status quo and that just doesn't work.

Ohhh The Irony!

I don't even know where to begin, lmao!

Sour grapes...

om nom nom nom. :)

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

AJ's Speech

Translation: Ron Paul

Translation: Ron Paul's supporters are disenfranchising neo-conservatives. Personally, I don't see a problem. Obama is the warmongering neo-conservatives' crazy uncle so they should join their kin in the Democratic party.

He's just a sore loser

and he forgets how EXTREMELY unfair cheaters they were to Dr. Paul in the election! He's dang lucky he isn't run out of town!!

"that sends a message"...

"that sends a message"... Damn right it sends a message. One that the Republican party forgot.

Pot Meet Kettle. Kettle Meet Pot.

Is this guy from a parallel universe where Ron Paul supporters are doing the disenfranchising, instead of being disenfranchised? What a sore loser!
