Author believes GOP stole the nomination from Ron Paul

In a provocative book released this week, author Michael S. Alford makes a powerful case that the GOP establishment stole the Republican nomination from Congressman Ron Paul. The book is entitled, Swindled: How the GOP Cheated Ron Paul and Lost Themselves the Election, Alford presents compelling evidence gathered from first-hand testimonials, video evidence, and news reports from the 2012 Caucuses and Primaries that he believes points to a conspiracy by the GOP Establishment to take votes away from Dr. Paul and give them to other candidates. Alford believes that if not for this conspiracy, Congressman Paul would have won the Republican nomination.

Perhaps more importantly for the nation, according to Alford, had the GOP not committed this massive fraud, Congressman Paul would have rejuvenated the Republican Party as the candidate of liberty and limited government. Instead, the Republicans nominated Mitt Romney, a candidate who did nothing to reinvigorate the conservative identity. Alford believes the GOP "blew it" and the nation lost.

Alford is at a loss to understand why the GOP took this course of action because as the election results bore out, Governor Romney, the eventual nominee, was not a good candidate. Furthermore, by alienating the Liberty Movement and grass roots Conservatives, the Republican establishment may have depressed voter turnout and destroyed their own chances for maintaining power in the future.

The Puppetmasters decide, not the people

The president is just a figurehead. The whole process is nothing but a joke.

Is everything a conspiracy

Is everything a conspiracy now?

Of course, it isn't the movement's fault! It is the GOP's fault! The NWO fault!

Why should we take any personal responsibility for failing to get Ron Paul elected? Why should we blame the fact that people just don't care about liberty? No, just blame everyone else!

I would like to correct the author.
In no way did the GOP lose that election.
The GOP est. got EXACTLY who they wanted.

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

He's at a loss to understand??

The Demons in charge needed a fall guy to make it look like Beelzebub had someone running against him.

That's why they want our guns now.

People are waking up to the scam.

More are waking up to their lower paychecks.

They wil be WIDE awake when the dollar tanks.

They can't be pissed off, broke and have guns. That might be dangerous.
