From the summary on Amazon:
Transparency? Fair elections? Truth in media? Who controls? A government for and by the people? A come-from-behind Warren G. Harding victory?
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney won the nomination in Tampa at the GOP national convention. But the last standing Republican presidential candidate to Romney, Dr. Ron Paul, had an army of grassroots delegates headed to the national convention.
Republican primaries and caucuses began in early 2012, followed by Republican state conventions; presidential candidate Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) had solid, consistent support. But alleged fraud in certain early primary/caucus contests, deceptive and unfair practices at state GOP conventions, and the mainstream media's dismissive attitude about Paul's presidential bid certainly impeded his candidacy.
At many state GOP conventions where delegates to the national convention were selected, Ron Paul amassed delegate majorities. While these victories were won based on the rules in play and his number of delegates swelled, subsequent challenges arose. At the national convention, the party leadership and formal structure actually de-credentialed Paul delegates, preventing Ron Paul's name from being put in nomination.
Yet the RNC rules clearly stipulated that a presidential candidate's name can be placed in nomination with a plurality of delegates in five or more states. That threshold was clearly met by presidential candidate Ron Paul. Stolen victories? Vigilance and political engagement are required now more than ever! This book provides insights about the unfolding events and circumstances surrounding the presidential nomination process from winning state delegates, to Tampa, the general election, and its aftermath.
