towards getting the straw vote process to be transparent. At this time, voting machines can be manipulated, and since most states don't have public websites that post results by precinct, the public has no way to cross check the final vote counts for the straw votes=UNVERIFIABLE We should not allow the states to "Bound" or "Pledge" delegates according to Unverifiable Voting Results. At the national delegate conference in Tampa, a delegate could theoretically just stand up an make a simple motion to Unbound All Bound Delegates... And if the majority of the delegate body is Ron Paul supporters, this could easily pass and we need not worry about bounding or pledging issues on say the first ballot etc... There are many ways delegates can handle the bounding or pledging issue... Also, remember a "bound" or "pledged" delegate is comparable to a politician making a pledge or a promise to do something once elected. In the end, you can't force a delegate to vote any certain way. This is called Voter's Rights. This whole "bound" or "pledges" bullsh*t is just peer pressure by the establishment. That's why it's so important for us to elect delegates to go to Tampa who will not give in to someone trying to tell them how to vote.
