There seems to be a

There seems to be a discussion as to what exactly “shall” means in-terms of “must.” We can infer by looking at Conceal Carry Licenses that “shall” means that a State must issue a CCL unless there is significant reason not to issue it; however, if there was a “must” issue State, then that would mean the the State cannot deny a license to anybody for any reason -they “must” issue.

So, if we apply this understanding of “shall” to the Oklahoma law, then each delegate and alternate delegate “must” vote for Romney on all ballots unless there is significant reason not to vote for Romney -say an investigation to his involvement in a 8 billion dollar ponzi scheme- maybe significant reason not to vote for him.

Also, even if one was not to question the law at all, RP supporters should still try to be delegates in every State possible, because they could still effect the RNC RULES and Platform which is also desired. For even when Dr. Paul gets nominated if the RNC RULES and Platform haven't been changed then we all will be fighting the same machine every single election for every office. RP supporters “must” take positions of power within the RNC to allow greater support for Liberty minded individuals running for office. It isn't fun or easy taking on the entire machine for each and every election, so to better support Liberty minded candidates and to transform the message outward into the populace it is necessary to take and hold the local, State, and National GOP offices and positions.
