It just says it affects Rule 15b, requiring you to read the 2008 rules if it is applicable - Not the whole thing. I'm watching reality check right now on another rule. We're going to need to know all the rules very well as other posters have said.

Edit: The proportional rule is different from the 50% penalty. The 50% penality is you lose total number of delegates at large - 16a. The proportional rule above is you can't have those delegates be from a winner take all election and is a different section - 15b.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
