Disappointed by the sheep here

A few people (myself included) have brought up the factual inaccuracies in this report. I was hoping that would spark some level headed discussion. Instead, those posts are voted down and all we get are a bunch of mindless sheep posts talking about how awesome we are and how awesome Ben Swann is.

Here are some facts:

1. Romney won 90% of the vote in the 2008 Utah primary. McCain did not win it by 62% as Ben Swann reports. As far as I know, Ben Swann has made no effort to correct that.

2. Some states have laws about delegate binding. For example, the Revolution News Network posted on Ben Swann's Facebook account Georgia law: O.C.G.A. § 21-2-196, TITLE 21. ELECTIONS, CHAPTER 2. ELECTIONS AND PRIMARIES GENERALLY , ARTICLE 5. PRESIDENTIAL PREFERENCE PRIMARY. If the RNC can override state law (I don't believe that they can) to make all delegates unbound, then the RNC can do anything, including not seating Ron Paul delegates, ejecting people from the convention, or creating new rules to bind everyone's vote.

Everyone should stop patting each other on the back. We have long odds and a dog fight to get anywhere in the RNC. I'm really disappointed that people here are willing to overlook inaccuracies in Ben Swann's reporting when we get upset at inaccuracies on reporting from MSM regarding Ron Paul. I didn't bother watching Ben Swann's report on the NDAA because I don't want to fact check it.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
