It is truly staggering the stupidity and peevishness of the RNC. Romney needs ALL registered republicans, a few independents, and even some dems to vote for him. Their criminal behavior guarantees that Barack Obama will be president. (not that I was going to vote for Ron Paul anyway). Seeing as Obama will continue the same policies overall that the establishment wants maybe they think they win either way and that it was more important to stop the only candidate who would bring about real change, who has real vision and who understands the real role of government. On a bright note, it is clear we were a lot closer to the prize than many of us even thought otherwise it would not have elicited such an overt silencing.
