Having previously participated in two state conventions

I'd just like to say, some chairs have a way of controlling the mic and not listening or even to be slightly inclined to listen. The establishment type of chairs have been pre-programed, the direction of the agenda has been scripted, and they are off and running. I've seen RP people properly bring the point of order, questions, whatever is warranted and they are simply being ignored. Sounds easy to know the rules and use them, but in practice the party is in control and it can be the doggonedest frustration and (must be controlled) anger you can imagine. I have seen RP delegates able to use Rules of Order, the RNC rules with a real flare and accuracy, only to be ignored or have the old rules now become the new rules to accomodate the direction needed for establishmen control.
