My video on the dirty tricks being played at the Maine GOP Convention today.
Posted elsewhere, but I was told to post it again.
How the U.S. Media Has Had a Big Hand in Helping Ron Paul Win the Republican Nomination
A political editorial By Bryan Rusch
May 7th, 2012
It would seem absurd to think that the corporate free press in America is actually helping Ron Paul in his bid to become the Republican nominee doesn’t it? Well, not really. In fact, the news pundits and political analysts have actually done more harm than good to their latest “presumptive” nominee, “Willard (Mitt) Romney” than they have to the other last man standing in the Republican race, Ron Paul.
The cadre of established press corps in the United States may soon become the collective press corpse, unless they take drastic action to change course in the way they report the facts in this primary race. Of course it is now a damned if you do, damned if you don’t scenario for the establishment press. The question now is which course will they take?
So how has the U.S. media energized an irate, tireless, minority that is the Ron Paul phenomenon, or should I say, Revolution? First, they insult them, then belittle them, then try to ignore them, and then fight them, even if it means the establishment press’ peril of becoming completely irrelevant.

Mitt Romney wants nothing more than to lock up the Republican nomination and focus entirely on beating President Obama. But for Ron Paul’s supporters, the long primary season ain’t over till it’s over. The Texas congressman hasn’t won a single primary in his third run for the White House, yet his acolytes are much savvier at political maneuvering than in campaigns past. This year they’re determined to influence the nominating process at the GOP convention in Tampa.
To win the so-called roll call vote there and become the nominee, you need 1,144 delegates. Romney has 847. Paul has 80. Contest over, right?
Paul is actually gaining ground in some states, where intense contests to divvy up delegates are underway. At one gathering last weekend in Massachusetts, the majority of delegates elected were Paul supporters. He may do just as well in upcoming votes in Minnesota, Iowa, Colorado, and Maine, according to Josh Putnam, assistant political science professor at Davidson College.
That's the headline from the Portland Press Herald.
AUGUSTA — The second day of the Maine Republican State Convention is coming to an end, but the controversy continues.
Organizers at the Augusta Civic Center on Sunday said presidential candidate Ron Paul has won 22 state delegates that will go to the national GOP convention in Tampa, Fla., and fellow candidate Mitt Romney has won zero.
The results were based on voting Saturday night and Sunday.
Didn't see this posted...
My brother will be at the convention this weekend. He will be sending me text messages during the Convention to keep us all up to date.
Hopefully others will share their updates here as well........
Update #1 Just arrived at the center and I am currently standing on the Convention floor. It's going to a wild time. I will be here bright and early Saturday morning!!
Friends, I will be live streaming Ron Paul's address to the Nevada GOP Convention tomorrow, May 5th. I created a ustream account to accomplish this:

Breaking! The Patriots of Nevada Deliver. Ron Paul Delegates Win 25 of 28 Seats to Republican National Convention!Submitted by bobspirit on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 15:43
In a contentious and hardfought 20 hour marathon spanning 2 days the patriots of Nevada prevailed and put Ron Paul supporters in 25 of the 28 seats allocated to Nevada for the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
Included in those seats are the new national committee man and committee woman, both liberty lovers and supporters of Ron Paul.
This is an awesome against the odds victory as Romney captured a sizable majority of popular votes in the state caucus in February.
I can tell you from personal experience as a delegate to this state convention that liberty is alive and well in Nevada, and represented by an amazing group of dedicated and committed patriots.

In 2008 during the Republican presidential primary race, supporters of Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul would scream out, “Ron Paul!” Others would then reply, “Revolution!” (It’s not quite as good as my fellow Missouri Tigers when we yell, “M-I-Z!”, with a response of “Z-O-U!”) I must admit I don’t recall the revolutionaries screaming out that same Ron Paul chant this cycle. But while Paul has not won a single state so far this primary season, his followers could still make an impact.

Guess who is Catching on Folks 8)
21 of 24 delegates and all 21 alternates for Paul, three super-delegates of course are Romney's. We also won National Committeeman and Committeewoman and Presidential Electors.
Ten of the 13 have expressed public support for Paul, such as by donating money or volunteering for his campaign.
