A view from the other side: GOP got railroaded..


Fascinating little insight into the reactions occurring on the other side as people find out, personally, that Ron Paul has a path to the nomination..

Also an issue that is going to have to be dealt with over time - there is a lot of division on both sides regarding this election.

Alabama Election Fraud -Video Proof!? Wow!

Saw this on Ben Swann's facebook page!! I understand this is not 100% hard proof, but it is the video evidence we need more of, both at the primaries and the caucases. It just makes you wonder after everthing that's happened up to this point. Thank you Dustin!

This is happening a lot around AL right now... I recorded this clip, and then hours later my grandmother went in to vote. I told her to scan her ballot using the other machine (She too is a Paul supporter), and the exact same thing happened to her. We both were told we had to put our ballots in a box to be counted later.

GOP Feels Their Cheating is Justified

In the 2008 election cycle, I noticed the Texas Republicans in my district convention (Travis County, N. Austin) pushed their loyalist insiders very hard to turn out and battle Ron Paul supporters for delegate slots. They sent out mailers (on a non-partisan non-profit's stationery and dime) saying that anti-family, anti-life insurgents were trying to take over the party. They also did robo-calls (from the same non-profit) with the same message. At the convention, they wired up homeschool kids with secret mics so they would be able to monitor and relay the conversations of certain RP targets they were instructed to benignly approach. Robert's Rules were selectively enforced, points-of-order routinely ignored, "plants" stationed at microphones to steer the agenda, and protesters threatened with expulsion if they objected to the chairman's heavy-handed tactics. This was a level of desperation and paranoia I was not anticipating. It got even worse at the RNC Convention with a blacklist complete with photos, and RP supporters assigned to various party elite for monitoring and harassment. The McCain security force inside the arena picked up where the state party leadership left off, monitoring media interviews and confiscating non-McCain literature from peoples' pockets and purses.

I am not surprised by the rampant election fraud taking place across the board this primary season. My theory is that these good Christian folks feel justified in lying, cheating, intimidating, and stealing because they believe the Republican Party is being hijacked by gay, pot-smoking anarchists. They act like valiant warriors, praying confusion and discord upon RP activists in the name of Jesus. I witnessed this at a "Prayer Breakfast" in Austin. I now call their meeting the "Curse Breakfast" because that is literally what they do over coffee and barbecued pork tacos.

My theory is that the GOP establishment feels justified in cheating to avoid what they perceive as a hijacking. Little do they know that we will be successful regardless of their dirty dealings, even if all we have to do is outlive them. Discuss.

Rick Santorum: "Vote for Ron Paul" if you want limited government.

I thought this had to be a joke, but clicked on it anyway. And sure enough, he said it. I'd think this really needs to go viral....

Alleged Photos of "Clean-up" at Iran's Parchin Site Lack Credibility

WASHINGTON, Mar 12, 2012 (IPS) - News stories about satellite photographs suggesting efforts by Iran to "sanitise" a military site that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has said may have been used to test nuclear weapons have added yet another layer to widely held suspicion that Iran must indeed be hiding a covert nuclear weapons programme.

But the story is suspect, in part because it is based on evidence that could only be ambiguous, at best. The claim does not reflect U.S. intelligence, and a prominent think tank that has published satellite photography related to past controversies surrounding Iran's nuclear programme has not found any photographs supporting it.

The original Parchin clean-up story by Associated Press correspondent George Jahn, published Mar. 7, reported that two unnamed diplomats from an unidentified country or countries – it was not made clear how many were involved – told him that satellite photos "appear to show trucks and earth-moving vehicles" at the site.
