The Convention is where delegates are meant to cast votes for the nominee, yet the Tampa Bay Times Forum was already plastered with embedded Romney banners, and additional 'Mitt' signs for people to hold were also smuggled in to make it appear that many are behind him. All Ron Paul material was promptly confiscated.
Six states filed to put Ron Paul into nomination while the rules still said it only took five states. Realizing this, the RNC met early Tuesday morning to change the rules in order to make the minimum needed as eight states, which Ron also would have had if the RNC had not decided to take the Ron Paul delegates away from LA and ME. One bus of delegates on the way to the RNC was essentially kidnapped for two hours, and arrived too late to vote on the matter said the RNC.
Rather than taking proper vote counts or listening to objections, several votes were clearly not unanimous, but this didn't stop the RNC "leaders" from ignoring the dissent. Video surfaced just after this video published, but a link is in the video showing that the teleprompter already had pre-approved results before the public vote was taken. Ron Paul's name and delegate totals were not allowed to be mentioned officially on the stage, even when he won the specific state.
The Republican Party has lost all hope, and the disrespect Paul supporters received will eventually be replied with "I told you so."
For sure. Ron Paul and the Tea Party have a lot in common, and I support both. What happened here was the Republican party elite shoving everyone else out of the way. The split in the Republican party just widened, because of the actions of RINOs who want to stay in power.
Its okay to admit you were wrong.
I’m not wrong, the concern is about what this does to Conservative’s future in the Republican party.
I quit sending money to the RINO party years ago.
keep your eyes full and have a happy Labor day. It was just an observation that most people don’t think about.
If hanging around with communists doesn’t make you wonder what he truly believes, then you are hopeless.
There is no reason under Heaven or on Earth for anyone to associate with communists.
That is exactly the same as the RINO sellouts being “bipartisan” with the liberals by selling us out to their agenda, the same behavior and thinking exactly.
And that is an amazingly weak defense of hanging around with communists.
There is no reason whatsoever to even give them face time anywhere.
Especially if one wants to call themself ‘Conservative’.
You DO realise this is a CONSERVATIVE website, right?
Your whiner post made the complaint that you thought this was a ‘hard right’ website, trollish wording if ever I saw it by the way.
Keep trolling m’boy, you’ll eventually get the attention you want.
thanks bd476. It’s appropriate that this topic showed up in the UFO/Aliens keyword. :’)
