Skip to comments.RNC Sham 2012
Posted on 08/30/2012 11:48:58 PM PDT by W.C.S.
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."
Why are you citing something from Russia Today?
Getting a little homesick, Komrade?
Just too much reefer in those six states, or what exactly??
What many fail to see is that the rule change had little to do with Ron Paul. Conservatives from MANY states were outraged over how the rules were changed, especially after they were promised the day before that they wouldn’t be.
Paul knew he had lost, but after the rule change, we have no idea which candidate will be the victim the next time. States lost their rights to vote how they wish, from now on, they’ll vote how they’re told, and that’s just not right.
The convention was a time for unity. Like it or not Romney won. Now is not the time for the Paultards childish distractions.
I respectfully submit this story as proof there is no difference between the two parties.
Romney was ordained through fraud, and malfeasance from the GOPe from jump street.
there is no choice, there is no difference.
enjoy your non-choice sheep.
Scream that from the top of every building ! Let’s eradicate the Marxists first.
It is called the Republican National Convention for a reason.
Ron Paul has 2 first names...that right there should exclude him from nomination. His 15 minutes of fame were up many years ago. Please tell him that, ok?
“States lost their rights to vote how they wish, from now on, theyll vote how theyre told, and thats just not right.”
The only thing that lost their ‘right to vote’ was the RP factions who attempted to conduct a coup. The people told the delegates how they were to vote. The RNC did the right thing and ensured the spoiled RP factions did as they were told by the people they represent. And you call that “just not right”?
hope you gave a healthy donation for the bandwidth used on the double posting of those hefty pictures
Why am I not surprised. The OP seems to hate Republicans more than they dislike the left and are fine using the left to their own ends. Just like Fraud Paul.
Oh wait never mind.. our resident 5th Party vanity candidate also posted this video last night as well.
And what have you done for the FReepathons lately?
Bd476 works tirelessly with her beautiful graphics to drum up donations, and most members of the FReepathon Team are also cash contributors as well.
I’ve seen larger graphics posted all over the site without a word of protest.
Lighten up, please.
That statement alone, back in MARCH, before your current whine fest thread tells me all I need to know about you WCS.
You have no idea what is Conservative or not.
Your post history makes for an interesting read.
WCS, do you haver ANY clue at all why we laugh at Paulistinians?
The "Collective Checkup" part is one clue...
Hey boss, ping to WCS pimping RonPaul and Collective Checkup the communist group, and he whined back in March about how Paul doesn't get any respect... DannyH loved to whine about getting respect too.
Thanks for the concern.
Didn’t see any such ‘concern’ when the Paulistinians were spamming RonPaul and Reagan pics everywhere they could, as often as they could, incessantly and despite it being correctly pointed out that RonPaul hated Reagan.
Apparently he didn’t hate Reagan enough to not try to attach his taint to a man greater than himself.
Ron is David Duke in ol geezer skin.
Oh, and speaking of Duke: in one of my many webtravels some time ago, I came across a reference to Duke’s boyfriend. May be true or not.
” and the disrespect Paul supporters received “
Do you demand respect?
And will you expect more respect in the morning?
Did you do a tea party, and take an online test to tell you your political beliefs?
