GOP delegates sue to be free from Romney
World Net Daily ^ | June 16, 2012 | Drew Zahn

Posted on 06/15/2012 10:58:25 PM PDT by CaptainKrunch

Over 120 delegates to the Republican National Convention have joined a lawsuit against the GOP arguing they have been illegally coerced into choosing Mitt Romney for the party’s presidential nominee and demanding they be “unbound” to vote for another candidate instead.

The federal lawsuit, filed this week in U.S. District Court in California by mostly supporters of Ron Paul, demands the delegates be freed to “vote their conscience” for presidential nominee at the party’s August national convention in Tampa, Fla., rather than being “bound” to vote for a certain candidate, as many state party bylaws require, based on the primary elections and other delegate selection procedures.

<snip>

“The Republican National Committee and its chairman have been aiding the Governor Romney campaign for at least six months,” the lawsuit asserts. “The RNC and its chairman, defendant Reince Priebus, have … combined with a particular candidate with all of the aid the RNC can possibly, but improperly give … to obstruct, intimidate and harass delegates from voting their conscience.”

Specifically, the lawsuit charges Republican officials and operatives have used threats of violence, certified unlawful slates of delegates, demanded affidavits of loyalty to Romney under penalty of perjury and have even altered ballot results to make sure the national convention is stacked with delegates who will vote for Romney.

Romney's no Reagan but he's no Obama. There's only one Communist in Chief and he HATES this country with a passion.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Obama despises this country; Mitt doesn't care one way or the other, he only cares about himself.

Do the math.

Political parties have a right to set their rules as they see fit. Are we going to get the Feds to pick our candidates now?

"Political parties have a right to set their rules as they see fit. Are we going to get the Feds to pick our candidates now?"

Ehh.  The RNC was breaking it's own rules in various instances in order to push Romney.  It's all moot now.  I'm not obsessing over it.  I thought it was pretty much obvious to everyone that the RNC was pushing Romney from the beginning.

Paul is a nut.

Romney is a soft socialist.

I'll vote for either over obama.

And if Paul breaks the GOPe machine, I'll cheer that.

But Paul is a nut. Truther nut.

OK. Writing that made me stop short. I loath truthers. Despise. As in have been willing to go to prison to beat down (scum at issue backed down).

I seriously HATE our options...

Paul also wears fake eyebrows. What kind of person wears fake eyebrows?

His domestic policy is 100% spot on. His foreign policy is suicidal. What an enigma.

Yup, Paul is a nut.  He makes no sense ideologically.  He's Mr. "Constitution", yet he's an apologist for America's enemies.   The very enemies who wish to destroy our Constitution.  WTF?

And like you, I despise troothers.  To me, troothers are cowards who cannot face the actual truth.  And in their cowardice, they transform into collaborators with the enemy.  Despicable.

Very unhappy about our options.  Obama is such a radical freak we could have gotten Jerry Fallwell elected president.  Think of someone so socially conservative that it would make the average "independent" cringe in horror, and they would have gladly voted for him in order to get rid of Obama.  The most ghastly left-wing President in history actually presented the opportunity of a generation for conservatives.  Gone.  Wasted.  Deferred to the cynical agenda of the GOP establishment.

Under Obama we may as well rephrase that with hopes we can be a state of Mexico or some other nation. Sad but true.

Paul would be good in a cabinet position where he gets to deal with financial issues at home, as well as going after people for doing bad things. As long as he has no say in foreign policy, or even have much ability to sign his name to get things done, then his nuttiness should be contained.

“we need to support the paulbots like never before... THEY ARE USEFUL IDIOTS!!”

You are right to say the Paulbots are useful idiots but this has nothing to do with supporting conservatives and the Paulbots do not deserve support. The Ron Paul and his group have lied and cheated throughout the process. They have tried to overturn the wishes of voters and steal delegates through slimy, dishonest tactics.

The Paulbots will NEVER support an honest, principled conservatives. They have been working to help Romney in the primaries. They have been working to help Obama from the beginning.

“The DNC and the GOP are really one party with 2 heads. They’re both bought and paid for by the privately owned central bankers. These RP delegates can put up a fight, but the Bilderberg types will never allow them to win as all the judges are under their control.”

Your score for this post is 100/100 for the clear statement of harsh truths. You will probably be called an Obot or Paulbot for not playing the game and supporting the distinction without a difference like a good party peon should.
