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.

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.

No, no they don't.

The reason they are bound to Mitt is because the voters of their state voted for Mitt, and they are bound by their state party rules to represent those voters, not their own wishes.

Ron Paul's asperger army has always hated the Democratic process because when it's open and transparent, they lose. They lose every time. They only manage to get ahead when there are few people looking and they can out-nerd their opponents on rules or technicalities.

That's what this is about; they are angry that the Republican primary voters, whom they have nothing but contempt for since they exist outside their narrow clique, are dictating *gasp* who is the nominee and are turning to the courts.

Here's the true demonstration of hypocrisy: if this is what Ron Paul really thinks should be done, why doesn't he release all his bound delegates (what few he has)?

Why don't we just suspend the election, just give it to Obama, make Mexico the 51st state, outlaw traditional marriage, unilaterally disarm, and give up all sovereignty to the U.N.

Would that make the Paulbots happy?

It will never happen. The last 4 years has really opened my eyes. We have a total Mafia Government run by 2 crime families (Gop and Dnc) who in turn are run by the Central Bankers (House of Rothchild and House of Rockerfeller). They control everything, including the judges so you can’t win in court. Romney will be the nominee, to be the next Front Man in the White House.

We are at the precipice: either total Tyranny wins or the Tree of Liberty gets water with blood..........LOTS OF BLOOD.

Vote Mittens, and you’ll just get different schmucks to fill those positions. Obomney already has ObamaCare and RomneyCare propagandists in mind. Maybe amnesty Rubio will be the VP too, or some other rat.

Romney=Obama2?

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