FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Press Contact: Wayne Terhune Delegation Chair, Nevada
Six States Nominate Congressman Ron Paul for President at the Republican National Convention
TAMPA, August 28, 2012-- Supporters of Congressman Ron Paul have collected the necessary signatures to nominate him for President of the United States at the RNC. The current rules state that a plurality of delegates from five states are required to nominate a candidate for President. The Secretary of the Convention, Kim Reynolds, was presented with the forms over an hour before the call for nominations.
We are excited to get Dr. Paul nominated, said Wayne Terhune, Nevada Delegation Chairman. Congressman Pauls message of limited, Constitutional government, sound foreign policy, and personal liberty needs to be heard on this convention floor.
The list of nominating states and territories are: Nevada, Minnesota, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska, and the Virgin Islands.
Good going clown face. No wonder they wanted to change the rules.
No kidding. This sucks. :(
He needs to return to the Mothership......
Ron Paul support from NC
the branch Paulinians are at it again. I hope Rand’s supporters don’t mimic this.
Now how does this work since General Romney has already been nominated?
And MSM will cover that instead of anything else.
Ron Paul supporters are delusional. The guy will never be elected president and supporting him only helps Obama. This years Ross Perot?
He is a jerk.
I’ll bet Barry the Kenyan Guy finds Ronnie the Peacenik’s antics very amusing and “entertaining”. Ronnie wants to be the next Ross Perot.
This is not just about Ron Paul, this is about a group of people who are actively trying to destroy the GOP. You will a path of destruction and Democratic wins wherever they’ve been known to slither.
Could you give me more info about that?? Who is behind RP and what rat wins have they gained?? Just want to know for ammo against a friend who is conservative but has drunk the RP kool-aid.
Note that he didn’t actually win all those places. And it is hard to imagine how he could have a plurality of Nevada delegates, given that Mitt Romney won 20 of the 28 delegates. Sadly, though Gingrich beat Paul for 2nd place, he didn’t manage to get ANY delegates.
Of course, what happened was that Paul managed to get his supporters elected as “Romney” delegates. And while they were bound to vote for Romney in the 1st round, they are claiming that they still have the right to nominate Ron Paul, because that isn’t a “vote”.
This is part of what caused the battles today, as Romney looked to replace delegates that were bound to him but were actually opposed to him. It’s an absurd way to pick delegates, to allow delegates to lie at caucuses and then attack their own supposed candidate at the nominating convention.
I’m not happy about Romney one bit, but Ron Small IS NOT the answer.
Beck was able to show that many of the groups funding Ron Paul could be connected to Soros.
This assinine move does more to destroy thier agenda than anything ever accomplished.
Instead of getting inside and eating the thing out from the inside, the GD dumb assholes pull a stunt like this.
RuPaul is providing cover for the rule changes.
I LOVE YOUR POSTED PICTURE of Ron Paul...he is a NUT!
I couldn't BELIEVE that some US delegates actually voted for him...Thank God, Mitt Romney WON the NOMINATION!
What kind of moron would continue to back this senile doofus after his unfortunate and preposterous comments about Muslims and 9/11? His “rally” yesterday did not seem to have any connection to the GOP. All hail Julian Assange and Bradley Manning! Muslims are wonderful and only attack us because we are imperialist creeps! Woo hoo, go Ron Paul! /s
This is part of the Ron Paul delusional cult. The “news” source is a Ron Paul website. That’s where his teeny bopper followers get all their news.
The GOP’s version of the “crazy uncle from the attic”.
Yawning, big time!!!
There is or was a theory that a small state would be desireable to take over, so,
New Hampshire went from reliably Republican to a toss up state
Maryland was turned into a political moonscape
If you see squabbles over rule changes
If you see weird litmus tests
If you see party switching invasion forces brought in for caucuses and such...
I stole it. :)
this group needs to be ‘shut down’ they are indeed trouble makers...
by the way how many delegate votes did he get??
he is an embarasment..
“Beck was able to show that many of the groups funding Ron Paul could be connected to Soros.”
I’m not sure why, since Soros has stated that he would be happy with either Obama or Romney.
yep...looks just like one of his followers..you should post that pic. to this post...
RON PAUL STRUCK OUT THREE TIMES WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO WAKE THIS FOOL UP..
RAND...TIME TO COMMITE YOU DAD TO A NURSING HOME..HE IS READY...
Out of curiosity, how much damage do you suppose Alan Greenspan did to GOP election prospects (among other things)?
Yawning, big time!!!
There’s just something goofy about that guy.
“What kind of moron would continue to back this senile doofus after his unfortunate and preposterous comments...”
The delegates from my home state of Minnesota are mostly Paultards. Santorum won the non-binding straw poll at our caucuses back in February but the delegates were elected at the congressional district conventions and at the state convention. 33 of ‘em voted for Paul, 1 for Santorum and 6 for Romney.
This IS embarrassing. But nothing surprises me anymore. After all, this is the state that has barfed out Walter Mondale, Jesse Ventura and Al Franken into the public realm.
That's romney's gig.
What would a Romneybot care about LYING! Hysterical!
EXACTLY!! You usually get what most don't!!
“Can’t forget Governor Antidepressant!”
Yes, that’s right.
Our spoiled trust-fund governor...
BlackAdderess, I referenced both of your posts, because they made sense when read together.
Excerpted from the above linked KLEW-TV article:
"...For all the furor surrounding legislative races, it pales in comparison to some unusual local Republican contests.
In one, Shaun Winkler, a Ku Klux Klan imperial wizard, faces incumbent Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler in the race to be the top law enforcement officer in Idaho's rural north. Winkler, 33, held a cross-burning near Priest River last week.
< Snip >
"But Paul loyalists including Ryan Davidson have said they're targeting obscure local GOP precinct committee leader races, in hopes of sending friendly delegates to the state Republican Convention in Twin Falls in June to reverse Romney's caucus win.
Debbie Field, a former GOP state legislator and Romney organizer, is flabbergasted. She points out that many Paul backers wanted the caucus, thinking it could help the libertarian-leaning Texas congressman's chances.
"It's amazing," Field said. "When they don't get the results they want, they change the rules. It's a strange way of functioning."
< Snip >
Democrats who are holding their own nominating contests Tuesday are observing the machinations from the other side of the aisle not without a little relish..."
This supports my opinion that the rules change was not a GOP, Rove or Romney power grab, as much as it is a means of slowing down some of those who wear conservative Republican garments, namely the Ron Paul supporters, liberals and others, who are making great efforts to insure another Obama Presidency.
Hey, did anyone see Mia Love’s speech today? A black female conservative.
A star is born.
I expect to see more of her in the news in the future!
Heres her speech today:
You see how the chair is from Nevada?
We warned for months this was going to happen because we saw right here in Reno what they were going to pull and people here thought it was going to be Palin.
it was Paul the whole time.
What kind of man wears Armor Hot Dogs, or fake eyebrows?
You approve of Paulites lying I see.
Say what you will about Ron Paul but he is not a nutcase, he is perhaps one of the most sane men in that room.
That being said I don’t agree with Ron’s forign policy, although as events move forward it seems more and more likely that Ron Paul’s foreign policy will be a necessity for a time.
Like it or not Under Obama the Federal army, and air-force is becoming more and more a domestic threat to our liberty. Invariably as this continues the same forces meant to protect us from foreign threats will themselves pose the greatest threat. We may have little choice but to see their abolition. At which point our only defenses will be in our State Militia in a climate of distrust against Washington which will render them unsuitable for anything but the defense of theses united States from foreign invasion.
Simply put that leaves us with Ron Paul’s foreign policy as Washington’s only practical option.
