I do not agree with Ron Paul, but if he played by the rules his delegates should be respected. They were not because after over a decade of warning about the dangers of the Fed Reserve and bankers in general, Ron Paul finally is making inroads in the GOP. If you are a banker would you allow that? No way. IMHO phone calls were made from Wall Street and proponent of the Fed Reserve to GOP and the Ron Paul foothold in the GOP is to be destroyed. Problem is GOP chose to side with these bankers who help implode our economy with liar loan mortgage notes sold to unsuspecting investors as AAA investments. Fed Reserve who used the bailouts to cover bad bank speculations and refuse to be audited or have Congressional oversight. Trillions of dollars in the hands of private bankers (that is what the Fed Reserve is, it is not gov) of whom psychologists have profiled and determined 20 percent of them exhibit sociopath behavior. Can we say fraud and abuse? The GOP died for them??? Ron Paul supporters are justified in their anger. They stayed home and the GOP was on their own. Gov Palin whom many sophisticates hate was right, she advised Rommney after he won the nomination to respect and reach out to the Ron Paul supporters. Guess his advisers who are beholden to Wall Street advised him otherwise.
These guys came in with both barrels blazing publicly stating they were only going to fund and support approved candidates.
Contributions dropped to nearly zero but they're still there. They are totally dysfunctional.
