You must have me confused with someone else, as I’m no Romney fan. I won’t vote for him, and if the Paul supporters think this undermining of the will of the voters is ok, then there’s no way in heck I’d vote for him, either.

How is Ron Paul undermining the will of the voters? All the candidates are following the exact same caucus rules. The votes in the caucus meeting determine the number of delegates, not the straw poll.

All last year we kept hearing how worthless the straw polls were that Ron Paul kept winning, that they weren't actual caucuses. Now that he's getting delegates in the caucus system, by the same rules as everyone else, he's "undermining the will of the voters". It's hilarious how the goal post keeps moving for Ron Paul alone... maybe the GOP should just have an open primary nationwide, to demonstrate the true will of the voters. But then Ron Paul would do well, as he has in open primaries, and the GOPers would clamor for closed primaries, as people have already done on this site.

The bottom line is: whatever Ron Paul does is bad and the rules should be changed to whatever will shut Ron Paul out of the process.
