And again, it is of little solace. Ever since Bush Sr. I have been "predicting" that the marrionettes will not be getting what they think they will in electing another wolf. Every time I have been correct but not because I'm a great predictor. This ratio is only brought about by objectively studying the candidates and everything they have done in the past.

While many "news" agencies reported that the Ron Paul supporters created havoc and "disrupted" things in general. ALL of them failed to tell you why. And there have been a HOST of very good reasons why over the entire campaign season. The below piece shows just a minuscule sampling of what Paul and his supporters have had to deal with for the entire ride. Even Paul admits it was predictable. Paul's campaign "manager" just like the previous one did not do him any favors and bears further scrutiny.

RNC Disenfranchises Paul Delegates; Rigs Rules to Nominate Romney

Joe Wolverton, II

New American

Aug 29, 2012

Drowning out shouting Ron Paul supporters is not an easy thing to do. Republican delegates voting for Mitt Romney found this out Tuesday as Paul’s contingent chanted “Point of Order” and “Let Him Speak” as they witnessed the re-writing of the GOP rules, clearing the way for the unchallenged coronation of the now-official Republican nominee for president — Mitt Romney.

The RNC’s rule change effectively disenfranchised Republicans supporting anyone other than the Establishment’s man and left 10 of Maine’s 24 delegates locked out of the process, preventing them from casting votes for Ron Paul.

Railroaded and rejected, the unseated Maine delegates walked out of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, leaving the convention in the hands of the predetermined winner and his proxies.

“It’s a disgusting, disgusting display of a hostile takeover from the top down,” said Maine delegate Ashley Ryan, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times. “It’s an embarrassment,” she’s quoted as saying.

Maine wasn’t alone in expressing its displeasure and disgust at the RNC’s pro-Romney rule manipulation.

Wayne Terhune, chairman of the Nevada delegation, reported that his state joined at least four others in submitting to the secretary of the convention, Kim Reynolds, valid and timely documents nominating Ron Paul.

“We are excited to get Dr. Paul nominated,” Terhune said. “Congressman Paul’s message of limited, Constitutional government, sound foreign policy, and personal liberty needs to be heard on this convention floor.”

Minnesota delegate Gary Heyer confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that his state joined Nevada, Minnesota, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska, and the Virgin Islands in submitting the forms to Reynolds.

The Los Angeles Times also reported:

Gary Heyer, a delegate from Minnesota, confirmed that his state was among those submitting papers showing a majority of delegates favoring Paul. Their goal, he said, is simply “to get him into nomination, so everybody here has a choice. If they vote for Romney and he’s democratically elected, then he’s democratically elected. We just want a choice.”

Disregarding the nominating rule and the Ron Paul delegates’ adherence thereto, when the roll call was read only the votes for Mitt Romney were announced. The nomination of Ron Paul was ignored in open and hostile violation of the RNC’s rules governing the presidential nomination process. No explanation. No chance for appeal. No recourse.

According to RNC Rule 40(b) in effect until Tuesday’s revisions:

Each candidate for nomination for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States shall demonstrate the support of a plurality of the delegates from each of five (5) or more states, severally, prior to the presentation of the name of that candidate for nomination.

Ron Paul unquestionably qualified for nomination under this rule, but he was denied placement on the ballot — and an opportunity to address the convention on behalf of his nomination — in what amounts to a total takeover of the Republican Party by the RNC and Mitt Romney.

Additional rule changes all but guaranteed that in the future the RNC will not allow itself to be embarrassed by “grassroots” candidates.

Not only did the RNC rob Ron Paul of delegates he won fairly at the Maine state convention, it prevented any who follow in his footsteps from winning any delegates in the first place.

According to the revised Rule 16, every state must amend its nominating process to ensure that their delegations are bound to vote in accordance with the winner of the popular vote as cast at state caucuses or primaries.

Another newly adopted rule — Rule 12 — empowers the RNC to bend the rules to suit their needs at any time without having changes approved at the quadrennial convention. This unprecedented revision places the control of the GOP in the hands of the Establishment candidate without suffering the inconvenience of listening to dissenting voices.

Prior to the roll call that would formally confirm the nomination of Mitt Romney for president, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus announced the results of the voice vote on the accepting of state delegation credentials as Paul supporters chanted “Seat them now! Seat them now!”

A Reason magazine blog reports that “boos rained down on the floor,” but the wheels were in motion and nothing would slow their roll toward Romney’s nomination.

Having successfully rammed the unseating of the Maine delegation down the throats of party members, House Speaker John Boehner than called for a voice vote on the revised RNC rules that will govern the party’s nomination process in 2016.

Despite what many report as an equal volume of “ayes” and “nays,” the parliamentarian announced the acceptance of the rules. Fait accompli.

Dailypaul.com reported that the final delegate vote count was 2,061 for Mitt Romney; 190 for Ron Paul; nine for Rick Santorum; one for Buddy Roehmer; one for Jon Hunstman; one for Michele Bachmann; and 18 abstentions.

At least one delegate from each of the following states voted for Ron Paul: Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. The Virgin Islands cast one vote for Dr. Paul, as well.

Although the events at the Republican convention were reminiscent of the electoral practices of the Soviet Union, circa 1980, where premiers were routinely re-elected by 99.9 percent of voters, Ron Paul told Fox New’s Neil Cavuto that “we knew what to expect.”

At his “We are the Future” rally held at the Sun Dome on Sunday, Paul expressed the same opinion of the party’s predetermined presidential nomination.

“They’ve learned how to bend rules, break rules, and now they want to re-write the rules!” the icon of the liberty movement told the nearly 10,000 devotees gathered to hear him speak.

Finally, regarding the Romney-Ryan nomination, Ron Paul reaffirmed that he has “not endorsed the ticket,” adding “I endorse the principles I’ve been talking about for a long time.”

Sadly, in the wake of the RNC’s disregard and dismantling of party rules and disenfranchising of duly elected delegates, there seems to be little room in the Republican Party for Dr. Paul, his principles, or the millions of Americans who cherish them.

After an unrelenting attack for decades, Liberty and the Constitutional Rule of Law have left the building. I have sadly had to watch the failure of the "great experiment" for decades, but the acceleration of failure the last several years has been breathtaking. That great experiment was (yes, WAS), Can a man govern himself?

While the answer WAS yes, it was only because of a morally grounded people which was the only sort that was compatible with the most unique form of government ever recorded. As those types of brave folk do not exist in positions of "power" anymore, and are actively and viciously prevented from assuming these positions, the experiment has become an EPIC failure.

As I try to only bust on my "party" and the lemmings that populate it these days, I will say that you have become that which you have stated that you hate. Slowly and piece by piece you have adopted ALL of the socialist leanings that you previously stood against. Every one. You have no firm grounding and are easily "blown about by the wind". You have been slowly and carefully crafted to become what you have.

Not by happenstance however for it follows a Soviet prediction (and course of action) made many years ago. But NOT being students of history (and reality for that matter) you have become excellent "dancers".

I am guilty of Loving my country and its foundation too much. I'm one o them pesky ones that took my oath to "uphold and defend" too seriously. Well, Lord willing, no more. I will maintain the oath in my life and all that I do, but I no longer have a country or Constitution to defend. Pitty, I was and am pretty good defender, but also about 220 years out of place.

Lastly I will remind you of a question I asked repeatedly when a republican "regurgitator" told me that they "didn't agree with Ron Paul" on one issue or another. That question was "What part of the Constitution do YOU disagree with?" ALL have run away from this question, Rush, Lars, Bill, a HOST of others and YOU.

Guess the question hit to close to home.

In any event, my experiment has failed as well. Unity in love is too tall an order and too hard. As most are ruled and fueled by hate a mass starvation would occur if they stopped eating each other.

I will do my very best to done. I am very grateful to those who indeed read and didn't use the red hearing of faulting my prose.

Thanks for your time,

Bb

Well a special thanks to you Miss Mary Lou, for allowing me the latitude and space to try.

Never asked or considered is why would they try to hide it? It is the answering of this question and the revelation attendant to it that scares the P out of out of the rep. slave. Nearly everything I know for fact is freely available to an inquiring mind. Some isn't but most is and that "most" is more than enough to prove all that I have said.

I have watched and been very involved for quite some time. In the State of OR. when I ran for a house seat. the rep party much preferred to have the dem Kate Brown than me and made no bones about it. Why? Because I was not to be sent as a "law maker", but as a representative, responsive to my bosses, the electorate. I was not to be controlled by the party OR used as a tool to produce nearly three inches of law per by-anium. In fact it was know by the "party leaders" that I was going to Salem to tear down constructs that should not exist in the Legislature. And now, because the Rep party did NOT do its job all these years, Kate Brown runs much of the show. On the surface this makes little sense, yet this is the m. o. for the party nation wide.

Now knowing the demographics, I fully expected to not win in that district, and from the start I had a different goal in mind. What was most revealing to me however was how my "party" actively worked against having a Constitutionalist elected to office.

Looks like the "party" continues.....

Perhaps constantly calling people "marionettes" and "slaves" (yesterdays thread) is turning them off from reading your posts in the first place. I understand you're passionate about what you believe in and I admire that but asking people to be united in love when you've just called half of them lemmings is a little hard to swallow for some folk

Don't get me wrong...I know where you're coming from. I shudder at the "I don't care who the candidate is, I'm throwing my full support behind whoever gets the nomination" is about as lemming-like as it comes and I love the “They’ve learned how to bend rules, break rules, and now they want to re-write the rules!” comment because it couldn't be more true.

I'm sorry you feel so despondent
