God Bless the ministry of Dr. Ron Paul, if his views are ignored then the party loses. This is basically what Reagan said & more recently Sen. Demint said it specifically. This is more than one man & now the real story is the RNC/Romney legal adviser passing bylaws that will keep out the voice of the Tea Party/Freedomworks/Palin, etc. People should not be so short sighted to not realize what is at stake, and that is future GOP elections being run by the elite. If people slam Paul & don't see the bigger picture, we all lose.
Before the GOP 2012 Convention was gaveled into session on Tuesday, Rep. Ron Paul made a surprise appearance on the floor. His fervent supporters exploded, raining applause upon the former presidential candidate. Cheers of "Ron Paul!" and "President Paul!" followed him - as did a fairly large contingent of the media.

Paul, clad in a lei, greeted his supporters and dealt with media as he made his way across the floor. Even after the initial outburst, there were small chants of support during his appearance.

Here's Paul, possibly befuddled by the lei around...
