How Romney and Our Republic Can Win (Part 1)

Ron Paul's focus on getting delegates is completely legal and ethical. What is UNETHICAL is local Republican leadership trying to shut out the Ron Paul supporters. They resort to every dirty trick in the book to do so. Now, there may be more supporters of Romney than there are of Paul. However, Paul's supporters are enthusiastic and dedicated. Romney's supporters are Romney supporters because they just figure it's his turn. Enthusiasm for Romney: ZERO. I would love to see Ron Paul get enough delegates, by sheer organization and grass roots ground game, to deny Romney the nomination.

Legal? Perhaps.

Ethical? Certainly not. When the voters of a state completely reject a candidate, and that candidate then hijacks the srate convention to obtain delegates he could not win at the ballot box, that violates the integety of the democratic process.

But it matters little. Romney has gathered such a lead in the primaries already held, and will increase it in the remaining primaries, that Paul's effort will be a futile as his legislative record. I would guess that he will be booed at the natioal convention before the majority walk out. Then, that will be the last we hear of Paul.

I would guess that if by some miricle Paul did get the nomination, Paul would lose in a landslide, as the stench would be to great for anyone to hol

Nice! The schizophrenic creepy, Alinskyite stalker - realizing the damage it's Paul-delegate panic is doing to it's Establishment leftist POV - has... REVERTED back to the classic "Paul doesn't matter" tactic. Seems it's heeded the natural progression of the Gandhi formula. Still quite the self-collapsing conundrum to wrestle with, though: If the popular Ron Paul indeed... "mattered little"... the spastic smearing of the doc... would be... quite unnecessary.

WinniePoo is really getting desperate now and really gearing up the name-calling and insults. Too bad he has no facts to offer in refutation, but that is the norm for him. That comes from living in a fantasy world all his own.

If Romney really has as much support as the popular voting indicates (the popular voting done by electronic voting machines that are easily hacked, mind you) then he should dominate the delegate elections by the exact same margin as he did in the general election. If he doesn't then you should ask yourself a couple of questions:
1) did Romney really win the popular vote or was there something else going on
2) maybe Romney's campaign is so unorganized that he just can't get that many people to show up?

Either way, Romney doesn't deserve to win if he can't even bring enough people to the delegate caucus to win fairly.

amen !! the establishment republicans will pull any dirty trick they can think of to exclude liberty candidates like dr. paul, so we have to sometimes use unconventional strategy to counter their corruption. we are playing by THEIR rules, so they better not complain about it.

It's not the Republican establishment that has rejected Ron Paul, it's the Republican base, because he comes across as a whaco.

Yeah! He keeps spouting those totally whacko ideas, doesn't he? You know the ideas I'm talking about: balanced budget, small government, honest money, staying out of pointless wars. I tell you--what a loon!

ron paul bases everything he says on the constitution and the principles of liberty as articulated by the founding fathers. if these ideas and principles are seen as being "whaco" in today's america, then we are as a nation in serious trouble !!
actually, when people accuse him of sounding crazy, i think it's just them repeating the sean hannity propaganda , so they think it's trendy to say the same things.

No, I'm talking about "we invited the 9/11 attack" and "We need to stay within our borders and stop all immigration" and other such nuttiness.

Please supply a link or proof of Ron Paul saying "we invited the 9/11 attack."

So now WinniePoo will play one of his silly little word games where he demands the exact words be used, when he knows that the words capture the spirit of Paul's claim.

Oooops. The quote is a lie and the insinuation is a lie. Ironically, the quote was pulled from an 08 debate (during the last election cycle that the leftist Establishment SUCCESSFULLY blacked Paul out), where Paul STOOD ALONE, LIKE A LION... and patiently and calmly explained to the world what BLOWBACK is. The unfortunate thing... is that his words from 08 are more poignant... mostly from the blood, misery and futility of our CONTINUED intervention since that debate.

Yes, WinniePoo is playing his little word games again of "if he didn't say those exact words, it is a lie." when that is the essence of Paul's position, and to deny that is the real lie. But hey, that's okay, Paul is just going to ignore the fact that the voters rejected him and try to hijack the convention. It is sort of like what happens with some of those South ASmerican dictators.....hmmmm.

Yes, Paul stood alone in 2008 bewcause nobody, or at leats very few, would vote for him, just as very few will vote for him in 2012. But that is okay, he is just going

That must be why Ron Paul is winning all the delegate contests where Romney supporters have the exact same chance of showing up.
I find it interesting that whenever there is electronic voting going on, Romney wins in a landslide. Whenever votes are counted in the open or on TV (like the Adelson caucus in Nevada) Ron Paul wins by a huge margin. In Nevada it was 183 Paul, 61 Romney. Funny how that works isn't it? The reason Ron Paul is winning all the delegate contests over Romney is that votes are counted in the open and it's impossible to CHEAT.

I'll say it - how could anyone think we DIDN'T invite the 9/11 attack? We're literally bombing civilians and occupying their lands in the middle east. If the shoe was on the other foot, say we got occupied by China, how long would you sit around and watch your neighbors get killed as "collateral damage" before you decided enough was enough and it was time to take the fight back to the enemy? I know it wouldn't take me very long...
Ron Paul said it perfectly - we need to mind our own business. And if we do so, all evidence shows that the attacks will end *immediately*. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1FDB569CCE42D23C

Fortunately in the last 4 years quite a few people have realized that Ron Paul was right the whole time. Most people recognize Guiliani for the idiot he is now. Saying the word "9/11" doesn't give you carte blanch to do whatever you want to the citizens of the united states.

... and thus, Obama the election.
Robert128 Wrote: May 08, 2012 8:06 PM
Considering Ron Paul polls higher against Obama than Romney does, I think it's the exact opposite. If we have the misfortune of a Romney nomination, we can look forward to 4 more years of Obama, because Romney has NO CHANCE against Obama. How anyone can think that the father of ObamaCare has a chance to beat Obama is beyond me.
With President Barack Obama's officially starting his campaign this Saturday, many are wondering whether the GOP front-runner and former Massachusetts governor, Mitt Romney, has a real chance at winning the general election. But I know a way he could pull it off, and my wife, Gena, even dreamed about it.

I said that I would vote for whichever candidate won the GOP nomination. As of this writing, it appears to be Romney. Truthfully, I believe that Mitt has the skills and organization to defeat Obama and stop his fundamental transformation of America. We all know what four more years of increased socialistic...
