That rule change at the GOP convention was more about the Ron Paul supporters going against who they were sent to represent to get Paul on the ticket. Don't believe me.. now he's stomping off with his toys demanding to be on the libratarian ticket.
There are those out there that are willing to subvert their own party's rules to get THEIR man on the ticket, not to follow the will of the people they represent. THAT is what is scary, ladies and gentlemen. The fact that it happened in the GOP is telling. 1) that there are MANY factions under the GOP umbrella, which is not necessarily a bad thing; 2) there are those that are watching what is being said and done and go to lengths to maintain "order", which is a double edge sword.
