RNC Disenfranchises Paul Delegates; Rigs Rules to Nominate 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.

webmaster commentary:






All Republicans should boycott the
November elections, and hand the White House and Congress firmly to the
Democrats. This will send a message to the self-declared Fuhrers in the
GOP that we the Republican voters refuse to accept or support
candidates not of our own choosing. Either the Republican party learns
respect for Republican voters, or it should vanish and make way for a
new party more responsive to the people. This is, as far as I can tell,
the only non-violent option we have left.

    Irish, why are you so anti establishment? You know the two party system is set up for the people so they can choose which lies they prefer. Who cares if they bend the rules a little? It's for our benefit isn't it? Let's be honest here. Ron Paul is old and he's a loon. It doesn't matter if he is the only one speaking about our Constitution or liberty or stop the wars, or end the corrupt Federal Reserve. The Constitution was written when men cared about truth and honor. Those things are gone now. Just like our America.

    Ron Paul is the man. The others belong in the can.

    That really sucks how these people treat a man like Ron Paul. It shows their true colors.

    I ran into this article this morning: According to an article at the link below, 'part of Maine's delegation walked out in protest over the decision to strip away half of the Ron Paul's delegates from the state.'

    I am going to laugh so hard when Romney loses. People who think Obama is the worst president in history are so ignorant. Try Abraham Lincoln (killed 600,000 fellow citizens). Woodrow Wilson (started the Federal Reserve bank, got us into a war that had nothing to do with us, got the ball rolling on the UN). Franklin Roosevelt (prolonged a tiny depression ten times longer than it should have gone, got the ball rolling on nuclear warfare, illegally detained an entire ethnic group). Its Obama's rhetoric that scares them, not really his actions. Why are people so short sighted? Is it because they have been brainwashed into worshipping these other tyrants? Well, Obama pales in comparison to them, its almost a joke listening to their ABO hysteria. I predict that if Romney wins, he'll be just as bad on almost every issue, and worse on spending and invading countries that have nothing to do with us. Put that in your pipe and smoke it all you knee jerk "conservatives". You can't even pick a guy that can win.

    This is your lying, cheating, thieving corrupt Republicons. Take a good look and wake up. The whole of DC is scripted to make the illusion of the 2 party system. Watch that and wake up, or at least dump those psychopaths.

    If the republican people had brains they would. But they don't so they won't. They will accept that they have no voice at all anymore. They will accept the NDAA and patriot act. I used to call the two parties DUMB & DUMBER, that has changed. They are both DUMBER.

    wHAT PART OF HE LOST IS ESCAPING YOU?

    THAT S SAD

    Disenfranchised? hahahahahahahahaha....When you have nothing to say that the majority wants to hear you don't get the coverage and thats where Paul is. Paul supporters are a bunch of whiners that were trying to do the same thing they claimed was being done to them and you LOST. Now if you want to nominate Paul to be over the FED Reserve I probably would get behind that as I do agree with some of his monetary policies about the FED but that doesnt qualify him to be president.......30 years in congress, hundreds of pieces of legislation authored and offered.....1 passed......hardly what anyone could call a leader (SAME AS OBAMA VOTING PRESENT AND RIDING ON SOMEONE ELSES COATTAILS). Guessing your favorite Paul platform is the legalization of pot which will never happen because the tobacco and pharma. industries are going to fight it tooth and nail because of the potential loss of revenue for them.

We have been telling you losers for so long that there really wasn't 2 partes in DC but do you retards listen or even pay attention? NO, too dumb check it out for yourselves. You are the problem in this country, NOT OBAMA. All the braindead that let DC get away with all that they have done. Why did none of your precious republicons do nothing about the usurper? Because they are involved. DUH!
