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.
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.
