Reno has been in the news this week for a series of unusual seismological events. Hundreds of Quakes over the last few days.

There was a separate shakeup downtown, but this was politically related.

The Nevada State GOP convention was held at the Peppermill Casino, south of downtown. It was a soap opera on a soapbox.

Ron Paul supporters showed up in droves, to support their candidate.
Who, if you read the local Media, is a FORMER Presidential Candidate.
This is not true, he is a current candidate. He may not be delegate rich, but he said he would continue spreading his message, as long as he had support. He does, and bless his heart, he is still speaking at colleges and other venues..Drawing crowds in the thousands. He came to Reno a day Early to speak at one of the local High Schools.

First on the agenda was to force a change in the preset list of delegates, to allow a vote for ALL state delegates to have a chance to support the candidate of their choice at the national convention. Paul supporters won that vote. (thats what a convention is for..To choose delegates.)
This was a legal political maneuver.
the voting began, and it became clear that Paul was about to take ALL the remaining Delegates.

This upset McCain supporters enough that most of them eventually walked out. Including the Chairman of the NV GOP, Bob Beers.
He claimed that the rules change placed the Convention into overtime.
This was not true, Beers and McCain supporters used stall tactics to prevent any voting from happening. They purposely ran down the clock.

The lease for the Room at the Hotel was finite, so he CANCELLED the event. This was BS, because a 3 hour extension was easily obtained. So Bob Beers is a liar. There was plenty of time to vote.

Since Beers the chairman left. It was decided that an election should be held to install a new chairman. ALL the Sudden the McCain people showed up again. But there were not enough present for a quorum..Lucky for Beers, the liar.

In the end, no votes were taken..However, Paul gave a rousing speech. To an excited audience. Romney was also a speaker, but he didn't sound awfully thrilled to support McCain. But he's playing the Neo-con game. At least Paul is trying to change things.

Now the event is rescheduled..But nobody knows when, or where. A common tactic used against Paul. They want to move it to Las Vegas, to try again.
It doesn't look like state party rules will allow for that. The venue can't change. I'm still checking on that.

It's still a mess..And I can update as I discover more. Things are changing rapidly.

I am a Delegate here in Texas. Texas is a bound delegate state, which means at the national convention should I be elected to be a delegate there, I would be bound to cast my vote for the winner of the Texas primaries.

According to the rules however, I must only cast my vote for John McCain, the rules state that if I choose not to vote, then the number of won delegates John McCain has will be reduced because I abstained from voting.

This is the only way to get rid of the democrat known as John McCain. We have spread the message to the delegates already elected to go to St. Paul in September to abstain from voting if they are bound delegates.

Of course in the State of Nevada where this is all going on, the delegates are not bound. So in the first round of voting, those who support Ron Paul will be casting a vote for the good Dr. Paul.

As it stands now, John McCain has won just under 900 delegates in "bound states". We are confident that the remaining delegates who are un bound will vote for the true republican which is Ron Paul.

This is a historic time in out political system, in where the republican party is being forced back on track.

John McCain is a Neoconservative. If you don;t know what that is, please look it up. To summarize and point out the worst part of the neocon agenda, to put it simply. Neocons want the United States to prevent any other country from advancing to power that may threaten the US.

This is a plan of World domination, as well as a track to one world government.

I've been reading a bit about Texas.
Is it true that many Paul supporters had to go in as Stealth delegates?
I'm hearing that this is happening in other states, that you have to feign support for the "front runner" in order to be recognized.

Good job on becoming a delegate By the way!
Make your vote count!..or not..

Yes, they are looking for us. We had to rent a hall the night before convention and practice. The next morning when we showed up we had to remove our ron paul signs from our cars and pretend to support McWar.

They had us fill out applications and asked us on the form if we would support Mcnasty. We all wrote yes.

We saw spies walking around listening to our private conversations looking to see if we were Ron Paul supporters.

It was truly in line with Nazi Germany at the convention. The Neocons have control and we are in the position both in numbers as well as financially to take back the party. The neocons do not follow the rules and are getting caught breaking the law as well as Roberts rules of order.

It would not surprise me if they invalidated the entire delegation at St. Paul and moved to nominate Mc100 as the winner with out a vote. This would result in a riot and I could possibly see some of the more enthusiastic Ron Paul supporters loosing their temper and doing something bad.

So please be calm and play by the rules if you are a delegate. We can win but only if we show our strength in a non violent manner.

Thanks for saying that.
Some people would say that Ron Paul supporters were lying, to get into the conventions. Technically I suppose this is true. But my question to them is.

Why is the system SO messed up, and Neo-Controlled, that it has come to this.
What is wrong with trying to return the party to something more palatable, and less taxing?

Here is an AP version of the events.

There is also a photo to accompany the story. Take a look at the caption to the photo..they call Paul a "FORMER" candidate. He's not a former candidate. He is currently RUNNING for office.

If only a few million more people would be on board with RP... then something could be done...

I I know RP is still in the running, but he basicly is mathmaticly emiminated...

Ron continuing to spread his message isnt the same thing as him being an 08 candidate. Paul supporters should be grateful he is even still a member of the Republican party . In other parts of the world if a sitting MP broke ranks with there party they wouldn't be selected to run again come election time .

Holy Cow, SpaceDoubt:

I'll admit that I'm not very well versed in the politiacl realm, I served in the US Army, took a couple of Political Science classes in college, then concentrated my efforts on a successful family/carreer.

But I have to say that Ron Paul's campaign has opened my eyes to the way things have become.

I consider myself a conservative in the sense that Ron Paul is a conservative.

And it's wonderful to see a Super Moderator using my favorite quote from The Revolution: A Manifesto as their signature.

Keep spreading the word.

By the way...Do we have to play by the current government's rules? Because the way I see it, there isn't a two party system anymore.

I have a thread called "The Way to Start the Revolution" that I'd like to be reviewed by people who are more well-versed than I in politics and government.

Please let me know what you think of it.
