WE ARE LITERALLY WINNING THIS THING.
Ron Paul SWEPT THE CLARK COUNTY CONVENTION TODAY. (Biggest county in Nevada!@)
Are you completely delusional to the way the system works? Nevada, being a caucus state delegates their delegates differently than a primary state.
In Nevada, the numbers were far from favor in terms of Ron Paul. Just because he had overwhelming support in a county -- a county in which he lost
because support does not equal those who actually voted -- does not mean they win.
It is the main reason that we spread the concept of Democracy to its thinnest possible levels. So that large counties and states do not dictate the
outcome of such elections.
Edit to Add: Since you brought up Nevada let us analyze their numbers. Statewide, Romney received 50.0% of the delegate vote. Paul came in at a
modest 19%. Just because someone wins a county, doesn't mean they are the favorite nor winner. Thank goodness for a Republican style voting system!
Majority should not rule!
