Paul is finished. Frankly, I'm not very enthused by these other guys either. Santorum is a pompous twit and Romney is the mega flip-flopper and
proto-Obama. The whole Republican field, including Paul, is a major disappointment.
I would argue with the rest of your quote but I feel it would be sort of hypocritical of me since I have posted mostly pro-Paul links. I only know
Ron Paul supporters who were in attendance at the caucus so it's hard to find any Romney posts about it. I'll do some checking to see what I can
find. But the media is lying when they say Ron Paul supporters caused the problem. Dokes violated several rules and will probably be in some trouble
for what he did. For instance, he can't nominate Parliamentary nor the Credentials Committee. That is for the permanent chairman to do. He also
should not have ignored the crowd when they nominated Stafford and were shouting, "Division" and, "Point of Order." Those are Roberts Rules of
Order and should have been followed. Dokes, clearly, is to blame for what happened.
Anyway, as to the quote I chose to respond to more specifically -
Ron Paul is far from finished. While it may seem so because he isn't winning the states, he is winning the delegates. His supporters are guilty of
doing one thing and that is winning the delegate seats. We knew that it would be hard to win the states because of the shenanigans that took place in
2008. We were prepared this time. We stick around after the caucuses and vote for Paul supporters. We attend the local conventions and learn the
rules. We abide by them. (despite what some may think) It isn't our fault that the other candidates supporters aren't as passionate about learning
these rules. So they refer to it as 'hijacking" or "stealing" the seats. We are simply doing exactly as we should.
We expect this will go to a brokered convention. No one will win the first round, which will then move to the 2nd.. thus freeing all of the bound
delegates to vote for who they like. This is where our game plan will see fruition. Ron Paul's supporters, now free, will vote for him. (We are
hopeful at least)
Even CNN and Fox News have said recently that Ron Paul is in 2nd place with delegates. So don't say he is finished. He is far from finished. And as
you see here, the People are done being ran over. We are fighting back and I for one am glad to see it.
