I think one thing to remember here is that political parties are private organizations. Whomever has self-chosen themselves to be leaders based on
funding or seniority or whatever can legally do whatever they want. If Ron Paul and his supporters don't like it, they should leave the party and run
as an independant, not as members of the Independant party but as a real independant.
The biggest problem with yesterday's events was that the temporary chairman, Eugene Dokes, didn't
follow the rules. Not rules that were made
up but rules that are established by
the GOP. Robert's Rules of Order are suppose to be used in these events. He was making up his rules as he
went basically. Ignoring the cries for 'Division' and 'Point of Order.'
So it's not that the Ron Paul (or Romney), supporters weren't following the GOP rules, it's that the temporary chairman and the chairman Dokes
selected, weren't following the GOP rules.
