You guys don't really understand this process.
That is the whole reason why they adjourned the meeting before conducting any business.
They knew Ron Paul supporters had the majority to take the delegates, change the party platform and nominate their own into the local GOP committee.
Ask yourself why the police was called to arrest the man that reconvened the meeting outside. He was attempting to nominate himself as the county GOP
chairman and had the support of not only Ron Paul supporters but supporters of the other candidates as well. All the people wanted at the convention
was a fairly executed process.
This is taking place all across the country.
The same thing happened in Clark County, Nevada (which has over 70% of the population of Nevada). Ron Paul supporters got the majority delegates,
changed the party platform and took all 14 executive committee positions.
If parliamentary procedure actually took place, Ron Paul supporters would've dominated that county convention in St. Charles, Missouri.
The Missouri state GOP has re-scheduled the county convention for a later date and they will not DARE play the same tricks again because it is a major
embarrassment to the state. They might try different tactics that are less blatant but those are easily overcome by a passionate majority with one
goal in mind.
