sorry, i havent read the whole thread.


ATS is about denying ignorance. That means not coming into a thread with no clue at all about anything, then going off-topic about "rupal" because you think that's cute, and not offering anything for or against the topic at hand.

That's not even remotely accurate.

Math aside, many of the "pledged" Romney delegates are Ron Paul supporters, and on a second round of votes the picture is very different.

I'd also like to add; If it didn't matter, then why is the GOP committing voter fraud in every state? Why is the media hiding true facts!

The answer:

BECAUSE IT DOES MATTER!

The establishment has been shaken and the rotten fruit will soon fall to the ground.

I love RP, and that he's 'in to win' and, if nothing else, I want the swell of support for him to rock the nation. Be nice if it would wake folks up to the media lies and the party manipulations too!

If Ron Paul can't win any states now, how is he ever going to win in November?

Many in the Republican Party know that if Paul wins the nomination they have at least a chance to take on Obama. But if they nominate Romney not only do they have to contend with Obama but also internal strife against the RINO.. ultimately, it would be impossible for Romney to win simply due to the number of people in the Republican Party who may either vote 3rd party or write in Paul to spite Romney.

Guys?

What kind of voting system is this? Someone gets not the majority of peoples votes yet gets to be candidate b/c of what?



Uh, the Presidential election is never, ever, ever decided by the popular vote. The Presidential elections are determined by the electorial vote. What's the difference?

I'll believe it when I see it....

..not sure why you say those numbers aren't even remotely accurate though. Maybe you're just wishing on a star???

Let's go out on a crazy limb and suggest that the two parties are actually cooperating. Do you think the republican party would commit suicide if it came down to it to shut out Ron Paul? Or would they back him?

Oh the esteemed GOP, with such a revolutionary history themselves. Shall we find out just what they are worth?

You're correct. This is very similar to the presidential electoral college.

But the electoral college system is flawed. That's been argued about for decades past.

Direct democracy ... one person, one vote ... and goodbye to Mister Paul.

Over here in Texas a few of my friends and I got certified as delegates to the state convention. The GOP here in Texas really wasn't as active as you may think. Many of the districts were "over run" by college students from around the area and became certified delegates. Once at the state convention they will be trying to get a plurality of Ron Paul delegates nominated and confirmed by the committees that oversee delegate selection.

The Ron Paul campaign is all about getting into the second and third round of voting at the convention. I know the major networks would love to show that as it is pure entertainment. All in all, I see this happening. However unlike others I feel that a victory would be as little as a speaking slot at the convention for him. This would legitimize the groups standing in the party once and for all.

I have heard good things about Ron Paul, mainly in this forum. Although few planks of his platforms appeal to me,
the idea of not catering to the military industrial complex in this country seems to be a good one. However,
after the disruption at the Alaska Republican convention, where his supporters roughly and rudely hijacked the
process, I am no fan. These gestapo-like tactics are being used all over the country.

Know them by their fruits, people.

He's already won states so why is that even a question?
