Why is this a ridiculous notion?
Well, let's see... has this Acclamation vote ever happened in the past short of hearing role call vote?
You honestly think, that with millions of people watching across the United States, the Republican Party would commit suicide by completely bypassing
the process it has become known for and instead "choosing" a candidate in the face of over a 1000 people who would be against such a decision
standing directly in front of them?
And should they not allow the nays to be heard and go ahead with it... what then? What do you suppose happen in the next 10-15 minutes of live
television that is showing the conference as a swarm of angry delegates realize that they and they states and their people were just screwed out of
any voice whatsoever... do you think that they would simply stand by and take it?
I'm not sure how you envisioned Ron Paul supporters up until this point, but they certainly aren't people who would simply accept such a ridiculous
notion without question and move on, and trust me, that hall would be filled with anything BUT cheers. You would have an all out riot on your
Take your fantasies elsewhere. Should acclamation be called for, it can just as well be denied by majority vote as well, just as all rules in the
convention. You would do well to study up.
