What is ridiculous is you denying the official GOP rules that are places directly in front of you.
This is how it would work...One person calls to suspend the rules and nominate by Acclamation...they need somone to second it...which many
Romney supporters will...and then they will vote by Acclamation.
Bold emphasis placed by me.
Now considering there is no mention of acclamation in the official rulebook - then you are correct - they WOULD have to suspend the rules. And I
don't give a damn how the DNC is run and how they conducted business, I care about the official rules that are placed in front of us here and now and
that currently still stand for this convention.
Let me make this perfectly clear to you and everyone else.
To call for acclamation, you need to suspend the rules.
To suspend the rules, as stated on the GOP official website rules, AGAIN:
RULE NO. 32 Suspension of Rules A motion to suspend the rules shall always be in order, but only when made by authority of a majority of the
delegates from any state and seconded by a majority of the delegates from each of five (5) or more other states severally.
They won't follow the rules if they honestly think Ron Paul can cause the mischief people are talking about.
If they don't follow the rules they will be breaking the law and could quite possibly be facing charges of voter fraud among other things.
And even if they did...do you honestly think Romney doesn't have 5 states.
Does anyone KNOW if Romney has 5 states? No... not that I am aware of. I KNOW that Ron Paul has the majority of delegates in at least 3 states, but in
states that have "bound" delegates - it is honestly impossible to tell what Romney has considering such candidates have to keep of face support for
Romney, regardless of if they are indeed Ron Paul supporters, many of which are confirmed to be.
But consider this - the truth has finally come out the past two weeks as Ron Paul nabbed the majority of delegates in 3 or 4 states, and he stated the
same message he stated during the earlier runs. He claims that he snagged a good bit if not the majority in most of the other contests prior as well.
He didn't lie about the latest states, what reason do we have to believe that he was lying about those before?
With Romney the only thing you have to go on is faith - faith that his delegates will not abstain, faith that he actually HAS enough supports to break
the rules and go against Ron Paul because OK face it - with all your excuses if Romney does not have enough support to break the rules, and if those
bound delegates can abstain from voting - you have nothing left to fire with because Ron Paul wins this election whether you, the RNC, or anyone else
likes it or not.
