According to Fox News' Carl Cameron, Ron Paul has now met the requirements for his name to be put up for the Republican nomination at the convention in Tampa, Florida.



Ron Paul Racks Up Delegates, Putting GOP Establishment On Edge

www.huffingtonpost.com...


Isn't this what they call a "brokered convention" and didn't one of the underdogs become POTUS about 40 years ago? (Sorry for my ignorance)

GOOD LUCK AMERICA!

"Paul is costing the state a lot of credibility," said Bob Haus, a GOP consultant who most recently headed up Texas Gov. Rick Perry's campaign in the state.


"It does not sound encouraging. The Paul people are in a position to control the delegates, and the result would be chaotic for the Republican Party of Iowa and bring it to a screeching halt, rendering it completely irrelevant to our efforts here," the Republican aide told The Huffington Post. "Nobody would rely on [the state party] for anything."

That's All that the only right wing MSM outlet has to say about it. Fox news and GOP cronies are ridiculous!!

Actually, it was more like 70 years ago. Watch the Rachel Maddow report in my post Here *wrong video, stand by*

Well, I cant find that video. But it was Warren G. Harding. He basically walked into the convention with the least number of delegates, then walked out with the nomination and went on to win the presidency.

Here is my post last week on Brokered Conventions

Thank you for posting this.

Man, that's the same guy that made the snide comment about Ron's eligibility in a debate.

That must have been a hard pill to swallow.

As a Delegate, I could tell you some things which would curl your hair about the process this year. Even though we have won many seats in the voting process, they were chosen in most cases by the GOP establishment that wants romney in for continuity of the take down of America. Many of the delegates chosen were chosen as poor chances and not the bright young minds who should have been chosen.

In case you did not understand, edit to say the National convention delegates. In our county, they chose the worst possible person to represent other than romney.

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Booooooooooooiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!

LEGGGGGGGGGGGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Not even the trolls and the subliminal Ron Paul bashers can annoy me today. This is great news. Lets just hope they don't take back their word out of no where and that brodcast just disappears.

The crazy thing is, if they get him in a debate with Obama, he WON'T LOSE. Which is why I'm surprised to see TPTB let him get this far; considering he's one of the biggest threats to the banks, the puppets, MIC, and the NWO.

It only becomes brokered if Romney does not get enough delegates voting for him in the first round. Although even then some states bind their delegates for multiple rounds of voting. Just looking at bound delegates Romney is well on his way to hitting the magic 50%+1 number and it is very unlikely he won't reach it. Considering that most unbound delegates are luminaries in the party it's very likely that the vast majority of these 126 votes will be going to Romney as well.

So now states apparently bind past the first vote.

It is amazing the new information that comes out of the peoples mouth each day who try to downplay Paul's chances. It is like, the information didn't exist yesterday, or it was just made up.

It's almost as if, Romney's number doesn't even matter, and it will be a brokered convention regardless due to the ability to abstain or vote present.

It's almost as if, people simply assume that just because Romney has these numbers, that these numbers that are under him automatically will support him.





Good news regardless.

And it's worldwide dude. A french article from TF1, the unofficial almost private TV channel of Sarkozy, released a paper about Republican Primaries this morning.

It basically says Gingrich's out.
Remain ROMNEY and paul. The capital letters are to illustrate how arranged was this "info".

"ROMNEY" quoted 15 times
"PAUL" quoted TWICE!

What about the evicted you said?? "GINGRICH" quoted 11 times!!!!
Greater noise is made about the looser than for the challenger. How blatant is that?

link (french resources)

To me, this crap article gives an extra clue about how MSNews is biased on a worldwide scale.
There has to be a global scheme as all (or nearly all) media point out the same infos and morally support the same people.

Just my 2 cents

How did FOX news announce this? I guess the owning corporations have let loose their leash on FOX for a little too long.

I would love to see a debate between Paul and Obama. It's gonna be like the infamous Watergate scandal debate between Frost and Nixon. Except Paul is Frost and Nixon is Obama. (By the way, anyone see the movie? Pretty good) I imagine a debate between Paul and Obama would go something like this...

Paul: We need to take away the government’s money power. The banking industry needs its welfare check ended. The dollar’s soundness depends on its being untied from the machine that can make an infinite number of copies of dollars and reduce their value to zero.

Obama: Well uh, the uhhh federal reserve, that you seem to be addressing is uh, I think vital, and uh I was told that, by the uh chairman of the organization that uhhh, the, decrease in the dollar value, was not the result of, erratic money printing by the uhh, federal reserve, but rather the fact that our uh citizen debt has exponentially been rising and uhh unaccounted for.

Yes, the same in Germany & The Netherlands. It is all Romney, Paul is rarely if at all mentioned. I was actually watching this election cycle and the different MSM sources in a number of western countries, and you see the bias is endemic throughout the entire western based MSM....

For example here are the rules for Oregon delegates:


Section B. Delegate Conduct at the Republican National Convention.
Candidates for delegate and alternate to the Republican National Convention must state which
Presidential Preference Primary candidate they favor, and will be listed as running for one of the delegate
positions assigned to that presidential candidate. Each person selected as a delegate or alternate shall sign
a pledge that he/she shall vote at the National Convention for the candidate for the President of the United
States he/she favors until the candidate is:
(1) nominated;
(2) receives less than 35% of the votes for nomination at the convention;
(3) releases the delegate from the pledge; or
(4) until two convention nominating ballots have been taken.

Source

As you can see Oregon delegates can be bound for the first two rounds. If I can find a link for the rules regarding delegates from Texas you'll see that they can potentially be bound for three rounds and are bound automatically bound for two rounds unless the candidate releases them.

I have been waiting on this to become a formal announcement. I am a state delegate in Iowa and we have taken over the GOP. I am waiting to find out if i am going to the National Convention. We have ll been told from day one that Ron Paul can't win. I convinced my precinct to vote for him anyway. We had to deal with an attempt by the GOP to steal the county away from us. We resisted and continued against the MSM propaganda. We took District and managed to take all the seats on the committees including the Central Committee, Nominating Committee, and the Committee for the planks. When people are committed and do their small part collectively we are unstoppable. The momentum is growing. We are this close to proving not only that we can win but are winning. No one can stop a movement whose time has come. The time is now and we will be victorious.

If nothing else, this election has exposed to many people just how absolutely ludicrous this 'election' process is. It isn't a voting process...it's a popularity contest that basically comes down to who does the best double-talk, behind-the-doors schemes to get the millions of dollars it takes to 'secure' the 'delegates'. It has nothing to do with a popular vote (its all rigged), it has nothing to do with who the people want, it has nothing to do with who is the best candidate for OUR country. Ultimately, the top 1% (ie banker, investment firms...can anyone say Romney's buds?) pull the strings and decide who THEY want in the top spot to keep their money flowing.

This has been a disgusting display of the greed that runs this country.

In the middle of all this crap is the ONE person that seems to best represent the PEOPLE. What has been done to him? Well just what you would expect from a socialist community. In spite of everything, he remains. In the face of all the lies and games Ron Paul has acted like a true Patriot, seemingly sure in his belief that there is enough of us left to assure that in the end the best man will still be standing.

I, for one, hope to hell we don't let him and ourselves down. Ron Paul is what this country needs at this time in history. It seems we have come to an ephiphany and if the puppet masters get their way we'll continue our downard spiral until our last remaining rights are stripped away.

BOUND delegates? That is an oxymoron. What is the point to VOTING if you are BOUND to vote a certain way? Like everything else in this process, it makes NO sense.

I love this, but it scares me too. If this momentum continues, they will try to stop it somehow. I hope the advancing Ron Paul delegates and commitee members have superior knowledge of Robert's Law and the Constitution, and can override the coming corruption attempts.

Keep up the good work. Stay strong, and know you are doing the right thing.
