Apparently Ron Paul has won 22/25 delegates in Nevada. This is amazing considering the fraud we witnessed earlier in the year with the rigged caucus, see here:




It's still going to be an uphill battle against all odds, but things continue to get interesting in a very good way.

MOD NOTE, from the second source

But while Paul loyalists will make up the majority of the Nevada delegation, Republican rules require the first vote at the national convention to reflect the results of the Feb. 4 caucus, which Romney easily won.

Is this true? It's awesome if it is. The fix has been in against the good doctor from the start and Romney is one dirty dealing old style politician. Does anybody have the actual delegate numbers that they can post? On the internet it looks like Sen.Paul is winning but on TV they make it look like Romney has already won.

Just confirmed that RP supporters will NOT unbind.

There fore in round 1 it is 20 to Romney 8 to Paul.

In round 2, it is 22 Paul 6 Romney

That is pretty much all I can say in this situation. This is amazing news. In spite of the threats from the GOP and the tactics they used, it still ends up this way.

I wonder if the GOP is going to make good on their threat and somehow find a way to ban Nevada from the convention. Methinks now, and they were doing nothing but venting hot air out of their arses.

I still don't see anything on CNN about it (no suprise
). They have no problem breaking news in a milisecond if it's about a celebrity or establishment canidate, but I'm pretty sure this will fly under the radar.

I just heard from somebody present at the Nevada convention that, though they were unsuccessful in trying to unbind, it's within their rights to ABSTAIN from the first ballot, and all Ron Paul supporting delegates have agreed to do so

Ron paul will bring the kind of change Obama was talking about when he said "Yes we can" before he was proved to be a fraud just like all the others on Israel's pay list.

The USA, well the public are in financial # whilst the elite have never had it so good so unless you want to avoid WWIII being fought for Israel and becoming hungry then you know who to vote for and do note the election is not all about what side you stand on when it comes to abortions but is about the farmers and the sheep wanting a fair standard of living without being killed or having blood all over their hands.

And why would they do that?

Unless it's that they are required to vote for Romney in first round. (most likely depending on state rules)

For clarity:

Ron Paul won 22 of 25 delegates, but Romney has a vote of 20-8 in the first round of voting at Tampa due to binding. In the second rouns all 22 of the Paul delegates can vote for Paul.

The word from the Conference is that an RNC lawyer attended the conference this morning and following that an official word came down from the Paul camp to tell the delegates NOT to put forward a motion to unbind. The motion never came up so it did not fail as such.

The delegates are still trying to understand what was said behind closed doors between the RNC lawyer and the Paul campaign.

As it stands Romney keeps his 20-8 in round 1. The win for Paul today in Nevada only comes into effect in round 2.

Can somebody quickly list all of RP's state delegate victories and how many out of how many?

Incorrect. Those delegates can vote for Paul in round 1.

Yeah it was debunked by an Anti Paul shill on another posting. But I'm not sure who to trust. The guy in the video, or an anti paul shill.

Anybody have list of the states Paul has won? With delegate count from each state?

The RNC lawyer was there to threaten the Ron Paul camp from unbinding the delegates. If the state convention unbinds the delegates, the RNC would rule to unseat all the delegates from the convention. This would not be good for Ron Paul.

The strategy is abstention in the first round. Abstentions have been used in the past. 14 delegates at the RNC in 2008 abstained from voting for McCain. Over 200 supporters of Teddy Roosevelt abstained from voting for Taft in 1912. A bunch of Reagan supporters bound to Gerald Ford in 1976 were willing to abstain, but didnt do so because it wouldn't have made a difference. Ford had the votes he needed.

So YES, abstention is an option. And the 20+ delegates in Nevada who support Ron Paul but are bound to Romney will abstain, making it harder for Romney to meet his quota in round one voting at the Tampa convention.

This is an excellent strategy. The Ron Paul think tank knows exactly what it is doing.

I see - first it was 'Paul has not won a state', now it's 'Paul has not won a Primary'... oh dear...

you sound like you are reaching a little.

Round 2 means a Ron Paul landslide.

I think you might be very disappointed come August - the Ron Paul party is way ahead of your thinking.
