So unless the GOP breaks the rules again, Ron Paul is going to be nominated, will get his 15 minute speech and Romney is not going to be a happy camper. He always gets out-shined by Ron Paul and knows it. That is why he and his campaign must resort to violence and fraud to stop Ron Paul.



3 FACTS ABOUT A CANDIDATES NAME BEING PLACED INTO NOMINATION AT THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION!

I have been in touch with a member of the RNC Rules committee over the past 4 days and have been able to confirm a few FACTS about the nomination process.

1. For a candidate's name to be placed into nomination at the RNC you DO need a plurality of delegates from 5 states.

2. Binding and Non-binding distinctions DO NOT have an affect on nominating a candidates name. If "binding" is allowable by rule, (it is not) it would only pertain to a vote taken on the nomination, not the process of placing a name in nomination.

3. The Ron Paul campaign HAS the majority of delegates in the following 5 states: Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisana, Iowa. He MAY have the majority in Massachusetts and Colorado

I keep hearing people talk about splitting the vote. Romney will take us there slower than Obama. I keep telling her that the propaganda worked on her then. I'm voting Ron Paul!

Nebraska being the last state Ron Paul needed for nomination was just a really bad game of telephone. One person started a rumor, the news media picked it up and it just snowballed from there to being straight up misinformation.

Why do people keep saying the horse is dead when it's quite clearly walking around and swatting at flies with its tail?

Ben Swann is my hero! I have heard that he is a very smart guy. The TV station he works for, WXIX, is the only TV station left not directly affiliated with FOX or its major network. This is how he can get away with reporting the truth consistently, and he is a true patriot for doing so. I wish all journalists were like this guy because you can cut through all the propaganda the media tells us, you know, like how they WANTED Ron Paul to lose from the beginning. And people jumped right on that bandwagon. Lucky me, I don't own a TV set, and didn't when Ron Paul announced his presidential run for 2012. No brainwash here... my mind is my own.

So when is Ron Paul off to Israel to get the required stamp of approval?

Oh! He's not? Not a chance of him getting to be Prez then!


Maybe he could hitch a lift with Mitt who is off there shortly.

Actually, they're resting quite comfortably in reality while RP supporters continue their wide-eyed, high-hopes charade to get him elected.

After all, it's nearly impossible to take RP supporters on ATS seriously based on the way they act towards non-supporters or skeptics.

Post something of some value once in a while and people might take you more seriously.

Among those that grace the list released by Romney’s camp today are former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, former CIA Director Michael Hayden and ex-Blackwater exec Cofer Black. All three appointees have played crucial, and often highly critiqued, rolls within the administrations of George W Bush.

Chertoff, America’s second Secretary of Homeland Security, was appointed to that title by George W Bush in 2005, and during that tenure played a pivotal role in putting together the USA PATRIOT Act. He was also sharply criticized for the Department of Homeland Security’s failure to prepare for Hurricane Katrina under his watch and for his dismissal of several pieces of environmental protection legislation in his proposal to construct a massive, 700-mile fence along the United States’ border with Mexico.

General Michael Hayden served as both the director of the national Security Agency and as director of the CIA. Most famously, however, Hayden is perhaps remembered best for his insistence that warrantless wiretapping in the aftermath of the September 11 terror attacks was necessary for the security of the United States. Before Congress, Hayden defended his case that the White House needed to override the legislative branch in order to conduct domestic spying on suspected terrorists.

Joining Hayden is a fellow CIA cohort, Joseph Cofer Black, who in addition to serving as the State department’s coordinator of counter-terrorism was also chairman of Total Intelligence Solutions, an offshoot of Blackwater. Under his command, Blackwater offered private contractors to go overseas to protect the US military to much criticism. With the CIA, Black was responsible for programs that dealt with the interrogation and questionably-legal detention of suspected terror suspects.

Despite a resume that some will say is on pay with a prison rap sheet, Romney today says that he is grateful for the team he has on his side. In an announcement today, Romney said, “I am deeply honored to have the counsel of this extraordinary group of diplomats, experts, and statesmen.”

“Their remarkable experience, wisdom, and depth of knowledge will be critical to ensuring that the 21st century is another American Century,” said Romney.

That's a pretty broad brush your painting with. Just because people are fired up for their candidate doesn't make them any less credible. Do you say the same for those who were all over the place when Obama was running for President? I don't act hostile towards others who support another candidate, when they try and debate facts I simply argue my facts and the beliefs of my candidate.

So, you guys still believe in "the system"? Why do you so desperately need a leader? I don't need a president, a king or queen to think for me and represent me. They cannot even begin to imagine the kind of world regular folks live in. Work, bills, kids, daily stress... How can they even relate? Most of them are born with a silver or golden spoon in their mouth.

We don't need new presidents. We need a new way of thinking and perception.

No. The system sucks, but it is much more practical to change an existing system than to level everything and start from scratch.


We don't need new presidents. We need a new way of thinking and perception.


How about a president who has a "new" way of thinking and perceiving who wants to radically alter this unjust system and has consistently demonstrated his willingness to take the high road?

I agree that the people have to change their thinking and perception, and that is exactly what is reflected by the Paulites' willingness to support a candidate in the face of overwhelming adversity. It is also demonstrated by the original Tea Partiers, the original Occupiers and even the early Obama supporters. People are craving justice, and like it or not that is symbolized by a change in leadership.

Perhaps the new leaders will not deliver, but the people's demands will remain. Tunisia is on the cusp of another regime change because their new leaders didn't live up to the people's expectations.
