The Republican National Convention is quickly approaching (August 26th). For over the past year, avid Ron Paul supporters have won delegate spots in various state conventions across the country. Through this hard-work, Ron Paul will officially be allowed to be nominated for the nominee of the Republican Party.



For the past three days, Ben Swann (Fox19 Cincinnati) has been in contact with a Republican Rules Committee member. In order for a candidate to be elected for the Republican Party nomination, the candidate must have a plurality in five or more states. If by rule, binding and non-binding policies are applied to delegates, it would still not affect the process of voting for placement of a candidate's name into the potential nominee ballot. Presidential hopeful Ron Paul does have a plurality in five or more states (Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisiana, and Iowa). This means that Ron Paul will be eligible for nomination on August 26th in Tampa Bay.

So does this mean he is guaranteed to get his 15 minute speech as well?

If they recognize him as getting the majority in 5 or more states, then yes....he will get his 15 minutes.

Hmm. How interesting. I thought Ron Paul was a "Libertarian." Nope. Guess not. Still a Republican (which people should realize by the R after his name). If he had the courage of his convictions (and was not using the generic "Libertarian" label that people from all over the political spectrum claim) he would drop the R and put an I after his name and truly be a "Libertarian."

Yea great, then we can have a 3 party system instead! We can really split America up into many smaller factions then. Then maybe we can get things done.

Unfortunately with the way it is now a 3rd party candidate has no chance in hell of winning. The media is to politically bias to give an Independent a fair chance. Ron could have run Independent but he would have gotten even less publicity than he does now.

Better than having the two parties having a monopoly on the elections. What's so wrong with a multiple (at least 3) party system? At least then everyone can be equally represented.

If he does win his 15 minutes then I'm betting it will be the most intellectual 15 minutes spoken at that event...and without a teleprompter too.

Except he stands for what the Republican party USED to stand for. Many of his ideals anyway.

Its not his fault that both the Republican party and the Democratic party have both adapted to a progressive belief.

We should do away with all the parties anyway. To back one is a sign of idiocy.

Either you follow the Constitution or you dont.

Only ONE person does. He can call himself whatever he wants in my book. A true statesman, he is.

Well that's why people need to FIGHT for other parties instead of having this defeatist attitude of "Well only Dems and Repubs can win." That's such apathetic b.s.

Personally I'd like to see equal representation for the Libertarians (if they could ever set up a concrete platform), the Greens, the Socialists, hell even the Tea Party. Instead of these groups having to either back one of the major parties or just basically remain politically obscure.

The GOP and the Dems are both Progressive? No offense but


Sorry but the GOP has gone hard right, especially since the Tea Party corrupted them, and the Dems have gone more to the center.

As I watched the first Knight fight the dragon, his sword would not penetrate the monsters scales.
This happened with the next few all with the same result.
My time came and I jumped straight into the beasts jaw and slid down his gullet to the stomach.
There I found no scales only soft flesh, I tore and shredded and pierced until the beast died.
I then stepped out of his lifeless jaw unscathed.
Get what I'm getting at?

It is a tragedy that too many of us lose heart at the first mention of a rumor, what ever happened to strong people?
Some things are just too big to fight.

You really need to do some research the d's and r's have put up roadblocks o make sure no one can do a third party bid,,, it's expensive,, time consuming and hurdle after hurdle

let's see if gary johnson will even get into the debates,,, i doubt it


the debate commisions are bought,,, state commisioners are bought

it ain't as easy as you make it to be

oh just run third party

ron paul's been there done that in 1988 and saw why it wouldn't work,,, hence why he has an r after his name

sorry about caplocks,,, just noticed it was on,,, to lazy to retype

This is an interesting development and doesn't really surprise me. The part that bothers me is this:


The Ron Paul Revolution is planning on amassing 100,000+ supporters to Tampa in order to celebrate Paul's 30+ year career in American politics. However, the Republican National Committee senses pressure from the Paul supporters. The RNC has attempted to block access in order to make the convention as exclusive as possible.

Ben Swann conducted an interview with members of the RNC Rules Committee and they did answer the questions with the previous information. However, due to the RNC being a private organization they are not subject to following by their "rules" or "statements." Whether the RNC abides by their statements, we will find out this August.


I wonder what kind of underhanded double cross they will try to pull when the time comes.

I think you may have that a little backwards. I remember when the Tea Party was forming, Republicans would get booed off the stage when they tried to speak. Then, the Republicans had a stroke of genius. They started having Republican rallies, and called them Tea Party rallies.

You've got to admit, it was a brilliant adaptation of law enforcement's agent provocatuer strategy. Pretend to be the enemy, and then discredit them. The Democrats are trying to associate themselves with the OWS movement. That way they can stick a wedge between the Tea Party and OWS, who should be on the same side.

False flags, agent provocatuers, divide and conquer, is it just me or is the NWO playbook getting a little stale and predictable? Well, I guess if a strategy works, why change it?

Republican is a party, Libertarian is a political ideology. They have nothing to do with each other. You can be a Republican liberal, the two have nothing at all to do with each other. Libertarians make up a good chunk of the Republican party.

It doesn't matter what he calls himself, what matters is what he stands for. You shouldn't be concerned with what he calls himself. What we should be concerned about is his message of local government and less war. He could be democrat, republican, green, independent or whatever and I couldn't care less as he will still believe in the same thing.

Yes it would be great if America had more political parties, but he's doing a great job with what he's got in front of him.

RON PAUL'S BEEN THERE DONE THAT IN 1988 AND SAW WHY IT WOULDN'T WORK,,, HENCE WHY HE HAS AN R AFTER HIS NAME
Exactly... and as the poster above me stated, we should be listening to his message and what he stands for, rather than looking at the label next to his name... that is just a diversion and way for the system to cause division and conflict where there really is no reason to rely so heavily on the status-quo definitions and beliefs associated with each party. Anyone who has looked into the history of Ron Paul and has listened to his interviews and speeches from years ago will know exactly where he stands. He has said time and time again it doesn't matter which party gets the seat, the same old big government super spenders will be elected. He has explained in detail that the whole two party system is merely an illusion, two wings of the same bird, and that many things simply wont change despite who gets elected and what party they are aligned with.

He has given heavy criticism to both parties countless times, and often when listening to his old speeches it's impossible to tell if he really prefers one party over the other. But obviously he must feel the Republican party is more aligned with his beliefs, and he has spent a lot of time in congress and he has had a lot of time to see how members from each party will vote. So obviously, in order to give him self a reasonable chance at making the nomination, he decided to align himself with the party which he agreed with the most... now who can really blame him for that when he has already tried to take other routes but figured out they don't work. Even still, he has had a monumentally hard time receiving the recognition and air-time he deserves, the task has still been extraordinary difficult as it is... so you people bickering about his Republican status need to grow the hell up and see the bigger picture for once.

The general populace isn't quite finished taking their medicine as doled out by the MSM and TPTB. To actually think that this is a democratic situation is a joke. Two parties with cookie cutter puppets saying the same damn things, towing the same damn line for a cowardly bunch of behind the scenes war mongering capitalistic military complexians. The whole sham is like a giant hologram that is starting to degrade and fall apart.

Paul can't sell out the Republican party because he represents traditional republican views from 2 hundred years ago. Its the Neo repubs that should form a new party, since they are light years away from genuine republican views.

As honest and sincere as Paul is, it's highly doubtful the fat cats will sit back and watch Paul dismantle their profiteering racket.

Paul is however planting "peach pits" throughout the nation. Hopefully it will be a case where TPTB start dieing a death of a thousand razors or in this case 300 million razors.

I find it difficult to believe so many are duped into believing this political process is legit in any way.

They made this mistake years ago when they underestimated Ventura as governor. Remember how the CIA grilled him in how he ran his campaign and won. Paul would be considered a similar threat. They would have many contingencies to deal with him if he was poised to gain any true momentum.

Good luck with that.
