To be on the GOP ballot Aug. 27, 2012 in Tampa and get a 15-minute speaking slot, a candidate must have won the plurality (majority) of delegates in at least 5 states. Well, Ron Paul did win the plurality of delegates in 5 states, enough to be eligible for the nomination and a 15-minute speaking slot at the GOP convention.

The states he won are Louisiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Maine and Nevada. Then Ron Paul went on to win the plurality in Massachusetts, Romney's home state and half the delegates in Oregon. Dr. Ron Paul also has around 500 delegates who support him. The exact number of delegates that Romney and Paul have is still a mystery but should be clarified at the convention.

Later in the article it covers 4 of the more commonly known reason why Paul may be elected for nomination by the party. Unfortunately, time is running out because it's this Sunday but I figured with a few more weeks I bet Romney and Ryan would both embarrass themselves out of contender position.

If it's legit. Let the people speak.

OK, let's start slow here. I remember watching the Iowa caucus, and seeing sanitorum declared the winner.

Isn't this the first GOP caucus, the one where they say whoever wins Iowa, wins the nod?

But here you are saying RP won. What gives?

well you can come in 2nd or 3rd
and still get the most delegates out of the non binding states.
he was saying that you need 5 states winning the most delegates
to speak at convention not the popular vote.

The same website just made an article proclaiming in its title that Ron Paul and his supporters are up to "shenanigans" and in the first paragraph they state how the RNC is trying to stop his own supporters from nominating him.

TAMPA, Fla. -- A Republican Party procedural committee on Wednesday moved to ensure that supporters of Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) would be unable to nominate the congressman from the floor of the GOP convention next week, but ultimately backed away from the measure.

Apparently, Paul supporters are trying to...

disrupt the carefully scripted program for the four-day convention next week

by supporting their preferred candidate.

It does go on to say some only partially biased stuff though, lol. Of course for some reason no article on Ron Paul is complete without a few keywords in it from an irrelevant paragraph about something nobody remembers or cares about:

And people said we were extremists and racists and we could never be incorporated into the party.

You know... just in case someone happens to google something.

Remember people are still asking "Who is Ron Paul?" Now these are educated blue collar workers who have been focused on life, economy and work since the primaries, they use only MSM for their information. What I do not get is how people can make a decision based on the twaddle that both obama and romney spew rather than concrete plans for the future. They are both cheerleaders.
