I just found the article and it's now 1:47pm. I'm looking for more information but wanted to get this out there quick.


Ron Paul is expected to make a surprise appearance on the floor of the Republican National Convention Tuesday at about 1:45 p.m., sources close to the GOP presidential candidate just told me.

His presence is apparently designed as a way to show solidarity with his several hundred delegates, many of whom are frustrated and seething because they are being outvoted and, in their minds, shunted aside at the Republican National Convention.

Note the flag they give their "alliance" to... It represents the money changers, the elites and not of the republic under the constitution, the 'gold' fringe is not authentic.

I am trying to catch this on direct tv and am stuck on fox news, they shamelessly talk over the entire pledge of allegiance and the National anthem.

They will NOT shhut UP!!! I have to get up and change the channel, does anyone know where it is being covered without all the bs?

Shouts of ‘Let Him Speak’ Greet Paul at Convention




Representative Ron Paul was on the convention floor here Tuesday afternoon when chants broke out calling on organizers to “let him speak.”

Mr. Paul, the Texas libertarian and leader of some of the most disgruntled delegates, walked onto the floor at 2 p.m., just ahead of the color guard. A smattering of supporters applauded. A group in the rafters also shouted “Liberty” in addition to “Let him speak.” But the former rival to Mr. Romney did nothing to egg them on.

The demands by Mr. Paul’s supporters came after he had decided not to speak at the Republican National Convention after the Romney campaign insisted on approving his remarks beforehand. They also required that he endorse Mr. Romney.

The chants also came as the Romney campaign was still trying to put down a grass-roots rebellion against its effort to change arcane party rules that, activists say, would protect “establishment’’ presidential candidates from insurgent challengers.

It is hilarious that they are not making the roll call a prime time event.

That should be Romney's moment...and they are going to have it at 5:20pm on the first day of the convention...very quietly and discrete.

Too funny.

Is it me or does it look like there was more people at the Ron Paul Rally than the convention??? Really sad to watch, Romney doesn't stand a chance.....

Paul supporters might show Romney their backs




Before Ron Paul himself appeared on the convention floor Tuesday, some of his supporters were already hoping to shake things up. Many of them feel shoved to the periphery and threatened by proposed rule changes that would give party bosses more control over how delegates are selected.

“It’s a railroad. They’re trying to stage a coup and make the grassroots completely irrelevant for the future,” said alternate delegate and Paul supporter Jeremy Blosser, 36, of Fort Worth, Texas. A lot of people, he said, “are upset about these credentials shenanigans.”

Attempts at a compromise are underway, but not everyone is on board with the deal. “The timing of these changes is problematic. We’re about to walk into the convention and the rules are changing,” said Dennis Marburger, a Michigan delegate who supports Paul. “That’s just not right,” said alternate delegate Pete Mackin of Marquette, Mich. “We’re not supposed to be the party of top down. We’re supposed to be the party of bottom up. Liberty. Freedom.”

Darrell Johnson, an alternate delegate from Michigan, said he’d heard rumors that some delegates will turn their back on Romney when he speaks.

Bob Buckhorn is a democrat, lol. Funny to hear the reaction when he came out.

If it doesn't matter to you, then depart. It's as simple as that.

Ron Paul was not expected at this convention at all, sans a video montage that was going to happen. The Paul camp stated that he is here to show solidarity with his delegates. It's even covered in the OP.

I assume with the latest power grab rule change by the Romney Campaign/RNC he decided he needed to show his supporters that he is still there even facing the adversity he does.

Ron Paul said he wasn't seeking the nomination. He never told his delegates not to vote for him.

Made me cry. I am so sad about how the crowd cheers and yet the media still does all they can to thwart the truth.
