The Republican Party is a private organization...being a member is the same as being a member of a country club, a book club, or a priavte gym.
In this case, the Republican Party has told it's members that they are going to allow the members to nominate the person they are going to put
forward to represent their club in the election. This person will get the public backing of the party, it will get funding from the party, and it is
expected that all members of the party will support this person.
Now with what happened with Ron Paul is not illegal...it is just the club being dishonest to it's members. There were no freedoms lost, not rights
taken away from them...they simply just got screwed over by the people who are in control of the club.
There is only one recourse members of a club can take if they don't like how it is being run...you leave the club.
If you are part of a book club that says they will vote on what book will be read next, but in reality the club is controlled by 3-4 people. When it
is time to vote on a book to read, if one of those 3-4 people have a book they really realy want to read, and they say that in the interest of the
book club, they are going to read this book even if the majority of the members don't want to. So the 3-4 people change the rules...they make the
rules so that their votes count more...and you are left with a situation that you as a member still have a vote...as long as you agree with the 3-4
controlling people. So you then have a choice...you either stay in the book club because you have always been in that book club, or you leave.
In the case of Ron Paul supporters...staying with my book club analogy...they had a book that they thought everyone should read...they thought it was
the best book ever...but it was in a genre that this book club isn't very interested in. Now, these people have their own book club, but it is very
small compared to the book club they are trying to get into...and if they can get that large book club to read that book...their book will become very
popular. So the Ron Paul supporters looked over their rules and found some loopholes and attempted to exploit those in order to get their book on the
top of the list. The people in control of this large book club see what they are doing...and they aren't going to let their book club be hijacked by
these outsiders...so they change the rules. They through these members a few scraps to keep them in the book club, because numbers are power, but
mostly they just laugh at them.
A simple question to the Ron Paul supporters should be...why in the hell do you want to stay in that book club???
