Paul supporters frequently urge people to vote for Paul because of their consciences, "It's the right thing to do." An Iowa woman took that

Wadsley decided Thursday she couldn’t in good conscience vote for Romney — she had backed Ron Paul during the GOP primary — and resigned to
allow the Iowa GOP to choose someone else for that duty.
“They’ve never given Ron Paul a fair shot, and I’m disgusted with that,” Wadsley told the AP for the story that preceded her resignation.
“I’d like to show them how disgusted I am.”
Iowa GOP Chairman A.J. Spiker said in a statement Thursday that the state party’s central committee would begin the process of selecting a
replacement, essentially allowing the party to confirm a die-hard Romney supporter.

You know my opinion, but I admit it's just that. I really do want to hear from others, that's why I started this.
