Republican officials seemed to make Paul's supporters magically disappear during Wednesday night's roll call vote, in which the GOP convention officially nominated John McCain as the party's presidential candidate.
During the hour-and-a-half voting procedure, convention Secretary Jean Inman recorded each state's votes. Even though several states cast a portion of their votes for Ron Paul (among them Alaska, Oregon, Washington and West Virginia), none of those votes were repeated aloud by the secretary, and therefore they were not confirmed by the chair.
According to the Oklahoman newspaper, two delegates from Oklahoma also cast their ballots for Paul, but the microphone was cut off before their votes could be recorded.

The name Ron Paul is like some bad, evil, terrifying word amongst these neo cons. They think that by simply removing all mention of him and not repeating his name that he and his message will just somehow go away or diappear.
The frustration must be immense, to have defamed and slandered a man in such a way, to have made him virtually invisible in the media, to have banned him from the presidential debates, and the conspiracy to bury him still does no good!!!
I would be angry too if I did everything within my power to politically destroy a man and it did no good. Somehow still he always manages to find a way to show up at the worst times and ruin their little party
It's ok though, you can't silence truth. The Bush clan and the cronyism days are numbered. The American people know what they have done to our country, and before long this crooked and cock eyed brand of government will be nothing more than a bad memory and a footnote in history books that reads : Worst president ever

Thank you for posting this DD!!!
At least at the DNC convention they put Hillary's name up there with Obama and counted delegates. I mentioned this on another thread. But at the RNC Ron Paul was listed as "OTHER"
Is this illegal? Can't some lawyers file an appeal due to an Illegal process?
It is no wonder that we saw delegates being escorted out of the RNC by secret service, they were probably complaining that theirvotes were not being counted.
All I can say is this is disgusting!!! The public needs to be aware of it and this needs more coverage!! I hope there Dr. Pauls message next week has something to do with this!!
In swing-state Colorado, the Republican Secretary of State conducted the biggest purge of voters in history, dumping a fifth of all registrations. Guess their color. In swing-state Florida, the state is refusing to accept about 85,000 new registrations from voter drives - overwhelming Black voters.
In swing state New Mexico, HALF of the Democrats of Mora, a dirt poor and overwhelmingly Hispanic county, found their registrations disappeared this year, courtesy of a Republican voting contractor.
In swing states Ohio and Nevada, new federal law is knocking out tens of thousands of voters who lost their homes to foreclosure.
