Ron Paul Gains Unstoppable Momentum in Battle for GOP Delegates

  • I took a month hiatus from following Ron Paul due to some personal matters and what a difference!! People are finally officially reporting what has been known for months now… that Ron Paul is actually the leading candidate to face Mitto in the end…

    there is no other choice for the US… I don’t understand these people bitching about abortion policy when they should be worried about the other 99.999999% of their lives which are being ruined by all the criminals in the US government…


  • Again I agree, legal matters such as that infringing on individual constitutional rights are matters that belong in the Judicial branch… it has nothing to do with the federal government… we need a stronger Judicial branch… well maybe if they had all the chairs FILLED then it would be satisfactory…

    Blow dealt to Rmoney over the weekend!

    Ron Paul gains 44 more Delegates — Rmoney gets only 6 !!!

    Rmoney’s camp Attempt TO DEFRAUD the Elections — by sending plants using FAKE delegate badges and circulating FAKE delegate slates, and even impersonating real delegates — BACKFIRES! It only helped to galvanize The People in further rejecting Perfidy Mitt!

    Paul —148

    As of May 7th:
    Paul —192

    More good news for Ron Paul — according to RNC rule #38, the Mitt has probably lost about 50 bound delegates to him; while Ron Paul has probably gained that number.

    Therefore, it could be that the more accurate numbers are:

    Paul —242

    Fox New’s REALITY CHECK Show is the source for the above numbers. Watch this video and pay attention the explanation of Rule #38 (from minute 3:15 till end of video –4:23).

      Seems this mannish-looking “lady”, in the above video, does not understand (or pretends no to) our safeguarded election process.

      Here it is in general terms (simplified):

      1) There is a popular vote (The Many choosing their candidates).

      2) Then, the Decisions of the Many are handed to the delegates (the Qualified Few), who deem if there is merit to the popular vote or just a mob’s folly.

      3) Accordingly, the delegates cast their votes to reflect the meritorious ones.

      This instituted CHECK of Mob Rule is what has kept us as a Free Republic….until recently, and HOPEFULLY AGAIN! (The Ignorant Many can be mislead by TONS of Ads by an Attractive Politician who promises what THEY want to hear (but never intends to do — that’s where The Intelligent Few come in, and The Delegates determine if MERIT is to be assigned)).

      The current AP delegate tracker shows Mitt Romney with 856 delegates, to Ron Paul’s extraordinary showing of…94. Likelihood of Mr. Paul securing the nomination? 0%. This unstoppable momentum is, well, quite easily stopped–math.

  • That’s a woeful misreading. Rule 38 says no candidate can be bound… by an attempt of state to impose the unit rule. Delegates being bound to Romney does not impose the unit rule at all, and so does not break rule 38.

    Romney has won the nomination.

  • If he wins, I will cry. Love from south america.

  • What they said, Ron Paul is personally against abortion because he’s seen it done in person, but still, that does not mean he wants to pass a law because the federal government has no authority over the matter.

    I’m all about states making the laws because states are a heck of a lot easier to get things done it. That’s why most legislation was intended in the constitution to be written by the states.

  • He doesn’t want to take any rights from you, He wants to give that right to the states and let the state governments take care of that like they should.

  • Paul’s position is that abortion is not a right based in the constitution, and so according to the constitution it goes to the states. What that means for abortion rights during Ron Paul presidency is…probably nothing. The Supreme Court would have to overturn Roe v. Wade, and even if that happened, most states, especially more populous ones, would still be pro-choice. If people can understand that, then I don’t think his position should be a deal-breaker for pro-choice voters.

  • “Rule 38” for the Republican National Convention: States and Congressional Districts cannot be forced to “bind” their delegates to a candidate. Nobody is necessarily “bound” to anybody.

  • I am a Ron Paul supporter and daily I support his candidacy on the internet. It is simply very sad that the candidate himself is so unaware of women’s lives that he is willing to take away our ability to have a safe and legal abortion. This one issue is keeping Ron Paul from actually winning an entire state. And this one issue will keep him from beating Obama. Sad that he is so out of touch with women that he wants us to turn the clocks back. This clever manipulation of delegates is not victory

  • Ron Paul, last hope for America.

    We all hope you guys realise that..

    – Rest of the World.

  • Romney may have won the straw poll. We will never know because of all the fraud but it’s a moot point because it’s the delegates that matter. There is no rule in NV that allows a candidate to hand pick the delegates. In other states yes but not in NV. They have to follow the rules. Throwing a fit doesn’t change that.

  • No, they wouldn’t be within the rules. The rules committee has to decide before the delegates are seated. Romney got the delegates, it’s just that they happen to support Paul. Romneys problem is he has no real support. If the RNC tries to play fast and loose with the rules they risk alienating the Paul people and with out them they can’t win. Keep in mind that the Paul people control a number of state party orgs and they decide who gets the GOP ballot slot. Pauls people have nothing to lose.

  • Maine: The Romney camp broke ranks out of frustration with Romney’s tactics. A lot of his delegates bailed. And SOME OF THEM JOINED THE PAUL CAMP!!!!!

  • Ron Paul needs to fall out of the race before his eyebrow falls off his face.

  • is Rachel a friend of the rEVOLution?

  • I now believe that (a) there will be a landslide in favor of Ron Paul and he will win the RNC nomination (and presidency) in the biggest upset in United States history – or (b) if they cheat him out of it, I belive there will be outright revolution. People will take to the streets and will be unstopable.

    The $ goons will step aside – or die. I believe it is going to be peaceful, I’m just saying.

  • Even if Ron Paul loses, don’t you still have the good evidence of fraud against him in the first place? If you decide to use this if he loses how would you do it or can/will it happen?

  • Fuck you
