Safe Mode: On
Ron Paul supporters and delegates silenced at convention.

Ron Paul, who by all account would easily have fallen in a 2nd place to the nomination and some argue 1st...will not get his day at the RNC regardless now. The GOP which many have accused of being hijacked by "fake" conservatives over the last few years has once again shown it's true colors by not only keeping the Ron Paul delegates from answering roll at the convention, but also replacing delegates that had clearly supported Paul and replaced with their own Romney delegates. This in it's own speaks volumes on how the GOP has come out of touch with the working class voter and decided to head full speed into the corporate money ocean. And while most beleive Paul would not have received the nomination, the clear sabotaging of convention rules and regulations to favor the fake conservative Romney are seen as a dirty underhanded trick that has become the gop's mainstay in the past decade.
"Paul's supporters shouted and booed when rules were adopted as part of the
Republican Party's official platform that would hinder the kind of grassroots
campaign that carried Paul to the national convention.
When their candidate received any delegates in the state-by-state roll call,
Paul's supporters delivered loud cheers. However, convention organizers
ultimately made a decision to stop calling out the Paul delegates.
That decision was met with furious cries from Paul's supporters, who said
their voices weren't being heard at the Republican Party's official gathering.
When states listed delegate votes for both Romney and Paul, party officials at
the podium listed only the votes assigned to Romney, who secured enough
delegates Tuesday to officially clinch the GOP nomination.
At one point, delegates from Maine walked off the convention floor in protest
of a Republican National Committee decision to replace 10 of the 20 delegates
Paul had secured in the state. That move prevented Maine from submitting Paul's
name for nomination."

  • It is pathetic the lack of respect the republican party has given Ron Paul. A new party needs to rise up to represent the citizens. This country was not ruined overnight by this bloated and corrupt government, and it will not be fixed in one election. The best that can be done right now is to get Barry out of the whitehouse.

  • Ron Paul is the best candidate for the Tea Party types which Romney is "sucking up" to but Mitt has no intention of fullfilling their hyper-conservative platform.

    Republic'nts are always f'kin' someone - even their supporters.

    • @Nepean109 well...the gop fucked themselves on this one. Of course the sheep crowd will vote Romney cause faux news tells them too. But at this point I would vote for that douche bag Obama just to spite the gop and their weak ass commie bullshit. I'll never vote for that fake ass Romney, or that little queer he picked as his running mate.

    • @Nepean109 Ron Paul is so far from one of these tea party faggots it is ridiculous that you would say it. I am not bashing you. But Ron Paul has no links to the tea party. The tea party allowed itself to get hijacked by the GOP douche bags anyways and they are none different. Fuck the tea party for being a bunch of blow hard loud mouth pussies that did nothing but become exactly what they were preaching against.

  • Romney is the Kerry of this election.

    Ron Paul may have caused some problems with the coming election's results.

  • I'm sure computerized voting was put in place to "help America vote"... Correctly.

    HAVA = Help America Vote Act - The bill that gave us computerized voting.

    Something we absolutely must do away with. Elections done on paper ballots while not perfect are far harder to rig.

    The hanging chad thing was BS to get you to accept computerized voting. If not, we're the dumbest people on the planet for not being able to make a functional paper ballot.

    • @RealTruth lol. Love these liberal commie types. Romney is right up your alley. And internet partitions did not get Paul on any ballet. If you had a fucking clue beyond your little beat-neck emo world you might know that. So go back to trying to figure out which turtle neck to wear for your boyfriend tonight and leave the comments to people who have a fucking clue. Idiot.

    • @RealTruth Beautiful!!

      You left out how that old kook NEVER lifted a finger outside his 9-5 job description, never attended the huge TEA party rallies of the "party" he allegedly created.

      Or how he is against earmarks but loaded bills he was against with pork voted against them then bragged about his voting, the same record his drones would invoke. Sorry Ronnie your excuse of thats how the game is played wont fly, if youre against them you dont play the game.

      Then there is the &q More..
