Ron Paul's delegate strategy is perfectly legitimate

    This WashTimes item lays it out as well as possible. Great piece. I hope Paulites refer to this long and detailed write-up the next time they're challenged about how delegate wins are "cheating" or "backdoor" or whatever.


    Since it's got serious copyright warnings I won't post any contents here...been warned about that before. Read it.

    So it sounds like his stratey is to negate the votes cast by voters by appealing to delgates directly.

    When are Ron Paul fans going to give it up?

    When he dies are you going to switch to Rand Paul?

    Does Rand Paul have any kids?

    Paul's delegate strategery is akin to burning incense on the convention floor and chanting to the god Ssabmud to deliver the nomination to them.

    The problem with Ronulans and stuff like this isn't that they are stupid...they aren't...but that they think everyone else is.

    Kinda depends on your definition of "Legitimate".

    I view it as an attempt to sneak into the bank in the middle of the night through an unlocked back door.

    But if the rules say he can do it, he can try. Anything can happen, but I'm thinking this is going to be about as effective as the "Shadow Convention" was the last time. I remember reading Paul supporters stating that they could just nominate him at the shadow convention, and disrupt the actual convention, and Paul would be the nominee.

    Oh well, :yawn: [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]we'll see, but if I had to bet the title to my truck, I'd place my bets with Romney at the moment. Not a good situation, not the one I hoped for, but that's the direction we are going in. Paul guys need to prepare themselves for another disappointment.

    Ron Paul's so called "delegate strategy" may be legal, but he is in essence giving the finger to the republican party and the American voter.

    The American voter has rejected Ron Paul and all that he stands for.

    It's time for him to take his toys and go home.
  8. Ron Paul will not be nominated, and when his Paulistinians continue to sputter in their little fantasy world, they just look more and more pathetic.

    Thank God these crazy people will never get elected.

    Trying to win after you've already lost is what is communist.

    Is Ron Paul now showing his true Anarchist colors?

    I think one president trying to destroy America is enough.
    Ron Paul should drop out of the race today.

    So, you think somebody needs to give the finger to the American voter?

    The right to vote is what made this country the greatest and freest country on this planet.

    ...and you think it needs to be given the finger.

    You anti-American anarchist Ron Paul supporters are showing your true colors more and more each day.

    Do I? Absolutely. The American voter has consistently voted to empower this state to expand beyond original intent, borrow far more money than can ever be repaid, enact confiscatory taxation regimes, and launch countless assaults on my liberty by stepping into nearly every facet of my life from what I can ingest, to where I can use the phone, to what type of 2nd amendment privilege I may enjoy. Yes, I would love to give a giant one-fingered salute to the modern American voter - a population towards which history will not be kind. The modern American voter: stuffed with chemicals and corn derivatives, voting to regulate each other into statist hell, and tax each other into poverty by destroying, through their willful vote and functional ignorance, what was once the greatest country in history. The American voter who has CHOSEN -- chosen, mind you - to create and continually grow the largest and most expensive government in the history of humanity. The American voter who smiles like a simpleton as they line up to walk through irradiation chambers at airports, the American voter who blasts Obamacare one day and votes for Romney the next, the American voter who.... WTH, never mind.

    Those are my true colors and, presumably, the colors of any sentient American left out there.

    Why do you continue to live in such a terrible place?
    The exits from this country are numerous and well marked.

    Just pick one, and don't let the gate hit you in....

    First because I was born here. Its my country and my land, not some kleptocrat or bureaucrat in Washington. Secondly because I want to stick around to watch guys like you get swallowed up by the state you created.

    So if you are a voter (and I presume you are) then in essence you are giving yourself the finger!
  17. This isn't the general election. This is the party system to nominate a candidate, the rules for which were set up by the parties themselves. Don't blame Ron Paul supporters for knowing the rules and using them to their advantage. I certainly wouldn't blame Romney supporters for trying to organize and get delegates in states where he didn't win the meaningless straw poll. Then again, I've never actually met a Romney supporter.

    I have. He's actually fairly intelligent, but when it comes to modern American politics he catches that same mental illness that affects those with Obamania.

    Look no farther than North Dakota where Romney did just that.

    Do you actually think Ron Paul has a chance of winning the republican nomination?
