    Looks like the Paul guys are taking some losses on the way to the convention.

    Delegates that pledged to vote a certain way when they were delegated to take the votes of the people to Tampa should honor their pledges. Honesty is the best policy.


    I expect that Massachusetts won't be the last state to bump delegates that are obviously planning to violate their pledge.

    Yep. Play by the rules, or get thrown out.

    Its called "Ethics".




    And no, you can't have a pony.


    come to think of it, not only will paul not get nominated, they'll probably endanger giving him a plank. Cut off nose = spite face.

    Just another section added to the lawsuit displaying the corruption and fraud of the party establishment, determined to shove a Wall St owned liberal gun grabber down our throats.

    This affidavit nonsense isn't even in Massachusetts rules or law. It's gonna take a wheel barrow to carry this lawsuit for service if the GOP establishment keeps up this scorched earth approach. Keep burning the bridges GOP! Great job bringing the young voters into the party! No wonder the party is getting smaller every year and we'll lose AGAIN in November.

    <- Paul supporter


    However this turns out legally, delegates voting for someone other then who the majority of the voters they represent voted for is a horrible idea.

    FRAUD?????

    Pledge to represent the voters wishes, and when they don't vote for your candidate you want to break that pledge, and you accuse someone else of fraud?:crazy:

    Yeah, it's fraud when you change the rules in the middle of the game BECAUSE you're losing. That's exactly what Mass GOP did. They simply didn't want to be embarrassed by Romney's home state being represented in Tampa by people that don't support him. If Romney supporters had won the delegate slots then there would not have been any affidavit in the first place.

    Whoever came up with this notion that RNC delegates are elected to "represent" the voters of their district or state is flat wrong. It's checks and balances of the electoral system, not representation. If representation was all that mattered then popular vote would decide the nominee, not a convention of individually elected delegates.

    The electoral process dates from before radio. TV and the internet.


    How did the people vote, Romney or Paul?

    Your approach sounds an awful lot like a spiteful manuver to cover the fact that Ron Paul didn't even win his home District where the people know him best
    :rofl:

    The truly sad part is that those paranoid delusional lunatics do not realize that every dictator in history has been surrounded by people who told themselves they were doing what was right for the people, and the people just didn't understand that.

    Nope the RP A-clowns at this point have started to hunker in the bunker and are expecting a Volksturm to rise up and snatch victory from the deep gullet of defeat. Maybe old men and small children with panzerfausts and K-98s.

    Your point?

    Which people? The folks that make a decision based on 10 minutes of Fox News the day they go to the polls? Or the folks going to Tampa? I don't particularly care what the majority thinks since it's not my job to be their representation and the this country isn't tyranny of the majority.

    My approach is to be a free thinking individual, much more involved in the process than "the people" you spoke of that can't be bothered to do more than push a button on a computer once every few years.

    Ironic statement coming from someone who had to decide whether to vote for a liberal gun grabber from the North or...a liberal gun grabber from the North. Tough choice there. You've decided to vote for the liberal gun grabber from the North and you're really going to post that drivel above with a straight face? :upeyes:

    You're doing a heck of a lot more to bring on the collapse of this country with your Einstein's Definition of Insanity voting method.

    It ain't over till the fat lady sings. I wonder why you hate competition so much and support overt fraud by political parties.

    The dishonesty of these Ronulans is no surprise, considering the intellectual dishonesty necessary to support Ron Paul in the real world.

    He never had any chance whatsoever of winning the GOP nomination. No honest sane person could ever deny this.:tinfoil:

    That is a respectable and ethical position. You have headlights. Meaning you can see ahead what that action will cause. It would be a LARGE domino, and some very predictable outcomes would be acheived, all of them counterproductive for the Liberty Movement.

    Paul lost the popular vote. The RNC is doing what they can to stop Trojan Horse delegates like yourself (allegedly) from unethically violating your pledge. In that at least, I support them.

    Have you signed your affedavit yet? Have you been bumped off the delegation yet? If you're still going, who will you vote for on the first ballot?

    The ones we are talking about, we never had. Net loss of zero.

    Ron can't win primary votes without us, as has been massively proven by his actual number of votes. That was the bridge burned.

    My position, is vote the way you want. It's your vote. Unless you pledged to carry the votes of others, then you should probably not violate your pledge and metaphorically stab your neighbors in the back. If they do, as one alleged delegate has openly stated, I hope all their neighbors find out, and that he will be reading his posts here aloud in court, which is not all that far fetched an outcome, if he actually doesn't vote according to his pledge in the first ballot (which is what he will really do, regardless of what he posts here). If he has signed an affidavit, He could be charged with perjury. His neighbors, the one that he pledged to carry votes for to the convention, might have some civil actions that they want to take too.

    Wow. Just go ahead and put on your brown shirts and arm bands while you're at it, since the majority and will of the people mean nothing to the Paulatarians.

    [​IMG]

    The majority of American Republicans would never vote for the cult leader Paul, and never will. He's simply a liberal, geriatric, limp-wrist, coward, pot-headed, anti-American, anti-military, pro-marxist, and has more in common with the Progressive left Democrats than he does the Republicans.

    This from the guy who's supports the New England liberal who invented Obamacare. Modern day republicans are nothing more than democrat retreads, who beg for more government in their lives. Without someone telling you what to do, you'd be completely lost.

    Keep parroting and regurgitating the same tired, old "DailyPaul" propaganda........:upeyes:

    Paulaterians consistently and expectantly follow the liberal belief, "If you tell a lie often enough, it will be accepted as truth."

    Fortunately, most honest people are smart enough to know otherwise.

    That may very well be the case, but that still doesn't get Ron Paul any closer to being elected to the White House. If Ron Paul wants to be President he has to find a way to get those who consistently do not vote for him to change their minds (and opinions of him) and vote for him. So far, in several presidential elections now, he has been consistently unsuccessful at convincing enough people to vote for him.
