More evidence is leaking out that the Republican Party is entirely rigging their presidential nominee. Let’s run down the current list of shenanigans the Republican Party has pulled to prevent Ron Paul’s nomination. First the Republican National Committee said they may not allowed Nevada to seat any delegates of the state sent “too many” Ron Paul delegates. Then Paul delegates in Louisiana were forcefully removed from a convention by the police acting on orders from the Old Guard. If that wasn’t enough the state party in Massachusetts invalidated 17 Ron Paul delegates because they refused to sign an oath of loyalty.
What else could the Old Guard do to further guarantee Romney’s nomination? How about threaten to invalidate the 20 Ron Paul delegates from Maine if they refuse to sign an oath to Romney:
In the state of Maine, it is well documented that 21 of the 24 delegates are strong supporters of Congressman Ron Paul.
Those 21 delegates plan to go to Tampa later this month and cast a vote for Dr. Paul to receive the nomination.
A little over a week ago, 20 of those 21 delegates were told that their credentials were being challenged by Mr. Peter Cianchette (who headed the Romney campaign in Maine).
This weekend, the RNC, via Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster offered a “compromise”… take a look:
1. A majority of the delegates sign a statement agreeing that, if Ron Paul is not on the ballot, they will vote at the Convention for Mitt Romney.
2. Instead of Brent Tweed, Charlie Webster or Paul LePage would serve as the spokesperson for the delegation and announce the votes cast for president. That spokesperson would also handle all media on behalf of the Maine delegation.
3. There will be nothing negative said about Mitt Romney or positive said about Obama (especially to media).
4. The Delegation will be admitted to the Convention, and to all committee assignments, without barrier.
5. The Contest brought by Jan Staples and Peter Cianchette will be withdrawn.
I emphasized point one because it is the most incriminating point. Notice the wording, if Ron Paul isn’t on the ballot the delegates will vote for Mitt Romney, not any other potential presidential nominee. On top of that the delegates must agree to be good little slaves and let their masters do all the talking during the convention.
I’m sure the people who concocted the idea of hijacking the Republican Party had the best of intentions. They weren’t stupid, just naive. They made a common mistake, they believed that the Republican Party was a political organization run by the members. Instead they found out that the party is run by a handful of elites who will pull every trick in the book to ensure their desires are fulfilled. If it appears as though things won’t go their way they merely rig it. As soon as it appeared like Paul would stand an actual chance against Romney the elites made their move, ensuring there wouldn’t be enough Paul delegates to threaten Romney’s ascension.
This is why I want the Paul delegates who make it to the convention to turn it into a circus. Why should Paul’s delegates act professional when the Republican Party hasn’t? Why should anybody be expected to treat the Republican National Convention (RNC) as anything other than a parody? It’s a sham, the entire thing is rigged.
If you want to continue down the political road abandon the Republican Party and move to the Libertarian Party. It’s unfortunate that the presidential election is just as rigged against third parties as the RNC is rigged against Ron Paul otherwise the Libertarian Party may stand some kind of chance. Even though they stand no chance your time would be better served working for them than working for a party that flat out rigs their nominations.
