“Perhaps no important document is held in less regard in Washington, D.C. than the United States Constitution. In fact, the attitude of many Congressmen and government officials toward the Constitution consists of giving lip service to it by refusing to take it seriously. It is considered obsolete, written for agrarian economies; and our highly technological society has supposedly moved far beyond its limits.” - Ron Paul, Member of Congress – Washington, D. C. January 15th, 1983 (Excerpt from the “FORWARD TO THE FIRST EDITION” of “Pieces of Eight” by Edwin Vieira.)
The establishment GOP political machine intends to have their convention, their way. And that means duly elected Ron Paul delegates must leave their Constitutional 1st Amendment rights at the convention hall front door, because of back door dealmaking. By challenging Ron Paul delegates from Maine to Louisiana, the GOP establishment intends that Ron Paul delegates won’t get a seat, or a say in the convention. The attitude is that since Romney is the obvious Presidential nominee, there is no point in hearing anything from Ron Paul or his supporters, aka delegates. And, for appearances sake, the convention must put on a glossy show of unity and support for the obvious nominee. For the record, this is similar to the scenario that played out at the Democratic National convention in 2008, when Hillary Clinton reluctantly bowed to the Obama machine in the name of party politics .
More important for the entrenched GOP juggernaut, is that Ron Paul’s name won’t be put in nomination. Thus, Ron Paul won’t be allowed his 15 minute prime time speech on the convention floor. And this is the way you expect to attract young people to the Republican party, by using Chicago mob tactics?
According to Campaign Manager, John Tate, “The Committee on Contests recently issued a ruling on the establishment’s challenge to Ron Paul’s delegates and alternates who were duly elected in Maine, and our challenges to the outright cheating that occurred in Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Oregon (alternates only).” He adds that, “. . . the establishment is so far refusing to rule fairly and seat our duly elected delegates and/or alternates.” Paul needs at least five state delegations, to be formally nominated for President. With two weeks remaining before the GOP convention, a battle is brewing behind the scenes, with the usual complement of attorneys. Sad.
The fix was in on Paul’s candidacy from the outset. From GOP insiders to the mainstream media, Paul’s message didn’t fit the globalist agenda. Instead, he’s been fighting his entire sterling career for the things that matter most to a Republic and a people who call themselves free – Liberty and Freedom. Prediction: You will see the mainstream media further show, probably as a convention sideline, Paul as a sore loser and his followers somehow on the “fringe.” The truth will be temporarily lost.
Will Paul be silenced? If he is, which is highly probable within the convention doors of the Grand Old Party, then you will see another example of how the voice and vote of the people have become a mere sideshow for a ruling elite, of both political parties, who will stop at nothing to keep the two-party charade going in perpetuity. God Bless the United States of America.
