    Ron Paul Delegates Cause Mayhem At Republican Convention

    I had read the romny campaign and Paul supporters had made a deal...I guess no one told the Paulites

    A divided Republican Party was on full display Tuesday when Rep. Ron Paul's (R-Texas) supporters and other grassroots activists loudly booed House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on the first full day of the Republican National Convention. The fight was over the unglamorous rules process that dictates how delegates are apportioned in each state. Paul didn't sweep the ballot boxes in state caucuses and primaries, but his supporters quietly worked behind the scenes in an effort to take control of state parties and delegate assignments.

    In other news, the DNC cancelled their convention citing the fact that sleeping pills would be cheaper.

    Ron Paul's supporters must have been thrilled also that the RNC found a way to muzzle Paul during the convention. Rather that letting him speak, they prepared a video that only talked about the things the party regulars went along with.

    Here is the video if any missed it:

    You won't find any reference to Paul's position that we should drastically cut military spending as Romney has pledged to increase military spending. It will be interesting to see what the Paul supporters think of this RNC tactic.

    Obviously a deal was made to assist Ron Paul turning over the reins to Rand Paul, who just said over and over the word "unconstitutional" hoping he can assume his father's zealot groupies.

    Instead of paying all of your attention to the Paul supporters at the convention, and focusing only on the negative, and watch Ron Pauls speech at his We Are The Future Rally and hear some truth instead of the usual lies.

    FULL UNEDITED Ron Paul Speech @ We Are the Future Rally - Tampa Sun Dome - Aug 26 2012 - YouTube

    theres a few minutes of Rand Paul introducing his father at the beginning...it was a great speech though. and it shows the hundreds of Paul supporters who demonstrated not only their numbers and political power, but also demonstrated an ability not to interrupt the RNC, which should have given him a spot to speak, Clint Eastwood got up there and told the truth and he wasnt called a lunatic...

    Ron Paul is no more a Republican than Joe Lieberman is an independent. Think he will be speaking at the DNC?

    That's like asking if Stewart Alexander will speak at the next RNC. Paul's a libertarian - and in my opinion as airhead, though we'll put that aside - but he's still a right winger.
