While we were in Tampa, Florida on August 26, 2012 we ran across several Ron Paul delegates who offered to share their experience with the GOP corruption that has been ongoing this year.

Major Voting Fraud at Iowa Caucus

Funny, now presumptively we as a people should go out and decide which is the lessor of two evils and vote for accordingly.  Personally, I see two choices.  Writing in is one and standing down is the other.  BTW, standing down is not my style and highly unlikely.   Admitted, I have strange beliefs, such as honor, duty and principle.   There may be a few others out there that hold the same beliefs, such as all that took an oath to protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  So what is the popular “vote” based on participation?  One candidate pulls in 3,000 to 8,000 on short notice to speak, another pulls in 100 folks, half of which are security and media.  Yup, I’m probably just delusional, lol, not!

Grassroots Defined

Each day, I go through stories similar to this one. Some I share, others I don’t. Yet, each demonstrates how Ron Paul supporters are reshaping the Republican Party from the bottom-up. From a story in Washington’s Bellingham Herald titled “Whatcom GOP sees flood of precinct filings from Ron Paul supporters:”

Ron Paul supporters filed en masse to run for Republican Party precinct committee officers, grass-roots elected seats that will be on this year’s primary election ballot.

The goal, said one PCO race newcomer, is to return the party to the principles it used to have.

“It needs to change,” said Greg Parsons, who is running against PCO Kathy Kershner. “I do have some issues with establishment Republicans. On the contrary, I think we are, in fact, the real, true conservative Republicans.”

PCO seats, elected every two years, often receive no interest, or only one person files. This year, because of a flood of interest in Republican PCO seats, many more contested races will be on the ballot…

But nearly an equal number of names unfamiliar to party officials appeared on the filing list, and many challenged longtime PCOs. By comparing them to the list of caucus participants, they learned they are Paul supporters, Van Werven said.

“I suspect that they are interested in organizing – reorganizing – the local Republican Party,” Van Werven said.

Maine GOP Convention: Paul shakes up the party

Hoping to send the maverick to Tampa, Ron Paul supporters secure key posts and take over the state convention agenda

AUGUSTA – Supporters of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul commandeered the Maine Republican Party convention Saturday as part of a multi-state strategy designed to give him a voice at the national GOP convention in Tampa, Fla.

Despite pre-emptive efforts by state party Chairman Charlie Webster, Paul’s highly organized volunteers and supporters took over the proceedings at the Augusta Civic Center. Using preprinted ballots and floor generals who flashed large signs reminding backers which candidates to support, the Paul campaign bested supporters of Mitt Romney, the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee.

Paul’s backers took control of key parliamentary positions and the convention agenda. The effort was part of the Paul campaign’s national effort to overtake Republican state conventions and win enough state delegates to send Paul to the national convention.

National pundits believe Paul, a proselytizer of free-market economics and libertarianism who hasn’t won a single state primary, has a slim chance of forcing a brokered convention in Tampa to challenge Romney. However, Paul’s supporters in Maine said sending enough delegates to the event will force the Republican National Committee to give him a prominent speaking role to amplify his message.

“Our feeling is that we think it’s important to have our voice heard,” said state Rep. Aaron Libby, R-North Waterford, a Paul supporter. “This election is far too important. We believe Ron Paul is different from all the other candidates, and he’s different in ways that are vital to the well-being of this country.”

The extent of the takeover had yet to be determined, even after a long day of jockeying for position. Extensive procedural delays pushed the election of 15 state delegates well into the evening.

Maine sends 24 delegates to the national convention. Fifteen at-large delegates are elected, as well as three from each congressional district. The state committee chairman, chairwoman and the party chairman also serve as delegates.

The voting was scheduled to take place Saturday afternoon, but the election of parliamentary officers tossed the entire event into chaos, as Paul and Romney delegates exchanged procedural maneuvers…

Ron Paul, Maine, majority

James Carlton of the Lincoln County State Committee counts votes of his county's delegates during the election of national committeemen at the Maine Republican Convention at the Augusta Civic Center in Augusta, Maine, Saturday, May 5, 2012.

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — With Ron Paul forces in control, the Maine Republican Convention has elected a majority slate supporting the Texas congressman to the GOP national convention.

The names of 15 at-large delegates from Maine to the Tampa, Fla., convention were posted Sunday morning as the state convention entered its second day. Ron Paul supporters essentially took over the convention Saturday after electing a convention chairman. Maine has a total of 24 delegates.

Paul finished a close second behind Mitt Romney in Maine’s presidential caucuses but those results were nonbinding.

Charles Cragin, a Romney supporter who lost Saturday’s bid to chair the convention, calls the turn of events “bizarre.” He says the Paul-led delegation may not be seated at the national convention because of violations of rules of procedure this weekend in Augusta.

Nevada GOP leaders reject legal advice

SPARKS – Nevada GOP leaders on Friday dismissed legal advice from the Republican National Committee, which threatened not to seat the state’s delegates at the national convention if too many Ron Paul supporters are elected.

The decision was made during a meeting of the Nevada Republican Party’s executive committee ahead of today’s state GOP convention, said Clark County GOP Chairman Dave Gibbs, who sits on the panel.

“We’re going to stand with the rules we agreed to in October and not with the RNC’s interpretation,” Gibbs said. “Nevada Republicans at this convention are going to elect our delegates. The presidential campaigns aren’t going to pick them.”

Two GOP officials, one on the 12-member executive board and one who isn’t, confirmed the unanimous decision made in a private meeting to ignore the RNC threat against the Nevada delegation as well as the RNC’s legal advice.

The decision clears the way for Paul supporters to try to carry out their strategy today to elect as many delegates to the national convention as possible although Mitt Romney won the Feb. 4 presidential caucuses here.

The Romney camp, meanwhile, is working hard to promote its delegates attending the convention to ensure he gets at least half of the 28 Nevada delegates at stake after winning 50 percent of the GOP caucus vote.

Gibbs said the executive committee disagreed with an RNC lawyer who said in a May 2 letter to the party that the presidential campaigns should be allowed to approve the Nevada delegates elected to the national convention to ensure each gets his full allotment. Romney is supposed to get 20 now and Paul eight because Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum dropped out of the race and their delegates were reallocated to Romney and Paul, who finished third on Feb. 4.

Gibbs said that under the Nevada GOP rules adopted in October and sent to the RNC, the delegates to the national convention will be chosen in a two-step process that doesn’t include any candidate loyalty test.

First, the 2,000 or so state delegates at today’s convention will elect 28 delegates to attend the national convention – no matter which candidate they support. After that, the secretary of the Nevada GOP meeting will bind 20 of those elected delegates to vote for Romney at the national convention in Tampa and eight to vote for Paul.

RNC may block Nevada delegation if it seats too many pro-Paul delegates

Ron Paul, Nevada, delegates, RNC, GOP

The Republican National Committee has sent a stern letter to the Nevada Republican Party warning the state not to draw too heavily from supporters of Texas Congressman Ron Paul (R) for its delegates, reports DC insider blog “The Hill.” If the delegation fails to feature the 20 out of 28 supporters it needs for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (R), the national committee has warned that it will refuse to seat them at the Republican National Convention this summer.

Rachel Maddow has reported that at this juncture, no delegates have been awarded to any of the candidates from Michigan, Iowa and other states including Nevada. Paul and his supporters have been using their own strategy, including some of the more obscure rules of delegate selection, to pack state committees with their own delegates.

Paul enjoys strong support in Nevada. National officials are becoming worried that the congressman’s popularity could throw a wrench into the works of an otherwise smooth nomination process for Romney.

RNC chief counsel John R. Phillippe Jr. wrote to Nevada GOP chair Michael McDonald, “I believe it is highly likely that any committee with jurisdiction over the matter would find improper any change to the election, selection, allocation, or binding of delegates, thus jeopardizing the seating of Nevada’s entire delegation to the National Convention.”

Typically, delegate distribution is meant to reflect the state’s caucus vote, which took place on February 4, with Romney winning more than 50 percent of the votes cast. National Republicans are concerned that Paul-friendly delegates will use their power in Nevada to game the state convention in Sparks, Nevada this weekend, thus opening the possibility that they will send a delegation to Tampa this summer that will flout party rules and support their candidate over the party’s nominee.

Las Vegas Sun columnist Jon Ralston wrote that Nevada’s GOP chair McDonald is “close to some of the Paul folks. He adds that he doesn’t think Paul’s supporters “respect authority too much,” which creates the distinct possibility of havoc this weekend, a prospect that Ralston finds “too delicious.”

Paul himself expressed optimism in an interview with Bloomberg TV on Monday.

“Just look at this last week,” he said, “The news is very favorable to us. We could even end up winning Iowa, ironically enough. In Minnesota, we’re doing well, and Maine, Nevada and Missouri. We’re doing very, very well. Some of the states we could very well win or come up very much because the delegate process is completely different than these straw votes. We’re pleased … It’s another month or so until they count all the delegates and we find out where we stand.”

Initial vote counts said that Mitt Romney won the Iowa caucus, which was one of the earliest primary votes, held on January 3. Recounts have since then shown that the majority of votes in the state were actually won by Paul.
