Great piece, again, by Ben Swann.

Now, what does this mean? Are the “libertarians” taking over the GOP? Or, is the GOP based on libertarian values? In my mind, the GOP was the most libertarian, before they were taken over by the Neo-Cons. Since the eighties, and the take-over (by some who really don’t even know what that has meant to their lives and their party), the party HAS lost her way. So, are these “new” Republicans cut from the OLD cloth, or, are they trying to change the party to what it never was meant to be?

In this video (the montage of video clips), the State-Chairwoman from Washington State tried to say, “If the Ron Paul campaign is (going to) TAKE OVER this meeting, they have to PAY the Insurance fees, as the GOP is not covering the Ron Paul campaign” (or essentially this). Problem? Ron Paul IS a Republican. Each and every delegate and want-to-be delegate HAS sworn a oath of affiliation with the Republican party, as has Ron Paul, so ANY Republican would be covered under ANY standard umbrella policy. Now, IF the Republican Party of Washington State did not pay these insurance fees, making the floor open to ANY and ALL Republican comers, who DID?
The only scenario I can see the insurance fees not covering the Ron Paul Republicans would be this: Mitt Romney campaign PAID the fees. Has Mitt’s campaign paid the fees? if so, we have MORE dirty-dealings (probably fraudulent, definitely scandalous) in the GOP. So, I would like to know, from the mouth of the State GOP of Washington State: DID MITT ROMNEY PAY THESE DUES OR FEES?
If not, this woman needs to sit down and zip it. If so, we need another investigation into malfeasance..
Personally, I believe the Romney campaign has NOT paid the insurance for this meeting. However, as this woman has been SO adament that the Ron Paul folk are not covered to run the meeting (as Delegate Chair(s)), I have to wonder what really is happening.

Anyone in Washington State ready to spill the beans on this? If so, let me know.. and, of course, TELL Ben Swann, of Reality-Check fame. I am sure Ben would investigate and run with this, whichever truth it is, and will post the final truth– like a REAL journalist.
You can contact Ben on Twitter: @Fox19BenSwann, or in youtube, @BenSwannRealityCheck.

Again, if anyone in Washington State knows more of this backstory, I’d love to hear it. If this woman was simply speaking out of turn, I’d like to hear HER apologize to ALL GOP members, especially any and all DELEGATES, which seem to have gone the way of, Ron Paul!


SO MUCH Support for RON PAUL, People Were Up in Trees to GLIMPSE HIM!

There’s not a lot more to say about this wonderful happening, this event, in California. People were so excited to see Ron Paul, when they could not get into the stadium to hear and see him, they climbed the trees for a chance to catch a glimpse of the man.
Now, most don’t even bother showing up for a seat at a NewtSantoRomney stump. When the few who DO show for them arrive, they are handed so-called “homemade” signs, as nobody shows with signs of their own supporting any of these establishment TOOLS/ I think most of us Paul supporters have our own signs, and we carry them with us.
Which of the other candidates, Obama included, can say people are so excited to see them, they would climb trees? Oh, none of them.
And, did Obama draw this size crowd during his ’08 run? No he did not. and expect fewer this year, too. NDAA SOPA NDRP PIPA= hey Obama- WTF?

From today’s latest post; from my post in TheDailyPaul, a few weeks back. Please pay attention.
Thank You!

Or, is he losing?  

Here’s the sole thing one must bear in mind, when it comes to ALL elections, including primaries and caucuses;  until the (district) delegates have met, decided on their leaders/chairs, voted in certain delegates to take it to the state convention and ultimately, to the National Convention in Florida, nobody really knows.  Yes, the Mass Media talking-heads and pundits are using their “math” to show Paul as losing, and kooky/spooky newzz site -yahoo- actually printed a load of tripe stating Paul had DROPPED OUT, the truth is nowhere, yet.  If you have not been following the “delegate count” as put forth by the MSM, you should go back a few months.  If you look, you will see that not only have they added fewer delegates than we KNOW he has garnered the votes from, now they are actually subtracting delegate votes from Ron Paul.  

It reminds me of when one of the Bushes said, “math is hard”.  I think that was “W”, but don’t quote me on that;  look it up and let me know if I am wrong!

Back to the vote, who’s winning and who’s losing;  we, those who are yet to convene or caucus as delegates, need to remember one thing: ALWAYS bring a camera or your phone with you.  Make sure batteries are charged-up and cards are CLEAR. Buy bigger cards, as you may need to video for a long time. Be discreet, so as not to get booted from your meeting, and..? Get the proof.  Get it on video.  If you don’t know what to do with that proof, you can ALWAYS post here– or just send it to me on twitter or other places (I am easily searchable in most any search-engine) and I will get it to the people in the media (not the NEWZZZ– who are there to lull us into this deep slumber), who do actually care enough to research and post what you’ve found.  With what appears to be rampant fraud and wrongdoings in the “Grande Olde Party”, especially this political season, we will need that PROOF.

And, again;  I do have the ear of some who care enough to delve into your proof, investigate it as fraud (or not), and actually will produce real news segments.  So, just do your part and we will all be happier (and this election will be cleaner and more transparent) for it!

Now, get out there!  Regardless of whom it is you would prefer to see as “winner” from the GOP side, or if you’re a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, or even if you are an Indy (like me) and  refuse to vote for either party;  get the proof.  Do something positive for this Democratic Republic.

And, remember; this IS a Republic.  Many of our delegates are unbound, which means they are not forced to vote for any one person, in particular.  Even if your primary or caucus appeared to be for one of the also-rans, unbound delegates are not required to go along with that vote.  In states where delegates ARE “bound”, they are required to go along with whatever the state’s numbers were– in the FIRST round of voting, and at the national level, but only if one of the candidates takes 51 percent of the vote.  If, after a first vote does not yield 51 percent for anyone, in particular, ALL delegates are then unbound, and they can vote for whomever they choose.  I hope this will mean Ron Paul stands a much larger chance for a win, and that could be the case.  But, it would also make it easier for NewtSantoRomney to garner that 51-percent, too.  It is why I have also said, as I have seen it;  Ron Paul’s supporters are not content to rely on the usual delegates;  we BECOME DELEGATES.

GO out there, get your vote on, and always?  Get the PROOF we may (will, most likely) need.  Thanks for all you do!
