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.

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!


Here’s a reality check for Voters, for Delegates, and especially? For the “Grande Olde Party”. themselves. We are no longer willing to sit idly by and allow the GOP to (s)elect OUR candidates/ our presidential nominee, for US.
As I stated many times in the past and even here, in yesterday’s post. “Is Ron Paul Losing?”, Dr. Ron Paul’s supporters become Delegates, as we know we cannot trust the “usual delegates” of the party, considering what has become of the GOP and who’s taken it over– the NEOCONS.
It kills me, a little bit, each time I hear one of “them” stating, proudly; “Yes, I am a Neocon”, yet they want to take it a bit further and call themselves conservative. These people are not conservative in any shape or form.
They are not conservative in regard to TAXES.
They are not conservative regarding WAR.
They are not conservative regarding all SPENDING.
These Neocons are not conservative when it comes to BIG(ger) GOVERNMENT!
Many of these politicians, in all parties and surely in the GOP, have run around on their spouses (Newt, because he “loves his country too much”?), so they are not conservative in their MARRIAGES.
These people may be conservative somewhere, but I really don’t want to try to figure out in which aspect of their “take take take” lives they are considering themselves, “conservative”.
So, if YOU are “Conservative”, as all Republicans were when I was a child, your only choice for our next POTUS would be Ron Paul. Find me one person who’s more conservative (alive, please) and I will be happy to throw my support behind him or her, too.
Thanks and enjoy this wonderfully educational video!
While you’re at it, also thank Ben Swann (twitter: @Fox19BenSwann, or youtube: BenSwannRealityCheck).

One small edit/ add: Regarding Mittens; Tell me what tying one’s dog to the roof the car, while on a family vacation sort of a road-trip into Canada, is; IS that CONSERVATIVE? Is it just stupid, cruel, and ridiculous? Certainly that is not something one should teach children when it comes to pets (or ANY animals). I’ve almost come to expect such a story out of our own Texas gubbner; Puh-Rick Perry, but coming from Mr. Holier-Than-THOU Romney, it just feels smarmier. Someone call Cesar Milan, or, the animal control folk. This man needs a talking-to, as well as some training!
