Despite Romney’s Mafia-Style Cheating, Ron Paul Is the Real Winner [article and commentary]_Featured_, Politics Thursday, August 30th, 2012
Before the Dawn
The darker the establishment’s tactics become, the more they illuminate their own corruption to the masses. And now, every thinking Republican, regardless of their political views, has realized that the system is rigged. It does not matter what the people want. Their candidates will be selected for them from a pre-approved set of options. Democracy in Presidential politics is truly dead; it is not this fact, but the realization of it that will mark a turning point in American history.
Despite mafia-style tactics on the part of the Romney campaign and the RNC to deny Ron Paul his rightful and legitimate shot at the nomination, history will view the Congressman’s campaign as a pivotal moment in history. His movement for freedom has not been defeated. It is just warming up.
And when it inevitably collides with the political behemoth that is Occupy Wall Street, with whom Paul’s supporters actually agree on a majority of issues (even if many of them have not yet realized this) an unstoppable political force will be unleashed in a perfect storm with the capacity to transform this country in the blink of an historical eye. I make this predication now with high degree of confidence. Just watch. It’s going to be quite the show.
Ron Paul Won
(Daily Paul) In all fields of human endeavor, winning by cheating is losing.
In a competition, when someone cheats, he gets disqualified. The disqualification does not make the runner-up the winner. Rather, it reveals that the man who appeared to be the runner-up had in fact been the winner all along.
In the race for the GOP nomination for President, therefore, Ron Paul won.
As the New York Times wrote yesterday,
Delegates from Nevada tried to nominate Mr. Paul from the floor, submitting petitions from their own state as well as Minnesota, Maine, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. That should have done the trick: Rules require signatures from just five states. But the party changed the rules on the spot. Henceforth, delegates must gather petitions from eight states.
When Mr. Romney and the RNC cheat so blatantly, they make the game no longer about politics: they make themselves ineligible for the vote of anyone who cares about his own morality, his own honesty or his own integrity – regardless of his politics. And from a purely practical standpoint, they invite Americans to ask if they want to live in a nation governed with the same contempt for those who don’t toe the party line as has been displayed both in Tampa and throughout the primary process.
But as a Ron Paul supporter, I can’t remember feeling so invigorated and empowered in my cause.
