I’m not really sure you call this fraud. However, corrupt would be a better descriptor for the state GOP processes to elect delegates to the state convention. This is very typical of how things are handled at all levels of the GOP. There are many recorded instances of corruption within the GOP ranks. The bottom-line is this people: The GOP, RNC, DNC, etc.. are all private parties. As with most private parties, there are only rules set forth to enforce the desires of the “party establishment”. If a potential action(s) arise that runs counter to the establishment’s mandate(s, then they do what is necessary to protect that establishment. Regardless that a majority may oppose the actions of a minority “establishment” members within the party, it doesn’t matter. Why?
THEY MAKE THE RULES UP AS THEY GO!
So, go ahead and think that getting involved within one of the major political parties will alter the corrupt and abusive nature of the Republican and Democrat parties. The result will be exactly what happened in Clark county, GA county GOP convention where the majority of meeting attendants were shut down without voice as the rules were changed before their very eyes. Don’t fool yourself by thinking this is an isolated incident. I leave you by asking a very important question: How can the establishment’s two major political parties, who are private clubs with ever-changing rules and fragmented along state lines, ever lend themselves to fairness and consistency when the state political parties are not held accountable by federal election laws. I don’t like government regulations in general, but this is one area where voter disenfranchised needs to be eliminated. America will never have fair and open elections as long as unaccountable private parties are allowed to control their election game and the ultimate result at the federal level.
It’s laughable and sad to see what effort the GOP establishment will undertake to make sure their anointed candidate(s) will be elected to run for President. The GOP can’t even manage to cheat voters without getting caught. Whether it’s in Iowa, Nevada, or Maine, at least the GOP is consistent; consistently corrupt.
The fact is the GOP establishment supports a liberty-taking, statist, big-government agenda. The Neo-Conservative stranglehold on the GOP, with their fiscal insanity agenda, will drive the Republican party over a cliff as they seek to start a new
“WAR ON ___________”(FILL IN THE BLANK).
As a registered Republican, I will not support the GOP establishment that is hell bent on demonizing anyone or anything that stands for or stands up for individual liberty and freedom and small government. Whether Ron Paul or any other liberty-minded candidate, their actions should be condemned as they shove unelectable candidates down our throats.
So, even though Maine was primarily a straw vote GOP event held last Saturday, the shenanigans conducted by Maine’s GOP showed that “they just make the rules up as they go”. Counties which caucused a week before the actual caucus didn’t have their votes counted. Of course, there’s the Washington county cancellation where vote numbers will not be calculated in the vote totals. Then there are precincts that verified their totals with GOP headquarters, only to find the number off substantially. And yes, the candidate effected the most was Ron Paul.
So, as the light slowly shines on this election corruption, and as the actual vote totals trickle in, it will probably be revealed that Paul actually won the caucus. Here is a video called “Reality Check” from a Maine TV station revealing how much effort the GOP put forth to make sure Romney was the winner of the caucus. Is this what you support? No matter what candidate you voted for, how would you feel about your vote not being counted? Not very good I say. Goodbye GOP!
As a resident of Upstate South Carolina, being from Charleston, I took personal offense to Obama’s big government thugs putting the beat-down on South Carolinians and Boeing. If you liked this kind overreaching government action, then you should love Rick Santorum.
This new overreach from the SOPA legislation, sponsored by Congressman Lamar Smith, hit a big nerve that should really bother Americans. Most people seem to overlook this crucial fact:
THE TAXPAYERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EFFORT OR COST OF BECOMING THE POLICE FORCE OF “CORPORATE AMERICA”.
That’s exactly one of the major problems in America. Our country is run by and on behalf of Corporations. And yes, America is an Oligarchy.
Rick Santorum, in the following video, displays the biggest reason he not qualified to even politically represent any constituent. “Big Stick” Rick approves the government beat-down on ISP’s if the entertainment industry insists. You and I get to pick up the tab. I guess Mr. “Big Stick” Rick could join in on the beat-downs.
Bottom-line: If the entertainment industry wants to prevent or prosecute piracy, that’s fine. There are many legal remedies to address that issue, so they should seek them. Just keep your hands out of my pocket and finance your own folly. “Big Stick Rick thinks American Taxpayers should foot the bill.
There is plenty of research material available on Mitt Romney regarding his political positions. Some of the GOP Presidential nominees, political pundits, and the GOP establishment decry the use of this research if it comes from objectionable sources. That’s a straw man argument originated to squelch any criticism based on DNC’s or Democrat political groups’ findings. I’ve heard Newt Gingrich try to use the same argument against Ron Paul and accused him of being associated with George Soros. Newsflash -Ron Paul is not a Soros tool and some of the most damning research on politicians is conducted by their opposition. So, according to the establishment, any damning factual evidence that’s non-GOP based and used against a GOP presidential candidate is totally false and irrelevant. Besides that, it gets you labeled an enemy of the GOP. That argument doesn’t hold up to scrutiny and any of the Presidential candidates that demonize presenters of negative truths are afraid to run on their record.
Below are four opposition papers, including McCain’s 200-page research paper, on Mitt Romney, from a variety of sources. As is the case with any research, always scrutinize for accuracy. The bottom-line here is that there should be no bounds in researching a political candidate as long as the research revealed is based on facts. Sorry Mitt.
Americans don’t heed warnings of a failing America because political leaders in America don’t lead, much less tell the truth or represent constituents. I want someone who knows history, the constitution, and true economics. Oh, and someone who is not afraid to tell it like it is. This is exactly what Congressman Ron Paul did ten years ago on the House floor. It’s ashamed that so many people demonize those who warn against failed government’s endless spending and freedom-killing legislation. Enjoy the video of Ron Paul’s predictions 10 years, that have all come to fruition.
