From John Tate, Ron Paul’s campaign manager, on convention shenanigans yesterday:
“Properly elected Ron Paul delegates were stripped from us. And when a motion was made to amend the Credential Committee’s report, it was ignored. Morton Blackwell, a longtime conservative activist and RNC Rules Committee expert, found himself indefinitely detained — along with the rest of the Virginia delegation.
The RNC bus driver responsible for transporting delegates somehow ‘got lost’ for well over an hour until a critical Rules Committee meeting adjourned. [The new rules adopted by that committee] are designed to make the Republican Party a top-down organization and strip power away from state parties and grassroots activists of every stripe. All efforts to vote down these onerous rules were ignored . . . “
Still believe in the god of democracy? Still believe that your vote “counts”? Still believe these same GOP hacks when they tell you that it is your “duty” to vote in order to sanctify their behavior?12:52 am on August 29, 2012 Email Thomas DiLorenzo
