The Romney-ites used the “Montana” plan to steal the final contested state – Nebraska – from clueless Ron Paul delegates. To be honest it was only marginally the delegates fault, once again the central campaign – most likely paid off – sabotaged them and bit off their heals.
The “Montana Cheat” is where the Romney campaign pre-organizes all their delegates and puts them on the ballot as “one slate” a unified clear list. Any other delegates – aka those for Ron Paul – would have to be added underneath. In the case of Montana people could vote for all their delegates just by clicking a single check box, but would have to click one checkbox for each Paul delegate listed individually.
When the national traitor throw in the towel campaign was contacted to asked if they wished to provide a slate, they refused. This wasn’t the first time they refused. As much as they feel that a slate is wrong and improper, the problem is the Romney-ites WILL do it at every turn. And good guys finish last. So it was no time for the Paul campaign to get namby pamby.
But it gets worse. Not only did Paul supporters have to try to defeat a pre-listed SLATE of Romney-ites, but the Paul campaign sent out ANOTHER defeat letter just before the vote. Now I ask you who in their right mind does such a thing. The sad truth is Paul did not want to be elected.
He writes “But because this email is so important, I wanted it to come directly from me.
For several weeks now, I’ve been up front about the fact that Mitt Romney has obtained enough delegates to secure the Republican nomination.
That fact hasn’t changed – and it’s not going to change.
Over the past few weeks, my staff and I have researched the numbers extensively.
We’ve come to the conclusion that even if by some miracle all delegates to the Republican Convention were unbound, I would receive approximately 300 votes at the National Convention – far short of the 1,144 needed to secure the Republican nomination.”
This is wrong on so many levels. First no one knows the true delegate count. Second Romney is encountering scandal after scandal, since the delegates are unbound Paul has a chance that Romney will self destruct before Tampa. This kind of throw in the towel letter has many people thinking he or his staff have made a deal.
But even after all this the delegates in Nebraska let us down.
One person summed it up thusly:
“Not one Paul Supporter at that convention even put forward a candidate for committeewoman man or chair! I didn’t hear his name once, no one stood up to give a speech about liberty. No one took a stand. I see nothing but cowardice in the face of adversity. For many people their hopes rides on this convention for more than just a plurality of del’s. Think about the Michigan soldier on tour in Saudi Arabia, or Romney taking a nice fat 100 million dollar check in June from his ‘supporters’. And Ron Paul won 2 delegates. So much for Live Free Or Die”
Nebraska – the Torture you or Send you to Iraq state. Yep. Its that bad out there.
