RNC Disenfranchises Paul Delegates: Rigs Rules to Nominate Romney

The RNC’s rule change effectively disenfranchised Republicans supporting anyone other than the Establishment’s man and left 10 of Maine’s 24 delegates locked out of the process, preventing them from casting votes for Ron Paul.

Railroaded and rejected, the unseated Maine delegates walked out of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, leaving the convention in the hands of the predetermined winner and his proxies.

“It’s a disgusting, disgusting display of a hostile takeover from the top down,” said Maine delegate Ashley Ryan, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times. “It’s an embarrassment,” she’s quoted as saying.

Maine wasn’t alone in expressing its displeasure and disgust at the RNC’s pro-Romney rule manipulation

The convention rules were rigged to exclude Paul from being on the nominating ballot. Furthermore, even if there were more delegates for Romney at the convention (due to rigged State primaries) the GOP has basically walked all over the Ron Paul people who were there. They made no friends and they'll pay the consequences.

Vote For Gary Johnson the Libertarian candidate. Vote anyone who is not from the two main parties.
