The will of the people...

In Maine - Maine Results - Primaries - 2012 Election Center - Elections & Politics from CNN.com

In Nevada - Nevada Results - Primaries - 2012 Election Center - Elections & Politics from CNN.com

In Nevada Romney got more than 2 1/2 times as many votes as Paul!!!

Some other states where these shenanigans (to use the terminology of Paulbots) been occurring...

Louisiana - Louisiana Results - Primaries - 2012 Election Center - Elections & Politics from CNN.com

In LA, Paul received just 6% of the vote.

ME adjourns for the day. Ballots are "compromised". They need to print new ones. Paul supporters took the secretary and the chair. But things ended messier than NV. Tomorrow will be a new day and a new fight.

NV had a messy start after Romney bussed in 400 people who arrived later as "guests" and started to mess with the voice votes. After lunch, they cleansed the floor of non-delegates and now things are more level-headed. Ron Paul gave an epic speech which brought 80% of the room to their feet.

It is the Romneyites who are forced to cheat because they can't seem to win by playing by the rules. At least nobody can say Paul delegates aren't playing by the rules and doing everything above board.

Regarding the 'will of the people". It is pretty obvious Paul has more followers than Romney. Romney may have more money but that doesn't equal delegates who know the rules.

How do you know as many people as reported actually voted for Romney? The MSM has been lying if not totally clueless about the delegate process. Whose to say the popular vote results weren't manipulated in favor of Romney too? Look at how they obviously were in states that were totally botched like Iowa and Maine?

There are problems with the vote in every election, every year. It's not good, but it's a reality that we need to aim to fix. I think the fact thqt the polls match pretty well with the final results is enough proof for me. Unless all the pollsters in the country are in cahoots with each other and with every mainstream media source. But even then, if Paul has internal polling that shows otherwise, he is welcome to present it!

I will grant that whenever Paul wins delegates while getting crushed in the popular vote he has indeed earned those delegates fair and square, and through the proper methods. My problem is how people complain that Romney cheats and then post links (or in this case pictures) that don't seem to prove anything.

Look at the horrible economy and all the people who have died in the Middle East because of big government. Still laughing? If so you must have real good stuff.

They tried exactly the same thing at the Colorado Convention, printing and distributing thousands of fake Ron Paul slates with Romney delegates. It completely backfired. We called them out on it from the stage and everyone knew what they were doing before the voting. Do I sense some signs of desperation from the "presumed nominee", as the prostitute media call him?

If golden boy-Romney's campaign is such a fait accompli, why is he pulling these stunts???

And then the GOP hacks wonder why we don't trust Romney and just "fall in line" and "unite" for the "good of the party". Romney and his GOP cronies are the biggest lying and cheating scum of the earth. Fuhhhkkk them.
