For example...in Massachusetts Romney got 72% and Paul was in 3rd with 10%. Yet Paul supporters say that the guy who got more than 7 times as many votes should get less delegates. They say the people must be silenced. They say democracy must be killed.
Ron Paul supporters aren't saying that. That is your twisted, misguided perception. Ron Paul supporters say follow the rules. But then again according to you, rules are for the other guy right?

You called me names, but the funny thing is, you are the one that is wrong. We have been a Representative Democracy from 1776 with the 2nd Continental Congress. Yes, we are currently a "Constitutional Republic" but one that uses "Representational Democracy."

Anyways, we weren't talking about this country were we? We were talking about the GOP Presidential Convention. A private entity with its own rules. Where they may choose to allow a form of Democracy to help make the selection of their nominee. Ron Paul supporters are trying to block this, because they need to silence the people to get him as the nominee.
Ron Paul supporters said to follow the rules in place. That's the problem with people like you who want to rewrite the rules on a whim because you want to make it about what you want. Sorry princess, the rules aren't in place for you specifically. The rules apply to everyone. The sooner you understand that the quicker you'll get it.

You need to look in the mirror. Ron Paul struggles in large part from his fanatics.
Because you dont believe in personal responsibility is not the fault of Ron Paul supporters. Because you just said you get easily distracted and cannot follow a candidates policies because supporters get in the way is your fault.

Loveshiscountry, Ron Paul supporters WERE caught trying to break the rules many times.

Ron Paul's strategy is to disenfranchise the people by doing their best to circumvent the popular votes and doing their best to unbind delegates that are bound to popular votes. This is a fact. Ron Paul's strategy is to remove the will of the people from the equation. This must be really embarrassing for you, since you avoid it.

What are you blind? Ron Paul supporters are bragging about how he will can get more delegates out of Massachusetts despite Ron Paul finishing in 3rd with 10% and Romney getting 72%. Good for you Ron Paul supporters, you don't want the public to have their say!

You must be in complete shock!


What rules were we caught trying to break? Sure there is a link out there someplace explaining your take.
Desperation leads to irrational thinking.

Our strategy is to remove the political establishments corruption, from the equation. Seems to be working like clock work.

I clearly didn't say that they don't follow politics at all. I said most people have lives, careers, kids and can't run around to conventions with ear pieces in like the tin foil hat crowd and college kids can. So Mr. disenfranchise the populace, how many hours per month should someone follow politics before you give them the right to vote? Just curious how oppressive you are.

You tin foil hatters posted some of the links. complaining that college students weren't allowed to vote despite having Student IDs. Student IDs don't even prove residency let alone being registered to vote. Ron Paul supporters are actually some of the least informed people out there, which is why they fall for so many conspiracies.

moving pains,
True or False: The GOP makes its own convention rules and interprets its own rules independent from the National Government.

True or False: The US Government is a Constitutional Republic that uses Representative Democracy.

You were wrong on both of these the first time, lets do it like this to see if you can get it right this time.

The public is having their say. Completely opposite of the establishments programmed diebold machine choice.

Funny how actual breathing human beings, are different than a computer generated outcome.

Only a person with severe issues would think that every poll/entrance poll/exit poll conducted by everyone from universities, media, and private companies have been drastically skewed. Polls show that Ron Paul has been finishing where he is expected to finish.

Keep believing in nonsense, because it helps you feel better about supporting the guy who is trying disenfranchise the masses.
