WIN!

Paul supporters score near sweep of national delegates | Capitol View | Minnesota Public Radio

Now come on lets hear the crying over RP supporters going against the will of the people. Ya know maybe its just me that realizes. The people who vote in the beauty contest do so because of who the media is pushing that week. Obviously they don't care enough to go to the conventions and make sure their candidate wins the delegates so,no reason to cry and complain the RP supporters are loyal to the grave to our candidate.

Paul supporters have said repeatedly that they are likely to back presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney in November but they say they want to send a message that candidates should stick to constitutional principals.

LOL yeah...I ain't one of them and neither are the thousands of RP supporters I know of. Media just trying to fluff their piece...

I just returned home from the convention. We could have taken the 13th spot on a second ballot, but the Paul campaign decided to give one spot to Michele Bachmann as a courtesy to the MN GOP.

The second ballot would have just been Michele Bachmann vs a Paul supporter. Both had just under the required 50% on the first ballot. The Paul campaign talked the Paul supporter into ceding the last spot to Bachmann. She was not even at the Convention.

Romney most likely never had the popular vote anyway... Those Diebold voting machines were compromised for sure... as for the hand written ballots... we all know what happened in Iowa and Maine...

LOL...you all are hilarious. Are you suggesting that electronic voting machines and/or miscounting of handwritten ballots are giving Romney the popular vote in the states he wins?

Why was Romney leading in the polls prior to the primaries/caucuses in virtually every state he won (if not in every state he won in which polls were conducted)? Were the pollsters a part of this magnificent conspiracy as well?

Regardless, this thread is about Minnesota, a state in which Santorum won the popular vote by a large margin.

If you really think Santorum won... then where were his delegates?... Nowhere because they don't exist...

I don't wish to paint this into an all or nothing "cartoon" reality. However, if you want to see what has been happening in elections with Machines, including the MCM polls and the NEP. Go check out my thread on this topic. Goldman Sachs US Election investment in this forum. It is devoted to nothing, but documenting this topic.

Ballot stuffing by Romneyites was what happened and it was ALLOWED. There was zero,zip, nada attempt to stop it. This is all documented. 'Fraid not GOP and Romneyites!!!
