Did the GOP alienate enough Paul-leaning Republicans to lose the election? It is unlikely that any concrete data will ever confirm the extent to which the GOP alienated Paul-leaning Republicans, and whether these votes could have ultimately cost Romney and the Republican Party the election. However, there is plenty of circumstantial evidence that the establishment’s decision to reject and suppress Paul’s supporters and his limited-government ideology may have taken millions of potential votes away from Mitt Romney. Ron Paul received a significant percentage of the primary votes across the U.S. However, there have been numerous allegations of voter fraud and violations of primary and caucus procedures throughout the Republican Primary process that Paul’s supporters believe cost him a number of states. In addition to the scandals at the primary, the Romney campaign has been blamed with forcibly excluding and eliminating many Ron Paul delegates at the Republican National Convention (RNC) back in August 2012 in Tampa Bay. When these two factors of “strong-arming” delegates throughout the primary and convention process are combined, it is likely that many long-time Republicans that supported Ron Paul either stayed home or participated in write-in campaigns that in most cases will not be counted towards the final vote totals. These unknown vote totals, when combined with his support scattered among third party candidates such as the Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson and Constitution Party’s Virgil Goode, likely exceeded Obama’s margin of victory in a number of states.
Paul campaign manager Jesse Benton declined to speculate about the seating snubs except to quip: “I am glad so many of our delegates get to sit close together.” Yet others freely admitted the arrangement seemed intentional.
Election fraud has occurred in every state in the union, but what may be the worst case yet happened on Saturday in Washington State as GOP party 'officials' openly attempted to exclude Ron Paul delegates from participating in the 2nd District's Convention.
Illuminator is a good poster. He sticks to his guns and makes good points. Some don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like that.
Good. We'll never fix this mess until disaster forces us to. And Obama is just the man to get us there.
What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.
As if.........if the pubs wanted to win, they would have nominated Ron Paul, but they didn't. The Republican party is run by the same people the Democratic party is run by(bankers). They did win. They had both horses in the two horse race....how could they lose?
