WaPo: The Ron Paul Revolution Will Not be Happening

Thanks Jesse.

WaPo says:
Texas Rep. Ron Paul will neither speak nor be formally nominated at the Republican National Convention, Politico reports. Despite months of organizing by Paul supporters at caucuses and state conventions, Mitt Romney’s lawyers have successfully kept Paul from getting the delegates from five states he would need for a floor nomination. The final blow came Thursday in Maine, when the Republican National Convention agreed that Romney supporters should get half of Paul’s 20 delegates.

Paul spokesman Jesse Benton disputed the idea that Paul was outmaneuvered but acknowledged the result. “Dr. Paul won’t be nominated because [we] came up short on winning five states of unbound delegates, not because of any lawyers,” he said. ”We negotiated, fought and got additional delegates seated for Dr. Paul.”
Of course, the liberty movement continues to grow and has nothing to do with any negotiations between Jesse Benton and Mitt Romney operatives.

  1. As it appears now, political parties are losing their effectiveness. What concerns me most is that ideas will be muted and we'll resort to fists and shouting and even worse. Given that Mittens' campaign has hijacked Paul's campaign in the most dastardly ways and Obama has his own militant thugs in the form of unions and other groups... THESE ARE OUR SUPPOSED LEADERS. Zimbabwe here we come!!!
