GOP Roll Call Convention Vote Is A Sham

I was saddened to see the roll call vote at last nights RNC Convention turn into an exercise of raw political power. Who does the RNC think they are...the Orange County GOP Central Committee? They need to learn how to count votes. It's one thing to get beat in a fair fight, but for the RNC to try(and succeed) to silence almost all of the Ron Paul delegates at the convention and pretend there were no dissenting voices in that hall...well it was pretty pitiful to watch. But that's alright, I'm just gonna file this event away in my memory bank and use it to galvanize supporters of our movement...The Campaign For Liberty. It was just so obvious that the McCain people were worried sick that Ron Paul might mess up the script of their well planned silencing of him. The Secret Service is going around confiscating stuff from Ron Paul delegates. They wouldn't even give him access to the floor of the convention! This is a man that raised over $35 million dollars and has brought in hundreds of thousands of young new supporters of the party. Then they had the gall to ask us for our list of supporters. Simply amazing.

On the flip side, I thought Sarah Palin gave a great speech. She has definitely energized our party. I just got home from Minneapolis and I will have a post up about my last couple of days hopefully up by tonight or tomorrow at the latest.

    And the choreographed one at the Dem Convention was an equal sham.

    How did you like Nancy Pelosi at
    the end of this video?

    "All those opposed say no2/3rds of the candidates..."

    (no space between no and 2/3)
