WE CAN WIN

How we are winning with the delegate process explained in depth.

I was an administrator for the Democratic party for over 6 years and am well educated in the nomination process. I left the party to support Dr. Ron Paul, and assure you that I know what I am talking about.
Our founding fathers set the system up as it is to assure that there would be no false or fraudulent support for a candidate, thus forcing THE PEOPLE to become involved in the election process and to show actual support for their candidate.
 
They wanted to make sure they would protect us from VOTE FRAUD and to make sure that a candidate did not win a “beauty contest” but instead win an election based upon merit.
 
Any candidate and their supporters can do exactly what we are doing if they choose to do so.
I am sure from the reports we have received that McCain does not have real support or he would have the delegates he needs, registered as delegates, to vote for him in the upcoming conventions.
PLEASE, if you doubt my post, research it yourself here : http://www.gop.com/images/2008_Call_FINAL.pdf
 
PLEASE, EVERYONE, COPY AND SEND THIS TO THEIR EMAIL LISTS AND MEETUP HEADS AND ANY OTHER RON PAUL FORUMS.
 
This is an extremely needed read for anyone going to a convention for it will explain the language needed when passing resolutions, objecting and over all how the game is played by the current RNC rules : http://www.robertsrules.org/
 
If you can’t be a delegate because it is too late to register, you can still help us at the convention.

I know many of you are new to the election process but don’t worry, as I am going to go into how this all works. So read and then read again, if you need to.
 
Did you know that the delegates can actually vote to unbind their delegates that are bound by state rules? Did you know that delegates can actually overturn any previous vote? Did you know the delegates have control of the entire process?
Mass media (MSM) is not reporting how to become the nominee in a situation like this so I suggest that you stop getting your info from the MSM.
 
I know many of you are bummed about Dr. Paul not getting more votes in the states popular vote BUT THAT IS BECAUSE YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THE ELECTION SYSTEM WORKS : Let me explain to you the reality of how this functions to become the nominee.
 
First, stop looking at who wins each state’s popular vote. For most of the states, the vote by the people is really nothing but a straw poll and has no real bearing on who will become the nominee. The only way this matters is if one person receives 1191 delegates that are bound by state rules to be committed to a candidate. So if a candidate like McCain now has 906 delegates but he doesn’t reach 1191, WHICH HE WILL NOT, most of the delegates the state “awarded” him mean nothing. Keep in mind that in most of the states most of the people that represent the 906 for McCain are actually Ron Paul supporters.
NOW there is no possible way that anyone in the race can achieve this goal now because of the major split in state wins by the candidates.
 
Normally, Convention Delegates do not matter because the convention is not brokered and we would have a clear winner if someone has 1191 delegates. BUT THIS YEAR IS DIFFERENT. This will be a brokered convention – there is no way around it. Do you see how the Ron Paul campaign strategy will work?
 
When a candidate wins delegates by winning a primary, that does not mean there are actual people that are appointed a delegate, acting as delegates – these are virtual delegates.
 
What do I mean by virtual delegates: A virtual delegate is just a number – there are no actual people YET that will go and vote for the candidate who won the particular state at the national convention. We call these people convention delegates.
 
The actual delegates are voted on (in most states) at a statewide delegate caucus after the Primary (which is just a giant preference poll) Who can be delegates? Anyone. In closed Primary states they must be registered Republicans, in Open Primary states they can be Republicans, Democrats, or Independents.

And we have lots of delegates…
Out of the 2,380 delegates sent to Minneapolis St. Paul in September-
– 463 delegates are bound all the way through the convention. Some of those 463 are Ron Paul’s people.
– 565 delegates will be bound through one ballot. That is, they have to follow the results of the state election on the first ballot. After that, if no candidate has a majority of delegates, they are free to vote as they please, and McCain will not receive over 50% on the first ballot.
– 383 will be bound through two ballots, then they are free to vote for whom they wish.
– 318 will be bound through three ballots, then they are free to vote for whom they wish.
I am not going to list every state and what the breakdowns are, just do the math from these numbers or look them up for yourself here : http://www.gop.com/Images
 
The bottom line is, less than 1/2 of the delegates are bound by state party rules. Now do you see how we can win this thing?
 
So what happens now, you ask? Look at the number of delegates that Dr. Paul has that are uncommitted to the other candidates and will support him These delegates are not decided by the popular vote (straw poll) of the people. Since no one will have enough delegates to skate them through to the nomination we now must look at how many delegates, NOT VOTES, but delegates Dr. Paul has that are 100% uncommitted to the other candidates and will be 100% for Dr. Paul since they are free to vote for whom they wish.
 
This race will go all the way to the national convention, as there is no other way for someone to receive the nomination until then.
The Republican National Convention will convene its annual Winter Meeting – and voters will continue to cast their ballots in the nation’s primaries and caucuses. Candidates for delegate and alternate delegate to the convention will be elected – and thousands of convention participants and guests will begin planning their trips to Minneapolis-Saint Paul The first week in September, 2008.
 
SO WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?
This means that all of the people that registered to become a delegate for Dr. Paul can go to the convention and cast their vote for Dr. Paul. Now think about what I just said. Do you think for one second that all the people that voted for Dr. Paul and filed to become a delegate will not show up at the convention to vote for the good doctor? Of course they will, just like they battled the rain and the sleet and the 15 below zero winter weather to knock on doors and wave signs spreading our message.
 
Now I assure you that even though we didn’t win the popular vote in many states, WE DID PICK UP THE MAJORITY OF DELEGATES OVER ALL THE OTHER CANDIDATES IN MOST STATES. So yes, they won the straw poll, and we won what counts – which is delegates.
 
Q: Doesn’t Dr. Paul need to WIN 5 states to be on the ballot at the convention for the nomination?
A: NO, THIS IS NOT TRUE for people were just confused on how the process actually works.
We only need the majority of delegates from 5 states to be put on the ballot, NOT THE POPULAR VOTE OF 5 STATES, and I assure you we have picked up the majority of uncommitted delegates for Dr. Paul in more than 5 states!
 
Do any of you remember seeing posts by myself and many others that said BECOME A DELEGATE? There is still time in most states to become a delegate for the convention and we are picking up more of them every day.

So please STOP! …worrying so much because you did not understand how the election system works and you might have thought we lost, didn’t you? I assure you we have not!
The fact is Dr. Paul is a genius in his strategy and we are further ahead in delegates than you think and we can win the nomination.
I hope this gives you a better understanding of how we have been winning, even though most of you thought we were not.
NOW LET’S KEEP WORKING. FILE TODAY AND BECOME A DELEGATE BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!
