The Ronulans Have Not Gone Away
Much as we might wish they would. Read this
Twelve of 13 available national delegate spots went to Paul supporters
Saturday. They join the 20 Paul supporters among 24 delegates elected
previously at GOP congressional district conventions. The Paul forces
might have made a clean sweep Saturday, but for Paul backer Don Huizenga
stepping aside to assure U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, a former
presidential candidate, a seat with her state's delegation.
What's the big deal about that? Well, the Paulbots, frustrated at the polls, are turning their attention to state conventions, attempting to steal the nomination

The person who posted that is a crackpot Holocaust Denier and Ron Paul supporter, but.... he was right about Minnesota.

Ron Paul delegates to the RNC will support the nominee. However,
integral to that support is holding the candidate and the party to the
fundamental principles of limited government and personal and economic
freedom. Constancy to principle is the ultimate loyalty.
Note, however, what he carefully does not say: Ron Paul delegates to the RNC will support Mitt Romney. They have no intention of supporting anybody other than Dr Paul. Their goal is to get to the convention, change the rules so that they are not bound to the primary winner in their state, and subvert the will of the Republican voters.
Ron Paul supporters are committed, and they ought to be. They are determined to win this nomination by hook or by crook, and so far crook seems to be leading.
