Little publicized by the lib-prog media are the actual details of the Republican caucus that just took place in Louisiana. The RINOs running the Republican Party, AS WELL AS the lib-progs in the media all would have people believe that the Republican Party is a unified mono-chromatic supporter of Romney. Such is far from the truth.
In the recently held Republican caucus in Louisiana, Ron Paul had garnered 111 delegates, to Rick Santorum’s 39 (even though he had dropped out), and to Romney’s 30. While Romney had been dominating the commercials, Ron Paul supporters had been steadily meeting with individual delegates to show them that Paul’s political philosophy and message is actually closer to what people want, even when the public is a little put off by the misrepresentation that the media has been heaping on him.
No impact on the political process. Louisiana GOP chairman Richard Villiere told all 111 Paul delegates that they would either vote to support Romney or they would not vote. The Party machine picks the candidate, not the elected delegates. These are new rules that they changed after the designee, Romney did not get the support that was exected. Villiere was all set to award all 46 of the electoral college delegates from Louisiana to Romney. So the Paul delegates executed a parliamentary procedure and voted to remove Villiere as the leader of the caucus. Motion carried and was seconded. He refused to leave so they turned their chairs to the back of the room and then nominated and elected Paul delegate Alex Helwig as the new chair of the caucus. Mr. Villiere was not pleased. He then called the Shreveport police who were in a no-win situation but decided to go with the known power and assaulted and threw Mr. Helwig out of the assemble hall. The video of this is still on Youtube and has not been yanked yet although given the predilection for left-wing censorship that Youtube has been doing, I am expecting it to miraculously vanish shortly.
Politics is so much more interesting that what is purported nad reported to be happening in the papers and on the tube. The Paul delegates have no chance of Ron Paul being elected. They know that. They still want a national stage where they can make the case to the country that they do not want the socialist empire that the lib-progs have been building and as well that they do not want the slightly watered down version of it that the Romney camp has been leaning towards. And regardless of which direction happens in November, that they do not want to be taxed to pay for either option. This is a message that neither the RINOs nor the DINOs that are running the 2 parties that have taken over our political process do NOT want the public thinking about and do not want the Paulites to have a national forum to trumpet.
In 1964, after the civil rights law was enacted, several of the state caucuses decided that they were not going to allow any of the newly voted non-white delegates to be involved in the political process or to represent their state in the national delegation. Only white delegates were to be sent to the electoral college. Anyone else was to be disenfranchised.
Little “r” republican is the new black.
