Republican Electors Threaten to Vote for Ron Paul Instead of Romney
Because of the archaic voting system used in the United States, voters do not actually vote for a candidate, but for a slate of state electors who are pledged to vote for that candidate if he or she wins the state. In most states, these electors are not legally required to vote for the candidate who won the state. In fact, there have been 87 instances in which an elector refused to vote for the presidential or vice-presidential candidate he or she was supposed to.

Two supporters of Ron Paul have said publicly they may not vote for Romney in the Electoral College in December. They, and others, have expressed frustration with party leaders over what they said were heavy-handed attempts throughout the campaign and the convention to deny Paul the nomination.

The two Paul supporters considering not voting for Romney are Ken Eastman of Nevada and Billie Zimmerman of Texas.

In addition, another Nevada elector, Ken Searles, says he may vote for Paul as a protest, but only if his vote doesn’t change the outcome of the election. And Kathleen Miller of Alaska plans to vote for Romney but said she might change her mind if GOP leaders engage in more “shenanigans.”

I do like the fact that the GOP is being called out on the shenanigans, and I like the fact that this couldhelp the two-party system we have be shown as a fraud. Doubtful, though....Too many people lack the give-a-crap to care.

There is a growing gap between grassroot conservatives and the republican establishment.

We have been saying for the last few months that the Republican party has been shooting itself in the foot.

I completely disagree with that thread. The Republican candidate wouldn't have to "act" more conservative if the Republican establishment wasn't obsessed with progressivism.

There is no party for an old school style limited government, fiscally responsible, freedom first conservative.

It's the opposite of what you wrote, not that the grassroots have moved too far right, and the candidate must adjust....but the republican establishment has moved too far left and the grassroots are having to bite their tongues and vote for the least progressive of two progressives.

Re: Republican Electors Threaten to Vote for Ron Paul Instead of Romney
Because of the archaic voting system used in the United States, voters do not actually vote for a candidate, but for a slate of state electors who are pledged to vote for that candidate if he or she wins the state. In most states, these electors are not legally required to vote for the candidate who won the state. In fact, there have been 87 instances in which an elector refused to vote for the presidential or vice-presidential candidate he or she was supposed to.

Two supporters of Ron Paul have said publicly they may not vote for Romney in the Electoral College in December. They, and others, have expressed frustration with party leaders over what they said were heavy-handed attempts throughout the campaign and the convention to deny Paul the nomination.

The two Paul supporters considering not voting for Romney are Ken Eastman of Nevada and Billie Zimmerman of Texas.

Archaic?

More like downright fucking awesome.

It's the only thing maintaining the "Republic" status of our country, seeing as how both major parties have now denied the people a represented voice.
