Message Subject Why Did The Ron Paul Re3volution Completely Fail?

Very simple.

You know the old saying "It's Not the People Who Vote that Count; It's the People Who Count the Votes"? Well, the GOP leadership proved that in spades this year.

From rigged primaries and caucuses, to secretly moving where county and district delegates were to be elected, to trying to change the rules for whether a candidate can be placed in nomination at the convention, to the physical kidnapping of the Virginia and Rhode Island delegates at the convention so that they missed a key vote, to the GOP allowing the main vote-getting candidate to personally approve or reject each and every delegate to the convention (starting in 2016) .... the list goes on and on.

The whole Ron Paul campaign was based on using honesty and integrity to try to change the party from the bottom up. But it is hard to be successful when you are facing massive corruption starting at the national level and continuing on to the sycophants at the state and local levels.

Yes I agree. But in the face of these obstacles the re3volution seems to have completely faded away.

At the daily paul site, very few supports are left and those that are argue about supporting Gary Johnson or not.

That site even changed its whole focus and took down Ron Paul's picture.
