    Robin Koerner: Ron Paul Won

    Delegates from Nevada tried to nominate Mr. Paul from the floor, submitting petitions from their own state as well as Minnesota, Maine, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. That should have done the trick: Rules require signatures from just five states. But the party changed the rules on the spot. Henceforth, delegates must gather petitions from eight states.

    *laughs*

    Boy I tell you want... I think the republicans are TRYING to lose... lol

    What, exactly, is the point of trying to nominate someone who did not win a single state in the primaries, except to be assholes?

    You don't see Santorum or Gingrich or any of the others being sore dicks about losing. Just Ron Paul the whiny little bitch.

    Yes, by all means, lets nominate the guy who didn't win shit in the primaries. That would certainly be the will of the people, huh :rolleyes:

    I'm thinking those delegates weren't doing what their constituents voted. Shame on them. I hope the entire delegation gets uninvited next time.

    As much as I like Ron Paul on most issues, he's off the rails when it comes to foreign policy... and a majority of Americans get it. He needs to just go away already. We don't want him.

    He should run as an independent. Even as a Democrat, I am weary of the two party system.

    I honestly think Mitt just lost the GE. The base of the Republican party just lost most of the people under 50 years old, you have about 2 elections until the Republican party is literally dead due to actually getting old and dying.

    Bye Republican party, here's us looking to the future that you’re not in.

    I agree with you on his fording policy. It's very naive. I do think we should mind our own business a hell of a lot more than we do, but I think that to be totally non-interventionist is wishful thinking.
