According to Whiteout Press:

Romney Nomination in doubt – Brokered Convention likely

“April 24, 2012. Des Moines. Two networks yesterday, CNBC and MSNBC, broadcast a little known fact – Ron Paul appears to be winning the Republican nomination for President. When the popular Texas Congressman repeatedly assured supporters that the race was about delegates, not beauty contests, he apparently knew what he was talking about. Now, after three more states locked in delegates to the GOP nominating convention – CO, MN and IA – indicators point to a brokered convention with a possible, even probable, Ron Paul victory. . . .  “Keep in mind that every major US news outlet continues to show Texas Congressman Ron Paul in last place for the GOP nomination and with only 75 delegates. View Politico’s delegate tracker as an example. They show Rep. Paul winning 3 delegates in Colorado, 17 in Minnesota and 1 in Iowa. Those networks however, have based their numbers on which candidate each state’s delegates are pledged or likely to vote for. The more important number is who they actually do vote for. And in that race, the only race that matters, Ron Paul is shocking the political world.”

The video below is from Rachel Maddow and touches on the same phenomenon:  Mitt Romney does not have the GOP nomination wrapped up because Ron Paul may have outsmarted all of the other Republican candidates.  Her video is both amusing and satisfying in that it implies that all the hustlers, con-artists and political geniuses who presume to run the Republican Party may have been beaten by one wise, old man.

Imagine what the public response will be if Ron Paul “beats” the Republican Party elite.  It wouldn’t be a mere political victory.  It would be the triumph of substance over style.   It would be evidence that this seemingly frail senior citizen–who doesn’t “look” or even sound “presidential”–is one cagey, powerful man.

If Paul can turn the GOP nomination into a “brokered convention,” it will be absolute evidence that he’s the smartest s.o.b. in the race.  A brokered convention would inspire enormous public confidence in Paul’s abilities.  A brokered convention will prove that not only Paul, but the People can beat the “machine”.   If Paul can cause a brokered GOP convention, I believe America will stampede to support him–and I don’t think the mainstream media will be able to ignore or deny that stampede.

If Romney wins the nomination, the November election should be close.  Obama might win.  Romney might win.

But if Paul wins the GOP nomination, I think he’ll inspire the American people with so much hope and optimism that he’ll beat Obama in a landslide.

    When Ron Paul wins the presidency, I think it would be a nice gesture if Ron find’s a place for Mitt in his cabinet, or rather, in his broom closet. Take a hike Romney, we’re not interested in your status quo garbage.

    Al, I SINCERELY PRAY to the LORD that you & Rachel are correct, (as I have little doubt that Dr. Paul’s CERTAINLY savvy enough to pull this off — IF allowed to).

    And, THAT is the glitch in the “very best laid plans of mice and men”! Will he be allowed to even REACH the convention, much less disrupt their grievously evil machinations!? May God HELP us! We IN DEED live in evil days! CRY unto the LORD for Salvation…and work to free us, like you’ve never worked before…as your very FREEDOMS depend upon Dr. Paul’s victory!

    If Ron Paul beats all Republican challengers and in fact becomes president; and if, as president, he in fact attempts to impliment vigorously what’s he’s promised to impliment; my only fear is that those who have assassinated, disabled physically or by reputation, threatened, dictated to and otherwise intimidated any past president will most certainly go after this anti-establishment knight of right with so disgruntled and impudent a fury as to make all past eliminations and dismemberments of knights of right seem docile.

    Those forces are stronger than ever…they’ve not gone away gently into that good night; they have, throughout the Republican primary circus, shown their malicious teeth through the mainstream, right and left media…and they will not give Ron Paul a free pass at their almighty expense.

    Dom, you’re ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! BUT! (even though that IS a genuine likelihood), the more ACTUAL PROBLEM is not the “VICIOUS LEFT” [the “POWER ELITE” as Dennis Cuddy labeled them], — BUT!

    It’s the “lame center”.

    That, “Oh well, can’t we just go along, to get along” crowd. It’s the “Hey Mabel! Wat’s fa dinna? Who’s play’in ta’nite? Hey! Wers ma beer???” Archie B., (too lazy to pay attention, therefore too ignorant to know what’s happening, therefore to stupid to KNOW who’s the BEST candidate), crowd.

    AND then add in the: “Sen~or, pu’favor, puede encen~a mi comma votar?” crowd…[the illegals].

    Those two groups make up the VAST MAJORITY of 18 to 30 year olds…[we spend MORE than 38 Billion $$$ on the illegals alone, yearly], along with the zelots of the University “OCCUPOOP” radicals. THESE folks are the more likely danger…(not to underestimate the “VOTING MACHINE MANIPULATORS”….).

    Here’s the EVEN MORE serious reality, (that TOTALLY DOOMS the “KNIGHTS OF RIGHTS”): The simple FACT that, there’s such a HUGE population dependency upon Government largess, that simply THAT BLOCK VOTE will doom him & his administration, [before it even gets inaugurated], because they will HATE HIM AND HIS ADMIN, based on the FACT that the ADMIN was going to cease the “WELFARE STATE”, in order to pull us out from under the — {sorry, hate to tell you, but it’s 30 T} National debt!

    These “ignorant masses” REALLY DO exist…and they REALLY WILL go looking for “their FAIR share”, when those checks stop arriving.

    BE PRE-pared, and BE PRE-DEFENSIBLE, because, History is replete with the FACT that, when an Empire can no longer “give them cake” — or “bread & circus” — the so-called “rabble”, (entitlement dependents), will TAKE TO THE STREETS…seeking their own! And TAKE what they DEEM “their own”…forcibly! — VIS-A-VIS Kosovo — Bosnia-Herzegovina! BAD JUJU!

      Right, Christian Gains, its all a big_if_, but that’s as its not supposed to be…yes, there are many on government dole and yes many more are just plain ignorant…and again, that’s as it should not be and always has been…in fact, with only 30% of registered voters now casting ballots every election for decades the presidency has been decided by a small minority of the populace and that minority is always singing the “I’m voting for the lesser of evils” blues, deceiving themselves by never choosing outside of the two party with one head corrupt system offering of unadulterated, bought and paid for, establishment puppets.

      But Ron Paul really seems to have a chance despite what the mainstream, right and left media claim.

      That’s what I mean by even bringing the issue I wrote about up…he’s the only candidate (seemingly) not in anyone’s pocket yet many who used to sing those blues I mentioned are gravitating toward him…and all those_ifs_might become fact…and if they do – watch out Ron Paul.

      What are we gonna do if it happens…are we gonna let ourselves be silenced and cowed by another Warren Report? Another 9/11 Commission report which the majority pretend to believe so as to get off the hook about doing anything about criminals continuing to do as they please with us and our country?

      If Ron Paul gets elected and then martyred and the American people take it with a whimper instead of the revolution the murder of “the people’s choice” deserves, then we deserve to be the slaves who the handful of traitorous felons running things want us to be…simple as that in my mind.

      Bon Chance, Ron Paul.

        Yep, I agree Dom! As a oft quoted Philosopher once stated: “Those who refuse, (or fail), to learn from History, are doomed to repeat it’s errors”.

        But, I must add that I don’t see any way that this Nation can avoid a “French style Revolution” & Social meltdown with catastrophic violence and anarchic divisions.

        A 4 way division of our National Community is already well established:

        1] The black community,
        2] the Muslim Community,
        3] The Asian Community, and lastly,
        4] The white community.

        I have NOT referred to any form of AMERICAN Community, because that’s pretty well lost, at present — although the “TEA PARTY Movement, and the “PATRIOT MILITIAS” MIGHT be the last remnants of the American Community.

        And, the reality that the rioting, pillaging, plundering, and Social upheaval we saw in Greece & some parts of Europe, is coming here sooner than later, is amplified in it’s dangerous nature, by several million gun owners, of ALL 4 Communities.

        I don’t see the Asian Community, OR the Cuban Community as fracturing away, as completely as the Black community will, (whole heartedly led by “Luis’s Legions” of WELL TRAINED & EQUIPPED &, ARMED to the teeth, Nation of Islam Militias).

        The most likely scenario that History gives us, is the consistent response of “ENTITLEMENT ADDICTS” (regardless WHAT the “entitlements be), to the loss of their “entitlements”.

        They ALWAYS go to the streets, and begin to foment violent resistance to ANY thing that gets in their way of achieving their goals of “gettin dey faya share!”

        Then, add in the Latino element, (especially the illegals), and you’ve got a seriously dangerous & volatile mix, which WILL result in blood flowing.

        And, once THAT begins, the next stage is the Declaration of “Martial Law”. But!

        This time around, there are millions of well trained, war hardened, and experienced Warriors that will NOT accept it’s legitimacy…AND…we’ve got 1000’s+ of “Contractors”, {politically correct term for: money hungry, blood thirsty mercenaries}, who’ll hire out to the highest bidder…and wontonly kill WHOEVER gets in their tracts.

        Yes siree, bob! We got us a REAL humdinger of a “powder keg” here…AND THEN!

        There’s the triple headed monster of the impact of: 1] trillions of $$$ of debt default, and then 2] the reaction, [political and Military] of our creditors, and 3] the “sleeper cells” that will immediately go to work, and BOOM!

        I promise you, RON PAUL is SERIOUSLY the BEST part of our future, no matter what happens to him.

        MUCH more SERIOUS REALITIES are rapidly APPROACHING, and we cannot move fast enough to avoid the impact & resultant consequences. We will just have to do our best, to do our duty, to God & country — (except THIS TIME it’ll be: God & Community).
