Ron Paul Is Secretly Taking Over The GOP — And It's Driving People Insane
(Business Insider) -- by Grace Wyler --
By now, it is clear that the Maine caucuses were a complete mess.
Evidence is mounting that Mitt Romney's 194-vote victory over Ron Paul was prematurely announced, if not totally wrong. Washington County canceled their caucus on Saturday on account of three inches of snow (hardly a blizzard by Maine standards), and other towns that scheduled their caucuses for this week have been left out of the vote count. Now, it looks like caucuses that did take place before Feb. 11 have also been left out of final tally...
The Maine Republican Party won't decide which votes it will count until the executive committee meets next month. But Wead points out that even if Mitt Romney holds on to his slim lead, it will be a Pyrrhic victory.
"He will have disenfranchised all of these people," Wead said. "It could be a costly victory — it is a mistake."
The (alleged) bias against Paul may also be the product of an organic opposition to the libertarian Congressman and his army of ardent fans. Paul volunteers tend to be young and relatively new to party politics, and their presence has many state GOP stalwarts feeling territorial.
"People feel threatened — they don't want to see a bunch of kids who may have voted for Barack Obama take over," Wead said. "They feel a sense of ownership over the party — but there has to be an accommodation."
But state party machinations are already starting to backfire. The Paul campaign believes it has won the majority of Maine's delegates — and the perceived election fraud has galvanized Paul supporters to demand their votes be counted in the state's straw poll 'beauty contest.'
Caucus chaos has also proved to be fertile ground for Paul's quiet takeover of the Republican Party. Since 2008, the campaign and Paul's Campaign for Liberty PAC have made a concerted effort to get Paul sympathists involved in the political process. Now, tumult in state party organizations has allowed these supporters to rise up the ranks.
"We like strong party leadership when it comes from us," Paul campaign chair Jesse Benton told Business Insider. "Our people work very hard to make sure that their voice is heard."
The fruits of this labor are evident in Iowa, where Paul's former state campaign co-chair A.J. Spiker was just elected as the new chairman of the Iowa Republican Party. Spiker replaces Matt Strawn, who stepped down over this year's Iowa caucus dustup. In Nevada, the state chair has also resigned over caucus disaster, and several Ron Paul supporters are well-positioned to step up to fill the void. These new leaders not only expand Paul's influence at the state level, but also help protect Paul and his hard-won delegates from state party machinations as the delegate-selection process moves to district and state conventions, and eventually the Republican National Convention this summer.
"We are always trying to bring people into the party," Benton said. "I think that is a very positive thing for Republicans. Ron is the person who can build the Republican base, bring new blood into the party. That's how you build the party."
In Maine, the caucus disaster has made the state GOP prime for a Ron Paul takeover. And that means that Paul's hard-won delegates will be protected as the delegate selection process...MORE...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
Can the GOP be salvaged? I think it's possible if the Israel-first neocons, the Judeo-Christian Zionist charlatans, the Globalists gangsters, and the Wall Street banksters and corporatist money-worshippers who put filthy lucre over any and all principle are all eighty-sixed.
Remember, it was Lincoln's Republican Party that put an end to slavery, Zionism is the new slavery, only on a global basis, the Democratic Party is owned and operated by Jewish Zionists for their own greedy, elitist, neo-fascist, self-serving ends, so a party willing to go to war with Zionism on behalf of the vast majority of the People (and the vast majority of humanity) could go a long way in a Zionist-corrupted America teetering on the brink of self-destruction.
It's time to take off the gloves. The fact that there is no populist, America-first party that is righteously grounded in opposition to Zionism and Globalism, both of which are racist, means the vast majority of Americans are going completely un-represented, and don't even know that they're being put on the road to serfdom.
Look at Israel, an institutionally Jewish supremacist apartheid state. Look at these wars for Israel and the larger Zionist/Globalist racket: all predicated on the racist enterprise of enslaving humanity to the elitist, bankster-corporatist cartel. (Actually, in many ways they're misanthropic, given that most Whites are to be enslaved as well -- a concept that racist Zionist Jews love as much as they love the idea of slaughtering Arabs.)
Right now, the two parties are both only representing their precious Zionist, Globalist and Corporatist interests, and the elites of each have a gentleman's agreement not to call out the other on it's un-patriotic, anti-American treachery.
Once that hurdle is overcome, and these, Israel-first elites are called out for their treason, the flood gates will open.
That scares the left-right establishment to death, hence all of these totalitarian "homeland security" initiatives.
This is where the party of Lincoln's noble history of taking on a monstrously racist enterprise is key. God knows the Zionist-owned Democratic Party, itself contrived primarily of gangsters and whores, will never lift a finger in real opposition to its organized Jewish masters.
