How the GOP Stole the Nomination

August 31, 2012

A crescendo of establishment tyranny and epic last minute rules manipulation unfolded at the RNC, leaving hundreds of legally elected delegates and other Republicans, representing millions of others, disenfranchised and ready for a mass exodus from the Republican party.

After an entire election season of rules breaking in almost every state by so-called GOP “officials” and mainstream media manipulation of the process, many expected GOP establishment shenanigans at the RNC. But to watch them play out the way they did during Tuesday thru Thursday's proceedings fully cemented the reality that the establishment, regardless of whether Democrat or Republican, despite the people's wishes, will literally do anything they wish to insure the current "bankster" establishment structure stronghold, even to the detriment of the people.

The Republican Party has lost all hope, and the disrespect Paul supporters received ant the 2012 RNC will likely eventually be replied with a giant "I told you so."
State by state, since even prior to January's Iowa Caucus, the GOP establishment, in conjunction with the establishment's “mainstream” media, did everything in their power to fool the electorate into believing falsehoods during the entire process.

All over the country Ron Paul was winning the majority of the polls in 2011, leading up to the election season, but the media ignored the results and continued to pretend Ron Paul was a non-factor. Even openly ridiculing his political philosophies as “fringe, kooky or crazy,” as if the “news” was no longer expected to be an unbiased source of honest information. Members of the media would start rumors and establishment politicians would even stoop so low as to claim that if Paul should happen to win Iowa people should look to the second and third place finishers instead. If Paul should happen to win anything, they claimed, it would discredit that poll or caucus. Talk even emerged stating that Iowa should be reconsidered as the “First in the Nation” caucus, simply because Paul was the favorite to win. “Both” sides of the so-called two-party news machine were equally to blame as the dumbed-down American constituency joyfully played along as if 3rd grade childish political tactics are the norm and excepted behavior. Unfortunately, that just may be the case.

It started off with a stolen Iowa Straw Poll, an important and revealing early poll that witnessed Michele Bachmann literally buy the votes necessary to just edge out Ron Paul by only a few votes. Immediately, as if Paul didn't exist, Bachmann was touted as a “front-runner,” barely mentioning the second place Ron Paul, who should have won if not for the shenanigans. The media happily played along as if Bachmann won fair and square, yet ironically criticized the poll before hand when Paul was showing strong exit poll numbers. “If Paul wins,” establishment talking heads would echo, “wouldn't that discredit the straw poll?”

But when Bachmann seemingly won, all the talk about ridiculing the poll immediately ceased. Showing her candidacy's true strength, however, Bachmann would go on to get embarrassingly trounced in Iowa's first official caucus and subsequently dropped out of the race entirely. It was almost as if Bachmann was only in the race in the beginning to steal the Iowa Straw Poll from Paul, for the establishment, to steal any momentum that his candidacy would have enjoyed from the win.
