‘Lawyers for Ron Paul’ sue GOP over delegate dispute

Ron Paul not winning the GOP nomination isn’t stopping some of his supporters.The Texas congressman now has a group fighting for him called “Lawyers for Ron Paul.” The group, which isn’t associated with Paul’s campaign, has a problem with bound delegates being forced to vote for Mitt Romney and have filed a lawsuit. Austin Petersen, director of production for Freedom Work, joins us with more.

do some of us not choose to be in the RNC?? And if we make that choice, are we not bound by their bylaws?

Jay Straw
Guest

er, don't some of us choose. I meant, The ones that choose to be in the RNC, voluntary, should be bound by the RNCs bylaws, no? And if they don't choose, why should the gov't get involved?

I think the word your looking for is "TRAITORS"!…Ron Paul 2012!!!

No —the Founders did NOT have any use for democracies which they condemned and dismissed as being as short in their lives as violent in their deaths. Voter fraud is absolutely pandemic in this country…Devvy Kidd among others has fully documented this nationwide fraud. The punishment for anyone caught engaging in ballot or other election fraud needs to be brutal enough so as to strike the fear of God into the breast of any who would feel tempted to indulge–it wouldn't stop but sharply drop

This guy who they were interviewing is a fake. He said "Rand should go along to get along" with the Republican Party while downplaying the lawsuit the whole time. If he was a true Ron Paul supporter he wouldn't agree w/ sacrificing principle to go along to get along. He's a total fake just like Jack Hunter, we need to get rid of these imposters in the Liberty Movement.

Let's play by their rules and cheat too.

Austin Petersen is part of the Jack Hunter/Rand Paul clique that wants to play nicey nice with neo-con war criminals for political expediency while throwing the principles that attracted so many people to the movement to the wayside, these people need to be exposed and then promptly forgotten.

@VeteranJTN ugh dude I hate Austin Petersen with a passion, he's an asshole in real life.

@wonderming1 I don't trust him either.

He's FULL OF CRAP!!! They are seeking a declaratory statement and protective order that states unequivocally that “all delegates from every state are unbound and free to vote their conscience at state and national conventions, and any attempt to coerce, intimidate or threaten
delegates under color of law, in violation of Title 42 USC Section 1971 will be harshly legally
punished." It's already FEDERAL LAW that they are unbound!!!

annebeck58

This guy does not get it. The "rules" of the party ALSO state that delegates are NOT bound. This was settled in 2008, when lawyers for the RNC decided that voters could not be coerced to vote ROMNEY (of all people). What was good then is good now.
And, it is against FEDERAL ELECTION LAWS to force any delegate to vote for ANY particular candidate. Why do you have this, "not a lawyer", guy on here? Why not call the attorneys FOR PAUL? I saw fraud in MY precinct and I won't let it go, ever!

annebeck58
Guest

He is full of crap. He did state he's "not a lawyer" and should not have his word accepted as any sort of knowledgable guy on the issues. WHY is RT not asking Mr Gilbert or Dave Callaghan, rather than this turd? who IS this guy and why does HE think he's the authority on any of this? I've read Robert's Rules, and before the suit came up, I wrote a post on "Let's NOW talk Rule-11" (and how it knocks Romney out). This guy does not know the law, at ALL,and he's not even a REP. So- meh &… Read more »

BTW: if you want to read what I wrote, months back on rule-11, check out my wordpress site: annebeck58.wordpress (dawt) com. It explains the rule, which would knock-out Romney, completely, for COLLUSION with the State's GOP. I wrote it right after Nevada screwed their own delegates (or tried to).
This guy is a real idiot and tool for the adminsitration. He'd vote for Rom if he had RAND on the ticket? jerk. RAND is NOT RON and Ron IS a REPUBLICAN, as are WE.

annebeck58
Guest

I hate that he even shares his name with the great town I live in.
I still don't get why RT would not interview the lawyers for Paul (supporters and delegates) rather than this tool. I mean, really; he had nothing real (valid) to add and only yakked on about something he knows nothing of.
I am sure Mr Gilbert and Callaghan and even Dr K would be happy to answer questions. Is RT going lame-stream now, or what? Why would they not go to the SOURCE if they wanted the truth??

annebeck58
Guest

Oh, jeezzz.. NO WONDER.
Jack Hunter should not even be paid any mind. Same goes for this tool.
These idiots who think they are Libertarians (as in the party) are closer to neo-cons than ANY REAL REPUBLICAN.. This guy is not conservative, considering his love for Rand, and I am sure he's of the same ilk that will do anything for a buck… like talk badly about Ron Paul AND his support. What idiots.

annebeck58
Guest

Don't worry. Ron Paul's (sometimes stealth) delegation IS working very hard to learn the rules and stay on top of all of this. From what I know, of the Texas team, Paul is going to take this… and I include our chairman, Steve Munisteiri, who was served by L4RP, and said he, "welcomed the suit". I don't think most delegates for Paul will simply go with Romney. it would be going against everything they believe!

annebeck58
Guest

And, why would anyone mark your comment as spam? It speaks to the topic at hand, is not calling-out any group of people (other than maybe Neo-cons, who need to be called out), and is intelligent and well-put.
Why would anyone vote it down OR make it "spam"? Was it Mittens and all of his children or what?
Oh, and the RNC must give 30 days notice prior to convention for ANY rule-change. Otherwise, the change is ILLEGAL (and usually immoral, too). These last-minute rule-changes do NOT fly!

annebeck58

This is why the USA is not a democracy but is a REPUBLIC.
You would think this tool would, at least, get that right.

Yet, we want to "spread Democracy" everywhere else? At the same time, these jerks for the Neo-CONS are voiding votes, dropping votes from the actual totals, and flipping votes, IN ALL STATES. We are not being treated fairly while we drop bombs on people in other nations for the same thing? we KILLED Saddam Hussein for essentially this, while Neocons are NO better? Kooky.

annebeck58

Dude; really? I think everyone saw it the first time. Telling everyone to add you is probably having the exact opposite effect.
I may have gone to your page before i saw how many times you added this note. Now, I am going to NOT check-out what you have to say, only because you seem desperate for adds. Say something worth reading and it won't be marked as the SPAM it is. (NO I did not mark as spam, but i opened to see why others had. Yeesh.)

I don't know if it's possible to lose this suit. I've read the laws and I have the suit filings on my computer. We (supposedly) have drawn a great judge who really cares about all rights of every American. If this is a valid observation, we will have to win.
I believe Monday will mark the 2-week point from when the suit was filed, and though it's a holiday weekend, I expect good news MONDAY. Keep your eyes AND ears open!

annebeck58

But, even if it were a separate club, not restrained by laws (and sorry, but they are working under the color of law), that may be a valid point. It's not valid or legitimate.. same as what each state's GOP and the RNC have done, in colluding with Romney to knock out the Ron Paul delegates. The suit is NOT for Ron Paul. It's for US. It's our voices silenced and our monies taken to be a part of this; they tried to knock us out and they cannot do this, legally. Club or NOT. It's still America

annebeck58
Guest

OH, by the way, the RNC is NOT a private club! The RNC is subject to ALL Election LAWS. Each state's GOP is a private club, but they must also obey the laws of the land. And, they have not. They have defrauded us, the voters who participated (and especially those of us who PAID DUES) in their charade. Learn the law if you want to speak to the law! Otherwise you sound just like this idiot, "Austin– NOT A LAWYER" guy.

annebeck58
Guest

Hey– wake up. Ron Paul is suing NOBODY, We, the voters and the delegates who side with Paul and his stance, are suing for having our votes discounted and our voices silenced. If you would pay attention to whats really going on, it might not be so, "hilarious".
Get a good rest, get up and read up on what's really happening, and then say what you want. But, it is NOT RON PAUL filing suit. It is US and we have good cause for doing so. Yeesh, guy.

Johnson is not more electable.
It's all a big fraud and parts were perpetrated and perpetuated by some certain folk within the Ron Paul campaign.
THIS is why Jesse Benton, as well as others within the campaign, have been so silent. THEY have also beeen sued.. as is just.

What makes you think the courts are any less corrupt than the GOP, or especially the RNC? Your toils will see no fruition in any of them, and certainly the emotional strain won't be healthy. My proposal is all of us following our vocations so we may enrich eachother's lives through trade and voluntary arrangements. We do this w/o the assistance, approval, or disapproval of the apparatus of oppression, we should not even acknowledge it. IMO 🙂

I completely agree.
Ron Paul is as close to perfect as we're going to get.
Rombama is NOT A CHOICE and I only hope people will support their own delegations as they go to Florida to vote PAUL and ONLY PAUL.

I still say, WHY Do they even have this "not a lawyer" idiot here Why not put on at least the attorneys for US rather than this tool?

Thankyou to the RT Anchor woman here in reminding the Guest of the most important aspect of a 'Constitutional Republic' being what this is, and NOT a 'Democracy' which is mob rule. Not what the Founders intended.

It is defined by We the People. Indeed, we are the ones who have allowed them to rig and corrupt it so thoroughly. It will be cleansed, purged of this foul imposition as soon as WE get at it. This guy is suspicious to me too. Too much 'Democracy' talk.

The title for this video is, "Lawyers FOR Ron Paul". The assumption is that we are to hear what the Lawyers are gonna do FOR the Ron Paul People, not what they can't do.

You just need to look up the actual bylaws, I don't think you even understand what the issue is I am talking about here, I'll explain, Lets say we owned a motorcycle sales lot and we had a system in which you and I vote to make decisions about policy and how to conduct business, all written in a contract that we signed. If you then decided to sell the business without my consent I would go to court, because in the contract it said I have power, where-as you abused yours.

Clyde Barber

And you will get no where, why do you think ron paul ran as a republican, it is because you can not do a damn thing with any other party, quit being so narrow minded and get out of your comfort zone, yes it is depressing but jesus christ have you ever been to a libertarian get together, everyone kissing everyones ass, I mean, it is no worse than a bunch of war hawks masturbating to bush

Jay Straw
Guest

No, your point is absurd, it's not like Ron Paul joined the GOP and had an effect. If you want to talk political change, RP had virtually no influence until 6 years ago. So to say I'm narrow minded because sticking to my guns won't get me what I want is a) ignoring time as a variable, and b) ignoring the fact that, while RP had an R after his name, he didn't really agree with them. And I would waaaay rather have a few beers with you than a political circle jerk! Coalition forming Clyde 🙂

Jay Straw
Guest

Yes, you are right, if a contract fails in our current system it defaults to court and everyone understands this. I just don't like the idea of a court — or any organization — that can initiate force. There is only prevention, and if an organization wants to keep its reputation, it will uphold its obligations (including severance obligations). Would you run for president as a Dem or Rep and expect a fair shot? No? Why? They wouldn't have wasted the money if it were frivilous, just not my thing
