DELEGATES, CANDIDATES AND PARTY UNITY
October 18, 2008
Shortly after the Republican convention, Devvy Kidd was a guest on my program. Devvy attended the National Convention with press credentials and spent most of my hour program describing what took place in Minneapolis. She went into great detail explaining how Ron Paul delegates were tracked and robbed of their Ron Paul paraphernalia such as posters, buttons and other accessories. After my show with Devvy I received the following email from a patriotic, older U.S. citizen who attended the convention as an elected delegate. I’m withholding this person’s name for obvious reasons, but I am certain this is a factual story.
“I was an elected delegate to the Republican National Convention from my state. At my expense I went to Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota to vote for the candidate I was ‘bound’ to represent. What I experienced at the RNC has only caused my alarm to escalate! I found there is no such thing as ‘free speech’ at a convention, or even an honest voting process!
No signs for other candidates were allowed, but we were given McCain signs to wave, told when and how to wave them, given a cue card of ‘chants’ and told when to chant, when to stand, when to clap, when to sit down, etc.!
Delegates bound to other candidates were pressured to change their vote for an appearance of ‘party unity’. Those who didn’t change their vote, choosing instead to vote for the candidate they were elected to represent, found that their votes WERE NOT included in the final tally! Some State Party Chairmen refused to announce votes from delegates other than McCain delegates. Our state chairman DID announce our votes, but the RNC Secretary did not repeat our votes, and they were not shown on the screen. Some Chairmen tried to announce the ‘other’ votes, and found their microphones were cut off so they weren’t heard.
My conclusion is that I spent my time and money to travel halfway across the country to film an elaborate, scripted ‘commercial’ for a candidate I wasn’t representing.”

On election day WE THE PEOPLE vote to pick those who are to represent us in the seats of government. That was “once upon a time”. Today you and I have lost our voices and our leaders are hand picked by a very small group of international globalists determined to turn our United States into a third world country, dominated by a one world leader. Our Constitution was written to insure that WE THE PEOPLE rule this nation, not the politicians, judges, lawyers and bureaucrats. The Republican party leaders have joined hands with the Democrat party leaders, to make sure that we no longer have that right.
