All eyes are on the last state to pick delegates for the Republican National Convention, as the campaign the main stream media wishes to be over continues its bid to take the Republican nomination in Tampa, Florida this summer. Pursuant to party rules, Ron Paul would actually be in the running to be the Republican nominee for president if he can secure the state delegations of five states. Thus far, Dr. Paul has four.
Despite well documented accusations of campaign fraud and intimidation to Paul delegates, the Congressman’s campaign continues despite continued and concerted attempts to stop his bid for president.
“I don’t know if we have enough delegates to have a majority. We have got a fair number and there are probably a few more that are friendly to Ron Paul. Our goal is a coalition and win that way,” said Laura Ebke, chairwoman of the Republican Liberty Caucus in Nebraska and a Ron Paul delegate hopeful.
Word is that Paul has about the support of 500 delegates, but many are obligated to vote for Romney in the first round of primary voting pursuant to party rules. However, if agreement is unreached, the convention continues through rounds of voting until a winner is picked, enabling the long shot Paul into winning the nomination.
Although Mr. Paul himself doesn’t expect a victory, the message has clearly resonated and become very strong with a growing crowd of young people and people from all walks of life.
“No one knows what is going to happen. It is going to be interesting, shall we say”, said Tim Hagle, an expert on Republican politics at the University of Iowa.

I really do think the movement has become much larger than Ron Paul, and that’s exactly what Ron Paul wanted in the first place. Dr. Paul is fully aware of the lies and deceptions we live in right now, and I’m sure he can’t say or do as much as he’d like or else he risks his own life and others around him, to be quite honest.
However, the unruly masses that believe in this whole liberty thing don’t have these same constraints, which is why the campaign that wasn’t supposed to survive is continuing and growing stronger despite every tactic and trick utilized against them.
There is actually a legitimate shot of Ron Paul securing the Republican nomination if time keeps on passing and these leaks keep on coming. People are beginning to openly question the Fed and in numbers, and the more they realize they’ve been scammed, the smaller the window of opportunity for the scammer politicians currently running for office.
