The Republican Convention and the Ron Paul Revolution

ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election 2012 Sep 03, 2012 - 06:47 AM GMT

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Grand Old Party produced a scripted appeal to the faithful. The 2012 Republican Party convention in Tampa, designed to sell a filtered image of a country club version of conservatism, begs the historic substance of a traditional embodiment of true timeless values. Hitting a range of obligatory themes is not equivalent to standing for the principles of a constitutional republic. Appealing to the estranged elements of the GOP needs more than words to restore faith and hope. Reasoned policy stands require a refutation of the failure of the Neoconservative agenda. So do not be duped by the language in the platform.


The indomitable Phyllis Schlafly loves the planks, in the article: Republican Party platform best yet.

"It rejects a long list of United Nations treaties, including the treaty on women’s rights, the treaty on the rights of the child, the treaty on persons with disabilities, the arms trade treaty and the Law of the Sea treaty. The platform also rejects Agenda 21, including its proposal for a global tax and various U.N. declarations on the environment.

Altogether, the 2012 Republican Platform is an excellent document written by grass-roots conservatives. It is a true reflection of American values."

Now how can any red blooded conservative disagree with a political party that rejects the globalism of the United Nations? Well, our distinguished champion at the Eagle Forum engages in wishful thinking, if she believes that the platform is anything more than tomorrows fish wrapper paper.

For a concise analysis of the irrelevance of the planks in the platform, view the John Nichols: Mitt Romney Versus the Tea Party video. In politics, deeds count, while rhetoric blows away with the wind.

Judge a campaign by the political handlers and their records. Examine the viewpoints that the political endorsers are committed to their core. The notion expressed by the New York Times in Platform’s Sharp Turn to Right Has Conservatives Cheering may give temporary joy, but the ugly underbelly of the NeoCon purity sect is at work to purge the party of the residual of real conservatives.

You can trust such social outcasts as the John Birch Society, when their columnist, Joe Wolverton II reveals what really transpired at the convention in the article, RNC, Romney Combine to Quiet Ron Paul and his Delegates.

"As we have reported, on August 24 the RNC voted to rob Ron Paul of half of Ryan's fellow Maine delegates won by the iconic Texas congressman at that state’s Republican convention held in May.

Later that same day the RNC Rules Committee voted 63-38 to create a new party rule granting the ruling cabal — and by extension their candidate, Mitt Romney — unchecked power to change the party’s rules.

Does the RNC believe that such effrontery will somehow convince the Ron Paul delegates to quietly consent to the coronation of Mitt Romney? Perhaps they believe that flexing their manipulative muscle will pressure Dr. Paul to endorse Romney’s run for the White House."

The irony of the name of our publication site, Breaking All The Rules, should not be misconstrued as support for the criminal corporatist methods of crushing the grass root activists within the Republican Party. Quite to the contrary, the Ron Paul militants are the essence of the Tea Party revolt. So when the armchair convention watcher settles into their recliner to catch the victory melody for the Amerikan hegemony, as the speakers sing the glory of military superiority to expand the empire, all loyal nationalists hit the mute button. Keep the visuals on in the background so you know whom not to trust.

The exact extent of the methods used to beat down the legitimate Paulist delegates, not reported in the mass media, is appalling. Consider these exerts from a message of a Ron Paul activist, David Andrew Gay, attending the GOP convention:

"Properly elected Ron Paul delegates were stripped from us. And when a motion was made to amend the Credentials Committee Report, it was ignored.

Morton Blackwell, a longtime conservative activist and RNC Rules Committee expert, found himself indefinitely detained – along with the rest of the Virginia delegation.

The RNC’s bus driver responsible for transporting delegates somehow "got lost" for well over an hour until a critical Rules Committee meeting adjourned.

Blackwell and the Virginia delegation were heading up the efforts to defeat new RNC rules proposed by Washington, D.C.-based insider attorneys.

These rules are designed to turn the Republican Party into a top-down organization and strip power away from state parties and grassroots activists of every stripe."

So much for the "Big Tent" of the Romney GOP, that has all those resurrected Rockefeller Republicans intoxicated from drinking the toxic NeoCon kool-aid. There is a reason why the NeoCons are former Trotskyists.

Note the frustration from Justin Phillips of Tea Party Nation in the YouTube, Tea Party Leader Compares GOP To Old Communist Party Of Soviet Union. It is obvious that Romney is an establishment insider anointed to continue the global governance and has little tolerance for anyone who rejects and challenges the phony conservative pleading.

The magnitude of eradicating Ron Paul supporters and grassroots Tea Party proponents from representation in a possible Romney administration, forecasts a repeat of the 2008 Senator John McCain debacle. The same warmongering support for the rogue Israeli Zionists is a central part of a Romney capitulation to the dark side. Worry not about the oblique Mormon cult influence, when you have the real deal in the likes of NeoCon cultists like Connie Rice conning the nation once again.

Even if you wish to ignore the monumental topic of fostering an American First foreign policy, what would Romney do to restrain the inexplicable power of the Federal Reserve? If the GOP standard-bearer seriously wanted to reconstruct the economy, the most significant step would be to offer the chairmanship of the Fed to Ron Paul. The idea of reappointing Ben Shalom Bernanke to a third term would allow "Helicopter Ben" to become the "manna from heaven" idol of the New World Order.

The prospects of giving the keys to the kingdom to Ron Paul; with the instructions to transition into a debtless created currency, would prove Romney’s credentials as an authentic patriot. Of course, the reality that this would happen is on the same level as enacting the other planks of the platform.

The Irrelevance of the Republican Party, demonstrated at this establishment-orchestrated convention is building a backlash. The social network is abuzz with a call to action. The accomplished cartoonist Kevin George Tuma leads the charge with a posting of a public event on Facebook: MASS EXODUS from the REPUBLICAN PARTY.

"A special invitation to members of the Ron Paul Revolution, libertarians, and real conservatives who are fed up with the shady dealings of the Republican Party and its failed and useless 'Socialist Party B' ways. Boycott the Republican Party and vote Third party!"

Now for Republican "True Believers" such a movement will be condemned as an endorsement for a second Obama term. Only the meatheads that keep voting for the lesser of two evils, and believe they are making a difference will be sucked, again into the aiding and abetting the global governance of another Republican enabler administration.

When will the public accept that: "Since national elections have proved to be irrelevant, tweedledum and tweedledee charades, what’s the point in getting worked up over the next cycle?" If you doubt the wisdom in this conclusion, join either one of the branded political parties and work on the local level to affect party policy. During this election year, that is exactly what the Ron Paul supporters attempted to accomplish.

How did that turn out?

Until a nationwide movement for a third party coalition is agreed upon as the only plausible option to beat back the corporate controlled media propaganda machine, will the voice of patriotic dissent be heard. This billion dollar presidential campaign changes nothing significant in the consolidation of the financial global gulag.

As fundamentalists pray for a Romney triumph over the diabolical Obama puppet, they will need to obtain their salvation without the Ron Paul loyalists. Would a Romney regime be better than a second Obama term? Well, let us hope so; but that answer ignores the fact that essential and bold re-institution of constitutional and bill of right precepts no longer are part of the Republican hierarchy agenda.

If a mercenary army of a despotic political party can impose a tyrannical security around their GOP convention, why will the same political elites not demand that troops be deployed to close down our open and undefended borders?

Mitt Romney is John McCain lite. The Republican Party power structure will not accept a Ron Paul partisan to gain any significant position of authority. The money interests that control both heads of the two party fake rivalries are unwilling to allow a restoration of the vision for the original Republic.

Unfortunately, Rand Paul still needs to learn this lesson. Now that Ron Paul is ending his term in Congress, the prospect for passing the torch awaits a new champion of liberty.
