This is What the GOP is Hatching Against Ron Paul

This was emailed to a local Ron Paul Meetup Group…

——————————————————–

Hello,

On

Saturday morning, May 10, 2008, I attended the District 1 Annual meeting of

the Colorado Federation of Republican Women. Unbeknownst to me, the 2-hour

meeting would end up being an atrocious display of anti-Republican

behavior.

In this letter, I will give the details from the meeting that were

repugnant.  Before I begin, I feel compelled to state that I could not

believe I was in the presence of

Liberty-loving people who stood by and were involved in this complicity.  As

the Republican National Committee Party Rules state (in the first

paragraph), “BE IT RESOLVED, That the Republican Party is the party of the

open door.  Ours is the party of liberty, the party of equality of

opportunity for all and favoritism for none.”

The headlining speaker was Michael Eddy from the McCain campaign.  I knew

something was fishy about this person, as the card attached to each of the

30-some roses he had delivered to the meeting on behalf of the McCain

campaign had, on one side, a personal endorsement to support him as a

delegate to the State or CD Assembly/Convention.

Mike spent the last quarter of his speech discussing his knowledge about the

“large contingency” of Ron Paul supporters in Colorado.  He said he was fine

with electing people who were Romney supporters to be National delegates,

but not Ron Paul supporters.

He said delegates should be “loyal” Republicans and Ron Paul supporters are

not.  He said we should not elect people as delegates who will get to the

National Convention and “light their hair on fire”.  He said Ron Paul

supporters would be a disgrace to the Republican Party.

He went on to state that they know that there are about 50 delegates for Ron

Paul who will be at the CD 1 Assembly.  He brought up what occurred with

another state’s convention and said that the National organization (RNC) is

working closely with the remaining states’ organizations to ensure Ron Paul

delegates do not get elected.  He said the National Committee will be having

a conference call with the Colorado State Republican Party Committee on

Monday (5/12) to discuss this.  He further explained that they would

accomplish this by changing the Rules prior to the convention and

additionally coming up with their own slate.

After Mike spoke,

other members in attendance echoed his inflammatory statements about Ron

Paul supporters.  Ruth Dolan, president, spoke in agreement with Mike Eddy’s

statements, as well as other officers.  One officer warned everyone to be

very “prudent” because there are people among us whom are “wolves in sheep’s

clothing”.

I recognized other Ron Paul supporters in the room, so I know I was not the

only one who left the meeting in complete disgust that Republicans could

conspire against other Republicans in such a way.  This is energy that

should be directed towards Democrats, not fellow Republicans!

All the Best,

    A friend of mine just emailed me one of your articles from a while back. I read that one a few more. Really enjoy your blog. Thanks

    These are the reasons why a third party is critical, I wish the Republican party would fix themselves, but the neo-cons and “might-makes-right” repubs have choked the freedoms and liberties out of America just as much as the dems have…the dems take our money and the repubs take our liberties, how can you vote for either one in good conscience?

    This was nice, until the last sentence: “This is energy that should be directed towards Democrats, not fellow Republicans!” That attitude is as bad as that of the republicans you describe. We should direct that energy against neither republicans nor democrats; rather we should use it to champion what we believe, not bring down others.

    Matt –
    I agree. I find it counter productive to sink to the level of the neo-con.
