Accuracy is always important in matters like these...all we get is conjecture from Ron Paul "the sky will fall if he wins" camp, which is based on an emotional bias that causes them to cut-and-paste from MSM articles where, to this day, ridicule is not often the test of truth.
The fact of the matter is that a small percentage of Americans are trying to SAVE this country for everybody else, not our selfish-selves...and what people will come to appreciate is that we studied their rulebook, got in their face, and have upset them to the degree that they have been forced to commit blatent act of fraud, misrepresentations, intimidation, and vote-rigging via rule changes and playing legalese games with novices to our political system in order to maintain power and the status quo.
And so, if anyone thinks Ron Paul and his followers are irrelevant; read here...we're in this to to win this ... or die trying ... http://dougwead.wordpress.com/2012/04/27/ron-pauls-delegate-math-an-accurate-update/
NOTE: The games still continue ... the GOP at large doesn't want Constitutional conservatives or any grounded persons of character in high elected office if they approach government in the same manner our founders would(small government; God is higher than Caesar - sinful man cannot be trusted - separation of powers, checks and balances - not YOURS to give etc.). The Conservative Caucus of Monroe County had this brief battle with Richardville and his machine back in the day when I lived there ... when I saw what I would be up against after deciding to run for Ebli's seat in 2008, I just skipped going through a primary battle and decided to run 3rd party so I would be on the ballot in hopes that some more conservatives would wise up.
from the blog..."Which brings me to one more correction. The International Business Times claims that Ron Paul will win a majority of the delegates from North Dakota. Nada. That will not happen. In fact, that process is done and it is one of the states where the Ron Paul people were ambushed by Romney’s Goldman Sachs brigade. While Ron Paul beat Mitt Romney, who came in third place in the North Dakota state vote, Romney still won 60% of the delegation at the state convention by a combination of lawyers, parliamentarians, the elimination of paper ballots and controlling the audio visuals."
Since this is also how guys like Richardville also maintain their political careers today(via cronyism), I would dare say the electorate at large is now quite aware how rampant it is in our system. And now that they have seen it all over the internet because of the Ron Paul supporters who have courageously exposed it, I would also say that even if Ron Paul doesn't get the nomination - these people's days are numbered because we're not going anywhere - we have more energy, determination, understanding, purpose, vision, and fight in us than they will ever have...just like our founders...lost many battles, but won the war!
