Allow Ron Paul to be put up for nomination (and speak) during the RNC

    1. Trevor Wood
    2. Petition by

      Trevor Wood

      Arvada, CO

First of all, Ron Paul has received a plurality in at least five states: Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisiana, and Iowa. One could even include Colorado amongst those numbers as nearly all of the delegates from Colorado are in support of Ron Paul. Other cases can be made for other states that have shown their support for Ron Paul with regards to the delegates that are in support of him. The first fact alone, though, makes Ron Paul eligible for nomination as one of the nominees of the Republican Party.

The thing about the whole nomination process is that the Republican Party (at the national and state-levels) has disenfranchised not only Ron Paul through the whole primary process, but also all of those that support Ron Paul whether they are delegates or not. This can even be applied (this disenfranchisement) of anyone that wanted (or wants) to vote for someone other than Romney as the Republican candidate to go against Obama in November’s elections.

I have been registered as a Republican since I first became eligible to vote 10 years ago. If the Republican Party continues down the current path (i.e., to disregard their own rules for the nomination process as well as continue to alienate those that simply show support for Ron Paul), it is becoming more and more difficult to see me continue to be associated with the Grand Old Party.

My hope is that the Republican Party/RNC (despite the actions that have be dealt so far during the past year) will honor their own rules and give Ron Paul not only a speaking role at the Republican National Convention but also put him up for nomination during said convention on August 27th.

Much regards.

    1. According to the RNC, it is finished

      Trevor Wood
      Petition Organizer

      Well, regardless of our efforts, in the end the RNC did not uphold their own rules and therefore not only stopped the grassroots activity within the GOP (for now) but also made a statement that their ‘rule’ is more important the voice of those that seek to work within the system.

      The RNC/GOP also made a statement through all of this to say that they do not support fair and honest election processes.

      From the beginning I was almost certain that a petition might not have much influence on what decisions were made by the RNC, but I am at the very least proud that this group of people came together to fight for truth and fairness (and, of course, for other reasons as well).

      The fight does not and should not end here. Voice your disappointment to what has happened here in the many facets that are afforded to us as people and as Americans.

      Don't stop here and God speed!

      As always, blessings!

    2. 5000 signatures reached!

      Thanks to all of you, we reached the 5,000 signature goal. I wasn't sure that we'd get to that point before the main part of the convention, but we did.

      I know there are a lot of people out there that support Ron Paul as well as people who are demanding that we have fair election processes, so hopefully some good will come of this...if at the very least, awareness to the fact of what has taken place during this primary process which was unfair to all those that worked real hard for the candidate(s) they fought for only to have the establishment pull a rug out from underneath them in order that they can 'crown' their own candidate.

      Well, needless to say, the fight is NOT over. We can garner more signatures for this if we want, but now it is up to all of us to make a difference from our own end.

      We can say only so much until the point we need to take action on to make good things come to fruition.

      God bless all of you and keep strong.

      Like I said, the fight is never over!

      We are almost there folks. I know that I have not lived a very long life myself, but the election process for the Republican nomination has definitely been a dandy one...one that Ron Paul and his delegates knew how to work within the rules of the process to win the nomination, but the "powers-to-be" pulled their weight at every stop possible to strip Ron Paul and his delegates of their rightful place in this process.

      This petition is for them in the short term, but also for all Americans in the long term in the sense we need to demand for fair and honest elections processes. Let us first grant Ron Paul a nomination slot at the RNC because he won it fairly.

      Thank you all for your support so far! Please extend an invite to others you know who would be interested in supporting this knowing that this is more than just for the present but also for the future!

      Blessings!

    5. Recent Schenanigans, but still fighting for Ron Paul

      Trevor Wood
      Petition Organizer

      The RNC shenanigans have been on the forefront these past few days. The problem is most Americans don't even know about...mainly just those that are most actively trying to still fight for Ron Paul and honest elections.

      And this petition is more than just for Ron Paul. This is for the Americans that are tired of getting pushed around. This is for those folks that want our election processes to be honest and ethical. This is for all the Patriots out there, fighting for this country on all fronts, fighting for the Constitution.

      We do need to bring our troops home, and no other major candidate would get this done besides Ron Paul.

      Thank you all who have been a part of this petition from the beginning to even just now. Let’s not give this up, even if the RNC pulls out all of the stops to end Ron Paul’s run.

      THIS IS NOT OVER! Do what you need to do to change things at the local level. Keep fighting for Ron Paul and all those that are advancing Liberty and our Constitution.

      God bless.

    7. Last push to the 5000 mark!

      Trevor Wood
      Petition Organizer

      We are less than 1500 signatures from the 5000 signature goal! Thank you all for your time and efforts so far.

      With the Republican National Convention only a few days away, let us make one last push to show that we demand not only fair election processes in general but also tell the “powers-to-be” that bullying is unacceptable.

      Each delegate next week should be allowed to vote their conscious especially knowing the way a good portion of the delegates have been mistreated.

      Please share this petition at least one more time.

      Thank you all for what you have done so far.

      Stay blessed!

    8. 3,000 signatures to date

      We have just reached the 3,000 mark for this petition! All thanks must be given to all of you, and thank you Robert (from Florida) for being that exact signature that made it to this significant mark.

      How fitting, though, that the momentous signature is from Florida. Let's hope that ethical election processes are honored not just in Tampa, FL, in a couple weeks from now but that the process throughout this country (and the world for that matter) will be given a fair chance each and every time.

      There are many issues that this world faces...this is but one. Hopefully honesty will prevail and that we will all work to restore the things we are all rightfully afforded as human beings.

      Please continue to share the word so that we can send a message to this country and not just the GOP/RNC.

      Thank you all and stay blessed!

      Petition Organizer

      Ok, well, it seems you've all done quite a job so far: we've reached 2,300+ signatures!

      This petition was initiated less than 6 days ago, with it live officially for 5...well, at least that was when I first began to pass it along.

      Needless to say this number could not have been reached without all of you!

      As always, please consider sharing it (passing it along), especially for all those new here.

      Blessings and keep fighting for ethical election processes.

      Much regards,

      Trevor Wood
      Petition Organizer

      Congrats everyone, for this milestone. I know that this petition has a high number for the goal, but I do sincerely believe that there are a lot of people out there that not only support Ron Paul but I am positive that there are people that want fair elections and will support this cause because of that as well.

      It is with your tremendous help that we've come this far. For those that began from day one to all the new folks, please don't forget to share this petition...or rather this message for more accountable and ethical election processes.

      Thank you all and stay blessed!
