Update on the Nevada Republican Convention

Ron Paul speaking in Las Vegas
By Zach Foster

May 6, 2012, 10:45 A.M. -- Though the delegates bound for the National Convention have yet to be elected, the atmosphere is incredibly tense but still shining favorably for the Paul camp.

Though it has been discovered that the Romney camp has done everything in their power to steal the state convention for the dishonest corporate welfarist, going so far as to dress their own storm troopers in Ron Paul gear and distribute fake lists on behalf of the Ron Paul campaign with the names of pro-Romney delegates, in an effort to bamboozle Ron Paul supporters, they Romney thugs are still in the minority in the election.

Unlike 2008, when the Nevada Republican Party shut down the convention early in order to prevent the Paul camp from winning their impending victory, the majority of those attending this year are in the Paul camp.  Whenever a Romney supporter takes the stage to speak, he is heckled by the Paul camp, even Romney’s own son Josh.  When Romney’s supporters begin to chant “Mitt, Mitt, Mitt” they are quickly drowned out by a sea of voices shouting “President Paul!”

Two of Nevada’s incumbent members of the Republican National Committee, Heidi Smith and former Nevada Governor Bob List (known Romney supporters), were booed and voted out of the RNC by the pro-Paul majority, and replaced by Paul supporters Dianna Orrock and James Smack.

Nevada Party leaders are trying to maintain the illusion that there will be Party unity after this convention, but any such notion is a falsehood.  The Romney camp are running on the desperation of having anyone but Obama (but Paul doesn’t get to participate in their utopia), whereas Paul supporters are campaigning on the principles of the U.S. Constitution and a truly free and prosperous society.  Paul supporters are finally making headway in performing the vital surgery on our country to rid it of the Obama- and Romney-supported cancers of perpetual war, deficit spending, inflation, and desecration of the Bill of Rights.

UPDATE: As of 11:00 A.M., Ron Paul won 22 out of 25 of Nevada's delegates to the national convention.
