    I couldn't tell from the video, are these rules/guidelines part of some kind of law (meaning can they be taken to any sort of court for this) or is it just subject to Republican Party leadership, who can safely blow these off as they come?

    Well that sucks. Guess the only option Republicans have is mass defections from the party? Even if they support Mitt or whoever this blatant corruption of the process, for me at least, would be enough to make sure I never associate with them again.

    They are trying to kick these people out where possible.

    edit: Also many people are saying NOPB. Basically same as defecting but also staying along to remove them.

    He openly admitted to trying to influence the caucus. Why the fuck hasn't he been charged with high-treason?

    The point is to nominate a person from your organization. The organization has grown corrupt. Well in reality the system was designed to keep outsiders from winning. Problem for them is that Ron Paul has far more support than them.

    I still don't believe this is true and that doesn't even seem to be what the guy who confessed said. RP has more devote followers who will stay for the delegate selection in mass that the others don't have but I don't believe that the majority of Americans want RP and it's just all voter fraud keeping him from being elected.

    Majority of Americans don't care about politics. Sorry but when headline comes out saying 50% of republicans want war to end and then a month later 70% want to bomb Iran one has to ask how committed are these people to their decisions. Only true way of gauging support for a candidate are the hardcore supporters. Other supporters can be made to vote pretty much anything.

    Thankfully those who want freedom, a functioning economy, and an end to taxes and wars are smarter, more informed and more dedicated than those who do not.

    And, thankfully, the system's rules allow for a minority to win, so as to not be oppressed by a simple majority who, are in this case, obviously extremely dim-witted.

    Some people genuinely vote for Santorum. Need I say more? That's officially retarded in my book.


    Yummy.

    Of course not...in the US there CANNOT be any fraud...especially in the Democratic system...being a system essentially given to them by God himself...

    The US has many faces, but one of its founding movements was Puritanism....they were the most zealous and fanatical (although not necessarily violent) religious movements developped in Europe....luckily for Europe most of them packed and left for New England....sadly for the world, their unshaking beliefs (or naivety) is one of the pillars of US mentality....and the ruling classes are bathed in it.

    Many people from around the world will tell you that Americans are dumb or naive or childish...I myself find that discussing certain topics with most of them is like discussing politics with an autistic child.....but the roots of this issue are not the IQ, but essentially cultural

    "Our government would never lie to us" are things that you can only hear from Americans (not Canadians nor Mexicans), and the most part of them BELIEVE IT...this makes them a very strong (since fanatical) nation, but on the other hand, if anyone was able to highjack their government, he would sort of become invulerable..any wrongdoing he would commit, any disregard for law (international or internal) would pass unobserved by his subjects
