As you all know, tomorrow the local Ron Paul Brigades are going to attempt to take over your local conventions.
Just remember this little bit of advice: your rules for the convention are not yet cast in stone. You can stop a lot of what they want to do just by tightening up your convention rules, e.g. restrict floor nominations, stack your nominating convention with party regulars, force challenges to be person and precinct specific, etc.
I’ve always heard a quote attributed to Alexander Hamilton, “If I write the rules, I will win by the rules each time.”
Hell, let me throw Joe Stalin in for good measure and to inflame the sensibilities of the already paranoid. “The vote does not matter as much as who counts the vote.”
We need not let this band of pseudo-constitutional purists, hard core libertarians without a party, neo-nazis, anti-semites, Christian fringe true believers, and nutters wreck havoc at party conventions trying to undo a legitimate vote of the people.
And yes, for you Ron Paul people, these conventions really are for show. Gone are the days where you can swing conventions. State laws now require you to vote for the vote getter in your district. You are just for show. We all are. Get used to it.
