Three Az GOP delegates break ranks, vote for Ron Paul

There was an elephant in the room at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, and his name was Ron Paul. Despite pleas from the stage for party unity, three of Arizona’s 29 delegates voted for Paul, joining 187 others who bucked the party and refused to vote for Romney.

Add me to the list of people who think that Paul is the best candidate. But, it doesn’t really matter…

One of the very few things broken about our Constitution is the concept of the electoral college. Since the state has a republican majority, all nine of our electoral votes will go to Romney. That being the case, it really don’t matter who I vote for for president because it’s just going to be, in essence, “thrown away” if it’s not for Romney. So, I’m seriously considering voting my conscience and writing in Ron Paul. The guy’s not perfect, but in my mind he’s the best choice of anyone of any party who ran for president this this time around. It’s a crying shame he couldn’t get a fair shake from the mass media, who just did everything they could to make Paul seem like some sort of crackpot.

Big Government - Big Church - Big Business:  What I find most interesting about the Mitt Romney Presidential Campaign against Obama is that Romney was losing most of the GOP Primaries until the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) - The Mormons, church leaders instructed their millions of church members to begin attending all local political meeting.  Perhaps this was so that the LDS faithful could elect each other as their states official Delegates.  Romney than began sweeping the GOP elections across the country. The repercussions of this request of the Mormon faithful by the LDS church leaders will be experienced throughout the political system of the United States of America for years, if not decades to come.  If the LDS church does not succeed in putting a Mormon President in the White House in 2012, you can trust the LDS church will persist until it does - and will probably persist at all costs.
