Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Rule Change = Dictatorship

Ben Swann got an interview with Mitt and Paul Ryan wherein he gets Mitt to reveal that he "knows nothin'" about the stripping of the Maine delegates. But Ben uses this piece to highlight that if Mitt gets his way with this new rule change, he'll be the one selecting all the RNC delegates in 2016, meaning that the grassroots will be mowed down permanently. This has not only Paulers upset, but your run of the mill Tea Party types like Dick Armey, Michelle Malkin and even Mark Levin.

So all you supporting Mitt Romney thinking you're going to "hold him accountable", just know he's trying to work it so that you can't. That's how much humility and respect he has for you and the process. You've been warned.



Update: They are blocking the Virginian delegation from voting on the rule change:


The Virginia and Rhode Island delegations are apparently being blocked from entering the Republican National Convention. They're keeping us all on a bus and not allowing us in the security perimeter.
Please share this news with your friends.
-Chris Stearns, Delegate from Virginia on the bus.

  1. He keeps saying "I'm not worried about that." Not just about this, but about a lot of things. It's like a nervous tick. Listen for it in his interviews. I'll bet you'll hear it a lot. I guess it's his go-to line when he's trying to avoid admitting something. It's not a denial, that's for sure.

  2. Well said, how disturbing is this development? Imagine what this guy, and this team will do if they are elected?

    1. Same thing as Obama, but with a Gordon Gekko flair.

  3. This is disgudting and lends more weight to what must be the priciple goal of the Tea parties to remove and replace the Republican elites starting at the state and local level all the way to the national level. I know that you don't believe that will ever happen and you may be right; but what other course of action do we have?

    1. The great thing about the Ron Paul run is that we have drawn out who is for America and who is for the banksters. Now we've seen how they react to lawful opposition, we can plan accordingly and anticipate their moves.

      Local is key, getting people informed on an individual level is powerful.

  4. This is so appalling. But I'm sorry, I disagree with you on what constitutes the so called run of the mill tea party types as you listed above. Dick Armey, Michelle Malkin and even Mark Levin are all corporatists as well. They are part of the same corporatist faction and same believers of the same policy Romney and Ryan are a part of. Here is a great article on the subject of our plutocracy that we are now living in.

  5. The term "run of the mill" to denote them is done tongue and cheek. I and you know they are corportists, but the average political junkie that hangs on Mark Levin's every world can't understand it. Mark Levin gets his money from Dick Scaife of the Mellon fortune, who has bankrolled him for 20 years though Landmark Legal.

  6. Oh that's very interesting about Mark Levin. I was proud of the Ron Paul delegates for giving the party hell yesterday. The party is alienating a long list of people in this country. They can now add to that list the young people. The ones who are big supporters of Ron Paul are not going to support this kind of behavior or party. The GOP is not my father's GOP that is for sure.

    1. When you follow the money back, it is always interesting. The system doesn't understand people of principle and don't seem to have it figured into their models.
