Election Fraud from Romney's camp

Saturday at the Pierce County Republican Convention, Ron Paul won a couple of legislative districts, but you will not believe how it happened. First of all, I received an education no college politics class would probably ever address, and I bet the mainstream media has no idea. Why not? Because they do not have people on the inside for 17 hours, like me, as a citizen's journalist in a delegate position for my precinct in Tacoma, Washington.

Have you ever seen the TV series called "Survivor"? Well, ladies and gentlemen, that show is not at all far from the reality of what happens in the choosing of delegates, and I now believe, has been happening around the country this year in the GOP Republican Party's delegate selection process began. I don't know how many times yesterday, my mouth dropped open, while I asked other delegates, "What is going on; is this legal?"

Paid campaign representatives, an attorney for one of the candidates and massive grassroots volunteers made up the cast of characters for this unbelievable drama. This whole campaign season, I have been trying to wrap my head around the fact that Ron Paul has thousands and thousands of people who participate in his rallies, he tops Google Trends in social networking over all the other candidates, and yet he is not winning? I have been exasperated trying to figure out the math. Was it election fraud? Was the mainstream media just flat out deceiving the world? Or is something else going on behind the scenes? Well, I'm here to tell you, it is all that and more!

The proceedings started with a prayer, followed by a Santorum supporter soloist singing the National Anthem. The Pledge of Allegiance finalized the introductory formalities. With all the corruption and deceit in the party this year, it hadn't even occurred to me that they would even mention God, Jesus or the Bible -- but this would soon prove to be the normal rhetoric on the scene throughout the day. In fact, when someone fainted later that night, a young Santorum supporter said, "Let's stop and pray."

One of the gentlemen at the microphone shared some impressive statistics about our March 3 caucus participation. He told us that a historical number of 6,000 people around the county participated; 1,100 delegates and 500 alternates won positions that day.

The first major drama erupted when a Ron Paul grassroots leader from the Liberty Ninjas of Puyallup, Nick Sherwood, proposed an amendment to the rules which would cause more integrity in the process. Immediately, a Mitt Romney leader jumped up to dispute it by encouraging all his supporters to vote it down. Then a high-spirited Rick Santorum leader, who made sure everyone knew all her credentials, firmly "told" her group and all the Gingrich supporters to shoot down the idea. The amendment was easily lost, leaving the reality that accountability and transparency would not be a factor in the Pierce County election process.

Due to the animosity toward Ron Paul, we tried to stay on the "down-low" which ended up being for naught, because unbeknownst to us, all the others worked from one unity slate to ensure Ron Paul's defeat in collecting more delegates. Later, before our speeches resumed, one of those in charge even went so far as to encourage the crowd not to vote for anyone who didn't identify who they were supporting. I asked myself, "Can they do that?" Part 2 continues here---> Ron Paul wins delegates in WA, political games or 'Survivor?' Part 2
