Delegates to GOP Convention Hold Press Conference, Demand Grievances Be Addressed by RNC


Delegates from several states gathered together at the Republican National Convention to hold a press conference. Their purpose was to let the Republican National Committee know that they have gone too far.

“This convention was scripted from ground zero. Conventions are not supposed to be scripted!” said State Rep.(R) Glen Bradley, from North Carolina. “This is where Republicans get together to do business, to come up with a platform, and to decide how to save the future of the United States!”

The RNC convention convened officially earlier this week, and has been one outrage after another. This large group of grassroots supporters from several states put together a list of grievances that they want the Republican National Committee to address.

#1 Duly elected delegates were not properly seated at the convention

#2 The manner in which the rules were adopted prevented the participation of the body

#3 The minority report was not presented

#4 A legitimate nomination was obstructed (that of Ron Paul)

#5 Individual grievances from the following states: Georgia, Arkansas, Washington, Massachusetts, Virginia, California, Oklahoma, Texas, Wisconsin, Nebraska, North Carolina, Michigan, and Indiana

In addition, Maine has grievances as well…Eric Brakey, delegate and Chairman for Defense of Liberty PAC, addressed the audience.

“Several individuals with tight connections in the RNC exploited their political favors to get Maine’s delegation thrown out, ” said Brakey. “Maine is just the first of many. The rules that were passed, and shoved through at this convention, will mean that every state will be subject to the same arbitrary decisions by the RNC that Maine was.”

“Nine individuals, in the RNC,  in a smoke-filled room, chose who was going to represent Maine. These were individuals from states like California, Arkansas, and Kentucky. Not one of them was from  the state of Maine,” said Brakey.

“Mainers should be electing Mainers.”

This list of grievances doesn’t even represent half of the atrocities that the RNC and the Mitt Romney campaign have committed across the country in several states. Allegations of ballot stuffing, improperly held conventions, and even violence have followed in their wake. It seems as if they were ready to do anything to keep the grassroots folks out of the convention. They figured they would just give up and go home.

The RNC and the Romney campaign underestimated the power of the promise of liberty.

I think the words of Mark Anthony Jones, from the 5th District in MO, sum up the sentiment:

“We were railroaded,” said Jones. “It was inappropriate. This was the shot heard ’round the world.”

“We are absolutely not leaving this party. Hear us loud and clear. This is MY party. I plan to be here until I die. You’re not kicking me out.”

    What Rep. Bradley does not understand, the future of the United States is already scripted. He’s just not part of the script writing team. The new rules will not include anyone that isn’t pre-approved by the powers behind the curtain. Ron Paul was pulling back that curtain, so the rules had to change to prevent anyone else from doing that.

      What, are you scared to fight as soon as they fight back? Glen is a true patriot and a statesman. We will never give up!

  2. Dusty says:

    Perhaps Maine should send a very real message to the GOP … either NO GOP selection or simply the one which you were not allowed to nominate!!! I bet there are dozens of scumbag stunts WE can pull … LEGALLY!!! >:)

  3. The real question is, we can petition all we want, but will they HEAR US?

  4. John Buetow says:

    Implying a corrupt organization with ties to a corrupt government gives two shits.

    Did anyone aside from a few Ustreams cover the event?
