The Power of the Delegates

• Daily Paul
Did you know that the delegates can actually vote to unbind thier delegates that are bound to another candidate? Did you know that delegates can actually overturn and previous vote? Did you know the delegates have control of the entire process?

It's very tough to make blanket statements about how the delegate process works because it is different in every state and county. In November of last year I penned a white paper on the process in Nevada where I pointed out that the caucuses were not "an election" for a Presidential candidate, but rather thousands of mini-elections for delegates to the county conventions.

The reverse is also true: the GOP is a private organization made up of 53? private organizations (state parties and commonwealths) that are made up of however many private county organizations. The successful campaign in a fractured election cycle is that which understands the rules in each of those private organizations and uses them to their advantage. But...


and, the rules for changing the rules differ for each county and state. And, if the rules are violated, there are rules for challenging the actions. And, there are rules for the national and state organizations for refusing to recognize the per-the-rules actions of county organizations.

What it boils down to is having the right number of voices yelling "yea" or "nay" in the right room at the right time.

The right number for me was one. I am a delegate to the state convention, with the same rights and privileges as every other delegate to the state convention, and only one person has ever voted for me.

Think about that for a second. Of all the people in Nevada, of all the people registered Republican, of all the people elected as delegates from the precinct to the county conventions, I have just as much sway at the upcoming state convention as any other person and the only hand ever counted for me is my own.
