LA Caucus and the ProLife/ProFamily Platform

Well, Ron Paul was shaping up to win the LA Caucus that was held Tuesday night. He had, by far, the most support there as nobody else decided to pay attention to LA. It was a clear win, until the rest of the candidates decided to band together under one platform (Pro Life/ Pro Family) and all vote as a single block. I suppose they'll figure out a way to divide up the delegates later. Ron Paul apparently has people worried enough that they'll all band together just to spite him. I'm not surprised in the least bit.

Ronald Reagan Wins Louisiana Caucus
Posted by Nick Bradley at January 23, 2008 08:56 AM

According to the Shreveport Times, the Pro-Life/Pro-Family ticket won in all 7 districts last night. All non-Paul candidates pooled their delegates into a single delegate slate: Huck, Romney, Benito, McCain, Thompson. However, from what I've read at RonPaulForums, at least half of Paul's supporters had to cast "provisional ballots" because they registered jsut before the 30 November deadline.

And what about Reagan? Well, this is the handout for the Pro-Life/Pro-Family delegate slate; It has a photo of Ron and Nancy Reagan and says "win one for the gipper." This is a new low for the rest of the field, but it is what it is and I am not suprised one bit.

Non-Paul candidates also pooled their resources in Wyoming, where Paul was actually ahead on some of the first ballots, but supporters of the various neocon candidates pooled their support to win the county.

On the plus side:

1. The coalition delegate slate will be split 4 ways at the state convention, and Paul may have more than any one candidate.

2. Paul supposedly has most of the alternate delegate slots, most of which were uncontested. So if somebody doesn't show up or is ruled ineligible, a Paul delegate can step up.

3. If half of Paul's supporters did indeed cast provisional ballots, these results from the Shreveport times are utterly meaningless."

Thats just disgusting. ProLife and ProFamily vs Ron Paul, the man who wants to overturn Roe v Wade NOW and stop the gestapo-like IRS from having the authority to tear your family apart.

edit: If the national convention went this way on the other hand, Ron Paul vs the cookie cutter neo-con republicans, we could win the nomination. Thats the goal. (and why I didn't want to see Thompson leave)

Gotta love organizations on moral crusades, and their agendas.
