RON PAUL | MARCH 10, 2012
Ron Paul gets first win in Virgin Islands but all news agencies report Romney
DC Conservative Examiner
Here are the official numbers coming from the Virgin Islands GOP website:
Ron Paul 29% 112 (AND 88% OF THEIR VIGOP E-STRAW POLL !)
Mitt Romney 26% 101
Rick Santorum 6% 23
Newt Gingrich 5% 18
“Uncommitted”??? 34% 130
These are the official results from the Virgin Islands GOP, yet AP and therefore most major mainstream news organizations that receive information from them are reporting that somehow Mitt Romney has just won the contest in the Virgin Islands. Here is an example of headlines at USA Today publishing AP’s account of the “facts” which hit the net just 15 minutes ago and well after the real results have been available for the world to see.
Many of us have been reporting on the blatant election fraud and corruption that has reached an all-time high this primary season but this situation has got to take the cake. It is beyond my wildest dreams. This night has become the absolute “shock and awe” of mainstream media corruption being hoist upon the American people.
It has been disgusting enough that so many caucuses have been wrought with blatant fraud but when the GOP finally “allows” Ron Paul to actually get the numbers to have a win, the mainstream media all lie and report that Mitt Romney won? What in the world is going on here?
Is there anyone in the mainstream press that can read results and figure out that 112 votes is greater than 101 votes? I never thought in this time in our history that any amount of corruption could possibly shock me by now, but this one just caused my jaw to hit the floor.
In addition to the vote count, the website is also reporting that Ron Paul only won 1 delegate versus Romney supposedly winning 7. Those numbers ironically prove the Paul campaign’s point about delegate counts normally being reported inaccurately. This time the media does a complete 180 and doesn’t erroneously report the winner automatically winning the most delegates. Why the sudden change of reporting? There is only one plausible explanation. If they reported that Ron Paul got the most delegates it might hit people that he actually won the contest.
It is sadly evident that even if it requires every single major news agency to look at the official results and then flat-out lie to the public about what they saw, our corrupt system will simply not allow Ron Paul to get credit for one single win even when enough votes are not stolen from him and the official numbers clearly show he won.
This is truly unbelievable!
Please sound off in the comments section as I know I cannot possibly be alone in my shocking outrage.

VI GOP 2012 Caucus Results (Unofficial)
BY HERB SCHOENBOHM, ON MARCH 10TH, 2012
PLEASE NOTE IN THE VI OUR RULES PROVIDE FOR THE ELECTION OF DELEGATES IN A PARTY CAUCUS. EVERY ONE WHO VOTES CAN CHOOSE DELEGATES (UP TO SIX) WHO MAY NOT NECESSARILY BE PLEDGED TO THE SAME PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE. SINCE GOVERNOR MITT ROMNEY HAD ONLY THREE CONVENTION DELEGATES RUNNING UNDER HIS NAME THAT GAVE VOTERS A CHOICE TO VOTE FOR OTHER COMMITTED OR NON-COMMITTED CANDIDATES. IT APPEARS THAT OUT OF RESPECT FOR CONGRESSMAN PAUL’S CAMPAIGN THERE WERE EXTRA VOTES TO GIVE TO OTHER CANDIDATES OR NON-COMMITTED CANDIDATES.
ALTHOUGH DR. PAUL RECEIVED ONLY ONE DELEGATE, HIS TEAM RECEIVED UP TO THREE ALTERNATE DELEGATE SLOTS AND WILL BE WELL REPRESENTED IN OUR SMALL DELEGATION. (EITHER WINNER TAKE ALL OR PROPORTIONAL ALLOCATION RON PAUL’S 29% WIN VERSUS MITT’S 26% LOSS DOES NOT ADD UP ACCURATELY RON PAUL 1 DELEGATE & MITT 7 DELEGATES !!!!! DO I SMELL FRAUD IN THE AIR ??? OR IS SIMPLE MATH A CHALLENGE IN THE USVI ? )
Why Mitt Romney?
BY HERB SCHOENBOHM, ON FEBRUARY 24TH, 2012
Next Tuesday I will be voting for Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. I wanted to share why I have decided to publicly endorse and vote for Mitt Romney. There are four primary reasons for my support:
ONE: He is a strong leader & has a vision to make America strong & prosperous.
TWO: He is uniquely qualified to serve as President – no one is better prepared.
THREE: He can beat Barack Obama in November, early polls showing his strength.
FOUR: Mitt Romney will make Michigan competitive for Republicans in 2012 on the day he wins the nomination.
I have watched the nominating process unfold and as I have said over and over again, there is NOTHING more important for our country and our children than stopping Barack Obama and his policies.
To paraphrase William F. Buckley, I think now, more than ever, it makes sense to support the most conservative candidate who can win…Mitt Romney is that candidate and now is the time to start rallying our forces.
There are several other candidates who have offered a compelling alternative to Barack Obama and his policies. There are more that have come and gone and for one reason or another are NOT in a position to challenge the President this fall.
However, this election is so important and the task at hand so daunting I believe only the strongest, best organized, best financed and best prepared candidate can effectively challenge Barack Obama this fall across our entire country.
Romney’s focus on job creation combined with his Michigan roots and ability to relate to the hopes and dreams of native Michiganders make him Mark Brewer’s worse nightmare.
The most pressing issue facing Michigan and America is JOBS and our economy. No other candidate has the knowledge and experience creating jobs and turning things around. You can look at Mitt’s experience in turning around the Olympics, putting Massachusetts on a strong economic footing while cutting taxes 19 times and his lifetime career in the private sector.
So this coming Tuesday we have a choice as to who will be our Republican nominee?!?
Rick Santorum and his allies are making claims that somehow his policies will be “more” conservative then Mitt Romney’s if elected President. Let us put a few facts on the table.
Romney and Santorum BOTH support reducing federal spending over a phased in period and moving towards a Balanced Budget.
Romney and Santorum BOTH support repealing Obamacare.
Romney and Santorum BOTH support a flatter tax with lower rates.
Romney and Santorum BOTH support traditional marriage.
Romney and Santorum BOTH support pro-life agenda that includes overturning Roe vs Wade.
Romney and Santorum BOTH support Right to Work legislation, although Santorum voted against it.
Romney and Santorum BOTH support a strong defense policy.
Romney and Santorum BOTH support the 2nd Amendment and don’t believe there is a need for additional gun control laws to be passed.
Romney and Santorum BOTH support eliminating and reducing burdensome regulations to help create jobs!
So what’s the difference?
Santorum voted to increase the deficit by TRILLIONS of dollars FIVE separate times.
Santorum eagerly and proudly supports “earmarks” in deficit spending bills.
Santorum voted for federal bailouts for the Salt Lake Olympics and Airline industry.
Santorum voted to federally fund the ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ and a ‘Tea Pot Museum’ amongst others.
Santorum voted for the largest expansion of federal government entitlement in our history supporting the UNFUNDED Medicare Prescription D program.
Santorum voted to confirm now Supreme Court Justice Sotomeyer to the federal bench.
Santorum endorsed party switcher and liberal Arlen Specter for the U.S. Senate.
Santorum has spent most of his career in Washington DC – 16 years in Congress and then as a corporate lobbyist. Santorum has truly become a creature of Washington DC…not of change.
Michigan clearly wants leadership with private sector experience because government has demonstrated they don’t have all the answers. America needs someone who gets it, who’s been there and done that, someone to help restore America’s confidence and greatness. We need something more than another career politician because it’s career politicians have gotten us into this mess and they aren’t going to get us out. Mitt is a conservative businessman and that’s the experience he will bring to the White House to turn our economy around.
To put it succinctly, with 25 years of experience in the private sector, Mitt Romney knows how our economy works and how to implement pro-growth policies that will produce jobs. Mitt is clearly the strongest candidate to take on President Obama and he has the skills needed to rein in spending, control our exploding deficits and bring fiscal sanity back to Washington.
Mitt Romney has taken a common sense conservative approach on issue after issue. From creating the right environment for job creation, to cutting taxes, support for a strong defense – his positions are sound. So, while some question his position as Governor on healthcare, we need to remember he was able to create their state’s program without raising taxes and by implementing a free-market plan, not a government plan. I believe that difference will be a strong issue for us when taking on Obama. He has also been clear that it was a state approach, which may not work in other states. That is why the issue should be addressed at the state level, not the federal level. And he is 100% clear on this: as President he will REPEAL Obamacare, and on day one will give all 50 states waivers from complying with Obamacare.
In the end, our goal is to put America back on the right track. We need to do whatever it takes to win this election and stop the dangerous policies of Barack Obama and his allies in the Democratic Party. They have put our country in a tenuous position economically, abroad and in my opinion – challenged the fundamental constitutional tenants of our limited republican form of government.
As the Detroit News said in their endorsement: “Mitt Romney stands alone among the Republican primary field as the candidate capable of winning the White House, and more importantly, of leading the nation to a prosperous future.”
While the Detroit Free Press in their endorsement said: “He is the only one who has the combination of résumé and bearing to occupy the Oval Office.”
Elections are about choices. And the stakes for our country are too high to ignore and/or just sit on our hands.
I firmly believe that Governor Mitt Romney is the right man, at the right time to step up and serve our country. As with every candidate, there will be things I don’t necessarily agree with or may have done differently myself. However, the ultimate test comes in the comparison to Barack Obama, his policies and Romney’s ability to offer our country a viable alternate.
Romney is tested, he’s ready, he’s committed and he is best prepared for the challenge ahead. I urge you to join me in voting for Mitt Romney to be our next President of the United States of America!
