Last evening I made the mistake of attending the new Central Committee meeting. What a disappointment! If you will all remember the Republican caucus back in the month of March, the real Republicans were threatened by the Ron Paul supporters that they would take over the Republican party and "change" things. Well, I witnessed the so-called change last night and was truly surprised. The Ron Paul supporters, Mark Paul, Nichole Bradley, Michelle and Bob Hohmeier and Jim Muellersman all fell into line with the rest of the Republican participants at the meeting. There were no real changes, it was the same as every other meeting. Why is it when people are with their friends, they have so much courage, but when it comes to standing up for their convictions alone, they cannot do it. Last night was a perfect example!
Ron Paul supporters, what happened to you replacing the current Chair with a Chair of your choice - what happened to the changes that you swore you were going to make? It was fun to witness the so called Ron Paul lions that walked into the room, be reduced to the sheep they were throughout the whole meeting. What happened to their so called Constitutional beliefs? What happened to Nichole Bradley's convictions? When she was with her friends at the Caucus in March, I witnessed her screaming at Derrick Good about stealing the roll. She didn't say a word last night and she didn't vote against Janet Engelbach as the Chair of the Central Committee. In fact, during a roll call vote, none of the Ron Paul people voted against Janet Engelbach as the Chair - they all voted "yes". Oh, how things change when you become a part of the party!
It is so ironic that these Ron Paul supporters have been told and will be expected to support all the Republican candidates that are picked by the voters to represent the Republican party and that excludes Ron Paul. Now, as REPUBLICAN Central Committee members, you will all campaign for those neo-con, party Republicans including Mitt Romney, Derrick Good, George Engelbach, etc. that you swore to fight against during the March caucus. While I write this, I laugh and remember the posturing that went on throughout that twelve hour day in Hillsboro. On second thought, I change what I previously said, this is truly worth the waste of an hour last evening when I attended the NEW Central Committee meeting.
