The more I think and analyze the maneuver by Rand Paul the more I am coming to the conclusions that IT WAS BRILLIANT!
Joining forces with the Republican Establishment has eased the tension between the Ron Paul Supporters and the staunch Republicans...at least from the Republican Establishment point of view.
The first positive result was just announced...
Ron Paul Festival Set for Fairgrounds in Tampa Aug 24-26th
TAMPA, June 12 2012 - The rollercoaster ride for Ron Paul's supporters continues amidst more delegate wins and Senator Rand Paul's controversial endorsement of Romney.
Liberty Unleashed, the nonprofit group incorporated in Florida by Paul supporters specifically to organize Paul Festival, announced today that it had signed a contract with the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa to hold the event there August 24-26. The RNC starts August 27.
Liberty Unleashed and the Fairgrounds needed approval from the RNC Committee on Arrangements (COA) in order to proceed with the event. Both major parties typically lock up hundreds of venues in the host city during the week surrounding their national conventions. Liberty Unleashed had claimed that the COA was blocking the event to alienate Paul's supporters.
We all need to remember that this is a chess match where the Good Guys are thinking 5-6 moves ahead. The RNC was PISSED OFF at the success of the Ron Paul Election Strategy. They have been and would have continued to block Ron Paul's supporters...until now. Now they WANT to bring the Paulites under their wing. They want the support of the Tea Party. They are asking for a GIANT BIG HUG and they will get it.
Then the tide will turn ABRUPTLY when the monetary crash hits and the Paulites and Tea Party will DEMAND the same kind of treatment and respect that they showed the Republican Establishment when their candidate was the shoe-in choice.
Make no mistake. Rand Paul knows the tide is about to turn and this maneuver will secure the support of the rest of the Republican Party when the nation turns to Ron Paul for the answers.
May that foggy Road you choose be the Right Road!
