GOP voters in Nebraska and Oregon voted Tuesday in their respective primaries and handed some more delegates to Mitt Romney.

Complete State-by-State Results: CNN Election Center

Report from Politico:

With almost nothing at stake, Mitt Romney easily won primary contests Tuesday in Nebraska and Oregon, edging closer to formally clinching the GOP presidential nomination.

Taking more than 70 percent of the Nebraska vote with three-quarters of precincts reporting, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee won by nearly 60 percentage points over Rick Santorum, who ended his campaign a month ago. Ron Paul, who announced Monday that he would cease active campaigning in states yet to hold their primaries, nabbed just 9 percent.

In Oregon, the Associated Press called the race for Romney with just over a quarter of precincts reporting in the vote-by-mail state. There, Romney led by a similar margin, nearly 60 percentage points over Paul.

President Barack Obama did not face primary challengers in either state following the embarrassment of a federal inmate winning 40 percent of the West Virginia vote last week.

For weeks the presumptive nominee, Romney largely ignored the two late-voting states, making but one public appearance between them recently: A rally in Omaha last week marked Romney’s only public 2012 campaign event in the state, which was one more than he held in Oregon.

Not much more to gain in these primaries besides the magic number of 1,144 which is what Romney is still shooting for. Looks like he’ll have to wait until into June before he can theoretically pull that many delegates and seal up the nomination. At this point, the delegate counts are speculative until most state GOP organizations hold their state-level conventions and dole them out. The “R12DC” numbers on our 2012 Delegate Tracker reflect only delegates which have been officially allocated.

  1. “For weeks the presumptive nominee, Romney largely ignored the two late-voting states, making but one public appearance between them recently: A rally in Omaha last week marked Romney’s only public 2012 campaign event in the state, which was one more than he held in Oregon.”

    And that is Romney’s strategic mistake, which he keeps making over and over again. The man is not so much presumptive as presumptuous. It is at this stage in a nomination contest when the percentage of uber-casual voters in the primaries tends to go up dramatically, when the numbers of those willing to serve as delegates drops off, and when the truly serious voters have even a greater influence in the party mechanics. By ignoring this reality, Romney is stacking the deck against himself. This is what is happening in state after state as the delegations are embarrassingly NOT Romney delegations at all.

    If you can bring yourself to read an article at The Huffington Post, here is one of the most lucid I’ve seen: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robin-koerner/its-romneys-to-lose-heres_b_1519827.html?ref=fb&src=sp&comm_ref=false

    • Neville — excellent post!

      Exactly what will happen — I predicted it 2 weeks ago (upon hearing of the interpretation of rule #38)!

    • What is “all pro Obama”? If you mean everything at HuffPo is all pro Obama, that is certainly not true. Much, maybe even most, but most certainly not all.

      If you meant the article that I linked, then I think you just haven’t read it yet.

  2. At Tampa — would this be the best Sign to carry?
    Please, submit yours.

    DELEGATES:
    Stop the Fraud–
    Vote your Conscience!
    Ron Paul 2012

    • Surf:

      Good exercise. Dr. Paul has said he has been saddened by what he sees as disrespect. So you’d have to be careful to keep the message positive. And, of course, the name of the game, at this point, seems to be to keep Willard from winning on the first ballot.

      How about–

      RON PAUL ON BALLOT #2.
      ————————————

      I suppose you could slide one in with–

      THE WORLD IS WATCHING

      On one side of a sign.

        • Billy: RP has said he is very disappointed in the rudeness that has been shown by some of his supporters. So you have to consider his wishes.

          Besides, we’re not talking about Democrats. Republicans have always had an iron fist. They will have someone at the door to look at signs. They’ll only allow smiley face signs. They’ll probably also frisk you to make sure you don’t bring in any magic markers. . . .

          What you COULD do is have two signs: One that says “Obama sucks” and another that says “Romney rules.” Then you take the top of the Romney sign and attach it to the bottom of the Obama sign. But you can be sure the storm troopers will get to you before the TV cameras do. . . .

          • Oh I don’t intend to get inside of anything, although it is going to be hot. I’ve lived in Florida for 30 years but spent most summers in Michigan. Thanks for the info on the dual signs though as it will keep the goons away until I can get set up.

            There is a lot of street activity at theses things. (1968 DNC Chicago, LOL)

  3. To one and all…

    Anyone else notice that the R12DC numbers on the top right of these pages seems to have Ron Paul’s Delegate count going down each time?

    According to the current R12DC page, they are…

    Romney 351
    Santorum 143
    Ron Paul 137
    Gingrich 24

    But according to the same R12DC count on this page it’s,…

    Romney 351
    Santorum 149
    Ron Paul 131
    Gingrich 24

    The website is :- http://thereal2012delegatecount.com/

    See for yourself.

    A mistake or a choice?

    Last week Ron Paul had 139 confirmed delegates. Is anything about this ‘election’ accurate?

    • Ron Paul to WIN in Tampa — see HOW below!

      Superb article — must read!

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robin-koerner/its-romneys-to-lose-heres_b_1519827.html?ref=fb&src=sp&comm_ref=false

      Some key points:

      “Romney’s Achilles’ heel is a moral one. It is the sum of all of the cheating that has been done in his favor by the party. For example…
      In Oklahoma, party officials pulled out a ballroom divider to cordon off Ron Paul supporters and shut them out of participation. Later they turned out the lights. Voice votes that were clearly lost were declared won….In Virginia, at a district convention, officials coaxed the Ron Paul delegation outside and then locked the door. The pastor of the church that was hosting the event was, himself, locked outside.”

      (And the parade of GOP frauds in favor of Mitt goes on: nearly in every State!)

      Add to this breaking rule #11 —“…the GOP wasn’t bound by its own rules when it chose to provide material support to Romney while the race was still ongoing.”

      It is the American Way to support an underdog — Ron Paul in this case — “People get very excited about an underdog who can win — especially if he is an underdog that was kept down by nefarious means.”

      Read this superb article — and pass it on!

      • Ron Paul to WIN — Or America to END 2012!
        (there are no other options!)

        Madeline’s comments are on the mild side. ‘Unsustainable’ is a very reserved term for the actual — DISASTROUS.

        To put is simply — the government, now under BO, has created a machine that works as follows:

        Put $3 into it, turn the handle — and out comes $1… (and there is no limit on how many times he can do this — since the Feds will keep on printing money to feed this Devil’s Machine).

        The Main Stream media only reports on what comes out (as “Economic Growth”), but NEVER says how much more was put in (the Government Debt of 3:1 to play this shell game)!

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Je870DhA7TA&feature=player_embedded

        • Har.

          Imagine Rmoney running the government.

          Put in 3 dollars and get nothing back.

          And you’ll lose your job on top of it.

          • Government is an ever growing Parasite — Unchecked it will eventually engulf the Host it feeds on (We The People), until it sucks US dry. At which point it will HAVE to Collapse, since the feeding is over once the people have been bled to death.

            Unfortunately Parasites have no brains — so cannot foresee their own Demise once they end us.

            (there are no other options!)

          • I would think he would run the Federal government much like he ran the state government.

            He will hike up fees, give business a small tax cut then take it all back again and more by closing loop holes and increasing fees.

  4. For anyone concerned about economics, might I remind you of one small fact…

    Money has no intrinsic value. It is merely a tool to aid in the exchange of goods and services.

    People keep forgetting that when they watch barrage after barrage of ‘financial’ TV broadcasts.

    Don’t forget, not for a second, it’s all just a delusion to make you believe someone of no value, has value. The sun will still come out, the rain will still fall, the grass will still be green, the flowers will still blossom and the fruit will still ripen.

    Don’t be fooled. Take it all with a pinch of salt.

    This imaginary debt was not created by you, was not spent by you nor on your behave nor with your permission, and it’s not yours to pay back to anyone.

    • Meeman: Good point.

      Reminds me of an old Twilight Zone I saw this week. Several guys heist a truckload of gold. Then, in order to avoid being caught, they put themselves in suspended animation for a hundred years. When they wake up, they kill each other to have it all. The last guy, walking through the desert, offers a person in the next century an entire gold bar for a glass of water. The guy takes it, but when he gets back to his vehicle, he tells his girlfriend, then tosses the gold bar away, saying this guy acted like he was living before they figured out how to manufacture gold like it was sand.

      Things only have “value” as long as people agree that they have value.

      • Yeah but the law of probability says that gold will be of value for a long time to come if history can in any way reflect the future.

    • The only way Rmoney can win the nomination (so he can lose to the BO) — described in exactly 27 words!

  5. Ron Paul is the best US candidate. He should be president. Why is it so hard to understand for republican electorate? If Romney would be president, he would ruin USA.

    • *Updated* Massachusetts GOP Denies The Will Of The People; Rules Provisional Ballots Won’t Be Counted

      FIGHT AGAINST THIS PERFIDY!

      The Massachusetts GOP has indicated that they intend to throw out provisional ballots cast by legally registered Republicans during the April 28th state wide caucus.

      http://www.redmassgroup.com/diary/14692/sources-say-massgop-…

      The party printed these ballots, gave very precise and lengthy instructions on how they would be handled, and now they are throwing these votes away. Most likely these votes would have a positive effect on the Liberty candidates, so it is in their best interest to throw out these ballots. Some of the voters effected by this spent over 5 hours to cast their votes, only to see them thrown away.

      Here is the video of the District 6 chairman explaining exactly how they would be handled.

      (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_inHhOPNLk&feature=plcp)

      We have also released contradictory information from the district 8 caucus as well. More video soon…

      (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p88UswpMDEw&feature=youtu.be)

      • I think this is an illustration of how the major parties work:

        Democrats count the votes of dead people.

        Republicans DON’T count the votes of live people.

        • Pretty good, whatever it takes lie, cheat, & steal has always been the specialty of the house for ether party

  6. Goethe

    Exactly. The English Pound is called that because it was worth a Pound of Silver. Now, an ounce of silver will cost around £60.

    Something is only as valuable as Someone-Else is prepared to pay for it.

    Goods and Services… and ‘is it any use’.

    Afteral, why have a phone charger if you live in an Amish barn? LOL

    The Federal Reserve claims that all the money they have printed for them is theirs. I say, have it all back and pay your own debts with it, so the rest of us can have zero-interest governmental money printed and use that to… trade our goods, services and useful commodities.

    Give the Fed it’s toy money back and make it worthless by refusing to accept it as having any value.

    End of Fed. End of their debt on your shoulders. End of poverty.

    Oops,… I’ve just solved your financial problems.

    • My 2 cents:

      1) Donate to Ron Paul as much Money (Federal Reserve NOTES) as you can, to keep the fight for Liberty going (this is a no-brainer: when Ron Paul wins, your donations will be justified — if he gets cheated and loses, your money will shortly become Worthless…so you’ve lost Nothing of Value).

      2) Ron Paul Campaign to set up IMMEDIATELY a Law Team to BLOCK any, and all attempts, to have currently won delegates from being hijacked by shadowy, nefarious means by the Rmoney owned GOP/RNC.

      3) RP Law Team to be present at ALL future State Conventions (it is UNFORGIVABLE to allow Fraud ON THE SPOT unchallenged.

      4) All Individuals that feel they have been harmed by what they CONSIDER Unjust and Corrupt Procedures, MUST file Lawsuits INDIVIDUALLY (unless a Team has be SET) against the perceived perpetrators (in our ridiculously litigious society, ANYONE can sue ANYONE over THE LOSS of a ham-sandwich…). If you have funds, get a Lawyer, if not, CONTACT the ACLU — they’ll love to take down THE ROTTEN BODY that’s the current GOP (here is what they claim …to do for FREE… “National organization advocating individual rights, by litigating, legislating, and educating the public on a broad array of issues affecting individual freedom…”).

      5) Ron Paul’s Campaign MUST stay on track — electing as many delegates as possible (while the RP higher-ups inform The Mitt that any further frauds will backfire in the end-game…Behave NOW Dear Mitt…meaning Rmoney will get crushed by the BO if he chooses to keep alienating via obvious fraud the Republicans that are voting for Ron Paul.

      6) Expose the BLATANT FRAUD being perpetrated by the Republican Party in collusion with the Mitt’s acquiescence! Share ALL videos showing this PERFIDY. Hammer on the BREAKING of rule #11. Take them to court ASAP (the EFFECT of this is MOST POWERFUL NOW, than the eventual court ruling later).

      7) DO NOT acknowledge the possibility of Ron Paul to run 3rd Party NOW — ONLY after Tampa, is this to be discussed.

      8) Fight with All your Might to do what’s Right — assure Ron Paul goes to Tampa (with 5+ States plurality) so he Rocks the House (and the delegates abiding by RNC rule #38 will do their honest best)!

      This is plain if you are a REAL AMERICAN —

      Ron Paul to WIN, or America to END 2012!
      (there are no other options!)

      • Cripes, Surf, It’s bad enough to file long tracts to all possible threads, but the same tract twice in the same thread?

        I don’t think third-party is a viable option, regardless, now. We could have drafted Paul to the Libertarian ticket. And RP could have been a good AmericansElect candidate, since their goal was to find a “centrist,” and Paul appealed to all sides with some part of his agenda.

        Now, if RP ran third party, he’ll have to run AGAINST the Libertarian Party. And it’s a little late to wage battles to get on 50 ballots.

        Paul will probably get a plank or two into the GOP platform, but when was the last time anyone even looked at a platform after the conventions are over?

        Seems to me, the only focus now should be on getting maximum possible people to the remaining state conventions, challenge each and every Romney delegate, and then pursue the “Rule 38” battle. Michigan was a washout.

  7. the peoples opinions you see here do not reflect the true feelings of Ron Paul. Please ignore them, and don’t worry their opinions shouldn’t mean anything to you. They pretend to know “facts” ( extremely out of date) and think they know the candidates( they don’t)Thank you for reading the above article. ( not the comments) have a wonderful day and feel free to browse the many other articles at this website.

    • And, who, exactly, is “manhunter” to say that he knows “the true feelings of Ron Paul”? Is it by telepathy, perhaps? Some sort of Vulcan mind-meld, is it?

      Seems to me that one “true feeling” is that Dr. Paul would not say that other people’s opinions “shouldn’t mean anything to you.” That is definitely untrue.

      • It looks like Slick Willie’s people are catching on to the delegate game. They found ways to minimize the number of Ron Paul delegates in Michigan. It will probably be harder from here on out. And the national party is going to be changing the rules, of course. I suspect a lawsuit will have to be filed to avoid a backroom deal to make the numbers add up for the presumptuous nominee.

        • My 2 cents:

          1) Donate to Ron Paul as much Money (Federal Reserve NOTES) as you can, to keep the fight for Liberty going (this is a no-brainer: when Ron Paul wins, your donations will be justified — if he gets cheated and loses, your money will shortly become Worthless…so you’ve lost Nothing of Value).

  8. Arkansas and Kentucky are up tomorrow.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say Ron Paul will get about 12% of the ‘official’ vote. Makes you wonder why anyone takes the time to actually register and vote.

    I will laugh my arse off if Ron Paul gets less than 60% of the vote in either Texas or Cali. Even the blind can tell the difference between mud and manure.

    What you need is live webcams at every voting station with someone stating there and then what the vote count is before the MSM and corporate shills decide what numbers they want to tell you. If you’re not prepared to fight with vigour then just sit down and await instructions from your masters. LOL

    • Just one big diversion, MSM, voter fraud in every foreign country. Oh, yeah they are quick to report on that, big time.

      • Billy

        It’s the old…

        Nothing to see here… look over there… (hides smoking gun behind back)

        • This FRAUD has to be LEGALLY challenged in Court!

          No campaign money needs to be spent on a Law Team (RP volunteers that are lawyers could do it); Filing INDIVIDUAL lawsuits is most EFFECTIVE to expose and identify BY NAME the culprits (bringing out the shadowy slugs responsible for fraud under the LIGHT of NATIONAL SCRUTINY) not the eventual outcome in the distant future!

          ACLU can be very effective in just that capacity (they’ll love to gouge chunks of the decaying flesh from the ROTTEN BODY that is the current GOP/RNC)!
          ————————————————-

          P.S. What happened to all Rmoney supporters posting here? Have the blatant non-stop frauds committed on his behalf, in each state at each level, finally shamed them into silence?

          • I did check out a few other political blogs and they run about the same as this one. A few say RP has no chance but won’t say why they support Mitt other than he is the only one that can beat Obama and we should all get behind him. Nothing new.

            • Billy: I am an old fart, and in all my life, I have never seen such lack of interest in a candidate as with the “presumptuous candidate.” Even his most die-hard supporters say things like, “he worked hard and deserves the nomination,” or “he can get enough Wall Street money to win,” or “he was second last time, and that’s how we do things.”

              There was not another candidate in the race who had less respect. Huntsman was only a “blip,” but his supporters were pretty ardent.

              GOP slogan for 2012:

              WE GIVE UP–IT’S ROMNEY!!

            • Couldn’t agree more. Only people I find that support Mitt is because they hate Obama but that is shallow motivation to get out and vote.

        • On one hand, Rmoney’s campaign can cheat, defraud, steal money from campaign funds for any purpose he desires, and GET AWAY WITH IT, because, the GOP/RNC have given Rmoney a Green Light to do this. ASSURING him they’ll back him up REGARDLESS of how blatant it becomes (some GOP scape-goats may take the fall IF PROSECUTED eventually, but Rmoney is assured he’s UNTOUCHABLE)!

          On the other hand, Ron Paul’s campaign is being MINUTELY Scrutinized by the same CROOKS (GOP/RNC) to catch it in the tiniest INFRACTION…so THESE CROOKS can put a stop to it!

          (“Some are more equal than others” — *Animal Farm* by George Orwell, at work today.)

          Ron Paul’s campaign must assemble a Law Team (volunteers, not paid by campaign funds) to combat the Rmoney-Fraud-Machine that is BLATANTLY CHEATING at all levels!

        • Contact the ACLU (they’ll love to bite into the perfidious GOP’s frauds). The ACLU is set up (and government financed to the brim) to File lawsuits FOR FREE on behalf of Individuals who claim their freedoms have been usurped!

          Use these ultra-Liberals to your advantage (the enemy of my enemy is my friend…)!

  9. LAWYERS FOR RON PAUL — contact them about the Fraud!

    There is a FaceBook group called Watch the Vote 2012. It was created by a member of the Lawyers for Ron Paul so there is a lot of relevant information and connections to the legal help that is available. The group, Lawyers for Ron Paul, is putting together an offense to take the guilty parties down.

  10. Ron Paul to WIN — Or America to END 2012!

    Here is the difference btwn Perfidy Mitt and Honest Ron Paul:

    On one hand (more apt: underhanded) — the Mitt (who’s only real support is NOT for him, but AGAINST the BO — the usual voting for “the lesser of two evils” mentality) knows he needs to resort to all frauds and crookedness, to have a chance to win the nomination (in order to lose to the BO). These are the forces of the Dark Side.

    On the other hand — there is Light! Ron Paul’s message of what is TRUE is irrefutable. It has ignited the hopes of all good people in our nation (and around the world) that Truth will win out over Lies, Good will trample Evil, Liberty will prevail against Tyranny, Government will bow to the Will of The People (not the other way around as the BO and the Mitt desire), all senseless Wars will be put to an end (we’ll speak softly again, but also carry a big stick), The Law of the Land will be the Original US Constitution (and all the hundreds-of-thousands of OPPRESSIVE Laws, Rules and Regulations passed unconstitutionally will be NEGATED), that the Citizen will be Sovereign AGAIN (and Government will become the Subject), that US Money will have Intrinsic Value AGAIN (not Promissory Notes printed ad hoc by a Private and Corrupted to the CORE Organization: The Feds) thus guaranteeing Prosperity once again…and the list goes on!

    Despite the organized effort by the controlled media (here and abroad) and the nefarious means of our crooked politicians and their hired thugs, The People have embraced the Last American Patriot — Dr. Ron Paul — and the liberty flame that burns within us WILL NEVER be extinguished!

    Our time is NOW (since we’ll reach the Point of No Return if the BO or the Mitt steal our Nation away from US) — We, the REAL AMERICAN PEOPLE, will fight for this cause that is Just and Honorable! You, the Despots in Power NOW, may spill our blood, but unless you kill us all, We, The Real American People, WILL END your reign of tyranny and corruption!

    Ron Paul to WIN — Or America to END 2012!
