so let me get this straight... the only way this wouldn't have been staged is if Paul had won...?
come on man... this isn't staged, lol, the Republicans just don't want Romney but they don't have another candidate that most Republicans actually seem like they would vote for.
Not necessarily, but yes, one of their main objectives is to marginalize Paul as much as possible. The goal is to prop up anyone not named RP, being that Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich are literally the same person. They gotta keep this fake battle to appear as legitimate as possible. This GOP nomination process is the equivalet of reality TV. Gotta keep the ratings up, while manipulating the situation to ensure the status quo continues. If this wasnt staged then we'd have more candidates in this race who actually represent the best interests of the people. In the end, it is Romney who they will push to win...he's already been selected by the powers that be, (just as was with Bush and Obama) especially considering he comes from the same blood line as Obama, Bush, and all the other presidents of this country with the exception of Van Buren.
It shouldnt be a stretch to say that this proccess is rigged when taking into consideration that all politics are staged at the upper levels for the most part. I cant even think of who the last president this country had was that represented the will of the people versus the corporations, banks, and geopolitical institutions. It's been at least a hundred years. That should speak volumes.
