There has been a blog post that RULE 38 "THE UNIT RULE" ALLOWS any delegate to be free to vote for who they wish regardless of state party bylaws/party rule.
This has gone viral and the information is WRONG.
They claim that RULE 38 conflicts with RULE 15 and they are correct; however, they have not looked at the whole story nor have they understood how the party avoids a conflict between the 2 rules.
Rule 38 "THE UNIT RULE: states : No delegate or alternate delegate shall be bound by any attempt of any state or congressional district to impose the UNIT RULE which is RULE 15 that allows the states to bind their delegates.
This would be a direct conflict of RULE 15; however, the way the party gets around this rule is simple and they have done this for years. They never bind all of their delegates. They allow atleast ONE delegate to be unbound therefor they are not binding all of their delegates therefor they are not enforcing RULE 15 "THE UNIT RULE" and avoids any conflict with RULE 38.
The blog post claims this information is based on an opinion of an attorney, THIS ATTORNEY IS WRONG! A simple look into what the states have done for years to avoid this conflict would be easily explained if this ATTORNEY actually did their research.
This information has given the misconception that any delegate can do what they want and take the easy road, I assure you this is not that case and you will have to put the work in if you want Ron Paul to be the nominee.
