The Libertarian Pary conjured 6 rounds of voting Saturday before they electing Bob Barr as their Presidential nominee. Ron Paul took several votes that weren't counted due to the fact he wasn't an official nominee. Of course, the antics of the Libertarian Party lend themselves to protest. The final vote at the Libertarian Convention included 30 cast for "None of the above". Paul himself dubbed the Republican Leadership over the last decade as the rise of the "Neo Cons" .
Votes not counting, has overshadowed Paul's relationship with the Republican party as he's criticized and legally challenged vote counting methodologies in several states starting with the first Iowa Presidential Straw Poll.
On Friday, Paul will speak in Branson, MO host of the Missouri Republican Convention billed as a Ron Paul Freedom Rally.
