Ron Paul’s Iowa success and the media cover-up

     Ron Paul does his job in Iowa, the media cover-up begins.
Out of 16,892 votes cast in the Iowa Straw Poll last Saturday, Texas congressman, Ron Paul, came within 152 votes of upsetting Congresswoman Michelle Bachman in her own home state.  The close call was ignored by the national media.  On Sunday, Bachman, who was born in Waterloo, Iowa, appeared on five national news programs carried by ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and the Fox News Channel.  Paul was invited on none.  The following day, former Minnesota governor, Tim Pawlenty, withdrew from the race and was featured by all of the networks all day long.  Once more, Ron Paul was ignored.
         To give you an idea of how staggering Paul’s victory was, and why the national media risks a total disconnect with its readers and viewers in their effort to ignore it, he won twice as many votes as Tim Pawlenty and almost as many votes as Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, New Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman combined.
         There’s more.  Michelle Bachman was a regular attendee of Dr. Paul’s famous weekly congressional meetings until she was re-elected to congress in her own right.  She openly claims leadership of the Tea Party that was inspired and started as a Ron Paul fundraiser.  Except for her lapse in voting for Nancy Peolosi’s stimulus bill, she has been careful to mimic Ron Paul’s votes in the House.  The combined total of the Bachman-Paul votes amounted to a Tea Party takeover of the GOP.  But once more the media uniformly declined to make an observation.
        Some reporters were at times schizophrenic in their post Straw Poll analysis.  Executives had apparently prepared them.  There were talking points for what to say if Bachman wins and what to say if Ron Paul wins.  Sometimes they couldn’t get it straight.  A pundit would say that it was a stunning victory for Bachman and a significant event since it knocked out Pawlenty out of the race and crippled fundraising for the lower tier candidates.  Then the same pundit would add in the same sentence that it really didn’t mean anything.   No one offered their viewers any explanation for why the networks were spending three days talking about something that didn’t mean anything.  A reporter from one network told me that they had 900 journalists and technicians covering the Straw Poll.
        The Ron Paul Campaign arrived in Des Moines on Wednesday buoyed by a CNN national poll showing their candidate ahead of Bachman and Pawlenty.  But they soon had a taste of what was to come in that night’s presidential debates.  They were greeted at their headquarters’ hotel by the headlines of the Washington Examiner declaring “All Eyes on Romney, Bachman and Pawlenty.”  The Examiner, along with Fox News, would co-host the evening’s debate.
        The debate kicked off with a series of questions to Bachman and Romney.  Seven minutes into the debate, Ron Paul was asked one question and given one minute to answer.  He would not be heard from again until 38 minutes into the program, after all the other candidates gave their answers to multiple questions.  This included a lively exchange between Bachman and Pawlenty.  The debate within the debate was launched by questions from Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, who occasionally added a provocation to keep things going and seemed perfectly delighted to have a presidential debate turn into an infomercial for Bachman and Pawlenty.
        What was happening did not go unnoticed by the national media.  Although on air discussions were rare, private stories abound.  And one from an MSNBC journalist, of all things.  (MSNBC producers were intercepted in their own debate telling Chris Matthews in his ear piece, “Don’t go to Paul, don’t go to Paul!”)
Fox News has been a refuge for discarded and exiled journalists, often conservative, whose views angered management at other media corporations or were not sufficiently doctrinaire.  To see some of these same journalists, who had been boycotted and restricted  in their own profession, now shutting out Dr. Paul, was like watching an abused child grow up to be the abuser.
        Predictably, the multimillion dollar Fox-Bachman Infomercial saved the day for her.  But it probably wouldn’t have mattered.  Knowing that the race was tight, Chris Wallace announced on Friday that regardless of what happened at the Straw Poll, his Sunday guest would be Michelle Bachman.  It was apparent that Fox News had decided against the Ron Paul candidacy and was willing to risk the scorn of violating its own motto “fair and balanced” to achieve its ends.
        Ron Paul supporters should not panic at this media snobbery.  Ronald Reagan won in a landslide in 1980, in spite of unanimous and vitriolic attacks from the media.  He was portrayed as racist, a warmonger and an extremist.  Reagan went directly to the television airwaves with his own message.  Ron Paul tested that in Iowa with stunning success.  Iowa showed that given a small taste of the truth, without the media filter, people will choose Ron Paul.  The real test to his campaign will be decided in his next money bomb.  If it works, he will compete on the airwaves in the Iowa Caucuses and he will win.

    Ron Paul is winning! The media is digging their own grave as far as I am concerned.

  2. Tom kunst says:

    Ron Paul could take Congressman Justin Amash’s approach with frequent posts to Facebook, along with an explanation for every vote. Mainstream media could ignore him and he could still get his message across.

  3. rob says:

    They actually missed an even bigger story than that. Ron Paul polled a mere 7% in the DesMoines Register poll in June. He came on to win 28% in the straw poll and had overtaken Bachmann in some national polls. Ron Paul was surging and hopefully he still is. But the media refuses to cover the story and even seems bent on destroying it. They seem determined to make the “Ron Paul can’t win” theme a self-fulfilling prophecy. The problem is that “story” gets harder and harder to maintain as Ron Paul moves up in national and local polls and attracts more and more attention.

    Of course, no one pointed out the absurdity of the media coverage better than Jon Stewart who makes his living covering the absurd.

    Meanwhile, internet coverage of Ron’s Iowa performance has been extensive. Here is the media’s big problem. They now have competition.

  4. Kevin says:

    The GOP has let down the american people by spending us into mindboggling debt. Now President Obama is taking that to the extreme. I am looking for a candidate that will stop the spending and make some real cuts. Ron Paul looks like the man for the job. The puzzling thing is the GOP sees Ron Paul as a “problem”.

    Brilliant observations, Doug, but scary implications. Why are BOTH sides of the aisle affraid of Ron Paul’s limited government message? I hate to admit it, but Jon Stewart got it right: http://www.ronpaul2012.com/2011/08/16/jon-stewart-is-the-man/

  6. Nicky Nelson says:

    Great article – thank you. It’s OK, We The People are reporting for them: My comment on Politico’s puppet story: Reporting on one globalist bankster puppet fighting against the other – thanks for the puppet show. Would be nice to get some real news, like the Ron Paul media blackout. I guess I’ll report for you.

    Ron Paul wins the Iowa GOP debate taking 54% of the votes! The poll is taken down and the win is not reported. GO RON PAUL 2012!

    Dr. Paul comes in “second” in the Iowa Straw Poll: trailing by less than 1%! No post interviews with Dr. Paul, but an in-depth interview with the 10th place loser! Headline: Bachmann wins the Straw Poll, Pawlenty comes in third – guess the media can’t count to 2 and can only count in odd numbers.

    An amazing win by Bachmann who only received 11% of the vote in the debate and is a 3rd generation Iowan who’s friends and family and their friends and families voted feverishly for her. Helping to increase her votes, 6,000 Randy Travis tickets were purchased to give away, but only once the people registered at her table and voted FIRST for the “free” entertainment. Note: Only Iowa residents can vote in the Iowa Straw Poll.

    Rick Perry, who attended the Bilderberg meeting in 2007 and who has been groomed for the presidency by the globalist ever since, jumps into the race and takes second place simply by the media not reporting who was really in second place. Perry, a Democrat, I mean, RINO Republican, was Al Gore’s campaign manager. This Tea Party fraud boasts about the increase in minimum wage jobs and takes the credit for the oil boom in Texas. Perry knows how to increase profits for Big Pharma company Merck, who he has deep financial ties with by attempting to make the deadly Gardasil vaccine mandatory for little girls, but is stopped in his tracks – was a good idea while it lasted. Perry is a loving man according to dozens of strippers and prostitutes says a former colleague. But it doesn’t matter, the media will not report it and Rick Perry looks good and talks about God, so he’s got a real shot.

    Michelle Bachmann is a non-issue, but is thrown in to distract from the transition from Romney to Perry to take on RON PAUL. Nobody will notice and nobody will report, so all in all it is going well for the war mongering lunatics who have taken over the United States of America.

    I signed it Dennis Miller Politics LOL

  7. Matthew Travers says:

    It’s really unfortunate that many Americans rely so heavily on getting their political information from the talking heads of the major media outlets who are in bed with those who could care less about the American people. R.P. is the one candidate that has the monetary intelligence and backbone to stand up to the Powers that control this country and say STOP! enough already. It’s time to make America the land of the great again. Not the land of the corporations!

  8. There are 2 key differences between Reagan and Paul:

    1. Reagan had a personality,
    2. Reagan had much better ideas.

  9. Reagan endorsed Paul back in the day. Ideas give this a spin
    “A Time for Choosing” by Ronald Reagan

    There is only one man running for president who’s ideas sound like this

    • tex2 says:

      You need to listen again. Reagan didn’t advocate tucking tail an retreating, and he didn’t do it 20 years later when I was an officer in the US Navy visiting numerous ports around the world SHOWING them the USA supports them and they need not look to the USSR for support. Reagan actively supported many countries around the world resisting the USSR and other commies. Ron Paul can’t dream of tying Ronald Reagan’s shoes.

      • acptulsa says:

        You’re right. Because all of Reagan’s shoes are gone by now.

        So, how is any president supposed to defeat the U.S.S.R. today, my friend? So far as I can see, the primary mission of our military (other than going where yellowcake uranium isn’t and going where bin Laden isn’t) is securing minerals for oil companies that underpay their taxes…

        Have fun living in the Eighties. Let us know when the Talking Heads get back together and Molly Ringwald turns seventeen again.

      • Reagan did not, as he promised he would, abolish the Department of Education, but expanded it. He did not, as he promised, reduce the size and influence of the federal establishment back within the limits imposed upon it by the Constitution. He did not lower taxes. He raised them. He did not cut government spending – it doubled on his watch, outpacing the spending increases of Carter and Clinton by large orders of magnitude.

      • tex2 says:

        The shoes may be gone, but the point remains. Ron Paul is NOTHING compared to Reagan. NOTHING.

        Newsflash! bin Laden is dead. LOL You can’t see very far, can you? LOL

        Have fun being stupid and not learning from history. Let us know when you wake up! LOL

      • tex2 says:

        A president can’t do everything he wants to do, there’s this little document called the Constitution and Congress. On balance, I think he did a great job, most people under 40 don’t even remember the Cold War. Reagan lowered some taxes, and raised others, so you’re another fucking LIAR. I think this is a fair assessment of his tax record: http://money.cnn.com/2010/09/08/news/economy/reagan_years_taxes/index.htm

        Reagan won the Cold War. It cost money, but it was his lifelong goal to put an end to the USSR, and he won without firing a bullet (at least any publicly known/unclassified).

      • tex2 says:

        Reagan also GREW the economy to pay for the Cold War, and created millions of jobs in the process. That’s why the charts on my earlier posted link show the percentages they do.

  10. Jason says:

    If there is one thing that MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News can unite on its creating a media blackout of Ron Paul.

  11. Nicky Nelson says:

    Are we living in the USSA? FACEBOOK’S CENSORSHIP & THE MEDIA’S SILENCE IS TELLING… the real story that is

    Jon Stewart’s hilarious take on the recent media blackout regarding presidential candidate Ron Paul’s success was hilarious ‘I Mean, F*ck That Guy, Right?’ It made us all laugh, however, every person in America, regardless of who they support, should be horrified by this misuse of power. How much power? Well, enough to control ALL of the main stream media outlets after Ron Paul’s success in Winning the Iowa GOP Debate (54% FOX News Debate Poll that was pulled down and not reported) and his triumph virtually tying for First Place in the Iowa Straw Poll (coming in 2nd by under 1% with no post interviews, and omissions in stories and headlines for days)

    In addition, Ron Paul supporters attempting to keep people informed of the facts on the Internet were also banned by Facebook for posting relevant news on Ron Paul pages during this media blackout, myself being one of them, and many were simply censored.

    As a Ron Paul supporter, who has seen him repeatedly poll at over 50%; CNN, TIME Magazine, MSNBC and of course FOX News’ own Iowa Debate Poll to name a few virtually unreported polls, I am outraged! The owners of these media outlets (5 or 6 Corp. control ALL our info, pretty scary) and the people they work for (Globalist Banksters & Politicians/Federal Reserve shareholders/Industrial War Complex Profiteers; one in the same perhaps) have no right to ATTEMPT TO ROB AMERICANS OF THEIR CHOSEN LEADER, WHOMEVER THAT MAY BE. Their job is to report the news and facts, and they don’t. Nobody, not one, came forward to report the truth during this critical time of victory. NONE!

    Ron Paul is not electable? Really? Not electable by who? Not electable by the corrupt elites he will be putting out of business when he wins! He is the only candidate that has proven he can beat Obama, and this incident should be a wake up call to everybody proving through silence and censorship, that without a doubt RON PAUL IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE NOT OWNED BY THESE DANGEROUS INDIVIDUALS. That scares the hell out of the war mongering profiteers, central banks and media that currently control this country. They have proven they will stop at nothing to keep this control and protect their profits. And I imagine, they will be pulling for ANY other candidate besides Ron Paul. Ron Paul has promised to do what poor President Kennedy tried to; stop the wars and killing, protect our civil liberties and make sure we return to sound money, which will create jobs in a free-market. President Kennedy signed Executive Executive Order 11110 giving the US the ability to create its own money backed by silver that would have put the criminals in the “Federal” Reserve out of business. 5-months later he was assassinated. Let’s hope Ron Paul does not meet that same fate.

    Don’t Americans get to decide who they want to elect as President of the United States of America? I hope so, because I personally don’t want my President being picked by the spin doctors riding on the merry-go-round at the “no-spin zone” and other fraudulent media outlets to. These irresponsible so called journalist have shown their true colors; ALL OF THEM and their “expert” deceitful silly guests. I don’t have time to watch their puppet shows and will be turning to the Internet, and alternative news outlets for my news (eccentric as they may be) such as Adam Kokesh, RT, Alex Jones, and even Mike Adams searching for facts so I can make informed decisions. At this point, there is more TRUTH in an infomercial, than in the lame stream media.

      I couldn’t agree with you more Nicky! Excellent response to Doug’s piece. I had no idea about the Facebook censorship. It makes sense when you realize that *uckerberg was at the CEO meeting that Obama held not long ago.

      • Nicky Nelson says:

        Thanks Matthew – Yes, that one got me banned from Politico entirely yesterday. Many have been banned from Fox and their is a protest organized for August 27th for Fox News. We started a group on F B to see how many people were banned during the media blackout and since starting the group last night we have 31 people so far. Here is the name of that group, so if you know anybody, or can post to find people that have been censored for political statements, please spread the word for us. We can’t post on FB pages; only walls and groups for 15-days. lol

        GO RON PAUL 2012!

        Ron Paul doesn’t stand a chance with the media. If you think the media is hard on the other Republicans, just imagine what they’ll do with this nut-job. LOL

      • Nicky Nelson says:

        Tex, I find it interesting that people think that true freedom is nuts. That minding your own business is isolationism. That there is something wrong with wanting peace and not war. That wanting to return this country to strength, prosperity, and a strong, sound economic monetary system which is what our founding fathers did is crazy. These are the same people who have a difficult time thinking for themselves and rely on faux news for their information. The intelligent, educated, peace-loving Americans who understand what is really going on in this country know what has to be done to get this country back on track. That’s why we are loyal and support Ron Paul.

        Dr. Paul is a brilliant economist, who served in our military, has NEVER voted in opposition of the Constitution in 30-years, is up at 5:00 every morning to run 5-8 miles, then goes into work to read treasonous bills and tries to draft bills to repeal them, deals with the corrupt insane war mongering politicians that our uneducated American public put into office because they ‘sound good’, is busy campaigning and dealing with the media’s daily schemes, actually READS the bills before him (unlike 99% of the elected officials), and works endless hours to protect this country and our freedoms. You should be ashamed of yourself for the lack of intelligence you put forth. Please educate yourself before you open your mouth and LOL.

      • “free speech exposes what a nutjob Ron Paul and his supporters are!!! LOL”

        How is ending the Federal Reserve insane? They are a creature born of secrecy and have almost total power over our monetary policy. They can keep printing out money that will further devalue the dollar, which is a form of default.

        Our dollar is going to become ruthless if the Federal Reserve does not stop printing money; we are going to go into hyperinflation– Weimar Republic.

        Why can’t we cut the 980B- Trillion of dollars from our foreign affairs. Please note, foriegn affiars are counted differently than military spending.
        Link: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2010/jul/15/ron-paul/ron-paul-says-us-spends-1-trillion-foreign-policy/

        “Ron Paul claims that the U.S. spends $1 trillion a year on foreign policy. Our experts acknowledged that the figure largely depends on one’s definition of “foreign policy.” Changing the definition means altering the expenses that one includes in the calculation. There was disagreement, for example, on whether to include the interest payments on debt-financed military spending and how to calculate that debt.

        Still, give or take, most of the numbers that the experts threw at us come relatively close to, or even exceed, the $1 trillion mark. We find that Paul’s underlying point is valid, and rate this one True”.

        Why can’t we legalize marijuana? I am not for it, but we spend 40 Billion dollars a year in trying to fight it. We are losing that war. Drugs still come into the United States. The drug cartels are still making billions off this blackmarket. Guess who feels the suffering from those cartels? Have you decided to go into Mexico? The drug cartels are massacring people down there, to stay in power! Our persistency for “morality” is in effect killing people!

        If marijuana were legalized, that would be taking one of the money making cash crops away from the cartels!

        That would mean we are not spending 40 Billion a year on the war on drugs(http://www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v08/n913/a03.html), or that 40 Billion could then be used to target heroin……

        Oh! On that note, Ron Paul does not support legalizing heroin; that was a “gotcha” question thrown at him, at the Iowa debate.
        Here is the Piers Morgan interview where Ron Paul repudiates that claim.

        Watch from 8:00-9:40: He defends himself greatly.

        Now, do you have any other complaints based off of Ron Paul and his supporters being “nutjobs”?

      • tex2 says:

        Nicky,

        That was stupid. I will now proceed to deconstruct every single one of your idiotic statements.

        Tex, I find it interesting that people think that true freedom is nuts. —> TRUE freedom includes responsibilities, not isolationism.

        That minding your own business is isolationism. —> We ARE minding our own business in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. Would you rather we have 9/11 on a weekly basis on American soil? Are you HIGH?

        That there is something wrong with wanting peace and not war. —> Ronald Reagan also wanted peace, but he wasn’t so naive to think he could crawl in his shell and click his heels 3 times to make it happen. Get a CLUE!

        That wanting to return this country to strength, prosperity, and a strong, sound economic monetary system which is what our founding fathers did is crazy. —> I never said that is crazy, but Ron Paul’s methods of getting there won’t work.

        These are the same people who have a difficult time thinking for themselves and rely on faux news for their information. —> Which news would you suggest, the Ron Paul lapdog news? LOL

        The intelligent, educated, peace-loving Americans who understand what is really going on in this country know what has to be done to get this country back on track. —> You just said a lot of nothing, except for excluding yourself from the first item mentioned above.

        That’s why we are loyal and support Ron Paul. —> Why? For saying a bunch of nothings? Now you sound like you voted for Barry during the last election. Did you?

        Dr. Paul is a brilliant economist, who served in our military, has NEVER voted in opposition of the Constitution in 30-years, is up at 5:00 every morning to run 5-8 miles, then goes into work to read treasonous bills and tries to draft bills to repeal them, deals with the corrupt insane war mongering politicians that our uneducated American public put into office because they ‘sound good’, is busy campaigning and dealing with the media’s daily schemes, actually READS the bills before him (unlike 99% of the elected officials), and works endless hours to protect this country and our freedoms. —> Economists are usually wrong, Major Hasan, who killed/wounded dozens a few years ago was in the military, many others also have never voted “in opposition to the Constitution” (whatever THAT means, as if the Constitution tells you how to vote on every single issue – then why even have a Congress?), running is not the same as being logical, Ron is famous for not getting anywhere on his “tries to draft bills to repeal treasonous bills” (whatever THAT means! LOL), would rather tuck tail and run that fight for liberty like our Founding Fathers did, needs to keep campaigning and dealing with the media so we can learn even more what a nut-job he is, READING a bill is NOT the same as understanding it, and I don’t consider his isolationism protecting me and my freedoms. WHEW. QED LOL

        You should be ashamed of yourself for the lack of intelligence you put forth. Please educate yourself before you open your mouth and LOL.

      • Doc Strange says:

        @tex2… As a Ron Paul supporter and some one who honors freedom I ask you why you believe he is nuts?
        the fact that he predicted the economic collapse in 2003?

        the fact that he wants to end the pointless wars… do you like the fact we are killing thousands of innocent ppl all over the world?

        the fact he wants the Office of the president to abide by the laws of our nation.. or do you enjoy the president being told what to do by the UN and Nato? are you a Texan or another import from Europe wanting to see fundamental change in our republic?

        the fact he wants to seal our borders and stop the illegal flow of Mexicans into our country. do you enjoy the fact that your grand-childern are being dumb down so that the foreign speaking children wont be left behind.

        Here is a Powerful fact that is coming to life as Obama continues to ruin our Country
        please use your powerful pea sized brain to think big picture…

        A Ron Paul presidency doesn’t terrify many Democrats like a Romney, Perry, or Bachmann presidency does. This is important, since Democrats now a days are far more likely to come out to vote against the Fox news GOP nominee than to vote for Obama.
        However… this is where it gets tricky for you…Should Paul win the nomination, then one of his greatest strengths is that he won’t scare off disaffected Democrats.

        also in regards to your statement he cant win… all the man does is win… no matter what.

        CPAC Straw Poll; Ron Paul won with 31%, Romney was second with 22%, Palin third at 7%, then Pawlenty at 6%, Mike Pence (congressman from Indiana) 5%, Huckabee 4%.

        Ron Paul just won his House seat primary by a whopping 70%. He won 81% to 11%. Ron Paul will grab more headlines when he wins the general election in November.

        Please Tex2 please try I know the TV box is telling you something different you might have to go oout on a limb and come up with your own opion if your still capable… A lot of old people it is to late for but I have faith in you, please hear the inner-voice screaming for you to wake up and do your own research and form your own thoughts.
        I will Pray for you tonight Tex2 and know you can turn it around God Bless.

        That was as far as I would ever want to travel into the black hole of unoriginal ignorance you call a “thought” process. Good day Tex!

      • I want to amend: I meant worthless, not ruthless*.

      • tex2 says:

        Looks like Ron Paul is responsible for the media coverup. He hasn’t responded to Bill O’Reilly’s invitation to be interviewed. Ron likes to make speeches but can’t answer questions about his positions. He doesn’t have a chance. If he can’t face O’Reilly, he is unelectable: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/bill-oreilly-why-is-rep-ron-paul-whining-about-media-coverage-and-dodging-me/

    • Nicky Nelson says:

      Tex, the media would rather ANY candidate, democrat or republican win than Ron Paul – sounds crazy, but it’s true. They are all the same; they all work for or are owned by the same people; globalist banksters. That’s the critical difference. I can’t make you understand, it is something YOU have to research on your own. If Paul wins, he will be putting them out of business. Paul is doing the same thing Kennedy tried to; stop the wars, bring the troops home and get rid of the criminals in the “Federal” Reserve via Executive Order 11110, which gave the U.S. the ability to print its own money backed by silver; 5-months later, he was assassinated. Ron Paul is risking his life to save what is left of this country and you will never understand this by getting your information from deceitful buffoons like Dick Morris and Bill O’Reilly. Go on to YouTube and watch interviews with Ron Paul, search any issue you are interested in – even back to the early 80’s, he has been warning about the economic and foreign policy for decades. He gets it, and he is the only one that does. As for your previous comment about voting for something that is not Constitutional, the President takes an oath to preserve, uphold and defend the Constitution. I want a president that has a pristine voting record doing just that. This country was set up as a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy; you will not see the word democracy once in our founding documents. That means that the prerequisite for voting on ANY bill or ruling on any case is to ask yourself if it’s Constitutional, then democracy kicks in, but the Constitution is what limits democracy’s power to take away individual freedoms and our God-given rights. In a democracy, 51% of the people can tell the other 49% how to live, does that sound like freedom? The Constitution protects our individual freedoms, it is the supreme law of the land and the most important thing. The powers that be have been trying to globalize and take away the sovereignty of the U.S. and other countries and they are almost there. They are crashing our economy as their Ponzi scheme is up and they need to change over to another currency, possibly the Amero; where you will get pennies on your dollar. We are truly at a critical juncture Tex; it is of the utmost importance for people to get informed of the facts. Without freedom, nothing else matters. “Ron Paul’s not electable, he’s too old, his ideas are too radical. If that’s how people are going to think, then they are denying themselves the opportunity to experience liberty in their lifetime.” Best line in the video IMO.

      • tex2 says:

        Here’s something to think about. Let’s say Ron Paul, by some unknown miracle, such as all the other candidates somehow meeting their demise, is elected president. How is he going to get his ideas implemented? Congress has to agree and pass laws to make the changes. Ron doesn’t have the talent, like Reagan did, to go to the American population and sell his ideas. We’ll be left with an ineffectual presidency, ala Jimmy Carter and Barry Obama.

    • Nicky Nelson says:

      What he can do first and foremost is bring our soldiers home and he will. He does not need permission from the senate or the congress; as Commander in Chief he has that sole authority. That is a great start and stops the Industrial Military Complex in its tracks and stops the spending. This never-ending war on terror is a hoax to take away our civil liberties via the “Patriot” Act and TSA, etc. and furthers their global agenda. The IVAW iraqi Veterans Against the War states the following: “We send the poor and working people in this country to kill the poor and working people in other countries to make the rich richer.” We have killed a million Iraqi’s; over 80% of them are innocent civilians; woman and children! In return they want to kill us; we are invaders and killing their children, what would we do? It’s tragic and horrific what our government is doing around the world for control of oil, or in Libya’s case, control of the oil and to prevent Guddafi from making his own money out of gold (sound money) which could have changed our world’s reserve currency to gold in essence. Because we went off the gold-standard in 1971, our dollars are backed by nothing; they have no intrinsic value. IF the world’s reserve currency changes from dollars to gold/money, the U.S. and other countries holding a great deal of dollars, would have to turn their dollars into gold in order to buy oil. Huge problem for the U.S. due to the amount of gold we have per capita. A lot would happen in the middle, but in the end the U.S. could turn into a third-world country almost overnight. Africa, Russia, China and other countries that have the gold would take over. This is how serious our situation has become from NOT listening to Ron Paul for decades. Also, you must remember that Ron Paul is the champion of the Constitution and ALL laws that are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void – imagine if we had someone in power willing to enforce the supreme law of our land. As long as the “Federal” reserve, a private corporation, not a government agency, has the power to print money, we will never get out of this mess; it literally funds the globalist banksters and when they print more money, YOUR dollar is worth less and they are starting QE3 if they haven’t already.

      Ron Paul gets more donations than all other GOP candidates put together and more than Obama, that should tell you how they feel about Ron Paul and the war.

      Active Military Donations as of July 2011

      Ron Paul $36,739
      Romney $5,000
      Bachmann $2,550
      Gingrich $1,025
      Pawlenty $250
      Santorum $250

      And title aside, here is a video of the soldiers speaking about the reality of war and what we are doing over there. Please watch; the second soldier’s speech is amazing. We owe it to our soldiers to listen to what they have to say. Spread the word, the media refuses to report the truth. Our military families are suffering and are on the front lines fighting to educate people about Ron Paul. It really is a matter of life and death for so many people.

      • tex2 says:

        That’s a great idea, let’s leave tomorrow. We should leave and allow all the terrorist groups to regroup and have 9/11 events on a weekly basis on our soil?

        I don’t expect everyone to agree, military or non-military.

        The first speaker should go over to Afghanistan and earn the $100,000/year he talked about. He should also think about the role of a terrorist and an American soldier.

        People have always made money off of wars.

        The second speaker is an idiot. We’re not over there because of racism, we’re there so the terrorists don’t bring their destruction over here. Nobody said war is pleasant, but the alternative, pacifism, is even less pleasant.

        The donations you mentioned are not representative of overall donations from veterans. Nice try, though.

        The speaker talking about no Iraqis being involved with 9/11 is untrue, as Saddam had camps for terrorist training.

        There are also civilian deaths in any war. The nature of terrorism is they blend into the population, making it even more likely.

    Well said Mathew! Great post Chris – thanks!

  13. NLanigan says:

    I was banned from posting on public “Pages” on Facebook for 52 days after posting comments with links for info on Ron Paul. I now belong to a group of people that were banned for 15 days for posting political or “activist” comments on pages-99% of them being Ron Paul supporters. This whole story they have about a “glitch” in their servers that is “overzealous” about catching “irrelevant and spammy” posts is ridiculous. Being in IT, I can say that with full clarity. Kinda makes one understand why some jump on the conspiracy theories…but I digress. I am tired of the news media and their guerrila tactics on my mind amd reasoning. And shame on Fox News for their blatant hypocrisy!!

  14. Doc Strange says:

    @tex2… As a Ron Paul supporter and some one who honors freedom I ask you why you believe he is nuts?
    the fact that he predicted the economic collapse in 2003?

    the fact that he wants to end the pointless wars… do you like the fact we are killing thousands of innocent ppl all over the world?

    the fact he wants the Office of the president to abide by the laws of our nation.. or do you enjoy the president being told what to do by the UN and Nato? are you a Texan or another import from Europe wanting to see fundamental change in our republic?

    the fact he wants to seal our borders and stop the illegal flow of Mexicans into our country. do you enjoy the fact that your grand-childern are being dumb down so that the foreign speaking children wont be left behind.

    Here is a Powerful fact that is coming to life as Obama continues to ruin our Country
    please use your powerful pea sized brain to think big picture…

    A Ron Paul presidency doesn’t terrify many Democrats like a Romney, Perry, or Bachmann presidency does. This is important, since Democrats now a days are far more likely to come out to vote against the Fox news GOP nominee than to vote for Obama.
    However… this is where it gets tricky for you…Should Paul win the nomination, then one of his greatest strengths is that he won’t scare off disaffected Democrats.

    also in regards to your statement he cant win… all the man does is win… no matter what.

    CPAC Straw Poll; Ron Paul won with 31%, Romney was second with 22%, Palin third at 7%, then Pawlenty at 6%, Mike Pence (congressman from Indiana) 5%, Huckabee 4%.

    Ron Paul just won his House seat primary by a whopping 70%. He won 81% to 11%. Ron Paul will grab more headlines when he wins the general election in November.

    Please Tex2 please try I know the TV box is telling you something different you might have to go oout on a limb and come up with your own opion if your still capable… A lot of old people it is to late for but I have faith in you, please hear the inner-voice screaming for you to wake up and do your own research and form your own thoughts.
    I will Pray for you tonight Tex2 and know you can turn it around God Bless.

  15. Nicky Nelson says:

    That was as far as I would ever want to travel into the black hole of unoriginal ignorance you call a “thought” process. Good day Tex!

    I’m not going to answer every single Ron Paul nut-job point when you don’t respond to my points. If you want to talk, you can arrange a conference call (no extra charge beyond your normal long distance charge to southern California, where the number is located) and dial *67 first if you want to maintain your number confidential: (616)597-8000 Access Code 975016#

    I live in the Central time zone, so be sure to take that into account, unless you’re like Ron Paul, too scared to talk!!! LOL

      Ron Paul on Patriotism – http://www.lewrockwell.com/paul/paul388.html This message is approved by our Founding Fathers

      • tex2 says:

        Ron said,

        “There is no evidence that a truce will soon be signed in Iraq….” – but we don’t need a truce, we have trained the Iraqis in government and military affairs and are now withdrawing.

        A national ID card is now in the process of being implemented.” – Really? I don’t have one. Did Ron stop that one all by himself? LOL

        This message is approved by someone who has a clue, like our Founding Fathers did.

    And here’s a response to your “well written article”

    http://www.tomwoods.com/

  19. Nicky Nelson says:

    It’s really not that complicated Tex – Dr. Ron Paul is a strict Constitutionalist IMO and so am I as a patriotic American. I’ve wasted far too much time on you. But I will leave you with this: What have you done today to restore or preserve the Republic? If you think watching Feux news and spreading their propaganda is helping, than that is your opinion and contribution.

    “Let it not be said we did nothing!” – Ron Paul

    • tex2 says:

      No, you’re a misled Paulite.

      I’ll tell you what I’ve done to preserve the Republic, I’ve exposed another Paul follower and their fallacies, worn them down, and demonstrated they are too chicken to talk on the phone, just like Ron is too scared to talk to Bill O’Reilly, because Bill won’t allow guests to skirt the questions.

      Let it be said Ron Paul is a footnote in the book of America, so he’s just above nothing. LOL – Tex

  20. nlanigan says:

    “A national ID card is now in the process of being implemented.” – Really? I don’t have one. Did Ron stop that one all by himself? LOL”-tex2

    Well tex, I don’t see what you proved @ all. Why should Nicky call you to have a private convo when she is perfectly willing to do so in public? Are you some kind of perv or are you just waking up to the fact that you sound like a Socialist cheerleader? Seems to me you are the one who needs to keep your sheltered and naive views quiet-so who’s the coward? You sir, have very circular thinking, and you place things out of context.

    Pay attention to the key words “in the process of”…and yes it has been in the process for some time. Try doing some research, instead of being a hypocrite who has the audacity to call others “blahblahbots”. You sound like a friggin droid.

    • tex2 says:

      Simple, I proved Ron was wrong in 2 of his statements, and I could probably find more if I looked harder.

      I could cover a LOT more ground on the phone, Nicky wouldn’t last long on the phone if she didn’t respond to my points. We would either make progress or it would be over, no endless typing and watching her and others ignore my points while they move on to their Ron Paul talking points. Why does making a phone call turn someone into a perv? Where have you seen a single socialist concept from me on these threads? Obviously, Nicky and YOU are the cowards, you could accept the call as well, and I would be willing to take ALL of you on at the same time, with half my brain tied behind my back, just to make it fair.

      We’re all in the “process” of dying also, as the average lifespan is about 80 years. Should we just ship our nuclear warheads to Iran so they can just get it over with? Why don’t you give me a single credible link to the national ID issue?

  21. Nicky Nelson says:

    Good morning Tex –

    It’s movie time this weekend! And I’ll find more info on the National ID card regarding Ron Paul as you requested, but there is info in this movie on the subject as well. Get your popcorn ready for: “America: Freedom to Fascism is a 2006 film by Aaron Russo, which alleges among a variety of claims that income tax is illegal. The documentary covers many subjects, including: the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the income tax, Federal Reserve System, national ID cards (REAL ID Act), human-implanted RFID tags (Spychips), Diebold electronic voting machines, globalization, Big Brother, taser weapons abuse, and the alleged use of terrorism by government as a means to diminish the citizens’ rights.

    The Film Determined to find the law that requires American citizens to pay income tax, producer Aaron Russo set out on a journey to find the evidence. This film which is neither left, nor right-wing is a startling examination of government. It exposes the systematic erosion of civil liberties in America since 1913 when the Federal Reserve system was fraudulently created.” http://youtu.be/lUpZhhbKUBo

  22. tex2 says:

    I saw a few minutes. You’re not help Ron Paul get elected. While I agree with many of the points brought up, how to address them is all that matters, and Russo/Paul won’t get very far, which is another reason why Ron won’t be elected president. But thanks for again demonstrating and permanently displaying what nut-jobs the Paul followers are!

  23. Nicky Nelson says:

    Additional info on the National ID Card: http://youtu.be/n9CZ5OUet3s and a graduate level education if you are up for it: http://youtu.be/eAaQNACwaLw Just search YouTube for any issue and Ron Paul. To know him is to love him and understand the importance of his leadership in the freedom movement.

  24. Nicky Nelson says:

    Tex, if we are to have any further discussions/debates on any type of meaningful intellectual level, you are going to need to catch up. Arron Russo was threatened in Yiddish in this film you would not take the time to watch and is now dead. May he rest in peace – we carry his message of truth, freedom and courage to question and seek and spread truth.

  25. tex2 says:

    Me catch up? You didn’t even know who Neville Chamberlain was and how he was largely responsible for Hitler taking over most of Europe, or of Bill Clinton’s attempt to appease North Korea, which got us nowhere. Then you can’t even spell his first name right, and accuse ME of needing to catch up?

    What’s his expertise? He was a Rock and Roll band producer? LOL

    I’m not inclined to watch a nearly 2 hour video about someone nobody ever heard of and who showed what a nut they are within seconds of speaking. According to this source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aaron_Russo Aaron died after a 6 year battle with bladder cancer, probably caused by listening to Ron Paul for hours on end rather than taking a pee break!

    But thanks for continuing to show the world what a whacked out nut job you are, it explains again why Ron Paul is unelectable. LOL

  26. Nicky Nelson says:

    Me catch up? “You didn’t even know who Neville Chamberlain was and how he was largely responsible for Hitler taking over most of Europe, or of Bill Clinton’s attempt to appease North Korea, which got us nowhere.” Then you can’t even spell his first name right, and accuse ME of needing to catch up? I don’t know what you are talking about, you must be confusing me with another poor freedom fighter you are dealing with. Sorry for the typo, I didn’t mean to give away what a nut job I was.

  27. tex2 says:

    Yes, all of you Paulites are so similar I get them mixed up sometimes. LOL

    Hey Jared! Good luck fellow freedom fighter, this one is stuck on stupid. LOL

  32. tex2 says:

    That’s right, Jared is the ignorant one, but you’re giving him a run for his money! By the way, unless you get your spelling from Colbert, it’s P-e-r-r-y. Learn it, he could very well be the next president of the United States. I’m sure he’ll assign Ron as Secretary of Appeasement. LOL

    Oh no, BOTH of you are stuck on stupid. LOL

  33. Jared Thrasher says:

    Yes Tex we are both stuck on having to deal with you. I suppose that makes you stupid. Way to tell the truth Tex! :-)

  34. tex2 says:

    You’re not stuck on having to deal with me. All you have to do is stop digging your hole deeper by stop posting. Or prove you really are stupid and keep digging/posting. I’m sure that’s what Ron Paul would like you to do! LOL

    • Nicky Nelson says:

      Who won the Iowa GOP Debate? According to Fox’s poll, the one they refused to report to the public, Dr. Ron Paul!

      Then Bachmann beats him the next day in the straw poll, yeah right, look at the numbers below and tell me that makes any sense whatsoever. Bachmann won by giving out 6000 “free” Randy Travis tickets, but ONLY after people registered at her table and voted first. Remember, she only won with 4800 or so votes. Get a clue Tex, Ron Paul is going to be the next president and your refusal to see truth and use your own brain doesn’t change that fact.

      National Vote
      Paul 27557

        You need to engage your brain. How was that poll conducted? By a random survey, or Paulites flooding the online poll to pump up Ron? If that poll was accurate, Ron Paul would be leading many other polls, not just that one. LOL

        Straw polls are notoriously slanted towards the candidates who are literally able/willing to buy votes, and therefore virtually meaningless. I’ve saw Ron Paul’s tactics first hand at a local Republican meeting in 2007. A guy joined our group to come up with platform input and he had a very long laundry list of Paul positions, and if we had let him deliver his entire list, we would probably STILL be there listening to him drone on and on, just like Ron Paul himself does! LOL

    • Nicky Nelson says:

      And here is a video explaining why your brain is not working correctly and accepting facts and truth. Pay attention Tex, this is important and should be haunting considering where this country is on this K GB agents scale. WAKE UP, WAKE UP, we’re going over a cliff! http://youtu.be/zeMZGGQ0ERk Then look up operation Mockingbird regarding the C 1 a putting in their agents as reporters and taking control of the media; this was back in the 70’s, so how far do you think they have gotten? Then you can look up Anderson Cooper, who trained at their facility in Langley, VA and who’s mother is blue blood Gloria Vanderbilt. Grow up Tex and see the truth and world for what it is. It’s people like you that are more responsible for the mess this country is in than the representatives you ignorantly put into office.

      Okay, let me come clean. Nicky Nelson is a plant, in the form of an alter ego to me, who looks as stupid and nutty as possible as a campaign against the Ron Paul for president campaign. LOL

  36. nlanigan says:

    Has anyone else besides myself noticed that tex always reverts to name-calling and has yet to add any proof or substance to this thread? He calls Nicky names @ every turn and has yet to bring fact in to back up his claims.

    I am curious as to why it is “fringe”, “nutty”, “stupid” or any other derogatory term he has used, to wish for freedom. This person has literally made me ashamed that I ever called myself a liberal. Each time I come into some public political forum, I see this same behavior. Bullying and name-calling are the norm for anyone that does not agree with their socialist mindset, to all-out censorship.

    Tex has shown a lack of class and logic in this thread, and has done nothing but spread falsehoods. I challenge him to grow the heck up and act like an adult instead of hurling his immaturity and skewed sense of logic and maybe learn to think for himself.

    • Jared Thrasher says:

      I have noticed, and experienced it for myself. Just look up his responses on many of the older posts. I suppose this is the way he wishes to leave his mark on the world in his retirement. What a waste.

        Yes, it is a waste Jared, however, there are many more courageous freedom fighters and our numbers are growing exponentially. Keep fighting the good fight – we will prevail!

        nlanigan,

        I don’t call anybody names. I accurately label them consistent with their demonstrated behavior, so that they and others reading my posts will know who they are. For instance, you’re stupid, because I’ve referenced plenty of links and historical examples to back up my points.

        It’s not fringe, nutty, stupid, or any other term to wish for freedom. It is all of the above to wish for almost unlimited unbridled, Ron Paul style libertarian “freedom” without thinking through the consequences. Freedom comes with responsibilities, and Ron ignores those responsibilities. By the way, I’ve already stated I’m a Ronald Reagan/Rush Limbaugh conservative, so I have a question for you: have you ever considered reading for comprehension? LOL

        nlanigan has shown a lack of class and logic in this thread, and has done nothing but spread falsehoods. I challenge him (her?) to grow the heck up and act like an adult instead of hurling his (her?) immaturity and skewed sense of logic and maybe learn to think for himself (herself?). LOL

    No, vex….we don’t. Exactly, you “label” them…so turn about is fair play. Rush Limbaugh is an egotistical drug addict who wouldn’t know his butt from a hole in the ground, so I wouldn’t expect anything less from you, who appears to be just the same. No, you and your ilk don’t want Dr. Paul in office because it would significantly lower those war profits, now wouldn’t they? Ms. Nelson has shown great savvy in all of the proof that she has provided, while you yourself just chomp at the bit with your insult hurling. And let me make this crystal clear for you, bub…I am all woman, but there will never come a day when you can grow a pair anywhere near what I have, lil man. Don’t start none, won’t be none. You have YET AGAIN shown a severe lack of not only class, but you are quite possibly one of the most ignorant and sycophantic imbeciles I have ever come across.

      Nice one pee pee pants. The image I have of you patriotically enjoying your groping by the TSA, or huddled on your couch with the idiot box blaring and calling ladies names from behind your computer is a pathetic one. Do you call yourself a man? An American? A Patriot? Courageous? A gentleman? Your utter lack of respect for people, women, human death and suffering, injustice, truth and freedom is an outrage. It’s woman like us that have the balls to stand up for what is right and who are actually willing to fight for it; literally.

    “This second document is obsequious drivel which reveals Scott (Pee Pee Pants Tex) Johnson to be a self-deluding, child-like character living out an egocentric fantasy of his own importance which currently renders him completely incapable of facing up to the ugly reality that he is just one of many millions whose existing beliefs and instinctual desires have been identified, manipulated and exploited by some the most devious and greedy cultic racketeers in history.

    Well that about sums it up David!

    Big boy pants?! LMAO – Wait, I found a pair http://www.flickr.com/photos/37669952@N06/5327981126/in/photostream Once you put these on, perhaps you can take a look at “…whose existing beliefs and instinctual desires have been identified, manipulated and exploited by some (of) the most devious and greedy cultic racketeers in history.” That should ring a bell, it describes to a T our current government and media. Do you really want to be duped again Pee?

    Gee Doug, bet you never pictured this kind of exchange when you started your blog eh?

    • tex2 says:

      Joey,

      What’s your take on Ron Paul being shunned by the press?

    • Nicky Nelson says:

      Yes, sorry Doug – it went so far south, it just became comical. lol

      • tex2 says:

        Yes, sorry Doug – these are the people you’re working with to get Ron Paul elected to president of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world. LOL

      • Jared Thrasher says:

        Snott E. Johnson-nommer that very statement just exposes your lust for American Empire and your desire for us to be ruled by an all powerful king.

      • tex2 says:

        Jared,

        At least I didn’t knock up my buddy’s wife, like YOU did. You never answered the question whether you married her, either. We’ll just assume that means “no.” LOL

        Let the record show I also tried to get the thread back to the original topic, and it was the Paulites who took it off course – AGAIN! LOL

    • tex2 says:

      You are going to defer to a political comedian for the answer? Please, don’t vote.

  45. Jared Thrasher says:

    Where did I ever say that he was my buddy? He was an aquaintance, yes. His repeated acts of violence led to a divorce and him abandoning his 1 year old son who is now 9 and has yet to see his biological father since then. You also never asked me if I married her, but since you are asking now I will answer. And as you presumed, the answer is No, she refuses to marry me because her trust and faith in marriage has been destroyed by the consequeses of the senslessness in fighting in undeclared, unconstitutional War. Maybe someday she will marry me, when she can somehow restore her faith in humanity. I do my best everyday to try and restore it.
    Sorry for calling you a Johnson-nommer, I dint mean to let myself slip to your level. You are a very skilled Troll.

  46. tex2 says:

    You’re right, you didn’t say he was your buddy, my bad. However, you did say, “I chose another path Tex. My path was to step up and become the Man of that destroyed family…When that ex-wife of the tortured soldier became pregnant with my daughter 2 years later….” What a “Man!” LOL

    Why would you want a son to see someone who has “repeated acts of violence” against his family? Is it because he should have complete FREEDOM to visit his biological son, regardless of consequences, just like Ron Paul would say.

    Regarding not marrying her and blaming it on a war, what a crock of crap.

    Here’s some free advice. When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging!!! LOL

  47. Jared Thrasher says:

    I stepped up immeadiately after the divorce, not 2 years later as you have implied.

    The conception of my daughter was 2 years later.

    You also presumed that i want him to see his father. The divorce stipulated he has rights to supervised visits, but he has yet to exorcise those rights.

    His son has gone through a lot of difficulty knowing I am not his real father, He calls me Dad and I call him Son never the less.

    As I have stated – she refuses to marry me. I’m not going to force her marry me because I think its the right thing to do. The vows have to be mutual or it just wont work. As I see it she will marry when she is ready to try marriage again.

    Scott, please stop presuming all sorts of bad things about me.

    Have you an ounce of humanity in you?

    • tex2 says:

      I didn’t imply anything, I quoted YOU. But good job, you “stepped up” right away, while she was most vulnerable.

      Then you have the gall to call her your “daughter,” even though you haven’t married the woman? I call that a litter, not a daughter. Just like a dog, procreating without responsibility.

      I never stated you wanted the abusive dad to see his son, you read something that simply wasn’t there, as usual. It is called a rhetorical question. Look it up.

      The word is “exercise,” not “exorcise.” Although it sounds like at least one exorcism needs to be performed, I suggest you go first.

      A lot of sons call the man who fathered their half-sister dad, and Ron would probably like to see more “free love” so we can all have more “FREEDOM!!!” To hell with real fathers, real men, real husbands. Let’s do whatever maximizes our own freedom, to hell with the consequences. Have you ever heard most known civilizations in recorded history have failed because of internal lack of morals? Thanks for taking us further down that road….NOT!

      She refuses to marry you? Why am I not surprised? After all, it appears you were made for each other. LOL

      Jared, I haven’t “presumed” anything, you’re the one who keeps taking this off-topic, not me. YOU are the one who has frothed up all the other lame posters on this site, but that’s good, because then others would think only one nut likes Ron Paul, not it’s obvious there’s a whole can of mixed (up) nuts supporting Ron Paul. LOL

      I have lots of humanity, much more than one ounce. However, I also don’t back down to idiots on blogs. Too bad for you. Live with it, Jared.

  48. Nicky Nelson says:

    Jared, I would rethink letting this troll into your personal life and psyche; he is a tricky one and not to be trusted.

    • tex2 says:

      Nicky,

      You’re a bit late with that advice, just like Ron Paul was late in line when they were handing out brains. LOL

      I’m not tricky, I’m truthful. In today’s deceptive world, I can understand why you think I’m a “tricky” one. LOL

      Stupid bitch. LOL

  49. Jared Thrasher says:

    I know, I regret having posted a single thing in the first place now. My passion for the campaign overcame me and then one thing led to another and this is what you get. I try to shy away from internet posting for these very reasons. I fell for the bait.

  50. Nicky Nelson says:

    Oh Jared, you’re just fine :) You’re a sweetheart with good intentions. Stay away from these type people with borderline personality disorders, The thread shows who is who. Lesson learned, unlike Pee Pee Pants that continues to make the same mistakes over and over.

    It is important to spread truth and fight for freedom. You’re doing a great job! NEXT!

    • tex2 says:

      Yeah Jared. As they say, “The road to heaven is paved with good intentions.” Except for one teensy tiny word being off. See if you can guess! LOL Since you and the others are Paulites, I’ll give you a “clue:” substitute “hell” for “heaven.” LOL

      I agree with Nicky, stay away from Ron Paul. LOL

      This thread DOES show who is who. LOL

      And Nicky STILL hasn’t learned the lesson, but then again, she doesn’t realize she has taken the bait and is hooked, either. LOL

      Keep spreading Ron Paul’s version of the truth. Duck any questions or interviewers you are scared of, especially the ones who force you to answer their questions, like Bill O’Reilly. It’s been several days, I still haven’t heard when Ron will talk with Bill, he must have some busy schedule! LOL

      Dr. Seuss and Dr. Paul, quite a pair! LOL

      Don’t let a scummy bitch ruin your day, either! LOL NEXT!

  51. nlanigan says:

    I see vex is up to his juvenile shenanigans. Vex, get on topic and quit your moronic douchebaggery and start actually debating or toodle on off. You are no different than that useless piece of skin on the end of a penis wrinkle. Jared, never let anyone run you off from standing by your beliefs-just try not to post personal particulars about yourself. It should not matter to you what some sex-starved wannabe thinks or posts about you. At the end of the day, he’s still as ignorant and all you show for it is a migraine. You see what he makes? Now you KNOW he is still pounding his pud in his mama’s basement to Goatse, while he collects welfare. He’s the only bitch I see inn this thread, and I wipe my butt with his kind daily. NEXT.

  52. Jared Thrasher says:

    Yeah, learned an important lesson here. Thought if I was honest and open about why Dr. Paul had my support I could at least a respectful understanding. Instead he just reveals what a psychopath he is.

    • tex2 says:

      You don’t base your life philosophy over a single fucked up soldier, then go get his wife pregnant and don’t even have the decency to marry her! If you didn’t think she would marry you, you shouldn’t have fucked her. You’re so fucked up in so many ways. Get a CLUE!!!

  53. nlanigan says:

    I suggest we ignore him, as none of this is constructive, and really quite immature.
