Sad how "enlightened voters" think that they're awake when they're really just programmed to believe they are (and to pull the appropriate lever).

All gets old, listening to the same broken record as to how the liberal/conservative media is manipulating things and that if people only run to the other side of the trap, er a, boat that all would be corrected.

Fucking tools!

I really like Ron Paul (supported him in the past, and do so in spirit today [my new-found religion doesn't permit me to engage in politics]), but he's NOT PTB material, he's therefore not going to "save" us all: yup, we're doomed to rinse and repeat up until we get it that it's the fucking System! (that's where power is, and where power will control us all until we get it through our thick skulls that power doesn't compromise, that our only options are to either become that power we hate, or we disallow the formation of power outright [NO GOVT]).

As a constituient and supporter of Dr. Ron Paul, I strongly believe in his message.  I appreciate the viewpoint that he is not our "savior".  I am not ignorant enough to believe that one person could be elected and change the way the big boys/ control freaks run the corrupt government. 

 The biggest strength Dr. Paul gives us is his truthfulness and consistency of his message and beliefs.  When folks wake up and start listening to truth and common sense and realize we are being strangled by federal gov/corporate cabal- and work to end the corrupt system- then that is when Dr. Paul has WON!!!!

Speak for yourself. I turned off CNBS about 6 years ago--makes me puke. I never watch it--it screws up my trading. I just watch my charts and streaming quotes, and read ZH (#1), Briefing.com, Bloomberg, Investors Village, Google Finance and I do read the WSJ.

The only way I would watch CNBS is if it was the 'Rick Santelli channel', and he was the only commentator.

The useless corporate media ignores Ron Paul yet reports every word that comes out of the mouth of the completely irrelevant Michelle Bachman.

I'm fucking crazy.

But Cain, Perry, and Bachman have completely shit the bed.

Furthermore, most Americans aren't going to vote for a Morman.  They'd rather have a black man.

So Paul and Gingrich REALLY have a shot.

One's a sincere genius.  The other is an evil genius.

Either way, they're both better than Obama.

Things are looking up.

Romney can't get above 25% in the polls.  That's because he is a RINO.  Republican in Name Only.

And who owns the code to these things???

Anywho... I had some involvement in nixing these things in my State.  Funny that the campaign to protect this obvious point of manipulation came by way of getting people to believe that a "paper trail" could protect voters.  You could program a machine to report a different vote but you couldn't have it alter a printout?  People just aren't very smart: and I'm talking about hardcore political folks (yeah, now I know better- I detest them in all their shapes and sizes).

Ah, the good old days in which I actually thought that the System was fixable (didn't realize that it operated just as always intended).

Yesterday, after I voted in the poll and the result was displayed, RP was first at 33% followed by Romney at 22%.

CNBC however had a serious issue with the visual presentation. The bars indicating % for both candidates were exactly of the same length while every other candidate's % bar length was proportional to Romney's. Example:

R. Paul   ------------------------------ 33%

Romney ------------------------------ 22%

Cain      ----------------------------   21%

@Unprepared - MSNBC did the exact same thing!  Paul with 29.7% has a line equal in length to Caint and Romney at 22%.  The rest are all proportional.  What gives?


Ron Paul   29.7% (11,686 votes) Herman Cain   22% (8,642 votes) Mitt Romney   21.8% (8,576 votes) Newt Gingrich   15.2% (5,963 votes) Jon Huntsman   5.4% (2,132 votes) Rick Perry   2.8% (1,119 votes) Michele Bachmann   1.7% (651 votes) Rick Santorum

The MSM are definatley scared of Ron Paul.

But so is the GOP-if the GOP wasn't scared of him, the rest of the talking buffons on stage would not constantly be co-opting his ideas.

You can even see Romney watching Ron Paul closely when Ron Paul actually gets to answer a question. Then Romney will later rephrase Ron Paul's response as if it was his own idea.

The GOP knows that Ron Paul's platform is what the people want, but the GOP also knows they can't control him.

Sorry for that typo, but my first post shows how big and broad support even here at ZH Paul really has! All other GOP candidates should take that under consideration.
