Will they let Ron Paul win? The press is ignoring him but time after time Ron Paul wins with the voters.

Ron Paul has almost reached his 12m Mark and has to the end of December to get there.

Take a listen to him he could really be a Real President who will do real things to improve our nation.



Ron Paul vanquished the competition in the annual Virginia GOP retreat straw poll by collecting 182 votes (38%). Despite having former senator George Allen and current Virginia Attorney General Bob McDonald speaking on his behalf, Fred Thompson managed only 112 votes (23%). While Mike Huckabee, who was represented by his wife, finished a distant third with 51 votes (11%).

I could have guessed. And I can probably bet right who will win the next poll.

All of what I have heard of him and what he has said I like, but we shall see.

On a side note, the CNN/Youtube debates were somewhat entertaining.

Yes I saw the debate and he did pretty good when he had a chance to talk. I think if people took 10 min to read the issues part of his website that they would want him as our next president. He pulls no punches and he addresses each issue of our time in a way that most Americans seem to think.

If he is for real he could make America great again.

Click on the issues tab and read what he says about each issue. They are short and to the point and seem to reflect the views of most of the people I work with, my family and friends. I used to want Hillary, (for change) but this guy is dead right on every issue with my thinking. I bet many of you will feel the same if you read it. Its pretty short. Click the issues tab and take a look

Then, after the debate, Rudy Giuliani walked up to me and said, "Oooh, you sure have a LOT of supporters." It’s only the beginning, I told him.





Indeed, he could have told that by the crowd outside after the debate. Mitt Romney had a few people, but no one else did. We, on the other hand, had about 500 enthusiastic revolutionaries, plus a boat, a trolley, and two planes towing lighted signs. As I looked out at the crowd, I thought: the establishment has no idea of what they are facing. We have an army of freedom, prosperity, and peace. As the LA Times political blog noted the other day, the British also thought they had no problem with the Americans--until Yorktown.


How is he getting so many supporters? I hope if Paul stays on track and so do his supporters, he has a good chance. But I can honestly see at least someone from the IRS, various Government, etc, assassinating him. So it makes me wonder what he has planned. What he has planned to do with all these supporters and all the power he has acquired.

Take a quick read at ROn's most recent message to supporters. Can anyone really deny that this is a true American and the only REAL candidate? Please debate his message and his issues here if you will. Am I blind in supporting Ron? I haver never been so fired up for a candidate as I am now.



Take a read:

This message from Ron Paul Website

Want to know a secret? There were two moments I especially enjoyed at the CNN/YouTube debate -- despite my frustration at some of the questions, and the maldistribution of time.

First, I was pleased at John McCain's attack, which he clearly had planned. Not because that sort of stream-of-consciousness nonsense about Hitler and WWII -- when the neocons openly want what they call WW IV! Are we to forget that the first war crime charged at Nuremberg was waging aggressive war?

I mean this: mainstream politicians NEVER attack an opponent they think is far behind. The McCain campaign, we've heard, is worried sick about New Hampshire, and they thought a slam at me would help. Ha! Of course, it only strengthened our forces.

Then, after the debate, Rudy Giuliani walked up to me and said, "Oooh, you sure have a LOT of supporters." It’s only the beginning, I told him.

Indeed, he could have told that by the crowd outside after the debate. Mitt Romney had a few people, but no one else did. We, on the other hand, had about 500 enthusiastic revolutionaries, plus a boat, a trolley, and two planes towing lighted signs. As I looked out at the crowd, I thought: the establishment has no idea of what they are facing. We have an army of freedom, prosperity, and peace. As the LA Times political blog noted the other day, the British also thought they had no problem with the Americans--until Yorktown.

But we have an astoundingly short time before the first contests. The Iowa caucuses are on January 3, the New Hampshire primary is on January 8, and Nevada and South Carolina are both on January 19. We have only 30 days to stake our claim to the nomination, and to the new America that restores the ideals of the founders, and leads the world through free enterprise, a sound dollar, the rule of law, and peaceful example. Not through inflation and bombs.

Help me surprise the neocons and all the establishment with our success. Help me build the foundation for the America we all want. Send your most generous contribution:
