I think he is just gonna ask whatever comes to mind. Glenn doesnt seem to really care too much for what is PC. I am sure though he will probably try and stick it to ron paul pretty good but from what i have seen I think ron will be able to handle it.
I have seen some people around dallas with shoe polish on there cars supporting ron paul.
just my 2 cents but i listen to talk radio all the freaking day (and not just ats mix or c2c) and it does seem that recently ron paul has made some news not just on the national talk shows but the local news breaks they do during commercial breaks (on monday each one mentioned ron's recent fund raising)......
this will be a 'interesting' election
i wonder how many write in votes Ru Paul is gonna get

Can't you see she's ill?
Can't you see that she's simply eating this up?
Every response flames her joy and ego.
Only one with an insane mind attempts to reason with another insane mind!!!
Leave her alone!!!

The Constitution says nothing about being White, Black, Hispanic, Male, Female, etc.
The 13th and 14th amendment also protect minority cultures against such "Civil Rights Act Removal" which is going to make such a big deal about minority races. The 13th and 14th Amendment are not reversible. If Ron Paul wants to go back to the original Constitution, he has to keep the Amendments because they were decided by all 50 states.
Read the Constitution and Amendments, come back when you have some knowledgeable information that isn't clear idiocy.

Ron Paul is obviously going nowhere because his platform is absurd.
What I find totally amusing is his popularity is consistenly in the low single digits. But most of his supporters attribute this to rigging by the MSN and claim the entire voting process is rigged. Yet they send in all this money to support the whole process.
Who are the sheeple ?

I've read about 9 pages thus far. Man, you guys are good. Hats off to CaptainPlanet and Aravoth. Great stuff and I feel educated after reading your posts!!!
I could come up with several conclusions about our visitor from the south, but I shall refrain from making public comments on this.
Let me just say that while I vehemetly disagree with all of her positions, I wholeheartedly encourage the dialogue, although a seperate thread might be in order. Even though this thread was started from a loyalist's point of view regarding MSM censorship, it is proving to be a excellent primer in making the case on why Ron Paul should be the next President and why socialism is so very, very wrong. For every opinion that she espouses and presents as fact or reality in her mind, knowledgeable forum members refure this with ACTUAL facts and truth that back up Ron Paul's beliefs. And you'll find no trace of flip-flopping in his positions.
Go Ron Paul!!!!
I just read some more. I'll tell you one thing this thread has done for me is made me feel PROUD to be a supporter of Ron Paul. In fact, this thread has got me jazzed. SB is the embodiment of the establishment's way of thinking. She symbolizes all that Ron Paul is against. What better way to make the case for Ron Paul than to meet this challenge head on and refute every misconcpetion, lie, half-truth and distortion that the establishment tries to present against the good doctor.
I agree that a seperate thread should be established to discuss this.

Some of my favorite pastimes are watching folks like Southernbelle try and persuade you to think Ron Paul is anything but honest and a true citizen statesman.
But thats why supporting Ron is so much fun and is so easy, as one can so easily refute each and every slanderous attack against Dr. Paul with truth and facts.
Sure their next tactic is if you cant slander the candidate go after his supporters. This in itself is tragically flawed as it only shows the true nature of the slanderer. Once cant use this tactic as it is NOT the theory of being judged by the company you keep as supporters cant be turned away....your stuck with them.
Just to prove to yourself that Ron is the number 1 candidate all you have to do is look at the meet up group maps...the bes next to Ron is Obama I think with several thousand supporters. Obamas map looks have quite a few of the red dots.
But look at Ron Paul's after you look at the other candidates and you cant even see the map of the united states as it is one giant blob of red dots...lol

First of all I dont think anyone is wasting their money on an illusion, people are donating their money to something they believe in regardless of what the MSM says. I was looking at our newspapers and news sites yesterday, I had to search for anything regarding Ron Paul's 6 million in donations in one day. IMO I would think that would be big news, but instead it was the same old pop tart and fear that graces the pages everyday. I think the media is absolutley burrying Ron Pauls support, and although not fair it makes me happy. As another person stated the more you bash him, the more you outcast his supporters the bigger he is going to get. Maybe that is the plan, maybe he is part of some conspiracy we cant see, but in my opinion I dont think that is the case. I would rather take my chances on someone that has kept the same stances all along. Keep attempting to smear him by association, and people that think for themselves are going to see right through that. This most recent money bomb shows that people are fed up, if Dr. Paul doesnt get elected the fact still remains, people are waking up and we arent letting this country go any further down the crapper. To you elites behind the scenes, your days are numbered, your smearing of ron paul shows your fear, and scared you should be the power is going back to the people.
THis was a great thread that was taken way off course, there is alot of discussion to make up for now, I just hope people still have energy left after defending against a deranged socialist.

Skip the straw polls.. Look around you. Look at the money he raised from the "people" and not huge donors.
Look at the support he garners in a way that people make their OWN banners from paint, stencils, purchasing banners.
With the way politics has been accurately portrayed as a backstabbing, power hungry and just down right nasty place to generally be a part of, Ron Paul is the only person I have ever seen garner the grass roots support as I see now. Whether you want to believe it or not, he is the HONEST choice.
How in the heck can you choose otherwise?
To me, if you vote for anyone else then you are supporting the same ole machinery that is already defunct and will leave us stranded and broken down..
I've looked at all candidates and what they stand for and their history. RP is the real deal. Meaning whether or not you believe in everything he represents, you should agree with the core of his personality, the honesty, the integrity and resolve to do what is right for the population and not government.
the OP is right, he's been shunned by MSM and I hope lik ehell that the average man can prove to beat the machine by gathering together for the first time in many years to vote the man who is right into office.

Belle, dear, how can RP climb in polls when he isn't allowed to be on the poll in the first place? I know that your a wee bit heated against the man, but I'm sure you can see that it makes his followers feel a trifle heated themselves when he is left out of the national polls, and then someone comes along and says he has no chance because he isn't high enough in the polls.
And by the way, are you my dear old Aunt Kathy? You'll know me because I'm the only family member you can't out shout.
