That's some pretty bad stuff about the polls being skewed like that. I was almost completely sold on Ron Paul until that. This thread has been fun
and informing to read and I must say that those of you that were saying that SB was ruining the thread couldn't be more incorrect. That stuff is
entertaining to read and besides, it gave everyone else reason to post a lot of quotes and replies to shoot down her opinions.
As for Ron Paul, I am conflicted. I have never voted in my life because it seems all we have to choose from are several piles of excrement from a
couple different animals and I felt like I was contributing to the problem if I were to vote for any of them just because I had the right to.
I had first seen Ron Paul when he made an appearance on G4's "Attack of the Show". For those of you who don't know what that is, it is a network
that appeals to the younger generation who play video games and are into the latest gadgets such as cell phones and MP3 players; stuff like that. He
did a five minute interview on there and I thought he sounded really good. In those five minutes, I could tell that he was different from the usual
presidential candidate and just that he was making an effort to reach the younger generation was something that impressed me in itself.
On the flip-side, I have always been of the opinion that in order to be president, you have got to be corrupted or prone to corruption once that
person is in office. There have been some people here who have implied this and it's true really. All candidates have come from exactly the same mold
until Ron Paul came along and ruined all that. Hehe. I was reading through this thread to kinda educate myself further and to just listen to people go
on about it and watch the fight and just generally be entertained.
I was 99% sold until I read the last post in this forum about members from ronpaul.com going around and blowing up internet polls so that he wins and
that is pretty serious. So how many of those internet polls that he ran away with were accurate? Is Ron Paul affiliated with this site at all? I want
so badly to completely buy into him but if history has taught us anything about this kind of thing, it's that most of the time things are not what
they seem and it wouldn't take much to discourage me at this point. This poll skewing thing is a huge strike against him and any internet poll
results that he has won, but it doesn't explain the money he got. Could it be that a corporation is helping him and is being suppressed hidden behind
it being real people donating money? The poll skewing stuff opens up entirely new possibilities.
On the other hand, are we to just sit back and accept this treatment and never give anyone a chance? What will happen if nothing changes? What would
happen if Ron Paul got into office and did the same thing that all presidents do after so many people like myself have finally seen something in a
candidate worth a second look? Would anarchy and chaos follow soon after? I don't think the American public needs to be pushed too much further
before something gives and it's not going to be pretty.
By the way, to the poster that showed the polls skewing links, what is dangerous to the West that Paul has planned? You can't just tease everyone
like that and not go into what you're talking about.
I'm not trying to be pessimistic, just putting some stuff out there is all.
