...For months allegations have been flying around concerning how stories about Ron Paul, which routinely receive well over a thousand diggs, rarely make it to the main page on Digg as a "popular" item.
Speculation centered around organized armies of Neo-Con bury brigades that flag each other when new Ron Paul stories emerge and bury them en masse to prevent wider exposure. The fact that hordes of trolls are stomping around Digg acting as electronic thought control police has been widely documented in the past . However, the popularity of Ron Paul is so mammoth that Digg has been forced to employ extra measures of censorship to block hundreds of stories about the Congressman from becoming viral.
It has now emerged that Digg has either directly implemented a policy to expunge Ron Paul stories from the website or that it has empowered "super-users" the influence to eliminate Paul stories with just one bury, even if the story has thousands of diggs from other users.

But, getting on to the point, several alarming things have happened in the past few days. MSNBC held a poll after the first debate, and Ron Paul did better than anyone else. The poll allowed you to cast a positive, negative, or neutral vote for each candidate. Ron Paul got the highest percentage of positive votes (38) and the lowest percentage of negative votes (26).
1. Ron Paul (38%) 2. Mitt Romney (27%) 3. Rudy Giuliani (24%) 4. John McCain (19%) 5. Mike Huckabee (13%) 6. Tom Tancredo (9%) 7. Tommy Thompson (9%) 8. Sam Brownback (8%) 9. Duncan Hunter (8%) 10. Jim Gilmore (6%)

However, despite the obvious, MSNBC then declared Romney the winner of the debate, while Paul wasn't even mentioned in the article.
ABC's poll showed Ron Paul wining by a landslide, and another MSNBC poll showed Ron Paul as the strongest candidate.
But despite all this, I couldn't find a single article on MSNBC or ABC talking about Ron Paul's success.
After just over 18,000 votes, the ABC News poll shows Ron Paul with 15,568 compared with nearest rival Mitt Romney who is on a paltry 245. After initially scrubbing Paul from the poll altogether, ABC were forced to add his name after a deluge of furious calls and e mails.

I PLEAD WITH SOME OF YOU , as I read through these posts. And some of you say, and I quote "I AM RON PAUL ALL THE WAY" .
There is a huge problem with this, as you should all be saying "I AM AMERICAN ALL THE WAY" ...
One problem, Ron Paul is the LAST hope for president that isn't CFR. And probably the ONLY one against WTO, NAFTA, CAFTA, Trilateral Commission, UN, World Bank, Bilderbergs, NAU, REAL ID, etc. The ONLY one. Point me to another Candidate that believes this, and I'll consider 'choosing' between two Americans. Until then, Ron Paul is the ONLY American running for president as far as I am concerned.

And once again the New York Times proves that they are really no different than the National Enquirer or Star. With bastions of fair and balanced reporting like NYT and FOX no wonder this country is going down the tubes.

Ron Paul will run as an independent in my opinion.
Well unfortunately when asked this exact question, he replied "No, we have no intentions of doing that."
And that poses a possible situation where we might catch Ron Paul flipflopping on an issue for the first time. If he doesn't win the Republican nomination, I think there are so many people who will be so insistent that he run under an independent or Libertarian ticket, that he may have to give in and try it.

OMG the RonPaul.com poll shows he has 99% support, but the Gallop poll shows he only has 10%! It must be a censorship!
