None of the above.
Ron Paul represents the 18 to 25 age college student or the kid that lives in his moms basement who hates Bush with a passion, and has Che guerva posters on his wall just like Obama does in his campaign headquarters.


Aren't politics fun? When else do you get to degrade large groups of people that you know nothing about. That's awesome!

Huh? They are proud to hate Bush and wear it on their sleeves. They can never find enough adjectives to describe their passion or venues to express it. How is that degrading to them? For some people to come in here and suggest these people were going to vote for McCain is an insult to any thinking mans intelligence. Oh well, it might not even be true, could just be hype because the supporters of Paul just cannot seem to let him go.

I dont understand the hostility towards supports of Ron, The man knows he cant win, yet he still runs. Why?? Seriously all those people living in the dark, please ask yourselves Why? It is so frustrating to think that people will not listen to him telling the truth, yet they will accept anything other candidates say or promise as gospel. Can people seriously not tell the difference between Ron and the NWO candidates? Even if they dont believe in what Ron's saying 100%, do they not realise that he's the American people's last hope of actual (not percieved) change. Would a complete change of structures that have not worked be so bad? Or is it a thing that people will only realise when its too late? Why are so many addicted to your current government structures that they cant quit? Or is it simply that people like Ron have it all wrong and the government actually are doing a great job? I mean what happened to people standing up for themselves. YOU THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA OWN YOUR COUNTRY AND YOU OWN YOUR GOVERNMENT, yet the vast majority decide to let themselves be owned by the very thing they own. I want answers please. How did things get this bad and what are YOU going to do about it??

The number of people here with "wasted vote" syndrome is truly sickening. No vote, as long as it's cast by ones conscience, is a wasted vote. Voting for someone purely because they have a "better chance" of winning, is much more of a waste than voting for who you truly feel should be running this country. The election is not intended to be a "contest" to see who can get the most votes, it's a decision.

What really gets me, is none of the Ron Paul detractors, who so fervently admonish his supporters, can give a reasonable explanation of their views of Ron Paul. None of them can express what it is that they detest so thoroughly about him. Most of them don't have the slightest clue about his stances on the issues. If you're going to take the time and energy to sling mud at people for supporting a particular candidate, the least you could do is actually be able to make a point, as to why you think the candidate is a poor choice.

Wow, you are really something else.

Ron Paul is more Republican or Conservative that Your McCain/Palin. He's very strict but he sure is. I actually thought you could have given a true honest opinion instead of that nonsense you posted.

It doesn't matter to the rest of america what Ron Paul claims to stand for, we never got past the 911 conspiracy garbage he was for. Maybe if he didn't start his message out in the fruitcake section we would have gotten futher into his agenda. He only garners at best 10% and that was not even evident nationwide in the primaries. His demographic is easily seen by who shows up at his rallyies, does his viral internet campaigning and disrupted strawpolls.

i had a difficult time getting any OP links to work...


so i finally got to the Ron Paul blog site that haS the 10 Sept press release

here: www.campaignforliberty.com...


there are 203 comments last i looked...
the most important one to me was by scott the 19th comment which
tell us that the 'Press Club ballroom' at 10:00am on 10 Sept '08...
is all booked up --- and Ron Paul is not occuping the room for a confrence or press statement as rumor has it.


next, its most likely RP will only be 'endorsing' Barr & the other guy


like i say, i couldn't get the other links in the OP to come up, so i just don't know where all these Naders et al are joining together in supporting RP.




www.ballot-access.org...
scroll down .ron paul is listed and bet that all third parties would be merging soon to challenge the 2 party system.

I urge you to go lookup Ron Paul. He was NEVER for the "911 conspiracy garbage" as you put it. Are you a true republican or just an Anti-Obama?

A good one!!
The only socialists are in the GOP. Do you have any idea what Free-Markets mean? Or how about Anarcho-capitalism? Republicans have no idea what capitalism is, even if they had Dick Cheney stuff it down the barrel of his shotgun and shoot the GOP in the face with it, they still wouldn't know.

Maybe he was wrong in how what he believes happened 911, hey the government have things wrapped up so tightly he would have to be on the inside to truly know what went on, which in turn would make him a mule of the government. What if i told you that yes it happened exactly the way we were all told but how it was ALLOWED to happen will never be told. There are many many many things that dont add up about how the attacks themselves actually happened in the first place, enough to make people like Ron believe that there is substance to what people claim happened. I'd love to know what makes you so sure that your government, with everything thats gone on over the years, would without a shadow of a doubt, not be in anyway responsible for the 911 attacks. Please fill me in.

"He only garners at best 10% and that was not even evident nationwide in the primaries. His demographic is easily seen by who shows up at his rallyies, does his viral internet campaigning and disrupted strawpolls."


When is it going to sink in that Ron could be the start of rebuilding the structures that are failing you at this moment. He does not have to be right about everything, he is human after all, but he could be the starting block that paves the way for a new way of life for Americans and the rest of the World, where brilliant, bright, intelligent people who actually care about you, can actually get to be YOUR President and run your government and not people bought by corporations, who DO NOT care about YOU.
I feel sad for you for it only being 10%, because guess what, in a few years (max) time you will realise, that not one thing has changed for the better. Someday you will realise that just because the people pulling the strings have new puppets does not mean that they have changed their ways. And worse still please remember that it was as obvious as the nose on your face.
Oh and the only thing viral that I can see is your attitude in your posts.

Damn I just realised what a waste of time this post is. Your mind is made up nothing I can do or say will change that. Good luck with your life. Peace!

Would it surprise you that Ron doesn't tell everything he knows or thinks, given the current power structure in this country?

Get with it! Get with, the Revolution!

I find it kind of strange that Dennis Kucinich isn't included in the names... maybe he is included in the "Others"? I imagine he would support Ron Paul rather than Obama...

I don't think Ron Paul will affect the results of the election. Sure, he will pull many conservatives over from McCain. However, he will also pull the anti-war crowd from Obama.

Why do we think that this press conference is to place Ron Paul back in the elections? Is that really the best idea that he has had?

I would vote for him in a NY minute, know that.

Wow you are buying into what the mass media is telling you which is not true.
Take me for example...I am a 43 year old man who owns his own home with a 4 year old daughter. I work for a military contractor(which I will not say who). The little lady still has to work so we can make ends meet.Last time I checked......yea.... pretty sure we don't have a our mothers living here and I don't recall us having a Che Guerva poster on the wall. We have a lot of American Indian style stuff.

Actually I would say that describes obama supporters. I dont know any Paul supporters that fit into that description. I went to hear Paul speak a few months ago and the demographc was more like middle class middle age people.
