Are you crazy Ron Paul supporters hitting the back button and "re-flagging" posts
here on ATS?? Is that how this thread became so popular, so quickly?
200 flags for something that is totally bogus. That should give you pause right there. Everyone here, including Ron Paul's staunchest supporters,
knows darn well that those fake-o polls prove nothing. Paul's supporters are certainly not the only crowd that rushes to the polls to fill them up.
I've seen the same call to arms on firearms sights, for example, where someone like USA Today polls the pulse of the public on the second amendment.
It's not EXCLUSIVELY a Ron Paul issue, but it IS an issue.
In any of the scientific polls, the ones that take a true random sample of the public, that are not "opt-in" "Y'all come on over and vote" polls,
Ron Paul doesn't even break into double digits. Indeed, some undeclared candidates are ahead of him.
If you really believe Ron Paul is at 75% I would submit that you are completely delusional. You are using a completely unscientific poll to "prove"
something that has not yet been proven at all. I suppose you have the complete right to be delusional if you want to, but let's just assume for a
minute that everyone here, including me, really wants Ron Paul to win.
Do you think believing in this nonsense is helpful to 'our' cause? Do you believe this gives us a realistic sense of where Ron Paul is today in the
polls and what he has to do to get nominated? If he's already at 75%, won't our task be much different than if he were at, say 8%? Wouldn't you
'spend the money differently'?
This reminds me of when Jesse Jackson was running his Rainbow Coalition campaign and 'doing well,' or so he thought, in polling even up to the
Democratic convention itself. I remember him saying, "There's somthin' happenin' in this land!" His supporters actually believed they were going
to win the nomination. They thought he had it sewn up. But he wound up with 8% of the delegates. Of course, he had people to blame, the MSM or "Party
Paul supporters will have similar bogeymen to blame--again.
People who are actively against Ron Paul will be looking at activity such as this thread and simply smile. Ron Paul supporters are being delusional
again, and as long as they fail to understand where they are really at, they will be incapable of winning.
That's what you all are demonstrating right now. You're getting lots of flags, but a flag /= a delegate.
