4 - Cain
4 - Santorum

I'm fairly certain 100% is still the standard amount used. Where did the other 4% go? I didn't see an option for "I'm just an idiot, so I can't decide on a winner".

What I love most, is that the ones who watch the mainstream media, will never know of this information, and information on similar stories, because those who do watch the mainstream media, generally use no other outlets for gaining insight on current events. And even if you show them, they don't even care, and try to discredit whatever sources you're referencing, since the sources aren't coming from the mainstream media, which they've been continually told to 'trust'.
Propaganda cloaked as entertainment is a deadly and addictive mix, and unfortunately, there are too many addicts out there to keep track of, as most of them don't even know they are addicts, such as my grandmother.
Every day I try to open the mind up of my grandma, who I am living with, since my mother passed in April, and she's really all the family I have left, and it's really quite difficult pulling her away from the mainstream channels. Literally anytime I catch her watching TV, she's watching HLN, CNN, or FOX News. I'll often watch with her, just to comment on every lie being told, but she'll usually just tell me to 'hush' so she can continue listening. It almost seems as if she falls into some sort of trance and interrupting it makes her upset.
I am just trying to figure out, if it's this difficult persuading one person, how on earth can it happen to several million, in such a short time before these elections. Plus, the fact that the majority of voters are older and have their ways set -- you can't teach an old dog new tricks, as they say, which I am learning this first hand - and they are usually not educated, nor interested, in what information is available on the web.
The people's eyes need to be opened, and they need to be force-fed the truth, with clear and easily understandable facts to back the claims, outside of the internet, in order to reverse this brainwashing, otherwise we're pretty much fkd.
2012 will definitely be an interesting year. It'll either be a great new era with Ron Paul elected as president, or the beginning phases of a new civil war, which will probably end up leading to a new world war. Let's just hope the people can wake up by then, else we'll be hopeless.

Nice vid. I love how I see more and more awesomeness come out of each new Ron Paul video that I hadn't seen before. There is just so much you can't put it into one video, or even 100.edit on 7/9/2011 by BeyondPerception because: typo
