The more I learn about this man, the more I like him.
I am very thankful that he is making his points part of the Congressional record. Future generations will look back in amazement as to how the
American people, unable to resist the establishment brainwashing, rejected someone who could have led the U.S. and the World to a brighter future.
I sometimes wonder if the American people ARE rejecting him or if that is just what we are lead to believe. Can you say RIGGED Diebold voting
Hawkiye, got me to do some double checking (I am trainable
) And I ran across some really interesting info.
Information from his 2007-2008 campaign
Ron Paul (as compared to other republicans)
1. received the most money from the armed services of any candidate.
2. had the most support from African-Americans
3. set two fund raising records: the largest single day donation total among Republican candidates and twice receiving the most money received via the
Internet in a single day by any presidential candidate in American history.
4. Received most of his contributions from individuals, at ninety-seven percent; compare to other candidates
For the 2008 presidential election, Paul received approximately 20,000 votes.
(Paraphrased from WIKI en.wikipedia.org...
The Blair-Rockefeller Poll was conducted after the 2010 elections and sampled across the nation, a total of 3,406 individuals who were 18 years and
older. This included 1,649 White, Non-Hispanic respondents; 825 African Americans and 932 Hispanic Latinos. The Poll oversampled participants from the
southern region of the United States, as well as African Americans and Latinos.
Despite the bias toward minorities and the south, a traditional democratic stronghold, 10.6% of the individuals polled identified themselves as
members of the tea party.
If you make the assumption that 50% were "democrats" and 50% "republicans", then roughly 20% of republicans are now also Tea Party. This
corresponds to the 9% for Ron Paul and the 9% for Sara Palin I mentioned above. It also explains why the Elite have gone to such trouble to defame
and derail the Tea Party.
The Blair-Rockefeller Poll although it comes across as a "Think Tank/University study is very much biased as can be seen in another Article about
the same poll.
One of Maxwell’s reports based on the study is titled “Tea Party Distinguished by Racial Views and Fear of the Future,”
I would call a "professional title"
Maxwell and political scientists Todd Shields, Pearl Ford Dowe, and Rafael Jimeno of the Diane D.
Blair Center of Southern Politics and Society at the University of Arkansas created the Blair-Rockefeller Poll.
This is another report from the same poll that shows the extreme bias of the Ms. Maxwell
Shifting Support for Democratic Party among American Elderly
On the heels of the 2010 mid-term elections, the Diane D. Blair Center of Southern Politics and Society, together with Winthrop Rockefeller
Institute, conducted a comprehensive online national poll of political attitudes and behaviors.
Overall, the results of this survey indicate that the traditional base of support among older voters that Democrats have relied upon since the
partisan realignment following the New Deal continues to weaken. While older voters continue to vote in high percentages, compared to younger cohorts,
clear support for the Democratic Party is confined largely to African Americans. While older Hispanics generally favored the Democratic Party,
they showed substantial willingness to vote for Republican Senatorial candidates in the 2010 midterm election.
Further, the traditional Democratic support among older Caucasians continues to decline, particularly among older Caucasians living in the South.
If these trends continue, the 2012 presidential election will require the Democratic Party to continue to bring young, and often unreliable, voters
to the polls. Further, the Democratic Party must continue to make inroads into the growing Latino/Hispanic population. If the GOP is able to
maintain its grip on older voters in the South, that tend to not only vote at high rates, but are also overwhelmingly conservative, Republican and
willing to support GOP candidates the Democratic presidential campaign strategy will be forced to continue building winning coalitions without the
assistance of most of the southern states. With growing populations and over one-third of the Electoral College votes needed to win the Electoral
College, losing support among the elderly is an important trend that scholars must continue to monitor....
So much for the study being unbiased, Ms. Maxwell might just as well have made the statistics up out of thin air.
