Ok first let me apoligise for another Ron Paul thread. That said, I had a personal experience during the last election that I wanted to share. I was
in Florida in the Tampa area during the Florida Primary. I was struck by all the Ron Paul signs, and the support of him that the folks down there
seemed to have. There were signs supporting him every place I went. I drove all over the central Florida area as far north as St. Augustine, and as
far south as Kissemee. Also to both the east and west coasts. Every where I went I saw signs. The day of the primary, as it was ending, I was
listening to a local Tampa radio station. They reported that Ron Paul had won the primary by a landslide victory.
When I got back to my hotel later, I put on the national news and was flabbergasted to see the MSM reporting that Ron had not even gotten 10% of the
primary votes. Now clearly one of them was lying. I would say it was the MSM due to all the support I heard expressed by the people I talked to there
and the support shown through all the signs.
Perhaps even if he does win, It will be reported that he lost. After all other candidates have won the popular vote, only to lose the electoral
college vote. After all we don't really elect the president the electoral college does.
