So, basically, you're saying, "give up"?
Let Bill O'Reilly, and everybody else in the media get away with trying to rig the election, by picking the candidates for us? (even more than they
are already rigged) Or, are you saying, go for the "lesser of two EVILS"?
Isn't that kinda what helped us to get to this place in the long run?
The fact that such a great effort is being made by the EVILS to downplay Ron Paul and his message means that we have to do everything possible to get
the word out to everyone we know about him.
He has been amazingly consistent about the policies he would like to see put into place for all these years. That alone would be a talking point to
anyone. His policies make sense! After all, why vote for your favorite flavor (D or R) only to see the same ol', same ol' happening yet again, AS
"We, the People", still have some time before the 2012 election, but it is running out, so we need to act now.
We can find out what we need to do to make sure that we can vote for Ron Paul in the primaries, which is what needs to happen to make it possible for
him to become the Republican nominee. But even if that would not work, he could still be a write in candidate.
There is a web site called BlueRepublican.com (I think ?) that gives information by state regarding what needs to be done to be able to vote in your
In the meantime, we can discuss Ron Paul with everyone we know. All we have to do is let people know why we like him, and appreciate the fact that he
has been consistent in his policies for a long time.
The average person probably doesn't know a lot about Ron Paul, EXACTLY because the MSM is not just dismissive of him, they don't even acknowledge
that he EXISTS, for the most part. When they are forced to acknowledge him, like Bill O'Reilly, their attitude subtly suggests that he is a crackpot
of some sort, or somehow dishonest, or wrong, or the poll is skewed because his fans are rigging it somehow (like, by responding, lol).
Most of all, the MSM tries to make it seem as if he's not really a viable candidate. We can let people know that he is. We can take every
opportunity to spread the word, give out his website, or share a video of him talking about his ideas.
Right now I am noticing that the EVILS might be a little more concerned about Ron Paul than they want us to think, because I have been seeing and
hearing suggestions that Ron Paul can't win, but may split the Republican vote which will allow Barak Obama to win again.
In 2008 I checked out a lot of the candidates that were running for the party nominations, and also some of the third party candidates. After doing
my research, there was NO WAY that I would have been able to vote for any of the major candidates on either side, and that includes Mitt Romney. (I
was going to say "especially Mitt Romney, but they all had some history I didn't care for, so...)
I ended up voting for a third party candidate.........I voted my conscience
, instead of the lesser of two EVILS, because I wanted to be able to
feel good about my choice. I didn't want to have to feel responsible for putting the other side of the coin, but still, the same coin, into office,
You do what you want to do, but a while ago, I decided not to either give up, OR go for the "lesser of two EVILS" anymore. How can we expect
anything to change if we give up before we get started?
WE CAN work together for the good of ALL of us, regardless of our differences.
