I just want to see Bill O' Reilly's face if Ron Paul becomes the front runner. I guess all his polls were correct after all!

Way to go media!
I'd like to thank CBS, FOX news, ABC and all other media affiliates for shooting yourself in the foot!
A gold standard is an avenue, among others, to restore our trust in government, by appropriately constraining the discretionary power of government. In an era when five unelected bureaucrats on the Federal Reserve Board can spend over $2 trillion, and deny the rights of the people and their representatives to audit such spending, we know we are again in a time where "trust and honesty" in government is in short supply. It is my hope that re-releasing The Case for Gold will help to bring public accountability back to monetary policy. Its re-release will also expand and raise the level of public debate surrounding monetary policy.

Very interesting. So just wondering, but you know how the media has their own polls where It's usually ranked something like Romney, Perry, Cain, Bachmann, Paul. There are some results on this page. Who votes in those polls? Are they legit people, or "experts" (read: rigged poll)?edit on 15-11-2011 by mossme89 because: (no reason given)
They do a phone poll of a very small number. Usually 1000 to 2500 respondents. They respondents are registered voters, that are home at that particular time (not at work, not at school, not at kids events, just home). The respondents are people that still have a land line phone number. The respondents are people that are willing to answer a phone call from an unknown source during dinner, or during their favorite show. The respndents are people that are willing to donate 15 minutes or so to respond to a stranger and answer their questions.
In short, those polls are absolutely NOT representative of the average American! They only reach a narrow subset of the population and they extrapolate faulty data from 1000 people to an population of millions.
Polls are unreliable, period.
