CNN just said that the big establishment guys, the ones behind the curtain, actually think that Ron Paul is the best bet to beat Barack Obama. Did I hear that right?

That was in this universe...right? lol

That's what they do. Call it a conspiracy, laugh, case closed. I'm trying to think of the exact word when people use that psychological BS. Yea I'm sure the one time CNN's satellite ever cut out just happened to fall on that few seconds in which the troop was supporting RP.

Well that's rather interesting if those numbers are accurate. Ron Paul 29%, Rick Santorum 17%.

How could the exit polls not match the caucus results by such a wide margin? Hmmmm. I wonder.

Neo has it really mattered who was in office for the past 20 years?

Let's keep our eyes on the whole picture.

Wow earlier tonight Ron Paul was at 24 % and Romney and Santorum at 23% then somehow it all changed and now Romney and Santorum are jockeying for 1st. What happened?


More votes were counted...and Romney and Santorum had more.

really...that is all that happened...Ron Paul didn't have as much support as some people were hyping him up to have.

Out of the TOP THREE right now in IOWA :

ONLY 2 have the money to continue their national campaign

ONLY 2 have the organization to continue their nation campaign

ONLY 2 have top tier status in the next state, New Hampshire

ONLY 2 have the national name recognition

ONLY 1 has the enthusiastic volunteer base

ONLY 1 has the conservative voting record

ONLY 1 is talking about real budget cuts.


Despite a third place finish in Iowa,

THE REVOLUTION CONTINUES

ONLY 1 group of supporters came in third after predicting a landslide.
Once it becomes evident he will be going to the GOP convention with no delegates, he will call on all of you dearly devoted to support another candidate. Doubt if you all will, the Obama democrats, Blue Republicans ,will go back to their camp and the core fanatics will stay home.

What the numbers say is Ron Paul pulls indies and dems to the GOP voter base on his side, that makes him weak against mega GOP candidates but strong against Obama.

From my post that you quoted, which was wrong? none of it.



Looking at the numbers, Ron Paul held onto his solid 20% base, Who will be the next anti-Romney conservative when Santorum is dropped on his head?

Yeah Fox and the BBC also cut away from the soldier when he was about to speak about him supporting Ron Pauls platform. But if you talk about it, you're crazy! If you question it, you're a kooky conspiracy theorist! HELL yeah!

I'm surprised at all the folks shocked by the results.

The media, the polls can talk all day long about whom "they" think is ahead, as they try to manipulate voters opinions.

But it all comes down to the people.

It always has.

It always will.

Would someone please forgive my ignorance and answer something for me? I thought no delegates were to be gained out of Iowa, but CNN saying 25 delegates are at stake.

So far on this website: www.cnn.com... it shows the top 2 each gaining 6 delegates, and Paul gaining 4.

Again, forgive my ignorance, but I have voted only once (mistakenly) before these elections.. I plan on voting for Ron Paul no matter what, but these delegates are confusing me. Can someone tell me what this means?

I think with the votes for Romney/Santorum is basically who is more committed to bombing Iran first.


No it is not. Face it, Romney has more business sense than current POTUS and that is what a lot of people are looking for right now with the economy so unstable. Santorum is wholesome and family oriented. Those are the values the average American is looking for. People do see them both as strong in defense but not the "bomb Iran" thing you suggest.

Don't fret, Rick Santorum can have his moment in the sun. Meanwhile Jon Huntsman has been everywhere in New Hampshire. He's got the Reagan strategy. If he can do something interesting Huntsman could have a chance. New Hampshire tends to be more independent and sometimes pics the winner of the whole deal. I really hope Huntsmans hard work can pull off a win, just like Santorum appears to be doing now. One can only hope!

I've tried to stay a-political on ATS (expect for one other post to date) but, I truly believe that now is the time to send a message to our "overlords" in the ever-expanding government that we are "fed" up (yes, pun intended).....!!!

It is now time for America to make a choice. A serious choice. It is Ron Paul or more of the same. FACT.

Every other candidate is part of the same crappy system that we have been putting up with for decades! Don't get me wrong, the system did work in some ways for some of us in the past, but that is all collapsing fast.

So, even though it is pre-mature to discount RP on the Republican ticket... If he goes independent, do not, I REPEAT DO NOT, bail out. Stick with Ron Paul to the end. Even if it means we split the vote and put BHO back in for four more years. I know it stings, but if we don't break out of this 2 party nightmare then we are stuck being controlled by the same corporate interests that have been running things for years.

Do the right thing. Follow Ron Paul to the end, Republican ticket or not.....

Please spread the word.
