Watch this, does this look familiar to anyone???



Wow. I am so bitterly upset at the news. I always am, but tonight I am in this realm of hatred towards the news that I feel like I may exist in for another week or so. I am watching the CNN coverage of the caucus, now with 13% of the vote in, and Romney already gave his victory speech! I mean, WHAT? YOU CAN"T JUST PREDICT THE DELEGATES RIGHT AWAY IT IS NOT POSSIBLE! And to boot, they did this pre-voting determination 4 years ago, again with Mitt Romney oddly enough...

And is Dr. Paul getting attention, NO!!! They skipped talking about him four years ago, and now they are doing similar things. I have heard them comment on Newt, Romney, and Santorum multiple times, no one even knows Ron Paul is there apparently...

UGH! Ok I know this is not new news to anyone. In fact I would not be surprised if everyone here is yelling at their tv screens or monitors right now... but what can we do? Specifically, what can I do to make a difference? The answer IS NOT to just take it and let it happen. I run into too many people who love Ron Paul but don't vote because they say it is useless and that the public's vote doesn't matter, and I get it. IT MAY BE TRUE, but what can we all do to actually be heard? Emails and phone calls to the news does little to nothing, the Occupy movements no longer allow Ron Paul supporters to join in, so now what?

I need answers, and truth be told I doubt I am the only one. Come on people let's brainstorm and get something going!

Oh and look back up at the video. They had Romney as the winner with less than 1% of the vote counted.... pathetic!!

I Noticed that too! I was skipping between CNN Fox and MSNBC and ALL of them had Romney winning with around 22% but CNN had only 13%! I took special note a few weeks ago when I noticed the same thing. I have known the elections are rigged one way or another for sometime or I should say have my suspicions but what I don't get is how are the people not realizing this when they report a winner w/not even 50% reporting results!

The system is truly pathetic! It's like they have the winner pre-selected way before the 'polls' open. I think all we can do is urge those around us to open there eyes and get them to think. To rip off DHS slogan "If you see something say something" that's what we need to do to awaken others around us when we see something like this to the sham that is American Elections we need to say something! Elections.

I know, it is pathetic... I just--ugh--wish world peace to the world. I wish everyone was deaf and blind for just one day so that it would force people to just think...

People can make the right decision on their own, I know it... but the media needs to be destroyed. Mitt Romney has money and media attention--both need to be capped involving the presidential race.

The lack of Ron Paul coverage is definitely an intentional strategy with a definite effect.

Calling this after 1% with ~40% of that 1% sample going to Romney is just math though (unfortunately).


Looks like it will be the 0.01%'er vs. the socialist in the next election. I'll take the socialist if those two comprise our "choice".

I have no doubt that that 40% holds some indicator towards how things will turn up, but just look at what is happening! The media says something that does what to the public? I have a feeling that the media alone is what gives Romney so many votes. If the media said, "Oh Romney is a horrible guy and Ron Paul has the right political idea" then Paul would have way more votes!! People are too wishy-washy. Undecided people will go towards majority thought is my opinion...

I avoid watching anything political having to do with elections. I found myself getting so angry and sick at heart over the obvious deception that I just tune it out now. Twit Romney will be forced on us whether we like it or not. He received $496,200 from Goldman Sachs so far, more than 4 times what GS gave Obama in 2008, and we all know that Wall Street will back their buddy and make sure he gets the nomination.

This election is proving to be the most disgusting example of election rigging since 2000. I can't watch this bit of fiction this year. They don't even TRY to be subtle about their criminality anymore.

I agree full-hardheartedly. But what do we do?

I cannot sleep at night knowing that I sit by idly with no help what-so-ever toward truth

At this point, we cannot disrupt this phony election process, so we can only sit by and watch the show (or not....). Not enough people are awake enough to agree that these state caucuses smell like rotting garbage in July, so I don't see anything that can be done.

This is why I refuse to vote. I no longer trust in the system as being honest, and I will not participate in a lie.

Seems to be a pattern to me..Since Bush lost in 92. They seem to like 2 termers. They put Dole in against Clinton in Clinton's 2nd term election..come on..no one ever believed that Dole could win..then in Bush's 2nd term they put Kerry..come on Bush was the worst president in our history..but no way was Kerry going to beat him..now we have Obama in his 2nd term..he may take the title away from Bush2 as the worst president in history and they are going to put Romney or Gingrich against him..neither one have a chance in Heck of winning.

This is of course presuming that the elections have ANY legitimacy.

Peace

The only surprise I have had in the recent elections..is that Obama beat Hillary in the primaries for 08. I started leaning toward the notion that it may be completely rigged and not just being tampered with.


Peace

Hmm I see. Yes, logical explanation in the least. Yet, you will not even vote for the candidate you think is best, in the primaries?

Wow you do point out a good trend there. Yeah no news there that there is an agenda. Still, makes it seem so futile. It's good they have not yet resorted to disregarding the Constitution's term limit!

And where I get caught up in emotional distress is knowing who to blame. The politicians and bankers are corrupt, yet very good at manipulating people for there own gain... The media is mislead (blindly--I think) into presenting the future and manipulative agenda to the people, yet the people are willing to either sit back and watch (out of frustration or ignorance), or worse, go with the media! Should I blame the controllers, the workers, or the workers pets?? Each have their own chances to save humanity, yet all refuse to.

I guess in the end that makes me blame myself. Why does my mind insist on being informed? No... I must resist... the temptation to revert back to a sheep is great...

Not.
