As far as the topic of this post...meaning that RP is going or gone broke.
I have to say..
PLEASE make them stop calling me!!!!

My vote is private. My opinions are my own to share or not.
And since this is a conspiracy site...how is this for a conspiracy, my posts have always been pro democrate (Harry S Truman) or aleast restrained. I have never been on the RP bandwagon. So how come they know this when they call my home? The last person actually want to debate the merits of Obama vs Paul with me.
I believe there has been good and bad in every president. I believe there are good points and bad points in both Paul and Obama.

If Ron Paul is broke or going broke it is because they are calling 15 times a week.

Man.. you really don't have any idea what you are talking about.
Ok a large percentage of cigarettes are taxes. That is still waaay cheaper than what it would be to farm, package and transport, in a competitive market. There is no way gangs could compete. The cost will severely drop and the combined price and tax will be miniscule compared to the jacked up price of illegal production, illegal transport, illegal selling, paying for protection and weapons, and then the mark ups that happen as it changes had from producer to distributor to dealer. It will be waaaaay cheaper for a company to do legally (not to mention companies will guarantee the same quality and can produce way more than illegal dealers, by the way it will still be illegal because they will be unlicensed and untaxed.) So get real.
Again, use your thinker.

The calls are made by unpaid volunteers. Also, could it be that they don't know you are a democrat supporter, but that they are debating between the two because Obama is the democrat and Paul is the republican nominee they support?

Ron Paul obviously does not get the CORPORATE support that other candidates receive. But I guarantee you that Ron Paul gets money from the broadest variety of regular citizens, if not the highest amount of actual donations. This is because his supporters are not necessarily "rich" when compared to the big-wigs who act as puppetmaster to the other candidates.

This should be obvious to anyone who knows what they are talking about. Ron Paul will fight against many of the revenue streams these corrupters utilize, so why would they give him money? And if you think corporations do not give candidates money, you are wrong. There are various ways they receive donations, and they aren't always on the up-and-up.

Paul doesn't receive as much money because, as I said, his politics are vastly different, but also because he has more INTEGRITY than all of the other candidates combined. THAT is why the people LOVE him, and why I think he will win if not cheated. If everything is done on the up-and-up from here on out, I'm sure he would win. But things haven't happened that way have they?

Let's ask ourselves who benefited the most from these backroom counts and shenanigans, and who was denigrated the most, and we will have our answer. I already know the answer...Do YOU?

Posts "in support of Paul", since you want to be so precise. Still pocket change in the political realm. And yes, still incredibly laughable!

I thought you were a lover of truth. I guess just like the rest you only love truth when it fits into your conception of what reality should be.

Obama also does very well with the troops as well, not far behind Paul. However, since they only track donations of $200 or more those numbers may not represent the troops at all. Pauls 300K represents at most 1,500 military personal and Obama's 1000. Now that is indeed over half of the 4000 (active duty. national guard and DoD civilians) donations made with the other 1500 being split between the other 3 candidates. That is 4000 total out of over almost 2 million personal. So what does the prove? That we have no idea who most of the military supports, despite the way Obama and Paul try to spin it.

It should also be noted there are plenty of military members who will vote for Obama. I see plenty of Obama bumper stickers in the PX parking lot. And most military members aren't going to punch you in the face if you think RP is a joke.

Heck, I think RP's campaign was doomed from the start and my husband hasn't gotten angry at me yet.

I hope most RP supporters have a greater understanding of how our government works than you do. The president in the current system is impotent. Doesn't matter who holds the office.


Well, now that's an interesting statement considering the President has the caesar-like power of the Executive Order at his disposal. I suggest you research that and reassess your impotence comment.

Ron Paul still has a chance, although slim, but the shills and mainstream media will never tell you this. Come on, look at who he's running against - A Mormon multimillionaire who's completely out of touch with the average American , a sweater vest wearing lunatic who's also a religious nut, and an adulterating, corrupt, political has been. Those are the other "choices" we have besides Paul or, there is always Obama.
The democratic equivalent of Rmoney - nobody really wants either of these guys.

Now you can see why many Paul supporters will write him in even if he's not on the ballot with "choices" like these.

RON PAUL 2012

I admonished you particularly because you attacked someone's post in a disparaging and broad manner. There is no value to your attack on "my love of truth" in this context. Although, I am sure that I can be "better" than I am.

My point in my post to you was to say that the person tearing down another's comment without actually communicating should be more observant of the post they are tearing down (You entirely missed the point of his post because his "math didn't add up..." But his "groaning" was directly relevant to the situation and was generally considerate.).

More so, why would there be any relevance to my own precision regarding his statements when I agreed with his unction, but not necessarily his premise (Because, I agree, his math doesn't add up.)? How do you dare think it reasonable public conduct to throw aside communication and trade it for intellectually biting others?

I understand that you think that you are right to have thrown this back at me/us, but it is unwarranted and very uncivil. Please leave me alone now.

Unpaid volunteers. Maybe. Caller ID says Vote USA area code 425 (washington) on some of the calls. Other calls come from Unknown with an area code of 314 (ST.Louis MO).
Someone somewhere is paying for these phone calls. And they are around 3 per day, everyday.

You have hit it right on the head I agree with you %100 why is it that the average Joe does not see the truth? are they just uininformed or stupid or both? Ron paul is the only sensible choice at this time he is the only candidate that has a sensible plan to pull the USA out of it's decline, women vote on how handsome the candidate is, the idiots vote on who is the toughest and wants to bomb and kill everyone on the planet,the special interest want someone they can bribe, It is really frightening to visualize PRESIDENT Mitt or Sanitorium or Newt oh my God,

Absolutely. The media keeps telling us he is the man, the front runner, the guy who can beat obama. They have been telling us this since 2008 and yet he has trouble winning primaries.

Ask any Paul, Newt or Santorum supporter about their candidate and you get passion. Ask the same of someone voting for Romney and they kind of shrug their shoulders and say, "Meh, well I guess he is better than Obama." No one really gives a crap about Romney. He is only still in the race because of the PACs that back him and the media telling us he is the man! This gets all the sheeple to line up as required to vote for him in primaries and he STILL has trouble. He is losing to Santorum people! Santorum!

The entire primary has been a search for the, "sheesh, anyone but Romney." Unfortunately the PACs and the media just won't allow it. Every time someone else gets a bit of momentum the media just destroys them. Newt, to his credit I suppose, doesn't care so they kind of gave up. He has done and said so many zany things over the years I don't think the critisizm phases him. Besides, he lives on plant new which orbits the star of gingrich so nothing else matters. Santorum is a loon and is so far right that even the media can't figure out how to make fun of him. What are they going to do? Say he is so loony he would ban porn, ban birth control and start a war in Iran?!? Santorum says this himself!

Then there is Dr. Paul. The ignored and the downtrodden. The Media has done everything they can to ensure that no one takes him seriously. It is unfortunate if his contributors are abandoning him. Looks like I better head on over to ronpaul2012 and donate a few hundred more.

I would just smile and give it up, they are sheeple for RP, he barely has 50 delegates and has not one a state primary so I doubt he will do much. I hope I am wrong but I doubt it...too bad.

I believe his popularity was way over-blown IMHO...

To be honest, I just stopped paying attention. This is to be expected. It's Spring break, and people are dealing with their won lives. Wait until May and June.

Doesn't matter to me if he only has 2 pennys to rub together, I'll still vote for him.

Voting is basically a suggestion box for slaves, nothing more.

Gives us the illusion of control.

The way I see it, the only choice in this election is Oboma/Obomney, or Ron Paul. If you're good with that then I guess you're happy, unless you like Newt, or Samtorm. In that case you're probably never happy.
