It said a lot, actually.
A star for your collection on a point well said, as always.
I saw the same thing and it worked against us here in trying to get a small thing like Dr. Paul carried by our County. Not our State, not nation. Just
our damn county. 1,500 went to yell rah rah rah at the rally and diddly squat bothered to show up at the only place any of it ever mattered anyway.
The Caucus. Heck.. Paul had spent part of his speech talking about that very thing and how he got tons of support in events but squat for numbers
where it would actually make things happen.
I see so many saying the system is rigged..or it never works and never can. Well, I have to ask myself..Just how the heck would anyone KNOW? We
average 50% or less that bother to even show up on the big 4 year presidential elections and that's held now for decades. Mid terms are in the 30's
for % bothering themselves to show up. The Caucus system where the men running ARE determined 100% by numbers who bother to show up....have snowed
people into believing it takes a special invitation or SOMETHING to show up and stand to participate. The greatest fraud ever perpetrated on people,
in my opinion...after learning this cycle HOW the system REALLY works.
So...When people can't even show up to try, how anyone say what can or cannot work? We'd have to give it a good 'ol college try first.
Err.. lol.. Hope that didn't cross what you were hoping not to see... I'm not saying people can't complain...simply that we wouldn't know what really
works or doesn't unless we got just one year with a TRUE majority of those eligible showing up..and things still went bad. Then, well... Something
less than that started a little disagreement between the states back in the 1860's..eh?
We can't even joke about that when we can't even get much
over 50% to drop the Doritos and ding d ongs to go spend 10 minutes on a vote that's 100% free... lol
