Ron Paul for President of the USA
« on: August 15, 2011, 09:48:17 pm »
I can't help it.  I want to meddle into USA affairs.  Just like USA meddles in my country's affairs.  Hopefully with this Ron Paul in office, he will call the troops back home and stop all the evil empire wars.

Poppycock. He came in a VERY close second in the Iowa straw poll, beaten only by Bachmann who, in my mind, doesn't have a chance of winning the Republican primary on account of her resemblance to Sarah Palin and her extremist, hateful rhetoric.

Ron Paul came in second place in the NH straw poll after Mitt Romney, who won't win the Republican primary either because he's Mormon (not that I dislike Mormon's, but let's be honest: US voters aren't going to elect someone who is of a minority religion that most deride to the Presidency).

Ron Paul obviously has a chance. He might be too radical for you as a voter, but that says more about you than it does about voters more generally.

Ron Paul wins 2011 RLC Straw Poll

Ron Paul Wins Historic Vote Total In Ames Straw Poll


Ron Paul Wins Historic Vote Total at Ames Straw Poll

Dr. Paul shatters expectations, proves strength of candidacy

AMES, Iowa– Congressman Ron Paul won 4,671 votes in today’s Iowa Republican Straw Poll, topping Governor Mitt Romney’s vote total from 2007 and drawing a near statistical tie with today’s winner at 27.6 percent of the vote versus 28.5 percent.

Dr. Paul’s finish earned him a strong second place and it was the fourth highest vote total ever received by a candidate at the important test of candidate strength.

Said campaign chairman Jesse Benton,

“Dr. Paul is surging in this race, and today’s results show the strength of his grassroots support and top notch organization.

“These straw poll results, our growing poll numbers and our strong fundraising shows that our message is resonating with Iowans and Americans everywhere.

“Our message was the same in 2007 as it is in now in 2011, but this time we have quadrupled our support. That means our message is spreading, our support is surging, and people are taking notice.

“We are uniting a coalition of longtime supporters, fiscal conservatives, constitutional conservatives, independents, tea party and anti-big government activists to take on the Washington establishment.

“Today, Ron Paul has emerged as a top tier candidate and is a serious contender to win the Republican nomination and the Presidency.”

i never said he is too radical for me.  in fact i never disclosed anything that might reveal my beliefs.

again my personal opinion is he has no chance for majority of voters based on past elections and reading popular blogs from left to right and anywhere in between.  statistically the odds are against him as well.  congressmen don't get elected for presidency that often, it's always either governor or senator.  but i guess time will tell.

My wife and I watched the very first Republican debate this year and that is when I got acquainted with Ron Paul. It was refreshing to see someone so candid and honest in the debate which was that much more apparent contrasting with his fellow debaters (who to me came off as sleazy and disingenuous). I was an instant supporter of his and would love to see him get elected.

Interestingly the talking heads on the television have been derisive of his chances on both sides of the party lines, when they even mention him, but he has slowly been building a support base. My biggest concern about his chances are his links to the early "Tea Party" movement and the farce of itself this has become.

I'm a big proponent of reduction of government and less infringement on personal liberties (like many others here on the forum I guess I lean Libertarian). Ron Paul comes across as someone with the same viewpoint which is a big difference from many in Washington. Go Ron Go indeed. :)

I'm currently leaning to Ron Paul, but haven't decided. By the time the primaries get to my state, they are usually decided anyway. It would be nice to be able to give a vote to an honest politician.

Alex Jones has been making some really good videos lately and that was one of his better ones.

In Canada we used to have 2 political parties; Liberal and Conservative. There were others in days gone by but my world started when it was Liberals and PC.

Then the NDP came along who were basically the wingy dingy liberals  ;D Prior to that the Liberals were in power lots. After that the vote split with the right wing (rich) liberals and the left wing NDP sharing.

Then along came the Reform party which was basically the ultra Redneck Conservatives which split the right wing vote. The Conservatives were reduced to being a Corvette party. 2 seats. Then they wised up and went back together as the Conservatives again.

All that to ask where will Ron Paul take the vote from?

Ron Paul is a Republican, not a third party candidate, so he doesn't take the vote from either of the two major parties, as he is a member of one of them. What could happen if Ron is nominated is that hawkish Republicans might stay home and not vote in the general election. On the other hand, fiscally conservative Democrats might vote for Ron in the general election and make up for that potential loss.

Have any of the polling services run a poll of Ron Paul vs. Obama? If so, what were the results? If Paul did well, he could use that to say that he's a viable candidate.

I am a big Ron Paul supporter, but not because I think that he as an individual, if elected, would have the power to make any positive changes. What we need is less government. He has helped more people to become aware that government is the problem, and the free market is the solution. His support is growing, but it may be too late for America. Americans are full of fear, and quick to surrender their rights for the illusion of security. Everyone seems committed to their own brand of socialism.

it appears someone is paying big money to keep Ron Paul out of the news

popularity is the key, the most popular will win this circus.  kind of like why burger king and mcdonalds are so popular with the masses.

US does not have government controlled media.  media is controlled by various special interests outside of the government such as Soros, Murdoch, Koch, etc, the complete spectrum from left to right.  even PBS is controlled by left-wing groups.

Yes, it is government controlled. Maybe you've never heard of the FCC: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Communications_Commission

i know what FCC does, but do you?  FCC has no control over media contents.  it regulates broadcasting methods but not the contents.  Mike Savage can bash anyone including FCC and the government and FCC cannot do jack to him.  and Mike Savage draws huge numbers.  where is your government control?

FCC also has no control over Internet media.

You need a license. They decide who gets one. Mainstream media is government media. You are right about internet media, that is why the government is looking to crack down on internet freedom. The traditional media has become irrelevant so they are running to the government, hoping for a little help.

absolutely you need a license because the broadcasting space is very limited.  It cannot be unregulated.

mainstream media is not government controlled.  please provide radio station or channel and evidence of government control?

you have not answered my question.  Mike Savage is mainstream media, his show is being re-broadcasted to hundreds of radio stations and his ratings are huge.  where is government control here??

Your argument would imply that anything "limited" needs to be rationed by government. Food is limited, land is limited, etc. We live in a world where everything exchanged is limited. Everything can be unregulated, but the violent gang of thugs supported by a brainwashed populace keeps regulations in place, and big profits for a few corporations are the result.

Name a mainstream broadcast news source that is broadcasting without government approval. Anything that is broadcast is the subject of government scrutiny, government censors. If you do not satisfy the bureaucrats, they can pull the plug on you. They put pressure on the media outlets, who can only continue broadcasting with the permission of government thugs.

The controlled media is the establishments first line of defense against Ron Paul. The establishment has developed methods of preventing a Ron Paul from getting a fair chance. The corrupt media is the issue, America is full of people who would vote for Ron Paul if they could hear his message, but the major network media outlets are trying to pretend that Ron Paul doesn't exist, and doing everything to suppress Ron Pauls campaign. The entire media may not be entirely under the establishments control, but there is evidence enough to make one believe that there is a concerted effort to blackball him from the democratic process.
