    Notice Mitt has 666 votes....that is because he works for me.

  • Richard - 8 years ago

    Pawlenty is no conservative. He made the Hennepin County taxpayers buy a stadium for the Twins, supports cap & trade, ethanol, and supports revenue generators like seat-belt laws.

    How many would take a bullet for mitt huck palin or anyone .But ask if they would for Ron Paul and many would step up ,Its his message of truth thats brings out the passion in people as Ron says Freedom is a popular thing.

  • PJSolarz - 8 years ago

    Ron Paul and Tim Pawlenty are the only viable candidates on this list. The rest are either inexperinced or politcal hacks, more of the same crap we've had for years and years. Paul or Pawlenty would bring about real change in the way our government does business. Romney looks and plays the part, but has an awful track record. Gingrich's voting record shifts as much as wind currents. Palin is not quite ready, while Michelle Bachman might be. I don't see anybody else on this list that is electable.

  • Orlando Liberty - 8 years ago

    Ron Paul is the only true conservative who understands common natural law and the true intentions of the founding fathers: extremely limited govt. at all levels, non-interventionist foreign policy yet strong defense when CONGRESS declares it, sound money and true individual liberty. All of the others are neo-cons who have had their chance and screwed things up even more. Dr. Paul, or Dr. No as he is often called in Congress, will, if given the chance, help to overturn the decades of bad legislation that has slowly engulfed America.

    As a matter of fact, his message of freedom will spread to other countries not by the point of a gun, but by leading by example. Ron Paul 2012 -- a no brainer.

  • Texas Chris - 8 years ago

    People who believe in freedom never give up. We fight for it until we are free or we are dead. Notice how the last 30 comments are pro-Paul? And the troll BOSSMAN is gone? The Romey-ites quit posting... I guess they're all standing in line at the Romneycare clinic.

  • In Ron We Trust - 8 years ago

    Ron Paul is the only choice for Americans who actually support the Constitution! We don't need more neo-Cons/RINO's like Mitt Romney, Huckabee, Palin, etc to destroy the country. Wake up and research Ron Paul.

  • Paul - 8 years ago

    Ha ha! SUCK IT Romney! LOL!

  • Brian - 8 years ago

    I get a kick out of the Idiot Romny backers.. FOOLS, Romney passed the same type of communist/socialist Health care in MASS. Are you people brain dead? It would be the same old same old.. Because of ignorant morons like you romney/mccain/bush backers, the US finds itself in the terrible position it is in now.. PULL YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSES! Ron Paul is the only one who can straighten this thing out. We can not go on the same way.. If Ron Paul is not elected in 2012 the US will become a 3rd world nation. Come on guys, VOTE PRINCIPLE OVER PARTY.
    Vote for the candidate who is NOT owned by big business or big banks.

  • MadMax76 - 8 years ago

    Well, the site will allow you to vote again if you clear your cookies and come back. I just voted for "other" to test it. I, too, would love to see a poll done that would register the ip address instead. That way the Ron Paul poll win would be that much more impressive; however, the assertion that this multiple voting trickery has accounted for Ron Paul's many poll victories has been shown to be false on several occasions where polls did have tight restrictions regarding multiple votes, i.e. the post-debate text voting polls that Fox News used during the last election. Even though those polls did not in any way allow multiple votes, and even though Ron Paul clearly creamed the other candidates, Hannity still attempted to dismiss Paul by dismissing his own network's polls. He did this on more than one occasion. Unfortunately, Hannity(who I loathe more for his belittling of other guests than for his positions) is listened to by most voters who consider themselves conservative. Unless Dr. Paul's supporters do the hard work of educating voters before the election cycle gets in full-swing(when the talking heads will make the uneducated folks' minds up for them), there will be little hope for a liberty candidate. Do the hard work now! Educate the people you know about sound money, personal liberties, non-interventionist(not isolationist--be able to explain the difference) foreign policy, and following the constitution. The message of freedom can win!

  • GMartine - 8 years ago

    Romney and Huckabee are horrible choices. Did nobody pay attention to their economic policies? Oh yeah, you didn't because THEY DON'T HAVE ANY!

  • Bob - 8 years ago


    You have to understand that not a single program can succeed if we are BROKE and WORTHLESS. Audit, then abolish the Federal Reserve.

    Vote Ron Paul in 2012!

  • John - 8 years ago

    I trust Ron Paul. Mitt Romney is a Corporate Fascist whore. Mitt Romney does not even associate with the Tea Party. He is worse than Scott Brown.. the turn coat. The thought of Romney being Prez makes me sick. I am a Republican but I'm not a fool for Neocons and Corporatists.

  • Goliath - 8 years ago

    Co-signed Dan & Ryan. Great posts!

  • Ryan - 8 years ago

    It's absolutely sad to see complete and utter morons on here like BOSMAN. One of the biggest non-educated trolls I've seen in a long, long time.

    So let me get this straight, you have candidates above, Romney, Huck ect.. who all have these things called VOTING records, in addition to filmed speeches. And from these, we can see these people are big government theives, who couldn't give a flying leap about a Constitutional Republican, stopping government from getting into our personal lives and couldn't care less about the federal reserve, our foreign policy and so on, and you people vote for them?

    And yet, one of them, Ron Paul, who has a voting record to back his constitutional views, which ARE Republican views, used to be anyways, and he's the loon?

    A Loon for wanting term limits? Talking about the insane pay federal employs are getting, how the federal reserve is destroying this nation, factually provides information about our economy and foreign policy, predicted the crisis we are in and talks about all the horrible bills that get pushed through that take away our rights, and he's the crazy

    A mass majority of you shouldn't even be able to vote. It's people like you, that allow this Democrat and Republican switch to continue. Nothing ever changes and the same ole, corrupt morons get elected, and you all praise them.

    You guys are psychotic.

  • Dan - 8 years ago

    I voted for Ron Paul. I think he's the only one out there that has consistently voted the same way and does not kowtow to the party line. Both the Democrats and the Republicans take turns every few years playing good cop/bad cop, and no real fundamental changes occur. Everyone else is talking about rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Only Paul has been consistent in everything he has said about the economy and the wars. Forget political parties. The country needs Ron Paul, the person.

  • Tom Rankin - 8 years ago

    "Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all." --Michael Rivero

    Ron Paul supporters are mostly educated Republicans, Libertarians and Classical Liberals like Thomas Jefferson. We do not turn into establishment sheep that follow party line. We are based on constitutional principles that support liberty. If that is crazy then koo koo ka choo.

  • Emily - 8 years ago

    Mitt Romney believes in banning guns and approves of socialism. He is very dangerous and is a Crony Capitalist. Also, something you need to know about Ron Paul, he always takes the high road and never turns his back on the constitution. He is a constitutional purist. The Dems and Neocons hate him... unless he is on their side then they brag about how Ron Paul agrees with them. When Ron Paul disagrees with the establishment they call him names and pass him off as crazy. Well, if you love the constitution and hate corruption then Ron Paul is your guy.

    @MaineQuahog your comment is very intelligent and well thought out. troglodytes like 'bosman' are merely just estalbishment trolls that are no better than the 'kool aid' obamanoid drinkers. the people have spoken once again. trollboy bosman has all of these conspiracy theories as to why' Ron Paul now owns 60% of this poll where neoCON romneyBROKEcare is now at 16%. you're right idiots like him have just been dumbed down to the point that they just follow along like sheople instead of looking at the larger geo-political picture.

  • Mike Sears - 8 years ago

    EVERYONE do the right thing, go to this Iowa poll. Show the Republican Party in Iowa and the nation who the PEOPLE really want to lead this country. The Liberal/NeoCon agenda of big government, high taxes and endless government spending on a wefare/warfare state must end.

    Get this poll to as many people as you can and...


  • MaineQuahog - 8 years ago

    Anyone who thinks Bosman knows what he/she is talking about needs to have their head examined.
    This nutjob is a troll pure and simple. It's because of people like him that our country is in DEEP! trouble.
    Instead of performing research, and investigating the "true" issues that threaten our nation they parrot the talking points the establishment doles out. In all fairness though it's not entirely his/her fault. The vast majority of the American public are so dumbed down they don't know Adam from Eve. So, they just re-hash the pablum that the media claims is important.

    Do yourself a favor.

    Ron Paul 2012.

  • PAFreedom - 8 years ago

    Dr. Ron Paul is the only candidate that has a proven track record of following the oath of office and bringing attention to the Federal Reserve. People may attack him or his followers but the above statement is what should be remembered over all other pettiness.

  • bony - 8 years ago

    It ain't the internets TJ. Ron Paul is no internet genius and neither are his supporters. Ron Paul also won all the post debate phone/txt polls. Are Ron Paul supporters the only ones who carry phones?

    I did do my homework. Did you? Why would a Gov. (Huckabee) have to destroy most of the hard drives in the computers when he left office? What did he have to hide? Would you accept that if it were Obama/Bush/Clinton?

    I watched just about every video of all of them running and listened to the words they were saying (and he did not act nor talk like a Christian) .

    I don't see you defending the others that were on the top ten most corrupt politicians list that year.

    You guys are all kidding yourselves if you think anyone on the gop ticket stands a chance agaisnt obama or whatever interchangable liberal drone they will put in his place in 2012. You need to stop calling each other idiots and criticizing people in your own party who choose to back a different potential candidate. They aren't going to win either way. Those of you who say ron paul doesn't stand a chance at winning, you're right. He isn't in the race to win, he is using the publicity to spread the word that our federal government is on the wrong path. Look at the millions of us who understood his message, and the young activists who work hard to fix the future. One more thing id like to point out is that it really doesn't matter who is president, things will not change unless we reform our senate and congress, and abolish the federal reserve. One who controls the currency controls the country:"give me control of a nations currency and I care not who makes its laws"-mayer amschel rothschild, founder of the federal reserve.

  • Joe - 8 years ago

    Despite what some people would have you believe, Ron Paul backers come from all sorts of backgrounds. I am a 30 something Husband and father of three. I am also a small business owner and lifelong member of the GOP who is concerned about issues such as the Federal Reserve, perpetual war, erosion of civil liberties,etc. Bosman, you are correct by saying that many Paul supporters are young and there is a good reason for it. While many of the older generations were still buying into this concept that we are living the American dream, the younger generation was wide awake seeing how badly they were getting crapped on. Many of the older generations have been asleep at the wheel which I guess is why they call this the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.

    Dr. Paul said during the 2008 campaign that if the GOP did not get it's house in order and return to traditional conservative values that we were going down and that is exactly what happened. How did it happen? Well a significant cause of us having Obama is that the GOP did not appeal to younger voters because we blackballed people like Ron Paul and instead focused on candidates like McCain, Huckabee and Romney. If Ron Paul is ignored again than it may signal the death of the Republican Party because the GOP will go down again and our nation may be lost forever.

    So for the detractors here, laugh if you like but your laughter and ridicule is exactly why we have Obama in the Whitehouse. Please actually read and listen to what Paul has to say and realize that what you are being spoonfed by the media is not an accurate portrayal of the man. There is a reason that the powers that be will stop at nothing to bury this man and there is an even bigger reason why they have not been able to do so. WAKE UP

    Ron Paul 2012!

  • God is Truth - 8 years ago

    Bosman, I read the responses here and you offer very little insight other than making immature statements to others and if you can grow up long enough to clearly understand that the USA and world is on the verge of a total economic collapse where billions of people could starve, maybe you will take a moment to feel a little compassion in the suffering of others.

    Dr. E Robbins wrote a beautiful piece here which offers one of the clearest and honest insights towards how many of us feel and our awareness of how we were manipulated in the past by our news media and political elites. If we manifest his statements in our own lives by taking responsibility for our actions prior to and hereon, we might start to focus this discussion upon what Ron Paul has spoken which alarms you.

  • Dwight - 8 years ago

    Shouldn't your goal be to win some primaries and caucuses? So what if Ron Paul wins CPAC 2011 and the Iowa straw poll? It doesn't mean anything unless you compete in the REAL election. And that's where Ron Paul doesn't have a chance (reference any poll of 2012 contenders). So go ahead and pat yourselves on the back for winning countless online polls and CPAC 2010, but you're coming away with nothing when people actually go to the ballot box. And speaking of CPAC 2010, did you hear how Ron Paul was booed when he was announced as the winner? That would tell me that the results were not at all indicative of how the people there actually felt. Maybe consider saving your big talk for after Ron Paul actually wins something legitimate (other than his seat in the House).

  • Texas Chris - 8 years ago

    @12on Paul; RIGHT! The 2008 economic dive happened 6 months too late. We (well, Dr. Paul) have had 2 full years of recession/depression to teach economics and spread the word about the Austrian school. It's on now. People openly question the Fed and openly distrust the governments. Ron Ron Run!

  • Maaac10 - 8 years ago

    Ron Paul WILL win CPAC 2011 and WILL win the Iowa Straw poll. We had 1% early on in the campaign when Iowa Straw poll.

    RON PAUL is a whacko! Granted I agree with 85% of his viewpoints, but other 15% are so far out there I could never support him to represent our party - that's because he is NOT part of our party. But, because they can't get enough lunatics to join his fringe they try to infiltrate the next closest thing, the Republican party. The GOP is very far from perfect, but the crude and rude Ron Paulites do nothing improve it, they just bash it over and over. It's very tiring.

  • Obama2008 - 8 years ago

    I never really heard much about Ron Paul until recently when he won that CPAC thingy. Look, I voted for Obama in 2008 but if these wars don't end soon, I think I'd vote for Ron Paul if he runs in 2012.

  • That Man - 8 years ago

    There is no question in my mind that the GOP has within their power the ability to force Obama into being a one termer, but that is only if they get behind Governor Mike Huckabee. Not sure if he will run again , but it would be nice to have a true fiscal and social conservative (not to mention an adult) in the White House. Those who know him best support him the most. There is a reason for that. They know his real record, not the twist fest and nearly humorous distortions that even some "conservatives" engage in.

    I personally know people who lived in Arkansas during his time as Governor. When Huckabee arrived, Arkansas was a corrupt state, with education, unemployment and infrastructure ranking among the lowest in the USA. And despite lowering taxes more than any Arkansas governor in state history, he has always answered for one significant tax hike to rebuild the state's foundational woes. What you don't hear much of, is that he signed the bill into law after the voters passed a ballot initiative in favor of the tax funded 80%!

    Huckabee didn't raise taxes, the people did. And to say that the most visible advocate for the Fair Tax Plan in American politics is liberal with economic policy, seems more than a little odd. That is not a liberal vision regarding tax reform and economic recovery. It, like many of his ideas and accomplishments, is an example of thinking outside the box and being bold enough to enact creative solutions to big problems,without worrying what the polls will say the next day. He answered to no establishment. He was loyal to no lobbyist.

    What his record shows as an executive leader, is that he is the most deserving person to credit for the literal modernization of the state. By the end of his era, Arkansas proved to be a model for restoration. It had a booming economy, low unemployment, better schools (went from 48th to 9th place), higher incomes and a relatively low tax burden compared to many states. And, though he arrived with the biggest state debt in history, he left with a surplus of millions.

    Mike Huckabee is in a league of his own. He has the most experience of anyone in the GOP bullpen at this time and has a likeability factor that would run off of any chart. Plus, his communication skills would even be envied by Ronald Reagan. Comparing Mike to Mitt Romney or some of the other "establishment candidates" would be like comparing Thomas Jefferson to George Jefferson. If Obama wins a second term, it won't be because of the liberals. It will be because many so called "conservatives" were so ill-informed and boneheaded where Huckabee is concerned that they failed to unite behind the wisest, most talented leader our nation has seen in a generation. Rush-Beck-Coulter-Malkin and their ilk offered up Obama for us the last time around , and it would appear they are gearing up for act two in 2012. Had they been honest with themselves and their audiences in 2007-2008, they would not be whining 24/7 today about the socialistic drain America is swirling down -- because it's quite possible Mike Huckabee would be President today.

    I spoke at length with a Mitt Romney supporter at this years SRLC in New Orleans. The only area that I was unable to convince her on was the ongoing wars around the world that the United States of America is involved in.

    She agreed with Dr. Paul's position on many many things, had nothing but nice things to say about him. She was there with her husband and with her young son who wasn't old enough to vote in 2008 but will be in 2012. Her husband was not as vocal and as outspoken as she was, but he was equally critical of Ron Paul's "isolationist" foreign policy.

    It seems that these Mitt Romney supporters were willing to overlook the clear advantages of Ron Paul over Mitt Romney on one issue, war. Sooner or later the wars have to end. Either by our country realizing that it is a police action type war or our country going broke. We cannot continue to be the police force in the middle east. The people there will not accept that indefinitely. We also cannot indefinitely fund these wars.

    I expect by 2012 the economy to be in much worse shape. Making the decision to vote for Romney now and being an activist for this decision now is the same thing as voting for another 6 SIX years of war in the middle east. Is that what we really need in this country?

    I would challenge anyone who is going to get behind a candidate that supports 6 or 8 more years of war to ask yourself and ask your candidate the following. Is perpetual war something that the United States of America should be engaged in?

    America needs leadership in this country that recognizes the foundation and bedrock principles of freedom and liberty. I challenge anyone who is supporting someone besides Ron Paul to give me a reason why the solution to every single one of America's problems is NOT more liberty and less government. Both of these need to go together in the same way that reducing taxes MUST be accompanied by reducing spending as a formula for economic growth. If you agree that getting back to our core principles as conservatives or as liberals, then I again challenge you to give me a reason why your candidate is better suited to make decisions that reflect the ideals of freedom and liberty.

    Ron Paul has the voting record, the personal life, the strength, the endurance, the character, the ideas, the facts, the wisdom, and the enthusiastic support of genuine American's to make this happen in 2012. All that is missing is for people who agree with him on principle to stand up for him at the voting booth.

    That Mitt Romney supporter that I talked about, I have a feeling that her young son understands what is stake. He didn't say anything but he listened intently. There is a reason that young people rally for Ron Paul across this country. They don't want to fight in wars that they don't understand. They don't want to pay for debts they didn't incur. And most of all, they are hungry for the truth that real men like Ron Paul bring on a consistent and unwavering basis.

    Ron Paul will be the only candidate with an R next to his name that can fire the young people in this country enough to get them to the polls and remove Obama from office. He will be the only candidate that will be able to withstand the accusations of racism that will come from the Democrat Party faithful, REGARDLESS of who the GOP decides to send out against him.

    Ron Paul's ideas have withstood the test of time. Ron Paul the man has withstood the harsh criticism and stayed the course. Now its time for the GOP and for fence sitting conservatives to step out the realm of status quo and send out a candidate who will put the Federal Government back in its place as a protector of individual freedom and individual liberty.

    Hey guys,

    When Bruner announces that Paul was the winner, 99.9% of his readers will ask, WHO CAME IN SECOND?

    And we know why, don't we?

    To bad you guys couldn't figure out how to get the polling outfits (Rasmussen, PPP, Gallup. etc) to call your supporters only. Then you'd really have the Poll thing rapped up.

    We live in a Welfare/Warfare/Wall Street State.
    I’d like to share two Great Myths of the false left-right paradigm of the twin wings of the Ruling Party that I have discovered over the course of my awakening and independent studies. I think that they can help begin to explain why our world is on the precipice of annihilation and subjugation by totalitarian government.

    Myth #1: Fascism and communism are polar opposites.
    They are both branches of the same Marxist tree–and this Myth has been thoroughly discredited by a great many scholars and intellectuals. For an exceptional examination of this very subject, check out the insightful documentary film “The Soviet Story”.
    Soviet Story

    Myth #2: Only leftists are opposed to interventionist war, the police/surveillance state, and completely arbitrary violations of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
    Today, to espouse a non-interventionist foreign policy is to commit the alleged sin of “isolationism” according to the lame stream media, intelligentsia, and government “leaders”; is to identify oneself as a so-called left-liberal. Yet, the real diplomatic isolationists are those that perpetuate an interventionist foreign policy of aggressive, undeclared war, empire, and arbitrary abuses of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The real right is in favor of the absence of these abusive and dictatorial government powers and the presence of justice according to nature’s law.

    George Orwell was warning us in his book describing a dystopian future. The following is from his book titled 1984:
    The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism
    It does not matter if the war is not real, or when it is real, it does not matter if victory is not possible…..The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous…..The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor…. A hierarchial society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance…In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation…..The war is waged by the ruling group against it’s own subjects, and it’s object is not victory over Eurasia or East Asia ( or Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, or Iran) but to keep the very structure of society intact.
    George Orwell

    Ron Paul for President 2012

    “Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is perhaps, the most to be
    dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.
    War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes,
    known instruments for bringing the many under the domination
    of the few. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst
    of continual warfare” James Madison

    Major General Smedley Butler
    Smedley Darlington Butler (July 30, 1881 – June 21, 1940), nicknamed “The Fighting Quaker” and “Old Gimlet Eye”, was a Major General in the U.S. Marine Corps, and at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history. During his 34-year career as a Marine, he participated in military actions in the Philippines, China, in Central America during the Banana Wars, the Caribbean and during World War I, he served in France. By the end of his career he had received 16 medals, five of which were for heroism. He is one of 19 people to twice receive the Medal of Honor, one of three to be awarded both the Marine Corps Brevet Medal and the Medal of Honor, and the only person to be awarded the Brevet Medal and two Medals of Honor, all for separate actions

    20 minutes ago Dr. Ron Paul was behind over 100 points. Now ... he is leaving polygamist neoCON romney in his wake!

    I want to recognize Dr. E, Robbins. There really is nothing else to be said!

    Paul could win if they allow Martians to vote.

  • BOSMAN - 8 years ago

    Hey Paulites, Everyonr knows when Ron Paul is involved in an online poll, SECOND PLACE is the real winner!


  • CT Johnson - 8 years ago

    Let's way.

    Huckabee...has no problem with much of the Federal Government and would only suggest minor cosmetic changes except the flat tax...not fiscally conservative enough for me.

    Paul...super conservative and has the voting record to back it...Like.

    Gingrich...I'm still ticked at him for not following through on the contract with America...nope.

    Palin...completely lost and doesn't have what it takes yet. Still learning alot....neutral.

    Pawlenty...maybe would be decent, but don't know enough about him.

    Santorum...really? If I was choosing a media person it would be Judge Andrew Napolitano...he knows his stuff and would uphold his Constitutional oath to his death while vetoing commies and liberals like he was wielding the Angry Fist of God himself.

    The others eh.

    I say Paul, Napolitano, or maybe Pawlenty (need to know more about him and his voting record and views)

  • lynnW - 8 years ago

    Robin, did you see proof of Hucks corruption...
    no, of course you didnt, cause it never happened. Theres a reason he served as govenor for so long. The people liked him. He balanced the budget and left that state with a huge surplus.
    He was named one of the top Govenors in the Nation, who cares about Judicials(non partisan my as@) list.
    No matter who you vote for, you should do your own homework and get the facts. Huckabee 2012!!!

  • Uncle Jim - 8 years ago

    "Mitt is the Man!"
    Romney is a cock smoker! He would be the 3rd term of W and 2nd term of Obama wrapped into one. Just another corporate/banking/military sellout, driving one more nail into the coffin of the once great American people!

  • Paul - 8 years ago

    This country could never survive 4 years of Mitt. God help us. Vote Ron Paul 2012 and win a free country!

  • robin whittmore - 8 years ago

    Ask the people in Ma. how they like the healthcare plan that Mitt started. Also don't forget that Huckabee was on the most 10 most corrupt politicians list of 2007 put out by a non-partisan watch dog group called Judicial watch. Also on that list were Hillary, Obama and Guiliani. Pretty bad when 4 of them were running for President and actually got votes.

  • Dr. E, Robbins - 8 years ago

    I take Ron Paul seriously and I am a doctor.

    It wasn’t until my son started talking to me about Dr. Paul and as pragmatic and dismissive as I am at times, he finally convinced me to examine him through his YouTube videos and I found myself waking up from a bad dream realizing that I was the fool all along for supporting the likes of John McCain and falling in the Sarah Palin love fest hysteria.

    It is very easy to understand Congressman Paul’s message for it resonates what is great about our nation and unites people from both political parties and I am a true believer that Ron Paul can win in 2012 if the other rigid souls like myself stop listening to the chatter from talking heads in our media and start to do a great deal of soul searching to see the brilliance in his philosophy.

    Let me explain to you that Ron Paul was right about the economic collapse as he had warned the people for years about the housing and our current asset bubbles. Each time he has spoken, his wisdom embodies a sense of humility and reason that will overcome the grasp of evil that has controlled us by playing on our basic emotion of fear.

    I find myself constantly reading blogs every single time an article is written about Dr. Paul just to achieve a greater understanding of the pulse of the people and oftentimes I am humored hearing words like “isolationist” when describing Dr. Paul’s foreign affairs even though his ideas has been supported by more active members of the military than all other candidates combined during the 2008 Presidential campaign. Surely if his ideas were so far-fetched as those who attempt to marginalize Dr. Paul claim he would not have such a broad spectrum of support from members of our armed forces. I’ve learned that when reading posts and articles, those who claim Ron Paul is an isolationist instead of a non-interventionist, they are either manipulated by those in our media into a frenzy or they are ignorant to the distinctions between those two words or they are attempting to marginalize him because they fear his voice of reason will unite people instead of dividing us across a wide array of minor differences that really don’t mean much in the whole scheme of life.

    What amazes me most is how my fellow Republicans sing the praises for Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, and John McCain even though their voting records are highly inconsistent to conservative ideals and in years past, we would have called them socialists or economic interventionists. I am deeply sorry for supporting McCain this past Presidential race and in hindsight, I am glad he lost for it has allowed a much needed fracture in the GOP base to occur and new voices to resonate a more reasonable tone. In regards to Sarah Palin, I could not vote for her either. There is one thing that will not settle well in America and that is anyone who quits in the middle of a game and in her case, she resigned as governor of Alaska which shows me she doesn’t have the depth of character to handle some of the most pressing needs in American history.

    Isn’t it time that we start facing the facts and deal with reality? Should we continue making the same mistakes over and over again while expecting different results? If you ask me, I am very humbled and optimistic that once people start pushing aside the insanity of repeating the same old mistakes and start searching for truth by not accepting what Rush Limbaugh says as gospel, we might start moving forward in solving our problems in a more reasonable way that not only helps Americans, but also shines a light of hope for the world to see.

    Ron Paul is clearly the best choice we have and I welcome you to the peaceful rEVOLution that can bring about real and lasting hope for mankind.
