Media Working to Tell Us Who We Want for President

There must be something wrong with the Republican field, if one follows the media.

First Bachmann was the front-runner for nominee. She was all over the news with her victory in Iowa, the conservative news stations praised her, the liberal news stations finding faults with her, and so on.

It took a couple of weeks for Bachmann’s fame to fade out. Rick Perry threw his hair in the ring. Suddenly the media were all over him. The polls showed huge support for him. The Republican leadership was excited. He had all the support he needed, he beat all his rivals the moment he entered the race, Texas prospered under his governorship, he was an experienced leader, he was a “formidable campaigner”. . . for another couple of weeks.

Then it was all gone. Suddenly we were back to Romney who “recovered” and now lead the field again. Again the polls showed how the Republicans just wanted Romney and no one else. Another couple of weeks.

Then Herman Cain appeared almost of nowhere and rose from 4-6% to 38% within a couple of days. He is now the darling of all Republicans, and the polls support him, while Perry and Romney are far back. Bachmann is not even mentioned anymore.

Let me try to understand this. The Republican voters are a bunch of immature imbeciles that change their loyalty to their candidates – and therefore the principles that those candidates represent – every two weeks. And they do it in large groups: large enough to make a candidate skyrocket overnight and then fall like a meteor in two weeks. Since the candidates don’t seem to change their principles every two weeks, then the preferences of the voters that participate in those polls must be based on something else but principles: for example, personal appeal, or just momentous whims. Or at least that’s what the media is trying to tell us.

I don’t buy it.

Yes, I know very well that the maturity of the Republican voters is not perfect; I know that they can be lured by rhetoric. But there’s no way that the whole Republican field is so vulnerable to manipulation as to change its loyalties to a candidate every two weeks without any obvious change in the principles of those candidates.

The picture becomes clearer when we look at the “polls” that are the basis for the media preferences to one candidate over another. With all the talk these days about “scientific polls,” most of those polls are anything but scientific. Most of them use 400-600 “responders” with no clear explanation as to how these responders were picked and not others. When it comes to the Republican presidential nominees, one phrase is used profusely, “likely Republican primary voters,” without any explanation as to what constitutes “likely.” Then the 400-600 responders are asked questions that usually are so arcanely worded as to leave many people wondering what the questions really mean. Then the results are usually not posted, but only a sample of what the media want us to know about the polls.

Ever since The New York Times told us who we conservatives wanted for our nominee back in 2008, I am suspicious. The NYT endorsed McCain. I was not surprised. I was surprised when there was not a single voice in the Republican establishment to raise the alarm that the Republican Party was nominating exactly the candidate who was endorsed by a far-left, die-hard socialist, bankrupt paper financed by Soros. The media at the time told us conservatives who we want, and who was our “electable” candidate. We know how that worked out.

So the media now is working again to choose our candidate for us. They try one to see if he will create enthusiasm. If he doesn’t, they try another one. Then another one. Not that there is a lot of difference between the candidates; the issue is more psychological than a matter of principles. The media just wants to tell us who we want.

I say we give them the famous answer of General McAuliffe, commanding the 101st Airborne at Bastogne in December 1944 to the German demand to surrender: “NUTS.” And vote for the one the media refuses to notice. The 13th floor. The man of principles who never flip-flopped and never betrayed the Constitution.

    This is absolutely correct. From week to week, to day to day ,they choose one who they believe, will be the next McCain.

    If anyone went to the october2011.org sit they will see all of the republican candidates, and even my fav Ron Paul
    missed the boat this weekend. While they were vying for the FRC Value Voters summit. The handlers ( campaign
    hired guns) did not see the best opportunity to meet the people who elected Obama and want real change now!

    RT.com Al Jazerra, and international press showed up to Freedom Plaza for Occupy DC Where were the Lame
    Stream Candidates? Where were the Republicans who were in a hotel 3 miles away?

    Thousands came from all over the USA to be here and the republicans had a chance http://www.october2011.org

      I don't know.. I have changed my mind not because of the media by a long shot but by listening to each and every one of them! I have learned Romney says he will offer each state a "waiver" from Obama care, he doesn't say he'll repeal it. His plan is probably to change Obama Care to match his disaster in his state...so I forgot him. I was pleased with Perry, then listening to HIM not the media I find he took money to make an executive order to make every little girl get that injection...FORGET HIM, he's another RINO. I like Bauchman, NOT because of what the media says but because of what SHE says. I have listened to Cain and what HE says, not the media and right now I find favor with Herman Cain. It's a process of finding out who is who and will they support our constitution and be honest and not just another politician. Give Americans some credit, we've lost faith in the media. Listen to the candidate closely and make our own choices. As we learn more about them, of course we will change our minds if that candidate proves to be less than we thought.

      • Irma from MA

        I really like Cain. I also like Newt - he is one smart person who will tell it like it is, and he definitely knows (and follows) the CONSTITUTION. I guess I secretly would LOVE to see Newt elected just to piss off the lefty media!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Republicrat

          Irma, my wife thinks so also. But she thinks he's there just for show and to round out the field. Like a horse race. (Actually she picks the winners 85% of the time). In my mind Newt G makes more sense and talks more sense than any of the others. But the same argument Obama used against him would probably be the same one he used against McCain. HE'S OLD! Well, so what. Maybe this country needs the leadership of a Senior Washingtonian. Our President, as a Junior Senator, hardly ever showed up when Congress was in session and then only to vote the way his Senior Senator told him to. His record since taking office has brought his popularity lower than most other polls ever, so lets consider replacing this young, brash, self serving, glib media darling with the strength of experience. McAuliffe was right. To hell with someone telling my who I should vote for. The country made a mistake. Correct it and lets move on. We've got a Nation to rescue. GBA!!

        • CactusPete

          Somehow, those two on the same ticket is appealing. That's the only thing Perry has said that I agree with. As Newt said about these 'debates', there isn't time in a 30 second answer frame to even partially get a plan explained. So, go to Newt.org and listen to his speeches at various venues to more fully appreciate what and WHY he says and thinks as he does. And compare it to what you hear from the other candidates, and don't hear from the MSM.

          Newt can get things done because he isn't afraid to listen and exchange ideas with those of differing opinions, like Hillary. Many times you have to dance with the opposition just to learn what they are thinking...doesn't mean you are trying to take them home afterward.

    • http://yahoo.com Thomas Martin

      I pay little attention to the media as it's so bias it's not funny. I have never voted democrat and I'm sixty seven and I will never vote for a democrat period. I consider myself a conservative and although we have many people running the rebublician ticket, I find myself siding with Mr. Herman Cain as he's got a plan. I like the 999 plan as we need tax breaks for all who pay taxes.

      I don't count the welfare breeders or the illegals who are helping obama destroy our country. Most liberals do not have a clue who is running as they're to busy watching dancing with the stars are high on drugs.

      I will vote for anyone but a democrat as they are the problem, they failed to pass a budget before the 2010 elections and now blame the GOP, they had controll over all the houses. They don't want anything but more money for subsidy to keep their sorry rear end in power to destroy America.

    • http://www.lprf.us James

      Yeah, I noticed that also. The article is such a product of the elite controlled media. It is as if Ron Paul does not exist. That's because he's the biggest threat to the establishment. Hey people, watch this documentary about your man President Obama: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaQNACwaLw He's the worst teleprompter reading puppet President Our Country has ever seen!

    • Joanneo

      The New World Order wants another of their group in the oval office. Our last five presidents have belonged to this group and they are now on the home stretch of destroying America.One more for a four year term should start a civil war,fill up the FEMA concentration camps and the massive amount of plastic caskets the government has in storage. WHY does America a free country need these camps? They have taken years to build, and each president has had knowledge of, and continued building them. They are very well built and very well guarded. Five of our potentials are members of this group, when they decide which one they want in office, that is the one we will be told to vote for by the news papers, TV, media in general. Who do you think owns most of our "news people"?

      • patriotrenegade

        "news" people? CFR owns All of them. Thankyou for your words. So few understand. They are shilling perry, cain, huntsman, and CFR newtie the newt upon us. They've got both sides of the race totally covered except Romney and Paul. I had hope that the tea party would have this all researched and ready to stop it. Boy was I dreaming. The "conservative vote has been splintered and disoriented. I was hoping for smarter.

    • T Lady

      Ah, yes. Here we go again. And of course they also want to create factions among the grassroots. I see the infiighting on practically every site I visit. Please America, don't let the MSM rope-a-dope us yet again! We've all seen this movie before and know how it will end: Four more miserable years of BHO.

    • cdl

      Sorry but noway would I vote for Paul. For me it has always been Romney. Second Cain. Even Cian voted Romney and out of all the other candidates would still go for Romney if he was out of it. They are the only two with enough know how to get us out of this situation if it's fixable. Paul's forein policys are nuts. And I don't agree with him in some other area's either.

    • Millicent

      Ron Paul is a dangerous man. His global views are insanity. I am conservative and of all the contenders, he is the one I am adamantly opposed to. If you idiots don't get behind whoever the Republican nomine is we will get the vile evil Muslim Commie back in power. Is that what you foosl really want?

  • Mad Angel on FB

    WELL THAT'S REAL FUNNY......WITH ALL OF THAT KNOWLEDGE OF CURRENT OBSERVATIONS, AND SOME HISTORY....NOT ONE MENTION OF RON PAUL.... WHO WON ANOTHER STRAW POLL!!!!....BY 37%...THE NEXT BEST WAS 23%

    • screw osama obama

      Good ole ron doesn't deserve a mention----It's OK for iran to have nukes.
      Ole ron has lost AGAIN!

      • Bob in Boston

        Yeah, you know, the whole war propaganda about "they hate us for our freedom" really isn't working anymore, so I don't think as many people are following the party line re: Iran anymore. The reality is Iran hasn't invaded anyone else in a *really* long time (unlike the US) and aren't nearly as much of a danger to us as some would like us to believe. When you hear the media spout that they are "crazy terrorists", anyone with a brain can figure out that you're getting a line of bull from the military/industrial complex. So you may think nobody will vote for Ron Paul because of his "crazy foreign policy", but I think what you'll find out is that alot of people think he's got the only SANE foreign policy in the bunch!

        • Millicent

          Ron Paul should go back on his meds. He is dangerous. His global view is ridiculous and will help to bring about the destruction of Israel, our only ally in that cesspool called the Middle East.

        • Jean Deaux

          Milly, I think you have been brainwashed when you claim that Israel is our only ally in the Middle East. Quite an ally, I must say. Did her level best to sink the USS Liberty in a false flag operation, has spied on us non-stop (I give you Jonathan Pollard who delivered over a million documents to the Israeli's). There is a very good case to be made for the Mossad to have been the instrument that took out JFK (he didn't want Israel to obtain nukes) and there is another good case to be made that our Israeli friends were behind the 9-11 incident in another false flag operation which was designed to draw us into middle Eastern war. That one sure nuff worked well. We're fighting Israel's wars on our citizens lives and dimes. Spare me the sympathy for Israel!

      • Mad Angel on FB

        if Iran does ever get them I wouldn't blame them......after all they have to protect themselves just like Israel and in particular against Israel.... all of the wars we are fighting all around them are all for the benefit of Israel
        Ron Paul would stop the bleeding of America to support our "special friend"...... they're like a spoiled brat who threatens the world (LITERALLY) if they don't get their way, and why do Americans support them?....self interests..... like misplaced loyalties, people who call themselves Christians who defend Israel for example.....after all they are in the bible....and Israelis are experts at propaganda
        but then again, so are Muslims...I've often said they are so similar they're like distant cousins fighting for so long they don't even know what it is they're fighting for anymore.....
        both of their bibles start out almost exactly the same.....but then veer off in different directions
        Muslims move here (and to other western countries) supposedly for a better life....but their masters can't seem to let them live it....everywhere they go the more of them there are the more isolated (enclaves) they get and they insist (by the Imams) on using their own barbaric rule of law....the only thing they use our laws and constitution for is against us

      • Steelegrave

        Yeah stupid GOP "We're all afraid of the ONE nuke Iran could build before the world sanctioned them back to the stone age that we won't support the one guy with sound monetary policy, who has a proven track record of supporting the constitution and the liberty of Americans and the courage to fight multi-national corporations and international banksters. So we're gonna vote for a Neocon who is the architect of Obamacare or a guy who was once a chairman of a branch of the Federal Reserve" You're gonna lose again!

    • Anne_PA

      Yeah Mad, another STRAW POLL!

      The Straw Polls that the Paul-bots travel around the country to STUFF THE BALLOT BOXES!

      They ADMITTEDLY did that during the last primary, and they're doing it again.

      Too bad for Paul, because it's nothing but a false and fantasy impression!

      • Mad Angel on FB

        You mean too bad for America.....all of the other looney tunes that are being shoved at us aren't doing anything but taking votes away from the one candidate who would save this country.....and unfortunately Obummer will probably end up winning again..... and he wasn't even vetted for the first term! I have a feeling if Ron Paul isn't elected in 2012 Obummer will be the last US president

        • Anne_PA

          No, what I wrote was, "Too bad for Paul"

          If I'd meant "Too bad for America" I'd have written "Too bad for America" but I didn't. I wrote what I meant, and I'll thank you to NOT TELL ME what I mean.

          I'm quite capable of writing what I mean.

          And there are MANY people who think Paul is a looney tune who is being shoved in our faces too, so I guess we're even.

          YOU may think that Paul is the "one candidate" who would save this country, but there are a LOT MORE Americans who disagree with you.

          It's also amazing that YOU and the other Paul-bots actually believe that Paul is the ONLY ONE who could beat Obozo in the next election. But that's YOUR OPINION, and only your opinion.

        • Mad Angel on FB

          LOL...... this coming from someone who thinks all the voters were bused in ...I sure wish I could post all of the poll results that I got screenshots of..... Ron Paul IS #1 ...GET USED TO IT

        • Anne_PA

          Well Mad, your posts, and the tenor of your posts, and your claims, are NO DIFFERENT from those of the Paul-bots four years ago, and currently.

          But the fact is, like it or not, Ron Paul has ZERO CHANCE of getting the GOP nomination, GET USED TO IT!

          Cheers! ;-)

        • Millicent

          Obama can be defeated if the Republicans stick together. Ron Paul is a disaster and is as dangerous to this country as Obama. Most everyone I talk to hates Obama and are living in fear because of this evil man.

      • Mad Angel on FB

        BTW Anne......read the first line of this article....There must be something wrong with the Republican field, if one follows the media......Ron Paul gets almost NO air time...... you can't convince me that people go around the country and EVERYWHERE they go, they out number the locals....sheesh

        • VT Patriot

          Ron Paul is unelectable. He has his following, very solid I might add, but IF (God forbid) he gets the nomination, then you'll see the media kick his loony butt all over the field. They're too busy right now trying to fragment the real conservatives in the field right now, They don't consider him a threat, just like McCain, so no sense wasting their ammo now. No, get the real folks crucified one by one, then whoever's left over will get the full treatment. Taking their pot-shots at Ronnie now, is just a waste of the Nuc's they would use on him - -and our election.

          Now, perhaps you'll understand why the MSM isn't wasting their tim on Paul, They know that most of the real concervatives would never vote for him.

        • Scott

          I guess most 'real conservatives' wouldn't vote for Barry Goldwater, or Robert A. Taft Mr. Republican, either. Just goes to show you what a farce and phoney 'real conservatives' are now-a-days; otherwise known as not-a-conservative.

          Ron is the only threat to the establishment/media in the race. What would they have to report on in a Constitutional America? The Government wouldn't even be noticeable. Remember ol' Jeffersons proclamation that no American should ever see a taxman? Contrary to mainstream thought, there was actually a time in which the Government was funded solely on a flat tariff.

          In most polls Ron beats Obama with Independents by more than 15% and he siphons off more Democrats and dis-enfranchised anti-war voters than any other Republican. The fact is Ron would beat Obama in a landslide, just how Reagan beat Carter in a landslide when all the media pundits and establishment politicians said Reagan was too conservative, too out of the mainstream, and would get creamed. We all know how that worked out.

          PS: I guess 'real conservatives' now-a-days support a new national Tax. Boy, can't wait until Congress gets their hands on that one. In case you missed it, the last 100 years weren't ensconced with perpetual GOP rule, and not as if that would mean much considering the GOP aren't immune to raising taxes (Read my lips No New Taxes; largest SS/FICA tax increase ever under Reagan, etc.). 9-9-9 YEAH BOY - SLOGANEERING, PLATITUDES, AND TALKING TO ME LIKE A CHILD. There was a time when 'real conservatives' weren't so easily manipulated. Remember good ol' Russel Kirk calling George Bush a War Criminal for the Persian Gulf War. You going to say Russel Kirk isn't a 'real conservative'?

        • Millicent

          I wish you Ron Paul idiots would just shut up and go away. Ron Paul is a doddering old fool. I heard him in the first debate and nearly jumped out of my skin when he said it was Okay for Iran to have nukes. He is a dangerous fruitcake.

        • Scott

          What is your proposition to stop Iran from getting one? War? I wonder how much American blood and treasure you are willing to sacrifice for foreign powers. What would be the goal? Are we going to invade, occupy, and colonize the entire Middle East? With what money, and whose bodies? Seems the GOP are intent on bringing back the Draft with ol' Charlie Rangel. Remember a time when the GOP were staunchly opposed to a draft, as it violates every principle of individual liberty, the Constitution, and basic pro-life principles.

          It's like politicians can do no good domestically, but suddenly turn into God himself when it concerns foreign affairs. You do realize how completely insane that is, right? If Politicians lie, manipulate, and abuse you domestically, what makes them incapable of doing so in regards to Foreign Affairs?

          What do you think Iran is going to do with a singular nuclear weapon? I guess whatever country we do not like we'll just invade and occupy. 1.5 trillion a year on Militarism isn't enough it seems. Well that assuredly will bankrupt us.

        • Jean Deaux

          Well Milly, lets look at the issue. Israel has nukes as does Pakistan, India, China, N.Korea, Russia, France, etc. How many of them are our avowed enemies? I wonder how many nukes Israel has trained on American targets? It looks to me like Iran would have one primary target and that is, no doubt, Israel. Allowing Iran to become a nuclear power is not a popular view and you can be certain that our Zionist controlled press will continue to inundate you with propaganda to ensure you remain worried.
          Your "fruitcake" has more integrity in his little finger than the rest of the field combined. Who else wants to return the control of our money to the people at the expense of the fed. Who else wants to reduce the size of our out of control federal govt., return our people to their successful endeavors, defend our borders, and break the back of the tax man. He has it exactly right when he says we can still be funded by tariffs and duties and we don't need the hundreds of onerous taxes that burden us now. Cutting back the size of gov't is a necessity. So much for your "doddering old fool" metaphor. You sound to me like one of the"nattering nabobs of negativity"

        • Anne_PA

          I readily agreed there's something wrong with the media. In fact, there's a lot wrong with the media.

          Paul has refused air time, so some of that is his OWN FAULT! He's been openly INVITED on a number of FOX programs, and he just won't take them up on their invitations. I don't feel sorry for him.

          And quite frankly, I'm not worried about convincing you of anything. You have your mind set on what you want to believe, and there's no reasonable discussion or debate with anyone who has his/her mind so set that they're not ready or willing to be "convinced."

          But, whether or not you want to believe it, there were more than a few Paul-bots during the last primary who TOLD ME that that's what they did.

          However, if you want and need to believe that uncontrolled and un-scientific straw polls are more accurate and more significant than scientific polls such as Rasmussen and Gallup and the others, then you go right ahead.

          Good luck.

    • duwaynecook

      Hey mad angel you have hit the nail on the head, why has the media ignored Ron Paul, he keeps winning debate after debate, straw poll after straw poll, and still not one word from the main stream media. Not even a word from his holiness the great RUSH, not even a word from his disciple Glenn Beck. Just tell us who really elects our Presidential candidates, evidently it's no longer in our hands.

      • http://yahoo.com Thomas Martin

        duwaynecook, Rush and Beck are smart not to meantion Ron Paul, their rating would drop. Rop Paul has some great ideas, and then their the side where he makes a fool of himself in front of millions who watched the debates.

      • Mad Angel on FB

        LOL....... I think it's been a looong time since the "media talking heads" you mentioned are even listened to anymore by the 99%.....

        And actually since I posted the comment he has been given some air time....but then they go right back to the loons and try to marginalize him

        • duwaynecook

          Thank you for responding

    • Fort Worth Yankee

      I think the news media is getting everyone huffy right now, no matter which candidate is the flavor of the week. Bachmann, Romney, Cain, Paul, Perry, and all the other candidates have a long way to go. Iowa and New Hampshire will begin filtering out the weak candidates in just a few months. Those early 5 or 6 primaries are the real poll, not some made up poll by the likes of the liberal news media. If we all just turned off CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, and the others, and stopped your subscriptions to rags like the NY Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, and a whole host of other rags, we would stop this stupid "non-scientific" poll BS.

      The liberal news media wants us to fight among ourselves. Don't you guys see that? It is the well proven "old divide and conquer" stratigy.

      • Fort Worth Yankee

        The business at hand is to elect the next president in Nov. 2012. Right now ANY CANDIDATE in the GOP/Tea Party field is better than what we got right now in the Oval Office. When your state holds its primary next year, vote for the candidate you like, but also vote for the Senator (if you have one running in 2012) and local Congresscritter you like. The best GOP and Tea Party candidates are going to survive the primary process, only as long as YOU vote. Don't ever let the GOP hand pick another John McCain or Bob Dole again. We win on conservitive values, not with some "hand picked because it is his turn" weak candidate going up against a liberal DNC candidate.

        • Fed Up

      Only won it by bussing in 600+ people on Saturday to hear him, pay their $75 and vote for him. That is a farce and most of the straw polls are just that. That is why Ron Paul wins them.

    • SweetOlBob

      And who reportedly bussed in 600 supporters to vote only for him in a small venue straw poll.

      That is stacking the deck just exactly like our SLL* in the white house did with his town hall fiascos and his "clean and well spoken" (read rehearsed) little girls.

      We don't need this type of smoke and mirrors to create supposed support for a candidate they really do not have.

    Having been a former Scout Leader both with the Cub Scout's and the Boy Scout's I'm finding this extremely appalling. Letting Muslims infiltrate our younger generation of youth groups is totally insane and can not be tolerated.
    We never should have let things get this far out of control but now that we have it's time to do something about it and bring changes that we can believe in.
    This Muslim President has done nothing but bring destructive changes to our government while singing praises to the world of Islam and that's got to stop.
    I will never forsake my Heritage as a Free American and will till my dyeing breath is taken fight for my countries Freedom and ask you to join me in this battle too.

      @Richard. I have good news for you in that case. The Muslim Bortherhood hasn't infiltrated the Boy Scouts. Its just another made up bit of nonsense to inflame fools about a non-issue and stoke more anti-Muslim bigotry.

      I mean seriously, have you ever heard of anything more ridiculous?

    • Full Patriot

      I so agree Richard! It is the Muslims way of taking over our youth and eventually our Country!
      We have a fight with Sharia Law! We do not want it in our Country! Sharia Law comes with Islam, a religion, but! even though our Constitution says the Gov. cannot interfere with Religion our Constitution also protects us from the Laws of Others! Since Sharia Law is Islam, then I believe we do have the to throw them out of our Country by the Constitutional Standards, before they take it over. And we have the protection and power to tear down their mosques!

    • cjjjjjg

      Richard, I'm with you 1000% . . . reading everything I can get my hands on about Stealth Jihad and what the muslims are trying to do . . . I for one will stand up and be heard.

    • Jennie

      If that isn't bad enough, a muslim prisoner on 'death row' in Ohio recently filed suit against the prison system for serving pork. Eating pork or even the preparation of pork is not acceptable in the Islam religion. He was offered an alternate choice but he refused. So the prison stop serving pork to all the inmates because of one muslim and his religion.

      • Don C

        I used thumbs down because you are so right. I agree with what you said read it in my local news paper. Too bad if he doesn't like pork. Many colored prisoners do so they are being deprived.

      • Mad Angel on FB

        that was 2 -- count them- 2 Muslims.....and not only that but they wanted "consideration for how the food was prepared" in other words HALAL slaughter of the animals they are fed....halal is THE cruelest way of slaughtering animals there is....they slit their throats and leave them to bleed to death while they are awake and aware.........it's simply amazing given the fact that most Muslims in prison CONVERTED after they were convicted......

    • Mad Angel on FB

      I'VE HAD A RUNNING CHAT ALL DAY WITH A NEW FB FRIEND TODAY ....AND AMONGST OTHER THINGS OWS CAME UP AND I WAS ASKED
      So why are people too blind to see we need something different?
      Why can't they see that money corupts and the only way to stop it is to stop using it.
      (ME)
      self interests..... like the hope that maybe some day they'll be one of the '1%'.....as well as misplaced loyalties... people who call themselves Christians defend Israel for example.....after all they are in the bible....and Israelis are experts at propaganda ....but then again, so are Muslims...I've often said they are so similar they're like distant
      cousins fighting for so long they don't even know what it is they're fighting for anymore.....
      both of their bibles start out almost exactly the same.....but then veer off in different directions,
      but both of their goals are the same and contrary to the US constitution..... they both aim to rule the
      world and claim their god is THE one true god....whereas in the US you're free to worship - or not
      who you want to.

      Muslims move here (and to other western countries) supposedly for a better life....but their
      masters can't seem to let them live it....everywhere they go the more of them there are the
      more isolated (enclaves) they get and they insist (by the Imams) on using their own antiquated
      barbaric rule of law....the only thing they use our laws and constitution for is against us and to fight
      for their "right" to subvert our laws....and of course the idiots in our government only see the $$ signs
      from the various lobbying groups - like CAIR and AIPAC.

  • dsswickard

    your point, Mad Angel??? Straw polls are as meaningful as any other unscientific poll. RP has a few good points, but the fact that he is for Iran having nuclear weapons AND that he would sit down with people who lie as part of their "religion" and talk "peace" makes him the biggest fool in the contest. Even at gun-point you couldn't force me and many many others to vote for him.

        I used to live in Clarke County NV and was living there in 2008, I was also there when Ron Paul to a nice sized Campaign denonation from a man who ran a Whore House in Nye County NV during the 2008 Campaign, a few weeks later his campaign accepted a nice size contribution from one David Duke of Lousianna. Now in case you do not know who that David Duke is, allow me to enlighten you, That David Duke is a Leader in the KKK. In my view anyone who accepts money from a Pimp, or a member of the Leadership of the KKK is not worthy of even being called a Republican, let alone receive my vote for the Nomination for the Office of President of the United States of America.

          Actually, the report I cited was not only in the Las Vegas Paper, it was also on all of the News Stations both Radio and TV and was confirmed by several members of Ron Pauls Campaign staff both in Nevada and in Louisanna.

      You lie!

      He is not "for" Iran having nuclear weapons. It is simply none of our business. It's completely against our interests to be interfering in the hornet's nest over there, and foolish to keep thinking we can do so without getting stung.

      Talking even with known liars is just fine, with all our troops here they would have to know they couldn't touch us.

      • traitors in our gove

        @PepperdotNet _ find some Reality.... Iran having Nukes is the end of the world.. They launch one at Israel and the US and we (the U.S.) retalitate by letting a few go directly to Iran along with a few from Israel and wipe out Iran. Then Turkey follows Iran, then we get the rest of the Muslim world tossing bombs all over the place, and start killing Christians wherever we might be.. No, Iran having Nuclear arms is EVERYONE'S BUSINESS..

        Wake up. and what is the point in talking with known liars, they are just going to lie anyway, but now it is to our face.

        No good is going to come of this.. If it weren't for a couple of issues, I might vote for Ron Paul.... Or if he comes up against Herman Cain against Ron Paul in the primaries, I might hit the Paul ticket, as I see Ron Paul one step ahead of Cain..because Paul seems not to be throwing mud..

        So wake up and get your head out of your keister, but it is your right to vote for whomever you feel will do this country right.

        • Mark in LA

          Another profoundly stupid retard, probably paid by AIPAC to shill for Israel in the hopes of getting the goys to die stopping Iran. Well Rambo, what do you suggest we do? Nothing short of nukes or boots on the ground is going to stop them if Iran wants to build a bomb. They have uranium, the technology is 60 years old, and they can build underground facilities in the side of mountains that cannot be touched.

        • dsswickard

          Yes...you most certainly are what you claim of me. As you know nothing of me, but a single statement, that makes yourself the profoundly stupid retard.

          Oh, and they can be touched without nukes or boots-on-the-ground[that is except those CIA boots that are OTG in nearly ever country already]. It's popular name is M.O.A.B.

          in LA, you should consider moving as the brain-rot you display comes from too much LA smog.

        • CactusPete

          May have something there...an Islamic domino effect? Maybe we should stop zeroing in on Iran as the only spot of trouble in the world... or any specific country. Sounds like it may be the fanatic, radical muslims we need to try and 'contain'. Iran may just be a factory in the bigger picture.

          Paul may say we need to talk with the Iranians, but which one? Where to start, since there are several heads on that beast? And just what do we have to talk about that can't be wound up in about 10 minutes. If we could convince them that we are willing to just leave them alone, do you really believe that will be acceptable to them? Remember, there are about 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide, and only 10% of them hate our guts because they follow a different Koran than the others. That only makes about 150,000,000 certifiable nut cases, scattered around the world, who may not be so persuaded and don't care if we 'bother' them just a bit. It's our heads they want, not our minds.

        dsswickard, do you enjoy being a traitor to this country? Do you think anyone believes an idiot who lies like a thief in the night?

        Iran isn't suicidal, nor have they ever said they are going to nuke anymore. Nor have they said they're getting one. Iran is as much as threat as BIG BAD IRAQ. You have zero evidence to support a claim that Iran wants to destroy us. There for you're a warmongering idiot. Do you get that? You're a filthy, warmonger. Because you want others to die for you.

        Tell me, what is the difference between Ron Paul stance on Iran and the other candidates? If the other scum bag Republicans do not SAY PLAIN AS DAY THEY WILL INVADE IRAN over getting a nuke, what is the difference between Paul's view and theirs, besides rhetoric? Well? Please, tell us.

        Iran's people aren't interested in fighting a war, there is a huge amount of young people working, going to college and looking to further Iran from being set back. Yet you're going to demand we invade and kill them?

        ARE YOU GOING TO INVADE RUSSIA TOO? They're helping them. Not only do you have zero understanding of the constitution and foreign policy, but you clearly have no moral self being.

        I suggest you crawl back into the disgusting hole you came out from.

        • BGinTN

          "Iran isn't suicidal", have you read much of the Koran? Also remember that if there is any contradiction in it, that what was written later has more weight than what was written first. This they believe.

          "nor have they ever said they are going to nuke anymore"{anyone?}, I guess years of threatening to wipe the Jews off the face of the earth doesn't count, and the Big Satan after.

          "Nor have they said they're getting one", Yes, but their present actions point to the fact that they are.
          Actions do speak louder than words in their case.

          As for the young people, they do not control the Country. Their President and Government doesn't either.
          The Religion Leader's do.

        • dsswickard

          You..are the traitor. Prove to me that I have lied. You can't, because I haven't.

          Iran has but one goal. A world-wide Caliphate. One race[in the current times meaning], one religion and one peace, that of an all muslim world. It is the only way, according to them, that they can have peace. They have stated this on so many and numerous instances; television, radio, videos and so on.
          That you choose to pay them no attention is your problem and your peril.

          A warmonger...? No, just another veteran who actually understands what you never will. I served my country for 12 years. You never did serve, did you? Why? Let me tell you why. Your a coward, your just too ashamed to admit the truth.

          I haven't seen any of the other candidates even being asked about it. Paul opened his mouth and he's getting hammered for it. It's not like I told him to say this. His solution isn't my choice for that of being a good one, or even being viable.

          You say Iran's people aren't interested in fighting? Newsflash! Iran's people aren't in charge of their own country as you idiotically seem to think they are. And until they are, your argument is mute and irrelevant. One other thing you should be aware of is it is true they don't wish to die, but there are no moderate muslim's. If they stand to denigrate muslim terrorism, they have just put a target upon them and their families, which is why we hear from but few muslim's regarding terrorism. The majority of those left will do their governments bidding out of the same fear of death.

          Crawl back into "my" hole, huh..ya old, degenerant hippie? Maybe..just maybe, mind you I might if it weren't up to me and others, to counter you due to ALL of the hateful and hate-filled rhetoric you spew out in all directions..constantly. Oh, back to that hole...you'll have to get out of it before I might even consider getting in.

        We have very few troops here as they are currently spread pretty thin over there. You make a foolish assumptions that Paul can actually deliver that which he has promised. To do as you think he will, will only take us, as a nation, down another obama-like path.

Allowing them to have access and the means to deliver an atomic weapon upon another nation is INSANE. Wishing won't make it so.

          Having a small mob (700 people) that thinks they represent the American Citizens is a recipe for disaster. obozo has more than 700 dead to vote for him in chicago alone.

    • ausscyn

      When it comes to the nuclear issue & Iran, Ron Paul has not ever said he wants nuclear weapons for Iran he has said:

      1. Look at all the countries around Iran who have nuclear weapons, have we stopped them from developing them? What makes us the arbitrator of who can & who can't develop nuclear power or weapons?

      2. Iran is so small & backward, that even though they have all kinds of oil, they have to import gasoline because they don't have refineries. Do you really think they're going to develop a nuclear weapon? If they want one so badly, all they have to do is buy one on the black market. Where do you think all of the USSR's nukes went?

      3. So let's say Iran has a nuclear weapon. Do you think they're going to fire it? Let's say they did, two seconds later, they'd be burnt to a crisp by Israel. Do you think they don't know that?

      4. China, North Korea, India, the Soviet Union & many other countries have or had nukes. Did we go around telling them what they could have?

      • dsswickard

        He has said that it isn't our business. To me, that's an "I don't care" from Paul.

        1. None of those countries are attempting to form a single world order. A muslim caliphate. You either convert and become scum in the eyes of all, including those very muslim's you cowardly converted for, or...you die. Seems simple enough, but what don't you understand?

        2. Iran does possess 1 half of the necessary plutonium to build it's first bomb.
        As for Russia, it knows that we are watching them closely and also understand that most of our remaining missiles are still targeting them. And obviously not where YOU believe they have, or there would have already been an "incident"!

        3. Yes, I do! Those in power ARE suicidal and will be in control of these weapons when they do get them. According to the qu'ran, khomaini and the muslim brotherhood, they don't care. Their "religion" indoctrinates them to this from very early childhood on up. There are some dissenters, but not nearly enough to make a difference.

        4. You left out Pakistan. No, we didn't, but we did try to negotiate with them, though. Our talks with the likes of the Republic of Russia, China and N. Korea were nothing but a waste of time. We've already tried many many times what it is that Paul proposes we do again. "Those that don't learn from their history, are doomed to repeat it."

    • sleepdoc

    • johnny h

      Right on Richard:
      Only by citizens doing a bit of groundwork for themseleves can the next election be saved from the media manipulators. who are in turn in bed with politicians and interest groups.
      Look at the candidiates in your State. If you see one who resembles Ronnie Reagan, vote for HIM!
      DO NOT take notice of what media would have you believe, after all the media was behind Obama, and so were the African American groups, so glad at last to have a Black man in the WH!!
      Perhaps they will be careful next time!
      If you are for Country and Constitution, then look for a candidate who most closely matches your own love of Country.
      Do not be fooled again, or the USA may be on the downward slope!
      In 1945 after that other war, the USA became a beacon to the world. We need to take that path again, AND need to reinforce what America STANDS for. NOT Religion: NOT allah: NOT giving our country up to Socialism: NOT letting immigrants take from our treasury whilst Veterans live hand to mouth, NOT expanding Programs....we need to make the Beaucracy SMALLER,......Taxes less...... politicians term limited like the president, and more powers returned to the States and the PEOPLE!!
      Remember..... THEY work for US!!!!
      Don`t ever forget that.
      Also, if you are religious. remember that in US State and religion are SEPARATE!!
      If you are a Muslim....go home to the Middle East.
      If you are an illegal immigrant...watch for your gravy train to come to an end.
      2012 is going to be very interesting BE AWARE of those who would destroy our freedom and independence, and vote accordingly!!

      Adrian they didn't slip Obama's communist affiliations over our heads.

And, the reason our job of replacing Obama is going to be a lot tougher than some believe is that there are just as many of those free-loaders out there now as ever before --- probably more, he's had a lot of opportunity to cultivate them. We've got a real problem and the only hope is to get behind the one that comes out on top whether he is our personal choice or not or even one various media people conned off on us, and at least get rid of Obama.

    You had me up to the last paragraph. I won't be entering the wingnut-o-sphere with you to orbit the force field of lunacy perpetuated by a dangerous neoliberal, with no discernible integrity. Sure, Ron Paul has never flip flopped on the New and Not Improved Constitution According to Paul, which is seriously flawed.

    Ron Paul is ignored by serious conservative voters because he's about 200 years old.

    Ron Paul is ignored by serious conservative voters because he doesn't support, much less understand or agree with social conservative values.

    Ron Paul is ignored by serious conservative voters because his views not only aren't consistent with, but in direct conflict with those of the party he USES in order to even get his name ON ballot, state or national.

    Ron Paul is ignored by decent people and serious conservative voters because he bears the unspeakably foul stench of Lew Rockwell and the most vile racist, anti-Semetic rhetoric to be found anywhere.

    Ron Paul is ignored by serious conservative voters because his VERSION of Austrian economics, while appealing the surfact, comes with built-in anti-Semitism and racism if one scratches its surface.

    • Bob in Boston

      hahahaha, then why did Ron Paul win the Values Straw Poll, the most conservative group of all? Sorry, but Ron Paul is by FAR the most conservative candidate and will be supported by conservatives. Ron Paul represents exactly what the Republican party used to be and is supposed to be, it's just been perverted into something akin to the democratic party. None of the things you said above were even close to true - nice try though...

        Because Bob, just as they did last primary, the Paul-bot travel to wherever the straw polls are being held, and STUFF THE BALLOT BOXES.

          IF you had a clue about what your talking about, you wouldn't post such an inane thing as "those polls are biased and 'fixed' in their own ways."

          And perhaps, if you weren't so ill-informed and obviously UN-educated about just how these scientific polls are done, you'd actually understand the difference.

          But, obviously you don't understand, which is sooooo typical of Paul lemmings!

          "Facts" are such pesky little things, they just keep sneaking out.

          However, I'm beginning to think that Paul-bots and libs are just allergic to "facts." ;-)

      • Mad Angel on FB

        I JUST WANT TO SAY TO THOSE WHO ARE SAYING "PAUL-BOTS" VOTERS..... ARE BEING BUSSED IN..... SOUNDS LIKE SOUR GRAPES TO ME...

        WHY CAN'T THE OTHER CONTENDERS GET THEIR FOLLOWERS ORGANIZED AS PAUL HAS......IT'S THAT SIMPLE....THEY SIMPLY AREN'T THERE

        here is THE main reason many sheeple don't like Ron Paul
        ........................WAR.............................
        war loosens social restraints and can wreck cultures that pursue it ....

        ..and that includes the war on drugs.....the media has been extremely successful over the last 50 years at convincing sheeple how "evil" they are

        • Anne_PA

          Actually Mad, the real "SHEEPLE" are the Paul-bots.

          How do you think you got your "nick-name?"

          Because you're obviously roBOTS and unable to actually think for yourselves.

        • Anne_PA

          Hey Mad: See my post to Carl55 above.

        • AdeleINTexas

          I just want to say to all those Ron Paul supporters being bussed in and buying multitudes of straw poll tickets to vote, WE CAN READ YOUR BLOGS AND FACEBOOK PAGES, YOU VACANT-HEADED NINCOMPOOPS!

          NO ONE WANTS FOLLOWERS LIKE RON PAUL'S AND NO CONTENDER WANTS TO ORGANIZE JUST TO GIVE FALSE READINGS. YOU SIMPLY DON'T GET IT UNTIL HE DOESN'T WIN A SINGLE PRIMARY!

          And the DRUGS that have induced countless suicides, murders, violent crimes by USERS, as well as the death of millions of healthy BRAIN CELLS in their USERS has also been extremely successful at convincing people how evil they are.

    • Sandra

      I liked Ron Paul until I listened to him talk about NUKES, he believes it's ok for Iran to have them...EXCUSE ME!! We don't need that type of "bury my head in the sand and think everyone is nicey nice" attitude and then the USA gets nuked by these crazy terrorists who hate us and Israel.

      • russell

        Hmmmmmmmmmm... Pakistan, India, North Korea among others have nuclear weapons... Iran has issues with shooting a spitball across a room with any degree of accuracy... Tell me again why we should be concerned about Iran having a nuke... And also... when did God stop looking out for Isreal and the Jews or when did he recruit the US as his enforcement arm???

        • The Punisher

          We didn't have much of an option, or chance to stop those guys, we DO with Iran... and IRAN is the most DE-STABILIZING idjit in the World at this moment..... Sorry, but Paul sounded like a NUTCASE with THAT Comment. Would YOU give a person, with the MENTALITY of a CHILD, a LOADED GUN!?!?!?!?

        • carl55

          Another asisnine statement from someone with a diminished ability to reason. We had as much of a chance to prevent those countries from acquiring nuclear weapons as we do with Iran, none short of military intervention.

      • Ryy

        Hey Sandra, THANKS for being a coward and idiot. Thank you for wanting to force young people to die for you. That is what you want kiddo. You want to invade Iran and stoop them. What else is going to stop them if they were? Iran isn't a crazy TERRORIST. Nor have they ever stated they wanted to nuke or invade anyone. Do you even know the crap you speak? Look at all the other countries that have nukes or had them. Far worse than Iran. Their people are not terrorist fool.

        Iran isn't suicidal, nor have they ever said they are going to nuke anymore. Nor have they said they're getting one. Iran is as much as threat as BIG BAD IRAQ. You have zero evidence to support a claim that Iran wants to destroy us. There for you're a warmongering idiot. Do you get that? You're a filthy, warmonger. Because you want others to die for you.

        Tell me, what is the difference between Ron Paul stance on Iran and the other candidates? If the other scum bag Republicans do not SAY PLAIN AS DAY THEY WILL INVADE IRAN over getting a nuke, what is the difference between Paul's view and theirs, besides rhetoric? Well? Please, tell us.

        Iran's people aren't interested in fighting a war, there is a huge amount of young people working, going to college and looking to further Iran from being set back. Yet you're going to demand we invade and kill them?

        ARE YOU GOING TO INVADE RUSSIA TOO? They're helping them. Not only do you have zero understanding of the constitution and foreign policy, but you clearly have no moral self being.

        I suggest you crawl back into the disgusting hole you came out from.

        • Mad Angel on FB

          Thank you....Ryy....couldn't have said it better!

        • Anne_PA

          Mad: Ryy's comment was absolute NONSENSE, starting with the very first sentence.

          "Thank you for wanting to force young people to die for you."

          No one has "forced" anyone to die. Remember, we no longer have draft. It's ALL VOLUNTARY, and those who enlist do so with a sense of honor and integrity, something that the Paul-bots don't seem to have.

          And that's quite evident given the Paul-bots posts.

          Hell, you're all so childish that you can't post a comment without calling people names.

          Most children grow out of that name calling by 4th grade.

        • The Punisher

          Hey, are you sure you took your meds today? I'll bet you think you've recruited some more Paul-bots here today. You nutcases are the reason that Paul will never have a chance. Keep going, and if Paul doesn't get the nomination, you can all go over to obozo's side and blame the people on this site that have a brain. Just like obozo, he could recruit a few of his favorite morons to be Secy of defence, treasury, homeland security etc. Wouldn't that be great??????????

        • just sayin

          you are insane. iran never stated they would drive israel into the sea? they don't support terrorists and hamas? or hezbollah? who said we were going to invade iran or wanted to? they are not suicidal when that is their mission in life to hasten the return of the 12th imam? Pakistan is not a threat because they obtained nuclear weapons and everyone is afraid if their government falls, they will end up in the hands of terrorists? They are building centrifuges in Iran to process uranium for peaceful means when all they need to do to generate energy is to put a shovel in the ground? Iran has never said "Death to the USA"? Did you actually hear any other candidate say they would invade Iran if they got a nuke? The closest I have heard is that they might use force to keep them from getting one. What is real funny is I was responding to each of your flawed assumptions and statements and was going to tell you to crawl back under the rock you came out from and I aw your last comment and cracked up. You are a misguided fool with handfuls of incorrect facts! Plus you should tone it down. Spewing incorrect info the way you do makes you look like an Iranian Propagandist! (and an idiot)

  • AdeleInTexas

    Ron Paul is ignored by serious conservative voters because of his followers' blissful ignorance and blindness to the fact that his views are for the most part in lockstep with the hard left; because of Ron Paul's blatant lies, deceit, arrogance and the dirty political games his supporters use to even keep his name out there and his refusal to reject their dishonest, blatant and thoroughly provable manipulations of online and straw polls, as well as their brutal and oft times violent harrassment of those who don't and WON'T support their own anointed one. Ron Paul and his followers talk A LOT about the Constitution, but have demonstrated time and again that they are perfectly willing to trample it along with the rights of others to exercise free speech and peaceful assembly.

    And you can trust me on this: You have lost at least one reader as of today.

      I really pity you if you really believe your words. Your are and out of touch! Ron Paul is the only one who even talks about the constiution and has voted consistently so. Rick Perry is guilty of forced vaccines of the gardisil vacine, he supports groping of air travelers by TSA; Mitt Ronmney is a flipp flopper on all the issues, he does not support gun Rights neither does Rick Perry. Herman Cain is on the Federal Reserve Board so that pretty much keeps things going like usual doesn't. You have the guts to say all those things about Ron Paul, one day you will eat your words mister! You know nothing of what you speak and I pity you!!!

      • The Punisher

        Herman Cain is on the Federal Reserve Board......

        So working in an office rules him out??? REALLY?? Huh...... He wasn't the CHAIRMAN.. just head of a branch.... ok...

        I like Paul on many things, but being willing to ARM an enemy of the USA... isn't a smart move.... sorry.....by the way, when J E S U S shows up to run.. call me!! some of you seems to want a guy that CAN walk on water..... sad to say, we do not HAVE ONE!!

        • pearl87

          When has Ron Paul EVER advocated arming ANYONE? You need to listen to him and not the MSM, if you want to be informed. Ron Paul is a strict non-interventionist. He believes we should let other sovereign nations conduct their own foreign affairs. Yeah, a really crazy, radical idea. I like Cain as well, but his idea for a national sales tax sounds like a scary trap to me. I'm sure he could get that to pass, but then getting the income tax repealed would never happen.
          Ron Paul wants to repeal the income tax. Period. He is correct when he says that the more money they take, the more government we get - and that much less freedom. Paul is the the only one who can help us. God willing, we won't squander this last opportunity to save our republic.

    • Louis

      AdeleINTexas,
      I would like you to prove these facts you are purporting. Where are the Ron Paul supports willing to trample the rights of others to exercise free speech and peaceful assembly. Are you saying perhaps because a few excited paul supporters acted inappropriately (which you have to prove to me where and when) that Ron Paul then would somehow dismantle the 1st amendment. Do you really believe that. Also, where do you find Paul's "blatant lies, deceit, and arrogance" Please be specific with me as I am very fond of Paul's record of consistency throughout his 30 yrs of political prophetic warnings and accuracy. And you mention the word "brutal". Please show me how "brutal" these folks really are. Thank you and get back with me pronto.
      Of course, If I don't hear back from you, then I'll make up my mind about who you really are.

      • AdeleINTexas

        Disprove them, Louis. I don't march to your tune or goosestep to Ron Paul's either. Now shoo, little man. Thank you and if you get back to me, I'll be TOTALLY convinced about what YOU really are.

  • Bob

    Well, I for one was strongly for Rick Perry, BEFORE he got into the race. After listening to him at the debates, I changed my mind. His views on Immigration, the border fence, and other topics were not the same as mine and were so far from them, I looked for a different candidate. I actually like Newt Gingrich. I think he is the smartest of all the candidates, but has no chance of winning because of his "baggage". Currently I am still undecided, but I think Mitt or Herman could beat Obama, especially if they chose Marco Rubio as Vice President.

    • http://twitter.com/patriotsrn1 @patriotsrn1

      Herman could pick an even better running Mate that would help him Crush Obama...Allen West!!!

    • Cait

      Newt is a CFR man, he will do nothing to stop what Obama set into motion as the CFR set up everything Bo put into motion.
      Mitt believes America is a democracy - never refers to us as a Republic, that should trouble you.
      Cain wants to create a new tax and as we know, all taxes get raised. America has no need of a national sales tax on top of state and local taxes. He also wants to create a Nixon-like enemies list. His foreign policy is to clarify America's friends and enemies. The man has no idea what diplomacy means.
      Rubio sid there is no way he will be anyone's VP. Plus, there are questions about him being a natural born citizen - he isn't.

      • cobb

        Newt is a CFR Man? Two things, thing one at least he's a man and not a boy as is the current WH Occupant and thing two, what is a CFR Man?

          "The main purpose of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is promoting the disarmament of U.S. Sovereignty and national independence and submergence into an all powerful, one world government" - Admiral Chester Ward, former CFR member and Judge Advocate general of the US Navy

      Bob...how can you be against Gov. Perry for his stance on what our state decided on in state tuition...whether Perry likes it or not...the people have spoken...but then you hail Marco Rubio who is a product of in state tuition? It makes no sense to me...just wondering. As for the border fence...we must realize what other countries we have secured...and they themselves secure the borders...boots on the ground...Gov. Perry is for the border fence in strategic areas...they work in the urban areas because there is people...in the rural...there is not and too much of the greater majority of the terrain which is in Texas will cost a fortune to build if even possible ..You need to look into all the aspects pertaining to the feasibility of a fence.

      • Millicent

        He could have vetoed the bill allowing these criminals to get tuition. Sorry, no good

    • dingbat36

      Marco Rubio is not eligible for the Vice Presidency or the Presidency for the same reason that Obama shouldn't be in the White House. Rubio's parents emigrated from Puerto Rico (legally) but NEITHER had been naturalized at the rime of Marco's birth. Either you want the Constitution followed or you would throw it under the bus for YOUR candidate!

      Therefore I would have to agree with patriotsrn1 and opt for Allen West, a true patriot and a fearless support of what is right.

      • Lou

        From Cuba not PR

      • Irma from MA

        Rubio's parents came from CUBA when Castro got into power (circa 1959) Rubio was born about 7 years later in Miami, Florida - USA. There are only 2 requirements to be President (or VP): to be born in the USA and be at least 35 years of age. Marco Rubio IS eligible! It is of no consequence where Marco's parents were born.

        • Mad Angel on FB

          WRONG..... to be a natural born citizen both of your parents have to be citizens at your birth.....Obummer is a dual citizen....under British law any child born of a British subject ( which his father was) is automatically a Brit......dual citizenship is not allowed to qualify for POTUS, to safeguard against divided loyalties.... ESPECIALLY a Brit!.....when those rules were made we had just gained our independence from them....in Obama's case not only is a he a dual citiizen.....but he has other divided loyalties as well.....he was raised as a Muslim (his choice) and once a Muslim ALWAYS a Muslim....to stray from Islam is a death sentence....that's why they permit Taqiyya...and then there's the race thing.....

        • CactusPete

          You OBVIOUSLY have never read the Constitution. Very clearly says 'what's what' there, and Marco ain't one. Not that he's a bad guy, just not Natural Born.

    • traitors in our gove

      1st. Rubio is ineligible to hold any office higher than Congress. Romney has the failed Romneycare which Obamacare was modeled after... 2nd, Cain, well, he played the race card and that killed it for me... plus have you tasted his pizza???

      as far as immigration... a fence.. really? ya, let us build a fence, please... That way while we are all in-fighting and Obama steals the thing he should not be at anyway, that fence will keep us in... for how many people tried to flee any part of the USSR, how many people try to flee Cuba?? how many Chinese try to run..

      If we build a fence they'll go under, over, or through.. If we have guns pointing at them(drones, and feet on the ground) ready to be fired at intruders where will they go?? back the way they came or else...
      Gingrich would be good, but apparently too many people think he screwed himself a long time ago...
      Christie doesn't care about this country. Who does this leave us???

      I heard (rumor) that Palin might put her hat in as an independent (again I just read that over the weekend and kind of chuckled)...

      Any CONSERVATIVE with half a game plan could beat the pants off Obama... any generic conservative...

      • CactusPete

        I don't think Newt screwed himself, unless you think his 2 divorces are going to screw this country up any more than it is... And for Texas? I'm not sure even a fence is good enough, according to some retired General a couple weeks ago. The Zetas, a cartel in Mexico made up of a lot of expat US military, have infiltrated Texas from Ol' Mex, and intend to 'control' the fence, one county deep, all along Mexico. That would require more than a division of Border Patrol Agents to handle.

      Rick Perry is strong on controlling our borders in Texas. Unless you live here, you do not understand why he would let illegal children have instate tuition for college. If they are pursuing a path to citizenship, have attended at least 3 years of Texas High Schools and came here thru no fault of their own, they are eligible for in-state tuition. We had rather have educated Hispanics than those on the state or federal dole.

      Rick Perry is a strong leader, decent Christian man and would make a darned good President.

      • patriotrenegade

        I would respectfully submit to you an idea. Go to google.com, enter "rick perry meets with bilderbergers" Twice, 07, 11. Very not good. Same with cain, only worse.

  • Joyceann

    The tea party will not vote for Paul/Pirot - he doesn't have a clue how the real world works. Cain has a plan that will work, stands by the American working class and their values. He will lead this country back to what it was, where middle America is not the enemy - where majority rules. Now we are villified and ignored. His tax plan is more fair than the one he have, and I'm not going to vote against him because his tax amount may go up. It won't if most of America doesn't agree and we'll have Republican power of House and Senate. We will vote out anyone who doesn't pay attention to us.
    We not only want an American President who will put the flag back in the white house, but will vote out all the Congress who is wrong for America.

    • nik

      @Joyceann

      You think Herman "If you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself!" Cain is the champion of the working and middle class do you? Isn't not being rich what distinguishes the working and middle classes from the upper class?

    • Bob in Boston

      @Joyceann Funny - I think it would be more accurate to say that Herman Cain doesn't know how the world really works. When you're the CEO, you say things and people have to do them or they get fired. When you're the president, you have to build alliances and play the political game. Herman Cain will get eaten alive in Washington DC - his only experience anywhere close to "government" is when he ran the Kansas Fed, and that to most people counts as a disqualifier, not a plus!

      Anyone with even a remedial understanding of how things work in DC that suggests another avenue of taxation is a complete fool. "It won't if most of America doesn't agree and we'll have Republican power of House and Senate." That's a real Joke. tell me this...70% or more of Americans want the wars stopped and the troops brought home. Why aren't they home under your thinking? What we need is a man in the white house that understands exactly what he can and can't do. All of you people that support Cain act like he can wave his pinky and bring all these promises to you. It's obvious you either are in denial of the truth or are completely ignorant of the process. I suppose that's ok because Federal Chairman Chairman Cain likes it that way. I almost want him to win just so all of you morons that are spewing all those insults at the democrats for what Obama has turned out to be will get to eat it all from them when Cain does the same thing to you that Obama did to them.

    • Louis

      Joyceann,
      Ron Paul would be for a constitutional tax unlike Herman Cain, whom I like. Ron Paul's constitutional tax would be to bring the income tax down to zero! That is constitutional. Everyone else who can't support this is trying to force an unconstitutional tax upon you with you agreeing to it. I like the constitution,ergo, I like Ron Paul.

    • bxy

      you don't have a clue hoe the world works, genius....if you had the ability to think for yourself you would know Cain was a fed chair, supported TARP, backed Romney in 08, supports the patriot act, has been involved in scandals as a board member of companies, said economy was in good health right before 08 meltdown, and has flip flopped on many social / foreign policy issues

    • Nancye

      I like Cain, too, but can't see him up against Obama. I think he would lose. Also, the 9% national sales tax is being used in many European countries and while it starts out at 9, it will be 20+ before we know it as it has happened there in Europe.

      Can't support Ron Paul as he would not do what the constitution gives him the authority to do: protect our country.
      Also, I think he is too old (77 by election time). Maybe Rand will have a better chance.

      thanks, a needed laugh. It all started with them.

  • porclain

    Great article. I have supported Ron Paul for years. There are some seriously delusional people making comments here about him. They clearly do not understand what the constitution is all about. They want a "change" but they don't want to give up their pacifiers, perks or self agrandizing ideas for real change. This is how we got Obama to begin with. Seriously people grow up and become responsible for a change. Nobody owes you crap!

    • Anne_PA

      porclain: Not true!

      There are many of us who want "change" but not to the extreme that would allow legal drugs and prostitution, or lowering the age of consent.

      And clearly, Paul does NOT have an informed view of the Middle East.

      9-11 DID NOT happen because of our presence in the Middle East.

      This has been going on since 732AD at the Battle of Tours, and is exactly what the koran tells the muslims what they need to do.

      • Bob in Boston

        I can't believe anyone still believes the party propaganda on this stuff! First of all Ron Paul has NEVER said he wants to legalize drugs and prostitution. The only thing he has ever said is that it should be handled at a state level which is 100% correct, both morally and per the constitution. The fact that the DEA is now talking about confiscating property from legal marijuana growers in northern California is a perfect example of why the federal government has zero business trying to enforce these illegal prohibitions, never mind the fact that they are wasting our tax dollars to do it! Same with prostitution - it's been legal in Nevada for ages, why does it suddenly become an issue for people when Ron Paul says the federal government has no right prohibiting it? If you don't think prostitution should be legal, then I would recommend not moving to Nevada, otherwise keep your mouth shut and don't waste MY tax money trying to stop something that isn't going to be stopped either way, and some people in some states want to be legal.
        As for the middle east, you don't seem to have done any independent research because all of the real experts on foreign policy agree with Dr. Paul. Watch this playlist and if you truly have an open mind you will realize that our involvement in the middle east is very obviously the cause of 9/11. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1FDB569CCE...
        To say that 9/11 was not related to our occupation is an uninformed opinion.

        • Anne_PA

          Actually, Paul has said NUMEROUS TIMES that people should be able to do pretty much ANYTHING they want to do, and that includes protestation and drugs, and he has made the case for lowering the age of consent!

          And Paul maintains that the govt has no authority to stop them.

          Well, get this! American people pass the laws, and if the American people do not want drugs or prostitution legalized, then you and Paul are just going to have to deal with it!

          Do you ever actually listen to what Paul says???

          And WHO THE HELL DO YOU think you are anyway?

          "... otherwise keep your mouth shut and don't waste MY tax money trying to stop something that isn't going to be stopped either way, and some people in some states want to be legal."

          Just because YOU DISAGREE with the VIEWS OF MOST AMERICAN CITIZENS, that does NOT give YOU or anyone the right to tell us to "shut up."

          So typical of too many Paul-bots... ignorant and pushy.

          You forget, you don't have to like my, or anyone's view, but you DO NOT have the right to tell any one of us to "shut up."

          And I would STRONGLY SUGGEST that you take a look at this video by Col Allen West, who btw, has forgotten more about the middle east and the Islamic threat than Paul will EVER KNOW!

          Allen West: Ron Paul ‘Not the Kind of Guy You Need to Be Sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave’ http://conservativebyte.com/2011/08/allen-west-ro...

      • B. Hill

        I have to agree with you on this one. Even though I believe Paul understands how to bring the United States back into a more prosperous country, he is vague on Middle East Terrorist Muslims. If we allow these people to come into the United States, we won't have time to enjoy a good economical recovery.

        • Anne_PA

          B. Hill

          That's exactly what I've been saying for over a year!

          We have several issues facing us, but we have two major issues.

          1) The economy

          2) The Islamic threat.

          And if we don't have someone in the White House who recognizes the Islamic threat for what it is, and is willing to deal with it immediately and EFFETELY, then sooner or later the economy isn't going to matter!

          One wonders if Paul even knows that at this minute, there are AT LEAST 35 jihad training camps right here on US soil.

          And the idea of sitting by and just allowing Iran to build nuclear weapons is about as insane and deranged as one could be!

    • dfrank

      Porclan, I have probably been decrying our country's drift away from it's Constitutional moorings as long as has Ron Paul. It is almost too late to recover and return to what we were supposed to be. But, I disagree with Paul's attitude, approach and his apparent time line for returning us to constitutional government.

      It took us almost two centuries to drift to the sorry state in which we currently find ourselves and it will take decades to return us to something resembling what our Founders envisioned. It simply can not be done overnight. It will require time and patience, neither of which Mr. Paul has enough left.

      • dfrank

        Part II
        He and I both want to see it actually occur in our lifetime; but, sadly it just isn’t going to happen. Things are afoot today, however, thanks in large measure to the efforts of Mr. Paul, that give one reason for hope. I believe he should take solace in the apparent fact that he has brought his son along in his tracks and that that son will carry on the effort and in his lifetime great strides toward a restoration of constitutional government will occur.

        But, our country has to survive for any of it to matter; and, some of the positions Rep. Paul is espousing simply do not give people confidence that will be the case with Ron Paul as president. I like him, respect and honor him: But, I simply believe his anxiety to see it occur sooner than is practical creates a risk too great to take.

    • Leslie85223

      Disagree with how we ended up with Obama. He said he was for "change" - problem was he never defined what sort of change he had in mind . . . The sheep did the rest.

    • CactusPete

      Our Constitutional government, if strictly applied here, may work better for us than what we are currently practicing, BUT will it work as well now as in the 18th century, with the rest of the world? Paul has yet to fully demonstrate that it will, I think, as apparently many others less familiar with the concept do as well.

  • http://www.ignoredrealityblog.com tony

    The media has always tried to tell people how they should think. But the media has been steadily loosing it's power since the Internet came into being. The Media wants Romney or Perry, but the people are choosing Cain and ignoring the media altogether.

    • Curtis Bostic

      Their choosing RON PAUL!

    • Patrioticnut

      Tony, I agree. In this article the point is lost to the writer that we are going through the process of vetting our candidates. We like what we see initially in a candidate, then as they gain traction and the media is forced to recognize them and we learn more about them we find their flaws. Wow, the process is actually working. Herman Cain has been in the shadows just like Ron Paul until he began gaining traction, now his name is out there and everyone is talking to him, he'll continue to gain and will win the nomination, minus some great blunder that I very much doubt. The media would choose Romney, Who is Obama lite. We won't have it and I have lost all respect for this site that would endorse Ron Paul.

    • Bob

      I no longer listen to the media, I make my own decisions, right or wrong. I'm registered as a Republican but I consider myself an independent and that's the way I vote. I research the candidates and choose the best one, in my case it's Ron Paul, no one else comes close. I'm sick of these non-ending wars and lobbyist that corrupt our government and politicians that always have their hand out for sale.

  • http://www.The-Fishers-Of-Men.org Marylou Anderson

    Herman Cain has been my choice since the get go. I have not changed my mind.

  • Annieo

    Ok I now see this is just as pushy article for Ron Paul as you claim the media is doing......I don't think the media controlled the meteoric fall of Perry...I think he did it himself with his "you don't have a heart "line.....that was self imposed and everyone saw him as pro immigration...Michelle Bachman made several Gaffes that made her come off as a flake......Herman Cain is his own man and not supported by anyone but fellow conservatives, as to is Mitt Romney.......so please don't plant all Ron Paul supporters on this site...I am a republican who will make my mind up by my own common sense.

    • Warthog0

      By the same token..media reports what is important to their agenda. Reporting on stupid and brainless, caught up in the heat of listening to yourself speak, diahreah of the mouth, is as opportunistic as a trout feeding on flies. They expose only that which they want destroyed, from both sides. That media is overwhelmingly left of center biased is no surprise and by now accepted as fact. The self perpetuating jingle that FOX is a right wing propaganda mill, has to be looked at judiciously. The trojan horse gambit still works today, as not everybody that works or is part of the decision making core at FOX are right of center nor even close to center, as their logo implies or they would like you to believe. I do believe that the news they report is more evenhandedly reported than otheres in that field. The opinion programs are just that, every one has one of those as well.

    • Louis

      I like Ron Paul Annieo and I am not a plant Annieo. Frankly I can't see why anyone would support any candidate who opposes the constitution. Isn't this attitude un-american? You see, Ron Paul realizes that if he swears to uphold the constitution when he enters office, then he is required to do so. It's pretty simple. Vote the constitution, not some liberal version of it or take into your own hands extra constitutional acts like all the recent presidents have done. It should sicken every american who watchs a president place his hand on the bible or otherwise swears to uphold the constitution and then disregard it like some dirty rag.

    • bxy

      if you had the ability to think for yourself you would know Cain was a fed chair, supported TARP, backed Romney in 08, supports the patriot act, has been involved in scandals as a board member of companies, said economy was in good health right before 08 meltdown, and has flip flopped on many social / foreign policy issues

      • patriotrenegade

        thank you. Has met with bilderbergers, and attended the treasonous NAU conference. Like an earlier poster said, "do we really want a fed "reserve" banker in the White House?

    • Sancheleezy

      Herman Cain fact is a retired Federal Reserve banker and that is a fact. In the end the media does push those that the elite want in the White House so you don't be so simplistic in your thinking. Focus on the candidate or other candidates (if there are any outside of Gary Johnson) that truly believes in the U.S.Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We are not "planted followers OF Ron Paul---but believers in Ron Paul.

  • stevor

    Don't believe ANY polls. The "rulers" know how the Lemmings will vote for whoever is "ahead in the polls" so they can be a "winner" after election day, instead of actually educating themselve as to the best candidate.

    • Bob in Boston

      Exactly - go research the voting history of the candidates (those that have a voting history) and make your decision based on that. Because candidates will say ANYTHING while campaigning, but what really matters is what they do once they get into office.
      BTW - the best voting record can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Paul#List_of_bil...
      :-)
      By now most people should know that Romney is anti-2nd amendment, flip-flopped on abortion, and created Romney-care, Perry forced school girls to get inoculations of Gardisil for political gain, Bachmann voted for the Patriot Act, and Herman Cain was the head of one of the biggest branches of the Fed and says that the Fed shouldn't be audited. Do you *really* want any of those candidates running the country after viewing Ron Paul's spotless voting record over 35 years?

    Every single person on the planet has baggage of some kind. However...if we take a look at ALL the issues facing this country, both domestic and foreign...we have some serious problems to address to keep us from slipping further into socialism, radical Islam penetration, corruption and financial disaster. This means we do not need "the flavor of the month" leading the conservatives nor the country. We need the smartest man out there with experience working with a disfunctional House and Senate and flat getting things done.
    Newt Gingrich is the smartest guy in the conservative or liberal universe. Yes....he has some baggage. We ALL do. But listen to his answers on the issues. They are brilliant and common sense solutions. If we team him up with an Allen West...we would have the smartest and toughest combination of men who LOVE this country. Just saying....

      I like Michele Bachman also. However, I support Ron Paul foremost due to the fact of his unwavering consistancy to the constitution. Isn't that the primary duty for the president? I hope you take the opportunity to show me where Ron Paul is a "two faced liar" as you put it. Please get back with me so I can determine if it is worthy of my time to converse with you, and if you are accurate in your assumption. Thank you.

    • Cait

      Seems James enjoys spreading untruths. Here's a truth for James: Bachman is pro Patriot Act and therefore has no problem subverting the 4th Amendment. You are either for American principles or against them. Presidents shouldn't pick and choose which part of the Constituion they will adhere to.

They should support there selves & pay tax;s if they are illegal or leagle. This should be a MUST & HAVE TO? Other wise go back to there own country.

    Cain has all the qualities needed to beat Obama in his own rock solid constituency, the black american block. He is the only clear thinking economically orientated candidate we have.

    We are also told that we have a "weak" field. On the contrary, I think we have a very good field. While I prefer some candidates over others, there are only 3 that I would find it difficult to support:
    1. Ron Paul -- If he were nominated I might even vote for Obama since the O isn't afraid to use force against our enemies.
    2. Gary Johnson -- Since he's a Libertarian like Paul, he's suspect.
    3. Huntington -- who's he and what does he stand for?

    • carl55

      The only thing weak is your ability to see the truth. You are obviously a neoCon so you might as well vote for the Obomination, since you find it "difficult" to support candidates who stand for the principals our country was founded upon.

    • Louis

      Revamp things? You mean "fundamentally change the system" like Obama said. As I see it the system we have is almost as perfect as it could be. The problem is that those presidents we elect have a history of ignoring the system we have called the constitution. Tell me, why won't the people of this great country elect someone who will uphold the constitution. Like Ron Paul. He has a history of applying it's guidelines to every vote he has ever undertaken. So before you revamp the system, lets try to make the system work instead of ignoring it.

The people of this Great Crountry HAVE to come together , & get 1 Person to vote for or the Current President will get in again ! This scares the h-ll out of me ! Common people get it together before the election , or we,re going to bury this Great Nation ! HE connot win again ! ???

    • carl55

      dude the ONLY criteria you should look for in a candidate is - WILL HE ABIDE BY THE CONSTITUTION.
      Why can't you uinderstand that?

  • Bob Landis

    I think a lot of my indecision is because ALL the GOP candidates are a lot more respectable than what we have in the White House now !!! ( Even Romney) I liked Cain from the beginning , but I wasn't convinced that he had time to educate the people to notice him and his idea's. Now I think maybe he is getting the recognition he needed to win. I just hope the white GOP people can vote for the best man , whatever color he is. We have been labeled as the party that won't elect a black President , and sadly , I have heard comments that support that theory. If Cain is the GOP choice, we will need everyone to vote for our choice. Hopefully, blacks and whites will vote to get the liberal out of the WH so that our country has a chance of surviving.

    • carl55

      Sir - it is not about color, it is about knowledge and principal. Mr Cain has sadly show himself deficient in both pertaining to our country. That is, with regards to the causes of our current economic crisis, and to the principals and tenants of our constitution.

  • Patt Snyder

    I think the media just misunderstand the process. I think it is a little like dating. Each new guy coming my way and flirting gets my attention. We may date a few times while we get to know one another. Nothing serious, but still looking. Eventually, I will get serious and really get ready to commit to one. If I'm still not ready for that stage, maybe we will just go steady for a while.
    Meanwhile, the opinion of others about who should be THE ONE doesnt' affect me at all.

  • Al from Fl

    The media isn't much better than the Wall street protestor mob when it comes to understanding our American form of government and what the Obama admin is trying to do to this country.

  • ajfrench

    Bachman

  • LibRep

    Some people will say they are tired of RINOs and Ron Paul is a RINO since he's primarily a Libertarian. However, if you read the speech "Reasons to be a Republican" by Ulysses S. Grant, you'll find RP represents the Republican Party of old. I know there are some age jokes coming but you can save them. That's the Republican Party I belong to, not the one hijacked by warmongering neo-cons. I see all the candidates the same because they are all the same. In some way, shape or form, they will all grow government after promising not to. Ron Paul has stood on his principles and never voted against them to be popular. As one commentary had it written - Romney is Obama-lite and Perry is just Bush on steroids. Why don't we try a different course? You've all seen where the others have gotten us.

  • mike hartman

    Yes we CAIN!! 2012 !!

    I do not trust the media and have no intention of letting them or some celebrity telling me who to vote for.

  • James D Bast

    I.ve heard just as much talk about Women as I,ve heard about not electing a black man ! But I,ve listened to Michele Bachman since the beginning , & she might have made a few misteps , but she has never faultered on her Ideals ! She is for family , jobs , & the removal of all illegal aliens ! She has shown that she is not Afraid to stand for what she believes either ! That,s far more that I,ve seen from any of the rest of the Candidates !!

    • Cait

      She is also pro Patriot Act which gave us the Dept Homeland Security and the TSA and therefore does not respect our 4th Amendment rights. I want a candidate that respects every aspect of our Constitution and doesn't pick and choose which ones he/she will be faithful to.
      Please vet better.

  • skip

    There is still awhile to go, so we should keep the media all mixed up. We the People are the voters and come election day we will let them know. Polls are a bunch of bullcrap anyway you can call only the party you want to poll. Everytime we fill out a poll questionair we put our party down so how hard is it to rig the calls. The media and our schools have dummied down our people in America telling us what We want. I for one would like to see our youth veiw more films like 180 on the abortion agenda it does much more it opens there eyes to what Hitle did and what is happening to the USA. We need more films like this about our Constutition and Founding Fathers. Telling our youth how the government has changed our history.Youtube is a site to get things to the youth,WE should us it. I'd like to see Wall Builders.com put the truth out there David Barton is great on our history. We need to beat the Dem-o-rats at there own game. We need the youth to get the truth they will make up there own mines in the right way. The American people are confused and mixed up but not dumb.

  • Babylonandon

    Its not JUST the Liberal media, either. There is a RINO cabal of big financiers and power people who HATE the majority of the right wing of the party. As far as they are concerned something like Occupy Wall Street is WAY less a threat to the status quo than that most horrific of all outcomes - TEA Party control of the government. They'd FAR rather have 16 years of Obama than a real Conservative, and if they could figure out a way to do an "Auschwitz" on Evangelical Christians it would be their crowning glory.

  • Wyatt

    Hey if you believe the media you deserve what you get !

  • ausscyn

    When it comes to the nuclear issue & Iran, Ron Paul has not ever said he wants nuclear weapons for Iran he has said:

    1. Look at all the countries around Iran who have nuclear weapons, have we stopped them from developing them? What makes us the arbitrator of who can & who can't develop nuclear power or weapons?

    2. Iran is so small & backward, that even though they have all kinds of oil, they have to import gasoline because they don't have refineries. Do you really think they're going to develop a nuclear weapon? If they want one so badly, all they have to do is buy one on the black market. Where do you think all of the USSR's nukes went?

    3. So let's say Iran has a nuclear weapon. Do you think they're going to fire it? Let's say they did, two seconds later, they'd be burnt to a crisp by Israel. Do you think they don't know that?

    4. China, North Korea, India, the Soviet Union & many other countries have or had nukes. Did we go around telling them what they could have?

  • bill

    I for one don't listen to the Dumbommer controlled media. I have a free mind and will vote for the canidate that I feel will best represent the people of the United States. One of the current canidates will remove Dumbommer out of our house in 2012.

  • bob

    cain/bachmann or bachmann/cain 2012 no to the loser romney he does to much switching and is a morman cultist

    • Cait

      Cain doesn't believe in the 2nd Amendmend as he said states have the right to regulate/control gun rights - even after SCOTUS said that is unConstitutional. Bachman is pro Patriot Act which removes our 4th Amendment rights.
      Please vet the candidates better.

    could not have said it better myself, have said for a long time we need to totally clean house & start over & hope things change

    • carl55

      You want to see real change (back to our constitutional republic) vote for Ron Paul. You want to see real change towards tyranny and despotism (i.e. continuation of the status quo ) vote for any of the other candidates (they're all just Obama wannabies)

  • http://benjaminfulford.typepad.com/ Kangaroo

    These are the same polls that in 1980 told us that Reagan didn't have a chance, but he won with a landslide, and every year they put the republican in a loosing poll position, and they never apologize for their errors. The media put unknown Jimmy Carter in office.
    This is how the polls work, they poll during the day when Conservatives are at work, the poll results are then examined for age groups to be altered and gender groups to be re-arranged and other factors until the polls look the way they want. I can make any person I want look good in the polls, if I decide the criteria.

  • Ritchard

    I agree Paul is the only candidate with any integrity and good solutions. They media just keeps promoting the flavor of the month looking for someone to resonate with the public and out shine Paul.
    I think a winning ticket would be Ron Paul with Herman Cain as VP. Cain would be a a leader the blacks could be proud to have in office instead of the illegal alien the media and parties shoved down our throats.

    • Cait

      Paul and Cain would never work because Cain knows very little about our founding documents. Cain doesn't know the difference between what written in the Dec of Ind and Constitution and is anti 2nd Amendment. Cain also said the Patriot Act is '90% right on.' Cain is also pro Federal Reserve Bank.
      Plese vet the candidates on the issues.

    • http://wordpress.com usfrog

      I think a Paul/Cain ticket would be good too. However, Ron Paul wants to audit the Fed and Cain doesn't think that necessary. Paul is right, we absolutely must audit the fed. Too many back door dealings are going on with them. But Cain is a sensible person and true, someone blacks would be proud of.

  • John

    Intelligent people know Ron Paul is correct in his constitutionally based principles. The other "Conservatives" are simply brain dead puppets of the MIC and forming true fascist police state.

    Why don't you people want to live in a free and peaceful nation?

  • GladysMP

    I am a native Texan and nobody wishes that border closed more than Rick Perry. Perry has petitioned repeatedly for the national government to close the border. They refuse. Perry has no right to deport illegals. Perry must deal with things as they are, not as he would like them to be. Perry is right that a fence would not solve the problem. Cartels have already dug tunnels under the border…with sealed walls, air conditioning, lighting, etc. They start under buildings in Mexico and dig until under a building in the U.S. What is to keep them from digging under the fence?

    • TexasWildfire

      I also am from TX. Perry is NOT a teaparty conservative. He is at best an "old school" republican. In bed with big donors, selling out his favors.

    • Jackie

      Until just a few years ago, Perry was a liberal working real hard to get Al Gore elected.The Feds didn't have to give him permission to give illegals $100.000 each to attend University of Texas. He did this by himself. As for the tunnels,
      a small amount of TNT would eliminate this.

    • Cait

      But Perry, as governor, has every right to make it as difficult as possible to keep illegals at bay. No special programs for illegals would be a start.

  • billy

    The liberal media serves as the Democrats propaganda machine. Their biased reporting spins the Dems absurd talking points into newsworhy fodder for the apathetic voters who only care enough to catch (and believe) a soundbyte here and there. Obama may send a tingle up their legs but they are enabling him to CHANGE our country into his Obamnation. Biased news reporting is the same as selective censorship. The media types claim to be champions of free speech but they fail to provide an impartial perspective. They can't have it both ways.

    Those who follow the lamestream will drown in the lamestream, even though it's more shallow than a bird bath and twice as dirty. NO RINO's, no posers, no appoinments by annointments and no more dynasties.

    Confusion only happens to sheep who need to follow. Think people, do your own research. No candidate is perfect, simply pick the very best from the pack. Look for a fiscal conservative who shuns social policy. That candidate stands the best chance of reducing the overreach of government. Avoid those that have cult followings who chant mantra's, they are devoid of original thought and are single issue voters.

  • MCJ5060

    Absolutely true. If people will just see through their covert (to some, overt to most) manipulation to understand the one they MOST fear is Paul....hands down.

  • Kathy

    Herman Cain has been slowly gaining popularity as people learn more about him. Conservative media tried to squelch him and keep him second tier because they want Romney. I didn't want Romney last time and I don't now. Perry sounded good until he opened his mouth. Christy never decided to run. I've liked Cain from the beginning and will vote for him.

    • Ole Vet

      Go ahead. You'll play into their hands! Throwing away a conservative vote is another liberal vote NOT nullified. Over and over, we have done just this--voting for a far out candidate (not bright), NOT voting at all (worse!), or falling for the smoke and mirror lies of mealy-mouthed, lying outright socialists, as we did this last election (worst of all!!).

  • Ltpar

    Yes, President Micky Mouse and VP Donald Duck on the People's Party Ticket are looking better every day. I haven't decided yet. Who knows, I might just go wild and vote the Independent Candidate "Goofey?"

  • billy

    Watch who the media bashes and who they give a pass to and you will come to know who they fear could unseat their liberal darling Obama. I will support the most genuine conservative, but whomever our nominee is we must give him/her our full support. Yes, even a RINO is more desirable than another 4 years of Obama and his ambitions to CHANGE our country into his Obamanation.

    Turn Off Your TV- Think For Yourself is excellent advice. If voters of all ages will read "Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television" written by Jerry Mander, published in 1975- 36 years ago- they will be shocked to see why it was possible to elect Obama in 2008. Mander wrote, "...I learned that it is possible to speak through media directly into people's heads and then, like some otherworldly magician, leave images inside that can cause people to do what they might otherwise never have thought to do." His conclusions and assertions have become realities as evidenced by the frantic media coverage of the 2012 presidential candidates. Merely reading pages 23-27 of Chapter 1 will jar the mind, hopefully to awareness of the danger we face- becoming victims of "mental confinement". Take my word for it- this book will remove the "scales" from your eyes.

  • Big PaPa

    Wow some one is waking up U N Agenda 21 is the what of all of this. Ronald Regan's Vice President and President G.H.W. Bush signed on to UN Agenda 21 in 1992, It is the takeover of the USA through enviormental law they have slowly taking away the rights of US citizens to produce food and durable goods. Take away our guns take away our freedom the eleit of both parties have been doing this. Now they are trying to regain control by putting one of there puppets in place from the Republican Party. I pray that Herman Cain is not part of it I'm sure Romney, Huntsman I'm not certain about others I know they were sure trying to push the NJ Gov. on us.

  • Obama Bin Badagin

    Agreed. I came to exactly the same conclusion a few weeks ago. You can be sure who the best candidate is by the fact the media never mentions him despite strong poll numbers. I have never been completely in the Ron Paul camp but I am leaning his way now. The media is almost completely Jew controlled and Ron Paul takes an un-biased position on the Middle East and a dismal view of the Goldman Sachs-Federal Reserve corruption which is also completely Jew controlled.

    THE liberal news and the socialist democratic fools are behind this, as they are behind everything else, including the mass protest against wall street. To confuse and scatter the RIGHT, is what these socialist dogs are doing. THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NEEDS A TRUE AMERICAN THAT WILL STAND UP FOR THE CONSTITUTION AND WILL NOT BEND AT ALL . THESE thugs need to be dragged out of the white house now! Anyone that runs for President has to be as described above, without question. I don't see anyone that fits that order, from either side. Just because there's a republican and democratic party, doesn't mean that one or the other should be chosen, that's B S ! Nearly all the members - from both sides, are a bunch of hoodlums, for even if you don't believe in the present socialist democratic left and their anti-American agenda, you're part of it if you sit on your hands. It's simple as that.

  • Rudloph

    I think "down and dirty" news about candidates and what they say are vital. Over time from newspaper articles, good and bad, they are essential for voters to get a feel for candidates from news. This should fluctuate over time from bits and pieces of quotes, etc. It is obvious that some news papers stack the deck so it is important for publicity that is a mixed bag. For those of us who are americans, it is lucky that we only have to compare candidates from two parties. Countries with a bunch of different political parties can be a mad house.

    Ron Paul is the only true coservative and stands up for the constitution. The big boys, the Bilderberg group, the TriLateral Group and the Council on Foreign Relations want Rick Perry or Herman Cain as they are part of the Big Boy Group. I am amazed how Political Correct these Republicans are that don't know the facts. I use to think that Fox News was pretty straight . but they are more and more siding with the big boys. 80 members of congress and the Senate belong to the Communist party and I'll bet 2 % of the American people don't even know it. Our government run school system is taught by Liberals Socialist and Communist. You all better pray the right man gets elected. If he isn't part of the Big Boy Group , He will probably get assasinated like John and Robert Kennedy and almost Ronald Reagan because they didn't follow the agenda. I'll bet 90 % of Americans didn't even know that the Federal Reserve is illegal. Have a great day while you can. It may be gone very shortly.

    Your article is actually quite intuitive and accurate. I used to work for NBC News. It was openly biased then but today...whoa@!
    I broadcast everyday for an hour to 38 nations on 5 continents with a conservative message on Christian Broadcasting. I call a spade a spade as few do. I do appreciate most of what I have read on Godfather Politics. I recall hearing about this obama guy in Chicago. I wondered who the heck he was, and what, if anything he'd done. Then I saw articles. hmmmm. I'm older than most of you and I have a genius IQ and one heck of a memory. To quote Seinfeld....once I see or hear it, "It's in the safe". I believe it was 1949 and one or more of Life or The Saturday Evening Post (magazines) which featured a surreal artistic portrait of this Mao tse Tung...with the subscript: "He's NOT a communist. He's an "Agrarian Reformer". Can we all say "Right!" ??

    A similar cover appeared in 1959 featuring the latest "non-communist, Agrarian Reformer"...a Fidel Castro. We bought the bull again. The reality was that Mao went to Moscow in the 1920s to study communism, fomenting street riots, and so forth at The Lenin Institute. Even during WWII, when his forces weren't fighting the Japanese invaders, they were fighting the Chinese Nationalists. We knew it. 60 million dead Chinese later, he had invoked communism because the people either embraced it or died. Gee, do you think our media played ANY ROLE in those sweeping, devastating communist victories while we, the world's best armed super power looked the other way?

    Well, I believe it was February or March of 2007 when I heard the TV news in passing talking about this unknown black dude from Chicago again. when it ended I walked in and announced to my wife: "It's happened again. The media has selected our next President, and he's black". I'm sorry, but I don't think ANY thinking person would dispute this.

    Now, how could this unknown, inexperienced, done-nothing, come from nowhere, run nothing but his mouth as a street organizer (show me a street organizer anywhere who is NOT a socialist or communist....you could waste your life looking for one...trust me) and who certainly never ran a business, commanded employees, or even held a legitimate job not somehow paid for by taxpayers...hope to overthrow the likes of the Queen of Socialism...the "annointed one" Hilllary Rodham?

    I will continue this later. Bill

  • http://www.houroftruthandintegrity.com William Peterseim

    Continuing for my earlier post:

    It's because Barack is le puppet, and George Soros the supreme puppet master....with infinite bucks ($ 15 billion of them) able to fund anyone and anything. Please understand how imperative it was to defeat Hillary and the Republicans. ONLY a black or, in this case 1/2 black candidate, as President, could pull off the utter destruction of The United States as we know it; to so thoroughly trash The Constitution including going after the Bill of Rights. He has committed one impeachable offense after another and if you could get the corrupted Supreme Court to ever even HEAR the arguments that he is unqualified to hold the office, he'd be executed for treason....IF.....and here's the key.....IF he were WHITE. ( So Hillary couldn't have pulled off near as much as Barack and gotten away with it. Congress is also "on record" as saying that they will NOT impeach Obama out of fear of a black uprising. I submit that if anything renews racial hatred in America, think of how whites will feel towards blacks if we lose this great Republic over fear of their rioting if we are so non-PC as to actually want to remove a communist pretender to the throne actively working to destroy our nation)

    If you weren't listening, weeks ago the Congressional Black Caucus confirmed what I've been saying openly on my program for months: They literally HATE what Barack has done to the black community. their unemployment is double that in the white community. They openly stated that IF IF he were a while Republican, they'd have already had his you know what. BUT, BECAUSE he is Black, they stated that they WON'T go after him ONLY because that would provide help to his detractors, his enemies, you know...Patriots who want to preserve our nation. So, In reading through these blogs, I've seen many references to whites, Ron Paul, being racist. I submit to you that there are no greater PRACTICING racists in America than most of the elected black politicians, actors, and so forth including the "new" Black Panthers who our Prez proudly marched with during his campaign but has since scrubbed the photos from the Internet (but not before they were captured).

    I have had many direct conversations with black people. I warned many of them during his campaign with this: "I know how important it is for you to get a black man or woman into the Presidency. I'm just suggesting that you spend a bit more time in your SELECTION of who that might be. You have a number of good, qualified potential candidates with vastly more knowledge and experience on all things economic and military than Barack Obama. I have spoken with some of them. And, they have a private sector record to run on and they have ethics, work ethics, American ethics. So, I ask, why aren't you nominating them? An Alan Keyes, for instance; Condelessa Rice. Infinitely more principled, knowledgable, and experienced than This Barack character. My concern is, if he turns out to be what I fear he will (and during his campaign they didn't like my repeated comparisons of Barack with Adolf....and most didn't start drawing those comparisons until after he was elected) again, my fear is that if he turns out as I suspect he will, the next black man who has a shot at getting close to The White House will be running from the dogs in the front yard where he jumped the fence."

    My comments have sadly been vindicated by his performance. I have told several other blacks recently that they" have a serious problem in that, starting during the campaign and continuing to this day, ANYONE who dares question any of Barack's socialist and communist policies and proposals is immediately branded a racist." I continue, "It's NOT a racist position to call him or anyone else out on these issues. He is putting into effect what his mentors Saul Alinsky and others proposed. Read the piece by a former classmate who met the young radical "violent revolutionary" Barack Obama in college when he wanted to violently overthrow our government to impose communist rule. This is real, folks." So, I conclude with:

    "I would say the same things in the same manner if it were a white guy trashing this nation and our Constitution. And, you blacks need to remember one critical thing." (This always gets their attention, as they ask what that is)

    "He's only 1/2 black. Remember, he's 1/2 white. Yeah, we got to claim part of him. So, here's my proposal: You do what you want with his black half. I only hate and want to hang his White Half."

    That comment has sent young black men literally slowly to the floor in hysterical laughter. Black women listening have put their heads down on the counter (these were tellers in a bank) and shook laughing. It's a hard point to argue and diffuses a lot of hostility.

  • william Peterseim

    Continuing from earlier text:

    Referencing this fine article, allow me to add this: I have watched and read and listened to Ron Paul over the years, probably not to the degree I, or anyone really should, to fully grasp "where he's at". And, I met Mitt Romney who refused to be interviewed at an area event here in Florida with Marco Rubio before the election. I'm old enough that I met and had a one-on-one with a fellow you might've heard of: Ronald Reagan. What amazes me is this: What is WRONG with most candidates? What GIVES with their selection of Campaign Managers?

    McCain was certainly not my best choice. Too comfy with the supreme liberal from Mass, now deceased. Sarah, though somewhat inexperienced, was INFINITELY MORE experienced than the village idiot missing from Kenya. But, the MEDIA would NEVER allow you to come to such conclusion, if you watched them.

    I always felt bad that I never got to meet McCain's campaign manager. I guess that's because, being a FIFTH GRADER he had to be in bed by 8. Is it pathetic that 2 weeks after the election, McCain's crew was still openly inquiring as to what a Facebook was?"

    How is it we don't really know, by now, where the lastest fad...Herman Cain....stands on the 2nd Amendment?

    How did a guy getting my attention...the Texas Governor...get that far along openly embracing AND DEFENDING IN NATIONAL DEBATE educating illegal immigrants for $ 22,000 a year LESS than any of my 3 AMERICAN BORN CITIZEN kids would have to pay to go to his colleges and universities? Is he SO OUT OF TOUCH with the mood in America, that he sees nothing wrong with giving the store away to people who should not be here to begin with? And, are you folks NUTS to call what I just said "racist"????? I don't care WHO they are, WHAT CULTURE, what NATIONALITY, whether they drink dark beer or stick a lemon in it... THEY DON'T BELONG HERE LEGALLY. They are bankrupting this nation. We are terminally STUPID for letting them do it. No other nation in history did so. And, since I am a historian....here's a big clue: NO OTHER NATION in recorded history long SURVIVED an onslaught on their borders, a NON-military invasion by foreign cultures, religions, practices, standards, languages. They either stopped it, or they were destroyed in short order FROM WITHIN. FACT. You don't have to like it, but it's true. Here's another: no nation long survived multi-language//culturalism either.

      Response: Clearly you were NOT paying attention! No one embraced anything of the sort!

      Perry was in NO WAY defending any such thing! It's a FEDERAL MANDATE that states educate children of illegal aliens. You don't like it, take it up with the federal govt!

      As far as allowing children of illegal aliens to pay ... YES, THEY HAVE TO PAY (NOT the residents of Texas or any other state) instate tuition rated as long as they've graduated from an approved Texas high school, AND ARE SEEKING US CITIZENSHIP!

      And you know what else? There are THIRTEEN (13) other states that do the SAME THING. Rhode Island being the most recent.

      " Is he SO OUT OF TOUCH with the mood in America, that he sees nothing wrong with giving the store away to people who should not be here to begin with? "

      Response: Perhaps YOU are out of touch with reality!

      In a recent interview Perry said ( and I quote!)

      "The federal DREAM Act is an amnesty bill, and I strongly oppose amnesty. The Texas educational residency bill was vastly different.

      "Because the federal government has failed in its basic duty to protect our borders, states are forced to deal with illegal immigrant issues.

      "In Texas, we had to deal with the children of illegal immigrants residing in our state and attending our schools, as the federal government requires states to educate these children through the public school system. Lawmakers in Texas – indisputably one of the most conservative states in America – were virtually unanimous in their decision.

      "The [Texas STATE] LEGISLATURE determined the payment of in-state college tuition is available to all students who have lived in Texas for at least three years and graduated from a public high school. If you meet those requirements, you pay in-state tuition, whether you relocated from Oklahoma, Idaho, Canada or Mexico. The only difference is that Texas residents who aren’t documented must be on the path to pursue U.S. citizenship to be allowed to pay in-state tuition."

      " I don't care WHO they are, WHAT CULTURE, what NATIONALITY, whether they drink dark beer or stick a lemon in it... THEY DON'T BELONG HERE LEGALLY. They are bankrupting this nation. We are terminally STUPID for letting them do it. No other nation in history did so. And, since I am a historian....here's a big clue: NO OTHER NATION in recorded history long SURVIVED an onslaught on their borders, a NON-military invasion by foreign cultures, religions, practices, standards, languages. They either stopped it, or they were destroyed in short order FROM WITHIN. FACT. You don't have to like it, but it's true. Here's another: no nation long survived multi-language//culturalism either.

      Response: Most people would agree, but YOU need to get in touch with REALITY!

      And I would STRONGLY URGE you to take 17 minutes out of your misinformed life, and get a bit of an education!

    Ladies and Gentleman, I've followed your blogs and realized once again that Americans are truly living in the Land of the Free. Now we must show the world that we are also living in the Home of the Brave. Follow your instincts. Just like your inalienable rights, these are God given too. Go to the polls and show Mr. Obama the real Americans. When the Kremlin gets the message they'll realize their mistake. They backed the wrong horse. GBA!!

      Actually, that is an insult to a horse, unless you are just talking about the part under the tail !!!

    The Media can save there breath where I am concerned. I am voting for Ron Paul. He has already proven himself to be a true red,white, & blue Constitutionalist. And I love the fact that he has already begun breaking down the NWO/NAU elite's plans by finally getting that audit of the Federal Reserve. He has been pushing for it for 30 years now. It just goes to show how really dedicated and persistent he is. I think Dr. Paul could do wonders to restore America's Sovereign roots.

    Ron. Paul . . . the best thing that could happen to American in 2012.

    I don't know who the pollsters actually talk to other than each other, however I can tell you three that I have no intention of voting for.....Romney , Perry and Paul. I'll vote for them if either one makes it and I have no other choice in November. I'm interested in Bauchman, but she has to start answering the questions posed to her, she's not doing that now. I like what I hear from Cain. I need to hear more from Gingrich and Santorium. Those are my four I need to hear from. I truly don't appreciate some pundit telling me who or how to vote. I'm intently listening to what is said, I'm looking for someone that is willing to restore the constitution, adhere to our Founders priciples and LEAD. What a thought, to have a President that is a leader as well.

    Ron Paul is his worse enemy! Presidential Candidate Ron Paul (R-TX) said Iran should be armed with nuclear weapons, and America should not defend Israel, even if Iran annihilates Jews. Ron Paul was one of only 6 Congressmen who voted "NO" in a 407-6 vote on H.Res 268 to help Israel last month, when 13 liberal Democrats voted "PRESENT."
    Ahmadinejad the dictator Ron Paul wants to arm with nuclear weapons? Seriously? If it wasn't bad enough when Ron Paul promoted marijuana and homosexualized the military, Ron Paul wants nukes for Muslim terrorists who are already launching Rockets now killing Jews? Let's call Ron Paul's office today at (202) 225-2831, and demand he retract his implied support for Iran's nuclear destruction of Israel.

    • Louis

      Bill,
      Surely you don't believe this dribble you pronounce? Ron Paul stands for no such nonsense. You are swallowing the media's lies and distortion. Ron Paul will not force our brand of government upon any other and will not trouble himself or involve the american people into the affairs of other countries. That is totally different than "wanting" Iran to have nuclear weapons. What would you do as president? to stop Iran from having WMD? Invade them. Put sanctions upon them which in turn makes the citizens of that country suffer so much? Why do that. Perhaps we and our presidents should concern ourselves with the constitution and mind our own business and not make enemies of country's whose goal it is to acquire nuclear weapons. Lets spend all those trillions of dollars abroad on our own people and our own defense..... like Paul suggests. Is this really a bad idea?

  • Phil

    You bring up a good point about polls. I recieved a call from Regan's son about a year or so ago asking if I approved of the flat tax being proposed. He wanted straight yes or now answers. I tried to answer by undecided. I still not sure about itt, even after reading the proposal, I'm still undecided. I was hung up on because I wouldn't respond in their favor. I don't put a great deal of stock in polls.

  • William Peterseim

    continuing from earlier text:

    I certainly don't advocate candidates betraying their conscience and pulling a Bill Clinton, though it certainly worked on a "dumbed down American electorate", didn't it? Clinton was notorious for telling each crowd JUST what THEY wanted to hear, even if it directly conflicted with his beliefs and plans and even the last crowd he addressed two chicken sandwiches back.

    What I am saying is that, IF you are a REAL Conservative and SERIOUS candidate, WHY DON'T YOU EITHER KNOW by this stage of the game, or HIRE someone with something between his or her ears besides WAX to understand the REAL ISSUES, what is vital to this nation and its preservation, and the pulse of mainstream, conservative America. Why do you even get to your first debate before discovering that your position is untenable and you are, hence, viewed with suspicion if not labeled an idiot?

    While much of what Ron Paul espouses I can concur with, TOTAL isolation, in the face of patently evil empires and would-be empires, is just plain STUPID and has NEVER WORKED in our history. We've ended up allowing evil to take hold, grow unfettered and finally get to the point that we HAD to intervene and then, on a grand scale. To utilize a very old quote, Ron: "Those who refuse to learn from history are condemned to repeat it."

    Further, to the references by some blogger above who said he's 200 years out of step, I would humbly disagree. The Constitution was NEVER intended by its authors to "a living document" subject to whimsical contemporary alterations, especially by a Judicial Oligarchy into which we have largely descended by having failed to heed to warnings of our Second President John Adams who clearly stated that our judiciary would ONLY work IF we insisted upon appointing ONLY men of GOD, and moral integrity. Look at the literal jokes we've had since The infamous Warren Court. Adams warned that, "if we failed to keep to those standards, our nation would decline into a judicial oligarchy."

    Jefferson, our 3rd President also correctly summed up the original intent and priorities of the Founding Fathers when he asserted that, in terms of power and authority, the Congress should have the greatest say OVER DETERMINING WHAT IS, in the end, CONSTITUTIONAL. The President would be next and....the LEAST important in these decisions, would be the Supreme Court...the Judiciary. whoa! Bet you never heard or read that! Why do you suppose he would so assert especially since our corrupted public schools have long taught "all power on Constitutional issues to the judiciary"?

    Because, and it should be rather clear: A) Congress is ELECTED. And, they consist of 2 bodies of law makers: ultimately 535 elected officals (more than originally) due to expansion and addition of states. B) The President next because, again, he was ELECTED...originally by the Congress, then later by the people.,.but still ELECTED. And C) the judiciary is to have been the LEAST listened to in Constitutional matters because these people are NOT elected by anyone. and, this is a nation to be OF, BY. and FOR the PEOPLE,....not as presently practiced by our current dictator who consistently bypasses Congress when they disagree, and uses his race to prevent that same body from impeaching him for doing so. The judiciary....all federal judges including the Supreme Court are, in the end, political appointees, often "hacks" often barely qualified, and, in the case of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in Mexifornia, UN-American. Therefore, the forefathers intended they have the LEAST "say" in these issues of the Constitution. What has transpired puts me in mind of the Bible and God's Word, verses the Satanic Bible and Satan's way of doing things.

    The Satanic Bible was easy to write. Its authors simply reversed or inverted everything in God's Word, the Holy Bible. If the Bible says to DO this, the Satanic Bible says to NOT do that. And vice versa. This spills over into all kinds of things.

    In Genesis, God gave man "dominion over" the animals first, and the plants beneath them. When man gets addicted to substances, except in the case of gluttony, he has allowed Satan to turn things upside down and you have man on the bottom in bondage to a plant on top...the opposite of God's way. I could make references to some environmentalists who worship mother earth and hug trees and who would shut down our industry, turn out our lights, and have us back to walking.....(when we now know we have the largest oil reserves in the world....about 40%, NOT what Obama recently lied about again, saying we have but 2%....total fabrication spoken to an uninformed public. But then, he also told a group of veterans about his Dad returning from serving in WWII ...... which had to be SOME kind of record as his Dad was FIVE FREAKING YEARS OLD WHEN IT ENDED.....but who checks?_) more later

  • William Peterseim

    continuing from earlier....my extended rant....sorry to take so much space''

    George W, in one of his dumbest remarks said on immigration, "Of course, no one is proposing sending 12 million illegal aliens back". WHY NOT? you idiot. They came here without our help. Here's a history lesson for you:

    When the Depression was just starting and Herbert Hoover was still President, he expelled approximately 2-3 million Mexicans to create jobs for AMERICANS. He was a Republican. 16 years later, DEMOCRAT President Harry Truman expelled nearly 5 million Mexicans to create jobs for returning WWII AMERICAN Veterans. And then, barely 5-6 years later, Republican and very popular war hero President Dwight D Eisenhower expelled 12.....that's right George, count them.... 12 MILLION MEXICANS to create jobs for WWII and returning Korean War veterans. And, he is the President who created the Interstate Highway system BUT it wasn't built when he found a way with those old primitive early 50's cars and trucks and buses to export 12 million Mexicans. and, you know what? None of these presidents were called "RACISTS". But what they were called was "Patriotic" and willing to put AMERICA and AMERICANS first@@@##!!!!!!!

    Folks, at the peak of The Great Depression, we briefly hit 28% unemployment. 4 months ago, the most recent statistics revealed that Americans, not Mexicans....AMERICANs under the age of 30, without college degrees....those folks who, historically can only qualify for "entry level unskilled jobs"...you know, the ones currently TAKEN by Mexicans, have a current unemployment rate of 28% !!!!! For them, at least, it IS THE GREAT DEPRESSION revisited. So, you might wonder what the unemployment rate is in Mexico. It must be super high, through the roof, for them to be coming here seeking employment, right? (or freebies).

    It's 2%. That's right a stinking 2%. Our "official" and totally bogus unemployment rate is 9.6%...bogus because in the calculation, people like me, unemployed for 2 1/2 years, still looking, but not ON unemployment, don't COUNT. Reality lies somewhere between 14-23% depending upon various factors. Mexico has 2% unemployment because they DON'T have "safety net" freebies. The average Mexican holds down 1-3 jobs and runs a little business, often out of their home, on the side because : no welfare, food stamps, unemployment, housing subsidy, free medical or free education. Come here, and get it all AND more if you keep breeding.

    To finally wrap this thesis, with my apology for the length: referring back to the original subject....I have openly concluded on my program and in speeches, something I never thought I would.....giving a semblance of credit to Adolf Hitler. Whoa, you say. Yes, on this one point. By comparison to our recent Administrations and Congress and certainly this President, he was infinitely more HONEST with the people when it came to labeling their "information". He established "The MINISTRY OF PROPAGANDA". and named Joself Goebbels as "Minister of Propaganda". Everyone SHOULD know what propaganda is. So, he correctly labeled the blatant lies he put forth to his people, as just that...propaganda. We don't. We call our propaganda for the left: "NIGHTLY NEWS" and show it on ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN where the unsuspecting tune in expecting truth, and receive their daily dose of biased propaganda.

  • Michael F Douglas

  • invest

    I wouldn't mind seeing a ROMNEY/CAIN OR PERRY/CAIN TICKET FOR 2012

  • William Peterseim

    Start of the set: Your article is actually quite intuitive and accurate. I used to work for NBC News. It was openly biased then but today...whoa@!
    I broadcast everyday for an hour to 38 nations on 5 continents with a conservative message on Christian Broadcasting. I call a spade a spade as few do. I do appreciate most of what I have read on Godfather Politics. I recall hearing about this obama guy in Chicago. I wondered who the heck he was, and what, if anything he'd done. Then I saw articles. hmmmm. I'm older than most of you and I have a genius IQ and one heck of a memory. To quote Seinfeld....once I see or hear it, "It's in the safe". I believe it was 1949 and one or more of Life or The Saturday Evening Post (magazines) which featured a surreal artistic portrait of this Mao tse Tung...with the subscript: "He's NOT a communist. He's an "Agrarian Reformer". Can we all say "Right!" ??

    A similar cover appeared in 1959 featuring the latest "non-communist, Agrarian Reformer"...a Fidel Castro. We bought the bull again. The reality was that Mao went to Moscow in the 1920s to study communism, fomenting street riots, and so forth at The Lenin Institute. Even during WWII, when his forces weren't fighting the Japanese invaders, they were fighting the Chinese Nationalists. We knew it. 60 million dead Chinese later, he had invoked communism because the people either embraced it or died. Gee, do you think our media played ANY ROLE in those sweeping, devastating communist victories while we, the world's best armed super power looked the other way?

    Well, I believe it was February or March of 2007 when I heard the TV news in passing talking about this unknown black dude from Chicago again. when it ended I walked in and announced to my wife: "It's happened again. The media has selected our next President, and he's black". I'm sorry, but I don't think ANY thinking person would dispute this.

    Now, how could this unknown, inexperienced, done-nothing, come from nowhere, run nothing but his mouth as a street organizer (show me a street organizer anywhere who is NOT a socialist or communist....you could waste your life looking for one...trust me) and who certainly never ran a business, commanded employees, or even held a legitimate job not somehow paid for by taxpayers...hope to overthrow the likes of the Queen of Socialism...the "annointed one" Hilllary Rodham?

    It's because Barack is le puppet, and George Soros the supreme puppet master....with infinite bucks ($ 15 billion of them) able to fund anyone and anything. Please understand how imperative it was to defeat Hillary and the Republicans. ONLY a black or, in this case 1/2 black candidate, as President, could pull off the utter destruction of The United States as we know it; to so thoroughly trash The Constitution including going after the Bill of Rights. He has committed one impeachable offense after another and if you could get the corrupted Supreme Court to ever even HEAR the arguments that he is unqualified to hold the office, he'd be executed for treason....IF.....and here's the key.....IF he were WHITE. ( So Hillary couldn't have pulled off near as much as Barack and gotten away with it. Congress is also "on record" as saying that they will NOT impeach Obama out of fear of a black uprising. I submit that if anything renews racial hatred in America, think of how whites will feel towards blacks if we lose this great Republic over fear of their rioting if we are so non-PC as to actually want to remove a communist pretender to the throne actively working to destroy our nation)

  • William Peterseim

    If you weren't listening, weeks ago the Congressional Black Caucus confirmed what I've been saying openly on my program for months: They literally HATE what Barack has done to the black community. their unemployment is double that in the white community. They openly stated that IF IF he were a while Republican, they'd have already had his you know what. BUT, BECAUSE he is Black, they stated that they WON'T go after him ONLY because that would provide help to his detractors, his enemies, you know...Patriots who want to preserve our nation. So, In reading through these blogs, I've seen many references to whites, Ron Paul, being racist. I submit to you that there are no greater PRACTICING racists in America than most of the elected black politicians, actors, and so forth including the "new" Black Panthers who our Prez proudly marched with during his campaign but has since scrubbed the photos from the Internet (but not before they were captured).

    I have had many direct conversations with black people. I warned many of them during his campaign with this: "I know how important it is for you to get a black man or woman into the Presidency. I'm just suggesting that you spend a bit more time in your SELECTION of who that might be. You have a number of good, qualified potential candidates with vastly more knowledge and experience on all things economic and military than Barack Obama. I have spoken with some of them. And, they have a private sector record to run on and they have ethics, work ethics, American ethics. So, I ask, why aren't you nominating them? An Alan Keyes, for instance; Condelessa Rice. Infinitely more principled, knowledgable, and experienced than This Barack character. My concern is, if he turns out to be what I fear he will (and during his campaign they didn't like my repeated comparisons of Barack with Adolf....and most didn't start drawing those comparisons until after he was elected) again, my fear is that if he turns out as I suspect he will, the next black man who has a shot at getting close to The White House will be running from the dogs in the front yard where he jumped the fence."

    My comments have sadly been vindicated by his performance. I have told several other blacks recently that they" have a serious problem in that, starting during the campaign and continuing to this day, ANYONE who dares question any of Barack's socialist and communist policies and proposals is immediately branded a racist." I continue, "It's NOT a racist position to call him or anyone else out on these issues. He is putting into effect what his mentors Saul Alinsky and others proposed. Read the piece by a former classmate who met the young radical "violent revolutionary" Barack Obama in college when he wanted to violently overthrow our government to impose communist rule. This is real, folks." So, I conclude with:

    "I would say the same things in the same manner if it were a white guy trashing this nation and our Constitution. And, you blacks need to remember one critical thing." (This always gets their attention, as they ask what that is)

    "He's only 1/2 black. Remember, he's 1/2 white. Yeah, we got to claim part of him. So, here's my proposal: You do what you want with his black half. I only hate and want to hang his White Half."

    That comment has sent young black men literally slowly to the floor in hysterical laughter. Black women listening have put their heads down on the counter (these were tellers in a bank) and shook laughing. It's a hard point to argue and diffuses a lot of hostility.

  • Mike

    I had to laugh recently when O'Reilly had him on his show and pretty much discounted anything Cain said and rudely interrupted him several times. The media, including Fox think they know everything and they are just as out of touch as the politicians are. They want to jump on a frontrunners bandwagon and predict who will win and the election is still over a year away. They were saying for weeks it was between Romney and Perry, but guess what happened along the way. Cain has zoomed right on by because he is a man of the people and not some RINO saying flowery words.

    Who do we want the Media to be? Every time I watch an actor or actress parrot some script writer's dunderheaded lunacy I get both a good cackle and pause to contemplate the legitimacy of the actor/actress involved. How does Hollywood go so completely from a bastion of Character (John Wayne, James Stewart) to a cesspool of character's (Damon, Freeman, Sarandon) in such a short time? It seems even the Main Line News aspires to the tank. Turn-em off. Complain. When these privileged, painted and shallow characters can no longer luxuriate on our dime perhaps, just maybe perhaps a few of them will learn that actions have consequences. For Hollywood that will be when "Burlap" is back in style!

    Put the blame where the blame belongs: Democrats, liberals, lefties, losers and those who want everything free and hate work!

  • A Patriot

    Ron Paul has ZERO chance of beating Obama. He has ZERO charisma, and ZERO capability to generate voter passion. His most avid supporter is the Democratic National Committee that knows if he is the candidate, they can destroy him easily with the media and hold onto the White House. The GOP needs to run a couple of men of unimpeachable honor and integrity, oops, sorry, the only one I can think of was crucified 2,000 years ago. So, get a man that can inflame voter passion against Obummer, not some dull old man whining about the Federal Reserve with a totally impossible platform to turn our clocks back 200 years.

    I'll be voting for ABO. Anybody but Obama! If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you aren't a racist, you need to vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you're not an idiot! Seriously, we need to look closley at each of the candidates and do our OWN research on them, and STOP listening to and reading what the liberal & very biased lamestream media is spewing. They want to brainwash us so we'll nominate someone they want us to nominate and who they think will have a more difficult time defeating Obama. There are also columnists, politicians, etc. who favor one candidate over the others who want to sway others to also support their favorite candidate, which is also a type of brainwashing in my opinion. Think for yourself, do the research yourself then make your decision based on that, not on who someone else is pushing.

      I think you have the winning formula. Let's get that on a placard and place one in every yard.

    Its' true!! And whenever I happen mention that the NY Times was most responsible for McCain being declared the Republican Candidate in 2008 - I get absolutely blank stares in return - by both Republicans and Independents.

    Not only was the NY Times deeply involved in the Republican candidacy, but a large number of Democrates registered as Republicans to influence the outcome. This next election will be worse because there will be no choice of who the Dummycrats nominee will be - so why not register as a Republican and pick a "loser" and in the end vote for Obummer? Gee, then it will appear as if the Dummycrats, Independents AND Republicans, overwhelmingly, elected BHO!!!

    As our election process has evolved I doubt the creators of the system ever suspected it would be "used" as it was in 2008 or as I believe it will be in the upcoming elections in 2012. I'd like to think steps will be taken to prevent this sort of thing from happening again, but doubt there will be an honest effort to make things "right" in time.

    As a current Independent, I left the Republican party the minute McCain was declared their candidate in 2008. Until the party prevents RINO's from running on the ticket, I'll remain an Independent!

    The far left, Socialist, Communist and bleeding hearts have hijacked the Democratic party and now they're working on the Republican party.

    BE PREPARED . . .

  • Jay isbell

    I really do think the author of this piece if missing something very basic. It is NOT the media per se picking out candidate. It is that "our" candidate, when seen in actual debate, clearly perhaps for the 1st time, does not in fact come across nearly as well then previously thought. Perry is the perfect example--he did NOT impress the way voters thought he might. No mystery, no media hype or detraction involved.

    • W Smith

      Point very well taken. But how would Coolidge have fared? Maybe a bit retiring? FDR perhaps more than a bit full of himself? I would love to see a real debate between the candidates with real debate rules. The Federalist papers indicate our founders were masters but how would even they fare before today's very low standards? At the founding of our country those involved understood partisan disciplines and tendencies. They wrote of them extensively. They set a course to save us from ourselves. It seems we can no longer be saved.
      Of Gov. Perry I was very surprised at his failings. It seems many others were not. In any case though our final candidate may not be Sainted; that candidate is to be the hope of our nation. I hope.

  • Sapphira Sez

    First, Ron Paul is an idiot to think he (as President) could allow Iran et. al, to proliferate nuclear weapons and that we would not be wiped off the map and left with a total wasteland. Get real! Those people are taught, actively TAUGHT from their infancy to hate the Evil Americans (the Great Satan) and they will do all in their power (think nuclear) to eliminate us from the same earth that they walk on. And speaking of infancy, Ron Paul believes in abortion!! Right there is enough to cause me to write in another candidate! Oh, yes, he says it is "the woman's right to choose", but what about the baby who gets chopped up and flushed down the commode?? What choice did he/she get? The woman needs to do her choosing before she gets pregnant, and if it's a case of rape, then there are people lined up to adopt. There is no reason good enough to murder these most innocent babies.

    • awakenow

      Sapphira ... just had to respond and correct you on two things.

      First, if you truly believe that with Iran getting nukes we would be "wiped off the map and left with a total wasteland" you are, quite simply, an idiot of enormous proportions. Our nation has considerable nuclear weapon anti-ballistic capability and if Iran were so foolish as to actually lob even one in our direction, it would be Iran itself that would become a "total wasteland" ... and that is a fact.

      In addition, Israel is also quite prepared in the anti-ballistic arena with their own naval subs being parked offshore Iran since last summer, ready to take out any foolish attempt by Iran before one of their nukes were to even leave Iranian airspace ... as well as Israel possessing some 200 nukes themselves.

      Second, Ron Paul is pro-life and has come out and said so ... clearly. As a former practicing OB/GYN, Dr. Ron Paul has helped bring some 4,000 new lives into this world and he truly respects the sanctity of life and he has stated that he has witnessed the horrors of abortion.

      Please try to educate yourself before you make comments which display your ignorance regarding man. Here's a good place to start:
      Ron Paul 2012. com.

      • Warthog0

        Iran would be hard pressed selling toxic oil....oh wait we would be a seller?

    • C.Davis

      When God's through with Ananias he'll deal with your lying butt!
      Ron Paul has never performed an abortion. He rightly cites the constitution in stating that it is a states rights issue,
      Ron Paul was among the first to sign the Susan B. Anthony petition pledging to not appoint pro abortion cabinet members among other things.
      Either you're the real idiot or you're a shill engaging in character assasination. In either case you should save yourself the embarassment.

  • http://lamebrained-ideas.blogspot.com C.Davis

    It's a shame most voters couldn't find their behinds with both hands, for if they could they would figure out that there's only one candidate on the slate who'se actions have consistently mirrored their rhetoric. Dr. Ron Paul, and anyone can see that the others are bending over backwards trying to be Ron Paul for long enough to get elected. Only problem is, which of these weak sisters served their country honorably in the military? Which ones have never voted to raise taxes or for anything constitutionally dubious? Did this person ever work for the federal reserve or its collection agency, the IRS?
    No, it's sad that most video heads are conditioned to get behind a slick suit with a CONvincing spiel and a pocket full of corporate grift.
    If we can't get Ron Paul elected, the conversion to communism through incrementalism will be a fait accompli, and then all these idiots will not have to worry about whom to vote for,our premier will be chosen by the supreme soviet, and the dream of our founders' will forever be relegated to the scrap heap of history, safely (for the slavers) marked down as a bad job, never again to be a beacon to those who crave liberty. The dank darkness over Mordor will thicken to impenatrability. Humanity will succumb tothe forces of extinction, all planned so that those who consider themselves more worthy can inherit our blue jewel. Go ahead, laugh. You may as well enjoy some mirth while you can.
    As for me, I am sending Ron Paul the measly pittance I can to make my last best hope a reality.

    • W Smith

      An appeal.......I am old enough to have seen Ron Paul over many campaign seasons. He cannot win. His son Rand may well be the Paul who can bring it all home for you as well as the nation. Ron is indispensable but he is a role player. A Representative of Texas. Rand has national potential from his Senate seat in Kentucky. Please do not engage in a scorched earth partisan effort that could get Barry re-elected. From that end we would all be without a place to call home. Personally my favorite candidate would be myself but I would probably have to lobby hard to win my mothers vote. Needless to say though politics is in my blood it has been in my best interest to seek employment elsewhere. Our choices may be limited and uncomfortable in ways but that discomfort must be measured. I hope we can both support a hope likened to a shared change that will deliver us from this contemporary evil.

  • mimireco

    I hope Herman Cain gets more support. This guy is for real. He loves America and he is old enough to have the wisdom needed.

  • Neal

    I was impressed somewhat with Cain earlier. He was very convinceing weeks ago when he flatly stated he would not put a muslim on his staff, nor would he ever appoint a muslim to the US Supreme Court! He cited several reasons why!
    Then a couple weeks later, he did a 180 flip flop!! Of course he would invite muslims to be on his staff, and of course he would consider appointing a muslim to the Supreme Court!! THAT took his name off my plate.

    • Warthog0

      The fact that he would invite or entertain Greenspan as a viable candidate for a post shut the door. And also, his ties with the Federal Reserve.

  • lusia

    It will be the right Republican President elected! Midea shouldn't worry about!

  • jim

    The media did the very same thing to give us Bob Dole, Have you forgotten that?
    I worry that Perry bows to the Hispanic vote in Texas and thus is weak on Illeagel Imigration.
    I like Cain, BUT, he flopped on Islam (that poses the biggest long term threat).
    Paul is a strict Constitutionalist, but a poor common sense-ist (?) (that's funny)
    Bachmann is toast, the rest have single interest emphists.
    Except for Newt, who is the smartest,by far, but has been damaged by the media.
    Unless Someone rises out of the pack with great strength, It's Romney.

    • W Smith

      Though not my first choice Romney seems a solid choice. He has promised conservatives to the bench and that really is what it is all about. I can't imagine living in a Liberal backwater like Massachusetts but if I did Mitt would have been the second coming. From what I see and hear the Northeast isn't fit for much except deep sea fishing. Maybe I'm being a bit to harsh. There are lots of great restaurants around the Chesapeake Bay. Fishing and eating not so bad after all. But Democrat?

  • No One

    Sure, the so called main stream media is no such thing!

    But nothing more than propaganda. With their agendas.

    With the main purpose of influencing the populations opinions there by directing their actions.

    Or human cattle.

    Which is how these elitist and politicians view the population in general.

  • Jere Brock

    The leftist media have been doing this for years now. We should NEVER LISTEN TO THEM...!!! Their game is to pick the liberal that they can support and to give as much time to the ":conservative" candidate on the other side that the liberal guy could beat. This whole "airtime" issue by the major news networks is a manipulated way to get the two candidates that they want to face each other and sway the election. The aren't fooling any person with an IQ above 90 about what they are trying to accomplish with their "coverage" of the candidate field.

  • JulianBF

    The "media" who told us only the good about Obama which was very little have shown us that we can only rely on them for information supporting thier views. If there is any hope for this country people need to think for themselves and realize that what they hear in the news is at best meaningless, at worst, well they did convince many that Obama was the messiah. The U.S. could use a fourth estate, you know the facts mam only the facts. I wish they would revoke the credentials of the so called investigative reporters that to date can still not answer a simple question, 'why is it no one went to school with Obama?'.

  • librtyship

    The first time I heard Herman Cain speak I could tell he was really head and shoulders above the rest of the candidates, Herman Cain is a real American success story, he is honest, he is of excellent moral character and he is highly intelligent, and yes he loves America and I know he will work for the good of our nation,and last but not least, he is not one of the career politicians! As far as our media goes including the newspapers, magazines and the TV alphabet networks go, they are really not worth the time of day, don't waste your time with them, they are all Obama lapdogs who want to see us turn into a Socialist dictator run banana republic! Venezuela or Cuba anyone?

  • Peaches

    Does the media really believe that a thinking conservative would ever dream of voting for someone that came up with a health care program for his state, given the nightmare that Obamacare is? Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann have both told us how many tentacles of Obamacare have already inserted themselves into our freedoms and privacy, the pending taxes, etc., etc. And how hard it is going to be to reverse all of it's laws that are still being written. And all Perry and Romney have offered is waivers for the states- that's not nearly enough or necessary if Obamacare is repealed as it should be. Perry and Romney concern me deeply. They are the statist (or whatever you're calling One World Order these days) candidates, and I'm not certain that Herman Cain is what he seems as well. Newt Gingrich is the smartest and would be the most effective leader at getting things done. He's been here before as Speaker. Michele Bachmann is determined to repeal Obamacare as is Newt. Frankly, Obamacare is my biggest nightmare. It is the most dangerous policy, if you could pick just one of the many assaults on our freedoms.

  • Peaches

    To continue my comment-vote for a candidate with a Congressional voting record that you can research. Perry, Romney and Cain do not have one. Gingrich, Bachmann, Santorum and Paul all have public voting histories. I'm not even counting Huntsman because he is just too elitist and liberal. My second criteria would be to choose someone who could beat Obama in a debate. Americans love a winner and they might be persuaded in favor ot whoever they viewed as the strongest. Newt could probably mop the floor with Obama, and has promised to challenge Obama to eight public debates. Please, folks, vote with your heads, not your hearts. This country is hanging by a thread on the edge of a cliff and we HAVE to get it right. We are out of time.

    God have mercy on and bless America.

    • Warthog0

      The debate thing...No teleprompters!!!!!!

  • Miki

    Ron Paul is NEVER mentioned because he is not someone I, or anyone else I know, would even consider voting for. He's kind of the non-candidate. And I don't believe in the polls...too many of them are based strictly on lies. Nothing about this story is surprising...we let the media decide who the GOP candidate was in the last election...and then, let that same media put O-shyt in office. THAT canNOT be done this go 'round.

  • Fireplace

    FOX news, Laura Ingraham, Hannity, et al absolutely REFUSE to mention Ron Paul. They gush over Cain, Perry, and Romney, yet won't even mention Paul when he won the recent Values Straw Poll- hands down- leaving everyone else eating his dust. After mentioning this hypocracy to friends, we'll sit and watch the news and the bias is so prevelent, folks are yelling at the screen.... yup, truly sad that the news pinheads won't just report- and let US decide!

  • James

    Look, if everyone would just do their own homework, and quit looking to Father/Mother knows best TV, then I believe the choice would become absolutely crystal clear; Ron Paul is our guy, hands down. #1, we have to eliminate the Federal Reserve (a private corporation-not governmental) immediately. This institution, run by the biggest banks on earth, have run our country into the ground, all the while exporting our money and jobs (thru their puppet regimes) overseas. Wall Street is A problem, just not THE problem. The FED is. These underhanded, conniving dog turds are imploding our economy to make everyone dependant, and so they can come in and buy up everything for pennies when we hit bottom. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! We're all in this together, quit letting the corrupt powers that be divide us with petty, irrelevent issues, that pale in comparison to our futures. Once you peek their game, it is no longer effective. If we do not put aside our petty differences and act in unison as one America, then we are doomed. We are already at the precipice, time to put our collective house in order!!

  • paperpushermj

    Still think Open Primaries are a good Idea where the Press picks the winners.

  • W Smith

    A lot of Paulit's won't vote for anyone else. Some of them are Democrats looking to support a weak Republican candidate. A few are principled Republicans who realize the bigger fight before us. Fireplace is apparently one of the former. If we make it to 2012 and do not dispense of our current plight I fear there will be no choices at all going forward.

    To make my point a Wisconsin judge recently wrote in a remote judgment about cows "no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy heard; no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice."

    Either we obviate people like this from the levers of power so they don't hurt themselves (or us) or we run the risk of being removed from our sources of food and everything else we need for that matter. For our own good of course.

    No one of intelligence would listen to anything the media has to say....in fact, they are so irrelevant we pay no attention to any channel except Fox News and Fox Business. The rest of them are a bunch of WH clones, sucking up to the "person" in charge, for what reason, I cannot fathom!!! They won't change because they are in favor of a complete nanny state, socialist/marxist and one person in charge for as long as he lives. We have our sights set on Nov 2012, removing every incumbent except those who have been in less than two years and some of them are questionable!!! This administration has brought the country down to a disgusting example of freeloaders and social leeches, as in evidence by the "occupy where ever" sickening display of drug induced behavior!!! We need to clean this cesspool out, including the cesspool in DC!!!!

  • David B

    Of course the liberal media want Mitt Romney to be the GOP candidate. He's as liberal as John McCain, and like McLame, a RINO in every sense of the word. He's nothing more than Obama-lite, and probably the only GOP candidate who, if nominated, would guarantee us another four years of the Marxist traitor who usurped the presidency in 2008.

  • lphaze

    The fact that the media keeps coming back to Romney makes me very suspicious.

  • KIMBER30

    Michelle Bachmann is a strong no bulls#$& serious candidate. Liberals DO NOT want Republications making history like Obama did. They plan to do this with Hillory Clinton. Put Bachmann and a strong Vice President and wow it will make history and change our country for the good. Please do not think women can not be strong enough to be a President. Look at other women leaders and give her a chance. She at least says what she means and means what she says. those who want to sit and nit-pick, none of us are perfect. Step out of you box and let's show those liberals what we are made of. There is no Democrat party left so I hope many of them join us too.

    I like Herman Cain. He is a social conservative, a fiscal conservative, and he has done very well at getting his message out with very little money.
    There is too much money in politics these days.
    I hope his popularity will continue to grow into the primary season and give the big money candidates a real contest.

  • marc conder

    As a fellow Texan, I have seen and heard Mr. Paul speak out on every topic that strikes his fancy. He is at times, loquatious,discerning and even perspicatious. He is also out of his ever loving mind. I was taught to respect my elders, and I do.However Mr Paul seeks attention like a 6 month old puppy, and yet has the visciouness of a 60 year old drag queen whose second best wig was used to clean the sink. His attitude towards Israel, and its citizens is well known here in Texas, Mr. Paul would just as soon burn them all, and as a 'good libertarian' he will lend you the match. His willingness to throw open our bordera to one and all, to dismantle all of our military, to remove our judiciary, and even to removing basic traffic laws are a new way no dobt, but Mr. Paul represents the 'wrong' way all around. Look to his supporters, political children, and this confounded mess we are in, built on marxist blocks, and assembled by Mao's best intellectual cant does not need more drivel. We need an American, with 'cajones' as we say in Texas, not prunes.

  • Wattsyurz

    What's really amazing is that Fox got caught in their manipulation, used it as a news blip, and then immediately continued to push their favorites again. Fox admitted they were ignoring Ron Paul, did a five minute interview, and then continued to ignore everybody but Perry and Romney. It's unbelievable how many candidates there are, and how most of them are totally ignored. How are we supposed to evaluate, say, John Huntsman, Gary Johnson, or Newt Gingrich, when their views are intentionally ignored? At some point, we may have to force equal air time. Although I don't

  • Jersey Bill

    That's about right. The liberal media will be shifting gears as 2012 draws closer. And, it's working!! Most people don't read political items, as presented here. They rely on the media and tv. That's why most people are political morons; they're not stupid or lefties, they just choose to be uninformed. That's where the danger lies! Obama and his crowd know it, and the opposition is so worried about "who's conservative enough" that there's a real chance the most negative, inept, America-disliking president ever to be reelected. We can't ;et this happem to our country! Tell the Repubs and the Tea Party to get behind a person that CAN WIN! The media wants the weakest nominee. DO YOU WANT THEM AND OBAMA TO CONTINUE RUNNING AMERICA??

  • patriotrenegade

    Unfortunately cain is their bot too. Former fed "reserve" chief in KC, met with bilderbergers, and attended the treasonous NAU conference. A three strike globalist, like perry, huntsman, newtie, bammie, daay bush cheney, cahtuh, kerry, mccain, LIEberman, snowejob, collins, the list goes on. The tea and conservative vote has been easily split between two bilderberg candidates: perry and cain. The bad guys own 4 0f 6 horses in the repub race and 5 of 7 counting bammie. Only Romney and Paul are clean. Nice job you rocket scientists. You're gonna elect another bilderberger. Please do some research on every candidate, do NOT vote until you do.

They fight the wars, they bleed the blood and THEY support Dr. Ron Paul. Does that mean ANYTHING TO YOU? There are "fat-cat" supporters for EVERY candidate BUT Paul....think about that for a moment. What "favors" will be expected in return? How fast will the lobbyist line up to give their "support" and expect NOTHING in return? Dr. Paul has millions of supporters, grass roots from the core and believe that a politician who has repeatedly stood firm on OUR Constitution, STRONG National Defense, peaceful tactics to achieve what is needed to govern and NOT jump at killing innocent people as the war mongers of this nation LOVE to do. This man is outstanding in his intelligence of this government, he has had to watch the dirty deeds with tied hands FOR YEARS! Don't think for one minute he would let it continue, it would be halted by what ever means "constitutionally" possible to reign in the corruption, the back room deals and the illegal actions of this government and hopefully the politicians. He has 30 yrs experience for God sakes, don't think for one minute he wouldn't know what to do. People are so use to the same old crap, they don't know what to think of an honest WORKING politician. I DO support our troops and respect the blood shed to keep this country free, DO YOU?

    You have it correct.

    I will NEVER be able to support a candidate who so disregards the necessity of defending Israel. It didn't occur to me the writer was advocating for Ron Paul and the first candidate who came to mind at his conclusion was Rick Santorum. The USA must stand with Israel, our ONLY democratic ally in the mideast. If we do not stand with her, we do so at our own peril. I support states' rights, but because the central gov't has been over-stepping its boundaries for decades, there are many battles that have to be fought at the national level. I cannot envision Congressman Paul doing that.

  • della

    Whoever the media supports, run from them as fast as you can. They will choose a weakling in hopes of Obama getting re-elected. Too many people are being guided by the media instead of using their brains that God gave them. I could not support Ron Paul. Something is not right with him. At this point, I don't know who is the best choice for America. I will keep listening and praying.

      I am right there with you, Della. I too, still look for the best one who reflects my values. I like Bachmann, Santorum, Gingrich, Cain most of all. They make sense to me.
