  1. One thing Ron Paul will NOT do is define what a right actually is.

    Ron Paul thinks a blob of protoplasm has rights…and so do most of his whacked out followers.

  2. Way to go Ron Paul!!! Looks like we’re on our way toward change. Let’s keep this train rolling.

  3. What great news to wake up to. Made my day so far!

    RON PAUL 2012 !!

  4. Ron paul will win, even if they try to rig it.

    But i’m worried, because look what happened when JFK won and tried to implement his plan to take them down. I can see the ruling class having him assassinated, possibly even before he wins.

    • This is the same thing that worries me. I think a lot of people feel the same. Lets hope that nothing like that happens.

      RON PAUL 2012!

  5. 44% ? – WOOHOO, WOOHOO, WOOHOO.

  6. Was at the Ron Paul speech at the Campaign for Liberty conference in Reno, NV and it was so refreshing to see 9/11 Truthers, Tea Party Members, Librarians, and even some Democrats and Republicans there is support of Ron Paul. There were people from every walks of life there, and it shows you that people are amassing in numbers to fight for this country.

    I was surprised that Vince Vaughn appeared, spoke about Ron Paul and introduced him. So even LA stars are speaking out in support of him, we just all need to support him, do everything we can. Infowarriors need to mass together into committees, we all have to be able to say that we did everything to get him into office.

    • Yeah truthers were a necessary element four years ago as well. Will Ron Paul stand up for a new 9/11 investigation this time around or will he WILT again? This is an important question not just a bitter criticism.

      If Ron Paul WILTS again he will lose and rightly so. He cannot win without truthers.

      I bet he WILTS. Such a shame.


      • He can’t agree to do this BEFORE he wins the office, only after.
        They would only use it against him pre-election. Thats for sure.
        The establishment would use ANYTHING they could to stop him.

  7. Wow maybe he’ll finally start pulling in the lemming vote.


  8. I never knew why they called it a straw poll.
    It’s got to do with “wind blowing” so that’s got to be tongue in cheek in this case.
    Also, look up ROBERT’S RULES OF ORDER.
    Try to learn something new every day.
    (me, I’m staying under the bridge)

  9. My, my. The dinosaur media has a problem.

    I figured they would pretend this never happened, but shut my mouth. Here it is on the front page of the websites of both cnn and msnbc..

    Here’s a little gem from their cnn:

    He has gained momentum in the race for the White House in recent weeks, according to the latest CNN/ORC International Poll. Among current GOP candidates, Paul placed third in the poll with 13%, following Romney in second place with 21% and Perry in first with 32%.

    His win came the same day he celebrated Constitution Day with another one of his “money bomb” fundraisers.

    At some point, MSM will have to admit that Ron Paul actually exists, and that there is an unprecedented groundswell of public support behind him. The other “choices” are unacceptable. MSM can either run around, pretend Ron isn’t there and makes fools of themselves in the process. Or they can get with god damned program and accede to our wishes like they’re supposed to.

    Frankly, Ron Paul is America’s last best hope. After him, it’s, uh, a great deal of “unpleasantness” on the part of the people.

  10. new POLITICO headline:

    Perry, Romney, Bachman Top 4 in new Strawpoll.


    Perry, Romney good showing in Strawpoll, Bachman 4th.


    Perry 2nd, Romney 3rd in California Strawpoll!


    • Too funny man!
      Go Ron Paul!!

    • Perry edges out Romney in California, who falls to third. Bachmann trailing amidst reports of multiple voting.

  11. let’s all agree if there is an assassination attempt on Ron Paul, we riot and lynch the shadow government from washington light poles.

    I personally am tired of them killing our presidents any time they try to fix the monetary policy of the country.

  12. Ron the man!
    Ron, you keep scaring the Rothschilds and the rest of the globalist scum it will certainly force their hand at something.

  13. watch the mainstream media take the poll chart and read it up side down and say ron paul was last place. fox would do something like that.

  14. The Revolution is at hand.
    We must go foward and crush the globalists.
    Ron Paul our only hope for our Republic and our Contitution.
    Infowarriors advance to the frontlines and pass out the information.
    This is our secret weapon….

  15. From the people that brought you Schwarzenegger, this Fall they bring you: political common sense.
