IOWANS: Show up & support Ron Paul (don't let the vote riggers win)!

Just a shout out to all my fellow Ron Paul supporters.

Don't let the corrupt establishment politicians (both the socialist iberals and war-mongering neocons), bought and paid for mainstream media and greedy globalist elite decieve the public anymore and ruin the movement's momentum.

Please get the word out, show up and vote and demand honest and fair elections. Challenge the system and don't let the same old defunct guard continue to destroy our great country!

From a dutchman living in Thailand. (To escape the collapsing european fiat system)

I hope Ron Paul will win and continue to plant seeds of liberty and freedom.

Good luck!

Thanks Brainless!

It's funny, I think many expats and non-US citizens get the big picture and see through the BS smokescreens of the liberal Democrat &  faux Republican Neocons better than most Americans currently residing in the US.

Glad to see some sense outside the US. Happy New Year!

Hopefully Ron Paul overcomes all the campaign sabotage, false media reports & blackouts, Neocon attacks, possible voter manipulation and either wins Iowa outright or comes in a very close and strong 2nd. Thanks!

A Brief Iowa Update

I posted this on another thread, but since this one is more recent, I thought I'd post it here, too:

Goes211 asked me to provide an update from Iowa, so here goes:

The months leading up to the Iowa caucus can always be a circus, but it seems even wilder this time around. We've been in Iowa for nearly eight years, so this is the second presidential caucus we've experienced. It seems odd, considering there were both Republican and Democratic presidential caucuses in 2008, and only a Republican presidential caucus now, but the activity seems much greater this year. All of the candidates, excepting Jon Huntsman, have made repeated visits to Iowa in the past months. My family and I went to see a brief speech by Ron Paul and his son, Senator Rand Paul, just this afternoon. We receive a minimum of a dozen calls per day related to the caucus, either pre-recorded messages or surveys. When we are away from home and later check messages, at least half of the messages and missed calls are political ones. Caller ID on some of the calls say 000-000-0000, which I haven't seen before. Anyway, it's a rather bizarre experience, and I'll be rather happy when tomorrow's caucus has come and gone.

I was interviewed over the phone by a Wall Street Journal reporter a few days ago, while we were still visiting my wife's family at their farm in northern Iowa. I haven't seen an article published as a result of this interview, but the discussion was quite interesting. The reporter was particularly intrigued by the large number of people who were Obama supporters in 2008 who are now supporting Ron Paul. Indeed, we have quite a number of former Obama supporters staffing our all-vounteer county headquarters, and they are particularly dedicated. I have spent some time at our volunteer headquarters, and the diversity of people who walk in and inquire about Ron Paul is striking. Disaffected Democrats, disaffected Republicans, staunch independents, third-party members, and the previously apolitical. I've even met a couple of people who had seen the Crash Course; those were fun conversations!

I won't bother making any predictions, as I'd likely be wrong. I have no insider information; most everything I know is already widely reported in the media (biased though it often is). I think Ron Paul will do well, coming in first or second, but Santorum has experienced a recent surge, so several outcomes are possible. The last major poll gave Romney 24% and Paul 22%, with a margin of error of 4%. Still, around 40% of likely caucus goers are still undecided on a candidate, according to a poll just a day or so ago. A big emphasis is being placed upon the caucus speech makers; these are brief, 2-3 minute, presentations given by volunteers in support of their candidate at each of the caucuses. A good speech has the potential to sway the opinions of many of the 40% of undecided attendees. I will be giving a speech at my caucus, which is actually a "super-caucus", consisting of all six precincts in my city. I'll probably be addressing a crowd of a thousand or more, so I need to go and finish up my speech.

That's all from here for now...

Thanks for the update Doc!

Really excited about a strong showing in Iowa (hopefully a #1 finish) and then another top 2 or 3 finish in New Hampshire. That will really rally and motivate the troops nationwide. The enthusiasm will spill over to other states and parts of the country.

I'll do my part of "left coast" as the election picks up and the campaign travels here.

Even if Dr. Paul does not win the corrupted Republican nomination he's going to put on the best 3rd party run in US history  and finishing strong in the Republican nomination race can only help that.

Many kudos, much respect and great appreciation for your efforts in Iowa. Thanks!
