Ron Paul finishes a strong 2nd in New Hampsire Primaries w/ 23% of vote

Romney may have won going away in what was basically his backyard home state but Paul has now finished a close 3rd in Iowa (less than 4% behind 1st in what I think was fishy last minute results) and an even stronger 2nd in New Hampshire.

All the other candidates have experienced up and down campaigns with none sustaining strong steady growing support outside of Paul and Romney.

Last week's flavor of the week, Santorum (look up what his name means at www.SpreadingSantorum.com for a good chuckle), finished tied for 4th with another candidate on the way down (Gingrich) with both receiving LESS than 10% of the vote. That was basically a last place finish since Bachman recently dropped out and Perry had pretty much insinutaed the same and got LESS than 1% of the vote.

The Liberty Movement is alive, strong and growing despite general media blackout, obvious mainstream media bias, mainstream media negative press and voter manipulation/intimidation tactics by both the GOP and Democratic parties (for example the Iowa GOP and media threatening to remove Iowa as the first primary if they elected Paul).

Take a closer look at the issues and candidates please. Don't fall for the Neocon tricks. I'm kind of taking for granted that by now most reasonable people know that Obama is an awful President (tanking economy, extension of Patriot Act, NDAA, declaring wars without congressional approval, war-mongering in Middle East & North Africa, devaluation of dollar through more money printing, massive debt spending and bank bailouts, etc...)

There's a reason why several of the Democratic party's top strategists have said they were cheering for Romney because they thought he would be among the the easiest GOP candidates to beat in a general election while at the same time attacking Ron Paul. Obama receives the most Wall Street campaign funding and major support from people like George Soros for one reason, PURE CORRUPTION!.

Do your own thinking and homework and give Paul an honest look. Thanks!

 I think one of Ron Paul's

 I think one of Ron Paul's strengths is the ability to pull the independents in his direction.  NH Independents number 40% of the registered voters and Ron Paul's strong showing there shows that he can pull the undecided towards him.  If nominated, he will have a very large chance of defeating the failure in chief we have today.

Totally agree Tim...

Many independents would go Paul's way. Many of those same independents voted for Obama last time and are greatly disallusioned with him now.

I agree, outside of the stubborn traditionalists and war mongerers within the Republican party and ultra leftist socialist liberals in the Democratic party, Paul would play very well with most sensible and open voters.

I am registered as a Republican but am changing it to independent going forward. Both parties are the same old phony tired corrupt mess. However, I do see why candidates have to run with one party early on in order to get any coverage. The mainstream media would completely ignore and/or attack (if threatened) any 3rd party candidate as much or even more than Paul (who's running as a Republican). TPTB want to keep perpetuating this deceitful two party/one system charade and will block any credible 3rd party threat. The US desperately needs a legitimate 3rd party that is treated fairly and objectively by the media. Much easier said than done though. 

The Paul campaign is sending a shock wave and scaring the pants off the system. Despite all their tricks and tactics his campaign has grown and is gaining momentum (now #2 in many polls). More people are waking up. Unfortunately not enough yet.

Paul is not a perfect candidate but he's head and shoulders better than the defunct Obama (I don't understand how anybody with an uncorrupted brain can support him) and the plastic, change his mind with the political winds and uninspiring Romney (sort of a white version of Obama on many issues). 

If you support Paul please do spread the word and if you have not taken a close look at him please do so. Don't rely on the ridiculously biased, bought and paid for and lacking journalistic integrity mainstream media for your only info on Paul. Thanks!

Best,

JG

RINO"S Against Paul

Clear Channel owns more radio stations (850) than anyone else in the United States.  They also own Premiere Radio Networks, the company that syndicates the radio shows of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck, among others.  Needless to say, Clear Channel basically owns conservative talk radio in the United States.  So who owns Clear Channel?  Well, it turns out that Bain Capital is one of the primary owners of Clear Channel

Thanks poor aristocrat!

The bought and paid for main-stream media (MSM), war-mongering faction of the Republican Party and the most socialist divisons of the liberal Democratic party have all been trying to marginalize Dr. Paul.

The MSM either ignores him or constantly attacks him and tries to distort or take his positions out of context. The right-wing Neocons try to paint him as nut and fringe candidate and the liberals attack his anti-big gov't and scrutiny on the Fed. 

Unless one takes it upon himself you are not going to get a fair, accurate or balanced read on Dr. Paul from these sources.

Good to see others noticing he is literally the only uncorrupted candidate speaking the truth and dead to right on the most important issues (fiscal policy, general economic policy, sound money, national debt cuts, foreign policy and non-intervention and the protection of our constitutional rights and liberties).

The Republican Party is not going to nominate him because they are a bunch of big bank corrupted and military-industrial complex sell- and war-mongersouts. However, the better Dr. Paul does in the Republican race the greater the chance he can continue this movement beyond the Republican convention and stand a decent chance of making a big impact as a 3rd Party candidate. A vote for any of the other canidates is a wasted vote and a guarantee of more of the same whether you vote for Obama or Romney. They are really not much different no matter what anybody tries to tell you.

Continue the conversation and please spread to word to voting citizens. Anyone can help by first getting educated about Dr. Paul's campaign and then choosing to either volunteer or donate. Thanks!

Thanks GregRoberts...definitely did not know that.

Although the main-stream media (or prestitute as Gerald Celente likes to call them) bias against Ron Paul is clear and TPTB often manipulate most media I had no idea of Bain Capital's (Romney's company) ownership of conservative media was so signifcant shows. Makes ALLOT of sense for him.

Boy, poor old Dr. Paul really has the deck stacked against him doesn't he, LOL. Yet another challnege to overcome for the Liberty Movement.

Oh well, whatever happens Gen X and Gen Y already have a healthy distrust of the banksters, the military-industrial complex and a corrupted congress, get much of our info outside the gov't controlled media and are far more wise now about all these shenanigans. It's going to get harder to dupe more people in future elections but there are stil faaar too many uneducated, ignorant, indifferent, corrupted and/or just plain dim people out there now.

Frightenly, as the public wakes up more the gov't will grow larger, become more restrictive, penalizing and violent and basically end up disregardng most of our constitutional rights. That's where we'll literally have a fight in our hands.

Buy and save your precious metals folks, accumulate more preps, create your own water, food and energy solutions, acquire important survival skills, be more practical and apply long-term thinking to your asset and time allocation, learn to defend yourself and create a more independent and sustainable lifestyle. These are all things the gov't does NOT want you to do.

Good luck to all and thanks for pointing that out GregRoberts!

for what it's worth......

I agree with Ron Paul's isolationist stance on foreign policy, but I disagree with just about everything else he stands for - small government, reduced social welfare, the Tea Party line.....

He conveniently forgets the fact that the US Government acts the way it does militarily to increase its share of other nations' resources, to make more money for its wealthy. (Explained in "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" )

Still, if he gets to become President,  his harsh solutions may well cause a revolution at home and peace abroad. Which would be quite a good outcome.

BTW this libertarian view is shared by Alex Jones, Tyler Durden (Zero Hedge), Jim Puplava, Lew Rockwell, and lots more, whose criticisms of the current financial system are correct, but whose solutions (a truly free market) are anathema to me.

There are NO solutions....

We are all screwed, Ron Paul or no Ron Paul....

I agree with everything you said, with only the highlighted quote as an exception. There are solutions, but the establishment isn't interested in allowing them to go through.

http://greedybastards.com/ is one avenue. There are lots of well thought out approaches, but IMHO a Constitutional Convention (or something with broad ranging reforms) is the only way we will get to really debate the future of our society.

Hmmmm.....  the ONLY thing I saw there that makes any sense is "cancel the debt instead of printing money".

The rest is claptrap.  Where's the mention of Peak Oil and the Export Land Model?  Where's the emntion of over population and out of control Exponential Growth?  This guy's wnating to continue Business as Usual only different.

I still think we're screwed.

YOU are on your own, and if you don't take private steps to survive the looming disaster and rely on the Matrix to come up with solutions, even Dylan Ratigan's, you're staring disaster in the face.
