    Whether the media establishments want to admit it or not, and believe me they don't, Ron Paul IS the 'front runner' for the republican primary. Despite voracious denials and vitriolic arguments from almost every quarter to the contrary, he is the only one with a chance of shutting out Obama for the presidency in 2012. He appeals to all sides of the aisle, and is attracting the much sought after independent swing vote almost as fast as he has the youth of the nation. The Internet is indisputably Ron Paul country as countless polls and google trends have repeatedly shown. The gradual change in political rhetoric flowing out of Washington, D.C. over the last 3 years reflects an explosion of interest in the freedom message he spreads so tirelessly. The continuous growth in popularity of talk and news shows focusing on freedom and the Constitution broadcasts loud and clear the rising prominence of issues he has brought to the debate. For anyone with any powers of discernment, it's a no-brainer.

    [FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]So why do media pundits, dime a dozen politicians, and innumerable experts of self-aggrandized consequence spend great swathes of time, effort, and someone's money working so hard to convince the people otherwise? You can't turn on a TV, pick up a paper or surf the Internet without encountering the words "He can't win," or some other lame variation repeated ad nauseam with great gusto. According to all the most acclaimed talking heads, that mythical beast "The Front Runner" has yet to be seen on the horizon and is still to arise from some unknown lair, "blazing a new trail" of GOP fame and success across political skies sometime in the not too distant future. Their blind adherence to this tired refrain boggles the mind. Personally, I can find only one reason for the constant repudiation...fear. Fear of the known...Ron Paul, and fear of the unknown...future largess. The status-quo is cornered and its biggest backers are flailing in desperation through media and political mouthpieces. [/FONT]



    [FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]With decades of consistency on record as proof, it is well known by all in Washington that Ron Paul will not compromise his principles for money, power or personal gain. Ron Paul is simply...not for sale. Lobbyists for special interests have never been able to rent his vote. This is such an undisputed reality that they don't even darken the door of his congressional office. His opinion can not be leased by the highest bidder, nor his silence ensured through threats and coercion. He is a man who stands his ground, refusing to back down, flip-flop, or play the political game of corporate footsie that entangles so many on the Hill. This is the kind of strength America not just needs, but deep down hungers for in a president. America does not need a president with the strength to circumvent law by executive order, ignore Congress and engage in needless conflicts, or break international and common law to achieve a victory. Those who stand to lose the most under a president who would not compromise the peoples' liberties, the Constitution or the rule of law for any reason are deathly afraid of Ron Paul. [/FONT]

    FULL ARTICLE

    Wanna have a bit of fun? Read the Twenty - Five Rules Of Disinformation then compare them to what the media and people here on BB are accusing Ron Paul of.


    And ask yourself . . .


    "So why do media pundits, dime a dozen politicians, and innumerable experts of self-aggrandized consequence spend great swathes of time, effort, and someone’s money working so hard to convince the people otherwise?"

    I love that phrase "experts of self-aggrandized consequence".

    There's more than a few of them right here on this very board. You know who you are. Already trying to convince us all that a vote for Ron paul would surely bring about "marauding bands of crazed, drug abusing prostitutes".

    Wonder how many hours passed between the time Ron Paul first made the announcement of his presidential run and this . . .

    "Ron Paul wants to "legalize heroin" is touted gleefully to choruses of "and prostitution!" <-- LINK

    was posted right here on BB? Not that many I'd wager!

    Does the idea of individual liberty scare you "experts of self-aggrandized consequence" (again you know who you are) that much that you'd rather see your own country go down in flames at the hands of "the special interests of: corporate cronyism; militarism for profit influence and empire; centrally planned debt management, counterfeiting, fraud and currency debasement" and "those who would maintain the status quo, despite its almost certain destructive end" than support a real man of uncompromised principle???

    The Primaries are about 9 months away. That is a political lifetime. There are some other very good Rep candidates. We just don't know enough about them yet - but we will soon.

    And I disagree with you about Paul being the ONLY one able to beat Obama. There are several who could start giving BO an unemployment check. Again the election is a political lifetime away. Eighteen months - and a lot can happen. If the jobless rate and gas prices go down, and the economy picks up, Americans often select the incumbent. Also it depends if Obama can get his '08 base out to vote again.

    There will be 2,422 delegates to the RNC. 1,212 are needed to win the nomination.
    Poncho, about a prediction - at least how many delegates will Paul win during the Primary season?

    I predict that by the time the polls close on Mar 13, 2012; Paul will no longer be a viable candidate
    Chronologically list of primaries

    any other predictions?

    There's two choices Salty, Ron Paul and "the special interests of: corporate cronyism; militarism for profit influence and empire; centrally planned debt management, counterfeiting, fraud and currency debasement" and "those who would maintain the status quo, despite its almost certain destructive end".

    Seems like a "no brainer" to me. I'll choose a man of uncompromised principle and you choose whom ever. But don't be complaining when whom ever turns out to be just like the last few whom evers.

    All you'll hear from me at that point is I told ya so, again! :smilewinkgrin:

    The only prediction I'll make is this Salty. Ron Paul will not be our next president.

    So all the "media pundits, dime a dozen politicians, and innumerable experts of self-aggrandized consequence" can just relax you'll get all "the special interests of: corporate cronyism; militarism for profit influence and empire; centrally planned debt management, counterfeiting, fraud and currency debasement" and "those who would maintain the status quo, despite its almost certain destructive end" you could ever wish for once again.

    Unless by some miracle a mass awakening happens in this country real soon. Of course I could be wrong maybe a mass awakening will happen in this country but one thing is fer certain sure, there won't be one happening at BB! Y'all are just way to deep in the false left vs right paradigm for that to ever happen here! Anyone care for a nice tastey Cicada? I got a billion of em within easy reach! :smilewinkgrin:

    It doesn't take much brain power to deduce that one. Good job Sherlock!

    I would enjoy having Ron Paul for President. I voted for him in the last primary. It's not going to happen though, but it isn't because of some vast conspiracy.

    No. It's because people will read about what he says & does more than what he has actually said and done.
