Official Polls? Scientific Polls? Margin of Error? Straw Polls?

Alright, it's time we address the huge piece of disinformation coming out of the mainstream media regarding polls.

The media keeps telling us Ron Paul is a "longshot" because he only registers 3-4% in polls. However, they will only consider a couple of major sources for polls like Gallop and Zogby. Well does anyone know how these national poll companies figure out who the "likely voters" are that they will call?

"Likely voters" are basically those who voted in the last republican primary. Tell me, mainstream media, how in the world is this "scientific" or even close to accurate, when a candidate like Ron Paul is drawing more than half of his support from people who were not registered as Republicans in 2004? Paul draws in former democrats, libertarians, independents, and constitutionalists. These people would never get called in a poll!

On top of that I have another major problems with these old-line media polls. They only call people on their land telephone lines! Since Ron Paul is getting a lot of support from the 18-29 age group, and many of them use cell phones only, it's not likely that these pollsters will be calling much from that age group.

The polls are fixed and completely inaccurate. It's time we stopped paying attention to them and instead look at other real life meaningful polls like text message polls, straw polls, and online polls where people can only vote once. Ron Paul by the way is doing just fine in each of these categories.

Ignore the media disinformation and support Ron Paul for president 2008!

A Breath of Fresh Air

This guy is absolutely right. It's NOT about political parties this time. People need to break free of their "tribes"!

Ron Paul: Our Power, Our Responsibility

I don't normally post these music videos, but this one is really powerful.

Rudy Giuliani in London

A couple days ago, the mainstream media reported that former NYC Mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani was in LONDON, ENGLAND, meeting with Tony Blair, Margret Thatcher, and raise money for his campaign of course!

The reporters questioned nothing about this event, as if it is perfectly normal for candidates to hop around the globe and meet with world leaders to raise campaign funds.

There is no honest reporting left in America. Just after this Giuliani report, they launched into the latest on the OJ Simpson arrest. It's not important what Rudy was doing in England, but we must get to the bottom of this celebrity tragedy!

I want to know what he was doing there. Obviously, it was not for fundraising- if this were true, why wouldn't Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, and even Ron Paul be flying overseas to get these funds? And if it were true, WHO is donating to Giuliani's campaign over there? Tony Blair? Thatcher? Come on.

I find it VERY interesting how much time he spends in London. In fact, Rudy Giuliani JUST HAPPENED to be in London on the day of the 7/7/05 bombings! What a coincidence.

It seems to me that Rudy Giuliani is involved in some international affairs. What are they?

We have a right to know, but our media has completely failed us.

Ron Paul Addresses Banking Hearing on Moral Hazard

Ron Paul has it right once again.
The poor and the middle class get screwed while the elites make out like bandits. The Bernake/Fed policy is bankrupt, and is destroying the dollar, as well as the wealth of the American people.

Ron Paul easily wins this debate but there really are no winners, as most of the country loses.

Freedom of Speech?

I've seen the video of Andrew Meyer, the kid who got assaulted by cops when John Kerry visted University of Florida Monday. You can view one of the videos here:

I'm completely disgusted!

The kid was TASERED for god's sake, and this was AFTER he was handcuffed!

He simply hogged the mike and asked Kerry some tough questions.

He was also a Ron Paul supporter, but the point is, this police brutality will continue unless we bring back freedom, and support Ron Paul's ideas.

Ron Paul Rally at USC

I made it up to L.A. (from San Diego) yesterday along with a few of my Ron Paul meetup friends to attend the rally and proceeding benefit cocktail reception.

The whole afternoon was a blast! Ron's speeches were great and we got the word out to a lot of students on campus. He emphasized the horrendous drug war policies and how our solution for drug addicts is jail, which is equivalent to putting alcoholics in jail. He also talked about ending the war and getting rid of the Federal Reserve altogether.

Later at the cocktail reception, he told the crowd that no matter what happens with this campaign, we ARE getting the freedom message out there and this is by no means a waste of time. I also found out he was on his college swim team which was a thrill since I was also a swimmer in college!

All of us were blown away by the energy this 72-year old man has. I'm half his age and I don't think I could do all that he does!

Meeting Ron Paul was something I won't forget and I also got a Ron Paul-signed copy of the constitution!

Ron Paul Facts

I attended a screening of the new documentary "Zeitgeist" last night here in San Diego. It's a mind-blowing movie about the creation and implementation of myths in our society....I think everyone should see it. But that's a topic for another post!

There was some discussion afterwards and there were a few people in the audience with a definite left/liberal leaning view of the world. I heard a few insane/incorrect comments that I'd like to address here:

1) One guy stood up and started ripping Ron Paul and libertarianism. The movie made a point about getting rid of the Department of Education. Apparently this guy took that as meaning to get rid of education altogether! Not what the movie was saying, and not what Ron Paul has been saying. The point about getting rid of the Dept of Education is to take the FEDERAL government out of educating our children. Since they have taken over education has been a mess. We could do a MUCH better job at the local level- and our kids would not have to be inundated with the propaganda starting at such a young age.

2) The same guy also claimed that Ron Paul is a "corporatist" who wants the "free market to run things". The second part of his statement is somewhat true- Ron Paul favors free market solutions over government solutions wherever possible. But the first part is completely incorrect and outrageous! In fact, Ron Paul is one of the only candidates running for president in either of the 2 major parties that is NOT a corporatist! All of the so-called leading Repbulicans and Democrats running for president are bought and paid for by corporate interests. Ron Paul is most definitely NOT bought and paid for, and consistently rails against corporations and corporate welfare! There's a reason why he is called Dr. No!

3) One woman said we need to support candidates who truly oppose the war. Then she said there are only 2 candidates who will end the war- Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel! As if Ron Paul didn't exist. Well, it may be tough to believe but yes he is running as a Republican but is truly going to end the war, as well as bring home the troops from the other 100+ countries around the globe, as well as prevent additional military adventurism by our government by cutting off the funding (federal reserve, income tax).

Lots of myths still out there about the 2 parties, Ron Paul, and solutions to problems. Fighting government corruption with more government is a losing battle.

Don't forget to tune in to the Bill O'Reilly show tonight, Fox News, 8:00 pm EST, where Ron Paul will be a guest!

Ron Paul Wins Fox Text Poll

I love this :16 video. The sniveling Hannity can't stand having to make this announcement!

Mike Huckabee: For real or a media creation?

Watching the Fox News debate last night from New Hampshire, it seemed that there was a definite concerted effort to highlight Mike Huckabee, possibly to move him into the media-created "top tier" of GOP candidates.
I have never met, seen, or heard of a supporter of Mike Huckabee for president. Where are they? Are they hiding? Are they anywhere on the internet? Why is he suddenly gaining recognition? What is he offering that's different from the rest of the field?

All I hear from Huckabee is slogans and rhetoric.

"Divided we fall"? "We must stay in Iraq for our honor"??????

This is utter crap! There is no substance to these words and Mike Huckabee is just another political hack. The media suddenly focusing on him is an obvious ploy to take attention away from Ron Paul. The good thing for us is, it won't work! In fact, focusing on Huckabee will actually help Ron Paul. The little squabble last night over the war launched Paul into the spotlight.

What would that debate have been like without Ron Paul last night? Watching paint dry would likely be more fun.

The bottom line is Mike Huckabee is merely a distraction. He has nothing new to offer and has zero chance of winning the GOP nomination.

To the Neocons

Ron Paul is the only GOP candidate who can defeat Hillary Clinton.

If McCain, Romney, Thompson, OR Giuliani win the GOP nomination, they will get smoked in the general election. The reason? 70% of Americans are against this war and although the reality is that Hillary is no different than the pro-war neocons, most people identify this war with Republicans- and therefore will absolutely not vote for another Republican who is for the war.

But Ron Paul has the democrats shaking in their boots. A pro-peace republican who wants to legalize marijuana? He makes too much sense even to the far left! This is why liberal blogs like the Daily Kos are already routinely running hit pieces on Ron Paul, and often will not even type in his name so he doesn't get picked up on google searches!

Rudy McRomneyson loses to Hillary in a landslide....Ron Paul gives us conservatives a REAL option in the fight to bring back constitutional values.

Go Ron Paul!

Ron Paul wins in Maryland!

Ron Paul wins Maryland State Fair straw poll

This straw poll took place at the Maryland State Fair. You could vote from Friday, August 24, 2007 10 AM - Monday, September 03, 2007 10 PM. Only about 1000 votes were cast, indicating how bad the situation for the republican party is. 1000 votes at an event lasting more than a week...pretty bad. This comes after the GOP got less than half of what they expected in Iowa, and after the GOP had to slash its expectations at the Texas straw poll, from 10,000 to 3,000...and even then only 1300 votes were cast.

The straw poll numbers will be confirmed in a news release tomorrow, but here is the inside scoop from someone who helped count the ballots. There'll be a news release from the MD GOP tomorrow to make the numbers official.
Ron Paul 263 votes - 27.3%
Giuliani 220 votes -22.8%
Thompson 188 votes -19.5%
Mitt Romney - 89 (10%)
John McCain - 54 (6%)
Mike Huckabee - 35 (4%)
Tom Tancredo - 16 (2%)
Sam Brownback - 12 (1%)
Duncan Hunter - 3 (0%)
Write Ins:
New Gingrich - 17 (2%)
Bob Ehrilich - 3 (0%) (Ehrlich is former Republican Governor of MD)
Other - 11 (1%)
Spoiled ballots - 15 (2%) (e.g. voted for more than one candidate)
Total votes cast - 926

On top of such a bad showing, the Maryland GOP is broke and has numerous problems with membership. In fact the Maryland GOP is $50,500 in debt and only has $4,615 in cash remaining. Numbers can be seen in this article.

This win is also important, because it shows just how bad things really didn't cost anything to vote, and you could cast your vote over a period lasting more than a week...and still only 963 votes were cast.

And we all know the situation will be even worse during primaries, where you'll actually have to go out of your way to vote in the primary. And unlike Ron Paul supporters, these other guys just don't have the spark to get out of bad to cast their vote. And who can blame them? The current front runners cannot be called republicans with a straight face. We have a cross dresser who married his cousin, a lobbyist who lobbied for an abortion group, Mr. Money Bags who is trying to buy this election and a drunken sailor who pissed away millions in donations. And of course you have a whole bunch of guys who don't even believe in evolution(Huckabee, Brownback, Tancredo).
